2. General notes and mandatory information
We would like to point out that the data transmission on the internet (e.g. in communication by e-mail) can have security loopholes. A complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.
Note to the responsible body
The responsible body for data processing on this website is:
IBG Industrie-Beteiligungs-Gesellschaft mbH & Co. KG
Telephone: +49 (0) 221 / 37 68 2-0
The responsible body is the natural or legal person who, alone or together with others, decides on the purpose and means of processing personal data (e.g. names, e-mail addresses etc.).
Revocation of your consent to data processing
Many data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. You may revoke your consent at any time. It is sufficient to send us an informal notification by e-mail. The legality of the data processing up to the point of the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
Right of appeal to the competent regulatory authorities
In the event of breaches of data protection legislation, the data subject shall have the right to lodge a complaint with the competent regulatory authority. The competent regulatory authority in data protection matters is the state data protection representative (Landesdatenschutzbeauftragte) of the federal state in which our company has its headquarters. A list of data protection representatives and their contact data can be seen via the following link: https://www.bfdi.bund.de/DE/Infothek/Anschriften_Links/anschriften_links-node.html.
Right to data portability
You have the right to have data that we have automatically processed on the basis of your consent or in fulfilment of a contract, handed over to you or a third party in a standard, machine-readable format. If you require the data to be transferred to another responsible party, this can only be done insofar as this is technically feasible.
SSL or TLS encryption
This page uses an SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and to protect the transfer of confidential content – for example orders or queries, that you send to us as page owner. An encrypted connection can be recognised in that the address line of the browser changes from “http://” to “https://” and a padlock symbol appears in the browser line.
When the SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data that you send to us cannot be read by third parties.
Information, blocking, deletion
Within the framework of the applicable legal regulations, you have the right at any time to information free of charge about your personal data that has been stored, their origin and recipient, the purpose of the data processing and, if applicable, a right to correction, blocking or deletion of these data. You can contact us at any time at the address given in the legal notice when you have further questions about personal data.

4. Data collection on our website
The internet pages use, in part, so-called cookies. Cookies do not cause damage to your computer and contain no viruses. Cookies are used to make our offering more user-friendly, more effective and more secure. Cookies are small text files that are deposited on your computer and are stored by your browser.
Most cookies used by us are so-called “session cookies”. They are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your end device till you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognise your browser on your next visit.
You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and only allow cookies in individual cases, they activate the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or general exclusion as well as the automatic deletion of cookies on closing the browser. The functionality of this website can be limited if the cookies are deactivated.
Cookies necessary for carrying out electronic communications operations or for providing certain functions desired by you (e.g. shopping cart function), remain stored on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The website owner has a legitimate interest in storing cookies for error-free and optimised provision of his services. If other cookies (e.g. cookies for analysis of your surfing behaviour) are stored, these will be treated separately in this data protection declaration.
Server log files
The provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transfers to us. These are:
- Browser type and version
- Operating system used
- Referrer URL
- Host name of the accessing computer
- Time of the server request
- IP address
A merging of these data with other data sources is not performed.
Basis for the data processing is Art. 6 par. 1 lit. f of GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) which allows the processing of data to fulfil a contract or pre-contract measures.
If you send us queries via contact form, your details from the form, including contact data given by you for the purpose of processing the query and for the case where further questions are stated, are stored by us. We do not pass on these data without your consent.
The processing of the data given in the contact form therefore takes place solely on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a of GDPR). You can revoke this consent at any time. It is sufficient to send us an informal notification by e-mail. The legality of the data processing operations up to the point of the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
The data given by you in the contact form remain with us until you request us to delete these; you revoke your consent for storing or the reason for the data storage lapses (e.g. after completing the processing of your query). Mandatory legal regulations – especially retention periods – remain unaffected.

Use of Matomo
On this website, data are collected and stored by the use of the web analysis service software Matomo (www.matomo.org), a service from the supplier InnoCraft Ltd., 150 Willis St, 6011 Wellington, New Zealand, (“Matomo”) on the basis of our legitimate interest in the statistical analysis of user behaviour for optimisation and marketing purposes according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. Pseudonymised user profiles can be generated and evaluated from these data for the same purpose. Cookies can be used for this. Cookies are small text files that are stored locally in the buffer memory of the page visitor’s internet browser. The cookies enable, amongst other things, the recognition of the internet browser. The data collected using Matomo technology (including their pseudonomised IP address) are processed on our servers.
The information in the pseudonomised user profile is not used to personally identify the visitor of this website and not merged with personal data about the bearer of the pseudonym.
If you do not agree to the storage and evaluation of this data from your visit, you can object to this storage and use at the click of a mouse at any time. In this case, a so-called opt-out-cookie is stored in your browser, which prevents Matomo collecting any session data. Please note that the complete deletion of your cookies results also in the deletion of the opt-out-cookie and must be reactivated by you, if necessary.
