Privacy Statement As at October 2019

We take the protection of your personal data very seriously. It goes without saying, for instance, that we will always treat your personal data in accordance with the relevant data protection regulations. We have appointed a professional and reliable external data protection officer. The external data protection management is provided by UIMC Dr. Voßbein GmbH & Co KG.

We would like to inform you below of how personal data are processed.

Collection and processing of personal data

You can in principle access our online presence without disclosing your identity. Should we ask for personal data (such as your name, address or email address) while you are on the website, e.g. for contact forms or when logging in/registering, this is done on a voluntary basis. We use this information for our own business purposes (such as delivering the materials/information requested).

If you have questions of any kind, you can contact us using a form provided for that purpose on the website. We need the data marked as mandatory in order to assign and answer the enquiry. Other details can be provided voluntarily. The data you provide for the purposes of contacting us will be processed in accordance with Art. 6 (1) Sentence 1 (a) GDPR on the basis of your freely given consent.

Once granted, you can withdraw your consent at any time with effect for the future without stating the grounds.

Cookies

This site uses what are known as cookies. Cookies are text files that are stored on your computer. They enable your use of the website to be analysed and you to be recognised automatically the next time you visit. You can prevent the installation of cookies by making the appropriate settings in your browser. This may result in you not being able to make full use of all the functionality of the site.

Forwarding of data

As a matter of principle, your personal data will not be forwarded to third parties for commercial or non-commercial purposes without your express consent. We will only forward your personal data to third parties if this is allowed by law [e.g. on the basis of Article 6 GDPR] and/or is required. Sometimes we use service providers to process data in accordance with legal requirements; the website is hosted by the advertising agency netzpepper, for instance. Full responsibility for the data processing remains with us, however.

Liability for own content

The content of these pages was created with the greatest possible care. Nevertheless, we cannot offer any warranty that the content is correct, complete and up-to-date. As a service provider, we are responsible for our own content on these pages in accordance with general laws.

Liability for links (content of third-party providers)

This content of our own must be distinguished from cross-references (links) to content provided by other providers. We have no influence on their content; the provider or operator of the linked pages is responsible for the content of these pages.

Rights of data subjects

We hereby inform you that according to Article 15 et seq. GDPR and under the conditions defined there you have the right to be informed by us of the personal data concerning you, the right to have such data rectified or erased, the right to restrict or object to their processing and the right to data portability. According to Article 77 GDPR you also have the right to lodge a complaint with a data protection supervisory authority if you believe that the processing of the personal data concerning you infringes this Regulation. If the processing is based on Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR or Art. 9 (2) (a) GDPR (consent), you also have the right to withdraw consent at any time without prejudice to the lawfulness of the processing performed on the basis of consent until withdrawal.

YouTube

Our site uses the provider YouTube LLC, 901 Cherry Avenue, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA, represented by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA, for the integration of videos. When you click on the video, your IP address will be sent to YouTube and YouTube will know that you have seen the video. If you are logged in to YouTube, this information will also be assigned to your user account (you can prevent this by logging out of YouTube before opening the video).

We do not know if or how your data will be collected and used by YouTube, nor do we have any influence on this. For further information, please refer to the data privacy policy of YouTube at www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/.

Google Analytics

This website uses “Google Analytics”, a service offered by Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA) for analysing use of the website by users. The service uses “cookies” – text files which are stored on your terminal device. The information collected by the cookies is normally sent to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to prepare reports on website activities for the website operators and to provide additional services connected with use of the website and the internet. Google may also transmit this information to third parties if this is required by law or if third parties process the data on behalf of Google. Under no circumstances will Google associate your IP address with other Google data.

IP anonymisation is used on this website. The IP address of users will be shortened within the Member States of the EU and the European Economic Area. This shortening means that your IP address cannot be traced back to you. Under the terms of the commissioned data processing agreement that the website operators have concluded with Google Inc., Google will use the collected information to create an analysis of website usage and activity and to provide services associated with use of the internet.

You can install a browser plug-in to prevent the information collected by cookies (including your IP address) from being transmitted to Google Inc. and used by Google Inc. The following link takes you to the corresponding plug-in: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.

You can find further information about the use of data by Google Inc. at: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=de.

Google reCAPTCHA

We use Google reCAPTCHA from Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheater Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA) to prevent spam. The legal basis for use is Article 6 (1) f (lawfulness of processing), as there is a legitimate interest in protecting this website from bots and spam. reCAPTCHA is a free service that protects web pages against spam and abuse. It uses advanced risk analysis techniques to keep people and bots apart.

With the new API, a significant number of your valid human users will pass the reCAPTCHA challenge without having to solve a CAPTCHA. We use reCAPTCHA to secure forms. By using reCAPTCHA, data will be transmitted to Google using Google to determine whether the visitor is human or spam.

What information Google collects and how it uses this information can be found at https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en-AT. You can read Google's Terms of Service and Products Terms at https://policies.google.com/terms?hl=en-AT.

Google Maps

To facilitate your journey here, we use Google Maps to display maps and generate directions. Google Maps is operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. These pages are identified accordingly. By using these services, you declare that you agree to the collection, processing and use by Google of both the data collect-ed and the data entered by you. The terms of service for Google Maps can be found at https://www.google.com/intl/de-DE_US/help/terms_maps.html.

Use of social media icons

We have installed social media icons on our website. These allow you to access the YouTube and LinkedIn social media platforms with a single click. When you visit our website, normally no personal data will be forwarded to the providers. You can recognise the providers of the platforms by their logo. We enable you to get direct access to posts by Lenord + Bauer on their websites by clicking on the icon.
We do not have any influence on the data collected or the data processing operations, nor are we aware of the full extent of the collection of data, the purposes of storage or the storage periods. We do not have any information on erasure either.
We enable you to receive information from Lenord + Bauer on the relevant platform by clicking on the icon. The legal basis for this use is point (f) of Art. 6(1) GDPR.
The addresses of the social media platforms, where you can read their data protection policies, are as follows:

Analysis by wiredminds

Our website uses a counting pixel technology provided by wiredminds GmbH (www.wiredminds.de) to analyze visitor behavior. If necessary, data is collected, processed and stored, from which user profiles are created under a pseudonym. Wherever possible and reasonable, these usage profiles are completely anonymized. Cookies can be used for this purpose. Cookies are small text files that are stored in the visitor's Internet browser and serve to recognize the Internet browser. The collected data, which may also contain personal data, will be transmitted to wiredminds or collected directly by wiredminds. wiredminds may
use information that is left by visiting the websites to create anonymized usage profiles. The data obtained without explicit consent of the affected person will not be used to personally identify the visitor of this website and will not be merged with personal data of the bearer of the pseudonym. Whenever IP addresses are recorded, their immediate anonymization takes place by deleting the last number block.

Amendments to these data protection regulations

We reserve the right to modify this privacy statement from time to time so that it always conforms to current legal requirements or in order to implement changes to our services in the privacy statement, e.g. when introducing new services.
