Privacy Policy
24.05.2018

Thank you for visiting our website and for your interest in H-Bau Technik GmbH and our services. To make you feel safe and comfortable when you visit our website, we take the protection of your personal data and its confidential treatment very seriously.

With this information on data protection we would therefore like to inform you when we store which data and for what purpose we use it – naturally in compliance with the applicable data protection regulations.

Should you have any further questions regarding the handling of your personal data, please do not hesitate to contact our Data Protection Officer, whose contact details you will find below.

The constant technological development, changes in our services or the legal situation as well as other reasons may require adjustments to our Privacy Policy. We therefore reserve the right to change this data protection declaration at any time and ask you to inform yourself regularly about the current status.

Basic information

Unless otherwise stated in the following sections, no personal data is collected, processed or used when using our websites.

When you access our Internet pages, our Web servers automatically collect general information. This includes the type of web browser, the operating system used, the domain name of the Internet service provider, the IP address of the computer used, the website from which you visit us, the pages you visit on our site and the date and duration of your visit.

This data cannot be used by us to identify the individual user. We only evaluate the information statistically and use it exclusively to improve the attractiveness, contents and functionalities of our websites.

Definition of personal data

The term personal data is defined in the German Federal Data Protection Act. According to this, these are individual details about personal or factual circumstances of a specific or identifiable natural person. This includes, for example, your real name, your address, your telephone number or your date of birth.

In the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), personal data is defined as follows:

Any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter "data subject"); an identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.

Legal basis for the collection of personal data

Insofar as we obtain your consent for the processing of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing of your personal data.

When processing your personal data to fulfil a contract between you and H-Bau Technik GmbH, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures.

Insofar as the processing of personal data is required to fulfil a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c GDPR serves as the legal basis.

If processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the first-mentioned interest, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing.

Data erasure and storage period

The personal data of the data subject will be erased or the processing restricted blocked as soon as the purpose of storage ceases to apply. Furthermore, data may be stored if this has been provided for by the European or national legislator in EU regulations, laws or other provisions to which the controller is subject. The data will also be restricted or deleted if a storage period prescribed by the aforementioned legal provisions expires, unless there is a need for further storage of the data for the conclusion or fulfilment of a contract.

Collection and processing of personal data

Personal data is only collected if you provide it voluntarily, for example to carry out an order, a survey, a competition or a registration for personalised services. There you will be informed about the intended purpose of processing and, if necessary, asked for your consent to storage.

The personal data collected within the framework of our websites will only be used without your consent for order processing or processing your enquiries. You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future.

Your data is encrypted before transmission and processing in order to protect it from access by unauthorised persons. Please note that unencrypted e-mails are transmitted without access protection.

Your data will not be sold, rented or made available to third parties in any other way than described here. Personal data will only be transferred to state institutions and authorities within the framework of mandatory national legislation. Our employees, agencies and dealers are bound by us to the strictest confidentiality.

Contact

You can contact us via our e-mail address or by telephone. The personal data transmitted to us in this way will of course only be used for the purpose for which you made them available to us when contacting us.

If you use our contact form and we request information that is not required to establish contact, we have always marked it as optional. These details serve us to substantiate your inquiry and to improve the processing of your request. Providing this information takes place expressly on voluntary basis and with your consent. If this involves information on communication channels (e.g. e-mail address, telephone number), you also agree that we may contact you via this communication channel in order to respond to your request.

You can of course revoke this consent at any time with effect for the future. For this, please contact our data protection officer, whose contact details you will find below.

Newsletter

For the registration to our newsletter we use the so-called double opt-in procedure. This means that we will send you a confirmation e-mail to the specified e-mail address, in which we ask you to confirm that you would like the newsletter to be sent. If you do not confirm this within 24 hours, your registration will be automatically deleted. If you confirm your wish to receive the newsletter, we will store your e-mail address and your name until you unsubscribe from the newsletter. This data is stored solely for the purpose of sending you the newsletter. Furthermore, we store your IP addresses and the times at registration and confirmation to prevent misuse of your personal data. Your data will not be passed on to third parties.

The only mandatory information for sending the newsletter is your e-mail address and your name. The indication of further, separately marked data is voluntary and will only be used for a personalization of the newsletter. This data will also be completely deleted upon revocation.

You can revoke your consent to receive the newsletter at any time. You can declare your revocation by clicking on the link provided in every newsletter e-mail, by e-mail to info@h-bau.de or by sending a message to the data protection officer. With the revocation we will only save the time of registration and cancellation in connection with your newsletter order in order to be able to prove that we have acted in accordance with the law during your consent.

Application

You can apply to our company via e-mail. We will of course use your details exclusively for processing your application and will not pass them on to third parties. Please note that unencrypted e-mails are transmitted without access protection.

If you have applied for a specific position and it has already been filled or if we consider you suitable for another position, we would be happy to forward your application within the company. We will write to you separately. Your personal data will be deleted immediately after completion of the application process or after a maximum of 6 months, unless you have expressly given us your consent for a longer storage of your data.

Data transmission to other Group companies

A transfer of your data to third parties does not take place, unless we are legally obliged to do so, or the transfer of data is necessary for the execution of the contractual relationship, or you have previously expressly consented to the transfer of your data. External service providers and partner companies only receive your data if this is necessary to process their request. In these cases, however, the scope of the transmitted data is limited to the required minimum. As far as our service providers come into contact with your personal data, we ensure that they comply with the regulations of the data protection laws in the same way. Please also note the respective data protection information of the providers. The respective service provider is responsible for the contents of external services, whereby we check the services within the scope of reasonability for compliance with legal requirements.

Data transmission to external service providers

Your data will be passed on to service partners if they are working on our behalf and support H-Bau Technik GmbH in the provision of their services.

Processing of your personal data by service providers takes place within the scope of order processing in accordance with Art. 28 GDPR.

The aforementioned service providers only have access to such personal information as is necessary for the performance of their respective activities. These service providers are prohibited from disclosing your personal information or using it for other purposes, in particular for their own advertising purposes.

Where external service providers come into contact with your personal data, we have taken legal, technical and organisational measures and carried out regular checks to ensure that they also comply with the applicable data protection regulations.

Your personal data will not be passed on commercially to other companies.

We use so-called cookies in some areas of our pages. A cookie is a small text file that is placed on your hard drive by a website. Cookies do not cause any damage to your computer and do not contain any viruses. The cookies on our Internet pages do not collect any personal data. We use the information contained in cookies to make it easier for you to use our pages and to tailor them to your needs.

We use both session cookies and permanent cookies on our site. Session cookies are temporary cookies that are stored in the user's Internet browser until the browser window is closed and the session cookies are deleted. Permanent cookies are used for repeated visits and stored in the user's browser for a certain period of time (usually 1 year or longer). These cookies are not deleted when the browser is closed. This type of cookie is used to reuse a user's preferences when returning to the site.

Of course, you can also view our website without cookies. If you do not want cookies to be stored on your computer, you can deactivate the corresponding option in the system settings of your browser. You can delete saved cookies at any time in the system settings of your browser. You can find out how this works in detail from your browser manufacturer's instructions. However, we would like to point out that our website may allow only limited use without cookies.

We use the following technology from Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; "Google"):

Google Tag Manager

For reasons of transparency, we would like to point out that we use the Google Tag Manager. Google Tag Manager itself does not collect any personal data. The Tag Manager makes it easier for us to integrate and manage our tags. Tags are small code elements used, among other things, to measure traffic and visitor behavior, to measure the impact of online advertising and social channels, to set up remarketing and targeting, and to test and optimize websites. We use the Tag Manager for the Google Analytics service. If you have made a deactivation, this deactivation will be considered by Google Tag Manager. For more information about the Google Tag Manager see: https://www.google.com/intl/de/tagmanager/use-policy.html.

Google Analytics

The website also uses Google Analytics. The use includes the "Universal Analytics" operating mode. This makes it possible to assign data, sessions and interactions across multiple devices to a pseudonymous user ID and thus analyze a user's activities across devices.

Google Analytics uses "cookies", which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users 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 anonymisation is activated on this website, Google will reduce your IP address within Member States of the European Union or in other states party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area beforehand. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. The IP address transmitted by your browser in the context of Google Analytics is not merged with other Google data. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide the website operator with other services relating to website and Internet use. Our legitimate interest in data processing also lies in these purposes. The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is § 15 para. 3 German Telemedia Act (TMG) and Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The data sent by us and linked with cookies, user identification (e.g. user ID) or advertising IDs are automatically deleted after 14 months. Data whose retention period has been reached is automatically deleted once a month. For more information on terms of use and data protection, please visit https://www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html or https://policies.google.com/?hl=en.

You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser, however please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. You can also prevent Google from collecting the data generated by the cookie and relating to your use of the website (including your IP address) and from processing this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser add-on. Opt-out cookies prevent the future collection of your data when you visit this website. To prevent Universal Analytics from collecting data across different devices, you must opt-out on all systems used. If you click here, the opt-out cookie will be set: Disable Google Analytics

GA Audiences

On this website, GA Audiences, a web analysis service of the provider Google, collects and stores data from which user profiles are created using pseudonyms. This technology will enable users who have already visited our websites and online services to see targeted advertising from us on other external sites in the Google Partner Network. For this purpose, a cookie is placed on your computer with which the user behaviour when visiting the website can be analysed and subsequently used for targeted product recommendations and interest-based advertising. By setting the cookie, no personal data is stored and processed. If you do not wish to receive interest-based advertising, you can disable Google's use of cookies for these purposes by following the instructions at https://www.google.de/settings/ads/onweb#display_optout.

Google DoubleClick

We use DoubleClick, a service provided by Google Inc. DoubleClick uses cookies to serve user-based ads. The cookies recognize which advertisement has already been placed in your browser and whether you have called up a website via a placed advertisement. Cookies do not collect any personal information and cannot be associated with such information.

If you don't want to receive user-based advertising, you can disable ads using Google's ad settings.

For more information about how Google uses cookies, please read Google's privacy policy.

Google Maps

To make it easier for you to find us, we have integrated map material of the Google Maps service of Google LLC into our website via an API. In order to display the content in your browser, Google must obtain your IP address, otherwise Google could not provide you with this integrated content.

The legal basis of this data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 b) GDPR, since the IP address is required to be able to provide you with the contents. In this processing, our cooperation with Google is based on a contract of joint responsibility pursuant to Art. 26 GDPR, which can be accessed here. Otherwise, the user enters into a user relationship directly with Google by using Google Maps.

For more information about Google's data processing, please see Google's privacy policy at https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en&gl=de
