3 Data collection on our website

Web hosting

We have stored the content of our website with a web hoster, from where the page is loaded and displayed in your browser.
Our web host is:
MITTWALD-AS Mittwald CM Service GmbH and Co KG.

 

Data processing

Server log files

The provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:

•  browser type and browser version
•  Operating system used
•  referrer URL
•  Host name of the accessing computer
•  Time of the server request
•  IP address

This data is not merged with other data sources.

The collection of this data is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. We have a legitimate interest in the technically error-free presentation and optimisation of our website - for this purpose, the server log files must be collected. At this point, it is also not possible to restrict processing for technical reasons for the future, as we would otherwise not be able to offer the service.


Cookies


Some of our internet pages use so-called cookies. Cookies serve to make our offer more user-friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small data records that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser.

Most of the cookies we use are so-called "session cookies". They are automatically deleted at the end of your visit, e.g. other cookies remain stored on your end device until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognise your browser on your next visit.

We use a cookie consent banner to manage consent. You have the option to change the privacy settings you have already made at any time.

Cookies that are required to carry out the electronic communication process or to provide certain functions that you have requested (e.g. shopping basket function) are stored on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f DSGVO as well as §25 Para. 2 Point 2 TTDSG. The website operator has a legitimate interest in storing cookies for the technically error-free and optimised provision of its services. Insofar as other cookies (e.g. cookies to analyse your surfing behaviour) are stored, this is done on the basis of your consent.

 

Contact form

If you send us enquiries via the contact form, your details from the enquiry form, including the contact details you provide there, will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the enquiry and in the event of follow-up enquiries. We do not pass on this data without your consent, which we request separately from you.

The processing of the data entered in the contact form is based on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO). If your request is related to the fulfilment of a contract or is necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, the legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO. You can revoke this consent at any time. An informal communication by e-mail to us is sufficient for this purpose. The legality of the data processing operations carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

The data you entered in the contact form will remain with us until you request us to delete it, revoke your consent to store it or the purpose for storing the data no longer applies (e.g. after we have completed processing your request). Mandatory legal provisions - in particular retention periods - remain unaffected.

 

Enquiry by e-mail, telephone or fax

If you contact us by e-mail, telephone or fax, your enquiry including all personal data resulting from it (name, enquiry) will be stored and processed by us for the purpose of processing your request. We do not pass on this data without your consent.

The processing of this data is based on Art. 6 (1) lit. b DSGVO if your request is related to the performance of a contract or is necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures. In all other cases, the processing of the request is based on the respective legal basis related to the request. 

The data you send to us via contact requests will remain with us until you request us to delete it, revoke your consent to store it or the purpose for storing the data no longer applies (e.g. after we have completed processing your request). At the earliest, however, upon expiry of the legally applicable retention obligations.

 

Registration on this website

You can register on our website in order to use additional functions on the site. We use the data you enter for this purpose only for the purpose of using the particular offer or service for which you have registered. The mandatory information requested during registration must be provided in full. Otherwise we will reject the registration.

In the event of important changes, for example in the scope of the offer or in the event of technically necessary changes, we will use the e-mail address provided during registration to inform you in this way.

The processing of the data entered during registration is based on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO) or pre-contractual measures (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO). You can revoke your consent at any time. For this purpose, an informal communication by e-mail to us is sufficient. The legality of the data processing already carried out remains unaffected by the revocation.

The data collected during registration will be stored by us for as long as you are registered on our website and will then be deleted. Legal retention periods remain unaffected.

 

Analysis tool and advertising

We use a number of services on our website to help us better understand how the site is used. By using so-called analytic tool providers, analyses can be made of user behaviour on the website and, for example, tests can be carried out to see which offers on the website are better received. This enables us to continuously improve our web presence.

 

Wireminds

Our website uses the counting pixel technology of WiredMinds GmbH (www.wiredminds.de) to analyse visitor behaviour. This involves processing a visitor's IP address as well as dial-in and geolocation data. The data collected in this way is queried by WiredMinds in various databases and the information generated is linked accordingly. As a result, company name, postcode, city and industry & company size are generated and made available to us, while private IP addresses are filtered out and not processed further. Furthermore, the corresponding decision-maker information is added. In addition, all persons who can be found on Xing or LinkedIn for this company are displayed with a link. 

IP addresses of natural persons are excluded from further use (whitelist procedure). When processing the data, it is our particular interest to safeguard the data protection rights of natural persons. Our interest is based on Art. 6 (1) lit. (f) DSGVO. WiredMinds GmbH uses this information to create anonymous usage profiles related to the visiting behaviour on our website. The data obtained in this way is not used to personally identify visitors to our website.

We store this data until you request its deletion or object to its processing, insofar as this does not conflict with any interests worthy of protection on our part.

Matomo (formerly: PIWIK)

We use Matomo (formerly: "PIWIK") on our website. This is an open source software that allows us to analyse the use of our website. Your IP address, the website(s) you visit on our website, the website from which you linked to our website (referrer URL), the time you spend on our website and the frequency with which you visit one of our websites are processed.

To collect this data, Matomo stores cookies on your end device via your internet browser. 

The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) DSGVO. 

We use Matomo with the anonymisation function "Automatically Anonymize Visitor IPs". This anonymisation function shortens your IP address by two bytes so that it is impossible to assign it to you or to the internet connection you are using.

If you do not agree to this processing, you have the option of selecting the appropriate data protection settings displayed in the Consent Banner from the outset. If you have consented to this processing, you can revoke your consent at any time in the "Cookies" section of this privacy policy. The data processing that has taken place up to that point remains excluded from the revocation. You can also use the settings of your browser to delete existing cookies. 

 

Newsletter

Newsletter data

If you would like to receive the newsletter offered on the website, we require an e-mail address from you as well as information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the specified e-mail address and that you agree to receive the newsletter. For this purpose, we use the double opt-in procedure and send you an e-mail in which you must separately confirm your registration to receive the newsletter. No further data is collected or only on a voluntary basis. We use this data exclusively for sending the requested information and do not pass it on to third parties.

The data entered in the newsletter registration form is processed exclusively on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO). You can revoke your consent to the storage of the data, the e-mail address and their use for sending the newsletter at any time, for example via the "unsubscribe" link in the newsletter. The legality of the data processing operations already carried out remains unaffected by the revocation.

The data you provide for the purpose of receiving the newsletter will be stored by us until you unsubscribe from the newsletter and will be deleted after you unsubscribe from the newsletter. Data that has been stored by us for other purposes remains unaffected by this.


Rapidmail

This website uses Rapidmail to send newsletters. The provider is Rapidmail GmbH, Augustinerplatz 2, 79098 Freiburg i.Br., Germany.

Rapidmail is a service with which, among other things, the sending of newsletters can be organised and analysed. The data you enter for the purpose of receiving newsletters is stored on Rapidmail's servers in Germany.

If you do not want Rapidmail to analyse your data, you must unsubscribe from the newsletter. For this purpose, we provide a corresponding link in every newsletter message. Furthermore, you can also unsubscribe from the newsletter by sending us an informal message (e.g. by email, contact form or telephone).


Data analysis by Rapidmail

For the purpose of analysis, the emails sent with Rapidmail contain a so-called "tracking pixel" that connects to the Rapidmail servers when the email is opened. In this way, it can be determined whether a newsletter message has been opened.

Furthermore, with the help of Rapidmail we can determine whether and which links in the newsletter message are clicked on. All links in the e-mail are so-called tracking links, with which your clicks can be counted.

You can find out more about Rapidmail's analysis functions by clicking on the following link: de.rapidmail.wiki/kategorien/statistiken/.

 

Legal basis 

The data processing is based on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO). You can revoke this consent at any time. The legality of the data processing operations already carried out remains unaffected by the revocation.

 

Storage period

The data you have provided us with for the purpose of receiving the newsletter will be stored by us until you unsubscribe from the newsletter and will be deleted from our servers as well as from the servers of Rapidmail after you have unsubscribed from the newsletter. Data that has been stored by us for other purposes remains unaffected by this.

For more details, please refer to Rapidmail's data security information at: www.rapidmail.de/datensicherheit. 


Plugins and tools

Linking social media via graphic or text link

We also promote presences on the social networks listed below on our website. The integration takes place via a linked graphic of the respective network. The use of this linked graphic prevents a connection from being automatically established to the respective server of the social network when a website with a social media advertisement is called up in order to display a graphic of the respective network itself. Only by clicking on the corresponding graphic is the user redirected to the service of the respective social network.

After the user has been forwarded, information about the user is collected by the respective network. It cannot be ruled out that the data collected in this way will be processed in the USA.

This is initially data such as IP address, date, time and page visited. You can find out what data is processed and how in the respective data protection statement of the corresponding provider, which we have linked for you below. If the user is logged into his or her user account of the respective network during this time, the network operator may be able to assign the collected information of the user's specific visit to the user's personal account. If the user interacts via a "Share" button of the respective network, this information can be stored in the user's personal user account and possibly published. If the user wants to prevent the collected information from being directly assigned to his/her user account, he/she must log out before clicking on the graphic. In addition, it is possible to configure the respective user account accordingly.

The legal basis for processing of your data by the respective providers of the social networks listed below is your consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO by implied conduct, provided that you access the respective platform via a link or by entering it in the browser.

As a legal basis for the transfer of your personal data to a third country such as the USA, for which no adequacy decision exists, we refer to the information provided by the platforms.
The following social networks are integrated into our site by linking:

 

Facebook

Meta Platforms Ireland Ltd, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2 Ireland

To advertise our products and services and to communicate with interested parties or customers, we operate a company presence on the Facebook platform.

On this social media platform, we are jointly responsible with Meta Platforms Ireland Ltd, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2 Ireland.

Facebook's data protection officer can be reached via a contact form:

www.facebook.com/help/contact/540977946302970

We have regulated the joint responsibility in an agreement regarding the respective obligations within the meaning of the GDPR. This agreement, from which the mutual obligations arise, can be accessed at the following link:

www.facebook.com/legal/terms/page_controller_addendum

The legal basis for the processing of personal data that takes place as a result and is reproduced below is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. Our legitimate interest lies in the analysis, communication, sales and advertising of our products and services.

The legal basis may also be the user's consent pursuant to Art. 6 (1) a DSGVO vis-à-vis the platform operator. The user can revoke this consent for the future at any time by notifying the platform operator in accordance with Art. 7 (3) DSGVO.

When our online presence is called up on the Facebook platform, the user's data (e.g. personal information, IP address, etc.) is processed by Meta Platforms Ireland Ltd. as the operator of the platform in the EU.

This user data is used for statistical information about the use of our company presence on Facebook. Meta Platforms Ireland Ltd. uses this data for market research and advertising purposes and to create profiles of the users. On the basis of these profiles, Meta Platforms Ireland Ltd. is able, for example, to advertise users within and outside of Facebook according to their interests. If the user is logged into their account on Facebook at the time of the call, Meta Platforms Ireland Ltd. can also link the data with the respective user account.

If the user contacts us via Facebook, the personal data entered by the user on this occasion will be used to process the enquiry. The user's data will be deleted by us as soon as the user's enquiry has been conclusively answered and there are no legal obligations to retain data, e.g. for the subsequent processing of a contract, to the contrary.
Meta Platforms Ireland Ltd. may also use cookies to process the data.

If the user does not agree to this processing, it is possible to prevent the installation of cookies by setting the browser accordingly. Cookies that have already been stored can also be deleted at any time. The settings for this depend on the respective browser. In the case of Flash cookies, processing cannot be prevented via the settings of the browser, but by the corresponding setting of the Flash player. If the user prevents or restricts the installation of cookies, this may mean that not all functions of Facebook can be fully used.

For more details on the processing activities, how to prevent them and how to delete the data processed by Facebook, please refer to Facebook's data policy:

In order to display our location and provide directions, your user settings and data are processed. We cannot exclude the possibility that Google uses servers in the USA.

The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) DSGVO. The display of the map component will only be loaded after you have consented to the associated data processing by Google.

The connection to Google established in this way enables Google to determine the website from which your request was sent and the IP address to which the directions are to be transmitted.

If you do not agree to this processing, you have the option of preventing the installation of cookies by making the appropriate settings in your internet browser. Details on this can be found above under the item "Cookies".

In addition, the use of Google Maps and the information obtained via Google Maps is subject to the Google Terms of Use policies.google.com/terms and the Terms and Conditions for Google Maps www.google.com/intl/de_de/help/terms_maps.html.

for further information.


Integration of additional third-party services

We have integrated additional content on our website, through which resources from third-party providers are reloaded. This may include fonts, graphics or videos. When you access our pages, this content is downloaded from external servers. This results at least in the transmission of your IP address, without which the providers could not send their content to your browser. 

These integrations facilitate the construction and presentation of our online presence. In addition, many of these providers offer the resources free of charge. The economic operation of the site thus made possible constitutes our legitimate interest according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO, which provides our legal basis for these integrations. 

Below you will find a list of these integrated external resources:


Visable

For analysis and marketing purposes, Bedrunka+Hirth uses products and services that are provided by Visable GmbH (www.visable.com) in cooperation with the latter. For this purpose, counting pixel technology and cookies are used to collect, process and store data in order to create at least pseudonymised and, where possible and reasonable, completely anonymised user profiles. The collected data, which may initially still contain personal data, is transmitted to Visable or collected directly by Visable and used there to create the above-mentioned usage profiles. Visitors to this website are not personally identified and no other personal data is merged with the usage profiles. If IP addresses are identified as personal, they are deleted immediately. You can object to the processing described above at any time with effect for the future: Exclude from tracking (note: link sets a 1st-party cookie for an opt-out).

 

Polyfill

Polyfill is a service that accepts a request for a set of browser functions and returns only those functions that the requesting browser requires.

The service allows us to support older browsers in addition to current browser versions by replicating missing functions through Polyfill. 

Polyfill is a service provided by Financial Times Ltd, Bracken House, 1 Friday Street, London, EC4M 9BT. Hosting the service in the USA results in the transfer of personal data to a third country. 

The legal basis for this is the legitimate interest (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO) of us to present the service in such a way that it also presents the functions for older browsers.
You can find Polyfill's data protection declaration here: https://polyfill.io/v3/privacy-policy/.

 

Details of the information obligations pursuant to Art. 13, 14 DSGVO for online meetings, telephone conferences and online seminars via "Zoom

We would like to inform you below about the processing of personal data in connection with the use of "Zoom".

 

Purpose of the processing

We use the tool "Zoom" to conduct telephone conferences, online meetings, video conferences and/or online seminars (hereinafter: "online meetings"). "Zoom" is a service provided by Zoom Video Communications, Inc. which is based in the USA.

 

Person responsible

The person responsible for data processing directly related to the conduct of "Online Meetings" is Bedrunka+Hirth Gerätebau GmbH | Giessnaustr. 8 | D-78199 Bräunlingen | 0771/9201-70.

 

Notice:
Insofar as you call up the website of "Zoom", the provider of "Zoom" is responsible for data processing. However, calling up the website is only necessary to use "Zoom" in order to download the software for using "Zoom". You can also use "Zoom" if you enter the respective meeting ID and, if applicable, further access data for the meeting directly in the "Zoom" app. If you do not want to or cannot use the "Zoom" app, the basic functions can also be used via a browser version, which you can also find on the "Zoom" website.

 

What data is processed?

Various types of data are processed when using "Zoom". The scope of the data also depends on the data you provide before or during participation in an "online meeting". User details: first name, last name, telephone (optional), e-mail address, password (if "single sign-on" is not used), profile picture (optional), department (optional) Meeting metadata: Topic, description (optional), participant IP addresses, device/hardware information If recording (optional):MP4 file of all video, audio and presentation recordings, M4A file of all audio recordings, text file of online meeting chat. For dial-in with the telephone: information on the incoming and outgoing call number, country name, start and end time. If necessary, further connection data, such as the IP address of the device, can be stored. Text, audio and video data: You may have the opportunity to use the chat, question or survey functions in an "online meeting". In this respect, the text entries you make are processed in order to display them in the "online meeting" and, if necessary, to record them. In order to enable the display of video and the playback of audio, the data from the microphone of your terminal device and from any video camera of the terminal device are processed accordingly during the meeting. You can switch off or mute the camera or microphone yourself at any time via the "Zoom" applications. To participate in an "online meeting" or to enter the "meeting room", you must at least provide information about your name.

 

Scope of processing

We use "Zoom" to conduct "online meetings". If we want to record "online meetings", we will transparently inform you in advance and ask for consent where necessary. The fact of the recording will also be displayed to you in the "Zoom" app. If it is necessary for the purposes of recording the results of an online meeting, we will record the chat content. However, this will not usually be the case. In the case of online seminars, we may also process questions asked by online seminar participants for the purposes of recording and following up online seminars. If you are registered as a user with "Zoom", then reports of "online meetings" (meeting metadata, telephone dial-in data, questions and answers in online seminars, survey function in online seminars) may be stored for up to one month at "Zoom". The possibility of software-based "attention monitoring" ("attention tracking") in "online meeting" tools such as "Zoom" is deactivated. Automated decision-making within the meaning of Art. 22 DSGVO is not used.

 

Legal basis of data processing

Insofar as personal data of employees of Bedrunka+Hirth Gerätebau GmbH are processed, § 26 BDSG is the legal basis for data processing. If, in connection with the use of "Zoom", personal data is not required for the establishment, implementation or termination of the employment relationship, but is nevertheless an elementary component of the use of "Zoom", Article 6 (1) (f) DSGVO is the legal basis for data processing. In these cases, our interest lies in the effective implementation of "online meetings". Otherwise, the legal basis for data processing when conducting "online meetings" is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) DSGVO, insofar as the meetings are conducted within the framework of contractual relationships. If there is no contractual relationship, the legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO. Here, too, our interest is in the effective conduct of "online meetings". Recipients / passing on of data Personal data processed in connection with participation in "online meetings" will not be passed on to third parties as a matter of principle, unless they are specifically intended to be passed on. Please note that the content of "online meetings", as well as personal meetings, is often used to communicate information with customers, interested parties or third parties and is therefore intended to be passed on. Other recipients: The provider of "Zoom" necessarily receives knowledge of the above-mentioned data insofar as this is provided for in the context of our order processing agreement with "Zoom".

 

Data processing outside the European Union

"Zoom" is a service provided by a provider from the USA. Processing of personal data therefore also takes place in a third country. We have concluded an order processing agreement with the provider of "Zoom" that complies with the requirements of Art. 28 DSGVO. Zoom Video Communications, Inc. invokes the conclusion of the so-called EU standard contractual clauses to ensure an appropriate level of data protection.

4 Your rights

Revocation of your consent to data processing

Many data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. You can revoke consent you have already given at any time. For this purpose, an informal communication by e-mail to us is sufficient. In the case of cookies, you also have the option of revoking this directly via the cookie banner. The legality of the data processing carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

 

Right to object to data collection in special cases and to direct advertising (Art. 21 DSGVO)

If data processing is carried out on the basis of Art. 6(1)(f) DSGVO, you have the right to object to the processing of your personal data at any time on grounds relating to your particular situation; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions. The respective legal basis on which processing is based can be found in this data protection declaration. If you object, we will no longer process your personal data concerned unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves the purpose of asserting, exercising or defending legal claims (objection under Article 21(1) of the GDPR).

If your personal data are processed for the purpose of direct marketing, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning you for the purpose of such marketing; this also applies to profiling insofar as it is related to such direct marketing. If you object, your personal data will subsequently no longer be used for the purpose of direct advertising (objection pursuant to Art. 21 (2) DSGVO).


Information, blocking, deletion and correction

Within the framework of the applicable legal provisions, you have the right at any time to free information about your stored personal data, its origin and recipient and the purpose of the data processing and, if applicable, a right to correction, blocking or deletion of this data. You can contact our data protection officer at any time with regard to this and any other questions you may have on the subject of personal data.

 

Right to restriction of processing

You have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data. To do so, you can contact our data protection officer at any time. The right to restriction of processing exists in the following cases:

  • If you dispute the accuracy of your personal data stored by us, we usually need time to check this. For the duration of the verification, you have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data.
  • If the processing of your personal data happened/is happening unlawfully, you can request the restriction of data processing instead of erasure.
  • If we no longer need your personal data, but you need it to exercise, defend or assert legal claims, you have the right to request restriction of the processing of your personal data instead of erasure.
  • If you have lodged an objection pursuant to Art. 21 (1) DSGVO, a balancing of your and our interests must be carried out. As long as it has not yet been determined whose interests prevail, you have the right to demand the restriction of the processing of your personal data.
  • If you have restricted the processing of your personal data, this data may - apart from being stored - only be processed with your consent or for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of an important public interest of the European Union or a Member State.


Right to data portability

You have the right to have data that we process automatically on the basis of your consent or in performance of a contract handed over to you or to a third party in a common, machine-readable format. If you request the direct transfer of the data to another controller, this will only be done insofar as it is technically feasible.

 

Right of complaint to the competent supervisory authority

In the event of breaches of the GDPR, data subjects have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of their habitual residence, their place of work or the place of the alleged breach. The right of appeal is without prejudice to other administrative or judicial remedies.
