Privacy policy

1. Introduction

With the following information, we would like to give you as a “data subject” an overview of the processing of your personal data by us and your rights under the Data Protection Act. It is generally possible to use our website without entering personal data. However, if you wish to make use of special services of our company via our website, it may become necessary to process personal data. If it is necessary to process personal data and there is no legal basis for such processing, we will generally obtain your consent.

The processing of personal data, such as your name, address, or e-mail address, is always in accordance with the Basic Data Protection Regulation (DS-GVO) and in compliance with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to E-Lyte Innovations. By means of this privacy policy, we would like to inform you about the scope and purpose of the personal data that we collect, use, and process.

We have therefore implemented numerous technical and organizational measures for processing to ensure that the personal data processed via this website is protected as completely as possible. Nevertheless, Internet-based data transmissions can generally have security gaps, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, you are free to transmit personal data to us by alternative means, for example by telephone or post.

3. Definitions

The privacy statement is based on the terms used by the European legislator for directives and regulations when the basic data protection regulation (DS-GVO) was adopted. Our data protection declaration should be easy to read and understand both for the public and for our customers and business partners. To ensure this, we would like to explain the terms used in advance.

We use the following terms, among others, in this data protection declaration:

Personal data
Personal data is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. 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 one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.

Person concerned
Data subject is any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data are processed by the controller (our company).

Processing is any operation or set of operations, performed upon personal data, whether or not by automatic means, such as collection, recording, organisation, organisation, filing, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.

Restriction of processing
Restriction of processing is the marking of stored personal data with the aim of limiting their future processing.

Profiling is any automated processing of personal data consisting of the use of such personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyse or predict aspects relating to that natural person’s performance at work, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, conduct, location or change of location.

Pseudonymisation is the processing of personal data in such a way that the personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without the need to obtain additional information, provided that this additional information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organisational measures which ensure that the personal data cannot be traced to an identified or identifiable natural person

Processor is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which processes personal data on behalf of the controller.

The recipient is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body to whom personal data are disclosed, whether or not it is a third party. However, authorities which may receive personal data in the course of a specific investigation, in accordance with Union or national law, shall not be considered as recipients.

Third party means any natural or legal person, public authority, agency or body other than the data subject, the controller, the processor and the persons who, under the direct authority of the controller or the processor, are authorized to process the personal data.

Consent shall mean any freely given specific and informed expression of the data subject’s will in an informed and unequivocal manner, in the form of a declaration or other unequivocal affirmative act by which the data subject signifies his or her consent to the processing of personal data relating to him or her.

4. Legal basis of the data processing

Article 6 (1) lit. a DS-GVO serves as a legal basis for our company 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 a party, as is the case, for example, with processing operations necessary for the delivery of goods or the provision of another service or consideration, the processing is based on Art. 6 (1) 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 inquiries about our products or services.

If our company is subject to a legal obligation which makes it necessary to process personal data, for example to fulfil tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 Para. 1 letter c DS-GVO.

In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be necessary to protect the 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, health insurance details or other vital information had to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. The processing would then be based on Article 6 (1) (d) DS-GVO.

Finally, processing operations could be based on Article 6 (1) (f) DS-GVO. Processing operations which are not covered by any of the above legal bases are based on this legal basis if the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or of a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not prevail. We are permitted to carry out such processing operations in particular because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In this respect, he took the view that a legitimate interest could be assumed if you are a customer of our company (Recital 47 sentence 2 DS-GVO).


5. Technology

SSL/TLS Encryption

This site uses SSL or TLS encryption to ensure the security of data processing and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders, login data or contact requests that you send to us as the operator. You can recognise an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of your browser contains “https://” instead of “http://” and by the lock symbol in your browser line.

If the SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data that you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.


6. Your rights as a person concerned


6.1 Right to confirmation

You have the right to obtain confirmation from us as to whether personal data concerning you is being processed.

6.3 Right to correction Art. 16 DS-GVO

They have the right to request the rectification of incorrect personal data concerning them. The data subject shall also have the right to obtain the completion of incomplete personal data, having regard to the purposes of the processing.


6.4 Deletion Art. 17 DS-GVO

You have the right to demand that the personal data relating to you be deleted immediately if one of the reasons provided by law applies and if processing is not necessary.


6.5 Restriction of processing Art. 18 DS-GVO

You have the right to demand that we restrict processing if one of the legal requirements is met.


6.6 Data transferability Art. 20 DS-GVO

You have the right to receive the personal data concerning you which you have provided to us in a structured, common and machine-readable format. You also have the right to transfer this data to another controller without hindrance from us to whom the personal data has been made available, provided that the processing is based on the consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 letter a DS-GVO or Art. 9 para. 2 letter a DS-GVO or on a contract pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 letter b DS-GVO and the processing is carried out with the aid 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 that has been entrusted to us.

Furthermore, when exercising your right to data transfer pursuant to Art. 20 Paragraph 1 DS-GVO, you have the right to request that personal data be transferred directly from one responsible party to another, insofar as this is technically feasible and provided that this does not affect the rights and freedoms of other persons.


6.7 Opposition Art. 21 DS-GVO

You have the right to object at any time, for reasons arising from your particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning you that is carried out pursuant to Article 6(1)(e) (processing in the public interest) or (f) (processing based on a balancing of interests) of the Block Exemption Regulation.

This also applies to profiling within the meaning of Art. 4 No. 4 DS-GVO based on these provisions.

If you lodge an objection, we will no longer process your personal data unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate reasons for processing that outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

In individual cases we process personal data for the purpose of direct marketing. You may at any time object 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 you object to our processing for the purposes of direct marketing, we will no longer process your personal data for these purposes.

In addition, you have the right to object, for reasons arising from your particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning you which is carried out by us for the purposes of scientific or historical research or for statistical purposes in accordance with Article 89 paragraph 1 of the DS-GVO, unless such processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest.

They are free to exercise their right of objection in connection with the use of information society services, notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC, by means of automated procedures involving technical specifications.


6.8 Revocation of a data protection consent

You have the right to revoke your consent to the processing of personal data at any time with effect for the future.


6.9 Complaint to a supervisory authority

You have the right to complain to a supervisory authority responsible for data protection about our processing of personal data.
