3. General infor­mation and mandatory infor­mation

Data protection

The operators of this website and its pages take the protection of your personal data very seriously. Hence, we handle your personal data as confi­dential infor­mation and in compliance with the statutory data protection regula­tions and this Data Protection Decla­ration.

Whenever you use this website, a variety of personal infor­mation will be collected. Personal data comprises data that can be used to perso­nally identify you. This Data Protection Decla­ration explains which data we collect as well as the purposes we use this data for. It also explains how, and for which purpose the infor­mation is collected.

We herewith advise you that the trans­mission of data via the Internet (i.e., through e-mail commu­ni­ca­tions) may be prone to security gaps. It is not possible to completely protect data against third-party access.

Infor­mation about the respon­sible party (referred to as the “controller” in the GDPR)

The data processing controller on this website is:

Thomas Findeis
MAWERA Holzfeuerungs­anlagen GmbH
Neuland­straße 30
6971 Hard am Bodensee
Austria

Phone: +43 5574 74301-0
E-mail: info@mawera.com

The controller is the natural person or legal entity that single-handedly or jointly with others makes decisions as to the purposes of and resources for the processing of personal data (e.g., names, e-mail addresses, etc.).

Storage duration

Unless a more specific storage period has been specified in this privacy policy, your personal data will remain with us until the purpose for which it was collected no longer applies. If you assert a justified request for deletion or revoke your consent to data processing, your data will be deleted, unless we have other legally permis­sible reasons for storing your personal data (e.g., tax or commercial law retention periods); in the latter case, the deletion will take place after these reasons cease to apply.

General infor­mation on the legal basis for the data processing on this website

If you have consented to data processing, we process your personal data on the basis of Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR or Art. 9 (2)(a) GDPR, if special categories of data are processed according to Art. 9 (1) DSGVO. In the case of explicit consent to the transfer of personal data to third countries, the data processing is also based on Art. 49 (1)(a) GDPR. If you have consented to the storage of cookies or to the access to infor­mation in your end device (e.g., via device finger­printing), the data processing is additio­nally based on § 25 (1) TTDSG. The consent can be revoked at any time. If your data is required for the fulfillment of a contract or for the imple­men­tation of pre-contractual measures, we process your data on the basis of Art. 6(1)(b) GDPR. Furthermore, if your data is required for the fulfillment of a legal obligation, we process it on the basis of Art. 6(1)(c) GDPR. Furthermore, the data processing may be carried out on the basis of our legitimate interest according to Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR. Infor­mation on the relevant legal basis in each individual case is provided in the following paragraphs of this privacy policy.

Infor­mation on data transfer to the USA and other non-EU countries

Among other things, we use tools of companies domiciled in the United States or other from a data protection perspective non-secure non-EU countries. If these tools are active, your personal data may poten­tially be trans­ferred to these non-EU countries and may be processed there. We must point out that in these countries, a data protection level that is compa­rable to that in the EU cannot be guaranteed. For instance, U.S. enter­prises are under a mandate to release personal data to the security agencies and you as the data subject do not have any litigation options to defend yourself in court. Hence, it cannot be ruled out that U.S. agencies (e.g., the Secret Service) may process, analyze, and perma­nently archive your personal data for surveil­lance purposes. We have no control over these processing activities.

Revocation of your consent to the processing of data

A wide range of data processing transac­tions are possible only subject to your express consent. You can also revoke at any time any consent you have already given us. This shall be without prejudice to the lawfulness of any data collection that occurred prior to your revocation.

Right to object to the collection of data in special cases; right to object to direct adver­tising (Art. 21 GDPR)

IN THE EVENT THAT DATA ARE PROCESSED ON THE BASIS OF ART. 6(1)(E) OR (F) GDPR, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO AT ANY TIME OBJECT TO THE PROCESSING OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA BASED ON GROUNDS ARISING FROM YOUR UNIQUE SITUATION. THIS ALSO APPLIES TO ANY PROFILING BASED ON THESE PROVI­SIONS. TO DETERMINE THE LEGAL BASIS, ON WHICH ANY PROCESSING OF DATA IS BASED, PLEASE CONSULT THIS DATA PROTECTION DECLA­RATION. IF YOU LOG AN OBJECTION, WE WILL NO LONGER PROCESS YOUR AFFECTED PERSONAL DATA, UNLESS WE ARE IN A POSITION TO PRESENT COMPELLING PROTECTION WORTHY GROUNDS FOR THE PROCESSING OF YOUR DATA, THAT OUTWEIGH YOUR INTERESTS, RIGHTS AND FREEDOMS OR IF THE PURPOSE OF THE PROCESSING IS THE CLAIMING, EXERCISING OR DEFENCE OF LEGAL ENTIT­LE­MENTS (OBJECTION PURSUANT TO ART. 21(1) GDPR).

IF YOUR PERSONAL DATA IS BEING PROCESSED IN ORDER TO ENGAGE IN DIRECT ADVER­TISING, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO OBJECT TO THE PROCESSING OF YOUR AFFECTED PERSONAL DATA FOR THE PURPOSES OF SUCH ADVER­TISING AT ANY TIME. THIS ALSO APPLIES TO PROFILING TO THE EXTENT THAT IT IS AFFILIATED WITH SUCH DIRECT ADVER­TISING. IF YOU OBJECT, YOUR PERSONAL DATA WILL SUBSE­QUENTLY NO LONGER BE USED FOR DIRECT ADVER­TISING PURPOSES (OBJECTION PURSUANT TO ART. 21(2) GDPR).

Right to log a complaint with the competent super­visory agency

In the event of viola­tions of the GDPR, data subjects are entitled to log a complaint with a super­visory agency, in parti­cular in the member state where they usually maintain their domicile, place of work or at the place where the alleged violation occurred. The right to log a complaint is in effect regardless of any other adminis­trative or court procee­dings available as legal recourses.

Right to data porta­bility

You have the right to demand that we hand over any data we automa­ti­cally process on the basis of your consent or in order to fulfil a contract be handed over to you or a third party in a commonly used, machine readable format. If you should demand the direct transfer of the data to another controller, this will be done only if it is techni­cally feasible.

Infor­mation about, recti­fi­cation and eradi­cation of data

Within the scope of the appli­cable statutory provi­sions, you have the right to at any time demand infor­mation about your archived personal data, their source and recipients as well as the purpose of the processing of your data. You may also have a right to have your data rectified or eradi­cated. If you have questions about this subject matter or any other questions about personal data, please do not hesitate to contact us at any time.

Right to demand processing restric­tions

You have the right to demand the imposition of restric­tions as far as the processing of your personal data is concerned. To do so, you may contact us at any time. The right to demand restriction of processing applies in the following cases:

  • In the event that you should dispute the correctness of your data archived by us, we will usually need some time to verify this claim. During the time that this inves­ti­gation is ongoing, you have the right to demand that we restrict the processing of your personal data.
  • If the processing of your personal data was/is conducted in an unlawful manner, you have the option to demand the restriction of the processing of your data in lieu of demanding the eradi­cation of this data.
  • If we do not need your personal data any longer and you need it to exercise, defend or claim legal entit­le­ments, you have the right to demand the restriction of the processing of your personal data instead of its eradi­cation.
  • If you have raised an objection pursuant to Art. 21(1) GDPR, your rights and our rights will have to be weighed against each other. As long as it has not been deter­mined whose interests prevail, you have the right to demand a restriction of the processing of your personal data.

If you have restricted the processing of your personal data, these data – with the exception of their archiving – may be processed only subject to your consent or to claim, exercise or defend legal entit­le­ments or to protect the rights of other natural persons or legal entities or for important public interest reasons cited by the European Union or a member state of the EU.

SSL and/or TLS encryption

For security reasons and to protect the trans­mission of confi­dential content, such as purchase orders or inquiries you submit to us as the website operator, this website uses either an SSL or a TLS encryption program. You can recognize an encrypted connection by checking whether the address line of the browser switches from “http://” to “https://” and also by the appearance of the lock icon in the browser line.

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

Rejection of unsoli­cited e-mails

We herewith object to the use of contact infor­mation published in conjunction with the mandatory infor­mation to be provided in our Site Notice to send us promo­tional and infor­mation material that we have not expressly requested. The operators of this website and its pages reserve the express right to take legal action in the event of the unsoli­cited sending of promo­tional infor­mation, for instance via SPAM messages.

6. Analysis tools and adver­tising

Google Analytics

This website uses functions of the web analysis service Google Analytics. The provider of this service is Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

Google Analytics enables the website operator to analyze the behavior patterns of website visitors. To that end, the website operator receives a variety of user data, such as pages accessed, time spent on the page, the utilized operating system and the user’s origin. This data is summa­rized in a user-ID and assigned to the respective end device of the website visitor.

Furthermore, Google Analytics allows us to record your mouse and scroll movements and clicks, among other things. Google Analytics uses various modeling approaches to augment the collected data sets and uses machine learning techno­logies in data analysis.

Google Analytics uses techno­logies that make the recognition of the user for the purpose of analyzing the user behavior patterns (e.g., cookies or device finger­printing). The website use infor­mation recorded by Google is, as a rule trans­ferred to a Google server in the United States, where it is stored.

The use of these services occurs on the basis of your consent pursuant to Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR and § 25(1) TTDSG. You may revoke your consent at any time.

Data trans­mission to the US is based on the Standard Contractual Clauses (SCC) of the European Commission. Details can be found here: https://privacy.google.com/businesses/controllerterms/mccs/.

This data may be used for custo­mized adver­tising with the assis­tance of Google Signal. If you have a Google account, your site visitor infor­mation will be linked to your Google account by Google Signal and used to send you custo­mized promo­tional messages. The data is also used to compile anony­mized statistics of our users’ online patterns.

Contract data processing

We have executed a contract data processing agreement with Google and are imple­menting the stringent provi­sions of the German data protection agencies to the fullest when using Google Analytics.

LinkedIn Insight Tag

This website uses the Insight tag from LinkedIn. This service is provided by LinkedIn Ireland Unlimited Company, Wilton Plaza, Wilton Place, Dublin 2, Ireland.

Data processing by LinkedIn Insight tag

We use the LinkedIn Insight tag to obtain infor­mation about visitors to our website. Once a website visitor is regis­tered with LinkedIn, we can analyze the key occup­a­tional data (e.g., career level, company size, country, location, industry, job title) of our website visitors to help us better target our site to the relevant audience. We can also use LinkedIn Insight tags to measure whether visitors to our websites make a purchase or perform other actions (conversion measu­rement). Conversion measu­rement can also be carried out across devices (e.g. from PC to tablet). LinkedIn Insight Tag also features a retar­geting function that allows us to display targeted adver­tising to visitors to our website outside of the website. According to LinkedIn, no identi­fi­cation of the adver­tising addressee takes place.

LinkedIn itself also collects log files (URL, referrer URL, IP address, device and browser charac­te­ristics and time of access). The IP addresses are shortened or (if they are used to reach LinkedIn members across devices) hashed (pseud­ony­mized). The direct identi­fiers of LinkedIn members are deleted by LinkedIn after seven days. The remaining pseud­ony­mized data will then be deleted within 180 days.

The data collected by LinkedIn cannot be assigned by us as a website operator to specific indivi­duals. LinkedIn will store the personal data collected from website visitors on its servers in the USA and use it for its own promo­tional activities. For details, please see LinkedIn’s privacy policy at https://www.linkedin.com/legal/privacy-policy#choices-oblig.

7. Plug-ins and Tools

YouTube with expanded data protection integration

Our website embeds videos of the website YouTube. The website operator is Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

We use YouTube in the expanded data protection mode. According to YouTube, this mode ensures that YouTube does not store any infor­mation about visitors to this website before they watch the video. Nevertheless, this does not necessarily mean that the sharing of data with YouTube partners can be ruled out as a result of the expanded data protection mode. For instance, regardless of whether you are watching a video, YouTube will always establish a connection with the Google Double­Click network.

As soon as you start to play a YouTube video on this website, a connection to YouTube’s servers will be estab­lished. As a result, the YouTube server will be notified, which of our pages you have visited. If you are logged into your YouTube account while you visit our site, you enable YouTube to directly allocate your browsing patterns to your personal profile. You have the option to prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account.

Furthermore, after you have started to play a video, YouTube will be able to place various cookies on your device or compa­rable techno­logies for recognition (e.g. device finger­printing). In this way YouTube will be able to obtain infor­mation about this website’s visitors. Among other things, this infor­mation will be used to generate video statistics with the aim of improving the user friend­liness of the site and to prevent attempts to commit fraud.

Under certain circum­s­tances, additional data processing transac­tions may be triggered after you have started to play a YouTube video, which are beyond our control.

The use of YouTube is based on our interest in presenting our online content in an appealing manner. Pursuant to Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR, this is a legitimate interest. If appro­priate consent has been obtained, the processing is carried out exclu­sively on the basis of Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR and § 25 (1) TTDSG, insofar the consent includes the storage of cookies or the access to infor­mation in the user’s end device (e.g., device finger­printing) within the meaning of the TTDSG. This consent can be revoked at any time.

Wordfence is designed to protect our website from unwanted access or malicious cyber­at­tacks. To accom­plish this, our website estab­lishes a permanent connection with Wordfence’s servers, which check and block their databases against access to our website.

The use of Wordfence is based on Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the most effective protection of his website against cyber­at­tacks. If appro­priate consent has been obtained, the processing is carried out exclu­sively on the basis of Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR and § 25 (1) TTDSG, insofar the consent includes the storage of cookies or the access to infor­mation in the user’s end device (e.g., device finger­printing) within the meaning of the TTDSG. This consent can be revoked at any time.

Data trans­mission to the USA is based on the standard contractua
