1. An overview of data protection

General information

The fol­low­ing infor­ma­tion will pro­vide you with an easy to nav­i­gate overview of what will hap­pen with your per­son­al data when you vis­it this web­site. The term „per­son­al data“ com­pris­es all data that can be used to per­son­al­ly iden­ti­fy you. For detailed infor­ma­tion about the sub­ject mat­ter of data pro­tec­tion, please con­sult our Data Pro­tec­tion Dec­la­ra­tion, which we have includ­ed beneath this copy.

Data recording on this website

Who is the respon­si­ble par­ty for the record­ing of data on this web­site (i.e. the „con­troller“)?

The data on this web­site is processed by the oper­a­tor of the web­site, whose con­tact infor­ma­tion is avail­able under sec­tion „Infor­ma­tion Required by Law“ on this web­site.

How do we record your data?

We col­lect your data as a result of your shar­ing of your data with us. This may, for instance be infor­ma­tion you enter into our con­tact form.

Our IT sys­tems auto­mat­i­cal­ly record oth­er data when you vis­it our web­site. This data com­pris­es pri­mar­i­ly tech­ni­cal infor­ma­tion (e.g. web brows­er, oper­at­ing sys­tem or time the site was accessed). This infor­ma­tion is record­ed auto­mat­i­cal­ly when you access this web­site.

What are the pur­pos­es we use your data for?

A por­tion of the infor­ma­tion is gen­er­at­ed to guar­an­tee the error free pro­vi­sion of the web­site. Oth­er data may be used to analyse your user pat­terns.

What rights do you have as far as your infor­ma­tion is con­cerned?

You have the right to receive infor­ma­tion about the source, recip­i­ents and pur­pos­es of your archived per­son­al data at any time with­out hav­ing to pay a fee for such dis­clo­sures. You also have the right to demand that your data are rec­ti­fied or erad­i­cat­ed. Please do not hes­i­tate to con­tact us at any time under the address dis­closed in sec­tion „Infor­ma­tion Required by Law“ on this web­site if you have ques­tions about this or any oth­er data pro­tec­tion relat­ed issues. You also have the right to log a com­plaint with the com­pe­tent super­vis­ing agency.

More­over, under cer­tain cir­cum­stances, you have the right to demand the restric­tion of the pro­cess­ing of your per­son­al data. For details, please con­sult the Data Pro­tec­tion Dec­la­ra­tion under sec­tion „Right to Restric­tion of Data Pro­cess­ing.“

Analysis tools and tools provided by third parties

There is a pos­si­bil­i­ty that your brows­ing pat­terns will be sta­tis­ti­cal­ly analysed when your vis­it this web­site. Such analy­ses are per­formed pri­mar­i­ly with cook­ies and with what we refer to as analy­sis pro­grammes. As a rule, the analy­ses of your brows­ing pat­terns are con­duct­ed anony­mous­ly; i.e. the brows­ing pat­terns can­not be traced back to you.

You have the option to object to such analy­ses or you can pre­vent their per­for­mance by not using cer­tain tools. For detailed infor­ma­tion about the tools and about your options to object, please con­sult our Data Pro­tec­tion Dec­la­ra­tion below.

2. Hosting

External Hosting

This web­site is host­ed by an exter­nal ser­vice provider (host). Per­son­al data col­lect­ed on this web­site are stored on the servers of the host. These may include, but are not lim­it­ed to, IP address­es, con­tact requests, meta­da­ta and com­mu­ni­ca­tions, con­tract infor­ma­tion, con­tact infor­ma­tion, names, web page access, and oth­er data gen­er­at­ed through a web site.

The host is used for the pur­pose of ful­fill­ing the con­tract with our poten­tial and exist­ing cus­tomers (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO) and in the inter­est of secure, fast and effi­cient pro­vi­sion of our online ser­vices by a pro­fes­sion­al provider (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO).

Our host will only process your data to the extent nec­es­sary to ful­fil its per­for­mance oblig­a­tions and to fol­low our instruc­tions with respect to such data.

Exe­cu­tion of a con­tract data pro­cess­ing agree­ment

In order to guar­an­tee pro­cess­ing in com­pli­ance with data pro­tec­tion reg­u­la­tions, we have con­clud­ed an order pro­cess­ing con­tract with our host.

3. General information and mandatory information

Data protection

The oper­a­tors of this web­site and its pages take the pro­tec­tion of your per­son­al data very seri­ous­ly. Hence, we han­dle your per­son­al data as con­fi­den­tial infor­ma­tion and in com­pli­ance with the statu­to­ry data pro­tec­tion reg­u­la­tions and this Data Pro­tec­tion Dec­la­ra­tion.

When­ev­er you use this web­site, a vari­ety of per­son­al infor­ma­tion will be col­lect­ed. Per­son­al data com­pris­es data that can be used to per­son­al­ly iden­ti­fy you. This Data Pro­tec­tion Dec­la­ra­tion explains which data we col­lect as well as the pur­pos­es we use this data for. It also explains how, and for which pur­pose the infor­ma­tion is col­lect­ed.

We here­with advise you that the trans­mis­sion of data via the Inter­net (i.e. through e‑mail com­mu­ni­ca­tions) may be prone to secu­ri­ty gaps. It is not pos­si­ble to com­plete­ly pro­tect data against third par­ty access.

Information about the responsible party (referred to as the „controller“ in the GDPR)

The data pro­cess­ing con­troller on this web­site is:

[Voller Namen bzw. die voll­ständi­ge Unternehmens­beze­ich­nung des Web­site-Betreibers sowie die voll­ständi­ge Anschrift]

Phone: [Tele­fon­num­mer der ver­ant­wortlichen Stelle]
E‑mail: [E‑Mail-Adresse der ver­ant­wortlichen Stelle]

The con­troller is the nat­ur­al per­son or legal enti­ty that sin­gle-hand­ed­ly or joint­ly with oth­ers makes deci­sions as to the pur­pos­es of and resources for the pro­cess­ing of per­son­al data (e.g. names, e‑mail address­es, etc.).

Designation of a data protection officer as mandated by law

We have appoint­ed a data pro­tec­tion offi­cer for our com­pa­ny.

[Voller Namen bzw. die voll­ständi­ge Unternehmens­beze­ich­nung des Daten­schutzbeauf­tragten sowie die voll­ständi­ge Anschrift]

Phone: [Tele­fon­num­mer des Daten­schutzbeauf­tragten]
E‑mail: [E‑Mail-Adresse des Daten­schutzbeauf­tragten]

Revocation of your consent to the processing of data

A wide range of data pro­cess­ing trans­ac­tions are pos­si­ble only sub­ject to your express con­sent. You can also revoke at any time any con­sent you have already giv­en us. To do so, all you are required to do is sent us an infor­mal noti­fi­ca­tion via e‑mail. This shall be with­out prej­u­dice to the law­ful­ness of any data col­lec­tion that occurred pri­or to your revo­ca­tion.

Right to object to the collection of data in special cases; right to object to direct advertising (Art. 21 GDPR)

IN THE EVENT THAT DATA ARE PROCESSED ON THE BASIS OF ART. 6 SECT. 1 LIT. E OR F GDPR, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO AT ANY TIME OBJECT TO THE PROCESSING OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA BASED ON GROUNDS ARISING FROM YOUR UNIQUE SITUATION. THIS ALSO APPLIES TO ANY PROFILING BASED ON THESE PROVISIONS. TO DETERMINE THE LEGAL BASIS, ON WHICH ANY PROCESSING OF DATA IS BASED, PLEASE CONSULT THIS DATA PROTECTION DECLARATION. IF YOU LOG AN OBJECTION, WE WILL NO LONGER PROCESS YOUR AFFECTED PERSONAL DATA, UNLESS WE ARE IN A POSITION TO PRESENT COMPELLING PROTECTION WORTHY GROUNDS FOR THE PROCESSING OF YOUR DATA, THAT OUTWEIGH YOUR INTERESTS, RIGHTS AND FREEDOMS OR IF THE PURPOSE OF THE PROCESSING IS THE CLAIMING, EXERCISING OR DEFENCE OF LEGAL ENTITLEMENTS (OBJECTION PURSUANT TO ART. 21 SECT. 1 GDPR).

IF YOUR PERSONAL DATA IS BEING PROCESSED IN ORDER TO ENGAGE IN DIRECT ADVERTISING, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO AT ANY TIME OBJECT TO THE PROCESSING OF YOUR AFFECTED PERSONAL DATA FOR THE PURPOSES OF SUCH ADVERTISING. THIS ALSO APPLIES TO PROFILING TO THE EXTENT THAT IT IS AFFILIATED WITH SUCH DIRECT ADVERTISING. IF YOU OBJECT, YOUR PERSONAL DATA WILL SUBSEQUENTLY NO LONGER BE USED FOR DIRECT ADVERTISING PURPOSES (OBJECTION PURSUANT TO ART. 21 SECT. 2 GDPR).

Right to log a complaint with the competent supervisory agency

In the event of vio­la­tions of the GDPR, data sub­jects are enti­tled to log a com­plaint with a super­vi­so­ry agency, in par­tic­u­lar in the mem­ber state where they usu­al­ly main­tain their domi­cile, place of work or at the place where the alleged vio­la­tion occurred. The right to log a com­plaint is in effect regard­less of any oth­er admin­is­tra­tive or court pro­ceed­ings avail­able as legal recours­es.

Right to data portability

You have the right to demand that we hand over any data we auto­mat­i­cal­ly process on the basis of your con­sent or in order to ful­fil a con­tract be hand­ed over to you or a third par­ty in a com­mon­ly used, machine read­able for­mat. If you should demand the direct trans­fer of the data to anoth­er con­troller, this will be done only if it is tech­ni­cal­ly fea­si­ble.

SSL and/or TLS encryption

For secu­ri­ty rea­sons and to pro­tect the trans­mis­sion of con­fi­den­tial con­tent, such as pur­chase orders or inquiries you sub­mit to us as the web­site oper­a­tor, this web­site uses either an SSL or a TLS encryp­tion pro­gramme. You can recog­nise an encrypt­ed con­nec­tion by check­ing whether the address line of the brows­er switch­es from „http://“ to „https://“ and also by the appear­ance of the lock icon in the brows­er line.

If the SSL or TLS encryp­tion is acti­vat­ed, data you trans­mit to us can­not be read by third par­ties.

Encrypted payment transactions on this website

If you are under an oblig­a­tion to share your pay­ment infor­ma­tion (e.g. account num­ber if you give us the author­i­ty to deb­it your bank account) with us after you have entered into a fee-based con­tract with us, this infor­ma­tion is required to process pay­ments.

Pay­ment trans­ac­tions using com­mon modes of pay­ing (Visa/MasterCard, deb­it to your bank account) are processed exclu­sive­ly via encrypt­ed SSL or TLS con­nec­tions. You can recog­nise an encrypt­ed con­nec­tion by check­ing whether the address line of the brows­er switch­es from „http://“ to „https://“ and also by the appear­ance of the lock icon in the brows­er line.

If the com­mu­ni­ca­tion with us is encrypt­ed, third par­ties will not be able to read the pay­ment infor­ma­tion you share with us.

Information about, rectification and eradication of data

With­in the scope of the applic­a­ble statu­to­ry pro­vi­sions, you have the right to at any time demand infor­ma­tion about your archived per­son­al data, their source and recip­i­ents as well as the pur­pose of the pro­cess­ing of your data. You may also have a right to have your data rec­ti­fied or erad­i­cat­ed. If you have ques­tions about this sub­ject mat­ter or any oth­er ques­tions about per­son­al data, please do not hes­i­tate to con­tact us at any time at the address pro­vid­ed in sec­tion „Infor­ma­tion Required by Law.“

Right to demand processing restrictions

You have the right to demand the impo­si­tion of restric­tions as far as the pro­cess­ing of your per­son­al data is con­cerned. To do so, you may con­tact us at any time at the address pro­vid­ed in sec­tion „Infor­ma­tion Required by Law.“ The right to demand restric­tion of pro­cess­ing applies in the fol­low­ing cas­es:

  • In the event that you should dis­pute the cor­rect­ness of your data archived by us, we will usu­al­ly need some time to ver­i­fy this claim. Dur­ing the time that this inves­ti­ga­tion is ongo­ing, you have the right to demand that we restrict the pro­cess­ing of your per­son­al data.
  • If the pro­cess­ing of your per­son­al data was/is con­duct­ed in an unlaw­ful man­ner, you have the option to demand the restric­tion of the pro­cess­ing of your data in lieu of demand­ing the erad­i­ca­tion of this data.
  • If we do not need your per­son­al data any longer and you need it to exer­cise, defend or claim legal enti­tle­ments, you have the right to demand the restric­tion of the pro­cess­ing of your per­son­al data instead of its erad­i­ca­tion.
  • If you have raised an objec­tion pur­suant to Art. 21 Sect. 1 GDPR, your rights and our rights will have to be weighed against each oth­er. As long as it has not been deter­mined whose inter­ests pre­vail, you have the right to demand a restric­tion of the pro­cess­ing of your per­son­al data.

If you have restrict­ed the pro­cess­ing of your per­son­al data, these data – with the excep­tion of their archiv­ing – may be processed only sub­ject to your con­sent or to claim, exer­cise or defend legal enti­tle­ments or to pro­tect the rights of oth­er nat­ur­al per­sons or legal enti­ties or for impor­tant pub­lic inter­est rea­sons cit­ed by the Euro­pean Union or a mem­ber state of the EU.

Rejection of unsolicited e‑mails

We here­with object to the use of con­tact infor­ma­tion pub­lished in con­junc­tion with the manda­to­ry infor­ma­tion to be pro­vid­ed in sec­tion „Infor­ma­tion Required by Law“ to send us pro­mo­tion­al and infor­ma­tion mate­r­i­al that we have not express­ly request­ed. The oper­a­tors of this web­site and its pages reserve the express right to take legal action in the event of the unso­licit­ed send­ing of pro­mo­tion­al infor­ma­tion, for instance via SPAM mes­sages.

4. Recording of data on this website

Cookies

In some instances, our web­site and its pages use so-called cook­ies. Cook­ies do not cause any dam­age to your com­put­er and do not con­tain virus­es. The pur­pose of cook­ies is to make our web­site more user friend­ly, effec­tive and more secure. Cook­ies are small text files that are placed on your com­put­er and stored by your brows­er.

Most of the cook­ies we use are so-called „ses­sion cook­ies.“ They are auto­mat­i­cal­ly delet­ed after your leave our site. Oth­er cook­ies will remain archived on your device until you delete them. These cook­ies enable us to recog­nise your brows­er the next time you vis­it our web­site.

You can adjust the set­tings of your brows­er to make sure that you are noti­fied every time cook­ies are placed and to enable you to accept cook­ies only in spe­cif­ic cas­es or to exclude the accep­tance of cook­ies for spe­cif­ic sit­u­a­tions or in gen­er­al and to acti­vate the auto­mat­ic dele­tion of cook­ies when you close your brows­er. If you deac­ti­vate cook­ies, the func­tions of this web­site may be lim­it­ed.

Cook­ies that are required for the per­for­mance of the elec­tron­ic com­mu­ni­ca­tions trans­ac­tion or to pro­vide cer­tain func­tions you want to use (e.g. the shop­ping cart func­tion), are stored on the basis of Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. f GDPR. The web­site oper­a­tor has a legit­i­mate inter­est in stor­ing cook­ies to ensure the tech­ni­cal­ly error free and opti­mised pro­vi­sion of the operator’s ser­vices. If a cor­re­spond­ing agree­ment has been request­ed (e.g. an agree­ment to the stor­age of cook­ies), the pro­cess­ing takes place exclu­sive­ly on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR; the agree­ment can be revoked at any time.

If oth­er cook­ies (e.g. cook­ies for the analy­sis of your brows­ing pat­terns) should be stored, they are addressed sep­a­rate­ly in this Data Pro­tec­tion Dec­la­ra­tion.

Server log files

The provider of this web­site and its pages auto­mat­i­cal­ly col­lects and stores infor­ma­tion in so-called serv­er log files, which your brows­er com­mu­ni­cates to us auto­mat­i­cal­ly. The infor­ma­tion com­pris­es:

  • The type and ver­sion of brows­er used
  • The used oper­at­ing sys­tem
  • Refer­rer URL
  • The host­name of the access­ing com­put­er
  • The time of the serv­er inquiry
  • The IP address

This data is not merged with oth­er data sources.

This data is record­ed on the basis of Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. f GDPR. The oper­a­tor of the web­site has a legit­i­mate inter­est in the tech­ni­cal­ly error free depic­tion and the opti­miza­tion of the operator’s web­site. In order to achieve this, serv­er log files must be record­ed.

Contact form

If you sub­mit inquiries to us via our con­tact form, the infor­ma­tion pro­vid­ed in the con­tact form as well as any con­tact infor­ma­tion pro­vid­ed there­in will be stored by us in order to han­dle your inquiry and in the event that we have fur­ther ques­tions. We will not share this infor­ma­tion with­out your con­sent.

The pro­cess­ing of these data is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR, if your request is relat­ed to the exe­cu­tion of a con­tract or if it is nec­es­sary to car­ry out pre-con­trac­tu­al mea­sures. In all oth­er cas­es the pro­cess­ing is based on our legit­i­mate inter­est in the effec­tive pro­cess­ing of the requests addressed to us (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f DSGVO) or on your agree­ment (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a DSGVO) if this has been request­ed.

The infor­ma­tion you have entered into the con­tact form shall remain with us until you ask us to erad­i­cate the data, revoke your con­sent to the archiv­ing of data or if the pur­pose for which the infor­ma­tion is being archived no longer exists (e.g. after we have con­clud­ed our response to your inquiry). This shall be with­out prej­u­dice to any manda­to­ry legal pro­vi­sions – in par­tic­u­lar reten­tion peri­ods.

Request by e‑mail, telephone or fax

If you con­tact us by e‑mail, tele­phone or fax, your request, includ­ing all result­ing per­son­al data (name, request) will be stored and processed by us for the pur­pose of pro­cess­ing your request. We do not pass these data on with­out your con­sent.

The pro­cess­ing of these data is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR, if your request is relat­ed to the exe­cu­tion of a con­tract or if it is nec­es­sary to car­ry out pre-con­trac­tu­al mea­sures. In all oth­er cas­es, the pro­cess­ing is based on your con­sent (Arti­cle 6 (1) a GDPR) and/or on our legit­i­mate inter­ests (Arti­cle 6 (1) (f) GDPR), since we have a legit­i­mate inter­est in the effec­tive pro­cess­ing of requests addressed to us.

The data sent by you to us via con­tact requests remain with us until you request us to delete, revoke your con­sent to the stor­age or the pur­pose for the data stor­age laps­es (e.g. after com­ple­tion of your request). Manda­to­ry statu­to­ry pro­vi­sions — in par­tic­u­lar statu­to­ry reten­tion peri­ods — remain unaf­fect­ed.

Registration on this website

You have the option to reg­is­ter on this web­site to be able to use addi­tion­al web­site func­tions. We shall use the data you enter only for the pur­pose of using the respec­tive offer or ser­vice you have reg­is­tered for. The required infor­ma­tion we request at the time of reg­is­tra­tion must be entered in full. Oth­er­wise we shall reject the reg­is­tra­tion.

To noti­fy you of any impor­tant changes to the scope of our port­fo­lio or in the event of tech­ni­cal mod­i­fi­ca­tions, we shall use the e‑mail address pro­vid­ed dur­ing the reg­is­tra­tion process.

We shall process the data entered dur­ing the reg­is­tra­tion process on the basis of your con­sent (Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. a GDPR).

The data record­ed dur­ing the reg­is­tra­tion process shall be stored by us as long as you are reg­is­tered on this web­site. Sub­se­quent­ly, such data shall be delet­ed. This shall be with­out prej­u­dice to manda­to­ry statu­to­ry reten­tion oblig­a­tions.

Processing of data (customer and contract data)

We col­lect, process and use per­son­al data only to the extent nec­es­sary for the estab­lish­ment, con­tent orga­ni­za­tion or change of the legal rela­tion­ship (data inven­to­ry). These actions are tak­en on the basis of Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. b GDPR, which per­mits the pro­cess­ing of data for the ful­fil­ment of a con­tract or pre-con­trac­tu­al actions. We col­lect, process and use per­son­al data con­cern­ing the use of this web­site (usage data) only to the extent that this is nec­es­sary to make it pos­si­ble for users to uti­lize the ser­vices and to bill for them.

The col­lect­ed cus­tomer data shall be erad­i­cat­ed upon com­ple­tion of the order or the ter­mi­na­tion of the busi­ness rela­tion­ship. This shall be with­out prej­u­dice to any statu­to­ry reten­tion man­dates.

Data transfer upon closing of contracts for online stores, retailers and the shipment of merchandise

We share per­son­al data with third par­ties only if this is nec­es­sary in con­junc­tion with the han­dling of the con­tract; for instance, with com­pa­nies entrust­ed with the ship­ment of goods or the finan­cial insti­tu­tion tasked with the pro­cess­ing of pay­ments. Any fur­ther trans­fer of data shall not occur or shall only occur if you have express­ly con­sent­ed to the trans­fer. Any shar­ing of your data with third par­ties in the absence of your express con­sent, for instance for adver­tis­ing pur­pos­es, shall not occur.

The basis for the pro­cess­ing of data is Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. b GDPR, which per­mits the pro­cess­ing of data for the ful­fil­ment of a con­tract or for pre-con­trac­tu­al actions.

Data transfer upon closing of contracts for services and digital content

We share per­son­al data with third par­ties only if this is nec­es­sary in con­junc­tion with the han­dling of the con­tract; for instance, with the finan­cial insti­tu­tion tasked with the pro­cess­ing of pay­ments.

Any fur­ther trans­fer of data shall not occur or shall only occur if you have express­ly con­sent­ed to the trans­fer. Any shar­ing of your data with third par­ties in the absence of your express con­sent, for instance for adver­tis­ing pur­pos­es, shall not occur.

The basis for the pro­cess­ing of data is Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. b GDPR, which per­mits the pro­cess­ing of data for the ful­fil­ment of a con­tract or for pre-con­trac­tu­al actions.

5. Newsletter

Newsletter data

If you would like to sub­scribe to the newslet­ter offered on this web­site, we will need from you an e‑mail address as well as infor­ma­tion that allow us to ver­i­fy that you are the own­er of the e‑mail address pro­vid­ed and con­sent to the receipt of the newslet­ter. No fur­ther data shall be col­lect­ed or shall be col­lect­ed only on a vol­un­tary basis. We shall use such data only for the send­ing of the request­ed infor­ma­tion and shall not share such data with any third par­ties.

The pro­cess­ing of the infor­ma­tion entered into the newslet­ter sub­scrip­tion form shall occur exclu­sive­ly on the basis of your con­sent (Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. a GDPR). You may revoke the con­sent you have giv­en to the archiv­ing of data, the e‑mail address and the use of this infor­ma­tion for the send­ing of the newslet­ter at any time, for instance by click­ing on the „Unsub­scribe“ link in the newslet­ter. This shall be with­out prej­u­dice to the law­ful­ness of any data pro­cess­ing trans­ac­tions that have tak­en place to date.

The data deposit­ed with us for the pur­pose of sub­scrib­ing to the newslet­ter will be stored by us until you unsub­scribe from the newslet­ter or the newslet­ter ser­vice provider and delet­ed from the newslet­ter dis­tri­b­u­tion list after you unsub­scribe from the newslet­ter. Data stored for oth­er pur­pos­es with us remain unaf­fect­ed.

After you unsub­scribe from the newslet­ter dis­tri­b­u­tion list, your e‑mail address may be stored by us or the newslet­ter ser­vice provider in a black­list to pre­vent future mail­ings. The data from the black­list is used only for this pur­pose and not merged with oth­er data. This serves both your inter­est and our inter­est in com­ply­ing with the legal require­ments when send­ing newslet­ters (legit­i­mate inter­est with­in the mean­ing of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR). The stor­age in the black­list is indef­i­nite. You may object to the stor­age if your inter­ests out­weigh our legit­i­mate inter­est.

MailJet

This web­site uses Mail­jet for send­ing newslet­ters. The provider is Mail­jet SAS (Glob­al HQ) office and postal address Paris: 13–13 to, rue de l’Aubrac, 75012 Paris, France.

Mail­jet is a ser­vice with which, among oth­er things, the dis­patch of newslet­ters can be organ­ised and analysed. The data entered by you for the pur­pose of receiv­ing the newslet­ter will be stored on the servers of Mail­jet in Ger­many.

If you don’t want Mail­jet to analyse you, you must unsub­scribe from the newslet­ter. For this pur­pose, we pro­vide a cor­re­spond­ing link in every newslet­ter mes­sage. Fur­ther­more, you can unsub­scribe from the newslet­ter direct­ly on the web­site.

Data analy­sis by Mail­jet

With the aid of Mail­jet we are able to analyse our newslet­ter cam­paigns. For exam­ple, we can see if a newslet­ter mes­sage has been opened and which links have been clicked. In this way, we can deter­mine which links have been clicked par­tic­u­lar­ly often.

We can also see whether cer­tain pre­vi­ous­ly defined actions were per­formed after opening/clicking (con­ver­sion rate). For exam­ple, we can tell if you have made a pur­chase after click­ing on the newslet­ter.

Mail­jet also allows us to clas­si­fy newslet­ter recip­i­ents into dif­fer­ent cat­e­gories („clus­ters“). For exam­ple, the newslet­ter recip­i­ents can be sub­di­vid­ed accord­ing to age, gen­der or place of res­i­dence. In this way, the newslet­ters can be bet­ter adapt­ed to the respec­tive tar­get groups.

For detailed infor­ma­tion on the func­tions of Mail­jet, please refer to the fol­low­ing link: https://www.mailjet.de/funktion/.

Mail­jet’s pri­va­cy pol­i­cy can be found at: https://www.mailjet.de/sicherheit-datenschutz/.

Legal Basis

Data pro­cess­ing is based on your agree­ment (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR). You can revoke this agree­ment at any time. The legal­i­ty of the data pro­cess­ing oper­a­tions that have already tak­en place remains unaf­fect­ed by the revo­ca­tion.

The data deposit­ed with us for the pur­pose of sub­scrib­ing to the newslet­ter will be stored by us until you unsub­scribe from the newslet­ter or the newslet­ter ser­vice provider and delet­ed from the newslet­ter dis­tri­b­u­tion list after you unsub­scribe from the newslet­ter. Data stored for oth­er pur­pos­es with us remain unaf­fect­ed.

After you unsub­scribe from the newslet­ter dis­tri­b­u­tion list, your e‑mail address may be stored by us or the newslet­ter ser­vice provider in a black­list to pre­vent future mail­ings. The data from the black­list is used only for this pur­pose and not merged with oth­er data. This serves both your inter­est and our inter­est in com­ply­ing with the legal require­ments when send­ing newslet­ters (legit­i­mate inter­est with­in the mean­ing of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR). The stor­age in the black­list is indef­i­nite. You may object to the stor­age if your inter­ests out­weigh our legit­i­mate inter­est.

We have entered into a con­tract data pro­cess­ing agree­ment with Mail­Jet and imple­ment the strict pro­vi­sions of the Ger­man data pro­tec­tion agen­cies to the fullest when using Mail­Jet.

6. Plug-ins and Tools

YouTube with expanded data protection integration

Our web­site embeds videos of the web­site YouTube. The web­site oper­a­tor is Google Ire­land Lim­it­ed („Google“), Gor­don House, Bar­row Street, Dublin 4, Ire­land.

We use YouTube in the expand­ed data pro­tec­tion mode. Accord­ing to YouTube, this mode ensures that YouTube does not store any infor­ma­tion about vis­i­tors to this web­site before they watch the video. Nev­er­the­less, this does not nec­es­sar­i­ly mean that the shar­ing of data with YouTube part­ners can be ruled out as a result of the expand­ed data pro­tec­tion mode. For instance, regard­less of whether you are watch­ing a video, YouTube will always estab­lish a con­nec­tion with the Google Dou­bleClick net­work.

As soon as you start to play a YouTube video on this web­site, a con­nec­tion to YouTube’s servers will be estab­lished. As a result, the YouTube serv­er will be noti­fied, which of our pages you have vis­it­ed. If you are logged into your YouTube account while you vis­it our site, you enable YouTube to direct­ly allo­cate your brows­ing pat­terns to your per­son­al pro­file. You have the option to pre­vent this by log­ging out of your YouTube account.

Fur­ther­more, after you have start­ed to play a video, YouTube will be able to place var­i­ous cook­ies on your device. With the assis­tance of these cook­ies, YouTube will be able to obtain infor­ma­tion about our web­site’s vis­i­tors. Among oth­er things, this infor­ma­tion will be used to gen­er­ate video sta­tis­tics with the aim of improv­ing the user friend­li­ness of the site and to pre­vent attempts to com­mit fraud. These cook­ies will stay on your device until you delete them.

Under cer­tain cir­cum­stances, addi­tion­al data pro­cess­ing trans­ac­tions may be trig­gered after you have start­ed to play a YouTube video, which are beyond our con­trol.

The use of YouTube is based on our inter­est in pre­sent­ing our online con­tent in an appeal­ing man­ner. Pur­suant to Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. f GDPR, this is a legit­i­mate inter­est. If a cor­re­spond­ing agree­ment has been request­ed (e.g. an agree­ment to the stor­age of cook­ies), the pro­cess­ing takes place exclu­sive­ly on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR; the agree­ment can be revoked at any time.

For more infor­ma­tion on how YouTube han­dles user data, please con­sult the YouTube Data Pri­va­cy Pol­i­cy under: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en.

Google Maps (with consent)

This web­site uses Google Maps, a mapping/location ser­vice, via an API. The provider is Google Ire­land Lim­it­ed („Google“), Gor­don House, Bar­row Street, Dublin 4, Ire­land.

To war­rant data pro­tec­tion on this web­site, you will find that Google Maps has been deac­ti­vat­ed when you vis­it this web­site for the first time. A direct con­nec­tion to Google’s servers will not be estab­lished until you have acti­vat­ed Google Maps autonomous­ly at your end (i.e. giv­en your con­sent pur­suant to Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. a GDPR). This will pre­vent the trans­fer of your data to Google dur­ing your first vis­it to our web­site.

Once you have acti­vat­ed the ser­vice, Google Maps will store your IP address. As a rule, it is sub­se­quent­ly trans­ferred to a Google serv­er in the Unit­ed States, where it is stored. The provider of this web­site does not have any con­trol over this data trans­fer once Google Maps has been acti­vat­ed.

For more infor­ma­tion about the han­dling of user data, please con­sult the Data Pri­va­cy Dec­la­ra­tion of Google under the fol­low­ing link: https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/.

Google reCAPTCHA

We use „Google reCAPTCHA“ (here­inafter referred to as „reCAPTCHA“) on this web­site. The provider is Google Ire­land Lim­it­ed („Google“), Gor­don House, Bar­row Street, Dublin 4, Ire­land.

The pur­pose of reCAPTCHA is to deter­mine whether data entered on this web­site (e.g. infor­ma­tion entered into a con­tact form) is being pro­vid­ed by a human user or by an auto­mat­ed pro­gram. To deter­mine this, reCAPTCHA analy­ses the behav­iour of the web­site vis­i­tors based on a vari­ety of para­me­ters. This analy­sis is trig­gered auto­mat­i­cal­ly as soon as the web­site vis­i­tor enters the site. For this analy­sis, reCAPTCHA eval­u­ates a vari­ety of data (e.g. IP address, time the web­site vis­i­tor spent on the site or cur­sor move­ments ini­ti­at­ed by the user). The data tracked dur­ing such analy­ses are for­ward­ed to Google.

reCAPTCHA analy­ses run entire­ly in the back­ground. Web­site vis­i­tors are not alert­ed that an analy­sis is under­way.

The data is processed on the basis of Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. f GDPR. It is in the web­site oper­a­tors legit­i­mate inter­est, to pro­tect the operator’s web con­tent against mis­use by auto­mat­ed indus­tri­al espi­onage sys­tems and against SPAM.

For more infor­ma­tion about Google reCAPTCHA please refer to the Google Data Pri­va­cy Dec­la­ra­tion and Terms Of Use under the fol­low­ing links: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en and https://policies.google.com/terms?hl=en.

7. Custom Services

Job Applications

We offer web­site vis­i­tors the oppor­tu­ni­ty to sub­mit job appli­ca­tions to us (e.g. via e‑mail, via postal ser­vices on by sub­mit­ting the online job appli­ca­tion form). Below, we will brief you on the scope, pur­pose and use of the per­son­al data col­lect­ed from you in con­junc­tion with the appli­ca­tion process. We assure you that the col­lec­tion, pro­cess­ing and use of your data will occur in com­pli­ance with the applic­a­ble data pri­va­cy rights and all oth­er statu­to­ry pro­vi­sions and that your data will always be treat­ed as strict­ly con­fi­den­tial. 

Scope and pur­pose of the col­lec­tion of data

If you sub­mit a job appli­ca­tion to us, we will process any affil­i­at­ed per­son­al data (e.g. con­tact and com­mu­ni­ca­tions data, appli­ca­tion doc­u­ments, notes tak­en dur­ing job inter­views, etc.), if they are required to make a deci­sion con­cern­ing the estab­lish­ment or an employ­ment rela­tion­ship. The legal grounds for the afore­men­tioned are § 26 New GDPR accord­ing to Ger­man Law (Nego­ti­a­tion of an Employ­ment Rela­tion­ship), Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. b GDPR (Gen­er­al Con­tract Nego­ti­a­tions) and – pro­vid­ed you have giv­en us your con­sent – Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. a GDPR. You may revoke any con­sent giv­en at any time. With­in our com­pa­ny, your per­son­al data will only be shared with indi­vid­u­als who are involved in the pro­cess­ing of your job appli­ca­tion.

If your job appli­ca­tion should result in your recruit­ment, the data you have sub­mit­ted will be archived on the grounds of § 26 New GDPR and Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. b GDPR for the pur­pose of imple­ment­ing the employ­ment rela­tion­ship in our data pro­cess­ing sys­tem.

Data Archiv­ing Peri­od

If we are unable to make you a job offer or you reject a job offer or with­draw your appli­ca­tion, we reserve the right to retain the data you have sub­mit­ted on the basis of our legit­i­mate inter­ests (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO) for up to 6 months from the end of the appli­ca­tion pro­ce­dure (rejec­tion or with­draw­al of the appli­ca­tion). After­wards the data will be delet­ed, and the phys­i­cal appli­ca­tion doc­u­ments will be destroyed. The stor­age serves in par­tic­u­lar as evi­dence in the event of a legal dis­pute. If it is evi­dent that the data will be required after the expiry of the 6‑month peri­od (e.g. due to an impend­ing or pend­ing legal dis­pute), dele­tion will only take place when the pur­pose for fur­ther stor­age no longer applies.

Longer stor­age may also take place if you have giv­en your agree­ment (Arti­cle 6 (1) (a) GDPR) or if statu­to­ry data reten­tion require­ments pre­clude the dele­tion.

Admis­sion to the appli­cant pool

If we do not make you a job offer, you may be able to join our appli­cant pool. In case of admis­sion, all doc­u­ments and infor­ma­tion from the appli­ca­tion will be trans­ferred to the appli­cant pool in order to con­tact you in case of suit­able vacan­cies.

Admis­sion to the appli­cant pool is based exclu­sive­ly on your express agree­ment (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR). The sub­mis­sion agree­ment is vol­un­tary and has no rela­tion to the ongo­ing appli­ca­tion pro­ce­dure. The affect­ed per­son can revoke his agree­ment at any time. In this case, the data from the appli­cant pool will be irrev­o­ca­bly delet­ed, pro­vid­ed there are no legal rea­sons for stor­age.

The data from the appli­cant pool will be irrev­o­ca­bly delet­ed no lat­er than two years after con­sent has been grant­ed.
