The use of our websites is generally possible at any time without providing personal data. Insofar as special services of our company are used, the collection and processing of personal data may be necessary. We will inform you about this separately within the framework of this data protection notice.
When you access our websites, the browser used on your terminal device automatically sends information to the server of our websites, which is provided by our web hoster (see section 3. e) below). This information is temporarily stored in a so-called log file. The following information is collected without your intervention and stored until automatic deletion after 12 months:
- IP address of the requesting computer (stored anonymously after collection);
- Date and time of the server request;
- Website from which the access is made (referrer URL);
- Browser used and, if applicable, the operating system of your computer as well as the name of your access provider.
The aforementioned information is only statistically evaluated and used to improve the functionality of our websites and the attractiveness of our offer. The legal basis for this is Art. 6 para. 1 p.1 lit. f) DSGVO ("legitimate interests"). Our legitimate interest arises from the guarantee of a smooth connection setup, the design of the most comfortable and effective use of our websites as well as for reasons of system security. In no case do we use the collected data for the purpose of drawing conclusions about your person.
We offer visitors to our websites the opportunity to contact us via e-mail or an encrypted contact form. You alone decide whether and what information you want to transmit to us when contacting us. In this context, we expressly point out that the electronic transmission of information can have security gaps. Complete protection of data against access by unauthorized third parties is technically not possible.
We collect the following personal data, if provided by you:
- First and last name;
- e-mail address;
- telephone number;
- the request you have communicated.
The data generated in this context is currently stored in the Salesforce Sales Cloud, a service of salesforce.com Germany GmbH, Erika-Mann-Str. 31, 80636 Munich, Germany (hereinafter referred to as "Salesforce") on servers in Germany and France (or generally in the EU). Salesforce is a customer relationship management service and is used by us for the purpose of contact management and quotation generation.
Please note that Salesforce may also process and store your data in third countries outside the European Union (in particular in the USA). For the transfer of data to recipients located in third countries, Salesforce uses the standard contractual clauses of the European Commission to ensure a level of protection adequate to European data protection regulations (Article 46(2) DSGVO).
We have also concluded a Data Processing Addendum with Salesforce.
Your data will be deleted as soon as storage is no longer necessary or - if relevant - upon expiry of the statutory retention periods (6 years for business correspondence), in which case we will restrict data processing as soon as it is no longer necessary.
The legal basis for the processing and storage of the personal data provided by you in the context of contacting us is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. b) DSGVO ("Necessity for the performance of the contract").
The legal basis for the transfer of the data provided by you to Salesforce and the storage of the data by Salesforce is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. b) DSGVO ("Necessity for the performance of the contract") and Art. 28 para. 3 p. 1 DSGVO ("Order processing agreement").
With our newsletter we inform you about us, our products and news concerning our company (hereinafter referred to as "newsletter"). By subscribing to our newsletter, you agree to receive it until revoked.
To subscribe to our newsletter, it is sufficient to provide your e-mail address. Your registration to receive our newsletter is done in a double opt-in process. After your registration, you will receive a confirmation e-mail with a link that you must click to enable receipt of the newsletter. We log your subscription to the newsletter in order to be able to keep a record of your subscription to the newsletter. The processing of your e-mail address is based exclusively on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a) DSGVO).
Our newsletter is sent via "MailChimp", a newsletter sending platform of Rocket Science Group, LLC, located at 675 Ponce De Leon Ave NE #5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA (hereinafter referred to as "MailChimp").
MailChimp is used on the basis of our legitimate interests pursuant to Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. f) DSGVO and a contract processing agreement pursuant to Art. 28 (3) p. 1 DSGVO.
The following information from you will be stored by MailChimp on their servers in the USA:
- The email address you provide
- as well as information about the retrieval and use of the newsletter (see below).
MailChimp uses the above information to send and evaluate the newsletters on our behalf. Furthermore, MailChimp uses this data (in anonymized form) to optimize or improve its own offers, e.g. to technically optimize the dispatch and display of the newsletters or to determine from which countries the newsletter recipients come. MailChimp does not, however, pass this data on to third parties.
We would like to point out that the newsletters contain a web beacon, i.e. a small file that is retrieved from MailChimp's server when our newsletter is opened. As part of the retrieval, technical information (e.g. type of browser used) as well as your IP address and the time of the retrieval are collected. This information is used for the technical improvement of the services.
We also conduct statistical surveys using MailChimp, which include the following evaluations: a.) determining whether a newsletter was opened, b.) when it was opened, c.) which links are clicked and d.) top locations, i.e. those locations where our newsletter was opened most frequently (but without reference to personal data). This information can be assigned to you for technical reasons. However, it is not our intention to observe you. The evaluation of the information only serves us to recognize the reading habits of our users and to adapt our content to them or to send different content according to the interests of our users.
The legal basis for processing the data for statistical purposes, to ensure proper processing of the newsletter subscription and to combat misuse of the recordings provided under the links is, if you have given your consent, Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a) DSGVO, otherwise Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. b) DSGVO ("necessity for the performance of the contract") and Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f) DSGVO ("legitimate interests").
You can cancel the receipt of our newsletter at any time, i.e. revoke your consent. At the same time, your consent to the sending of the newsletter via MailChimp and the statistical analyses will expire. You will find a link to cancel the newsletter at the end of each newsletter.
d) Data security
On our websites, we use the widespread SSL (Secure Socket Layer) procedure in conjunction with the highest encryption level supported by your browser. As a rule, this is a 256-bit encryption. If your browser does not support 256-bit encryption, we use 128-bit technology instead. You can tell whether a single page of our website is encrypted by the closed display of the key or lock symbol in the browser line and by the fact that the browser address line changes from "http://" to "https://".
If SSL encryption is activated, the data that you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
e) IT and hosting services
For our websites, we use IT and hosting services provided by the agency buntebrause GmbH & Co. KG, Maybachstr. 155-159, 50670 Cologne, Germany (hereinafter referred to as "buntebrause").
The services are used by us for the design, construction, technical implementation, programming, administration and maintenance of our websites.
For hosting, buntebrause uses the services of the provider webaix GmbH, Dürener Straße 340, 52249 Eschweiler, Germany (hereinafter referred to as "webaix").
The following data is collected and processed in this process:
- The IP address of the requesting end device,
- date and time of the call to our websites,
- indication of the time difference between the requesting host and the web server,
- the content of the request or the file that was transmitted to the user,
- the access status (successful transmission, error, etc.),
- the amount of data transferred in each case in bytes
- the website from which the access was made,
- the browser used, the operating system, the interface, the language of the browser and the version of the browser software.
The data is stored locally on the webaix server in Aachen (Germany) and deleted as soon as storage is no longer required or - if relevant - the legal retention periods have expired. The IP address is deleted when it can be ruled out that an attack on the Internet infrastructure of webaix has occurred from it. This regularly occurs after eight days.
The use of IT and hosting services is based on our legitimate interests in the efficient and secure provision of our offer in accordance with Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. f) DSGVO and on the basis of an order processing agreement concluded by us with buntebrause (Art. 28 (3) p. 1 DSGVO).
