The data protection declaration of Little Lingua is based on the terms used by the European legislator for the adoption of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Our data protection declaration should be legible and understandable for the general public, as well as our customers and business partners. To ensure this, we would like to first explain the terminology used.
Personal data means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (“data subject”). An identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.
Data subject is any identified or identifiable natural person, whose personal data is processed by the controller responsible for the processing.
Processing is any operation or set of operations which is performed on personal data or on sets of personal data, whether or not by automated means, such as collection, recording, organisation, structuring, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.
Controller or controller responsible for the processing
Controller or controller responsible for the processing is the natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which, alone or jointly with others, determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data; where the purposes and means of such processing are determined by Union or Member State law, the controller or the specific criteria for its nomination may be provided for by Union or Member State law.
Processor is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which processes personal data on behalf of the controller.
Third party is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or body other than the data subject, controller, processor and persons who, under the direct authority of the controller or processor, are authorised to process personal data.
Consent of the data subject is any freely given, specific, informed and unambiguous indication of the data subject’s wishes by which he or she, by a statement or by a clear affirmative action, signifies agreement to the processing of personal data relating to him or her.

3) Name and Address of Controller
Controller for the purposes of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), other data protection laws applicable in Member states of the European Union and other provisions related to data protection is:
Cookies dropped by us or third parties serve a variety of purposes, including to operate and personalize the website, and can provide its users with more user-friendly services. An example of this is the cookie of a shopping cart in our online shop. The online shop remembers the articles that a customer has placed in the virtual shopping cart via a cookie.
The data subject may, at any time, prevent the setting of cookies through our website by means of a corresponding setting of the Internet browser used, and may thus permanently deny the setting of cookies. Furthermore, already set cookies may be deleted at any time via an Internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in all popular Internet browsers. If the data subject deactivates the setting of cookies in the Internet browser used, not all functions of our website may be entirely usable.
5) Collection of general data and information
The website of Little Lingua collects a series of general data and information when a data subject calls up the website. This general data and information are stored in the server log files, and may include the following:
The browser types and versions used.
The operating system used by the accessing system.
The website from which an accessing system reaches our website.
The date and time of access to the Internet site.
An Internet protocol address (IP address)
The Internet service provider of the accessing system.
Any other similar data and information that may be used in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.
When using this general data and information, Little Lingua does not draw any conclusions about the data subject. Rather, this information is used for the following reasons:
To deliver the content of our website correctly
To optimize the content of our website as well as its advertisement
To ensure the long-term viability of our information technology systems and website technology
To provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for criminal prosecution in case of a cyber-attack.
Therefore, Little Lingua analyzes anonymously collected data and information statistically, with the aim of increasing the data protection and data security of our enterprise, and to ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data we process. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by a data subject.
6) Collection of personal data on our website
Little Lingua does not require you to provide personal information to visit our website; however, you may choose to provide us with personal information to help us serve your needs through an online contact form. We will use your information to respond to you regarding the reason you contacted us. We will not share your information with any third party outside of our organisation, other than as necessary to fulfil your request.
We request information from you if you register for an after-school club or a camp with us. To register through us, you must provide personal information i.e. email address, address, phone number, children’s names and their class in school. In the event we need to contact you regarding an issue with your registration we’ll use this information to contact you. We also provide this information to our Tutors, so that they can contact you in the event of an issue while your child is attending one of our programs. We also ask for any dietary and health information that may be relevant for safety reasons. In some cases we also provide the information to the school. This is to ensure that the appropriate children are transferred from the care of the school to the Little Lingua Tutor.
7) Subscription to our mailing list
When registering your child/children for our clubs/camps, users are given the opportunity to subscribe to our mailing list. We regularly inform our customers of after school classes, camps and other Little Lingua activities. We also send out a quarterly newsletter. These promotions will only be received by the data subject if the data subject has a valid e-mail address and the data subject explicitly gives consent to receive these promotions.
The subscription to our mailing list may be terminated by the data subject at any time. For the purpose of revocation of consent, a corresponding unsubscribe link is found at the bottom of each email. It is also possible to unsubscribe from the mailing list at any time by contacting the controller directly.
Upon registration for after school classes or camps on the Little Lingua website, the data subject’s personal data will automatically be stored on Google Drive. If registration has taken place via other means (e.g. phone, email), the processor will input the personal data into Google Drive. In the case of email correspondence, during which personal data has been communicated, this information will remain on Gmail’s server.
Personal information on the data subjects are also stored on a server located on site at the controller’s premises. The data controller shall, at any time, provide information upon request to each data subject as to what personal data are stored about the data subject, and where this information is being stored.
10) Payment Method: Data protection provisions about the use of Easypaymentsplus and Paypal as a payment processor.
Online or telephone payments made to Littlelingua are processed securely by Easypaymentsplus or Paypal systems and the information you provide is communicated in a strongly-encrypted format. Little Lingua does not directly collect, process or store financial information. Please see these companies’ privacy policies for more information.
The data controller shall process and store the personal data of the data subject only for the period necessary to achieve the purpose of storage, or as far as this is granted by the European legislator or other legislators in laws or regulations to which the controller is subject to.
If the storage purpose is not applicable, or if a storage period prescribed by the European legislator or another competent legislator expires, the personal data are routinely blocked or erased in accordance with legal requirements. In addition, the data controller shall correct or erase personal data at the request or indication of the data subject, insofar as there are no statutory storage obligations.
11) Data protection provisions about the application and use of Facebook
On this website, the controller has integrated components of the enterprise Facebook.
If the data subject is logged in at the same time on Facebook, Facebook detects with every call-up to our website by the data subject—and for the entire duration of their stay on our Internet site—which specific sub-site of our Internet page was visited by the data subject. This information is collected through the Facebook component and associated with the respective Facebook account of the data subject. If the data subject clicks on one of the Facebook buttons integrated into our website, e.g. the “Like” button, or if the data subject submits a comment, then Facebook matches this information with the personal Facebook user account of the data subject and stores the personal data.
Facebook always receives, through the Facebook component, information about a visit to our website by the data subject, whenever the data subject is logged in at the same time on Facebook during the time of the call-up to our website. This occurs regardless of whether the data subject clicks on the Facebook component or not. If such a transmission of information to Facebook is not desirable for the data subject, then he or she may prevent this by logging off from their Facebook account before a call-up to our website is made.
Art. 6(1) lit. a GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing operations for which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is party, as is the case, for example, when processing operations are necessary for the supply of goods or to provide any other service, the processing is based on Article 6(1) lit. b GDPR. The same applies to such processing operations which are necessary for carrying out pre-contractual measures, for example in the case of inquiries concerning our products or services. Where our company is subject to a legal obligation by which processing of personal data is required, such as for the fulfilment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6(1) lit. c GDPR. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or of another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor were injured in our company and his name, age, health insurance data or other vital information would have to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Then the processing would be based on Art. 6(1) lit. d GDPR. Finally, processing operations could be based on Article 6(1) lit. f GDPR. This legal basis is used for processing operations which are not covered by any of the abovementioned legal grounds, if processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by our company or by a third party, except where such interests are overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject which require protection of personal data. Such processing operations are particularly permissible because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. He considered that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a client of the controller (Recital 47 Sentence 2 GDPR).
