III.    Personal data that we automatically process when you visit our website

1. Server logfiles and technically necessary cookies
Each time you access our website, information is automatically retrieved and processed by our web server (e.g. information about your browser type and the version used as well as about your operating system, your IP address, host name, date and time of access, previously visited website from which you reached us (so-called http-referrer)). In addition, we use cookies to be able to offer our website and its functions (e.g., our website stores the session cookie "PHPSESSID", which enables us to prevent misuse of our website).

The processing of this data is technically necessary in order to deliver our website to your browser and to display content (legal basis is Art. 6 (1) lit. b GDPR). We also use the data contained in the server log files to optimise our website, to ensure the security of our information technology systems and for abuse prevention (legal basis is Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR). Personal data in log files (e.g., your IP address) are usually deleted or anonymised after 7 days, unless security incidents or other justified suspicions against users require longer data storage until the incident has been clarified. Data in session cookies are automatically deleted after the end of the corresponding session.

2. Generation of usage statistics
We use tools on our website to generate usage statistics. This enables us to optimise our website and make it more user-friendly and to identify problems with the use of our website (legal basis is Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR). For this purpose, we process, among other things, your IP address, randomly generated IDs and the subpages you visit on our website as well as the date, duration and time of the visit. No data is transferred to third parties or abroad. Individual user behaviour through the use of cookies is only tracked with your express consent (legal basis is Art. 6 (1) lit. a GDPR).

IV.    Personal data that we collect when you use certain functionalities

1. Newsletter
If Inheco offers the option of subscribing to a newsletter, Inheco must process the personal data required for this purpose. This concerns data that you provide when registering for the newsletter (e.g., names, e-mail addresses, etc.), and data that is collected automatically (e.g., IP addresses, date and time of registration, opening rates, etc.). In addition to providing the newsletter, Inheco also processes this data in order to prevent and investigate misuse, to verify e-mail addresses entered and to improve the newsletter and the communication with the customer. The processing of the data is based on your consent (legal basis is Art. 6 (1) lit. a GDPR). Data that is required for the delivery of the newsletter (e.g., your e-mail address) remains stored until you unsubscribe from the newsletter. In addition to the possibility of declaring the withdrawal of your consent to Inheco by e-mail (see under VII.), you can also unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time using the unsubscribe button in the newsletter itself.

2. Contacting Inheco, order forms, registration as a customer
Inheco offers on its website the possibility to send a message via a contact form. In addition, Inheco provides other specific forms on its website, e.g., for ordering products, requesting test devices, for troubleshooting purposes, etc. For this purpose, Inheco processes the information provided by the customer in the respective form as well as further data such as date and time of the request or the IP address of the sender. If the respective form requires the user's consent, the legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 (1) lit. a GDPR. Otherwise, the personal data will only be processed for the purpose of processing and executing the respective request (legal basis is Art. 6 (1) lit. b GDPR) as well as for the protection against and the investigation of misuse and IT security incidents or if Inheco asserts other legitimate interests such as the optimisation of products or their marketing (legal basis is Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR). Your personal data will only be stored for as long as is necessary for the processing and execution of the request or as long as statutory retention obligations require so. 

In addition to contact requests, you also have the option of registering as a customer on our website. The statements made above regarding the legal basis and duration of data processing apply accordingly. The personal data processed for this purpose will remain stored until you delete your customer account with Inheco.

3. Applying for a job with Inheco
We use the external service provider Personio to receive and evaluate applications. Your personal data will be transmitted to Personio and processed by Personio. You also have the option of submitting your application to us by e-mail. For the purposes of central application management, we will also pass on data received by e-mail to our service provider Personio. We process your personal data only for the purpose of processing the application and, in the event of an employment, for the subsequent onboarding process (legal basis is Art. 6 (1) lit. b GDPR and § 26 para. 1 BDSG) or for the protection of abuse, in order to be able to better assign any queries regarding to the job application or to be able to defend or assert legal claims against or on the part of Inheco (legal basis in each case is Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR). Also in the event of rejection, your personal data will continue to be stored for up to six months after the application process for these purposes.

4. Use of video plugins
Videos embedded on our website are stored on servers of third parties (currently: Vimeo) and are retrieved from there. If you click on the play button of a video, personal data about you may be transmitted to this service provider (e.g. your IP address or other identifiers) (legal basis is Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR).

V.   Recipients of your personal data

For the hosting of our site and for the provision of certain functionalities (e.g., the embedding of videos or for the application process), we use the services of third parties (e.g., hosting providers, video platforms such as Vimeo, application platforms such as Personio), which process personal data on our behalf. Through appropriate contracts with the service providers, we ensure that they only process data on our instructions. Data is not transferred to service providers in countries outside the EU/EEA.

VI.    Duration of the data processing

Unless otherwise stated in this Privacy Policy, we will only process your personal data for as long as is necessary for the specific processing purposes or other legitimate interests of Inheco (e.g., for the prevention and detection of misuse of the services and of criminal offences, or for the defense or assertion of legal claims) or as long as legal retention obligations require so. Subsequently, your personal data will either be deleted or anonymised.

VII.    Your rights

As a data subject within the meaning of the GDPR, you are entitled to the rights described in Art. 15 ff.. To assert your rights, you can either contact us at the above address or directly by e-mail:
In particular, under the conditions of the GDPR, you have the right to access information about the personal data processed about you, as well as the right to rectification, erasure and restriction of the processing of your personal data. For personal data provided by you, you also have the right to receive it in a structured, common and machine-readable format, as well as the right to transfer it to another controller.
In addition, you can object to data processing based on our legitimate interests (the legal basis is then Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR) under the conditions of the GDPR or withdraw your consent to the processing of personal data at any time with effect for the future (the legal basis is then Art. 6 (1) lit. a GDPR). Furthermore, you can contact the Bavarian State Office for Data Protection Supervision (Bayerisches Landesamt für Datenschutzaufsicht, BayLDA) with complaints at any time. If we transfer personal data to countries outside the EU/EEA, you may request to be informed about the appropriate safeguards pursuant to Art. 46 of the GDPR and request corresponding copies of the contracts.
Finally, you have the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing - including profiling - which produces legal effects concerning you or similarly significantly affects you. Inheco does not use such procedures.
