We take data protection seriously
The protection of your privacy when processing personal data is an important concern for us. By default, when you visit our website, our web servers store the IP of your Internet service provider, the website from which you are visiting us, the web pages you visit on our site, and the date and duration of your visit. This information is essential for the technical transmission of the websites and the secure operation of the server. A personalised evaluation of this data is not carried out.
If you send us data via the contact form, this data is stored on our servers during the data backup. We will only use your data to process your request. Your data will be kept strictly confidential. It will not be passed on to third parties.

Personal data is data about you. This includes your name, your address and your e-mail address. You also do not have to disclose any personal data to visit our website. In some cases, we may need your name and address, as well as further information to provide you with the service you require.
The same applies if we are supplying you with information material you have requested or if we are answering your enquiries. In these cases, we will always make you aware of this. In addition, we only store the data that you have sent us automatically or voluntarily.
When you use one of our services, we usually only collect the data necessary to provide you with our service. We may ask you for more information, but it is entirely up to you whether you provide it or not. Whenever we process personal data, we do so in order to provide you with our service or to pursue our commercial objectives.
Automatically stored data
Server log files
The provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in what are known as server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. This information includes:
• The 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
• Full IP address of the requesting computer
• Volume of data transferred
This data is not merged with other data sources. The processing is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR based on our legitimate interest in improving the stability and functionality of our website. This data is stored by us for a short period of time for reasons relating to technical security and in particular to prevent attempted attacks on our web server. We cannot discern the identity of individual persons on the basis of this data. After seven days at the latest, the data is anonymised by shortening the IP address at domain level, so that it is no longer possible to establish a reference to the individual user. The data is also processed for statistical purposes in anonymised form; it will not be compared with other data records or transferred to third parties, even in part. The number of page views is only displayed within the scope of our server statistics, which we publish every two years in our activity report.
Registration on the website
Visitors to the Meggle website have the option to register on the site by providing personal data if they want to receive documents and sample products. The following personal data is collected: company, name, position, address, phone number, e-mail address.
By registering on the controller’s website, the data subject also gives consent to having the date and time of their registration stored, along with the IP address assigned by their internet service provider (ISP). This data is stored because it is the only way to prevent our services being misused and can help with investigations where necessary if offences have been committed. In this sense, the data needs to be stored to protect the controller. This data will never be passed on to third parties unless there is a statutory requirement to do so or unless it is to aid law enforcement. If the data subject registers voluntarily and provides their personal data, it makes it easier for us to send them documents and sample products. Individuals who have registered have the option to alter the personal data they provided on registration or to have that data completely erased from the controller’s database at any time. By registering, you undertake to keep your personal login details confidential and not make them available to any unauthorised third parties. We can accept no liability for misused passwords unless we are responsible for that misuse.
Information about the MEGGLE LinkedIn page
We use the technical platform and services of LinkedIn Ireland Unlimited Company, Wilton Place, Dublin 2, Ireland for the information service offered.
We would like to point out that you use the LinkedIn page and its functions on your own responsibility. This applies in particular to the use of the interactive functions.
When you visit our LinkedIn page, LinkedIn collects, among other things, your IP address and other information that is present on your PC in the form of cookies. This information is used to provide us, as operators of the LinkedIn pages, with statistical information about the use of the LinkedIn page.
The shared responsibility agreement under Art. 26 GDPR (as of 8/21/2020) with LinkedIn is available at: https://legal.linkedin.com/pages-joint-controller-addendum
Independently, we process data when you contact us via contact forms (so-called LinkedIn Lead Generation Forms). Our legitimate interest for the use of the so-called Lead Gen Forms serves marketing purposes in the context of business initiation, new customer acquisition and customer retention. Lead Gen Forms are forms that enable the integration of contact forms on the company profile or as sponsored content. By using these Lead Gen Forms services, we offer interested parties a function with which they can provide us as users with their e-mail address or other user information.
If you are a member of the LinkedIn platform with a personal profile, LinkedIn can assign the access of the above-mentioned content and functions to your personal profile. Further information on data protection and the Lead Gen Ads of LinkedIn can be found here: https://www.linkedin.com/legal/privacy-policy and https://business.linkedin.com/de-de/marketing-solutions/native-advertising/lead-gen-ads respectively.

On this website we use MyFonts Counter, a web analysis service developed by MyFonts Inc., 500 Unicorn Park Drive, Woburn, MA 01801, USA. In accordance with the licensing terms, page view tracking is carried out where the number of visits to the website is counted for statistical purposes and transferred to MyFonts. During this process, MyFonts only collects anonymised data. If necessary, the data is forwarded by activating Java script code in your browser. To completely prevent Java script code being run by MyFonts, you can install a Java script blocker (e.g. www.noscript.net) or deactivate the script using this opt-out.

We have taken technical and administrative security precautions to protect your personal data against loss, destruction, manipulation and unauthorised access. All our employees as well as service providers working for us are obliged to comply with the applicable data protection laws.
Whenever we collect and process personal data, it is encrypted before it is transferred. This means that your data cannot be misused by third parties.

Rights of data subjects:
You have a right at any time to request information about, rectify, delete or restrict the processing of your stored data, a right to object to the processing as well as a right to data portability and to appeal in accordance with the conditions of the data protection law.
Right of information:
You can request information from us regarding whether and to what extent we are processing your data.
Right to rectification:
If we process any of your data that may be incomplete or incorrect, you can ask us to rectify or complete it at any time.
Right to deletion:
You can ask us to delete your data if we are processing it unlawfully or if the processing disproportionately interferes with your legitimate protection interests. Please note that there may be reasons that prevent immediate deletion, e.g. if there are statutory retention obligations in place. Irrespective of whether you choose to exercise your right to have your data deleted, we will delete your data immediately and completely, unless there is a contractual or statutory retention obligation in force in this regard.
Right to restrict processing:
You can ask us to restrict the processing of your data if:
- you dispute the accuracy of the data for a period of time that allows us to verify the accuracy of the data.
- the processing of the data is unlawful, but you refuse to have it deleted, and instead request a restriction of its use,
- we no longer require the data for the intended purpose, but you still need this data to assert or defend legal claims, or
- you have lodged an objection to the processing of the data.
Right to data portability:
You can ask us to supply you with the data you have provided to us in a structured, standard and machine-readable format and to allow you to transfer this data to another responsible party without obstruction by us, if
- we are processing this data on the basis of your granted and revocable consent or to fulfil a contract between us, and
- this processing is carried out using automated procedures.
If it is technically feasible, you can ask us to transfer your data directly to another responsible party.
Right of objection: If we process your data for legitimate interest, you can object to this data processing at any time; this would also apply to profiling based on these provisions. We will no longer process your data unless we can prove compelling legitimate grounds for the processing that outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend your legal claims. You can object to the processing of your data for the purpose of direct marketing at any time without giving reasons.
Right of appeal: If you believe that we are in breach of German or European data protection laws when processing your data, please contact us in order to clarify any questions. Of course, you also have the right to contact the supervisory authority responsible for you, which in this case would be the respective State Office for Data Protection Supervision. If you wish to assert any of these rights against us, please contact our Data Protection Officer. In case of doubt, we may request additional information to confirm your identity.
