Privacy Policy

We take the protection of your personal data very seriously, which is why we always handle your personal data according to statutory data protection provisions. We have appointed an expert and reliable external data protection officer. The external data protection officer is provided by UIMC Dr. Voßbein GmbH & Co. KG.

In the following, we will inform you on how your personal data are processed.

Collection and Processing of Personal Data

You can always use our online services without disclosing your identity. If we do request that you enter personal data (for example, name, address, or e-mail address) on our Internet presence, for example as part of a contact form or when logging in/registering, this is entirely voluntary. We will use this information for our own business purposes (e.g., to send out requested materials/information).

In the event that you have any questions, we offer you the option of contacting us via a form that is provided on our Internet presence. Here, certain data have been labeled “mandatory.” These data are necessary to allocate and answer the request. Any other data can be provided voluntarily. Data for the purpose of contacting us is processed in accordance with Art. 6 (1) a of the GDPR, based on your voluntary consent.

The personal data we collect when you use the contact form is erased once your request has been completed, as well as once the statutory retention requirements under commercial and tax law have expired.

Once consent has been given – for example for the purpose of sending a newsletter or other interesting information on our company – you can withdraw this consent at any time with effect for the future without stating a reason. To do so, please use the above mentioned contact form or any other channel mentioned within the newsletter. 

Cookies

This website uses cookies. Cookies are text files that are stored on your computer and allow an analysis of the Internet presence’s use. In addition, cookies automatically recognize you when you next visit. You can prevent installation of the cookies with an appropriate setting of your browser. This may lead to your not being able to use all offers to their full extent.

Logging

Every time you access our Internet presence, a log is created and processed for statistical purposes. In this process, the individual users remain anonymous:

  • Referrer (the page that linked you to this Internet presence)
  • Search terms (if the referrer is a search engine)
  • The IP is evaluated to determine the country of origin and the provider
  • Browser, operating system, installed plug-ins, and screen resolution
  • Time spent on the pages

Based on our legitimate purpose in accordance with Art. 8 (1) f of the GDPR, we process the aforementioned data for the following purposes:

  • to guarantee the establishment of a smooth connection to the Internet presence,
  • to guarantee convenient use of our Internet presence,
  • to evaluate system security and stability as well as
  • for other administrative purposes.

We reserve the right to inspect this data at a later date if concrete evidence of illegal use becomes known to us. As soon as the data is no longer required to fulfill the purpose, it is erased immediately, but at the latest after six months.

Transfer of data

As a rule, there will be no transfer to third parties for commercial or non-commercial purposes without your explicit consent. We will only transfer your data to third parties if this is legally permitted (for example based on Art. 6 of the GDPR) and/or necessary. In some instances, we use service providers to process data orders as prescribed by law; our website, for example, is hosted by Host Europe GmbH and maintained by wendweb GmbH. We remain fully responsible for processing the data. In some instances, we furthermore use plug-ins by other providers on our Internet presence; for more details on this, please see below.

Web Analysis With Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google, Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses cookies, data files that are saved on your computer and enable an analysis of the use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website (including your abbreviated IP address) will be transmitted to one of Google’s servers in the U.S. and saved there. Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website in order to compile reports for the website operators about the website activities and to furnish additional services connected to the use of the website and the Internet. Google will also transmit this information to third parties, if necessary, provided that this is prescribed by law and insofar as third parties will process these data on behalf of Google. Google will not in any event associate your IP address with any other of Google’s data.

You can withdraw permission for the use of your data by Google Analytics by installing an add-on in your browser. To do so, use the following link, which will take you to Google’s opt-out page: tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout [external page].

The use of SalesViewer® technology

Based on the legitimate interests of the website operator (Art. 6 (1) f of the GDPR), this website uses the SalesViewer® technology provided by SalesViewer® GmbH to collect and store data for marketing, market research and optimization purposes.

This is achieved by means of a code based on JavaScript, which serves to collect and accordingly use company-related data. The data collected by this technology are encrypted using hashing, a one-way function that cannot be reconverted. The data are pseudonymized immediately and are not used to personally identify visitors to this website.

You can withdraw your consent to the collection and storage of your data at any time with effect for the future by clicking this link https://www.salesviewer.com/opt-out, which prevents SalesViewer® from collecting your data within this website in future. In the process, an opt-out cookie for this website is installed on your device. If you delete cookies in this browser, you will need to click on this link again.

Google Tag Manager

The operator of this website uses the Google Tag Manager provided by Google LLC. A tag is a JavaScript snippet that is used to send information to third parties, such as Google. The Google Tag Manager is a tool that allows website operators to manage marketing tags via the Google Tag Manager interface. The Google Tag Manager manages Google’s tags (e.g., the Google Analytics tag), and also supports tags by third-party providers (e.g., SalesViewer® technology). The Google Tag Manager software solution itself, which implements the tags, is a cookie-less domain. The Google Tag Manager triggers other tags, which in turn potentially collect data. The Google Tag Manager does not access this acquired data, but uses the tag to pass the data on to the respective provider of the respective tag being used (Google LLC, SalesViewer® GmbH).

For information on how to withdraw your consent to the processing of your data by the respective tags, please refer to the section on the respective tag listed in this Privacy Statement.

YouTube

Our website uses plug-ins for YouTube, a page operated by Google. The operator of these pages is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. If you visit one of our pages that is equipped with a YouTube plug-in, this establishes a connection to YouTube’s servers. In the process, the YouTube server receives information on which of our pages you have visited. If you are logged in to your YouTube account, you enable Youtube to directly allocate your surfing behavior to your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account. For more information on how user data is handled, please refer to YouTube’s privacy statement at: www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy [external page].

Hotjar


We use Hotjar in order to better understand our users’ needs and to optimize this service and experience. Hotjar is a technology service that helps us better understand our users experience (e.g. how much time they spend on which pages, which links they choose to click, what users do and don’t like, etc.) and this enables us to build and maintain our service with user feedback. Hotjar uses cookies and other technologies to collect data on our users’ behavior and their devices (in particular device's IP address (captured and stored only in anonymized form), device screen size, device type (unique device identifiers), browser information, geographic location (country only), preferred language used to display our website).

Neither Hotjar nor we will ever use this information to identify individual users or to match it with further data on an individual user.
