Privacy

We are very deligh­ted that you have shown inte­rest in our enter­pri­se. Data pro­tec­tion is of a par­ti­cu­lar­ly high prio­ri­ty for the manage­ment of the eta­tro­nix GmbH. The use of the Internet pages of the eta­tro­nix is pos­si­ble without any indi­ca­ti­on of per­so­nal data; howe­ver, if a data sub­ject wants to use spe­cial enter­pri­se ser­vices via our web­site, pro­ces­sing of per­so­nal data could beco­me necessa­ry. If the pro­ces­sing of per­so­nal data is necessa­ry and the­re is no sta­tu­to­ry basis for such pro­ces­sing, we gene­ral­ly obtain con­sent from the data subject.

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 the eta­tro­nix. By means of this data pro­tec­tion decla­ra­ti­on, our enter­pri­se 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, the eta­tro­nix 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, so 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 telephone.

1. Definitions

The data pro­tec­tion decla­ra­ti­on of the eta­tro­nix 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.

  • c) 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.

  • d) Restriction of processing

    Restriction of pro­ces­sing is the mar­king of stored per­so­nal data with the aim of limi­t­ing their pro­ces­sing in the future.

  • e) Profiling

    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 ana­ly­se or pre­dict aspects con­cer­ning that natu­ral person’s per­for­mance at work, eco­no­mic situa­ti­on, health, per­so­nal pre­fe­ren­ces, inte­rests, relia­bi­li­ty, beha­viour, loca­ti­on or movements.

  • f) Pseudonymisation

    Pseudonymisation 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 orga­ni­sa­tio­nal 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.

  • h) Processor

    Processor is a natu­ral or legal per­son, public aut­ho­ri­ty, agen­cy or other body which pro­ces­ses per­so­nal data on behalf of the controller.

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 aut­ho­ri­sed to pro­cess per­so­nal data.

  • k) Consent

    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

3. Cookies

The Internet pages of the eta­tro­nix use coo­kies. Cookies are text files that are stored in a com­pu­ter sys­tem via an Internet browser.

Many Internet sites and ser­vers use coo­kies. Many coo­kies con­tain a so-called coo­kie ID. A coo­kie ID is a uni­que iden­ti­fier of the coo­kie. It con­sists of a cha­rac­ter string through which Internet pages and ser­vers can be assi­gned to the spe­ci­fic Internet brow­ser in which the coo­kie was stored. This allows visi­ted Internet sites and ser­vers to dif­fe­ren­tia­te the indi­vi­du­al brow­ser of the dats sub­ject from other Internet brow­sers that con­tain other coo­kies. A spe­ci­fic Internet brow­ser can be reco­gni­zed and iden­ti­fied using the uni­que coo­kie ID.

Through the use of coo­kies, the eta­tro­nix can pro­vi­de the users of this web­site with more user-friendly ser­vices that would not be pos­si­ble without the coo­kie setting.

By means of a coo­kie, the infor­ma­ti­on and offers on our web­site can be opti­mi­zed with the user in mind. Cookies allow us, as pre­vious­ly men­tio­ned, to reco­gni­ze our web­site users. The pur­po­se of this reco­gni­ti­on is to make it easier for users to uti­li­ze our web­site. The web­site user that uses coo­kies, e.g. does not have to enter access data each time the web­site is acces­sed, becau­se this is taken over by the web­site, and the coo­kie is thus stored on the user’s com­pu­ter sys­tem. Another examp­le is the coo­kie of a shop­ping cart in an online shop. The online store 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.

4. Collection of general data and information

The web­site of the eta­tro­nix 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, the eta­tro­nix 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, the eta­tro­nix 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.

5. Contact possibility via the website

The web­site of the eta­tro­nix con­tains infor­ma­ti­on that enab­les a quick elec­tro­nic con­ta­ct to our enter­pri­se, 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. There is no trans­fer of this per­so­nal data to third parties.

6. 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.

7. Rights of the data subject

  • a) Right of confirmation

    Each data sub­ject shall have the right gran­ted by the European legis­la­tor to obtain from the con­trol­ler the con­fir­ma­ti­on as to whe­ther or not per­so­nal data con­cer­ning him or her are being pro­ces­sed.

    In order to assert the right to data por­ta­bi­li­ty, the data sub­ject may at any time con­ta­ct any employee of the etatronix.

  • g) Right to object

    Each data sub­ject shall have the right gran­ted by the European legis­la­tor to object, on grounds rela­ting to his or her par­ti­cu­lar situa­ti­on, at any time, to pro­ces­sing of per­so­nal data con­cer­ning him or her, which is based on point (e) or (f) of Article 6(1) of the GDPR. This also app­lies to pro­filing based on the­se provisions.

    The eta­tro­nix shall no lon­ger pro­cess the per­so­nal data in the event of the objec­tion, unless we can demons­tra­te com­pel­ling legi­ti­ma­te grounds for the pro­ces­sing which over­ri­de the inte­rests, rights and free­doms of the data sub­ject, or for the estab­lish­ment, exer­cise or defence of legal claims.

    If the eta­tro­nix pro­ces­ses per­so­nal data for direct mar­ke­ting pur­po­ses, the data sub­ject shall have the right to object at any time to pro­ces­sing of per­so­nal data con­cer­ning him or her for such mar­ke­ting. This app­lies to pro­filing to the extent that it is rela­ted to such direct mar­ke­ting. If the data sub­ject objects to the eta­tro­nix to the pro­ces­sing for direct mar­ke­ting pur­po­ses, the eta­tro­nix will no lon­ger pro­cess the per­so­nal data for the­se purposes.

    In addi­ti­on, the data sub­ject has the right, on grounds rela­ting to his or her par­ti­cu­lar situa­ti­on, to object to pro­ces­sing of per­so­nal data con­cer­ning him or her by the eta­tro­nix for sci­en­ti­fic or his­to­ri­cal rese­arch pur­po­ses, or for sta­tis­ti­cal pur­po­ses pur­suant to Article 89(1) of the GDPR, unless the pro­ces­sing is necessa­ry for the per­for­mance of a task car­ri­ed out for rea­sons of public interest.

    In order to exer­cise the right to object, the data sub­ject may con­ta­ct any employee of the eta­tro­nix. In addi­ti­on, the data sub­ject is free in the con­text of the use of infor­ma­ti­on socie­ty ser­vices, and not­with­stan­ding Directive 2002/58/EC, to use his or her right to object by auto­ma­ted means using tech­ni­cal specifications.

  • h) Automated individual decision-making, including profiling

    Each data sub­ject shall have the right gran­ted by the European legis­la­tor not to be sub­ject to a decisi­on based sole­ly on auto­ma­ted pro­ces­sing, inclu­ding pro­filing, which pro­du­ces legal effects con­cer­ning him or her, or simi­lar­ly signi­fi­cant­ly affects him or her, as long as the decisi­on (1) is not is necessa­ry for ent­e­ring into, or the per­for­mance of, a con­tract bet­ween the data sub­ject and a data con­trol­ler, or (2) is not aut­ho­ri­sed by Union or Member State law to which the con­trol­ler is sub­ject and which also lays down sui­ta­ble mea­su­res to safe­guard the data subject’s rights and free­doms and legi­ti­ma­te inte­rests, or (3) is not based on the data subject’s expli­cit consent.

    If the decisi­on (1) is necessa­ry for ent­e­ring into, or the per­for­mance of, a con­tract bet­ween the data sub­ject and a data con­trol­ler, or (2) it is based on the data subject’s expli­cit con­sent, the eta­tro­nix shall imple­ment sui­ta­ble mea­su­res to safe­guard the data subject’s rights and free­doms and legi­ti­ma­te inte­rests, at least the right to obtain human inter­ven­ti­on on the part of the con­trol­ler, to express his or her point of view and con­test the decision.

    If the data sub­ject wis­hes to exer­cise the rights con­cer­ning auto­ma­ted indi­vi­du­al decision-making, he or she may, at any time, con­ta­ct any employee of the etatronix.

  • i) Right to withdraw data protection consent

    Each data sub­ject shall have the right gran­ted by the European legis­la­tor to with­draw his or her con­sent to pro­ces­sing of his or her per­so­nal data at any time.

    If the data sub­ject wis­hes to exer­cise the right to with­draw the con­sent, he or she may, at any time, con­ta­ct any employee of the etatronix.

8. Data protection provisions about the application and use of Google Analytics (with anonymization function)

On this web­site, the con­trol­ler has inte­gra­ted the com­po­nent of Google Analytics (with the anony­mi­zer func­tion). Google Analytics is a 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 Analytics com­po­nent is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043–1351, United States.

For the web ana­ly­tics through Google Analytics the con­trol­ler uses the app­li­ca­ti­on “_gat. _anonymizeIp”. By means of this app­li­ca­ti­on the IP address of the Internet con­nec­tion of the data sub­ject is abrid­ged by Google and anony­mi­sed when acces­sing our web­sites from a Member State of the European Union or ano­t­her Contracting State to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.

The pur­po­se of the Google Analytics 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 Analytics 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 Analytics com­po­nent was inte­gra­ted, the Internet brow­ser on the infor­ma­ti­on tech­no­lo­gy sys­tem of the data sub­ject will auto­ma­ti­cal­ly sub­mit data through the Google Analytics 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.

In addi­ti­on, the data sub­ject has the pos­si­bi­li­ty of objec­ting to a collec­tion of data that are gene­ra­ted by Google Analytics, which is rela­ted to the use of this web­site, as well as the pro­ces­sing of this data by Google and the chan­ce to pre­clu­de any such. For this pur­po­se, the data sub­ject must down­load a brow­ser add-on under the link https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout and install it. This brow­ser add-on tells Google Analytics through a JavaScript, that any data and infor­ma­ti­on about the visits of Internet pages may not be trans­mit­ted to Google Analytics. The instal­la­ti­on of the brow­ser add-ons is con­si­de­red an objec­tion by Google. If the infor­ma­ti­on tech­no­lo­gy sys­tem of the data sub­ject is later dele­ted, for­mat­ted, or new­ly instal­led, then the data sub­ject must reinstall the brow­ser add-ons to dis­able Google Analytics. If the brow­ser add-on was unin­stal­led by the data sub­ject or any other per­son who is attri­bu­ta­ble to their sphe­re of com­pe­tence, or is dis­ab­led, it is pos­si­ble to exe­cu­te the reinstal­la­ti­on or reac­ti­va­ti­on of the brow­ser add-ons.

Alternatively, you can dis­able the future ana­ly­sis of your web­site visit by Google Analytics, by “cli­cking” on the link below. By cli­cking on the link, a so-called “opt-out coo­kie” is con­fi­gu­red, which means that the ana­ly­sis of your visit to our site will be pre­ven­ted in the future: Place Opt-Out Cookie

Please note that if you dele­te the coo­kies in your brow­ser set­tings, this may also dele­te the opt-out coo­kie and its re-activation may beco­me necessary.

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/.

9. Data protection provisions about the application and use of Google-AdWords

On this web­site, the con­trol­ler has inte­gra­ted Google AdWords. Google AdWords is a ser­vice for Internet adver­ti­sing that allows the adver­ti­ser to place ads in Google search engi­ne results and the Google adver­ti­sing net­work. Google AdWords allows an adver­ti­ser to pre-define spe­ci­fic key­words with the help of which an ad on Google’s search results only then dis­play­ed, when the user uti­li­zes the search engi­ne to retrie­ve a keyword-relevant search result. In the Google Advertising Network, the ads are dis­tri­bu­t­ed on rele­vant web pages using an auto­ma­tic algo­rithm, taking into account the pre­vious­ly defi­ned keywords.

The ope­ra­ting com­pa­ny of Google AdWords is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043–1351, UNITED STATES.

The pur­po­se of Google AdWords is the pro­mo­ti­on of our web­site by the inclu­si­on of rele­vant adver­ti­sing on the web­sites of third par­ties and in the search engi­ne results of the search engi­ne Google and an inser­ti­on of third-party adver­ti­sing on our website.

If a data sub­ject reaches our web­site via a Google ad, a con­ver­si­on coo­kie is filed on the infor­ma­ti­on tech­no­lo­gy sys­tem of the data sub­ject through Google. The defi­ni­ti­on of coo­kies is exp­lai­ned abo­ve. A con­ver­si­on coo­kie loses its vali­di­ty after 30 days and is not used to iden­ti­fy the data sub­ject. If the coo­kie has not expi­red, the con­ver­si­on coo­kie is used to check whe­ther cer­tain sub-pages, e.g, the shop­ping cart from an online shop sys­tem, were cal­led up on our web­site. Through the con­ver­si­on coo­kie, both Google and the con­trol­ler can under­stand whe­ther a per­son who reached an AdWords ad on our web­site gene­ra­ted sales, that is, exe­cu­t­ed or can­ce­led a sale of goods.

The data and infor­ma­ti­on collec­ted through the use of the con­ver­si­on coo­kie is used by Google to crea­te visit sta­tis­tics for our web­site. These visit sta­tis­tics are used in order to deter­mi­ne the total num­ber of users who have been ser­ved through AdWords ads to ascer­tain the suc­cess or fail­u­re of each AdWords ad and to opti­mi­ze our AdWords ads in the future. Neither our com­pa­ny nor other Google AdWords adver­ti­sers recei­ve infor­ma­ti­on from Google that could iden­ti­fy the data subject.

The con­ver­si­on coo­kie stores per­so­nal infor­ma­ti­on, e.g. the Internet pages visi­ted by the data sub­ject. Each time we visit our Internet pages, per­so­nal data, inclu­ding the IP address of the Internet access used by the data sub­ject, is 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, at any time, pre­vent the set­ting of coo­kies by our web­site, as sta­ted abo­ve, by means of a cor­re­spon­ding set­ting of the Internet brow­ser used and thus per­ma­nent­ly deny the set­ting of coo­kies. Such a set­ting of the Internet brow­ser used would also pre­vent Google from pla­cing a con­ver­si­on coo­kie on the infor­ma­ti­on tech­no­lo­gy sys­tem of the data sub­ject. In addi­ti­on, a coo­kie set by Google AdWords may be dele­ted at any time via the Internet brow­ser or other soft­ware programs.

The data sub­ject has a pos­si­bi­li­ty of objec­ting to the inte­rest based adver­ti­se­ment of Google. Therefore, the data sub­ject must access from each of the brow­sers in use the link www.google.de/settings/ads and set the desi­red settings.

Further infor­ma­ti­on and the app­li­ca­ble data pro­tec­tion pro­vi­si­ons of Google may be retrie­ved under https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/.

10. 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 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).

11. 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.

12. Period for which the personal data will be stored

The cri­te­ria used to deter­mi­ne the peri­od of sto­rage of per­so­nal data is the respec­ti­ve sta­tu­to­ry reten­ti­on peri­od. After expi­ra­ti­on of that peri­od, the cor­re­spon­ding data is rou­ti­nely dele­ted, as long as it is no lon­ger necessa­ry for the ful­fill­ment of the con­tract or the initia­ti­on of a contract.

13. 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 any employee. The employee cla­ri­fies 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.

14. Existence of automated decision-making

As a respon­si­ble com­pa­ny, we do not use auto­ma­tic decision-making or profiling.

This Privacy Policy has been gene­ra­ted by the German Association for Data Protection that was deve­lo­ped in coope­ra­ti­on with Privacy Lawyers from WILDE BEUGER SOLMECKE, Cologne.
