Privacy

Our privacy policy

 

1. General information and principles for processing data

We are pleased to have you visit our website. Protecting your privacy and personal data is an important concern of ours when you visit our website.

According to GDPR Art 4(1), personal data refers to any information relating to an identified or identifiable person. This information can include your first name, surname, address, telephone number, email address or IP address, for example.

Data that cannot be used to establish a link to you as a person, e.g. because it has been anonymised, does not count as personal data. Processing your data within the meaning of GDPR Art 4(2) (e.g. collecting, storing, extracting, asking for, using, transferring, erasing or destroying it) also requires legal grounds or your consent. Processed personal data must be erased as soon as the purpose for processing it has been fulfilled and there are no legally required retention periods that must be complied with.

This document provides you with information about how your personal data is treated when you visit our website. We need to collect personal data that concerns you in order to provide the functions and services on our website. This privacy policy also explains to you the nature and scope of the data processing concerned, the purpose, the relevant legal grounds and the period for which data is stored.

This privacy policy only applies to this website. It does not apply to other websites to which we merely provide a hyperlink. We cannot be held responsible for these third-party websites treating your personal data as confidential because we do not have any influence over these companies’ compliance with legal data protection provisions. To learn about how these companies handle your personal data, please refer to the information directly on their websites.

4. Provision and use of website/server log files

a) Nature and scope of data processing
Each time a user accesses a page on our website or views a file, our Web server automatically stores and processes data about these actions in a log file.

If you use this website without transferring us data in some other way (e.g. by registering or using the contact form), we use server log files to collect the following data that is required for technological purposes and transferred to our server automatically:

  • information about the user’s browser type and version used
  • the user’s operating system
  • the user’s IP address
  • the date and time of the request
  • the page/file viewed
  • the volume of data transmitted
  • a message stating if the access/view was successful
  • the internet address from which the user navigated to the page/file or from which the desired function was activated (referrer URL)

b) Purpose of data processing
Our legitimate interest in collecting and processing the aforementioned data, including the IP address, is based on this data being necessary in order to enable usage of our online offering. Furthermore, we also have a legitimate interest in storing the IP address based on our need to ensure IT security, particularly to protect our IT systems against abuse and avert attacks.

c) Legal grounds
The legal grounds for collecting and processing data are provided in GDPR Art 6(1)(f).

d) Duration of storage
The aforementioned data is stored for the duration of the communication process. The IP address is further stored for a short period of no more than seven calendar days to ensure IT security. This data is then erased.

e) Right to object
You generally have a right to object pursuant to GDPR Art 21 in the event that your data is processed in accordance with GDPR Art 6(1)(f). However, in this specific instance of data processing, we have compelling legitimate grounds to process the data because we cannot provide or operate our website without processing this data.

5. Use of cookies

We use cookies. Cookies are small files that are stored on your computer by your browser. Some features of our website cannot be provided without using technologically necessary cookies. On the other hand, there are different cookies that allow us to perform various analyses. Some cookies, for example, can recognise the browser you use when you visit our website again and can convey various types of information to us. We use cookies to simplify and improve how our website is used. For example, we can use cookies to make our online offering more user-friendly and efficient for you by doing things such as seeing how you use our website and finding your preferred settings (e.g. country and language settings). If third parties process information using cookies, they will collect this information directly through your browser. Cookies do not cause any damage to your device. They cannot execute programs and they do not contain viruses. There are different types of cookies used on our website; the following explains their nature and function.

a) Temporary/session cookies
Our website uses what are called temporary or session cookies that are automatically deleted as soon as you close your browser. This type of cookie makes it possible to record your session ID, letting various requests from your browser be linked to the one session and enabling recognition of your device when you visit the website again later. These session cookies expire when the session expires.

b) Persistent cookies
Our website uses what are called persistent cookies. These cookies are stored in your browser over a longer period of time and can transmit information. The duration of time for which they are stored differs based on the cookie. You can delete persistent cookies yourself through your browser’s settings.

c) Configuring browser settings
Most Web browsers are preconfigured to accept cookies automatically. However, you can configure your browser to accept only certain cookies or none at all. Do be aware that you may not be able to use all of our website’s functions in this case.

You can also delete cookies that are already stored in your browser by using your browser’s settings. It is also possible to configure your browser to notify you before it stores cookies. Since different browsers can function in different ways, we ask you to consult your browser’s help menu for the relevant configuration options. You may need to save a persistent cookie to your computer to stop cookies from being set. If you delete this cookie, you will have to save it again for it to remain effective.

d)Cookie categories
We use the following types of categories:    

Essential cookies

Essential cookies safeguard functions that are needed in order to use our website as intended. These strictly necessary cookies can have purposes that include keeping logged-in users logged in when they access different pages, for example. These cookies are first-party cookies that are used exclusively by us. They are technologically necessary, so consent is not required for them. The legal grounds for processing your personal data are provided in GDPR Art 6(1)(f) as we have a legitimate interest in maintaining the functionality of our website. Cookies are deleted as soon as they are no longer needed for the given purposes. You generally have a right to object in accordance with GDPR Art 21. However, with technologically necessary cookies, we have compelling legitimate grounds to process data because we cannot provide our website or the relevant function or provide it properly without processing this data.

Statistics cookies

Statistics cookies gather information about how a website is used in order to improve its appeal, content and functionality. They collect the following data for example:

  • number of times a site or page is accessed
  • dwell time on a website
  • order in which pages are visited
  • search terms
  • country, region and city from which page is accessed
  • percentage of page visits from mobile devices
  • analysis of the areas of our website that interest you most

The legal grounds for processing this personal data are your consent pursuant to GDPR Art 6(1)(a). These cookies are deleted as soon as they are no longer needed for the given purposes, the time period for their storage expires or you withdraw your consent.

Cookies from external services/other non-cookie data transmission to external services (external media)

We block external content from video and social-media platforms by default. If you give your consent to cookies being used and/or your data being disclosed to the external providers, we will display this external content and transfer your data to the external providers.

The legal grounds for processing this personal data are your consent pursuant to GDPR Art 6(1)(a). This personal data is deleted as soon as it is no longer needed for the given purposes, the time period for its storage expires or you withdraw your consent.

6. Services with essential cookies

Our website uses a consent management platform to obtain your consent to cookies being stored in your browser and documenting this consent in compliance with data protection regulations.

The consent management platform stores a cookie in your browser when you enter our website. The consent that you provide and the consent that you withdraw are documented in this cookie. It is an essential cookie and does not require your consent. The legal grounds for processing this data are provided in GDPR Art 6(1)(c). We use this cookie to fulfil our legal obligations.

The cookies are stored until you ask us to erase this data, you delete the cookie yourself or it is no longer necessary to store them for the purpose of the data processing.

You can change your cookie settings at any time under the cookie settings in the website’s footer "Cookie Einstellungen".

7. Services with statistics cookies

Google Analytics

a) Nature and scope of data processing       
We use Google Analytics on our website, a service provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland, telephone: +353 (0)1 5431 000, fax: +353 (0)1 686 5660 6399 (‘Google’).

We have signed processing contracts with Google insofar as Google acts as a processor for us. The function for sharing data with Google has been disabled, which therefore means that Google does not share any responsibility.

Google Analytics uses cookies, which are text files that are stored on your computer and allow an analysis of how you utilise this website.

The information generated by cookies about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the United States and stored there. Google uses this information on behalf of this website’s operator to analyse your use of the website systematically, compile reports on website activities and perform other services associated with website and internet usage for the website operator.

The following data is stored when individual pages on our website are viewed:

  • three bytes of the IP address of the user system viewing the page (anonymised IP address)
  • website viewed
  • website from which the user reached our website (referrer)
  • pages to which the user navigates from the page viewed
  • dwell time on a website
  • frequency at which the website is viewed
  • dwell time on the website
  • scrolling patterns and clicks
  • when ‘website targets’ are reached (e.g. newsletter sign-ups)
  • approximate location
  • information about the browser, internet service provider and device used

We use Google Analytics with IP anonymisation activated. Consequently, the IP addresses are truncated by removing the last octet (e.g. 192.168.79.***; referred to as IP masking). This makes it impossible to link the truncated IP address to the user computer or device accessing the page or website.

b) Purpose of data processing
The purpose of the Google Analytics service is to analyse the user behaviours on our website.

c) Legal grounds
The legal grounds for using Google Analytics are your consent pursuant to GDPR Art 6(1)(a).

d) Duration of storage
The stored data is erased as soon as the set duration of the cookie expires or you withdraw your consent.

Google Analytics stores cookies in your Web browser for a period of fourteen months following your most recent visit. These cookies contain a randomly generated user ID which can be used to recognise you when you visit the website in future. The data recorded is stored along with the randomly generated user ID, enabling an analysis of user profiles kept under a pseudonym. This user-related data is automatically erased after fourteen months. Other data is stored in an aggregated form for an indefinite time period.

e) Right to withdraw
The stored data is erased as soon as you withdraw your consent by deselecting the ‘statistics’ cookie category in the cookie settings. In addition, you can stop the cookie from processing data by downloading and installing the browser add-on for deactivating Google Analytics.

 

f) Further information

https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=en

More detailed information about Google’s processing of data is available in Google’s privacy policy at https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/

8. Services with external media

Integration of YouTube videos (plug-in)

a) Nature and scope of data processing        
We have integrated YouTube videos into our online offering that are stored at www.YouTube.com and can be played directly from our website. YouTube is a service provided by the company Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland, telephone: +353 (0)1 5431 000, fax: +353 (0)1 6865 660 (‘Google’).

We use YouTube in connection with ‘privacy-enhanced mode’ to display videos to you.

Thanks to ‘privacy-enhanced mode’, the data explained in more detail below is only transferred to the YouTube server when you actually start playing a video. YouTube records your IP address, the date, the time and the Web page that you are visiting. This occurs irrespective of whether YouTube provides an account to which you are logged in or whether there is no such account. A connection is also made to the Google advertiser network.

The videos will be activated and your IP address transmitted to Google as soon as you have consented to Google processing data through our consent management platform for the first time.

b) Purpose of processing
We use YouTube to play videos on our website. There is no automatic connection that is made to YouTube’s servers. YouTube videos are displayed on our website and your IP address transmitted to Google only when you have given your explicit consent to this in the ‘external services’ category.

c) Legal grounds
The legal grounds are your consent pursuant to GDPR Art 6(1)(a).

d) Duration of storage
The stored data is erased as soon as the set duration of the cookie expires or you withdraw your consent.

 

e) Right to withdraw
The stored data is erased as soon as you withdraw your consent by deselecting the ‘external services’ cookie category in the cookie settings.

f) Further information
You can find further information in Google’s privacy policy: http://www.google.de/intl/en/policies/privacy/

9. Google Tag Manager

We use the Google Tag Manager product on our website. Google Tag Manager is a service provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland, telephone: +353 (0)1 5431 000, fax: +353 (0)1 6865 660 (‘Google’). It is a solution that lets marketing companies manage website tags through a user interface.

Google Tag Manager only implements tags. Tags are small elements of code on your website that serve to do things such as measure traffic and visitor behaviours, record the effectiveness of online advertising and social media, use remarketing, focus on target audiences and test and optimise your website.

This means that there are no additional cookies that are used. Google Tag Manager triggers different tags that may subsequently collect data. Google Tag Manager does not access this data. If individual domains or cookies have been deactivated, including when you have chosen to opt out of Google Analytics in the manner described above or have configured the relevant settings in your browser, they will remain deactivated for all tracking tags insofar as they are implemented using Google Tag Manager.

Your data is disclosed to our newsletter contractor as part of the process for sending the newsletter. There is no further disclosure of personal data to third parties.

We use the double opt-in method to send out our newsletter. This means that we will only send you an email newsletter if you have explicitly confirmed your consent to being sent the newsletter. We will then send you a confirmation email asking you to confirm your desire to receive future newsletters from us by clicking on a corresponding link. The purpose of this is to ensure that only you, the owner of the email address provided, can sign up for the newsletter. You must confirm soon after receiving the confirmation email otherwise your newsletter sign-up will be automatically deleted from our database. We collect and store the data that you enter on the input screen (e.g. your surname, first name and email address) when you sign up for the newsletter. We also save the IP address assigned by your internet service provider (ISP) when you sign up for the newsletter along with the date and time that you sign up so that we can trace any misuse of your email address at a later point in time. For the confirmation email sent to check your email address (the double opt-in email), we also store the date and time that you click on the confirmation link and the IP address assigned by your internet service provider (ISP).

b) Purpose of data processing
The data that we collect when you sign up for the newsletter is used exclusively for marketing by way of our newsletter.

17. Links to social networks

We have added links on this website to the LinkedIn social network (LinkedIn Ireland Unlimited Company, Wilton Plaza, Wilton Place, Dublin 2, Ireland). No network connection is automatically established with the social network’s server when you visit our website. Only when you click on the ‘LinkedIn’ image integrated into our website will you be redirected to LinkedIn; only from this time will personal data be collected from you.

The following applies when you are directed to our LinkedIn profile through the link on our website as well as when you view our profile on LinkedIn directly.

We have joint responsibility with LinkedIn for the data processing under GDPR Art 26. BVT Holding GmbH & Co. KG and LinkedIn have entered into an agreement about their joint responsibility. In relation to page insights data, the agreement provides that LinkedIn take on the responsibility for providing this data and discharging all relevant, applicable obligations under the GDPR. In particular, LinkedIn fulfils the information disclosure obligations to data subjects under privacy laws. Nevertheless, you can also of course utilise your data subject rights under privacy law against BVT Holding GmbH & Co. KG; we will forward your enquiries accordingly.

Page insights are consolidated statistics that are compiled based on specific events and logged by the LinkedIn servers when people interact with pages and content connected to it.

LinkedIn uses cookies and similar technologies (e.g. pixels and display tags) to collect data (e.g. device IDs) in order to recognise you and your device(s) inside, outside and via various services and devices. You can obtain further information in the LinkedIn cookies policy.

In addition, LinkedIn processes the URL of the website from which you enter as well as the URL of the website that you next navigate to, the time of your visit, your IP address, your proxy server, your operating system, your Web browser, your add-ons, your device identifiers and functions, your cookie IDs and/or your internet service provider/mobile network operator and, based on your consent, your location details.

If you are a member of LinkedIn, LinkedIn processes the personal data that you provide to LinkedIn, such as your educational background, professional experience, skills or photograph.

If you are logged into your user account while you visit our LinkedIn profile, LinkedIn may be able to match the information collected about the specific visit with your user account.

If you wish to prevent this collected information being able to be directly matched with your user account, you must log out from LinkedIn before visiting or deactivate the ‘Stay logged in’ function, delete the cookies stored by your browser and refresh the browser window. You can also configure the relevant user account accordingly.

Further information about data processing at LinkedIn can be found in the LinkedIn privacy policy.

Your data may potentially be transferred by LinkedIn to countries outside of the European Union as part of the processing of this data. LinkedIn has EU–US Privacy Shield certification: www.privacyshield.gov LinkedIn is required to comply with the provisions of the GDPR even when data is processed in the United States.           

18. Data security and backup

We are committed to protecting your privacy and treating your personal data as confidential. We take extensive technical and organisational security measures which are reviewed regularly and adjusted to reflect technological developments. 

They include using recognised encryption methods (SSL or TLS), among other things. However, data that is provided without encryption, for example when it is sent through an unencrypted email, can be obtained by third parties. We do not have any influence over this. It is the relevant user’s responsibility to protect the data that he or she provides against misuse by encrypting it or using some other method.

19. Your rights as a data subject

These are your rights in relation to your personal data. Further details can be found in GDPR Arts 7, 15 to 22 and 77. You can contact the controller (section 2) or data protection officer (section 3) in regard to them.

a) Right to withdraw consent under privacy law pursuant to GDPR Art 7(3)

b) Right to access pursuant to GDPR Art 15 in conjunction with BDSG s 34        
You have the right to obtain confirmation as to whether or not personal data concerning you is being processed by us.

c) Right to rectification and completion pursuant to GDPR Art 16
You have the right to obtain without undue delay the rectification of inaccurate personal data. Taking into account the purposes of the processing, you have the right to have incomplete personal data completed.

d) Right to erasure (‘right to be forgotten’) pursuant to GDPR Art 17 in conjunction with BDSG s 35
You have the right to obtain the erasure of personal data insofar as processing it is unnecessary.
For example, this is the case if your data is no longer necessary in relation to its original purposes, if you have withdrawn your declaration of consent under privacy law or if the personal data has been processed unlawfully.           

e) Right to restriction of processing pursuant to GDPR Art 18
You have the right to obtain restriction of processing where, for example, you believe that the personal data is inaccurate.

f) Right to data portability pursuant to GDPR Art 20
You have the right to receive the personal data concerning you in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format.

 

g) Right to object pursuant to GDPR Art 21

You have the right to object at any time to processing of personal data based on point (e) or (f) of GDPR Art 6(1). In cases of direct marketing, you have the right to object at any time to processing of personal data concerning you for such marketing, which includes profiling to the extent that it is related to such direct marketing.

h) Automated individual decision-making, including profiling pursuant to GDPR Art 22
You are not subject to a decision based solely on automated processing of your data, including profiling, which would produce legal effects concerning you or similarly significantly affect you.

i) Complaint with a supervisory authority pursuant to GDPR Art 77
You may at any time lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority for data protection, for instance if you believe that the processing of your data conflicts with privacy regulations.
