Please bear in mind that data transmission on the Internet can always be subject to security vulnerabilities. Complete protection against access by third parties is not possible.

The data collected is only used for statistical evaluations.

However, ophelis GmbH reserves the right to check the server log files retrospectively if there are concrete indications of illegal use.

Handling of personal data
ophelis GmbH only collects, uses and discloses your personal data if this is permitted by law or if you consent to the collection of such data.
Personal data is any information that can be used to identify you personally and that can be traced back to you – for example, your name, e-mail address and telephone number.

If you contact ophelis GmbH using the contact options provided, your details will be stored so that they can be used to process and respond to your enquiry. This data will not be passed on to third parties without your consent.

Web analysis using Matomo

We use the software “Matomo” (www.matomo.org) on this website, a service of the provider InnoCraft Ltd, 150 Willis St, 6011 Wellington, New Zealand. If sub-pages of our website are called up, the following data is stored:

– the user’s IP address, shortened by the last two bytes (anonymised)

– the sub-page called up and the time of the call-up

– the page from which the user accessed our website (referrer)

– which browser with which plug-ins, which operating system and which screen resolution is used

– the time spent on the website

– the pages visited from the sub-page accessed

The data collected with Matomo is stored on our own servers. It is not passed on to third parties.

We collect the data in order to analyse the surfing behaviour of the users and to obtain information about the use of the individual components of the website. This enables us to continuously optimise the website and its user-friendliness. These purposes constitute our legitimate interest according to Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. By anonymising the IP address, we take into account the interest of users in the protection of personal data. The data is never used to personally identify the user of the website and is not merged with other data.

The IP addresses are anonymised (IP masking) so that an assignment to individual users is not possible.

The data is processed on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a DSGVO. We are thus pursuing our legitimate interest in optimising our website for our external presentation.

You can revoke your consent at any time by deleting the cookies in your browser or changing your data protection settings.

The data will be deleted when it is no longer required for our purposes.

Use of videos (e.g. YouTube, Vimeo)

YouTube
This website contains at least one plugin from YouTube, belonging to Google Inc., based in San Bruno/California, USA.
We use the YouTube no-cookies function, i.e. we have activated extended data protection, videos are not accessed via youtube.com, but via youtube-nocookie.com.

YouTube itself provides this and thus ensures that YouTube does not initially save any cookies on your device. However, when the relevant pages are called up, the IP address and the other data mentioned in section 4 are transmitted and thus, in particular, information is given as to which of our Internet pages you have visited. However, this information cannot be assigned to you if you are permanently logged in to YouTube or another Google service when you access the page.

As soon as you start the playback of an embedded video by clicking on it, YouTube only saves cookies on your device through the extended data protection mode, which do not contain any personally identifiable data, unless you are currently logged in to a Google service. These cookies can be prevented by appropriate browser settings and extensions.

Vimeo
This website uses at least one plugin from Vimeo. For technical reasons, the integration of Vimeo videos results in calls to the Vimeo server. Data from your browser or end device is transmitted to the Vimeo server. It is also transmitted which of our Internet pages you have visited.
For the use of data from your browser or terminal device in connection with the playing of a video, please refer to the provider’s data protection information. Further information on data processing and data protection by Vimeo can be found at https://vimeo.com/privacy.

Registration function
Users can optionally create a user account. Within the scope of registration, the required mandatory information is provided to the users. The data entered during registration is used for the purpose of using the offer. Users may be informed by e-mail about information relevant to the offer or registration, such as changes to the scope of the offer or technical circumstances. We are entitled to irretrievably delete all user data stored during the term of the contract.
Within the scope of the use of our registration and login functions as well as the use of the user account, we store the IP address and the time of the respective user action. The storage is based on our legitimate interests as well as those of the user in protection against misuse and other unauthorised use.

Newsletter subscription
ophelis offers you a newsletter in which it informs you about current events and activities. If you wish to subscribe to the newsletter, you must provide a valid e-mail address.
If you would like to subscribe to the newsletter offered on the website, we require an e-mail address from you as well as information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the e-mail address provided and that you agree to receive the newsletter.
We use the so-called double opt-in procedure to ensure that the newsletter is sent with your consent. In the course of this, the potential recipient allows himself/herself to be added to a distribution list. Subsequently, the user is given the opportunity to confirm the registration in a legally secure manner by means of a confirmation e-mail. Only if the confirmation is received will the address be actively included in the distribution list.
We use this data exclusively for sending the requested information and offers.

Sendinblue is used as the newsletter software. Your data will be transmitted to Sendinblue GmbH, Köpenickerstr. 126, 10179 Berlin. Sendinblue is a German, certified provider, which was selected according to the requirements of the German Data Protection Regulation and the German Federal Data Protection Act. Sendinblue is prohibited from selling your data and using it for purposes other than sending newsletters.
Further information can be found here: https://de.sendinblue.com/datenschutz-uebersicht/

You can revoke your consent to the storage of data, the email address and its use for sending the newsletter at any time, for example via the “unsubscribe” link in the newsletter.
The data protection measures are always subject to technical updates, for this reason we ask you to inform yourself about our data protection measures at regular intervals by consulting our data protection declaration.

Rights of the user: information, correction and deletion
As a user, you can request information free of charge about what personal data has been stored about you. Provided that your request does not conflict with a legal obligation to retain data (e.g. data retention), you have the right to have incorrect data corrected and to have your personal data blocked or deleted.
