1. Designation of the responsible body

Responsible for the processing of your data through this website by GK VISION GmbH is:

Managing Director: Karen Gyurjinyan
Eggerstedter Weg 18
25421 Pinneberg, Germany

Phone: +49 4101 805 0028

Every visitor can contact us directly at any time with all questions and suggestions regarding data protection.

2. Personal Data

If you send us inquiries or applications via e-mail or contact form, all personal data transmitted will be automatically stored by us for the purpose of processing, contacting and in case of follow-up questions. Of course, this data is treated confidentially and only used for the original reason and purpose of the transmission. In principle, the data will not be transmitted to third parties. Unless this is required or permitted by law, you have given us your consent or there is an official order to do so.

3. Encryption

For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content that you send to us as the site operator, our website uses SSL or TLS encryption. This means that data that you transmit via this website cannot be read by third parties. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the “https://” address line of your browser and the lock symbol next to the address line. Emails themselves are not encrypted.

4. Server Logfiles

This website collects general data and information with every call of the website by a visitor or an automated system. This general data and information is stored in the log files of the server. The types and versions of browsers used, the operating system used by the accessing system, the website from which an accessing system accesses our website, the subsites that are accessed via an accessing system on our website, the date and time of access to the website, an Internet protocol address, the Internet service provider of the accessing system and other similar data and information that serve to avert danger in the event of attacks on our information technology systems may be recorded. When using this general data and information, we do not draw any conclusions about the visitor. Rather, this information is needed to provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for prosecution in the event of a cyber attack. Therefore, the data and information collected is, on the one hand, statistically analyzed by us and, on the other hand, it is evaluated with the aim of increasing the data protection and data security of our enterprise so as to ultimately ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data we process. The data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by the visitor.

5. Google Analytics

This website uses functions of the web analysis service Google Analytics. The provider is Google Ireland Limited (Gordon House, Barrow Street Dublin 4. Ireland).

Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”. These are text files that are stored on your computer and enable an analysis of your use of the website. The data collected about you in this context is processed by Google and may be transferred to countries outside the European Union. When you visit one of our website pages equipped with a Google service, a connection to Google’s servers is established. In doing so, the Google servers are informed which of our pages you have visited. Which information Google receives and how it is used is described in general terms by Google in its data usage guidelines. There you will also find information about contact options. In what way Google uses the data for its own purposes, to what extent activities are assigned to individual users, how long Google stores this data and whether data is passed on to third parties, is not conclusively and clearly stated by Google and is not known to us. Further information on the handling of user data can be found in Google’s privacy policy at: https://policies.google.com/.

The storage of Google Analytics cookies is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analyzing user behavior in order to optimize both its website and its advertising.

IP Anonymization
We have activated the IP anonymization function on this website. This means that your IP address is shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area before being transmitted to the USA. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website operator. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other data from Google.

Browser Plugin
You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser, however please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. You can also prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) to Google and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.

Objection to data collection: Change cookie settings

Order Data Processing
We have concluded an order data processing contract with Google and fully implement the strict requirements of the German data protection authorities when using Google Analytics.

Demographic characteristics in Google Analytics
This website uses the “demographic characteristics” function of Google Analytics. This allows reports to be generated that contain statements about the age, gender and interests of site visitors. This data comes from interest-based advertising from Google as well as visitor data from third-party providers. This data cannot be assigned to a specific person. You can deactivate this function at any time via the ad settings in your Google account or generally prohibit the collection of your data by Google Analytics as shown in the item “Objection to data collection”.

6. Duration for which the personal data are stored

We process and store personal data only for the period necessary to achieve the purpose of storage. The criterion for the duration of the storage of personal data is the respective statutory retention period. If the storage purpose ceases to apply, the corresponding data is routinely deleted, provided that it is no longer required for contract fulfillment or contract initiation.

7. Your rights

You have the right to be informed at any time whether we process your personal data. If this is the case, this results in further information obligations on our part. Then you have the right to correct the data, to delete the data and to restrict the processing of the data, if this does not conflict with any other legal requirements. Of course, you can also revoke your given consent to the processing of the data. This does not affect the lawfulness of the processing until the revocation. You also have the right to have data that we process automatically on the basis of your consent or in fulfillment of a contract handed over to you or to third parties. The data will be provided in a machine-readable format. If you request the direct transfer of the data to another responsible party, this will only be done insofar as it is technically feasible. As a data subject, you have the right to lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority in the event of a breach of data protection law.

8. Legal basis and legitimate interest

Article 6, paragraph 1 littera a DSGVO serves as our legal basis for processing operations where we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. Article 6, paragraph 1 littera b DSGVO serves as our legal basis for processing operations where personal data are processed for the performance of a contract to which the visitor is a party. This is the case, for example, for processing operations necessary for the provision of a service, delivery of goods or consideration. Article 6, paragraph 1 littera c DSGVO serves as our legal basis for processing operations that are necessary for the performance of pre-contractual measures, such as in cases of inquiries about our services or products. This may be the case, for example, in the fulfillment of legal obligations. In conclusion, processing operations could be based on Article 6, Section 1 littera f DSGVO. Processing operations 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 freedoms of the data subject are not overridden.

9. In the end

We reserve the right to occasionally adapt this data protection declaration so that it always complies with the current legal requirements or to take into account changes to our services in the data protection declaration, for example when introducing new services. The new data protection declaration will then apply for renewed visits.
