The use of the websites of Gerresheimer AG is basically possible without any indication of personal data. However, if an affected person wishes to use our company's special services through our website, personal data processing may be required.

5. Cookies

The websites of Gerresheimer AG use cookies. Cookies are text files that are stored and saved on a computer system via an Internet browser. Many 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 string of characters through which Internet pages and servers can be assigned to the specific Internet browser in which the cookie was stored. This allows visited websites and servers to distinguish the individual's browser from other internet browsers that contain other cookies. A particular web browser can be recognized and identified by the unique cookie ID. Through the use of cookies, Gerresheimer AG can provide users of this website with more user-friendly services that would not be possible without the setting of cookies. By means of a cookie, the information and offers on our website can be optimized in the for the user. Cookies allow us, as already mentioned, 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 need not reenter their credentials each time they visit the website, as this is done by the website and the cookie stored on the user's computer system. Another example is the cookie of a shopping basket in the online shop. The online shop remembers the items that a customer has placed in the virtual shopping cart via a cookie.
The data subject can prevent the setting of cookies through our website at any time by means of a corresponding browser setting and thus permanently prevent the setting of cookies. Furthermore, already set cookies can be deleted at any time via an internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in all common internet browsers. If the data subject deactivates the setting of cookies in the Internet browser used, not all functions of our website may be fully usable. 

6. Collecting general data and information

The website of Gerresheimer AG 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 internet page from which an accessing system accesses our website (so-called referrers), (4) the sub-web pages which are accessed by a connecting system (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 in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.
When using this general data and information, Gerresheimer AG does not draw any conclusions about the person concerned. Rather, this information is required to (1) correctly deliver the contents of our website, (2) to optimize the content of our website and to advertise it, (3) to ensure the continued functioning 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. Gerresheimer AG evaluates this anonymously collected data and information both statistically 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 for the personal data processed by us. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by an affected person. 

7. Protection of minors

Gerresheimer does not request the personal data of any person under the age of sixteen (16) without the consent of their parents or guardians. We do not collect personal information from children and adolescents, do not collect them and do not share them with third parties. 

8. Subscription to our newsletter

On the website of Gerresheimer AG, users are given the opportunity to subscribe to the newsletter of our company. The personal data transmitted to the data controller when the newsletter is ordered is obtained from the input form used for this purpose.
Gerresheimer AG informs its customers and business partners at regular intervals by means of a newsletter about company offers. The newsletter 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 e-mail will be sent to the e-mail address registered by an affected person for the first time via our website for sending out newsletters using the double-opt-in procedure. This confirmation email is used to check whether the owner of the e-mail address as the person concerned authorized the receipt of the newsletter.
When subscribing to the newsletter, we also store the IP address of the computer system used by the person concerned at the time of registration, as well as the date and time of registration, as assigned by the Internet Service Provider (ISP). The collection of this data is necessary in order to understand the (possible) misuse of an affected person's e-mail address at a later date and therefore serves as a legal safeguard for the controller.
The personal data collected in the context of registering for the newsletter will be used exclusively to send our newsletter. Subscribers to the newsletter may also be notified by e-mail if this is necessary for the operation of the newsletter service or registration, as might be the case in the event of changes to the newsletter or technical changes. There will be no transfer of the personal data collected as part of the newsletter service to third parties. Subscription to our newsletter may be terminated by the person concerned at any time. The consent to the storage of personal data that the data subject has given us for the newsletter dispatch can be revoked at any time. For the purpose of revoking the consent, there is a corresponding link in each newsletter. It is also possible to unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time, directly on the controller's website, or by informing the controller some other different way. 

9. Newsletter tracking

Gerresheimer AG newsletters contain so-called tracking pixels. A tracking pixel is a miniature graphic that is embedded in such emails 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. Based on the embedded pixel, Gerresheimer AG can detect whether and when an e-mail was opened by a data subject and which links in the e-mail were called by the person concerned. Such personal data collected via the tracking pixels contained in the newsletters will be stored and evaluated by the controller in order to optimize the delivery of newsletters and to better adapt the content of future newsletters to the interests of the data subject. This personal data will not be disclosed to third parties. Affected persons are entitled at any time to revoke the relevant declaration of consent. After revocation, this personal data will be deleted by the controller. A cancellation of the receipt of the newsletter will automatically be interpreted as a revocation by Gerresheimer AG.

10. Contact via the website


Due to legal regulations, the website of Gerresheimer AG contains information that enables quick electronic contact with our company as well as direct communication with us, which also includes a general address for so-called electronic mail (e-mail address). If a data subject contacts the data controller by e-mail or through a contact form, the personal data provided by the data subject will be automatically saved. Such personal data, voluntarily transmitted by an individual to the controller, is stored for the purpose of processing or contacting the data subject. There is no disclosure of this personal data to third parties. The transmission is protected by SSL certificate. 

11. Routine deletion and blocking of personal data

The controller shall process and store the personal data of the data subject only for the period necessary to achieve the purpose of the storage or, as the case may be, by the European directives or regulations or by any other legislator in laws or regulations which the controller was provided for.
If the storage purpose is omitted or if a storage period prescribed by the European directives and regulations or any other relevant legislator expires, the personal data will be routinely blocked or deleted in accordance with the statutory provisions. 

12. Privacy Policy for the use and use of Google Analytics (with anonymization function)

The data controller has integrated the component Google Analytics (with anonymization function) on this website.  Google Analytics is a web analyis service. Web analysis is the collection, aggregation and evaluation of visitor behavior data on internet sites. A web analysis service gathers data on the website from which the data subject has accessed another internet site (called the Referrer), which subpages are accessed or how often and for how long a subpage is accessed for. A web analysis is carried out in order to optimize the website and to analyse the cost-use value of internet advertising.

Google Analytics’s operating company is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

For web analysis with Google Analytics, the data controller uses the add-on "_gat._anonymizeIp". Through this add-on, the data subject’s IP address when connecting over the internet is shortened and anonymized when our website is accessed from a European Union member state or from another state in the Schengen region or the European Economic Area.
The aim of Google Analytics is to analyse visitor traffic to our website. Google uses the acquired data and information to evaluate use on our website to create online reports for us that show activity on our website, and to perform further services in relation to usage of our website.
Google Analytics uses a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. What cookies are has already been explained above. By using this cookie Google is able to analyze the usage of our website. Each time one of the pages of this website is accessed by the controller and a Google Analytics component has been integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the person concerned is automatically initiated by the respective Google Analytics component to submit data to Google for online analysis purposes. As part of this technical process, Google will be aware of personal data, such as the IP address of the person concerned, which allow Google, among other things, to track the origin of the visitors and clicks, and subsequently make commission settlements possible.
Through the cookie, personally identifiable information is stored, such as access time, the location that access occurred, and the frequency of site visits by the data subject. Each time you visit our website, your personal information, 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 information is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may transfer such personal data collected through the technical process to third parties.
The data subject can prevent the setting of cookies through our website, as shown above, at any time by means of a corresponding setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently prevent the setting of cookies. This browser setting 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 the data generated by Google Analytics for the use of this website and the processing of this data by Google. To do this, the affected person must download and install the browser add-on at the link https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout. This browser add-on informs Google Analytics via JavaScript that no data and information about website visits may be transmitted to Google Analytics. The installation of the browser add-on is considered by Google as an objection. If the data subject's information technology system is later deleted, formatted or reinstalled, the data subject must re-install the browser add-on to disable Google Analytics. If the browser add-on is uninstalled or disabled by the data subject or any other person within their sphere of control, it is possible to reinstall or reactivate the browser add-on.

Additional information and Google's privacy policy can be found at https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/ and https://www.google.com/analytics/terms/us.html. Google Analytics is explained in more detail at https://www.google.com/intl/de_de/analytics/

14. Privacy Policy for Aim and Use of Google+

The controller has integrated the Google+ button as a component on this website. Google+ is a so-called social network. A social network is an Internet-based social meeting place, an online community that typically allows users to communicate with each other and interact in virtual space. A social network can serve as a platform to exchange views and experiences, or allows the Internet community to provide personal or business information. Google+ allows social network users to create private profiles, upload photos, and socialize through friend requests, among others.

Google+'s operating company is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

Each visit to one of the pages of this website operated by the controller and incorporating a Google+ button will cause the Internet browser on the subject's information technology system to be automatically triggered by the respective Google+ button, downloading a representation of the corresponding Google+ button from Google. As part of this technical process, Google will be aware of which specific sub-page is visited by the data subject. More detailed information about Google+ is available at https://developers.google.com/+/.

If the person is logged in to Google+ at the same time, Google recognizes which specific sub-page the data subject visited with each website and the entire duration of each of their stays on our website. This information is collected through the Google+ button and assigned by Google to the relevant Google + account of the data subject.
If the data subject activates one of the Google + buttons integrated on our website and thus makes a Google + 1 recommendation, Google assigns this information to the personal Google + user account of the person concerned and stores this personal data. Google will store the Google + 1 recommendation of the data subject and make it publicly available in accordance with the conditions accepted by the data subject. A Google +1 recommendation made by the data subject on this website will be subsequently provided together with other personal information, such as the name of the Google + 1 account used by the data subject and the photo in other Google services stored therein, For example, the search engine results of the Google search engine, the Google account of the data subject or other places, such as on websites or in connection with advertisements stored and processed. Furthermore, Google is able to link the visit to this website with other personal data stored on Google. Google also records this personal information for the purpose of improving or optimizing Google's different services.
Google always receives information via the Google + button that the data subject has visited our website if the data subject is simultaneously logged in to Google+ at the time of accessing our website; this happens regardless of whether the person clicks the Google + button or not.
If the data subject does not wish to transfer personal data to Google, the data subject can prevent such transmission by logging out of their Google + account before accessing our website.

If the data subject is simultaneously logged in to Twitter, Twitter recognizes with each visit to our website by the data subject and during the entire duration of the respective stay on our website, which specific underside of our website visits the data subject. This information is collected through the Twitter component and assigned through Twitter to the affected person's Twitter account. If the person concerned activates one of the Twitter buttons integrated on our website, the data and information transmitted with it are assigned to the personal Twitter user account of the person concerned and stored and processed by Twitter.
Twitter always receives information via the Twitter component that the person concerned has visited our website if the data subject is simultaneously logged in to Twitter at the time of access to our website; this happens regardless of whether or not the subject clicks on the Twitter component. If such a transfer of this information to Twitter is not wanted by the person concerned, it can prevent the transfer by logging out of their Twitter account before calling our website.

The applicable privacy policies of Twitter are available at https://twitter.com/privacy?lang=en

The operating company of Xing is XING SE, Dammtorstraße 30, 20354 Hamburg, Germany.

Each time one of the individual pages on this website is called up by the controller and on which a Xing component (Xing plug-in) has been integrated, the internet browser on the information technology system of the person concerned is automatically identified by the respective Xing Component, and downloads a representation of the corresponding Xing component of Xing.

20. Legal basis of data processing

Art. 6 I lit. a GDPR serves our company as the legal basis for processing operations where we obtain consent for a particular processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary to fulfill a contract of which the data subject is a party, as is the case, for example, in processing operations necessary for the supply of goods or the provision of any other service or consideration, processing shall be based on Art. 6 I lit. b GDPR. The same applies to processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of inquiries regarding 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 may be required 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 premises were injured and his or her name, age, health insurance 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 are based on Art. 6 I lit. f GDPR. On this legal basis, processing operations that are not covered by any of the above legal bases are required if processing is necessary to safeguard the legitimate interests of our company or a third party, unless the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the person concerned prevail. Such processing operations are particularly allowed for us because they have been specifically mentioned in European legislation. In that regard, it considered that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a customer of the controller (recital 47, second sentence, GDPR). 

21. Eligible processing interests that are being pursued by the controller or a third party

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

22. Duration for which the personal data are stored

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

23. Legal or contractual provisions 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 non-provision

We clarify that the provision of personal information is in part required by law (such as tax regulations) or may result from contractual arrangements (such as details of the contractor). Occasionally it may be necessary for a contract to be concluded in which a data subject provides us with personal data that must subsequently be processed by us. For example, the data subject is required to provide us with personal information when our company enters into a contract with her. Failure to provide the personal data would mean that the contract with the person concerned could not be closed. Prior to any personal data being provided by the person concerned, the person concerned must contact one of our employees. Our employee will inform the individual 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 the non-provision of the personal data. 

24. Existence of automated decision-making

As a responsible company, Gerresheimer does not use automatic decision-making or profiling.

25. Right of appeal to the competent supervisory authority

In the case of violations of data protection law, the person concerned has the right of appeal to the competent supervisory authority. The competent supervisory authority for data protection issues is the state data protection officer of the federal state in which our company is based. A list of the data protection officers as well as their contact data can be found at the following link: https://www.bfdi.bund.de/DE/Infothek/Anschriften_Links/anschriften_links-node.html.

26. Changes to our privacy policy

Gerresheimer reserves the right to change the security and privacy measures, as required by technical developments. In these cases, we also adapt our privacy policy accordingly. Users are requested to observe the current version of our privacy policy.
