Privacy Policy

1. Introduction

With the following information we would like to give you as a "person concerned" an overview of the processing of your personal data by us and your rights under data protection laws. The use of our internet pages is basically possible without entering personal data. However, if you wish to make use of special services of our company via our website, it may be necessary to process personal data. If the processing of personal data is necessary and there is no legal basis for such processing, we will generally obtain your consent.

The processing of personal data, for example your name, address or e-mail address, always takes place in accordance with the Data Protection Basic Regulation (Datenschutz-Grundverordnung (DS-GVO)) and in accordance with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to "Conpair AG". By means of this data protection declaration we would like to inform you about the scope and purpose of the personal data collected, used and processed by us.

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

4. Definitions

The data protection declaration is based on the terms used by the European directive and regulation giver in the adoption of the data protection basic regulation (DS-GVO). Our data protection declaration should be easy to read and understand for the public as well as for our customers and business partners. In order to guarantee this, we would like to explain the terms used in advance.

We use the following terms in this data protection declaration:

4.1 Personal data

Personal data is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. A natural person shall be considered identifiable if he can be identified directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an on-line identifier or one or more specific characteristics expressing the physical, physiological, genetic, psychological, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.

4.2 Person concerned

Data subject is any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data is processed by the data controller (our company).

4.3 Processing

Processing means any operation or set of operations which is carried out with or without the aid of automated processes and which relates to personal data, such as collection, recording, organisation, sorting, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or association, qualification, erasure or destruction.

4.4 Limitation of processing

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

4.5 Profiling

Profiling is any automated processing of personal data consisting of the use of such personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyse or predict aspects relating to the work performance, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, conduct, whereabouts or movement of that natural person.

4.6 Pseudonymisation

Pseudonymisation means the processing of personal data in such a way that the personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without the provision of additional information, provided that such additional information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organisational measures ensuring that the personal data are not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.

4.7 Processors of orders

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

4.8 Recipient

The recipient is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body to whom personal data are disclosed, whether or not that person is a third party. However, authorities which may receive personal data in the course of a specific investigation task under Union law or the law of the Member States shall not be considered as recipients.

4.9 Third party

Third party means any natural or legal person, public authority, agency or body other than the data subject, the controller, the processor and the persons authorised to process the personal data under the direct responsibility of the controller or processor.

4.10 Consent

Consent shall mean any voluntary, informed and unambiguous expression by the data subject of his or her will in the particular case, in the form of a statement or other unequivocal confirmatory act, indicating that he or she consents to the processing of his or her personal data.

5. Legal basis for the processing

Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DS-GVO serves our company as a legal basis for processing operations in which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose.

If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are a party, as is the case, for example, with processing operations that are necessary for the delivery of goods or the provision of other services or consideration, the processing is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DS-GVO. The same applies to such processing operations which are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of inquiries regarding our products or services.

If our company is subject to a legal obligation requiring the processing of personal data, such as for the fulfilment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c DS-GVO.

In rare cases, the processing of personal data may become necessary in order to protect the vital interests of the person concerned or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor to our business were injured and his name, age, health insurance data 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 para. 1 lit. d DS-GVO.

Ultimately, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DS-GVO. Processing operations that are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases are based on this legal basis if the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the data subject do not predominate. Such processing operations are permitted to us in particular because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In this respect, he was of the opinion that a legitimate interest could be assumed if you are a customer of our company (recital 47 sentence 2 DS-GVO).

6. Technology

6.1 SSL/TLS Encryption

This site uses SSL or TLS encryption to ensure the security of data processing and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders, login data or contact requests that you send to us as the operator. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that in the address line of the browser there is a "https://" instead of a "http://" and by the lock symbol in your browser line.

If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.

6.2 Data collection when visiting the website

If you only use our website for information purposes, i.e. if you do not register or otherwise provide us with information, we only collect data that your browser transmits to our server (in so-called "server log files"). Our website collects a range of general data and information each time a page is called up by you or an automated system. This general data and information is stored in the log files of the server. The following can be recorded

  1. browser types and versions used,
  2. the operating system used by the accessing system,
  3. the website from which an accessing system accesses our website (so-called referrer),
  4. the subwebsites which are accessed via an accessing system on our website,
  5. the date and time of access to the website,
  6. a shortened Internet protocol address (anonymous IP address),
  7. the Internet service provider of the accessing system.

When using this general data and information, we do not draw any conclusions about your person. Rather, this information is required to

  1. to deliver the contents of our website correctly,
  2. to optimise the content of our website and the advertising for it,
  3. to ensure the long-term operability of our IT systems and the technology of our website, and
  4. to provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for law enforcement in the event of a cyber attack.

This collected data and information is therefore evaluated by us both statistically and with the aim of increasing data protection and data security in our company in order to ultimately ensure an optimum level of protection for the personal data processed by us. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by the person concerned.

The legal basis for data processing is Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f DS-GVO. Our legitimate interest follows from the purposes listed above for the collection of data.

7. Cookies

7.1 General information about cookies

We use cookies on our website. These are small files that your browser automatically creates and that are stored on your IT system (laptop, tablet, smartphone, etc.) when you visit our site. Cookies do not cause any damage to your terminal device, do not contain viruses, Trojans or other malware.

Information is stored in the cookie, which results in each case in connection with the specifically used terminal device. This does not mean, however, that we will immediately become aware of your identity.

The use of cookies serves on the one hand to make the use of our offer more pleasant for you. For example, we use so-called session cookies to recognise that you have already visited individual pages on our website. These are automatically deleted after leaving our site.

In addition, we also use temporary cookies to optimise user-friendliness, which are stored on your terminal for a specific period of time. If you visit our site again to make use of our services, it is automatically recognized that you have already been with us and which inputs and settings you have made so that you do not have to enter them again.

On the other hand, we use cookies in order to statistically record the use of our website and to evaluate it for the purpose of optimising our offer for you. These cookies enable us to automatically recognize that you have already visited our site when you visit it again. These cookies are automatically deleted after a defined period of time.

The data processed by cookies are necessary for the purposes mentioned to safeguard our legitimate interests and those of third parties pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f DS-GVO.

Most browsers automatically accept cookies. However, you can configure your browser so that no cookies are stored on your computer or a message always appears before a new cookie is created. Complete deactivation of cookies may, however, prevent you from using all the functions of our website.

8. Webanalyse

8.1 Google Analytics

On our websites we use Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Ireland Limited (https://about.google/intl/en/) (Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland; hereinafter "Google"). In this context, pseudonymised user profiles are created and cookies (see "Cookies") are used. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website such as

  1. browser type/version,
  2. the operating system used,
  3. referrer URL (the previously visited page),
  4. host name of the accessing computer (IP address),
  5. time of the server request,

are transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. This information is used to evaluate the use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide other services relating to website activity and internet usage for market research purposes and to tailor these internet pages to meet requirements. This information may also be transferred to third parties if this is required by law or if third parties process this data on behalf of third parties. Under no circumstances will your IP address be merged with other Google data. The IP addresses are anonymised so that an allocation is not possible (IP masking).

You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser, however please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website.

The use of Google Analytics is in the interest of optimising our website and tailoring it to suit your needs. This constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DS-GVO.

You may also prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and relating to your use of the website (including your IP address) and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing a browser add-on (https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en).

As an alternative to the browser add-on, in particular for browsers on mobile devices, you can also prevent the collection by Google Analytics by clicking on the following link: Deactivate Google Analytics. An opt-out cookie is set to prevent your data from being collected in the future when you visit this website. The opt-out cookie applies only to this browser and only to our website and is placed on your device. If you delete the cookies in this browser, you will need to set the opt-out cookie again.

Further information on data protection in connection with Google Analytics can be found in the Google Analytics help (https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=en).
