Privacy policy

IDS Imaging Development Systems GmbH
The protection of your data is our concern.

I. What is personal data?

‘Personal data’ means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person; 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.

II. Purposes of data processing

The scope and nature of the collection, processing and use of your data differs depending on whether you visit our website simply to retrieve generally available information or to make use of additional services. In principle, we process your personal data in the context of our business activities for pre-contractual or contractual purposes. Additionally, exercising our legitimate interest or complying with legal requirements may also be the substantive purpose of our data processing operations. We have provided you with information about the relevant specific purposes of data processing in the sections below.

IV. Using our website for information purposes

We use an external service provider to host our website. The personal data collected on this website is stored on the hoster's servers. The hoster is used in the interest of a secure, fast and efficient provision of our website (Art. 6 para. I f) DSGVO). Our hoster will only process your data to the extent that this is necessary for the fulfillment of its performance obligations under the contractual obligations and instructions from us. We use Hetzner Online GmbH, Industriestr. 25, 91710 Gunzenhausen, Germany as our hoster. We have concluded an order processing contract with the hoster in accordance with Art. 28 DSGVO.

You do not need to provide personal data to use our website for purely informational purposes. Rather, in this case, when you access our website, we only record the data that your web browser sends to us automatically, such as:

  • The referrer (website visited previously)
  • The requested web page or file
  • The browser type and browser version
  • The operating system used
  • The type of device used
  • The time of access
  • The IP address used (in anonymised form)
  • Other similar data and information that serves to avert danger in the event of attacks on our IT systems.

This is usually done through the use of log files. The purpose of processing is to ensure our website’s functionality and compatibility for technically unproblematic use, including troubleshooting, as well as protection against technical attacks and misuse. The legal basis for this processing is our legitimate interest according to Art.  6 (1) (f) of the GDPR. Our legitimate interest lies in the proper operation of our website. The log file data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer required for the purpose of processing.
