4. Cookies

The internet pages of IBP uses cookies. Cookies are text files that are stored and saved on a computer system via an internet browser.

Many websites 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 string through which internet pages and servers can be assigned to the specific internet browser in which the cookie was stored. This allows visited websites and servers to distinguish the individual’s browser from other internet browsers that contain other cookies. A particular web browser can be recognized and identified by the unique cookie ID.

Through the use of cookies, IBP can provide users of this website with more user-friendly services that would not be possible without cookies. By means of a cookie the information and offers on our website can be optimized in the sense of the user. Cookies enable us to recognize the users of our website. The purpose of this recognition is to make it easier for users to use our website. For example, the user of a website that uses cookies doesn’t need to re-enter their credentials each time they visit the website, as this is done by the website and the cookie stored on the user’s computer system. Another example is the cookie of a shopping basket in the online shop. The online store keeps track of the items that a customer has placed in the virtual shopping cart, through a cookie.

The data subject can prevent the setting of cookies through our website at any time by means of a corresponding setting of the internet browser used and thus permanently contradict the setting of cookies. Furthermore, already set cookies can be deleted at any time via an internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in all common internet browsers. If the data subject deactivates the setting of cookies in the internet browser used, not all functions of our website may be fully usable. 

5. Collection of data and information

12Privacy notes on the use of cookies, plug-ins, social – media applications and online advertising

a) Facebook

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

A social network is an internet-based social meeting place, an online community that typically allows users to communicate with each other and interact in virtual space. A social network can serve as a platform to exchange views and experiences, or allows the internet community to provide personal or business information. Facebook allows social network users to create private profiles, upload photos and socialize via friend requests. 

The operating company of Facebook is Facebook, Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA. Persons responsible for the processing of personal data, if an affected person lives outside the US or Canada, are Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbor, Dublin 2, Ireland. 

Each visit to one of the individual pages of this website, which is operated by the controller and on which a Facebook component (Facebook plug-in) has been integrated, the internet browser on the information technology system of the person concerned automatically by the respective Facebook component causes a representation of the corresponding Facebook component of Facebook to download. An overview of all Facebook plug-ins can be found at https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/?locale=en_US. As part of this technical process, Facebook receives information about which specific underside of our website is visited by the person concerned.

If the data subject is simultaneously logged into Facebook, Facebook recognizes with each visit to our website by the data subject and during the entire duration of the respective stay on our website, which specific underside of our website the data subject visits. This information is collected through the Facebook component and assigned by Facebook to the respective Facebook account of the data subject. If the person concerned activates one of the Facebook buttons integrated on our website, for example the “Like” button, or if the person concerned makes a comment, Facebook assigns this information to the personal Facebook user account of the person concerned and saves this personal data.

Facebook always receives information via the Facebook component that the data subject has visited our website if the data subject is logged in to Facebook at the same time as accessing our website; this happens regardless of whether the person clicks on the Facebook component or not. If such a transfer of this information to Facebook is not wanted by the data subject, it can prevent the transfer by logging out of their Facebook account before calling our website.

The data policy published by Facebook, which is available at https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/update?ref=old_policy, provides information on the collection, processing and use of personal data by Facebook. It also explains which options Facebook offers to protect the privacy of the data subject.

As a Facebook member, you can also edit your account settings at https://www.facebook.com/ads/website_custom_audiences/ and opt out of cross-device data collection via Custom Audiences. For more information on Facebook’s privacy policy, please visit: https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/update?ref=old_policy.

You can find the option to opt-out here: https://www.facebook.com/policies/cookies/ and here: http://www.youronlinechoices.com/de/praferenzmanagement/. 

b. Google Analytics (with anonymization function)

The controller has integrated on this website the component Google Analytics (with anonymization function). Google Analytics is a web analytics service. Web analysis is the collection and analysis of data about the behaviour of visitors to websites. Among other things, a web analysis service collects data on which website an affected person has come to a website (so-called referrers), which subpages of the website were accessed or how often and for which length of stay a subpage was viewed. A web analysis is mainly used to optimize a website and cost-benefit analysis of Internet advertising.

The operating company of the Google Analytics component is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

The controller uses the addition “_gat._anonymizeIp” for web analytics via Google Analytics. By means of this addendum, the IP address of the Internet access of the data subject will be shortened 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. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the US and shortened there. This data transfer is based on a corresponding EU-US Privacy Shield certification from Google, which can be viewed at the following address: https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI. 

The purpose of the Google Analytics component is to analyze visitor flows on our website. Among other things, Google uses the data and information obtained to evaluate the use of our website, to compile for us online reports showing the activities on our websites, and to provide other services related to the use of our website.

Google Analytics uses a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. What cookies are, has already been explained above. By using this cookie Google is enabled to analyze the usage of our website. Each time one of the pages of this website is accessed by the controller and a Google Analytics component has been integrated, the internet browser on the information technology system of the person concerned is automatically initiated by the respective Google Analytics component to submit data to Google for online analysis purposes. As part of this technical process, Google will be aware of personal data, such as the IP address of the person concerned, which serve, among other things, Google to track the origin of the visitors and clicks, and subsequently make commission settlements possible.

The cookie stores personally identifiable information, such as access time, the location from which access was made, and the frequency of site visits by the data subject. Each time you visit our website, your personal information, including the IP address of the internet connection used by the data subject, is transferred to Google in the United States of America. This personal information is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may transfer such personal data collected through the technical process to third parties. 

The affected person can prevent the setting of cookies through our website, as shown above, at any time by means of a corresponding setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently contradict the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent Google from setting a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. 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 contradiction and preventing the collection of the data generated by Google Analytics for the use of this website and the processing of this data by Google.

To do this, the person concerned must download and install a browser add-on under the link http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en. This browser add-on informs Google Analytics via JavaScript that no data and information about website visits may be transmitted to Google Analytics. The installation of the browser add-on is considered by Google as a contradiction. If the data subject’s information technology system is later deleted, formatted or reinstalled, the data subject must re-install the browser add-on to disable Google Analytics. Unless the browser add-on is done by the affected person or any other person belonging to her power range, uninstall or disable, it is possible to reinstall or re-enable the browser add-on.

Additional information and Google’s privacy policy can be found at https://policies.google.com/privacy/update?hl=en&gl=en / and http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/en.html become. Google Analytics is explained in more detail at https://www.google.com/intl/de_de/analytics/.

c. Instagram

The controller has integrated components of the Instagram service on this website. Instagram is a service that qualifies as an audiovisual platform, allowing users to share photos and videos, and also disseminate such data to other social networks.

Instagram’s operating company is Instagram LLC, 1 Hacker Way, Building 14 First Floor, Menlo Park, CA, USA.

Each visit to one of the pages of this website operated by the controller and on which an Instagram component (Insta-Button) has been integrated automatically causes the internet browser on the information technology system of the person concerned through the respective Instagram component causes to download a representation of the corresponding component of Instagram. As part of this technical process, Instagram is aware of which specific bottom of our website is visited by the person concerned.

If the data subject is logged in to Instagram at the same time, Instagram recognizes with each visit to our website by the data subject and during the entire duration of the respective stay on our website which specific subpage the affected person visits. This information is collected through the Instagram component and assigned through Instagram to the affected person’s Instagram account. If the person concerned activates one of the Instagram buttons integrated on our website, the data and information transferred with it are assigned to the personal Instagram user account of the person concerned and saved and processed by Instagram.

Through the Instagram component, Instagram always receives information that the person concerned has visited our website if the person concerned is simultaneously logged into Instagram at the time of accessing our website; this happens regardless of whether the person clicks on the Instagram component or not. If the affected person does not want to transmit this information to Instagram, the latter can prevent the transmission from logging out of their Instagram account before calling our website.

Additional information and Instagram’s privacy policy can be found at https://help.instagram.com/155833707900388 and https://www.instagram.com/about/legal/privacy/.

dLinkedIn

The controller has integrated components from LinkedIn Corporation on this website. LinkedIn is an Internet-based social network that allows users to connect to existing business contacts and make new business contacts. Over 400 million registered people use LinkedIn in more than 200 countries. This makes LinkedIn currently the largest platform for business contacts and one of the most visited websites in the world.

LinkedIn’s operating company is LinkedIn Corporation, 2029 Stierlin Court Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Privacy Policy outside the United States is handled by LinkedIn Ireland, Privacy Policy Issues, Wilton Plaza, Wilton Place, Dublin 2, Ireland.

Each time you visit our website, which has a LinkedIn component (LinkedIn plug-in), this component causes the browser used by the subject to download a corresponding representation of the LinkedIn component.

13Legal basis of processing

Art. 6 I lit. a DS-GVO serves our company as the legal basis for processing operations where we obtain consent for a particular processing purpose.

If the processing of personal data is necessary to fulfill a contract of which the data subject is a party, as is the case, for example, in processing operations necessary for the supply of goods or the provision of any other service or consideration, processing shall be based on art. 6 I lit. b DS-GVO. The same applies to processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of inquiries regarding our products or services.

If our company is subject to a legal obligation which requires the processing of personal data, such as the fulfillment of tax obligations, the processing is based on art. 6 I lit. c DS-GVO.

In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be required to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor to our premises were injured and his or her name, age, health insurance or other vital information would have to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Then the processing would be based on art. 6 I lit. d DS-GVO are based.

Ultimately, processing operations could be based on art. 6 I lit. f DS-GVOs are based. On this legal basis, processing operations that are not covered by any of the above legal bases are required if processing is necessary to safeguard the legitimate interests of our company or a third party, unless the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the person concerned prevail. Such processing operations are particularly allowed to us because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In that regard, it considered that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a customer of the controller (recital 47, second sentence, GDPR).

14. Authorized interests in the processing that are being pursued by the controller or a third party

Is the processing of personal data based on article 6 I lit. f GDPR is our legitimate interest in conducting our business for the benefit of our company, our employees and our shareholders. 

15Duration for which the personal data is stored

The criterion for the duration of the storage of personal data is the respective statutory retention period. After the deadline, the corresponding data will be routinely deleted, if they are no longer required to fulfill the contract or to initiate a contract.

Insofar as a statutory retention regulation does not exist, the data will be deleted or destroyed if they are no longer necessary for the achievement of the corporate purposes. The same applies if the purpose for which the data is stored is dispensed with and if the person concerned revokes his consent to processing.

16. Legal or contractual provisions for the provision of personal data; Necessity for the conclusion of the contract; Obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data; Possible consequences of non-provision

We clarify that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (eg. tax regulations) or can also result from contractual provisions (eg. information about the contracting party). There are different deadlines for storage, so data with tax relevance is usually kept for 10 years, other data according to commercial law usually 6 years.

Occasionally it may be necessary for a contract to be concluded that an affected person provides us with personal data that must subsequently be processed by us. For example, the data subject is required to provide us with personal information when our company concludes a contract with it. Failure to provide the personal data would mean that the contract with the person concerned could not be closed. Prior to any personal data being provided by the person concerned, the person concerned must contact one of our employees. Our employee will inform the individual on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or contract or is required for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and the consequences of the non-provision of the personal data.
