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 about the respon­si­ble par­ty (refer­red to as the “con­trol­ler” in the GDPR)” in this Pri­va­cy Policy.

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.

Other data shall be recor­ded by our IT sys­tems auto­ma­ti­cal­ly or after you con­sent to its record­ing during your web­site visit. 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 ana­ly­ze 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. If you have con­sen­ted to data pro­ces­sing, you have the opti­on to revo­ke this con­sent at any time, which shall affect all future data pro­ces­sing. Moreo­ver, you have the right to demand that the pro­ces­sing of your data be restric­ted under cer­tain cir­cum­s­tan­ces. Fur­ther­mo­re, you have the right to log a com­p­laint with the com­pe­tent super­vi­sing agency.

Plea­se do not hesi­ta­te to con­ta­ct us at any time if you have ques­ti­ons about this or any other data pro­tec­tion rela­ted issues.

Ana­ly­sis tools and tools pro­vi­ded by third parties

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:

Gar­burg Eti­ket­ten-Druck­sys­te­me GmbH

Pho­ne: +49 (5731) 1750 – 0
E‑mail: info@garburg.de

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.).

Sto­rage duration

Unless a more spe­ci­fic sto­rage peri­od has been spe­ci­fied in this pri­va­cy poli­cy, your per­so­nal data will remain with us until the pur­po­se for which it was collec­ted no lon­ger app­lies. If you assert a jus­ti­fied request for dele­ti­on or revo­ke your con­sent to data pro­ces­sing, your data will be dele­ted, unless we have other legal­ly per­mis­si­ble rea­sons for sto­ring your per­so­nal data (e.g. tax or com­mer­cial law reten­ti­on peri­ods); in the lat­ter case, the dele­ti­on will take place after the­se rea­sons cea­se to apply.

Infor­ma­ti­on on data trans­fer to the USA

Our web­site uses, in par­ti­cu­lar, tools from com­pa­nies based in the USA. When the­se tools are acti­ve, your per­so­nal infor­ma­ti­on may be trans­fer­red to the US ser­vers of the­se com­pa­nies. We must point out that the USA is not a safe third coun­try wit­hin the mea­ning of EU data pro­tec­tion law. US com­pa­nies are requi­red to release per­so­nal data to secu­ri­ty aut­ho­ri­ties without you as the data sub­ject being able to take legal action against this. The pos­si­bi­li­ty can­not the­re­fo­re be exclu­ded that US aut­ho­ri­ties (e.g. secret ser­vices) may pro­cess, eva­lua­te, and per­ma­nent­ly store your data on US ser­vers for moni­to­ring pur­po­ses.  We have no influ­ence over the­se pro­ces­sing activities.

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. 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 pro­gram. You can reco­gni­ze 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.

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.

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. 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 our Site Noti­ce 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

Our web­sites and pages use what the indus­try refers to as “coo­kies.” Coo­kies are small text files that do not cau­se any dama­ge to your device. They are eit­her stored tem­pora­ri­ly for the dura­ti­on of a ses­si­on (ses­si­on coo­kies) or they are per­ma­nent­ly archi­ved on your device (per­ma­nent coo­kies). Ses­si­on coo­kies are auto­ma­ti­cal­ly dele­ted once you ter­mi­na­te your visit. Per­ma­nent coo­kies remain archi­ved on your device until you actively dele­te them, or they are auto­ma­ti­cal­ly era­di­ca­ted by your web browser.

In some cases, it is pos­si­ble that third-par­ty coo­kies are stored on your device once you enter our site (third-par­ty coo­kies). The­se coo­kies enab­le you or us to take advan­ta­ge of cer­tain ser­vices offe­red by the third par­ty (e.g. coo­kies for the pro­ces­sing of pay­ment services).

Coo­kies have a varie­ty of func­tions. Many coo­kies are tech­ni­cal­ly essen­ti­al sin­ce cer­tain web­site func­tions would not work in the absence of the coo­kies (e.g. the shop­ping cart func­tion or the dis­play of vide­os). The pur­po­se of other coo­kies may be the ana­ly­sis of user pat­terns or the dis­play of pro­mo­tio­nal messages.

Coo­kies, which are requi­red for the per­for­mance of elec­tro­nic com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on tran­sac­tions (requi­red coo­kies) or for the pro­vi­si­on of cer­tain func­tions you want to use (func­tio­n­al coo­kies, e.g. for the shop­ping cart func­tion) or tho­se that are necessa­ry for the opti­miz­a­ti­on of the web­site (e.g. coo­kies that pro­vi­de mea­sura­ble insights into the web audi­ence), shall be stored on the basis of Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. f GDPR, unless a dif­fe­rent legal basis is cited. The ope­ra­tor of the web­site has a legi­ti­ma­te inte­rest in the sto­rage of coo­kies to ensu­re the tech­ni­cal­ly error free and opti­mi­zed pro­vi­si­on of the operator’s ser­vices. If your con­sent to the sto­rage of the coo­kies has been reques­ted, the respec­ti­ve coo­kies are stored exclu­si­ve­ly on the basis of the con­sent obtai­ned (Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. a GDPR); this con­sent may be revo­ked at any time.

You have the opti­on to set up your brow­ser in such a man­ner that you will be noti­fied any time coo­kies are pla­ced and to per­mit the accep­t­ance of coo­kies only in spe­ci­fic cases. You may also exclu­de the accep­t­ance of coo­kies in cer­tain cases or in gene­ral or acti­va­te the dele­te func­tion for the auto­ma­tic era­di­ca­ti­on of coo­kies when the brow­ser clo­ses. If coo­kies are deac­ti­va­ted, the func­tions of this web­site may be limited.

In the event that third-par­ty coo­kies are used or if coo­kies are used for ana­ly­ti­cal pur­po­ses, we will sepa­r­ate­ly noti­fy you in con­junc­tion with this Data Pro­tec­tion Poli­cy and, if app­li­ca­ble, ask for your consent.

Coo­kie Con­sent with Borlabs Cookie

Our web­site uses the Borlabs coo­kie con­sent tech­no­lo­gy to obtain your con­sent to the sto­rage of cer­tain coo­kies in your brow­ser and for their data pri­va­cy pro­tec­tion com­pli­ant docu­men­ta­ti­on. The pro­vi­der of this tech­no­lo­gy is Borlabs — Ben­ja­min A. Born­schein, Georg-Wil­helm-Str. 17, 21107 Ham­burg, Ger­ma­ny (her­ein­af­ter refer­red to as Borlabs).

Whenever you visit our web­site, a Borlabs coo­kie will be stored in your brow­ser, which archi­ves any decla­ra­ti­ons or revo­ca­ti­ons of con­sent you have ent­e­red. The­se data are not shared with the pro­vi­der of the Borlabs technology.

The recor­ded data shall remain archi­ved until you ask us to era­di­ca­te them, dele­te the Borlabs coo­kie on your own or the pur­po­se of sto­ring the data no lon­ger exists. This shall be without pre­ju­di­ce to any reten­ti­on obli­ga­ti­ons man­da­ted by law. To review the details of Borlabs’ data pro­ces­sing poli­ci­es, plea­se visit https://de.borlabs.io/kb/welche-daten-speichert-borlabs-cookie/

We use the Borlabs coo­kie con­sent tech­no­lo­gy to obtain the decla­ra­ti­ons of con­sent man­da­ted by law for the use of coo­kies. The legal basis for the use of such coo­kies is Art. 6 Sect. 1 Sen­tence 1 lit. c GDPR.

Chan­ge coo­kie settings

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 GDPR) or on your agree­ment (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR) 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.

The­se data are pro­ces­sed on the basis of Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. b GDPR if your inqui­ry is rela­ted to the ful­fill­ment of a con­tract or is requi­red for the per­for­mance of pre-con­trac­tu­al mea­su­res. In all other cases, the data are pro­ces­sed on the basis of our legi­ti­ma­te inte­rest in the effec­ti­ve hand­ling of inqui­ries sub­mit­ted to us (Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. f GDPR) or on the basis of your con­sent (Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. a GDPR) if it has been obtained.

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.

The com­ment func­tion on this website

When you use the com­ment func­tion on this web­site, infor­ma­ti­on on the time the com­ment was gene­ra­ted and your e‑mail-address and, if you are not pos­ting anony­mous­ly, the user­na­me you have selec­ted will be archi­ved in addi­ti­on to your comments.

Sto­rage of the IP address

Our com­ment func­tion stores the IP addres­ses of all users who enter comments. Given that we do not review the comments pri­or to publi­shing them, we need this infor­ma­ti­on in order to take action against the aut­hor in the event of rights vio­la­ti­ons, such as defa­ma­ti­on or propaganda.

Sto­rage peri­od for comments

Comments and any affi­lia­ted infor­ma­ti­on shall be stored by us and remain on this web­site until the con­tent the com­ment per­tai­ned to has been dele­ted in its ent­i­re­ty or if the comments had to be dele­ted for legal rea­sons (e.g. insul­ting comments).

Legal basis

Comments are stored on the basis of your con­sent (Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. a GDPR). You have the right to 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.

5. Ana­ly­sis tools and advertising

Goog­le Tag Manager

We use the Goog­le Tag Mana­ger. The pro­vi­der is Goog­le Ire­land Limi­ted, Gor­don House, Bar­row Street, Dub­lin 4, Ireland

The Goog­le Tag Mana­ger is a tool that allows us to inte­gra­te tracking or sta­tis­ti­cal tools and other tech­no­lo­gies on our web­site. The Goog­le Tag Mana­ger its­elf does not crea­te any user pro­files, does not store coo­kies, and does not car­ry out any inde­pen­dent ana­ly­ses. It only mana­ges and runs the tools inte­gra­ted via it. Howe­ver, the Goog­le Tag Mana­ger does collect your IP address, which may also be trans­fer­red to Google’s parent com­pa­ny in the United States.

The Goog­le Tag Mana­ger is used on the basis of Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR. The web­site ope­ra­tor has a legi­ti­ma­te inte­rest in the quick and uncom­pli­ca­ted inte­gra­ti­on and admi­nis­tra­ti­on of various tools on his web­site.

This web­site uses func­tions of the web ana­ly­sis ser­vice Goog­le Ana­ly­tics. The pro­vi­der of this ser­vice is Goog­le Ire­land Limi­ted (“Goog­le”), Gor­don House, Bar­row Street, Dub­lin 4, Ireland.

Goog­le Ana­ly­tics enab­les the web­site ope­ra­tor to ana­ly­ze the beha­vi­or pat­terns of web­site visi­tors. To that end, the web­site ope­ra­tor recei­ves a varie­ty of user data, such as pages acces­sed, time spent on the page, the uti­li­zed ope­ra­ting sys­tem and the user’s ori­gin. Goog­le may con­so­li­da­te the­se data in a pro­fi­le that is allo­ca­ted to the respec­ti­ve user or the user’s device.

Goog­le Ana­ly­tics uses tech­no­lo­gies that make the reco­gni­ti­on of the user for the pur­po­se of ana­ly­zing the user beha­vi­or pat­terns (e.g. coo­kies or device fin­ger­prin­ting). The web­site use infor­ma­ti­on recor­ded by Goog­le is, as a rule trans­fer­red to a Goog­le ser­ver in the United Sta­tes, whe­re it is stored.

This ana­ly­sis tool is used on the basis of Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. f GDPR. The ope­ra­tor of this web­site has a legi­ti­ma­te inte­rest in the ana­ly­sis of user pat­terns to opti­mi­ze both, the ser­vices offe­red online and the operator’s adver­ti­sing acti­vi­ties. 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.

Data trans­mis­si­on to the US is based on the Stan­dard Con­trac­tu­al Clau­ses (SCC) of the Euro­pean Com­mis­si­on. Details can be found here: https://privacy.google.com/businesses/controllerterms/mccs/.

IP anony­miz­a­ti­on

On this web­site, we have acti­va­ted the IP anony­miz­a­ti­on func­tion. As a result, your IP address will be abbre­via­ted by Goog­le wit­hin the mem­ber sta­tes of the Euro­pean Uni­on or in other sta­tes that have rati­fied the Con­ven­ti­on on the Euro­pean Eco­no­mic Area pri­or to its trans­mis­si­on to the United Sta­tes. The full IP address will be trans­mit­ted to one of Google’s ser­vers in the United Sta­tes and abbre­via­ted the­re only in excep­tio­nal cases.

Demo­gra­phic para­me­ters pro­vi­ded by Goog­le Analytics

This web­site uses the “demo­gra­phic cha­rac­te­ris­tics” func­tion of Goog­le Ana­ly­tics, to be able to dis­play to the web­site visi­tor com­pa­ti­ble ads wit­hin the Goog­le adver­ti­sing net­work. This allows reports to be crea­ted that con­tain infor­ma­ti­on about the age, gen­der, and inte­rests of the web­site visi­tors. The sources of this infor­ma­ti­on are inte­rest-rela­ted adver­ti­sing by Goog­le as well as visi­tor data obtai­ned from third-par­ty pro­vi­ders. This data can­not be allo­ca­ted to a spe­ci­fic indi­vi­du­al. You have the opti­on to deac­ti­va­te this func­tion at any time by making per­ti­nent set­tings chan­ges for adver­ti­sing in your Goog­le account or you can gene­ral­ly pro­hi­bit the record­ing of your data by Goog­le Ana­ly­tics as exp­lai­ned in sec­tion “Objec­tion to the record­ing of data”.

Goog­le Remarketing

This web­site uses the func­tions of Goog­le Ana­ly­tics Remar­ke­ting. The pro­vi­der of the­se solu­ti­ons is Goog­le Ire­land Limi­ted (“Goog­le”), Gor­don House, Bar­row Street, Dub­lin 4, Ireland.

Goog­le Remar­ke­ting ana­ly­zes your user pat­terns on our web­site (e.g. clicks on spe­ci­fic pro­ducts), to allo­ca­te a cer­tain adver­ti­sing tar­get groups to you and to sub­se­quent­ly dis­play matching online offers to you when you visit other online offers (remar­ke­ting or retargeting).

Moreo­ver, it is pos­si­ble to link the adver­ti­sing tar­get groups gene­ra­ted with Goog­le Remar­ke­ting to device encom­pas­sing func­tions of Goog­le. This makes it pos­si­ble to dis­play inte­rest-based cus­to­mi­zed adver­ti­sing messages, depen­ding on your pri­or usa­ge and brow­sing pat­terns on a device (e.g. cell pho­ne) in a man­ner tailo­red to you as well as on any of your devices (e.g. tablet or PC).

If you have a Goog­le account, you have the opti­on to object to per­so­na­li­zed adver­ti­sing under the fol­lowing link: https://www.google.com/settings/ads/onweb/.

The use of Goog­le Remar­ke­ting is based on Art. 6 1 lit. et seq. GDPR. The web­site ope­ra­tor has a legi­ti­ma­te inte­rest in the mar­ke­ting of the operator’s pro­ducts that is as effec­ti­ve as pos­si­ble. If a respec­ti­ve decla­ra­ti­on of con­sent was reques­ted, pro­ces­sing shall occur exclu­si­ve­ly on the basis of Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. a GDPR; the given con­sent may be revo­ked at any time.

For fur­ther infor­ma­ti­on and the per­ti­nent data pro­tec­tion regu­la­ti­ons, plea­se con­sult the Data Pri­va­cy Poli­ci­es of Goog­le at: https://policies.google.com/technologies/ads?hl=en.

For­ma­ti­on of Tar­get Groups with Cus­to­mer Reconciliation

For the for­ma­ti­on of tar­get groups, we use, among other things, the Goog­le Remar­ke­ting cus­to­mer recon­ci­lia­ti­on fea­ture. To achie­ve this, we trans­fer cer­tain cus­to­mer data (e.g. email addres­ses) from our cus­to­mer lists to Goog­le. If the respec­ti­ve cus­to­mers are Goog­le users and are log­ged into their Goog­le accounts, matching adver­ti­sing messages wit­hin the Goog­le net­work (e.g. You­Tube, Gmail or in a search engi­ne) are dis­play­ed for them to view.

Goog­le Conversion-Tracking

This web­site uses Goog­le Con­ver­si­on Tracking. The pro­vi­der of this ser­vice is Goog­le Ire­land Limi­ted (“Goog­le”), Gor­don House, Bar­row Street, Dub­lin 4, Ireland.

With the assi­s­tance of Goog­le Con­ver­si­on Tracking we are in a posi­ti­on to reco­gni­ze whe­ther the user has com­ple­ted cer­tain actions. For instance, we can ana­ly­ze the how fre­quent­ly which but­tons on our web­site have been cli­cked and which pro­ducts are review­ed or purcha­sed with par­ti­cu­lar fre­quen­cy. The pur­po­se of this infor­ma­ti­on is to com­pi­le con­ver­si­on sta­tis­tics. We learn how many users have cli­cked on our ads and which actions they have com­ple­ted. We do not recei­ve any infor­ma­ti­on that would allow us to per­so­nal­ly iden­ti­fy the users. Goog­le as such uses coo­kies or com­pa­ra­ble reco­gni­ti­on tech­no­lo­gies for iden­ti­fi­ca­ti­on purposes.

We use Goog­le Con­ver­si­on Tracking on the basis of Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. et seq. GDPR. The ope­ra­tor of the web­site has a legi­ti­ma­te inte­rest in the ana­ly­sis of the user pat­terns with the aim of opti­mi­zing both, the operator’s web pre­sen­ta­ti­on and adver­ti­sing. If a respec­ti­ve decla­ra­ti­on of con­sent was reques­ted (e.g. con­cer­ning the sto­rage of coo­kies), pro­ces­sing shall occur exclu­si­ve­ly on the basis of Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. a GDPR; the given con­sent may be revo­ked at any time.

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 or com­pa­ra­ble tech­no­lo­gies for reco­gni­ti­on (e.g. device fin­ger­prin­ting). In this way You­Tube will be able to obtain infor­ma­ti­on about this 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.

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, the pro­ces­sing takes place exclu­si­ve­ly on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR; the agree­ment can be revo­ked at any time.

To ensu­re that fonts used on this web­site are uni­form, this web­site uses so-cal­led Web Fonts pro­vi­ded by Goog­le. When you access a page on our web­site, your brow­ser will load the requi­red web fonts into your brow­ser cache to cor­rect­ly dis­play text and fonts.

To do this, the brow­ser you use will have to estab­lish a con­nec­tion with Google’s ser­vers. As a result, Goog­le will learn that your IP address was used to access this web­site. The use of Goog­le Web Fonts is based on Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. f GDPR. The web­site ope­ra­tor has a legi­ti­ma­te inte­rest in a uni­form pre­sen­ta­ti­on of the font on the operator’s web­site. If a respec­ti­ve decla­ra­ti­on of con­sent has been obtai­ned (e.g. con­sent to the archi­ving of coo­kies), the data will be pro­ces­sed exclu­si­ve­ly on the basis of Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. a GDPR. Any such con­sent may be revo­ked at any time.

If your brow­ser should not sup­port Web Fonts, a stan­dard font instal­led on your com­pu­ter will be used.

This web­site uses the map­ping ser­vice Goog­le Maps. The pro­vi­der is Goog­le Ire­land Limi­ted (“Goog­le”), Gor­don House, Bar­row Street, Dub­lin 4, Ireland.

To enab­le the use of the Goog­le Maps fea­tures, your IP address must be stored. As a rule, this infor­ma­ti­on is trans­fer­red to one of Google’s ser­vers in the United Sta­tes, whe­re it is archi­ved. The ope­ra­tor of this web­site has no con­trol over the data transfer.

We use Goog­le Maps to pre­sent our online con­tent in an appe­aling man­ner and to make the loca­ti­ons dis­c­lo­sed on our web­site easy to find. This con­sti­tu­tes a legi­ti­ma­te inte­rest as defi­ned in Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. f GDPR. If a respec­ti­ve decla­ra­ti­on of con­sent has been obtai­ned, the data shall be pro­ces­sed exclu­si­ve­ly on the basis of Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. a GDPR. This decla­ra­ti­on of con­sent may be revo­ked at any time.

Data trans­mis­si­on to the US is based on the Stan­dard Con­trac­tu­al Clau­ses (SCC) of the Euro­pean Com­mis­si­on. Details can be found here: https://privacy.google.com/businesses/gdprcontrollerterms/ and https://privacy.google.com/businesses/gdprcontrollerterms/sccs/.

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 ana­ly­zes the beha­vi­or 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.

Data are stored and ana­ly­zed on the basis of Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. f GDPR. The web­site ope­ra­tor has a legi­ti­ma­te inte­rest in the pro­tec­tion of the operator’s web­sites against abu­si­ve auto­ma­ted spy­ing and against SPAM. If a respec­ti­ve decla­ra­ti­on of con­sent has been obtai­ned, the data will be pro­ces­sed exclu­si­ve­ly on the basis of Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. a DGDPR. Any such con­sent may be revo­ked at any time.

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 GDPR) 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.
