Name and address of the Data Protection Officer

In the following we provide information about the collection of personal data when using our website. Personal data are all data that can be related to you personally, e.g. name, address, e-mail addresses, user behaviour.

The person responsible for data processing on this website in accordance with Art. 4 Para. 7 of the EU Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO) is Meiser Straßenausstattung GmbH (see our imprint). You can contact our data protection officer at strassenausstattung@meiser.de or at Verimax GmbH, Warndtstraße 115, 66127 Saarbrücken,

When you contact us by e-mail or via a contact form, the data you provide (your name, your e-mail address and, if applicable, your address) will be stored by us in order to answer your questions or process your request. We delete the data arising in this connection after storage is no longer necessary or restrict processing if there are legal storage obligations.

If we use contracted service providers for individual functions of our offer or wish to use your data for advertising purposes, we will inform you in detail about the respective processes below. In doing so, we will also state the specified criteria for the storage period.

Collection of general data and information

If you use the website for informational purposes only, i.e. if you do not register or otherwise provide us with information, we only collect the personal data that your browser sends to our server. If you wish to view our website, we collect the following data, which is technically necessary for us to display our website and to ensure its stability and security (legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f DSGVO):

- IP address

- date and time of the request
- time zone difference from Greenwich Mean Time (GMT)
- content of the request (specific page)
- access status/HTTP status code
- the amount of data transferred
- the website from which the request originates
- the browser operating system and its interface
- the language and version of the browser software

In addition to the data mentioned above, cookies are stored on your computer when you use our website. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your hard drive in accordance with the browser you are using and through which certain information is transmitted to the party that sets the cookie (in this case us). Cookies cannot execute programs or transfer viruses to your computer. They are used to make the website more user-friendly and effective overall.

Use of cookies:

  1. a) This website uses the following types of cookies, the scope and functioning of which are explained below:

- Transient cookies (plus b)
- Persistent cookies (plus c)

b) Transient cookies are automatically deleted when you close the browser. This includes in particular session cookies. These store a so-called session ID, with which various requests from your browser can be assigned to the common session. This enables your computer to be recognised when you return to our website. The session cookies are deleted when you log out or close the browser.

c) Persistent cookies are automatically deleted after a specified period of time, which may vary depending on the cookie. You can delete the cookies in the security settings of your browser at any time.

d) You can configure your browser settings according to your preferences and, for example, refuse to accept third-party cookies or all cookies. Please note that you may then not be able to use all the functions of this website.

Recording general data and information

If you access our website, we automatically record general information. This general information is stored in the server's log files. We may record the (1) browser types and versions used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the website from where an accessing system came to our website (so-called referrer), (4) the sub-websites that are controlled via an accessing system on our website, (5) the date and time of the access to the website, (6) an internet protocol address (IP address), (7) the internet service provider of the accessing system and (8) other similar data and information used to defend against risks in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.

This information does not allow us to draw conclusions about you as an individual. This information is technically required to correctly deliver the requested website content and is compulsory when using the internet. Anonymous information of this kind is analysed by us statistically to optimise our website and the technology behind it.

Cookies

Like many other websites, we also use so-called “cookies”. Cookies are small text files that are transferred from a website server to your hard drive. We therefore automatically receive certain data, such as the IP address, browser used, your computer's operating system and connection to the internet.

Cookies cannot be used to start programs or transfer viruses to a computer. Using the information contained in cookies we can facilitate the navigation and enable the correct display of our websites.

Under no circumstances is the data we collect passed on to third parties or linked with personal data without your consent.

Of course you can also view our website without cookies. Internet browsers are normally set to accept cookies. You can control the use of cookies at any time via the settings in your browser. Please use the help functions of your internet browser to learn how to change the settings. Please note that individual functions of our website may not function if you have deactivated the use of cookies.

SSL encryption

In order to protect the security of your data during transmission, we use encryption processes that match the current state of technology (e.g. SSL) via HTTPS.

Newsletter

Users of the www.meiser.de website have the opportunity to subscribe to our company’s newsletter. Only your email address is required to send the newsletter. The provision of other, specially marked data is voluntary and is used to address you personally.

In the newsletter we inform our customers and business partners about company offers at regular intervals. The newsletter from our company can only be received by the affected person if (1) the affected person has a valid email address and (2) has registered to receive the newsletter. A confirmation using the double opt-in process is sent to the email address registered by an affected person to receive the newsletter. This confirmation email is used to check whether the owner of the email address has authorised the receipt of the newsletter as the affected person.

When registering for the newsletter, we also save the IP address assigned by the internet service provider (ISP) at the time of the registration, the computer system used as well as the date and time of the registration. The collection of this data is required to track the (potential) abuse of the email address of an affected person at a later time and is therefore used to legally protect the person responsible for processing.

The personal data collected when registering for the newsletter is only used to send our newsletter. In addition, subscribers to the newsletter are informed by email, if this is required to operate the newsletter service or a corresponding registration is required in the event of changes to the newsletter offering or changes to the technical issues. The personal data collected as part of the newsletter service is not passed on to third parties. The subscription to our newsletter can be terminated at any time by the affected person. The consent to the storage of personal data that the affected person provided to send the newsletter can be revoked at any time. Each newsletter contains an appropriate link to revoke the consent. There is also the option to unsubscribe directly on the website by contacting the person responsible for sending the newsletter or inform this person by other means.

Contact form

As a result of statutory requirements, we offer quick electronic contacts on our website to the company via email and contact forms. If an affected person makes contact with the person responsible for processing by email or contact form, the personal data provided by the affected person is stored automatically. Such personal data provided voluntarily by an affected person to the person responsible for processing is stored for the purposes of processing or contacting the affected person. This personal data is not passed on to third parties.

Deletion or blocking of data

We keep to the principles of data avoidance and economy. We therefore only store your personal data for as long as it is required to achieve the storage purposes stated here. After the end of the relevant purpose or end of these periods, the relevant data is blocked or deleted routinely and in line with the statutory requirements.

Your rights to information, correction, blocking, deletion and objection

 

Your rights to information, correction, blocking, deletion and objection

You have the following rights relating to the affected personal data:

- Right to information,
- Right to correction or deletion,
- Right to restriction on processing,
- Right to oppose the processing,
- Right to data transfer.

If you have issued consent to processing your data, you can revoke this at any time. Such a revocation influences the permissibility of processing your personal data after you have expressed it to us.

If the processing of your personal data is based on the balance of interests, you can object to the processing. This is the case if the processing is not required in particular to fulfil a contract with you which is the case for the functions described below. When exercising such an objection, we request that you state the reasons why we should not process your personal data. In the event of a justified objection we will check the facts and can either stop the data processing, modify it or show our binding reasons worthy of protection on the basis of which we will continue processing.

It goes without saying that you can object to the processing of your personal data for the purposes of advertising and data analysis at any time. You can inform us about your advertising objection using the following contact information.

Data protection for applications and filling vacancies

The person responsible for processing collects and processes personal data from applicants for the purpose of managing the application process. The process may take place electronically. This is in particular the case if an applicant provides appropriate application documents electronically, e.g. by email or via a web-based form, which are then transferred to the person responsible for processing. If the person responsible for processing concludes an employment contract with an applicant, the data provided is stored for the purposes of managing the employment relationship whilst complying with the statutory requirements. If the person responsible for processing does not conclude an employment contract with the applicant, the application documents are automatically deleted two months after notification of the refusal decision if no other operational interests for the person responsible for processing oppose the deletion. Other justified interests in this regard are for example an evidence obligation in a lawsuit under the German General Equality Act (AGG).

Use of Piwik (Matomo)

This website uses the web analysis service Matomo to analyse and regularly improve the use of our website. We can use the statistics obtained to improve our offer and make it more interesting for you as a user. The legal basis for the use of Matomo is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f DSGVO.

Cookies are stored on your computer for this evaluation. The prevention of the use of Matomo is possible in addition to the recommendation in § 3 paragraph 3 lit. d by removing the check mark below and thus activating the opt-out plug-in. If you prevent the storage of cookies, we point out that you may not be able to use this website to its full extent.

This website uses Matomo with the extension "AnonymizeIP". This means that IP-addresses are processed in a shortened form, so that a direct personal reference can be excluded. The IP address transmitted by your browser via Matomo is not merged with other data collected by us. The Matomo programme is an open source project. Information from the third party provider on data protection is available at https://matomo.org/privacy-policy.

Use of social media plug-ins

We currently use the following social media plug-ins: Facebook, Xing, LinkedIn, Google Maps. We use the so-called two-click solution. This means that when you visit our page, initially no personal data is transferred to the supplier of the plug-in. You can recognise the supplier of the plug-in via the marking on the box showing the initial letter or logo. We give you the opportunity to communicate directly with the plug-in’s supplier via the button. Only if you have clicked the marked field and therefore activate it, the plug-in supplier receives the information that you have called up on the relevant website from our online offering. In addition, the data stated in “recording general data and information” of this policy is transferred. In the case of Facebook and Xing, according to the relevant suppliers in Germany the IP address is made anonymous immediately after collection. By activating the plug-in all of your personal data is transferred to the relevant plug-in supplier and stored there (in the US for US suppliers). As the plug-in supplier undertakes data collection in particular via cookies, we recommend deleting all cookies in your browser’s security settings before clicking the greyed-out box.

We do not have influence on the data collected or data collection processes nor are we aware of the full extent of the data collection, purposes of processing or storage periods. We also have no information on the plug-in supplier deleting the collected data.

The plug-in supplier stores the data collected about you as usage profiles and uses these for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or needs-led design of the website. Such an analysis takes place in particular (even for logged in users) to show needs-led advertising and inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have a right to refuse the formation of these user profiles, but you have to contact the relevant supplier of the plug-in to exercise this right. The plug-ins give you the opportunity to interact with the social networks and other users so that we can improve our offering and make it more interesting for you as the user.

Data transfer takes place independently of whether you have an account with the plug-in supplier and are logged in there. If you are logged in with the plug-in supplier the data collected by us is assigned directly to the account with the plug-in supplier. If you press the activated button and e.g. link the page, the plug-in supplier also stores this information in your user account and shares it publicly with your contacts. We recommend that after using a social network you log out regularly in particular before activating the button as this enables you to avoid assignment to your profile with the plug-in supplier.

You receive other information on the scope and purpose of data collection and its processing by the plug-in supplier in the data protection policies of these suppliers shown below. You can also receive additional information on related rights and setting options to protect your private sphere.

Use of Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics uses so-called cookies, which are stored on your computer and enable an analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. This website uses Google Analytics with the extension "_anonymizeIp()". As a result, IP addresses are only processed in a shortened form, so that a personal reference can be excluded. If the data collected about you contains a personal reference, this is immediately excluded and the personal data is therefore deleted immediately. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there.
On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage.
The IP address transmitted by your browser within the framework of Google Analytics is not combined with other data from Google.

In addition to the recommendation in § 3 paragraph 3 letter d, you can prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) to Google and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.

As an alternative to the browser add-on, especially in the case of browsers on mobile devices, you can also prevent Google Analytics from recording the cookie by clicking on this link: Opt-Out Cookie (note: information on how to integrate the opt-out cookie can be found at: https://developers.google.com/analytics/devguides/collection/gajs/?hl=de#disable]. An opt-out cookie is set to prevent the future collection of your data when you visit this website. The opt-out cookie is only valid in this browser and only for our website and is stored on your device.

We use Google Analytics to analyse the use of our website and to improve it regularly. We can use the statistics obtained to improve our offer and make it more interesting for you as a user. The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f DSGVO. The maximum storage period for personal data is 14 months.

Integration of YouTube videos

We have integrated YouTube videos in our online offering that are stored at http://www.YouTube.com and can be played directly from our website. These are all integrated in the “extended data protection mode”, i.e. no data about you as a user is transferred to YouTube if you do not play the videos. Only when you play the videos is the data stated in Paragraph 2 transferred. We have no influence on the transfer of this data.

Through your visit to the website, YouTube receives notification that you opened up the relevant sub-page on our website. In addition, the data stated in “recording general data and information” of this policy is transferred. This occurs independently of whether you have created a YouTube user account that you are logged into or whether there is no user account. If you are logged into Google, your data is directly assigned to your account. If you do not want the assignment with your profile at YouTube, you must log out before activating the button. YouTube stores your data as usage profiles and uses these for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or needs-led design of its website. Such an analysis takes place in particular (even for users not logged in) to show needs-led advertising and inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have a right to refuse the formation of these user profiles, but you have to contact YouTube to exercise this right.

Additional information on the purpose and scope of the data collection and its processing by YouTube is found in the data protection policy. You can also receive additional information on related rights and setting options to protect your private sphere:
