General information

The following information provides a simple overview of what happens with your personal data when you visit our website. Personal data is considered to be any information which you could be personally identified with. Detailed information on data protection can be found in our Privacy Policy below.

Data collection on our website

Who is responsible for collecting data on this website?

Data on this website is processed by the website operator. Contact details can be found under Section 2 of this Privacy Policy.

How do we collect your data?

Your data is collected when you share it with us. This could, for example, be data you enter into a contact form.

Other data is collected automatically by our IT systems when you visit the website. This is primarily technical data, such as the browser and operating system you are using or time you accessed the page. This data is collected automatically as soon as you visit our website.

What do we use your data for?

Part of the data is collected to ensure proper functioning of the website. Other data can be used to analyse how visitors use the site.

What rights do you have concerning your data?

You have the right to request information about the source of your stored data, its recipients, and the purpose of its collection at any time free of charge. You also have the right to request that it be corrected, blocked, or deleted. You can contact us at any time at the address specified in Section 2 of this data protection agreement if you have any further questions about this or about data protection. You also have the right to file a complaint with the competent regulatory authorities.

In addition, you have the right to request that the processing of your personal data be restricted under certain circumstances. Details on this may be found in this Privacy Policy under "Right to restriction of processing".

Analytic and third-party tools

When visiting our website, your browsing behaviour may be statistically analysed. This is done primarily through the use of cookies and so-called analytical programmes. The analysis of your browsing behaviour is usually anonymous, i.e. you cannot be identified through this data. You can object to this analysis or prevent it by not using specific tools. You can find detailed information on this in the following Privacy Policy.

You can object to this analysis. We will inform you about how to object in this Privacy Policy.

2. General and mandatory information

Data protection

The operator of this website takes the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data as confidential and in accordance with the statutory data protection regulations, as well as this Privacy Policy.

When you use this website, various bits of personal data are collected. Personal data is considered to be information which you could be personally identified with. This Privacy Policy explains what information we collect and what we use it for. It also explains how and for what purpose this is done.

We would like to point out that data transmission over the Internet (e.g. through email communication) can have security issues. Complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.

Information on the data controller

The data controller responsible for processing data on this website is:

Bitmotec GmbH

Hollerithallee 17

30419 Hanover

Germany

Phone: +49 511 27012 200

E-Mail: info (at) bitmotec.com

The data controller is an individual or legal entity who decides on the purposes and methods for processing personal data, alone or in conjunction with others (e.g. names, email addresses, etc.).

Revoking your consent to the processing of your data

Many data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. You may revoke consent after granting it at any time. An informal message sent to us by email is a sufficient way to do this. The legality of the data processing performed prior to the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

Right to object to the collection of data in special cases and for direct advertising (Art. 21 of the GDPR)

If your data is processed on the basis of Art. 6(1)(e) or (f) of the GDPR, you have the right to object to the processing of your personal data at any time for reasons arising from your particular situation; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions. The respective legal basis which processing is based on can be found in this Privacy Policy. If you make an objection, we will no longer process your relevant personal data unless we can prove compelling legitimate reasons for the processing which outweigh your interests, rights and freedom, or the processing serves the purpose of asserting, exercising or defending legal claims (objection according to Art. 21(1) of the GDPR).

If your personal data is processed for direct marketing purposes, you have the right at any time to object to the processing of personal data related to you for the purposes of such advertising, including profiling to the extent it is related to such direct marketing. If you object, your personal data will then no longer be used for direct marketing purposes (objection according to Art. 21(2) of the GDPR).

Right to file complaints with the regulatory authorities

In the event of infringements against the GDPR, data subjects shall have the right to appeal to a regulatory authority, particularly in the member state of their habitual residence, their workplace or the location of the presumed infringement. Your right to file complaints exists without prejudice to other administrative or judicial remedies.

Right to data portability

You have the right to have data which we process based on your consent or in fulfilment of a contract automatically delivered to yourself or to a third party in an accessible, machine-readable format. If you request the direct transfer of data to another data controller, this shall only occur to the extent that it is technically feasible.

SSL and TLS encryption

This site uses SSL or TLS encryption for security purposes and for the protection of the transmission of confidential content, such as the enquiries you send to us as site operator. You can recognise 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 bar.

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

Disclosure, blocking, deletion and correction

As permitted by law, you have the right to be provided with information free of charge at any time about any of your personal data that is stored as well as its origin, the recipient and the purpose for which it has been processed, and, where applicable, the right to have this data corrected, blocked or deleted. You can contact us at any time at the address specified in Section 2 of this data protection agreement if you have any further questions about this or about personal data.

Right to restrict processing

You have the right to request that the processing of your personal data be restricted. You can contact us at any time about this at the address specified in Section 2 of this data protection agreement. The right to restrict processing exists in the following cases:

  • If you dispute the accuracy of your personal data stored with us, we normally need time to verify this. You have the right to request that the processing of your personal data be restricted during the verification period.
  • If the processing of your personal data has been done/is being done unlawfully, you can request the restriction of data processing rather than data deletion.
  • If we no longer need your personal data, but you need it to exercise, defend or assert legal claims, you have the right to request that the processing of your personal data be restricted rather than deleting the data.
  • If you have filed an objection pursuant to Art. 21(1) of the GDPR, both your and our interests must be weighed. Until it has been determined whose interests prevail, you have the right to request that the processing of your personal data be restricted.
If you have restricted the processing of your personal data, this data - apart from its storage - may only be processed with your consent or for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another individual or legal entity or for reasons of important public interest of the European Union or a member state.

3. Data collection on our website

Cookies

Our pages sometimes use so-called cookies. Cookies do not harm your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies help make our website more user-friendly, efficient and secure. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser.

Most of the cookies we use are so-called "session cookies." They are automatically deleted after your visit. Other cookies remain in your device's memory until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognise your browser when you visit the site again.

You can configure your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and only allow cookies in individual cases, exclude the acceptance of cookies in certain cases or in general, and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when you close the browser. Disabling cookies may limit your ability to use some of the functions of this website.

Cookies that are necessary for carrying out electronic communications or for providing certain functions desired by you (e.g. shopping basket function) are stored on the basis of Art. 6(1)(f) of the GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in storing cookies in order to provide its services without technical errors and in an optimised way. If other cookies (e.g. cookies used to analyse your surfing behaviour) are stored, they will be addressed separately in this Privacy Policy.

Server log files

The website provider automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. This includes:

  • browser type and browser version
  • operating system used
  • referrer URL
  • host name of the accessing computer
  • time of the server request
  • IP address

This data will not be combined with data from other sources.

This data is collected on the basis of Art. 6(1)(f) of the GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in displaying its website without technical errors and in an optimised way; for this purpose, the server log files must be stored.

Contact form

If you send us queries via the contact form, we will collect the data entered on the form, including the contact details you provide, in order to answer your query and for any follow-up questions. We will not share this data without your consent.

Thus, the data entered in the contact form will only be processed based on your consent (Art. 6(1)(a) of the GDPR). You may revoke this consent at any time. An informal message sent to us by email is a sufficient way to do this. The legality of the data processing performed prior to the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

We will retain the data you provide on the contact form until you request its deletion, revoke your consent to its storage, or the purpose for its storage no longer applies (e.g. after fulfilling your request). Any mandatory statutory provisions – particularly those regarding data retention periods – remain unaffected.

Query by email, phone or fax

If you contact us by e-mail, phone or fax, your query, including all ensuing personal data (name, query), is stored and used by us for the purposes of processing your request. We will not share this data without your consent.

This data is processed on the basis of Art. 6, par. 1 (b) of the GDPR, provided your request is related to the fulfilment of a contract or necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual arrangements. In all other cases, the processing is based on your consent (Art. 6(1)(a) of the GDPR) and/or on our legitimate interests (Art. 6(1)(f) of the GDPR), as we have a legitimate interest in effectively processing the queries addressed to us.

We will retain the data you provide on the contact form until you request its deletion, your consent to storage is revoked, or the purpose for its storage is no longer applicable (e.g. after your request has been processed). Any mandatory statutory provisions – particularly those regarding mandatory data retention periods – remain unaffected.

No additional data is collected or is only collected on a voluntary basis. We only use this data to send the requested information and do not forward it to third parties.

6. Plugins and Tools

YouTube with extended data protection

Our website uses YouTube plugins. The site is operated by Google Ireland Limited ("Google"), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

We use YouTube in extended data protection mode. According to YouTube, this mode ensures that YouTube does not store any information about visitors to this website before they watch the video. However, the disclosure of data to YouTube partners is not mandatorily excluded by extended data protection mode. YouTube will therefore establish a connection to the Google DoubleClick network regardless of whether you watch a video or not.

You are connected to the YouTube servers as soon as you start a YouTube video on our website. The YouTube server is informed about which of our pages you have visited in the process. If you are logged into your YouTube account, you enable YouTube to directly associate your surfing habits with your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account.

In addition, YouTube can store various cookies on your device once you have started a video. YouTube can use these cookies to gather information on visitors to our website. This information may be used to collect video statistics, improve usability and prevent attempts at fraud, among other things. The cookies will remain on your device until you delete them.

If necessary, further data processing can be triggered after the start of a YouTube video, which we have no influence over.

YouTube is used in the interest of presenting our online offerings in an appealing way. This represents a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6(1)(f) of the GDPR.

You can find more information about data protection on YouTube in its Privacy Policy at: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=de.

Google Web Fonts

This site uses so-called web fonts provided by Google in order to uniformly display fonts. When you open a page, your browser loads the required web fonts into your browser cache in order to display texts and fonts correctly.

To do this, the browser you're using must connect to Google's servers. As a result, Google learns that our website has been accessed via your IP address. Google Web Fonts are used in the interest of presenting our online offerings in a consistent and appealing way. This represents a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6(1)(f) of the GDPR.

If your browser does not support Web Fonts, a default font will be used by your computer.

More information on Google Web Fonts can be found at https://developers.google.com/fonts/faq and in Google's Privacy Policy: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=de.

Google Maps

This site uses the Google Maps service via an API. The provider is Google Ireland Limited ("Google"), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

To use the functions of Google Maps, it is necessary to save your IP address. This information is typically transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. The provider of this site has no influence on this data transmission.

Google Maps is used in the interests of presenting our online offerings in an appealing way and making it easy to find the places we have indicated on the website. This represents a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6(1)(f) of the GDPR.

For more information about how user data is handled, see Google's Privacy Policy:

OpenStreetMap

We use the map service of OpenStreetMap (OSM). The provider is the Open Street Map Foundation (OSMF), 132 Maney Hill Road, Sutton Coldfield, West Midlands, B72 1JU, United Kingdom.

OpenStreetMap may save cookies in your browser for this purpose. These are text files which are stored on your computer and enable your use of the website to be analysed. You can prevent cookies from being stored by configuring your browser software accordingly; 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.

Your location can also be recorded if you have enabled this in your device settings - e.g. on your mobile phone. The provider of this site has no influence on this data transmission. Details can be found in the Privacy Policy of OpenStreetMap at the following link: https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Privacy_Policy.
