We are very pleased about your interest in our company. Data protection is of a particularly high priority for the management of the aucobo GmbH. The use of the Internet pages of the aucobo GmbH is possible without any indication of personal data. However, if a data subject wants to use special services of our enterprise via our website, processing of personal data could become necessary. If processing of personal data is necessary and there is no legal basis for such processing, we will generally obtain the consent of the data subject.

The processing of personal data, such as the name, address, e-mail address, or telephone number of a data subject shall always be in line with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to the aucobo GmbH. By means of this data protection declaration, our enterprise 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 of their rights by means of this data protection declaration.

As the controller, the aucobo GmbH has implemented numerous technical and organizational measures to ensure the most complete protection of personal data processed through this website. However, Internet-based data transmissions can always be vulnerable to security risks, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, every data subject is free to transmit personal data to us by alternative means, for example by telephone.


General data processing information

The dataPersonal data is only collected if you provide it to us of your own accord. No other personal data is collected. Any processing of your personal data that goes beyond the scope of the legal permissions will only be carried out on the basis of your express consent.

Purpose of processing:
Contract execution

Categories of recipients:
Public authorities in case of overriding legal provisions.
External service providers or other contractors.
Other external bodies insofar as the data subject has given his consent or a transfer is permissible for overriding interest.

Third country transfers:
In the context of the execution of the contract, processors outside the European Union may also be used.

Duration of data storage:
The duration of the storage of personal data is determined on the basis of the respective legal basis, the purpose of processing and – if relevant – additionally on the basis of the respective statutory retention period (e.g. retention periods under commercial and tax law).

When personal data is processed on the basis of explicit consent pursuant to Art. 6 (1) a GDPR, this data is stored until the person concerned revokes his or her consent.

If there are legal retention periods for data that is processed within the framework of legal business or similar obligations on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b GDPR, this data will be routinely deleted after expiry of the retention periods, provided that it is no longer required for the fulfilment of the contract or the initiation of the contract and/or there is no justified interest on our part in the continued storage.

When processing personal data on the basis of Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR, this data is stored until the data subject exercises his or her right to object pursuant to Art. 21(1) GDPR, unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

When processing personal data for the purpose of direct marketing on the basis of Art. 6 (1) f GDPR, this data is stored until the data subject exercises his right to object in accordance with Art. 21 (2) GDPR.

Moreover, unless otherwise specified in the other information on specific processing situations in this statement, stored personal data are deleted when they are no longer necessary for the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed.


Specific information about the website

Usage data

When you call up our web pages, you transmit data to our web server (out of technical necessity) via your Internet browser. The following data is recorded during an ongoing connection for communication between your internet browser and our web server:

  • Date and time of the request
  • Name of the requested file
  • Page from which the file was requested
  • Access status (file transferred, file not found, etc.)
  • Web browser and operating system used
  • Complete IP address of the requesting computer
  • volume of data transferred.

For reasons of technical security, in particular to defend against attempted attacks on our web server, this data is stored by us for a short period of time. It is not possible for us to draw conclusions about individual persons on the basis of this data. After seven days at the latest, the data is deleted or made anonymous by shortening the IP address at domain level, so that it is no longer possible to establish a link to the individual user. The data is also processed in anonymous form for statistical purposes; it is not compared with other data or passed on to third parties, even in extracts.

Contact

This website uses HubSpot, a software-based marketing service of HubSpot Ireland Ltd, 2nd Floor 30 North Wall Quay, Dublin 1, Ireland, for the provision of an online appointment booking function, e-mail contact, the live chat system and for the contact form.
In the course of contacting us (e.g. via contact form, email, live chat or booking an appointment), personal data is collected. Which data is collected when using a contact form or booking an appointment can be seen from the respective form. The data you enter (e.g. e-mail address) is stored on HubSpot’s servers in the USA. This data is stored and used exclusively for the purpose of responding to your request or for contacting you and the associated technical administration. The legal basis for processing this data is our legitimate interest in responding to your request pursuant to Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR. If your contact aims at the conclusion of a contract, the additional legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 (1) lit. b GDPR. Your data will be deleted after final processing of your request. This is the case if it can be inferred from the circumstances that the matter in question has been conclusively clarified, further storage on the basis of Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR, Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR or Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR can be ruled out and provided that there are no statutory retention obligations to the contrary.

We have concluded a data processing agreement with HubSpot, with which we obligate HubSpot to protect the data of our customers and not to pass it on to third parties. For the transfer of data from the EU to the USA, HubSpot refers to so-called standard data protection clauses of the European Commission, which are intended to ensure compliance with the European level of data protection in the USA. You can obtain further information about Hubspot’s data protection provisions at the following Internet address:  https://legal.hubspot.com/privacy-policy

Use of customer data for direct marketing

Newsletter

Our email newsletters are sent via the technical service provider HubSpot, a software-based marketing service of HubSpot Ireland Ltd, 2nd Floor 30 North Wall Quay, Dublin 1, Ireland, to whom we pass on the data you provided when registering for the newsletter. This transfer takes place in accordance with Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR and serves our legitimate interest in using an effective advertising, secure and user-friendly newsletter system. Please note that your data is usually transferred to a HubSpot server in the USA and stored there.
HubSpot uses this information to send and statistically evaluate the newsletters on our behalf. For the evaluation, the sent e-mails contain so-called web beacons or tracking pixels, which are single-pixel image files that are stored on our website. This makes it possible to determine whether a newsletter message has been opened and which links, if any, have been clicked on. With the help of the web beacons and tracking pixels, HubSpot automatically creates general, non-personal statistics about the response behavior to newsletter campaigns. However, based on our legitimate interest in the statistical evaluation of newsletter campaigns for the optimization of advertising communication and better targeting of recipient interests, the web beacons also collect and utilize data of the respective newsletter recipient (email address, name, time of retrieval, IP address, browser type, and operating system) in accordance with Art. 6 Par. 1 lit f GDPR. This data allows an individual conclusion to be drawn about the newsletter recipient and is processed by HubSpot for the automated creation of statistics that show whether a specific recipient has opened a newsletter message.
If you wish to deactivate the data analysis for statistical evaluation purposes, you must unsubscribe from the newsletter.
HubSpot itself does not use the data for its own purposes, nor is the data passed on to third parties. To protect your data in the USA, we have concluded a data processing agreement (“Data Processing Agreement”) with HubSpot based on the standard contractual clauses of the European Commission to enable the transfer of your personal data to HubSpot. If you are interested, this data processing agreement can be viewed at the following Internet address: https://legal.hubspot.com/dpa

Advertising by letter post

Based on our legitimate interest in personalised direct advertising, we reserve the right to store your first name and surname, your postal address and – insofar as we have received this additional information from you as part of the contractual relationship – your title, academic degree, year of birth and your professional, industry or business designation in accordance with Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR and to use it to send you interesting offers and information about our products by post.
You can object to the storage and use of your data for this purpose at any time by sending a message to the person responsible.

Cookies (in general)

In order to make visiting our website more attractive and to enable the use of certain functions, we use so-called cookies on various pages. These are small text files that are stored on your terminal device. Some of the cookies we use are deleted after the end of the browser session, i.e. after you close your browser (so-called session cookies).

If cookies are set, they collect and process certain user information such as browser and location data as well as IP address values to an individual extent. Persistent cookies are automatically deleted after a specified period of time, which may vary depending on the cookie.

If personal data is also processed by individual cookies implemented by us, the processing is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b GDPR either for the execution of the contract or in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR to protect our legitimate interests in the best possible functionality of the website as well as a customer-friendly and effective design of the page visit.

Technically necessary Services/Cookies

Essential cookies enable basic functions and are necessary for the proper functioning of the website.

This website uses a so-called “cookie consent tool” to obtain effective user consent for cookies and cookie-based applications that require consent. The “cookie consent tool” is displayed to users in the form of an interactive user interface when they access the page, on which consent for certain cookies and/or cookie-based applications can be given by ticking the appropriate box. When using the tool, all cookies/services requiring consent are only loaded if the respective user grants the corresponding consent by ticking the appropriate box. This ensures that such cookies are only set on the respective user’s end device if consent has been granted. The tool sets technically necessary cookies to save your cookie preferences. Personal user data is generally not processed.
If, in individual cases, personal data (such as the IP address) is processed for the purpose of storing, assigning or logging cookie settings, this is done in accordance with Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR on the basis of our legitimate interest in legally compliant, user-specific and user-friendly consent management for cookies and thus in a legally compliant design of our website.
Further legal basis for the processing is furthermore Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c GDPR. As the responsible party, we are subject to the legal obligation to make the use of technically unnecessary cookies dependent on the respective user consent.
Further information on the operator and the setting options of the cookie consent tool can be found directly in the corresponding user interface on our website.

This website uses as a “cookie consent tool” “Borlabs Cookie”, which sets a technically necessary cookie (borlabs-cookie) to store your cookie consents. Borlabs cookie does not process any personal data. The borlabs-cookie stores the consent you gave when you entered the website. If you wish to revoke these consents, simply delete the cookie in your browser. When you re-enter/reload the website, you will be asked again for your cookie consent. You can find out more about the data processed through the use of BorlabsCookie in the Privacy Policy at https://borlabs.io/privacy/.

Analysis and Statistics Services/Cookies

Statistics Cookies collect information anonymously. This information helps us understand how our visitors use our website.

Google Analytics

This website uses Google (Universal) Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland (“Google”). Google (Universal) Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. This website uses Google (Universal) Analytics exclusively with the extension “_anonymizeIp()”, which ensures anonymization of the IP address by shortening and excludes a direct personal reference. Through this extension, your IP address is shortened beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google LLC.server in the USA and shortened there. Google will use this information on our behalf 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. In this context, the IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google (Universal) Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.
Google Analytics also enables the creation of statistics with statements about age, gender and interests of site visitors on the basis of an evaluation of interest-based advertising and with the inclusion of third-party information via a special function, the so-called “demographic characteristics”. This allows the definition and differentiation of user groups of the website for the purpose of targeting marketing measures. However, data records collected via the “demographic characteristics” cannot be assigned to a specific person.
All processing described above, in particular the setting of Google Analytics cookies for the reading of information on the end device used, will only be carried out if you have given us your express consent to do so in accordance with Art. 6 (1) a GDPR. Without this consent, Google Analytics will not be used during your visit to our website.
You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future. To exercise your revocation, please deactivate this service in the “Cookie Consent Tool” provided on the website. We have concluded an data processing agreement with Google for the use of Google Analytics, which obliges Google to protect the data of our site visitors and not to pass it on to third parties.

With this tool, movements on the websites on which Hotjar is used can be tracked (so-called heat maps). For example, it is possible to see how far users scroll and which buttons users click on and how often. Furthermore, with the help of the tool it is also possible to obtain feedback directly from the users of the website. In this way, we obtain valuable information to make our websites even faster and more customer-friendly. We pay particular attention to the protection of your personal data when using this tool. For example, we can only track which buttons you click and how far you scroll. Areas of the websites in which personal data of you or third parties are displayed are automatically hidden by Hotjar and are therefore not traceable at any time.
All of the processing described above, in particular the reading of information on the end device used, will only be carried out if you have given us your express consent to do so in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR. Without this consent, Hotjar will not be used during your visit to our website.
You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future. To exercise your revocation, please deactivate this service in the “Cookie Consent Tool” provided on the website.

Marketing cookies are used by third-party vendors or publishers to display personalized ads. They do this by tracking visitors across websites.

Facebook Pixel

Within our online offer, the so-called “Facebook Pixel” of the social network Facebook is used, which is operated by Facebook Ireland Limited, 4 Grand Canal Quare, Dublin 2, Ireland (“Facebook”).

If a user clicks on an advertisement placed by us and played on Facebook, an addition is added to the URL of our linked page by Facebook Pixel. If our site allows data sharing with Facebook through Pixel, this URL parameter is inscribed in the user’s browser via a cookie that our linked site sets itself. This cookie is then read by Facebook Pixel and enables the data to be forwarded to Facebook.
With the help of the Facebook Pixel, it is possible for Facebook, on the one hand, to determine the visitors to our online offer as a target group for the display of advertisements (so-called “Facebook Ads”). Accordingly, we use the Facebook pixel to display the Facebook ads placed by us only to those Facebook users who have also shown an interest in our online offer or who have certain characteristics (e.g. interests in certain topics or products determined on the basis of the websites visited), which we transmit to Facebook (so-called “Custom Audiences”). With the help of the Facebook Pixel, we also want to ensure that our Facebook Ads correspond to the potential interest of users and do not have a harassing effect. This allows us to further evaluate the effectiveness of the Facebook ads for statistical and market research purposes by tracking whether users were redirected to our website after clicking on a Facebook ad (so-called “conversion”).
The data collected is anonymous for us, so it does not allow us to draw any conclusions about the identity of the users. However, the data is stored and processed by Facebook, so that a connection to the respective user profile is possible and Facebook can use the data for its own advertising purposes, in accordance with the Facebook data usage policy (https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/). The data can enable Facebook and its partners to place advertisements on and outside of Facebook.
The data processing associated with the use of the Facebook Pixel is only carried out with your express consent in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR. You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future. To exercise your revocation, remove the check mark next to the setting for the “Facebook Pixel” in the “Cookie Consent Tool” integrated on the website.

LinkedIn Pixel

This website uses the retargeting and conversion tool of LinkedIn Ireland Unlimited Company, Wilton Place, Dublin 2, Ireland, with the help of which personalised advertisements on the “LinkedIn” platform can be displayed to visitors to this website.
For this purpose, a cookie, a small text file, is set on the browser of your end device when you visit our website, which loses its validity after 120 days. If the user visits certain pages of this website and is logged into his LinkedIn account at the same time, a connection is established to the LinkedIn servers, via which interest-based advertising can be displayed on the platform. At the same time, the cookie enables the creation of anonymous reports on the performance of the advertisements on LinkedIn as well as information on website interaction, which is provided to us and LinkedIn.
The display of advertisements and the creation of statistical reports will not take place if the user is not logged into their LinkedIn account at the same time as visiting this website.
The information obtained with the aid of the cookie never permits personal identification of the respective user.
All of the processing described above, in particular the setting of cookies for the reading of information on the end device used, is only carried out if you have given us your express consent to do so in accordance with Art. 6 (1) a GDPR. Without this consent, LinkedIn Insights will not be used during your visit to the site. You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future. To exercise your revocation, please deactivate this service in the “Cookie Consent Tool” provided on the website.
You can also permanently deactivate the LinkedIn Insight Tool as well as the display of interest-based advertising on LinkedIn by setting an opt-out cookie under the following link: https:
//www.linkedin.com/psettings/guest-controls/retargeting-opt-out
. This Opt-out cookie only works in this browser and only for this domain. If you delete your cookies in this browser, you must click the above link again.

This website uses the Youtube embedding function to display and play videos from the provider “Youtube”, which belongs to Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland (“Google”).
The extended data protection mode is used here, which, according to the provider, only triggers the storage of user information when the video(s) is/are played. If the playback of embedded Youtube videos is started, the provider “Youtube” uses cookies to collect information about user behaviour. According to information from “Youtube”, these are used, among other things, to collect video statistics, to improve user-friendliness and to prevent abusive behaviour. If you are logged in to Google, your data is directly assigned to your account when you click on a video. If you do not wish to have your data associated with your YouTube profile, you must log out before activating the button. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, whereby you must contact YouTube to exercise this right. Within the scope of using YouTube, personal data may also be transmitted to the servers of Google LLC. in the USA.
Independently of a playback of the embedded videos, a connection to the Google network is established each time this website is called up, which may trigger further data processing operations without our influence.
All processing described above, in particular the reading of information on the end device used via the tracking pixel, will only be carried out if you have given us your express consent to do so in accordance with Art. 6 (1) lit. a GDPR. Without this consent, Youtube videos will not be used during your visit to the site.
You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future. To exercise your revocation, please deactivate this service in the “Cookie Consent Tool” provided on the website via alternative options communicated to you on the website.

aucobo wearable platform

The aucobo wearable platform (“aucobo system”) is mainly aimed at enterprise customers (customer/contractor/responsible party), whereby aucobo itself always acts as a processor.

The aucobo wearable platform consists of the following components:

  • aucobo core: main software for device management, task management, workflow editor, role and user management and analyses
  • aucobo mobile: Software for mobile devices (e.g. smartwatches)
  • aucobo connector: universal connection between hardware and software systems and the aucobo core (e.g. for machine connection)

The aucobo system offers in principle the possibility to work with pseudonymized or/and personal data for users. This choice is incumbent on the customer (Controller). If personal data is used, the aucobo system provides an integrated function to anonymize personal data. The following data can be anonymized: all personal data in messages sent from our system and stored in the system.

If the aucobo system is used as a cloud solution, data is transmitted to our web server (due to technical necessity) via the end device (e.g. industrial smartwatch). If the aucobo system is used as an on-premise solution, data is transmitted (due to technical necessity) via the end device (e.g. industry smartwatch) to the server of the respective contractual partner/customer/responsible party (e.g. your employer).

In order to optimize the application and improve our software, we evaluate which functions of the software are used within the framework of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR.

User data – aucobo mobile:
The contracting party/customer can determine via role authorization concept “Administrators”, “API-User” and “ProcessOwner”, who create the following data, also in pseudonymized/anonymized form, about the respective users of the aucobo mobile application in the system of the respective contracting party/customer by using the aucobo core frontend (part of the aucobo system):

  • Voice message notifications and their contents (with respective time stamp)
  • Interactions with the mobile device (e.g. QR code scan) (with respective time stamp)

User data – aucobo core:
The following master data can be stored for the users of aucobo core (e.g. administrators):

  • Username
  • Role authorization within the aucobo system
  • Optional: E-mail address

Usage data – aucobo core:
The following data is recorded during an ongoing connection for communication between your internet browser and our web server:

  • Date and time of your visit
  • Internal IP address (not the external IP address)
  • Web browser and operating system used

For reasons of technical security, in particular to defend against attempted attacks on our web server, this data is stored by us in logs.

Analysis of the aucobo core application with Matomo

For the demand-oriented design of our aucobo core application, we use the tool Matomo as an on-premise solution exclusively in case of using the aucobo core application as a cloud solution. This is a so-called web analytics service. In order to record and analyze the usage of our aucobo core application, usage information is transferred to our server and stored for analysis purposes. This is only used for general usage analysis. The transmitted data is only stored anonymously, which means that it is never possible to draw conclusions about individual users. Your IP address is only processed in abbreviated form during this process and is thus made anonymous. If you would like to prevent the processing for analysis purposes, you can object at any time with a mouse click. To do so, please navigate in the aucobo core frontend to “Privacy”. There you have the possibility to prevent the processing by using an opt-out function. In this case, a so-called opt-out cookie is stored in your browser without usage data, which means that Matomo does not collect any session data.
