We use hCaptcha (hereinafter "hCaptcha") on this website. The provider is Intuition Machines Inc 2211 Selig Dr, Los Angeles, CA 90026, United States (hereinafter "IMI").
The purpose of hCaptcha is to verify whether data entry on this website (e.g. in a contact form) is made by a human or by an automated program. For this purpose, hCaptcha analyzes the behavior of the website visitor based on various characteristics.
This analysis starts automatically as soon as the website visitor enters a website with activated hCaptcha. For the analysis, hCaptcha evaluates various information (e.g. IP address, time spent by the website visitor on the website or mouse movements made by the user). The data collected during the analysis is forwarded to IMI. If hCaptcha is used in "invisible mode", the analyses run completely in the background. Website visitors are not notified that an analysis is taking place.
The storage and analysis of the data is based on Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO. The website operator has a legitimate interest in protecting its web offers from abusive automated spying and from SPAM.

4. Transfer of your data to a third country or international organization

Furthermore, we have no information about the deletion of the processed data. YouTube may store the processed data as user profiles and uses it for the purposes of advertising, market-research and personalized design of its websites. Such evaluation is performed particularly for the purposes of personalized advertising and in order to inform other users of the social media platform about your activity on our website. You have the right to object to the creation of this personal user profile; however, you have to contact YouTube directly.

6.1.5 Address of the provider and URL with its privacy statement
Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; further information about the processing of data: https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy. Google has submitted to the use of standard contractual clauses of the European Commission. Please note that the USA are no secure third country within the meaning of EU data protection law. The European Commission could not establish that the USA ensure an adequate level of protection for personal data comparable with those of EU data protection law. Hence, the European Commission could not confirm a suitable level of data protection based on an adequacy decision according to Article 45 GDPR. US entities are obligated to disclose personal data to US security agencies without a possibility to take legal action against it by the affected person. Therefore, it cannot be excluded that US authorities (for example intelligence services) process, store and evaluate the data stored on US servers for purposes of surveillance. We have no influence on the processing of such data. The standard contractual clauses of the European Commission used by Google may therefore be inappropriate safeguards in the sense of point (a) of Article 46(2) GDPR. By consenting to the processing of data by Google Ads, you explicitly accept the data transfer as specified above, having been informed about the potential risks of such transfer in the absence of an adequacy decision.
6.2.1 Purposes of the data processing
We, RENK Group AG and RENK Test System GmbH (RTS), each maintain a profile on the social network LinkedIn in order to communicate with the registered users and to provide information about our products, services and news.

If you have given the person responsible for the social network consent to the processing of your personal data, the legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) DS-GVO. We have no influence on the processing of personal data by the respective social media provider.
6.2.3 Description and scope of the data processing
If our site offers a chat function, RENK Group AG or RTS will use your data when using the chat function in order to answer your inquiry. The customer service information collected in this way is used to contact you in order to provide you with the requested information.
RENK Group AG as well as RTS cannot trace which user data LinkedIn collects. We also do not have full access to the collected data or your profile data. We can only see the public information of your profile. You decide which this is specifically in your LinkedIn settings.
RENK and RTS receives personal data via LinkedIn if you actively communicate this to us via a personal message on LinkedIn. We use your data (e.g. first name, last name, company) to respond to your request in our customer support. Your data will be stored in our CRM system for this purpose. RENK and RTS also receives personal data via LinkedIn if you use a form with pre-filled fields with data from your profile to submit the data to us and actively send the data to us by clicking on a button.

8. Objection to or withdrawal of consent to the processing of your data
If you have given your consent to the processing of your data, you have the right according to Article 7(3) GDPR to withdraw this consent at any time.
