Privacy Policy - Data Protection Declaration

1. Data controller

Max Bögl Wind AG, Max-Bögl-Straße 1, 92369 Sengenthal, Germany, as operator of this website (https://neu.mbrenewables.com), is the data controller within the meaning of the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), who alone or together with others decides on the purposes and means of processing personal data (hereinafter referred to as “data”).

 

2. Processing of personal data

According to the GDPR, personal data includes all information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (data subject). A natural person is identifiable if he or she can be identified directly or indirectly, in particular, by assignment to an identifier (such as name, address, telephone number, email address, IP address, location data or special characteristics such as the genetic, economic and social identity of this natural person).

 

Processing means any operation or series of operations carried out with or without the aid of automated procedures in connection with data. This includes, in particular, collection, recording, organisation, arrangement, storage, adaptation or modification, reading, requesting, use, disclosure by transmission, distribution or provision, comparison, linking, restriction, deletion or destruction.

 

You are not required to provide any information in order to use our website. In certain cases, however, we require your name and address and other information so that we can provide the services requested.

 

The same applies, for example, to the sending of information material and goods ordered or to the answering of individual questions. Where this is necessary, we will inform you accordingly. In addition, we process only data that you voluntarily provide us with and, if applicable, data that we automatically collect when you visit our website (e.g., IP address and the names of the sites you visit, the browser you use and your operating system, date and time of access, search engines used, names of downloaded files).

 

If you make use of services, only the data which we need to provide these services is collected. Should we request further data, then this is voluntary information.

 

Your data will be processed only to perform the requested service and to safeguard our own justified business interests.

 

3. Protection of your personal data

We appreciate your interest in our company and our products and services and would like you to feel secure when visiting our website, also with regard to the protection of your data. We take the protection of your data very seriously. Compliance with the provisions of GDPR and the Federal Data Protection Act in its currently valid version is a matter of course for us.

 

We have taken technical and organisational measures to ensure that the data protection regulations are observed both by us and by the external service providers engaged by us. Our employees and the service providers engaged by us are obliged by us to maintain secrecy and to comply with the provisions of GDPR and the German Federal Data Protection Act (Bundesdatenschutzgesetz) as amended from time to time.

 

As part of our obligation to provide information, we would like to make this data protection declaration as transparent as possible. In the following, we describe the earmarking of processing your data, the use of tracking/analysis tools, the use of cookies, and the use of social media plug-ins.

 

4. Earmarking of the processing of personal data

We process the data you provide in accordance with the principles of data economy and earmarking. The principle of earmarking states that data may be collected and processed only for specified, clear and legitimate purposes. Further processing for archiving purposes in the public interest, for scientific or historical research purposes, or for statistical purposes shall not be considered as incompatible with the original purposes.

 

In principle, we process your data for the purpose of answering your queries, processing your orders, or providing you with access to certain information or offers. In order to manage customer relationships, it may also be necessary for us or a service provider engaged by us to use this data to inform you about product offers or to conduct online surveys in order to satisfy the tasks and requirements of our customers in a better manner. Naturally, we conclude agreements with external service providers for order processing in accordance with Art. 28 GDPR, provided that its requirements are met.

 

We will process the data provided by you online only for the purposes communicated to you or as stated above.

 

The gathering of data and its passing on to state institutions and authorities which are entitled to knowledge only takes place in accordance with applicable laws or if we are obliged to do so due to the decision of a court.

 

It goes without saying that we will respect your decision not to provide us with your data in order to support our customer relationship (in particular for direct marketing or market research purposes). We will neither sell your data to third parties nor market it in any other way, unless you have given us your consent.

 

5. Data collected automatically when you visit our website

When using our website, the following data may be processed for organisational and technical reasons: the names of the sites you visit, the browser you use and your operating system, date and time of access, search engines used, names of downloaded files and your IP address.

 

6. Cookies

When you visit one of our websites, we may store information on your computer in the form of a (session) cookie. Cookies are small text files that are sent from a web server to your browser and stored on your computer’s hard drive.

 

Apart from the Internet protocol address, none of the user’s personal data is stored. This information is used to automatically recognise you the next time you visit our websites and to make navigation easier for you. As an example, cookies enable us to adjust a website to your interests or to save your password, so that you don’t need to enter this each time.

 

It goes without saying that you can also view our websites without cookies. If you do not want us to recognise your computer again, you can prevent the saving of cookies on your hard drive by selecting “reject cookies” in your browser settings. Please consult the instructions of your browser provider if you wish to know how this works in an individual case. If you do not accept cookies, this can lead to functional restrictions on the part of our services.

 

7. Use of Google Web Fonts

On this website, we use script libraries and font libraries from Google Webfonts, Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA, to display fonts and graphics correctly and in a user-friendly manner on a variety of browsers. Google Web Fonts are transferred to the browser cache to prevent reloading.

 

By calling up script libraries or font libraries, a connection to Google Inc. is automatically established. It cannot be ruled out that Google may process the data transferred, but we do not have any influence over this.

 

By using our website, you consent to the transmitted data being processed by Google Inc.

 

For more information, please see the privacy policy of Google Inc. at: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/

 

8. Use of MATOMO web analytics

Scope of processing of personal data

 

We use the open source software tool Matomo (formerly PIWIK) on our website to analyse the surfing behaviour of our users. The software sets a cookie on the user’s computer (for cookies see above). If individual pages of our website are called up, the following data is stored:

Two bytes of the IP address of the user’s calling system

The accessed website

The website from which the user accessed the accessed website (referrer)

The subpages that are called from the called web page

The time spent on the website

The frequency of visiting the website

 

The software runs exclusively on the servers of our website. A storage of the personal data of the users takes place only there. The data will not be passed on to third parties. The software is set so that the IP addresses are not stored completely, but 2 bytes of the IP address are masked (e.g.: 192.168.xxx.xxx). In this way, it is no longer possible to assign the shortened IP address to the calling computer.

 

Legal basis for the processing of personal data

The legal basis for the processing of users’ personal data is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.

 

Purpose of the data processing

The processing of the personal data of users enables us to analyse the surfing behaviour of our users. 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. These purposes also include our legitimate interest in processing the data in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. By making the IP address anonymous, the interest of the users in their protection of personal data is sufficiently taken into account.

 

Duration of storage

The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer required for our recording purposes. In our case this is the case after 180 days.

 

Objection and elimination possibility

Cookies are stored on the user’s computer and transmitted by the user to our site. Therefore, you as a user also have full control over the use of cookies. By changing the settings in your Internet browser, you can deactivate or restrict the transmission of cookies. Cookies already stored can be deleted at any time. This can also be done automatically. If cookies are deactivated for our website, it is possible that not all functions of the website can be used to their full extent.

If you use the features mentioned, the information that you have accessed certain pages of our Internet site will be forwarded to the servers of Facebook, Instagram or Twitter.

12. Use of Mapbox map material within our software “Hybrid Tower Configurator Max Bögl”

We have integrated components from Mapbox within our independent software “Hybrid Tower Configurator Max Bögl”. Mapbox is a service and hosting provider of OpenStreetMap based map material. This map material can be accessed by anyone, including those not registered with Mapbox.

The operating company of Mapbox is Mapbox, Inc., 1714 14th Street NW, Washington, DC 20009-4309, USA.

 

By using the software operated by the data controller and on which a Mapbox component (map material) has been integrated, the software on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically prompted by the respective Mapbox component to download a representation of the corresponding Mapbox component from Mapbox. Within the scope of this technical procedure, Mapbox is informed about which specific map contents of our software are retrieved by the data subject. The purpose of the integration of the Mapbox component is to enable our users to display geographical data using maps within this software.

 

This process only takes place after downloading and when actively using our software “Hybrid Tower Configurator Max Bögl”, not when visiting our website www.mbrenewables.com.
