PRIVACY POLICY FOR WEBSITES

LIQVIS attaches great importance to the protection of personal data and is committed to protecting the data of people who visit our websites. LIQVIS GmbH, Huttropstraße 60, 45138 Essen, Germany, processes personal data collected during visits to our website in accordance with the laws on data protection and data security of the Federal Republic of Germany and is the data controller in this respect. This privacy policy tells you how LIQVIS handles information that is collected during your visit to the LIQVIS website.

This Privacy Policy applies to all websites that link to this Privacy Policy, including https://www.liqvis.com/ (collectively referred to as "LIQVIS websites" or "our websites").

Collection and processing of personal data

Personal data is all information about your identity, such as your name, your e-mail address or your postal address. Unless you have agreed otherwise with LIQVIS, LIQVIS only collects simple personal data that is necessary for our business relationship, such as your name, job title, address, telephone number, e-mail address and other contact details. Such data is only collected if you make it available to LIQVIS, e.g. if you order information material and use a contact form for this purpose or request this via e-mail, subscribe to an e-mail information service, apply for a job online via our applicant portal or participate in a survey or competition. LIQVIS only collects this data directly from you and not from other third parties. In this respect, the legal basis for the processing arises from Article 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. b) GDPR.

Use and disclosure of personal information

LIQVIS will use your personal data to respond to your inquiry, process your order or provide you access to special information or offers you have requested from us. For example, if you fill out an online contact form, LIQVIS will use this information to contact you regarding your interest in the Services. In this respect, the legal basis for the processing arises from Article 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. b) GDPR.

LIQVIS may also use personal data of its customers and data of participants for marketing purposes, if necessary, insofar as they have expressly consented to this in accordance with Article 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. a) GDPR. In this case, LIQVIS will use the information you provide to contact you to discuss your interest in the Services and to send you information about the company, its subsidiaries and affiliates, such as promotions or events. For this purpose it may also be necessary for LIQVIS to pass on your data to group companies or external service providers within the scope of commissioned data processing. For example, LIQVIS may need to share customer information for customer relationship management purposes.

If you have agreed to the processing of your personal data, you can revoke this agreement at any time with effect for the future. Revocation of consent shall not affect the lawfulness of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent.

LIQVIS will not sell or otherwise market your personal data to third parties or pass it on for their advertising purposes. Insofar as you have expressly consented to this in accordance with Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. a) GDPR, LIQVIS shall pass on your data to its subsidiaries and partner companies so that they can contact you directly. You have the right to revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future. This does not affect the lawfulness of the processing until revocation.

LIQVIS will only process your data within the European Union. Data transfers to third countries arise only in the context of the administration of IT systems in accordance with the rules on commissioned processing and only to the extent that a) the transfer is in principle permissible and b) the specific conditions for a transfer to a third country are met, in particular the data importer guarantees an adequate level of data protection in accordance with the EU standard contractual clauses for the transfer of personal data to processors in the context of commissioned processing in third countries.

Duration of storage

LIQVIS will only store your personal data for as long as it is necessary to provide the services or information you have requested and for the duration of our business relationship. In addition, we only store your data to the extent necessary to comply with statutory retention obligations or for the duration of legal disputes in order to protect our legitimate interests. We will delete your data immediately if they are no longer needed for the purposes mentioned.

Notes on web analysis

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. "( Google ). Google Analytics uses so-called "cookies", text files which are stored on your computer and which enable an analysis of your use of the website.

However, this will only be done if and insofar as you have given your express consent to this in accordance with Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. a) GDPR. If you have agreed to the processing of your personal data, you can revoke this agreement at any time with effect for the future. Revocation of consent shall not affect the lawfulness of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent.

The information generated by cookies about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on the website activities and to provide further services to the website operator in connection with the use of the website and the Internet. Google uses pseudonyms for this purpose. The IP address transmitted by your browser within the framework of Google Analytics is not merged with other data from Google.

Thunderhead

This website uses ONE, a web analytics service provided by Thunderhead, 5th Floor, Ingeni Building, 17 Broadwick Street, London W1F 0DJ. An ONE cookie is stored on your terminal device if and insofar as you have given your express consent under Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 a) GDPR. If you have agreed to the processing of your personal data, you can revoke this agreement at any time with effect for the future. Revocation of consent shall not affect the lawfulness of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent.

With regard to your user behavior, we store which of our websites you visit, how long you stay there, what you "click" or in which fields you enter data (so-called "Listening and Capturing"). This is to improve our website and our products and services as such, as we hope that this will give us an insight into what our customers or potential customers/users of our websites are interested in, what features they use and how they use them. The IP address is immediately anonymized when the data is recorded.

The following data is recorded: Device manufacturer, device model, device type (e.g. smartphone, tablet), name and version of the operating system, name and version of the browser used; location data (geo-coordinates) of the device and accuracy of the location data measured in meters; country and city from which the last known interaction with the ONE-Cookie took place; a time stamp of when the device first and last communicated with the ONE-Cookie and when geo-coordinates were last available.

If you no longer want the ONE cookie to collect and use the above information, you can of course set your browser to refuse cookies from a previous visit to the website or to prevent your browser from accepting cookies in the future. Furthermore, we expressly point out that the deletion or suppression of the acceptance of cookies is limited, as the browser setting only applies to the browser currently in use. When using a different or new browser, the browser settings must be adjusted again.

Of course, a cookie is only set after your expressly given consent.

If you have given your consent, the user behavior data collected by means of the Thunderhead cookie will be processed in a personalized manner by linking to your identity. The aim of creating your personal customer profile is to enable us to present you with content that is individually tailored to you and your interests and which we believe could be particularly helpful or interesting for you in your situation. Thunderhead does not receive any personal data. The legal basis for this data processing is Article 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. a) GDPR. The customer profile thus created will be stored until you revoke your consent with effect for the future or until our purposes in connection with the contractual relationship existing between us cease to apply. Revocation of consent shall not affect the lawfulness of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent. For further information, please refer to the data protection information on the contractual relationship between us.

Google Tag Manager

On this website the Google Tag Manager is used. The Google Tag Manager is a solution from Google Inc. that allows companies to manage website tags through a single interface. The Google Tag Manager is a cookie-less domain that does not collect personal information. The Google Tag Manager will trigger other tags that may collect data. We herewith point this out separately. The Google Tag Manager does not access this data. If deactivation has been made by the user at the domain or cookie level, it will remain in effect for all tracking tags implemented with Google Tag Manager.

Use of the IP address

Computers and devices connected to the Internet are assigned a unique number, called an IP address. Because these numbers are usually assigned in country-based blocks, an IP address can often be used to identify the country (state or city) where this computer connects to the Internet. Google Analytics records the IP addresses of website visitors. This allows the website owner to analyze from which parts of the world his visitors come. This method is called geotargeting of IP addresses.

The actual IP address information is not shared by Google Analytics with Google Analytics customers. The IP mask method is also used: Website owners using Google Analytics can set it so that instead of the entire IP address, only part of it is used for geotargeting. Website owners generally have access to the IP addresses of their website visitors, regardless of the use of Google Analytics.

Randomly selected visitors are asked whether they would like to participate in a user satisfaction survey. Whether you refuse or participate is stored in a permanent cookie so that you will not be shown this request again at a later date.

At no time is personal data stored in a cookie.
