General information on data processing

Scope of processing of personal data

In principle, we only collect and use our users' personal data when it is necessary to do so in order to provide a functioning website and for our content and services. The collection and use of our users' personal data is normally only carried out with the user's consent. One exception is where it is not possible to obtain consent beforehand for practical reasons and it is permitted by law to process the data.

Legal basis for the processing of personal data

When we obtain consent for processing operations for personal data from the data subject, Article 6(1)(a) of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) forms the legal basis for the processing of personal data.

In the case of the processing of personal data which is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is party, Article 6(1)(b) GDPR forms the legal basis. This also applies for processing operations that are necessary to take steps prior to entering into a contract.

When processing personal data is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Article 6(1)(c) GDPR forms the legal basis.

In the event that the processing of personal data is necessary in order to protect the vital interests of the data subject or of another natural person, Article 6 (1)(d) GDPR forms the legal basis.

If the processing is necessary for the protection of the legitimate interests of our company or a third party and such interests are not overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject, Article 6 (1)(f) GDPR forms the legal basis for the processing.

Data erasure and storage period

The data subject's personal data will be erased or made unavailable as soon as the purpose of storage ceases to apply. Storage can also be carried out if this is provided for by the European or national legislator in Union regulations, laws or other rules to which the controller is subject. Data will only be made unavailable or erased if the storage period prescribed by the aforementioned standards lapses, unless continued storage of the data is necessary for conclusion or performance of a contract.

Operation of a website and creation of log files

Description and scope of data processing

Every time our website is visited, our system automatically records data and information from the system of the requesting computer.

The following data is collected in this way:

  1. Information on the browser type and version used
  2. The user's operating system
  3. The user's Internet service provider
  4. The user's IP address
  5. Date and time of access, length of visit 6. Websites from which the user's system reaches our website

The data is also stored in our system's log files. This data is not stored together with the user's other personal data. The IP addresses are anonymised within the logfiles by the contracted hosting service provider - the last digits of the IP are encrypted.

Legal basis for data processing

The legal basis for the temporary storage of the data and log files is Article 6(1)(f) GDPR.

Purpose of data processing

It is necessary for the system to store the IP address temporarily to enable the website to be sent to the user's computer. For this purpose, the user's IP address must be stored for the duration of the session.

Storage in log files is carried out to ensure the functionality of the website. We also use the data to optimise the website and to ensure the security of our IT systems. An analysis of the data for marketing purposes is not carried out in this context.

We also have a legitimate interest in data processing for these purposes in accordance with Article 6(1)(f) GDPR.

Duration of storage

The data will be erased as soon as it is no longer required to achieve the purpose of its collection. When data is collected to operate a website, this is the case when the relevant session ends.

When data is stored in log files, this is the case after seven days at the latest. Extended storage is possible. In this case, users' IP addresses will be erased or distorted so that assignment to the requesting client is no longer possible.

Right to object and right to rectification

Recording data to operate the website and storing the data in log files is essential for running the website. Therefore, the user does not have any right to object.

Use of cookies

Our website does not use cookies.
Cookies are text files which are saved in the user's web browser or by the user's web browser on their computer system. When a user visits a website, a cookie may be saved on their operating system. This cookie contains a characteristic character string which allows the browser to be clearly identified when the website is visited again.

Involvement of third-party services and content

We use content and other services from third party providers in order to integrate their content and services, such as videos or fonts, into our website (hereinafter referred to as "Content"). Our legitimate interests, i.e. interests in optimising and operating our website, exist within the meaning of Article 6(1)(f) GDPR).

The integration of third party services and content assumes that third party providers of this content use the IP address of the user, as without the IP address the content cannot be sent to their browser. The IP address is therefore required to display this content. We endeavour to use only content for which the relevant provider uses the IP address solely for the purpose of displaying content. Third party providers can also use pixel tags (invisible graphics, also known as web beacons) for statistical or marketing purposes. Pixel tags produce information on visitor traffic to the pages of this website.

Pseudonymised information can be stored in cookies on the user's device and can also contain technical information on the browser and operating system, referring websites, time of visit and other details for the use of our websites so that it can be linked up to information from other sources.

Use of script libraries (Google Webfonts)

In order to present our content correctly and with visually appealing graphics, we use script and font libraries on this website, such as Google Webfonts (https://www.google.com/webfont...). Google Webfonts are transferred to avoid multiple downloads in your browser's cache. If your browser does not support Google Webfonts or prevents access to it, the content will be shown in a standard font.

Accessing script libraries or font libraries automatically triggers a connection to the operator of the library. It is therefore theoretically possible for operators of such libraries to collect data; it is, however currently unclear whether this is the case and, if so, for what purposes it may be used.

You can find the data protection policy of the library operator Google here: https://www.google.com/policie... and https://privacy.google.com/?hl=de# .

Use of Google Maps

Our website uses Google Maps API for the visual display of geographical information. During the use of Google Maps, Google also collects, processes and uses data on the visitor's use of the map function. Further information on data processing by Google can be found in the Google Privacy Policy (https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=de). In the data protection centre there you can also change your personal data protection settings.

Detailed instructions on managing your own data in relation to Google products can be found here (https://support.google.com/accounts/answer/3024190 ).

Embedded YouTube videos

On some of our web pages we embed YouTube videos. The operator of the corresponding plug-in is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. If you visit a page with a YouTube plug-in, a link to the servers of YouTube is created. This informs YouTube about which page you are visiting. If you are logged into your YouTube account, YouTube is able to link your surfing patterns to your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account first.

If a YouTube-Video is started, the provider sets cookies that collect information on user behaviour.

If you have disabled the storing of cookies for the Google Ads program, you can expect no such cookies when viewing YouTube videos. However, YouTube also stores non-personal data in other cookies. If you would like to prevent this, you must block the storage of cookies in your browser.

Google AdWords

Our website uses Google conversion tracking. If you arrive at our website via an advert placed by Google, Google AdWords will set a cookie on your computer. The cookie for conversion tracking is set when a user clicks on an advert delivered by Google. These cookies lose their effectiveness after 30 days and cannot be used for personal identification. If the user visits certain pages on our website and the cookie has not yet expired, we and Google are able to recognise that you have clicked on the advert and have been forwarded to this page. Every Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. Cookies therefore cannot be traced via the websites of AdWords customers. The information that is gathered with the help of conversion cookies serves to produce conversion statistics for AdWords customers who have opted for conversion tracking. As a result, the customers are informed about the total number of users who have clicked on their advert and been forwarded to a site with a conversion tracking tag. However, they do not receive any information with which the users could be personally identified.

If you do not wish to participate in the tracking, you can decline the setting of the cookies required for this; this can be done, for example, via your browser settings, which disable the automatic setting of cookies generally, or by setting your browser up in such a way that cookies are blocked from the domain "googleleadservices.com".

Please note that you cannot delete the opt-out cookies as long as you do not want to record measurement data. If you have deleted all your cookies in your browser, you must reset the opt-out cookie.

E-mail contact

Description and scope of data processing

When contacting us via email, the user's personal data transmitted with the email will be stored.

We will not distribute the data to third parties in this context. The data is solely used to process the conversation.

Legal basis for data processing

The legal basis for the processing of data when the user's consent has been obtained is Article 6(1)(a) GDPR

The legal basis for the processing of data that is transmitted when sending an email is Article 6(1)(f) GDPR. If the aim of contact by email is to conclude a contract, Article 6(1)(b) GDPR is also a legal basis for processing.

Purpose of data processing

We only process the personal data entered in the contact form to facilitate contact. In the event of contact by email, there is also the necessary legitimate interest in processing the data.

The other personal data processed during submission is used to prevent misuse of the contact form and ensure the security of our IT systems.

Duration of storage

The data will be erased as soon as it is no longer required to achieve the purpose of its collection. For personal data from the contact form and that which has been sent by e-mail, this is the case when the conversation with the user ends. The conversation is considered to have ended when it is clear from the circumstances that the matter in hand has been fully clarified.

Additional personal data collected during submission will be erased after seven days at the latest.

Right to object and right to rectification.

The user has the possibility of withdrawing their consent to the processing of personal data at any time. If the user contacts us by e-mail, they may object to the storage of their personal data at any time. The conversation cannot be continued in such a case.

You can withdraw your consent and object to the storage of your personal data by sending an email to: datenschutz(at)ecad-gmbh.com.

In this case, all personal data stored during contact will be erased.

Rights of data subjects

If your personal data is processed, you are the data subject in accordance with the GDPR and you have the following rights vis-à-vis the controller:

Right of access

You can request confirmation from the controller of whether we process personal data concerning you.

If such processing is carried out, you can request details of the following information from the controller:

(1) the purposes for which the personal data is processed;

(2) the categories of personal data which are processed;

(3) the recipients or categories of recipients to whom personal data concerning you has been or will be disclosed;

(4) the planned length of storage of the personal data concerning you or, if it is not possible to provide specific details of this, the criteria for determining the storage period;

(5) the existence of a right to rectification or erasure of the personal data concerning you, a right to restriction of processing by the controller or a right to object to such processing;

(6) the existence of a right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority;

(7) all available information on the origin of the data, if the personal data is not obtained from the data subject;

(8) the existence of automated decision-making, including profiling, in accordance with Article 22(1) and (4) GDPR and, in these cases at least, meaningful information on the logic involved as well as the significance and the envisaged consequences of such processing for the data subject.

You have the right to request information on whether personal data concerning you will be transferred to a third country or to an international organisation. In this regard, you can request information on the appropriate safeguards in accordance with Article 46 GDPR related to transmission.

Right to rectification

You have a right to rectification and/or completion vis-à-vis the controller if the processed personal data concerning you is incorrect or incomplete. The controller must carry out the rectification immediately.

Right to restriction of processing

Under the following circumstances, you can request the processing of personal data concerning you to be restricted:

(1) for a period enabling the controller to verify the accuracy of the personal data, if you are contesting the accuracy of the personal data concerning you;

(2) when the processing is unlawful and you oppose the erasure of the personal data and request the restriction of use of the personal data instead;

(3) when the controller no longer needs the personal data for processing purposes, but you need it to establish, exercise or defend your legal rights, or

(4) when you have objected to the processing in accordance with Article 21 (1) GDPR and verification of whether the controller's legitimate grounds override your grounds is still pending.

If the processing of personal data concerning you has been restricted, this data may, with the exception of storage, only be processed with your consent or to establish, exercise or defend legal claims or to protect the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of important public interest of the EU or of a Member State.

Where processing has been restricted under the aforementioned conditions, you will be informed by the controller before the restriction is lifted.

Right to erasure

Duty to erase

You can ask the controller to erase personal data concerning you immediately and the controller is obliged to erase this data immediately where one of the following grounds applies:

(1) The personal data concerning you is no longer necessary for the purposes for which it was collected or otherwise processed.

(2) You withdraw your consent on which the processing is based in accordance with Article 6 (1)(a) or Article 9 (2)(a) GDPR and there are no other legal grounds for the processing.

(3) You submit an objection to the processing in accordance with Article 21(1) GDPR and there are no overriding legitimate grounds for the processing, or you submit an objection to the processing in accordance with Article 21(2) GDPR.

(4) The personal data concerning you was processed unlawfully.

(5) The erasure of personal data concerning you is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation under Union law or the law of a Member State to which the controller is subject.

(6) The personal data concerning you was collected in relation to information society services offered in accordance with Article 8 (1) GDPR.

Disclosing information to third parties

If the controller has made personal data concerning you public and is obliged to delete it in accordance with Article 17(1) GDPR, it shall take reasonable steps, taking into account available technology and implementation costs, including technical measures, to inform controllers who are processing the personal data that you as the data subject, have requested the erasure of all links to this personal data or of copies or replications of this personal data.

Exceptions

The right to erasure is not granted if the processing is necessary

(1) to exercise the right of freedom of expression and information;

(2) to fulfil a legal obligation which requires processing in accordance with the law of the Union or the Member States to which the controller is subject or to perform a task that is carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller;

(3) for reasons in the public interest in the area of public health in accordance with Article 9(2)(h) and (i) and Article 9(3) GDPR;

(4) for archiving purposes in the public interest, scientific or historical research purposes or statistical purposes in accordance with Article 89(1) GDPR, if the right provided in (a) is likely to render impossible or seriously impair the achievement of the objectives of this processing, or

(5) to establish, exercise or defend legal claims.

Right to information

If you have asserted the right to rectification, erasure or restriction of processing vis-à-vis the controller, the controller is obliged to inform all recipients to whom the personal data concerning you was disclosed of this rectification or erasure of the data or restriction of processing, unless this proves impossible or would involve a disproportionate effort.

You have the right vis-à-vis the controller to information on these recipients.

Right to data portability

You have the right to receive personal data concerning you which you have provided to the controller in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format. You also have the right to transmit this data to another controller without hindrance from the controller to whom the personal data was provided, if

(1) the processing is based on consent in accordance with Article 6 (1)(a) GDPR or Article 9 (2)(a) GDPR or on a contract in accordance with Article 6 (1)(b) GDPR and

(2) the processing is carried out by automated means.

In exercising this right, you also have the right to have the personal data concerning you transmitted directly from one controller to another controller, where this is technically feasible. The freedom and rights of others may not be adversely affected by this.

The right to data portability does not apply for the processing of personal data that is necessary to perform a task that is carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller.

Right of objection

You have the right, for reasons arising from your own particular situation, to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning you that is performed in accordance with Article 6(1)(e) or (f) GDPR; this also applies to any profiling based on these provisions.

The controller will no longer process the personal data concerning you, unless it can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing that outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing facilitates the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.

Where personal data concerning you is processed for direct marketing purposes, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning you for the purposes of such advertising; this also applies to profiling insofar as it is associated with such direct advertising.

If you object to the processing for direct advertising purposes, the personal data concerning you will no longer be processed for these purposes.

Notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC, you are also entitled in the context of the use of information society services to exercise your right of objection by means of automated procedures for which technical specifications are used.

Right to withdraw declaration of consent under data protection law

You have the right to withdraw your declaration of consent under data protection law at any time. The withdrawal of consent will not affect the lawfulness of processing carried out based on the consent prior to withdrawal.

Automated individual decision-making, including profiling

You have the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which has legal effects for you or similar significant adverse effects for you. This does not apply if the decision

(1) is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between you and the controller,

(2) is permissible under the law of the Union or the Member States to which the controller is subject, and this law provides adequate measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests, or

(3) is made with your express consent.

However, these decisions may not be based on special categories of personal data in accordance with Article 9(1) GDPR, unless Article 9(2)(a) or (g) applies and suitable steps to protect rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests have been taken.

In the cases stated in (1) and (3), the controller will take suitable steps to safeguard rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests, including at least the right to obtain human intervention on the part of the controller, to express your own point of view and to contest the decision.

Right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority

Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of your habitual residence, your place of work or the place of the alleged infringement, if you believe that the processing of the personal data concerning you infringes the GDPR.

The supervisory authority where the complaint was lodged will inform the complainant of the status and outcome of the complaint, including the possibility of a judicial legal remedy in accordance with Article 78 GDPR.
