We are very pleased about your interest in our company. Data protection has a particularly high priority for the management of iSAtech water GmbH. A use of the internet pages of iSAtech water GmbH is generally possible without any indication of personal data. However, if a person wishes to make use of special services provided by our company via our website, it may be necessary to process personal data. If it is necessary to process personal data and there is no legal basis for such processing, we generally obtain the consent of the concerned partie.
The processing of personal data, for example the name, address, e-mail address or telephone number of a person concerned, is always carried out in accordance with the basic data protection regulation and in compliance with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to iSAtech water GmbH. By means of this data protection declaration, our company wishes to inform the public about the type, scope and purpose of the personal data collected, used and processed by us. Furthermore, this privacy statement informs concerned parties of their rights.
iSAtech water GmbH, as the party responsible for processing, has implemented numerous technical and organizational measures to ensure the most complete possible protection of the personal data processed via this website. Nevertheless, Internet-based data transmissions can generally have security gaps, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, every person concerned is free to transmit personal data to us by alternative means, for example by telephone.
1. DEFINITIONS OF TERMS
A) PERSONAL DATA
Personal data means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter referred to as "data subject"). An identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, on-line identification, or one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.
(B) PERSON CONCERNED
Data subject means any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data are processed by the controller.
Processing is any operation or set of operations, performed with or without the aid of automated means, which is performed upon personal data, such as collection, recording, organisation, organisation, filing, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.
D. LIMITATION OF PROCESSING
Limitation of processing is the marking of stored personal data with the aim of limiting their future processing.
Profiling is any automated processing of personal data consisting of the use of such personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyse or predict aspects relating to the performance of work, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, conduct, location or change of location of that natural person.
Pseudonymisation is the processing of personal data in such a way that the personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without the need for additional information, provided that this additional information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organisational measures which ensure that the personal data is not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.
(G) THE PERSON RESPONSIBLE OR RESPONSIBLE FOR THE PROCESSING
Controller or data controller is the natural or legal person, public authority, agency or any other body which alone or jointly with others determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data.

3. COLLECTION OF GENERAL DATA AND INFORMATION
The website of iSAtech water GmbH collects a series of general data and information with every call of the website by a person concerned or an automated system. This general data and information is stored in the log files of the server. The (1) browser types and versions used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the website from which an accessing system accesses our website (so-called referrer), (4) the sub-websites that are accessed via an accessing system on our website, (5) the date and time of an access to the Internet site, (6) an Internet Protocol address (IP address), (7) the Internet service provider of the accessing system and (8) other similar data and information which serve to avert danger in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.
When using this general data and information, iSAtech water GmbH does not draw any conclusions about the person concerned. This information is rather required to (1) deliver the contents of our website correctly, (2) optimize the contents of our website, (3) ensure the permanent operability of our information technology systems and the technology of our website and (4) to provide law enforcement agencies with the information necessary for criminal prosecution in the event of a cyber attack. These anonymously collected data and information are therefore statistically evaluated by iSAtech water GmbH on the one hand and also with the aim of increasing data protection and data security in our company, in order to ultimately ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data processed by us. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by a person concerned.
Cookies are used on this website. Cookies are text files that are placed and stored on a computer system via an internet browser.
The data subject can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time by using this link: Cookie Settings or a corresponding setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Furthermore, cookies that have already been set can be deleted at any time using an internet browser or other software programmes. This is possible in all common internet browsers. If the data subject deactivates the setting of cookies in the Internet browser used, not all functions of our website may be fully usable.
5. COLLECTION OF DATA BY TOOLS AND OTHERS
A) GOOGLE MAPS
This website uses Google Maps (API) from Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland ("Google"). Google Maps is a web service for displaying interactive (land) maps in order to visually present geographical information. By using this service, you will be shown our location and it will be easier for you to find us.
Already when calling up those sub-pages in which the map of Google Maps is integrated, information about your use of our website (such as your IP address) is transmitted to Google servers and stored there; this may also result in a transmission to the servers of Google LLC. in the USA. This occurs regardless of whether Google provides a user account through which you are logged in or whether a user account exists. If you are logged in to Google, your data will be directly assigned to your account. If you do not want the assignment with your profile at Google, you must log out before activating the button. Google stores your data (even for users who are not logged in) as usage profiles and evaluates them. The collection, storage and analysis are carried out in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO on the basis of Google's legitimate interest in the display of personalised advertising, market research and / or the design of Google websites to meet the needs of users. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, whereby you must contact Google to exercise this right.
B) GOOGLE reCAPTCHA
This website uses the reCAPTCHA function of Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland ("Google"). This function is primarily used to distinguish whether an entry is made by a natural person or is abused by machine and automated processing. The service involves sending the IP address and, where applicable, other data required by Google for the reCAPTCHA service to Google and is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f DSGVO on the basis of our legitimate interest in determining individual personal responsibility on the Internet and preventing abuse and spam. The use of Google reCAPTCHA may also involve the transmission of personal data to the servers of Google LLC. in the USA.
C) GOOGLE Analytics
The Google Analytics component (with anonymisation function) is used on this website. Google Analytics is a web analysis service. Web analysis is the collection, compilation and evaluation of data about the behaviour of visitors to websites. A web analysis service collects, among other things, data about the website from which a data subject has accessed a website (so-called referrers), which sub-pages of the website have been accessed or how often and for how long a sub-page has been viewed. A web analysis is mainly used to optimise a website and to analyse the costs and benefits of internet advertising.
The operating company of the Google Analytics component is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland.
The controller uses the addition "_gat._anonymizeIp" for web analysis via Google Analytics. By means of this addition, the IP address of the Internet connection of the data subject is shortened and anonymised by Google if access to our Internet pages is made from a member state of the European Union or from another state party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.
The purpose of the Google Analytics component is to analyse the flow of visitors to our website. Google uses the data and information obtained, among other things, to evaluate the use of our website, to compile online reports for us showing the activities on our website and to provide other services in connection with the use of our website.
Google Analytics sets a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. What cookies are has already been explained above. By setting the cookie, Google is enabled to analyse the use of our website. Each time one of the individual pages of this website operated by the data controller is called up and on which a Google Analytics component has been integrated, the internet browser on the data subject's information technology system is automatically caused by the respective Google Analytics component to transmit data to Google for the purpose of online analysis. As part of this technical process, Google obtains knowledge of personal data, such as the IP address of the data subject, which Google uses, among other things, to track the origin of visitors and clicks and subsequently to enable commission calculations.
By means of the cookie, personal information, for example the access time, the location from which an access originated and the frequency of visits to our website by the data subject, is stored. Each time the data subject visits our website, this personal data, including the IP address of the internet connection used by the data subject, is transmitted to Google in the United States of America. This personal data is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may pass on this personal data collected via the technical process to third parties.
The data subject can prevent the setting of cookies by our website, as already described above, at any time 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 cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. In addition, a cookie already set by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time via the internet browser or other software programmes.
6. ROUTINE DELETION AND BLOCKING OF PERSONAL DATA
The controller shall process and store personal data relating to the data subject only for the period of time necessary to achieve the purpose of storage or where provided for by the European legislator or other legislator in laws or regulations to which the controller is subject.
If the purpose of storage ceases to apply or if a storage period prescribed by the European Directive and Regulation Giver or another competent legislator expires, the personal data will be blocked or deleted as a matter of routine and in accordance with the statutory provisions.
7. RIGHTS OF THE DATA SUBJECT
A. RIGHT TO CONFIRMATION

C) RIGHT OF CORRECTION
Any person affected by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European legislator, to request the rectification without delay of inaccurate personal data concerning him. Furthermore, the data subject shall have the right to obtain the completion of incomplete personal data, including by means of a supplementary declaration, having regard to the purposes of the processing.
If a data subject wishes to exercise this right of rectification, he or she may at any time contact an employee of the controller.
D) RIGHT TO CANCELLATION (RIGHT TO BE FORGOTTEN)
Any person affected by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European Directives and Regulations, to obtain from the controller the immediate erasure of personal data relating to him/her, if one of the following reasons applies and provided that the processing is not necessary:
- The personal data has been collected or otherwise processed for purposes for which it is no longer necessary.
- The data subject withdraws his or her consent on which the processing was based pursuant to Article 6(1)(a) DPA or Article 9(2)(a) DPA and there is no other legal basis for the processing.
- The data subject lodges an objection to the processing pursuant to Article 21(1) of the DPA and there are no overriding legitimate reasons for processing, or the data subject lodges an objection to the processing pursuant to Article 21(2) of the DPA.
- The personal data were processed unlawfully.
- The deletion of personal data is necessary to comply with a legal obligation under Union law or the law of the Member States to which the controller is subject.
- The personal data were collected in relation to information society services offered in accordance with Article 8(1) of the DS-GVO.
If one of the above reasons applies and a data subject wishes to have personal data stored by iSAtech water GmbH deleted, he or she can contact an employee of the data controller at any time. The employee of iSAtech water GmbH will arrange that the request for deletion is immediately complied with.
If the personal data has been made public by iSAtech water GmbH and our company, as the responsible party, is obliged to delete the personal data in accordance with Art. 17 Para. 1 DS-GVO, iSAtech water GmbH will take appropriate measures, including technical measures, taking into account the available technology and the implementation costs, to inform other responsible parties responsible for data processing who process the published personal data, that the data subject has requested these other responsible parties to delete all links to this personal data or copies or replications of this personal data, insofar as the processing is not necessary. The employee of iSAtech water GmbH will arrange the necessary in individual cases.
E. RIGHT TO LIMITATION OF PROCESSING
Any person affected by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European Directives and Regulations, to obtain from the controller the restriction of processing if one of the following conditions is met:
- The accuracy of the personal data is contested by the data subject, for a period of time that allows the controller to verify the accuracy of the personal data.
- The processing is unlawful, the data subject refuses to have the personal data deleted and instead requests that the use of the personal data be restricted.
- The controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of the processing, but the data subject needs them for the purpose of asserting, exercising or defending legal claims.
- The data subject has lodged an objection to the processing pursuant to Article 21 (1) of the DPA and it is not yet clear whether the legitimate reasons of the controller outweigh those of the data subject.
If one of the above-mentioned conditions is met and a data subject wishes to request the restriction of personal data stored by iSAtech water GmbH, he or she can contact an employee of the person responsible for processing at any time. The employee of iSAtech water GmbH will arrange the restriction of the processing.
F) RIGHT TO DATA PORTABILITY
Any person affected by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European Directive and Regulation Giver, to receive the personal data concerning him/her, which have been provided by the data subject to a controller, in a structured, common and machine-readable format. It also has the right to transfer these data to another controller without hindrance from the controller to whom the personal data have been made available, provided that the processing is based on the consent pursuant to Article 6(1)(a) DPA or Article 9(2)(a) DPA or on a contract pursuant to Article 6(1)(b) DPA and that the processing is carried out by means of automated procedures, unless the processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller.
Furthermore, in exercising their right to data transfer, the data subject has the right, in accordance with Article 20 paragraph 1 of the DPA, to obtain that personal data be transferred directly from one controller to another controller, insofar as this is technically feasible and provided that it does not adversely affect the rights and freedoms of other persons.
In order to assert the right to data transfer, the person concerned can contact an employee of iSAtech water GmbH at any time.
G) RIGHT TO OBJECT
Every person concerned by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European legislator, to object at any time, for reasons arising from his or her particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning him or her carried out pursuant to Article 6(1)(e) or (f) of the DPA. This also applies to profiling based on these provisions.
iSAtech water GmbH no longer processes personal data in the event of an objection, unless we can prove compelling reasons for processing worthy of protection that outweigh the interests, rights and freedoms of the person concerned, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
If iSAtech water GmbH processes personal data in order to carry out direct advertising, the person concerned has the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data for the purpose of such advertising. This also applies to profiling, insofar as it is associated with such direct mail. If the person concerned objects to iSAtech water GmbH processing for the purposes of direct advertising, iSAtech water GmbH will no longer process the personal data for these purposes.
In order to exercise the right of objection, the person concerned can directly contact any employee of iSAtech water GmbH or any other employee. The data subject shall also be free to exercise his right of objection in relation to the use of information society services, notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC, by means of automated procedures involving technical specifications.
H) AUTOMATED CASE-BY-CASE DECISIONS INCLUDING PROFILING
Every person concerned by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European legislator, not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects concerning him/her or significantly affects him/her in a similar way, provided that the decision (1) is not necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between the data subject and the controller, or (2) is authorised by Union or national legislation to which the controller is subject and such legislation provides for adequate measures to safeguard the rights and freedoms and legitimate interests of the data subject, or (3) is made with the explicit consent of the data subject.
If the decision (1) is necessary for the conclusion or the fulfillment of a contract between the data subject and the responsible person or (2) is made with the express consent of the data subject, iSAtech water GmbH will take appropriate measures to protect the rights and freedoms as well as the legitimate interests of the data subject, including at least the right to obtain the intervention of a person on the part of the responsible person, to present its own position and to challenge the decision.
If the data subject wishes to exercise rights relating to automated decisions, he or she may at any time contact a member of staff of the controller.
I) THE RIGHT TO WITHDRAW DATA PROTECTION CONSENT
Every person affected by the processing of personal data has the right, granted by the European Directive and Regulation Giver, to revoke his or her consent to the processing of personal data at any time.
If the data subject wishes to exercise his or her right to withdraw consent, he or she may at any time contact an employee of the controller.
8. LEGAL BASIS OF THE PROCESSING
Art. 6 I lit. a DS-GVO serves our company as a legal basis for processing operations for which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is party, such as processing operations necessary for the supply of goods or provision of other services or consideration, the processing is based on Article 6 I lit. b DPA. The same applies to such processing operations which are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of enquiries about our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation which makes the processing of personal data necessary, for example to fulfil tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c DS-GVO. In rare cases, the processing of personal data might be necessary to protect vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor to our company were to be injured and his or her name, age, health insurance details or other vital information had to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Then the processing would be based on Art. 6 I lit. d DS-GVO. Ultimately, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I lit. f DS-GVO. Processing operations not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases are based on this legal basis if the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or of a third party, unless the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject prevail. Such processing operations are permitted to us in particular because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In this respect, he took the view that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a customer of the person responsible (recital 47 sentence 2 DS-GVO).
9. LEGITIMATE INTERESTS IN THE PROCESSING PURSUED BY THE CONTROLLER OR A THIRD PARTY
If the processing of personal data is based on Article 6 I lit. f DS-GVO, our legitimate interest is to carry out our business activities for the benefit of the well-being of all our employees and our shareholders.
10. DURATION FOR WHICH THE PERSONAL DATA ARE STORED
The criterion for the duration of storage of personal data is the respective legal retention period. After the expiry of this period, the corresponding data is routinely deleted if it is no longer required for the fulfilment or initiation of the contract.
11. LEGAL OR CONTRACTUAL REQUIREMENTS FOR THE PROVISION OF PERSONAL DATA; NECESSITY FOR THE CONCLUSION OF THE CONTRACT; OBLIGATION OF THE DATA SUBJECT TO PROVIDE THE PERSONAL DATA; POSSIBLE CONSEQUENCES OF FAILURE TO PROVIDE THE PERSONAL DATA
We would like to inform you that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or can also result from contractual regulations (e.g. information on the contractual partner). Sometimes it may be necessary for the conclusion of a contract that a data subject provides us with personal data, which must subsequently be processed by us. For example, the person concerned is obliged to provide us with personal data if our company concludes a contract with him/her. Failure to provide the personal data would mean that the contract with the data subject could not be concluded. Before the data subject provides personal data, the data subject must contact one of our employees. Our employee will inform the person concerned on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or contract or necessary for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and what the consequences would be if the personal data were not provided.
12. EXISTENCE OF AUTOMATED DECISION-MAKING
As a responsible company, we avoid automatic decision making or profiling.
