Types of data processed

Within the scope of business transactions, business initiation, operation and use of our website or simply when you are interested in our company, we process and use personal data that you provide directly or indirectly. This includes, for example: names, addresses, contact data (e-mails, telephone numbers); entries made by you (texts, photographs, videos); the recording of visited websites and protocols thereof, interests in content, access times, as well as device information, IP addresses, etc.
No special categories of data within the meaning of Art. 9 para. 1 GDPR are processed.

Legal basis

In accordance with Art. 13 GDPR, we explain the legal basis of our data processing in this paragraph. Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR is the legal basis for the processing of contractual or pre-contractual measures. lnsofar as we are forced to process data within the framework of legal obligations, this is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c GDPR. With a view to safeguard our legitimate interests, data processing is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. lf none of the aforementioned legal bases are relevant, we will carry out the processing, if we have your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a and Art. 7 GDPR).

Data security

Unauthorized attempts to access personal data represent a reality that private individuals and companies have to face every day. Since data protection is a high priority for us, we invest in the security of our systems and constantly monitor them. The protection of your personal data is important to us. Therefore, taking into account the state of technology, the implementation costs and the nature, scope, circumstances, and purposes of the data processing, as well as the varying probability of occurrence and severity of the risk of abuse of the rights and freedom of natural persons, we implement technical and organizational measures designed to prevent the misuse, loss, incorrect alteration of personal data, access by unauthorized third parties and attacks (Art. 32 DSGVO). In all these measures, reference should be made, among other things, to maintaining the confidentiality, integrity and availability of data by controlling its physical access, input, disclosure, secure availability and separation. In the context of the development or acquisition of new hardware and software and the associated introduction of new processes, we make particular efforts to comply with the principles of data protection in the best possible way.

Cooperation with data processors and third parties

lf we use other persons and companies (data processors or third parties) for processing the data, it shall in principle be based on one of the above-mentioned legal bases. Furthermore, with these cooperation partners, data is basically processed on the basis of a “data processing agreement” see Art. 28 GDPR. Such cooperation partners can be, for example, external recruitment agencies or external providers of IT services and network services.

Data transfer within the adapa Group

Within the adapa Group of Companies, your personal data will be transmitted for one of the purposes listed below or, if necessary, due to legitimate interests as defined by Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR, for the purposes of internal administrative activities, at group level between affiliated companies. Our company organisation ensures that the companies of adapa meet the data protection level of the European Union.

Data transmission to third countries

Should data be transferred to a third country (i.e. outside the European Union (EU) or the European Economic Area (EEA)) and processed there, this will only take place to the extent that it can be based on one of the above-mentioned legal bases and within the framework of the provisions of Art. 44 ff. GDPR (General principles of data transmission). This means that the data is either transferred to a secure third country or processed in compliance with officially recognised special contractual obligations (so-called “standard contractual clauses”). Safe third countries are those countries to which the European Commission has confirmed an adequate level of data protection comparable to EU law by means of an Adequacy Decision. Safe third countries include Andorra, Argentina, Canada (commercial organisations only), Faroe lslands, Guernsey, Israel, lsle of Man, Jersey, New Zealand, Switzerland, Uruguay and Japan.

Use of cookies

Cookies are used on our website. Cookies typically contain data about the web page visited, which the web browser stores while surfing. lf the user calls up our website again via the corresponding server, the browser of the user of our website sends the cookie received previously back again. This enables the server to evaluate the information received and to facilitate navigation on a website or to control the display of advertising.

Cookies can only contain information that was sent to your computer by us. No private data can be processed in this way. lf you allow the use of cookies on our pages, there is no possibility for us to access your personal data. With the help of cookies, we can recognise your computer when you visit our site again.

By configuring the Internet browser on your computer, i.e., the application which you use to provide or display Internet pages (such as Microsoft Edge, Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Opera, Google Chrome or Safari), the use of cookies can be excluded. In this case, certain functions on our pages may no longer be available to you or may not be displayed correctly.

lt is possible that our cooperation advertising partners may also store their own third-party cookies on your computer. This happens, for example, in connection with advertising measures on third-party websites (retargeting or the use of social plug-ins).

None of the cookies used contain personal data. lt is not possible to assign the cookies to you as a natural person, only the computer used can be recognised. This is only possible in terms of time until the cookies are deleted or delete themselves due to their programming.

Integration of third-party services and content

Within the scope of this online presence, third-party content, such as videos from YouTube, map material from Google Maps, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites may be integrated (so-called “third-party providers”). A prerequisite here is always that the providers of this content are aware of the IP address of the users, since without this IP address their content cannot reach your browser. We make every effort to use only content whose third-party provider uses the IP address only to deliver the content. We have no influence on the fact that third party providers may record your IP address for statistical purposes.

Google Analytics

We use Google Analytics on our websites. This is a service of Google lnc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA, 94043, USA (“Google”).
