Privacy Policy


Privacy statement:

Data protection is of special concern to Binder Technologie GmbH. Our efforts in particular to meet the requirements of the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the Federal Data Protection Act in its new version are primarily aimed at respecting your privacy and personal sphere.

Today, the use of electronic data processing systems (EDP) is indispensable for modern companies such as Binder Technologie GmbH. We assure you that we will do our utmost to comply with the statutory regulations.

It is possible to use the Internet pages of Binder Technologie GmbH without disclosing any personal information. However, if an individual, or data subject, wishes to make use of our company’s special services via our website, it may be necessary to process personal data. If this is the case and there is no legal basis for this processing, our standard practice is to obtain the consent of the individual concerned.

We will never sell or rent your personal information to third parties for their marketing or other purposes. If you do not agree to the terms of the privacy statement, please do not send us any personal information.

1. General/Definitions

This privacy statement is based on terms used in the GDPR and should be easy for everyone to read and understand. For this reason, we would like to start by explaining various terms:

a) Personal data

Personal data is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (‘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 one or more features specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.

b) Data subject

A data subject is any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data is processed by the controller.

c) Processing

Processing is any operation or set of operations which is performed on personal data, whether or not with automated means, such as collection, recording, organisation, structuring, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.

d) Restriction of processing

Restriction of processing is the marking of stored personal data with the aim of limiting its processing in future.

e) Profiling

Profiling is 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 analyse or predict aspects concerning that natural person’s work performance, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behaviour, location or movements.

f) Pseudonymisation

Pseudonymisation is the processing of personal data in such a way 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 is not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.

g) Controller

The controller is the natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which, alone or jointly with others, determines the purposes and means of processing personal data. Where the purposes and means of such processing are determined by Union or Member State law, the controller or the specific criteria for the controller’s nomination may be provided for by Union or Member State law.

h) Processor

A processor is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which processes personal data on behalf of the controller.

i) Recipient

A recipient is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or another body, to which the personal data is disclosed, whether a third party or not. 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.

j) Third party

A third party is 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 authorised to process personal data.

k) Consent

Consent is any freely given, specific, informed and unambiguous indication of the individual’s wishes by which the data subject, either by a statement or by a clear affirmative action, signifies agreement to the processing of personal data relating to him or her.

2. Information on the collection of personal data

(1) The following information provides details on what personal data is collected when you access our website. The term ‘personal data’ refers to all data that relates to you personally, such as name, address, email addresses, user behaviour.

(4) When you contact us by email or using an online contact form, all the data you give us (your email address and, where applicable, your name and telephone number) will be saved in order to reply to your queries. Personal data of this nature which the data subject gives the controller voluntarily is stored for processing purposes or for contacting the data subject. The data collected in such cases will be deleted when storage is no longer necessary, or processing will be restricted if a statutory obligation of retention exists.

(5) Where we use third-party providers to provide individual service functions or wish to use your data for advertising purposes, we are informing you in detail below about the individual processes involved. We also set out the criteria used to determine the period for which data is stored.

(6) As the controller responsible for data processing, we have put in place numerous technical and organisational measures to ensure that the personal data processed via this website is protected as fully as possible. However, internet-based data transfers can always pose inherent security risks, and absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. Individuals are therefore free to provide us with personal data by alternative means, such as by telephone.

(7) As a responsible company, we do not use automatic decision-making or profiling.

3. Your rights

(1) You have the following rights concerning your personal data:

– Right of access:

The GDPR gives data subjects the right to be informed by the controller of any personal data concerning them which is being stored, and to obtain a copy of that information, free of charge at any time. Furthermore, European legislation and regulations stipulate that data subjects have the right to obtain the following:

Information about the purposes of the processing

Information about the categories of personal data being processed

Information about the recipients or categories of recipients with whom the personal data has been, or is being, shared, particularly recipients in third countries or international organisations

Information, where possible, about the envisaged period for which the personal data will be stored or, if this is not possible, the criteria used to determine that period

Information about the existence of the right to rectification or erasure of their personal data, or to restrict processing by the controller, or to object to processing

Information about the existence of the right to complain to the data protection supervisory authority

Where the personal data was not collected from the data subject, all available information as to the source of the data

Information about the existence of automated decision-making, including profiling, pursuant to Art. 22(1) and (4) of the GDPR and, at least in these cases, a meaningful explanation of the logic involved in, and the significance and envisaged consequences of processing for the data subject

Additionally, data subjects have a right to know whether personal data has been transferred to a third country or an international organisation. Where this is the case, the data subject has the right to be informed of the appropriate safeguards in place concerning the transfer.

Data subjects who wish to use the right of access can contact one of the controller’s employees at any time.

– Right to revoke consent under data protection law:

Any data subject affected by the processing of personal data has the right to revoke consent to the processing of personal data at any time.

Any data subject who wishes to exercise the right to revoke consent may contact one of the controller’s employees by any means and at any time.

– Right to rectification:

The data subject has the right to ask the controller to immediately correct any incorrect personal data concerning him or her. Taking into account the purposes of processing, the data subject has the right to request the completion of incomplete personal data, including by means of an explanatory statement.

Data subjects who wish to use the right of access can contact one of the controller’s employees at any time.

– Right to erasure / Right to be forgotten:

The data subject has the right to require the controller to immediately delete personal data about him or her and the controller is obliged to delete the data without delay if one of the following reasons applies:

The data is no longer needed for the purposes for which it was collected or otherwise processed.

The data subject revokes the consent on which processing was based in accordance with Art. 6(1)(a) or Art. 9(2)(a) and there is no other legal basis for processing.

The data subject objects to processing in accordance with Art. 21(1) and there are no overriding legitimate reasons for processing, or the data subject objects to processing in accordance with Art. 21(2).

The personal data was processed unlawfully.

Deletion of the personal data is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation under EU law or the law of the Member States to which the controller is subject.

The personal data was collected in relation to information society services offered in accordance with Art. 8(1).

If a data subject wishes to exercise his or her right to erasure/right to be forgotten, he or she can contact one of the controller’s employees at any time for this purpose.

If we have made the personal data public and we are required to delete it in accordance with Art. 17(1) of the GDPR, we will take reasonable action, including technical measures, taking into account the technology available and the implementation costs, to inform controllers who process the personal data that a data subject has requested that they delete all links to this personal data or copies or replications of this personal data. Our employees will take the necessary action.

– Right to restrict processing:

The data subject has the right to require the controller to restrict processing if one of the following conditions is met:

The accuracy of the personal data is disputed by the data subject, for as long as it takes for the controller to verify the accuracy of the personal data,

The processing is unlawful and the data subject declines to exercise the right to erasure of the personal data and instead requests restriction of the use of the data;

The controller no longer requires the personal data for processing purposes but the data subject needs it to establish, exercise or defend legal claims, or

The data subject has objected to processing in accordance with Art. 21(1) for as long as it takes to determine whether the legitimate reasons of the controller outweigh those of the data subject.

If a data subject wishes to exercise the right to restrict processing, he or she may contact one of the controller’s employees at any time.

– Right to object to processing:

Any data subject affected by the processing of personal data has the right, based on Art. 6(1)(e) or (f) of the GDPR, to object to the processing of this data at any time, for reasons relating to their particular situation. This also applies to profiling based on these provisions.

In the event of a conflict, we will no longer process the personal data unless we can demonstrate compelling reasons for processing that outweigh the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject, or unless the processing is required to establish, exercise or defend legal rights.

Where we process personal data for direct marketing purposes, the data subject has the right to object at any time to processing of his or her personal data for such marketing. This also includes profiling where this is related to such direct marketing. If the data subject objects to our processing for direct marketing purposes, we will no longer process the personal data for these purposes.

Additionally, the data subject has the right, for reasons arising from his or her particular situation, to object to the processing of personal data relating to him or her, which we process for scientific or historical research purposes or for statistical purposes pursuant to Art. 89(1) of the GDPR, unless the processing is necessary for performing a task that is in the public interest.

In order to exercise the right to object, the data subject can contact any employee. In the context of the use of information society services, and notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC, the data subject may exercise his or her right to object by automated means using technical specifications.

– Right to portability:

The data subject has the right to receive the personal data concerning him or her which he or she has provided to a controller in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format and has the right to transfer this data to another controller without hindrance from the controller to which the personal data was provided, where

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

processing is carried out using automated procedures.

In exercising his or her right to data portability pursuant to Art. 20(1) of the GDPR, the data subject has the right to have the personal data transferred directly from one controller to another, where technically feasible and the rights and freedoms of other persons are not impaired.

If a data subject wishes to exercise this right to data portability, he or she can contact one of the controller’s employees at any time.

– Automated decision-making in individual cases, including profiling

According to the GDPR, data subjects have the right to not be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which has legal effect for them or which affects them significantly in a similar manner, provided that the decision

(1) is not required to enter into or fulfil a contract between the data subject and the controller, or

(2) is authorised by the laws of the Union or Member States to which the controller is subject, and this legislation contains appropriate measures to safeguard the rights and freedoms and the legitimate interests of the data subject, or

(3) is made with the express consent of the data subject.

If the decision is required in order to enter into or fulfil a contract between the data subject and the controller or if it is made with the express consent of the data subject, we will take appropriate measures to safeguard the rights, freedoms and legitimate interests of the data subject; this includes at least the right of the data subject to intervene, to present his or her own position and to challenge the decision.

If the data subject wishes to assert rights relating to automated decisions, he or she may contact one of the controller’s employees at any time.

(2) You also have the right to complain to a data protection supervisory authority about the processing of your personal data by us. The following supervisory authority is responsible for our company:

(2) In addition to the above-mentioned data, cookies are stored on your computer when you use our website. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your hard drive by your browser. They allow the website that places the cookie (in this case, us) to collect certain information. Cookies are not able to run programs or transfer viruses to your computer. Their purpose is to make our website more user-friendly and effective.

(3) Use of cookies:

a) This website uses the following types of cookies. The extent of their use and their purpose are explained below:

– Transient cookies (refer to b)

– Persistent cookies (refer to c)

– Flash cookies (refer to f).

b) Transient cookies are automatically deleted when you close the browser. These include session cookies in particular. They store a so-called session ID which can be used to assign various requests from your browser to the shared session. This will allow your computer to be recognised when you return to our website. 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 cookies at any time in your browser’s security settings.

d) You can configure your browser settings to suit your preferences and, for example, reject third-party cookies or all cookies. Please note in this case that you may not be able to use all the features of this website.

e) We use cookies to identify you for subsequent visits if you have an account with us. Otherwise, you would have to log in again every time you visit.

f) Flash cookies used are not recorded by your browser but by your Flash plug-in. We also use HTML5 storage objects, which are stored on your end device. These objects store the required data regardless of the browser you are using and do not have an automatic expiry date. If you do not wish Flash cookies to be processed, you must install an appropriate add-on, such as ‘Better Privacy’ for Mozilla Firefox (https://addons.mozilla.org/de/firefox/addon/betterprivacy/) or the Adobe Flash Killer Cookie for Google Chrome. You can prevent the use of HTML5 storage objects by setting your browser to private mode. We also recommend that you delete your cookies and browser history manually at regular intervals.

5. Other features and services of our site

(1) In addition to the purely informational use of our website, we offer various services that you can use if you are interested. To do so, you will usually need to provide additional personal information that we use to provide the particular service and which is subject to the data processing principles referred to above.

(2) We sometimes use external service providers to process your data. These have been carefully selected and commissioned by us, and are bound by our instructions and regularly checked.

(3) We may also share your personal information with third parties when we offer promotions, competitions, contracts or similar services jointly with our partners. You will receive further information on this when you enter your personal data or refer to the description of the promotion below.

(4) If our service providers or partners are located in a country outside the European Economic Area (EEA), we will inform you about the consequences of this fact in the description of the promotion.

6. Data protection for applications

The controller collects and processes applicants’ personal data for implementing the application process. Processing may also be carried out electronically. This is particularly the case if an applicant submits the relevant application documents to the controller electronically, such as by email or using a contact form on the website. If the controller concludes an employment contract with an applicant, the data transmitted will be stored for the purpose of processing the employment contract in compliance with the statutory provisions. Where the controller does not enter into an employment contract with the applicant, the application file will be deleted automatically unless its deletion conflicts with any other legitimate interests of the controller. Other legitimate interests in this regard may include, for example, the duty to provide evidence in proceedings under the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG).

The processing of applicant data is carried out to fulfil our (pre)contractual obligations within the application procedure as defined by Art. 6(1)(b) and Art. 6(1)(f) of the GDPR insofar as data processing becomes necessary for us, e.g. within the framework of legal proceedings (in Germany, § 26 BDSG (Federal Data Protection Act) applies in addition).

7. Objecting to or revoking consent to the processing of your data

(1) If you have consented to your data being processed, you can revoke this consent at any time using any channels of communication. Revoking your consent will affect the legitimacy of the processing of your personal data after your notification.

(2) If we process your personal data on the basis of a balance of interests, you may object to it being processed. This applies in particular if processing is not necessary for the performance of a contract with you. We describe each case in the following description of the functions. In the event that you exercise this right to object, we would ask you to explain the reasons why we should not process your personal data in the way we have been doing. Based on your reasoned objection, we will examine the situation and either discontinue or adapt processing, or draw your attention to our compelling legitimate reasons for continuing processing on that basis.

(3) Naturally, you may object to the processing of your personal data for advertising and data analysis purposes at any time. You can notify us of your objection to its use for advertising by contacting us at the address given in section 2(2) of this privacy statement.

8. Statutory or contractual provisions for providing personal data/Necessity for performance of a contract/Consequences of non-provision

We would like to inform you that the provision of personal data is partly required by law. However, a data subject may also be required to provide us with personal information in order for a contract to be performed. Failure to provide this data would mean that the contract could not be concluded. Our staff will be pleased to answer any questions you may have.

9. Newsletter

(1) By giving your consent, you can subscribe to our newsletter which informs you about our current promotions. The products and services advertised are specified in the consent form.

(2) We use a so-called double opt-in procedure to register for our newsletter. This means that after your registration, we will send an email to the specified email address asking you to confirm that you wish to receive the newsletter. If you do not confirm your registration within 24 hours, your information will be blocked and automatically deleted after one month. In addition, we store the IP addresses and computer system you use, and the dates of registration and confirmation. The purpose of the procedure is to verify your registration and, if necessary, to clarify any possible misuse of your personal data.

(3) The personal data collected when you register for the newsletter will only be used to send our newsletter. Furthermore, subscribers to the newsletter may be contacted and informed by email if this is necessary for operating the newsletter service or for registering for this. This could be the case in the event of changes to the newsletter service or changes to the technical conditions. The personal data collected as part of the newsletter service will not be passed on to third parties.

(4) Your email address is the only mandatory information for sending the newsletter. The indication of additional, differently marked data is voluntary and will be used to address you personally. After your confirmation, we save your email address for the purpose of sending you the newsletter. The legal basis for this is Art. 6(1)(s.1)(a) of the GDPR.

(5) You can revoke your consent to receiving the newsletter at any time and cancel your subscription to the newsletter. You can use any means of communication to revoke your consent, such as by clicking on the link provided in every newsletter email, by sending an email to [Newsletter@example.com] or by sending a message to the contact details indicated in the legal notice.

(6) We would draw your attention to the fact that we evaluate your user behaviour when sending the newsletter. For this evaluation, the emails sent contain so-called web beacons or tracking pixels which represent one-pixel image files stored on our website. For evaluation purposes, we link the data mentioned in section 4 and the web beacons to your email address and an individual ID. [OPTIONAL: Links received in the newsletter also contain this ID.] [EITHER:] The data is collected exclusively in a pseudonymised form, i.e. the IDs are not linked to your other personal data, and a direct link to a particular individual is prevented. [OR:] We use the data obtained in this way to create a user profile in order to tailor the newsletter to your individual interests. We record when you read our newsletter, which links you click in it and infer your personal interests from this. We link this data to the actions you take on our website. [END of alternatives]

You may opt out of this tracking at any time by clicking on the separate link provided in each email or by informing us through any other means of communication. The information will be kept for as long as you subscribe to the newsletter. After you have unsubscribed, we store the data purely statistically and anonymously. This tracking is not possible if you have deactivated the default display of images in your email program. In this case, the newsletter will not be displayed completely and you may not be able to use all the functions. If you display the images manually, the tracking described above will take place.
