Thank you for your interest in our company – INDUSTRONIC® Industrie-Electronic GmbH & Co. KG. Data protection is a priority for our management. Using the websites of INDUSTRONIC® Industrie-Electronic GmbH & Co. KG is in general possible without providing any kind of personal data. However, if a data subject wishes to take advantage of a special service of our company offered on our website, processing personal data may become necessary. Where processing is required and where no legal basis is in place for the processing, we generally obtain the data subject’s consent.

Personal data, such as the data subject’s name, address, email address or phone number, is always processed in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation and in accordance with the country-specific data protection provisions applicable for INDUSTRONIC® Industrie-Electronic GmbH & Co. KG. This Data Protection Declaration is to inform the public of the nature, extent and purpose of the personal data collected, used and processed by us. The data subjects are further instructed on their rights via this Data Protection Declaration.

In its capacity as the controller, INDUSTRONIC® Industrie-Electronic GmbH & Co. KG has implemented numerous technical and organizational measures to safeguard the personal data processed through this website as seamlessly as possible. Internet-based data transmissions may, however, in general be prone to security gaps, which is why full and complete protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, every data subject is free to transmit personal data also through alternative means, e.g. by phone.

DEFINITIONS

Our Data Protection Declaration is based on the terminology used by the European legislative and regulatory authority for adopting the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). It is to be easy to read and understand for the public as well as for our customers and business partners. To this end, we would like to explain the following terms in advance:

Personal data is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter referred to as “data subject”). An identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more characteristics specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.

Data subject refers to every identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data are processed by the controller responsible for the processing.

Processing any operation or set of operations which is performed on personal data or on sets of personal data, whether or not by automated means, such as collection, recording, organization, structuring, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.

Restriction of processing means the marking of stored personal data with the aim of limiting their processing in the future.

Profiling means any form of automated processing of personal data consisting of the use of personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyze or predict aspects concerning that natural person's performance at work, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behavior, location or movements.

Pseudonymization means the processing of personal data in such a manner that the personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without the use of additional information, provided that such additional information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organizational measures to ensure that the personal data are not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.

Controller or controller responsible for the processing means the natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which, alone or jointly with others, determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data. Where the purposes and means of such processing are determined by Union or Member State law, the controller or the specific criteria for its nomination may be provided for by Union or Member State law.

COOKIES

The website of INDUSTRONIC® Industrie-Electronic GmbH & Co. KG uses cookies. Cookies are text files created and stored on a computer via a browser.

Many website and servers use cookies. Many cookies contain a so-called cookie ID, which is a unique identifier of the cookie. It consists of a
series of characters through which websites and servers can be allocated to the specific browser in which the cookie was stored. This enables the visited websites and servers to differentiate the data subject’s individual browser from other browsers containing other cookies. A specific browser can be recognized and identified via the unique cookie ID.

The use of cookies enables us to simplify the use of our website for users and to offer user-friendly services, such as information and special offers, which would not be possible without creating cookies.

The user of a website which uses cookies is, for instance, not required to enter their access data anew for each visit of the website, as this data is retained by the website and by the cookie stored on the user’s computer system. Another example is the cookie of a shopping cart in the online shop. The online shop remembers the articles the customer put in the virtual shopping card via a cookie.

The data subject may, however, prevent cookies from being saved by our website at any time by adjusting the browser used accordingly and thus permanently deactivate cookies. Cookies already created may furthermore be erased at any time via a browser or other software. This can be done in all common browsers. If the data subject deactivates cookies in the browser used, not all functions of our website may be fully available.

COLLECTING GENERAL DATA AND INFORMATION

The website of INDUSTRONIC® Industrie-Electronic GmbH & Co. KG collects a series of general data and information each time a data subject or automated system accesses it. This general data and information is stored in the log files of the server. The following information may be collected: (1) browser types and versions used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the website from which an accessing system accesses our website (so-called referrers), (4) sub-pages which are accessed via an accessing system on our website, (5) the date and time of the access of the website, (6) an Internet protocol address (IP address), (7) the Internet service provider of the accessing system, and (8) other similar data and information for emergency response in case of attacks on our IT systems.

Using this general data and information does not allow any conclusions concerning the data subject. This information is rather required to (1) correctly deliver the contents of our website, (2) optimize the contents of our website and the advertisements for the website, (3) ensure the permanent functionality of our IT systems and technology of our website, and (4) to provide law enforcement authorities with the required information in case of a cyberattack. These anonymously collected data and information are analyzed by us and therefore on the one hand statistically and on the other hand with the purpose of improving data security and protection within our company to ultimately ensure an optimum level of security for the personal data processed by us. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by a data subject.

SUBSCRIPTION TO OUR NEWSLETTER

We periodically notify our customers and business partners of our company’s offers via a newsletter. Users can subscribe to our company’s newsletter on our website. The input masks used for this purpose indicate which personal data is transmitted to us upon subscribing to the newsletter.

The data subject can subsequently receive our newsletter, provided (1) the data subject has a valid email address, (2) the data subject subscribed to the newsletter or (3) provided us with their contact data in a different way.

A confirmation mail will be sent to the email address initially entered by the data subject for the newsletter subscription for legal reasons pursuant to the double opt-in process. This confirmation email is to verify whether the holder of the email address authorized the newsletter subscription in their capacity as data subject.

When subscribing to our newsletter, we will also save the IP address assigned by the Internet service provider (ISP) to the computer system used by the data subject at the time of the subscription, as well as the date and time of the subscription. Collecting the data is necessary to be able to reconstruct the (potential) misuse of a data subject’s email address at a later time and therefore serves our legal protection.

The personal data collected within the scope of the newsletter subscription shall exclusively be used to deliver our newsletter. The newsletter subscribers may furthermore be contacted by email, if required for the operation of the newsletter service or if a registration in this regard is necessary, as may be the case in case of any changes to the newsletter offer or in case of any changes in the technical circumstances. The technical implementation of the newsletter delivery is conducted by the company Gleis Neun GmbH; no other personal data shall be forwarded to any third parties beyond this information. The subscription to our newsletter may be canceled by the data subject at any time. The consent to the storage of personal data granted by the data subject for the newsletter delivery may be withdrawn at any time. Each newsletter contains a link for the purpose of withdrawing the consent.

Data protection provisions on the use of Twitter

We integrated components of Twitter on our website. Twitter is a multilingual, publicly accessible microblogging service where users can publish and share so-called tweets, i.e. short messages limited to 140 characters. These short messages can be accessed by anyone, i.e. also by individuals not registered with Twitter. The tweets will, however, also be displayed to the so-called followers of the corresponding user. Followers are other Twitter users who follow a user’s tweets. Twitter further enables addressing a broader audience via hashtags, links or retweets.

Twitter is operated by the company Twitter, Inc., 1355 Market Street, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA.

Each time one of the individual pages of the website operated by us and on which a Twitter component (Twitter button) is integrated is accessed, the browser of the data subject’s IT system is automatically prompted by the Twitter component to download a view of the Twitter component from Twitter. Please see https://about.twitter.com/de/resources/buttons for more information on the Twitter buttons. Within the scope of this technical process, Twitter is notified of which specific subpage of our website was visited by the data subject. The purpose of the integration of the Twitter component consists in enabling users to further spread the contents of our website, to make our website known in the digital world and to increase our visitor count.

If the data subject is simultaneously logged into Twitter, Twitter will recognize - with each visit of our website by the data subject and for the entire duration of the visit of our website - which specific subpage of our website was visited by the data subject. This information is collected by the Twitter component and allocated to the data subject’s Twitter account. If the data subject clicks one of the Twitter buttons integrated on our website, the data and information thus transmitted will be allocated to the data subject’s Twitter user account and stored as well as processed by Twitter.

Twitter will in each case be notified via the Twitter component that the data subject visited our website, provided the data subject is simultaneously logged into Twitter when accessing our website; this takes place irrespective of whether the data subject clicks the Twitter component or not. If the data subject does not agree to such transmission of information to Twitter, the transmission can be prevented by logging out of your Twitter account prior to accessing our website.

Please see https://twitter.com/privacy?lang=de for the applicable data privacy policy of Twitter.

Data protection provisions on the use of YouTube

We integrated components of YouTube on our website. YouTube is an Internet video portal which enables video publishers to upload video clips free of charge and enables other users to watch, rate and comment such videos, also free of charge. YouTube permits publishing all kinds of videos, which is why full movies and TV series as well was music videos, trailers or user-made videos are available on the Internet portal.

YouTube is operated by the company YouTube LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. YouTube, LLC is a subsidiary of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

Each time one of the individual pages of the website operated by us and on which a YouTube component (YouTube video) is integrated is accessed, the browser of the data subject’s IT system is automatically prompted by the YouTube component to download a view of the YouTube component from YouTube. Please see https://www.youtube.com/yt/about/de/ for more information on YouTube. Within the scope of this technical process, YouTube and Google are notified of which specific subpage of our website was visited by the data subject.

If the data subject is simultaneously logged into YouTube, YouTube will recognize - with each visit of a subpage which contains a YouTube video - which specific subpage of our website was visited by the data subject. This information is collected by YouTube and Google and allocated to the data subject’s YouTube account.

YouTube and Google will in each case be notified via the YouTube component that the data subject visited our website, provided the data subject is simultaneously logged into YouTube when accessing our website; this takes place irrespective of whether the data subject clicks a YouTube video or not. If the data subject does not agree to such transmission of information to YouTube and Google, the transmission can be prevented by logging out of their YouTube account prior to accessing our website.

The data privacy policy provisions published by YouTube under https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/ provide information on the collection, processing and use personal data by YouTube and Google.

CONTACTING US VIA THE WEBSITE

Due to statutory requirements, our website contains information on how to contact our company quickly by electronic means as well as on how to establish direct communication with us, which also covers a general email address. If a data subject contacts us via email or via a contact form, the personal data transmitted by the data subject are stored automatically. Such personal data transmitted to us by a data subject on a voluntary basis are stored for the purpose of processing or contacting the data subject or for delivering the newsletter.

If the reason for contacting us involves products or services handled by one of our partner companies, we will also forward the data of the data subject to such companies.

No personal data shall be forwarded to any third parties beyond that.

COMMENT FUNCTION IN THE BLOG ON THE WEBSITE

We offer users the opportunity to leave individual comments on specific blog posts on the blog included on our website. A blog is a portal operated on a website and usually visible to the public, where one or several individuals called bloggers or web bloggers submit articles or thoughts in the form of so-called blog posts. The blog posts can usually be commented by third parties.

If a data subject leaves a comment on the blog published on our website, information on the time of the comment and on the user name (pseudonym) selected by the data subject is stored and published in addition to the comments left by the data subject. The IP address assigned by the data subject’s Internet service provider (ISP) is also recorded. The IP address is stored for security reasons and in case the data subject infringes on third party rights or posts illegal contents in a posted commented. Such collected personal data shall not be forwarded to any third parties, unless such forwarding is dictated by law or serves our legal protection.

LEGAL BASIS OF THE PROCESSING

Point a of Article 6(1) GDPR serves our company as legal basis for any processing where we are required to obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. Where the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is party, as is the case with processing procedures necessary for a delivery of goods or for rendering other services or consideration, such processing is based on point (b) of Article 6(1) GDPR. The same shall apply to such processing procedures as are necessary to take steps prior to entering into a contract, e.g. in case of inquiries concerning our products or services. If we are subject to a legal obligation due to which a processing of personal data is necessary, such as for the fulfillment of tax obligations, such processing is based on point (c) of Article 6(1) GDPR. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may become necessary to protect interests which are essential for the life of the data subject or that of another natural person. This would for instance be the case, if a visitor were to be injured in our company premises and their name, age, health insurance data or other vital information would need to be disclosed to a doctor, hospital or other third parties. The processing would then be based on point (d) of Article 6(1) GDPR. Lastly, processing procedures may be based on point (f) of Article 6(1) GDPR. This is the legal grounds for processing procedures not covered by any of the aforementioned legal grounds, if the processing is necessary for protecting the legitimate interests of our company or of a third party, provided the interests, basic rights and basic freedoms of the data subjects are not overriding. We are in particular authorized to perform such processing procedures, as they were specifically mentioned by the European legislator. They accordingly took the view that a legitimate interest might be assumed if the data subject is a customer of ours (Recital 47 Sentence 2 GDPR).

LEGITIMATE INTERESTS IN THE PROCESSING PURSUED BY US OR BY A THIRD PARTY

If the processing of personal data is based on point (f) of Article 6(1) GDPR, our legitimate interest is the conducting of our business for the benefit of all our employees and shareholders.

DURATION OF RETENTION OF PERSONAL DATA

The personal data provided to us voluntarily shall be stored by us until consent is withdrawn. If the data subject wishes to have their personal data erased, we shall erase them.

Personal data stored due to a legal basis shall be erased routinely upon the expiry of the corresponding statutory retention period.
