Privacy Policy

We are very pleased about your interest in our company. Data protection has a particularly high priority for the management of VINATI GmbH. Use of the VINATI GmbH website is fundamentally possible without providing any personal data. If a data subject wishes to use our company's special services via our website, processing of personal data may be necessary. If the processing of personal data is required and there is no legal basis for such processing, we generally obtain the consent of the data subject. 

The processing of personal data, for example the name, address, email address or telephone number of a data subject, is always carried out in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation (the German Datenschutz-Grundverordnung (DS-GVO)) and in accordance with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to VINATI 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 about their rights by means of this data protection declaration. 


VINATI GmbH, as controller responsible for processing, has implemented numerous technical and organizational measures to ensure the most complete protection possible for 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 data subject is free to transmit personal data to us in alternative ways, for example by telephone.

3. Cookies


The VINATI GmbH website uses cookies. Cookies are text files that are saved and stored 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 data subject from other Internet browsers that contain other cookies. A specific internet browser can be recognized and identified using the unique cookie ID. By using cookies, VINATI GmbH can provide users of this website with more user-friendly services that would not be possible without the cookie setting. A cookie can be used to optimize the information and offers on our website in the interests of 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. The user of a website that uses cookies, for example, does not have to enter his access data every time he visits the website, because this is carried out 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 remembers the items that a customer has placed in the virtual shopping cart via a cookie. The person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies through our website at any time by means of an appropriate 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 programs. This is possible in all common internet browsers. If the person concerned deactivates the cookies setting on the internet browser used, under certain circumstances not all functions of our website can be used to their full extent.


4. Collection of general data and information


The VINATI GmbH website collects a series of general data and information each time the website is accessed by a data subject or an automated system. This general data and information is stored in the server's log files. The following can be recorded: (1) the 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 using an accessing system controlled on our website, (5) the date and time of access of 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 that serves to avert risks in the event of attacks on our information technology systems. 

When using this general data and information, VINATI GmbH does not draw any conclusions about the person concerned. Rather, this information is required to (1) present the content of our website correctly, (2) optimize the content of our website and the advertising for it, (3) to 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. This anonymously collected data and information is therefore statistically evaluated by VINATI 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 of the personal data we process. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by a data subject.


5. Registration on our website 


The data subject has the option of registering on the website of the data controller by providing personal data. Which personal data are transmitted to the person responsible for processing results from the respective input mask used for registration. The personal data entered by the data subject are collected and stored exclusively for internal use by the controller and for their own purposes. The controller can arrange for the transfer to one or more processors, for example a parcel service provider, who also uses the personal data exclusively for internal use, which is attributable to the controller. 

By registering on the website of the controller, the IP address assigned by the data subject's Internet service provider (ISP), the date as well as the time of registration are saved. This data is stored in view of the fact that the misuse of our services can only be prevented in that way and, if necessary, this data enables crimes committed to be investigated. In that respect, the storage of this data is necessary to protect the data controller. In principle, this data will not be passed on to third parties unless there is a legal obligation to pass it on or the passing on is used for criminal prosecution.

The registration of the data subject with the voluntary provision of personal data serves the data controller to offer the data subject content or services that, due to the nature of the matter, can only be offered to registered users. Registered persons are free to change the personal data provided during registration at any time or to have them completely deleted from the data base of the controller. 

The data controller will provide each data subject with information on what personal data about the data subject is stored at any time on request. Furthermore, the person responsible for processing corrects or deletes the personal data at the request or advice of the data subject, provided that there are no statutory retention requirements. The entire staff of the controller is available to the data subject as a contact person in this context. 


6. Subscription to our newsletter


On the VINATI GmbH website, users are given the opportunity to subscribe to our company's newsletter. Which personal data are transmitted to the person responsible for processing when you order the newsletter is determined by the input mask used for this purpose. 

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

When registering for the newsletter, we also save 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 data subject at a later point in time and therefore serves to provide legal protection for the controller. 

The personal data collected when you register for the newsletter will only be used to send our newsletter. In addition, subscribers to the newsletter could be informed by email if this is necessary for the operation of the newsletter service or a registration in this regard, as could be the case in the event of changes to the newsletter offer or changes in the technical circumstances. The personal data collected as part of the newsletter service is not passed on to third parties. The person concerned can cancel the subscription to our newsletter at any time. The consent to storage of personal data that the data subject has given us for sending the newsletter can be revoked at any time. For the purpose of withdrawing consent, there is a corresponding link in every newsletter. There is also the option to unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time directly on the website of the controller or by informing the controller in another way.


7. Newsletter tracking


The VINATI GmbH newsletters contain so-called tracking pixels. A tracking pixel is a miniature graphic that is embedded in emails that are sent in HTML format to enable log file recording and log file analysis. This enables a statistical evaluation of the success or failure of online marketing campaigns to be carried out. Based on the embedded tracking pixel, VINATI GmbH can recognize whether and when an email was opened by a data subject and which links in the email were clicked on by the data subject.

Such personal data collected via tracking pixels contained in the newsletters are stored and evaluated by the data controller in order to optimize the sending of the newsletter and to adapt the content of future newsletters even better to the interests of the data subject. This personal data will not be passed on to third parties. Affected persons are entitled at any time to revoke the separate declaration of consent relating to this, which is made using the double opt-in procedure. After revocation, this personal data will be deleted by the controller. If you unsubscribe from the newsletter, VINATI GmbH automatically interprets it as a revocation.


8. Contact option via the website


Due to legal regulations, the website of VINATI GmbH contains information that enables quick electronic contact to our company as well as direct communication with us, which also includes a general address of the so-called electronic mail (email address). If a data subject contacts the data controller by email or via a contact form, the personal data transmitted by the data subject will be automatically saved. Such data voluntarily transmitted from a data subject to the data controller are stored for the purposes of processing or contacting the data subject. This personal data is not passed on to third parties.

If the data subject is logged in to Facebook at the same time, Facebook recognizes each time our website is accessed by the data subject and for the entire duration of their stay on our website, which specific subpage of our website the data subject visits. This information is collected by the Facebook component and assigned to the respective Facebook account of the person concerned by Facebook. If the person concerned presses one of the Facebook buttons integrated on our website, for example the "Like" button, or if the person concerned makes a comment, Facebook assigns this information to the person's personal Facebook user account and stores this personal data .

Facebook always receives information via the Facebook component that the data subject has visited our website if the data subject is logged in to Facebook at the same time as accessing our website; this takes place regardless of whether the person concerned clicks on the Facebook component or not.

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

The controller has integrated the Google Analytics component (with anonymization function) on this website. Google Analytics is a web analytics service. Web analysis is the collection and evaluation of data about the behavior of visitors to websites. A web analysis service collects data, among other things, from which website a data subject 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 Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

The data controller uses the addition "_gat._anonymizeIp" for the web analysis via Google Analytics. With this addition, the IP address of the data subject's internet connection is shortened and anonymized by Google if access to our website is from a member state of the European Union or from another contracting state of 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 data subject's information technology system. 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 accessed, which is operated by the controller and on which a Google Analytics component has been integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically triggered 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 trace the origin of visitors and clicks and subsequently to enable commission statements.

Cookies are used to store personal information, such as the access time, the location from which access was made and the frequency of visits to our website by the person concerned. Every time you visit our website, this personal data, including the IP address of the internet connection used by the data subject, is transferred to Google in the United States of America. This personal data is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may share this personal data collected through the technical process with 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 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 placing 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 person concerned must download and install a browser add-on under the link https://tools.google.com/dlpag.... This browser add-on tells Google Analytics via JavaScript that no data and information about visits to websites may be transmitted to Google Analytics. Google considers the installation of the browser add-on to be an objection. If the data subject's information technology system is later deleted, formatted or reinstalled, the data subject must reinstall the browser add-on to deactivate Google Analytics. 

If the browser add-on is uninstalled or deactivated by the person concerned or another person who is within their sphere of influence, there is the option of reinstalling or reactivating the browser add-on.

Further information and the applicable data protection provisions of Google can be found at https://www.google.de/intl/de/... and at http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html. Google Analytics is explained in more detail under this link https://marketingplatform.goog....

19. Legal basis for processing


Art. 6 I lit. a “DS-GVO” serves our company as the legal basis for processing operations where 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 a party, as is the case, for example, with processing operations that are necessary for the delivery of goods or the provision of any other service or consideration, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. b “DS-GVO”. The same applies to such processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of inquiries about our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation that requires the processing of personal data, such as to fulfill tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c “DS-GVO”. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor to our company were injured and his name, age, health insurance data 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 that are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases are based on this legal basis if processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh them. Such processing operations are permitted to us in particular because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In this respect, he considered that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a customer of the person responsible (recital 47 sentence 2 “DS-GVO”).


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


Is the processing of personal data based on Article 6 I lit. f “DS-GVO” our legitimate interest in carrying out our business is for the benefit of all our employees and our shareholders.


21. Duration for which the personal data are stored


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


22. Legal or contractual regulations 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 not providing


We inform you that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or may also result from contractual regulations (e.g. information about the contracting party). Sometimes it may be necessary to conclude a contract that a data subject provides us with personal data that we subsequently have to process. For example, the person concerned is obliged to provide us with personal data if our company concludes a contract with them. Failure to provide personal data would result in the contract not being concluded with the person concerned. Before the data subject provides personal data, the data subject must contact one of our employees. Our employee clarifies the person concerned on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or contract or is required for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and the consequences of not providing the personal data.
