(1) In addition to using our website for purely informational purposes, we also offer a range of services available for use to those interested. These usually require you to enter additional personal information that we use to deliver the respective service and for the previously named principles of data processing.
    
(2) We occasionally use external service providers to process your data. We select and contract these carefully, and they are bound by our instructions and are regularly audited.
    
(3) Insofar as our service providers or partners are based in a country outside of the European Economic Area (EEA), we will inform you of the consequences of this in the description of the offer.

(1) If you have given us your consent to process your personal data, you are entitled to withdraw such consent at any time. Such a revocation affects the permissibility of the processing of your data once you expressed it to us.

(2) Insofar as we base the processing of your personal data on the balance of interests, you may object to the processing. This is the case if, in particular, the processing is not necessary for fulfilling a contract with you, which we will describe in each case in the description of functions below. When exercising such an objection, we ask that you provide reasons for the objection as to why we should not process your personal data. In the event of a justified objection, we will examine the situation and will either discontinue or adapt the data processing or inform you of the legitimate reasons on the grounds of which we will continue the processing.

(3) Naturally, you have the right to object to the processing of your data for the purposes of advertising and data analysis at any time. You can file your objection to advertising using the following contact details: datenschutz@boewe-systec.com.

(1) Our website uses the web analytics platform Matamo to analyze user traffic on our website. The statistics compiled in this way allow us to improve our offer and make it more interesting to you. The legal basis for its use is art. 6 para. 1 P.1 lit. f GDPR.

(2) For this analysis, cookies (see § 4 for further information) are stored on your computer. All information collected in this way is stored on our server in Germany only. If you do not allow the use of cookies, we would like to advise you that you may not be able to enjoy all the services provided by our website. You may prevent the use of cookies via the preferences in your browser.
You may also disable the analysis through Matamo of your visit to our website by clicking on the following checkbox (opt-out).

(3) Our website uses Matamo with the AnonymizeIP add-on to shorten IP addresses for further processing. This prevents personalization of the information. The IP address shared by your browser via Matamo is not linked to any other data collected by us.

(4) Matamo is an open source project. Information of this third-party provider’s privacy policy is available at https://matomo.org/privacy-policy/.

(1) We currently use the following social media plugins: Google+, Twitter, Xing, LinkedIn.

(2) By visiting third-party websites, the providers of these websites obtain the information that you have accessed the respective subsection of our website. In addition, the data specified in § 3 of this policy is made available to them. In the case of Facebook and Xing, the IP address is anonymized immediately after collection, according to the respective provider in Germany. Activating the plugin transmits your personal data to the respective plugin provider, where it is stored (in the case of US providers, this is in the USA). Because the plugin provider primarily uses cookies for data collection, we recommend using your browser’s security settings to delete all cookies before clicking on the greyed-out button.

(3) We have no influence on the data collected and the data processing processes and are not aware of the scope of data collection, the purpose of processing or the storage duration. We also have no information on deleting data collected by the plugin provider.

(4) The plugin provider stores the data it collects on you in the form of user profiles and uses them for advertising, market research, and/or for the personalization of their website. Such analysis is completed in particular to display user-specific advertising even for users who are not logged in and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have the right to object to the creation of such user profiles by contacting the respective plugin provider. The plugins allow us to offer you the option to interact with the social networks and other users so that we can improve our offer and make it more interesting to you. The legal basis for the use of plugins is art. 6 para. 1 p.1 lit. f GDPR.

(5) The data transfer occurs regardless of whether you have an account with the plugin provider or are logged in there. If you are logged in to the plugin provider, the data collected while on our site is directly associated with your existing account with the plugin provider. When you use the activated button and, for example, link the page, the plugin provider also stores this information in your user account and publicly shares it with your contacts. We recommend regularly logging out of social networks after use and particularly before activating the button to prevent association to your profile by the plugin provider.

(6) Further information on the scope and purpose of data collection and the way the data is processed by the plugin provider is available in the respective plugin provider’s privacy policy information below. Please refer to this policy for further details on your rights and options to protect your privacy.

If you do not want your YouTube profile to be associated in this way, you must first log out before activating the button. YouTube stores your data in the form of user profiles and uses these for advertising, market research, and/or for the personalization of their website. Such analysis is completed in particular to display user-specific advertising even for users who are not logged in and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website.
