Welcome to our website. We are very pleased about your interest in our company. Data protection has a particularly high priority for IONTIS Elektrostatik GmbH. In principle, it is possible to use our Internet pages without any indication of personal data. However, if a person concerned wishes to make use of special services of our company via our Internet site, it may be necessary to process personal data. If it is necessary to process personal data and there is no legal basis for such processing, we generally obtain the consent of the person concerned.
Personal data that you provide us with when visiting this website will be processed in accordance with the provisions of the Basic Data Protection Regulation (DS-GVO), the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and other legal provisions that apply to electronic business transactions. By means of this data protection declaration, we would like to inform you about the type, scope and purpose of the personal data collected, used and processed by us as well as the rights to which you are entitled.
IONTIS Elektrostatik GmbH, as the person responsible for processing, has implemented numerous technical and organisational measures to ensure that the personal data processed via this website is protected as completely as possible. Nevertheless, Internet-based data transmissions can in principle have security gaps, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, every person concerned is free to transmit personal data to us by alternative means, such as by telephone.
In the following we provide information about the collection of personal data when using our website.
1. Definitions of terms
The data protection declaration of IONTIS Elektrostatik GmbH is based on the terms which were used by the European legislator for directives and regulations when the basic data protection regulation (DS-GVO) was issued.

2. the name and address of the controller
Responsible in the sense of the data protection basic regulation, other data protection laws and other regulations with data protection character is the:
IONTIS Elektrostatik GmbH
Phone: 07628 3594 064
The activities of IONTIS include the development, production and distribution of equipment for the generation, measurement and elimination of static electricity (ionisation systems). The data collection, processing and use is carried out for the above-mentioned purposes.
The website of IONTIS Elektrostatik GmbH uses so-called cookies. These are small text files which are stored on your PC by means of the browser. They do not cause any damage, but support the presentation of our website and help you to navigate through our website. Cookies collect data on your IP address, your browser, your operating system and your internet connection. This information is not linked to personal data and is not passed on to third parties. Some cookies remain stored on your terminal device until you delete them. If you do not wish this, you can deactivate cookies in the settings of your browser. If cookies are deactivated, the functionality of our website may be limited.
You can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time by means of a corresponding setting in the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Furthermore, cookies that have already been set can be deleted at any time via an Internet browser or other software programs.
4. collection of general data and information
The website of IONTIS Elektrostatik GmbH records a series of general data and information with every call to the website by a person concerned or an automated system.
For the presentation and delivery of the contents of our website, the collection of certain data is technically necessary. When you access our website, so-called server log files are recorded by us or our provider. The server log files are anonymous data that are recorded when you access our website. They do not allow any conclusions to be drawn about you personally, but for technical reasons they are indispensable for the delivery and presentation of our content. Furthermore, they serve our statistics and the continuous optimisation of our contents. The log files consist of information on the date and time of access, the file, the amount of data, the web browser and its version, the operating system used, the domain name of your Internet provider, the referrer URL, i.e. the page from which you accessed our website, and the corresponding IP address. The server log files do not allow us to draw any conclusions about you or your person. We use this data exclusively for the presentation and delivery of our content and for statistical purposes. In addition, log files are used to check if there is any suspicion of illegal use of our website and to avert danger in the event of attacks on our information technology systems. In addition, the IP addresses of the callers in the log files are automatically anonymised after 7 days with an ‘x’.
These anonymously collected data and information are therefore evaluated by IONTIS Elektrostatik GmbH on the one hand statistically and also 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 anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by a person concerned.
5. subscription to our newsletter
On the website of IONTIS Elektrostatik GmbH it will probably be possible in future to subscribe to a newsletter. Which personal data will be transmitted to the person responsible for processing when ordering the newsletter can be seen from the input mask used for this purpose.
IONTIS Elektrostatik GmbH would like to inform its clients and business partners at regular intervals by means of a newsletter about current topics and consulting offers. In principle, the newsletter can only be received by the person concerned if the person concerned has a valid e-mail address and registers to receive the newsletter. For legal reasons, a confirmation e-mail will be sent to the e-mail address registered for the newsletter for the first time using the double opt-in procedure. This confirmation mail is used to check whether the owner of the e-mail address has authorized the receipt of the newsletter as the person concerned.
When registering for the newsletter, we also save the IP address assigned by the Internet service provider (ISP) of the computer system used by the person concerned at the time of registration, as well as the date and time of registration. The collection of this data is necessary in order to be able to trace the (possible) misuse of a data subject’s e-mail address at a later date and therefore serves to provide legal protection for the data controller.
The personal data collected during registration for the newsletter is used exclusively for sending our newsletter. It will not be passed on to third parties. The subscription to our newsletter can be cancelled by the person concerned at any time. Consent to the storage of personal data that you have given us for the purpose of sending the newsletter can be revoked at any time. For the purpose of revoking this consent, there is a corresponding link in every newsletter. Furthermore, it is also possible at any time to unsubscribe from the newsletter mailing directly on the website of the data controller or to inform the data controller in another way.
6. newsletter tracking
The newsletters of IONTIS Elektrostatik GmbH contain so-called counting pixels. A tracking pixel is a miniature graphic which is embedded in such e-mails which are sent in HTML format to enable log file recording and log file analysis. This enables a statistical evaluation of the success or failure of online marketing campaigns. By means of the embedded counting pixel, IONTIS Elektrostatik GmbH can recognise whether and when an e-mail was opened by a person concerned and which links contained in the e-mail were called up by the person concerned.
Such personal data collected via the tracking pixels contained in the newsletters are stored and evaluated by the data controller in order to optimise the newsletter dispatch and to adapt the content of future newsletters even better to the interests of the data subject. This personal data is not passed on to third parties. Affected persons are entitled to revoke the separate declaration of consent submitted in this regard via the double opt-in procedure at any time. After a revocation, this personal data will be deleted. A cancellation of the receipt of the newsletter is automatically interpreted by IONTIS Elektrostatik GmbH as a revocation.
7. possibility of contact via the Internet site
Due to legal regulations, the website of IONTIS Elektrostatik GmbH contains information which enables rapid electronic contact to our company as well as direct communication with us, which also includes a general address for so-called electronic mail (e-mail address). If a person concerned contacts us by e-mail or via a contact form, the transmitted personal data is transmitted to us in encrypted form as an e-mail message and then automatically stored. Such voluntarily transmitted personal data is stored for the purpose of processing or contacting the person concerned. This personal data is not passed on to third parties.
8. routine deletion and blocking of personal data
We process and store personal data of the person concerned only for the period of time necessary to achieve the purpose of storage or if this has been provided for by the European Directive and Regulation Giver or another legislator in laws or regulations to which we are subject.
If the purpose of storage ceases to apply or if a storage period prescribed by the European Directive and Regulation Giver or any other competent legislator expires, the personal data will be blocked or deleted as a matter of routine and in accordance with the statutory provisions.
9. your rights as a data subject
You have the following rights in relation to the personal data concerning you:
• Right to information,
• Right of correction or deletion,
• Right to restrict processing,
• Right to object to the processing,
• Right to data portability.

• if the personal data are not collected from the data subject: All available information on the origin of the data; the existence of automated decision making, including profiling in accordance with Article 22(1) and (4) of the DPA and meaningful information on the logic involved and the scope and intended impact of such processing on the data subject.
The data subject shall also have the right to obtain information as to whether personal data have been transferred to a third country or to an international organisation. If this is the case, the data subject shall also have the right to obtain information on the appropriate safeguards in relation to the transfer. If a data subject wishes to exercise this right of access, he or she may at any time contact a member of the staff of the controller.
(b) Right of rectification
person concerned by the processing of personal data shall have the right to obtain the rectification without delay of inaccurate personal data relating to him. The data subject shall also have the right to obtain the completion of incomplete personal data, having regard to the purposes of the processing. If a data subject wishes to exercise this right of rectification, he or she may at any time contact an employee of the controller.
(c) Right of erasure (right to be forgotten)
Any person concerned by the processing of personal data shall have the right to obtain from the controller the immediate erasure of personal data relating to him/her, where one of the following reasons applies and insofar as the processing is not necessary
• The personal data has been collected or otherwise processed for purposes for which it is no longer necessary.
• The data subject withdraws the consent on which the processing was based pursuant to Article 6(1)(a) DPA or Article 9(2)(a) DPA and there is no other legal basis for the processing.
• The data subject lodges an objection to the processing pursuant to Article 21(1) of the Block Exemption Regulation and there are no overriding legitimate reasons for processing, or the data subject lodges an objection to the processing pursuant to Article 21(2) of the Block Exemption Regulation.
• The personal data were processed unlawfully.
• The deletion of personal data is necessary to comply with a legal obligation under Union law or the law of the Member States to which the controller is subject.
• The personal data were collected in relation to information society services offered in accordance with Article 8 (1) of the DS-GVO.
If one of the above-mentioned reasons applies and a data subject wishes to have personal data stored by IONTIS Elektrostatik GmbH deleted, they can contact an employee of the person responsible for processing at any time. The employee of IONTIS Elektrostatik GmbH will ensure that the request for deletion is complied with immediately.
If the personal data has been made public by IONTIS Elektrostatik GmbH and our company is responsible for the data in accordance with article 17 paragraph 1 DS-GVO, IONTIS Elektrostatik GmbH is obliged to delete the personal data, then IONTIS Elektrostatik GmbH, taking into account the available technology and the implementation costs, will take appropriate measures, also of a technical nature, to inform other persons responsible for data processing who process the published personal data, that the data subject has requested from these other persons responsible for data processing the deletion of all links to these personal data or of copies or replications of these personal data, insofar as the processing is not necessary. IONTIS Elektrostatik GmbH will take the necessary steps in individual cases.
(d) Right to limit processing
data subject shall have the right to obtain from the controller the right to limit processing if one of the following conditions is met:
• The accuracy of the personal data is contested by the data subject, for a period of time that allows the controller to verify the accuracy of the personal data.
• The processing is unlawful, the data subject refuses to have the personal data deleted and instead requests that the use of the personal data be restricted.
• The controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of the processing, but the data subject needs them in order to exercise or defend his rights.
• The data subject has lodged an objection to the processing pursuant to Art. 21 (1) DPA and it is not yet clear whether the legitimate reasons of the controller outweigh those of the data subject.
If one of the above-mentioned prerequisites is given and a person concerned wishes to demand the restriction of personal data from IONTIS Elektrostatik GmbH, he can contact an employee for this purpose at any time. The employee of IONTIS Elektrostatik GmbH will arrange for the restriction of the processing.
(e) Right to data transfer
person concerned by the processing of personal data shall have the right to obtain the personal data relating to him which he has supplied to a controller in a structured, standard and machine-readable format. He/she also has the right to have this data communicated to another controller, without interference from the controller to whom the personal data has been made available, provided that the processing is based on the consent pursuant to Article 6(1)(a) of the DPA or Article 9(2)(a) of the DPA or on a contract pursuant to Article 6(1)(b) of the DPA, and provided that the processing is carried out by means of automated procedures, unless the processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller.
Furthermore, when exercising their right to data transferability in accordance with Art. 20 Paragraph 1 of the DPA, the data subject has the right to obtain that personal data be transferred directly from one person responsible to another, insofar as this is technically feasible and provided that this does not affect the rights and freedoms of other persons. In order to assert the right to data transferability, the person concerned can contact an employee of IONTIS Elektrostatik GmbH at any time.
(f) Right of opposition
data subject shall have the right to object
at any time, on grounds relating to his or her particular situation, to the processing of personal data
concerning him or her carried out pursuant to Article 6(1)(e) or (f) of the DPA. This also applies to profiling based on these provisions.
IONTIS Elektrostatik GmbH no longer processes personal data in the event of an objection, unless we can prove compelling reasons for processing worthy of protection which outweigh the interests, rights and freedoms of the person concerned, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
If IONTIS Elektrostatik GmbH processes personal data in order to carry out direct advertising, the person concerned has the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data for the purpose of such advertising. This also applies to profiling, insofar as it is connected with such direct advertising. If the data subject objects to the processing for the purposes of direct advertising, IONTIS Elektrostatik GmbH will no longer process the personal data for these purposes.
In addition, the data subject has the right to object, on grounds relating to his or her particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning him or her for the purposes of scientific or historical research or for statistical purposes, in accordance with Article 89 (1) of the DPA, unless such processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest.
In order to exercise the right to object, the person concerned can directly contact any employee of IONTIS Elektrostatik GmbH. The person concerned is also free to exercise his right of objection in connection with the use of information society services by means of automated procedures in which technical specifications are used.
person affected by the processing of personal data has the right to revoke his or her consent to the processing of personal data at any time as granted by the European Directive and Regulation Giver.
If you wish to exercise your right to revoke your consent, you can contact one of our employees at any time.
10. data protection for applications and the application process
The controller collects and processes the personal data of applicants for the purpose of processing the application procedure. The processing may also be carried out by electronic means. This is particularly the case if an applicant submits relevant application documents to the data controller electronically (by e-mail). If the data controller concludes an employment contract with an applicant, the transmitted data is stored for the purpose of processing the employment relationship in accordance with the statutory provisions. If the controller does not conclude an employment contract with the applicant, the application documents are automatically deleted three months after notification of the rejection decision, unless deletion is contrary to any other legitimate interests of the controller. Other legitimate interests in this sense include, for example, a duty of proof in proceedings under the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG).
11. legal basis of the processing
Art. 6 I lit. a DS-GVO 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 party, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. b DS-GVO. The same applies to such processing operations which are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of enquiries about our services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation which makes the processing of personal data necessary, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c DS-GVO. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be necessary to protect vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor to our company were to be injured and his or her name, age, injuries or other vital information had to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. In this case the processing would be based on Art. 6 I lit. d DS-GVO. Finally, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I lit. f DS-GVO 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. This is particularly the case if the data subject is a customer of the data controller.
12. the period for which the personal data are stored
The criterion for the duration of storage of personal data is the respective legal retention period. After expiry of this period, the corresponding data is routinely deleted, provided that it is no longer required for the fulfilment of the contract or the initiation of a contract.
13. provision of personal data; necessary for the conclusion of the contract
We would like to inform you that the provision of personal data is partly required by law or can also result from contractual regulations (e.g. information on the contractual partner). Sometimes it may be necessary for a contract to be concluded that a data subject provides us with personal data, which must subsequently be processed by us. For example, the data subject is obliged to provide us with personal data if we conclude a contract with him/her. Failure to provide the personal data would mean that the contract with the data subject could not be concluded.
14. contents and services of third party providers
The offer of our website may also contain content, services and performances of other providers, for example maps from Google Maps or graphic representations of third parties. The use of these services regularly requires the transmission of your IP address, which enables the third-party provider to collect and store your user IP address. Should we become aware of such storage processes by third parties, we will inform you of this fact immediately.
15. SSL encryption
Our website generally uses SSL encryption, especially when transmitting confidential or personal content of our users. This enables encryption of all data traffic between your browser and the IONTIS web server. In this way your data is protected against manipulation and unauthorised access by third parties on the transmission path. Please make sure that SSL encryption is activated for corresponding activities from your side. The use of encryption is easy to recognise: The display in your browser line changes from “http://” to “https://”. Data encrypted via SSL cannot be read by third parties. Please transmit your confidential information only if SSL encryption is activated and contact us if in doubt.
16. objection of advertising e-mails
Within the scope of the legal imprint obligation we are obliged to publish our contact data. These can be used by third parties to send unwanted advertising and information. We hereby object to any sending of advertising material of any kind not expressly authorized by us and expressly reserve the right to take legal action against the unwanted and unsolicited sending of advertising material. This applies in particular to so-called spam e-mails, spam letters and spam faxes. We would like to point out that the unauthorised transmission of advertising material can affect competition law, civil law and criminal law. Spam e-mails and spam faxes in particular can lead to high claims for damages if they disrupt business operations by overcrowding mailboxes or fax machines.
