  1. Which data do we process when you visit our website?

8.1. Provision of the website and creation of logfiles

The temporary storage of your personal data (e.g. IP address) by us is necessary to enable the website to be delivered to your computer. For this purpose your personal data must be stored for the duration of the session.

Your personal data is stored in log files to ensure the functionality of the website. In addition, your personal data serves to optimize the website and to ensure the security of our information technology systems. Your personal data will not be processed in any other way.

The legal basis for the processing of your personal data in the context of providing the website and creating log files is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.

Your personal data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer required for the purpose of their collection. In the case of collection of your personal data for the purpose of providing the website, this is done as soon as you have left the website.

The collection of your personal data for the provision of the website and the storage of your personal data in log files is absolutely necessary for the operation of the website. Therefore you have no possibility to object.


8.2. Contact form and e-mail contact

The purpose of processing your personal data in the event of establishing contact is solely to process your request. We would like to point out that we cannot guarantee the confidentiality of unencrypted e-mails. If you wish to send us sensitive information, we recommend that you use encrypted e-mail communication or contact us by telephone or post.

The legal basis for the processing of your personal data transmitted in the course of establishing contact is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. If the purpose of establishing contact is to conclude a contract, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR shall be an additional legal basis for the processing of your personal data.

Your personal data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer required for the purpose of their collection. In the event of personal data sent in the context of establishing contact, such data will be deleted when your request has been processed and if legal storage periods do not prevent a deletion.

You have the possibility at any time to object to the processing of your personal data in the context of establishing contact in the future. In this case, however, we cannot process your request further. In this case, all personal data stored in the course of establishing contact will be deleted, unless legal retention periods prevent such deletion.


8.3. Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, the web analysis service of Google Inc. (hereinafter ”Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called ”cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how you use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, if IP anonymization is activated on this website, Google will previously reduce your IP address within member states of the European Union or in other states party to the Convention on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and reduced there. On our behalf, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activities and to provide us with further services related to website and Internet use. The IP address transmitted by your Internet browser in the context of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.

The processing of your personal data enables us to analyze your usage behavior. By evaluating the data obtained, we are able to compile information on the use of the individual components of our website. This helps us to constantly improve our website and its user-friendliness. The anonymization of your IP address shall be sufficient to take into account your interest in the protection of personal data.

The legal basis for the processing of your personal data shall be Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.

Your personal data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer required for our aforementioned purposes. In our case, this is will be after 12 months.

If you do not want your data to be collected by Google Analytics, you can install the browser add-on to deactivate Google Analytics. This add-on instructs the JavaScript of Google Analytics (ga.js, analytics.js and dc.js) executed on websites to not allow the sending of information to Google Analytics.

If you want to deactivate Google Analytics, go to this page and install the Google Analytics deactivation add-on for your web browser. For detailed information on installing and uninstalling the add-on, please refer to the relevant help resources for your Internet browser.

Browser and operating system updates may cause the deactivation add-on to no longer work as intended. More information about managing add-ons for Chrome is available here. If you are not using Chrome, check directly with the manufacturer of your Internet browser to see if add-ons work properly in the browser version you are using.

The latest versions of Internet Explorer occasionally load the add-on to disable Google Analytics after data have been sent to Google Analytics. Therefore, if you use Internet Explorer, the add-on will install cookies on your computer. These cookies ensure that any data collected is immediately deleted from the server that collected the data. Make sure that third-party cookies are not disabled for Internet Explorer. If you delete your cookies, the add-on will reset these cookies within a short period of time to ensure that your Google Analytics browser add-on will continue to work properly.

The browser add-on for deactivating Google Analytics does not prevent data from being sent to the website or to other web analysis services.

IP anonymization is activated on this website.


8.4. Salesforce Pardot

We use the Pardot Marketing Automation System (”Pardot MAS”) by PardotLLC, 950 E. Paces Ferry Rd. Suite 3300 Atlanta, GA 30326, USA (”Pardot“). Pardot is a Salesforce software module for recording and evaluating the use of a website by website visitors. Personal data provided voluntarily is first stored in Pardot and then processed with the Salesforce CRM system for the purpose of establishing contact and/or sending information. Salesforce does not store IP addresses, but uses the individual mapping characteristics ”unique visitor ID” and ”unique identifier“. Conclusions about you personally are not possible.

When you visit our website, Pardot MAS records your click path and creates an individual user profile using a pseudonym. For this purpose, cookies are used which allow recognition of your browser. The cookies set are a ”Visitor Cookie” and a ”Pardot App Session 5 Cookie“. An identification number is generated via the ”Visitor Cookie”, which is used to recognize the browser of the website visitor. The identification number is a generated numerical code that has no meaning outside Pardot Services. The ”Pardot App Session Cookie” is only set when a customer logs in to the Pardot App as a user. All cookies only receive the generated number code.

E-mails that are sent with the help of Pardot use tracking technologies. We use this information to find out which topics are of interest to you by tracking whether our e-mails are opened and which links you click on. We then use this information to improve the e-mails we send you and the services we provide.

The legal basis for the processing of your personal data is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.

Your personal data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer required for our aforementioned purposes. In our case, this is will be after 12 months.

If you do not want your data to be used for the creation of pseudonymized user profiles, you can deactivate this function at any time by configuring your Internet browser so that cookies from the domain ”pardot.com” are not accepted. You can deactivate the storage of cookies in your browser settings. However, this may lead to certain limitations in the functions and user-friendliness of our offer.

8.5. Google Maps

What do we process your data for and on what legal basis?

Our website uses the map service Google Maps by Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (”Google”). In order for the Google map material we use to be integrated and displayed in your web browser, your web browser must connect to a Google server, which may also be located in the USA, when you access the contact page. In the event that personal data is transferred to the USA, Google has subjected itself to the EU-US Privacy Shield. Google thereby receives the information that the contact page of our website was called up from the IP address of your device.

The use of Google Maps is in the interest of an attractive presentation of our online offers and easy findability of the locations we have indicated on the website.

The legal basis for the processing of your personal data is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.

Your personal data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer required for our aforementioned purposes. In our case, this is will be after 12 months.

You can object to this data collection towards Google.

For more information, please see Google's privacy policy at https://policies.google.com/privacy and the additional terms of use for Google Maps at https://www.google.com/intl/en_US/help/terms_maps/ . An opt-out of the service can be made under Opt-Out: https://adssettings.google.com/authenticated.


8.6. Social media plug-ins

YouTube

The processing of your personal data by YouTube serves the purpose of an appealing, uniform presentation of video content on our website, independent of your terminal device.

We use YouTube videos in enhanced privacy mode. This mode has the effect that no further information about the visitor is stored on our website beyond the integration. Your personal data will therefore be deleted as soon as they are no longer required for the purpose of their collection. This is the case at the latest after the end of your visit to our website.

The processing of your personal data, which are processed for the integration of YouTube videos, is mandatory. Therefore you have no possibility to object.

Facebook

Our website contains functions of the social network Facebook (so-called plug-ins). These plug-ins are operated by Facebook Inc, 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (”Facebook”). Controller for the data protection compliant operation of the plug-ins is therefore exclusively Facebook.

The legal basis for the data processing described above, insofar as we are responsible for it, is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR (weighing of interests on the basis of our legitimate interest in being able to make our contents accessible to a larger group of users).

For the purpose and scope of data collection by Facebook and the further processing and use of your data there, as well as your rights and setting options for the protection of your privacy, please refer to the Facebook privacy information (https://en-gb.facebook.com/privacy/explanation).

For efficient processing of messages from Facebook users, these messages, as well as the master data of the corresponding profile, are also processed outside the TLV Facebook page in systems for which TLV is responsible. The data will be deleted after 6 months;

For information on data deletion and storage period of Facebook, please go to: https://en-gb.facebook.com/about/privacy/update
(section ”Data storage, deactivation and deletion of accounts“)

Data Protection Officer of Facebook Ireland Ltd.
https://www.facebook.com/help/contact/540977946302970

If the plug-in is activated when you visit the website, your browser will establish a direct connection with the Facebook servers, whereby the content of the plug-in (e.g. ”Like” or ”Share” button) is transmitted to your browser and integrated into our website. Through this, the information that you have visited our website is forwarded to Facebook. If you are logged in to Facebook via your personal user account while visiting our website, Facebook can allocate the website visit to this account. Through interaction with plug-ins, e.g. by clicking the ”Like” button or leaving a comment, the corresponding information is collected directly by Facebook and stored there. If you want to prevent this, you must log out of your Facebook account before activating plug-ins.

Other social media features

At different places on our website we offer functionalities of social networks. These include, among others:

This means that the social bookmarks (buttons) are included as links. By clicking on the buttons, you will be redirected to our page at the respective providers, i.e. your information, e.g. URL, is only transferred to the respective provider when you click on it for the first time and are redirected.

The so-called ”Social Login” is a supplement to the conventional login to our online offers.

On our website we use the following social media plug-ins with this so-called two-click solution:
