PRIVACY POLICY

We take the protection of your personal data very seriously. For this reason, we naturally always handle your personal data in accordance with statutory data protection regulations. MARTOR KG have appointed an external qualified and trustworthy data protection controller towards this end. The UIMC Dr. Voßbein GmbH & Co KG has been commissioned to exercise the relevant external duties.

In the text below, our aim is to inform you about the processing of your personal data.

Collection and Processing of Personal Data
As a general principle, you can benefit from our online services without disclosing your identity. If we ask for personal data (such as a name, address or email address) on our website – for example within contact forms or during the subscription or registration process – this is done on a voluntary basis. We use such information for our own business purposes (such as shipping of requested materials/information).

If you have any questions, we offer you the opportunity to contact us using a form provided on the website. There, the data marked as obligatory fields are necessary for allocating and responding to the enquiry. Any further details can be provided voluntarily. Data processing, undertaken in order to facilitate your making contact with us, is carried out in  accordance with Article 6, paragraph 1, sentence 1, point a of the GDPR on the basis of your voluntarily given consent.

The personal data collected by us in connection with use of the contact form are automatically deleted once your request has been processed and following the expiration of the fiscal and commercial law-related retention periods.

You may at any time withdraw consent given in a specific context – for example, in order that we might send you interesting information from our company – without giving reasons and with future effect. To do this, you can use the above contact form or the means mentioned in this email.

Cookies
This site uses cookies. Cookies are text files that are stored on your computer and that help analyse the ways in which the website is used. They will automatically recognise you on your next visit. You can prevent cookies from being installed by selecting the appropriate setting in the cookie banner or in your browser. You can also revoke your consent at any time via the cookie banner or the cookie settings. This may result in you not being able to make full use of all the services on offer.

Google Analytics

This website is used by Google Analytics, a web analytics service of Google LLC ("Google"), provided that you have given your consent to this in accordance with Article 6, paragraph 1, sentence 1, point a of the GDPR in that so-called "cookie" text files are installed in your computer system to enable you to perform an analysis of the usage of the web site. The information generated by such cookies in respect of your use of said web site (including your short IP address) is transferred to a Google server in the US and stored there for the duration of the session. Google will then use said information to evaluate your usage of the web site in order to compile reports covering the web site activities for use by the web site operators so as to come forth with further services in conjunction with web site and internet usage. Google will, furthermore and if necessary, transfer such information to third parties, such as US authorities, if and when set forth by law or as far as a third party is processing such information on behalf of Google. If you have agreed to the use of analysis and tracking cookies and would like to object to this at a later date, you can do this at any time in the cookie banner or the cookie settings via our website. Alternatively, you can install a so-called add-on in your browser. To do this, you can follow the following link, which will take you to the Google page: tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.

DoubleClick
We also use DoubleClick with your consent in accordance with Article 6, paragraph 1, sentence 1, point a of the GDPR, provided that you have consented to the use of marketing cookies when visiting this website. DoubleClick is a Google Inc. product used to target internet advertising to users. The ad server loads a cookie into the user's browser and collects data on user behaviour. This data includes the IP address, websites visited, keyword searches and other indicators of surfing behaviour. If you wish to object to the use of DoubleClick at a later date, you can revoke your consent at any time in the cookie settings.

Google Maps

In order to facilitate your visit, we offer you the use of Google Maps to display maps and obtain directions, provided that you have consented to data processing and transmission (Article 6, paragraph 1, sentence 1, point a of the GDPR). Google Maps is operated by Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. These web pages have been accordingl indicated for you. If you call up a website on which GoogleMaps is embedded on our website, a connection is established to Google's servers and your IP and browser data are transmitted to Google. Google may transfer this information to third parties, e.g. US authorities, where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google's behalf. For more information on data processing, please refer to Google's privacy policy at policies.google.com/privacy [external page].

Google reCAPTCHA

In certain cases, we use the reCAPTCHA service from the US company Google LLC, provided you have given your consent in accordance with Article 6, paragraph 1, sentence 1, point a of the GDPR. Using reCAPTCHA is intended to ensure data security when transmitting forms. It primarily distinguishes whether input is being made by a natural person or is being misused by means of computerised and automated processing. When you visit one of our websites in which reCAPTCHA is integrated, your personal data, such as IP address, screen and window resolution, language setting in the browser, time zone, installed browser plug-ins and, if applicable, other data required by Google for reCAPTCHA is collected and transmitted to Google. Google may transfer this information to third parties, such as US authorities, where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google's behalf.

Social media

YouTube

There are videos on our website for marketing purposes. The videos are operated by YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. When you watch a YouTube video, a connection is established to the YouTube servers. In the process, the YouTube server is informed of your IP address and which of our pages you have visited, provided you have given us your consent to the collection and transmission of your personal data in accordance with Article 6, paragraph 1, sentence 1, point a of the GDPR. This happens regardless of whether you have a YouTube user account or not. If you are logged into your YouTube account, you also enable YouTube to assign your surfing behaviour directly to your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account. YouTube may transfer the processed information to third parties, e.g. US authorities, if this is required by law or if third parties process this data on behalf of YouTube. Further information on the handling of user data can be found in YouTube's privacy policy at: policies.google.com/privacy [external page].

LinkedIn
Our website links to the LinkedIn website. The operator of the pages is LinkedIn Ireland Unlimited Company, Wilton Plaza, Wilton Place, Dublin 2, Ireland. Rather than using plug-ins, we only link to LinkedIn. Your personal data is therefore not automatically transmitted to LinkedIn when you visit our website. By linking, LinkedIn only processes your personal data when you actively click on the LinkedIn button. LinkedIn may transfer the processed information to third parties, e.g. US authorities, if this is required by law or if third parties process this data on behalf of LinkedIn. We have no influence on the type and scope of your personal data processed by LinkedIn.

For more information on how we handle your data, please see LinkedIn's privacy policy at: www.linkedin.com/legal/privacy-policy [external page].

XING
This website links to the XING website. The website is operated by XING AG, Dammtorstraße 29-32, 20354 Hamburg, Germany. Rather than using plug-ins, we only link to XING. This means that your personal data is not automatically transmitted to XING when you visit our website. With just a link, XING only processes your personal data when you actively click on the XING button. However, if you are logged into your XING account when you visit our website, XING will process your personal data. We have no influence on the type and scope of your personal data that is processed by XING.

For more information on how your data is handled, please refer to XING's privacy policy at: privacy.xing.com/en/privacy-policy [external page].

Disclosure of data
As a matter of principle, disclosure to third parties, for commercial or non-commercial purposes, will not take place without your express agreement. We pass on your personal data to third parties only when this is legally permissible [such as on the basis of Article 6 of the GDPR] and/or necessary. To some degree, we utilise service providers for legally stipulated commissioned data processing; for example, the website is hosted by Netigo GmbH Düsseldorf and maintained by Netigo GmbH Düsseldorf. In this context, we retain full responsibility for the processing of the data.

Depending on the place where the enquirer is located, our services may be provided locally via our relevant local sales partner. To facilitate this, the data required for the handling of the contact request are passed to the responsible sales partner. Depending on the location of the enquirer, data may also be shared in other countries (including the United States and other countries outside the EU/EEA).

Liability for our own content
The content of these web pages has been prepared with the utmost care. However, we cannot accept any responsibility with regard to whether the content is accurate, complete or up to date. As service providers, we are responsible for our own web page content in accordance with general legislation.

Liability for links (content of external providers)
Our own web page content must be distinguished from cross-references (“links”) to web page content maintained by other providers. We have no influence over such content; the relevant provider or operator is always responsible for the content of the web pages we link to.

Rights of data subjects
We hereby inform you that, as per Articles 15 et seq. of the GDPR, you have, under the conditions specified therein, the right in your dealings with us to information about the applicable personal data and to rectification or erasure or restriction of processing or a right to object to such processing as well as the right to data portability. As per Article 77 of the GDPR, you also have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority if you believe that the processing of the personal data concerning you is in breach of this regulation. If the processing is based on Article 6, paragraph 1, point a of the GDPR or Article 9, paragraph 2, point a of the GDPR (consent), then you also have the right to withdraw your consent at any time without affecting the legitimacy of the processing that has taken place on the basis of that consent up to the time of withdrawal.

Changes to our data protection conditions
We reserve the right to adapt this data protection policy from time to time so that it fulfils the latest statutory requirements or in order to reflect changes to our services within the data protection policy, such as when introducing new services. Your subsequent website access will then be subject to the new data protection policy.

Questions
In case you have any questions with regard to the use and processing of your personal data, you may approach our data protection controller directly, in response to which he and his team can assist you in respect of requests for information, applications or complaints.
