Transparency Statement according to Article 13, 14 & 21 GDPR:
We are very delighted that you have shown interest in our enterprise. Data protection is of a particularly high priority for the management of the HyImpulse Technologies GmbH. The use of the Internet pages of the HyImpulse Technologies GmbH is possible without any indication of personal data; however, if a data subject wants to use special enterprise services via our website, processing of personal data could become necessary. If the processing of personal data is necessary and there is no statutory basis for such processing, we generally obtain consent from the data subject.
The processing of personal data, such as the name, address, e-mail address, or telephone number of a data subject shall always be in line with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), and in accordance with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to the HyImpulse Technologies GmbH. By means of this data protection declaration, our enterprise would like to inform the general public of the nature, scope, and purpose of the personal data we collect, use and process. Furthermore, data subjects are informed, by means of this data protection declaration, of the rights to which they are entitled.
As the controller, the HyImpulse Technologies GmbH has implemented numerous technical and organizational measures to ensure the most complete protection of personal data processed through this website. However, Internet-based data transmissions may in principle have security gaps, so absolute protection may not be guaranteed. For this reason, every data subject is free to transfer personal data to us via alternative means, e.g. by telephone.
The data protection declaration of the HyImpulse Technologies GmbH is based on the terms used by the European legislator for the adoption of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Our data protection declaration should be legible and understandable for the general public, as well as our customers and business partners. To ensure this, we would like to first explain the terminology used. In this data protection declaration, we use, inter alia, the following terms:
1.1 Personal data
Personal data means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (“data subject”). An identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.
1.2 Data subject
Data subject is any identified or identifiable natural person, whose personal data is processed by the controller responsible for the processing.
Processing is any operation or set of operations which is performed on personal data or on sets of personal data, whether or not by automated means, such as collection, recording, organisation, structuring, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.
1.4 Restriction of processing
Restriction of processing is the marking of stored personal data with the aim of limiting their processing in the future.
Profiling means any form of automated processing of personal data consisting of the use of personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyse or predict aspects concerning that natural person’s performance at work, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behaviour, location or movements.
Pseudonymisation is the processing of personal data in such a manner that the personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without the use of additional information, provided that such additional information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organisational measures to ensure that the personal data are not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.
1.7 Controller or controller responsible for the processing
Controller or controller responsible for the processing is the natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which, alone or jointly with others, determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data; where the purposes and means of such processing are determined by Union or Member State law, the controller or the specific criteria for its nomination may be provided for by Union or Member State law.
Processor is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which processes personal data on behalf of the controller.
Recipient is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or another body, to which the personal data are disclosed, whether a third party or not. However, public authorities which may receive personal data in the framework of a particular inquiry in accordance with Union or Member State law shall not be regarded as recipients; the processing of those data by those public authorities shall be in compliance with the applicable data protection rules according to the purposes of the processing.
1.10 Third party
Third party is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or body other than the data subject, controller, processor and persons who, under the direct authority of the controller or processor, are authorised to process personal data.
Consent of the data subject is any freely given, specific, informed and unambiguous indication of the data subject’s wishes by which he or she, by a statement or by a clear affirmative action, signifies agreement to the processing of personal data relating to him or her.

Our website uses so-called cookies. Cookies do no harm to visitors' computers and contain no viruses. Cookies serve to make our offer more user-friendly, more effective and safer. Cookies are small text files that are placed on visitors' computers and saved by the browser.
We only use so-called "session cookies". They are automatically deleted after the website visit. Visitors can set their browser so that they are informed about the setting of cookies and only allow cookies in individual cases, exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or in general, and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when the browser is closed. If cookies are deactivated, the functionality of our website may be restricted.
5. Collection of general data and information
The website of the HyImpulse Technologies GmbH collects a series of general data and information when a data subject or automated system calls up the website. This general data and information are stored in the server log files. Collected may be (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 referrers), (4) the sub-websites, (5) the date and time of access to the Internet site, (6) an Internet protocol address (IP address), (7) the Internet service provider of the accessing system, and (8) any other similar data and information that may be used in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.
When using these general data and information, the HyImpulse Technologies GmbH does not draw any conclusions about the data subject. Rather, this information is needed to (1) deliver the content of our website correctly, (2) optimize the content of our website as well as its advertisement, (3) ensure the long-term viability of our information technology systems and website technology, and (4) provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for criminal prosecution in case of a cyber-attack. Therefore, the HyImpulse Technologies GmbH analyzes anonymously collected data and information statistically, with the aim of increasing the data protection and data security of our enterprise, and to ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data we process. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by a data subject.
6. Contact possibility via the website
The website of the HyImpulse Technologies GmbH contains information that enables a quick electronic contact to our enterprise, as well as direct communication with us, which also includes a general address of the so-called electronic mail (e-mail address). If a data subject contacts the controller by e-mail or via a contact form, the personal data transmitted by the data subject are automatically stored. Such personal data transmitted on a voluntary basis by a data subject to the data controller are stored for the purpose of processing or contacting the data subject. There is no transfer of this personal data to third parties.
7. Data protection for applications and the application procedures
The data controller shall collect and process the personal data of applicants for the purpose of the processing of the application procedure. The processing may also be carried out electronically. This is the case, in particular, if an applicant submits corresponding application documents by e-mail or by means of a web form on the website to the controller. If the data controller concludes an employment contract with an applicant, the submitted data will be stored for the purpose of processing the employment relationship in compliance with legal requirements. If no employment contract is concluded with the applicant by the controller, the application documents shall be automatically erased four months after notification of the refusal decision, provided that no other legitimate interests of the controller are opposed to the erasure. Other legitimate interest in this relation is, e.g. a burden of proof in a procedure under the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG).
8. Integration of services and contents of third parties
Within our online offer, we use content or service offers from third-party providers on the basis of our legitimate interests in order to integrate their content and services, such as videos or fonts (hereinafter uniformly referred to as "content"). This always requires that the third-party providers of this content, perceive the IP address of visitors, because without the IP address they could not send the content to their browser. The IP address is required for the display of this content. We strive to use only such content whose respective providers use the IP address only for the delivery of the content. If the visitor is logged in with an account with the service provider (e.g. Google), the usage behavior can be assigned to his account.
Overview of third-party providers and their content, along with links to their privacy statements, which contain further information on the processing of data and opt-out options:
8.1 Appearance on YouTube
We have embedded YouTube videos in our online offer, which are stored on http://www.YouTube.com and can be played directly from our website. In principle, when you call up a page with embedded videos, your IP address is already sent to YouTube/Google and cookies are installed on your computer. However, we have embedded our videos in "extended data protection mode", i.e. no data about you as a user will be transmitted to YouTube/Google if you do not play the videos. Only when you click on the video to play, the following data will be transferred:
- IP address
- Date and time of the request
- Time zone difference from Greenwich Mean Time (GMT)
- Content of the request (specific page)
- Access status/HTTP status code
- Amount of data transferred in each case
- Website from which the request comes
- Operating system and its interface
- Language and version of the browser software.
- Hardware used (PC, smartphone, etc.)
- Location (if Google Maps is enabled)
We have no influence on this data transmission.
By visiting our website and playing the videos, YouTube/Google receives the information that you have accessed the corresponding subpage of our website. If you are logged in to Google, this data is directly assigned to your account. If you do not want the assignment with your profile at YouTube, you must log out before activating the button. In addition, YouTube/Google also stores data if you do not have a Google user account, these are in particular: IP address, search queries, browser and operating system version.
YouTube/Google stores the aforementioned data as usage profiles and uses them for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or demand-oriented design of its website. Such an evaluation is carried out in particular (even for users who are not logged in or users without a corresponding account) to provide needs-based advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have a right to object to the creation of these user profiles, whereby you must contact YouTube to exercise this right.
Information of the third party provider: YouTube LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA: https://policies.google.com/technologies/product-privacy?hl=de and https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy. Opt-Out options are available on https://www.google.com/settings/ads/.
The information collected by the cookies of this provider is usually sent to a server in the USA and stored there. In the event that the data is transferred to the USA, the data transfer is based on the existence of standard contractual clauses.
HyImpulse Technologies GmbH does not collect or process personal data via YouTube. The transfer of personal data by Google, in particular to third countries, is outside the scope of responsibility of HyImpulse Technologies GmbH. It cannot be held liable in this regard.
8.2 Appearance on Facebook
Plugins of the social network Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland are integrated on our pages.
If you do not want Facebook to associate your visit to our website with your Facebook user account, we ask you to log out of your Facebook user account when you visit our website. We would also like to point out that you use the Facebook page and its functions on your own responsibility. This applies in particular to the interactive functions (for example, commenting, sharing, rating). Facebook processes personal data about your account, your IP address as well as about the end devices you use; cookies are used for data collection. These are small files that are stored on your end devices. Facebook describes in general terms what information it receives and how it is used in its data usage guidelines. There you will also find information about contact options for Facebook, the objection options, and the settings options for advertisements.
The Data Use Policy is available at the following link: http://de-de.facebook.com/about/privacy
Facebook's full data policies can be found here: https://de-de.facebook.com/full_data_use_policy
The information may be used by Facebook to provide us, as operators of the Facebook pages, with statistical information such as gender and age distribution about the use of the Facebook page. In addition, Facebook may display further information or advertisements to you according to your preferences. Facebook provides more detailed information on this at the following link: http://de-de.facebook.com/help/pages/insights.
The data collected about you in this context is processed by Facebook Ltd. and may be transferred to countries outside the European Union.
If you visit one of our presences in the social media (e.g. Facebook), you trigger a processing of your personal data during such a visit. In this case, we are jointly responsible with the operator of the respective social network for the data processing operations within the meaning of Art. 26 GDPR, provided that we actually make a joint decision with the operator of the social network about the data processing and we also have an influence on the data processing. As far as possible, we have concluded joint responsibility agreements with the operators of the social networks pursuant to Art. Art. 26 GDPR, so in particular the Page Controller Addendums of Facebook Ireland Ltd. Your rights (right to information pursuant to Art. 15 GDPR, right to rectification pursuant to Art. 16 GDPR, right to erasure pursuant to Art. 17 GDPR, right to restriction of processing pursuant to Art. 18 GDPR, right to data portability pursuant to Art. 20 GDPR and right to lodge a complaint pursuant to Art. 77 GDPR) can in principle be asserted both against us and against the operator of the respective social network (e.g. Facebook).
We ask you to note that despite the joint responsibility pursuant to Art. 26 GDPR with the operators of social networks, we have no full influence on the data processing of the individual social networks. The corporate policy of the respective provider has a significant influence on our options. In the event of the assertion of data subject rights, we could only forward these requests to the operator of the social network.
In what way Facebook uses data from visits to Facebook pages for its own purposes, to what extent activities on the Facebook page are assigned to individual users, how long Facebook stores this data and whether data from a visit to the Facebook page is passed on to third parties, is not conclusively and clearly stated by Facebook and is not known to us.
When you access a Facebook page, the IP address assigned to your terminal device is transmitted to Facebook. According to Facebook, this IP address is anonymized (for "German" IP addresses) and deleted after 90 days. Facebook also stores information about the end devices of its users (for example, as part of the "login notification" function); if necessary, Facebook is thus able to assign IP addresses to individual users.
If you are currently logged in to Facebook as a user, a cookie with your Facebook ID is located on your end device. This enables Facebook to track that you have visited this page and how you have used it. This also applies to all other Facebook pages. Via Facebook buttons embedded in websites, it is possible for Facebook to record your visits to these website pages and assign them to your Facebook profile. Based on this data, content or advertising can be offered tailored to you.
If you want to avoid this, you should log out of Facebook or deactivate the "stay logged in" function, delete the cookies present on your device and exit and restart your browser. In this way, Facebook information through which you can be directly identified will be deleted. This will allow you to use our Facebook page without revealing your Facebook identifier. When you access interactive features of the page (Like, Comment, Share, Message, etc.), a Facebook login screen will appear. After any login, you will again be recognizable to Facebook as a specific user. Alternatively, you can use a different browser than usual to visit our Facebook page.
For information on how to manage or delete information about you, please visit the following Facebook support pages: https://de-de.facebook.com/about/privacy#
We, as the provider of the information service, do not collect or process any data from your use of our service beyond this. You can find this data privacy statement in its current version under the item "Data Policy" on our Facebook page.
8.3 Appearance on LinkedIn
Purpose: presentation of the company as well as interaction with our users
The purpose of the data processing of our LinkedIn presence is the information about our company, our products and services, combined with the possibility for users to interact with us in a targeted manner. The legal basis for the data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. Our legitimate interest is in particular our business interest in sharing information with our users and being able to communicate with them.
For the operation of the LinkedIn presence, we are supported by service companies separately committed to confidentiality and data protection. Data is only passed on to authorities in the event of overriding legal requirements.
If we publish images of individuals, this is done via consent (legal basis: Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR), on the basis of a contractual agreement (legal basis: Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR) and in exceptional cases on the basis of legitimate interests (legal basis: Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. GDPR in conjunction with § 23 para. 1 no. 3 Art Copyright Act).
Use of Insight data
We place advertisements on LinkedIn and use insight data provided by LinkedIn to evaluate the behavior of our target group or users in the context of interaction with our site. The targeting of advertising is a legitimate interest of our company. LinkedIn users are informed of this; the responsibility for data collection lies primarily with LinkedIn. A joint responsibility agreement has been concluded with LinkedIn. Countervailing interests of users worthy of protection (display of individual target group-optimized advertising) are not predominant. The legal basis for us is Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR in connection with joint responsibility. You can find the shared responsibility agreement here: https://legal.linkedin.com/pages-joint-controller-addendum. If you assert your data subject rights against us, we will forward them to LinkedIn in accordance with the agreement.
Third country transfer
It is not excluded that data from users is processed on systems outside the European Union. LinkedIn has undertaken to comply with the data protection standards of the EU. A data transfer to systems outside the EU only takes place if the requirements of Art. 44 et seq. GDPR are complied with. You can find out more at: https://www.linkedin.com/help/linkedin/answer/62533?trk=microsites-frontend_legal_privacy-policy&lang=de
Your right to information, correction, deletion, objection and data portability
You can exercise your right to information, correction and deletion of data at any time. Simply contact us in the ways described above. If you wish data to be deleted but we are still legally obliged to retain it, access to your data will be restricted (blocked). The same applies in the event of an objection.

An employee of HyImpulse Technologies GmbH shall promptly ensure that the erasure request is complied with immediately.
Where the controller has made personal data public and is obliged pursuant to Article 17(1) to erase the personal data, the controller, taking account of available technology and the cost of implementation, shall take reasonable steps, including technical measures, to inform other controllers processing the personal data that the data subject has requested erasure by such controllers of any links to, or copy or replication of, those personal data, as far as processing is not required. An employees of the HyImpulse Technologies GmbH will arrange the necessary measures in individual cases.

The employee of the HyImpulse Technologies GmbH will arrange the restriction of the processing.
9.6 Right to data portability
Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator, to receive the personal data concerning him or her, which was provided to a controller, in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format. He or she shall have the right to transmit those data to another controller without hindrance from the controller to which the personal data have been provided, as long as the processing is based on consent pursuant to point (a) of Article 6(1) of the GDPR or point (a) of Article 9(2) of the GDPR, or on a contract pursuant to point (b) of Article 6(1) of the GDPR, and the processing is carried out by automated means, as long as the processing is not necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller.

In order to assert the right to data portability, the data subject may at any time contact any employee of the HyImpulse Technologies GmbH.
9.7 Right to object
Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator to object, on grounds relating to his or her particular situation, at any time, to processing of personal data concerning him or her, which is based on point (e) or (f) of Article 6(1) of the GDPR. This also applies to profiling based on these provisions.
The HyImpulse Technologies GmbH shall no longer process the personal data in the event of the objection, unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject, or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.
If the HyImpulse Technologies GmbH processes personal data for direct marketing purposes, the data subject shall have the right to object at any time to processing of personal data concerning him or her for such marketing. This applies to profiling to the extent that it is related to such direct marketing. If the data subject objects to the HyImpulse Technologies GmbH to the processing for direct marketing purposes, the HyImpulse Technologies GmbH will no longer process the personal data for these purposes.
In addition, the data subject has the right, on grounds relating to his or her particular situation, to object to processing of personal data concerning him or her by the HyImpulse Technologies GmbH for scientific or historical research purposes, or for statistical purposes pursuant to Article 89(1) of the GDPR, unless the processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out for reasons of public interest.

9.8 Automated individual decision-making, including profiling
Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects concerning him or her, or similarly significantly affects him or her, as long as the decision (1) is not is necessary for entering into, or the performance of, a contract between the data subject and a data controller, or (2) is not authorised by Union or Member State law to which the controller is subject and which also lays down suitable measures to safeguard the data subject's rights and freedoms and legitimate interests, or (3) is not based on the data subject's explicit consent.
If the decision (1) is necessary for entering into, or the performance of, a contract between the data subject and a data controller, or (2) it is based on the data subject's explicit consent, the HyImpulse Technologies GmbH shall implement suitable measures to safeguard the data subject's rights and freedoms and legitimate interests, at least the right to obtain human intervention on the part of the controller, to express his or her point of view and contest the decision.
If the data subject wishes to exercise the rights concerning automated individual decision-making, he or she may, at any time, contact any employee of the HyImpulse Technologies GmbH.
9.9 Right to withdraw data protection consent
Each data subject shall have the right granted by the European legislator to withdraw his or her consent to processing of his or her personal data at any time.
If the data subject wishes to exercise the right to withdraw the consent, he or she may, at any time, contact any employee of the HyImpulse Technologies GmbH.
10. Legal basis for the processing
Art. 6(1) lit. a GDPR 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 the data subject is party, as is the case, for example, when processing operations are necessary for the supply of goods or to provide any other service, the processing is based on Article 6(1) lit. b GDPR. The same applies to such processing operations which are necessary for carrying out pre-contractual measures, for example in the case of inquiries concerning our products or services. Is our company subject to a legal obligation by which processing of personal data is required, such as for the fulfillment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6(1) lit. c GDPR. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or of another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor were injured in our company and his name, age, health insurance data or other vital information would have to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. Then the processing would be based on Art. 6(1) lit. d GDPR. Finally, processing operations could be based on Article 6(1) lit. f GDPR. This legal basis is used for processing operations which are not covered by any of the abovementioned legal grounds, if processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by our company or by a third party, except where such interests are overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject which require protection of personal data. Such processing operations are particularly permissible because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. He considered that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a client of the controller (Recital 47 Sentence 2 GDPR).
11. The legitimate interests pursued by the controller or by a third party
Where the processing of personal data is based on Article 6(1) lit. f GDPR our legitimate interest is to carry out our business in favor of the well-being of all our employees and the shareholders.
12. Deletion and restriction of the processing of personal data
Personal data of data subjects are only stored for the period that is determined by the storage purpose or that is prescribed by overriding laws and regulations.
If a storage period prescribed by law or regulation expires or the underlying storage purpose no longer applies, the personal data will be deleted in accordance with legal regulations or their processing restricted.
Is the underlying purpose of processing according to GDPR Art. 6 (1) lit. b a pre-contractual measure, the personal data of the data subject will be deleted 12 months after the completion of the pre-contractual measure, unless a) a new basis has arisen from a contractual relationship or b) the data subject has not given consent for further storage and processing, or c) others reasons for deletion.
13. Provision of personal data as statutory or contractual requirement; Requirement necessary to enter into a contract; Obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data; possible consequences of failure to provide such data
We clarify that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or can also result from contractual provisions (e.g. information on the contractual partner). Sometimes it may be necessary to conclude a contract that the data subject provides us with personal data, which must subsequently be processed by us. The data subject is, for example, obliged to provide us with personal data when our company signs a contract with him or her. The non-provision of the personal data would have the consequence that the contract with the data subject could not be concluded. Before personal data is provided by the data subject, the data subject must contact any employee. The employee clarifies to the data subject whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or contract or is necessary for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and the consequences of non-provision of the personal data.
