2.2 Sign-up and login
To use our service, you first need to set up a user account for the Remagine-Platform. This requires you to provide a business name, your company’s website and an email address. We also ask you to provide additional information about your company (e.g. industry, registered office, monthly online revenue and the monthly budget for ads as well as the return on advertising spend. These categories are also summarized below as “company data”). We also collect your first and last name, a phone number and your title / role with your company.

The data collected when you use the sign-up form will be stored for the duration of our business relationship.
In order to apply for Remagine funding you need to provide us with company data and connect your aggregated sales, marketing, and bank account data with the Remagine-Platform.

We will review your application based on your company data and the aggregated data mentioned above and send you several funding offers, from which you can pick the one that matches best your sales and marketing needs. All data regarding your application is stored with your Remagine account. Only aggregated or anonymized data is processed in the application and review process. The legal basis for this data processing is Art. 6(1) (b) GDPR.

The legal basis for this data processing is Art. 6(1) (b) GDPR.

You can unsubscribe from the Remagine newsletter at any time. An unsubscribe link can be found in every newsletter.

2.10 Cookies, marketing and analytics tools
When you visit and use our website and the Remagine-Platfrom, we may store a variety of cookies. Cookies are small text files stored in your web browser’s memory which contain information that can be used to recognize you when you visit web servers later on. However, this does not mean that we are immediately aware of your identity. Cookies cannot execute any programs or transfer viruses to your computer.
The primary purpose of our own cookies is rather to make using our service as time-saving and user-friendly as possible.
- for load balancing;
- to store language settings;
- to store form data; and
- to note that information placed on our website has been displayed to you, so that it will not be displayed again the next time you visit the website.
For example, we use so-called session cookies to recognize that you have already visited individual pages on our website. These cookies expire at the latest one month after you stop interacting with our website. In addition, to improve usability, we also use temporary cookies that are stored on your device for a specified period of time. If you visit our site or platform again to take advantage of our services, it will automatically recognize that you have already been with us and what inputs and settings you have made, so you do not have to re-enter them.
We do this to be able to make your use of our website more convenient and personalized. The processing of the respective cookies is based on our aforementioned legitimate interests, meaning the legal basis is Art. 6(1) (f) GDPR.
You can prevent the storage of cookies by adjusting your browser settings to disable the acceptance of cookies via this website. If you do not accept cookies, however, this may in some cases lead to considerable functional restrictions on our website.

3. Links to other websites and online content
Our website may contain links to websites and online content of other providers not affiliated with us. If you activate these links, we naturally no longer have any influence on which data is collected by the respective providers and which data they record. For more detailed information on data collection and use, please refer to the privacy policies of the respective providers. Since the collection and processing of data by third parties is beyond our control, we cannot assume any responsibility for this.
4. Our social media profiles
We are represented in various social networks.
- Instagram (Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, D2 Dublin, Ireland), data protection notices
On our website we link to our company profiles on the respective social networks. Please note, that when you activate a link to a social network, data is transferred to servers of the respective provider. If you are logged in to the respective social network at that moment with your username and password, the information that you are visiting our website will be transferred to the social network and the respective provider may assign this information to your user account.
Basically, we have no way of influencing the data processing regarding the social networks. But we do receive statistics about usage and visits of our company profiles on the social networks (e.g., information about the number of views, interactions such as likes, comments and retweets, and aggregated demographic and other information or statistics). For this purpose, we submit certain parameters regarding our company and the services and content we offer on our company profile to the social network. This information is used by the providers to create more detailed statistics. In addition, the providers may use data they collect when you visit the social network for their own purposes beyond our control. For more detailed information, please refer to the providers’ privacy notice linked above.
If you also intend to assert rights against the social network provider, the easiest way to do so is to directly contact the respective provider. The provider knows the details on the technical operation of the platform and the associated data processing as well as the concrete purposes of data processing and can put appropriate measures into practice to comply with your inquiry. The contact details can be found in the privacy notice linked above. We gladly support you in asserting your rights to the extent of our competence.
The legal basis for linking and operating our company social media profiles is Art. 6(1) (f) GDPR based on our legitimate interest in our corporate communications in the respective social networks.
5. Disclosure of data
In principle, we will only pass on the data we collect if:
- you have given your explicit consent pursuant to Art. 6(1) (a) GDPR;
- disclosure is necessary pursuant to Art. 6(1) (f) GDPR in order to establish, exercise or defend legal claims and there is no reason to assume that you have an overriding legitimate interest in your data not being disclosed;
- we are legally obliged to do so under Art. 6(1) (c) GDPR; or
- this is permitted by law and is required under Art. 6(1) (b) GDPR for the processing of contractual relationships with you or for taking steps at your request prior to entering into a contract.
In addition, data may be disclosed in connection with official requests, court orders and legal proceedings if this is necessary to pursue or enforce rights.
The security of your personal information is important to us. We take a number of organizational, technical and physical measures designed to protect the personal information we collect, both during transmission and once we receive it. Our security is subject to constant improvement and our privacy policies are constantly being revised.
7. Personal data retention
We store personal data only for as long as is necessary to fulfil contractual or statutory duties for which the data were collected. We then erase or anonymize the data immediately, unless we still need it until expiry of the statutory period of limitation for purposes of evidence in civil claims or due to statutory duties of storage. For purposes of evidence, we must still store data for three years from the end of the year in which business relations with you end or an Remagine account is deleted. We are also required to store some of your data for accounting purposes. We have an obligation to do so under statutory duties of documentation which may arise under the German Commercial Code (HGB), the German Tax Code (AO) or the German Anti-Money Laundering Act (GwG). The retention periods are up to 10 years.
