We are delighted about your interest in our company. Data protection is of particular importance to the management of APIPRO Natura. The website use of APIPRO Natura is possible without any indication of personal data. However, if a person wishes to use our company’s special services through our website, personal data processing may be required. If the processing of personal data is required, and there is no legal basis for such processing, we generally seek the consent of the person.
APIPRO Natura, as the website controller, has implemented numerous technical and organisational measures to ensure the most complete protection possible for personal data processed through this website. Nevertheless, Internet-based data transmissions can generally have security holes, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, every now regarded person concerned is free to submit personal data to us by alternative means, for example, by telephone.
a) Personal data
Personal data means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (now regarded as the “affected person”). A natural person is considered to be identifiable who, directly or indirectly, in particular by association with an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online id or one or more special features, expresses the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of this natural person can be identified.
b) The person concerned
Betroffene Person ist jede identifizierte oder identifizierbare natürliche Person, deren personenbezogene Daten von dem für die Verarbeitung Verantwortlichen verarbeitet werden.
Processing means any process or series of operations related to personal data, such as collecting, capturing, organising, storing, adapting or modifying, reading out, querying, using, with or without the aid of automated procedures; disclosure by transmission, dissemination or any other form of provision, reconciliation or association, restriction, erasure or destruction.
d) Restriction of processing
Restriction of the processing is the marking of stored personal data to limit their future processing.
Profiling is any type of automated processing of personal data that involves the use of such personal information to evaluate and predict certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular issues relating to job performance, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behavior, whereabouts, or relocation of that natural person.
Pseudonymisation is the processing of personal data in such a way that personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific affected person without the need for additional information, provided that such additional information is kept separate and subject to technical and organisational measures to ensure that the personal data is not assigned to an identified or identifiable natural person.
g) Controller or for the content responsible controller
The controller or content responsible controller is the natural or legal person, public authority, body, alone or in partnership with others, decides on the purposes and means of personal data processing. Where the purposes and means of such processing are determined by Union law or the law of the Member States, the controller or the specific criteria for his designation may be provided for under Union or national law.
A processor is a natural or legal person, public authority, or body that processes personal data on behalf of the controller.
The recipient is a natural or legal person, agency, or other entity to whom Personal Data is disclosed, whether or not it is a third party. However, authorities which may receive personal data under Union or national law in connection with a particular mission are not considered to be beneficiaries.
j) Third parties
The third is a natural or legal person, public authority, body or other than the data subject, the controller, the processor and the persons authorised under the direct responsibility of the controller or processor to process the personal data.
Consent is any act of volition voluntarily and unambiguously given by the affected person in an informed and unambiguous manner in the form of a statement or other unambiguous confirmatory act that indicates to the affected person that they consent to the processing of the personal data concerning them is.
2. Name and address of the controller
The person responsible within the meaning of the General Data Protection Regulation, other data protection laws in the Member States of the European Union and other provisions with a data protection character is:

If the affected person deactivates the setting of cookies in the Internet browser used, not all functions of our website may be fully usable.
4. Collecting general data and information
The website of APIPRO Natura collects a series of general data and information each time the website is accessed by an affected person or an automated system. This public data and information are stored in the log files of the server. The (1) browser types and versions used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the website from which an accessing system accesses our website (so-called referrers), (4) the sub-web pages, which can be accessed via (5) the date and time of access to the website, (6) an Internet Protocol (IP) address, (7) the Internet service provider of the accessing system and (8) other similar data and information used in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.
In using this general data and information, APIPRO Natura does not draw any conclusions about the person concerned. Instead, this information is required to (1) accurately deliver the contents of our website, (2) to optimise the content of our website and to promote it, (3) to ensure the continued functioning of our information technology systems and the technology of our website, and ( 4) to provide law enforcement authorities with the necessary information for prosecution in case of a cyberattack. This anonymously collected data and information are therefore evaluated by APIPRO Natura on the one hand statistically and further to increase the privacy and data security in our company to ultimately ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data processed by us. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by an affected person.

7. Data protection provisions about the application and use of Google Analytics (with anonymization function)
On this website, the controller has integrated the component of Google Analytics (with the anonymizer function). Google Analytics is a web analytics service. Web analytics is the collection, gathering, and analysis of data about the behavior of visitors to websites. A web analysis service collects, inter alia, data about the website from which a person has come (the so-called referrer), which sub-pages were visited, or how often and for what duration a sub-page was viewed. Web analytics are mainly used for the optimization of a website and in order to carry out a cost-benefit analysis of Internet advertising.
The operator of the Google Analytics component is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland.
For the web analytics through Google Analytics the controller uses the application “_gat. _anonymizeIp”. By means of this application the IP address of the Internet connection of the data subject is abridged by Google and anonymised when accessing our websites from a Member State of the European Union or another Contracting State to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.
The purpose of the Google Analytics component is to analyze the traffic on our website. Google uses the collected data and information, inter alia, to evaluate the use of our website and to provide online reports, which show the activities on our websites, and to provide other services concerning the use of our Internet site for us.
Google Analytics places a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. The definition of cookies is explained above. With the setting of the cookie, Google is enabled to analyze the use of our website. With each call-up to one of the individual pages of this Internet site, which is operated by the controller and into which a Google Analytics component was integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject will automatically submit data through the Google Analytics component for the purpose of online advertising and the settlement of commissions to Google. During the course of this technical procedure, the enterprise Google gains knowledge of personal information, such as the IP address of the data subject, which serves Google, inter alia, to understand the origin of visitors and clicks, and subsequently create commission settlements.
The cookie is used to store personal information, such as the access time, the location from which the access was made, and the frequency of visits of our website by the data subject. With each visit to our Internet site, such personal data, including the IP address of the Internet access used by the data subject, will be transmitted to Google in the United States of America. These personal data are stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may pass these personal data collected through the technical procedure to third parties.
The data subject may, as stated above, prevent the setting of cookies through our website at any time by means of a corresponding adjustment of the web browser used and thus permanently deny the setting of cookies. Such an adjustment to the Internet browser used would also prevent Google Analytics from setting a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. In addition, cookies already in use by Google Analytics may be deleted at any time via a web browser or other software programs.
Further information and the applicable data protection provisions of Google may be retrieved under https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/ and under http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/us.html. Google Analytics is further explained under the following Link https://www.google.com/analytics/.
8. Legal basis of processing
Art. 6 I lit. A DS-GVO serves our company as the legal basis for processing operations in which we obtain consent for a particular processing purpose. If the processing of personal data is necessary to fulfil a contract of which the affected person is a 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 DS-GVO. The same applies to processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures, for example, in the case of inquiries about 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 DS-GVO. In rare cases, the processing of personal data may be required to protect the vital interests of the affected person or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor to our premises were injured and his or her name, age, health insurance or other vital information would have to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or another third party. Then the processing would be based on Art. 6 I lit. d DS-GVOs.
Ultimately, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I lit. f DS-GVOs. Processing operations that are not covered by any of the above legal bases are based on this legal basis if the 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 person concerned prevail. Such processing operations are particularly permitted because the European legislator has specifically mentioned them. In that regard, it considered that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the data subject is a customer of the controller (recital 47, second sentence, 2 DS-GVO).
9. Qualifying interests in the processing that are being pursued by the controller or a third party
Based on the processing of personal data based on Article 6, I lit. f DS-GVO is our legitimate interest in conducting our business for the benefit of all of our employees and our shareholders.
10. Duration for which the personal data is stored
The criterion for the duration of the storage of personal data is the respective statutory retention period. After the deadline, the corresponding data will be routinely deleted, if they are no longer required to fulfill the contract or to initiate a contract.
11. Legal or contractual provisions for the provision of personal data; Necessity for the conclusion of the contract; Obligation of the affected person 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 an affected person provides us with personal data that must subsequently be processed by us. For example, the affected person is required to provide us with personal information when our company concludes a contract with her. Failure to provide personal data would mean that the contract with the person concerned could not be closed.
Before any personal data being provided by the person concerned, the person concerned 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 contract or required for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data, and what would have resulted from the failure to provide the personal data.
12. existence of automated decision-making
As a responsible company, we refrain from automatic decision-making or profiling.
13. SSL or TLS encryption
This site uses, for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or requests that you send to us as a site operator, an SSL or. TLS encryption. An encrypted connection is indicated by the browser’s address bar changing from “http: //” to “https: //” and the lock icon in your browser bar.
If SSL or TLS encryption is enabled, the data you submit to us can not be read by third parties.
14. Google reCAPTCHA
We use “Google reCAPTCHA” (hereafter “reCAPTCHA”) on our websites. The provider is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland.
With reCAPTCHA, we want to check if the data entry on our websites (for example, in a contact form) is done by a human or by an automated program. To do this, reCAPTCHA analyses the behavior of the website visitor based on various characteristics. This analysis begins automatically as soon as the website visitor enters the website. For analysis, reCAPTCHA evaluates various information (for example, the IP address, website visitor’s time spent on the website, or user mouse movements). The data collected during the analysis will be forwarded to Google.
The reCAPTCHA analyses are entirely in the background. Site visitors are not advised that an analysis is taking place.
Data processing is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. F DSGVO. The Web site operator has a legitimate interest in protecting its web sites from abusive automated spying and SPAM.
15. Google Maps
This site uses the mapping service Google Maps via an API. The provider is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland.
To use the features of Google Maps, it is necessary to save your IP address. This information is usually transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. The provider of this page does not influence this data transfer.
The use of Google Maps is for the sake of an appealing presentation of our online offers easy findability of the places we specify on the website. This constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.
16. Google Web Fonts
This site uses so-called web fonts provided by Google for the uniform representation of fonts. When you call up a page, your browser loads the required web fonts into your browser cache to correctly display texts and fonts.
To do this, the browser you use must connect to Google’s servers. As a result, Google learns that our website has been accessed via your IP address. The use of Google Web Fonts is in the interest of a consistent and attractive presentation of our online services. This constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.
If your browser does not support web fonts, a default font will be used by your computer.
