Privacy policy

Data protection is of a particularly high priority for us. In doing so, we adhere to the strict provisions of German data protection law as well as the requirements of the European General Data Protection Regulation (GPDR).


Introduction

The use of our Internet pages is possible without any indication of personal data; however, if a data subject wants to use special enterprise services via our website, processing of personal data could become necessary. If the processing of personal data is necessary and there is no statutory basis for such processing, we generally obtain consent from the data subject. The processing of personal data, such as the name, address, e-mail address, or telephone number of a data subject shall always be in line with the General Data Protection Regulation (GPDR), and in accordance with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to us. By means of this data protection declaration, our enterprise would like to inform the general public of the nature, scope, and purpose of the personal data we collect, use and process. Furthermore, data subjects are informed, by means of this data protection declaration, of the rights to which they are entitled.

As the controller, we have implemented numerous technical and organizational measures to ensure the most complete protection of personal data processed through this website. However, Internet-based data transmissions may in principle have security gaps, so absolute protection may not be guaranteed. For this reason, every data subject is free to transfer personal data to us via alternative means, e.g. by telephone.


1. Definitions

Our data protection declaration is based on the terms used by the European legislator for the adoption of the General Data Protection Regulation (GPDR). Our data protection declaration should be legible and understandable for the general public, as well as our customers and business partners.

To ensure this, we would like to first explain the terminology used:


2. Name and Address of the controller

Controller for the purposes of the General Data Protection Regulation (GPDR), other data protection laws applicable in Member states of the European Union and other provisions related to data protection is:

CARBOTECHNIK Energiesysteme GmbH
August Buchberger
Lauterbachstr. 12, 82538 Geretsried-Gelting, Germany
Phone: +49 (0) 8171 9282-0 | E-Mail: info@carbotechnik.de | Website: www.carbotechnik.de


3. Name and Address of the Data Protection Officer

Data Protection Officer of the controller is:

Michael Garke
c/o CARBOTECHNIK Energiesysteme GmbH
Lauterbachstr. 12, 82538 Geretsried-Gelting, Germany
Phone: +49 (0) 8171 9282-34 | E-Mail: datenschutz@carbotechnik.de | Website: www.carbotechnik.de

Any data subject may, at any time, contact our Data Protection Officer directly with all questions and suggestions concerning data protection.


4. Legal basis for the processing

Art. 6(1) lit. a GPDR serves as the legal basis for processing operations for which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is party, as is the case, for example, when processing operations are necessary for the supply of goods or to provide any other service, the processing is based on Article 6(1) lit. b GPDR. The same applies to such processing operations which are necessary for carrying out pre-contractual measures, for example in the case of inquiries concerning our products or services. Is our company subject to a legal obligation by which processing of personal data is required, such as for the fulfillment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6(1) lit. c GPDR.

In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or of another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor were injured in our company and his name, age, health insurance data or other vital information would have to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Then the processing would be based on Art. 6(1) lit. d GPDR.

Finally, processing operations could be based on Article 6(1) lit. f GPDR. This legal basis is used for processing operations which are not covered by any of the abovementioned legal grounds, if processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by our company or by a third party, except where such interests are overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject which require protection of personal data. Such processing operations are particularly permissible because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. He considered that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a client of the controller (Recital 47 Sentence 2 GPDR).


5. The legitimate interests pursued by the controller or by a third party

Where the processing of personal data is based on Article 6(1) lit. f GPDR our legitimate interest is to carry out our business in favor of the well-being of all our employees and the shareholders.


6. Period for which the personal data will be stored

The criteria used to determine the period of storage of personal data is the respective statutory retention period. After expiration of that period, the corresponding data is routinely deleted, as long as it is no longer necessary for the fulfillment of the contract or the initiation of a contract.


7. Provision of personal data as statutory or contractual requirement; Requirement necessary to enter into a contract; Obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data; possible consequences of failure to provide such data

We clarify that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or can also result from contractual provisions (e.g. information on the contractual partner).

Sometimes it may be necessary to conclude a contract that the data subject provides us with personal data, which must subsequently be processed by us. The data subject is, for example, obliged to provide us with personal data when our company signs a contract with him or her. The non-provision of the personal data would have the consequence that the contract with the data subject could not be concluded.

Before personal data is provided by the data subject, the data subject must contact any employee. The employee clarifies to the data subject whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or contract or is necessary for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and the consequences of non-provision of the personal data.


8. Existence of automated decision-making

As a responsible company, we do not use automatic decision-making or profiling.


9. Routine erasure and blocking of personal data

The data controller shall process and store the personal data of the data subject only for the period necessary to achieve the purpose of storage, or as far as this is granted by the European legislator or other legislators in laws or regulations to which the controller is subject to.

If the storage purpose is not applicable, or if a storage period prescribed by the European legislator or another competent legislator expires, the personal data are routinely blocked or erased in accordance with legal requirements.


10. Rights of the data subject

Of course, you have rights in relation to the collection of your data, which we hereby like to inform you in full. If you would like to claim one of the following gratuitous rights, just send us a message (the contact details can be found in the imprint):

  • a) Right of confirmation
  • b) Right of access
  • c) Right to rectification
  • d) Right to erasure (Right to be forgotten)
  • e) Right of restriction of processing
  • f) Right to data portability
  • g) Right to object
  • h) Automated individual decision-making, including profiling
  • i) Right to withdraw data protection consent


11. Special explanations regarding the processing of personal data

11.1. Collection of general data and information (logs)

Our website collects a series of general data and information when a data subject or automated system calls up the website. This general data and information are stored in the server log files. Collected may be (1) the browser types and versions used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the website from which an accessing system reaches our website (so-called referrers), (4) the sub-websites, (5) the date and time of access to the Internet site, (6) an Internet protocol address (IP address), (7) the Internet service provider of the accessing system, and (8) any other similar data and information that may be used in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.

When using these general data and information, we do not draw any conclusions about the data subject. Rather, this information is needed to (1) deliver the content of our website correctly, (2) optimize the content of our website as well as its advertisement, (3) ensure the long-term viability of our information technology systems and website technology, and (4) provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for criminal prosecution in case of a cyber-attack. Therefore, we analyze anonymously collected data and information statistically, with the aim of increasing the data protection and data security of our enterprise, and to ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data we process. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by a data subject.

Legal basis for data processing
The legal basis for the temporary storage of data and log files is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GPDR.

b) Purpose of the data processing
The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary to allow delivery of the website to the computer of the user. To do this, the user's IP address must be kept for the duration of the session.

c) Duration of storage
The data is deleted from the server as soon as it is no longer necessary to achieve the purpose of its collection. The data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by an affected person and automatically overwritten at the latest 7 days after the end of your page visit.

d) Opposition and removal option
The collection of the data for the provision of the website as well as the storage of this data in log files is essential for the operation of the website. There is consequently no contradiction on the part of the user.

Access by Internet service providers and access providers
The services of our Internet Service Providers and Access Providers used by us are to provide the following services: infrastructure and platform services, computing capacity, storage and database services, security services as well as technical maintenance and security check for emails we use for the purpose of the operation of this online offer.

We (or our hosting providers) process inventory data, contact data, content data, contract data, usage data, meta and communication data of customers, interested parties and visitors to this online offer on the basis of our legitimate interests in an efficient and secure provision of this online offer acc. Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GPDR i.V.m. Art. 28 GPDR (order processing contract). The staff of our hosting providers will never consult the content of log files or, in particular, e-mails (e-mail body) without our request and knowledge.

In the security check of our e-mails, messages that are not filtered ("secure" e-mails) are usually only for a few seconds on our partner's servers and will only be temporarily stored if they can not be delivered. Messages detected as spam are kept, but only examined by employees of our hosting providers (eg for the resolution of incorrectly filtered e-mails ("false positives").) The backup of all servers of our hosting providers against unauthorized access is state-of-the-art regularly maintained.


11.2. Cookies

Our Internet pages use cookies. Cookies are text files that are stored in a computer system via an Internet browser.

Many Internet sites and servers use cookies. Many cookies contain a so-called cookie ID. A cookie ID is a unique identifier of the cookie. It consists of a character string through which Internet pages and servers can be assigned to the specific Internet browser in which the cookie was stored. This allows visited Internet sites and servers to differentiate the individual browser of the dats subject from other Internet browsers that contain other cookies. A specific Internet browser can be recognized and identified using the unique cookie ID.

Through the use of cookies, we can provide the users of this website with more user-friendly services that would not be possible without the cookie setting.

By means of a cookie, the information and offers on our website can be optimized with the user in mind. Cookies allow us, as previously mentioned, to recognize our website users. The purpose of this recognition is to make it easier for users to utilize our website. The website user that uses cookies, e.g. does not have to enter access data each time the website is accessed, because this is taken over by the website, and the cookie is thus stored on the user's computer system. Another example is the cookie of a shopping cart in an online shop. The online store remembers the articles that a customer has placed in the virtual shopping cart via a cookie.

The data subject may, at any time, prevent the setting of cookies through our website by means of a corresponding setting of the Internet browser used, and may thus permanently deny the setting of cookies. Furthermore, already set cookies may be deleted at any time via an Internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in all popular Internet browsers. If the data subject deactivates the setting of cookies in the Internet browser used, not all functions of our website may be entirely usable.


11.3. Contact via our website

Description and scope of data processing
Due to legal regulations, our website contains information that enables quick electronic contact to our company as well as direct communication with us, which also includes a general address of the so-called electronic mail (e-mail address). If an affected person contacts the data controller by e-mail or through a contact form, the personal data provided by the data subject will be automatically saved.

For contact forms, in addition to the filled-in input fields to prevent misuse of the contact form and to ensure the security of our information technology systems, the IP address of the user as well as the date and time are stored. For the processing of the data in the context of the sending process your consent is obtained and referred to this privacy statement.

Alternatively, you can send us messages via the provided e-mail addresses. In such a case, the personal data transmitted by you by e-mail will be stored. Such personal data will be stored voluntarily by the data subject to the data controller for the purpose of processing or contacting the data subject. There is no disclosure of this personal data to third parties.

a) Legal basis for data processing
Legal basis for the processing of the data is in the presence of the consent of the user Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GPDR. The legal basis for the processing of the data transmitted in the course of sending an e-mail is Article 6 (1) lit. f GPDR. If the e-mail contact aims to conclude a contract, then additional legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GPDR.

b) Purpose of the data processing
The processing of personal data from the input form of contact forms only serves to process the contact. If you contact us by e-mail, this is also the required legitimate interest in the processing of this data.

c) Duration of storage
The transmitted data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer necessary for the purpose of its collection. This occurs when the respective conversation ends with the user and can be deduced from the circumstances that the request is finally clarified.

d) Opposition and removal option
You have the opportunity to revoke your consent to the processing of personal data at any time. Also in the case of contact by e-mail, you can object to the further storage of personal data at any time. Please note that the conversation can not be continued afterwards. All personal data stored in the course of contacting will be deleted in this case.


11.4. Data protection for applications and the application procedures

The data controller shall collect and process the personal data of applicants for the purpose of the processing of the application procedure. The processing may also be carried out electronically. This is the case, in particular, if an applicant submits corresponding application documents by e-mail or by means of a web form on the website to the controller. If the data controller concludes an employment contract with an applicant, the submitted data will be stored for the purpose of processing the employment relationship in compliance with legal requirements.

If no employment contract is concluded with the applicant by the controller, the application documents shall be automatically erased two months after notification of the refusal decision, provided that no other legitimate interests of the controller are opposed to the erasure. Other legitimate interest in this relation is, e.g. a burden of proof in a procedure under the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG).


11.5. Privacy Policy for Use and Use of Google Maps

The controller has integrated Google Maps on this website. Google Maps is an online service that enables the display of maps with third-party navigation.

The operator of the Google Maps component is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

Google Maps transmits personal data and information, including the IP address, to Google Inc. in the United States of America. This personal information is stored and processed in the United States of America. Google Inc. may transfer such personal information collected through the technical process to third parties.

By using this website, you consent to the collection, processing and use by Google, one of its agents, or third parties of the data collected and entered by you. The use of Google Maps is in the interest of an attractive presentation of our online offers and an easy findability of the places we have indicated on the website. This constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GPDR.

The terms of service for Google Maps can be found in the Google Maps Terms of Service at http://www.google.com/intl/en_uk/help/terms_maps.html. For details, see the Privacy Center at google.com: Transparency and choices at http://www.google.com/intl/en/privacy/ and privacy policy at http://www.google.com/intl/en/privacy/privacy-policy.html.


11.6. Privacy Policy on Use and Use of Google Analytics (with anonymization function)

On this website, the controller has integrated the component of Google Analytics (with the anonymizer function). Google Analytics is a web analytics service. Web analytics is the collection, gathering, and analysis of data about the behavior of visitors to websites. A web analysis service collects, inter alia, data about the website from which a person has come (the so-called referrer), which sub-pages were visited, or how often and for what duration a sub-page was viewed. Web analytics are mainly used for the optimization of a website and in order to carry out a cost-benefit analysis of Internet advertising.

The operator of the Google Analytics component is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, United States.

For the web analytics through Google Analytics the controller uses the application "_gat. _anonymizeIp". By means of this application the IP address of the Internet connection of the data subject is abridged by Google and anonymised when accessing our websites from a Member State of the European Union or another Contracting State to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.

a) Legal basis for data processing
The legal basis for processing users' personal data is Article 6 (1) lit. f GPDR.

b) Purpose of data processing
The purpose of the Google Analytics component is to analyze the traffic on our website. Google uses the collected data and information, inter alia, to evaluate the use of our website and to provide online reports, which show the activities on our websites, and to provide other services concerning the use of our Internet site for us.

Google Analytics places a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. The definition of cookies is explained above. With the setting of the cookie, Google is enabled to analyze the use of our website. With each call-up to one of the individual pages of this Internet site, which is operated by the controller and into which a Google Analytics component was integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject will automatically submit data through the Google Analytics component for the purpose of online advertising and the settlement of commissions to Google. During the course of this technical procedure, the enterprise Google gains knowledge of personal information, such as the IP address of the data subject, which serves Google, inter alia, to understand the origin of visitors and clicks, and subsequently create commission settlements.

The cookie is used to store personal information, such as the access time, the location from which the access was made, and the frequency of visits of our website by the data subject. With each visit to our Internet site, such personal data, including the IP address of the Internet access used by the data subject, will be transmitted to Google in the United States of America. These personal data are stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may pass these personal data collected through the technical procedure to third parties.

The personal data will be transmitted under the EU-US Privacy Shield on the basis of the adequacy decision of the European Commission in the USA. You can find the certificate here.

c) Duration of storage
The data sent by us and linked to cookies, user IDs (eg user ID) or advertising IDs will be automatically deleted after 14 months.The deletion of data whose retention period has been reached is done automatically once a month.

d) Opposition and removal possibility
The data subject may, as stated above, prevent the setting of cookies through our website at any time by means of a corresponding adjustment of the web browser used and thus permanently deny the setting of cookies. Such an adjustment to the Internet browser used would also prevent Google Analytics from setting a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. In addition, cookies already in use by Google Analytics may be deleted at any time via a web browser or other software programs.

In addition, the data subject has the possibility of objecting to a collection of data that are generated by Google Analytics, which is related to the use of this website, as well as the processing of this data by Google and the chance to preclude any such. For this purpose, the data subject must download a browser add-on under the link https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout and install it. This browser add-on tells Google Analytics through a JavaScript, that any data and information about the visits of Internet pages may not be transmitted to Google Analytics. The installation of the browser add-ons is considered an objection by Google. If the information technology system of the data subject is later deleted, formatted, or newly installed, then the data subject must reinstall the browser add-ons to disable Google Analytics. If the browser add-on was uninstalled by the data subject or any other person who is attributable to their sphere of competence, or is disabled, it is possible to execute the reinstallation or reactivation of the browser add-ons.

You can also prevent the collection of your data by Google Analytics by clicking on the following link. An opt-out cookie is set that prevents the collection of your data on future visits to this website: Disable Google Analytics
