What data from me does Dräger process?

When you visit our website, we process personal data that your browser transmits to our server. This data (so-called log files) is technically necessary to display our website and to ensure stability and security.

Log files record the following data:

  • IP address
  • Date and time of the request
  • Address of the request (URL)
  • Meta information such as amount of data returned, time taken,
  • Request and response header information like HTTP Status (e.g. successful or failed), web page from which the request originated, user information indicating browser, operating system and versions

The processing is based on Art. 6 (1) lit. f) GDPR to protect our legitimate interest in the trouble-free operation of our website.

We also process personal data that you voluntarily share with us as part of a contract, a survey, in the processing of your request, or your registration, or when you log in. You can find out more under the section “For what purposes does Dräger use my data?”


Does Dräger use cookies?

In order to make our offer as user-friendly as possible, we also use so-called cookies and similar technologies, as do many other companies.

What are cookies?

Cookies are small text files that your browser automatically creates and that are stored on your end device (e.g. laptop) when you visit our website. Information is stored in the cookie that arises in each case in connection with the specific end device used. However, this does not mean that we gain direct knowledge of your identity. The use of cookies serves to make the use of our offers continuously more pleasant and suitable for you. For example, we use so-called session cookies to recognise that you have already visited individual pages of our website. This enables you, for example, to place individual products that you find on our website in your shopping basket without having to create a customer account or be logged into one. The session cookies are automatically deleted after you leave our website.

 In addition, we also use so-called temporary cookies for the purpose of user-friendliness, which are stored on your end device for a certain fixed period of time. As soon as you visit our website again, it is automatically recognised that you have already been with us and which entries and settings you have made so that you do not have to enter them again.

Usually the temporary cookies are deleted after 30 days. In addition to our own cookies, we also use cookies from third-party providers (so-called third-party-cookies) to statistically record the use of our website and to evaluate it for the purpose of optimising our offer for you, as well as to display information and advertising tailored specifically to you. These cookies also enable us to recognise that you have already been to our website when you visit it again. These cookies are automatically deleted after a set period of time. We explain the individual cookies from third-party providers we use in more detail in the following points.

Cookie-Settings

Most browsers accept cookies automatically. However, you can also set your browser so that no cookies are stored on your end device or a message always appears before a new cookie is created In addition, you have the option of deciding for yourself which non “Technically required” cookies you wish to accept and which you do not wish to accept via the Cookie-Settings link in the footer.

You can change these settings at any time and also deactivate already activated cookies by selecting and deselecting the individual cookie groups, e.g. "Functional", "Statistics" or “Marketing”, and thus revoke any consent you may have given. In this way, the use of cookies becomes transparent for you. Please note, however, that the deactivation of certain cookie groups or the complete deactivation of cookies may mean that you cannot use all the functions of our website without restriction.

Legal Basis for the use of Cookies

The processing of personal data collected by means of cookies, which are technically necessary for the provision of our offers, is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 (1) f) GDPR to protect our legitimate interest in the trouble-free provision of our offers on our website. Otherwise, we process your personal data in connection with cookies (in particular for the provision of certain functionalities, for analysis and advertising purposes and in connection with the third-party providers described below) only if you have given us prior consent to do so in accordance with Art. 6 (1) a) GDPR. The processing is for the purpose of advertising, market research and the design of our website to meet your needs.

 

What tools does Dräger use for analysis and marketing?

When you visit our website, information about its use is automatically collected. This information is important to Dräger because it is the only way for us to find out what content on our websites is interesting to you and how we can continue to improve our services for you in the future. To do so, we use the following:

Adobe Analytics

This website uses the web analytics service Adobe Analytics to evaluate user access to this website. For the analysis, cookies are stored on your terminal device and information is collected about it, which is also stored on servers of our contract processor Adobe Systems Software Ireland Limited, located at 4-6 Riverwalk, Citywest Business Park 0000 Dublin 24, Ireland ("Adobe").

The information stored on Adobe servers cannot be directly linked to a specific person because Adobe Analytics is used with the settings "Before Geo-Lookup: Replace visitor's last IP octet with 0" and "Obfuscate IP-Removed". The setting "Before Geo-Lookup: Replace visitor's last IP octet with 0" ensures that the IP address is anonymized by replacing the last octet of the IP address with zeros before this so-called geolocation. The approximate location of the user is added to the tracking packet that still contains the full IP address for statistical analysis. Before the tracking packet is stored, the IP address is then replaced with a single fixed IP address - this is called a generic IP address - if the "Obfuscate IP -Removed" setting is configured. This means that the IP address is no longer included in a stored record.

We only use Adobe Analytics in connection with your personal data if you have given us your express consent in advance. Your consent is also the legal basis for the use of Adobe Analytics pursuant to Art. 6 (1) a) GDPR. You can decide yourself about the setting of cookies as described above in your Cookie-Settings on our website and, in particular, deactivate already activated cookies from Adobe Analytics by deselecting the cookie group "Statistics" and thus revoking your consent. In addition, you can also disable the setting of cookies altogether in your browser settings. Your personal data collected in connection with Adobe will be deleted or anonymized after 24 months.

Data processing by Adobe Analytics is governed by Adobe's privacy policy. Learn more about Adobe Analytics' privacy policy at https://www.adobe.com/de/privacy/policy.html

HubSpot

For our online marketing activities, we use HubSpot, an integrated software solution from HubSpot, Inc, 25 First Street, Cambridge, MA 02141 USA or HubSpot European Office, Ground Floor, Two Dockland Central, Guild Street, Dublin 1, Ireland ("HupSpot") that allows us to cover a wide range of aspects, including:

  • e-mail marketing (newsletter, banner and automated e-mails, e.g. to provide downloads)
  • social media publishing and reporting
  • reporting (e.g., sources of traffic, access, etc.)
  • contact management (e.g., user segmentation and customer relationship management)
  • landing pages, blogs, and contact forms
  • services (live-chat, chat-bots, ticket system, polls, knowledge databases)

In addition, we use HubSpot's tracking tool for our online marketing activities on our website with your consent. HubSpot uses cookies to enable an analysis of your use of the website by us. HubSpot evaluates the collected information (e.g. IP address, timestamp, geographical location, type of browser, duration of visit and pages viewed) on our behalf so that we can generate reports about the visit and the pages visited. Information collected by HubSpot and the content of our website is stored on servers of HubSpot's service providers. The legal basis for the processing is your consent pursuant to Art. 6 (1) a) GDPR, which you can revoke at any time by deselecting the cookie group "Statistics" with effect for the future. The cookies and the personal data collected in the context with the HubSpot tracking tool will be deleted or anonymized after 13 months at the latest. Insofar as the data is transferred to HubSpot Inc. in individual cases, this is done on the basis of the EU Model Clauses pursuant to Art. 46 (2) lit. d) GDPR, to which HubSpot Inc. submits.

For more information about privacy, see HubSpot's Data Privacy Policy at https://legal.hubspot.com/de/privacy-policy, Cookie Policy at https://legal.hubspot.com/de/cookie-policy, and HubSpot's Knowledge pages at https://knowledge.hubspot.com/de/reports/what-cookies-does-hubspot-set-in-a-visitor-s-browser#cookies-from-third-party-systems.

Google Ads

We also use the online advertising program Google Ads from Google LLC, Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA ("Google Ads") and conversion tracking to measure the effectiveness of individual ads, offers and functions. For this purpose, a cookie is set on your terminal device as soon as you click on a Google ad. This cookie is not used for personal identification, but is intended to determine whether you return to the website with the specific offer during the cookie's validity of 30 days.

Each Google Ads customer generally receives a different cookie. Cookies can therefore not be tracked through the website of Google Ads customers. The information obtained using the conversion cookie is used to create conversion statistics for Google Ads customers who have opted in to conversion tracking. We learn the total number of users who clicked on an ad and were redirected to a website tagged with a conversion tracking tag. The data collected in this way is generally only transmitted in anonymized form to Google servers in the USA and stored there.

We only use Google Ads in connection with your personal data if you have previously given us your express consent, which is the legal basis for the use of Google AdWords pursuant to Art. 6 (1) a) GDPR. You can decide yourself about the setting of cookies as described above in your cookie settings on our website and in particular deactivate previously activated cookies by deselecting the cookie group "Marketing" and thus revoke your consent. In addition, you can deactivate the setting of cookies altogether in the settings of your browser. Your personal data collected in connection with Google Ads will be deleted or anonymized after 1 month (in relation to the IP address) or 3 months (in relation to cookie information). 

Google Analytics (with anonymization)

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google LLC, Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA ("Google Analytics"). We use Google Analytics to analyze and regularly improve the use of our website. The statistics obtained allow us to improve our offer and make it more interesting for you as a user. Google Analytics uses methods, such as cookies, which enable an analysis of your use of the website. The information generated about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. By activating IP anonymization on this website, the IP address is shortened before transmission within the Member States of the European Union or in other contracting states 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 USA and shortened there. On our behalf, Google will use the collected information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services relating to website activity to us. The anonymized IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with any other data held by Google.

We only use Google Analytics in connection with your personal data if you have given us your express consent in advance. Your consent is also the legal basis for the use of Google Analytics pursuant to Art. 6 (1) a) GDPR. You can decide yourself about the setting of cookies as described above in your cookie settings on our website and in particular deactivate previously activated cookies by deselecting the cookie group "Marketing" and thus revoke your consent. In addition, you can also deactivate the setting of cookies altogether in the settings of your browser. Your personal data collected in connection with Google Analytics will be deleted or anonymized after 14 months.

In addition, you will find further information on setting and objection options and on data protection at Google as a whole in Google's general data protection declaration at https://policies.google.com/privacy

Facebook Pixel, Facebook Custom Audiences and Facebook-Conversion

On our websites, we use the so-called "Facebook Pixel" from Facebook, which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA, or Facebook Ireland Ltd, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland ("Facebook").

With the help of the Facebook pixel, Facebook can determine visitors to our websites as a target group for the display of ads (so-called "Facebook ads"). Accordingly, we use Facebook Pixel to display Facebook Ads placed by us only to those Facebook users who also have an interest in our websites or who have certain characteristics (e.g. interests in certain topics or products determined on the basis of the websites visited) that we transmit to Facebook (so-called "Custom Audiences"). With the help of the Facebook pixel, we also want to ensure that our Facebook ads correspond to the potential interest of users and do not have a harassing effect. With the help of the Facebook pixel, we can further track the effectiveness of the Facebook ads for statistical and market research purposes by seeing whether users were redirected to our website after clicking on a Facebook ad (so-called "conversion").

We only use the Facebook pixel if you have given us your express consent beforehand. Your consent is also the legal basis for the use of the Facebook Pixel pursuant to Art. 6 (1) a) GDPR. You can decide yourself about the setting of cookies as described above in your cookie settings on our website and in particular deactivate previously activated cookies by deselecting the cookie group "Marketing" and thus revoke your consent. In addition, you can also deactivate the setting of cookies altogether in your browser settings. Your personal data collected in connection with Facebook Pixel will be deleted or anonymized after 14 months.

The processing of data and general information on the display of Facebook ads by Facebook is carried out within the framework of the data policy of Facebook https://www.facebook.com/policy.php. Specific information and details about the Facebook pixel and how it works can be found in Facebook's help area.

LinkedIn (Insights-Tag)

Furthermore, we use the so-called conversion tracking with LinkedIn Insights Tag, a tool of LinkedIn Ireland, Wilton Plaza, Wilton Place, Dublin 2, Ireland, on our website. For this purpose, the LinkedIn Insight Tag is integrated on our pages and a cookie is set on your end device by LinkedIn. This informs LinkedIn that you have visited our web pages, whereby your IP address is also collected. In addition, timestamps and events such as page views are stored. This enables us to statistically evaluate the use of our website in order to constantly optimize it. We learn, for example, through which LinkedIn ad or interaction on LinkedIn you came to our website. This allows us to better control the display of our advertising.

We only use the insights tags if you have given us your express consent beforehand. Your consent is also the legal basis for the use of the pursuant to Art. 6 (1) lit. a) GDPR. You can decide yourself about the setting of cookies as described above in your cookie settings on our website and in particular deactivate previously activated cookies by deselecting the cookie group "Marketing" and thus revoke your consent. In addition, you can also deactivate the setting of cookies altogether in your browser settings. Your personal data collected in connection with the LinkedIn Insights tag will be deleted or anonymized after 90 days.

For more information on conversion tracking, please visit https://www.linkedin.com/help/linkedin/answer/a420536/linkedin-conversion-trackingubersicht. Please note that the data may be stored and processed by LinkedIn so that a connection to the respective user profile is possible and LinkedIn may use the data for its own advertising purposes. For more information, please see LinkedIn's privacy policy at https://de.linkedin.com/legal/privacy-policy?. You can prevent the analysis of your usage behavior by LinkedIn as well as the display of interest-based recommendations via https://www.linkedin.com/psettings/guest-controls/retargeting-opt-out.

For what purposes does Dräger use my data?

We collect and process data solely for purposes defined in advance, which may result from technical necessity, contractual stipulations, or express user requests. Furthermore, we will only use your data if you have given your advance consent for us to do so. Some of our online services, such as our applicant portal, are available only to registered users who have logged in as such. This registration is used to manage your ability to access and use the respective functions. We will request the personal data that is collected and stored when you log in as part of the respective online service.

Please see below or consult the terms of use of the respective online services for more information about the storage, processing, and purpose of collecting your data. 

Dräger collects your data for the following purposes:

Applicant management

The following section applies to the processing of your application-related data on our careers website.

 Are you interested in registering as an applicant on Dräger’s careers website? Then you need to create a user account first. A user account consists of at least the following information:


  • first name
  • last name
  • e-mail address and telephone number
  • username
  • password

 

We are required to maintain records of your user account. We will retain these records for a period of six months after which you will be asked to consent to the data processing again. Your account will then be retained for additional six months once you have given your consent. If your account’s retention period is about to expire and you are still in the middle of applying for a position at Dräger the period will be extended until your application process has been completed.

Application-related data

We will save information you give us through the careers’ website as part of your application along with your name for up to three months after the application process has been completed. After that, the results will be saved only in anonymized form for statistical evaluation. It is not possible to draw any conclusions regarding your person based on this statistical data.

Identification of rejected applicants

Was your application to work at Dräger unsuccessful? In this case, we will save a data set to identify you in case you apply again for the same position at Dräger. However, this data set does not contain your entire professional qualifications.

The identification data set contains the following information: 

• last name

• first name

• date of birth

• e-mail address

• applicant number

The identification data set will be permanently deleted no later than three months after the end of the application process.

Application at multiple Group companies at the same time
Have you applied for multiple positions at different Dräger companies at the same time? In that case, the respective HR departments to which you directly submitted your application may be informed that you have filed multiple applications at the same time.

Accessibility of applicant data

Have you applied for a specific position (direct application)? Then your data will be made accessible to the department advertising the job as well as the appropriate HR department.

Talent Pool

With your consent, we will include your application data in a talent pool for a period of six months.  In this talent pool, we store your contact and application data to find potentially suitable candidates for vacant positions. In such a case, we will contact you from us.

Security in handling personal data

Your data will be automatically encrypted during transmission. The steps we take to secure your data are always in line with the latest technology.

Online test for trainees (Germany)

  • personal master data (e.g., first and last name, address, date of birth)
  • communication data (e.g., e-mail address, telephone number)
  • data on personal structure and cognitive abilities based on answers given during the online test

 This data will be deleted after completion of the application process. The aforementioned time limits for the deletion of data nevertheless also apply to the applicant’s user account.

The legal basis for the processing of this data is the following declaration of consent given by you within the meaning of Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR:

Processing of personal data: Yes, I agree that Dräger processes my personal data for processing my application in accordance with the data protection declaration.

E-mail marketing

Have you signed up for one of our newsletters or stated your interest in information from Dräger in another context (e.g., when filling out a contact form)? If this is the case, we are then able to use your e-mail address to send you information (e.g., invitations to events, webinars, or product information) on the basis of your interests. You may object to the use of your data at any time if you are no longer interested in our information. To do so, simply click the “Cancel” link in the respective newsletter.

The legal basis for the processing of this data is the declaration of consent given by you within the meaning of Article 6 (1) a) GDPR.

Contacting you

Have you used one of our contact forms to request information about products and services from Dräger? Generally speaking, we use the data you state in the form to process your request. You can also give us your separate consent before sending your contact request if you are also interested in additional information, such as invitations to events, webinars, or product information.

The legal basis for the processing of this data is the declaration of consent given by you within the meaning of Article 6 (1) b) GDPR .

Provision of goods or services

When you order goods or services from Dräger, we use the personal data you provide to us to process your order or deliver the requested goods. We may also use the personal data you provided to carry out the necessary steps prior to concluding the contract, answer your related questions, send shipping and billing information and processing or providing of customer feedback and support.

The legal basis for the processing of this data is the performance of a contract or the planned conclusion of a contract within the meaning of Article 6 (1) b) GDPR.

In order to technically process your personal data, Dräger uses external service providers and contract processors to provide goods or services. These include, for example, operators of eLearning platforms and web shops. You will find more detailed information in the applicable terms of use or general terms and conditions.

 Depending on which payment service provider you select in the order process, we will pass on the payment data collected for this purpose to payment service providers commissioned by us or to the selected payment service for the processing of payments. In some cases, the selected payment service providers may also collect this data from you themselves, if you open an account there. In this case, you must log on to the payment service provider with your access data during the ordering process. In this respect, the data protection declaration of the respective payment service provider applies. 

Customer satisfaction surveys

Have you recently purchased a Dräger product, sent in a repair or made a request for a service? We are very interested in finding out whether you were satisfied with the service we provided and whether we can do anything differently in the future. We therefore use the contact data shared in this context to contact a group of customers selected at random following our interaction with them. To contact customers, Dräger may sometimes use external service providers with whom corresponding data protection agreements are in place.

The legal basis for the processing of this data is our legitimate interest within the meaning of Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest is derived from the following purposes of data collection: determining the satisfaction of current Dräger customers following the purchase or repair of a Dräger product. Since you are already a Dräger customer at that time, we presume that you agree to us contacting you to find out whether you are satisfied with us.

Website optimization

We aim to continue making our website better for you. To do so, we use various web analysis tools that provide us with answers to specific questions, such as: Which of our pages have you visited? Which links have you clicked? You can find a list of these tools under “What tools does Dräger use for analysis and marketing?”

The legal basis for the processing of this data is Article 6 (1) f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest is derived from the following purposes of data collection: ensuring a smooth connection, ensuring the convenient use of our website and/or application, and the analysis of system security and stability.

Does Dräger share my information with others?

Dräger reserves the right to share the data you transmit to us with our subsidiaries and specialist retailers (dealers) throughout the world. However, we share it only if doing so is necessary to process your data for its intended purpose.

Dräger sometimes uses external service providers for the technical processing of your data. We may transmit and process your data outside the country in which you reside or in one of the countries in which Dräger, its subsidiaries, specialist retailers (dealers), or service providers and suppliers operate. Such entities may be based outside the European Economic Area. Contractual obligations to comply with the provisions under data protection law are in place within the company and in our dealings with our specialist retailers (dealers), service providers, and suppliers.

Is data transferred to countries outside the EU or the EEA?

In principle, the processing of personal data by us takes place exclusively within the EU or the European Economic Area.

In individual cases, however, it may be necessary for us to transfer information to recipients in so-called "third countries". "Third countries" are countries outside the European Union or the Agreement on the European Economic Area in which it cannot be assumed without further ado that the level of data protection is comparable to that in the European Union. If the information transferred also includes personal data, we will ensure before such transfer that the required adequate level of data protection is guaranteed in the respective third country or at the recipient in the third country. This may result in particular from a so-called "adequacy decision" of the European Commission, which establishes an adequate level of data protection for a specific third country as a whole. Alternatively, we may also base the data transfer on the so-called EU standard contractual clauses agreed with a recipient or on a declaration of consent provided by you accordingly.

We will be happy to provide you with further information on the appropriate and adequate safeguards for compliance with an adequate level of data protection upon request. You can find more information on the so-called EU standard contractual clauses at https://ec.europa.eu/info/law/law-topic/data-protection/international-dimension-data-protection/standard-contractual-clauses-scc_en and information on the adequacy decisions at https://ec.europa.eu/info/law/law-topic/data-protection/international-dimension-data-protection/adequacy-decisions_en.

How long is personal data stored?

In principle, we store personal data as long as this is necessary for the purpose of processing or we have a legitimate interest in this storage and your interests in not continuing the storage or processing do not outweigh. This means that we generally only store your data for as long as this is necessary to provide our website and the associated services, or we are legally obliged to store this data. We also delete personal data without any action on the part of the respective data subject as soon as it is no longer required for the processing purpose or the storage is otherwise legally inadmissible.

As a rule

  • the data is deleted or anonymized after the period of time specified above for the respective data processing or website function described in more detail;
  • the data processed in connection with a business relationship (in particular in connection with products ordered from us) will be deleted after expiry of the statutory retention periods; and
  • the data processed in connection with the customer account will be deleted upon deletion of the respective customer account, unless further storage is required to comply with legal or contractual retention periods in connection with the respective business relationship.

Those personal data that we have to store to fulfil retention obligations will be stored until the end of the respective retention obligation. Insofar as we store personal data exclusively for the fulfilment of retention obligations, the processing in this regard is generally restricted so that it can only be accessed if this is necessary with regard to the purpose of the retention obligation.

What plug-ins does Dräger use?

In addition to its website, Dräger also maintains online presences within social networks and platforms. This is how we communicate with our active customers, interested parties and online visitors (users). User data can also be processed outside the European Union. There may be risks for users due to the more difficult enforcement of their rights. User data is often processed for market research and advertising purposes and can be used to create user profiles based on user behaviour and the resulting interests. On the basis of these user profiles, advertisements can be placed inside and outside the platforms that are intended to correspond to the interests of the users.  The user profiles also store data independent of the devices used by the users.

The processing of users' personal data, e.g. when communicating on social media, is based on our legitimate interests in effectively informing users and communicating with users pursuant to Art. 6 (1) f) GDPR.  If content from the respective providers of the platforms is integrated into our websites, the legal basis of the processing is Art. 6 (1) a) GDPR. Please inform yourself about the further presentation of the respective processing and the objection options and familiarize yourself with the information of the providers linked below.

Instagram

We use a feed of the service Instagram on our website. Instagram is an audio-visual social media platform that allows users to share photos and videos and redistribute such data on other social networks ("Instagram"). The operating company of the Instagram services for users in the European Economic Area is Facebook Ireland Ltd, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2 Ireland.

The Instagram feed is integrated into our website via an iFrame and ensures that we can show you our Instagram content (such as photos and videos) on our website. The feed is disabled (grayed out) by default. Only when you click on the "I agree" button does your browser make a request to the Instagram media server, which also transmits your IP address so that the iFrame with our Instagram content can be displayed to you. This is technically necessary for the transmission. The legal basis for this is Art. 6 (1) a) GDPR.

Our websites also contain links to our Instagram account so that you can follow us on Instagram.

Further information on data protection and your rights and settings options in this regard are available in Instagram's privacy policy at https://help.instagram.com/155833707900388/.

YouTube

We have embedded videos from the YouTube video service of YouTube LLC, 901 Cherry Ave, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA, a subsidiary of Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA, on our website, whereby the video services are provided in the European Economic Area and in Switzerland by the European Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland ("YouTube").

We only use the embedded YouTube videos in the so-called extended data protection mode. This means that YouTube does not store cookies for users who only visit the website with the embedded YouTube video and do not click on the video to start the playback of the YouTube video. If you click on the embedded YouTube video player on our website, YouTube may store cookies on your end device and may receive personal data from you. If you are logged in to YouTube at the same time, YouTube can assign any collected data to your YouTube account.

If you do not wish this, please do not use this function or start the YouTube videos. The processing of personal data collected in the context of the use of YouTube is based on Art. 6 (1) a) GDPR due to the declaration of consent you have given to play the respective video. Your consent can be revoked at any time for the future.

Further information on YouTube can be found at https://www.youtube.com/intl/de/howyoutubeworks/. Information on data processing and notes on data protection by YouTube can be found in the general data protection declaration of Google https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=de&gl=de.

Slideshare

We also use Slideshare on certain individual Dräger websites to display our own presentations. Slideshare is a service operated by LinkedIn for sharing information such as presentations. Personal data about you is transmitted to slideshare.com, Google Analytics, and comScore as soon as you start one of our presentations. For your protection, we have embedded Slideshare with a double-click solution, which requires you to give your explicit consent before you use Slideshare. In addition, a cookie is set in your browser, and your data is transmitted to the US and stored there. Dräger has no control over this process, and Dräger has no knowledge of the scope of the data collection, the purpose, or the duration of storage by these services. comScore uses your data to create use profiles for marketing purposes, market research, and needs-based design of websites in order to provide needs-based advertising. Please contact comScore directly if you wish to exercise your right to object to this use.

For information about the collection of data (purpose, extent, further processing and use) by LinkedIn and comScore, as well as your rights in this regard and settings to protect your privacy, please see the following privacy policies:

LinkedIn: LinkedIn Ireland, Wilton Plaza, Wilton Place, Dublin 2, Ireland, https://de.linkedin.com/legal/privacy-policy?

What rights do I have as a data subject?

As a person affected by data processing within the meaning of Article 4 No. 1 of the GDPR, you have various rights vis-à-vis us, which we would like to inform you about in more detail below. You can also find details on this directly in Articles 15 to 21 of the GDPR.

In order to exercise these rights, you can simply contact our Group Data Protection Officer, whose contact details are provided above, or conveniently use the technical means provided by us (e.g., the cookie settings for managing or revoking consent given via this).

Right of access, Art. 15 GDPR

You have the right to receive information from us about whether and what data we process about you. This includes, among other things, information about how long and for what purpose we process the data, where it comes from and to which recipients or categories of recipients, we pass it on. In addition, we can provide you with a copy of this data.

Right to rectification, Art. 16 GDPR

As a data subject, you have the right to request that we correct information about you that is not or no longer accurate without delay. In addition, you can request that we complete your incomplete personal data. If required by law, we will also inform third parties about this correction if we have disclosed your data to them.

Right to erasure (so-called "right to be forgotten"), Art. 17 GDPR

As a data subject, you have the right to request that we delete your personal data without delay if one of the following reasons applies:

  • Your data is no longer necessary for the purposes for which it was collected or otherwise processed, or the purpose has been achieved;
  • You revoke consent and there is no other legal basis for processing;
  • You object to the processing and there are no overriding legitimate grounds for the processing; in the case of use of personal data for direct marketing, a sole objection by you to the processing is sufficient;
  • your personal data have been processed unlawfully;
  • the erasure of your personal data is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation under Union or Member State law to which we are subject.

Please note that your right to deletion may be restricted by legal provisions. These include in particular the restrictions listed in Art.17 GDPR.

Right to restriction of processing (blocking), Art. 18 GDPR

As a data subject, you also have the right to request us to restrict the processing of your personal data if one of the following conditions is met:

  • you contest the accuracy of your personal data for a period of time sufficient to enable us to verify the accuracy of the personal data;
  • the processing is unlawful and you object to the erasure of the personal data and request instead the restriction of the use of your personal data;
  • we no longer need your personal data for the purposes of processing, but you need it for the assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims; or
  • You have objected to the processing as long as it has not yet been determined whether our legitimate grounds outweigh yours.

If you have obtained a restriction on processing in accordance with the above list, we will inform you before the restriction is lifted.

Right of withdrawal for consents, Art. 7 (3) GDPR

You may revoke any consent given to us at any time with effect for the future. This revocation can take the form of an informal message to the above contact addresses or via the technical means provided by us for this purpose. If you revoke your consent, the legality of the data processing carried out up to that point will not be affected.

Right to data portability, Art. 20 GDPR

As a data subject, you have the right to receive personal data concerning you that you have provided to us in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format and to transmit this data to others. Details and restrictions can be found in Art. 20 GDPR. The exercise of this right does not affect your right to erasure.

Right to complain to the supervisory authority, Art. 77 GDPR

If you believe that the processing of your data by us violates applicable data protection law, you have the right to lodge a complaint with one of the competent supervisory authorities or the respective supervisory authority in the member state of your place of residence, your place of work or the place of the alleged data protection violation.

Right to object, Art. 21 GDPR

As the data subject, you have the right to object at any time, on grounds relating to your particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning you which is carried out on the basis of Article 6(1) (e) or (f) GDPR; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions. In the event of such an objection, we will no longer process the personal data concerning you, unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms as a data subject, or for the assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims.

If we process personal data for the purpose of direct marketing, you as the data subject have the right to object at any time to processing of personal data concerning you for such marketing; this also applies to profiling insofar as it is related to such direct marketing.

If you, as the data subject, object to processing for direct marketing purposes, we will no longer process the personal data concerned for these purposes.
