Data collected from visitors (“Visitors”) who access information, content or services published or offered on this website is processed by LinkTime (“Company”, “we” or “us”) in its capacity as both provider of this website and a service provider. The above-mentioned information, content or services will be referred to hereinafter as the “Digital Presence” of LinkTime.
Protection of your personal data is of great importance to us. We therefore, as a matter of routine, handle your personal data responsibly and in compliance with the applicable statutory data protection provisions and postal legislation.
This Data Protection Policy contains information for you about our data processing methods. We explain what data will be processed by us whenever you access this website.
The owner of the data collected is Shenzhen LinkTime Technology Co., LTD., Block B, Liyuan Business Square, #4351 Dongbin Road, Nanshan District, Shenzhen, PRC.
In principle, our Digital Presence can be used without disclosing any personal data. As is common practice with many websites, certain data such as IP addresses and other usage information, is collected automatically and then analysed and processed anonymously by our web analysis software. By using our Digital Presence you consent to the collection, use and disclosure of this data in accordance with the terms of this Data Protection Policy.
Our web servers automatically log every visit in a temporary log file. User-specific data (such as the IP address of the requesting computer and/or device, identification data of the browser used, the operating system of the requesting computer and/or device, the amount of data transferred, the name of the Internet Service Provider, the date and time of access) and technical data (such as the name and URL of the referring web page when the website was accessed via a link and, additionally, the search term if it was accessed via a search engine) are logged and analysed anonymously. First and foremost, this data is needed to enable the use of our content (connection set-up), and is also used for system-related purposes, such as technical administration and system security.
We do not use your data for any other purposes, unless you have given your express consent to additional data processing when using certain services.
In some cases, to use some of our online services, you must provide some personal data (without login). Personal data is information about personal or factual characteristics relating to a specific natural person. This includes information such as your name, country, telephone number, e-mail address, school, school card, employment and job title. We only process personal data when you decide to send it to us; for example, by filling out an online form, as part of a registration, survey, competition, information request or sending us a message via the contact forms.
In these cases, we will only ask you to provide the personal data we require to perform the services we provide. The information you provide us with will be recorded in our IT systems.
Collecting data helps us to develop and improve our Digital Presence, optimize our range of services and respond to your requests. We may use the data we collect about you for the following purposes:
1. to enable your use of the Digital Presence;
2. for internal, system-related purposes, such as technical administration and system security;
3. for statistical purposes, in order to enable us to tailor the Digital Presence more closely to your needs through the anonymous evaluation of general user behaviour (see section 4.3 below);
4. to provide online services and contractually-compliant processing of these services.
When you have given your express consent or - if so stipulated by legal regulations - have not raised an objection, we may also use this data for marketing purposes.

Cookies also allow us to tailor the Digital Presence to your interests and to improve its functionality.
Our web server places cookies in the memory of your computer and/or device. These cookies allow us an anonymous evaluation of general user behaviour, based on the number of visitors, for the purpose of optimizing our Digital Presence.

The personal data processed is not transferred to third parties or otherwise transmitted without your express consent. However, we expressly reserve the right to pass this data on to other companies within the Linktime Group.
We will retain your information for no longer than necessary and it will remain confidential. However, we expressly reserve the right to transfer personal data to governmental institutions and authorities as well as to private persons with a right thereto based on statutory regulations, court orders or regulatory decisions, as well as to transfer personal data to governmental institutions for the purposes of taking legal action or prosecution should our legally protected rights be challenged.

Should you wish to contact us by e-mail, please note that e-mails will be in an unencrypted form and will therefore be susceptible to the security risks typically associated with such methods of communication.

If the deletion of any data is not permitted for statutory or contractual reasons or by commercial or tax law, in particular by statutory retention periods, the data will be blocked instead of deleted.
The data we collect and save is treated confidentially and, using appropriate technical and organizational precautions, protected from loss or manipulation as well as from unauthorized access by third parties.
In certain cases, information exchanged between your computer and/or device and us is encrypted during transmission. We do not accept liability for any unauthorized access or loss or personal data that is beyond our control.
Our Digital Presence may contain links to other digital solutions which are outside our control and are not covered by this Data Protection Policy. If you access other digital solutions using the links provided, the operators of these digital solutions may collect information from you which will be used by them in accordance with their data protection policy, which may differ from ours.
Changes to this Data Protection Policy may be required from time to time, for example due to the ongoing development of our Digital Presence or as a result of changes in legislation. Linktime therefore reserves the right to change the Data Protection Policy at any time, with effect from a future date. Accordingly, we recommend that you re-read this Data Protection Policy on a regular basis. This Data Protection Policy was last updated on: 19.03.2018
