Terms

The technical terms used in this privacy policy are to be understood as legally defined in Art. 4 GDPR.

The terms “user” and “website visitor” are used synonymously in our privacy policy.

 

Recipients of Data

Recipients of data are named in our privacy policy under the respective category/heading.

 

Categories of Data subjects

The categories of data subjects are website visitors and other users of online services.

 

Information on data processing

Automated data processing (log files etc.)

Our website can be visited without actively providing personal information about the user. However, every time our website is accessed, we automatically store access data (server log files), such as the name of the internet service provider, the operating system used, the website the user visited us from, the date and duration of the visit and the name of the file accessed, as well the IP address of the device used (for security reasons, such as to recognise attacks on our website) for a duration of 7 days. This data is solely evaluated for the purpose of improving our offering and does not enable conclusions to be drawn about the person of the user. This data is not merged with other data sources. We process and use the data for the following purposes:  to provide the website, to improve our websites and to prevent and identify errors/malfunctions and the abuse of the website.

Data categories: Meta and communication data (e.g. IP address, date and time of access, time, type of HTTP request, website from which access is made (referrer URL), browser used and, if applicable, operating system of the accessing computer (user agent))

Purpose of processing: Prevention and detection of errors/malfunctions, detection of misuse of the website

Legal base: legitimate interests (Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR

Legitimate interests: ensuring the functionality of the website and its error-free, secure operation, as well as in adapting this website to suit users’ needs

 

Required cookies (functionality, opt-out links, etc.)

In order to enable the use of the basic functions on our website and to provide the service requested by the user, we use so-called cookies on our website. Cookies are a standard Internet technology for storing and retrieving information for website users. Cookies represent information and/or data that can be stored on the user’s end device, for example. With classic cookie technology, the user’s browser is instructed to store certain information on the user’s device when a specific website is accessed.

Strictly necessary cookies are used to provide a telemedia service expressly requested by the user, e.g:

  • Cookies for error analysis and security purposes
  • Cookies for storing logins
  • Cookies to store data in online forms if the form extends over several pages
  • Cookies for storing (language) settings
  • Cookies to store items placed in the shopping cart by users in order to complete the purchase
  • Cookies for storing consent or revocation (opt-in, opt-out)

Some of the cookies used (so-called session cookies) are deleted after the end of the browser session, i.e. after closing the browser.

Cookies can be deleted by users retrospectively in order to remove data that the website has stored on the user’s computer.

The data processing described above may also relate to information that is not personal but constitutes information within the meaning of the TTDSG. In these cases, too, this information may be required for the use of an expressly requested service and may therefore be stored in accordance with Section 25 TTDSG.

Legitimate interests:

Storage of opt-in preferences, ensuring the functionality of the website, preserving user status across the entire website

 

Downloads (Whitepapers, Product Information)

We offer the possibility of downloads on our website to provide our visitors with current or relevant information. In some cases, our visitors can download PDFs without this being recorded by our system. There is no tracking or statistical analysis. In some cases, we collect personal data, including IP addresses, via a form before the download and make the provision of our free services dependent on the subscription to our newsletter. In this case, consent is obtained through a double opt-in process for both the processing of user data for the download and separately for subscribing to download-related mailings, both of which can be freely revoked independently of each other.

Storage and processing of unnecessary information and data

Beyond the required scope, user data may be processed by means of cookies, similar technologies or application-related technologies, e.g. for the purpose of (cross-website) tracking or personalized advertising etc.. Data may be transmitted to third-party providers. The storage and further processing of user data that is not absolutely necessary to provide the telemedia service is then carried out on the basis of consent within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) GDPR (if applicable in conjunction with § 25 para. 1 sentence 2 TTDSG).

 

Content Management Tool (Consent management)

We use a consent management process on our website to store and manage the consent given by website visitors in a verifiable manner in accordance with data protection requirements. The consent management platform used helps us to recognize all cookies and tracking technologies and to control them based on the consent status. At the same time, visitors to our website can use the consent management service we have integrated to manage the consents and preferences given (optional setting of cookies and other technologies that are not required) or revoke consent at any time using the button.

The status of the consent is stored on the server and/or in a cookie (so-called opt-in cookie) or a comparable technology in order to be able to assign the consent to a user or their device. The time of the declaration of consent is also recorded.

Data categories:

Usage data (e. g. websites visited, interest in content, access times), metadata and communication data (e. g. device information, IP addresses)

Purposes of processing:

Fulfilment of accountability obligations, Consent management

Legal bases:

Legal obligation (Art. 6 para 1 lit. c) GDPR, Art. 7 GDPR

Content Management System (with data transfer)

Web-based application with data transfer to CMS providers via installed plugins

We use a content management system (CMS) to edit, organize and display digital content on our website. The application is used web-based on the provider’s servers.

With the help of the CMS, our website can be created, edited and managed and equipped with the necessary functions (e.g. forms, blogs, images and other digital content). In addition, the website designed by the CMS helps our website to be found better by users on the search engine results page (SERP).

By supporting an integrated firewall within the CMS, we ensure that our website is protected from external attacks and thus prevent misuse of the website.

In addition, we ensure that the CMS is regularly updated and patched to guarantee the security of our website, which is based on the CMS.

Data categories:

Usage data (e.g. websites visited, access time), meta and communication data (e.g. device information, anonymized IP address), interaction data (interest in content, etc.)

Purposes of processing:

Creating, editing and managing page content, saving and archiving data, creating landing pages, statistics, measuring reach

Online marketing

Search Engine Marketing (Advertising in search engines)

We use search engine marketing methods. Search engine marketing includes all measures that are suitable for improving the visibility of our website in the organic or non-organic search results of search engines, increasing our reach and thus increasing traffic (visitor traffic) to our website. We can also use search engine marketing to generate new prospects (leads). The search engine provider sells us advertising space on the search engine results page or on websites of the search engine provider’s partners.

The advertisements can therefore be placed on various external platforms or websites. The ads are displayed to users in the form of text, display or video ads.

Using our tracking tool, we first create a campaign for search engine advertising and store various dimensions there that are to be recorded by the search engine provider selected by us, e.g. user location, device information and target groups (demographic characteristics). This enables us to gain further insights into the interests in our content/products and, if necessary, to recognize trends.

The process is implemented using a cookie or similar technology. When a visitor visits our website or searches for a specific keyword within the search engine used (e.g. Google), a cookie or similar technology is set on the website visitor’s end device. This data may include, for example, user locations and device information, which is transmitted to the search engine provider’s server. The search engine provider aggregates this data and makes it available to us automatically in the form of a statistical analysis via a dashboard in our account with the search engine provider.

The statistics provide us with information about which of our ads were clicked on, how often and at what prices, and whether our marketing measures led to a so-called event (e.g. downloading a PDF or playing a video) or a conversion (e.g. purchase of a product or registration on our website). The evaluation serves to analyze the success of our online activities. Because every click on an ad incurs costs for us, these clicks on external platforms and websites are recorded using our tracking tool. The recording is used for budget and success control.

Note:

Website visitor data (e.g. name and e-mail address) can be assigned directly if they are logged into their account with the search engine provider. If assignment via the profile is not desired, the website visitor must log out of the search engine provider before visiting our website.

Data categories: Usage data (e.g. websites visited, interest in content, access times), metadata and communication data (e.g. device information, IP addresses), location data, contact data (e.g. email address, telephone number), content data (e.g. text inputs, photographs, videos)

Purposes of processing: Increase in sales and reach, conversion measurement, target group formation, identification of trends for the development of marketing strategies

Legal base: Consent (article 6 (1) (a) GDPR)

Presence on social media

We maintain a company profile on social networks and career platforms in order to increase our visibility among potential customers and interested parties and to make our company visible to the public.

Social networks help us to increase our reach and actively promote interaction and communication with users. Activity and communication on social media plays a key role in attracting new customers and employees. Social media and the website can be used to share relevant information about our company, publicize events and communicate important short-term announcements and job vacancies. They also help us to get in touch with users quickly and easily.

Social media platform operators create so-called user profiles based on the usage behavior of users, for example the indication of interests (likes, shares). These are used to adapt advertisements to the interests of target groups. When users are active on social media channels, cookies or other technologies are regularly stored on users’ end devices, in some cases regardless of whether they are registered users of the social network.

Insights (statistics)

The data evaluated by the social media platform operators are provided to us in the form of anonymized statistics, which means that they no longer contain any personal data of users. We can use the statistics to see, for example, how often and at what time our social media profile was visited. It is currently not possible for fan page operators to deactivate this function. We therefore have no influence on the extent to which the data is processed by social media platforms.

Depending on where the social network is operated, user data may be processed outside the European Union or outside the European Economic Area. This may result in risks for users because it makes it more difficult to enforce their rights.

Data categories:

Master data (e.g. name, address), contact data (e.g. email address, telephone number), content data (e.g. text inputs, photographs, videos), usage data (e.g. websites visited, interest in content, access times), metadata and communication data (e.g. device information, IP addresses)

Purposes of processing:

Increase in the reach, networking of users

Legal bases:

legitimate interest (article 6 (1) (f) GDPR), Consent (article 6 (1) (a) GDPR)

Further mandatory information on data processing

Data transfer

We transfer the personal data of website visitors for internal purposes (e.g. for internal administration or to the HR department in order to comply with legal or contractual obligations). The internal data transfer or disclosure of data takes place to the extent necessary in compliance with the relevant data protection regulations.

It may be necessary for us to pass on personal data in order to execute contracts or to fulfill a legal obligation. If we are not provided with the data required in this respect, it may not be possible to conclude the contract with the data subject.

If your data is processed outside the EU/EEA, in so-called third countries (e.g. USA), we ensure that this is done in accordance with the requirements of Art. 44 et seq. GDPR. We take additional measures to ensure the highest possible level of protection for the personal data of data subjects. The guarantee applicable to the transfer to third countries is specified in our privacy policy for the respective recipients.

Legal basis:

Recipient:

Harro Höfliger Verpackungsmaschinen GmbH

Data Processing

Recipients used may act for us as so-called processors. We have concluded so-called “order processing contracts” with them in accordance with Art. 28 para. 3 GDPR. This means that the processors may only process your personal data in a way that we have explicitly instructed them to do so. Processors take adequate technical and organizational measures to process your data securely and in accordance with our instructions.

 

Storage period

In principle, we store the data of visitors to our online offering for as long as needed to render our service or to the extent that the European body issuing directives and regulations or another legislator stipulates in laws and regulations to which we are subject. In all other cases, we delete personal data once the purpose has been fulfilled, with the exception of data that we need to continue to store to comply with legal obligations (e.g. if retention periods under tax law and trade law require us to keep documents such as contracts and invoices for a certain period of time).

 

Automated decision-making

We do not use automated decision-making or profiling in accordance with Art. 22 GDPR.

 

Legal bases

The decisive legal bases primarily arise from the GDPR. They are supplemented by national laws from member states and can, if applicable, be applied alongside or in addition to the GDPR.

Consent:

Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing procedures regarding which we have sought consent for a particular purpose of processing.

Performance of a contract:                              

Article 6 (1) (b) serves as the legal basis for processing required to perform a contract to which the data subject is a contractual party or for taking steps prior to entering into a contract, at the request of the data subject.

Legal obligation:

Article 6 (1) (c) GDPR is the legal basis for processing that is required to comply with a legal obligation.

Vital interests:

Article 6 (1) (d) GDPR serves as the legal basis if the processing is necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person.

Public interest:

Article 6 (1) (e) GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing that is necessary to perform a task in the public interest or to exercise public force that is transferred to the controller.

Legitimate interest:

Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing that is necessary to protect the legitimate interests of the controller or a third party, provided this is not outweighed by the interests or fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the data subject that require personal data to be protected, particularly if the data subject is a child.

 

Rights of the data subject

In the latter case, data subjects have a general right to object that is to be put into effect by us without a particular situation being stated.

 

Withdrawal of consent

Some data processing procedures can only be carried out with the express consent of the data subject. Once granted, you are able to withdraw consent at any time. To do so, sending an informal note or email to datenschutz@hoefliger.de is sufficient. The consent of data processing operations on our online offer can be directly adjusted in our Cookieyes-Tool. The legality of the data processing carried out up to the point of withdrawal shall remain unaffected by the withdrawal.
