Cookie Tool Cookiebot

This website uses a cookie tool cookiebot with technology of Cybot A/S, Havnegade 39, 1058 Copenhagen, Denmark (hereinafter referred to as “cookiebot”) to obtain effective user consents for cookies requiring approval and cookie-based applications. By incorporating an appropriate JavaScript code, users are shown a banner when they visit a site in which they can grant their consent to certain cookies and/or cookie-based applications by setting checkmarks, whereby the cookiebot blocks setting of all cookies requiring approval until the respective user has granted appropriate consents by setting a checkmark. This ensures that such cookies are only set on the user’s respective terminating device when consent has been granted. In order for the cookiebot to be able to assign site accesses clearly to individual users and to individually collect, record and store the consent settings made by the user for the duration of a session, the cookiebot collects certain information (including the IP address) which it transfers and stores on servers of Cybot A/S when our website is called.

These data transactions take place in accordance with Art. 6 Par. 1 lit. f GDPR based on our vested interest in a user-specific and user-friendly consent management for cookies in conformity with the law and hence a legally conformant design of our website. The further legal basis for the described data transactions is Art. 6 Par. 1 lit. c GDPR. We, as the responsible party, are legally obliged to make the use of unnecessary cookies dependent on the respective user consent.

Further information on how Cybot A/S uses data can be found in the Cookiebot data privacy policy under:

This means that we will not send you an email newsletter unless you have expressly confirmed to us that you agree to receiving the newsletter. We will then send you a confirmation email asking you to confirm that you wish to receive future newsletters by clicking on the corresponding link.

By activating the confirmation link you give us your consent to the use of your personal data in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 (a) GDPR. When you subscribe to the newsletter, we store your IP address entered by the internet service provider (ISP) as well as the date and time of subscription so that we can trace any possible misuse of your email address at a later time.

The data you enter for the purpose of receiving the newsletter (e.g. email address) is stored on Inxmail's servers in the EU. Inxmail uses this information to send and statistically evaluate the newsletters on our behalf. For the evaluation, the emails sent contain so-called web beacons or trackins pixels, which are single-pixel image files stored on our website. This makes it possible to determine whether a newsletter message has been opened and which links, if any, have been clicked on. In addition, technical information is recorded (e.g. time of retrieval. IP address, browser type and operating system). The data is collected exclusively pseudonymously and is not linked to your other personal data, a direct personal reference is excluded. This data is used exclusively for the statistical analysis of newsletter campaigns. The results of these analyses can be used to better adapt future newsletters to the interests of the recipients. If you wish to object to the data analysis for statistical evaluation purposes, you must unsubscribe from the newsletter.

Contractual agreements (order processing agreement) with subcontractors are designed by REINER SCT to comply with the provisions of the GDPR: The subcontractor is obligated to protect our customers' data and not to disclose it to third parties.

Social Media Use: Videos

   

Use of Youtube Videos

This website uses the YouTube embedding function for display and playback of videos offered by the provider YouTube, which belongs to Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland ("Google").

To this end, the extended data protection mode is used to ensure, according to provider information, that user information will only be stored once the playback function of the video(s) is started. When the playback of embedded YouTube videos is started, the provider sets "YouTube" cookies in order to collect information about user behavior.

According to indications from YouTube, the use of those cookies is intended, among other things, to record video statistics, to improve user-friendliness and to avoid improper actions. If you are logged in to Google, your information will be directly associated with your account when you click on a video. If you do not wish to be associated with your profile on YouTube, you must log out before activating the button. Google saves your data (even for users who are not logged in) as usage profiles and evaluates them. Such an evaluation takes place in particular according to Art. 6 Para. 1 (f) GDPR on the basis of the legitimate interests of Google in the insertion of personalized advertising, market research and/or demand-oriented design of its website. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, whereby you must contact YouTube to exercise this right.

When using YouTube, personal data may also be transmitted to the servers of Google LLC. in the USA. Regardless of whether the embedded video is played back, a connection to the Google network is established when visiting this website. This may trigger further data processing beyond our control.

For the transmission of data from the EU to the USA, Google relies on so-calles standard data protection clauses of the European Commission, which are intended to ensure compliance with the European data protection level in the USA.

Further information about Google can be found here:

Online-Marketing

   

Data Protection Declaration Facebook pixels for creating custom audiences with extended data matching feature

Within our online offer, the so-called "Facebook pixel" of the social network Facebook in extended data matching mode is applied. It is operated by Facebook Ireland Limited, 4 Grand Canal Quare, Dublin 2, Ireland (hereinafter "Facebook").

If a user, who has given his explicit consent, clicks on an advertisement placed by us and played on Facebook, an addition is made to the URL of our linked page by Facebook pixels. This URL parameter is then entered into the user's browser via a cookie after it has been forwarded, which is set by our linked page itself. In addition, this cookie collects specific customer information, such as the email address that we collect on our Facebook-associated website during transactions such as purchases, account signups, or registrations (advanced data matching). The cookie is then read by Facebook Pixel and enables the data, including the specific customer data, to be forwarded to Facebook. With the help of the Facebook pixel with extended data matching feature, Facebook is able to determine visitors of our online offer as a target group for the presentation of ads (so-called "Facebook ads"). Accordingly, the Facebook pixel with extended data matching feature to display Facebook ads placed by us will be presented only to Facebook users who have shown an interest in our online offer or who demonstrate certain characteristics (e.g. interest in certain topics or products determined by means of the websites visited) which we transmit to Facebook (so-called "custom audiences").

When using Facebook pixels, we also want to ensure that our Facebook ads match the potential interest of users and are not annoying. This allows us to evaluate the effectiveness of Facebook ads for statistical and market research purposes by tracking whether users were forwarded to our website after clicking on a Facebook ad ("conversion"). Compared to the standard variant of Facebook Pixel, the extended data matching feature helps us better measure the effectiveness of our advertising campaigns by tracking more associated conversions.

All transmitted data is stored and processed by Facebook to enable a connection to the respective user profile and to allow Facebook to use the data for its own advertising purposes in accordance with the Facebook Data Usage Guidelines (https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/). The data may enable Facebook and its partners to place advertisements on and off Facebook.

These processes are subject to express consent in accordance with Art. 6 (1) point a GDPR.

Consent to the use of the Facebook pixel may only be given by users who are older than 13 years of age. If you are younger, please ask your parent or guardian for permission. The information generated by Facebook is usually transferred to a Facebook server and stored there. This may also result in transmission to the servers of Facebook Inc. in the USA.

You can revoke your consent at any time by disabling Facebook pixel tracking. To do this, you can set an opt-out cookie that disables Facebook pixel tracking by clicking on the link below:

disable Facebook pixels

This opt-out cookie only works in this browser and only for this domain. If you delete your cookies in this browser, you must click on the above link again.

Use of Google AdWords Conversion Tracking

This website uses the online advertising program "Google AdWords" and the conversion tracking within the framework of Google AdWords, operated by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 ESW5, Ireland ("Google"). We use the services of Google AdWords to draw attention to our attractive offers with the help of advertising media (so-called Google AdWords) on external websites. In relation to the data of the advertising campaigns, we can determine how successful the individual advertising campaigns are. In doing so, we pursue the interest of showing you content that is of interest to you, of making our website more engaging for you and of achieving a fair calculation of advertising costs.

The conversion tracking cookie is set when a user clicks on a Google AdWords ad placed by Google. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer system. These cookies typically expire after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. If the user visits certain pages on this site and the cookie has not expired, Google and we can recognize that the user clicked on the ad and was directed to that page. Each Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. As a result, cookies cannot be tracked through the websites of AdWords customers. The information collected from the conversion cookie is used to generate conversion statistics for AdWords customers who have opted for conversion tracking. Customers will know the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were directed to a page with a conversion tracking tag. However, they will not receive information that personally identifies users. If you do not wish to participate in the tracking program, you can refuse the use of this program by deactivating the Google conversion tracking cookie via your Internet browser through the user settings. You will then no longer be included in the conversion tracking statistics.

We use Google Ads on the basis of our legitimate interest in targeted advertising in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 (f) GDPR. When using Google Ads, personal data may also be transmitted to the servers of Google LLC. in the USA.

For the transmission of data from the EU to the USA, Google relies on so-calles standard data protection clauses of the European Commission, which are intended to ensure compliance with the European data protection level in the USA.

Google Ads Remarketing

Our website uses the functions of Google Ads Remarketing, which enable us to advertise our website in Google search results, as well as on third-party websites. The provider is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland ("Google"). To this end, Google places a cookie in the browser of your terminal device, which automatically uses a pseudonymous cookie ID on the basis of pages you visited to allow interest-based advertising. Processing is based on our legitimate interest in the optimal marketing of our website in accordance with Art. 6 (1) point f GDPR. Any additional processing will only take place if you have agreed with Google that your Google Internet and app browsing history will be linked to your Google Account and information from your Google Account will be used for personalized ads you view on the web. If you are logged in to Google while visiting our website, Google will use your data in connection with Google Analytics data to create and define target group lists for cross-device remarketing. To this end, Google temporarily links your personal data with Google Analytics data to create target groups. When using Google Ads, personal data may also be transmitted to the servers of Google LLC. in the USA. Details on the processing operations initiated and on Google's handling of data collected from websites can be found here:

https://policies.google.com/technologies/partner-sites?hl=en

Web Analytics Services

  

Google (Universal) Analytics with Google Signals

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House 4, Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland ("Google"). Google Analytics uses "cookies", which are text files placed on your computer to help analyze how you use the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website (including your truncated IP address) will usually be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the USA, where it may also be transmitted to servers of Google LLC. in the USA.

This website uses Google (Universal) Analytics exclusively with the extension "_anonymizeIp()", which ensures anonymization of the IP address by shortening it and excludes the possibility of direct personal reference. Through the extension, your IP address will be shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other signatory states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area before. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a server of Google LLC. in the USA and shortened there.

On our behalf, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on the website activities and to provide us with further services related to the use of the website and the Internet. The IP address transmitted by your browser within the framework of Google (Universal) Analytics is not combined with other Google data.

Via a special function called "Demographics", Google Analytics also enables the compilation of statistics with statements about the age, gender and interests of site visitors based on an evaluation of interest-related advertising and with the use of third-party information. This allows the definition and differentiation of user groups of the website for the purpose of target-group-optimized marketing measures. However, data sets collected via "Demographics" cannot be assigned to a specific person. Details on the processing operations initiated and on Google's handling of data collected from websites can be found here:

https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en&gl=en

All the processing described above, in particular the setting of Google Analytics cookies for reading information on the terminal device used, is only carried out if you have given us your express consent in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 letter a GDPR. Without this consent, the use of Google Analytics during your visit to our website will not take place. You can withdraw your consent at any time with effect for the future. To exercise your right of withdrawal of consent, please deactivate this service in the "Cookie-Consent-Tool" provided on the website. We have concluded a data processing agreement with Google for the use of Google Analytics, which obliges Google to protect the data of our site visitors and not to pass it on to third parties.

For the transmission of data from the EU to the USA, Google relies on so-called standard data protection clauses of the European Commission, which are intended to ensure compliance with the European data protection level in the USA. Further information about Google (Universal) Analytics can be found here:

https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en&gl=en

This website also uses the Google Signals service as an extension of Google Analytics. With Google Signals, we can have Google generate cross-device reports (so-called "cross device tracking"). If you have activated "personalized ads" in your settings in your Google Account and you have linked your Internet-capable devices to your Google Account, Google can analyze user behavior across devices and create database models based on this, provided that you have given the appropriate consent for the use of Google Analytics in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 letter a GDPR (see above). The registrations and device types of all visitors to the site who were logged into a Google account and have performed a conversion are taken into account. The data shows, among other things, on which device you clicked on a display for the first time and on which device the corresponding conversion took place. We do not receive any personal data from Google, but only statistics based on Google Signals. You have the option of deactivating the "personalized ads" function in the settings of your Google account and thus turn off the cross-device analysis. To do so, follow the instructions on this page:

https://support.google.com/ads/answer/2662922?hl=en

https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/7532985?hl=en

Google Analytics 4

This website uses Google Analytics 4, a service provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland ("Google"), which can be used to analyze the use of websites. When using Google Analytics 4, so-called "cookies" are used as standard. Cookies are text files that are stored on your terminal device and enable an analysis of your use of a website.

The information collected by cookies about your use of the website (including the IP address transmitted by your terminal device, shortened by the last digits, see below) is usually transmitted to a Google server and stored and processed there. This may also result in the transmission of information to the servers of Google LLC, a company based in the USA, where the information is further processed.

When using Google Analytics 4, the IP address transmitted by your terminal device when you use the website is always collected and processed by default and automatically only in an anonymized manner, so that a direct personal reference of the collected information is excluded. This automatic anonymization is carried out by shortening the IP address transmitted by your terminal device by Google within member states of the European Union (EU) or other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area (EEA) by the last digits.

On our behalf, Google uses this and other information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports (reports) on your website activities or your usage behavior and to provide us with other services related to your website usage and internet usage. In this context, the IP address transmitted and shortened by your terminal device within the scope of Google Analytics 4 will not be merged with other data from Google. The data collected in the context of the use of Google Analytics 4 will be retained for 2 months and then deleted.

Google Analytics 4 also enables the creation of statistics with statements about age, gender and interests of website users on the basis of an evaluation of interest-based advertising and with the involvement of third-party information via a special function, the so-called "demographic characteristics". This makes it possible to determine and distinguish user groups of the website for the purpose of targeting marketing measures. However, data collected via the "demographic characteristics" cannot be assigned to a specific person and thus not to you personally. This data collected via the "demographic characteristics" function is retained for two months and then deleted.

All processing described above, in particular the setting of Google Analytics cookies for the storage and reading of information on the terminal device used by you for the use of the website, will only take place if you have given us your express consent for this in accordance with Art. 6 (1) lit. a GDPR. Without your consent, Google Analytics 4 will not be used during your use of the website. You can revoke your consent once given at any time with effect for the future. To exercise your revocation, please deactivate this service via the "Cookie Consent Tool" provided on the website.

In connection with this website, the "UserIDs" function is also used as an extension of Google Analytics 4. By assigning individual UserIDs, we can have Google create cross-device reports (so-called "cross-device tracking"). This means that your usage behavior can also be analyzed across devices if you have given your corresponding consent to the use of Google Analytics 4 in accordance with Art. 6 (1) lit. a GDPR, if you have set up a personal account by registering on this website and are logged into your personal account on different end devices with your relevant login data. The data collected in this way shows, among other things, on which end device you clicked on an ad for the first time and on which end device the relevant conversion took place.

In connection with this website, the Google Signals service is also used as an extension of Google Analytics 4. With Google Signals, we can have Google create cross-device reports (so-called "cross-device tracking"). If you have activated "personalized ads" in your Google account settings and linked your Internet-enabled end devices to your Google account, Google can analyze usage behavior across devices and create database models based on this if you have given your consent to the use of Google Analytics 4 in accordance with Art. 6 (1) a GDPR. The logins and device types of all website users who were logged into a Google account and executed a conversion are taken into account. The data shows, among other things, on which device you clicked on an ad for the first time and on which device the relevant conversion took place. We do not receive any personal data from Google in this regard, but only statistics compiled on the basis of Google Signals. You have the option of deactivating the "personalized ads" function in the settings of your Google account and thus turning off the cross-device analysis in connection with Google Signals. To do this, follow the instructions on this page:

https://support.google.com/ads/answer/2662922?hl=en

You can find more information about Google Signals at the following link:

https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/7532985?hl=en

Our website features a separate section where we advertise open positions for which applicants can apply by sending an email to the provided address.

In order to be considered in the application process, applicants have to provide us, along with their email application, with all personal data required for a thorough and informed assessment and selection. The information required includes general personal information (name, address, phone or electronic contact information), any documents accompanying the application, such as cover letter and curriculum vitae, as well as performance-specific evidence of the qualifications required for the job. In addition, health-related information may be required, which in the interest of social protection must be given special consideration in the applicant's person under labor and social law.

The components that an application must contain in order to be considered and the form in which these components must be sent by email can be found in the respective job advertisement.

In addition, applicants may voluntarily provide us with additional information.

By submitting the application to us, applicants agree to the processing of their data for the purposes of the application process in accordance with the type and scope set out in this Privacy Statement.

Insofar as special categories of personal data pursuant to Art. 9 Para. 1 GDPR are voluntarily disclosed in the application process, they are additionally processed in accordance with Art. 9 Para. 2 (b) GDPR (e.g. health data, e.g. severely disabled status or ethnic origin). Insofar as special categories of personal data pursuant to Art. 9 Para. 1 GDPR are requested from applicants in the application process, they are additionally processed in accordance with Art. 9 para. 2 lit. a GDPR (e.g. health data, if these are required for exercising the profession).

Applicants can send their applications by post or email. Please note, however, that emails are generally not sent in encrypted form and that the applicants themselves must ensure that they are encrypted. We therefore cannot accept any responsibility for the transmission of the application between the sender and the reception on our server. If the applicant is concerned about the security of the application documents sent by email, we recommend sending the application documents by post.

The data provided by the applicants may be further processed by us in the event of a successful application for employment purposes. Otherwise, if the application for a job opening is not successful, the applicants' data will be deleted. Applicants' data will also be deleted if an application is withdrawn, which the applicants are entitled to at any time.

Specifically, these are the employees of the HR department of Reiner Kartengeräte GmbH & Co. KG, its management, and the respective division managers.

The deletion is subject to a legitimate withdrawal by the applicant and carried after a six-month application period so that we can answer any follow-up questions regarding the application and meet our obligations under the Equal Treatment Act.

In the event that you have agreed to the continued storage of your personal data, we will transfer your data to our applicant pool. There the data will be deleted after two years.

If you have been accepted for a job in the application process, the data from the applicant data system will be transferred to our personnel information system and deleted 10 years after termination of employment.

Invoices for any reimbursement of travel expenses are archived in accordance with tax regulations.

If your personal data are processed on the basis of legitimate interests pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 Sent. 1 (f) GDPR, you have the right to object to the processing of your personal data pursuant to Art. 21 GDPR, provided that there are reasons for this which arise from your particular situation or the objection is directed against direct advertising.
