Data protection notice
The person responsible for data processing is:
ZESTRON Europe ... a Business Division of Dr. O.K. Wack Chemie GmbH
Thank you for your interest in our website. The protection of your privacy is very important to us. Below we inform you in detail about how we handle your data.
1. Access data and hosting
You can visit our websites without providing any personal information. Each time you access a website, the web server only automatically saves a so-called server log file, which contains, for example, the name of the requested file, your IP address, the date and time of the access, the amount of data transferred and the requesting provider (access data) and documents the access. This access data is evaluated solely for the purpose of ensuring trouble-free operation of the site and improving our services. This serves to protect our legitimate interests in the correct presentation of our offer, which outweigh our interests in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f DSGVO. All access data is deleted at the latest seven days after the end of your visit to the site.
2. Data processing for contacting and communicating with customers
We collect personal data if you voluntarily provide it when contacting us (e.g. via contact form or e-mail). Mandatory fields are marked as such because in these cases we absolutely need the data to process your contact and you cannot send the contact without providing it. Which data is collected can be seen from the respective input forms. We use the data you provide to process your enquiries in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. b DSGVO. After complete processing of your customer enquiry, your data will be deleted unless you have expressly consented to further use of your data in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. a DSGVO or we reserve the right to use data beyond this, which is permitted by law and about which we inform you in this declaration.

After complete processing of your customer enquiry, your data will be restricted for further processing and deleted after expiry of the retention periods under tax and commercial law in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. c DSGVO, unless you have expressly consented to further use of your data in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a DSGVO or we reserve the right to use data beyond this, which is permitted by law and about which we inform you in this declaration.
3. Cookies and other technologies
In order to make visiting our website attractive and to enable the use of certain functions, we use technologies including so-called cookies on various pages. Cookies are small text files that are automatically stored on your terminal device. Some of the cookies we use are deleted at the end of the browser session, i.e. after you close your browser (so-called session cookies). Other cookies remain on your end device and enable us to recognise your browser the next time you visit (persistent cookies).
Protection of the privacy of terminal equipment
When using our online offer, we use absolutely necessary technologies in order to be able to provide the expressly requested telemedia service. The storage of information in your terminal device or access to information that is already stored in your terminal device does not require consent in this respect.
For functions that are not absolutely necessary, the storage of information in your terminal device or access to information that is already stored in your terminal device requires your consent. Please note that if you do not give your consent, parts of the website may not be available for unrestricted use. Any consent you may have given will remain valid until you adjust or reset the respective settings in your end device.
Any downstream data processing through cookies and other technologies
We use such technologies that are mandatory for the use of certain functions of our website (e.g. preference settings of the website). Through these technologies, IP address, time of visit, device and browser information as well as information on your use of our website (e.g. information on your preferences) are collected and processed. Within the framework of a balancing of interests, this serves overriding legitimate interests in an optimised presentation of our offer in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f DSGVO.

4. Use of Cooies and other technologies for web analysis and advertising purposes
4.1 Use of Google services for web analysis and advertising purposes
For advertising purposes in Google search results as well as on third-party websites, the so-called Google Remarketing Cookie is set when you visit our website, which automatically enables interest-based advertising by collecting and processing data (IP address, time of visit, device and browser information as well as information on your use of our website) and by means of a pseudonymous CookieID and on the basis of the pages you visit. Any further data processing will only take place if you have activated the setting
"personalised advertising" setting in your Google account. In this case, if you are logged in to Google while visiting our website, Google will use your data together with Google Analytics data to create and define target group lists for cross-device remarketing.
For website analysis and event tracking, we measure your subsequent usage behaviour via Google Ads Conversion Tracking if you have reached our website via an advertisement from Google Ads. For this purpose, cookies may be used and data (IP address, time of visit, device and browser information as well as information about your use of our website based on events specified by us, such as visiting a website or subscribing to a newsletter) may be collected, from which usage profiles are created using pseudonyms.
4.2 Use of Microsoft Clarity
We use the "Clarity" service of the Microsoft Corporation. Clarity enables an analysis of the use of our website. This creates a log of mouse movements and clicks with the intention of deriving potential improvements for the website. The information collected is transmitted to Clarity and stored there. According to Microsoft, this can also be used for advertising purposes.
Information on Clarity: https://clarity.microsoft.com
Possibility of objection (opt-out): https://choice.microsoft.com
4.3 Use of Matomo
This website uses the open source web analytics service Matomo. Matomo uses so-called "cookies". These are text files that are stored on your computer and enable an analysis of your use of the website. For this purpose, the information generated by the cookie about the use of this website is stored on our server. The IP address is anonymised before storage.
a) This website uses the web analysis service Matomo to analyse and regularly improve the use of our website. The statistics obtained enable us to improve our offer and make it more interesting for you as a user. The legal basis for the use of Matomo is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f EU-DSGVO.
