2. 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:

Hotset GmbH
Hueck­straße 16
58511 Lü­den­scheid

Phone: +49 2351 4302–0
E‑mail: info@hotset.com

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 and other non-EU countries

Among oth­er things, tools of com­pa­nies domi­ciled in the Unit­ed States or oth­er from a da­ta pro­tec­tion per­spec­tive non-se­cure non-EU coun­tries, are in­te­grat­ed in­to our web­site. If these tools are ac­tive, your per­son­al da­ta may po­ten­tial­ly be trans­ferred to these non-EU coun­tries and may be processed there. We must point out that in these coun­tries, a da­ta pro­tec­tion lev­el that is com­pa­ra­ble to that in the EU can­not be guar­an­teed. For in­stance, U.S. en­ter­pris­es are un­der a man­date to re­lease per­son­al da­ta to the se­cu­ri­ty agen­cies and you as the da­ta sub­ject do not have any lit­i­ga­tion op­tions to de­fend your­self in court. Hence, it can­not be ruled out that U.S. agen­cies (e.g., the Se­cret Ser­vice) may process, an­a­lyze, and per­ma­nent­ly archive your per­son­al da­ta for sur­veil­lance pur­pos­es. We have no con­trol 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(1)(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(1) GDPR).

IF YOUR PERSONAL DATA IS BEING PROCESSED IN ORDER TO ENGAGE IN DIRECT ADVERTISING, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO OBJECT TO THE PROCESSING OF YOUR AFFECTED PERSONAL DATA FOR THE PURPOSES OF SUCH ADVERTISING AT ANY TIME. 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(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(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.

3. 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(1)(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(1)(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 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/

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:

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(1)(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(1)(f) GDPR) or on your agree­ment (Art. 6(1)(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(1)(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(1)(f) GDPR) or on the ba­sis of your con­sent (Art. 6(1)(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).

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. If the rel­e­vant con­sent has been re­quest­ed, the pro­cess­ing is car­ried out ex­clu­sive­ly on the ba­sis of Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR; the con­sent can be re­voked at any time.

Google Analytics

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(1)(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(1)(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/.

The web­site op­er­a­tor us­es Google Ads. Google Ads is an on­line pro­mo­tion­al pro­gram of Google Ire­land Lim­it­ed (“Google”), Gor­don House, Bar­row Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

Google Ads en­ables us to dis­play ads in the Google search en­gine or on third-par­ty web­sites, if the user en­ters cer­tain search terms in­to Google (key­word tar­get­ing). It is al­so pos­si­ble to place tar­get­ed ads based on the user da­ta Google has in its pos­ses­sion (e.g., lo­ca­tion da­ta and in­ter­ests; tar­get group tar­get­ing). As the web­site op­er­a­tor, we can an­a­lyze these da­ta quan­ti­ta­tive­ly, for in­stance by an­a­lyz­ing which search terms re­sult­ed in the dis­play of our ads and how many ads led to re­spec­tive clicks.

The use of Google Ads is based on Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR. The web­site op­er­a­tor has a le­git­i­mate in­ter­est in mar­ket­ing the operator’s ser­vices and prod­ucts as ef­fec­tive­ly as possible.

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).

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.

Facebook Pixel

To mea­sure con­ver­sion rates, this web­site us­es the vis­i­tor ac­tiv­i­ty pix­el of Face­book. The provider of this ser­vice is Face­book Ire­land Lim­it­ed, 4 Grand Canal Square, Dublin 2, Ire­land. Ac­cord­ing to Facebook’s state­ment the col­lect­ed da­ta will be trans­ferred to the USA and oth­er third-par­ty coun­tries too.

This tool al­lows the track­ing of page vis­i­tors af­ter they have been linked to the web­site of the provider af­ter click­ing on a Face­book ad. This makes it pos­si­ble to an­a­lyze the ef­fec­tive­ness of Face­book ads for sta­tis­ti­cal and mar­ket re­search pur­pos­es and to op­ti­mize fu­ture ad­ver­tis­ing campaigns.

For us as the op­er­a­tors of this web­site, the col­lect­ed da­ta is anony­mous. We are not in a po­si­tion to ar­rive at any con­clu­sions as to the iden­ti­ty of users. How­ev­er, Face­book archives the in­for­ma­tion and process­es it, so that it is pos­si­ble to make a con­nec­tion to the re­spec­tive user pro­file and Face­book is in a po­si­tion to use the da­ta for its own pro­mo­tion­al pur­pos­es in com­pli­ance with the Face­book Da­ta Us­age Pol­i­cy. This en­ables Face­book to dis­play ads on Face­book pages as well as in lo­ca­tions out­side of Face­book. We as the op­er­a­tor of this web­site have no con­trol over the use of such data.

The use of Face­book Pix­el is based on Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR. The op­er­a­tor of the web­site has a le­git­i­mate in­ter­est in ef­fec­tive ad­ver­tis­ing cam­paigns, which al­so in­clude so­cial me­dia. 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(1)(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://www.facebook.com/legal/EU_data_transfer_addendum und https://de-de.facebook.com/help/566994660333381.

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(1)(f) GDPR.

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(1)(b) GDPR (Gen­er­al Con­tract Ne­go­ti­a­tions) and – pro­vid­ed you have giv­en us your con­sent – Art. 6(1)(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(1)(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(1)(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.

2. 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.

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 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.

3. 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.

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.

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. If the rel­e­vant con­sent has been re­quest­ed, the pro­cess­ing is car­ried out ex­clu­sive­ly on the ba­sis of Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR; the con­sent can be re­voked at any time.

Google Analytics

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.

Google Ads en­ables us to dis­play ads in the Google search en­gine or on third-par­ty web­sites, if the user en­ters cer­tain search terms in­to Google (key­word tar­get­ing). It is al­so pos­si­ble to place tar­get­ed ads based on the user da­ta Google has in its pos­ses­sion (e.g., lo­ca­tion da­ta and in­ter­ests; tar­get group tar­get­ing). As the web­site op­er­a­tor, we can an­a­lyze these da­ta quan­ti­ta­tive­ly, for in­stance by an­a­lyz­ing which search terms re­sult­ed in the dis­play of our ads and how many ads led to re­spec­tive clicks.

The use of Google Ads is based on  Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. et seq. GDPR. The web­site op­er­a­tor has a le­git­i­mate in­ter­est in mar­ket­ing the operator’s ser­vices and prod­ucts as ef­fec­tive­ly as possible.

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.

Ac­cord­ing to Facebook’s state­ment the col­lect­ed da­ta will be trans­ferred to the USA and oth­er third-par­ty coun­tries too.

This tool al­lows the track­ing of page vis­i­tors af­ter they have been linked to the web­site of the provider af­ter click­ing on a Face­book ad. This makes it pos­si­ble to an­a­lyze the ef­fec­tive­ness of Face­book ads for sta­tis­ti­cal and mar­ket re­search pur­pos­es and to op­ti­mize fu­ture ad­ver­tis­ing campaigns.

For us as the op­er­a­tors of this web­site, the col­lect­ed da­ta is anony­mous. We are not in a po­si­tion to ar­rive at any con­clu­sions as to the iden­ti­ty of users. How­ev­er, Face­book archives the in­for­ma­tion and process­es it, so that it is pos­si­ble to make a con­nec­tion to the re­spec­tive user pro­file and Face­book is in a po­si­tion to use the da­ta for its own pro­mo­tion­al pur­pos­es in com­pli­ance with the Face­book Da­ta Us­age Pol­i­cy. This en­ables Face­book to dis­play ads on Face­book pages as well as in lo­ca­tions out­side of Face­book. We as the op­er­a­tor of this web­site have no con­trol over the use of such data.

The use of Face­book Pix­el is based on Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. f GDPR.

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.

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.
