Thank you very much for your interest in our company. Data protection has a particularly high priority for the management of Viscopic GmbH. As the data controller, we have implemented various technical and organisational measures to ensure the most complete protection of the personal data processed via this website possible. Nevertheless, Internet-based data transmissions may have security gaps, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, each data subject is free to transmit personal data to us by alternative means, such as telephone.
Below, we will inform you about the processing of your personal data by us and your claims and rights under the data protection law, especially the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
Personal data is any data that is personally attributable to you, e.g. name, address, e-mail addresses, user behaviour. Which data is processed in detail and how it is used depends largely on which of our services are used.
“Processing” means any operation or set of operations which is performed upon Personal Data, whether or not by automatic means, such as collection, recording, organization, structuring, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.
“Data Subject” means the identified or identifiable person to whom Personal Data relates.
“Restriction of processing” means the labelling of stored personal data with the aim of limiting its processing in the future.
“Profiling” means any form of automated processing of personal data consisting of the use of personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyse or predict aspects concerning that natural person’s performance at work, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behaviour, location or movements.
“Pseudonymisation” means the processing of personal data in such a manner that the personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without the use of additional information, provided that such additional information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organisational measures to ensure that the personal data are not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.
“Data Controller” means the natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which, alone or jointly with others, determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data; where the purposes and means of such processing are determined by European Union or Member State law, the controller or the specific criteria for its nomination may be provided for by European Union or Member State law.
“Data Processor” means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which processes personal data on behalf of the controller.
“Recipient” means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or another body, to which the personal data is disclosed, whether a third party or not. However, public authorities which may receive personal data in the framework of a particular inquiry in accordance with Union or Member State law shall not be regarded as recipients; the processing of this data by those public authorities shall be in compliance with the applicable data protection rules according to the purposes of the processing
“Third party” means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or body other than the data subject, controller, processor and persons who, under the direct authority of the controller or processor, are authorised to process personal data
“Consent” of the data subject means any freely given, specific, informed and unambiguous indication of the data subject’s wishes by which he or she, by a statement or by a clear affirmative action, signifies agreement to the processing of personal data relating to him or her.

In individual cases, we process your personal data for direct marketing purposes. You have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning you for the purposes of such marketing; this also applies to profiling insofar as it is associated with such direct marketing.

Cookies are information transmitted from our web server to the users’ web browsers, where they are stored for later retrieval. Cookies are small files or other types of information storage. Cookies are used for security purposes or for the operation of our Website (e.g. for the optimal display of the website on different terminals).
We use “session cookies”, which are stored only for the duration of the current visit to our Website and are an enabling factor for the use of our Website in the first place. A randomly generated unique identification number, a so-called session ID, is stored in a session cookie. A cookie also contains information about its origin and the retention period. Session cookies are deleted at the latest when you have finished using our Website and close the browser.
If you do not want cookies to be stored on your computer, you may disable the corresponding option in your browser’s system settings. Stored cookies may be deleted in the browser’s system settings. Please note that disabling cookies may limit the functionality of this Website.
With the following details we hereby inform you about our newsletter and the registration, dispatch and evaluation procedure and inform you about your rights of objection. If you subscribe to our newsletter, you agree to receive the newsletter and to the procedures described.
Newsletter content: We send newsletters, e-mails and other electronic notifications containing offers of the company and promotional information (hereinafter “newsletters”) only with the consent of the recipients or based on legal permission.
Double-Opt-In: The registration to our newsletter takes place in the so-called Double-Opt-In-Procedure. That means after registration for the newsletter we will send you an e-mail asking you to confirm your registration. This confirmation serves to ensure that only people who have access to the e-mail address provided register for our newsletter. We log the registrations for the newsletter in order to be able to prove the registration process according to the legal requirements. This includes the storage of the login and confirmation time, as well as the IP address. The changes to your data stored with the newsletter service provider will also be logged.
The newsletters contain a so-called web beacon, which is a pixel-sized file that is retrieved. Within the scope of this retrieval, technical information, such as information about the browser and your system, as well as your IP address and time of retrieval are initially collected. This information is used to technically improve the services based on the technical data or the target groups and their reading behaviour based on their retrieval locations (which can be determined using the IP address) or access times. The statistical surveys also involve determining whether the newsletters are opened, when they are opened, and which links are clicked. For technical reasons, this information can be assigned to the individual newsletter recipients. However, it is not our intention to observe individual users. The evaluations serve us to recognize the reading habits of our users and to adapt our content to them or to send different content according to the interests of our users.
The personal data collected as part of the newsletter service will not be passed on to third parties.
You can unsubscribe from our newsletter at any time, which means that you withdraw your consent. You will find a link to cancel the newsletter at the end of each newsletter. It is also possible at any time to unsubscribe from the newsletter dispatch directly on the website of the data controller or to inform the data controller of this in any other way. If you unsubscribe from the newsletter, Viscopic GmbH automatically declares your request to be revoked.
12. Subscription of comments in the blog on the website
Comments posted on the Viscopic GmbH blog can be subscribed to by third parties. In particular, it is possible for a commentator to subscribe to the comments following his comment on a specific blog post.
If a data subject chooses the option to subscribe to comments, the data controller will send an automatic confirmation e-mail to check in a double opt-in process whether the owner of the e-mail address specified has opted for this option. The option to subscribe to comments can be cancelled at any time.
13. Applications and the application process
The data controller collects and processes the personal data of applicants for the purpose of processing the application procedure. Processing may also be carried out electronically. This is particularly the case if an applicant submits the relevant application documents electronically, for example by e-mail or via a web form on the website, to the data controller. If the data controller concludes an employment contract with an applicant, the data transmitted shall be stored for the purpose of processing the employment relationship in compliance with the statutory provisions. If the controller does not conclude a contract of employment with the applicant, the application documents shall be automatically deleted two months after notification of the rejection decision, unless deletion conflicts with any other legitimate interests of the controller. Other legitimate interests in this sense include, for example, a duty to provide evidence in proceedings under the General Equal Treatment Act (Allgemeines Gleichbehandlungsgesetz – AGG).
14. Google Analytics
Google is certified under the EU-US Privacy Shield Agreement and therefore guarantees compliance with European data protection law (https://www.privacyshield.gov).
Google uses such data on our behalf to evaluate the use of our Website by our users, to compile reports on the activities on this Website and to provide us with further services related to the use of this Website. The processed data can be used to generate pseudonymous usage profiles.
We use Google Analytics with activated IP anonymization. This means that the users’ IP address is shortened by Google within the States that are party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. The full IP address is sent to a Google server in the USA and shortened there in exceptional cases only.
The IP address transmitted by the user’s browser is not merged with other data provided by Google. Users may prevent the storage of cookies by setting their browser software accordingly; in addition, users may also prevent the collection of the data generated by the cookie and its transfer to Google as well as the processing of such data by Google, by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.
For more information about data processing by Google, settings and options to object, please visit the websites of Google at: https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/ or http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html.
15. AdWords & Remarketing-Services Google
Based on our legitimate interests, i.e. our interest in the analysis and optimisation of our website within the meaning of Art. 6 Para. 1(f) GDPR, we use the remarketing services (“Google Remarketing Services”) of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”).
Remarketing is when a user is shown ads for products or other services that he or she is interested in on other websites. Ideally, users will only be presented with ads that match their potential interests. The Google Remarketing Services allow us to technically implement this and to display advertisements for our website or products and services on other websites in a more targeted manner.
User data is processed pseudonymously within the framework of Google Remarketing Services. This means that Google does not process personal data such as usernames or e-mail addresses, but only cookie-related data within pseudonymous user profiles. In this respect, from Google’s point of view, the data is not administered and displayed for a specifically identified person, but only for the device on which the respective cookies are stored. If a user has expressly permitted Google to process the data without pseudonymisation, the above shall not apply. The collected data will then be transmitted to Google and stored on Google servers in the USA.
We use the online advertising program “Google AdWords” for remarketing. Here, a dedicated “conversion cookie” is set for every Google AdWords customer, including us. The information collected with the help of this cookie is used to create conversion statistics for us as AdWords customers. This tells us the total number of users who clicked on our ads and were directed to our page with a conversion tracking tag. However, we do not receive any personally identifiable information.
The data subject concerned can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time, as described above, by means of an appropriate setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent Google from setting a conversion cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. In addition, a cookie already set by Google AdWords can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs.
Furthermore, the data subject concerned may object to the interest-related advertising by Google. To do this, the data subject must access the link www.google.de/settings/ads from any of the Internet browsers he or she uses and make the desired settings there.
Further information on data processing by Google, on the settings and opposition possibilities can be found on Google websites under: https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/.
16. Our social media presence
On our website, we use third-party services as part of our legitimate interests within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR, i.e. our interest in an optimal Website. The user’s IP address is transmitted to such third-party providers. The IP address is technically required for the contents to be displayed. Third party providers may use so-called web pixels (invisible graphics, also referred to as “web beacons”) for evaluation or marketing purposes. The web pixels can be used to evaluate information, such as the traffic of the Website. The third parties may store information in cookies on users’ devices.
We use the following third-party providers on our website:
YouTube is an Internet video portal that allows video publishers to post video clips and other users to view, rate and comment on them free of charge.

LinkedIn always receives information through the LinkedIn component that the data subject has visited our website if the data subject is logged in to LinkedIn at the same time as accessing our website. This occurs regardless of whether the data subject clicks on the LinkedIn component or not. If the data subject does not want LinkedIn to receive such information, he or she can prevent the transmission by logging out of his or her LinkedIn account before accessing our website.
Furthermore, we include functions of LinkedIn SlideShare (LinkedIn Corporation, 2029 Stierlin Court Mountain View, CA 94043, USA). SlideShare is a file hosting service that enables you to exchange and archive presentations and other documents such as PDF files, videos and webinars. The file hosting service allows users to upload media content in all popular formats, with the documents either made publicly available or marked privately. LinkedIn SlideShare provides so-called embed codes for the media content stored there (presentations, PDF files, videos, photos, etc.). Embed codes are program codes that are embedded in Internet pages with the aim of displaying external content on the user’s own Internet page. Embed codes make it possible to reproduce content on one’s own website without storing it on one’s own server and in doing so possibly violate the reproduction right of the respective author of the content. A further advantage of using an embed code is that the respective operator of an Internet page does not use its own storage space and its own server is thus relieved. An embed code can be integrated at any point on another website, so that an external content can also be inserted within one’s own text. The purpose of using LinkedIn SlideShare is to take the load off our server and to avoid copyright infringements when using third-party.
Each time you access our website, which is equipped with a SlideShare component (embed codes), this component causes the browser you are using to download embedded data from SlideShare. As part of this technical process, LinkedIn obtains information as to which specific subpage of our website is visited by the data subject.
If the data subject is logged in to SlideShare at the same time, SlideShare recognizes which specific subpage the data subject is visiting each time the data subject accesses our website and for the entire duration of that person’s stay on our website.
