Data Privacy Statement

The following privacy policy explains the extent to which we store, process, and use the personal information that we collect when you visit our website.

Who is responsible?

Responsible for this website is evrbit GmbH (Lütticher Straße 56, 50674 Cologne). You can find further information about our company and the authorized representatives in our legal notice.

What information is collected and stored?

Legal basis for information processing

In order to offer you the best possible user experience and most relevant services on our website, we store and process personal information in accordance with the following legislation:

  • Consent (Art. 6 Para. 1 a) GDPR)
  • Contract fulfillment (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b) GDPR
  • Balancing test (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit.f) GDPR)
  • Fulfillment of legal undertaking (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. c) GDPR)

We will use this terminology in connection with your inquiry, so that you can determine the extent to which we use and process your personal information.
If personal information is processed on the basis of your consent, you have the right to revoke the permission you have given us at any time.

If we process information following a balancing test, as the affected party, you have the right to revoke your consent to the processing of your personal information in accordance with Art. 21 of the GDPR.

Access Information

Every time you visit our website, personal information is recorded and processed so that we can display the content of our website on your computer or mobile device.

The IP address assigned to your device must be known so that the website can be displayed in your browser. Additional information about your device’s browser is also processed.

We are obliged, in accordance with privacy laws, to guarantee the confidentiality and integrity of personal information within our IT systems.

For this purpose, and in the interest of maintaining integrity, the following data is recorded on the basis of a balancing test:

  • IP address of the device (for a maximum of 7 days)
  • Operating system of the device
  • Browser version of the device
  • Name of the requested file
  • Date and time of the request
  • Volume of data transmitted
  • The referring URL

The IP address is deleted from all systems and software procedures used to run this website after a maximum of seven days. Any reference to an individual person can then no longer be made on the basis of the remaining data..

Information is also used to detect errors on the website – as well as to troubleshoot and rectify problems. The collection of the 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. There is consequently no possibility for the user to object.

Local Storage & Cookies

Some elements of our website require that we store information in local storage

  • “user_cookie_consent“ only contains the value “true”. This value is used to recognize whether the user has clicked “allow” on the data protection banner.
  • „yana_id“ stores localization data in local storage so we do not count the hits twice. This temporary localization data is automatically deleted from the server after 5 minutes of inactivity.

The storage of data in local storage therefore only enables functionalities that contribute to a positive user experience on our website. We do not set cookies with personal data without your consent.

All of the aforementioned data storage is mandatory for the operation of our website. Cookies that are not absolutely necessary are only used with your consent. In these cases, you will see a corresponding consent link on the website.

You have the option of preventing the setting of cookies by making the appropriate settings in your browser. However, we would like to point out that the use of our website may then only be possible to a limited extent. Cookies do not install or start any programs or other applications on your computer.

Google Webfonts

Our website uses Google Fonts, a service provided by Google. This means that fonts from Google servers are loaded to enable the optimum display of our website. Data processing follows a balancing test, where our goal is to make the design of our website as attractive as possible.

The fonts are loaded from Google servers, which are normally located in the USA. Google provides for an adequate level of privacy and is certified under Privacy Shield frameworks. Our certifications can be viewed on the Privacy Shield list.

Purposes of processing personal data

We process the aforementioned data for the operation of our website and for the fulfillment of contractual obligations towards our customers or to protect our legitimate interests.

For inquiries from you outside of an active customer relationship, we process the data for the purposes of sales and advertising. You can object to the use of your personal data for advertising purposes at any time.

Optional Information

If you have already provided personal information voluntarily (e.g., in the forms), which is not necessary for contractual obligations, then we will store and process your data under the justifiable assumption that this is in your interests.

Data receipt/transmission

Generally, the information you provide us will not be passed on to third parties. In particular, your information will not be forwarded to third parties for their own marketing and advertising purposes.

We may, however, employ external service providers to operate and maintain this website or to manage other products and services for us. It is possible that such a third-party service provider receives or becomes aware of certain personal information. We select our service providers carefully – particularly with regard to privacy and security –and we take all possible precautions as required by law to ensure that data processing activity is legal and authorized.

Data processing outside the European Union

Personal data processing outside the European Union is covered by the points as outlined above in this privacy statement.

You have the right to obtain information about the personal data collected. You are entitled to ask about this at any time.

For information requests not made in writing, we may ask you to provide proof of identity.

You also have a legal right to have any stored data that concerns your person amended or deleted, or to limit the extent of processing.

Furthermore, you have the right to object to the processing of personal data you have provided within the scope of the regulations. The right to data portability is also covered within the framework of the Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

Data deletion

Personal data is deleted as soon as there is no further purpose for which the personal data needs to be stored. It may be necessary to continue storing data, particularly if it is still required for contractual commitments, to clarify warranty or guarantee claims, and for making payments or defending against such claims. If a deletion should be prevented by the legal obligation to retain data, the data will only be deleted upon expiry of the legal obligation to retain it.
