We take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We will only use the personal data you
submit as set out in this policy.
Below you will find information on how we use your personal data, for which purposes personal data is
used, with whom it is shared and what control and information rights you may have.
Our data protection declaration is based on the terms used by the European legislator for the adoption of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). We use, inter alia, the following terms:
a) Personal data
Personal data means any 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 to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.
b) Data subject
Data subject is any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data is processed by the controller responsible for the processing.
Processing is any operation or set of operations which is performed on personal data or on sets of personal data, whether or not by automated means, such as collection, recording, organisation, structuring, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.
d) Restriction of processing
Restriction of processing is the marking of stored personal data with the aim of limiting their processing in the future.
Profiling means any form of automated processing of personal data consisting of the use of personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyse or predict aspects concerning that natural person’s performance at work, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behaviour, location or movements.
Pseudonymisation is the processing of personal data in such a manner that the personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without the use of additional information, provided that such additional information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organisational measures to ensure that the personal data are not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.
g) Controller or controller responsible for the processing
Controller or controller responsible for the processing is the natural or legal person, public authority, agency, or other body which, alone or jointly with others, determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data. Where the purposes and means of such processing are determined by Union or Member State law, the controller or the specific criteria for its nomination may be provided for by Union or Member State law.
Processor is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which processes personal data on behalf of the controller.
Recipient is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or another body to which the personal data are disclosed, whether a third party or not. However, public authorities which may receive personal data in the framework of a particular inquiry in accordance with Union or Member State law shall not be regarded as recipients. The processing of that data by those public authorities shall be in compliance with the applicable data protection rules according to the purposes of the processing.
j) Third party
Third party is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or body other than the data subject, controller, processor and persons who, under the direct authority of the controller or processor, are authorised to process personal data.
Consent of the data subject is any freely given, specific, informed and unambiguous indication of the data subject’s wishes by which he or she, by a statement or by a clear affirmative action, signifies agreement to the processing of personal data relating to him or her.
2. Informational use of the website
Our website collects a series of general data and information when you or an automated system calls up the website. This general data and information are stored in the server log files. Collected may be:
(1) the browser types and versions used;
(2) the operating system used by the accessing system;
(3) the website from which an accessing system reaches our website (so-called referrers);
(4) the sub-websites;
(5) the date and time of access to the internet site;
(6) an internet protocol address (IP address);
(7) the internet service provider of the accessing system; and
(8) any other similar data and information that may be used in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.
When using this general data and information, we do not draw any conclusions about you. Rather, this information is needed to
(1) deliver the content of our website correctly;
(2) optimize the content of our website as well as its advertisement;
(3) ensure the long-term viability of our information technology systems and website technology; and
(4) provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for criminal prosecution in case of a cyber-attack.
We analyse the collected data and information statistically, with the aim of increasing the data protection and data security of our enterprise and to ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data we process. The data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by you.
3. Provision of personal data as statutory or contractual requirement
In order to initiate a business relationship, to fulfil contracts or as required by law (e.g. tax regulations), the following additional, but not exhaustively listed, personal data may be collected:
(2) phone number;
(3) email address; and
The non-provision of the personal data would have the consequence that the contract with you could not be concluded.
We collect and process the personal data of applicants for the purpose of the processing of the application procedure. The processing may also be carried out electronically. This is the case in particular if an applicant submits corresponding application documents by email or by means of a web form on the website to us. If we conclude an employment contract with an applicant, the submitted data will be stored for the purpose of processing the employment relationship in compliance with legal requirements. If no employment contract is concluded, the application documents will be automatically erased two months after notification of the refusal decision, provided that no other legitimate interests of us are opposed to the erasure. Another legitimate interest in this relation is e.g. a burden of proof in a procedure under the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG).
You may, at any time, prevent the setting of cookies through our website by means of a corresponding setting of the internet browser used and may thus permanently deny the setting of cookies. Furthermore, already set cookies may be deleted at any time via an internet browser or other software programs. If you deactivate the setting of cookies in the internet browser used, not all functions of our website may be entirely usable.
A list of all used cookies you find at https://www.inpacs.com/Cookies.
6. Application and use of Google Analytics (with anonymization function)
On this website, we have integrated the component of Google Analytics (with the anonymizer function). Google Analytics is a web analytics service. Web analytics is the collection, gathering and analysis of data about the behaviour of visitors to websites. A web analysis service collects, inter alia, data about the website from which a person has come (the so-called referrer), which sub-pages were visited or how often and for what duration a sub-page was viewed. Web analytics are mainly used for the optimization of a website and in order to carry out a cost-benefit analysis of internet advertising.
The operator of the Google Analytics component is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland.
For the web analytics through Google Analytics we use the application „_gat. _anonymizeIp“. By means of this application the IP address of your internet connection is abridged by Google and anonymised when accessing our websites from a member state of the European Union or another contracting state to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.
The purpose of the Google Analytics component is to analyse the traffic on our website. Google uses the collected data and information, inter alia, to evaluate the use of our website and to provide online reports, which show the activities on our websites, and to provide other services concerning the use of our internet site for us.
Google Analytics places a cookie on your information technology system. With the setting of the cookie, Google is enabled to analyse the use of our website. With each call-up to one of the individual pages of this internet site, which is operated by us and into which a Google Analytics component was integrated, the internet browser on your information technology system will automatically submit data through the Google Analytics component for the purpose of online advertising and the settlement of commissions to Google. During the course of this technical procedure, Google gains knowledge of personal information, such as your IP address, which serves Google, inter alia, to understand the origin of visitors and clicks and subsequently create commission settlements.
The cookie is used to store personal information, such as the access time, the location from which the access was made, and the frequency of visits of our website by you. With each visit to our internet site, such personal data, including the IP address of the internet access used by you, will be transmitted to Google in the United States of America. This personal data is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may pass this personal data collected to third parties.
You may, as stated under Section 5 (Cookies), prevent the setting of cookies through our website at any time by means of a corresponding adjustment of the web browser used and thus permanently deny the setting of cookies. Such an adjustment to the internet browser used would also prevent Google Analytics from setting a cookie on your information technology system. In addition, cookies already in use by Google Analytics may be deleted at any time via a web browser or other software programs.
Moreover, you have the possibility of objecting to a collection of data that are generated by Google
Analytics, which is related to the use of this website, as well as the processing of this data by Google
and the chance to preclude any such. For this purpose, you must download a browser add-on under
the link https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout and install it. This browser add-on tells Google
be transmitted to Google Analytics.
Further information and the applicable data protection provisions of Google may be retrieved
under https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/ and
under http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/us.html. Google Analytics is further explained under the
following Link: https://www.google.com/analytics/.
7. Application and use of YouTube
On this website, we have integrated components of YouTube. YouTube is an internet video portal that enables video publishers to set video clips free of charge and also provides free viewing, review and commenting on them.
The operating company of YouTube is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland.
With each call-up to one of the individual pages of this internet site, which is operated by us and on
which a YouTube component (YouTube video) was integrated, the internet browser on your
information technology system is automatically prompted to download a display of the corresponding
YouTube component. Further information about YouTube may be obtained
under https://www.youtube.com/yt/about/en/. During the course of this technical procedure, YouTube,
and Google gain knowledge of what specific sub-page of our website was visited by you.
If you are logged in on YouTube, YouTube recognizes with each call-up to a sub-page that contains a
YouTube video, which specific sub-page of our internet site was visited by you. This information is
collected by YouTube and Google and assigned to your respective YouTube account.
YouTube and Google will receive information through the YouTube component that you have visited
our website if you are logged in on YouTube at the time of the call to our website. This occurs
regardless of whether you click on a YouTube video or not. If such a transmission of this information to
YouTube and Google is not desirable for you, the delivery may be prevented if you log off from your
own YouTube account before a call-up to our website is made.
YouTube’s data protection provisions, available at https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/,
provide information about the collection, processing and use of personal data by YouTube and
8. Application and use of DoubleClickgo
On this website, we have integrated components of DoubleClick by Google. DoubleClick is a trademark of Google under which predominantly special online marketing solutions are marketed to advertising agencies and publishers.
The operating company of DoubleClick by Google is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland.
DoubleClick transmits data to the DoubleClick server with each impression, clicks or other activity. Each of these data transfers triggers a cookie request to your browser. If the browser accepts this request, DoubleClick uses a cookie on your information technology system. The cookie is used, inter alia, to display and place user-relevant advertising as well as to create or improve reports on advertising campaigns. Furthermore, the cookie serves to avoid multiple display of the same advertisement.
It is also possible for DoubleClick to track conversions through the cookie ID. For instance, conversions are captured when you have previously been shown a DoubleClick advertising ad and you subsequently make a purchase on the advertiser’s website using the same internet browser.
A cookie from DoubleClick does not contain any personal data. However, a DoubleClick cookie may contain additional campaign IDs. A campaign ID is used to identify campaigns that the user has already been in contact with.
With each call-up to one of the individual pages of this website, which is operated by us and on which a DoubleClick component was integrated, the internet browser on your information technology system is automatically prompted by the respective DoubleClick component to send data for the purpose of online advertising and billing of commissions to Google. During the course of this technical procedure, Google gains knowledge of any data that Google may use to create commission calculations. Google may, inter alia, understand that you have clicked on certain links on our website.
You may, as stated under Section 5 (Cookies), prevent the setting of cookies through our website at any time by means of a corresponding adjustment of the web browser used and thus permanently deny the setting of cookies. Such an adjustment to the internet browser used would also prevent Google from setting a cookie on your information technology system. In addition, cookies already in use by Google may be deleted at any time via a web browser or other software programs.
Further information and the applicable data protection provisions of DoubleClick may be retrieved
under DoubleClick by Google https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/.
9. Legal basis for the processing
Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing operations for which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are party, as is the case, for example, when processing operations are necessary for the supply of goods or to provide any other service, the processing is based on Article 6 (1) (b) GDPR. The same applies to such processing operations which are necessary for carrying out pre-contractual measures, for example in the case of inquiries concerning our products or services. Are we subject to a legal obligation by which processing of personal data is required, such as for the fulfilment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 (1) (c) GDPR. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be necessary to protect your vital interests or of another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor were injured in our company and his name, age, health insurance data or other vital information would have to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Then the processing would be based on Art. 6 (1) (d) GDPR. Finally, processing operations could be based on Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR. This legal basis is used if processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by us or by a third party, except where such interests are overridden by your interests or fundamental rights and freedoms which require protection of personal data. Where the processing of personal data is based on Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR our legitimate interest is to carry out our business in favour of the well-being of all our employees and the shareholders. The European legislator considered that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a client of the controller (Recital 47 sentence 2 GDPR).
10. Automated decision-making
We do not use automatic decision-making or profiling.
11. Information sharing
Your personal data will only be disclosed to third parties on the legal basis as described under Section
9. Some of the recipients may reside outside the EEA. For further information about cross border transfer in general and transfers outside of the EEA see Section 12 on Cross border data transfers.
12. Cross border data transfers
Within the scope of our information sharing activities set out under Section 11, your personal data may be transferred to other countries (including countries outside the EEA) which may have different data protection standards from your country of residence. Please note that data processed in a foreign country may be subject to foreign laws and accessible to foreign governments, courts, law enforcement and regulatory agencies. However, we will endeavour to take reasonable measures to maintain an adequate level of data protection when sharing your personal data with such countries.
In the case of a transfer outside of the EEA, this transfer is safeguarded by EU Model Clauses in
accordance with Article 46 GDPR. You can find further information about the aforementioned
safeguards by following this link https://ec.europa.eu/info/law/law-topic/data-protection_en.
We have reasonable state of the art security measures in place to protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of personal data under our control. For example, only authorised personnel have access to personal data. Whilst we cannot ensure or guarantee that loss, misuse or alteration of information will never occur, we use all reasonable efforts to prevent it.
You should bear in mind that submission of information over the internet is never entirely secure. We cannot guarantee the security of information you submit via our website whilst it is in transit over the internet and any such submission is at your own risk.
14. Data retention
We strive to keep our processing activities with respect to your personal data as limited as possible. Your personal data will be retained only for as long as we need it to fulfil the purpose for which we have collected it and, if applicable, as long as required by statutory retention requirements (e.g. in commercial law or tax law).

e) Right of restriction of processing
You have the right to obtain from us restriction of processing where one of the following applies:
- The accuracy of the personal data is contested by you. However, we will need the time enabling us to verify the accuracy of the personal data.
- The processing is unlawful and you oppose the erasure of the personal data and request instead the restriction of its use.
- We no longer need the personal data for the purposes of the processing, but it is required by you for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.
- You have objected to processing pursuant to Article 21 (1) GDPR pending the verification whether our legitimate grounds override yours.
f) Right to data portability
You have the right to receive the personal data concerning you, which was provided to us, in a structured, commonly used, and machine-readable format.

(1) is not necessary for entering into, or the performance of, a contract between you and us; or
(2) is not authorised by Union or Member State law to which we are subject and which also lays down suitable measures to safeguard your rights, freedoms and legitimate interests; or
(3) is not based on your explicit consent.
