Use of social media plug-ins

We use the following social media plug-ins: Xing, YouTube, LinkedIn, Twitter and Instagram.

We apply a 2-click concept. This means that personal information will as a rule not be shared with providers of social media plug-ins when you visit our website. You can recognize providers of social media plug-ins by their initials or logo. The icons enable direct communication with the providers of plug-ins. Providers of plug-ins will receive information about your visit only if you click the respective icons and thus activate it. Furthermore, data as mentioned in chapter ‘For what purpose do we use personal data when you visit our website?’ will be transferred. According to Facebook Germany and Xing Germany, IP addresses are anonymized directly after capture. By activating the plug-in, your personal data will thus be forwarded to the respective provider and stored (in case of American providers in the US).

VIVAVIS is neither able to control data capture and data processing procedures nor do we know the purposes for processing, retentions times or to what extent data will be captured. We do not have any information concerning the deletion of data by plug-in providers.

Plug-in providers will store your details as user profiles and apply these profiles when placing ads and/or adapting the design of their websites as well as for market research. Above al, details will be analysed (even when users are not logged in) to place personalized ads and to inform users of social networks about your activities on our website. You have the right to object and may deny that providers create user profiles; however, you must address the respective plug-in provider to exercise that right. By means of plug-ins, we offer you an option to interact with social networks and other users and thus improve and optimize our services offered.

Data is forwarded regardless of whether you are logged in to a registered account at the particular plug-in provider. In case you are logged in at the plug-in provider, data captured on our website will directly be allocated to your corresponding account. If you push the activated button and, for example, link our website, the plug-in provider will also store this information in your account and share it publicly with your contacts. We recommend that you log out regularly after using social networks especially before activating the buttons and thus prevent allocation to your account at the plug-in provider.

Plug-in providers might process your personal data even in the US. Before you give consent, we refer to Article 49 (1) (a) GDPR and especially point out that transfer of data to the US bears possible risks due to the absence of an adequacy decision and appropriate safeguards. In particular, it might be difficult if not even impossible to exercise your rights as stipulated in the GDPR.

We will only transfer data as described above if you explicitly consented. Legal basis is Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR (‘consent’). Consent is voluntarily. You may refuse your consent without having to face negative consequences. You may also withdraw your consent at any time but only with effect for the future. You will not suffer any detriment for withdrawing your consent.

LinkedIn Insight tag

This website uses the LinkedIn™ insight tag of LinkedIn Ireland Unlimited Company, Wilton Place, Dublin 2, Ireland (‘LinkedIn’). The LinkedIn inside tag is a snippet of code we added to our website to enable detailed reports on campaigns as well as to collect information about visitors to our website. VIVAVIS uses the LinkedIn Insight Tag to track website conversions, re-engage our website visitors by retargeting them with LinkedIn ads.

The Insight Tag especially enables collecting information about website visitors including URL, referrer URL, IP address, devices and browser settings (user agent) as well as timestamp. IP addresses are cut or hashed (if used to reach users across devices). Direct identifiers are removed within seven days to pseudonymize data. We will delete remaining pseudonymized data within 180 days. LinkedIn does not share any personal data with us, but only offers reports (in which you are not identified) about the website’s target group and the performance of adverts. Furthermore, LinkedIn offers retargeting for website visitors. This way we are able to show targeted advertising elsewhere on the internet without identifying particular persons. We will also use information by which you cannot be identified to improve advertising with regard to relevance and to reach users across devices. In addition, members of LinkedIn are able to control the use of their personal data for advertising reasons in their account settings.

LinkedIn will also process your personal data in the US. Before you give consent, we refer to Article 49 (1) (a) GDPR and especially point out that transfer of data to the US bears possible risks due to the absence of an adequacy decision and appropriate safeguards.

The Facebook pixel captures five data types:

HTTP header – everything provided in HTTP headers. HTTP headers are part of Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) that is always used when exchanging requests and responses between browsers and serves. HTTP headers contain fields that provide IP addresses, details on web browsers, site location, document, referrer and information about the visitor of the website.

Pixel-specific information – this includes among other things Pixel ID and Facebook cookie

Button click events – these events include information about every button pressed by visitors of the website, the corresponding labels and pages opened with the button.

Optional values – developers and marketers may send additional information about the visit via personalized data events. Examples for personalized data: conversion value, page type, etc.

Form field names – these include names of website fields such as Email, Address and Number of pieces that are completed when purchasing a product or service. As a rule, the Facebook pixel does not capture any field values.

Trainings/Webinars/Events

VIVAVIS offers trainings, webinars and events for customers and other interested people dealing with current issues related to automation, telecontrol, control technology, metering and other topics.

You can register online, write an email to or send a fax to +497243/218-110.

We will process the following required details: company, name of participant, email address and address of participant if necessary. We will need these details to be able to allocate your registration properly and provide you with corresponding information about date and content of the seminar, webinar or other event as well as a participant certificate if required. Furthermore, we will need your details to issue and send an invoice in case you would like to attend paid seminars, webinars or events.

We may request additional information (salutation, title, position, phone number, how did you hear about our event?). These details are voluntarily.

Every time you register online for seminars, webinars or other events, your details are stored and processed in systems operated by LogMeIn Ireland Unlimited Company, The Reflector, 10 Hanover Quay, Dublin 2, D02R573, Ireland. Processing by LogMeIn (the processor) is governed by a data processing agreement in accordance with Art 28 GDPR. Our contractors will only process your data in accordance with legal requirements and as advised by the controller to fulfil the agreement. Furthermore, our contractors have taken required security measures as well as technical and organisational measures.

If you refuse to provide required details as mentioned above, you will not be able to attend any of our seminars, webinars or other events as these details are mandatory to fulfil the contract.

Legal basis is Article 6 (1) (b) GDPR (‘performance of contract’).

How long do we process your personal information?

The maximum period within which your data will be stored depends on the respective purpose. The storage period especially depends on for which time processing is required to meet specific purposes or fulfil legal requirements. Legal retention times as stipulated especially in § 257 of the German Commercial Code and § 147 Fiscal Code of Germany remain unaffected.

Who receives personal information?

We will forward your personal details to specific departments within VIVAVIS if required.

Legal basis for data forwarding within the company is Art 6 (1) (f) (‘legitimate interest’). Processing is thus necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by VIVAVIS, except where such interests are overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject. Overriding legitimate interest within a group of companies is substantiated in Recital 48 GDPR. Controllers that are part of a group of undertakings or institutions affiliated to a central body may have a legitimate interest in transmitting personal data within the group of undertakings for internal administrative purposes, including the processing of clients’ or employees’ personal data (Art 6 (1) (f)).

To process your personal information, we will partially employ external service providers. We selected these service providers with due care; they are subject to contracts as well as regular controls and bound by instructions. All requirements stipulated in Article 28 GDPR will be considered.

Exemptions regarding the transmission of your personal information will only be made if explicitly described in this policy.

Where is personal information processed?

Your data is only processed in Germany or in member states of the European Union. We will not transfer your personal details to third countries or international organisations unless determined otherwise by our privacy notice.

Insofar as we transfer personal data to third countries outside the EU, transfer will only be made if the European Commission has decided that the third country ensures an adequate level of protection or provides other appropriate safeguards (eg binding corporate rules or standard data protection clauses adopted by the Commission) or if you consented (Art 44-50 GDPR).

Security/Technical and organizational measures

We will take every appropriate necessary technical and organisational measure in accordance with Articles 24, 25 and 32 GDPR to protect your data from accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, alteration, unauthorized disclosure or access and misuse.

We will consider legal requirements regarding pseudonymization and encryption of personal data, confidentiality, integrity and availability. We will also take into account the capacity of systems and services used to process and provide personal data as well as the possibility to quickly restore your data in case of physical or technical incidents. Furthermore, we will observe legal instructions when implementing procedures for regular analysis, assessing and evaluating the effectiveness of technical and organisational measures taken to guarantee secure processing.

In addition, we will also consider Art 25 GDPR with regard to privacy by design and default.

Your rights

Regarding your personal data, these are your rights as stipulated in GDPR:

              – right of access

              – right to rectification or erasure

              – right to restriction of processing

              – right to object

              – right to data portability

Insofar as we base processing of personal data on legitimate interest, you will have the right to object to processing. This especially applies, if processing is not required to fulfil a contract with you. When you file an objection, please explain the reasons why we should not process your personal information as intended. In case your objection is properly substantiated, we will analyse the situation and either terminate or adapt data processing, or we will explain our overriding reasons based on which we will continue processing.

Furthermore, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority (eg Commissioner for Data Protection and Freedom of Information Baden-Wurttemberg, represented by Stefan Brink, Lautenschlagerstrasse 20, D-70173 Stuttgart).

For suggestions and questions related to the processing of your personal data or your rights explained above, you may contact us or our external data protection manager:
