Data privacy statement

Data privacy statement

We thank you for your interest in our company. Data protection is of high importance for the management of INNO TAPE GmbH. The website of INNO TAPE GmbH can principally be used without entering personal data. If the processing of personal data is necessary and no legal basis exists for such processing, we principally ask for an approval from the person concerned.

The processing of personal data, for example the name, the address, the e-mail address or the phone number of a person concerned, is always in conformity with the General Data Protection Regulation, the German Data Protection Act and in conformity with the data protection regulations valid for INNO TAPE GmbH. By this data privacy statement we want to inform the public on type, scope and purpose of the personal data which we collect, use and process. Furthermore the persons affected are informed about the rights they have.

As entity responsible for the processing, INNO TAPE GmbH has implemented technical and organisational measures in order to ensure an as comprehensive as possible protection of the personal data processed via this website. However, safety gaps generally may occur in case of internet based data transfers so that an absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, it is up to every person concerned to transmit personal data to us on optional ways, e.g. by phone.

1. Definitions of terms

The data privacy statement of INNO TAPE GmbH is based on terms which were used by the European legislative and regulatory authority when issuing the General Data Protection Regulation (Datenschutz-Grundverordnung - DSGVO).

A natural person is considered to be identifiable if it can be identified directly or indirectly, especially by means of assignment to an identification feature as a name, a code number, location data, an online identification or to one or several personal features which are an expression of the physical, physiological, genetic, psychical, economical, cultural or social identity of this natural person.

b. Person concerned

A person concerned is every identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data is processed by the entity responsible for the processing.

c. Processing

Processing means every process carried out with or without the help of an automated procedure or every set of operations in connection with personal data as the collection, the registration, the organisation, the classification, the storage, the adaptation or the change, the reading, the inquiry, the use, the disclosure by transmission, the dissemination or another form of provision, the comparison or the linkage, the restriction, the deletion or the destruction.

d. Restriction of processing

The restriction of processing is the marking of stored personal data with the objective to restrict its future processing.

Profiling is any type of automated processing of personal data which consists in using personal data to assess certain personal aspects which refer to a natural person and especially to analyse or predict aspects of the work performance, the economic situation, the health, the personal preferences, the interests, the reliability, the behaviour, the residence or the change of location of this natural person.

f. Pseudonymisation

Pseudonymisation is the processing of personal data in a way that personal data cannot be assigned to a specific person concerned without additional information, provided this additional information is stored separately and subject to technical and organisational measures which ensure that the personal data cannot be assigned to an identified or identifiable natural person.

g. Person or entity responsible for the processing

The person or the entity responsible for processing is the natural or legal person, authority, institution or other entity which decides alone or together with others on the purposes and means of processing of personal data.

h. Job processor

The job processor is a natural or a legal person, authority, institution or another body that processes personal data on behalf of the responsible entity.

i. Recipient

The recipient is a natural or legal person, an authority, an institution or another body that discloses personal data independently from the fact whether it is a third party or not. However, authorities which possibly receive personal data in the scope of a specific order for investigation according to the European Union law or the law of the member states, are not considered as recipient.

j. Third party

A third party is a natural or legal person, authority, institution or another body except the person affect, the responsible entity, the job processor and the persons who are authorised to process personal data under the direct responsibility of the responsible entity or the job processor.

k. Approval

4. Cookies

The website of INNO TAPE GmbH uses cookies. Cookies are text files which are filed and stored via an internet browser on a computer system.

Numerous websites and servers use cookies. Many cookies include a so-called cookie-ID. A cookie-ID is a unique identification of the cookie. It consists of a character string by which it is possible to assign the websites and the server to a specific internet browser by storing the cookie. The websites and servers visited are consequently able to differentiate between the individual browser of the person concerned and the other internet browsers which include other cookies. A specific internet browser can be recognised and identified via the unique cookie ID.

INNO TAPE GmbH is able to provide more user-friendly services to the users of this website thanks to the use of cookies than this would be possible without setting cookies.

Information on our website can be optimised in the interest of the user by means of a cookie. As already mentioned, we are able to recognise the user of our website by the cookies. The purpose of recognition is to make it easier to the user to use our website.

The person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies by our website anytime by means of a corresponding setting of the internet browser use. Thereby it is possible to object to the setting of cookies permanently. Furthermore it is possible to delete cookies which are already set via an internet browser or another software programme anytime. This is possible with all common internet browsers. If a person concerned deactivates the setting of cookies in the internet browser used, it is possible that not all functions of our website can be used to the full extent.

5. Collection of general data and information

The website of INNO TAPE GmbH collects a series of general data and information with every access to our website by a person concerned. These general data and information is stored in the log files of the server. The following can be recorded:

(1) the browser types and versions used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the website from which an accessing system is referred to our website (so-called referrer), (4) the sub-pages which are activated on our websites by an accessing system, (5) the date and the time of an access to our website, (6) an internet protocol address (IP address), (7) the internet service provider of the accessing system and () other similar data and information which is used to defend dangers in case of attacks to our information technology systems.

When using this general data and information INNO TAPE GmbH does not draw any conclusions on the person concerned. This information is rather necessary

(1) to provide the contents of our website correctly, (2) to optimise the contents of our website, (3) to guarantee the permanent functionality of our information technology systems and the technology of our website and (4) to provide the necessary information to the law enforcement agencies in case of a cyber attack for prosecution purposes.

Therefore these anonymously collected data and information is evaluated by INNO TAPE GmbH statistically and with the objective to increase the data protection and data security in our company to finally ensure an optimal protection level for the personal data we process. The anonymous data of the server log files is stored separately from all other personal data indicated by a person concerned.

6. Contact possibility via the website

In view of the legal regulations, the website of INNO TAPE GmbH includes information which makes a quick electronic contact to our company and a direct communication possible. This includes a general address for so-called electronic mails (e-mail address). If a person concerned contacts INNO TAPE GmbH by e-mail or via a contact form, the personal data transmitted by the person concerned is automatically stored. Such personal data transmitted from a person concerned to INNO TAPE GmbH is stored for the purpose of processing and contacting the person concerned. This personal data is not disclosed to third persons.

7. Routine deletion and blocking of personal data

INNO TAPE GmbH processes and stores personal data of the person concerned only for the period for which this is necessary to achieve the purpose of storage and if this is stipulated by the European legislative and regulatory authority or another legislator in laws or regulations to which INNO TAPE GmbH is subject.

If the purpose of storage does not apply anymore or if a storage period prescribed by the European legislative and regulatory authority or another responsible legislator expires, the personal data is blocked or deleted by routine according to the legal regulations.

10. Privacy policy on the use and application of Google Analytics (with anonymization function)

INNO TAPE GmbH has integrated the Google Analytics component (with anonymization function) on this website. Google Analytics is a web analysis service. Web analysis is the collection, compilation and evaluation of data about the behavior of visitors to websites. A web analysis service collects, among other things, data on which website a data subject came to a website from (so-called referrers), which subpages of the website were accessed or how often and for how long a subpage was viewed. A web analysis is mainly used for the optimization of a website and for the cost-benefit analysis of internet advertising.

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

We use the add-on "_gat._anonymizeIp" for web analysis via Google Analytics. By means of this add-on, the IP address of the Internet connection of the person concerned is shortened and anonymized by Google if access to our Internet pages takes place from a member state of the European Union or from another state party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.

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

Google Analytics sets a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. What cookies are has already been explained above. By setting the cookie, Google is enabled to analyze the use of our website. By each call of one of the individual pages of this website, which is operated by the controller and on which a Google Analytics component has been integrated, the internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically caused by the respective Google Analytics component to transmit data to Google for the purpose of online analysis. As part of this technical process, Google obtains knowledge of personal data, such as the IP address of the data subject, which Google uses, among other things, to track the origin of visitors and clicks and subsequently enable commission calculations.

By means of the cookie, personal information, for example the access time, the place from which an access originated and the frequency of visits to our website by the data subject, is stored. Each time the data subject visits our website, this personal data, including the IP address of the internet connection used by the data subject, is transmitted to Google in the United States of America. This personal data is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may pass on this personal data collected via the technical procedure to third parties.

You can prevent the setting of cookies by our website, as already described above, at any time by means of an appropriate setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to 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 data subject. In addition, a cookie already set by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time via the internet browser or other software programs.

Furthermore, you have the option to object to the collection of data generated by Google Analytics and related to the use of this website, as well as the processing of this data by Google, and to prevent such processing. To do this, you must download and install a browser add-on under the link tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout. This browser add-on tells 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 an objection. If the information technology system of the data subject is deleted, formatted or reinstalled at a later point in time, the data subject must reinstall the browser add-on in order to deactivate Google Analytics. Provided that the browser add-on is uninstalled or deactivated by the data subject or another person attributable to his or her sphere of control, there is the option of reinstalling or reactivating the browser add-on.

Further information and the applicable Google privacy policy can be found at www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/ and at www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html. Google Analytics is explained in more detail under this link www.google.com/intl/de_de/analytics/.

11. Legal basis of processing

We use art. 6 I lit. a DSGVO as legal basis for the processing activities with which we obtain an approval for a specific purpose of processing. If the processing of personal data is necessary to perform a contract to which the person concerned is party, as for example in case of processing activities which are necessary to supply goods or render other services or provide consideration, the processing is based on art. 6 lit. b DSGVO: The same applies for such processing activities which 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 a processing of personal data, as for example the compliance with tax obligations, the processing is based on art. 6 I lit. c DSGVO. The processing of personal data could be possible in rare cases to protect vital interests of the person concerned or another natural person. This would be the case for example if a visitor in our company is injured and his name, his age, his health insurance data or other vital information would have to be communicated to a physician, a hospital or other third parties. In this case, the processing would be based on art. 6 I lit. d DSGVO. Finally, processing activities can be based on art. 6 I lit. f DSGVO. Processing activities which are not covered by one of the previously mentioned legal bases are founded on this legal basis if the processing is necessary to protect a justified interest of our company or a third party, provided the interests, the fundamental rights and the fundamental freedom of the person concerned do not prevail. Therefore it is possible that such processing activities are especially permitted as they have been especially mentioned by the European legislator. Insofar it was its opinion that a justified interest could be assumed if a person concerned is a customer of the responsible entity (recital 47 phrase 2 DSGVO).

12.  Justified interests in the processing which are pursued by the responsible entity or a third party

If the processing of personal data is based on art. 6 I lit. f DSGVO, our justified interest is to carry out our business activity in favour of the well-being of all of our employees and our shareholders.

13. Duration of the storage of personal data

The criterion for the duration of the storage of personal data is the respective legal retention period. After expiry of this period, the corresponding data is deleted by routine, if it is not necessary to perform or initiate a contract.

14. Legal or contractual regulations for the provision of personal data; necessity for the contract conclusion; obligation of the person concerned to provide personal data; possible consequences in case of a failure to provide

We herewith inform you that the provision of personal data is partially legally prescribed (e.g. tax regulations) or may result from contract provisions (e.g. details on the contract partner). Sometimes it can be necessary for the conclusion of a contract that a person concerned makes available to us personal data which we have to process afterwards. The person concerned is for example obliged to provide personal data if our company concludes a contract with this person. A failure to provide the personal data would result in a failure to conclude the contract with the person concerned. The person concerned must contact one of our employees before he/she provides personal data. On a case-by-case basis our employee informs the person concerned whether the provision of the personal data is legally or contractually prescribed or necessary for contract conclusion, whether there is an obligation to provide personal data and which consequences the failure to provide personal data would have.

15. Existence of an automated decision-making

As responsible company we waive an automatic decision-making or a profiling.
