Privacy Policy

Thank you for visiting our website and for your interest in Novaled GmbH. The protection and safety of our users’ personal information is very important to us. It is for this reason that we have designed our website and business processes in such a way that as little personal information as possible is generated or processed. We adhere to the legal regulations pertaining to the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG), Telemedia Act (TMG) and other legal regulations relating to data protection as a matter of course.

Scope of data generation and storage

Access data/ server log files – Piwik:
When you visit our website or download data from our web pages, some information about you is collected and stored in a protocol file; this information is then processed by us. It includes but is not limited to:

  •  browser type and version,
  •  operating system used,
  •  previously visited website via which you came to our website (Referrer URL),
  •  (currently) visited webpage,
  •  date and time you accessed our site,
  •  your encrypted Internet Protocol (IP) address.

To do this we use Piwik web analytics software. Piwik uses cookies which enable us to analyse the traffic on our website. For this purpose, all user information generated by the cookies (including your encrypted IP-address) is transmitted to our server and stored there for purposes of analysing user behaviour. This information is then used by us to optimise the website. During that process, your IP-address is promptly encrypted so that your identity as a user remains anonymous to us. If you do not agree with the storage and evaluation of data generated from your visit, you may express your objection to this data storage and use at any time with a mouse-click as explained below. In that case, a so-called opt-out-cookie is installed on your browser, meaning that no data will be generated by Piwik about your session. Caution: If you delete your cookies, this means that even the opt-out-cookie will be deleted and you will need to activate it again if required.

There is a provision for you to get in touch with us by email on our website and to apply for a vacant job position. In such a case, we store personal information provided by the user for purposes of establishing contact. Similarly, no comparison is made between data generated in this manner and data possibly generated by other components of our website.

Links to websites of third parties and other operators
You will be able to find links to other websites on our web pages (e.g. Facebook, Xing, LinkedIn), and they are meant to provide you with further information. If you click those links, you will be directed outside our web pages. Novaled GmbH does not have any influence over those websites or their privacy policies.

Information/ revocation/ deletion
You have the right, upon request, to obtain information free of charge on your stored data. Furthermore, you have the right to demand the correction of incorrect data, as well as the blockage and deletion of your personal data, provided there is no legal obligation to keep such data. You may also revoke the consent you have given us to collect and use that data at any time and without the need to give a reason.
