4.1 Use of cookies

We use the technology known as “cooies” during your use of our website and for web analysis purposes. These are small files that are stored on your PC when you call up one of our Internet pages. Two different types of cookies are used: so-called session cookies (related to a session) and persistent cookies (permanent).

The general session cookies do not contain any personal data and expire at the end of the session. They serve the purpose of connection control and navigation and enable you to use our internet offer comfortably.

The persistent cookies used for the web analysis are stored for statistical purposes and evaluated exclusively by us, GINO-AKA SAS, in the context of the optimization of the online offers in the web analysis.

The processing of the data serves to deliver the contents of our website, to guarantee the functionality of our information technology systems and to optimize our website. The data of the log files are stored separately from other personal data of the users.

Persistent cookies are read when you visit the respective GINO-AKA SAS website again. The cookies stored on your computer by GINO-AKA SAS only contain an identification number and no personal data. The cookies are not used to personally identify visitors to our website.

You can set your web browser so that the storage of cookies is not permitted or so that cookies are deleted after the browser session has ended. You can find more information about these functions in the documentation or help file of your browser. Please note that if you exclude the use of cookies, you will only be able to use some websites or parts of them with restrictions or not at all.

The following data is evaluated for statistical purposes and to improve our offer and then deleted:

  • IP address
  • Date and time of access
  • Interrogated file
  • Internet address of the referring website
  • Browser type and version
  • Operating system
  • Quantity of data sent

4.2 Integration of Google Analytics

On our website we use Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses cookies which are stored on your computer and which enable an analysis of your use of our website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of our website, such as

  • IP address
  • Date and time of the request
  • Website from which the request comes
  • Browser
  • Operating system

are usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. On our behalf, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on the website activities and to provide further services to the website operator in connection with the use of the website and the Internet.

We have extended Google Analytics with the code “anonymizeIP”. This means that the IP address of users is shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other states that are party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. In exceptional cases, the full IP address is transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. The code extension “anonymizeIP” removes the last 8 bits of the user’s IP address. By using this code only a rough localization of the users is possible. The IP address transmitted by the user’s browser is not merged with other data from Google.

You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser, however please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. You can also prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) to Google and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link:

Data protection overview:  

4.3 References and links

On our Internet presence we provide links to other websites which are provided and maintained by third parties. At the time the link was created, we satisfied ourselves that the linked pages were free of illegal content. The contents offered on these linked websites do not originate from us. The offers of third parties also neither reflect our opinion nor do we adopt their contents as our own. This applies in particular in the event that the user of such a link to our website encounters content from third-party providers that he finds offensive or inappropriate. We therefore also accept no liability whatsoever for the content of third-party websites that are linked to our website or to which reference is made in any other way. In particular, we assume no responsibility for the content, accuracy, legality or form of such third-party websites. We ask the users of our pages to notify us if they encounter illegal or offensive content on any third-party website linked to our website.

4.4 Use and application of YouTube

The data controller has integrated YouTube components into this website. YouTube is an Internet video portal that allows video publishers to post video clips for free and other users to view, rate and comment on them, also free of charge. YouTube allows the publication of all types of videos, which is why complete film and television programs, but also music videos, trailers or videos created by users themselves can be accessed via the Internet portal.

YouTube is operated by YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. YouTube, LLC is a subsidiary of Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

Each time the data subject accesses one of the individual pages of this Internet site operated by the data controller and on which a YouTube component (YouTube video) has been integrated, the Internet browser on the data subject’s information technology system is automatically prompted by the relevant YouTube component to download a representation of the relevant YouTube component from YouTube. Further information on YouTube can be found at This technical process allows YouTube and Google to know which specific page of our website is visited by the data subject.

If the person concerned is logged in at the same time on YouTube, YouTube recognizes which specific subpage of our website the person concerned is visiting by calling up a subpage containing a YouTube video. This information is collected by YouTube and Google and assigned to the respective YouTube account of the person concerned.

YouTube and Google will receive information through the YouTube component that the data subject has visited our website whenever the data subject is logged on to YouTube at the same time that he or she visits our website, whether or not the data subject clicks on a YouTube video. If the data subject does not want this information to be sent to YouTube and Google, he or she can prevent it from being sent by logging out of his or her YouTube account before visiting our website.

The privacy policy published by YouTube, which can be found at, provides information about the collection, processing and use of personal data by YouTube and Google.

4.5 Integration of Google Maps

By visiting the website, Google receives the information that you have called up the corresponding subpage of our website. In addition, the data mentioned in this privacy policy will be transmitted. This happens regardless of whether Google provides a user account through which you are logged in or whether no user account exists. If you are logged in at Google, your data will be assigned directly to your account. If you do not wish to be assigned to your profile on Google, you must log out before activating the button. Google stores your data as user 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) to provide needs-based advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have a right of objection to the creation of these user profiles, whereby you must contact Google to exercise this right.

If your personal data is processed by us, you are “data subject” in the sense of the Basic Data Protection Regulation of the European Union (EU-GDPR) and you have the following rights towards us as the person responsible for the processing of your data. In accordance with our obligations under the EU-GDPR, we inform you below about your rights, also with regard to such uses and processing of your data which we do not carry out ourselves and which are not carried out by third parties, e.g. profiling (see 8.9).

In this context, you may request to be informed of the appropriate guarantees in accordance with Art. 46 GDPR in connection with the transfer.

8.2 Right of rectification

Where the processing of personal data relating to you has been restricted, such data may be processed, with the exception of storage, only with your consent or for the purpose of pursuing, exercising or defending legal claims or protecting the rights of another natural or legal person or on grounds of an important public interest of the Union or of a Member State.

If the restriction on processing has been restricted in accordance with the above conditions, you will be notified by us as the data controller before the restriction is lifted.

8.4 Right of cancellation

8.4.1 You may require us, as the data controller, to delete without delay the personal data concerning you, in which case we shall be obliged to delete such data without delay if one or more of the following reasons apply or are applicable

  1. the personal data concerning you are no longer necessary for the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed;

  3. You object to the processing of your personal data pursuant to Art. 21 (1) EU-GDPR and there are no overriding legitimate reasons for the processing or you object to the processing pursuant to Art. 21 (2) EU-GDPR;

  4. for archiving, scientific or historical research purposes in the public interest or for statistical purposes pursuant to Art. 89 (1) EU-GDPR, insofar as the law referred to in No. 9 is likely to render impossible or seriously prejudice the attainment of the objectives of such processing, or
  5. to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

8.5 Right of information

If you have asserted the right to rectification, erasure or limitation of processing against us as the controller of your personal data, we are obliged to notify all recipients to whom the personal data concerning you have been disclosed of this rectification, erasure or limitation of processing, unless this proves impossible or involves a disproportionate effort.

As the person responsible for processing your personal data, we have the right to be informed about these recipients.

8.6 Right of technical transferability of your personal data

Insofar as you have a right of information towards us in accordance with the above, you have the right to receive the personal data concerning you which you have provided us with or which we have stored about you in a structured, common and machine-readable format. You also have the right to have this data communicated to another data controller, without hindrance from us, other than the controller to whom your personal data was originally supplied, provided that

  1. the processing is based on a consent pursuant to Art. 6(1)(a) EU-GDPR or Art. 9(2)(a) EU-GDPR or on a Contract pursuant to Art. 6(1)(b) EU-GDPR and
  2. the processing is carried out by means of automated procedures.

In exercising this right, you also have the right to obtain that the personal data concerning you be transferred directly from one person in charge to another person in so far as this is technically feasible. The freedoms and rights of third parties must not be affected by this.

The right to data transferability shall not apply to processing of personal data which 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.

8.7 Right of objection

You have the right to object at any time, on grounds relating to your specific situation, to the processing of personal data concerning you under Article 6(1)(e) or (f) of the EU-DSA, including any profiling based on these provisions.

We as the person responsible for the processing of your personal data collected by us and/or stored by us do not process the personal data concerning you after exercising your right to object, unless we can prove compelling reasons for processing worthy of protection which outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing of your personal data serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

If the personal data concerning you are processed for the purpose of direct marketing, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning you for the purpose of such marketing, including any profiling, insofar as it relates to such direct marketing.

If you object to processing for direct marketing purposes, the personal data concerning you will no longer be processed for these purposes.

You may exercise your right of objection in connection with the use of information society services, without prejudice to Directive 2002/58/EC, by means of automated procedures involving technical specifications.

8.8 Right to revoke the declaration of consent under data protection law

You have the right to revoke your data protection declaration of consent at any time. Revocation of your consent does not affect the legality of the processing that was previously carried out on the basis of your consent until receipt of the revocation.

8.9 Automated case-by-case decision including profiling

You have the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing of your personal data, including profiling, which has legal effect against you or which significantly affects you in a similar way. This shall not apply if the decision

  1. is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a Contract between you and us as the controller of your personal data
  2. is authorized by Union or national legislation to which the person responsible is subject and that legislation provides for appropriate measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests, or
  3. with your express consent.

However, such decisions may not be based on special categories of personal data under Article 9(1) EU-GDPR, unless Article 9(2)(a) or (g) EU-GDPR applies and appropriate measures have been taken to protect your rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests.

With regard to the cases referred to in a. and c. above, we will take reasonable measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests, including at least the right to obtain the intervention of a person on our part and to have your position expressed and to challenge the decision by you.

8.10 Right of appeal to a supervisory authority

Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State in which you are resident, in which you work or in which the suspected infringement occurred, if you consider that the processing of personal data relating to you is contrary to the provisions of the EU GDPR.

The supervisory authority to which the complaint has been submitted shall inform the complainant of the status and the results of the complaint, including the possibility of a judicial remedy pursuant to Art. 78 EU DGR.

If you are of the opinion that your personal data is not being processed lawfully, you can contact the supervisory authority responsible for GINO AG – Elektrotechnische Fabrik.

The address is:

State Commissioner for Data Protection and Freedom of Information North Rhine-Westphalia
Kavalleriestrasse 2

Tel.: +49 (0) 2 11/384 24-0
Telefax: +49 (0) 2 11/384 24-10

9. Legal basis of the processing

Insofar as we obtain your consent for processing of personal data, Article 6 paragraph 1 letter a EU-GDPR forms the legal basis.

We do not knowingly collect personal information from individuals under the age of 16 or knowingly do not allow the individuals concerned to register on our websites or for our services.

Article 6(1)(b) EU-DSA provides the legal basis for the processing of your personal data necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are party. This also applies to processing operations necessary for the performance of pre-contractual measures.

Insofar as the processing of personal data is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Article 6 (1) letter c EU-GDPR serves as the legal basis.

In cases where vital interests of the data subject or of another natural person require the processing of personal data, Article 6(1)(d) EU-DSA serves as the legal basis.

If the processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of our company or of a third party and your interests, fundamental rights and freedoms do not outweigh the former interest, Article 6 (1) letter f EU-GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing. The legitimate interest of our company lies in the performance of our business activities. The legitimate interest of third parties who provide services for us lies in the performance of the activities contractually agreed between the respective third party and us.

10. Duration of the storage of personal data

Personal data is stored for the duration of the respective legal retention period. After expiry of the period or if the earmarking no longer applies, the data is routinely deleted, unless it is necessary for the initiation or fulfilment of a Contract.

11. Topicality and amendment of this data protection declaration
