 4 Legal basis of the processing

Article 6(1)(a) GDPR (in conjunction with Section 25(1) TTDSG) 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 a party, as is the case, for example, with processing operations that are necessary for the delivery of goods or the provision of another service or consideration, the processing is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) GDPR. The same applies to such processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of inquiries about our products or services.

If our company is subject to a legal obligation which requires the processing of personal data, such as for the fulfillment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c) GDPR.

Ultimately, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR. Processing operations that are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases are based on this legal basis if the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not prevail. We are permitted to carry out such processing operations in particular because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In this respect, it took the view that a legitimate interest could be assumed if you are a customer of our company (Recital 47 Sentence 2 GDPR).

5. technology

a. SSL/TLS encryption

This site uses SSL or TLS encryption to ensure the security of data processing and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders, login data or contact requests that you send to us as the operator. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the "https://" instead of "http://" in the address line of the browser and by the lock symbol in your browser line. We use this technology to protect your transmitted data.

b. Data collection when visiting the website

If you only use our website for information purposes, i.e. if you do not register or otherwise transmit information to us, we only collect the data that your browser transmits to our server (in so-called "server log files"). Our website collects a range of general data and information each time you or an automated system accesses a page. This general data and information is stored in the server log files. The following can be recorded

  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 referrer)
  4. the sub-websites which are accessed via an accessing system on our website
  5. the date and time of access to the website
  6. an internet protocol address (anonymized IP address) and,
  7. the Internet service provider of the accessing system.

When using this general data and information, we do not draw any conclusions about your person. Rather, this information is required in order to

  1. deliver the content of our website correctly
  2. optimize the content of our website and the advertising for it
  3. ensure the long-term functionality of our IT systems and the technology of our website, and
  4. to provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for prosecution in the event of a cyber attack.

This collected data and information is therefore evaluated by us both statistically and with the aim of increasing data protection and data security in our company in order to ultimately ensure an optimum level of protection for the personal data processed by us. The data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by a data subject and deleted after 10 days.

The legal basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR. Our legitimate interest follows from the data collection purposes listed above.

6 Hosting by Mittwald

We host our Typo3 website at Mittwald CM Service GmbH & Co. KG, Königsberger Straße 4-6, 32339 Espelkamp (hereinafter referred to as Mittwald). When you visit our website, your personal data (e.g. IP addresses in log files) are processed on Mittwald's servers. Mittwald is used on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR. We have a legitimate interest in the most reliable presentation, provision and security of our website. We have concluded a data processing agreement (DPA) with Mittwald in accordance with Art. 28 GDPR. This is a contract prescribed by data protection law, which ensures that Mittwald processes the personal data of our website visitors only in accordance with our instructions and in compliance with the GDPR.

7. content and contact options

Our website provides you with information about the Leitenberger Group. We also inform you about our current vacancies and a career at Leitenberger online and also offer you the opportunity to send us an unsolicited application.

We offer you various other options for contacting and communicating with us, for example through our newsletter or contact forms:

a. Contact via e-mail

If you contact us via one of the e-mail addresses provided by us, the personal data you provide will be processed exclusively for the purpose of processing your respective request, for correspondence with you, as well as for the possible initiation and justification of a contract, for inquiries for products and complaints etc. with you in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. b) GDPR. The personal data collected will be automatically deleted after your request has been dealt with; this is the case if it can be inferred from the circumstances that the matter in question has been conclusively clarified and provided that there are no statutory retention obligations to the contrary.

b. Job applications

We collect and process the personal data of applicants for the purpose of handling the application process. Processing may also be carried out electronically. This is particularly the case if job applicants send their application documents to us electronically, for example by e-mail. If we conclude an employment or service contract with applicants, the transmitted data will be stored for the purpose of processing the employment relationship in compliance with the statutory provisions. If we do not conclude a contract with the applicant, the application documents will be automatically deleted two months after notification of the rejection decision, provided that no other legitimate interests on our part prevent deletion. Another legitimate interest in this sense is, for example, a burden of proof in proceedings under the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG). The legal basis for processing your data to initiate an employment contract is Art. 6 I lit. b) GDPR.

8. web analysis with Matomo

We have integrated the Matomo component of the provider InnoCraft Ltd, 150 Willis St, 6011 Wellington, New Zealand, for web analysis on this website. Web analysis is the collection, compilation and evaluation of data about the behavior of visitors to websites. Among other things, a web analysis tool collects data on which subpages of the website were accessed or how often and for how long a subpage was viewed. Web analysis is mainly used to optimize a website and for the cost-benefit analysis of Internet advertising.

The software is operated on our server and the log data, which is sensitive under data protection law, is stored exclusively on this server. The purpose of the Matomo component is to analyze the flow of visitors to our website. We use the information to understand the behavior on our site, to evaluate the use of our subpages and to make possible improvements. As we do not sell any products via the site or engage in direct marketing, we are not interested in the identities of our visitors or other data. We have therefore configured Matomo so that it does not use cookies. We also do not use so-called "device fingerprinting".

Each time you access one of the individual pages of this website, your Internet browser on your device is automatically prompted by the Matomo component to transmit data to our server for the purpose of online analysis. Your browser transmits personal information such as the access time, the location from which the access was made, including the IP address of the Internet access you are using, to our server. This personal data is stored by us in anonymized form. We do not pass this personal data on to third parties. No data is transferred to third countries.

Matomo processes the following data:

  • Anonymized IP addresses by removing the last 2 bytes (i.e. instead of
  • Pseudo-anonymized location (based on the anonymized IP address)
  • Date and time
  • Title of the page accessed
  • URL of the page accessed
  • URL of the previous page (if this is permitted)
  • Screen resolution
  • Local time
  • Files that have been clicked and downloaded
  • External links
  • Duration of the page load
  • Country, region, city (with low accuracy due to IP address)
  • Main language of the browser
  • User agent of the browser

You have the option to object to the collection of data relating to the use of this website and generated by Matomo, as well as to the processing of this data by Matomo and to exclude this. To do this, you must set the "Do not track" option in your browser. We have set up Matomo so that this setting is taken into account. If you do not want this for any reason, please deactivate the checkbox at the end of the privacy policy.

You have the option of preventing the actions you take here from being analyzed and linked. This will protect your privacy, but will also prevent the owner from learning from your actions and improving usability for you and other users.
