Privacy

We would like to use the information below to provide you "data subject" with an overview of our processing of your personal data and your rights under data protection law. It is generally possible to use our website without entering personal data. However, if you wish to make use of special services offered by our company through our website, it may be necessary to process personal data. If it is necessary to process personal data and there is no legal basis for such processing, we will generally obtain your consent.

Personal data, such as your name, address or email address, is always processed in accordance with the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and in accordance with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to the "KOCH Pac-Systeme GmbH". The aim of this Privacy Notice is to inform you about the scope and purpose of the personal data we collect, use and process.

As the data controller, we have implemented numerous technical and organisational measures to ensure the most complete possible protection of the personal data processed via this website. Nevertheless, Internet-based data transmissions can in principle have security gaps so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, you are free to submit personal data on alternative ways, such as by phone or by post to us.

Legal basis for processing

Article 6 Paragraph 1(a) GDPR serves as our company’s legal basis for processing operations in 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 you are a party, as is the case, for example, with processing operations that are necessary for the delivery of goods or the provision of other services or consideration, processing is based on Article 6 Paragraph 1(b) GDPR. The same applies to those processing operations required to carry out pre-contractual measures, such as in cases of queries regarding our products or services.

If our company is subject to a legal obligation requiring the processing of personal data, such as for the fulfilment of tax obligations, processing is based on Article 6 Paragraph 1(c) GDPR.

In rare cases, 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 someone visiting our business were to be injured and their name, age, health insurance data or other vital information needed to be disclosed to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Processing would then be based on Article 6 Paragraph 1(d) GDPR.

Finally, processing operations could be based on Article 6 Paragraph 1(f) GDPR. Processing operations not based on any of the above-mentioned legal bases may be carried out on the basis of Article 6 Paragraph 1(f) GDPR if processing is necessary to safeguard the legitimate interests of our company or those of a third party, provided the interests and fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not take precedence. We are permitted to engage in such processing operations in particular because they have been specifically mentioned in European law. In this respect, the legislature took the view that a legitimate interest could be assumed if you are a customer of our company (Recital 47 Sentence 2 GDPR).

 

Technology

SSL/TLS encryption

This site uses SSL or TLS encryption to ensure the security of data processing and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders, login details or contact requests that you send to us as the website operator. You can recognise an encrypted connection by your browser?s address bar reading "https://" instead of "http://" and the lock symbol in the browser bar.

We use this technology to protect your transmitted data.

 

Data collection when visiting the website

If you only use our website for informational purposes, i.e. if you do not register or otherwise provide us with information, we only collect the data your browser sends our server (in what is known as "server log files"). Our website collects a range of general data and information each time you access a website or an automated system. This general data and information is stored in the server?s log files. It may be colltected

1. the types and versions used,

2. the operating system used by the accessing system,

3. the website from which an accessing system accesses our website (called a referrer),

4. the sub-pages accessed via an accessing system on our website,

5. the date and time the website is accessed,

6. a truncated internet protocol address (anonymised IP address) and

7. the accessing system's internet service provider.

 

No conclusions are drawn about you when using this general data and information. Instead, this information is needed

1. to properly deliver our website content,

2. to optimise the content of our website as well as to advertise it,

3. to ensure the continued functioning of our IT systems and our website?s technology

4. as well as to provide the information necessary for law enforcement authorities to prosecute in the event of a cyber attack.

 

This collected data and information is therefore statistically analysed and further analysed by us with the aim of increasing data protection and data security within our company to ultimately ensure an optimum level of protection for the personal data being processed by us. The anonymous data from the server log files is stored separately from all personal data provided by a data subject.

The legal basis for data processing is Article 6 Paragraph 1 Sentence 1(f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest is based on the purposes listed above for the collection of data.

 

Cookies

General information about cookies

We use cookies on our website. Cookies are small files that are automatically created by your browser and stored on your IT system (laptop, tablet, smartphone, etc.) when you visit our website.

Information generated from the specific device used is stored in cookies. This does not mean, however, that we will gain immediate knowledge of your identity.

The use of cookies helps us make it more convenient for you to use our website. For example, we use session cookies to detect whether you have already visited individual pages on our website. These are erased automatically when you leave our website.

We also use temporary cookies to optimise user-friendliness. These cookies are stored on your device for a specific period of time. If you return to our website to use our services, cookies allow us to automatically recognise that you have visited our website previously and remember the inputs and settings you have made so that you do not have to enter them again.

We also use cookies to statistically record the use of our website and analyse it for the purpose of optimising our services. These cookies allow us to automatically recognise that you have already visited our website when you visit our website again. These cookies are automatically erased after a defined period of time.

 

Legal basis for the use of cookies

The data processed by cookies, which are required for the proper functioning of the website, are to safeguard our legitimate interests pursuant to Article 6 Paragraph 1 Sentence 1(f) GDPR.

For all other cookies you have given your consent to this through our opt-in cookie banner in accordance with Article 6 Paragraph 1(a) GDPR.

 

Contents of our website

Contact/contact form

Personal data is collected when you contact us (e.g. using our contact form or by email). If you use a contact form to get in touch with us, the contact form you use will indicate the data being collected. This data is stored and used exclusively for the purpose of responding to your query or establishing contact and the associated technical administration. The legal basis for data processing is our legitimate interest in responding to your request pursuant to Article 6 Paragraph 1(f)f GDPR. If the aim of you contacting us is to conclude a contract, processing is also legally based on Article 6 Paragraph 1(b) GDPR. Your data will be erased once we have finished processing your query. This is the case when it can be inferred from the circumstances that the relevant facts have been clarified in a conclusive manner and there are no statutory retention obligations in place that prevent its erasure.

 

Application management/job exchange

We collect and process the personal data of applicants for the purpose of carrying out the application process. Processing may also be carried out electronically. This is particularly the case if an applicant submits corresponding application documents to us electronically, for example by email or via a web form on the website. If we conclude an employment contract with an applicant, the data transmitted will be stored for the purpose of processing the employment relationship in compliance with the statutory provisions. If we do not conclude an employment contract with the applicant, the application documents will be automatically erased two (2) months after notification of the rejection decision, provided that no other legitimate interests of ours prevent their erasure. Other legitimate interests in this context include, for example, the duty to provide evidence in proceedings under the German Equal Treatment Act (Allgemeines Gleichbehandlungsgesetz [AGG]).

Legal basis for the processing of the data is Article 88 GDPR, § 26 I BDSG

 

Facebook Connect

If you have a Facebook profile, you can register on our website to create a customer account or to register using the "Facebook Connect" social plugin run by the Facebook social network, which is operated by Facebook, Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA ("Facebook"), using what is known as Single Sign-On technology. You can recognise the "Facebook Connect" social plugins on our website by the blue button with the Facebook logo and the inscription "Register with Facebook" or "Connect with Facebook" or "Log in with Facebook" or "Sign in with Facebook".

When you visit a page of our website that contains a social plugin, your browser makes a direct connection to the Facebook servers. The content of the plugin is transferred from Facebook directly to your browser, which then embeds it into the website. Through the integrated plugin, Facebook receives the information that your browser has accessed the corresponding page of our website, even if you do not have a Facebook profile or are not currently logged in to Facebook. This information (including your IP address) is transmitted by your browser directly to a Facebook server in the US and stored there. These data processing operations are carried out in accordance with Article 6 Paragraph 1(f) GDPR on the basis of Facebook's legitimate interest in the displaying of personalised advertising on the basis of browsing behaviour.

By using the "Facebook Connect" button on our website, you can also log in or register on our website using your Facebook user data. Depending on your personal data protection settings on Facebook, we will only receive general information that is publicly accessible and stored in your profile when you use Facebook?s "Facebook Connect" button if you give your express consent in accordance with Article 6 Paragraph 1(a) GDPR prior to the registration process on the basis of a corresponding notification on the exchange of data with Facebook. This information includes your user ID, name, profile picture, age and gender.

We would like to point out that changes to Facebook's privacy policy and terms of use may also result in the transfer of your profile pictures, your friends' user IDs and friends list if these have been marked as "public" in your Facebook privacy settings. We will store and process the data transmitted by Facebook to create a user account with the necessary data, provided you have approved this on Facebook (title, first name, surname, address details, country, email address, date of birth). Conversely, based on your consent, data (e.g. information on your surfing or purchasing behaviour) may be transferred from us to your Facebook profile.

You may revoke your consent at any time by sending a message to the data controller specified at the beginning of this Privacy Notice.

Please see Facebook's privacy policies for the purpose and scope of data collection and the further processing and use of data by Facebook, as well as your rights and settings options for protecting your privacy: https://www.facebook.com/policy.php.

If you do not wish Facebook to associate any data collected via our website with your Facebook profile, you should log out of Facebook before you visit our website. You can also completely avoid loading the Facebook plugin with add-ons for your browser, for example using "Adblock Plus" (https://adblockplus.org/).

 

Newsletters

CleverReach

This website uses CleverReach to send newsletters. The provider is CleverReach GmbH & Co. KG, Mühlenstr. 43, 26180 Rastede. CleverReach is a service which enables the management and analysis of newsletters. The data you have provided for the newsletter (e.g. email address) are saved on CleverReach servers in Germany and/or Ireland.

We can analyse the behaviour of newsletter recipients by sending newsletters through CleverReach. Examples of analyses include determining how many recipients have opened the newsletter email and how often they have clicked on certain links contained within the newsletter. Conversion Tracking can also be used to analyse if clicking on the link led to a pre-determined action (e.g. if a product was purchased on our website). For further information on the analysis of data by the CleverReach newsletter, please visit: https://www.cleverreach.com/en/features/reporting-tracking/.

The legal basis for data processing is your consent (Article 6 Paragraph 1(a) GDPR). You can withdraw your consent at any time by unsubscribing from the newsletter. Withdrawal of consent does not affect the legality of data processing carried out previously.

If you do not want CleverReach to perform the data analysis, you must unsubscribe from the newsletter. We provide a link for this in each newsletter. You can also unsubscribe from the newsletter directly on our website.

The consent given by you can be withdrawn at any time. You can also prevent the processing at any time by unsubscribing from the newsletter. You can also prevent the storage of cookies by setting your web browser accordingly. Also, disabling Java Script in your web browser or installing a Java Script Blocker (such as https://noscript.net or https://www.ghostery.com) may prevent you from storing and transferring personal information. We point out that through these measures may no longer all the features of our website are available.

We will store your personal data which we retain for the purposes of sending the newsletter until you are removed from the newsletter service and they will be deleted from our servers and the CleverReach servers after you have unsubscribed from the newsletter. Data we retain for other purposes (e.g. email addresses for the members? area) shall remain unaffected.

For further information, please refer to CleverReach?s privacy policy at: https://www.cleverreach.com/en/privacy-policy/.

 

Our activities in social networks

To allow us to communicate with you on social networks and inform you about our services, we run our own pages on these social networks. If you visit one of our social media pages, we and the provider of the social media network are joint controllers (Art. 26 GDPR) regarding to the processing operations triggered thereby, which concern personal data.

We are not the original provider of these pages, but only use them within the scope of the options offered to us by the respective providers

We would therefore like to point out as a precautionary measure that your data may also be processed outside of the European Union or the European Economic Area. Use of these networks may therefore involve data protection risks for you since the protection of your rights may be difficult, e.g. your rights to information, erasure, objection, etc. Processing on social networks frequently takes place directly for advertising purposes or for the analysis of user behaviour by network providers, and we have no control over this. If the provider creates user profiles, cookies are often used or user behaviour may be assigned directly to your own member profile on the respective social network (if you are logged in).

The processing operations of personal data described are carried out in accordance with Article 6 Paragraph 1(f) GDPR on the basis of our legitimate interests and the legitimate interests of the respective provider in order to communicate with you in a timely manner or to inform you about our services. If you have to grant your consent to the respective providers to process your data as a user, the legal basis for this processing is Article 6 Paragraph 1(a) GDPR in conjunction with Article 7 GDPR.

Since we have no access to these providers? databases, we would like to point out that you would be best placed to exercise your rights (e.g. to information, rectification, erasure, etc.) directly with the respective provider. More information on the processing of your data on social networks and your options for exercising your right to object or your right of revocation (opt out) is listed below for each of the social network providers we use:

Web analytics

Google Analytics Remarketing

We have integrated services by Google Remarketing on this website. Google Remarketing is a Google Ads feature that enables a company to display advertisements to internet users who have previously visited the company's website. Integrating Google Remarketing therefore allows a company to create user-based advertisements and consequently to display advertisements of interest to that particular internet user.

Google Remarketing services are operated by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

The purpose of Google Remarketing is to display advertisements that are relevant to your interests. Google Remarketing allows us to display advertisements that are tailored to the individual needs and interests of internet users through the Google advertising network or on other websites.

Google Remarketing places a cookie on your IT system. Setting cookies enables Google to recognise visitors to our website who subsequently visit websites that are also members of the Google advertising network. Every time you visit a website that has integrated Google Remarketing services, your browser automatically identifies itself to Google. As part of this technical process, Google obtains knowledge of personal data, such as your IP address or browsing behaviour, which Google uses, among other things, to display advertisements relevant to your interests.

Cookies are used to store personal information, such as the websites you visit. Each time you visit our website, this personal data, including your IP address, is transferred to Google in the United States of America. This personal data is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may disclose personal data collected through this technical process to third parties.

As stated above, you can prevent cookies being placed by our website at any time by adjusting your web browser?s settings to permanently refuse cookies. Adjusting the browser?s settings in this way would also prevent Google from placing a cookie on your IT system. In addition, a cookie already placed by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time through a web browser or other software programs.

You also have the option to object to Google's interest-based advertising. To do this, you must visit www.google.com/settings/ads from each of the web browsers you use and adjust the settings there as desired.

These processing operations only take place if express consent is granted in accordance with Article 6 Paragraph 1(a) GDPR.

Additional information and Google's privacy policy can be found at https://www.google.com/policies/privacy.

 

Plugins and other services

Google Maps

We use Google Maps (API) on our website, provided through Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland. Google Maps is a web service for displaying interactive maps to visually display geographic information. For example, by using this service, you can view our location and make it easier for you to reach us.

When you access sub-pages in which a Google Maps map is integrated, information about your use of our website (such as your IP address) is transferred to Google's servers in the US and stored there. This occurs regardless of whether Google provides a user account that you are logged in to or whether you have no user account with them at all. When you are logged in to Google, your information will be directly associated with your account. If you do not want your profile associated with Google, you will need to log out of your Google account. Google stores your data (even for users who are not logged in) as usage profiles and analysis it. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, and you must contact Google to exercise this right.

If you do not agree with the future transmission of your data to Google as part of your use of Google Maps, you have the option of completely deactivating the Google Maps web service by switching off the JavaScript application in your browser. You will then be unable to use Google Maps and therefore the map displayed on this website.

These processing operations only take place if express consent is granted in accordance with Article 6 Paragraph 1(a) GDPR.

The Google terms of use can be found at www.google.com/policies/terms/regional.html, and the additional Google Maps terms of use can be found at https://www.google.com/help/terms_maps/.

Detailed information on data protection with respect to the use of Google Maps is available on Google?s website ("Google Privacy Policy"): https://www.google.com/policies/privacy.

 

YouTube (videos)

We have integrated YouTube components on this website. YouTube is an online video portal that allows video publishers to freely place video clips and allows other to view, rate and comment on videos free of charge. YouTube allows the publication of all types of videos. Both full film and television broadcasts as well as music videos, trailers and user-generated videos are available via the online portal.

YouTube is operated by YouTube LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. YouTube, LLC is a subsidiary of Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

Each time a visitor opens an individual page of the website run by us and on which a YouTube component (YouTube video) is integrated, the YouTube component in question will trigger the browser on your IT system to download a representation of the corresponding YouTube component from YouTube. Additional information on YouTube can be found at https://www.youtube.com/yt/about/. As part of this technical process, YouTube and Google will receive information about the specific sub-page of our website you visit.

If the data subject is logged onto YouTube at the same time as they visit our website, YouTube identifies the specific sub-page of our website your visit when a sub-page containing a YouTube video is accessed. This information is collected through YouTube and Google and assigned to your YouTube account.

Through the YouTube component, YouTube and Google receive information that you have visited our website whenever you are logged in to YouTube at the same time as accessing our website, regardless of whether you click on a YouTube video or not. If you do not want this information transferred to YouTube and Google, you can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account before visiting our website.

These processing operations only take place if express consent is granted in accordance with Article 6 Paragraph 1(a) GDPR.

YouTube's privacy policy, available at https://www.google.com/intl/gb/policies/privacy/, provides information on the collection, processing and use of personal data by YouTube and Google.
