Data Privacy Statement

Basic information on data processing

Thank you for your interest in our website. The protection of your personal data is of paramount concern for us. We therefore want to inform you comprehensively about the information we collect on our websites, the purpose we use it for, who we might make it available to and what rights you have (Art. 12 and Art. 13 of the General Data Protection Regulation – GDPR).

Regulation (EU) 2016/679 (GDPR), which will become effective on May 25, 2018, but still inform you as well about the provisions of the former German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG a. F.), which will continue in force until it is superseded on May 25, 2018 by a new Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG n. F.) with the same name. If we cite provisions of the “BDSG a. F.” below, this applies through May 24, 2018, and the provisions of “BDSG n. F.” as well as the GDPR from May 25, 2018, on. If personal data should be handled with the respective process, we want to signify with a simple parenthetical citation which standard is used to justify the data processing.

1. Object of the data protection

Personal data are the subject of data protection and our privacy policy. This is information pertaining to an identified or identifiable natural person.

To the extent it is not recognizable in this document or due to other circumstances, we are not in a position to identify you.

2. Security

We take internal company data protection very seriously. We contractually obligate our employees and the processors (service companies) we engage to maintain confidentiality and to observe the IT/security rules and the applicable data protection provisions.

We as well as our contractual partners protect your personal data against unauthorized access, loss, use or dissemination and ensure that your personal information is in a legally required, controlled, safe environment which prevents unauthorized accesses, loss or dissemination.

Technical and organizational measures have been undertaken in our company to ensure that our company observes the legal requirements of the BDSG and the GDPR and to protect your data against damage, destruction, corruption, manipulation and unauthorized access.

To avoid unnecessary amounts of data, we process and use your personal data only to the extent this is required within the scope of our range of services.

Data is collected by Lobo Technik GmbH as well as by the processors it engages.

3. Purpose, legal basis and data categories

In general, you are not required to supply personal data when visiting our website. However, from a technical perspective, the IP address transmitted by your system is needed to transmit the data of our website to you. Beyond the freely accessible area of our website - in the context of contact request, for example - we need your personal data, as appropriate, in order to be able to personally respond to you.

4. Collection, storage of usage data during a visit to our website without registration, use of cookies

When you visit our website, we receive your full IP address from your computer. Only with this IP address are we able to transmit the data of our website to you so that the website displays for you (§ 28 (1) first sentence no. 2 BDSG a. F.; Art. 6 (1) b and f GDPR). Beyond the processing for transmission of the called up data, the full IP address is stored for only 7 days in order to be in a position to initiate defensive measures against attacks on our IT, such as a block of IP addresses as well as possible criminal prosecution (§ 28 (1) first sentence no. 2 BDSG a. F.; Art. 6 (1) f GDPR).

We store the date and time of the page view and the page from which you called up our page. We store no other personal data.

If the programming of our website prompts your browser to load data from servers operated by third parties, we are not, as such, involved in these data transmissions. Our third-party suppliers have asked us to inform you of the following:

4a. Google Analytics

We use Google Analytics, a web analytics service of Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; “Google”). Google Analytics employs the cookies described in our Cookie Policy that facilitate analysis of your use of our websites and online services. The information generated on your use of these websites and online offerings—including information on device events, such as crashes, system activity, hardware settings, browser type, browser version, browser language, installed add-ins, screen resolution, device type, date and time of your query and referring URL—are transmitted on our behalf to a server of Google in the United States and stored indefinitely. We use Google Analytics only with the activated IP anonymization extension “_anonymizeIp()”. This means that IP addresses transmitted to Google are truncated and processed in advance by Google on servers residing in the EU in order to exclude a direct identification of an individual through the IP address in the US. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transmitted to a server of Google in the US and then truncated there.

We use this information to analyze visits to the website in order to compile reports about the website activities for us so that we better understand how our site is used and where we can improve it (§ 28 (1) first sentence no. 2 BDSG a. F.; Art. 6 (1) b and f GDPR). Pseudonymous usage profiles can thereby be created from the processed data. Google also transfers this information to third parties where necessary if such is legally required or if third parties process such data on behalf of Google. Google will in no event associate your IP address with other data of Google.

You can find further information on data usage for advertising purposes through Google, setting options and ways to object on the websites of Google: www.google.com/intl/de/policies/privacy/partners/ (“How Google uses data when you use our partners' sites or apps”), www.google.com/policies/technologies/ads (“Data usage for advertising purposes”), www.google.de/settings/ads (“Control the information Google uses to show you ads”) and www.google.com/ads/preferences/ (“Make the ads you see more useful to you”).

You have a right to object and you can prevent the installation and storage of the cookie for Google Analytics through a corresponding setting in your browser. You can find details in your browser under Help. In addition, you can prevent collection, for Google, of the data that is generated by the cookie and related to your use of the online offering as well as the processing of such data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in of Google available at the following link tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout .

An opt-out cookie will be set to prevent the collection of your data when visiting this website in the future. With this browser plug-in, the collection and storage of data for Google Analytics can also be objected to at any time with future effect.

4b. Google Maps

We use Google Maps on the website in order to make orientation easier for you. Google Maps is a service of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”). When viewing the contact pages, your web browser is instructed to load the functions and map data needed for this directly from the server of Google. These servers may reside in the United States or other countries of the world. We have no control options for this and receive no information from Google about whether you have exchanged corresponding map information during your visit to our page. We are not aware whether Google only delivers the technically necessary information to you or stores and analyzes further data about you or your system, such as IP addresses, information about your browser or the like. The Google Privacy Policy ( www.google.com/intl/de/policies/privacy/index.html ) also applies to Google Maps. We expressly indicate here that Google processes the following categories of data: device-related information, IP address, hardware settings, browser type, browser language, date and time of your query and referring URL, cookies (blockable by you in the browser settings, see also above), location-based information. Google can link the data with other data from you and uses the data collected in the course of the services for provisioning, maintenance, protection and improvement of the Google services, for the development of new services as well as to protect Google and its users. Moreover, Google uses this data to offer you customized content—for example, to provide you more relevant search results and advertising. Using data collected through cookies and other technologies, such as pixel tags, Google improves your user experience and the quality of Google services as a whole. For example, Google facilitates the storage of your preferred language setting in order to display services in the language you prefer. Before Google uses information for purposes other than those listed by Google in the Google Privacy Policy, Google will ask you for your consent. With your consent, Google also shares data with third parties for contract data processing and for legal reasons. You can also change settings related to data privacy at Google when you log in there. In addition, Google abides by various self-regulation obligations, including that of the EU-US Privacy Shield Framework, and processes complaints.

4c. YouTube

We use embedded YouTube videos in the extended data protection mode. YouTube is a service from Google Inc., Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. YouTube makes this extended data protection mode available and thus ensures that YouTube saves no cookies with personal data on your computer. When calling up the website and to embed the video, the IP address is transferred. This address cannot be correlated provided you have not logged in to YouTube or another Google service prior to calling up the site or if are permanently logged in. As soon as you start playing an embedded video by clicking Start, the extended data protection mode means that YouTube only saves cookies on your computer that contain no personally identifiable data. These cookies can be prevented with the relevant browser settings and extensions (source: YouTube "Activate the extended data protection mode for embedded videos").

Please find further information on embedding YouTube videos at YouTube information page.

5. Storage periods

If no express storage period is indicated upon collection (for instance, as part of a declaration of consent), personal data is deleted when it is no longer required for fulfilling the purpose of storage unless legal retention obligations (such as commercial and tax retention obligations) preclude deletion.

6. Your rights to information, correction, blocking, deletion, completion, restriction and data portability

You can, without charge and without giving reasons, obtain information about whether your personal data is processed. Pursuant to Art. 15 GDPR and §§ 34 BDSG n. F., you have the right to information about this personal data and to further information on the processing of your data stored with us.

As part of your legal rights under Art.16, Art. 17 GDPR and §35 BDSG, you can have your data which is stored with us blocked, corrected or deleted.

Your personal data is deleted if no legal retention requirements stand in the way and you request deletion in writing.

Furthermore, you have the right to have incomplete data completed and to demand the curtailment of processing in the statutorily regulated cases in Art. 18 GDPR if the personal data is incorrect.

You also have a right to data portability pursuant to Art. 20 GDPR if we have mentioned Art. 6 (1) a or b GDPR or Art. 9 (2) a GDPR in this declaration as a basis of the data processing. When exercising the right to data portability, you have the right to demand that the personal data be transmitted directly from the controller of the data file to another controller of the data file if this is technically feasible.

7. Revocation rights

You can, at any time with future effect and without stating reasons, revoke the consents you have given us to collect and use data without thereby affecting the lawfulness of the processing that took place based on the consent up through the revocation. After revocation has occurred, Lobo Technik GmbH may further process your personal data only if the processing is required because of another legal basis or statutory obligation. You can address your revocation to controllers or to the contact address indicated in the site notice. If technically possible, we will also make revocation options available to you in your account.
