1. Data protection at a glance

General information

The following information provides a simple overview of what happens to your personal data when you visit our website. Personal data are all data which allow you to be personally identified. Detailed information on data protection can be found in our data protection policy below this text.

Data collection on our website

Who is responsible for data collection on this website?

The data processing on this website is carried out by the website operator. You can find their contact details in the Legal Info page of this website.

How do we collect your data?

On the one hand, your data are collected by you communicating it to us. For example, this could be data that you enter in a contact form.

Other data are automatically collected by our IT systems when you visit the website. This is primarily technical data (e.g. internet browser, operating system or time of the page visit). These data are recorded automatically as soon as you enter our website.

What do we use your data for?

Part of the data are collected to ensure that the website is rendered correctly. Other data can be used to analyse your user behaviour.

What rights do you have regarding your data?

You have the right to receive information about the origin, recipient and purpose of your stored personal data at any time free of charge. You also have the right to request that these data be corrected, blocked or deleted. You can contact us at any time at the address given on our Legal Info page if you have any further questions about data protection. You also have the right to lodge a complaint with the responsible supervisory authority.

You also have the right to request that the processing of your personal data be restricted in certain circumstances. You can find details on this in the data protection policy under “Right to restriction of processing”.

Analysis tools and third party tools

When you visit our website, your browsing behaviour may be statistically evaluated. This is performed primarily using cookies and with so-called analysis programs. Your surfing behaviour is usually analysed anonymously; the surfing behaviour cannot be traced back to you. You can object to this analysis or prevent it by not using certain tools. You can find detailed information on this in the following data protection policy.

You can object to this analysis. We will inform you about the possibilities of objection in this data protection policy.

2. General information and mandatory information

Data Protection

The operators of these pages take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the statutory data protection regulations and this data protection policy.

When you use this website, various personal data are collected. Personal data are data which allow you to be personally identified. This data protection policy explains what data we collect and what we use it for. It also explains how and for what purpose this is done.

We would like to point out that data transmission over the internet (e.g. when communicating by email) can lead to security issues. It is not possible to completely protect data from third-party access.

Information about the data controller

The data controller for data processing on this website is:

Ingenieurgesellschaft Meinhardt Fulst GmbH
Kaiserstraße 18
38690 Goslar

Telephone: +49 53 24 / 77 99 - 0
Email: info@i-mf.de

The data controller is the natural or legal person who, alone or together with others, decides on the purposes and means of processing personal data (e.g. names, email addresses or similar).

Revocation of your consent to data processing

Many data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. You can withdraw your consent at any time. All you need to do is send an informal email to us. The legality of the data processing carried out before the revocation remains unaffected by said revocation.

Right to object to data collection in special cases and direct advertising (Art. 21 GDPR)

If data processing is based on Art. 6 (1) (e) or (f) GDPR, you have the right to object to the processing of your personal data at any time for reasons that arise from your particular situation; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions. The respective legal basis on which processing is based can be found in this data protection policy. If you file an objection, we will no longer process the personal data concerned, unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing that outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend against legal claims (objection acc. to Art. 21 (1) GDPR).

If your personal data are processed for direct marketing purposes, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of your personal data for the purpose of such advertising; this also applies to profiling insofar as it is connected to such direct advertising. If you object, your personal data will then no longer be used for direct marketing purposes (objection acc. to Art. 21 (2) GDPR).

Right to lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority

In the event of violations of the GDPR, the data subject has the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the member state in which they are normally resident, their place of work or the place of the alleged violation. The right to lodge a complaint is without prejudice to other administrative or judicial remedies.

Right to data portability

You have the right to have data that we process automatically based on your consent or in fulfilment of a contract handed over to yourself or to a third party in a common, machine-readable format. If you request the direct transfer of the data to another data controller, this will only take place if it is technically feasible.

SSL or TLS encryption

For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or enquiries that you send to us as the site operator, this site uses an SSL and/or TLS encryption. You can recognise an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from “http://” to “https://” and by the lock symbol in your address line.

If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data that you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.

Information, blocking, deletion and correction

Within the framework of the applicable legal provisions, you have the right to free information about your stored personal data, its origin and recipient and the purpose of data processing and, if necessary, the right to correct, block or delete these data. You can contact us at any time at the address given on our Legal Info page if you have any further questions about personal data.

Right to restriction of processing

You have the right to request that the processing of your personal data be restricted. You can contact us at any time at the address given on our Legal Info page. The right to restrict processing exists in the following cases:

  • If you contest the accuracy of your personal data stored by us, we usually need time to check this. For the duration of this check, you have the right to request that the processing of your personal data be restricted.
  • If the processing of your personal data occurred/occurs unlawfully, you may request restriction of data processing instead of deletion.
  • If we no longer need your personal data, but you need it to exercise, defend against or assert legal claims, you have the right to request that the processing of your personal data be restricted instead of being deleted.
  • If you have filed an objection in accordance with Art. 21 (1) GDPR, it will become necessary to weigh up both your and our interests. As long as it is not yet clear whose interests take priority, you have the right to request that processing of your personal data be restricted.

If you have restricted the processing of your personal data, this data - excluding its storage - may only be processed with your consent or to assert, exercise or defend against legal claims or to protect the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of important public interest within the European Union or a Member State.

Objection to advertising emails

We hereby object to the use of the contact data, which is subject to mandatory publishing on our Legal Info page, to send unsolicited advertising and information material. The operators of the pages expressly reserve the right to take legal action in the event of unsolicited promotional information, such as spam emails.

4. Data collection on our website

Cookies

Server log files

The provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:

  • Browser type and version
  • Operating system used
  • Referrer URL
  • Host name of the accessing computer
  • Time of the server request
  • IP address

These data are not merged with other data sources.

These data are recorded on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the presentation and optimisation of his website, free of technical errors - the server log files must be recorded for this.

Request by email, phone or fax

If you contact us by email, phone or fax, your request, including all personal data resulting from it (name, request), will be stored and processed by us for the purpose of processing your request. We will not pass on these data without your consent.

These data are processed on the basis of Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR, if your request is related to the fulfilment of a contract or is necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures. In all other cases, the processing is based on your consent (Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR) and/or on our legitimate interests (Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR), since we have a legitimate interest in the effective processing of enquiries addressed to us.

The data you send us via contact requests will remain with us until you request deletion, revoke your consent to storage or the purpose for data storage no longer applies (e.g. after your request has been processed). Mandatory statutory provisions - in particular statutory retention periods - remain unaffected.

Processing of data (customer and contract data)

We collect, process and use personal data only insofar as they are necessary for the establishment, content or change of the legal relationship (inventory data). This is done on the basis of Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR, which allows the processing of data to fulfil a contract or pre-contractual measures. We only collect, process and use personal data about the use of our website (usage data), insofar as this is necessary to enable or bill the user for the use of the service.

The customer data collected will be deleted after the order has been completed or the business relationship has ended. Statutory retention periods remain unaffected.

5. Analysis tools and advertising

Google Analytics

This website uses functions of the web analytics service Google Analytics. The provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”. These are text files that are stored on your computer and that enable an analysis of your use of the website. 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.

The storage of Google Analytics cookies and the use of this analysis tool are based on Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analysing user behaviour in order to optimise both its website and its advertising.

IP anonymization

We have activated the IP anonymization function on this website. This means that your IP address will be shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area before it is transmitted to the USA. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. 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 related to website and internet use. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.

Browser plugin

You can prevent the storage of cookies by setting your browser software accordingly; however, we would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all functions of this website to their full extent. You can also prevent Google from collecting the data generated by the cookie and relating them to your use of the website (including your IP address) and from processing this data by Google by downloading the browser plug-in available under the following link and install: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.

Objection against data collection

You can prevent Google Analytics from collecting your data by clicking on the following link. An opt-out cookie is set that prevents the collection of your data on future visits to this website: Deactivate Google Analytics.

You can find more information on handling user data at Google Analytics in Google's data protection policy: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=de.

Demographic characteristics in Google Analytics

This website uses the “demographic features” function of Google Analytics. This allows reports to be created that contain information about the age, gender and interests of the website visitors. This data comes from interest-based advertising from Google and visitor data from third-party providers. This data cannot be assigned to a specific person. You can deactivate this function at any time via the ad settings in your Google account or generally prohibit the collection of your data by Google Analytics as shown in the point “Objection to data collection”.

Storage period

Data stored at Google at user and event level that are linked to cookies, user IDs (e.g. User ID) or advertising IDs (e.g. DoubleClick cookies, Android advertising ID) will be anonymized after 14 months or deleted. You can find details on this under the following link: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/7667196?hl=de

6. OpenStreetMap

We use the map service from OpenStreetMap (OSM). The provider is the Open-Street-Map Foundation (OSMF), 132 Maney Hill Road, Sutton Coldfield, West Midlands, B72 1JU, United Kingdom.

If you visit a website on which OpenStreetMap is integrated, your IP address and further information about your behaviour on this website will be forwarded to the OSMF. For this, OpenStreetMap may save cookies in your browser. These are text files that are stored on your computer and that enable an analysis of your use of the website. You can prevent the storage of cookies by setting your browser software accordingly; however, we would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all functions of this website to their full extent.

Your location can also be recorded if you enable this in your device settings, e.g. on your cell phone. The provider of this page has no influence on this data transmission. Details can be found in the data protection declaration of OpenStreetMap under the following link: https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Privacy_Policy.

OpenStreetMap is used to ensure the attractive presentation of our online offers and to easily locate the places we have indicated on the website. This represents a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR.
