General information on data processing

This data protection declaration provides information on the collection, processing and use (hereinafter collectively referred to as “Processing“) of your personal data within the ENVIRIA online system and websites, functions and services offered within the framework of this system, irrespective of the domains, systems, platforms and devices used (hereinafter also collectively referred to as “Website“) and the associated services by ENVIRIA Energy Holding GmbH, Mainzer Landstrasse 33, 60329 Frankfurt am Main (hereinafter “ENVIRIA“, “we” or “us“) as the body responsible under data protection law. The operators of these pages take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the statutory data protection regulations and this privacy policy. When you use this website, various personal data of users will be collected. 

“Personal data” is data by which you can be personally identified. This Privacy Policy explains what data we collect and what we use it for. It also explains how and for what purpose this is done.

The term “user” includes all users and visitors of the Website. The terms used in this privacy policy, such as “user”, are to be understood as gender-neutral. If this privacy policy contains consents, these are highlighted (e.g. in bold).

We point out that data transmission over the Internet (e.g. communication by e-mail) can have security gaps. Complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.

Who is responsible for data collection on this website?

Data processing on this website is carried out by the website operator. You can find his contact details in the imprint of this website.

How do we collect your data?

On the one hand, your data is collected by you providing it to us. This can be, for example, data that you enter in a contact form.

Other data is collected automatically or after your consent when you visit the website by our IT systems. This is mainly technical data (e.g. Internet browser, operating system or time of page view). This data is collected automatically as soon as you enter this website.

What do we use your data for?

Some of the data is collected to ensure error-free provision of the website. Other data may be used to analyze your user behavior.

  1. Scope of the processing of personal data 

ENVIRIA takes the protection of your personal data seriously. Personal data will only be collected, processed and used by ENVIRIA if this is necessary to provide a functional website and our content and services. The processing of personal data of our users takes place regularly only after consent of the user. An exception applies in those cases in which obtaining prior consent is not possible for actual reasons and the processing of the data is required by legal regulations.

  1. Legal basis for the processing of personal data

Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for processing operations involving personal data, Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. A EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis.

When processing personal data that is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Article 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. b GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary for the performance of pre-contractual measures.

Insofar as the processing of personal data is necessary for the fulfilment of a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. c GDPR serves as the legal basis.

In the event that vital interests of the data subject or another natural person make it necessary to process personal data, Article 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. d GDPR serves as the legal basis.

If the processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the first-mentioned interest, Article 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. f GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing.

  1. Data deletion and storage duration 

The personal data of the data subject shall be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage ceases to apply. Storage may also take place if this has been provided for by the European or national legislator in Union regulations, laws or other provisions to which the controller is subject. Data will also be blocked or deleted if a storage period prescribed by the aforementioned standards expires, unless there is a need for further storage of the data for the conclusion or performance of a contract.

  1. Data security

We process personal data of users only in compliance with the relevant data protection provisions in accordance with the principles of data economy and data avoidance. This means that the user’s data will only be processed if a legal permission exists, in particular if the data is necessary for the provision of our contractual services and online services, or is required by law, or if consent has been given.

We take organizational, contractual and technical security measures in accordance with the state of the art to ensure that the provisions of data protection laws are complied with and to protect the data processed by us against accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction or against access by unauthorized persons.

  1. Third-party provider

If content, tools or other means from other providers (hereinafter collectively referred to as “Third Party Providers“) are used within the scope of this data protection declaration and their named registered office is abroad, it is to be assumed that a transfer of data to the countries in which the third-party providers are based takes place. The transfer of data to third countries takes place either on the basis of a legal permission, user consent or special contractual clauses that guarantee a legally required security of the data.

IV. Rights of the data subject

If your personal data is processed, you are a data subject within the meaning of the GDPR and you have the following rights vis-à-vis the controller:

  1. Right to information

You may request confirmation from the controller as to whether personal data concerning you are being processed by him.

You have the right to request information about whether the personal data concerning you is transferred to a third country or to an international organization. In this context, you may request to be informed about the appropriate safeguards pursuant to Art. 46 GDPR in connection with the transfer.

  1. Right to rectification

You have a right to rectification and/or completion vis-à-vis the controller, insofar as the processed personal data concerning you are inaccurate or incomplete. The controller shall carry out the rectification without undue delay.

  2. the processing is unlawful and you object to the erasure of the personal data and request instead the restriction of the use of the personal data;

  4. if you have objected to the processing pursuant to Article 21 (1) GDPR and it has not yet been determined whether the legitimate grounds of the controller outweigh your grounds.

If the processing of personal data concerning you has been restricted, such data may – apart from being stored – only be processed with your consent or for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of important public interest of the Union or a Member State.

If the restriction of processing has been restricted in accordance with the above conditions, you will be informed by the controller before the restriction is lifted.

  1. Right to deletion
  2. a) Obligation to delete

You may request the controller to delete the personal data concerning you without undue delay, and the controller is obliged to delete such data without undue delay, if one of the following reasons applies:

  1. the personal data concerning you are no longer necessary for the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed.
  2. you revoke your consent on which the processing was based pursuant to Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. a or Art. 9 (2) lit. a GDPR and there is no other legal basis for the processing.
  3. you object to the processing pursuant to Art. 21 (1) GDPR and there are no overriding legitimate grounds for the processing, or you object to the processing pursuant to Art. 21 (2) GDPR. 
  4. the personal data concerning you has been processed unlawfully.

  7. b) Information on third parties

If the controller has made the personal data concerning you public and is obliged to erase it pursuant to Article 17(1) of the GDPR, it shall take reasonable measures, including technical measures, having regard to the available technology and the cost of implementation, to inform data controllers which process the personal data that you, as the data subject, have requested that they erase all links to or copies or replications of such personal data.

  1. c) Exemptions

The right to deletion does not exist insofar as the processing is necessary for

  1. for the exercise of the right to freedom of expression and information;
  2. for compliance with a legal obligation which requires processing under Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject, or for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller;
  3. for reasons of public interest in the area of public health pursuant to Article 9(2)(h) and (i) and Article 9(3) of the GDPR;
  4. for archiving purposes in the public interest, scientific or historical research purposes or statistical purposes pursuant to Art. 89(1) GDPR, insofar as the right referred to in section a) is likely to render impossible or seriously prejudice the achievement of the purposes of such processing; or
  5. for the assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims.
  6. Right to information

If you have asserted the right to rectification, erasure or restriction of processing against the controller, the controller is obliged to notify all recipients to whom the personal data concerning you has been disclosed of this rectification or erasure of the data or restriction of processing, unless this proves impossible or involves a disproportionate effort.

You have the right against the controller to be informed about these recipients.

  1. Right to data portability

You have the right to receive the personal data concerning you that you have provided to the controller in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format. You also have the right to transfer this data to another controller without hindrance from the controller to whom the personal data was provided, provided that

  1. the processing is based on consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a GDPR or Art. 9 para. 2 lit. a GDPR or on a contract pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. b GDPR and
  2. the processing is carried out with the help of automated processes.

In exercising this right, you also have the right to have the personal data concerning you transferred directly from one controller to another controller, insofar as this is technically feasible. Freedoms and rights of other persons must not be affected by this.

The right to data portability does not apply to processing of personal data necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller.

  1. Right of objection

You have the right to object at any time, on grounds relating to your particular situation, to the processing of personal data relating to you which is carried out on the basis of Article 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. e or f GDPR; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions.

The controller shall no longer process the personal data concerning you unless it can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims.

If the personal data concerning you is processed for the purpose of direct marketing, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning you for the purpose of such marketing; this also applies to profiling, insofar as it is related to such direct marketing.

If you object to processing for direct marketing purposes, the personal data concerning you will no longer be processed for these purposes.

You have the possibility, in connection with the use of information society services – notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC – to exercise your right to object by means of automated procedures using technical specifications.

  1. Right to revoke the declaration of consent under data protection law

Many data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. You have the right to revoke your declaration of consent under data protection law at any time. For this purpose, an informal communication by e-mail to us is sufficient. The revocation of consent does not affect the lawfulness of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until the revocation.

Objection to advertising e-mails

The use of contact data published within the framework of the imprint obligation for the transmission of advertising and information material not expressly requested is hereby objected to. The operators of the pages expressly reserve the right to take legal action in the event of the unsolicited sending of advertising information, such as spam e-mails.

Right to object to data collection in special cases and to direct advertising (Art. 21 GDPR)

IF DATA PROCESSING IS CARRIED OUT ON THE BASIS OF ART. 6 ABS. 1 LIT. E OR F GDPR, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO OBJECT TO THE PROCESSING OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA AT ANY TIME FOR REASONS ARISING FROM YOUR PARTICULAR SITUATION; THIS ALSO APPLIES TO PROFILING BASED ON THESE PROVISIONS. THE RESPECTIVE LEGAL BASIS ON WHICH PROCESSING IS BASED CAN BE FOUND IN THIS PRIVACY POLICY. IF YOU OBJECT, WE WILL NO LONGER PROCESS YOUR PERSONAL DATA CONCERNED UNLESS WE CAN DEMONSTRATE COMPELLING LEGITIMATE GROUNDS FOR THE PROCESSING WHICH OVERRIDE YOUR INTERESTS, RIGHTS AND FREEDOMS, OR THE PROCESSING IS FOR THE PURPOSE OF ASSERTING, EXERCISING OR DEFENDING LEGAL CLAIMS (OBJECTION UNDER ARTICLE 21(1) GDPR).

IF YOUR PERSONAL DATA ARE PROCESSED FOR THE PURPOSE OF DIRECT MARKETING, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO OBJECT AT ANY TIME TO THE PROCESSING OF PERSONAL DATA CONCERNING YOU FOR THE PURPOSE OF SUCH MARKETING; THIS ALSO APPLIES TO PROFILING INSOFAR AS IT IS RELATED TO SUCH DIRECT MARKETING. IF YOU OBJECT, YOUR PERSONAL DATA WILL SUBSEQUENTLY NO LONGER BE USED FOR THE PURPOSE OF DIRECT MARKETING (OBJECTION PURSUANT TO ARTICLE 21 (2) GDPR).

  1. Automated decision in individual cases including profiling

You have the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing – including profiling – which produces legal effects concerning you or similarly significantly affects you. This does not apply if the decision:

  1. is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between you and the controller;
  2. is permissible on the basis of legal provisions of the Union or the Member States to which the controller is subject and these legal provisions contain appropriate measures to protect your rights and freedoms as well as your legitimate interests; or
  3. is done with your express consent.

However, these decisions may not be based on special categories of personal data pursuant to Article 9(1) of the GDPR, unless Article 9(2)(a) or (b) of the GDPR applies and appropriate measures have been taken to protect the rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests.

With regard to the cases mentioned in 1. and 3. above, the controller shall take reasonable steps to safeguard the rights and freedoms as well as your legitimate interests, which include at least the right to obtain the intervention of a person on the part of the controller, to express his or her point of view and to contest the decision.

  1. Right to complain to a supervisory authority

You have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of your residence, workplace or the place of the alleged infringement, if you consider that the processing of personal data relating to you infringes the GDPR. The right of appeal is without prejudice to other administrative or judicial remedies.

The supervisory authority to which the complaint has been lodged shall inform the complainant of the status and outcome of the complaint, including the possibility of a judicial remedy under Article 78 GDPR.

V. Provision of the website and creation of the log files
  1. Description and scope of Data Processing

Each time you visit our website, our system automatically collects data and information from the computer system of the calling computer. This website is hosted on servers at an external service provider commissioned by us, [] (hoster). The personal data collected on this website is stored on the hoster’s servers.

The servers automatically collect and store information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits when you visit the website.

Among others, the following data is collected in the process:

  • information about the browser type and version used.
  • the operating system of the user
  • the user’s Internet service provider
  • host name of the accessing computer
  • date and time of the server request
  • referrer URL (the previously visited page)
  • name of the requesting provider
  • the IP address of the user
  • date and time of access
  • the amount of data transferred
  • web pages from which the user’s system accesses our website
  • web pages that are accessed by the user’s system via our website

This data is stored in the log files of our system. This data is not stored together with other personal data of the user. This data is not merged with other data sources. 

The location of the server of the website is geographically in Germany.

  1. Purpose of the Data Processing

The host is used for the purpose of fulfilling contracts with our potential and existing customers (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR) and in the interest of a secure, fast and efficient provision of our website by a professional provider (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR). The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary to enable delivery of the website to the user’s computer. For this purpose, the IP address of the user must remain stored for the duration of the session. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the technically error-free presentation and optimization of his website – for this purpose, the server log files must be recorded.

The storage in log files is done to ensure the functionality of the website. In addition, we use the data to optimize the website and to ensure the security of our information technology systems. We use the log data without attribution to the person of the user or other profiling in accordance with legal requirements only for statistical analysis for the purpose of operation, security and optimization of the website. However, we reserve the right to check the log data retrospectively if there is a justified suspicion of unlawful use on the basis of concrete indications. An evaluation of the data for marketing purposes does not take place in this context.

These purposes are also our legitimate interest in data processing according to Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f GDPR.

  1. Legal Basis for Data Processing

The legal basis for the temporary storage of the data and the log files is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f GDPR.

  1. Duration of Storage

The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer required to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. In the case of the collection of data for the provision of the website, this is the case when the respective session has ended.

In the case of storage of data in log files, this is the case after seven days at the latest. Storage beyond this period is possible. In this case, the IP addresses of the users are deleted or alienated, so that an assignment of the calling client is no longer possible.

  1. Possibility of objection and removal

The collection of data for the provision of the website and the storage of the data in log files is absolutely necessary for the operation of the website. Consequently, there is no possibility of objection on the part of the user.

  1. Conclusion of a commissioned processing agreement

In order to ensure data protection-compliant processing, we have concluded an order processing agreement with our hoster.

  1. SSL or TLS Encryption

For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or requests that you send to us as the site operator, this site uses SSL or TLS encryption. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from “http://” to “https://” and by the lock symbol in your browser line.

If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.

  1. Encrypted payment transactions on this website

If, after the conclusion of a contract with costs, there is an obligation to transmit your payment data to us (e.g. account number in the case of direct debit authorization), this data is required for payment processing.

Payment transactions via the common means of payment (Visa/MasterCard, direct debit) are made exclusively via an encrypted SSL or TLS connection. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from “http://” to “https://” and by the lock symbol in your browser line.

With encrypted communication, your payment data that you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.

After you have unsubscribed from the newsletter distribution list, your e-mail address will be stored by us or the newsletter service provider in a blacklist, if necessary, in order to prevent future mailings. The data from the blacklist will only be used for this purpose and will not be merged with other data. This serves both your interest and our interest in complying with legal requirements when sending newsletters (legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR).

XV. Corporate Presences

Use of corporate presences in social networks

Use of YouTube

  1. Scope of the processing of personal data

We have included YouTube videos on our website. This way we can present you interesting videos directly on our site. YouTube is a video portal that has been a subsidiary of Google LLC since 2006 (“YouTube“). The video portal is operated by Google. When you call up a page on our website that has a YouTube video embedded, your browser automatically connects to the servers of YouTube or Google. In the process, various data are transferred (depending on the settings). Google is responsible for all data processing and Google’s privacy policy therefore also applies.

In the following, we would like to explain in more detail which data is processed, why we have embedded YouTube videos and how you can manage or delete your data.

What is YouTube?

On YouTube, users can watch, rate, comment on and upload videos for free. Over the last few years, YouTube has become one of the most important social media channels in the world. In order for us to display videos on our website, YouTube provides a code snippet that we have built into our site.

Why we use YouTube-Videos on our website?

YouTube is used in the interest of an appealing presentation of our online offers. What data is stored by YouTube?

As soon as you visit one of our pages that has a YouTube video embedded, YouTube sets at least one cookie that stores your IP address and our URL. 

We use YouTube in extended privacy mode. According to YouTube, this mode means that YouTube does not store any information about visitors to this website before they watch the video. However, the disclosure of data to YouTube partners is not necessarily excluded by the extended data protection mode. Thus, YouTube – regardless of whether you watch a video – establishes a connection to the Google DoubleClick network. As soon as you start a YouTube video on this website, a connection to YouTube’s servers is established. This tells the YouTube server which of our pages you have visited.

If you are logged into your YouTube account, YouTube can usually assign your interactions and surfing behavior on our website to your personal profile using cookies. This includes data such as session duration, bounce rate, approximate location, technical information such as browser type, screen resolution or your internet provider. Other data may include contact details, any ratings, sharing of content via social media or adding to your favorites on YouTube. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account.

If you are not signed in to a Google Account or YouTube account, Google stores data with a unique identifier associated with your device, browser, or app. For example, your preferred language setting is retained. But a lot of interaction data can’t be stored because fewer cookies are set.

Furthermore, YouTube may store various cookies on your terminal device after starting a video. These cookies allow YouTube to obtain information about visitors to this website. This information is used, among other things, to collect video statistics, improve the user experience, and prevent fraud attempts. Cookies remain on your terminal device until you delete them.

If necessary, further data processing operations may be triggered after the start of a YouTube video, over which we have no control.

You can find more information about data protection at YouTube in their privacy policy at: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=de.

  1. Purpose of the processing of data

The processing of users’ personal data by YouTube enables us to analyze the performance of our advertising on YouTube and the interactions with YouTube users. By evaluating the data obtained, we are able to compile information about the use of the individual components of our offer. This helps us to constantly improve our advertising measures.

  1. Lega basis of data processing 

The legal basis for the processing of the users’ personal data is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f GDPR. Our legitimate interest here lies in the purposes of data processing mentioned under 2. If a corresponding consent was requested, the processing is based exclusively on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR; the consent can be revoked at any time.

  1. Duration of processing

The data that YouTube receives from you and processes is stored on Google servers. Most of these servers are located in the USA. You can see exactly where Google data centers are located at https://www.google.com/about/datacenters/inside/locations/?hl=de. Your data is distributed across the servers. Thus, the data can be retrieved more quickly and is better protected against manipulation.

Google stores the collected data for different lengths of time. Some data you can delete at any time, others are automatically deleted after a limited time, and still others are stored by Google for a longer period of time. Some data (such as items from “My Activity”, photos or documents, products) stored in your Google Account will remain stored until you delete it. Even if you are not signed into a Google account, you can delete some data associated with your device, browser, or app.

  1. Possibility of objection and elimination

Basically, you can delete data in Google Account manually. With the automatic deletion function of location and activity data introduced in 2019, information is stored depending on your decision – either 3 or 18 months and then deleted.

Whether you have a Google account or not, you can configure your browser to delete or disable cookies from Google. Depending on which browser you use, this works in different ways. 

If you generally do not want cookies, you can set up your browser so that it always informs you when a cookie is to be set. This way, you can decide for each individual cookie whether you allow it or not. Since YouTube is a subsidiary of Google, there is a common privacy policy. If you want to learn more about how your data is handled, we recommend the privacy policy at https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=de.

Each Google Ads customer receives a different cookie. The cookies cannot be tracked across Google Ads customers’ websites. The information obtained using the conversion cookie is used to create conversion statistics for Google Ads customers who have opted in to conversion tracking. The clients learn the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a page tagged with a conversion tracking tag. However, they do not receive information that personally identifies users. If you do not wish to participate in the tracking, you can object to this use by easily deactivating the Google conversion tracking cookie via your internet browser under user settings. You will then not be included in the conversion tracking statistics.
