INCOATEC data protection information website

Please find here the data protection information in German.

Thank you for your interest in our company and your visit to our website. In the following, we would like to inform you about the handling of your data in accordance with Art. 13 of the German Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO).

Responsible for the data processing described below is the office named in the imprint.

Usage data
When you visit our websites, so-called usage data is temporarily analysed anonymously on our web server for statistical purposes as a protocol in order to improve the quality of our websites. This data record consists of

  • - the name and address of the requested content,
  • - the date and time of the request,
  • - the amount of data transferred,
  • - the access status (content transferred, content not found),
  • - the description of the web browser and operating system used,
  • - the referral link, which indicates the page from which you came to ours,
  • - the IP address of the requesting computer, which is shortened so that a personal reference can no longer be established.

Storage of the IP address for security purposes
When you visit our website, our web servers anonymously store the IP address assigned to you by your Internet provider or the IP address of the proxy server you use, as well as the web pages you visit on our site. This data is stored for a strictly specific purpose for a period of 7 days in the interest of recognising, limiting and eliminating attacks on our website. After this period, the IP address is deleted. The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f DSGVO.

Data security
In order to protect your data from unwanted access as comprehensively as possible, we take technical and organisational measures. We use an encryption procedure on our websites. Your data is transferred from your computer to our server and vice versa via the Internet using TLS encryption. You can usually 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://.

Required cookies
We use cookies on our website that are required to use the websites. We do not use these required cookies for analysis, tracking or advertising purposes.
Cookies are small text files that are stored on your terminal device and can be read. A distinction is made between session cookies, which are deleted as soon as you close your browser, and permanent cookies, which are stored beyond the individual session.
In some cases, these cookies only contain information about certain settings and are not personally identifiable. They may also be necessary to enable user guidance, security and implementation of the site. We use these cookies on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f DSGVO.

You can set your browser to inform you about the placement of cookies. This makes the use of cookies transparent for you. You can also delete cookies at any time via the corresponding browser setting and prevent the setting of new cookies. Please note that our websites may then not be displayed and some functions may no longer be technically available.

Social Plugins
We allow you to use social plugins. However, for reasons of data protection, we only integrate the social plugins we use in deactivated form. Therefore, when you visit our websites, no data is transmitted to social media services.
However, you have the option of activating and using the social plugins integrated on our websites. For this purpose, we use a solution that results in all data and functions required to display the social plugin being provided by our web server in a first step. Only when you decide to activate the respective social plugin and make the corresponding selection via the cookie banner, will a connection to the servers of the operator of the respective social media service be established by your browser in a second step. When you activate a plugin, the social media service receives in particular your IP address and, among other things, knowledge about your visit to our websites. This takes place regardless of whether you have an account with the respective social media service. If you are logged in, the data can be directly assigned to your social media profile.Overall, we have no influence on whether and to what extent the respective social media service processes personal data after activation. However, it is likely that the social media service will create usage profiles from your data and use them for the purpose of personalised advertising. In addition, your data will be used to inform other users of the social media service about your activities on our websites.
The embedding takes place on the basis of your consent via our banner if you have given your consent via our banner. Please note that embedding the social plugins may result in your data being processed outside the EU or EEA. In some countries, there is a risk that authorities may access the data for security and monitoring purposes without you being informed or having the right to appeal. Where we use providers in unsafe third countries and you consent, the transfer to an unsafe third country will be based on Article 49(1)(a) of the GDPR.
If you no longer wish your personal data to be processed by the activated social plugins, you can prevent future processing by no longer activating them. To do this, please change the settings on the Cookie-Banner.

LinkedIn (USA)
If you have activated the LinkedIn cookie via the cookie banner at the beginning of your visit to our website, the content will be reloaded immediately. If you do not wish such loading, please leave the settings on the banner deactivated. The content will then not be visible. An overview of the cookies used by LinkedIn can be found in the following table.
