4. General Data Security Information

Data processing when calling up websites

When a website is called up, a large amount of data - including personal data - is automatically transmitted via the Internet. From a technical point of view, this is necessary in order for the website call to function at all and also in order to be able to provide you with the best possible result.

For example, whenever you call up a web page, an image is retrieved from a server, an external plug-in (or script) is loaded or a video is streamed or one of the many other transmission options is used, data is sent from your computer to the server from which you retrieve it. When you access a website, your browser (e.g. Firefox, Internet Explorer, Edge, Opera, Safari) automatically sends certain information from your system. These data are for example:

  • Website from which the website or a file (image, script, video) is called or in which the file is embedded (referer).
  • Operating system
  • Screen resolution
  • Keyboard layout (language)
  • IP address from which the website or file was accessed
  • Name of the accessed web page or file
  • Time stamp (date and time) of the request
  • Name of the browser and its version
  • Amount of data transferred
  • Access status (file transferred, error code)

This data is logged by each server. The logging is done, for example, to

  • maintaining and checking IT security (e.g. to detect hacker attacks) and IT operations
  • statistical analysis (about the use of the website)
  • improvement of the website
  • adapted output of the website or files, so that they are (can be) displayed optimized on your end device

No pseudonymization or anonymization is used for security protocols, as this would make it impossible to draw conclusions about potential attackers. As a rule, the evaluation of data for other purposes is anonymized and no profiling is carried out. Further information can be found in the further course of this data protection declaration.

Data subject

The "data subject", is the person whose personal data is collected and processed. In the following, the "Data Subject" is also referred to as the "Website Visitor" or "User".

Informationen on data subject rights

Every data subject can assert his or her rights (data subject rights) against the person responsible. This can be done as an email, by mail or a provided form. Telephone inquiries are also possible. However, telephone inquiries will only be accepted and will not be answered on the phone. The data controller selects the medium (mail, email, other media) and sends the data subject the response to his/her request via this medium. Responses to requests regarding the rights of data subjects are provided free of charge. In case of excessive exercise (e.g. strong accumulation) of the data subject rights, a fee may be charged. The response shall be given within the statutory period of one month. The deadline may be extended in exceptional cases (e.g. high number of requests or high complexity of the request). Reasons must be given for the extension of the deadline. The rights of data subjects are listed below. For the sake of clarity, we have noted the data subject rights in bullet point form. Behind each list you will find a link to detailed explanations (on the HUBIT data protection pages).

The data subject must authenticate him/herself to the data controller to ensure that he/she is legitimized to exercise the data subject rights.

On the HUBIT data security page, you will find a form that you can use to exercise your data subject rights with us: Data subject rights form


5. Cookies

In addition to cookies that are necessary for the technical operation of the website, we set the following cookie:

    Purpose: This session cookie is used to recognize the user while visiting different subpages of the website. It thus increases user-friendliness.
    Storage period: Until the end of the browser session


6. Encryption of the Website

To protect your data, all content on this website is transmitted (TLS) encrypted..


7. Newsletter

If you subscribe to our company's newsletter, the data in the respective input form will be transmitted to the responsible data processor. The registration for our newsletter is performed in a so-called double opt-in procedure. This means that after registration you will receive an e-mail in which you are asked to confirm your registration. This confirmation is necessary so that no one can register with other people's e-mail addresses. When registering for the newsletter, the user's IP address and the date and time of registration are stored. This serves to prevent misuse of the services or the e-mail address of the respective person. No data is passed on to third parties. An exception to this occurs if there is a legal obligation to pass on the data. The data is used exclusively for sending the newsletter. The subscription to the newsletter can be cancelled by the subscriber at any time. Likewise, consent to the storage of personal data can be withdrawn at any time. For this purpose, a corresponding link can be found in each newsletter. The legal basis for the data processing after the user has registered for the newsletter is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) DSGVO if the user has given his or her consent. The legal basis for sending the newsletter as a result of the sale of goods or services is Section 7 (3) UWG.

Use of rapidmail

Description and purpose: We use rapidmail to send newsletters. The provider is rapidmail GmbH, Wentzingerstraße 21, 79106 Freiburg, Germany. Among other things, rapidmail is used to organise and analyse the distribution of newsletters. The data you enter in order to receive the newsletter will be stored on rapidmail's servers in Germany. If you do not wish to have your data analysed by rapidmail, you must unsubscribe from the newsletter. For this purpose, we provide a corresponding link in every newsletter message. For analysis purposes, the e-mails sent with rapidmail contain a so-called tracking pixel, which connects to the servers of rapidmail when the e-mail is opened. In this way, it can be determined whether a newsletter message has been opened. Furthermore, with the help of rapidmail we can determine whether and which links in the newsletter message are clicked. Optionally, links in the email can be set as tracking links with which your clicks can be counted.

Legal basis: The legal basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) DSGVO.

Recipient: The recipient of the data is rapidmail GmbH.

Transmission to third countries: There is no transfer of data to third countries.

Duration: The data stored by us in the context of your consent for the purpose of the newsletter will be stored by us until you unsubscribe from the newsletter and deleted from our servers as well as from the servers of rapidmail after you unsubscribe from the newsletter. Data stored by us for other purposes remain unaffected by this.

Withdrawal option: You have the option of withdrawing your consent to data processing at any time with effect for the future. The legality of the data processing operations already carried out remains unaffected by the withdrawal.
