Designation of a data protection officer as mandated by law

We have appointed a data protection officer for our company. You can reach Stephan Krischke at: stephan.krischke@eizo.com

Revocation of your consent to the processing of data

A wide range of data processing transactions are possible only subject to your express consent. You can also revoke at any time any consent you have already given us. This shall be without prejudice to the lawfulness of any data collection that occurred prior to your revocation.

Right to object to the collection of data in special cases; right to object to direct advertising (Art. 21 GDPR)

In the event that data are processed on the basis of Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. e or f GDPR, you have the right to at any time object to the processing of your personal data based on grounds arising from your unique situation. This also applies to any profiling based on these provisions. To determine the legal basis, on which any processing of data is based, please consult this data protection declaration. If you log an objection, we will no longer process your affected personal data, unless we are in a position to present compelling protection worthy grounds for the processing of your data, that outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms or if the purpose of the processing is the claiming, exercising or defence of legal entitlements (objection pursuant to Art. 21 Sect. 1 GDPR).

If your personal data is being processed in order to engage in direct advertising, you have the right to at any time object to the processing of your affected personal data for the purposes of such advertising. This also applies to profiling to the extent that it is affiliated with such direct advertising. If you object, your personal data will subsequently no longer be used for direct advertising purposes (objection pursuant to Art. 21 Sect. 2 GDPR).

Right to log a complaint with the competent supervisory agency

In the event of violations of the GDPR, data subjects are entitled to log a complaint with a supervisory agency, in particular in the member state where they usually maintain their domicile, place of work or at the place where the alleged violation occurred. The right to log a complaint is in effect regardless of any other administrative or court proceedings available as legal recourses.

Right to data portability

You have the right to demand that we hand over any data we automatically process on the basis of your consent or in order to fulfil a contract be handed over to you or a third party in a commonly used, machine readable format. If you should demand the direct transfer of the data to another controller, this will be done only if it is technically feasible.

For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as purchase orders or inquiries you submit to us as the website operator, this website uses either an SSL or a TLS encryption program. You can recognize an encrypted connection by checking whether the address line of the browser switches from “http://” to “https://” and also by the appearance of the lock icon in the browser line.

If the SSL or TLS encryption is activated, data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.

Information about, rectification and eradication of data

Within the scope of the applicable statutory provisions, you have the right to at any time demand information about your archived personal data, their source and recipients as well as the purpose of the processing of your data.

If you have questions about this subject matter or any other questions about personal data, please do not hesitate to contact us at any time at the address provided in section “Information Required by Law.”

Right to demand processing restrictions

You have the right to demand the imposition of restrictions as far as the processing of your personal data is concerned. To do so, you may contact us at any time at the address provided in section “Information Required by Law.” The right to demand restriction of processing applies in the following cases:

  • If the processing of your personal data was/is conducted in an unlawful manner, you have the option to demand the restriction of the processing of your data in lieu of demanding the eradication of this data.
  • If we do not need your personal data any longer and you need it to exercise, defend or claim legal entitlements, you have the right to demand the restriction of the processing of your personal data instead of its eradication.
  • If you have raised an objection pursuant to Art. 21 Sect. 1 GDPR, your rights and our rights will have to be weighed against each other. As long as it has not been determined whose interests prevail, you have the right to demand a restriction of the processing of your personal data.

If you have restricted the processing of your personal data, these data – with the exception of their archiving – may be processed only subject to your consent or to claim, exercise or defend legal entitlements or to protect the rights of other natural persons or legal entities or for important public interest reasons cited by the European Union or a member state of the EU.

Rejection of unsolicited e-mails

We herewith object to the use of contact information published in conjunction with the mandatory information to be provided in section “Information Required by Law” to send us promotional and information material that we have not expressly requested.

3. Recording of data on this website

Cookies

Our websites and pages use what the industry refers to as “cookies.” Cookies are small text files that do not cause any damage to your device. They are either stored temporarily for the duration of a session (session cookies) or they are permanently archived on your device (permanent cookies). Session cookies are automatically deleted once you terminate your visit. Permanent cookies remain archived on your device until you actively delete them or they are automatically eradicated by your web browser.

In some cases it is possible that third party cookies are stored on your device once you enter our site (third party cookies). These cookies enable you or us to take advantage of certain services offered by the third party (e.g. cookies for the processing of payment services).

Cookies have a variety of functions. Many cookies are technically essential since certain website functions would not work in the absence of the cookies (e.g. the shopping cart function or the display of videos). The purpose of other cookies may be the analysis of user patterns or the display of promotional messages.

Cookies, which are required for the performance of electronic communication transactions (required cookies) or for the provision of certain functions you want to use (functional cookies, e.g. for the shopping cart function) or those that are necessary for the optimization of the website (e.g. cookies that provide measurable insights into the web audience), shall be stored on the basis of Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. f GDPR, unless a different legal basis is cited. The operator of the website has a legitimate interest in the storage of cookies to ensure the technically error free and optimized provision of the operator’s services. If your consent to the storage of the cookies has been requested, the respective cookies are stored exclusively on the basis of the consent obtained (Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. a GDPR); this consent may be revoked at any time.

You have the option to set up your browser in such a manner that you will be notified any time cookies are placed and to permit the acceptance of cookies only in specific cases. You may also exclude the acceptance of cookies in certain cases or in general or activate the delete function for the automatic eradication of cookies when the browser closes. If cookies are deactivated, the functions of this website may be limited.

In the event that third party cookies are used or if cookies are used for analytical purposes, we will separately notify you in conjunction with this Data Protection Policy and, if applicable, ask for your consent.

Server log files

The provider of this website and its pages automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser communicates to us automatically. The information comprises:

  • The type and version of browser used
  • The used operating system
  • Referrer URL
  • The hostname of the accessing computer
  • The time of the server inquiry
  • The IP address
  • This data is not merged with other data sources.

This data is recorded on the basis of Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. f GDPR. The operator of the website has a legitimate interest in the technically error free depiction and the optimization of the operator’s website. In order to achieve this, server log files must be recorded.

Contact form

If you submit inquiries to us via our contact form, the information provided in the contact form as well as any contact information provided therein will be stored by us in order to handle your inquiry and in the event that we have further questions. We will not share this information without your consent.

The processing of these data is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR, if your request is related to the execution of a contract or if it is necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures. In all other cases the processing is based on our legitimate interest in the effective processing of the requests addressed to us (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR) or on your agreement (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR) if this has been requested.

The information you have entered into the contact form shall remain with us until you ask us to eradicate the data, revoke your consent to the archiving of data or if the purpose for which the information is being archived no longer exists (e.g. after we have concluded our response to your inquiry). This shall be without prejudice to any mandatory legal provisions – in particular retention periods.

Request by e-mail, telephone or fax

If you contact us by e-mail, telephone or fax, your request, including all resulting personal data (name, request) will be stored and processed by us for the purpose of processing your request. We do not pass these data on without your consent.

These data are processed on the basis of Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. b GDPR if your inquiry is related to the fulfillment of a contract or is required for the performance of pre-contractual measures. In all other cases, the data are processed on the basis of our legitimate interest in the effective handling of inquiries submitted to us (Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. f GDPR) or on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. a GDPR) if it has been obtained.

The data sent by you to us via contact requests remain with us until you request us to delete, revoke your consent to the storage or the purpose for the data storage lapses (e.g. after completion of your request). Mandatory statutory provisions - in particular statutory retention periods - remain unaffected.

EIZO Technologies GmbH operates its LinkedIn site in order to present itself to, and communicate with, LinkedIn users and other interested persons who visit the LinkedIn site.

Responsible

As the operator of this social media profile, EIZO Technologies GmbH, Benzweg 3, 82538 Geretsried, Deutschland, is also responsible in terms of data protection law. This means that EIZO Technologies GmbH must also guarantee that your data is processed lawfully via this profile and that you can exercise your rights regarding your data also against EIZO Technologies GmbH (see article 26 DSGVO).

Cookies

Information about you may be collected through cookies on this social media profile, whether or not you have a LinkedIn account. Cookies are packets of data that tag users' computers, smartphones, and other devices with a unique identifier. They are regularly stored on the user's device when they visit a LinkedIn page, including this profile. The information stored in the cookies is received, recorded and processed by LinkedIn, particularly when the user visits LinkedIn services, services provided by other members of the LinkedIn group of companies, and services provided by other companies using LinkedIn services. In addition, other entities such as LinkedIn partners or even third parties may use cookies on LinkedIn services to provide services to companies advertising on LinkedIn. For more information about LinkedIn's use of cookies, see their privacy policies. Cookies are primarily used to provide visitors to LinkedIn sites with, for example, personalized advertising.

The collection of your data through cookies in the context of the use of a social media profile is not required by law or contract. It is also not necessary for the conclusion of a contract. There is therefore no obligation to transfer your data to LinkedIn. However, the non-transmission of your data (e.g. by blocking cookies) means that we cannot offer you our social media profile, or can only offer it to a limited extent.

Further details on the use of cookies by LinkedIn can be found in the data policy

You can ask EIZO Technologies GmbH for your personal data:

- Information in the form of a copy of personal data and related information,

- Provision in a structured and machine-readable format,

- in the event of their incorrectness, their correction,

- in particular, in the event of revocation of your consent or the fulfilment of its purpose, the deletion and in certain cases, demand the restriction of their processing, and

- object to the use of your data for the purposes of direct advertising at any time.

LinkedIn users can control the extent to which their user behavior may be tracked when they visit our LinkedIn site by going to the Advertising Preferences settings. Other options are available through the LinkedIn preferences or the right of objection form.

As a matter of principle, we delete personal data when there is no need for further storage. A requirement can exist in particular if the data is still needed to fulfil contractual services, to check and grant or ward off warranty and, if applicable, guarantee claims. In the case of statutory storage obligations, deletion shall only be considered after the expiry of the respective storage obligation.

Right of appeal to a supervisory authority

If you are of the opinion that the processing of personal data by EIZO Technologies GmbH does not comply with the legal requirements, you can lodge a complaint with the responsible supervisory authority.

Privacy policy for the use of online meeting tools

We would like to inform you in the following about the processing of personal data in connection with the use of online meeting tools.

Purpose of processing

We use online meeting tools to conduct conference calls, video conferences and/or webinars (hereinafter referred to as "Online Meetings").

Responsibility

The person responsible for data processing directly related to the execution of "online meetings" is EIZO Technologies GmbH, Benzweg 3, 82538 Geretsried.

Note: If you access the website of the online meeting tool, the provider is responsible for the data processing. However, calling up the website is only necessary in order to download the software. If you do not want to or cannot use the App, you can also use join the online meeting via your browser. In this case, the service is then also provided via the website.

Which data is processed?

Various types of data are processed when using online meeting tools. The scope of the data also depends on the information you provide before or during participation in an "online meeting". The following personal data is processed:

  • User information: e.g. display name, e-mail address (if applicable), profile picture (optional), preferred language
  • Meeting metadata: e.g. date, time, meeting ID, phone numbers, location
  • Text, audio and video data: You may be able to use the chat function in an "online meeting". To this extent, the text entries you make will be processed in order to display them in the "online meeting". In order to enable the display of video and the playback of audio, the data from the microphone of your terminal device and from any video camera of the terminal device will be processed for the duration of the meeting. You can turn off or mute the camera or microphone yourself at any time using the application.

Scope of Processing

We use different tools to conduct "online meetings". If we want to record "online meetings", we will inform you transparently in advance and - if necessary - ask for your consent. If necessary, for the purposes of recording the results of an online meeting, we will log the chat content. However, this will usually not be the case. Automated decision-making within the meaning of Art. 22 GDPR is not used.

Legal basis of data processing

As far as personal data of employees of EIZO are processed, § 26 BDSG is the legal basis of the data processing. If, in connection with the use of online meeting tools, personal data is not required for the establishment, execution or termination of the employment relationship, but is nevertheless an elementary component of the use of online meeting tools, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR is the legal basis for the data processing. In these cases, we are interested in the effective conduct of "online meetings".

In addition, the legal basis for data processing in the conduct of "online meetings" is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) GDPR, insofar as the meetings are conducted within the framework of contractual relationships.

If no contractual relationship exists, the legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR. Here too, we are interested in the effective implementation of "online meetings".

Recipient / passing on of data

Personal data processed in connection with participation in "online meetings" are generally not passed on to third parties unless they are specifically intended to be passed on. Please note that content from "online meetings", as well as in personal meetings, often serves precisely to communicate information with customers, interested parties or third parties and is therefore intended for disclosure.

Other recipients: The provider necessarily obtains knowledge of the above-mentioned data to the extent that this is provided for in our contract processing agreement.

Data processing outside the European Union

Data processing outside the European Union (EU) does not take place as a matter of principle, as we have limited our storage location to computer centers in the European Union. However, we cannot exclude the possibility that data is routed via Internet servers located outside the EU. This may be the case in particular if participants in "online meetings" are in a third country.

However, the data is encrypted during transport over the Internet and thus protected against unauthorized access by third parties.

Our data protection officer

We have appointed a data protection officer in our company. You can reach Stephan Krischke at stephan.krischke@eizo.com.

Finally, you have the right to object to the processing within the scope of the statutory provisions. You also have a right to data transferability within the framework of the data protection regulations.

Deletion of data
