2. Purposes and legal basis of data processing

2.1 Data processing for the provision of contractual services
We process personal data in order to process the contractual relationships and to be able to submit contractual offers tailored to your requirements. The collection of the data takes place in particular for the conclusion and/or for the performance of a contract.

You can use our website and the contact data provided there to request contractual services. Insofar as personal data are transmitted to us by you in this way or in any other way in the case of enquiries about orders, we process your data under sole controllership for answering your enquiries, for the execution of the order/contract and for invoicing. For this purpose we need your (company) name, your address data, your e-mail address and your telephone number. Without these data we cannot execute the contract with you. In addition, we collect further data in the context of the contract initiation or contract implementation, although not absolutely necessary for the contract implementation, but which support the purpose and are useful for it.

In the case of suppliers/service providers, we process the personal data made available by them in this way or in any other way for the purpose of ordering and calling up services on our part and to pay for the services provided. For this purpose, we require the name, address and account data. Depending on the service/contract, we may also require additional data, which we will inform you about in individual cases. If you provide further data, we will also use this for the above-mentioned purposes, but this is not necessary for the conclusion of the contract.

The basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. b GDPR, which permits the processing of data for the fulfilment of a contract or pre-contractual measures.

2.2 Data processing for communication with you (contact form, etc.)
In addition to the contract data, we process your communication data (name of contact persons, address, telephone number, fax number, e-mail address) to process your request and/or to be able to communicate with you. Personal data that you provide to us by e-mail or via the contact form on this website will only be processed for correspondence with you or only for the purpose for which you have made the data available to us.

For all forms, we collect only those personal data that are absolutely necessary for the processing of the contractual relationship or for your information request. These details are marked with an asterisk. The collection of data that is not absolutely necessary, but in which we are interested in order to optimise the fulfilment of the purpose, is only optional. In this case you decide on a voluntary basis whether and which data you wish to provide us with.

For the collection of data in forms, Eucon GmbH is sole controller.

The basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. b GDPR, which permits the processing of data for the performance of a contract or pre-contractual measures.

2.3 Data processing for marketing purposes
We use the data you provide to send you recommendations and information about our products and services by post.
Furthermore, we use your e-mail address for product recommendations if you have already ordered something from us. You will receive these product recommendations from us regardless of whether you have subscribed to a newsletter. In this way, we want to send you information about products from our offer that might be interesting for you based on your last purchases from us. In doing so, we comply strictly with the legal requirements.

We also use your telephone number to provide you with recommendations and information about our products and services by telephone, whereby we will of course also comply with the legal requirements in this respect. This can also be done under the joint controllership or under the sole controllership of one of the aforementioned controllers.

If you no longer wish to receive product recommendations or promotional messages from us, you can object to this at any time. A message in text form to the contact data mentioned under point 1 (e.g. e-mail, fax, letter) is sufficient for this purpose.

The basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. f GDPR, which permits the processing of data to safeguard the legitimate interests of the data controller, unless the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject outweigh the processing. Our interest is economic and lies in promoting and selling our products and services.

2.4 Data processing for job applications
You can send us applications for jobs in our companies via our websites and the contact data we have provided there. Insofar as personal data is transferred to us by you in this way or in any other way during applications, we process your data for the purpose of examining, processing and responding to your application and, if necessary, preparing the employment relationship. If you would like to send us applications via our application portal, please also note the corresponding data protection information there.

The basis for the data processing is either Art. 88 para. 1 GDPR, S. 26 para. 1 BDSG (new) which allows the processing of data for the purpose deciding on the establishment, for the establishment as well as for the performance of employment relationships or - if you have given your consent - Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. a GDPR. You may revoke any consent you have given at any time with effect for the future. An informal notification by e-mail to us is sufficient for this purpose. The legality of the data processing operations already carried out remains unaffected by the revocation.

2.5 Data processing for market and opinion research
We also use your data for market and opinion research. Of course, we use this data only anonymously for statistical purposes and only for our company. Your answers in surveys are not passed on to third parties or published.

The basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. f GDPR, which permits the processing of data to safeguard the legitimate interests of the data controller, unless the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject outweigh the processing. Our interest lies in the economic use of the data to improve our offer.

2.6 Newsletter - CleverReach
With your consent, you can subscribe to a newsletter of one of the beforementioned controllers, with which you will be informed about current interesting offers by the controller. The processing is carried out under the sole controllership of the respective controller. The respective content of a newsletter is explained in the respective declaration of consent. If you would like to receive a newsletter offered by us, we require an e-mail address from you as well as information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the e-mail address provided and that you agree to receive the newsletter. For this purpose, we will send you an e-mail with a confirmation link (double opt-in) to the e-mail address you have entered. If you do not confirm your registration within 24 hours, your information will be blocked and automatically deleted after one month.

Your e-mail address is the only mandatory information for sending the newsletter. The entering of further, separately marked data is voluntary and will be used to address you personally. In addition, we save the IP addresses you use and the dates of registration and confirmation. The purpose of the procedure is to prove your registration and, if necessary, to clarify any possible misuse of your personal data. We do not collect any further data in this context. We use these data exclusively for the dispatch of the requested newsletter.

We use the services of CleverReach GmbH & Co. KG, Mühlenstr. 43, 26180 Rastede for sending newsletters. CleverReach is a service that can be used to organise and analyse the distribution of newsletters. With the help of CleverReach we can analyse our newsletter campaigns. When you open an e-mail sent with CleverReach, a file contained in the e-mail (so-called web beacon) connects to the servers of CleverReach. In this way it can be determined whether a newsletter message has been opened and which links have been clicked on. In addition, technical information is collected (e.g. referrer URL, time of access, browser information, IP address, transmitted data volume). This information cannot be assigned to the respective newsletter recipient. It is used exclusively for statistical analysis of newsletter campaigns. The results of these analyses can be used to better adapt future newsletters to the interests of the recipients.

Further information on data protection can be found at https://www.cleverreach.com/en/privacy-policy/.

If you no longer wish to receive a newsletter and/or no longer wish to be analyzed by CleverReach, you can simply unsubscribe from the newsletter. For this purpose we provide a link in every newsletter message. You can also stop CleverReach's analysis by making the appropriate selection in our Consent Management Tool.

The data that you provide us with for the purpose of subscribing to the newsletter will be stored by us until you unsubscribe from the newsletter and will be deleted from our servers as well as from the servers of CleverReach after you unsubscribe from the newsletter. Data, which were stored for other purposes (e.g. e-mail addresses for the member area), remain unaffected.

Data processing takes place on the basis of your consent pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 s. 1 lit. a GDPR. You can revoke your consent to the sending of a newsletter at any time and cancel the respective subscription. You can declare your revocation by clicking on the link provided in every e-mail or by sending us a message via the contact details mentioned under point 1. You can withdraw your consent regarding the analysis by CleverReach in the same way or without unsubscribing from the newsletter by making the appropriate selection in our Consent Management Tool. The legality of the data processing operations that have already taken place remains unaffected by the revocation.

2.7 E-mail information when accessing documents provided
On some of our websites you have the possibility to download certain documents provided by us. In this context, it may occur that we use the data you provide, in particular your e-mail address, to send you topic-related information as well as information on products and services related to the document´s topic to the provided e-mail address. In addition, we save the IP addresses you use and the dates of registration and confirmation. The purpose of the procedure is to prove your registration and, if necessary, to clarify any possible misuse of your personal data.

The data is processed under the sole responsibility of the controller who will provide you with the requested document; this is indicated on the respective website.

The data processing is based on your consent in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a GDPR. You can revoke your consent at any time by clicking on the link provided in each e-mail or by sending us a message using the contact details given in section 1. The legality of the data processing operations that have already taken place remains unaffected by the revocation.

2.8 Cookies
We use so-called cookies on some of our websites, among other things to be able to offer you website-specific services, to recognize you when you visit our website again, and/or to adapt our offer to your personal preferences.

Cookies are small text files that are stored on a visitor's computer and contain data on the respective user in order to enable access to various functions. Both session cookies and persistent cookies are used on our website. A session cookie is temporarily stored on your computer as you navigate through the site. A session cookie is deleted as soon as you close your Internet browser or as soon as your session has expired after a certain period of time. A persistent cookie remains on your computer until it is deleted. The storage of a cookie ensures that you do not have to repeatedly enter your personal settings and preferences every time you visit our website. This saves you time and makes using our website more convenient for you.

We may work with third parties on some of our websites, and therefore, when you visit such a website, cookies from partner companies may be stored on your hard drive (third-party cookies). We inform you below about the use of such cookies and the scope of the data collected in each case.

You can delete permanently installed cookies via the settings of your browser. Most browsers accept cookies automatically - so if you want to suppress the use of cookies, you may have to actively delete or block cookies or prevent the storage of cookies by setting your browser software. Please note, however, that if you choose not to accept cookies, you may still be able to visit our website, but some features may not work as intended.

We use necessary cookies, which are necessary to enable us to provide the services we owe or to ensure the functionality of our services. The data processing in this respect is then based on Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. b GDPR which permits the processing of data for the fulfilment of a contract or pre-contractual measures or Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 letter f GDPR, which permits data processing to serve the legitimate interests of the data controller, unless the interests or the fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject outweigh the interest of the data controller in processing the data. Our interest then lies in ensuring the functionality of our website.

We may obtain your consent for the use of other, unnecessary cookies. The data processing is then carried out on the basis of your consent in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. a GDPR. You can revoke your consent at any time. The legality of the data processing already carried out remains unaffected by the revocation.

2.9 YouTube
On some of our websites we may use plug-ins from the YouTube website. The operator of these sites is Google Ireland Limited ("Google"), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

We use YouTube in advanced privacy mode. According to YouTube, this mode means that YouTube does not store any information about visitors to this website before they watch the video. However, the advanced privacy mode does not necessarily exclude the sharing of information with YouTube partners. For example, YouTube connects to the Google DoubleClick network whether or not you are watching a video.

As soon as you start a YouTube video on our website, a connection to the YouTube servers is established. This tells the YouTube server which of our pages you have visited. If you are logged in to your YouTube account, you enable YouTube to assign your surfing behaviour directly to your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account.

Furthermore, YouTube can store various cookies on your end device after starting a video. These cookies enable YouTube to obtain information about visitors to our website. This information is used, among other things, to gather video statistics, improve the user experience and prevent fraud. The cookies remain on your terminal device until you delete them.

If necessary, further data processing procedures may be triggered after the start of a YouTube video, over which we have no influence. For more information about YouTube's privacy policy, please see their privacy policy at https://policies.google.com/privacy.

Under certain circumstances, personal data may be transferred to servers of Alphabet Inc. and Google LLC in the USA. Important in the context of data processing in the US: The European Court of Justice has found that the standard of data protection in the US is insufficient and that there is a risk that your data may be processed by US authorities, for control and monitoring purposes and possibly without any possibility of recourse.

If cookies are set by YouTube, personal data is processed on the basis of your consent in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. a GDPR in conjunction with Art. 49 para. 1 s. 1 lit. a GDPR. You may revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future. The legality of the data processing already carried out remains unaffected by the revocation.

2.10 Matomo
Some of our websites may use the web analysis service Matomo to analyse the use of the respective website. For this purpose the information generated by a Matomo cookie about the use of this website is stored on our server. In contrast to other statistics programs, no data is transmitted to an external server by Matomo; the program is installed on one of our servers located in the EU. IP addresses are made anonymous before being saved. Matomo cookies remain on your end device until you delete them. The information generated by the cookie about the use of this website is not passed on to third parties. You can prevent the storage of cookies by adjusting your browser software accordingly, by making the appropriate selection in our Consent Management Tool or by clicking on this opt-out link: https://matomo.org/privacy-policy/#optout; however, we would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all functions of this website to their full extent.

Further data may also be processed such as country, state, city of the accessing IP, IP address, device type, device operating system, screen resolution, browser language, geographical location, browser type, visited subpages, usage data, number of visits, referrer URL. Statistics on usage behaviour are then based on this data. Matomo itself is very transparent which data is collected. You can read it yourself on the official website, at https://matomo.org/faq/general/faq_18254/.

The processing takes place on the basis of your consent in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. a GDPR. You can revoke your consent at any time. You can revoke your consent by sending a message to the contact data mentioned under point 1 or via the respective consent management tool used.

Google Analytics uses so-called "cookies", which are text files stored on your computer, to help the website analyse how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server and stored there, and may also be transferred to the servers of Google LLC or Alphabet Inc. in the USA.

However, since IP anonymisation is activated on our website when using Google Analytics, your IP address will be shortened by Google in member states of the European Union or in other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google LLC or Alphabet Inc. server in the USA and shortened there. Google will use this information for the purpose of analysing your use of the respective website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage.

The data transmitted by your browser within the framework of Google Analytics is not merged with other data from Google. 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. You can also prevent the collection of the data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your anonymised IP address) to Google and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available under the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.

For more information on terms of use and data protection, please visit http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html or https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/. We would like to point out once again that on this website Google Analytics has been extended by the code "anonymizeIp" to ensure an anonymized collection of IP addresses (so-called IP-Masking).

Important in connection with data processing in the USA: According to the European Court of Justice, the data protection standard in the USA is insufficient and there is a risk that your data will be processed by US authorities, for control and monitoring purposes and possibly without any possibility of legal recourse.

The storage of Google cookies and the analysis for statistical purposes is based on your consent in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. a GDPR and Art. 49 para. 1. s. 1 lit. a GDPR. You can revoke your consent at any time. You can revoke your consent by making the appropriate selection in our Consent Management Tool or by sending a message to the contact data mentioned under point 1 (e.g. e-mail, letter). The legality of the data processing operations that have already taken place remains unaffected by the revocation.

It may also happen that we ask for your consent to process personal data. Any granting of consent and the relevant data processing is voluntary and you will not suffer any disadvantages if you do not consent.

The data processing is then carried out on the basis of your consent in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. a GDPR. You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future. An informal notification to us is sufficient for this purpose. The legality of the data processing operations already carried out remains unaffected by the revocation.

2.18 Log files
Each time our websites are accessed, usage data is transmitted by the respective Internet browser and stored in log files, the so-called server log files. The stored data records contain the following data: Host name, browser type and version, as well as the language set, operating system used (type and version), referrer URL, date and time of the server request, time zone difference to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT), content of the request (concrete page), access status/HTTP status code, amount of data transferred in each case, abbreviated IP address. If JavaScript is activated, also: screen resolution, colour depth, size of browser window, installed browser plug-ins.

These data cannot be assigned to specific persons. These data will not be merged with other data sources. We reserve the right to subsequently check the data if we become aware of concrete indications of illegal use.

The data processing is based on Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. f GDPR, which permits the processing of data to safeguard the legitimate interests of the data controller, insofar as the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not prevail. We have an interest in the prosecution of illegal use of our website.

2.19 Data processing for the fulfilment of legal obligations
In addition, we process your data to fulfil legal obligations (e.g. regulatory requirements, commercial and tax storage and proof obligations).

The basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. c GDPR, which permits processing to fulfil a legal obligation.

3. Categories of recipients of personal data
Your personal data will only be passed on to third parties or otherwise transmitted if this is necessary for the purpose of contract processing or billing or if you have given your prior consent or if there is a legal basis for the passing on of such data.

Your contractual and communication data will be forwarded to the responsible department and the responsible employees within our company in order to answer your enquiries, to communicate or to carry out the order or to fulfil contractual obligations.

Insofar as it is necessary for the purpose of contract processing or for the dispatch and delivery of products, data will be passed on to partner companies which have been commissioned to support contract processing. Our partners undertake to comply with and observe the provisions of data protection law. Furthermore, our partners are not permitted to use the data in any other way than to process the contract.

The basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. b GDPR, which permits the processing of data for the fulfilment of a contract or pre-contractual measures.

In addition, we keep your data for the period during which claims can be asserted against our company (statutory limitation period of three or up to thirty years).

5. Data Security
Your personal data will be transmitted securely by us through encryption. We use the coding system SSL (Secure Socket Layer). You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from "http://" to "https://" and by the lock symbol in your browser line. Furthermore, we secure our websites and other systems by technical and organizational measures against loss, destruction, access, alteration or distribution of your data by unauthorized persons.
