3.1. When using the website for purely informational purposes, i.e. if you neither register nor otherwise transmit information, we will collect only the personal data that your browser transmits to our server. All collection and processing of data takes place for specific purposes. These may be due to technical necessity, contractual requirements or your express request. If you make use of specific services on our website, we shall obtain your consent regarding the collection and processing of the data.
When our website is viewed, we collect the following data, which is technically necessary in order to display our website and ensure stability and security. The data is also used for website troubleshooting.
The collection of data is necessary for displaying the website and the saving of data in log files is necessary for operating our website and ensuring IT security.
This data will be saved temporarily in the log files of our system for a maximum of seven days. Saving for a longer period is possible, but in such cases the IP addresses will be shortened so that they can no longer be associated with the client and the data is rendered anonymous.
The saving of information in the user's end device or access to information is in line with Section 25(2) of the Telecommunications and Telemedia Data Protection Act [TTDSSG]. Data processing is carried out based on our legal obligation to ensure IT security pursuant to Art. 6(1)(c) GDPR in conjunction with Art. 32 GDPR or on the basis of Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR.
3.2. In addition to the purely informational use of our website, we offer various services which you may use if you are interested and after consenting to data processing (legal basis: Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR) and we use further standard functions to analyse and market our services as detailed below. For this, you must generally supply additional personal data, and/or we process such additional data, which is used by us to provide you with the respective service. The aforementioned data processing principles apply for all data processing purposes described here.
3.3. We sometimes use external service providers to process your data. These are carefully selected by us and are bound to follow our instructions. If our services providers or partners are based in a country outside the EU/European Economic Area (EEA), we will notify you of the consequences of this in the service description.
4.1. In addition to the data specified above, we use technical tools for various functions when you are using our website, in particular cookies, which are stored on your computer. You can choose whether to allow cookies in general or select individual additional functions when you call up our website or at any time thereafter. You can make changes in your browser settings or via our consent manager. The section below describes cookies from a technical point of view and then goes into detail about your individual selection options with a description of technically necessary cookies and cookies that you can select/deselect.
4.2. Cookies are text files or pieces of information in a database that are stored on your hard drive and can be ascribed to the browser you are using so that specific information can be sent to the body that sets the cookie. Cookies cannot run any programmes or transmit viruses to your computer. They are primarily used to make the internet service more effective and user-friendly. This website uses the following types of cookies, for which the function and legal basis are explained below:
4.3. Mandatory functions that are technically necessary to display the website: The technical design of the website requires us to use certain technologies, in particular cookies. Without these technologies, our website cannot be displayed (correctly and completely) or the support functions might not be enabled properly. We essentially use transient cookies that are deleted once you leave the website or when you close your browser at the latest. You cannot deselect these cookies if you want to use our website. You can view the individual cookies in the consent manager.
4.4. Optional cookies if you give your consent: We set various cookies only once you have given your consent, which you can select when you first visit our website using the so-called cookie consent tool. These functions will be enabled only if you give your consent and can be used in particular to analyse and improve visits to our website, make it easier for you to use via different browsers or end devices, recognise you when you visit the website again or deliver advertising (e.g. to tailor advertising to your interests, measure the effectiveness of ads or trigger interest-related advertising).
4.5. Where cookies are used, data processing is usually based on your consent pursuant to Section 25(1) TTDSG in conjunction with Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR. If cookie use is essential for us, this will be carried out pursuant to Section 25(2)(2) TTDSG. Further data processing is carried out pursuant to Art. 6(1) GDPR.
4.6. As part of consent management ('cookie banner'), Schüco Polymer Technologies KG gives you the option of deciding how you want cookies to be set when using our website and of changing the settings for cookies individually:Einstellungen ändern
In principle, the data you provide us with will not be passed on to third parties. In particular, data is not passed on to third parties for their own advertising purposes. However, we employ the use of service providers where necessary, e.g. for technical maintenance services or services in connection with the enhancement of our website, for the operation of this website, or for other products of ours. These are carefully selected and commissioned by us; they are bound to follow our instructions and are regularly monitored.
If our services providers or partners are based in a country outside the European Economic Area (EEA), we will notify you of the consequences of this in the service description.
Usually, when a user visits a website into which a social media button has been integrated, the button solutions provided by the social networks (such as the Like button on Facebook) already transmit personal data to the respective social network.
For us, this is not the case. No plug-in buttons are incorporated into the footer of our website. Only icons are featured there. Upon clicking on these, they direct you to external links within the corresponding social media platforms. You are actively connected with the respective platforms only if you yourself activate them by clicking and, where applicable, log into the respective platform. No transfer of personal data takes place as a result of the integration of icons for social media platforms when our website is accessed.
7.1. We have incorporated YouTube videos into our website, which are saved at www.YouTube.com and can be played directly on our website. YouTube is a video platform service offered by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland ('Google'), that allows users to upload videos and make them publicly accessible. The YouTube videos are all incorporated in “extended data protection mode”, i.e. no data about you as a user will be sent to YouTube if you do not play the videos. Only if you play the videos will the data specified in paragraph 2 be transferred. We have no influence on this data transfer. The legal basis for showing the videos is Art. 6(1)(1)(a) GDPR.
7.2. As a result of your visiting the website, YouTube will be informed that you have visited the corresponding sub-page on our website. The aforementioned basic data such as IP address and timestamp are also sent. This takes place regardless of whether YouTube provides a user account with which you are logged in, or whether no user account exists. If you are logged into Google, your data is directly attributed to your account. If you do not want this attribution to take place with your YouTube profile, then you must log out before activating the button. YouTube stores your data as a user profile and uses it for the purpose of advertising, market research and/or designing its website in line with demand. Such an analysis takes place (even for users who are not logged in) in particular in order to provide needs-based advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You are entitled to object to the creation of this user profile and should contact YouTube in order to exercise this right.
7.3. The collected information will also be stored on Google servers in the USA. For such cases, the provider has provided information that it has imposed a standard equivalent to the former EU-US Privacy Shield and has agreed to comply with the applicable data protection laws for international data transfer. We have also agreed what are known as 'standard contract clauses' with Google for the purpose of ensuring an appropriate level of data protection.
7.4. Please see the data privacy statement for more information about the purpose and scope of data collection and processing by YouTube. This also provides more information about your rights and setting options to protect your privacy.
8.1. This website uses Google Analytics, a web tracking service of Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland ('Google'). The purpose of using this tool is to allow us to analyse your user interactions on websites and in apps and to improve our website and make it more interesting for you as a user, based on the resultant statistics and reports.
8.2. The interactions between you as a user of the website and our website are primarily collected using cookies, data about the device/browser, IP addresses and website or app activities. Google Analytics also collects your IP addresses in order to ensure service security and allow us as the website operator to establish which country, region or place the respective user is from ('IP geolocation'). However, we naturally use the anonymisation function ('IP masking') for your protection, i.e. Google shortens IP addresses within the EU/EEA by the final octet.
8.3. Google acts as a processor and we have concluded a corresponding agreement with Google. The information generated by cookies and the (usually shortened) IP addresses relating to your use of this website are generally transferred to a Google server in the USA and processed there. For such cases, Google has provided information that it has imposed a standard equivalent to the former EU-US Privacy Shield and has agreed to comply with the applicable data protection laws for international data transfer. We have also agreed 'standard contract clauses' with Google for the purpose of ensuring an appropriate level of data protection in the third country.
8.4. We can also check on the success of our marketing campaigns, as Google links the information to Google Ads and other products in use. You can disable this function via the Ad Settings manager: www.google.com/settings/ads/onweb. For more information about linking, see support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245.
8.5. The legal basis for the collection and further processing of information (for a maximum of 14 months) is the consent you give (Art. 6(1)(1)(a) GDPR). You can revoke your consent at any time without this affecting the permissibility of processing before such revocation. In Apps, you can reset the ad ID under Android or iOS settings. The easiest way to revoke consent is to use our consent manager or install the Google browser add-on via the following link: tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.
8.6. For more information about the scope of Google Analytics services, please see marketingplatform.google.com/. For general information about data processing that also applies to Google Analytics according to Google, please see the Google data privacy statement under policies.google.com/privacy.
9.1. We use Google Ads provided by the service provider specified in Section 8 to draw attention to our services by means of advertising. If you go to our website via a Google ad, Google Ads stores a cookie on your end device. The legal basis for processing your data is Art. 6(1)(1)(a) GDPR, i.e. its inclusion takes place only after you give your consent.
9.2. Google supplies the ads via 'ad servers'. We and other websites use 'ad server cookies', by means of which certain parameters such as the display of ads or user clicks can be used to measure the success of the ads. The Google Ads cookies stored on our website can provide us with information about the success of our advertising campaigns. These cookies are not to be used to identify you personally. The analysis values stored for this cookie are usually the unique cookie ID, the number of ad impressions per placement (frequency), the last impression (relevant for post-view conversions) and opt-out information (tags showing that the user no longer wishes to be contacted).
9.3. The cookies set by Google allow Google to recognise your Internet browser again in future. If a user visits certain pages of an Ads client website and the cookie stored on their computer has not yet expired, Google and the client are able to detect that the user clicked on an ad and was subsequently forwarded to this site. A different cookie is assigned to each Ads client so that the cookies cannot be tracked via the websites of other Ads clients. Incorporating Google Ads means Google is informed that you have visited the corresponding part of our website or clicked on one of our ads. If you have registered for a Google service, Google can link the visit to your account. Even if you are not registered with Google or have not logged in, it is possible that the provider may find out and store your IP address.
9.4. Your browser automatically connects directly with the Google server via the marketing tools. We ourselves do not collect personal data independently through the aforementioned advertising activity, but we make it possible for Google to do so. Google supplies to us statistical analyses only, providing information about which ads were clicked on how often at what price. We do not receive any further data from the use of advertising; in particular, we cannot identify users through this information.
9.5. You can revoke your consent at any time without this affecting the permissibility of processing before such revocation. The easiest way to revoke consent is to use our consent manager or the following functions: a) use the corresponding setting in your browser software to suppress third-party cookies so that you do not see ads from third-party providers; b) use the setting in your browser to block cookies from Google Ad Services or use the link adssettings.google.com, this setting being deleted when you delete cookies; c) disable interest-related ads from the provider that are part of the self-regulation campaign “About Ads” via the link www.aboutads.info/choices, this setting being deleted when you delete cookies; d) permanently disable cookies in your Firefox, Internet Explorer or Google Chrome browser via the link www.google.com/settings/ads/plugin. Please note that this may mean you cannot use all the website functions to their full extent.
9.6. For more information about data protection at Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland, please see: support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245.
We use Google Ads with the additional 'Google Conversion Tracking' application. This is a process that we can use to check the success of our advertising campaigns. The ads are assigned a technical provision such as an ID that we can use to determine how a user interacts with ads after clicking and whether one of our services is actually being used. This means we receive information in statistical form about the total number of people who view our ads, which ads are particularly popular and possibly other information about the consequences of the ad. The legal basis for processing the data is again Art. 6(1)(1)(a) GDPR, i.e. its inclusion takes place only after you give your consent. You can prevent or cease the use of the conversion tracking function in the same way as described above for Google Ads.
We use Google Ads with the additional 'Google Remarketing' application. With this process, we can create ads on the basis of existing information about you and appeal to you again as you continue to browse the Internet. This is based on the cookies set when you visit our website, which Google uses to collect your user behaviour when you visit various different websites and evaluate this on a pseudonymised basis. According to Google itself, the data collected as part of remarketing is not merged with your personal data that may have been stored by Google.
The legal basis for processing the data is again Art. 6(1)(1)(a) GDPR, i.e. its inclusion takes place only after you give your consent. You can prevent or cease the use of the remarketing function in the same way as described above for Google Ads.
12.1. Furthermore, the website uses advertising measures from Facebook Inc. (“Facebook”). By adding the Facebook pixel to our website, we can show our advertising measures (“Facebook ads”) to the users of our website and the Facebook social networking site and then measure and assess their success (“conversion tracking”). This connection between Facebook and our website is established via the Facebook pixel. Your consent (GDPR Article 6(1)(1)(a)) is taken as the legal basis for the processing of your data.
12.2. Based on the marketing tools used, your browser will automatically create a direct link to the Facebook server when our website is visited. We have no influence over the scope or further use of the data collected as a result of the use of these tools by Facebook. We are therefore informing you of the processes known to us: by adding the Facebook pixel, Facebook is informed that you have visited the corresponding webpage on our internet site or have clicked on one of our advertisements. If you have a registered Facebook account, Facebook can assign the visit to your account. Even if you do not have a registered Facebook account or are not logged in to your account, there is a possibility that the provider will learn your IP address and other identifying features and will use these to build a profile.
12.3. The information collected will be saved on Facebook servers, including in the USA. By its own account, Facebook has adopted a measure for these cases which complies with the former EU-US Privacy Shield and has agreed to adhere to the applicable data protection laws with regard to international data transfer. We have also agreed standard contractual clauses with Facebook with the purpose of adhering to an appropriate level of data protection in third countries.
12.4. The revocation of your consent is possible at any time without affecting the permissibility of the processing up to the revocation. The easiest way to revoke your consent is via our Consent Manager. Users who are logged in can also object via the function of the provider under the following link: www.facebook.com/Setting/?tab=ads#_.
12.5. Further information on data processing by Facebook is available from Facebook Inc., 1601 California Ave, Palo Alto, California 94304, USA; data protection declaration www.facebook.com/about/privacy.
13.1. We have a presence on various social media platforms.
13.2. We rely on the technical platform and services of the respective providers for these information services. Please note that you use our presence on social media platforms and their functions at your own risk and responsibility. This applies in particular to the use of interactive functions (such as commenting, sharing and liking). When you visit our accounts on these platforms, the social media platform providers collect your IP address and other information, available in the form of cookies on your end device. This information is used to provide us as the account owner with statistical information about interaction with us.
13.3. The data collected about you in this context will be processed by the platform and possibly transferred to countries outside the European Union, in particular to the USA. All the aforementioned providers, according to information provided by them, maintain an appropriate level of data protection equivalent to the former EU-US Privacy Shield and we have agreed 'standard data protection clauses' with these companies. We do not know how the social media platforms will use the data from your visit to our accounts and interaction with our posts for their own purposes, how long this data will be stored or whether data will be passed on to third parties. Data processing can differ depending on whether you are registered with and logged in to the social network or whether you are visiting the site as an unregistered and/or non-logged-in user. When you access a post or the account, the IP address assigned to your end terminal will be sent to the social media platform provider. If you are currently logged in as a user, a cookie on your end device can track your Internet actions. Buttons incorporated into websites allow the platforms to track your visits to these websites and attribute them to your profile. Content or advertising can be tailored to you using this data. If you wish to avoid this, you should log off or disable the 'Stay logged on' function, delete the cookies on your device and restart your browser.
13.4. As the information services provider, any additional processing that we undertake is only of data from your use of our services that you provide and that requires interaction. For example, if you ask a question that we can only answer by e-mail, we will store your information in line with our general data processing principles as described in this data privacy statement. The legal basis for processing your data on social media platforms is Art. 6(1)(1)(f) GDPR.
13.5. You can contact us or the social media platform providers to exercise your rights as a data subject. If a party is not responsible for replying or the information needs to come from another party, we or the provider will forward your request to the respective partner. Please address any questions about the profiling and processing of your data when using the website directly to the social media platform operator. If you have questions about the processing of your interaction with us on our website, please write to us using the contact data specified above.
13.6. The respective providers describe what information the social media platforms receive and how this is used in their data privacy statements (for more service provider information, please see the respective applicable data privacy statements under https://www.linkedin.com/legal/privacy-policy, https://www.facebook.com/policy.php, https://privacycenter.instagram.com/policy. Here you will also find information about contact options and setting options for ads there.
