2. When do we collect information about you?
Calling up our website / access data
Every time you use our website, we collect the access data that your browser automatically transmits to enable you to visit the website. The access data includes in particular:
- IP address of the requesting device
- date and time of the request
- the address of the website accessed and of the requesting website
- information about the browser and operating system used
- Online identifiers (e.g. device identifiers)
The data processing of this access data is necessary to enable a visit to the website and to ensure the long-term functionality and security of our systems. The access data is also temporarily stored in internal log files for the purposes described above. The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. b GDPR.
The information stored in the log files does not allow any direct conclusion to your person.
You have various options for contacting us. These include the contact and service request form as well as contacting us by e-mail. Which data is collected in each case can be seen from the respective input forms. In this context, we process data exclusively for the purpose of communicating with you. The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO.
The data collected by us when using the contact form will be automatically deleted after complete processing of your request, unless we still need your request to fulfill contractual or legal obligations.
You can apply to us for open positions via our applicant portal. The purpose of the data collection is the selection of applicants for the possible establishment of an employment relationship. We collect personal data for the receipt and processing of your application.
The legal basis for processing your application documents is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 b and Art. 88 para. 1 GDPR in conjunction with national data protection law.

This can be accessed here.
In our newsletter we inform you regularly about our products, novelties, events and promotions.
Personal service is our priority. It is important to us to address you personally when presenting our products and services. For this we need your first and last name. In addition, we offer the platform and related services exclusively to companies. By providing your business e-mail address and company name, it is clear that you are the right contact for us. With the help of the telephone number, we can contact you directly and answer initial queries immediately and thus more effectively.
For the dispatch of our newsletters requiring registration, we use the so-called double opt-in procedure or single opt-in procedure (depending on the country), i.e. we will only send you a newsletter if you have previously expressly agreed that we should activate the newsletter service. If a double opt-in is required in your country, you must also have confirmed that the e-mail address you provided belongs to you. For this purpose, we will send you a notification e-mail and ask you to confirm that you are the owner of the e-mail address provided by clicking on a link contained in this e-mail. We may not take this action if you have already confirmed to us in this way for another purpose that you are the owner of this e-mail address.
If you confirm your e-mail address, we will store your e-mail address, the time of registration and the IP address used for registration until you unsubscribe from the newsletter. The storage serves the sole purpose of sending you the newsletter and to be able to prove your registration. The legal basis for the processing is your consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO.
Unsubscribing from the newsletter is possible at any time, e.g. via the unsubscribe link included at the end of each newsletter. Alternatively, you can also send your unsubscribe request to the contact details above at any time. This does not incur any costs other than the transmission costs according to the prime rates of your internet service provider.
3. What do we use your data for?

In the context of further balancing of interests (Article 6, para. 1, letter f GDPR)
We may also use your data on the basis of a balance of interests to protect the legitimate, usually economic interests of us or of third parties, whereby we process pseudonymised or anonymised data wherever possible. This is done for the following purposes:

We are subject to various legal obligations, e.g. statutory retention obligations with regard to business documents.
4. Transfer of your data
If external service providers are used to operate this website or to provide services by a Marquardt Group company, or if another Marquardt Group company is responsible for processing the data, the companies concerned will only have access to your data to the extent necessary to fulfil their respective tasks and functions. Corresponding contractual agreements have been made.
If these service providers and Marquardt Group companies process your data outside the European Union, this may result in your data being transferred to a country that does not offer the same data protection standards as the European Union. In this case, we ensure that the respective recipients of your data contractually or otherwise guarantee an equivalent level of data protection to that of the European Union.
5. Use of Google Analytics
The data collected in this context may be transferred by Google to a server in the USA for evaluation and stored there. In the event that personal data is transferred to the USA, Google has submitted to the EU-US Privacy Shield. However, your IP address will be shortened before the usage statistics are evaluated so that no conclusions can be drawn about your identity. For this purpose, Google Analytics on our website has been extended by the code "anonymizeIP" in order to guarantee the anonymous collection of IP addresses.
Google will process the information obtained from the cookies in order to evaluate your use of the website, compile reports on website activity for website operators and to provide other services relating to website activity and internet usage.
For more information, see the Google Analytics privacy statement.
Every user can also view the offer without cookies. However, if you do not accept cookies, this may restrict the functionality of our website.

If you do not click on the graphic, there is no exchange between you and the providers of the SocialMedia buttons.

Marquardt uses social media profiles on the social networks of Facebook and Instagram (so-called "fan pages"). On the fan pages, content and offers are regularly published and shared.
The operators of the social networks record your usage behaviour via cookies and similar technologies upon every interaction on our fan pages or other Facebook or Instagram websites. Fan page operators can view general statistics about the interests and demographic characteristics (e.g. age, gender, region) of fan page visitors. When you use social networks, the nature, scope and purposes of processing social network data are determined primarily by the social network operators.

An exception applies to the data processing for usage analysis (Page Insights) which is described in the following; in this case, we are jointly responsible with Facebook.

- Facebook's Data Policy
Which Data are Collected?
When you visit our fan pages, Marquardt collects all communications, content and other information that you provide us directly, e.g. when you post something on a fan page or send us a private message. Of course, if you have an account on the social network, we can also see your public information, such as your username, information in your public profile, and content that you share with a public audience.
Usage Analysis (Page Insights)
Page insights offer us information about how our fan pages are used, what interests visitors to our fan pages have, and what topics and content are particularly popular. This allows us to optimise our fan page activities, e.g. by better tailoring to the interests and usage habits of our audience when planning and selecting content.
Marquardt and Facebook share responsibility for processing your data for providing Page Insights. For this purpose, we and Facebook have defined an agreement about which company fulfils the data protection obligations under the GDPR with regard to Page Insights data processing.

8. When do we delete your data?
In principle, we only store personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil contractual or statutory obligations for which we have collected the data. Afterwards we delete the data immediately, unless we need the data until the end of the statutory limitation period for purposes of proof for civil law claims or due to statutory retention obligations.
9. What data protection rights do you have?
You have the right to request information about the processing of your personal data by us at any time. We will explain the data processing and provide you with an overview of the data stored about you as part of the provision of information.
If data stored with us is incorrect or no longer up-to-date, you have the right to have this data corrected.
You may also request that your data be deleted. Should the deletion not be possible due to other legal regulations, the data will be blocked so that they are only available for this legal purpose.
You may also have the processing of your data restricted, e.g. if you believe that the data we have stored is incorrect.
You also have the right to data transferability.
To exercise your rights as described here, you may contact the above contact details at any time.
In addition, you have the right to object to data processing based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. e or f GDPR.
Furthermore, you have the right to complain to the data protection supervisory authority responsible for us.
10. Right of revocation
In accordance with Article 7 (2) GDPR, you have the right to revoke your consent to us at any time. As a result, we will not continue processing data based on this consent in the future. The revocation of consent does not affect the legality of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until revocation.
Insofar as we process your data on the basis of legitimate interests pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR, you have the right to object to the processing of your data in accordance with Art. 21 GDPR, insofar as there are reasons for this arising from your particular situation or the objection to direct advertising is directed. In the latter case, you have a general right of objection, which we will also implement without giving reasons.
If you would like to make use of your right of revocation or objection, a message to the above-mentioned contact data is sufficient.
11. How do we protect your data?
We maintain current technical measures to guarantee data security, in particular to protect your personal data from the dangers of data transmission and from third parties become aware of them. These are adapted to the current state of the art in each case.
In the course of the further development of our website and the implementation of new legal requirements, new technologies or in order to improve our service for you, changes to this data protection declaration may become necessary.
