Your privacy is important to us. It is Probatix’s policy to respect your privacy with respect to any information that we collect from you through our website, https://probatix.de, and other websites that we own and operate.

1. Information We Collect

When you visit our website, our servers may automatically log the standard data provided by your web browser. This may include your computer’s Internet Protocol (IP) address, your browser type and version, the pages you have visited, the time and date of your visit, the time spent on each page and other details.

Personal information

We may ask you for personal information such as your:

  • Surname
  • e-mail
  • Telephone / cell phone number

2. Legal bases for processing

We will process your personal data lawfully, fairly and transparently. We only collect and process information about you if we have a legal basis to do so.

These legal bases depend on which services you use and how you use them, i.e. we only collect and use your information where we use it:

  • it is necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are a party or to take steps at your request before such a contract is concluded (e.g. when we provide a service you have requested);
  • it satisfies a legitimate interest (which is not overlaid by your data protection interests), e.g. for research and development, for marketing and promoting our services and for protecting our legal rights and interests;
  • You give us consent to do this for a specific purpose (e.g. you can allow us to send you our newsletter); or
  • we need to process your data in order to comply with a legal obligation.

If you consent to us using information about you for a specific purpose, you have the right to change your mind at any time (however, this does not affect processing that has already taken place).

We do not keep personal information longer than necessary. While we retain this information, we will protect it to the extent commercially acceptable to prevent loss and theft, as well as unauthorized access, disclosure, copying, use or alteration. However, we advise you that no method of electronic transmission or storage is 100% secure and cannot guarantee absolute data security. If necessary, we can keep your personal data to fulfill a legal obligation or to protect your vital interests or the vital interests of another natural person.

3. Collection and use of information

We may collect, store, use and disclose information for the following purposes, and personal information will not be further processed in a way that is incompatible with these purposes:

  • to contact and communicate with you;
  • for internal records and administrative purposes;
  • for advertising and marketing, including sending you promotional information about our products and services and information about third parties that we believe may be of interest to you; and
  • to review your application.

4. Disclosure of personal information to third parties

We can disclose personal information:

  • Third party service providers so that they can offer their services, including (without limitation) IT service providers, data storage, hosting and server providers, ad networks, analytics, error loggers, debt collection agencies, maintenance or problem solving providers, marketing or advertising providers, professional consultants and payment system operators;

The personal data we collect is stored and processed where we or our partners, partner companies and third-party providers maintain facilities. By providing us with your personal data, you consent to it being passed on to these foreign third parties.

We ensure that any transfer of personal data from countries in the European Economic Area (EEA) to countries outside the EEA is protected by appropriate security measures, e.g. by using standard data protection clauses approved by the European Commission or by using binding company rules or other legally recognized means.

When we transfer personal information from one non-EEA country to another country, you acknowledge that third parties in other jurisdictions may not be subject to similar data protection laws to our jurisdiction. There is a risk if such a third party engages in any act or practice that violates the data protection laws in our jurisdiction and this could mean that you will not be able to appeal under the data protection laws of our jurisdiction.
