For the design of our websites and the provision of additional functions, we integrate the following external services in our own interest.

 

The services can be deactivated via our so-called Consent Manager or by using special plugins for your browser, or to be more precise: this prevents the necessary connection to the corresponding servers. Please note, however, that the use of such tools may result in a loss of everyday comfort, as many things will no longer function as you would normally expect.

11. Integrated services

On our website, in the service portal section, we integrate content from Google Maps in order to present the locations of our company as well as the locations of our machines in operation at your site in a simplified way. When Google Maps is activated, a connection is established between your browser and the Google Maps server and your IP address is transmitted. If you are logged in to Google with an existing user account while visiting our websites, Google may also be able to associate your visit to our websites with your user behavior. In addition, further cookies may be sent to your browser by Google. We have no influence on this procedure and do not receive any information from Google about the transmitted content.

 

Analysis of your user behavior by Google:

Google stores your data as user profiles and uses these for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or designing of its website in line with requirements. Such an analysis is carried out in particular (even for users who are not logged in) for the provision of tailored advertising.

You have a right to object to the formation of these user profiles. In order to exercise this right, however, you must approach Google directly.

Legal basis of data processing:

The processing of your data is based on your consent, pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) GDPR.

11.2 StepStone

Our websites feature links to various social media with the corresponding logos. These are not social media plug-ins, but merely a link to our offers within these media. If you click on one of these links, your IP address will always be transmitted to the operators of the various platforms. If you use one of these services and are also logged in with your specific account, information about your surfing behavior may also be collected by the operators of social media. The transmission of your IP address to the operators of the websites accessed is technically necessary and applies to all websites.

12. Social media links

Processing of your personal data in countries outside the European Union and the European Economic Area does not take place, with the exception of the processing described under “integrated services”.

13. Processing of your personal data in countries outside the EU and the EEA (third countries)

You have the following rights vis-à-vis us concerning personal data relating to your person:

  • right to information,
  • right to rectification or erasure,
  • right to restriction of processing,
  • right to data portability.
14. Your rights

In addition, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a data protection supervisory authority about processing of your personal data by us. The competent supervisory authority relevant in our case is:

 

Die Landesbeauftragte für den Datenschutz Niedersachsen
(State Commissioner for Data Protection in Lower Saxony)
Frau Barbara Thiel
Prinzenstraße 5
D- 30159 Hannover

 

https://lfd.niedersachsen.de/startseite/

14.1 Right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority

If you have granted consent to the processing of your data, you are entitled to revoke this at any time. After informing us of such a revocation, this influences permissibility of the processing of your personal data.

 

Insofar as we base the processing of your personal data on the balance of interests (the legal basis is then Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR), you may object to the processing. This is the case, in particular, if the processing is not necessary for the fulfilment of a contract with you. This is described by us in each case in the description of the individual data processing and functions available on our website in an earlier section of this privacy policy. If you submit such an objection, we would request you to explain the reasons why we should not process your personal data in the way we have been doing. In the case of an objection indicating reasons, we check the circumstances of the case and will either stop or adjust the data processing or explain to you our compelling legitimate grounds on the basis of which we continue to process the data.

14.2 Right of objection and revocation

You can, of course, object to the processing of your personal data for the purposes of advertising and data analysis at any time, e.g. also if you receive advertising from us in the form of a newsletter, customer magazine or information material by mail as part of a business relationship.

 

If we use your data within the scope of functions of our websites for direct advertising and a corresponding data analysis, we inform you about this data processing in an earlier section of this privacy policy, including a possibility to exercise your right to object by technical means.

14.3 Right to object to direct advertising
14.4 Contact options regarding your rights

We also use technical and organizational safety measures to protect personal data that we receive or collect, in particular against accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction or against attack by unauthorized persons. Our security measures are continuously improved in line with technological developments.

 

Transmission of your personal data is encrypted using SSL technology (https) to prevent access by unauthorized third parties.

15. Data security

Our e-mail systems support encrypted communication using SSL technology (TLS 1.2 incl. PFS). It is therefore fundamentally possible to encrypt the transmission of your e-mail. Please note, however, that encryption also depends on the configuration of your e-mail program and therefore we cannot guarantee complete data security for the transport route.

 

For information requiring a high level of confidentiality, we recommend that you send it by post.
