    (5) If we use external service providers for individual functions of our website or wish to use your data for advertising purposes, we will provide you with a detailed explanation of the underlying processes. The explanation will include the criteria that determine how long your data is stored.

    C. More information regarding the use of our websites or mobile apps for informational purposes only

    (1) When you use our websites or mobile apps solely for informational purposes – that is, if you don’t register or otherwise provide us with information – we will only collect the personal data that your browser transfers to our server. The following data is technically necessary for us to display our websites or mobile apps to you and to ensure their stability and security (processing is lawful on the basis of GDPR Article 6(1) point (f)).

    • IP address
    • Date and time of the request
    • Time zone difference from Greenwich Mean Time (GMT)
    • Content of the request (specific page)
    • Access status/HTTP status code

    (2) Cookies are also stored on your computer when you use our websites or mobile apps. Cookies are small files with configuration information that are associated with your browser, stored on your hard drive and used to provide certain information to the entity (i.e., us) who placed the cookie on your computer. Cookies cannot execute programs or infect your computer with viruses. Their purpose is make our internet presence more effective and user-friendly overall.

    (3) Use of cookies:

    a) The websites and mobile apps use different types of cookies:

    “Transient” cookies are deleted automatically when you close the browser. One type of transient cookie is a “session cookie”. It stores a “session ID” that associates various requests from your browser with one particular session. Session cookies allow us to recognize your computer if you return to our website. They are deleted when you log out or close your browser.

    “Persistent” cookies, by contrast, are automatically deleted after a specific period that may vary from one cookie to the next. You can delete persistent cookies at any time by adjusting your browser’s security settings.

    b) You can configure your browser settings based on your preferences, which may include refusing to accept all cookies or only third-party cookies. Please note, however, that you may not be able to use all the functions of our websites if you refuse to accept cookies.

    c) We use cookies to identify you on subsequent visits if you have an account with us. If we did not use cookies, you would have to log in separately for each visit.

    d) Flash cookies are managed by your Flash plugin, not by your browser. These objects store the data they need across browsers and do not have an automatic expiration date. If you do not wish Flash cookies to be processed, you will have to install a separate add-on. We also recommend manually deleting your cookies and browsing history on a regular basis.

    D. General remarks on additional functions and possible uses

    (1) In addition to using our websites or mobile apps solely for informational purposes, we also offer various services that you can use if you are interested. You will generally have to provide additional personal data to use these services. We use the data for service provision and handle the data in conformity with the data processing policies described above.

    (2) We sometimes use external service providers to process your data. These service providers have been carefully selected and hired by us. They are required to follow our instructions and are regularly monitored.

    (3) We may also share your personal data with third parties if we offer sales campaigns, sweepstakes, contracts or similar services in conjunction with our partners. You will receive more information when you provide your personal data. More information is also provided below in the description of available services.

    (4) The description of available services will also indicate the consequences of our using a service provider or partner based in a country outside the European Economic Area (EEA).

    E. Special remarks on the right to object or withdraw

    (2) You can object to our processing of your personal data wherever the processing is based on a balancing of interests. This includes processing that is not necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are a party, which we present below in the function descriptions. When you submit your objection, please include the reasons why we should not process your personal data as we have done. If your objection is warranted, we will review the facts and either stop or modify our data processing or provide the compelling legitimate grounds that allow us to continue processing your personal data.

    II. Special section – Special processing activities of Infraserv Höchst Group companies

    A. Use of our mobile apps

    (1) Note on mobile apps

    In addition to our website, we also provide mobile apps that you can download to your mobile device. We use two different types of apps:

    • Apps that we are responsible for (responsible for programming or content management)
    • Apps from third-party providers that we are not responsible for

    (2) Collection of personal data when using our mobile apps

    a) When you download the mobile app, the app store receives certain necessary information, including your user name, email address, customer number for your account, time of the download, payment information and the individual device ID. We have no control over or responsibility for this data collection. We process the data only to the extent required for the mobile app to download to your mobile device.

    b) We may also in certain cases require additional information such as your device ID, International Mobile Equipment Identity (IMEI), International Mobile Subscriber Identity (IMSI), Mobile Station International Subscriber Directory Number (MSISDN), MAC address for WiFi use, name of your mobile device or email address.

    c) Use of your address book, calendar, photos and memories
    (i) When you first use mobile apps that we are responsible for, a pop-up window will appear in which we ask for permission to use your address book or calendar, for example. We will not use this data if you do not grant permission. You may not be able to use our app’s full functionality if you do not give us your permission. You can grant or withdraw permission in the app’s settings or in your operating system at a later time.
    (ii) If you grant us access to this data, the mobile app will only access your data and transfer it to our server to the extent required to provide the associated function. We will treat your data confidentially and delete it if you withdraw your permission to use it or if the data is no longer needed to provide the services and is not covered by any legal retention obligations. The legal basis for processing is GDPR Article 6(1) point (f).

    d) Collection of your location data
    (i) We use location-based services to provide special services based on your location. You can use these functions only after having given us your permission in a pop-up window to collect your location data via GPS and your anonymized IP address for the purpose of providing services. You can grant or withdraw permission in the app’s settings or in your operating system at any time in the future. Your location will only be transferred to us if you use functions in the app that we can only provide if we know your location.
    (ii) Your location data will not be used to generate a location history outside of your current location.

    B. Special forms of use of our websites

    (1) Use of the commenting function on the intranet

    On the intranet, authorized users can comment publicly on various articles we publish on topics relating to our activities. The comments are published with the article and show the user’s indicated user name. We recommend that users use their real name but they can also use a pseudonym or no user name at all. Comments cannot be traced back to the IP address from which they were posted. The content of comments is solely the responsibility of the user who posted the comment. We do not check comments before they are published. We reserve the right to delete comments if we or others object to them as being unlawful.

    (2) Use of our function for requesting an offer

    a) If you use our website to request offers (for example, for services or seminars), you will have to provide your personal data so that we can respond to your request and send you the information. The information required to respond to the request is highlighted; the other information is voluntary. We process the data you provide in order to respond to your request and to perform any contract that may have been formed. In this case, the legal basis for processing is GDPR Article 6(1) point (b).

    b) When a contract has been formed, we are generally required by tax and accounting laws to retain your address, payment and order data for ten years.

    (3) Use of our supplier registration system

    As a supplier, you can enter your contact details so that we can store your data for our future purchases.

    (4) Use of our portals

    a) Our portals can be used in various ways by authorized users such as employees, business customers, partner companies and other interested parties. This includes online registrations for visitors, applications for photo permits or property removal permits, or services relating to partner company management.

    b) If you want to use our portals (for example, our Industriepark Höchst portal at www.industriepark-hoechst.com ), you will generally have to register by providing your email address, user name and a password of your choosing. We do not require you to provide your real name; you may use a pseudonym, but we do not recommend it. If you are employed by an Infraserv Höchst Group company, including Infrasite Monheim GmbH and Infraserv Höchst Prozesstechnik GmbH, you will need your “FRA Number” and your Windows login password in order to register. We use the “double opt-in” method for registration, which means that your registration will not be completed until you have confirmed it by clicking the confirmation link in a special confirmation email sent to you. If we do not receive your confirmation within 48 hours, your registration will be automatically deleted from our database. The above data is mandatory; you can provide all the other information voluntarily while using our portal.

    c) If you use our portals, we will store your data until you permanently delete your account. The legal basis is GDPR Article 6(1) point (f).

    d) When you use the portals, your contact details may become accessible to other portal users through a search tool. This makes it possible, for example, to find out the phone numbers of other portal users if they have shared them. Non-registered members cannot receive any information about you. All registered members can see your user name regardless of whether you have shared it.

    (5) Use of our forums

    a) Authorized users can read our forums without having to register. If you want to actively participate in the forum, certain forums (e.g., the “bulletin board” on the intranet) require you to register by providing your email address as well as a password and user name of your own choosing. We do not require you to provide your real name; you may use a pseudonym if you wish. Except for the “bulletin board” forum on the intranet, we use the “double opt-in” method for registration, which means that your registration will not be completed until you have confirmed it by clicking the confirmation link in a special confirmation email sent to you. If we do not receive your confirmation within 48 hours, your registration will be automatically deleted from our database.

    b) To gain access to the forums, users must provide a user name, password and email address. If you sign up for a forum account, we will store your registration data and all your forum activities – public posts, wall posts, friendships, private messages etc. – for as long as you remain registered so that we can run the forum. The legal basis is GDPR Article 6(1) point (f).

    c) Neither the administrator of these forums nor the participating moderators are responsible for the users’ activities. Please note that all the personal data you provide in forums becomes public data. You should exercise caution when deciding to publish personal data. We may remove or modify any data published in these forums if we or third parties believe that the data is unlawful.

    d) If you delete your account, your public statements – especially forum posts – will remain visible for all viewers. Your account, however, can no longer be accessed and will be marked as “Guest” in the forum. All other data will be deleted.

    (6) Use of our call-back function

    The call-back function gives users an opportunity to request a return call.

    The data you provide will be used for the sole purpose of making the call and will be stored for 3 months at most unless the user expresses an interest in information or services. In the latter case, we will store the data for processing. The call will be made by whichever Infraserv Höchst Group company can provide the desired information on that particular issue.

    (7) Use of the option to order information and advertising materials

    If, on our website, we offer to send you information materials (such as leaflets) in one single shipment, we will use your data solely for this purpose. The data you provide will be stored for 3 months at most unless the user expresses an interest in further information or services. In the latter case, we will store the data for processing.

    (8) Use of the option to register for events, training courses or seminars

    a) If you want to book events, training courses or seminars through our website, you will need to provide your personal data so that we can process your booking and enter into a contract with you. Information required for the performance of a contract is highlighted; the other information is voluntary. We process the data you provide in order to process your booking. Processing may include transferring your payment data to our primary bank. In this case, the legal basis for processing is GDPR Article 6(1) point (b).

    We can also process the data you provide to notify you regularly or intermittently of other attractive products in our portfolio or to send you emails containing relevant information.

    C. Third-party offers

    Our website links to other websites so that you can receive interesting and related information. Our website also uses, or links to, third-party apps that we assume no responsibility for. These websites or mobile apps operated by other companies outside of our website or apps are not under our control and are not covered by this privacy policy. When you access other websites or use mobile apps by clicking the available links, the website or mobile app operator can collect your personal data. Do not transfer personal data until you are sure that the operator’s privacy policy is acceptable to you. We are not responsible, legally or otherwise, for what other companies do (example: The Industriepark Höchst portal www.industriepark-hoechst.com links to the “Pendlerportal” commuter portal of Marktplatz GmbH.). We will immediately remove these links if we learn of any legal violations.

    D. Newsletter

    (1) You may subscribe to the newsletter that we use to tell you about our latest interesting services. You can find a description of our Group portfolio at www.infraserv.com/portfolio .

    (2) We use a double opt-in process for newsletter registration. It consists of sending an email to your stated email address after registration in which we ask you to confirm that you do in fact want to receive the newsletter. If you do not confirm your registration within 48 hours, your information will be placed on a “do not contact” list and automatically erased after one month. We also store your IP addresses and the points in time when you registered and confirmed your subscription. The purpose of this procedure is to verify your registration and identify any potential misuse of your personal data.

    (3) Your email address is the only information that you absolutely have to provide in order to get the newsletter. Other, separately highlighted data is optional and will be used to address you personally. Once you provide confirmation, we will store your email address for the purpose of sending you the newsletter. The legal basis is GDPR Article 6(1) point (a).

    (4) You can withdraw your consent to receiving a newsletter at any time and unsubscribe from the newsletter. You can withdraw your consent by clicking the link included in every newsletter email, by sending an email to kundenservice (at) infraserv.com or by sending a message to the contacts specified in the “Legal information” section of our website.

    (5) Please note that we analyze your user behavior when we send out newsletters. This is done using the tracking functions developed by ClickDimensions and empaction GmbH (please see “Web analytics” for details). Our emails contain “web beacons” (a.k.a. “tracking pixels”), which are one-pixel graphics stored on our website that are used for the user behavior analysis. We associate the collected data and web beacons with your email address and an individual ID to conduct the analyses. The ID is also included in links contained in newsletters. We then use this collected data to create a user profile to tailor the newsletter to your personal interests. In this process, we track when you read our newsletters and what newsletter links you click in order to determine your personal interests. We associate this data with your actions on our website.

    You can object to this tracking at any time by clicking the separate link provided in each email or by notifying us through a different communications channel. The information will be stored for as long as your newsletter subscription is active. Once you unsubscribe, we will store the data only statistically and anonymously. This type of tracking is not possible if you have deactivated automatic image loading in your email software. If you do this, the newsletter will not be displayed completely and you may not be able to use its full functionality. If you manually display the pictures, the tracking functions described above will be carried out.

    E. Web analytics

    (1) Use of Google Analytics

    a) This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies”. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website will generally be transmitted to and stored on a Google server in the United States. If IP anonymization is activated on this website, Google will, however, truncate your IP address beforehand within the member states of the European Union or within other states party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the United States and truncated there. By request of this website’s operator, Google will use this information for the purposes of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage for the website operator.

    b) Google will not associate the IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics with any other data held by Google.

    c) You can refuse to store cookies by changing your browser settings; please note, however, that you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website in this case. You can also prevent the data generated by the cookie with regard to your use of the website (including your IP address) from being collected and processed by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout .

    If you do not want to use the browser add-on or are using a browser on a mobile device,

    you can also click this link (JavaScript link)

    to prevent any future collection by Google Analytics within this website (the opt-out only works in this browser and only for this domain). This places an opt-out cookie on your device. If you delete your cookies in this browser, you will have to click this link again.

    d) This website uses Google Analytics with the extension “anonymizeIp()”. This extension ensures that IP addresses are only processed in truncated form and so cannot be linked to a person. The extension therefore prevents you from being identified by any of the data collected on you because it immediately deletes personal data.

    e) We use Google Analytics to regularly analyze and improve the use of our website. The analytical statistics allow us to improve our online presence and give you a more engaging user experience. On the rare occasions when personal data is transferred to the United States, Google is EU-US Privacy Shield certified, see https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework . The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is GDPR Article 6(1) point (f).

    f) Third-party provider information: Google Dublin, Google Ireland Ltd., Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland, Fax: +353 (1) 436 1001. Terms of Service: http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/us.html , Overview of Data Privacy:: http://www.google.com/analytics/learn/privacy.html and the Privacy Policy: https://policies.google.com/privacy .

    g) This website also uses Google Analytics to analyze cross-device visitor flows based on user ID. You can deactivate the cross-device analysis of your activities in your customer account under “My data” ("Meine Daten") -> “Personal data” ("persönliche Daten").

    (2) Use of web analytics tools

    Our websites and newsletters use the web tracking services provided by ClickDimensions LLC (ATTN: Chief Operating Officer, 5901 Peachtree Dunwoody Road, NE, Suite B500, Atlanta, GA 30328, United States of America) and by empaction GmbH (Marktstrasse 33-35, 60388 Frankfurt am Main, Germany). These services use cookies. The analyses give us useful insights into how our website is used. We can use this information to improve our website and make the information it contains more attractive and interesting to you.

    F. Social media

    (1) Use of social media interfaces

    We currently use the following social media interfaces: Twitter, Xing, LinkedIn, AddThis, Facebook. These interfaces are configured to work with a “two-click system”. In a two-click system, your personal data is not automatically transferred to the providers the moment you access our website. You can identify the social media provider by the initial letter or logo shown on the box. The provider is only notified that you have accessed this page on our website when you activate the associated field by clicking it. You have the option to share with other users the URL and the information that you can enter or to “like” individual pages or content. No personal data is transferred when you click “like”.

    (2) Embedding of YouTube videos

    a) Our website contains embedded YouTube videos that are stored on http://www.YouTube.com and can be played without leaving our website. All the videos have been embedded in “privacy-enhanced mode” which means that YouTube will not receive any data about you if you do not play the videos. The data specified in par. 2 is not transferred until you play the videos. We have no control over this transfer of data.

    b) When you play a video, YouTube is notified that you have accessed a website page containing the embedded video. The provider will then also receive the data described in Section 3 of this policy. This happens whether or not you have a YouTube account or are logged into a YouTube account. If you are logged in with Google, your data will be linked to your account. If you do not want this data to be linked to your YouTube profile, you will have to log out before activating the button. YouTube stores your data in user profiles that it uses for advertising, market research and/or to tailor its website to market needs. This analysis (which even includes users who are not logged in) is mainly done to show targeted advertising and notify other users in the social network about what you have done on our website. You can object to the creation of user profiles by contacting YouTube.

    c) Please see YouTube’s privacy policy for more information on the purposes and extent to which it collects and processes data. The policy also contains more information on your rights and ways to adjust your settings to protect your privacy: https://policies.google.com/privacy . Google processes your personal data in the United States and is EU-US Privacy Shield certified, see https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework .

    (3) Embedding of Google Maps

    a) Our website uses Google Maps, which lets us show you interactive maps within our website and give you convenient access to map functions.

    b) When you visit the website, Google is notified that you have accessed a website page containing Google Maps. The provider will then also receive the data described in Section 3 of this policy. This happens whether or not you have a Google account or are logged into a Google account. If you are logged in with Google, your data will be linked to your account. If you do not want this data to be linked to your Google profile, you will have to log out before activating the button. Google stores your data in user profiles that it uses for advertising, market research and/or to tailor its website to market needs. This analysis (which even includes users who are not logged in) is mainly done to show targeted advertising and notify other users in the social network about what you have done on our website. You can object to the creation of user profiles by contacting Google.

    c) To learn more about the purpose and extent to which the plug-in provider collects and processes data, please see the provider’s privacy policy. The policy also contains more information on your rights and ways to adjust your settings to protect your privacy: https://policies.google.com/privacy . Google processes your personal data in the United States and is EU-US Privacy Shield certified, see https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework .

    G. Online advertising and user behavior analysis

    (1) Use of Google AdWords conversion

    a) We use Google AdWords to advertise our attractive services on external websites. We can track the success of individual advertisements in relation to the advertising campaign data. Our interest in this process is to show you advertising that you find interesting, make our website more interesting for you and spend our advertising budget more effectively.

    b) Google delivers AdWords advertisements through “ad servers”. We use ad server cookies to track certain parameters of success such as impressions or clicks. If you reach our website through a Google ad, Google AdWords will place a cookie on your PC. These cookies generally expire after 30 days and are not designed to identify you personally. The analytical parameters that these cookies generally contain are a unique cookie ID, the number of ad impressions per placement (frequency), the last impression (relevant for post-view conversions) and opt-out information (flag that the user no longer wants to be contacted).

    c) These cookies enable Google to recognize your internet browser. If a user visits certain pages on an AdWords customer’s website and the cookie stored on the user’s computer has not yet expired, Google and the customer will be able to tell that the user clicked the ad and was sent to this page. Each AdWords customer is assigned a different cookie. That means that cookies cannot be tracked across multiple AdWords customers’ websites. We do not collect or process personal data in connection with the above advertisements. Google merely provides us with statistical analyses. We can use these analyses to determine which advertisements have been particularly effective. We receive no further data from using AdWords, nor can we identify users based on this information.

    d) Your browser automatically establishes a direct connection to the Google server based on the marketing tools. We have no control over the scope or further use of the data that Google collects with this tool, and are therefore providing this information based on our understanding: When AdWords conversion is integrated, Google is told that you have accessed a certain part of our website or clicked one of our advertisements. If you have registered for a Google service, Google will be able to associate the visit with your account. Even if you are not registered with Google or are not logged in, the provider may still discover and store your IP address.

    e) There are several ways to avoid participating in the tracking process:
    (i) change the settings in your browser software; in particular, block third-party cookies to stop receiving ads from third-party providers;
    (ii) deactivate the cookies for conversion tracking by setting your browser to block cookies from “www.googleadservices.com”, https://adssettings.google.com ; note, however, that this setting is deleted when you delete your cookies;
    (iii) deactivate interest-based advertising from providers who participate in “About Ads”, a self-regulatory campaign at http://www.aboutads.info/choices ; note, however, that this setting is deleted when you delete your cookies;
    (iv) permanently deactivate tracking in your Firefox, Internet Explorer or Google Chrome browser at the following link: http://www.google.com/settings/ads/plugin . Please note, however, that you may not be able to use the full functionality of our websites if you do this.

    f) The legal basis for processing your data is GDPR Article 6(1) point (f). You can find more information about Google’s privacy policies here: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en and https://services.google.com/sitestats/en.html . As an alternative, you can also visit the website of the Network Advertising Initiative (NAI) at http://www.networkadvertising.org . Google is EU-US Privacy Shield certified, see https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework .

    (2) Google Remarketing

    We use Google Remarketing in addition to AdWords conversion. We use this process in order to contact you again. Google Remarketing shows you our ads after you leave our website as you continue to use the internet. This feature relies on cookies stored in your browser, which Google uses to track and analyze your user behavior when you visit various websites. This allows Google to recognize that you have visited our website before. According to Google, the data collected during remarketing is not merged with any personal data that Google may have stored on you. Google claims that it uses pseudonymization for remarketing.

    (3) DoubleClick by Google

    a) This website also uses DoubleClick by Google, an online marketing tool. DoubleClick uses cookies in order to show ads that are relevant for the user, improve campaign performance reports and avoid displaying the same ads to a user repeatedly. Google uses a cookie ID to track which ads are displayed in which browser and prevent them from being displayed more than once. In addition, DoubleClick can use cookie IDs to identify “conversions” that relate to ad requests. One example of a conversion is when a user sees a DoubleClick ad and later, using the same browser, accesses the advertiser’s website and makes a purchase there. DoubleClick cookies do not contain any personal data, according to Google.

    b) Your browser automatically establishes a direct connection to the Google server based on the marketing tools. We have no control over the scope or further use of the data that Google collects with this tool, and are therefore providing this information based on our understanding: When DoubleClick is integrated, Google is told that you have accessed a certain part of our website or clicked one of our advertisements. If you have registered for a Google service, Google will be able to associate the visit with your account. Even if you are not registered with Google or are not logged in, the provider may still discover and store your IP address.

    c) There are several ways to avoid participating in the tracking process:
    (i) change the settings in your browser software; in particular, block third-party cookies to stop receiving ads from third-party providers;
    (ii) deactivate the cookies for conversion tracking by setting your browser to block cookies from “www.googleadservices.com”, https://adssettings.google.com ; note, however, that this setting is deleted when you delete your cookies;
    (iii) deactivate interest-based advertising from providers who participate in “About Ads”, a self-regulatory campaign at http://www.aboutads.info/choices ; note, however, that this setting is deleted when you delete your cookies;
    (iv) permanently deactivate tracking in your Firefox, Internet Explorer or Google Chrome browser at the following link: http://www.google.com/settings/ads/plugin . Please note, however, that you may not be able to use the full functionality of our websites if you do this.

    d) The legal basis for processing your data is GDPR Article 6(1) point (f).
