The following notes provide a simple overview of what happens to your personal data when you visit our website.
The responsible person within the meaning of the General Data Protection Regulation and other national data protection laws of the member states as well as other data protection regulations is the:
HYDROTEC Technologies AG
Düngstruper Straße 46

Fax: +49 4431 9355-99
We only process your personal data, such as your surname and first name, your e-mail address and IP address, etc., if there is a legal basis for doing so. The following regulations in particular come into consideration here according to the General Data Protection Regulation:
- 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a GDPR: The data subject has given consent to the processing of personal data relating to him or her for one or more specific purposes.
- 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. b GDPR: Processing is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is party or for the performance of pre-contractual measures taken at the request of the data subject.
- 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. c GDPR: Processing is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which the controller is subject.
- 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. d GDPR: Processing is necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person.
- 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. e GDPR: Processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller.
- 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f GDPR: Processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests of the controller or a third party, except where such interests are overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject which require the protection of personal data, in particular where the data subject is a child.
The transfer of personal data is also processing within the meaning of the previous point 3. However, we would like to inform you again separately here about the subject of transfer to third parties. The protection of your personal data is very important to us. For this reason, we are particularly careful when it comes to passing on your data to third parties.
We therefore only pass on data to third parties if there is a legal basis for the processing. For example, we share personal data with persons or companies that act as processors for us in accordance with Article 28 of the GDPR. A processor is anyone who processes personal data on our behalf - i.e. in particular in an instruction and control relationship with us.
In accordance with the requirements of the GDPR, we conclude a contract with each of our processors to oblige them to comply with data protection regulations and thus to provide comprehensive protection for your data.
We store all personal data that you transmit to us only for as long as it is needed to fulfil the purposes for which this data was transmitted or as long as this is required by law. Upon fulfilment of the purpose and/or expiry of the statutory storage periods, the data will be deleted or blocked by us.
In order to protect your data from unwanted access as comprehensively as possible, we take technical and organisational measures. We use an encryption process on our website. Your data is transferred from your computer to our server and vice versa via the internet using TLS encryption. You can recognise this by the fact that the lock symbol is closed in the status bar of your browser and the address line begins with https://.
We use session cookies on our website. The processing is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f GDPR and in the interest of optimising or enabling user guidance and adapting the presentation of our website.
When you access our website, the browser used on your end device automatically sends information to the server of our website. This information is temporarily stored in a so-called log file. In order to improve the quality of our website, the following information is therefore collected without your intervention and stored until it is automatically deleted:
- IP address of the requesting computer
- Date and time of access
- Name and URL of the retrieved file
- Website from which the access is made (referrer URL)
- The browser used and, if applicable, the operating system of your computer as well as the name of your access provider.
The processing is based on our legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. f GDPR for ensuring the stability and functionality of our website. This data cannot be assigned to specific persons. This data is not merged with other data sources. The data is not passed on or used in any other way.
If you send us enquiries via the contact form, your details from the enquiry form, including the contact details you provide there, will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the enquiry and in the event of follow-up questions. We do not pass on this data without your consent.
The legal basis for processing this data is our legitimate interest in processing your enquiry in accordance with Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. f GDPR. If your contact is aimed at concluding a contract, the legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. b GDPR. The processing of voluntary data entered in the contact form is based on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a GDPR). You can revoke this consent at any time. An informal communication by e-mail to us is sufficient for this purpose. The legality of the data processing operations carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
Your data will be deleted after your request has been processed, provided that there are no legal obligations to retain the data.
We inform our customers and business partners at regular intervals by means of a newsletter about special offers of our enterprise. In principle, the newsletter of our company can only be received by the data subject if the data subject has a valid e-mail address and the data subject registers to receive the newsletter. When registering for the newsletter, we also store the IP address of the computer system used by the data subject at the time of registration as well as the date and time of registration, which is assigned by the Internet service provider (ISP). The collection of this data is necessary in order to be able to trace the (possible) misuse of a data subject's email address at a later point in time and therefore serves as a legal safeguard for the controller, the legal basis for this is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f GDPR.
By activating the confirmation link sent via our website after registration, you give us your consent for the use of your personal data in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a GDPR. The personal data collected in the context of a registration for the newsletter will be used exclusively for sending our newsletter. Furthermore, subscribers to the newsletter could be informed by e-mail if this is necessary for the operation of the newsletter service or a related registration, as could be the case in the event of changes to the newsletter offer or changes in the technical circumstances. No personal data collected as part of the newsletter service will be passed on to third parties. The subscription to our newsletter can be cancelled by the data subject at any time. The consent to the storage of personal data, which the data subject has given us for the newsletter dispatch, can be revoked at any time. For the purpose of revoking consent, a corresponding link can be found in each newsletter.
This website uses the open source web analytics service Matomo provided by InnoCraft Ltd, 150 Willis St, 6011 Wellington, New Zealand, hereinafter "Matomo". Matomo uses technology that enables cross-page recognition of the user to analyse user behaviour by means of divice fingerprinting. The information collected by Matomo about the use of this website is stored on our server. The IP address is anonymised before storage. With the help of Matomo, we are able to collect and analyse data about the use of our website by website visitors. This enables us to find out, among other things, when which page views were made and from which region they come. We also collect various log files (e.g. IP address, referrer, browsers and operating systems used) and can measure whether our website visitors perform certain actions (e.g. clicks, purchases, etc.). The use of this analysis tool is based on your consent in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR.
We use IP anonymisation for the analysis with Matomo. This means that your IP address is shortened before analysis so that it can no longer be clearly assigned to you. We host Matomo exclusively on our own servers so that all analysis data remains with us and is not passed on.
On our website we use Google Maps (API) from Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland. Google Maps is a web service for displaying interactive maps in order to visually present geographical information. By using this service, you will be shown our location and it will be easier for you to find us.
When you call up those sub-pages in which the Google Maps map is integrated, information about your use of our website (such as your IP address) is transmitted to Google servers and stored there; this may also involve transmission to the servers of Google LLC. in the USA. This occurs regardless of whether Google provides a user account via which you are logged in or whether a user account exists. If you are logged in to Google, your data will be directly assigned to your account. If you do not wish to have your data associated with your Google profile, you must log out before activating the button. Google stores your data (even for users who are not logged in) as usage profiles and evaluates them.
Detailed information on data protection in connection with the use of Google Maps can be found at https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en&gl=de.
Your data is collected on the basis of your consent in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a DSGVO. The map will only be loaded once you have given your consent. You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future in the cookie settings.
When processing your personal data, the GDPR grants you as a website user certain rights:
(a) Right of access (Art. 15 GDPR).
You have the right to request confirmation as to whether personal data concerning you is being processed; if this is the case, you have a right to information about this personal data and to the information listed in detail in Art. 15 GDPR.
b) Right to rectification and erasure (Art. 16 and 17 GDPR)
You have the right to request without undue delay the rectification of any inaccurate personal data concerning you and, where applicable, the completion of any incomplete personal data.
You also have the right to request that personal data concerning you be deleted without delay, provided that one of the reasons listed in detail in Article 17 of the GDPR applies, e.g. if the data is no longer required for the purposes pursued.
c) Right to restriction of processing (Art. 18 GDPR)
You have the right to request the restriction of processing if one of the conditions listed in Art. 18 DSGVO applies, e.g. if you have objected to the processing pursuant to Art. 21 DSGVO, for the duration of any examination as to whether our legitimate interests outweigh yours.
d) Right to data portability (Art. 20 GDPR)
In certain cases, which are listed in detail in Art. 20 GDPR, you have the right to receive the personal data concerning you in a structured, common and machine-readable format or to request the transfer of this data to a third party.
e) Right to object (Art. 21 GDPR)
If data is collected on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f (data processing for the protection of legitimate interests), you have the right to object to the processing at any time for reasons arising from your particular situation. We will then no longer process the personal data unless there are demonstrably compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
f) Right to withdraw consent
You have the right to revoke your declaration of consent under data protection law at any time. The revocation of the consent does not affect the lawfulness of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until the revocation.
f) Right of appeal to a supervisory authority
Pursuant to Art. 77 GDPR, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority if you are of the opinion that the processing of data concerning you violates data protection regulations. The right of complaint can be asserted in particular before a supervisory authority in the member state of your place of residence, your place of work or the place of the alleged infringement.
