Dear website visitors,
With this data protection declaration, we would like to inform you in a general, transparent and understandable way how we guarantee the handling of your personal data in our company in accordance with the Basic Data Protection Regulation (DS-GVO).
1) The use of our website https://www.innovationmecom.de is basically possible without any indication of personal data (e.g. first name, surname etc.). However, if you (the person concerned) contact us and wish to receive information about a service, personal data may be required.
If the processing of personal data is necessary, e.g. for an enquiry via our contact form, we will generally obtain your consent for data processing in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. a DS-GVO.
Alternatively, you can contact us by telephone, for example.
Data processing always takes place in accordance with the Basic Data Protection Ordinance. Our legal basis for data processing is Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f DS-GVO. The legitimate interest of the person responsible is for the purposes listed above.
2. Collection of general data (log files)
a) When you visit our website, information is automatically sent 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 automated deletion:
– The Internet protocol address (IP address) of the requesting computer,
– Date and time of access,
– Name and URL of the retrieved file,
– the previously visited website (so-called referrer),
– browser used and, if applicable, the operating system of your computer,
– the name of your Internet service provider, and
– other similar data and information used to avert dangers in the event of attacks on our information technology systems
b) The data mentioned under point 2 a) 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 and
– for other administrative purposes.
The legal basis for this data processing results from Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f DS-GVO. Our legitimate interest is derived from the purposes for data collection mentioned under item 2 b). In no case do we use the collected data for the purpose of drawing conclusions about your person.
We process personal data of the participants in order to carry out sweepstakes. Depending on the type of sweepstakes, a valid e-mail address, first name, last name, date of birth and gender must be provided for this purpose. In individual cases, a telephone number must also be provided if contact is required at short notice (e.g. if concert tickets can be won). If prizes are sent by post or parcel service, we will also ask for your postal address to enable us to send the prizes.
We collect this data to determine whether you are eligible to participate and to determine and notify the winners by e-mail. If you do not provide us with the above-mentioned data, it will not be possible for you to participate in the competition or to contact us regarding notification of a prize. Your address data will be used exclusively for sending prizes. Without this data, it is not possible to send the prizes by post.
As a matter of principle, your data will not be passed on to third parties, unless the transfer is necessary for the implementation of the respective competition or for the dispatch of prizes and there is a data protection law transfer authorization. If we involve partner companies or service providers in the implementation or carry out actions jointly with them, we conclude the necessary agreements by way of commissioned processing pursuant to Art. 28 DS-GVO or joint responsibility pursuant to Art. 26 DS-GVO.
If we conduct sweepstakes with partners or the respective participating cooperation partner who provides the prizes arranges the shipment on its own responsibility, personal data such as the address data will be transmitted to the respective cooperation partner for a specific purpose.
If we commission service providers to carry out sweepstakes by way of order processing, we select them carefully. The data protection notices of the service providers provide further detailed information about the specific processing at the cooperation partner for the respective survey, sweepstake or promotion.
Unless you have additionally and independently given us your express permission to do so, your data will not be used for advertising purposes. If you have consented to this, you can revoke your consent at any time informally for the future via the contact details provided.
In the context of the competition, we process the data on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 b DS-GVO and transmit it to the respective cooperation partner. For statistical purposes, we anonymously evaluate how many participants have taken part in the respective sweepstakes. This evaluation does not allow any conclusions to be drawn about individual participants. The legal basis for this is our legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f DS-GVO. Advertising and newsletter dispatch are expressly carried out only on the legal basis of the consent given in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a.
We will be happy to provide you with information about the data stored about you via our specified contact options

17. General information on social media plug-ins
Our website https://www.innovationmecom.de includes browser plug-ins and links from social networks (e.g. Facebook, Youtube, Instagrim, LinkedIn, and Twitter).
These social networks are operated exclusively by third parties, some of whom are based outside the EU. Third parties may not provide you with an adequate level of privacy protection. These browser plug-ins and links are identified on our website by logos or other notices.
Our website includes the social network plug-in “facebook.com”, operated by Facebook Inc, 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”). You can recognize the Facebook plugins by the Facebook logo and the “Like” button.
If you visit a website that contains such a plugin, your browser will connect directly to the Facebook server. Facebook then transmits the content of the plugin to your browser, which in turn integrates the plugin into the website. In this way, Facebook receives information that a user with a specific IP address, namely the IP address assigned to your Internet access at the time of transmission, has visited the corresponding website. If you are logged into your Facebook account at the same time, Facebook can assign your visit to your Facebook account even if you do not click the “Like” button. If you use the plugin by clicking the “Like” button, your browser will also transmit this to Facebook and save it there. If you do not want Facebook to collect data via our website and associate it with your Facebook account, please log out of Facebook before visiting our website.
For more information about the purpose and scope of the collection, storage and use of this information by Facebook, as well as your rights in this regard and the possible settings of your Facebook account to protect your privacy, please see the Facebook Privacy Statement http://www.facebook.com/policy.php
Using YouTube plugins (videos)
Videos stored on YouTube are embedded in our web pages of our Internet presence. YouTube is a service of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. All YouTube videos on our websites have the “extended data protection mode” activated. YouTube provides this and thus assures that YouTube does not store any cookies with personal data on your computer. When you access the website and embed the videos, the IP address is transmitted. This IP address cannot be assigned unless you have registered with YouTube or another Google service or are permanently registered prior to accessing the site. As soon as you start the playback of an embedded video by clicking on it, YouTube only stores cookies on your computer that do not contain any personally identifiable data due to the extended data protection mode. These cookies can be prevented by appropriate browser settings and extensions.
You can find further information on the integration of Youtube videos on the YouTube information page.
This website uses components of the LinkedIn network. LinkedIn is a service of LinkedIn Corporation, 2029 Stierlin Court, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. The plugins of this website can be accessed via the “Share” option in the top navigation bar. The LinkedIn button of this site is indicated by a transparent “in” on a black square. Each time you visit this site that is equipped with such a component, that component will cause the browser you are using to download an appropriate representation of the LinkedIn component.
This process tells LinkedIn which specific page of our website is currently being visited. If you click on the LinkedIn “Recommend button” while logged into your LinkedIn account, you can link the content of our pages to your LinkedIn profile. This enables LinkedIn to assign the visit to our pages to your LinkedIn user account.
