3. Data collection when using cookies
MATSEN CHEMIE AG can provide users of this website with more user-friendly services that would not be possible without the implementation of cookies.
Rejection and deletion of cookies
A general contradiction to the use of the cookies used for online marketing purposes can be found in a variety of services, especially in the case of tracking, via the US website www.aboutads.info/choices or the EU site www.youronlinechoices.com. Furthermore, the storage of cookies can be achieved by switching them off in the settings of the browser. Please note that not all features of this online service may be used.
4. Data collection through the use and application of Google-AdWords
The controller has integrated Google AdWords on this website. Google AdWords is an Internet advertising service that allows advertisers to run both Google and Google Network search engine results. Google AdWords allows an advertiser to pre-set keywords that will display an ad on Google's search engine results only when the search engine retrieves a keyword-related search result. In the Google Network, ads are distributed on topical web pages using an automated algorithm and according to pre-defined keywords.
The operating company for the services of Google AdWords is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.
The purpose of Google AdWords is to promote our website by displaying interest-based advertising on third-party websites and in the search engine results of Google's search engine and by displaying advertisements on our website.
If a data subject arrives on our website via a Google ad, a so-called conversion cookie will be stored on Google's information technology system by Google. What cookies are, has already been explained above. A conversion cookie expires after thirty days and is not used to identify the data subject. Regarding the conversion, in case the cookie has not yet expired, a cookie is used to trace whether certain sub-pages, such as the shopping cart from an online shop system, were accessed on our website. The conversion cookie allows both us and Google to understand whether an affected person who came to our website via an AdWords ad-generated revenue, ie, completed or canceled a purchase.
The data and information collected through the use of the conversion cookie are used by Google to create visitor statistics for our website. These visit statistics are then used by us to determine the total number of users who have been sent to us through Google AdWords ads, in order to determine the success or failure of each AdWords ad and to optimize our AdWords ads for the future. Neither our company nor any other Google AdWords advertiser receives any information from Google that could identify the data subject.
The conversion cookie stores personally identifiable information, such as the web pages visited by the affected person. Each time you visit our website, your personal information, including the IP address of the Internet connection used by the data subject, will be transferred to Google in the United States of America. This personal information is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may transfer such personal data collected through the technical process to third parties.
Furthermore, the data subject has the opportunity to object to Google's interest-based advertising. To do this, the person concerned must access the link www.google.com/settings/ads from each of the Internet browsers they use and make the desired settings there.
5. Data collection through the use and application of Google-AdSense
The controller has integrated Google AdSense on this website. Google AdSense is an online service that provides third-party advertising mediation. Google AdSense is based on an algorithm that selects advertisements displayed on third-party websites in accordance with the contents of the respective third-party website. Google AdSense allows interest-based targeting of the Internet user, which is implemented by generating individual user profiles.
The operating company of the Google AdSense component is the Alphabet Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.
The purpose of the Google AdSense component is to include advertisements on our website. Google AdSense sets a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. What cookies are, has already been explained above. By using this cookie, Alphabet Inc. provides an analysis of the use of our website. Each visit to one of the pages of this site operated by the controller and incorporating a Google AdSense component automatically initiates the Internet browser on the information technology system of the person concerned through the respective Google AdSense component to submit data to Alphabet Inc. for purposes of online advertising and commission settlement. As part of this technical process, Alphabet Inc. gains knowledge of personal information, such as the IP address of the data subject, which is used by Alphabet Inc., inter alia, to understand the origin of visitors and clicks and, as a result, to facilitate commission settlement.
The affected person can prevent the setting of cookies through our website, as shown above, at any time by means of a corresponding setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently contradict the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent Alphabet Inc. from setting a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. In addition, a cookie already set by Alphabet Inc. can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs.
Google AdSense also uses so-called counting pixels. A counting pixel is a miniature graphic that is embedded in web pages to enable log file recording and log file analysis, whereby a statistical evaluation can be performed. Based on the embedded pixel count, Alphabet Inc. can detect if and when an internet page was opened by an affected person and which links the affected person clicked on. Counting pixels are used, among other things, to evaluate the flow of visitors to a website.
Google AdSense will transfer personal information and information, including the IP address required to collect and bill the displayed advertising, to Alphabet Inc. in the United States of America. This personal information is stored and processed in the United States of America. Alphabet Inc. may transfer such personal information collected through the technical process to third parties.
Google AdSense will be available at this link:

6. Data collection through the use and application of Google Analytics (with anonymization function)
The controller has integrated on this website the component Google Analytics (with anonymization function). Google Analytics is a web analytics service. Web analysis is the collection, and analysis of data about the behavior of visitors to websites. Among other things, a web analysis service collects data in order to find out how a data subject was referred from one webpage to another webpage (so-called referrers), to find out which subpages of the website were accessed or how often and for which length of stay a subpage was viewed. A web analysis is mainly used to optimize a website and cost-benefit analysis of Internet advertising.
The operating company of the Google Analytics component is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.
The controller uses the addition "_gat._anonymizeIp" for web analytics via Google Analytics. By means of this addendum, the IP address of the Internet access of the data subject will be shortened and anonymized by Google if the access to our website is from a Member State of the European Union or from another state that is party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.
The purpose of the Google Analytics component is to analyze visitor flows on our website. Among other things, Google uses the data and information obtained to evaluate the use of our website, to compile for us online reports showing the activities on our websites, and to provide other services related to the use of our website.
Google Analytics uses a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. What cookies are, has already been explained above. By using this cookie Google is enabled to analyze the usage of our website. Each time one of the pages of this website is accessed by the controller and a Google Analytics component has been integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the person concerned is automatically initiated by the respective Google Analytics component to submit data to Google for online analysis purposes. As part of this technical process, Google will be aware of personal data, such as the IP address of the person concerned, which serve, among other things, Google to track the origin of the visitors and clicks, and subsequently make commission settlements possible.
The cookie stores personally identifiable information, such as access time, the location from which access was made, and the frequency of site visits by the data subject. Each time you visit our website, your personal information, including the IP address of the Internet connection used by the data subject, is transferred to Google in the United States of America. This personal information is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may transfer such personal data collected through the technical process to third parties.
The affected person can prevent the setting of cookies through our website, as shown above, at any time by means of a corresponding setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently contradict the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent Google from setting a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. In addition, a cookie already set by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs.

7. Data collection when using the contact form
Due to legal regulations, the MATSEN CHEMIE AG website contains information that enables quick electronic contact to our company 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 data controller by e-mail or through a contact form, the personal data provided by the data subject will be automatically saved. Such personal data, voluntarily transmitted by an individual to the controller, is stored for the purpose of processing or contacting the data subject. There is no disclosure of this personal data to third parties.
8. Data collection for applications and during the application procedure
The data controller collects and processes the personal data of applicants for the purpose of processing the application procedure. The processing can also be done electronically. This is particularly the case if an applicant submits the application by electronic means, i.e. by e-mail, to the controller. If the controller concludes a contract of employment with an applicant, the data transmitted will be stored for the purposes of the employment relationship in accordance with the law. If no employment contract is concluded with the candidate by the controller, the application documents will be automatically deleted two months after the announcement of the rejection decision, unless deletion precludes other legitimate interests of the controller. Other legitimate interest are in this sense, for example, a burden of proof in a procedure under the General Equal Treatment Act (AGG).
Legal basis of a processing
Art. 6 I lit. (a) GDPR serves our company as the legal basis for processing operations where we obtain consent for a particular processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary in order to fulfill a contract of which the data subject is a contracting party, as is the case, for example, in processing operations necessary for the supply of goods or the provision of any other service or consideration, processing shall be based on Art. 6 I lit. (b) GDPR. The same applies to process operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of inquiries regarding our products or services. If our company is subject to a legal obligation which requires the processing of personal data, such as the fulfillment of tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. (c) GDPR. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be required 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 premises was injured and his or her name, age, health insurance or other vital information would have to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third parties. Then the processing would be based on Art. 6 I lit. (d) GDPR is based.
Ultimately, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I lit. (f) GDPRs. On this legal basis, processing operations that are not covered by any of the above legal bases are required if processing is necessary to safeguard the legitimate interests of our company or a third party, unless the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the data subject prevail. Such processing operations are particularly allowed to us because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In that regard, the European legislator considered that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a customer of the controller (recital 47, second sentence, GDPR).
Legitimate interests in the processing of data being pursued by the controller or a third party
If is the processing of personal data based on Article 6 I lit. (f) GDPR, it is our legitimate interest in conducting our business for the benefit of all of our employees and our shareholders.
Legal or contractual regulation for the provision of personal data; Necessity for the conclusion of the contract; Obligation of the data subject to provide the personal data; possible consequences of non-provision
We clarify that the provision of personal information is in part required by law (such as tax regulations) or may result from contractual arrangements (such as details of the contractor).
Occasionally it may be necessary for a contract to be concluded, that the data subject provides us with personal data that must subsequently be processed by us. For example, the data subject is required to provide us with personal information when our company enters into a contract with him/her. Failure to provide the personal data would mean that the contract with the data subject could not be concluded.
Prior to any personal data being provided by the data subject, the data subject must contact one of our employees. Our employee will inform the individual on a case-by-case basis
- whether the provision of the personal data is required by law or

Integration of services and content of third parties
Application and use of Google+
The controller has integrated the Google+ button as a component on this website. Google+ is a so-called social network. A social network is an Internet-based social meeting place, an online community that typically allows users to communicate with each other and interact in a virtual space. A social network can serve as a platform to exchange views and experiences or it allows the Internet community to provide personal or business information. Google+ allows social network users to create private profiles, upload photos, and socialize through friend requests, among others.
Google+'s operating company is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.
Each time one of the individual pages of this website is called up, which is operated by the person responsible for processing and on which a Google button has been integrated, the Internet browser is automatically prompted to download a representation of the corresponding Google button from Google+ on the information technology system of the data subject. As part of this technical process, Google will be aware of which specific bottom of our website is visited by the data subject. More detailed information on Google+ is available at https://developers.google.com/+/.
If the person is logged in to Google+ at the same time, Google recognizes every time the data subject visits our webpage, which specific sub-page of our website visited by the data subject during the entire duration of each stay on our website. This information is collected through the Google+ button and assigned by Google to the relevant Google + account of the data subject.
If the data subject activates one of the Google+ buttons integrated on our website and thus makes a Google+ 1 recommendation, Google assigns this information to the personal Google+ user account of the data subject and stores this personal data. Google will store the Google+1 recommendation of the data subject and make it publicly available in accordance with the conditions accepted by the data subject. A Google +1 referral made by the data subject on this website will be subsequently provided together with other personal information, such as the name of the Google + 1 account used by the data subject and the photo in other Google services stored therein, For example, the search engine results of the Google search engine, the Google account of the data subject or other places, such as on websites or in connection with advertisements stored and processed. Furthermore, Google is able to link the visit to this website with other personal data stored on Google. Google also records this personal information for the purpose of improving or optimizing Google's different services.
Google always receives information via the Google+ button that the data subject has visited our website, if the data subject is simultaneously logged in to Google+ at the time of accessing our website; this happens regardless of whether the person clicks the Google+ button or not.
Application and use of Google Fonts
We integrate the fonts ("Google Fonts") from Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
Application and use of Google Maps
We integrate the maps of the “Google Maps” service from Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. The processed data can include, in particular, IP addresses and location data of the users, which, however, are not collected without their consent (usually carried out as part of the settings of their mobile devices). The data can be processed in the USA.
