1. data protection

We are pleased about your visit on our web pages and your interest in our offers. The protection of your personal data is important to us. In this data protection notice we explain how we collect your personal data, what we do with it, for what purposes and on what legal basis this happens, and what rights and claims are associated with it for you.

Our data protection information for the use of our websites does not apply to your activities on the websites of social networks or other providers, which you can reach via the links on our websites. Please refer to the websites of these providers for information on their data protection regulations.

2. collection and processing of your personal data

a. When you visit our websites, we store certain information about the browser and operating system you are using, the date and time of your visit, the access status (e.g. whether you were able to access a website or received an error message), the use of website features, the search terms you may have entered, the frequency with which you access individual websites, the name of files accessed, the amount of data transferred, the website from which you accessed our websites and the website you visit from our websites, whether by clicking on links on our websites or entering a domain directly in the input field of the same tab (or window) of your browser in which you opened our websites. In addition, for security reasons, in particular to prevent and detect attacks on our websites or attempts at fraud, we store your IP address and the name of your Internet service provider for a period of seven days.

b. We only store other personal data if you provide us with this data, e.g. in the context of a registration, a contact form, a survey, a competition or for the execution of a contract, and also in these cases only to the extent that we are permitted to do so on the basis of a consent given by you or in accordance with the applicable legal provisions (further information on this can be found below in the section “Legal basis for processing”).

c. You are under no legal or contractual obligation to disclose your personal data. However, it is possible that certain functions of our websites depend on the provision of personal data. If you do not provide personal data in these cases, this may result in functions not being available or only being available to a limited extent.

3. purposes of use

a. We use the personal data collected when you visit our website to operate it as conveniently as possible for you and to protect our IT systems from attacks and other illegal activities.

b. If you provide us with further personal data, e.g. in the context of a registration, a contact form, a survey, a competition or the execution of a contract, we will use this data for the aforementioned purposes, for purposes of customer administration and – if necessary – for purposes of processing and billing any business transactions, in each case to the extent necessary for this purpose.

4. transfer of personal data to third parties; social plug-ins

a. Our websites may also contain offers from third parties. If you click on such an offer, we transfer the necessary data to the respective provider (e.g. the indication that you have found this offer with us and possibly further information that you have already provided on our websites).

b. If we use so-called “social plug-ins” of social networks such as Facebook, Twitter and Google+ on our websites, we integrate them as follows:

When you visit our websites, the social plug-ins are deactivated, i.e. there is no transmission of any data to the operators of these networks. If you would like to use one of these networks, click on the relevant social plug-in to establish a direct connection with the server of the respective network.

If you have a user account with the network and are logged in when you activate the social plug-in, the network can assign your visit to our websites to your user account. If you want to avoid this, please log out of the network before activating the social plug-in. A social network cannot assign visits to other Hydrogenstock websites until you have activated an existing social plug-in.

If you activate a social plug-in, the network transfers the content that becomes available through it directly to your browser, which integrates it into our websites. In this situation, data transfers can also take place, which are initiated and controlled by the respective social network. Your connection to a social network, the data transfers between the network and your system, and your interactions on that platform are governed solely by the privacy policies of that network.

The social plug-in remains active until you deactivate it or delete your cookies.

c. If you click on the link to an offer or activate a social plug-in, personal data may be transferred to providers in countries outside the European Economic Area which, from the point of view of the European Union (“EU”), do not guarantee an “adequate level of protection” for the processing of personal data in accordance with EU standards. Please bear this in mind before clicking on a link or activating a social plug-in to trigger a transfer of your data.

5. evaluation of usage data; use of analysis tools

a. We would like to tailor the content of our websites as precisely as possible to your interests and in this way improve our services for you. We use the following analysis tool(s) to identify user preferences and particularly popular areas of our websites: Google Analytics, Adobe Analytics.

b. When using these analysis tools, data may be transmitted to and processed by servers located in the United States. Please note the following: In the USA, the European Union does not believe that there is an “adequate level of protection” for the processing of personal data in accordance with EU standards. However, this level of protection can be replaced for individual companies by certification according to the so-called “EU-U.S. Privacy Shield”.

c. If you do not want us to collect and evaluate information about your visit to our websites using the analysis tools mentioned above, you can object to this at any time for the future (“opt-out”).

We implement your objection by setting an opt-out cookie in your browser. This cookie only serves to assign your objection.

When you visit one of our pages equipped with a YouTube plug-in, a connection is established to YouTube’s servers. This will tell the YouTube server which of our pages you have visited. If you are logged into your YouTube account, you can allow YouTube to directly associate your surfing behavior with your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account. YouTube is used in the interest of an appealing presentation of our online offers. This constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. Further information on the handling of user data can be found in YouTube’s data protection declaration at: https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy.

6. user-based information (targeting and retargeting)

To be able to tailor our online marketing (e.g. banner advertising) on the websites of our retargeting partners (Flashtalking, Google Adwords, Google Doubleclick and Vivaki) more specifically to your needs and interests, we use so-called retargeting technologies. Cookies are used to store your interest in our products and services. These cookies are read out and used when you visit other websites that cooperate with our retargeting partners in order to inform you as much as possible about your interests. This is done anonymously, i.e. you cannot be identified via retargeting.

If you do not wish Hydrogenstocks and its retargeting partners to collect, store and analyse information about your visit and to tailor banner advertising to your interests, you can object to this at any time in the future (opt-out).

To technically implement this objection, an opt-out cookie is set in your browser. This cookie serves exclusively to assign your objection. Please note that for technical reasons, an opt-out cookie can only be used for the browser from which it was set.

d. In addition, we process personal data for the purposes of safeguarding our legitimate interests and the legitimate interests of third parties pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO. Maintaining the functionality of our IT systems, but also the marketing of our own and third-party products and services and the legally required documentation of business contacts are such legitimate interests.

9. deletion of your personal data

Your IP address and the name of your Internet service provider, which we only store for security reasons, will be deleted after seven days. We also delete your personal data as soon as the purpose for which we have collected and processed the data no longer applies. Beyond this time a storage takes place only, if this is necessary according to the laws, regulations or other laws of the European Union or a member state of the European Union, to which we are subject.

10. rights concerned

a. As a data subject, you have the right to information (Art. 15 DSGVO), rectification (Art. 16 DSGVO), deletion (Art. 17 DSGVO), limitation of processing (Art. 18 DSGVO) and transferability (Art. 20 DSGVO).

b. If you have consented to the processing of your personal data by us, you have the right to revoke your consent at any time. The lawfulness of the processing of your personal data up to a revocation is not affected by the revocation. Further processing of this data on the basis of a different legal basis, for example to fulfil legal obligations (see section “Legal basis for processing”), shall also remain unaffected.
