Data Protection Notice

We are very pleased about your interest in our company. The management of M-Way Solutions GmbH attaches great importance to data protection. A use of the internet pages of M-Way Solutions GmbH is basically possible without any indication of personal data. However, if a person concerned would like to use special services of our company via our website, it might be necessary to process personal data. If the processing of personal data is necessary and there is no legal basis for such processing, we generally obtain the consent of the person concerned. The processing of personal data, such as the name, address, e-mail address or telephone number of a data subject, is always carried out in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation and in compliance with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to M-Way Solutions GmbH. By means of this privacy policy, our company would like to inform the public about the type, scope and purpose of the personal data we collect, use and process. Furthermore, this privacy policy informs affected persons about their rights. M-Way Solutions GmbH, as the person responsible for processing, has implemented numerous technical and organizational measures to ensure the most complete protection possible of the personal data processed via this website. Nevertheless, Internet-based data transmissions can generally have security gaps, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, every person concerned is free to transmit personal data to us by alternative means, such as by telephone.

4 Cookies

Our website uses so-called “cookies”. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your end device either temporarily for the duration of a session (session cookies) or permanently (permanent cookies). Session cookies are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Permanent cookies remain stored on your terminal device until you delete them yourself or until your web browser automatically resolves them. Cookies have various functions. Many cookies are technically necessary, as certain website functions would not work without them (e.g. the shopping basket function or language settings). Other cookies are used to evaluate user behavior or display advertising. Technically necessary cookies are stored on the basis of art. 6 par. 1 sect. f GDPR. We have a legitimate interest in the storage of cookies for the technically error-free and optimized provision of our services. Other cookies are only stored with your consent on the basis of art. 6 par. 1 sect. a GDPR. This consent can be revoked at any time for the future. The legal basis can also be derived from art. 6 par. 1 sect. b GDPR if the processing is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party or for the implementation of pre-contractual measures taken at the request of the data subject. Insofar as cookies are used for analysis purposes, we will inform you separately about this within the framework of this data protection declaration and obtain your consent.

You can set your browser so that you

  • are informed about the setting of cookies,
  • allow cookies only in individual cases,
  • exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or generally,
  • activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser.

You can manage the cookie settings yourself in the browser (depending on the provider). You can also manage cookies of many companies and functions used for advertising individually. To do this, use the appropriate user tools, available at AboutAds or YourOnlineChoices. Most browsers also offer a so-called “do-not-track function”. When this feature is enabled, the browser tells ad networks, websites and applications that you do not wish to be “tracked” for behavioral advertising and the like. For information and instructions on how to edit this feature, please contact your browser provider.

In addition, you can prevent the loading of so-called scripts by default. “NoScript” allows JavaScripts, Java and other plug-ins to be executed only on trusted domains of your choice. Information and instructions on how to edit this function can be obtained from your browser provider (e.g. for Mozilla Firefox at : Firefox Addon NoScript ). Please note that if you disable cookies, the functionality of our website may be limited.

7 Google Analytics

Our website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called cookies. These are text files which are stored on your computer and which enable an analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by cookies about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. We only use Google Analytics with activated IP anonymization. The IP address of Google users within the member states of the European Union or in other states party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area is shortened, which makes it impossible to identify the user. Google is certified for the US-European data protection agreement “Privacy Shield”, which guarantees compliance with the data protection level applicable in the EU. The processing is carried out in accordance with art. 6 par. 1 sect. a GDPR on the basis of user consent. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website. This serves the purpose of compiling reports on website activities and providing further services to the website operator in connection with the use of the website and the Internet. The IP address transmitted by your browser within the framework of Google Analytics is not combined with other data from Google. The terms of use of Google Analytics and information on data protection can be accessed via the following links:

8 Google Ads

The data controller has integrated Google Ads on this website. Google Ads is an Internet advertising service that allows advertisers to display ads in Google’s search engine results as well as in the Google advertising network. Google Ads allows an advertiser to specify pre-defined keywords that will display an ad in Google’s search engine results only when the user uses the search engine to retrieve a keyword relevant search result. In the Google advertising network, the ads are distributed to topic-relevant Internet pages by means of an automatic algorithm and in accordance with the previously defined keywords. The operating company of Google Ads services is Google Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland. The purpose of Google Ads is to promote our website by displaying advertisements relevant to our interests on the websites of third party companies and in the search engine results of the Google search engine and by displaying third-party advertisements on our website. If a person concerned reaches our website via a Google ad, a so-called conversion cookie is stored on the information technology system of the person concerned by Google. A conversion cookie loses its validity after thirty days and does not serve to identify the person concerned. If the cookie has not expired, the conversion cookie is used to determine whether certain sub-pages, such as the shopping cart from an online store system, have been accessed on our website. The conversion cookie enables both we and Google to track whether a person who has reached our website via an ad display has generated sales, i.e. whether he or she has completed or abandoned a purchase. The data and information collected through the use of the conversion cookie is used by Google to create visit statistics for our website. These visit statistics are in turn used by us to determine the total number of users that were referred to us via ads, i.e. to determine the success or failure of the respective ad and to optimize our ads for the future. Neither our company nor other Google Ads advertisers receive information from Google that could be used to identify the person concerned. The processing is carried out in accordance with art. 6 par. 1 sect. a GDPR on the basis of your consent. By means of the conversion cookie, personal information, such as the websites visited by the data subject, is stored. Each time our website is visited, personal data, including the IP address of the Internet connection used by the person concerned, is transmitted to Google. This personal data may be stored by Google in the USA. The person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies by our website, as described above, at any time by means of a corresponding setting in the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent Google from setting a conversion cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. In addition, a cookie already set by Google Ads can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs. Furthermore, the person concerned has the opportunity to object to interest-based advertising by Google. To do so, the person concerned must access www.google.de/settings/ads from each of the Internet browsers he or she uses and make the desired settings there. Further information and Google’s applicable data protection regulations can be found at Google Policies DE Privacy.

9 Google reCAPTCHA

We use “Google reCAPTCHA” (hereinafter “reCAPTCHA”) on our website. The provider is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland (“Google”). The purpose of reCAPTCHA is to check whether the data input on our website (e.g. in a contact form) is done by a human being or by an automated program. For this purpose, reCAPTCHA analyzes the behavior of the website visitor based on various characteristics. This analysis starts automatically as soon as the website visitor enters the website. For analysis, reCAPTCHA evaluates various information, e.g.

  • IP address
  • Duration of the website visitor’s stay on the website
  • mouse movements made by the user
  • The data collected during the analysis is forwarded to Google.

The reCAPTCHA analyses run completely in the background. Website visitors are not notified that an analysis is taking place. The data processing is based on art. 6 par. 1 sect. f GDPR. We have a legitimate interest in protecting our website from improper automated spying and from unwanted automated transmissions (spam). Google LLC with headquarters in the USA is certified for the US-European data protection agreement “Privacy Shield”, which guarantees compliance with the data protection level applicable in the EU. We do not store any personal data from the use of reCAPTCHA. In general, personal data of the person concerned will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage ceases to apply.

10 YouTube

On the web pages of our Internet presence we include videos from “YouTube”, a social media platform of Google Ireland Limited, Google Building Gordon House, Barrow St, Dublin 4, Ireland (hereinafter referred to as “Google”). When a website in which a video from YouTube is integrated is called up, data is transmitted to a Google server and stored there. If you have a user account with Google and are registered, Google can thereby assign the visit to your user account. Google stores this data as user profiles and uses them for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or demand-oriented design of its websites. Such an evaluation is carried out in particular (also for users who are not logged in) for the purpose of presenting need-based advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles. Please contact Google directly. We integrate content from YouTube on the web pages of our Internet presence in order to make this content immediately available to you without you having to call up the content separately on YouTube. This allows you to use functions of the social media platform YouTube already on our website. This allows us to improve our offer and the user experience for you and make it more interesting. The legal basis is your consent according to art. 6 par. 1 sect. a GDPR. If you want to prevent the transfer of data, you cannot use the functions of YouTube. Irrespective of this, we recommend that you regularly log out of your user account after using a social network, but especially before activating integrated content, as this will enable you to avoid assignment to your profile with the respective provider.
