Privacy Policy

Status: September 2019

  1. Introduction

    We would like to use the information below to provide you "data subject" with an overview of our processing of your personal data and your rights under data protection law. It is generally possible to use our website without entering personal data. However, if you wish to make use of special services offered by our company through our website, it may be necessary to process personal data. If it is necessary to process personal data and there is no legal basis for such processing, we will generally obtain your consent. Personal data, such as your name, address or email address, is always processed in accordance with the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and in accordance with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to the "CYNORA GmbH". The aim of this Privacy Notice is to inform you about the scope and purpose of the personal data we collect, use and process. As the data controller, we have implemented numerous technical and organisational measures to ensure the most complete possible protection of the personal data processed via this website. Nevertheless, as a rule, internet-based data transmissions may have security gaps, and we are unable to guarantee absolute protection. Because of this, you are free to send us personal data by alternative means, for example by telephone or post.

  4. Definitions

    This Privacy Notice uses terms based on those used by European lawmakers in adopting the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Our Privacy Notice should be easy for the public as well as our customers and business partners to read and understand. To ensure this is the case, we would like to explain the terms used in advance. We use the following terms in this Privacy Notice, among others:

    1. Personal data

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

    2. Data subject

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

    3. Processing

      Processing means any operation or set of operations which is performed on personal data or on sets of personal data, whether or not by 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.

    4. Restriction to processing

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

    5. Profiling

      Profiling means 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 performance at work, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behaviour, location or movements.

    6. Pseudonymisation

      Pseudonymisation is the processing of personal data in such a way that the data can no longer be assigned to a specific data subject without additional information being provided, given that such additional information is kept separate and subject to appropriate technical and organisational measures that ensure that personal data cannot be attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.

    7. Data processor

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

    8. Recipient

      Recipient means 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.

    9. Third parties

      Third party means 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.

    10. Consent

      Consent is any unambiguous voluntary declaration of consent given by the data subject for a specific case in an informed manner in the form of a statement or other action clearly confirming consent (ticking a box) with which the data subject indicates their agreement to their personal data being processed.

  5. Legal basis for processing

    Article 6 Paragraph 1(a) GDPR serves as our company’s legal basis for processing operations in which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are a party, as is the case, for example, with processing operations that are necessary for the delivery of goods or the provision of other services or consideration, processing is based on Article 6 Paragraph 1(b) GDPR. The same applies to those processing operations required to carry out pre-contractual measures, such as in cases of queries regarding our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation requiring the processing of personal data, such as for the fulfilment of tax obligations, processing is based on Article 6 Paragraph 1(c) GDPR. In rare cases, processing of personal data may be necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or of another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if someone visiting our business were to be injured and their name, age, health insurance data or other vital information needed to be disclosed to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Processing would then be based on Article 6 Paragraph 1(d) GDPR. Finally, processing operations could be based on Article 6 Paragraph 1(f) GDPR. Processing operations not based on any of the above-mentioned legal bases may be carried out on the basis of Article 6 Paragraph 1(f) GDPR if processing is necessary to safeguard the legitimate interests of our company or those of a third party, provided the interests and fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not take precedence. We are permitted to engage in such processing operations in particular because they have been specifically mentioned in European law. In this respect, the legislature took the view that a legitimate interest could be assumed if you are a customer of our company (Recital 47 Sentence 2 GDPR).

  6. Technology

    1. SSL/TLS encryption

      This site uses SSL or TLS encryption to ensure the security of data processing and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders, login details or contact requests that you send to us as the website operator. You can recognise an encrypted connection by your browser’s address bar reading "https://" instead of "http://" and the lock symbol in the browser bar. If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you send us cannot be read by third parties.

    2. Data collection when visiting the website

      If you only use our website for informational purposes, i.e. if you do not register or otherwise provide us with information, we only collect the data your browser sends our server (in what is known as "server log files"). Our website collects a range of general data and information each time you access a website or an automated system. This general data and information is stored in the server’s log files. The browser

      1. types and versions used,

      2. the operating system used by the accessing system,

      3. the website from which an accessing system accesses our website (called a referrer),

      4. the sub-pages accessed via an accessing system on our website,

      5. the date and time the website is accessed,

      6. an internet protocol address (IP address) and

      7. the accessing system's internet service provider may be collected./p>

      No conclusions are drawn about you when using this general data and information. Instead, this information is needed to

      1. properly deliver our website content,

      2. to optimise the content of the website as well as to advertise it,

      3. to ensure the continued functioning of our information technology systems and our website’s technology as well as to

      4. provide the information necessary for law enforcement authorities to prosecute in the event of a cyber attack.

      This collected data and information is therefore statistically analysed and further analysed by us with the aim of increasing data protection and data security within our company to ultimately ensure an optimum level of protection for the personal data being processed by us. The data from the server log files is stored separately from all personal data provided by a data subject. The legal basis for data processing is Article 6 Paragraph 1 Sentence 1(f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest is based on the purposes listed above for the collection of data.

  7. Cookies

    1. General information about cookies

      We use cookies on our website. Cookies are small files that are automatically created by your browser and stored on your IT system (laptop, tablet, smartphone, etc.) when you visit our website. Cookies do not harm your device and do not contain viruses, trojan horses or other malware. Information generated from the specific device used is stored in cookies. This does not mean, however, that we will gain immediate knowledge of your identity. The use of cookies helps us make it more convenient for you to use our website. For example, we use session cookies to detect whether you have already visited individual pages on our website. These are erased automatically when you leave our website. We also use temporary cookies to optimise user-friendliness. These cookies are stored on your device for a specific period of time. If you return to our website to use our services, cookies allow us to automatically recognise that you have visited our website previously and remember the inputs and settings you have made so that you do not have to enter them again. We also use cookies to statistically record the use of our website and analyse it for the purpose of optimising our services. These cookies allow us to automatically recognise that you have already visited our website when you visit our website again. These cookies are automatically erased after a defined period of time. The processing of data through cookies for the purposes stated above is necessary in order to safeguard our legitimate interests pursuant to Article 6 Paragraph 1 Sentence 1(f) GDPR. Most browsers automatically accept cookies. However, you can configure your browser so that no cookies are stored on your computer or so a message is always displayed before a new cookie is created. However, if you disable cookies completely, you may not be able to use all the features on our website.

    2. Cookie Opt-in

      In accordance with Article 6 Paragraph 1(a) GDPR, you have given your consent to this through our opt-in cookie banner.

    3. Cookies used by us

      1. Category: Necessary

        Necessary cookies help to make a website usable by enabling basic functions such as page navigation and access to secure areas of the website. The website cannot function properly without these cookies.

      2. Category: Statistics

        Statistic cookies help website owners to understand how visitors interact with websites by collecting and reporting information anonymously.

      3. Category: Marketing

  8. Contents of our website
    1. Contact/contact form

      Personal data is collected when you contact us (e.g. using our contact form or by email). If you use a contact form to get in touch with us, the contact form you use will indicate the data being collected. This data is stored and used exclusively for the purpose of responding to your query or establishing contact and the associated technical administration. The legal basis for data processing is our legitimate interest in responding to your request pursuant to Article 6 Paragraph 1(f)f GDPR. If the aim of you contacting us is to conclude a contract, processing is also legally based on Article 6 Paragraph 1(b) GDPR. Your data will be erased once we have finished processing your query. This is the case when it can be inferred from the circumstances that the relevant facts have been clarified in a conclusive manner and there are no statutory retention obligations in place that prevent its erasure.

    2. Application management/job exchange

      We collect and process the personal data of applicants for the purpose of carrying out the application process. Processing may also be carried out electronically. This is particularly the case if an applicant submits corresponding application documents to us electronically, for example by email or via a web form on the website. If we conclude an employment contract with an applicant, the data transmitted will be stored for the purpose of processing the employment relationship in compliance with the statutory provisions. If we do not conclude an employment contract with the applicant, the application documents will be automatically erased two (2) months after notification of the rejection decision, provided that no other legitimate interests of ours prevent their erasure. Other legitimate interests in this context include, for example, the duty to provide evidence in proceedings under the German Equal Treatment Act (Allgemeines Gleichbehandlungsgesetz [AGG]). The sole basis for the data processing is our legitimate interest in line with Article 6 Paragraph 1(f) GDPR.

  9. Newsletters
    1. Marketing newsletter

      You can subscribe to our newsletter via our website. The input screen determines which personal data are shared with us when subscribing to the newsletter.

      We use our newsletter to regularly communicate our offers to our customers and business partners. You can, therefore, only receive our company’s newsletter if

      1. you have a valid email address and

      2. have registered for the newsletter.

      For legal reasons, as part of the double opt-in procedure a confirmation email will be sent to the email address you provided when registering for the newsletter. This confirmation email is sent to check if you are the holder of the email address and have authorised the newsletter.

      When you register for the newsletter we also save the IP address used by your IT system at the time of registration, which is issued by your Internet Service Provider (ISP) as well as the date and time of registration. We must collect this data to investigate any (possible) misuse of your email address at a later stage and it is therefore lawful for the purposes of our security.

      The personal data collected during registration are used solely for sending our newsletter. Furthermore, subscribers to the newsletter may receive information via email if this is required in order to administer the newsletter service for registration purposes, which may be the case if our newsletter is amended or technical circumstances change. Personal data collected for our newsletter service are not shared with third parties. You may terminate your subscription to our newsletter at any time. You can at any time withdraw your consent to the storage of the personal data you shared during registration. A link is provided in each newsletter to allow you to withdraw your consent. It is also possible to unsubscribe from our newsletter directly through the website or to contact us in another manner.

      The legal basis for data processing for the purposes of sending a newsletter is article 6, paragraph 1 lit. a GDPR.

    2. Newsletter tracking

      Our newsletters contain what are known as tracking bugs. A tracking bug is a miniature graphic embedded in emails sent in HTML format to enable the recording and analysis of log files. This allows for a statistical analysis of the success or failure of online marketing campaigns. The embedded tracking bug allows the company to determine if and when an email was opened by you and what links you accessed in the email.

      We store and analyse the personal data collected via the tracking bug contained in the newsletters in order to optimise the sending of our newsletters and to adapt the content of future newsletters to even better suit your interests. This personal data will not be disclosed to third parties. Data subjects are entitled to revoke the relevant declaration of consent granted separately and submitted via the double opt-in procedure at any time. Once consent has been revoked, we erase this personal data. Unsubscribing from the newsletter will automatically be interpreted as revocation.

      This kind of analysis is carried out in particular in accordance with Article 6 Paragraph 1(f) GDPR on the basis of our legitimate interests in displaying personalised advertising, market research and/or the design of our website commensurate to market needs.

    3. CleverReach

      This website uses CleverReach to send newsletters. The provider is CleverReach GmbH & Co. KG, Mühlenstr. 43, 26180 Rastede. CleverReach is a service which enables the management and analysis of newsletters. The data you have provided for the newsletter (e.g. email address) are saved on CleverReach servers in Germany and/or Ireland. We can analyse the behaviour of newsletter recipients by sending newsletters through CleverReach. Examples of analyses include determining how many recipients have opened the newsletter email and how often they have clicked on certain links contained within the newsletter. Conversion Tracking can also be used to analyse if clicking on the link led to a pre-determined action (e.g. if a product was purchased on our website). For further information on the analysis of data by the CleverReach newsletter, please visit: https://www.cleverreach.com/en/features/reporting-tracking/. The legal basis for data processing is your consent (Article 6 Paragraph 1(a) GDPR). You can withdraw your consent at any time by unsubscribing from the newsletter. Withdrawal of consent does not affect the legality of data processing carried out previously. If you do not want CleverReach to perform the data analysis, you must unsubscribe from the newsletter. We provide a link for this in each newsletter. You can also unsubscribe from the newsletter directly on our website. We will store your personal data which we retain for the purposes of sending the newsletter until you are removed from the newsletter service and they will be deleted from our servers and the CleverReach servers after you have unsubscribed from the newsletter. Data we retain for other purposes (e.g. email addresses for the members’ area) shall remain unaffected. For further information, please refer to CleverReach’s privacy policy at: https://www.cleverreach.com/en/privacy-policy/.

  10. Our activities in social networks

    To allow us to communicate with you on social networks and inform you about our services, we run our own pages on these social networks. We are not the original provider (data controller) of these pages, but only use them within the scope of the options offered to us by the respective providers We would therefore like to point out as a precautionary measure that your data may also be processed outside of the European Union or the European Economic Area. Use of these networks may therefore involve data protection risks for you since the protection of your rights may be difficult, e.g. your rights to information, erasure, objection, etc. Processing on social networks frequently takes place directly for advertising purposes or for the analysis of user behaviour by network providers, and we have no control over this. If the provider creates user profiles, cookies are often used or user behaviour may be assigned directly to your own member profile on the respective social network (if you are logged in). The processing operations of personal data described are carried out in accordance with Article 6 Paragraph 1(f) GDPR on the basis of our legitimate interests and the legitimate interests of the respective provider in order to communicate with you in a timely manner or to inform you about our services. If you have to grant your consent to the respective providers to process your data as a user, the legal basis for this processing is Article 6 Paragraph 1(a) GDPR in conjunction with Article 7 GDPR. Since we have no access to these providers’ databases, we would like to point out that you would be best placed to exercise your rights (e.g. to information, rectification, erasure, etc.) directly with the respective provider. More information on the processing of your data on social networks and your options for exercising your right to object or your right of revocation (opt out) is listed below for each of the social network providers we use:

  11. Plugins and other services
    1. Google Maps

      We use Google Maps (API) on our website, provided through Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland. Google Maps is a web service for displaying interactive maps to visually display geographic information. For example, by using this service, you can view our location and make it easier for you to reach us. When you access sub-pages in which a Google Maps map is integrated, information about your use of our website (such as your IP address) is transferred to Google's servers in the US and stored there. This occurs regardless of whether Google provides a user account that you are logged in to or whether you have no user account with them at all. When you are logged in to Google, your information will be directly associated with your account. If you do not want your profile associated with Google, you will need to log out of your Google account. Google stores your data (even for users who are not logged in) as usage profiles and analysis it. This kind of analysis is carried out in particular in accordance with Article 6 Paragraph 1(f) GDPR on the basis of Google’s legitimate interests in displaying personalised advertising, market research and/or the design of its commensurate to market needs. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, and you must contact Google to exercise this right. Google Ireland Limited, headquartered in Ireland, is certified under the "Privacy Shield", a US-European data protection accord which ensures compliance with the data protection level applicable in the EU. If you do not agree with the future transmission of your data to Google as part of your use of Google Maps, you have the option of completely deactivating the Google Maps web service by switching off the JavaScript application in your browser. You will then be unable to use Google Maps and therefore the map displayed on this website. The use of Google Maps is in the interest of providing an appealing presentation of our online services and making it easy to find the places mentioned by us on the website. This constitutes a legitimate interest as defined by Article 6 Paragraph 1(f) GDPR. The Google terms of use can be found at https://www.google.com/policies/terms/regional.html, and the additional Google Maps terms of use can be found at https://www.google.com/help/terms_maps/. Detailed information on data protection with respect to the use of Google Maps is available on Google’s website ("Google Privacy Policy"): https://www.google.com/policies/privacy.

    2. Google Tag Manager

      This website uses Google Tag Manager, a cookie-free domain that does not collect personally identifiable information. With this tool, "website tags" (i.e. keywords that are integrated into HTML elements) can be implemented and managed via an interface. By using the Google Tag Manager, we can automatically track which button, link or customised image you have actively clicked and then record which content on our website is of particular interest to you. The tool also triggers other tags that may themselves collect data. Google Tag Manager does not access this data. If you have disabled it at the domain or cookie level, it will remain in place for all tracking tags implemented with Google Tag Manager. The use of Google Tag Manager is in the interests of simple, convenient use of our website. This constitutes a legitimate interest as defined by Article 6 Paragraph 1(f) GDPR.

    3. Google WebFonts

      Our website uses web fonts provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland for the uniform display of fonts. When you access a website, your browser loads the required web fonts into its browser cache in order to display texts and fonts correctly. To do this, the browser you are using must connect to Google's servers. This gives Google information that our website has been accessed via your IP address. The use of Google Web Fonts is in the interest of a uniform and appealing presentation of our website. This constitutes a legitimate interest as defined by Article 6 Paragraph 1(f) GDPR. Google Ireland Limited, headquartered in Ireland, is certified under the "Privacy Shield", a US-European data protection accord which ensures compliance with the data protection level applicable in the EU. More information about Google Web Fonts can be found at https://developers.google.com/fonts/faq and in Google's privacy policy: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/.

    4. Youtube (Videos)

      We have integrated YouTube components on this website. YouTube is an online video portal that allows video publishers to freely place video clips and allows other to view, rate and comment on videos free of charge. YouTube allows the publication of all types of videos. Both full film and television broadcasts as well as music videos, trailers and user-generated videos are available via the online portal. YouTube is operated by YouTube LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. YouTube, LLC is a subsidiary of Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.
