III. General information about data processing

1. Scope of processing of personal data

In principle, we collect and use our users' personal data only to the extent necessary to provide both a functional website and our content and services. The collection and use of our users' personal data takes place regularly only with the user's consent. An exception applies to cases in which prior consent cannot be obtained due to practical considerations, and in which the processing of the data is permitted by law.

2. Legal basis for the processing of personal data

Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for processing personal data, Art. 6 (1) (a) of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is the legal basis for the processing of personal data.

Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR is the legal basis for the processing of personal data necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party. This also applies to processing operations required to carry out pre-contractual actions.

Art. 6 (1) (c) GDPR is the legal basis for the processing of personal data that is required to fulfil a legal obligation to which our company is subject.

In the event that vital interests of the data subject or another natural person require the processing of personal data, Art. 6 (1) (d) GDPR is the legal basis.

If processing is necessary to safeguard the legitimate interests of our company or a third party, and if the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not prevail over the above-mentioned interest, Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR is the legal basis for the processing.

3. Data deletion and storage duration

The personal data of the data subject will be deleted or blocked as soon as there is no longer a need for the storage. In addition, such storage may take place if provided for by the European or national legislative authorities in EU regulations, laws or other regulations to which the controller is subject. Blocking or deletion of the data also takes place when a storage period prescribed by the standards mentioned expires, unless there is a need for further storage of the data for the conclusion of a contract agreement or fulfilment of the contract.

IV. Provision of the website and creation of log files

1. Description and scope of data processing

Each time our website is accessed, our system automatically collects data and information from the computer system of the calling computer.

2.    T
he user's operating system

3.     The user's Internet Service Provider

4.     An IP address of your requesting Internet-enabled device

5.    
Date and time of the visit

Websites from which the user's system reached our website

7.     W
ebsites that are accessed by the user's system through our website

8.    
The files downloaded from our website (e.g. PDF or Word documents)

The data is also stored in the log files of our system. The user's IP addresses or other data that allow the correlation of the data to a user are not affected by this. Storage of this data together with other personal data of the user does not take place.

2. Legal basis for data processing

The legal basis for processing the IP address is Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest follows from the data collection purposes listed above. Körber Automation GmbH's use of the general access data and information thus does not directly identity your person.

3. Purpose of data processing

The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary to allow delivery of the website to the user's computer. To do this, the user's IP address must be kept for the duration of the session.

Storage in log files occurs to ensure the functionality of the website. In addition, the data is used to optimise the website and to ensure the security of our information technology systems. Evaluation of the data for marketing purposes does not take place in this context.

For these purposes, our legitimate interest in the processing of data is based on Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR.

4. Duration of storage

The data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer necessary for the purpose for which it was collected. In the case of collecting the data for providing the website, this is the case when the respective session is completed.

In the case of storing the data in log files, this is the case after no more than seven days. Storage beyond this period is possible. In this case, the users' IP addresses are deleted or masked so that it is no longer possible to identify the calling client.

5. Objection and deletion options

The collection of data for the provision of the website and the storage of the data in log files is essential for the operation of the website. In consequence, the user does not have the option to object.

1. Description and scope of data processing and legal basis for the processing of personal data

We use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA, hereinafter referred to as Google, in order to ensure appropriate design and continuous optimisation of our websites on the basis of Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR (legitimate interest). This results in the creation of pseudonymised usage profiles and requires the use of a specific form of cookies. The information generated by the cookies about your use of this website is generally transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. Google is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement, which provides a guarantee of compliance with EU data protection standards.

We point out that on our websites Google Analytics is only used with activated IP anonymisation “_anonymizeIp()”. This means that the users' IP addresses are shortened by Google within the territory of the European Union or in other contracting states of the agreement in the European economic area, in order to eliminate direct reference to persons.

Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA,

 where it is truncated.

2. Purpose of data processing

Google will use this information on our behalf to evaluate the use of our online offering by users, to compile reports on the activities within this online offering and to provide us with further services related to the use of this online offering and to internet usage. In this case, pseudonymous user profiles can be created from the processed data.

3. Objection and deletion options

The IP address transmitted by your browser within the scope of Google Analytics is not added to any other Google data. If you wish to prevent Google from collecting and processing the data (including your IP address) related to your use of the website (including your IP address), as well as the processing of this data by Google, you can do this by downloading and installing the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on. The browser add-on is available for Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari and Opera at:
https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl

As an alternative to the browser plug-in or when using browsers on mobile devices, it is possible to use this link to set an opt-out cookie that will prevent Google Analytics within this website in the future. Your browser must allow cookies to be stored. If you delete your cookies regularly, you will need to click on the link each time you visit this website.

You can find more information on the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy at:

X. Google Data Studio

Based on Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR (legitimate interest), we use an additional Google Analytics data management tool – Google Data Studio (beta version) – to visually create custom reports and interactive dynamic dashboards for our users. Here we use the data from Google Analytics and no other interfaces to data sources (such as Google AdWords, Attribution 360, BigQuery, Cloud SQL, MySQL, Google Sheets, YouTube Analytics, etc.). The web tool does not require a local application and can be accessed via the Web. Access is via a browser and the data sources are directly connected via Google Data Studio. For more information about using Google Data Studio, see:
https://support.google.com/datastudio/answer/6283323?hl=de 

The user has the option to revoke his consent to the processing of the personal data at any time. He may object to the storage of his personal data at any time by contacting us by email. In such a case, the conversation cannot continue.

WiredMinds uses cookies – text files that are saved on your device and allow an analysis of the use of our website – in this context. The collected data, which may also contain personal data, is transmitted to a sever belonging to WiredMinds in Germany or collected directly by WiredMinds. WiredMinds may use information left by visits to the websites to create anonymised usage profiles.

The data obtained without the separately granted consent of the data subject will not be used to personally identify the visitor to this website and will not be merged with personal data about the bearer of the pseudonym. Whenever IP addresses are collected, they will be anonymised immediately after collection by deleting the last number block.

XII. Integration of services and third-party contents

General notes

As an agile company, it is extremely important to us to be present and reachable wherever our customers are. For this reason, social plug-ins and links from social networks (Facebook, LinkedIn, XING, Google+, YouTube) are integrated on our websites on the basis of Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR (legitimate interest). The underlying commercial purpose is to be regarded as legitimate interest within the meaning of the GDPR. The responsibility for data-protection-compliant operations is to be ensured by the respective providers of the social network.

In addition, on the basis of our legitimate interests (i.e. interest in the analysis, optimisation and economic operation of our online offering in terms of Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR) or on the basis of your consent within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR), we use content or services provided by third party providers for our our online offerings in order to integrate their content and services. Before connecting to the provider, you must explicitly agree to the process and the data transfer described below:

Links to the websites of social media services are indicated by the respective company logo. If you follow a social media link, you can find the corporate identity of Körber Automation GmbH at the respective social media service. Please note that activating a link results in a connection to the servers of the social media service, and as a result certain data can be transmitted to the provider of the social media service. This data is, for example:

• Your name and email address when authenticating as part of the registration or login process;

• Address of the website where the activated link is located;

• Date and time of the website's activation or activation of the link;

• Information about the browser used and the operating system used;

• IP address of the requesting Internet-enabled end device.

If you are logged in as a member of the respective social media service, the social media service can assign this information to your personal user account at the social media service. You can exclude this possibility of assignment to your personal user account if you log out of your user account beforehand. The social media servers are located in the US and other countries outside the European Union. Please note that companies in these countries are subject to data protection law that generally does not protect personal data to the same extent as is the case in the Member States of the European Union.

Körber Automation GmbH has no influence on the scope, nature and purpose of the data processing by the provider of the social media service. Next we will inform you about the social media channels we use in detail:

1. Facebook

We – Körber Automation GmbH – use the social plug-ins of the social network Facebook on the basis of our legitimate interests for the purpose of analysis, optimisation and economic operation of our online offerings within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR. The provider is Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland, hereafter referred to as "Facebook".

The plug-ins may contain interaction elements or content such as: videos, graphics or text contributions and are recognisable by one of the Facebook logos (white “f” on blue tile, the term “Like”, or a “thumbs up” sign) or are marked with the addition “Facebook Social Plug-In”. The list and appearance of the Facebook social plugins can be viewed here:
https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/

The Facebook social platform is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement, which provides a guarantee of compliance with European data protection law.

When a user requests a feature of this online offering that includes such a plugin, his end device establishes a direct connection to the Facebook servers. The contents of the plugins are transmitted directly from Facebook to the user's end device and integrated into it by the online offering. In this case, user profiles can be created from the processed data. Please be aware that we have no control over the amount of data Facebook collects using this plugin.

Furthermore, because of integrating the plugins, Facebook receives the information that a user has accessed the corresponding page of the online offering. If the user is logged into Facebook, Facebook can assign the visit to his Facebook account. If users interact with the plugins (such as by clicking the Like button or posting a comment), the corresponding information will be sent directly to Facebook by your end device and stored there.

If a user is not a member of Facebook, there is the possibility that Facebook will recognise and save his IP address. Facebook indicates that only an anonymous IP address is stored in Germany. If a user is already a Facebook member and does not want Facebook to collect data about him through this online offering and associate it with his member data stored on Facebook, he must log out of Facebook and delete his cookies before using our online offering.

Additional settings for using data for promotional purposes can be viewed in the Facebook profile settings at:
https://www.facebook.com/settings?tab=ads

Detailed information on the purpose and scope of the data collection, the further processing and use of data by Facebook, as well as your rights and setting options to protect your privacy, can be found in the Facebook Privacy Policy at:

We – Körber Automation GmbH – use the so-called plugins of the social network Google+, which is offered by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA, on the basis of our legitimate interests for the purpose of analysis, optimisation and economic operation of our online offerings within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR.. The plugins are recognisable on e.g. buttons with the sign "+1" on white or coloured background. When you activate the plug-in with the first click, your browser connects directly to Google's servers. The contents of the plugins are transmitted directly from Google to your browser and integrated into it by the site. The integration gives Google the information that your browser has accessed the corresponding page of our website, even if you do not have a profile on Google+ or are currently not logged in to Google+. This information, including your IP address, will be sent from your browser directly to a Google server in the US and stored there. If you are logged in to Google Plus, Google can instantly associate your visit to our website with your Google+ profile. If you interact with the plugins, for example by pressing the "+1" button, the corresponding information is also transmitted directly to a Google server and stored there. In addition, this information will be published on Google+ and displayed there in your contacts. The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Google, as well as your related rights and configuration options to protect your privacy, can be found here:

These are used for the statistical collection of videos and are intended to improve user-friendliness and prevent abusive practices. Each time you visit the Körber Automation GmbH website, regardless of any playback of the embedded videos, you will be connected to the Google Network “DoubleClick”, which may trigger further data processing without the influence of our company.

6. Google Tag Manager

The Körber Automation GmbH website uses the Google Tag Manager on the basis of our legitimate interests (i.e. interests in the analysis, optimisation and economic operation of our online offerings within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR). This service allows website tags to be managed through a single interface. Google Tag Manager only implements tags. No cookies are set and no personal information is collected. Google Tag Manager triggers other tags that may collect data. Google Tag Manager does not access this data.

If deactivated at the domain or cookie level, it will remain in effect for all tracking tags as far as they are implemented with the Google Tag Manager. You can find detailed information about the Google Tag Manager at the following link: www.google.de/tagmanager/use-policy.html

This cookie is usually not deleted by closing the browser, but it will expire after a certain amount of time unless you manually delete it.

If you disagree with the processing of your data, you may disable the “Google Maps” service and prevent the transmission of data to Google in this way. To do this, you must disable the Java Script feature in your browser.

If your personal data is processed, you are the data subject in the sense of GDPR and you have the following rights with regards to the controller:

(6)        the existence of a right of appeal to a supervisory authority;

(7)        all available information on the source of the data if the personal data is not collected from the data subject;

(8)        the existence of automated decision-making, including profiling according to Art. 22 (1) and (4) GDPR and – at least in these cases – significant information about the logic involved, as well as the implications and intended effects of such processing on the data subject.

You have the right to request information about whether your personal information has been be transferred to a third country or an international organisation. In this connection, you can request the appropriate guarantees pursuant to Art. 46 GDPR in connection with the transfer.

2. Right to correction

You have a right to require that the controller correct and/or complete personal data if processed personal data concerning you is incorrect or incomplete. The controller must make the correction without delay.

3. Right to restriction of processing

You may request the restriction of the processing of your personal data under the following conditions:

(1)        you contest the accuracy of your personal data and provide a sufficient time period for the controller to verify the accuracy of your personal data;

(2)        the processing is unlawful and you decline to delete the personal data and instead request the restriction of the use of the personal data;

(3)        the controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of the processing, but you need it for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims, or

(4)        you have filed an objection against the processing pursuant to Art. 21 (1) GDPR and it is not yet certain whether the legitimate reasons of the controller outweigh your reasons.

If the processing of your personal data has been restricted, apart from its storage, this data may only be used with your consent or for the purpose of asserting, exercising or defending legal claims or protecting the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of important public interest of the Union or a Member State.

If the restriction of processing is limited in accordance with the above-mentioned requirements, you will be informed by the controller before the restriction is lifted.

4. Right to deletion

a) Deletion obligations

You may require the controller to delete your personal information without delay, and the controller is required to delete that information immediately if one of the following is true:

(1)        Your personal data is no longer necessary for the purposes for which it was collected or otherwise processed.

(2)        You revoke your consent to the processing pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (a) or Art. 9 (2) (a) GDPR and there is no other legal basis for processing.

(3)        You object to the processing pursuant to Article 21 (1) GDPR and there are no legitimate reasons for the processing, or you object to the processing pursuant to Article 21 (2) GDPR.

b) Information to third parties

If the controller has made your personal data public and if he is is obligated to delete it pursuant to Article 17 (1) GDPR, he must take appropriate measures, including technical measures, with due account of the technology available and the costs of implementation, to inform controllers who process the personal data for the purpose of processing that you as the data subject have requested deletion of all links to such personal data or of copies or replications of such personal data.

c) Exceptions

The right to deletion does not exist if the processing is necessary

(1)        to exercise the right to freedom of expression and information;

(2)        to fulfil a legal obligation required by the law of the Union or of the Member States to which the controller is subject, or necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of public authority conferred on the controller;

(3)        for reasons of public interest in the field of public health pursuant to Art. 9 (2) (h) and (i) and Art. 9 (3) GDPR;

(4)        for archival purposes in the public interest, scientific or historical research purposes or for statistical purposes pursuant to Article 89 (1) GDPR, to the extent that the right referred to in subparagraph (a) is likely to render impossible or seriously affect the achievement of the objectives of that processing, or

(5)        to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

5. Right to information

If you have the right to correction, deletion or restriction of processing against the controller, he is obliged to notify all recipients to whom your personal data has been disclosed of this correction or deletion of the data or restriction of processing, unless this proves to be impossible or involves a disproportionate effort.

You have a right against the controller to be informed about these recipients.

6. Right to data portability

You have the right to receive your personal data that you provide to the controller in a structured, common and machine-readable format. In addition, you have the right to transfer this data to another controller without hindrance by the controller who provided the personal data, provided that

(1)        the processing is based on consent pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR or Art. 9 (2) (a) GDPR or on a contract pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR and

(2)        the processing is done using automated procedures.

In exercising this right, you also have the right to have your personal data transmitted directly from one controller to another controller, as far as technically feasible. Freedoms and rights of other persons may not be hereby affected.

The right to data portability does not apply to the processing of personal data necessary for the performance of a task in the public interest or in the exercise of public authority conferred on the controller.

7. Right of objection

You have the right at any time, for reasons that arise from your particular situation, to object to the processing of your personal data that is taking place pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (e) or (f) GDPR; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions.

The controller will no longer process your personal data unless he can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for processing that outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing is for the purpose of enforcing, exercising or defending legal claims.

If your personal data is 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 associated with such direct mail.

If you object to processing for direct marketing purposes, your personal data will no longer be processed for these purposes.

Regardless of Directive 2002/58/EC, you have the option, in the context of the use of information society services, of exercising your right of objection through automated procedures that use technical specifications.

8. Right to revoke the data protection consent declaration

You have the right to revoke your data protection declaration at any time. The revocation of consent does not affect the legality of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until the revocation occurred.

9. Automated decision on an individual basis including profiling

You have the right not to be subjected to a decision based solely on automated processing – including profiling – that will have legal effect or affect you in a similar manner. This does not apply if the decision

(1)        is required for the conclusion or performance of a contract between you and the controller,

(2)        is permissible on the basis of Union or Member State legislation to which the controller is subject, assuming this legislation contains adequate measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests, or

(3)        with your express consent.

However, these decisions must not be based on special categories of personal data pursuant to Art. 9 (1) GDPR, unless Art. 9 (2) (a) or (g) applies and reasonable measures have been taken to protect your rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests.

With regard to the cases referred to in (1) and (3), the controller shall take appropriate measures to protect your rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests, including at minimum the right to obtain intervention on the part of the controller, to the presentation of your own position, and to hear an appeal of the decision.

10. Right of complaint to a supervisory authority

Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you shall have the right to complain to a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of your residence or place of work, or the place of the alleged infringement, if you believe that the processing of your personal data violates the GDPR.

The supervisory authority to which the complaint has been submitted shall inform the complainant of the status and results of the complaint, including the possibility of a judicial remedy pursuant to Art. 78 GDPR.

XVI. Data security

Körber Automation GmbH continuously takes appropriate technical and organisational security measures to protect your personal data against manipulation, partial or complete loss and unauthorised access by third parties as comprehensively as possible. Our security measures are continuously improved in line with technological developments.

In addition to securing the operating environment, we use an encryption process in the entire website. All personally transmitted data, including your payment information, will be transmitted using the common and secure standard SSL (Secure Socket Layer) protocol to prevent misuse of the information by third parties. SSL is a secure and proven standard that is also used, for example, in online banking. You can recognise a secure SSL connection by the fact that, among other things, the lock symbol in the status bar of your browser is closed and the address bar begins with "https".

Nevertheless, we point out that Internet-based data transmissions can in principle have security gaps (for example in the case of communication by email), so that an absolute protection of the data against access by third parties can not be guaranteed.

XVII. Reservation

Körber Automation GmbH reserves the right to change or supplement these privacy guidelines at any time in compliance with the data protection regulations. All updates will be published on our website. New data protection regulations become effective with their publication. We encourage you to visit this website periodically to see the latest version.
