Collax GmbH is respectful of data privacy and adopts best practice in compliance with applicable privacy law and regulations, including the EU General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”).
Collection and processing of personal data
As a standard, you can visit our pages without us requiring any personal data from you. You do not have to provide us with any personal information if you simply want to inform yourself on our website. However, if you wish to make use of some of our services, we will need some of your personal data in order to process your request properly. You will be expressly informed of this data collection within the framework of your registration. By using the respective services you give your consent to collect, process and use your personal data for the purposes stated here.
Use of website analysis tools
Collax GmbH is constantly striving to improve its website and therefore uses the analysis tool Google Analytics. This website uses functions of the web analysis service Google Analytics. The provider is Google Inc. 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”. These are text files that 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.
By using our website, you agree to the processing of the data collected about you in the manner and for the purposes described above. You can prevent the collection by Google Analytics by clicking on the following link. An opt-out cookie is set to prevent future collection of your data when you visit this website:
Use and disclosure of personal data and earmarking
All personal data arising in the context of our services will be collected, processed and used in accordance with the applicable regulations for the protection of personal data only for the purpose of processing inquiries or contracts and for safeguarding justified own business interests as well as for advertising for own purposes vis-à-vis the user. In addition, data is only collected, processed and used with the user’s consent. The user can object to the use of the data for advertising purposes by notifying Collax GmbH accordingly.
In particular, personal data will not be distributed, passed on, lent or sold to companies or organizations that are not part of the organizational structure of Collax GmbH. In the event that third parties are called in for administrative services, such as credit card processing, these services will only be purchased on condition that all personal information is treated strictly confidentially and used exclusively in the interest of Collax GmbH.
Collax GmbH may, however, disclose personal information if this is required by law or required by an authority. This is also the case if we have reason to believe that our website has been violated or misused. In such cases, we reserve the right to disclose the necessary personal information or information required by the authorities.
General statistical and non-personal information, such as the number of visitors to our website and the use of certain features or services, may be disclosed to third parties who work for us, e.g. for the purpose of advertising our website.
Upon request, we will delete your data completely and immediately after completion of all commercial business transactions. In this context, however, please note that Collax GmbH must comply with its legal obligations and observe commercial storage obligations and periods. Upon request, the customer will be notified of any deletion. Please contact us:
Accordingly, copying or using texts, photos, graphic elements, features or technologies for the purpose of personal enrichment, commercial purposes or for an inappropriate or illegal activity is not permitted. This also includes the use of material or technologies for private interests or activities which could harm Collax GmbH, are not in its interest or have nothing to do with its work.
Sending or downloading material that you do not own or for which you do not have permission to use is not permitted and may constitute a violation of the law. The violation of copyrights, trademark rights or other property rights may result in consequences under civil or criminal law. The above also includes sending or storing information on our website that violates the law or the rights of third parties (in particular copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, data protection and confidentiality).
If other Internet pages and/or services are accessible via our website, these may have their own data protection guidelines over which we have no control. Therefore, we cannot assume any responsibility or liability for their availability, nor can we recommend or assume any other responsibility or liability for content, advertisements, products or other material available on or through such websites or resources. Furthermore, we assume no direct or indirect responsibility or liability for damage or loss caused or allegedly caused by or in connection with the use or reliance on such content, goods or services available through externally linked websites or resources.
Right to Information
If you have any questions regarding the processing of your personal data, you can contact our office. We are also at your disposal for requests for information, applications or complaints. On request, we will inform you in writing in accordance with applicable law whether and which personal data about you we have stored.
Our website uses protected programs (plug-ins) of the social network Facebook. These are operated exclusively by Facebook Inc, 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (Facebook). The plug-ins are identified by the Facebook logo or the addition “I like” on our website. You will find the button “Connect to Facebook?” on our website. Only if you click the “Connect to Facebook?” button, the “I like it” button appears.
If you click the button “Connect to Facebook?”, the activated Facebook plug-in creates a direct connection between your browser and the Facebook servers. This forwards the information that you have visited our website to Facebook. Since this transmission is direct, we do not receive any knowledge of the transmitted data. If you are logged in to Facebook through your personal account while visiting our site, Facebook may associate your visit to the site with that account. By interacting with plug-ins, e.g. by clicking the “I like” button or leaving a comment, this information is transmitted directly to Facebook and stored there.
If you wish to prevent such data transmission, we recommend that you do not click on the “Connect to Facebook” button, or only if you log out of your Facebook account before visiting our website.
The purpose and scope of data collection by Facebook as well as the further processing and use of your data there and your rights and setting options for the protection of your privacy can be found in the data protection information of Facebook (https://de-de.facebook.com/privacy/explanation.php).
