The processing of your personal data such as your name,  address, email address or your telephone number is always carried out in  compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
The aim of this Data Protection Declaration is to inform you of  the type, scope and purpose of the personal data that we collect.
In  addition, we should like to inform you of your rights.
If we want to  offer you special services via our website or elsewhere, and if there  should be no legal basis for the necessary processing of the data in  this connection, we shall obtain your consent.

2. Recording of general data and information
Every time visited, this website records various general data and  information
These general data and information are stored in the  server’s log files.
It is possible that the following are recorded:
  • the type and version of browser used,
  • the operating system used by  the accessing system,
  • the internet site from which the accessing  system accesses our internet site (called referrer),
  • the  sub-websites that link to our internet site via an accessing system,
  • the date and time the internet site was accessed,
  • the internet  protocol address (IP address),
  • the internet service provider of the  accessing system and
  • other similar data and information that act as  an emergency response in the case of attacks on our IT systems.

In using these general data and information, it is impossible for Senze-Instruments to determine your identity.
No profiling is carried out. The  reason we need this information is rather to ensure that we keep the  contents of our website up to date, that we optimize the contents of our  website and the advertising for this, that we guarantee the permanent  functionality of our IT systems and the technology of our website as  well as to ensure that we are able to provide law enforcement  authorities with the necessary information for prosecution in the event  of a cyber attack.
Senze-Instruments Benelux analyzes these anonymously recorded data and information on a  statistical basis with the aim of increasing data protection and data  security in our company.
We save the anonymous data in the server log  files separately from all the personal data that you have provided us.
The legal basis for the temporary storage of the data and the log files  is Art. 6 Para. 1 f) of the GDPR.

3. Data processing upon first contact
You can contact us using the contact form provided on our website  or via the email address that you will find in our imprint.
If you use  one of these channels to contact Senze-Instruments Benelux, we automatically save the  personal data that you have given us. Such personal details given to Senze-Instruments on a voluntary basis are saved to process your inquiry and/or  for the purpose of getting in touch with you.

What we collect
Our contact forms ask for the following personal information in addition to published data available about the organisation that you work for:
• Full name.
• Department.
• Email address.
• Contact phone number.
Generic information
• The name of the company you work for.
• The location of that company.
• The specific product or service you require more information about.
Senze-Instruments allocates the inquiries and related personal data to  the technically responsible office within Senze-Instrument for processing and  use.
The legal basis for the processing of the data for contract  initiation or execution is Art. 6 Para. 1 b) of the GDPR and in all  other cases Art. 6 Para. 1 f) of the GDPR.

4. Subscription to our newsletter
Users are given the option of subscribing to the Senze-Instruments Benelux newsletter (e.g., "News") on the Senze-Instruments Benelux website. The personal data  that are recorded when subscribing to the Senze-Instruments Benelux newsletter can be seen  on the input screen.
Senze-Instruments Benelux uses the newsletter to provide information on a regular  basis to customers and business partners about innovations of our  services and production, current press releases, information about our  brand or the current contents of our website. The newsletter can  fundamentally only be received by the person affected if (1) the person  affected has a valid email address and (2) the person affected registers  for receipt of the newsletter. For legal reasons, a confirmation email  is initially sent to the registered email address of the affected person  in a double opt-in procedure for receipt of the newsletter. This  confirmation email serves as a check to ensure that the owner of the  email address as the person affected has authorized the receipt of the  newsletter. The legal basis for sending the newsletter is Art. 6 Para. 1  a) of the GDPR.
Upon registration for the newsletter, we store the IP address of the  internet service provider (ISP) of the computer system of the person  affected at the time of registration as well as the date and time of  registration. The recording of this data is required to be able to  identify the (possible) misuse of the email address of the person  affected at a later point in time and therefore also to guarantee legal  protection of Senze-Instruments Benelux.  
The personal data collected as part of the registration process for  the newsletter are used exclusively for the following purposes:
  • Dispatch of the newsletter
  • Advice and advertising
  • Needs-related structure of the newsletter
  • Compilation of the topics in the newsletter in line with the interests of subscribers
In addition, subscribers to the newsletter could be informed by email  insofar as this is necessary for the operation of the newsletter  services or a registration with regard to this, such as for changes to  the offer or a modification to the technical circumstances.
Consent to the storage of personal data that the person affected has  given us for the subscription to the newsletter can be revoked at any  time. There is a corresponding link in every newsletter for the  revocation of consent. In addition, it is also possible to deregister at  any time directly with Senze-Instruments Benelux by sending a notification to the contact  details given under number 1.

Therefore, we cannot be responsible for the protection and privacy of any information which you provide whilst visiting such sites and such sites are not governed by this privacy statement. You should exercise caution and look at the privacy statement applicable to the website in question.   

6. Cookies
This website uses cookies. Cookies are text files that are placed  on a computer system and stored in that system. By using cookies, Senze-Instruments Benelux is able to provide you with user-friendly services that would  not be possible if the cookies had not been placed. Cookies enable us to  recognize the users of our website. For example, the user of a website  that uses cookies does not have to enter his/her login data every time  he/she visits the website, because these are taken from the website and  the cookie placed by the website on the computer system.
The data are  collected and stored for optimization and marketing purposes. These data  are used to create user profiles under a pseudonym. Cookies can be used  for this. The cookies enable recognition of the internet browser. The  data collected are not used to identify the  visitor of this website personally and are not combined with personal  data of the carrier of the pseudonym without the individually granted  consent of the person affected. No profiling is carried out. The  collection and storage of data can be objected to at any time with  future effect.
You can prevent the placing of cookies by our website at any time by  means of a corresponding setting of your internet browser and  consequently prevent the setting of cookies on a permanent basis. In  addition, cookies that have already been placed can be deleted at any  time via an internet browser or another software program. This is  possible in all standard internet browsers. However, if you deactivate  the placing of cookies in your internet browser, not all the functions  of our website will be fully available to you in certain circumstances.  The legal basis for the processing of personal data using cookies is  Art. 6 Para. 1 f) of the GDPR.

7. Data transfer to third parties
Access to personal data is technically possible for service  providers and contracting parties that we employ for the operation of  our website. These external service providers are obliged to use your  personal data only for the purpose of providing the services that we  require or for other purposes in compliance with out instructions.
Senze-Instruments Benelux  is responsible for ensuring that you are informed  about your rights as a person affected within the context of the valid  data protection laws. You can address any inquiries or complaints  regarding your personal data to Senze-Instruments Benelux.
Apart from the aforementioned data transfer, we will not sell, distribute or lease your personal information outside of Senze-Instruments.
Your contact information will not be passed on to a third party without your permission unless we are required by law to do so.
8. Storage period of data
The criterion for the duration of the storage of personal data is  the relevant statutory storage period. Once this deadline has expired,  we routinely delete all the corresponding data insofar as they are no  longer required to fulfill or initiate a contract.
If the reason for storage no longer applies or if the storage  deadline set by the European regulator or another relevant legislator  should expire, the personal data are routinely blocked or deleted in  accordance with statutory provisions.

9. Your rights
As a person affected, you are entitled to the rights as set out  in Articles 15-21 of the GDPR vis-à-vis Senze-Instruments Benelux  if the prerequisites set  out therein have been fulfilled. These are the rights to information  (Art. 15 of the GDPR), correction (Art. 16 of the GDPR), deletion (Art.  17 of the GDPR), restriction in processing (Art. 18 of the GDPR), data  transfer (Art. 20 of the GDPR) and the right to object (Art. 21 and 22  of the GDPR). In addition, you have a right to complain to the  supervisory authority pursuant to Art. 77 of the GDPR.
