Privacy policy by CABOA GmbH

General statement  

This privacy policy is intended to inform users of this website about the nature, scope and purpose of the collection and use of personal data by the website operator CABOA GmbH, Konrad-Adenauer-Str. 56 in 53757 Sankt Augustin. 

The website operator takes your privacy very seriously and will treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the law. As changes to this privacy policy may be made through new technologies and the continued evolution of this site, we encourage you to review the privacy policy periodically. 

Definitions of the terms used (e.g. “personal data” and “processing”) can be found in Art. 4 of the GDPR.

Access data 

We, the website operator or website provider, collect data on website access on the basis of our legitimate interest (see Art. 6 Para. 1(f) of the GDPR) and save this as “server log files” on the server of the website. The following data is logged:

  • Visited website

  • Time at the moment of access

  • Amount of data sent in bytes

  • Source/reference from which you came to the site

  • Browser used

  • Operating system used

  • IP address used
     

The server log files are stored for a maximum of 7 days and then deleted. The data is stored for security reasons, in order to clarify cases of misuse, for example. If data must be revoked for reasons of proof, it is excluded from the deletion until the incident has been finally clarified.

Range measurement & cookies

This website uses cookies for pseudonymized range measurement. The cookies are transmitted either from our server or the third-party server to the user’s browser. Cookies are small files that are stored on your device. Your browser accesses these files. The use of cookies increases the user-friendliness and security of this website.

If you do not want to save range-measuring cookies on your device, you may object to the use of these files here:

Commonly used browsers offer the option of not allowing cookies. Note: There is no guarantee that you will be able to access all the functions of this website without restrictions if you make the appropriate settings.

Collection and processing of personal data

The website operator collects, uses and transfers your personal data only if this is permitted by law or if you consent to the collection of data.


Personal data means all information that is used to identify you as a person and which can be traced back to you – such as your name, e-mail address and telephone number.

You can also visit this website without giving any personal information. To improve our online service, however, we store your access data (without personal reference) on this website. This access data includes the file you requested or the name of your internet service provider. Due to the anonymization of the data, it is not possible to establish your identity.

  • We process personal data such as first name, last name, IP address, e-mail address, place of residence, postal code and contents from the contact form.

  • We process personal data only with the express permission of the users concerned and in compliance with the applicable data protection regulations.

  • Personal data is processed on the basis of our legitimate interest in fulfilling our contractually agreed services and of optimizing our online service.
     

Handling contact data

For questions of any kind, we offer you the opportunity to contact us via a form provided on the website. It is necessary to provide a valid e-mail address so that we know who the request came from and to answer it. Further information can be provided voluntarily.

The data processing for the purpose of contacting us is in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1(a) of the GDPR based on your voluntarily granted consent. The personal data collected by us for the use of the contact form will be automatically deleted after your request has been dealt with.

There will be no transfer of your personal data to third parties for purposes other than those listed below.

We only share your personal data with third parties if:

  • you have given your express consent to this as per Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1(a) of the GDPR,

  • the disclosure as per Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1(f) of the GDPR is required to assert, exercise or defend legal claims and there is no reason to assume that you have a predominantly legitimate interest in not disclosing your data,

  • the disclosure as per Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1(c) of the GDPR is a legal obligation, and

  • this is legally permissible and as per Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1(b) of the GDPR is required for the settlement of contractual relationships with you.
     

Dealing with comments and posts

If you leave a post or comment on this website, your IP address will be saved. This is done on the basis of our legitimate interests within the meaning of Art. 6 Para. 1(f) of the GDPR and serves the security of us as a website operator. If your comment violates applicable law, we can be prosecuted, which is why we have an interest in the identity of the author of the comment or post.


Visitor Analytics

Visitor Analytics ist ein einfacher Website Analysedienst, der den Verkehr und das Verhalten des Besuchers auf der Website des Kunden misst. Das Ganze dient vor allem der Verbesserung der Usability der Website für den Kunden (z.B. welche Seiten werden besucht? wo sind diese in der Struktur der Website verortet?, wo kommt der Besucher an und welche Verweise nutzt der Besucher?)

Visitor Analytics is a simple website analytics service which measures the traffic and visitor behaviour on the customer’s website. The whole thing mainly serves to improve the usability of the website for customers (e.g. which pages are visited? Where are they located in the website’s structure? Where do the visitors arrive and which links do they use?)

 

Essentially, we use cookies, as the owners of the website via Visitor Analytics, information on the type of device used by the user, the screen site, assumed geographical location, browser, OS IPs, page hits, the bounce rate, and the website’s most frequently visited content. All this data is anonymized and Visitor Analytics will never use this information to identify individual persons or connect them to other data sources in order to identify individual persons. All visitors have full control of the cookie placement at all times.

How to control the cookies: you can control the cookies or switch them off completely if you wish by making the corresponding settings in your browser. You can read how this works in greater detail at aboutcookies.org 

For further information, please also refer to Visitor Analytics’ Terms Of Use, Cookie Information and Opt-Out / Do Not Track.

Google Analytics 

Due to the legitimate interest in the optimization and analysis of our online service as per Art. 6 Para. 1(f) of the GDPR, this website uses the service “Google Analytics”, which is provided by Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA). The service (Google Analytics) uses “cookies” – text files stored on your device. The information collected by the cookies is usually sent to a Google server in the US and stored there.

Google LLC complies with European data protection law and is certified under the Privacy Shield agreement:

https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active 

This website uses IP anonymization. The user’s IP address is shortened within the member states of the EU and the European Economic Area, as well as in other signatory countries to the agreement. Only in isolated cases is the IP address transferred in an unshortened format to a Google server in the USA and then shortened there. The personal connection to your IP address is ended by this shortening. The user’s IP address provided by the browser will not be combined with other data stored by Google.

Within the framework of the agreement on commissioned data, which we have concluded as website operator with Google Inc., the latter uses the information collected to create an evaluation of website use and website activity and provides services associated with Internet use. 

The data collected by Google on our behalf is used to evaluate the use of our online offer by individual users, e.g. to create reports on the activity on the website in order to improve our online offer. 

You have the option of preventing the storage of cookies on your device by making the appropriate settings in your browser. It cannot be guaranteed that you will be able to access all functions of this website without restrictions if your browser does not allow cookies. 

Furthermore, you can use a browser plugin to prevent the information collected by cookies (including your IP address) from being sent to Google Inc. and used by Google Inc. The following link leads you to the corresponding plugin: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de 

 

Alternatively, by clicking on this link (IMPORTANT: insert opt-out link), you prevent Google Analytics from collecting data about you within this website. By clicking on the link above you download an "opt-out cookie". Your browser must therefore allow the storage of cookies for this purpose. If you delete your cookies regularly, you will need to click on the link again each time you visit this website.

Here you will find further information on the use of data by Google Inc.:

User rights

As a user, you have the right to receive free information on request about which personal data about you has been stored.

Deletion of data 

Unless your request conflicts with a legal obligation to retain data (e.g. data retention), you have the right to have your data deleted. Data stored by us will be deleted if it is no longer required for its intended purpose and if there are no statutory retention periods. If data cannot be deleted because it is required for permissible legal purposes, the data processing will be restricted. In this case, the data will be blocked and not processed for other purposes.

Users of this website may exercise their right to object and object to the processing of their personal data at any time.
