1. An overview of data protection

In our capacity as a data controller, Delignit AG, Königswinkel 2-6, 32825 Blomberg, 05235/966-100, info(at)delignit.com, would like to explain to you which data we collect from you and how we process it. Our Data Protection Representative may be contacted at Datenschutz(at)werning.com and will be happy to answer any questions you may have regarding data protection.

How do we collect your data?

Some data are collected when you provide it to us. This could, for example, be data you enter on a contact form.

Other data are collected automatically by our IT systems when you visit the website. These data are primarily technical data such as the browser and operating system you are using or when you accessed the page. These data are collected automatically as soon as you enter our website.

What do we use your data for?

Part of the data is collected to ensure the proper functioning of the website. Other data can be used to analyze how visitors use the site.

Purpose, legal basis, categories of recipients, duration of storage of data processing

The purpose of data processing on this website is to provide information about products and services offered by our company and to enable users to get in touch with the right contact partner at the company.

Otherwise, we process personal data in accordance with the following legal principles.

  • Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a DS-GVO (General Data Protection Regulation): for processing of personal data with the consent of the person concerned.
  • Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b DS-GVO: for the necessary processing of personal data for the fulfilment of a contract with the person concerned and for the execution of corresponding contractual obligations.
  • Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. c DS-GVO: for the necessary processing of personal data for the fulfilment of a legal duty to which we are subject according to applicable EU law or applicable law in a country to which the DSGVO applies.
  • Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f DS-GVO: for the necessary processing of personal data to protect the legitimate interests of us or of third parties where these are not outweighed by the basic rights and freedoms of the person concerned. Legitimate interests are in particular our commercial interests, ability to provide our website, data security, enforcement of our own legal claims and adherence to other legal stipulations.

Within the scope of our provision of services, we attach particular importance to confidentiality and to our data protection obligations. Data is only passed onto authorities in circumstances where overriding legal provisions apply.

When you visit the website, a connection is established with your browser. Temporary system files are stored, and the following information is automatically recorded: IP address of your device, date and time of access, name and URL of files retrieved, website from which access takes place or via which you have been directed to our site (referrer URL), browser used and, if applicable, the operating system used on your device and the name of your provider.

SSL or TLS encryption

This site uses SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and for the protection of the transmission of confidential content, such as the inquiries you send to us as the site operator. You can recognize an encrypted connection in your browser's address line when it changes from "http://" to "https://" and the lock icon is displayed in your browser's address bar.

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

Your right to information, correction and deletion, right to object and data transferability

You may exercise your right to receive information on the data held about you and your right to correction and deletion of data at any time. Simply contact us using the details given above. If you request deletion of data which we are statutorily required to retain, access to such data will be restricted (blocked). The same applies in respect of objection. You may exercise your right to data transferability to the extent that both we and the recipient have the necessary technical means in place.

Right to complain

You have the right to lodge a complaint with a data protection supervisory authority at any time.

In our case, for example, complaints may be addressed to the Data Protection and Freedom of Information Commissioner for the State of North Rhine-Westphalia at https://www.ldi.nrw.de/

Data security/encryption

This website uses “Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure” (https). The connection between your browser and our server is encrypted.

Opposition to promotional emails

We hereby expressly prohibit the use of contact data published in the context of website legal notice requirements with regard to sending promotional and informational materials not expressly requested. The website operator reserves the right to take specific legal action if unsolicited advertising material, such as email spam, is received.

3. Data collection on our website

Cookies

Some of our web pages use cookies. Cookies do not harm your computer and do not contain any viruses. Cookies help make our website more user-friendly, efficient, and secure. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser.

Most of the cookies we use are so-called "session cookies." They are automatically deleted after your visit. Other cookies remain in your device's memory until you delete them. These cookies make it possible to recognize your browser when you next visit the site.

You can configure your browser to inform you about the use of cookies so that you can decide on a case-by-case basis whether to accept or reject a cookie. Alternatively, your browser can be configured to automatically accept cookies under certain conditions or to always reject them, or to automatically delete cookies when closing your browser. Disabling cookies may limit the functionality of this website.

Cookies which are necessary to allow electronic communications or to provide certain functions you wish to use (such as the shopping cart) are stored pursuant to Art. 6 paragraph 1, letter f of DSGVO. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the storage of cookies to ensure an optimized service provided free of technical errors. If other cookies (such as those used to analyze your surfing behavior) are also stored, they will be treated separately in this privacy policy.

Server log files

The website provider automatically collects and stores information that your browser automatically transmits to us in "server log files". These are:

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

These data will not be combined with data from other sources.

The basis for data processing is Art. 6 (1) (b) DSGVO, which allows the processing of data to fulfill a contract or for measures preliminary to a contract.

Contact form

Should you send us questions via the contact form, we will collect the data entered on the form, including the contact details you provide, to answer your question and any follow-up questions. We do not share this information without your permission.

We will, therefore, process any data you enter onto the contact form only with your consent per Art. 6 (1)(a) DSGVO. You may revoke your consent at any time. An informal email making this request is sufficient. The data processed before we receive your request may still be legally processed.

We will retain the data you provide on the contact form until you request its deletion, revoke your consent for its storage, or the purpose for its storage no longer pertains (e.g. after fulfilling your request). Any mandatory statutory provisions, especially those regarding mandatory data retention periods, remain unaffected by this provision.

4. Analytics and advertising

Use of CloudFlare

CloudFlare is used as CDN ("Content Delivery Network") to secure this website and optimize loading times. For this reason, all requests are forcibly routed through the CloudFare servers and consolidated into statistics that cannot be deactivated. The collected raw data are usually deleted there within 4 hours, at the latest after 3 days. Here you will find information about the data collected and security & data protection at CloudFlare.

Matomo (formerly Piwik)

This website uses the open source web analytics service Matomo. Matomo uses so-called "cookies". These are text files that are stored on your computer and that allow an analysis of the use of the website by you. For this purpose, the information generated by the cookie about the use of this website is stored on our server. The IP address is anonymized before it is stored.

Matomo cookies remain on your device until you delete them.

The storage of Matomo cookies is based on Art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analyzing user behavior in order to optimize both its website and its advertising.

The information generated by the cookies about your use of this website will not be disclosed to third parties. You can prevent these cookies being stored by selecting the appropriate settings in your browser. However, we wish to point out that doing so may mean you will not be able to enjoy the full functionality of this website.

If you do not agree with the storage and use of your data, you can disable this feature here. In this case, an opt-out cookie will be stored in your browser to prevent Matomo from storing your usage data. If you delete your cookies, this will mean that the opt-out cookie will also be deleted. You will then need to reactivate it when you return to our site if you wish your activity not to be tracked.

5. Plugins and tools
