Your rights

You have the right to request information, correction, deletion or limitation of your personal data from us in accordance with the statutory provisions. We also provide your data in a structured, common and machine-readable format. If we use your data on the basis of your consent, you can revoke your consent at any time and request the deletion of this data. After revocation we will no longer use your data for this purpose. Should we have a legitimate interest in processing your data, you may object to this contact information. Irrespective of this, you can always contact the relevant supervisory authorities.

Deleting data

If your data is no longer required for the purposes mentioned or if its storage is inadmissible for other legal reasons, we will delete it. Excluded from this is only lawfully collected data which we are obliged to store for legal reasons. Please note that with each deletion, the data is initially only blocked and is then finally deleted with a time delay in order to prevent accidental deletions or possible deliberate damage. For technical reasons, data may be duplicated in backup files and mirrors of services. Such copies may also be deleted with a technical delay.

Provision of our website

You can visit our web pages without disclosing any personal information. Each time a web page is accessed, the web server only automatically stores the IP address, date and time of the request, time zone difference to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT), content of the request (specific page), access status/HTTP status code, data volume transmitted in each case, the website from which the request comes, browser, operating system and its interface as well as the language and version of the browser software. This data will never be saved specifically to your person. This access data are evaluated exclusively in order to ensure the site functions properly and to improve our services. If the IP address is to be regarded as personal, it will be deleted at the latest after 90 days, if there are no other compelling reasons.

Contact Form

When you contact us via our contact forms on the website, we process the data you provide in order to respond to your request, e.g. for requests for information material, RMA forms, training registration, customer satisfaction surveys or service requests. Longer-term storage only takes place as far as your inquiry requires it.

Right to Object

If your personal data is processed on the basis of legitimate interests pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 (f) of the DSGVO, you have the right to object to the processing of your personal data, provided that there are reasons for this arising from your particular situation. We will then no longer process the personal data in the event of a justified objection.

Newsletter

You can subscribe to our newsletter on our website to receive information about our products, services and events. We use your given data in the context of your given consent for the forwarding of our newsletter. We carry out the registration via a double opt-in procedure. You will receive a confirmation e-mail after entering your data on our website. Only by clicking in the confirmation e-mail is the registration completed.

The newsletters contain a so-called "web beacon" or "tracking pixel" for the evaluation described above. During the download, technical information such as your browser and operating system as well as your IP address and the time of the download are collected. This information is used for technical improvement of the service, as technical data or target group data can be analyzed according to their reading behavior, their download locations (identifiable through IP addresses) or download times. For this we use the services of "Acyba" (https://www.acyba.com).

Statistical data collection also includes an analysis of when the newsletters are opened and which links are clicked upon. For technical reasons, this information can be assigned to individual newsletter recipients. However, we do not strive to observe individual users. Data analysis is used to recognize patterns in the reading behavior of users and adapt content accordingly or send different content according to our users' interests. For information about the purpose and scope of data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Google, as well as your rights and settings options for the protection of your privacy, please refer to the privacy policy: https://www.acyba.com/privacy-policy.html

Google Analytics

We use the tool Google Analytics from Google (Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA).

Google Analytics uses text files stored on your device (so-called "cookies") to obtain information about your website usage. Google uses this information on our behalf to provide us with analyses of website usage, reports on website activity and other services. The data collected about your website use by means of the cookie is usually transmitted to and stored by Google on its server in the USA for analysis. It will not be merged with any other data that may have been stored about you at Google.

We also use the masking function "anonymizeIP". Before your IP address is transmitted to the Google servers in the USA, it will be shortened within the EU. The unabridged IP address is only transmitted in rare cases and is then shortened on the servers in the USA. You can prevent this processing by taking the following measures:
