Google Analytics uses cookies that enable your use of our website to be analysed. Information collected by the cookies about your use of this website is transmitted to a Google server and stored there.

We use the “anonymizeIP” function (known as IP masking): The activation of IP anonymisation on this website means that your IP address will be shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases is a full IP address transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there.

  • Information about the end device, operating system and browser used;
  • geographical information, to a maximum of city level;

  • other interactions (clicks) on the website, such as search terms entered, files downloaded, videos viewed, items ordered.


The data processed with etracker is processed and stored by etracker on our behalf exclusively in Germany and is therefore subject to the strict German and European data protection laws and standards. etracker has been independently audited in this respect and awarded the “ePrivacyseal” data protection seal of approval.

The data processing is carried out on the legal basis of Article 6(1)(f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest is the optimisation of our online services and our web presence.

In this context, we only use simple links on our website for the integrated icons of the social media providers, and those icons do not establish a connection to the social media platform when loading the website.

If you are logged into your personal user account of the specific network while visiting such a social media platform, the social media platform can assign the visit to your account. If you do not want them to make this assignment, you need to log out of your account before visiting our company website and possibly delete the cookies.

5. Other services integrated on the website

We include videos on our websites with information about the ordering process, our products, the configuration of our products and for similar purposes. These videos are stored on our own server and can be played directly from our website.

In order to make access to the videos technically possible and, if necessary, to be able to track security-related events, the relevant access data is automatically saved each time the videos are accessed.

Depending on the browser used, the following data is collected:

IP address of the requesting computer; date and time of the request; access method/function desired by the requesting computer; input values transmitted by the requesting computer (file name, etc.); access status of the web server (file transferred, file not found, command not executed); name of the requested file; URL from which the file was requested and/or the desired function was initiated.

The data processing is carried out on the legal basis of Article 6(1)(f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest is the presentation of our products and as a result the simplification of orders via our website.

The above data will be processed and, in particular, stored for as long as is necessary to achieve the purpose specified above. The data is usually stored until the end of your visit to our website or online shop. Depending on the type of browser you are using, there may be default settings activated that restore pages that you have previously visited and this allows data to be stored for longer.

 

6. Recipients of personal data

We share your personal information with the following recipients:

6.1 We use contract processors for processing personal data for the purposes indicated. These process the personal data for us on our behalf. We retain control over the personal data in question and, as the controller, remain responsible for the data processing.

6.2 To process payments for orders, we transmit payment details to banks or payment service providers if required by the payment method.

6.3 If necessary, we transmit contact information to logistics companies in order to implement the transport of goods.

6.4 In individual cases, we may share the personal data required for the order with our international representatives (other companies within the corporate group) at your request. If the European Commission has not issued a decision on adequacy for the respective third country outside the European Economic Area, this is done on the basis of Article 49(1)(b) GDPR.

6.5 We transmit personal data in individual cases to courts, law enforcement agencies, supervisory authorities, other authorities, tax consultants and lawyers, provided this is legally permissible or required.

 

7. Automated decisions

We will not use your personal data to make automated decisions (including profiling) about you that will have a legal effect on you or a similar significant impairment for you.

 

8.    Your rights

8.1 According to the legal regulations you have the following rights:

  • The right to information about your personal data: this enables you to obtain a copy of the personal data we process about you and to verify whether we process it lawfully;
  • The right to rectify the personal data that we process from you: this allows you to have incomplete or inaccurate data corrected;
  • The right to erase your personal data: this allows you to request that we delete or remove your personal data if we have no further reason to continue processing it;
  • The right to object to the processing of your personal data if processing is based on our legitimate interests (or those of a third party) and if your particular situation gives you grounds to object to the processing on this basis. In particular, you have a right to object if we process your data for direct marketing purposes;
  • The right to restrict the processing of your personal data: this allows you to request the suspension of processing your personal data, for example if you wish us to establish its accuracy or processing basis; and
  • Under certain circumstances, the right to have your personal data transmitted to another controller.


8.2 If you have given us your consent for the processing of your personal data, you have the right to revoke your consent at any time, without this affecting the lawfulness of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent up to the time of revocation.

8.3 You have the right to complain to a competent supervisory authority at any time.
