Data protection

Data protection statement of Rupp + Hubrach Optik GmbH

We are delighted that you are interested in our company. Data protection is of a particularly high priority for the management of Rupp + Hubrach Optik GmbH. The use of the Internet pages of Rupp + Hubrach Optik GmbH is possible without any indication of personal data. If, however, a data subject wants to use particular services via our website, the processing of personal data could become necessary. Should the processing of personal data be necessary and there is no legal 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 will always be in line with the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), and in accordance with the specific national data protection regulations applicable to Rupp + Hubrach Optik GmbH. By means of this data protection statement, our company wishes to inform the general public of the nature, scope, and purpose of the personal data we collect, use and process. Furthermore, this data protection statement serves to inform data subjects of the rights to which they are entitled.

As the controller, Rupp + Hubrach Optik GmbH has implemented numerous technical and organisational 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

The data protection statement of Rupp + Hubrach Optik GmbH is based on the terms used by the European legislator for the adoption of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Our data protection statement 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.

In this data protection statement, we use, inter alia, the following terms:

a)  Personal data

Personal data means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (“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 factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.

b)   Data subject

Data subject is any identified or identifiable natural person, whose personal data is processed by the controller responsible for the processing.

c)  Processing

Processing is any operation or set of operations which is performed on personal data or on sets of personal data, with or without the aid of automated procedures, such as collection, recording, organisation, structuring, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.

d)  Restriction of processing

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

e)    Profiling

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 analyse or predict aspects concerning that natural person’s performance at work, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behaviour, location or movements.

f)    Pseudonymisation

Pseudonymisation is 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 organisational measures to ensure that the personal data is not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.

g)   Controller or controller responsible for the processing

Controller or controller responsible for the processing is the natural or legal entity, 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.

h)    Auftragsverarbeiter

Processor is a natural or legal entity, public authority, agency or other body which processes personal data on behalf of the controller.

i)     Recipient

Recipient is a natural or legal entity, public authority, agency or another body, to which the personal data is disclosed, whether a third party or not. However, public authorities which may receive personal data in the framework of a particular inquiry in accordance with Union or Member State law are not regarded as recipients.

j)      Third party

Third party is a natural or legal entity, public authority, agency or body other than the data subject, controller, processor and persons, who, under the direct authority of the controller or processor, is authorised to process personal data. With regard to a company of Rupp + Hubrach Optik GmbH, the companies affiliated with this company are not considered third parties.

k)    Consent

Consent of the data subject is any freely given, specific, informed and unambiguous indication of the data subject’s wishes by which he or she, by a statement or by a clear affirmative action, signifies agreement to the processing of personal data relating to him or her.

4. Cookies

The Internet pages of Rupp + Hubrach Optik GmbH 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 data subject from other Internet browsers that contain other cookies. A specific Internet browser can be recognised and identified using the unique cookie ID.

Through the use of cookies, Rupp + Hubrach Optik GmbH 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 optimised with the user in mind. Cookies allow us, as previously mentioned, to recognise our website users. The purpose of this recognition is to make it easier for users to utilise our website. The user of a website that uses cookies does not, for example, have to enter access data each time the website is accessed as this is taken over by the website and the cookie 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 can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time by changing the relevant setting in the Internet browser used, thus permanently suppressing the saving 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.

5. Collection of general data and information

The website of Rupp + Hubrach Optik GmbH collects a series of general data and information when a data subject or automated system calls up the website. This general data and information is stored in the server log files. The information 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 which are accessed via an accessing system on our website, (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 which serve to avert risks in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.

When using this general data and information, Rupp + Hubrach Optik GmbH does not draw any conclusions about the data subject. Rather, this information is needed to (1) deliver the content of our website correctly, (2) optimise 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, Rupp + Hubrach Optik GmbH analyses anonymously collected data and information statistically, with the aim of increasing the data protection and data security within our company, and to ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data we process. The anonymous data of the server log files is stored separately from all personal data provided by a data subject.

6. Registration on our website

The data subject has the possibility of registering on the website of the controller by providing personal data. Which personal data is transmitted to the controller is determined by the respective input mask used for the registration. The personal data entered by the data subject is collected and stored exclusively for internal use by the controller, and for his or her own purposes. The controller may request transfer to one or more processors (e.g. a parcel service) that also use personal data for an internal purpose which is attributable to the controller.

By registering on the website of the controller, the IP address—assigned by the Internet service provider (ISP) and used by the data subject—date, and time of the registration are also stored. The storage of this data takes place against the background that this is the only way to prevent the misuse of our services, and, if necessary, to make it possible to investigate committed offences.  In this respect, the storage of this data is necessary to safeguard the controller. This data is not passed on to third parties unless there is a statutory obligation to pass on the data, or if the transfer serves the aim of criminal prosecution.

The registration of the data subject, with the voluntary provision of personal data, is intended to enable the controller to offer the data subject contents or services that may only be offered to registered users due to the nature of the matter in question. Registered persons are free to change the personal data specified during the registration at any time, or to have it completely deleted from the database of the controller.

At any time and upon request, the controller shall provide information to each data subject as to what personal data is stored about the data subject. In addition, the controller shall correct or erase personal data at the request or indication of the data subject, insofar as there are no statutory storage obligations. The data protection officer designated in this data protection statement, as well as all of the controller’s employees are available to the data subject in this respect as contact persons.

7. Remote services for measuring instruments, customer portal and customer software

Remote Access is used to remotely access a computer or network. Our business partners are offered this remote service subject to their consent. In the business partners’ own interests, Rupp + Hubrach recommends closing all programs and applications that are not related to the remote services. All regulations for the protection of personal data familiar from order data processing must also be applied and ensured for remote maintenance.

8. Subscription to our newsletter

On the website of Rupp + Hubrach Optik GmbH, users are given the opportunity to subscribe to our company’s newsletter. What personal data is transmitted to the controller when the newsletter is ordered is determined by the input mask used for this purpose.

Rupp + Hubrach Optik GmbH informs its customers and business partners about company offers regularly by means of a newsletter. Our company’s newsletter may only be received by the data subject if (1) the data subject has a valid e-mail address and (2) the data subject registers to receive the newsletter. For legal reasons, when an e-mail address is first entered for the purpose of receiving the newsletter, a confirmation e-mail is sent using the double opt-in procedure. This confirmation e-mail is used to check whether the owner of the e-mail address has authorised receipt of the newsletter as the data subject.

During registration for the newsletter, we also store the IP address of the computer system assigned by the Internet service provider (ISP) and used by the data subject when registering, as well as the date and time of the registration. This data must be collected in order to be able to trace back any (possible) misuse of the e-mail address of a data subject at a later date, and is therefore used for the legal protection of the controller.

The personal data collected when registering for the newsletter is used solely for the dispatch of our newsletter. Furthermore, subscribers to the newsletter may be informed via e-mail, insofar as this is necessary for the operation of the newsletter service or a registration in this respect, as may be the case when changes are made to the newsletter offer or when the technical conditions are altered. There is no transfer of personal data collected by the newsletter service to third parties. Subscription to our newsletter may be cancelled by the data subject at any time. Consent to the storage of personal data, which has been granted to us by the data subject, can be revoked at any time. A corresponding link is found in each newsletter for the purpose of revoking consent. It is also possible to unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time directly on the controller’s website, or by communicating this to the controller in a different manner.

9. Newsletter-Tracking

The newsletter of Rupp + Hubrach Optik GmbH contains so-called tracking pixels. A tracking pixel is a miniature graphic embedded in e-mails sent in HTML format to enable log file recording and analysis. This allows a statistical evaluation of the success or failure of online marketing campaigns to be carried out. With the embedded tracking pixel, Rupp + Hubrach Optik GmbH can see if and when an e-mail was opened by a data subject, and which links in the e-mail were called up by the data subject.

Such personal data collected via the tracking pixels contained in the newsletters is stored and evaluated by the controller in order to optimise the dispatch of the newsletter and to adapt the content of future newsletters even better to the interests of the data subject. This personal data is not passed on to third parties. Data subjects are entitled at any time to revoke the respective separate declaration of consent given via the double opt-in procedure. After revocation, this personal data is deleted by the controller. Rupp + Hubrach Optik GmbH automatically interprets unsubscribing from the newsletter as revocation.

10. Contact possibility via the website

In accordance with statutory regulations, the website of Rupp + Hubrach Optik GmbH contains information that enables fast electronic contact to our company, as well as direct communication with us, including a general address of what is known as electronic mail (e-mail address). If a data subject contacts the controller by e-mail or via a contact form, the personal data transmitted by the data subject will be stored automatically. Such personal data transmitted on a voluntary basis by a data subject to the controller will be stored for the purpose of processing or contacting the data subject. This personal data is not passed on to third parties.

11. Routine erasure and blocking of personal data

The controller shall process and store the personal data of the data subject only for the time necessary to achieve the data retention purpose, or to the extent provided for by the European legislator or other legislators in laws or regulations to which the controller is subject.

If the storage purpose ceases to apply, or if a storage period prescribed by the European legislator or another competent legislator expires, the personal data is routinely blocked or erased in accordance with legal requirements.

12.Rights of the data subject

a)     Right of confirmation

Every data subject has the right granted by the European legislator to obtain from the controller confirmation as to whether or not personal data concerning him or her is being processed. If a data subject wishes to exercise this right of confirmation, he or she may, at any time, contact one of the controller’s employees.

b)     Right of access

Every data subject has the right granted by the European legislator to obtain, at any time and free of charge, information from the controller about personal data relating to him or her stored, and a copy of this information. Furthermore, the European legislator has granted the data subject access to the following information:

 

  • the purposes of the processing
  • the categories of personal data being processed
  • the recipients or categories of recipients to whom the personal data has been or will be disclosed, in particular recipients in third countries or international organisations
  • where possible, the envisaged period for which the personal data will be stored, or, if this is not possible, the criteria used to determine that period

  • the existence of automated decision-making, including profiling, referred to in Article 22(1) and (4) of the GDPR and, at least in those cases, meaningful information about the logic involved, as well as the significance and envisaged consequences of such processing for the data subject

 

Furthermore, the data subject has a right to obtain information as to whether personal data is transferred to a third country or to an international organisation. Where this is the case, the data subject has the right to be informed of the appropriate safeguards relating to the transfer.

If a data subject wishes to exercise this right of access, he or she may, at any time, contact one of the controller’s employees.

c)    Right to rectification

Every data subject has the right granted by the European legislator to obtain from the controller without undue delay the rectification of inaccurate personal data concerning him or her. Furthermore, taking into account the purposes of the processing, the data subject has the right to request completion of incomplete personal data, including by means of providing a supplementary statement.

If a data subject wishes to exercise this right to rectification, he or she may, at any time, contact one of the controller’s employees.

d)    Right to erasure (right to be forgotten)

Every data subject has the right granted by the European legislator to obtain from the controller the erasure of personal data concerning him or her without undue delay, which is subject to one of the following conditions and to the extent that the processing is not necessary:

 

  • The personal data is no longer necessary in relation to the purposes for which it was collected or otherwise processed.
  • The data subject withdraws consent on which the processing is based according to Article 6(1) lit. a) of the GDPR, or Article 9(2) lit. a) of the GDPR, and there is no other legal ground for the processing.
  • The data subject objects to the processing pursuant to Article 21(1) of the GDPR and there are no overriding legitimate grounds for the processing, or the data subject objects to the processing pursuant to Article 21(2) of the GDPR.
  • The personal data has been unlawfully processed.
  • The personal data must be erased to comply with a legal obligation in Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject.
  • The personal data has been collected in relation to the offer of information society services referred to in Article 8(1) of the GDPR.

 

If one of the aforementioned reasons applies, and a data subject wishes to request the erasure of personal data stored by Rupp + Hubrach Optik GmbH, he or she may, at any time, contact one of the controller’s employees. The employee of Rupp + Hubrach Optik GmbH will ensure that the erasure request is complied with immediately.

Where Rupp + Hubrach Optik GmbH has made personal data public and our company as controller is obliged pursuant to Article 17(1) of the GDPR to erase the personal data, Rupp + Hubrach Optik GmbH, taking account of available technology and the cost of implementation, will take reasonable steps, including technical measures, to inform other controllers processing personal data that the data subject has requested erasure by such controllers of any links to, or copy or replication of, that personal data, to the extent that processing is not required. The employee of Rupp + Hubrach Optik GmbH will take the necessary steps in individual cases.

e)    Right of restriction of processing

Every data subject has the right granted by the European legislator to obtain from the controller the restriction of processing personal data concerning him or her where one of the following conditions applies:

If one of the aforementioned conditions applies, and a data subject wishes to demand restriction of the processing of personal data stored by Rupp + Hubrach Optik GmbH, he or she may, at any time, contact one of the controller’s employees. The employee of Rupp + Hubrach Optik GmbH will initiate the restriction of processing.

  • The accuracy of the personal data is contested by the data subject, for a period enabling the controller to verify the accuracy of the personal data.
  • The processing is unlawful and the data subject opposes the erasure of the personal data and requests instead the restriction of its use.
  • The controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of the processing, but it is required by the data subject for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.
  • The data subject has objected to processing pursuant to Article 21(1) of the GDPR pending the verification whether the legitimate grounds of the controller override those of the data subject.

 

f)     Right to data portability

Every data subject has the right granted by the European legislator to receive in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format, the personal data concerning him or her, which was provided to a controller. They also have the right to transmit that data to another controller without hindrance from the controller to which the personal data has been provided, as long as the processing is based on consent pursuant to Article 6(1) lit. a) of the GDPR or Article 9(2) lit. a) of the GDPR, or on a contract pursuant to Article 6(1) lit. b) of the GDPR, and the processing is carried out by automated means, as long as the processing is not necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller.

Furthermore, in exercising his or her right to data portability pursuant to Article 20(1) of the GDPR, the data subject has the right to have personal data transmitted directly from one controller to another, where technically feasible and when doing so does not adversely affect the rights and freedoms of others.

In order to assert the right to data portability, the data subject may at any time contact an employee of Rupp + Hubrach Optik GmbH.

g)    Right to object

Every data subject has the right granted by the European legislator to object, on grounds relating to his or her particular situation, at any time, to processing of personal data concerning him or her, which is based on Article 6(1) lit. e) or f) of the GDPR. This also applies to profiling based on these provisions.

In the event of such objection, Rupp + Hubrach Optik GmbH shall no longer process the personal data unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject, or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.

If Rupp + Hubrach Optik GmbH processes personal data for direct marketing purposes, the data subject shall have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning him or her for such marketing. This rule applies to profiling to the extent that it is related to such direct marketing. If the data subject objects to the processing for direct marketing purposes, Rupp + Hubrach Optik GmbH will no longer process the personal data for these purposes.

The data subject also has the right, on grounds relating to his or her particular situation, to object to the processing of personal data concerning him or her by Rupp + Hubrach Optik GmbH for any scientific or historical research purposes, as well as for statistical purposes as outlined in Article 89(1) of the GDPR, unless the processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out for reasons of public interest.

To exercise the right to object, the data subject may contact an employee of Rupp + Hubrach Optik GmbH or another employee. In addition, the data subject is free in the context of the use of information society services, and notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC, to use his or her right to object by automated means using technical specifications.

h)    Automated individual decision-making, including profiling

Every data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects concerning him or her, or similarly significantly affects him or her, as long as the decision (1) is not necessary for entering into, or the performance of, a contract between the data subject and a controller, or (2) is not authorised by Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject and which also lays down suitable measures to safeguard the data subject’s rights and freedoms and legitimate interests, or (3) is not based on the data subject’s explicit consent.

If the decision (1) is necessary for entering into, or the performance of, a contract between the data subject and a controller, or (2) is based on the data subject’s explicit consent, Rupp + Hubrach Optik GmbH will implement suitable measures to safeguard the data subject’s rights and freedoms and legitimate interests, at least the right to obtain human intervention on the part of the controller, to express his or her point of view and contest the decision.

If the data subject wishes to exercise the rights concerning automated individual decision-making, he or she may directly contact an employee of the controller at any time.

i)      Right to withdraw data protection consent

Every data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator to withdraw his or her consent to processing of his or her personal data at any time.

If the data subject wishes to exercise the right to withdraw the consent, he or she may directly contact an employee of the controller at any time.

13. Data protection for applications and the application procedures

The 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 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 6 months after notification of the refusal decision, provided that no other legitimate interests of the controller are opposed to the erasure.

 

14. Privacy policy for the use and application of etracker

The controller has integrated etracker components into this website. etracker is a web analysis service. Web analysis is the gathering, collection and evaluation of data on the behaviour of visitors to websites. Among other things, a web analysis service collects data on the Internet site from which a data subject has arrived at another website (known as a “referrer”), which subpages of the website were accessed, or how often and for how long a subpage was viewed. A web analysis is mainly used to optimise a website and to analyse the costs and benefits of Internet advertising.

etracker is operated by etracker GmbH, Erste Brunnenstraße 1, 20459 Hamburg, Germany.

etracker sets a cookie on the data subject’s information technology system. What cookies are has already been explained above. Each time one of the individual pages of this website is accessed, which is operated by the data controller and into which an etracker component has been integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically prompted by the respective etracker component to transmit data to etracker for marketing and optimisation purposes. As part of this technical process, etracker obtains knowledge of data that is subsequently used to create pseudonymous user profiles. The user profiles obtained in this way serve to analyse the behaviour of the data subject who accessed the controller’s website and are evaluated with the aim of improving and optimising the website. The data collected via the etracker component will not be used to identify the data subject without the data subject’s prior consent. This data will not be merged with personal data or with other data containing the same pseudonym.

The data subject can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time, as described above, by means of an appropriate setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent etracker from setting a cookie on the information data subject’s technology system. In addition, cookies already set by etracker can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs.

Furthermore, the data subject may object to the collection of data generated by the etracker cookie and relating to the use of this website, and to the processing of this data by etracker and prevent such collection. To do this, the data subject must press the cookie-set button under the link www.etracker.de/privacy which sets an opt-out cookie. The opt-out cookie set with the objection is stored on the data subject’s information technology system. If the cookies on the data subject’s system are deleted after an objection, the data subject must call up the link again and set a new opt-out cookie.

However, when the opt-out cookie is set, it is possible that the controller’s Internet pages may no longer be fully usable by the data subject.

etracker’s current privacy policy can be found at www.etracker.com/de/datenschutz.html 

 

15. Privacy policy for the use and application of Facebook

The controller has integrated components of the Facebook company into this website. Facebook is a social network.

A social network is a place for social meetings on the Internet, an online community which usually allows users to communicate with each other and interact in a virtual space. A social network may serve as a platform for the exchange of opinions and experiences, or enable the Internet community to provide personal or business-related information. Facebook allows social network users to include the creation of private profiles, upload photos, and network through friend requests.

Facebook is operated by Facebook, Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, United States. If a data subject lives outside the United States or Canada, the controller is Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland.

Each time one of the individual pages of this website is accessed, which is operated by the controller and into which a Facebook component (Facebook plug-in) has been integrated, the Internet browser on the data subject’s information technology system is automatically prompted to download display of the corresponding Facebook component from Facebook through the Facebook component. An overview of all the Facebook Plug-ins may be accessed under https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/?locale=de_DE. During the course of this technical procedure, Facebook is made aware of what specific subpage of our website was visited by the data subject.

If the data subject is logged in at the same time on Facebook, Facebook detects with every call-up to our website by the data subject—and for the entire duration of their stay on our Internet site—which specific subpage of our Internet page was visited by the data subject. This information is collected through the Facebook component and assigned to the data subject’s respective Facebook account. If the data subject clicks on one of the Facebook buttons integrated into our website, such as the “Like” button, or if the data subject submits a comment, then Facebook matches this information with the data subject’s personal Facebook user account and stores the personal data.

Facebook always receives information about a visit to our website by the data subject through the Facebook component whenever the data subject is logged in to Facebook when calling up our website. This occurs regardless of whether the data subject clicks on the Facebook component or not. If the data subject does not wish such a transmission of information to Facebook to take place, then he or she may prevent this by logging off from his or her Facebook account before calling up our website.

The data protection guideline published by Facebook, which is available at https://de-de.facebook.com/about/privacy  provides information about the collection, processing and use of personal data by Facebook. In addition, there is an explanation of the setting options Facebook offers to protect the data subject’s privacy. Different configuration options are also made available to allow the elimination of data transmission to Facebook. The data subject may use these applications to eliminate data transmission to Facebook.

When you are redirected from our homepage to the Rupp + Hubrach Facebook fan page, please refer to our data protection statement under About > Further Info > Privacy Policy.

16. Privacy policy for the use and application of images from Getty Images

The controller has integrated components of the Getty Images company into this website. Getty Images is an American stock photo agency. A stock photo agency is a company that offers images and other visual material on the market. Stock photo agencies usually market photographs, illustrations and film material. Various customers, in particular Internet site operators, editors of print and TV media and advertising agencies, license the images they use through a stock photo agency.

Getty Images components is operated by Getty Images International, 1st Floor, The Herbert Building, The Park, Carrickmines, Dublin 18, Ireland.

Getty Images allows the (possibly free) embedding of stock images. Embedding is the incorporation or integration of certain external content, such as text, video or image data, provided by a third party website and then appearing on a company’s own website. An embedding code is used for embedding. An embedding code is an HTML code that is integrated into a website by an Internet site operator. If an embedding code has been integrated by an Internet site operator, the external content of the other Internet site will, by default, immediately be displayed as soon as a website is visited. To display the external content, it is loaded directly from the other website. Getty Images provides more information about embedding content at www.gettyimages.de/resources/embed.

Through the technical implementation of the embedding code that enables the display of Getty Images photo material, the IP address of the Internet connection through which the data subject accesses our website is transmitted to Getty Images. In addition, Getty Images records our website, the browser type used, the browser language, the time and length of the access. Furthermore, Getty Images may collect navigational information, i.e. information about which of our subpages the data subject visited and which links were clicked, as well as other interactions of the data subject while visiting our website. This data can be stored and evaluated by Getty Images.

Additional information and the current privacy policy of Getty Images can be found at  unter www.gettyimages.de/enterprise/privacy-policy.

17.  Privacy policy for the use and application of Google Analytics (with anonymisation feature)

The controller has integrated the Google Analytics component (with anonymisation function) into this website. Google Analytics is a web analysis service. Web analysis is the gathering, collection and evaluation of data on the behaviour of visitors to websites. Among other things, a web analysis service collects data on the Internet site from which a data subject has arrived at another website (known as a “referrer”), which subpages of the website were accessed, or how often and for how long a subpage was viewed. A web analysis is mainly used to optimise a website and to analyse the costs and benefits of Internet advertising.

The Google Analytics component is operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

The controller uses the addition "_gat._anonymizeIp" for web analysis via Google Analytics. By means of this addendum, the IP address of the Internet access of the data subject is truncated and anonymised by Google if the access to our website is from a Member State of the European Union or from another state party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.

The purpose of the Google Analytics component is to analyse visitor flows on our website. Among other things, Google uses data and information obtained to evaluate the use of our website to put together online reports about activities on our website for us and in order to provide us with further services related to the use of our website.

Google Analytics sets a cookie on the data subject’s information technology system. What cookies are has already been explained above. Setting the cookie allows Google to analyse the use of our website. Each time one of the individual pages of this website is accessed, which is operated by the controller and into which a Google Analytics component has been integrated, the Internet browser on the data subject’s information technology system is automatically prompted by the respective Google Analytics component to transmit data to Google for the purpose of online analysis. As part of this technical process, Google becomes aware of personal data, such as the data subject’s IP address. This is then used by Google to track the origin of the visitors and clicks, for example, and enable the calculation of commissions as a result.

Cookies are used to save personal information, such as the access time, the location from which the website was accessed and the frequency of the data subject’s visits. Every time our website is visited, this personal data, including the IP address of the internet connection used by the data subject, is transmitted to Google in the United States. This personal data is saved by Google in the United States of America. Under some circumstances, Google may pass such personal data collected by means of the technical process on to third parties.

The data subject can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time, as described above, by means of an appropriate setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Changing this setting in the Internet browser used will also prevent Google from setting a cookie on the data subject’s information technology system. In addition, a cookie already set by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs.

Furthermore, the data subject has the option of objecting to and preventing the recording of data generated by Google Analytics about the use of this website and the processing of this data by Google. To do this, the person must download and install a browser add-on from tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.This browser add-on uses JavaScript to inform Google Analytics that no data and information on website visits may be transmitted to Google Analytics. Google interprets the installation of the browser add-on as an objection. If the data subject's information technology system is deleted, formatted or reinstalled at a later date, the data subject must re-install the browser add-on in order to disable Google Analytics. If the browser add-on is uninstalled or disabled by the data subject or other person with the authority to do so, the browser add-on can be reinstalled or enabled.

Further information and Google’s current privacy policy can be found at  www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/ and at www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html.

21. Privacy policy on the use and application of evaluation tools on the homepage

The website of Rupp + Hubrach Optik GmbH contains a tool for questioning users about their satisfaction with the website. The purpose of this survey is to evaluate the website with a view to improving user-friendliness. The rating given here is anonymous and is stored indefinitely. All the rights listed in point 12 (Rights of the data subject) shall apply. We ask every user NOT to transfer any personal data in the text field.

22. Legal basis for processing data

Article 6(1) lit. a) of the GDPR 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 is necessary for the supply of goods or to provide any other service, the processing is based on Article 6(1) lit. b) of the GDPR. The same applies to such processing operations which are necessary for carrying out pre-contractual measures, such as in the case of inquiries concerning our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation by which processing of personal data is required, such as for the fulfilment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6(1) lit. c) GDPR. 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 needed to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Then the processing would be based on Art. 6(1) lit. d) GDPR. Finally, processing operations could be based on Article 6(1) lit. f) of the GDPR. This legal basis is used for processing operations which are not covered by any of the above-mentioned legal bases, if processing is necessary for the purposes of protecting the legitimate interests of our company or of a third party, except where such interests are overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject. Such processing operations are permitted, in particular, because they are specifically mentioned by the European legislator, who takes the view that a legitimate interest may be assumed if the data subject is a client of the controller (Recital 47 sentence 2 of the GDPR).

23. Legitimate interests in the processing which are pursued by the controller or a third party

Where the processing of personal data is based on Article 6(1) lit. f) of the GDPR, our legitimate interest is to carry out our business in the interests of the welfare of all our employees and our shareholders.

24.  Period for which the personal data is stored

The criterion for the period of storage of personal data is the respective statutory retention period. After expiration of that period, the corresponding data is erased as a matter of routine, as long as it is no longer necessary for the fulfilment or initiation of a contract.

25. Statutory or contractual regulations on the provision of personal data; requirement for contract conclusion; obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data; potential consequences of non-compliance

We inform you that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or may result from contractual provisions (e.g. information on the contractual partner). In order to conclude a contract, it may be necessary for the data subject to provide us with personal data which we then have to process. The data subject is, for example, obliged to provide us with personal data when our company signs a contract with him or her. Failure to provide the personal data would mean that the contract could not be concluded with the data subject. Before personal data is provided by the data subject, the data subject must contact one of our employees. Our employee informs the data subject on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or contract, or is necessary for the conclusion of a contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and what consequences failure to provide the personal data would have.

26.  Place of processing

Personal data may be passed on to third parties for the purpose of fulfilling an order. In accordance with the principle of data minimisation, only data necessary for the performance of the agreed service will be passed on to these third parties. All regulations on the protection of personal data known from order data processing in accordance with the GDPR must also be applied and ensured in the case of any subcontractors. The same applies to third countries.

 

27.  The existence of automated decision-making

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

This data protection statement was created by the data protection statement generator of the Kiel external data protection officer in cooperation with RC GmbH, which recycles used notebooks, the file-sharing lawyers of WBS LAW and modified by Rupp + Hubrach Optik GmbH.
