1. Information on the collection of personal data

(1) Below we inform you about the processing of personal data when using our website. Personal data includes all data that can be personally related to you, e.g., name, address, email addresses, user behavior.

(2) The controller pursuant to Article 4(7) of the General Date Protection Regulation (GDPR) is:

Lactoprot Deutschland GmbH

(3) When you contact us via email, the data you provide (your email address, and if applicable, your name and telephone number) will be stored by us to answer your questions. The processing of these data is based on Article 6(1)(b) of the GDPR if your inquiry is related to the fulfillment of a contract or is necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures. In all other cases, the processing is based on our legitimate interest in the effective handling of inquiries directed to us pursuant to Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR or on your consent pursuant to Article 6(1)(a) of the GDPR if this has been requested.
The data from your contact will remain with us until you request deletion, revoke your consent to storage, or the purpose for data storage no longer applies (e.g., after your inquiry has been processed or a contract has been completed). Mandatory statutory provisions, especially retention periods, remain unaffected.

(4) We use service providers who work exclusively on our behalf and under our instructions to provide the offered service, e.g., hosting our systems or operating our IT. These have been carefully selected by us and are regularly monitored.
Your data will generally only be stored by us for as long as they are needed for the respective purposes underlying the processing. Beyond this, we only store data to the extent that we are legally obliged to do so, e.g., due to statutory retention obligations.

2. Your rights

–          Right to access
–          Right to rectification or erasure
–          Right to restriction of processing
–          Right to object to processing
–          Right to data portability.

(2) You also have the right to lodge a complaint with a data protection supervisory authority about our processing of your personal data.

3. Processing of personal data when visiting our website

When you visit our website for informational purposes only, i.e., without registering or otherwise providing us with information, we process the personal data that your browser transmits to our server. The following data, which are technically necessary for us to display our website and ensure stability and security, are processed. The storage period is 14 days. The legal basis is Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR:

–          IP-address
–          date and time of the request
–          time zone difference to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT)
–          content of the request (specific page)

4. Objection or revocation against the processing of your data

(1) If you have given consent to the processing of your data, you can revoke this at any time by contacting the responsible entity using the above contact details. Such a revocation will affect the permissibility of processing your personal data after you have declared it to us. The permissibility of processing your data up to the point of your revocation remains unaffected.

(2) Insofar as we base the processing of your personal data on a balancing of interests, you can object to the processing. This is the case if the processing is not necessary, in particular, for the fulfillment of a contract with you, which we describe in the following functions. When exercising such an objection, we ask you to explain the reasons why we should not process your personal data as we have. In the event of your justified objection, we will examine the situation and either stop or adjust the data processing or show you our compelling legitimate reasons based on which we will continue the processing.

5. Processing of data from your devices

(1) In addition to the data mentioned above, we use technical aids for various functions during your use of our website, especially cookies, which may be stored on your device. You can choose to allow or disallow cookies generally or select individual additional functions when you visit our website and at any time later. You can make changes in your browser settings. Below we first describe cookies from a technical perspective.

(2) Cookies are text files or information in a database stored on your hard drive and assigned to the browser you are using so that the entity setting the cookie receives certain information. Cookies cannot execute programs or transmit viruses to your computer; their primary purpose is to make the Internet offer faster and more user-friendly. This website uses transient cookies, especially session cookies, which are automatically deleted when you close your browser or log out. They contain a so-called session ID, which allows different requests from your browser to be assigned to the shared session, enabling your computer to be recognized when you return to our website.

(3) Functions technically necessary for the display of the website: The technical setup of the website requires us to use techniques, particularly cookies. Without these techniques, our website cannot be fully displayed correctly or support functions may not be enabled. These are generally transient cookies, which are deleted at the end of your website visit or at the latest when you close your browser. These cookies cannot be deselected if you wish to use our website. The data processing based on cookies we deem absolutely necessary is based on § 25(2) No. 2 TTDSG. Further processing is carried out pursuant to Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR.

6. Links to other websites

When we provide links to the websites of other organizations, this privacy policy does not apply to the processing of personal data by these organizations. We recommend that you read the privacy notices on the other websites you visit.

Links to YouTube

On this website, we offer links to our videos on YouTube. Through the YouTube channel, we present videos about our products.
The provider is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.
If you wish to view the videos, you must click on the corresponding link. To use the functions, your IP address is stored by Google. This information may be transferred to a Google server outside the EU/EEA, e.g., in the USA, and stored there. The USA is currently assessed by the European Court of Justice as a country with an insufficient level of data protection according to EU standards. There is a risk that your data may be processed by US authorities for control and monitoring purposes.
Additionally, users’ data may be processed for analysis purposes. Profiles can be created from user behavior and derived interests, which can be used to place advertisements within and outside the platforms that likely correspond to users' interests. For these purposes, cookies may be stored on users' computers, which store user behavior, interests, and/or also the length of stay.
If you are logged into Google, your data will be directly associated with your account. If you do not wish your profile to be associated with Google, you must log out before activating the button. In the case of requests for information and the assertion of user rights, we point out that these can be most effectively asserted with the respective providers. Only the providers have access to the relevant user data and can directly take appropriate measures and provide information. The provider of this page has no influence on this data transmission. For more information on the purpose and scope of data collection and processing by Google, please refer to the provider's privacy policy. There you will also find further information about your rights and settings options to protect your privacy:

7. Applications

Detailed data protection information for applicants can be found in the career section under privacy. The legal basis for processing applicant data is Article 6(1)(b) of the GDPR (decision on establishing an employment relationship). If no employment contract is concluded with the applicant, the application documents will be deleted five months after the rejection notification, provided that no other legitimate interests of the controller oppose the deletion. Other legitimate interests pursuant to Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR can be, for example, a duty of proof in a procedure under the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG). Please do not send us photos, information on marital status, and other sensitive data. If you send your application to us unencrypted by email, it cannot be ruled out that a third party may gain access to the content of your email. If the email transmission path seems too insecure to you, please send your application documents by post.

8. Current status

This privacy policy is valid as of June 22, 2024. However, we point out that due to actual or legal changes, it may be necessary to revise this privacy policy from time to time.
