  1. General principles for processing your personal data

(1) Personal data is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. Your personal data therefore includes all data that can be directly or indirectly assigned to your person, such as your name, your address, your telephone number or your e-mail address.

(2) Personal data shall be processed by us primarily if and to the extent that

  • • you have given us your consent to the processing of data for one or more specific purposes (Art. 6 para. 1 UAbs. 1 letter a DSGVO);
  • • the processing is necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are a party or for the implementation of pre-contractual measures taken at your request (Art. 6 para. 1 UAbs. 1 letter b DSGVO);
  • • the data processing is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which we are subject (Art. 6 para. 1 UAbs. 1 letter c DSGVO), or
  • • the data processing is necessary to protect our legitimate interests or those of a third party, unless your interests or fundamental rights and freedoms which require the protection of personal data override (Art. 6 para. 1 UAbs. 1 lit. f DSGVO).

(3) In the following provisions of this data protection declaration, we will explain which of the legal bases listed in paragraph 2 or other legal bases we use to process your personal data in individual cases.

(4) In some cases, we use external service providers to process your data. These have been carefully selected and commissioned by us, are bound by our instructions and are regularly monitored. Furthermore, we may pass on your personal data to third parties if we conclude contracts or offer similar services together with partners. You will receive more detailed information on this when you provide your personal data or in the following regulations of this data protection declaration. If our service providers or partners are based in a country outside the European Economic Area (EEA), we will also inform you about the consequences of this in the following provisions of this data protection declaration.

(5) The extent and type of processing of your data differ depending on whether you use our WEBSITE for purely informational purposes, i.e. do not register or otherwise provide us with information about yourself (cf.4 the following section) or make use of services on our WEBSITE, have a business relationship with us or wish to apply for a job with us (cf. the following section5). In addition, cookies are stored on your computer each time you visit the WEBSITE (cf. the following section6). We inform you about the other technologies we use on our WEBSITE in section 7. 7.

  1. Informational use of our website

When you call up our website merely to visit it, so-called log files are processed by being automatically recorded by our system. Log files are log files that are automatically stored when a connection is made between your network system and our website.

The following log files are processed automatically:

  • IP address of the requesting computer
  • Type of Internet browser used
  • Language of the Internet browser used
  • Version of the Internet browser used
  • Operating system and its version
  • Pages accessed
  • Date and time of the visit
  • Time zone difference from Greenwich Mean Time (GMT)
  • Access status/http status code
  • Transmitted data volume
  • Success or error of the loading process
  • Referrer
  • Websites that are accessed by the visitor’s system via our website

The log files contain your IP address and possibly other personal data. Therefore, an assignment to you is possible in principle. However, the IP address is shortened before it is stored for the first time. Therefore, an assignment to you is not possible and your data is not stored together with other personal data and only temporarily. The shortened IP address is deleted after 60 days at the latest. The legal basis for temporary processing of the data and log files is Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO.

  1. Utilisation of services/business relations/application

In addition to the purely informational use of our WEBSITE, we process personal data in connection with various services on our WEBSITE that you can use if you are interested. This usually requires you to provide further personal data, which we use to provide the respective service. Furthermore, we process personal data if you contact us in any other way, have a business relationship with us or wish to apply for a job with us. In detail:

Contact form / downloads / comments on our blog

(1) If you contact us, for example, via one of our contact forms, because you are interested in our products and services, you would like to download one of our case studies or whitepapers via the download function on our WEBSITE, or you would like to comment on our blog post, the processing of your contact data provided for this purpose takes place in order to answer your enquiries and/or suggestions or comments made via the respective contact form, by e-mail or in any other way. If you use this option, you will transmit the following data to us:

  • Your email address (to be able to contact you)
  • Your first and last name
  • The message you left for us
  • The company name (voluntary)

(2) With your consent, your contact data will be stored electronically in our systems and matched with existing contact data on Doppler or previous business relationships. The processing of your data is used to process the contact, to establish new business contacts, for direct advertising and for the administration of business relationships. We do not pass on your data to third parties. The legal basis for the processing of the data is Art. 6 para. 1 UAbs. 1 letter a DSGVO with regard to your consent.

(3) You can revoke your consent to the storage of your data at any time. You can revoke your consent by sending an e-mail to mail@macom.de or by sending a message to the contact details given in section 1.

(4) In addition to the data that you voluntarily provide to us, we store the time (date and time) of the transmission of your data to us, as well as your IP address. The processing of this data corresponds to our legitimate interest (Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO) in order to ensure the security of our systems and to counteract misuse. This data, which we additionally collect during your contact, is deleted as soon as it is no longer required, at the latest when the matter of your contact has been comprehensively clarified.

(5) The legal basis for processing your data for the purpose of processing your contact is Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO. It is our legitimate interest to process your data transmitted to us in order to contact you. The data is stored until it is no longer required to achieve the purpose of the conversation with you and the matter of your contact has been fully clarified.

If your contact aims to conclude a contract with us, the additional legal basis for processing your personal data is Art. 6 (1) lit. b DSGVO. This data is stored for as long as it is required for the execution of the contract. Beyond that, we only store your data in order to comply with contractual or legal obligations (e.g. tax obligations) (Art. 6 (1) lit. c DSGVO).

(6) Insofar as no legal or contractual retention periods prevent the deletion of your personal data, we will delete it as soon as it is no longer required to achieve the purpose for which it was collected.

5.2. Ordering our newsletter

(1) On our website, we offer you the opportunity to register for our newsletter free of charge. In addition to your declaration of consent, we need your e-mail address.

We will only send you the newsletter if you first confirm your registration to us via a confirmation e-mail sent to you for this purpose by clicking on the link provided. This is to ensure that only you can subscribe to the newsletter. Your confirmation in this regard must be made promptly after receipt of the confirmation e-mail, otherwise your newsletter registration will be automatically deleted from our database.

The legal basis for the newsletter dispatch as well as voluntary additional information is Art. 6 (1) lit. a DSGVO.

(2) The newsletter is sent via the technical service provider CleverReach GmbH & Co KG (Mühlenstr. 43, 26180 Rastede, Germany; “CleverReach”). For this purpose, it is necessary that we transmit your data provided in the context of the newsletter registration to CleverReach. This data is stored on CleverReach’s servers in Germany and Ireland. Our legitimate interests lie in the use of an effective, secure and user-friendly newsletter system. The legal basis for the use of CleverReach is Art. 6 para. 1 UAbs. 1 letter f DSGVO. Further information on data protection can be found in the CleverReach data protection statement at: https://www.cleverreach.com/de/datenschutz/

(3) To register for our newsletter via our WEBSITE, we use the so-called double-opt-in procedure. This means that after your registration, we will send you an e-mail to the e-mail address you provided in which we ask you to confirm that you wish to receive the newsletter. If you do not confirm your registration within 24 hours, your information will be blocked and automatically deleted after one month. In addition, we store your IP addresses and the times of registration and confirmation. The purpose of this procedure is to be able to prove your registration and, if necessary, to clarify a possible misuse of your personal data.

(4) You can revoke your consent to the sending of the newsletter at any time and unsubscribe from the newsletter. You can declare the revocation by clicking on the link provided in every newsletter e-mail, by e-mail to marketing@macom.de or by sending a message to the contact details given in section 1.

(5) Your data will only be stored for as long as is necessary to achieve the purpose. Your email address will therefore be stored for the duration of your active newsletter subscription if you have given your consent for this. The data that we additionally collect automatically during your subscription (IP address, date and time) will be deleted at the latest when you end your newsletter subscription.

5.3. Business relations

(1) If you are a business partner (e.g. customer or supplier) of ours, in addition to information about your company, we also process information about you personally (e.g. contact details) or other persons within your company. Your personal data is essentially collected directly by you (e.g. through orders) or in the course of processing by us, insofar as this is necessary for the implementation of the business relationship. Changes to contact persons in your company may also result in the subsequent collection of further personal data in connection with employees of your company.

(2) Your data will be stored and electronically processed primarily for the purpose of processing the contract between us and you. For communication in the context of contract processing (e.g. offers, orders, order confirmations, delivery notes and/or invoices), we may contact you via the data collected from you. This can be done via the postal address(es), e-mail address(es) or telephone and fax number(s). The technical and content-related formulation of contracts, in particular content, specifications and prices, can also be handled with the stored data. The legal basis for this is Art. 6 para. 1 UAbs. 1 letter b DSGVO.

(3) We may also send you information and notices regarding your business relationship with us to the data you have provided as well as offer you opportunities to initiate new business. If you are a customer of ours, we may, for example, send you our newsletter in compliance with the legal requirements (in particular Section 7 (3) UWG). The legal basis for this is Art. 6 para. 1 UAbs. 1 letter f DSGVO. If we receive feedback from you regarding these communications, which is aimed at concluding a contract with us, the additional legal basis for the processing of your data is Art. 6 (1) (1) (b) DSGVO.

(4) To fulfil our contractual obligations, we sometimes use different service providers. Your data will only be passed on to third parties if this is necessary for the processing of the contract or if you expressly consent to the transfer. The legal basis for this is Art. 6 para. 1 UAbs. 1 letter b DSGVO or Art. 6 para. 1 UAbs. 1 letter a DSGVO in the case of your consent.

(5) In principle, we do not transfer your personal data to countries outside the European Union or the European Economic Area (third countries). However, it may be necessary to transfer data to a third country in the course of obligations arising from contracts between us and you as a business partner. This transfer will only take place after precise examination and evaluation and only if the special requirements of Art. 44 et seq. DSGVO are fulfilled (e.g. adequacy decision of the Commission, standard data protection clauses, approved codes of conduct).

(6) Insofar as no legal or contractual retention periods prevent the deletion of your personal data, we will delete it as soon as it is no longer required to achieve the purpose for which it was collected.

5.4. Applications

We do not require any information from you that is not usable under the General Equal Treatment Act (e.g. race, ethnic origin, religion or belief, age, sexual identity). We also do not ask you to provide us with information on pregnancy, political views, philosophical or religious convictions or trade union membership.

Your rights

If we process your data, you are a “data subject” within the meaning of the GDPR. You have the following rights: right to information, right to rectification, right to restriction of processing, right toerasure, right to information and right to data portability. In addition, you have a right of objection, a right of revocation and the right to complain to the supervisory authority.

Below you will find some details on the individual rights:

a. Right to information

You have the right to request confirmation from us as to whether we are processing your personal data. If we process your personal data, you have the right to obtain information in particular about the processing purposes, categories of personal data, recipients or categories of recipients and, if applicable, the storage period.

b. Right of rectification

You have the right to correct and/or complete the data we have stored about you if this data is incorrect or incomplete. We will make the correction or completion without delay.

c. Right to restrict processing

Under certain circumstances, you have the right to request that we restrict the processing of your personal data. An example of this is if you dispute the accuracy of your personal data and we need to verify the accuracy for a certain period of time. For the duration of the verification, your data will only be processed in a restricted manner. Another example of restriction is if we no longer need your data, but you need it for a legal dispute.

d. Cancellation/Erasure right

You have the right in certain situations to request that we delete your personal data immediately. This is the case, for example, if we no longer need your personal data for the purposes for which we collected the data or if we have processed your data unlawfully. Another example would be if we process your data on the basis of your consent, you withdraw your consent and we do not process the data on any other legal basis. However, your right to erasure does not always exist. For example, we may process your personal data to comply with a legal obligation or because we need it for litigation.

e. Right to information

If you have exercised your right to rectify, erase or restrict the processing of your data, we are obliged to notify all recipients to whom we have disclosed your personal data of the rectification, erasure or restriction of the processing of your data, unless this proves impossible or involves a disproportionate effort.

f. Right to data portability

You have the right, under certain conditions, to receive the personal data you have provided to us in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format and the right to have this data transferred to another controller. This is the case if we process the data either on the basis of your consent or on the basis of a contract with you and that we process the data using automated procedures.

You have the right to request that we transfer your personal data directly to another controller, insofar as this is technically feasible and does not affect the freedoms and rights of other persons.

g. RIGHT OF OBJECTION

YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO OBJECT AT ANY TIME TO THE PROCESSING OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA BASED ON ART. 6 (1) LIT. E OR LIT. F DSGVO FOR REASONS ARISING FROM YOUR PARTICULAR SITUATION. THIS ALSO APPLIES TO PROFILING BASED ON THESE PROVISIONS.

WE WILL NO LONGER PROCESS YOUR PERSONAL DATA AFTER AN OBJECTION, UNLESS WE CAN DEMONSTRATE COMPELLING LEGITIMATE GROUNDS FOR THE PROCESSING WHICH OVERRIDE YOUR INTERESTS, RIGHTS AND FREEDOMS, OR THE PROCESSING SERVES THE ASSERTION, EXERCISE OR DEFENCE OF LEGAL CLAIMS.

If we process your personal data for the purpose of direct marketing, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of your personal data for the purpose of such marketing. This also applies to profiling insofar as it is related to direct advertising. If you object to the processing of your personal data for direct marketing purposes, we will no longer process it for these purposes.

h. Right of withdrawal

Pursuant to Art. 7 (3) DSGVO, you have the right to revoke your consent at any time. The withdrawal of consent does not retroactively invalidate the lawfulness of the processing.

i. Right of appeal to a supervisory authority

You have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy. In particular, you may exercise your right to lodge a complaint in the Member State of your residence, place of work or place of the alleged infringement if you consider that the processing of your personal data infringes the GDPR.
