Data Privacy Policy

Our web­site may be used with­out enter­ing per­son­al infor­ma­tion. Dif­fer­ent rules may apply to cer­tain ser­vices on our site, how­ev­er, and are explained sep­a­rate­ly below. We col­lect per­son­al infor­ma­tion from you (e.g. name, address, email address, tele­phone num­ber, etc.) in accor­dance with the pro­vi­sions of Ger­man data pro­tec­tion statutes. Infor­ma­tion is con­sid­ered per­son­al if it can be asso­ci­at­ed exclu­sive­ly to a spe­cif­ic nat­ur­al per­son. The legal frame­work for data pro­tec­tion may be found in the Ger­man Fed­er­al Data Pro­tec­tion Act (BDSG), the Gen­er­al Data Pro­tec­tion Reg­u­la­tion (GDPR) and the Tele­me­dia Act (TMG). The pro­vi­sions below serve to pro­vide infor­ma­tion as to the man­ner, extent and pur­pose for col­lect­ing, using and pro­cess­ing per­son­al infor­ma­tion by the provider.

Please be aware that data trans­fer via the inter­net is sub­ject to secu­ri­ty risks and, there­fore, com­plete pro­tec­tion against third-par­ty access to trans­ferred data can­not be ensured.

Cookies

Our web­site makes use of so-called cook­ies in order to rec­og­nize repeat use of our web­site by the same user/internet con­nec­tion sub­scriber. Cook­ies are small text files that your inter­net brows­er down­loads and stores on your com­put­er. They are used to improve our web­site and ser­vices. In most cas­es these are so-called “ses­sion cook­ies” that are delet­ed once you leave our web­site.

To an extent, how­ev­er, these cook­ies also pass along infor­ma­tion used to auto­mat­i­cal­ly rec­og­nize you. Recog­ni­tion occurs through an IP address saved to the cook­ies. The infor­ma­tion there­by obtained is used to improve our ser­vices and to expe­dite your access to the web­site. This con­sti­tutes a jus­ti­fied inter­est pur­suant to Art. 6 (1)(f) GDPR.

You can pre­vent cook­ies from being installed by adjust­ing the set­tings on your brows­er soft­ware accord­ing­ly. You should be aware, how­ev­er, that by doing so you may not be able to make full use of all the func­tions of our web­site.

Server Data

For tech­ni­cal rea­sons, data such as the fol­low­ing, which your inter­net brows­er trans­mits to us or to our web space provider (so called serv­er log files), is col­lect­ed:

  • type and ver­sion of the brows­er you use
  • oper­at­ing sys­tem
  • web­sites that linked you to our site (refer­rer URL)
  • web­sites that you vis­it
  • date and time of your vis­it
  • your Inter­net Pro­to­col (IP) address

This anony­mous data is stored sep­a­rate­ly from any per­son­al infor­ma­tion you may have pro­vid­ed, there­by mak­ing it impos­si­ble to con­nect it to any par­tic­u­lar per­son. The data is used for sta­tis­ti­cal pur­pos­es in order to improve our web­site and ser­vices.

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

Newsletter

Our web­site offers you the oppor­tu­ni­ty to sub­scribe to our newslet­ter. For this we use a ser­vice pro­vid­ed by mail­ing­work GmbH, Birken­weg 7, 09569 Oed­er­an. With this newslet­ter, we inform you at irreg­u­lar inter­vals about new devel­op­ments and prod­ucts as well as offers.

To receive our newslet­ter, we require a valid email address. We will review the email address you pro­vide for the pur­pose of deter­min­ing whether you are in fact the own­er of the email address pro­vid­ed or whether the actu­al own­er of said address is autho­rized to receive the newslet­ter. When sub­scrib­ing to our newslet­ter, we will store your IP address as well as the date and time you sub­scribed. This serves to pro­tect us in the event a third par­ty improp­er­ly and with­out your knowl­edge makes use of your email address to sub­scribe to our newslet­ter. We will not col­lect any oth­er data. The data there­by col­lect­ed is used sole­ly for the pur­pose of receiv­ing our newslet­ter. No data is trans­ferred to third par­ties. Nor is any of this infor­ma­tion matched to any infor­ma­tion that oth­er com­po­nents of our web­site may col­lect. You may can­cel your sub­scrip­tion to the newslet­ter at any time. You will find addi­tion­al details in the email con­firm­ing your sub­scrip­tion as well as in each newslet­ter or you can vis­it the fol­low­ing page: https://www.gett-group.com/content/gett-newsletter

The pro­cess­ing of the data pro­vid­ed via the newslet­ter form is based on your con­sent per Art. 6 (1)(a) GDPR.

Contacting us via email or contact form

On our web­site we offer you the oppor­tu­ni­ty to con­tact us, either by email and/or by using a con­tact form. In such event, infor­ma­tion pro­vid­ed by the user is stored for the pur­pose of facil­i­tat­ing com­mu­ni­ca­tions with the user. No data is trans­ferred to third par­ties. Nor is any of this infor­ma­tion matched to any infor­ma­tion that may be col­lect­ed by oth­er com­po­nents of our web­site.

The pro­cess­ing of the data pro­vid­ed via the con­tact form or email is based on your con­sent per Art. 6 (1)(a) GDPR.

Contacting us via Zendesk

We use Zendesk’s live chat sys­tem, a Zen­desk Inc. Cus­tomer Ser­vice Plat­form, 989 Mar­ket Street # 300, San Fran­cis­co, CA 94102, to process cus­tomer inquiries. Infor­ma­tion such as last name, first name and email address is record­ed on our web­site in order to answer your ques­tions. The legal basis here is an order pro­cess­ing con­tract pur­suant to Art. 6(1)(b) GDPR with Zen­desk, which in turn is EU-US Pri­va­cy Shield cer­ti­fied.

For more infor­ma­tion about Zendesk’s data pro­cess­ing, see Zendesk’s Pri­va­cy Pol­i­cy at https://www.zendesk.com/company/customers-partners/privacy-policy/. If you have any fur­ther ques­tions you are able to con­tact the data pro­tec­tion com­mis­sion­er at Zen­desk direct­ly via privacy@zendesk.com

Use of YouTube components with enhanced data protection mode

On our web­site we use com­po­nents (videos) of YouTube, LLC 901 Cher­ry Ave., 94066 San Bruno, CA, USA, a com­pa­ny belong­ing to Google Inc., Amphithe­atre Park­way, Moun­tain View, CA 94043, USA.

To this end, we use the “ - enhanced data pro­tec­tion mode - ” option pro­vid­ed by YouTube.

When you dis­play a page that has an embed­ded video, a con­nec­tion will be made to the YouTube serv­er and the con­tent will appear on the web­site via a com­mu­ni­ca­tion to your brows­er.

Accord­ing to the infor­ma­tion pro­vid­ed by YouTube, in “ - enhanced data pro­tec­tion mode -”, data is only trans­ferred to the YouTube serv­er, in par­tic­u­lar which of our web­sites you have vis­it­ed, if you watch the video. If you are logged onto YouTube at the same time, this infor­ma­tion will be matched to your YouTube mem­ber account. You can pre­vent this from hap­pen­ing by log­ging out of your mem­ber account before vis­it­ing our web­site.

Fur­ther infor­ma­tion about data pro­tec­tion by YouTube is pro­vid­ed by Google under the fol­low­ing link:

https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en&gl=en

We use embed­ded YouTube Videos to help make our web­site appeal­ing. This con­sti­tutes a jus­ti­fied inter­est pur­suant to Art. 6 (1)(f) GDPR.

Use of Google Analytics with anonymization

Our web­site uses Google Ana­lyt­ics, a web analy­sis ser­vice from Google Inc., 1600 Amphithe­atre Park­way, Moun­tain View, CA 94043 USA, here­inafter referred to as “Google“. Google Ana­lyt­ics employs so-called “cook­ies“, text files that are stored to your com­put­er in order to facil­i­tate an analy­sis of your use of the site.

The infor­ma­tion gen­er­at­ed by these cook­ies, such as time, place and fre­quen­cy of your vis­its to our site, includ­ing your IP address, is trans­mit­ted to Google’s loca­tion in the US and stored there.

The use of Google Ana­lyt­ics 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.

IP anonymiza­tion

In using Google Ana­lyt­ics our web­site employs the exten­sion, “_gat._anonymizeIp”. In doing so, Google abbre­vi­ates and there­by anonymizes your IP address before trans­fer­ring it from mem­ber states of the Euro­pean Union or sig­na­to­ry states to the Agree­ment on the Euro­pean Eco­nom­ic Area.

Google uses this infor­ma­tion to ana­lyze your use of our site, to com­pile reports for us on inter­net activ­i­ty and to pro­vide oth­er ser­vices relat­ing to web­site and inter­net use. Google may also trans­fer this infor­ma­tion to third par­ties where required to do so by law or where such third par­ties process this data on Google’s behalf.

Google states that it will in nev­er asso­ciate your IP address with oth­er data held by Google. You can pre­vent cook­ies from being installed by adjust­ing the set­tings on your brows­er soft­ware accord­ing­ly. You should be aware, how­ev­er, that by doing so you may not be able to make full use of all the func­tions of our web­site.

Brows­er add-on

Fur­ther­more, Google offers a deac­ti­va­tion add-on for most cur­rent browsers that pro­vides you with more con­trol over what data Google can col­lect on web­sites you access. The add-on tells the JavaScript (ga.js) used by Google Ana­lyt­ics not to trans­mit any infor­ma­tion about web­site vis­its to Google Ana­lyt­ics. How­ev­er, the brows­er deac­ti­va­tion add-on offered by Google Ana­lyt­ics does not pre­vent infor­ma­tion from being trans­mit­ted to us or to oth­er web analy­sis ser­vices we may engage. You can find addi­tion­al infor­ma­tion on how to install the brows­er add-on at the fol­low­ing link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de

By fol­low­ing this link you can set an opt-out cook­ie to pre­vent Google Ana­lyt­ics from col­lect­ing user data:
Dis­able Google Ana­lyt­ics on this site

Data Pro­cess­ing Amend­ment

We accept­ed a data pro­cess­ing amend­ment with Google.

Use of Google-AdWords

For pur­pos­es of pro­mo­tion, our web­site also employs the Google ad tool “Google-Adwords”. As part of this, our web­site employs the analy­sis ser­vice “Con­ver­sion-Track­ing” from Google Inc., 1600 Amphithe­atre Park­way, Moun­tain View, CA 94043 USA, here­inafter referred to as “Google“. If you access our site by way of a Google ad, a cook­ie is placed on your com­put­er. Cook­ies are small text files that your inter­net brows­er down­loads and stores to your com­put­er. These so-called “con­ver­sion cook­ies” cease to be active after 30 days and are not used to iden­ti­fy you per­son­al­ly. If you vis­it cer­tain pages of our web­site while the cook­ie is still active, we and Google know that you, as user, have clicked on ads placed on Google and were redi­rect­ed to our site.

Google uses the infor­ma­tion obtained through “con­ver­sion cook­ies” to com­pile sta­tis­tics for our web­site. These sta­tis­tics tell us the total num­ber of users who have clicked on our ad as well as which pages of our site were then accessed by each user. How­ev­er, nei­ther we nor oth­er adver­tis­ers who use “Google-Adwords” receive any kind of infor­ma­tion that can be used to per­son­al­ly iden­ti­fy users.

The use of Google AdWords 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.

You can pre­vent the instal­la­tion of “con­ver­sion cook­ies” by mak­ing the appro­pri­ate change to your brows­er set­tings, for exam­ple by set­ting your brows­er so that the auto­mat­ic place­ment of cook­ies is deac­ti­vat­ed or by block­ing cook­ies from the domain “googleadservices.com“.

You can obtain the rel­e­vant data pri­va­cy pol­i­cy from Google at the fol­low­ing link: https://services.google.com/sitestats/de.html

Use of Google Maps

We use the “Google Maps” com­po­nent of Google Inc., 1600 Amphithe­atre Park­way, Moun­tain View, CA 94043 USA, here­inafter “Google.”

Google sets a cook­ie in order to process the user con­fig­u­ra­tion and data when the page with the inte­grat­ed “Google Maps” com­po­nent is dis­played. As a gen­er­al rule, this cook­ie is not delet­ed by clos­ing the brows­er, but rather expires after a cer­tain time, as long as it is not pre­vi­ous­ly man­u­al­ly delet­ed by you.

If you do not agree with this pro­cess­ing of your data, you may choose to deac­ti­vate the “Google Maps” ser­vice and there­by pre­vent the trans­fer of data to Google. To do this, you must deac­ti­vate the Java Script func­tion in your brows­er. How­ev­er, we would like to point out that in this case you will not be able to use “Google Maps” or at least only to a lim­it­ed extent.

The use of “Google Maps” and the infor­ma­tion obtained through “Google Maps” is accord­ing to Google’s Terms of Use: http://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/terms/regional.html as well as the addi­tion­al Terms and Con­di­tions for “Google Maps”: https://www.google.com/intl/de_de/help/terms_maps.html

Google Maps is used to help make our web­site appeal­ing. This con­sti­tutes a jus­ti­fied inter­est pur­suant to Art. 6 (1)(f) GDPR.

Use of Google Web Fonts

For uni­form rep­re­sen­ta­tion of fonts, this page uses web fonts pro­vid­ed by Google. When you open a page, your brows­er loads the required web fonts into your brows­er cache to dis­play texts and fonts cor­rect­ly.

For this pur­pose your brows­er has to estab­lish a direct con­nec­tion to Google servers. Google thus becomes aware that our web page was accessed via your IP address.

The use of Google Web fonts is done in the inter­est of a uni­form and attrac­tive pre­sen­ta­tion of our web­site. This con­sti­tutes a jus­ti­fied inter­est pur­suant to Art. 6 (1)(f) GDPR.

If your brows­er does not sup­port web fonts, a stan­dard font is used by your com­put­er.

Fur­ther infor­ma­tion about han­dling user data, can be found at https://developers.google.com/fonts/faq and in Google’s pri­va­cy pol­i­cy at https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/.

Publication of vacancy announcements / job applications

We elec­tron­i­cal­ly col­lect and process your appli­ca­tion data for the pur­pose of com­plet­ing the appli­ca­tion process. If your appli­ca­tion results in the con­clu­sion of an employ­ment con­tract, the data col­lect­ed from you may be stored in your per­son­nel file for pur­pos­es of nor­mal orga­ni­za­tion­al and admin­is­tra­tive process­es in com­pli­ance with appro­pri­ate legal require­ments.

Upon rejec­tion of your appli­ca­tion, data you have pro­vid­ed is auto­mat­i­cal­ly delet­ed two months after noti­fi­ca­tion of rejec­tion. This does not apply in such instances where, due to legal require­ments (such as the bur­den of proof oblig­a­tion stip­u­lat­ed in the Equal Treat­ment Act) a longer stor­age peri­od is neces­si­tat­ed or when you express­ly agreed to have your data stored for a longer peri­od in our data­base of prospec­tive appli­cants.

Use of our Facebook fanpages

GETT Gerätetech­nik GmbH uses the tech­ni­cal plat­form and ser­vices of Face­book Ire­land Ltd, 4 Grand Canal Square Grand Canal Har­bour, Dublin 2, Ire­land for the infor­ma­tion ser­vice offered here.

Please note that you use these Face­book pages and its func­tions under your own respon­si­bil­i­ty:

This applies in par­tic­u­lar to the use of inter­ac­tive func­tions (e.g. com­ment­ing, shar­ing, rat­ing). Alter­na­tive­ly, you can also access the infor­ma­tion pro­vid­ed on this fan­page on our web­site at https://www.washable-keyboards.com

When you vis­it our Face­book page, Face­book col­lects your IP address and oth­er infor­ma­tion avail­able on your PC in the form of cook­ies. This infor­ma­tion is used to pro­vide us as the oper­a­tor of the Face­book pages with sta­tis­ti­cal infor­ma­tion about the use of the Face­book page. Face­book pro­vides more infor­ma­tion on this at the fol­low­ing link: https://de-de.facebook.com/help/pages/insights.

The data col­lect­ed about you in this con­text will be processed by Face­book Ltd. and, if nec­es­sary, trans­ferred to coun­tries out­side the Euro­pean Union. Face­book describes in gen­er­al terms what infor­ma­tion it receives and how it is used in its data usage guide­lines. There you will also find infor­ma­tion on how to con­tact Face­book and how to set up adver­tise­ments. The Data Usage Guide­lines are avail­able at: https://de-de.facebook.com/about/privacy The com­plete Face­book Data Usage Guide­lines can be found here: https://de-de.facebook.com/full_data_use_policy/p>

The man­ner in which Face­book uses the data from vis­it­ing Face­book pages for its own pur­pos­es, the extent to which activ­i­ties on the Face­book page are assigned to indi­vid­ual users, how long Face­book stores this data and whether data from a vis­it to the Face­book page is passed on to third par­ties is not con­clu­sive­ly and clear­ly named by Face­book and is not known to us.

When you access a Face­book page, the IP address assigned to your device is trans­mit­ted to Face­book. Accord­ing to Face­book, this IP address is made anony­mous (for “Ger­man” IP address­es) and delet­ed after 90 days. Face­book also stores infor­ma­tion about its users’ end devices (e.g. as part of the “Login Noti­fi­ca­tion” func­tion); Face­book may thus be able to assign IP address­es to indi­vid­ual users.

If you are cur­rent­ly logged in to Face­book as a user, there is a cook­ie with your Face­book ID on your device. This enables Face­book to under­stand that you vis­it­ed this page and how you used it. This also applies to all oth­er Face­book pages. Face­book but­tons inte­grat­ed into web­sites allow Face­book to record your vis­its to these web­sites and assign them to your Face­book pro­file. On the basis of this data, con­tent or adver­tis­ing can be offered tai­lored to you.

To avoid this, you should log out of Face­book or dis­able the “Stay signed in” fea­ture, delete the cook­ies present on your device and exit and restart your brows­er. This will delete Face­book infor­ma­tion that can imme­di­ate­ly iden­ti­fy you. This allows you to use our Face­book page with­out reveal­ing your Face­book account. When you access inter­ac­tive fea­tures of the site (likes, com­ment­ing, shar­ing, news, etc.), a Face­book login screen appears. Once you have logged in, Face­book will rec­og­nize you as a spe­cif­ic user again.

For infor­ma­tion about how to man­age or delete exist­ing infor­ma­tion about you, vis­it the fol­low­ing Face­book sup­port pages: https://de-de.facebook.com/about/privacy

We as provider of the infor­ma­tion ser­vice do not col­lect and process any fur­ther data from your use of our ser­vice.

You can find this pri­va­cy pol­i­cy on our Face­book page either in the imprint or under data pol­i­cy in the menu item “Info”.
