2. General notes and mandatory information

Data protection

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 data protection declaration.

When you use this website, various personal data are collected. Personal data is data with 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.

We would like to point out that data transmission on the Internet (e.g. when communicating by e-mail) can have security gaps. Complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.

Note on the responsible party
The responsible party for data processing on this website is:

Nowega GmbH
Anton-Bruchausen-Strasse 4
48147 Münster

Phone: +49 251 60998-0
E-mail: info@nowega.de

The responsible party is the party which alone or jointly with others determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data (e.g. names, e-mail addresses or similar).

Storage period
Unless a more specific storage period has been stated within this privacy policy, your personal data will remain with us until the purpose for processing the data no longer applies. If you assert a legitimate request for deletion or revoke consent for data processing, your data will be deleted unless we have other legally permissible reasons for storing your personal data (e.g. retention periods under tax or commercial law); in the latter case, the data will be deleted after these reasons no longer apply.

General information on the legal basis for data processing on this website
If you have consented to data processing, we process your personal data on the basis of Art. 6 (1) lit. a GDPR or Art. 9 (2) lit. a GDPR, if special categories of data are processed according to Art. 9 (1) GDPR. In the case of explicit consent to the transfer of personal data to third countries, the data processing is also based on Art. 49 (1) a GDPR. If you have consented to the storage of cookies or to the access to information in your terminal device (e.g. via device fingerprinting), the data processing is additionally carried out on the basis of Section 25 (1) TTDSG. The consent can be revoked at any time. If your data is required for the performance of a contract or for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, we process your data on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR. Furthermore, if your data is required for the fulfillment of a legal obligation, we process it on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c DSGVO. Furthermore, the data processing may be carried out on the basis of our legitimate interest according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. Information about the relevant legal basis in each individual case is provided in the following paragraphs of this privacy policy.

Note on the data transfer to the USA and other third countries
Among other things, we use tools from companies based in the USA or other third countries that are not secure under data protection law. If these tools are active, your personal data may be transferred to these third countries and processed there. We would like to point out that no level of data protection comparable to that in the EU can be guaranteed in these countries. For example, US companies are obliged to hand over personal data to security authorities without you as a data subject being able to take legal action against this. It can therefore not be ruled out that US authorities (e.g. intelligence services) process, evaluate and permanently store your data located on US servers for monitoring purposes. We have no influence on these processing activities.

Revocation of your consent to data processing
Many data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. You can revoke consent you have already given at any time. For this purpose, an informal communication by e-mail to us is sufficient. The legality of the data processing carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

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(1)(e) or (f) GDPR, you have the right to object to the processing of your personal data at any time for reasons relating to 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 reasons for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves the purpose of asserting, exercising or defending legal claims (objection under Article 21(1) GDPR).

If your personal data 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, your personal data will subsequently no longer be used for the purpose of direct marketing (objection pursuant to Article 21 (2) GDPR).

Right of complaint to the competent supervisory authority
In the event of violations of the GDPR, data subjects have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of their habitual residence, their place of work or the place of the alleged violation. The right of appeal is without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy.

Right to data portibility
You have the right to have data that we process automatically on the basis of your consent or in performance of a contract handed over to you or to a third party in a common, machine-readable format. If you request the direct transfer of the data to another responsible party, this will only be done insofar as it is technically feasible.

SSl or TLS encryptionFor 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.

Information, blocking, deletion and correction
Within the framework of the applicable legal provisions, you have the right  to free information about your stored personal data, its origin and recipient and the purpose of data processing and, if necessary, a right to correction, blocking or deletion of this data at any time. For this purpose, as well as for further questions on the subject of personal data, you can contact us at any time at the address given in the imprint.

Right to restriction of processing
You have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data. To do this, you can contact us at any time at the address given in the imprint. The right to restriction of processing exists in the following cases:

- If you dispute the accuracy of your personal data stored by us, we usually need time to verify this. For the duration of the verification, you have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data.

- If the processing of your personal data has happened / is happening unlawfully, you can request the restriction of data processing instead of deletion.

- If we no longer need your personal data, but you need it to exercise, defend or assert legal claims, you have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data instead of erasure.

- If you have lodged an objection pursuant to Art. 21 (1) GDPR, a balancing of your and our interests must be carried out. As long as it has not yet been determined whose interests prevail, you have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data. If you have restricted the processing of your personal data, this data may - apart from being stored - only be processed with your consent or for the assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of an important public interest of the European Union or a Member State.

Objection to advertising emails
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.

If you follow a link to a third party website outside our responsibility, please be aware that these websites have their own privacy policies and that we do not accept any responsibility or liability for these policies. Please review these privacy policies before voluntarily providing any personal information to these websites.

Only when you click on an external link will data be transferred to the link destination, such as your IP address, our web address (as the starting point from where you came), URL address of the target page, date and time of the retrieval as well as operating system and browser version of your end device. This data is usually mandatory for the display of web pages on the Internet via your browser.

Individual links may involve a data transfer to non-European countries. As a result, it may be possible that foreign third parties (companies, authorities) receive the above-mentioned connection data. If you do not want the aforementioned data to be transferred to the link destination or to the aforementioned third parties or to be accessed by others, do not click on the link.

The legal basis for the processing of your personal data when clicking on external links is basically your consent according to Art. 6 para. 1 p.1 lit. a) GDPR.

5. Plugins and tools

YouTube
On this website we provide information, whereby we also use videos on YouTube, which we have published under our company account there.

These videos are embedded in a way that only a preview image of the video can be seen and no cookies are set by YouTube (or the operator Google) (youtube-nocookie.com). Only when you click on the preview image of the YouTube video, the video is loaded and playable. We point out that you use the services offered on our YouTube presence and their functions on your own responsibility. This applies in particular to the use of the interactive functions (e.g. sharing, rating or direct messages between us and you). If you are logged into your YouTube account during your visit, Google can associate your website visit with this account. This information is transmitted directly to Google and stored there. If you perform an action on our YouTube corporate presence (e.g. comments, posts, likes, etc.), you may thereby make personal data (e.g. clear name or photo of your user profile) public. Our corporate presence in social networks is used for communication and information exchange with (potential) customers. In particular, we use the corporate presence to provide information about products and services.

We ourselves, as the operator of our YouTube presence, also collect and process the following personal data of our profile visitors, for example:
- Likes, sharing of videos (with or without quote addition) and comments on our profiles or on activities we engage in on other profiles, each with date, time and name of your own account.
- Content from comments or direct messages, also with date, time and name of your own account.

Purpose and legal basis
Our social media presences are intended to ensure the broadest possible presence on the Internet. This is a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) lit. f) GDPR. The analysis processes initiated by the social networks may be based on deviating legal bases to be specified by the operators of the social networks, e.g. consent within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) a) GDPR.

Storage period
The data collected directly by us via the social media presence is deleted from our systems as soon as the purpose for storing it no longer applies, you request us to delete it, revoke your consent to store it, or the purpose for storing the data no longer applies. Stored cookies remain on your terminal device until you delete them. Mandatory legal provisions - in particular retention periods - remain unaffected.

We have no influence on the storage period of your data, which is stored by the operators of social networks for their own purposes. For details, please contact the operators of the social networks directly (e.g. in their privacy policy, see below).

You can object to the processing of your personal data that we collect in the course of your use of our YouTube corporate presence at any time and assert data subject rights.

The operator of the YouTube video platform is YouTube, LLC, which is a subsidiary of Google LLC. With the creation of our corporate presence on YouTube, we have concluded our contract with Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, D04 E5W5, Dublin, Ireland. The YouTube order processing conditions apply (https://www.youtube.com/t/terms_dataprocessing).

The operator of the YouTube platform bases a data transfer to the USA on the standard contractual clauses of the EU Commission.
