Data Protection Statement
1. General information on the collection of personal data
a) The protection of your privacy when using our websites is very important to us – accordingly, we use your
personal data in conformity with the legal regulations on data protection. Personal data means all data
relating to you personally, e.g. name, address, email address, user behaviour. The following shall inform you
on how we are handling your personal data.
Controller according to Art. 4 subsection 7 EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is Dynabook
Europe GmbH, Stresemannallee 4b, D-41460 Neuss Germany; email: email@example.com. You can reach our data protection officer under SPIE Data Protection
GmbH, Datenschutzbeauftragte der Dynabook Europe GmbH, Lyoner Straße 9, D-60528 Frankfurt,
If you are under 16 years of age, please obtain permission of a parent/legal guardian prior to making
personal data available to us.
2. Collection of personal data when visiting our website
In principle, you may visit our website without disclosing to us who you are. As is standard for virtually all
other websites, the server on which our website is hosted (in the following, called “web server“) automatically
collects information from you when you visit us online. This data is technically necessary for us and ensures
the stability and security of the website..
The web server automatically recognizes certain personal data – for example, your IP address, the date and
time of day that you are on our website; the pages you visited on our site; the last website you visited before;
the browser you are using (e.g. Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari); the operating system you are using (e.g.
Windows, Linux, MAC OS) as well as the domain name and the address of your internet provider (e.g. 1&1,
information as well (its legal basis is Art. 6 subsection 1 sentence 1 f GDPR) for essential cookies. For all
other cookies, we obtain your consent in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1. S1a GDPR).
We regularly analyse such server protocols anonymously for statistical purposes (click stream analyses) so
that we can see how our websites are used. Based on these findings, we will then optimise our online
presence. We can additionally use such information in case of a system misuse to determine the originator
of such misuse in collaboration with your internet provider and/or local authorities.
In addition to the aforementioned data, cookies will be stored on your computer when you use our website.
Cookies are small text files that are saved to your hard drive in connection with the browser you are using
and by means of which the site issuing these cookies (in this case, our site) receives specific information.
Cookies cannot run programs or infect your computer with a virus. They are used to enhance the overall
user-friendliness and efficiency of an online presence.
aa) This website uses the following types of cookies, the scope and functionality of which will be explained
- Transient cookies (see bb)
- Persistent cookies (see cc).
bb)Transient cookies are automatically deleted upon closing the browser. This especially includes session
cookies. They save a so-called session ID which is used to attribute different requests from your browser to
the joint session. Your computer can thus be recognized, should you return to our website. Session cookies
are deleted when you log off or close the browser.
cc) Persistent cookies are deleted automatically after a pre-set period of time which may differ depending on
the cookie. You may delete the cookies anytime using your browser’s security settings.
dd) You may configure your browser settings according to your preference and thus decline, for example, the
acceptance of third-party cookies or all cookies. Please note that, in this case, you might possibly be unable
to use all functions of this website.

- Google Analytics
If you have given your consent, this website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by
Google LLC. The responsible service provider in the EU is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow
Street, Dublin 4, Ireland ("Google").
- Scope of processing
by means of the cookies about your use of this website is generally transferred to a Google server in the
USA and stored there.
We use the function 'anonymizeIP' (so-called IP masking): Due to the activation of IP anonymisation on this
website, your IP address will be abbreviated by Google within member states of the European Union or in
other contracting member states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional
cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and abbreviated there. The IP
address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.
During your visit to the website, the following data is collected, among other things:
pages you visit, your "click path"
achievement of "website goals" (conversions, e.g. newsletter sign-ups, downloads, purchases)
your user behaviour (e.g. clicks, dwell time, bounce rates)
your approximate location (region)
your IP address (in shortened form)
technical information about your browser and the end devices you use (e.g. language setting, screen resolution)
your internet service provider
the referrer URL (via which website/advertising medium you came to this website)
- Purposes of the processing
On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your
(pseudonymous) use of the website and compiling reports on website activity. The reports provided by
Google Analytics are used to analyse the performance of our website.
The recipient of the data is:
- Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland as a processor. We have
concluded an order processing agreement with Google for this purpose. Google LLC, based in California,
USA, and, if applicable, US authorities can access the data stored by Google.
- Transfer to third countries
A transfer of data to the USA cannot be excluded.
- Storage period
The data sent by us and linked to cookies are automatically deleted after 14 months. Data whose retention
period has been reached is automatically deleted once a month.
You can also prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website
(incl. your IP address) by Google and the processing of this data by Google by
a. not giving your consent to the setting of the cookie or
b. downloading and installing a browser add-on to deactivate Google Analytics

https://marketingplatform.google.com/about/analytics/terms/gb/ and https://policies.google.com.
d) Use of social media plug-ins
We do not use any social media plug-ins. In some places, we merely provide links to Linkedin, Xing,
YouTube and Twitter.
e) Embedding YouTube videos
We embed YouTube videos on some of our websites. The operator of the corresponding plugins is YouTube,
LLC, 901 Cherry Ave, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. When you visit a page with the YouTube plugin, a
connection to YouTube servers is established. This tells Youtube which pages you are visiting. If you are
logged into your YouTube account, YouTube can assign your surfing behaviour to you personally. You can
prevent this by logging out of your Youtube account first.
If you have deactivated the saving of cookies for the Google Ad programme, you will not have to expect any
such cookies when watching Youtube videos. However, Youtube also stores non-personal usage information
in other cookies. If you wish to prevent this, you must block the storage of cookies in your browser.
YouTube is used in the interest of an appealing presentation of our online offers. This represents a legitimate
interest within the meaning of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR. Insofar as a corresponding consent has been
requested, the processing is carried out exclusively on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR; the consent
can be revoked at any time.
Further information on data protection at "Youtube" can be found in the provider's data protection statement
f) Embedding Google Maps
On our website we use Google Maps (API) from Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin,
D04 E5W5, Ireland ("Google"). Google Maps is a web service for displaying interactive (land) maps in order
to visually present geographical information. By using this service, our location is shown to you and a
possible journey is made easier.
When you call up those sub-pages in which the Google Maps map is integrated, information about your use
of our website (such as your IP address) is transmitted to Google servers and stored there; this may also
involve transmission to the servers of Google LLC. in the USA. This occurs regardless of whether Google
provides a user account via which you are logged in or whether a user account exists. If you are logged in to
Google, your data will be directly assigned to your account. If you do not want your data to be associated
with your Google profile, you must log out before activating the button. Google stores your data (even for
users who are not logged in) as usage profiles and evaluates them. The collection, storage and evaluation
are carried out in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) DSGVO on the basis of consent. You have the right to
object to the creation of these user profiles, whereby you must contact Google to exercise this right.
If you do not consent to the future transmission of your data to Google in the context of the use of Google
Maps, you also have the option of completely deactivating the Google Maps web service by switching off the
