a) When visiting the website

When you visit our website https://grobmeier.solutions/de/, the browser used on your device automatically sends information to the server of our website. This information is temporarily stored in a so-called log file. The following information will be collected without your intervention and stored until automated deletion:

  • IP address of the requesting computer,
  • date and time of access,
  • name and URL of the retrieved file,
  • website from which access is made (referrer URL),

The data mentioned are processed by us for the following purposes:

  • for further administrative purposes.

The legal basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f DSGVO. Our legitimate interest follows from the data collection purposes listed above. In no case we use the collected data for the purpose of drawing conclusions about you. In addition, we use cookies and analysis services when visiting our website.

If, pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a DSGVO have expressly consented, we use your e-mail address to regularly send you our newsletter. For the receipt of the newsletter the indication of an e-mail address is sufficient.

We inform our customers and business partners at regular intervals through newsletters about news and offers from Gobmeier Solutions.

The newsletter of our company can only be received if (1) the data subject has a valid e-mail address and (2) the person concerned registers for the newsletter. For legal reasons, a confirmation e-mail will be sent to the e-mail address entered by an affected person for the first time for newsletter mailing using the double-opt-in procedure. This confirmation email is used to check whether the owner of the e-mail address as the person concerned authorized the receipt of the newsletter. When subscribing to the newsletter, we also store the IP address of the computer system used by the person concerned at the time of registration, as well as the date and time of registration, as assigned by the Internet Service Provider (ISP). The collection of this data is necessary in order to understand the (possible) misuse of an affected person's e-mail address at a later date and therefore serves as legal safeguards for the controller.

The personal data collected in the context of registering for the newsletter will be used exclusively to send our newsletter. Subscribers to the newsletter may also be notified by e-mail if this is necessary for the operation of the newsletter service or registration, as might be the case in the event of changes to the newsletter or technical changes. There will be no transfer of the personal data collected as part of the newsletter service to third parties. Subscription to our newsletter may be terminated by the person concerned at any time. The consent to the storage of personal data that the data subject has given us for the newsletter dispatch can be revoked at any time. For the purpose of revoking the consent, there is a corresponding link in each newsletter. It is also possible to unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time, directly on the controller's website, or to inform the controller in a different way

A transfer of your personal data to third parties for purposes other than those listed below does not take place. We only share your personal information with third parties if:

 - You your according to Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a DSGVO have given express consent to this  - disclosure pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f DSGVO is required to assert, exercise or defend legal claims and there is no reason to assume that you have a predominantly legitimate interest in not disclosing your data,  - in the event that disclosure pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. c DSGVO is a legal obligation, as well  - as permitted by law and according to Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. b DSGVO is required for the settlement of contractual relationships with you.

4. External service providers

Grobmeier Solutions uses the following external service providers who help to optimize the service. Insofar as these service providers process data on behalf of Grobmeier Solutions, agreements have been concluded with them which set the European data protection standards as binding and in particular prohibit the use of the data for other purposes. If we commission third parties to process data on the basis of a so-called "contract processing contract", this is done on the basis of Art. 28 GDPR.

(a) MailChimp - newsletter delivery + success measurement

Grobmeier Solutions uses the MailChimp service, 512 Means St. Suite 404, Atlanta, GA 30318, USA, to send the newsletter. This service allows Grobmeier Solutions to manage a database of email contacts internally to communicate with users via email.

The service manages data on which date and time emails were read, as well as when the user interacted with incoming emails, for example by clicking on links contained in the email. This is done by so-called web beacons, also called tracking pixels. These are small image files that allow an evaluation of user behavior. The user can object to this tracking at any time by unsubscribing from the newsletter. Such an evaluation is not possible even if the user has disabled the display of images in his email program by default. However, in this case, the newsletter can not be fully displayed and the user may not be able to fully use all features.

(b) Amazon Web Services:- Hosting

Grobmeier Solutions uses the Amazon Web Services ("AWS") service of Amazon Web Services, Inc., P.O., for hosting the database and web content. Box 81226, Seattle, WA 98108-1226, USA. The data is stored exclusively in a German data center (Frankfurt / Main), which is certified to ISO 27001, 27017 and 2018 as well as PCI DSS Level 1. Of course, we have tight access rights and the data is automatically encrypted.   AWS has joined the so-called Privacy Shield Agreement as a company.

DSGVO the commenting service DISQUS offered by DISQUS, Inc., 301 Howard St, Floor 3 San Francisco, California 94105, USA.

To use the DISQUS comment feature, users can log in using their own DISQUS user account or existing social media accounts (e.g., OpenID, Facebook, Twitter, or Google).

5. Social Media Plug-ins

We rely on our website on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f DSGVO social plug-ins from the social networks Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to make our company better known. The underlying commercial purpose is to be regarded as a legitimate interest within the meaning of the GDPR. Responsibility for the operation compliant with data protection is to be guaranteed by their respective providers. The integration of these plug-ins by us is done by means of the so-called two-click method to protect visitors to our website in the best possible way.

a) Twitter

On our website plugins of the short message network of Twitter Inc. (Twitter) are integrated. The Twitter plugins (tweet button) can be recognized by the Twitter logo on our site. An overview of tweet buttons can be found here (https://about.twitter.com/resources/buttons). When you visit a page of our website that contains such a plugin, a direct connection is established between your browser and the Twitter server. Twitter receives the information that you have visited our site with your IP address. If you click on the Twitter "tweet button" while logged in to your Twitter account, you can link the contents of our pages to your Twitter profile. This allows Twitter to associate your visit to our pages with your user account. We point out that we as the provider of the pages are not aware of the content of the transmitted data and their use by Twitter. If you do not want Twitter to associate your visit to our pages, please log out of your Twitter account. More information can be found in the privacy policy of Twitter (https://twitter.com/privacy).

On our website we have integrated components from YouTube. YouTube is an internet video portal that allows video publishers to freely watch video clips and other users for free viewing, rating and commenting. YouTube allows the publication of all types of videos, so that both complete film and television broadcasts, but also music videos, trailers or user-made videos via the Internet portal are available.

YouTube's operating company is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. YouTube, LLC is a subsidiary of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

Each visit to one of the pages of this site operated by the controller and incorporating a YouTube component (YouTube video) will automatically cause the Internet browser on the subject's information technology system to be represented by the respective YouTube component to download an illustration of the corresponding YouTube component from YouTube. More information about YouTube can be found at https://www.youtube.com/yt/about/en/. As part of this technical process, YouTube and Google are aware of the specific bottom of our site visited by the person concerned. If the data subject is logged in to YouTube at the same time, YouTube recognizes by calling a sub-page containing a YouTube video, which specific bottom of our website the affected person visits. This information is collected by YouTube and Google and associated with the individual YouTube account.

YouTube and Google will always receive information through the YouTube component that the data subject has visited our website if the data subject is simultaneously logged into YouTube at the time of access to our website; this happens regardless of whether the person clicks on a YouTube video or not. If such transmission of this information to YouTube and Google is not wanted by the data subject, it can prevent the transmission by logging out of their YouTube account before calling our website.

YouTube's privacy policy, available at https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/, identifies the collection, processing, and use of personally identifiable information by YouTube and Google.
