Dealing with personal data / collection, processing and transmission of personal data

Personal data refers to individual information regarding personal or factual circumstances of a specific or identifiable natural person. This includes, for example, the name, address, e-mail address, telephone and fax number. Almost our entire website can be used without providing your personal data. Where it is necessary to provide personal data on our website for an enquiry, we leave it up to you to decide which personal data you would like to provide.

 

VITLAB collects and uses your personal data solely for the purpose for which you provide your data, e.g. to process requests for information, batch certificates, orders for brochures or samples. We may only transmit data to our local sales partners for processing your specific enquiry and after receiving your proper consent.

 

Your rights to information, correction, blocking, deletion, objection

You have the right to receive information about your personal data stored by us at any time, and this is free of charge. You also have the right to correct, block or delete your personal data.

 

For data blockage to be realized, this data must be stored in a lock file for control purposes. You can also request the deletion of this data, if we are not legally obliged to archive it. Personal data will be deleted when you revoke your consent to its storage, when having this personal data is no longer required to fulfill the purpose for which it was stored, or if its storage is inadmissible for other legal reasons. This does not affect data for business transactions that is needed for billing and accounting purposes or is subject to the legal obligation to keep records.

 

We adhere to the principles of data avoidance and data economy. We therefore only store your personal data for as long as is necessary to achieve the purposes stated here or as provided for in the various storage periods provided for by law. After expiry of these periods, the corresponding data will be blocked or deleted as a matter of routine and in accordance with statutory provisions.

 

You can make changes or revoke your consent by notifying us accordingly with effect for the future. To contact us in this context, please use the contact details provided at the end of this data protection declaration.

Web analytics by Matomo (formerly PIWIK)

When you visit our website, as a default, we store general technical data such as, e.g. the date and duration of your visit or the domain name of your Internet service provider, in order to be able to follow the preferences of visitors and optimally design the website accordingly. We use the Matomo/PIWIK web analysis service, which uses so-called cookies, to collect this data. These are text files that contain data about your visit to our website and are stored on your hard drive. Cookies allow you to navigate more easily and thus increase user-friendliness. Cookies also allow us to analyze the use of our website, such as the identification of particularly popular content. In this way, we can adapt our Internet offer to your needs as a user. The collected information for use (including your abbreviated IP address) is transmitted to our server and stored. Your IP address will be anonymized, so that the data cannot be assigned to an identifiable person, and the individual user remains anonymous. The collected data for use will not be passed on to third parties. Via your browser, you can switch off the acceptance of cookies at any time. However, please note that parts of our web pages may not be displayed optimally and may not function properly.

 

If you object to the storage and analysis of the aforementioned data, you can also object to this at any time by deactivating the checkbox at the end of this data privacy statement. By selecting the link, an opt-out cookie is stored in your browser, which suppresses the collection of data for use. However, if you delete the cookies on your computer, the opt-out cookie will also be deleted, and you may have to activate it again.

 

The data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer needed for our recording purposes.

 

In our case, this is done after 360 days.

 

You can decide here whether a unique web analysis cookie may be stored in your browser, which will enable us to collect and analyze various statistical data.

Campaign Monitor

This website uses Campaign Monitor to send newsletters. The provider is the Campaign Monitor Pty Ltd., Attn: Legal, 631 Howard St., 5th Floor, San Francisco, CA 94105, USA. Campaign Monitor is a service which can be used to organize and analyse newsletter delivery. The data you enter (for example, e-mail address) for the purposes of receiving a newsletter is stored on the Campaign Monitor servers in the United States.

 

Our newsletter which is sent with Campaign Monitor allows us to analyse the behaviour of newsletter recipients. This allows us to analyse, among other things, as to how many recipients have opened the newsletter message and how often which link in the newsletter was clicked. With the help of so-called conversion tracking, it is also possible to analyse whether a predefined action has taken place after clicking on the link in the newsletter.

Data processing is based on your consent (Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR). You can revoke this consent at any time by unsubscribing from the newsletter. The legality of the already completed data processing operations remains unaffected by the revocation.
