How we collect your data
Firstly, the data we collect are those you submit to us. Such data may include, for example, information entered into a contact form or emails sent to us. Other data are collected automatically by our IT systems when you visit our website. These are primarily technical data (e.g. internet browser, operating system or the time the page was accessed). These data are collected automatically as soon as you visit our website.
How we use your data
Part of the data is collected to ensure that the website works flawlessly. Other data may be used to analyse your user behaviour. Data that you submit through a contact form on our website is used to deal with your issues and to answer your questions. In case of an application for a job as an employee we store your data for 2 months; for longer periods data is stored only with the consent of the applicant.
Your rights regarding your personal data
You have the right to receive information about the origin, the recipients and the purpose of your personal data stored with us. This information may be requested at any time and free of charge. Furthermore, you have the right to request rectification, blocking or erasure of these data as well as the right to object to and restrict the processing of your data. Apart from that, you have the right to data portability. If you would like to exercise any of the aforementioned rights or have any further questions concerning the topic of data protection, you may always get in touch with us using the address stated in the Legal Notice. Moreover, you are entitled to file a complaint with the competent supervisory authority.
Analysis tools and third-party tools
When visiting our website, your surfing behaviour can be analysed statistically. This is done, above all, by means of cookies and so-called analysis programmes. The analysis of your surfing behaviour is usually performed anonymously. You can object to this analysis or prevent it by not using certain tools. Details regarding this matter are stated in section "3. Data collection on our website".
You can object to this analysis. Information about your objection options is included in this Privacy Notice.
2. General information and mandatory information
As the operator of these pages, we take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data as confidential as well as in compliance with the statutory data protection regulations and this Privacy Notice.
Different personal data are collected when you use this website. Personal data are data that may identify you. The present Privacy Notice contains explanations on the data we collect and why we use them. Furthermore, it explains the reasons and purposes of this collection.
We point out that online data transmission (e.g. when communicating by email) can be subject to security loopholes. It is not possible to fully protect your data from being accessed by third parties.

The party responsible is the natural person or legal entity that solely decides upon the purposes and means of the processing of personal data (e.g. names, email addresses or the like).
Revocation of your consent to data processing
Many data processing operations cannot be performed unless you have given your explicit consent. You may always revoke any consent you have given. All you have to do is send an informal notification (e.g. in writing or by email) to the party responsible mentioned above. The lawfulness of the processing that occurred before submission of your revocation remains unaffected.
Right to file a complaint with the competent supervisory authority

Furthermore, you are entitled to have these data transmitted to a third party. If you request that your data be transmitted directly to another party responsible, this is done where technically feasible.
Access, blocking, erasure, restriction, objection

3. Data collection on our website
To some extent, our websites use so-called cookies. Cookies do not cause any damage to your computer, nor do they contain any viruses.

Transmission of virtual shopping cart data and digital contents to a sales partner
Other than within the framework of the use of the virtual shopping cart, we do not transmit any personal data to third parties. The contents of the virtual shopping cart are transmitted to the sales partner selected by you within the scope of the contract initiation.
The data will not be transmitted outside this scope.
Your data will only be processed on servers operated by JEMAKO International GmbH, Germany. This can be done by JEMAKO Produktionsgesellschaft mbH, Germany, within the framework of order processing or order data processing. If it is necessary for procedures concerning Switzerland, your personal data will be passed on to JEMAKO Schweiz AG, Lavaterstrasse 40, 8002 Zurich, Switzerland, for further processing of your orders or enquiries. In addition, your personal data will not be processed outside the European Union, with the exception of the use of third-party software in accordance with the following provisions. All personal data processing activities of the companies of the JEMAKO Group mentioned here are carried out for the purposes mentioned here and in accordance with and in compliance with the provisions resulting from this data protection declaration. We also take all measures necessary to ensure the protection of your data. Your data will not be passed on to third parties for advertising purposes, for example.
The basis of this data processing is Art. 6 Sec. 1 lit. b GDPR, which permits the processing of data when necessary for the performance of a contract or precontractual measures.
Except in the cases set out in the "cookies", "server log files" and "analysis" sections, no data will remain stored once you have exited the website or when the virtual shopping cart is being forwarded to a sales partner.
As regards the handling of cookies, especially with regard to the deletion of the data collected by them, we refer to the "cookies" section of this Privacy Notice.
The sales partner you selected in connection with the virtual shopping cart is bound by the data protection regulations of their home country. In this regard, we refer to the privacy notice on the sales partner's website.
We refer to the data subject rights mentioned in section 2. Orders cannot be processed unless the personal data of the data subject are collected and processed.
Secure data transmission
JEMAKO ensures the secure transmission of your data by means of SSL and/or TLS (Secure Sockets Layer / Transport Layer Security) encryption. However, although no one can guarantee absolute protection, we secure our website and other systems by means of technical and organisational measures to protect your data against loss, destruction, access, modification or distribution by unauthorised persons.
This page includes third-party software solutions. If you use these, your data will also be processed by these third parties in accordance with the following instructions. The person responsible for this site usually has no influence on this. You use the third-party software at your own risk.
This page uses the map service Google Maps via an API. The provider is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
To use the functions of Google Maps, it is necessary to save your IP address. This information is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. The person responsible for this website has no influence on this data transfer to Google Maps.
The use of Google Maps is in the interest of an attractive presentation of our online offers and to make it easy to find the places indicated by us on the website, especially for the sales adviser search. This represents a legitimate interest in terms of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.
You can find more information on the handling of user data in Google's data protection declaration: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en&gl=en.
Our website uses plugins from Google’s YouTube site. The operator of this website is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA.
If you visit one of our pages equipped with a YouTube plugin and click on a video, a connection to the YouTube servers is established. The YouTube server is informed which of our pages you have visited. If you are logged into your YouTube account, you allow YouTube to associate your surfing behaviour directly with your personal YouTube profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account.
We maintain an online presence with the social media providers mentioned here, through which we communicate with active customers and other interested parties in order to inform them about our products.
We would like to point out that user data can be processed outside the European Union. This can pose risks for you as a user, as for example the enforcement of your rights as a user could be made more difficult.
The processing of users' personal data is carried out on the basis of our legitimate interest in effective communication with users in terms of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. GDPR. If the users are asked by the social media providers to give their consent to the processing of data, for example by activating a checkbox or confirming a button, the legal basis of the processing is consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a. GDPR.
For details of the respective processing and possible objections (opt-out), we refer to the links of the social media providers which are mentioned below.
In the event of requests for information and the assertion of user rights, we would like to point out that these can most effectively be asserted directly against the social media providers, since only they have access to the user data and can take appropriate steps and provide information. If you still need support, however, you can contact us. We will use our influence with the social media providers as part of our data protection responsibility to help you enforce your rights.
Facebook is certified under what is known as the Privacy Shield, an agreement between the EU and the USA regarding the processing of personal data (see also links below).
Users' data can be processed on Facebook for market research and advertising purposes. Thus, for example, user profiles can be created from the user behaviour and the resulting interests of the users. The user profiles make it possible, for example, to place advertisements inside and outside of Facebook that are likely to correspond to the interests of the users. Cookies in which the user's usage behaviour is stored are usually stored on the user's computer for this purpose. This can also be done by Facebook if you do not have your own profile on Facebook and/or are not logged in. In addition, the user profiles may also store data that is stored independently of the user's devices used, especially if the user is a member of Facebook and logged in there.
