    Data protection

    We are very pleased that you are interested in our company. Data protection is of a particularly high priority for the management of the Alarm IT Factory GmbH. The Internet pages of Alarm IT Factory GmbH can generally be used without providing any personal data. However, if a data subject wants to use special company services via our website, processing of personal data could become necessary. If the processing of personal data is necessary and there is no legal basis for such processing, we generally obtain the consent of the person concerned.

    The processing of personal data, such as the name, address, e-mail address, or telephone number of a data subject shall always be in line with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), and in accordance with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to Alarm IT Factory GmbH. By means of this data protection declaration, our company would like to inform the public about the type, scope and purpose of the personal data we collect, use and process. Furthermore, data subjects are informed of the rights to which they are entitled by means of this data protection declaration.

    As the controller responsible for processing, Alarm IT Factory GmbH has implemented numerous technical and organizational measures to ensure the most complete possible protection of 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 in alternative ways, for example by telephone.

    The person responsible within the meaning of the General Data Protection Regulation, other data protection laws applicable in the member states of the European Union and other provisions of a data protection nature is:

    Alarm IT Factory GmbH
    Rotebühlstrasse 51A
    70178 Stuttgart
    Germany

    Phone: + 49 711 62 007 69 – 0
    E-Mail: datenschutz@alarm-it-factory.de
    Website: www.alarm-it-factory.de

    3. Cookies

    The Internet pages of the Alarm IT Factory GmbH use cookies. Cookies are text files that are filed and saved on a computer system via an Internet browser.

    Numerous websites and servers use cookies. Many cookies contain a so-called cookie ID. A cookie ID is a unique identifier of the cookie. It consists of a character string through which websites and servers can be assigned to the specific internet browser in which the cookie was stored. This enables the visited websites and servers to distinguish the individual browser of the person concerned from other internet browsers that contain other cookies. A specific internet browser can be recognized and identified via the unique cookie ID.

    Through the use of cookies, the Alarm IT Factory GmbH can provide the users of this website with more user-friendly services that would not be possible without the cookie setting.

    By means of a cookie, the information and offers on our website can be optimized for the user. As already mentioned, cookies enable us to recognize the users of our website. The purpose of this recognition is to make it easier for users to use our website. For example, the user of a website that uses cookies does not have to re-enter their access data each time they visit the website because this is done by the website and the cookie stored on the user's computer system. Another example is the cookie of a shopping cart in the online shop. The online shop uses a cookie to remember the items that a customer has placed in the virtual shopping cart.

    The person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time by means of a corresponding setting in 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 via an Internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in all common Internet browsers. If the person concerned deactivates the setting of cookies in the Internet browser used, not all functions of our website may be fully usable.

    4. Collection of general data and information

    The website of the Alarm IT Factory GmbH collects a series of general data and information each time the website is accessed by an affected person 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, which are accessed via an accessing system on our website can be controlled, (5) the date and time of access to the website, (6) an Internet protocol address (IP address), (7) the Internet service provider of the accessing system and (8) other similar data and information used to avert threats in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.

    When using these general data and information, the Alarm IT Factory GmbH does not draw any conclusions about the data subject. Rather, this information is required to (1) deliver the content of our website correctly, (2) optimize the content of our website and the advertising for it, (3) ensure the long-term functionality of our information technology systems and the technology of our website and ( 4) to provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for law enforcement in the event of a cyber attack. Alarm IT Factory GmbH therefore evaluates this anonymously collected data and information statistically, with the aim of increasing data protection and data security in our company, and ultimately to ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data we process. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by an affected person.

    5. Subscription to our newsletter

    On the website of the Alarm IT Factory GmbH, users are given the opportunity to subscribe to our enterprise's newsletter. Which personal data is transmitted to the person responsible for processing when ordering the newsletter results from the input mask used for this purpose.

    The Alarm IT Factory GmbH informs its customers and business partners regularly by means of a newsletter about enterprise offers. The newsletter of our company can only be received by the person concerned if (1) the person concerned has a valid e-mail address and (2) the person concerned registers for the newsletter dispatch. For legal reasons, a confirmation e-mail will be sent to the e-mail address entered by a data subject for the first time for the newsletter dispatch using the double opt-in procedure. This confirmation e-mail is used to check whether the owner of the e-mail address, as the person concerned, has authorized receipt of the newsletter.

    When registering for the newsletter, we also store the IP address assigned by the Internet Service Provider (ISP) of the computer system used by the person concerned at the time of registration, as well as the date and time of registration. The collection of this data is necessary in order to be able to understand the (possible) misuse of the e-mail address of a person concerned at a later point in time and therefore serves to provide legal protection for the person responsible for processing.

    The personal data collected as part of registering for the newsletter will only be used to send our newsletter. Furthermore, subscribers to the newsletter could be informed by e-mail if this is necessary for the operation of the newsletter service or for registration in this regard, as could be the case in the event of changes to the newsletter offer or changes in the technical conditions. The personal data collected as part of the newsletter service will not be passed on to third parties. The subscription to our newsletter can be canceled by the data subject at any time. The consent to the storage of personal data that the person concerned has given us for sending the newsletter can be revoked at any time. There is a corresponding link in every newsletter for the purpose of revoking consent. It is also possible to unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time directly on the website of the person responsible for processing or to inform the person responsible for processing of this in another way.

    6. Newsletter tracking

    The Alarm IT Factory GmbH newsletters contain so-called tracking pixels. A tracking pixel is a miniature graphic that is embedded in e-mails that are sent in HTML format to enable log file recording and log file analysis. This allows a statistical evaluation of the success or failure of online marketing campaigns to be carried out. Based on the embedded tracking pixel, the Alarm IT Factory GmbH can see if and when an e-mail was opened by a data subject, and which links in the e-mail were called up by data subjects.

    Such personal data collected via the tracking pixels contained in the newsletters are stored and evaluated by the person responsible for processing in order to optimize the newsletter dispatch and to adapt the content of future newsletters even better to the interests of the person concerned. This personal data will not be passed on to third parties. Affected persons are entitled at any time to revoke the relevant separate declaration of consent given via the double opt-in procedure. After a revocation, this personal data will be deleted by the person responsible for processing. The Alarm IT Factory GmbH automatically regards a withdrawal from the receipt of the newsletter as a revocation.

    7. Contact option via the website

    Due to legal regulations, the Alarm IT Factory GmbH website contains information that enables quick electronic contact to our company and direct communication with us, which also includes a general address for so-called electronic mail (e-mail address). If a person concerned contacts the person responsible for processing by e-mail or via a contact form, the personal data transmitted by the person concerned will be automatically saved. Such personal data transmitted on a voluntary basis by a data subject to the data controller are stored for the purpose of processing or contacting the data subject. This personal data will not be passed on to third parties.

    8. Comment function in the blog on the website

    The Alarm IT Factory GmbH offers users the opportunity to leave individual comments on individual blog posts on a blog, which is on the website of the person responsible for processing. A blog is a portal maintained on a website, usually open to the public, in which one or more people called bloggers or web bloggers can post articles or write down thoughts in so-called blog posts. The blog posts can usually be commented on by third parties.

    If a data subject leaves a comment on the blog published on this website, information about the time the comment was entered and the user name (pseudonym) chosen by the data subject will be stored and published in addition to the comments left by the data subject. Furthermore, the IP address assigned by the Internet Service Provider (ISP) to the data subject is also logged. The IP address is stored for security reasons and in the event that the person concerned violates the rights of third parties or posts illegal content by submitting a comment. The storage of this personal data is therefore in the own interest of the person responsible for processing, so that he could exculpate himself in the event of a violation of the law. This collected personal data will not be passed on to third parties unless such a transfer is required by law or serves the legal defense of the person responsible for processing.

    9. Subscription to comments in the blog on the website

    The comments made in the Alarm IT Factory GmbH blog can generally be subscribed to by third parties. In particular, it is possible for a commenter to subscribe to the comments that follow their comment on a specific blog post.

    If a data subject decides to subscribe to comments, the person responsible for processing sends an automatic confirmation e-mail in order to check in the double opt-in procedure whether the owner of the e-mail address provided is really responsible for this option decided. The option to subscribe to comments can be unsubscribed at any time.

    10. Routine Deletion and Blocking of Personal Data

    The person responsible for processing processes and stores the personal data of the person concerned only for the period of time necessary to achieve the purpose of storage or if this is required by the European directive and regulation giver or another legislator in laws or regulations which the person responsible for processing subject, was provided.

    If the purpose of storage no longer applies or if a storage period prescribed by the European directive and regulation authority or another responsible legislator expires, the personal data will be blocked or deleted as a matter of routine and in accordance with the statutory provisions.

      If one of the above reasons applies and a data subject wishes to have personal data stored at Alarm IT Factory GmbH deleted, they can contact an employee of the data controller at any time. The employee of Alarm IT Factory GmbH will ensure that the request for deletion is complied with immediately.

      If the personal data was made public by Alarm IT Factory GmbH and our company, as the person responsible, is obliged to delete the personal data in accordance with Art. 17 Para. 1 GDPR, Alarm IT Factory GmbH will take appropriate measures, taking into account the available technology and the implementation costs , also of a technical nature, in order to inform other persons responsible for data processing who process the published personal data that the person concerned has requested the deletion of all links to this personal data or copies or replications of these from these other persons responsible for data processing personal data has requested, insofar as the processing is not necessary.

    12. Data protection in applications and in the application process

    The person responsible for processing collects and processes the personal data of applicants for the purpose of handling the application process. The processing can also take place electronically. This is particularly the case if an applicant sends the relevant application documents electronically, for example by email or via a web form on the website, to the person responsible for processing. If the person responsible for processing concludes an employment contract with an applicant, the transmitted data will be stored for the purpose of processing the employment relationship in compliance with the statutory provisions. If the person responsible for processing does not conclude an employment contract with the applicant, the application documents will be automatically deleted two months after notification of the rejection decision, provided that deletion does not conflict with any other legitimate interests of the person responsible for processing. Another legitimate interest in this sense is, for example, a burden of proof in proceedings under the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG).

    13. Data protection provisions on the application and use of Google Analytics (with anonymization function)

    The person responsible for processing has integrated the Google Analytics component (with anonymization function) on this website. Google Analytics is a web analysis service. Web analysis is the collection, collection and evaluation of data about the behavior of visitors to websites. A web analysis service collects, among other things, data about the website from which a person concerned came to a website (so-called referrer), which subpages of the website were accessed or how often and for how long a subpage was viewed. A web analysis is mainly used to optimize a website and for the cost-benefit analysis of internet advertising.

    The operating company of the Google Analytics component is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland.

    The person responsible for processing uses the addition "_gat._anonymizeIp" for the web analysis via Google Analytics. With this addition, the IP address of the Internet connection of the person concerned is shortened and anonymized by Google if our website is accessed 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 analyze visitor flows on 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 that show the activities on our website, and to provide other services related to the use of our website.

    Google Analytics places 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 able to analyze the use of our website. Each time one of the individual pages of this website is called up, which is operated by the person responsible for processing and on which a Google Analytics component has been integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the person concerned is automatically activated by the respective Google Analytics component to transmit data to Google for online analysis. As part of this technical process, Google gains knowledge of personal data, such as the IP address of the person concerned, which Google uses, among other things, to trace the origin of visitors and clicks and subsequently to enable commission statements.

    The cookie is used to store personal information, such as access time, the location from which access was made and the frequency of visits to our website by the person concerned. Each time you visit our website, this personal data, including the IP address of the Internet connection used by the person concerned, 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 person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies by our website, as already described above, at any time by means of a corresponding setting in 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 person concerned. In addition, a cookie already set by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs.

    Furthermore, the data subject has the option of objecting to and preventing the collection of data generated by Google Analytics relating to the use of this website and the processing of this data by Google. To do this, the data subject must download and install a browser add-on from the link https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout. This browser add-on tells Google Analytics via JavaScript that no data and information about visits to websites may be transmitted to Google Analytics. The installation of the browser add-on is evaluated by Google as a contradiction. If the information technology system of the data subject is later deleted, formatted or reinstalled, the data subject must reinstall the browser add-on in order to deactivate Google Analytics. If the browser add-on is uninstalled or deactivated by the person concerned or another person who is attributable to their sphere of influence, there is the possibility of reinstalling or reactivating the browser add-on.

    Further information and Google's applicable data protection regulations can be found at https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/ and at http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html. Google Analytics is explained in more detail under this link https://www.google.com/intl/de_de/analytics/.

    14. Data protection provisions on the application and use of Google AdWords

    The person responsible for processing has integrated Google AdWords on this website. Google AdWords is an internet advertising service that allows advertisers to place ads in both Google's search engine results and the Google advertising network. Google AdWords allows an advertiser to pre-define certain keywords that will be used to display an ad in Google's search engine results only when the user uses the search engine to retrieve a keyword-related search result. In the Google advertising network, the ads are distributed to topic-relevant websites using an automatic algorithm and taking into account the previously defined keywords.

    The operating company for the services of Google AdWords is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland.

    The purpose of Google AdWords is to advertise our website by displaying interest-relevant advertising on the websites of third-party companies and in the search engine results of the Google search engine and by displaying third-party advertising on our website.

    If a person concerned reaches our website via a Google ad, a so-called conversion cookie is stored on the information technology system of the person concerned by Google. What cookies are has already been explained above. A conversion cookie loses its validity after thirty days and is not used to identify the person concerned. If the cookie has not yet expired, the conversion cookie is used to determine whether certain sub-pages, such as the shopping cart from an online shop system, were accessed on our website. The conversion cookie enables both us and Google to understand whether a person who came to our website via an AdWords ad generated revenue, i.e. completed or canceled a purchase.

    The data and information collected through the use of the conversion cookie are used by Google to create visit statistics for our website. In turn, we use these visit statistics to determine the total number of users who were referred to us via AdWords ads, i.e. to determine the success or failure of the respective AdWords ad and to optimize our AdWords ads for the future . Neither our company nor other Google AdWords advertisers receive information from Google that could be used to identify the person concerned.

    The conversion cookie is used to store personal information, such as the website visited by the person concerned. Accordingly, each time you visit our website, personal data, including the IP address of the Internet connection used by the person concerned, 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 person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies by our website, as already described above, at any time by means of a corresponding setting in 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 person concerned. 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 has the option of objecting to interest-based advertising by Google. To do this, the person concerned must call up the link www.google.de/settings/ads from each of the Internet browsers they use and make the desired settings there.

    15. Data protection provisions on the application and use of YouTube

    The person responsible for processing has integrated components from YouTube on this website. YouTube is an Internet video portal that allows video publishers to post video clips free of charge and other users to view, rate and comment on them free of charge. YouTube allows the publication of all types of videos, which is why both complete film and television programs as well as music videos, trailers or videos made by users themselves can be accessed via the Internet portal.

    YouTube is operated by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland.

    Each time one of the individual pages of this website is called up, which is operated by the person responsible for processing and on which a YouTube component (YouTube video) has been integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the person concerned is automatically activated by the respective YouTube component caused to download a representation of the relevant YouTube component from YouTube. Further information about YouTube can be found at https://www.youtube.com/yt/about/de/. As part of this technical process, YouTube and Google are informed which specific subpage of our website is visited by the person concerned.

    If the person concerned is logged in to YouTube at the same time, YouTube recognizes which specific subpage of our website the person concerned is visiting by calling up a subpage that contains a YouTube video. This information is collected by YouTube and Google and assigned to the respective YouTube account of the data subject.

    YouTube and Google always receive information via the YouTube component that the person concerned has visited our website if the person concerned is logged in to YouTube at the same time as accessing our website; this takes place regardless of whether the data subject clicks on a YouTube video or not. If the data subject does not want this information to be transmitted to YouTube and Google, they can prevent the transmission by logging out of their YouTube account before accessing our website.

    The data protection regulations published by YouTube, which can be accessed at https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/, provide information about the collection, processing and use of personal data by YouTube and Google.

    16. Legal basis for processing

    Art. 6 I lit. a GDPR serves our company as the legal basis for processing operations for which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary to fulfill a contract to which the data subject is party, as is the case, for example, with processing operations that are necessary for the delivery of goods or the provision of another service or consideration, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. b GDPR. The same applies to such processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures, for example in the case of inquiries about our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation which requires the processing of personal data, such as the fulfillment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c GDPR. In rare cases, the processing of personal data could become necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor were injured in our company and his name, age, health insurance data or other vital information would have to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Then the processing would be based on Art. 6 I lit. d GDPR.
    Ultimately, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I lit. f GDPR. Processing operations that are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases are based on this legal basis if the processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the person concerned do not 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 DSGVO).

    17. Legitimate interests in the processing that are being pursued by the controller or a third party

    If the processing of personal data is based on Article 6 I lit. f GDPR, our legitimate interest is conducting our business for the benefit of all our employees and our shareholders.

    18. Duration for which the personal data will be stored

    The criterion for the duration of the storage of personal data is the respective statutory retention period. After the deadline has expired, the corresponding data will be routinely deleted, provided that they are no longer required to fulfill the contract or to initiate a contract.

    19. Statutory or contractual requirements for providing the personal data; Necessity for the conclusion of the contract; obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data; possible consequences of non-provision

    We clarify 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 a contract to be concluded that a person concerned makes personal data available to us, which must then be processed by us. For example, the data subject is obliged to provide us with personal data if our company concludes a contract with them. Failure to provide the personal data would mean that the contract with the data subject could not be concluded.
    Before personal data is provided by the data subject, the data subject must contact one of our employees. Our employee clarifies to the data subject on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or contract or is 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.

    20. Existence of automated decision-making

    As a responsible company, we do not use automatic decision-making or profiling.
