I. GDPR Compliance
It is our goal to secure and use only the most minimal data possible to fulfill the proposed request or obligation.
The processing of personal data, such as the name, address, e-mail address, or telephone number of a data subject shall always be in line with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), and in accordance with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to Appointed Time Press, LLC which resides in the United States of America. By means of this data protection declaration, Appointed Time Press, LLC would like to inform the general public of the nature, scope, and purpose of the personal data we collect, use, and process. Furthermore, data subjects are informed, by means of this data protection declaration, of the rights to which they are entitled.
As the controller, Appointed Time Press, LLC has implemented numerous technical and organizational measures to ensure the most complete protection of personal data processed through this website. However, Internet-based data transmissions may, in principle, have security gaps. Therefore, absolute protection may not be guaranteed. For this reason, every data subject is free to transfer personal data to us via alternative means, (e.g. by postal service).
This data protection declaration of Appointed Time Press, LLC 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.
In this data protection declaration, we use, inter alia, the following terms:
a) Personal Data
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.
b) Data Subject
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, organization, structuring, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination, or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.
d) Restriction of Processing
Restriction of processing is the marking of stored personal data with the aim of limiting their processing in the future.
Profiling means any form of automated processing of personal data consisting of the use of personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyze or predict aspects concerning that natural person’s performance at work, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behavior, location, or movements.
Pseudonymization is the processing of personal data in such a manner that the personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without the use of additional information, provided that such additional information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organizational measures to ensure that the personal data are not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.
g) 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.
Recipient is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or another body, to which the personal data are disclosed, whether a third party or not. However, public authorities which may receive personal data in the framework of a particular inquiry in accordance with Union or Member State law shall not be regarded as recipients; the processing of those data by those public authorities shall be in compliance with the applicable data protection rules according to the purposes of the processing.
j) Third party
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 authorized 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.
(2). Name and Address of the Controller and Data Protection Officer
The Controller and Data Protection Officer address are one and the same for Appointed Time Press, LLC. To contact us 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, we may be reached at the following:
Appointed Time Press, LLC
500 South Lynn Riggs Blvd, Ste. #371
Claremore, Oklahoma 74017
United States of America
Email: [email protected]
Any data subject may, at any time, contact our Data Protection Officer with all questions and suggestions concerning data protection.
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.
(4). Collection of General Data and Information
The website of Appointed Time Press, LLC collects a series of general data and information when a data subject or automated system calls up the website. This general data and information are stored in the server log files. Collected may be (1) the browser types and versions used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the website from which an accessing system reaches our website (so-called referrers), (4) the sub-websites, (5) the date and time of access to the Internet site, (6) an internet protocol address (IP address), (7) the internet service provider of the accessing system, and (8) any other similar data and information that may be used in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.
When using these general data and information, Appointed Time Press, LLC does not draw any conclusions about the data subject. Rather, this information is needed to (1) deliver the content of our website correctly, (2) optimize the content of our website as well as its advertisement, (3) ensure the long-term viability of our information technology systems and website technology, and (4) provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for criminal prosecution in case of a cyber-attack. Therefore, Appointed Time Press, LLC analyzes anonymously collected data and information statistically, with the aim of increasing the data protection and data security of our company, 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.
(5). Subscription to our Newsletters
The input mask used for this purpose determines what personal data are transmitted, as well as when the newsletter is ordered from the controller.
Appointed Time Press, LLC informs its customers and business partners regularly by means of a newsletter about our work. Our newsletter may only be received by the data subject if (1) the data subject has a valid e-mail address and (2) the data subject registers for the newsletter subscription. A confirmation e-mail will be sent to the e-mail address registered by a data subject for the first time for newsletter transmittal, for legal reasons, in the double opt-in procedure. This confirmation e-mail is used to prove whether the owner of the e-mail address as the data subject is authorized to receive the newsletter.
During the registration for the newsletter, we also store the IP address of the computer system assigned by the internet service provider (ISP) and used by the data subject at the time of the registration, as well as the date and time of the registration. The collection of this data is necessary in order to understand the (possible) misuse of the e-mail address of a data subject at a later date, and it therefore serves the aim of the legal protection of the controller.
The personal data collected as part of a registration for the newsletter will only be used to send our newsletter. In addition, subscribers to the newsletter may be informed by e-mail, as long as this is necessary for the operation of the newsletter service or a registration in question, as this could be the case in the event of modifications to the newsletter offer, or in the event of a change in technical circumstances. There will be no transfer of personal data collected by the newsletter service to third parties. The subscription to our newsletter may be terminated by the data subject at any time. The consent to the storage of personal data, which the data subject has given for transmitting of the newsletter, may be revoked at any time. For the purpose of revocation of consent, a corresponding link is found in each newsletter. It is also possible to unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time directly on the website of the controller, or to communicate this to the controller in a different way.
The newsletter of Appointed Time Press, LLC contains so-called tracking pixels. A tracking pixel is a miniature graphic embedded in such e-mails, which are sent in HTML format to enable log file recording and analysis. This allows a statistical analysis of the success or failure of online marketing campaigns. Based on the embedded tracking pixel, Appointed Time Press, LLC may see if and when an e-mail was opened by a data subject, and which links in the e-mail were called up by data subjects.
Such personal data collected in the tracking pixels contained in the newsletters are stored and analyzed by the controller in order to optimize the transmitting of the newsletter, as well as to adapt the content of future newsletters even better to the interests of the data subject. This personal data will not be passed on to third parties. Data subjects are at any time entitled to revoke the respective separate declaration of consent issued by means of the double-opt-in procedure. After a revocation, this personal data will be deleted by the controller. Appointed Time Press, LLC automatically regards a withdrawal from the receipt of the newsletter as a revocation.
(7). Contact possibility via the Website
The website of Appointed Time Press, LLC contains information that enables a quick electronic contact to our company, as well as direct communication with us, which also includes a general address of the so-called electronic mail (e-mail address). If a data subject contacts the controller by e-mail or via a contact form, the personal data transmitted by the data subject are automatically stored. Such personal data transmitted on a voluntary basis by a data subject to the data controller are stored for the purpose of processing or contacting the data subject.
The functionality of all contact forms on the website are enabled by Contact Form 7, which is a plugin for WordPress. When a contact form is filled out, the information entered by the data subject is automatically stored and processed by our server. Once our server processes that request, we receive an email. All emails are processed via Google’s G-Suite platform with the assistance of their Captcha service.
We retain the data subject’s information for the duration of time required to fulfill the proposed request or inquiry, or for the duration of the contract between the data subject and Appointed Time Press, LLC. In instances of unlawful behavior, or where legal measures are necessitated, information may be stored indefinitely. All exchanged information may be stored in secured company files via our Dropbox or Google company accounts.
No information shared by the data subject is used for marketing purposes.
(8). Contact with our company outside the Website
A data subject may choose to contact us outside of the website via postal mail at the following address:
Appointed Time Press, LLC, 500 S. Lynn Riggs Blvd., Ste #371, Claremore, OK 74017, U.S.A.
We use UPS, FedEx, and USPS to correspond with our customers and to conduct official business. These entities will require a data subject’s information to fulfill a request. That information usually includes the following: name, mailing address, phone number, and possibly an email for tracking purposes.
The shipping and receipt of your packages and correspondence is very important to us. We want to make sure this is a smooth and timely process. We will always provide notification via email prior to shipment with tracking information. For business correspondence and transactions we may also require your signature upon receipt.
We kindly ask that you contact us via the form provided prior to any shipment for accurate and timely processing. Please do not send blind packages, as they will not be opened. (Blind packages are those without a return address, proper tracking, or prior correspondence).
We have no obligation to return to the sender. If returning to the sender is necessary, we will attempt contact via email.
We do not accept solicitations. All solicitations will be discarded and/or destroyed.
(9). Comments function in the Blog on the Website
Appointed Time Press, LLC offers users the possibility to leave individual comments on individual blog contributions on a blog, which is on the website of the controller. A blog is a web-based, publicly-accessible portal, through which one or more people called bloggers or web-bloggers may post articles or write down thoughts in so-called blogposts. Blogposts may usually be commented by third parties.
If a data subject leaves a comment on the blog published on this website, the comments made by the data subject are also stored and published, as well as information on the date of the commentary and on the user’s (pseudonym) chosen by the data subject. In addition, the IP address assigned by the Internet service provider (ISP) to the data subject is also logged. This storage of the IP address takes place for security reasons, and in case the data subject violates the rights of third parties, or posts illegal content through a given comment. The storage of these personal data is, therefore, in the own interest of the data controller, so that he can exculpate in the event of an infringement. This collected personal data will not be passed to third parties, unless such a transfer is required by law or serves the aim of the defense of the data controller.
When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
For more information on our comments policy, please reference our Comment Policy.
(10). Subscription to Comments in the Blog on the Website
The comments made in the blog of Appointed Time Press, LLC may be subscribed to by third parties. In particular, there is the possibility that a commenter subscribes to the comments following his comments on a particular blog post.
If a data subject decides to subscribe to the option, the controller will send an automatic confirmation e-mail to check the double opt-in procedure as to whether the owner of the specified e-mail address decided in favor of this option. The option to subscribe to comments may be terminated at any time.
(11). Routine Erasure and Blocking of Personal Data
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.
(12.) Lawful Blocking and the Rights of Appointed Time Press, LLC
Cybersecurity crimes and other unlawful social interactions and behaviors warrant blocking, and may also warrant reporting a data subject to the authorities at the discretion of Appointed Time Press, LLC.
Appointed Time Press, LLC maintains the sovereign, distinct, and lawful right to block and/or report to the authorities any data subject who has acted unlawfully toward this company or another data subject. This includes breaches of cybersecurity laws and other social interactions that are threatening, seeking to harm, propose risk, are illegal, or are otherwise deemed harmful by this company. This includes hacks, brute force attacks, phishing, unlawful internet behaviors, malicious intent, malevolent public or private comments, and other social interactions that propose risk or harm to us, the public, or any other individual.
Appointed Time Press, LLC has judicially blocked specific countries that propose cybersecurity risks and/or threats, propose any known threats to the free world, or are otherwise deemed suspect or unsafe for internet interactions. These blocks include all failed states with escalating crime. All data breaches from these areas of the world will be permanently blocked and/or reported to the authorities when deemed necessary. Suspicious behaviors from these areas, or from any data subject from these areas, are logged and tracked via IP address, along with any data subject information pertinent to the proposed breach or threat in accordance with the laws of the United States of America.
Appointed Time Press, LLC, holds the right to preserve its own entity in the interest of its own security as well as that of its users and visitors. Being able to maintain that security warrants a constant study and awareness of cybersecurity crimes and trends, as well as other internet social behaviors in collaboration with our security teams. In an attempt to provide a viable service and platform, Appointed Time Press, LLC studies cybersecurity trends, risks, crimes, and threats. Known active cyber attacks from a specific region or country will warrant a country block which may be deemed permanent. Therefore, country blocking is always subject to the sole discretion of Appointed Time Press, LLC in an attempt to minimize risk and harm.
Blocked countries are denied access to this website, being served a ‘country block’ notice upon attempting internet access. Any and all attempts to circumvent that block, whether criminal or not, will warrant a permanent block to any individual or entity as a potential data subject. All such activities are permanently logged. These may also warrant a report to the proper authorities of the United States of America. All such blocks are hereby permanent.
(13). Rights of the Data Subject
a) Right of Confirmation

(14). Data Protection for Applications and the Application Procedures
Appointed Time Press, LLC makes a distinction between applicants from the United States of America and the EU for legal purposes. These include both volunteer and employment applications. Although the application process is identical, the duration of retention of the applicant’s information is where the distinction lies. In the event of a refusal, all applications will be retained for six months for US citizens or residents. EU applications will be retained for a total of two months if a refusal was served to the applicant.
Appointed Time Press, LLC shall collect and process the personal data of applicants for the purpose of the processing of the application procedure. The processing may also be carried out electronically. This is the case, in particular, if an applicant submits corresponding application documents by e-mail or by means of a web form on the website to the controller. If the data controller concludes an employment contract with an applicant, the submitted data will be stored for the purpose of processing the employment relationship in compliance with legal requirements. If no employment contract is concluded with the applicant by the controller, the application documents for an EU citizen shall be automatically erased two months after notification of the refusal decision, provided that no other legitimate interests of the controller are opposed to the erasure. Other legitimate interest in this relation is, e.g. a burden of proof in a procedure under the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG).
(15). Data protection provisions about the application and use of Google Site Kit (a.k.a. Google Analytics)
On this website, the controller has integrated the component of Google Site Kit. Google Site Kit includes Google’s web analytics service. Web analytics is the collection, gathering, and analysis of data about the behavior of visitors to websites. A web analysis service collects, inter alia, data about the website from which a person has come (the so-called referrer), which sub-pages were visited, or how often and for what duration a sub-page was viewed. Web analytics are mainly used for the optimization of a website and in order to carry out a cost-benefit analysis of Internet advertising.
The operator of the Google Site Kit component is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, United States.
The purpose of the Google Site Kit component is to analyze the traffic on our website. Google uses the collected data and information, inter alia, to evaluate the use of our website and to provide online reports, which show the activities on our websites, and to provide other services concerning the use of our Internet site for us.
Google Site Kit places a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. The definition of cookies is explained above. With the setting of the cookie, Google is enabled to analyze the use of our website. With each call-up to one of the individual pages of this Internet site, which is operated by the controller and into which a Google Site Kit component was integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject will automatically submit data through the Google Site Kit component for the purpose of online advertising and the settlement of commissions to Google. During the course of this technical procedure, the enterprise Google gains knowledge of personal information, such as the IP address of the data subject, which serves Google, inter alia, to understand the origin of visitors and clicks, and subsequently create commission settlements.
The cookie is used to store personal information, such as the access time, the location from which the access was made, and the frequency of visits of our website by the data subject. With each visit to our Internet site, such personal data, including the IP address of the Internet access used by the data subject, will be transmitted to Google in the United States of America. These personal data are stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may pass these personal data collected through the technical procedure to third parties.
The data subject may, as stated above, prevent the setting of cookies through our website at any time by means of a corresponding adjustment of the web browser used and thus permanently deny the setting of cookies. Such an adjustment to the Internet browser used would also prevent Google Analytics from setting a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. In addition, cookies already in use by Google Analytics may be deleted at any time via a web browser or other software programs.
Further information and the applicable data protection provisions of Google may be retrieved under https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/ and under http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/us.html. Google Analytics is further explained under the following Link https://www.google.com/analytics/.
(16). Data protection provisions about the application and use of Jetpack for WordPress
On this website, the controller has integrated Jetpack. Jetpack is a WordPress plug-in, which provides additional features to the operator of a website based on WordPress. Jetpack allows the Internet site operator, inter alia, an overview of the visitors of the site. By displaying related posts and publications, or the ability to share content on the page, it is also possible to increase visitor numbers. In addition, security features are integrated into Jetpack, so a Jetpack-using site is better protected against brute-force attacks. Jetpack also optimizes and accelerates the loading of images on the website.
The operating company of Jetpack Plug-Ins for WordPress is the Automattic Inc., 132 Hawthorne Street, San Francisco, CA 94107, UNITED STATES. The operating enterprise uses the tracking technology created by Quantcast Inc., 201 Third Street, San Francisco, CA 94103, UNITED STATES.
Jetpack sets a cookie on the information technology system used by the data subject. The definition of cookies is explained above. With each call-up to one of the individual pages of this Internet site, which is operated by the controller and on which a Jetpack component was integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically prompted to submit data through the Jetpack component for analysis purposes to Automattic. During the course of this technical procedure Automattic receives data that is used to create an overview of website visits. The data obtained in this way serves the analysis of the behavior of the data subject, which has access to the Internet page of the controller and is analyzed with the aim to optimize the website. The data collected through the Jetpack component is not used to identify the data subject without a prior obtaining of a separate express consent of the data subject. The data comes also to the notice of Quantcast. Quantcast uses the data for the same purposes as Automattic.
The data subject can, as stated above, prevent the setting of cookies through our website at any time by means of a corresponding adjustment of the web browser used and thus permanently deny the setting of cookies. Such an adjustment to the Internet browser used would also prevent Automattic/Quantcast from setting a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. In addition, cookies already in use by Automattic/Quantcast may be deleted at any time via a web browser or other software programs.
In addition, the data subject has the possibility of objecting to a collection of data relating to a use of this Internet site that are generated by the Jetpack cookie as well as the processing of these data by Automattic/Quantcast and the chance to preclude any such.

(21). Payment Method: Data protection provisions about the use of Stripe as a payment processor
Appointed Time Press, LLC has chosen Stripe to handle all invoicing and financial transactions. Stripe is the new standard as an online payment service provider which exceeds industry standards. With invoicing, payments are processed via a secured Stripe portal. If the data subject already has an established Stripe account, that account may be used. Stripe is able to process payment via credit card, debit card, or bank account transmittals. Stripe is raising the bar as a leading provider in secure online payments.
Stripe is a US based company in San Francisco, CA and is located at 3180 18th Street, Ste #100, San Francisco, CA 94110-2042, U.S.A.
Appointed Time Press, LLC has chosen not to handle any financial information via our server or website portals. All payments and invoices will be redirected to Stripe’s portal. When a data subject selects Stripe’s payment option, the data subject agrees to the transfer of personal data required for payment processing.
The personal data transmitted to Stripe may include: first name, last name, address, email address, IP address, telephone number, mobile phone number, or other financial data necessary for payment processing. The processing of the purchase contract also requires such personal data, which are in connection with the respective order.
The transmission of the data is aimed at payment processing and fraud prevention. The controller will transfer personal data to Stripe, in particular, if a legitimate interest in the transmission is given. The personal data exchanged between Stripe and the controller for the processing of the data will be transmitted by Stripe to economic credit agencies. This transmission is intended for identity and creditworthiness checks.
Stripe will, if necessary, pass on personal data to affiliates and service providers or subcontractors to the extent that this is necessary to fulfill contractual obligations or for data to be processed in the order.
The data subject has the possibility to revoke consent for the handling of personal data at any time from Stripe. A revocation shall not have any effect on personal data which must be processed, used or transmitted in accordance with (contractual) payment processing.
The applicable data protection provisions of Stripe may be retrieved at the following: https://stripe.com/privacy
(22). Legal basis for the processing
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. Is our company subject to a legal obligation by which processing of personal data is required, such as for the fulfillment 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 above mentioned 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).
(23). The legitimate interests pursued by the controller or by a third party
Where the processing of personal data is based on Article 6(1) lit. f GDPR our legitimate interest is to carry out our business in favor of the well-being of all our employees and the shareholders.
(24). Period for which the personal data will be stored
The criteria used to determine the period of storage of personal data is determined by the time required to fulfill the respective request or inquiry of the data subject. After expiration of that period, the corresponding data is routinely deleted, as long as it is no longer necessary for the fulfillment of the request, inquiry, or contract. Exceptions to this rule are when data may be kept indefinitely for administrative, security, or legal purposes as necessary. Any data subject’s information related to cybercrime or other criminal behaviors will be permanent unless contraindicated.
(25). Provision of personal data as statutory or contractual requirement; Requirement necessary to enter into a contract; Obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data; possible consequences of failure to provide such data.
We clarify that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or can also result from contractual provisions (e.g. information on the contractual partner). Sometimes it may be necessary to conclude a contract that the data subject provides us with personal data, which must subsequently be processed by us. The data subject is, for example, obliged to provide us with personal data when our company signs a contract with him or her. The non-provision of the personal data would have the consequence that the contract with the data subject could not be concluded. Before personal data is provided by the data subject, the data subject must contact Appointed Time Press, LLC. We will clarify to the data subject whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or contract or is necessary for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and the consequences of non-provision of the personal data.
(26). Existence of automated decision-making
As a responsible company, we do not use automatic decision-making or profiling.
