Data Protection Declaration Beam Products

Data Protection Declaration

Snapview GmbH is particularly concerned about data protection. Our efforts in particular to meet the requirements of the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the German Federal Data Protection Act in its new version are primarily aimed at respecting your privacy and personal sphere.

For modern companies such as Snapview GmbH, the use of electronic data processing systems is indispensable nowadays. It goes without saying that we will do our utmost to comply with the legal regulations.

The Snapview GmbH website can be used without any indication of personal data. However, if the data subject wishes to make use of special services of our company via our website, it may be necessary to process personal data. If the processing of personal data is necessary and there is no legal basis for such processing, we generally obtain the consent of the data subject.

Under no circumstances will we sell or rent your personal information to third parties for their marketing or other purposes. If you do not agree with the provisions of the data protection declaration, please do not send any personal data to us.

1. General Information, Definition of Terms

This data protection declaration is based on terms of the GDPR and should be easy to read and understand for every person. For this reason, we would like to explain various terms in advance:

a) personal data

Personal data means 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.

d) restriction of processing

Restriction of processing means the marking of stored personal data with the aim of limiting their processing in the future.

e) Profiling

Profiling means any form of automated processing of personal data consisting of the use of personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyze or predict aspects concerning that natural person’s performance at work, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behavior, location or movements.

f) pseudonymization

Pseudonymization means the processing of personal data in such a manner that the personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without the use of additional information, provided that such additional information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organisational measures to ensure that the personal data are not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.

g) controller

However, public authorities which may receive personal data in the framework of a particular inquiry in accordance with Union or Member State law shall not be regarded as recipients; the processing of those data by those public authorities shall be in compliance with the applicable data protection rules according to the purposes of the processing.

j) third party

Third party means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or body other than the data subject, controller, processor and persons who, under the direct authority of the controller or processor, are authorized to process personal data.

(4) When you contact us via e-mail or a contact form, the information you provide (your e-mail address, your name and telephone number, if applicable) will be automatically stored by us to answer your questions and to our CRM system, which is provided by Salesforce Inc., based in the USA. Although Salesforce Inc. also operates servers within the EU, it cannot be ruled out that your data may be transferred and processed in a third country (e.g. the USA) or that your data stored within the EU may be accessed from third countries. Salesforce Inc. processes personal data under the EU-US Privacy Shield. We have also concluded a so-called data processing agreement with Salesforce Inc. in accordance with Art. 28 GDPR with EU standard contract clauses to ensure an appropriate level of data protection. A copy of this can be downloaded from https://www.salesforce.com/assets/pdf/misc/data-processing-addendum.pdf.

We delete the data arising in this connection after the storage is no longer necessary or restrict the processing if there are legal storage obligations.

(5) If we wish to use contracted service providers for individual functions of our offer or use your data for advertising purposes, we will inform you below in detail about the respective processes. We will also specify the criteria for the storage period.

(6) As the data controller, we have implemented numerous technical and organisational measures to ensure the most complete possible protection of the personal data processed via this website. Nevertheless, Internet-based data transmissions can in principle have security gaps, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, each person concerned is free to transmit personal data to us by alternative means, such as telephone.

(7) As a responsible company, we refrain from automatic decision-making or profiling.

3. Your rights

(1) You have the following rights against us with regard to the personal data concerning you:

– Right of access:

Every data subject affected by the processing of personal data has the right granted by the GDPR to obtain from the data controller, at any time and free of charge, information about the personal data stored about him and a copy of this information. Furthermore, the European Directive and Regulation Maker has granted the data subject information on the following information:

a) the purposes of the processing
b) the categories of personal data processed
c) the recipients or categories of recipients to whom the personal data have been or will be disclosed, in particular recipients in third countries or international organizations

h) the existence of automated decision-making, including profiling, in accordance with Article 22(1) and (4) of the GDPR and, at least in these cases, meaningful information on the logic involved and the scope and intended impact of such processing on the data subject

In addition, the data subject has the right to know whether personal data have been transferred to a third country or to an international organization. If this is the case, the data subject shall also have the right to obtain information on the appropriate safeguards in connection with the transfer.

If a data subject wishes to exercise this right of access, he or she may at any time contact a member of staff of the controller.

– Right to revoke consent under data protection law:

Any data subject involved in the processing of personal data has the right to withdraw consent to the processing of personal data at any time.
If a data subject wishes to exercise this right to withdraw consent, he or she may do so at any time and by any means of communication to an employee of the controller.

– Right to rectification:

The data subject shall have the right to obtain from the controller without delay the rectification of inaccurate personal data concerning him or her. Taking into account the purposes of the processing, the data subject shall have the right to request the completion of incomplete personal data, including by means of a supplementary statement.

If a data subject wishes to exercise this right of access, he or she may at any time contact an employee of the controller.

– Right to deletion / right to be forgotten:

The data subject shall have the right to obtain from the controller the erasure without delay of personal data relating to him or her and the controller shall be obliged to erase without delay personal data for any of the following reasons:

a) the personal data are no longer necessary for the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed.
b) the data subject withdraws the consent on which the processing was based pursuant to Article 6(1)(a) or Article 9(2)(a) and there is no other legal basis for the processing.
c) the data subject objects to the processing pursuant to Article 21(1) and there are no overriding legitimate reasons for the processing, or the data subject objects to the processing pursuant to Article 21(2).
d) the personal data have been unlawfully processed.
e) the erasure of the personal data is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation under Union law or the law of the Member States to which the controller is subject.
f) the personal data have been collected in relation to information society services offered in accordance with Article 8(1).

If a data subject wishes to exercise this right of cancellation/right to be forgotten, he or she may at any time contact an employee of the controller for this purpose.

If we have made the personal data public and we are obliged to delete them pursuant to Art. 17 (1) GDPR, we shall take appropriate measures, also of a technical nature, taking into account the available technology and the implementation costs, to inform those responsible for data processing who process the personal data that a data subject has requested them to delete all links to this personal data or copies or replications of this personal data. Our employees will take the necessary measures.

– Right to limit the processing:

The data subject shall have the right to request the controller to restrict the processing if one of the following conditions is met:

a) the accuracy of the personal data is contested by the data subject for a period of time which enables the controller to verify the accuracy of the personal data,
b) the processing is unlawful and the data subject refuses to erase the personal data and instead requests that the use of the personal data be restricted;
c) the controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of the processing, but the data subject needs them for the exercise, exercise or defense of legal rights; or
d) the data subject has objected to the processing referred to in Article 21(1) before it has been established whether the legitimate reasons of the controller outweigh those of the data subject.

If a data subject wishes to exercise this right to limit the processing, he or she may at any time do so by contacting an employee of the controller.

– Right to object to the processing:

Any person concerned by the processing of personal data has the right under the GDPR to object at any time, for reasons related to his/her particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning him/her under Article 6(1)(e) or (f) of the GDPR. This also applies to profiling based on these provisions.

In the event of objection, we will no longer process the personal data unless we can prove compelling grounds for processing worthy of protection which outweigh the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

If we process personal data for the purpose of direct advertising, the data subject has the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data for the purpose of such advertising. This also applies to profiling as far as it is connected with such direct advertising. If the data subject objects to our processing for direct marketing purposes, we will no longer process the personal data for these purposes.

In addition, the data subject shall have the right to object to the processing of personal data relating to him or her by us for scientific or historical research purposes or for statistical purposes pursuant to Art. 89 (1) GDPR for reasons arising from his or her particular situation, unless such processing is necessary for the performance of a task in the public interest.
In order to exercise the right to object, the data subject may contact any employee directly. The data subject is also free to exercise his or her right of objection in connection with the use of information society services, notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC, by means of automated procedures using technical specifications.

– Right to data portability:

The data subject shall have the right to obtain the personal data concerning him which he has provided to a data controller in a structured, common and machine-readable format and shall have the right to communicate such data to another controller without being hampered by the controller to whom the personal data have been provided, provided that

(a) the processing is based on a consent pursuant to Article 6(1)(a) or Article 9(2)(a) or on a contract pursuant to Article 6(1)(b); and
(b) the processing is carried out by automated means.

When exercising his/her right to data portability pursuant to Art. 20 para. 1 GDPR, the data subject shall have the right to obtain that the personal data be transferred directly from one controller to another controller, provided that this is technically feasible and that the rights and freedoms of other persons are not impaired.

If a data subject wishes to exercise this right to data transfer, he or she may at any time contact an employee of the controller.

– Automated individual decision-making, including profiling

Any person subject to the processing of personal data shall have the right under the GDPR not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which has legal effects on him or her or significantly affects him or her in a similar manner, provided that the decision

a) is not necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between the data subject and the controller; or
b) is authorized by legislation of the Union or of the Member States to which the controller is subject and contains appropriate measures to safeguard the rights and freedoms and the legitimate interests of the data subject; or
(c) with the express consent of the data subject.

Where the decision is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between the data subject and the controller or with the express consent of the data subject, we shall take reasonable steps to safeguard the rights and freedoms and the legitimate interests of the data subject, including at least the right to have the data subject intervene, to present his or her views and to challenge the decision.

If the data subject wishes to exercise rights relating to automated decisions, he or she may at any time do so by contacting an employee of the controller.

6. Data protection for job applications

The data controller collects and processes the personal data of applicants for the purpose of processing the application. Processing may also be carried out electronically. This is particularly the case if an applicant submits the relevant application documents electronically, for example by e-mail or via a contact form on the website, to the controller. If the controller concludes an employment contract with an applicant, the data transmitted shall be stored for the purpose of processing the employment contract in compliance with the statutory provisions. If the controller does not conclude an employment contract with the candidate, the application documents shall be automatically deleted, unless deletion conflicts with any other legitimate interests of the controller. Other legitimate interests in this sense include, for example, the duty to provide evidence in proceedings under the General Equal Treatment Act (Allgemeines Gleichbehandlungsgesetz – AGG).
The processing of the applicant data is carried out to fulfil our (pre)contractual obligations within the scope of the application procedure within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b. GDPR Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. GDPR insofar as data processing becomes necessary for us, e.g. within the framework of legal proceedings (in Germany, § 26 BDSG additionally applies).

7. Objection or revocation against the processing of your data

(1) If you have given your consent to the processing of your data, you can revoke it at any time and by any means of communication. Such a revocation influences the permissibility of processing your personal data after you have given it to us.

(2) Insofar as we base the processing of your personal data on a weighing of interests, you may object to the processing. This is the case if the processing is in particular not necessary for the fulfilment of a contract with you, which is described by us in the following description of the functions. In the event of such an objection, we ask you to explain the reasons why we should not process your personal data as we have done. In the event of your justified objection, we will examine the situation and either discontinue or adapt the data processing or point out our compelling reasons worthy of protection on the basis of which we will continue the processing.

(3) You may of course object to the processing of your personal data for advertising and data analysis purposes at any time. You can contact us about your advertising objection at the address given in section 2 (2).

8. Legal or contractual provisions for the provision of personal data/ necessity for the conclusion of a contract/ consequences of nonprovision/deletion

(1) We would like to inform you that the provision of personal data is partly required by law. However, it is also possible that a data subject may be required to provide us with personal information in order for a contract to be performed. Failure to do so would result in the contract not being able to be concluded. Our employees will be happy to answer any questions you may have on a case-by-case basis.

(2) The data processed by us will be deleted or their processing restricted in accordance with Art. 17 and 18 GDPR. Unless expressly stated in this data protection declaration, the data stored by us will be deleted as soon as they are no longer required for their intended purpose and there are no legal obligations to retain them. If the data are not deleted because they are required for other and legally permissible purposes, their processing will be restricted. This means that the data will be blocked and not processed for other purposes. This applies, for example, to data that must be stored for commercial or tax reasons.

According to legal requirements, the data is stored in particular for 10 years in accordance with §§ 147 para. 1 AO, 257 para. 1 nos. 1 and 4, para. 4 HGB (German Commercial Code) (books, records, management reports, accounting records, commercial books, documents relevant for taxation, etc.) and 6 years in accordance with § 257 para. 1 nos. 2 and 3, para. 4 HGB (German Commercial Code) (commercial letters).

10. Online Advertising

1. Use of Google AdSense

(1) This website uses the online advertising service Google AdSense, through which advertising tailored to your interests can be presented to you. We use it to track your interest in displaying advertisements that may be of interest to you in order to make our website more interesting to you. For this purpose, statistical information about you is collected and processed by our advertising partners. These advertisements can be identified by the reference “Google advertisements” in the respective advertisement.

(2) By visiting our website, Google receives the information that you have visited our website. Google uses a web beacon to set a cookie on your computer. The data mentioned under number 4 of this declaration will be transmitted. We have no influence on the data collected, nor are we aware of the full extent of the data collection and the storage period. Your data will be transferred to the USA and evaluated there. If you are logged in with your Google account, your data can be directly assigned to it. If you do not wish to be assigned to your Google profile, you must log out. It is possible that this data may be passed on to third parties and authorities by Google’s contractual partners. The legal basis for the processing of your data is Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f GDPR. This website does not place any third-party advertisements via Google AdSense.

(3) You can prevent the installation of Google AdSense cookies in various ways: a) by setting your browser software accordingly, in particular by suppressing third-party cookies, you will not receive any third-party ads; b) by deactivating interest-related ads on Google via the link https://www.googlede/ads/preferences, where this setting is deleted if you delete your cookies; c) by disabling the interest-based ads of the providers that are part of the About Ads self-regulatory campaign via the https://www.aboutads.info/choices link, where this setting is deleted if you delete your cookies; d) by permanently disabling it in your Firefox, Internet Explorer, or Google Chrome browsers via the https://www.google.com/settings/ads/plugin link. Please note that in this case you may not be able to make full use of all the functions of this offer.

(4) Further information on the purpose and scope of data collection and processing as well as further information on your rights in this regard and setting options to protect your privacy can be obtained from us: Google Inc. 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountainview, California 94043, USA; Privacy Policy for Advertising: https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/technologies/ads. Google has submitted to the EU-US Privacy Shield, https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework.

2. Use of Google Ads

(1) We use the services of Google Ads to draw attention to our attractive offers with the help of advertising media (so-called Google Ads) on external websites. In relation to the data of the advertising campaigns, we can determine how successful the individual advertising measures are. In doing so, we pursue the interest of displaying advertising to you that is of interest to you, of making our website more interesting for you and of achieving a fair calculation of advertising costs.

(2) These advertising media are delivered by Google via so-called “Ad Servers”. We use ad server cookies for this purpose, which can be used to measure certain parameters for measuring success, such as the display of ads or clicks by users. If you access our website via a Google ad, Google Ads stores a cookie on your PC. These cookies usually lose their validity after 30 days and are not intended to identify you personally. For this cookie, the unique cookie ID, number of ad impressions per placement (frequency), last impression (relevant for post-view conversions) and opt-out information (marking that the user no longer wishes to be addressed) are usually stored as analysis values.

(3) These cookies allow Google to recognize your Internet browser. If a user visits certain pages of a Google Ads customer’s website and the cookie stored on their computer has not expired, Google and the customer may recognize that the user clicked on the ad and was directed to that page. Each Google Ads customer is assigned a different cookie. Cookies cannot therefore be tracked through the websites of Google Ads customers. We ourselves do not collect or process any personal data in the aforementioned advertising measures. We only receive statistical evaluations from Google. These evaluations enable us to identify which of the advertising measures used are particularly effective. We do not receive any further data from the use of the advertising media; in particular, we cannot identify users on the basis of this information.

(4) Due to the marketing tools used, your browser automatically establishes a direct connection with Google’s server. We have no influence on the extent and further use of the data collected by Google through the use of this tool and therefore inform you according to our state of knowledge: By integrating AdWords Conversion, Google receives the information that you have called up the relevant part of our website or clicked on an advertisement from us. If you are registered with a Google service, Google can assign the visit to your account. Even if you are not registered with Google or have not logged in, it is possible for the provider to find out and store your IP address.

(5) You can prevent participation in this tracking process in various ways: a) by setting your browser software accordingly, in particular by suppressing third party cookies to prevent you from receiving advertisements from third parties; b) by deactivating cookies for conversion tracking by setting your browser to block cookies from the domain “www.googleadservices.com”, https://www.googlede/settings/ads, this setting being deleted when you delete your cookies; c) by disabling the interest-based ads of the providers that are part of the “About Ads” self-regulatory campaign via the link https://www.aboutads.info/choices, this setting being deleted when you delete your cookies; d) by permanently disabling it in your Firefox, Internet Explorer or Google Chrome browsers via the link https://www.google.com/settings/ads/plugin. Please note that in this case you may not be able to make full use of all the functions of this offer.

(6) The legal basis for the processing of your data is Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f GDPR. Further information on data protection at Google can be found at https://www.google.com/intl/de/policies/privacy and https://services.google.com/sitestats/de.html. Alternatively, you can visit the website of the Network Advertising Initiative (NAI) at https://www.networkadvertising.org. Google has submitted to the EU-US Privacy Shield, https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework.

3. Remarketing

(1) In addition to Google Ads, we use the Google Remarketing application. This is a process with which we would like to address you again. Through this application, you can be shown our advertisements after visiting our website during your further Internet use. This is done by means of cookies stored in your browser, which are used by Google to record and evaluate your usage behavior when you visit various websites. This allows Google to determine your previous visit to our website. According to Google’s own statements, the data collected during remarketing is not merged with your personal data, which may be stored by Google. In particular, according to Google, a pseudonymization is used for remarketing.

(2) The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest lies in the analysis, optimization and economic operation of our Internet presence.

(3) In order to enable this advertising service, Google stores a cookie with a sequence of numbers on your device during your visit to our website via your Internet browser. This cookie records both your visit and the use of our website in anonymous form. However, personal data is not passed on. If you subsequently visit the website of a third party who also uses Google’s advertising network, it is possible that advertisements will appear which relate to our website or to our offers there.

(4) To permanently deactivate this function, Google offers a browser plug-in for the most common Internet browsers via https://www.google.com/settings/ads/plugin.

(5) The use of cookies by certain providers, e.g. via http://www.youronlinechoices.com/uk/your-ad-choices or http://www.networkadvertising.org/choices/, can also be deactivated by opt-out.

(6) Through cross-device marketing, Google may be able to track your usage patterns across multiple devices, so you may receive interest-based, personalized advertisements even when you switch devices. However, this requires that you have agreed to link your browser history to your existing Google Account.

(7) Google offers more information about Google Remarketing at http://www.google.com/privacy/ads/.

11. Plugins and tools

1. Google Web Fonts

This website uses so-called web fonts provided by Google for the uniform display of fonts.

The use of Google Web Fonts is in the interest of a uniform and appealing presentation of our online services. This constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.

If your browser does not support web fonts, a standard font will be used by your computer. Further information on Google Web Fonts can be found at https://developers.google.com/fonts/faq and in Google’s privacy policy: https://developers.google.com/fonts/faq.

2. Use of Google reCAPTCHA

We use the reCAPTCHA service of Google Inc. (Google) to protect your orders via Internet forms. The query serves to differentiate whether the input is made by a human being or whether it is misused by automated, mechanical processing. The query includes the transmission of the IP address and any other data required by Google for the service reCAPTCHA to Google. For this purpose, your input will be transmitted to Google and used there. By using reCAPTCHA, you agree that the recognition you provide will be incorporated into the digitization of old works. However, if IP anonymization is activated on this website, your IP address will be shortened by Google in advance within member states of the European Union or in other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to and truncated by Google on servers in the United States. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of this service. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of reCAPTCHA is not merged with other data from Google. These data are subject to the differing data protection regulations of Google. For more information about Google’s privacy policy, please visit: https://www.google.com/intl/de/policies/privacy/.

3. Use of ajax.googleapis.com and jQuery

On this page we use Ajax and jQuery technologies to optimize loading speeds. In this respect, program libraries are accessed from Google servers. The CDN (Content delivery network) from Google is used. If you have previously used jQuery on another Google CDN page, your browser will use the cached copy. If this is not the case, it will require downloading, whereby data from your browser will be sent to Google Inc. (“Google”). Your data will be transferred to the USA. You can find out more on the pages of the providers.

The legal basis for the processing of your data is Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f GDPR.

4. Google Tag Manager

Google Tag Manager is a solution with which we can manage so-called website tags via a single interface (and thus, for example, integrate Google marketing services into our online offering). The Tag Manager itself (which implements the tags) does not process any personal user data. With regard to the processing of users’ personal data, reference is made to the following information on Google services. Terms of use: https://www.google.com/intl/de/tagmanager/use-policy.html.

5. Cloudflare

To protect the server and IT infrastructure, we work with Cloudflare (https://www.cloudflare.com/) to deploy a web application firewall on our websites. This serves as a filter between our servers and potentially malicious traffic from the Internet. It protects against fraudulent activities such as SQL injections and cross-site scripting. Information about the personal data required for this service can be found at https://blog.cloudflare.com/what-cloudflare-logs/. The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. You can view the Cloudflare data protection declaration at https://www.cloudflare.com/privacypolicy/. A data processing contract with Cloudflare and suitable guarantees for data transfers to third countries ensure compliance with data protection.
