2. The collection and storage of personal data and the nature and purpose of their use

  1. a) When visiting the website

When you visit our website www​.milenia​-biotec​.de and [www​.webshop​.milenia​-biotec​.de], the browser used on your terminal device automat­i­cally sends infor­mation to the server of our website. This infor­mation is temporarily stored in a so-​​called log file. The following infor­mation is collected without your inter­vention and stored until it is automat­i­cally deleted:

  • IP address of the requesting computer,
  • Date and time of access,
  • Name and URL of the retrieved file,
  • Website from which access is made (referrer URL),
  • the browser used and, if applicable, the operating system of your computer as well as the name of your access provider.

The data mentioned will be processed by us for the following purposes:

  • Ensuring a smooth connection of the website,
  • To ensure a comfortable use of our website,
  • Evalu­ation of system safety and stability as well as
  • for other admin­is­trative purposes.

The legal basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. f DSGVO. Our legit­imate interest follows from the purposes listed above for the collection of data. Under no circum­stances do we use the collected data for the purpose of drawing conclu­sions about your person.

3. Passing on Data

Your personal data will not be trans­ferred to third parties for purposes other than those listed below.

We will only pass on your personal data to third parties if:

  • you have given your express consent in accor­dance with Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. a DSGVO,
  • this is legally permis­sible and required for the execution of contractual relation­ships with you pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. b DSGVO,
  • in the event that there is a legal oblig­ation to pass on data pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. c DSGVO, and
  • the disclosure pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. f DSGVO is necessary to safeguard legit­imate interests and there is no reason to assume that you have an overriding legit­imate interest in not disclosing your data.

3. Cookies

We use cookies on our site. These are small files that are automat­i­cally created by your browser and stored on your device (laptop, tablet, smart­phone, etc.) when you visit our site. Cookies do not cause any damage to your terminal device and do not contain viruses, Trojans or other malware.

Infor­mation is stored in the cookie, which results in each case in connection with the specif­i­cally used terminal device. This does not mean, however, that we will immedi­ately become aware of your identity.

The use of cookies serves on the one hand to make the use of our offer more pleasant for you. For example, we use so-​​called session cookies to recognise that you have already visited individual pages on our website. These are automat­i­cally deleted after leaving our site.

In addition, we also use temporary cookies to optimise user-​​friendliness, which are stored on your terminal for a specific period of time. If you visit our site again to make use of our services, it is automat­i­cally recog­nized that you have already been with us and which inputs and settings you have made so that you do not have to enter them again.

On the other hand, we use cookies to record the use of our website statis­ti­cally and to evaluate it for the purpose of optimising our offer for you (see point 5). These cookies enable us to automat­i­cally recognize that you have already visited our site when you visit it again. These cookies are automat­i­cally deleted after a defined period of time.

The data processed by cookies are necessary for the purposes mentioned to safeguard our legit­imate interests and those of third parties pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. f DSGVO.

Most browsers automat­i­cally accept cookies. However, you can configure your browser so that no cookies are stored on your computer or a message always appears before a new cookie is created. The complete deacti­vation of cookies may, however, result in you not being able to use all the functions of our website.

5. Analysis Tools

(a) Tracking tools

The tracking measures listed below and used by us are carried out on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. f DSGVO. With the tracking measures used, we want to ensure that our website is designed in line with require­ments and contin­u­ously optimised. On the other hand, we use the tracking measures in order to statis­ti­cally record the use of our website and to evaluate it for you for the purpose of optimising our offer. These interests are to be regarded as justified within the meaning of the afore­men­tioned provision.

The respective data processing purposes and data categories can be found in the corre­sponding tracking tools.

  1. i) Google Analytics

We use Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc., for the purpose of tailoring our pages to meet your needs and contin­u­ously optimising them. (https://​www​.google​.de/​i​n​t​l​/​d​e​/​a​bout/) (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; hereinafter referred to as “Google”). In this context, pseudo­nymised user profiles are created and cookies (see section 4) are used. The infor­mation generated by the cookie about your use of this website such as

  • Browser type/​version,
  • Operating system used,
  • Referrer URL (the previ­ously visited page),
  • Host name of the accessing computer (IP address),
  • Time of the server request,

are trans­ferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. This infor­mation is used to evaluate the use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide other services relating to website activity and internet usage for market research purposes and to tailor these internet pages to meet require­ments. This infor­mation may also be trans­ferred to third parties if this is required by law or if third parties process this data on behalf of third parties. Under no circum­stances will your IP address be merged with other Google data. The IP addresses are anonymised so that an allocation is not possible (IP masking).

You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appro­priate settings on your browser, however please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full function­ality of this website.

You can also prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and relating to your use of the website (including your IP address) and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing a browser add-​​on (https://​tools​.google​.com/​d​l​p​a​g​e​/​g​a​o​p​t​o​u​t​?​hl=de).

As an alter­native to the browser add-​​on, especially for browsers on mobile devices, you can also prevent the collection by Google Analytics by clicking on this link. An opt-​​out cookie is set to prevent your infor­mation from being collected in the future when you visit this website. The opt-​​out cookie applies only to this browser and only to our website and is placed on your device. If you delete the cookies in this browser, you will need to set the opt-​​out cookie again.

Further infor­mation on data protection in connection with Google Analytics can be found in the Google Analytics help (https://​support​.google​.com/​a​n​a​l​y​t​i​c​s​/​a​n​s​w​e​r​/​6004245​?​hl=de).

  1. ii) Google Adwords Conversion Tracking

We also use Google Conversion Tracking to record the use of our website statis­ti­cally and to evaluate it for the purpose of optimising our website for you. Google Adwords places a cookie (see number 4) on your computer if you have reached our website via a Google adver­tisement.

These cookies lose their validity after 30 days and are not used for personal identi­fi­cation. If the user visits certain pages on the AdWords customer’s website and the cookie has not expired, Google and the customer will be able to tell that the user clicked on the ad and was directed to that page.

Each Adwords customer receives a different cookie. Cookies can therefore not be traced via the websites of Adwords customers. The infor­mation collected using the conversion cookie is used to generate conversion statistics for Adwords customers who have opted for conversion tracking. Adwords customers will know the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were directed to a page with a conversion tracking tag. However, you will not receive any infor­mation that personally identifies users.

If you do not wish to partic­ipate in the tracking process, you can also refuse to set a cookie as required, for example by setting your browser to disable the automatic setting of cookies. You can also deactivate cookies for conversion tracking by setting your browser to block cookies from the domain “www​.googlead​ser​vices​.com”. Google’s Privacy Policy for Conversion Tracking can be found here (https://​services​.google​.com/​s​i​t​e​s​t​a​t​s​/​d​e​.html).

iii) Matomo

We use the open source software Matomo for the analysis and statis­tical evalu­ation of the use of the website. Cookies are used for this purpose (see section 4). The infor­mation generated by the cookie about website usage is trans­ferred to our servers and summarised in pseudo­nymous usage profiles. The infor­mation is used to evaluate the use of the website and to enable our website to be designed according to require­ments. The infor­mation will not be passed on to third parties.

Under no circum­stances will the IP address be associated with other data relating to the user. The IP addresses are anonymised so that an allocation is not possible (IP masking).

Your visit to this website is currently recorded by Matomo Web Analysis. Click here (https://​matamo​.org/​d​o​c​s​/​p​r​i​vacy/) so that your visit is no longer recorded.

6. Social Media Plug-​​ins

We use social plug-​​ins of the social networks Facebook, Twitter and Instagram on our website on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. f DSGVO in order to make our company better known. The adver­tising purpose behind this is to be regarded as a legit­imate interest within the meaning of the DSGVO. The respon­si­bility for the data protection-​​compliant operation is to be guaranteed by their respective providers. The integration of these plug-​​ins by us takes place by means of the so-​​called two-​​click method in order to protect visitors to our website in the best possible way.

  1. a) Facebook

Social media plugins from Facebook are used on our website to make their use more personal. For this we use the “LIKE” or “SHARE” button. This is an offer from Facebook.

If you call up a page on our website that contains such a plugin, your browser estab­lishes a direct connection with the Facebook servers. The content of the plugin is trans­mitted directly from Facebook to your browser, which integrates it into the website.

By integrating the plugins, Facebook receives the infor­mation that your browser has accessed the corre­sponding page of our website, even if you do not have a Facebook account or are not logged on to Facebook. This infor­mation (including your IP address) is trans­mitted directly from your browser to a Facebook server in the USA and stored there.

If you are logged in to Facebook, Facebook can assign your visit to our website directly to your Facebook account. If you interact with the plugins, for example by pressing the “LIKE” or “SHARE” button, the corre­sponding infor­mation is also trans­mitted directly to a Facebook server and stored there. The infor­mation is also published on Facebook and displayed to your Facebook friends.

Facebook may use this infor­mation for the purposes of adver­tising, market research and tailoring Facebook Pages to your needs. To this end, Facebook creates usage, interest and relationship profiles, e.g. to evaluate your use of our website with regard to the adver­tise­ments displayed to you on Facebook, to inform other Facebook users about your activ­ities on our website and to provide other services associated with the use of Facebook.

If you do not want Facebook to associate the infor­mation collected through our website with your Facebook account, you must log out of Facebook before visiting our website.

The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Facebook as well as your related rights and setting options for the protection of your privacy can be found in Facebook’s data protection infor­mation (https://​www​.facebook​.com/​a​b​o​u​t​/​p​r​i​vacy/).

  1. b) Twitter

On our internet pages you will find plugins of the Twitter Inc. (Twitter) are integrated. You can recognize the Twitter plugins (tweet button) by the Twitter logo on our site. You can find an overview of tweet buttons here (https://​about​.twitter​.com/​r​e​s​o​u​r​c​e​s​/​b​u​ttons).

If you access a page on our website that contains such a plugin, a direct connection will be estab­lished between your browser and the Twitter server. Twitter receives the infor­mation that you have visited our site with your IP address. If you click the Twitter “tweet” button while logged into your Twitter account, you can link the content of our pages to your Twitter profile. This allows Twitter to assign the visit to our pages to your user account. We would like to point out that, as the provider of the pages, we do not have any knowledge of the content of the data trans­mitted or its use by Twitter.

If you do not want Twitter to be able to assign visits to our pages, please log out of your Twitter user account.

Further infor­mation on this can be found in Twitter’s privacy policy (https://​twitter​.com/​p​r​ivacy).

  1. c) Instagram

Our website also uses social plugins (“Plugins”) from Instagram, operated by Instagram LLC, 1601 Willow Road, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA (“Instagram”).

The plugins are marked with an Instagram logo, for example in the form of an “Instagram camera”.

When you visit a page on our website that contains such a plugin, your browser connects directly to Instagram’s servers. Instagram sends the content of the plugin directly to your browser and integrates it into the page. This integration tells Instagram that your browser has accessed the appro­priate page on our site, even if you do not have an Instagram profile or are not logged into Instagram.

This infor­mation (including your IP address) is trans­ferred directly from your browser to an Instagram server in the USA and stored there. If you are logged in to Instagram, Instagram can directly associate your visit to our website with your Instagram account. If you interact with the plugins, for example by pressing the “Instagram” button, this infor­mation is also sent directly to and stored on an Instagram server.

The infor­mation is also published to your Instagram account and displayed to your contacts.

If you do not want Instagram to directly associate the data collected via our website with your Instagram account, you must log out of Instagram before visiting our website.

For more infor­mation, see Instagram’s Privacy Policy (https://​help​.instagram​.com/​155833707900388).

7. Google Maps

We use the street map Google Maps for orien­tation. Google Maps is provided by Google LLC, Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”). We would like to point out that Google collects data. With the use of Google Maps you agree with:

If your browser does not support 256-​​bit encryption, we use 128-​​bit v3 technology instead. You can tell whether an individual page of our website is trans­mitted in encrypted form by the closed repre­sen­tation of the key or lock symbol in the lower status bar of your browser.

We also use suitable technical and organ­i­sa­tional security measures to protect your data against accidental or inten­tional manip­u­lation, partial or complete loss, destruction or against unautho­rised access by third parties. Our security measures are contin­u­ously improved in line with techno­logical devel­op­ments.
