2. Personal data, purpose of processing and legal basis
This data privacy declaration explains to you the nature, scope and purpose of the collection and use of personal data in the use of our website and electronic communication with us.
The use of our website is generally possible without providing personal data. The provision of personal data is voluntary.
Personal data are all information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person ('data subject'). An identifiable natural person is one who can be identified directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or one or more special features that express the identity of that natural person.
The purpose of the processing of data on our website is to operate a website with information about our range of services and about us.
Personal data is processed on our website if this is necessary in these cases:
/ for the use of the website (legal basis: Article 6 (1), 1st sentence a) and/or Article 6 (1), 1st sentence b) Basic Data Protection Regulation),
/ to protect our interest in improving user experience, promoting our services or maintaining security of use (legal basis: Article 6 (1) sentence 1 f) Basic Data Protection Regulation),

/ for the conclusion and implementation of a contract (legal basis: Article 6 (1), first sentence a) and/or b) Basic Data Protection Regulation) and/or
/ to fulfil a legal obligation to which we are subject (e.g. tax regulations).
Further details on the processing of data can be found below under the corresponding headings.
a. Access data/server log files
When you visit our website, the servers automatically store the information that your browser sends, so-called server log files. The information includes
/ Name of the accessed website,
/ Date and time of retrieval,
/ Notification of successful retrieval,
/ Browser type and version,
/ Operating system of the user,
/ Referrer URL,
/ IP address and
The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary to display the website on your terminal. To do this, the IP address must remain stored for the duration of the session. This data is not merged with other data sources. The information is used exclusively for the analysis and maintenance of the technical operation of the servers and the network. The legal basis for this is Article 6 (1), 1st sentence f) Data Protection Regulation.
Some of the cookies used are so-called session cookies. They are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your device until you delete them.
Most cookies contain a unique identifier, the so-called cookie ID. This sequence of characters means that it is possible to assign which servers and Internet pages were called up by the browser when the cookie was saved. This makes it possible to distinguish the browser from browsers with other cookies, and each browser can be identified and recognised by its unique cookie ID. Cookies can also be used on websites to collect information about user activity, such as the number of unique visitors to a page per month.
This functionality of cookies is used on many websites and servers to provide many of the basic services that we also use online.
A cookie is also used when you log in - here with us when registering as a business customer - so that later no further login is required because the browser is recognized.
During all these processes, information is stored in cookies to enable the corresponding functions. The legal basis for this is Article 6(1)(f) Basic Regulation on data protection.
Cookies are also used to provide ads relevant to users, to improve reports on campaign performance or to prevent a user from seeing the same ads more than once. You will find further explanations of the cookies we use there: https://www.zeron.de/#cmpscreen. The legal basis for this is Article 6(1)(f) Basic Regulation on data protection.
You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and only allow cookies in individual cases, exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or generally and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. You can manage the cookies we use there: https://www.zeron.de/#cmpscreencustom
When cookies are deactivated, the functionality of this website may be limited.
c. Contact via e-mail
If you send us enquiries by e-mail, your details from the e-mail, including the contact data you have provided there, will be processed for the purpose of processing the enquiry and in the event of follow-up questions. The legal basis for this is Article 6(1), first sentence a) and/or Article 6(1), first sentence b) of the Basic Data Protection Regulation. In addition, we have a legitimate interest in processing this data in order to prevent misuse and ensure the security of our system; the legal basis is Article 6 paragraph 1 sentence 1 f) Basic Data Protection Regulation.
d. Contact form
If you send us enquiries using the contact form, your details from the enquiry form, including your IP address and the contact data you have provided in the form, will be processed for the purpose of processing the enquiry and in the event of follow-up questions.

If you enter your e-mail address for our newsletter, you will receive a newsletter from us approximately every three to four months with information about new customers, zeron projects and personnel changes.
After your registration with your e-mail address, you will receive a message from us to this address. In this e-mail you will be asked to confirm your registration by clicking on a link. This is necessary to prevent unauthorized persons from registering your e-mail address in our newsletter distribution list without your consent. To prove this registration process, it is logged by storing the time of registration and confirmation as well as the IP addresses, so-called double opt-in procedures. In addition, we process your e-mail address to send the newsletter. E-mails are sent via the Newsletter2Go service. We have concluded an order processing contract with our service provider.
The legal basis for this is Article 6 paragraph 1 sentence 1 a) and/or paragraph 1 sentence 1 b) of the Basic Data Protection Regulation. In addition, we have a legitimate interest in processing this data in order to prevent misuse and ensure the security of our system; the legal basis is Article 6 paragraph 1 sentence 1 f) Basic Data Protection Regulation.
You can unsubscribe at any time via a link and cancel the newsletter subscription, which we attach to every e-mail (opt-out). You can therefore revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future.
f. Google Analytics
Our website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (hereinafter: "Google"). Google is certified under the US- EU data protection agreement "Privacy Shield" (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active) and thus commits itself to comply with EU data protection regulations. In addition, we have entered into an order processing agreement with Google. This is a contract in which Google undertakes to protect our users' data, to process it on our behalf in accordance with our data protection regulations and, in particular, not to pass it on to third parties.
Google Analytics uses "cookies", which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site (see b above). The information generated by the cookie about your use of the site is generally transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. The IP address transmitted by your browser in the context of Google Analytics is not merged with other Google data.
However, IP anonymisation is activated on our website. Your IP address will thus be previously reduced by Google within member states of the European Union or in other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On our behalf, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide us with other services relating to website and Internet use. The legal basis for this is Article 6(1), 1st sentence f) Basic Data Protection Regulation
g. Integration of third-party services and content (Google Maps, RSS feeds, graphics from other websites, videos from YouTube, etc.)
We partly integrate the following services and contents of third parties:

h. Social media presence on Facebook
On our website at www.zeron.de we do not use social media plugins, but only simple links (so-called hyperlinks) to our social media presence. When you visit our website, no direct data processing in the direction of the social media platforms takes place.
However, if you visit the social media platforms and our profiles there, we will draw your attention to the following:
The website at www.facebook.com is operated by Facebook Ireland Ltd, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland ("Facebook").

Personal data will be communicated to the following categories of recipients:
To our employees and to contractors such as identification service providers, software developers, server hosters, newsletter senders, customer support and web analytics services.
Furthermore, your personal data will not be passed on to third parties without your express consent, unless we are legally obliged to do so or the passing on of data is absolutely necessary for the performance of a contractual relationship.
4. Duration of storage
We delete your personal data immediately after they have been used for the intended purpose. Stored server log files and IP addresses will be deleted after 90 days at the latest.
In the case of the collection of data for the provision of the website, this is the case when the respective session has ended. Session cookies are therefore automatically deleted at the end of the session.
Cookies are stored on your terminal and you have control over the use and deletion of cookies, see above.
We process your data from your contact requests via e-mail and contact form until your request has been completely processed and settled. The information is then deleted. Please note, however, that due to a legal transaction with you for certain data, commercial and tax retention obligations of at least six (§ 257 HGB) or ten (§147 AO) may exist, which may also apply to the content of contact inquiries and e-mails.
Newsletter subscription data will be processed for the duration of your subscription and deleted after termination.
We have preset a deletion cycle of 14 months for Google Analytics data.
If you apply online, we will delete your personal data and applications six months after completion of the application process.
In addition, it is checked every year whether data can be deleted. This is the case when the purpose of processing and the requirements of the legal basis for processing have ceased to apply and there is no longer a legal obligation to preserve the data.
