Data security

In order to protect your data from unwanted access as comprehensively as possible, we take technical and organizational measures. We use an encryption procedure on our web pages. Your data is transferred from your computer to our server and vice versa via the Internet using TLS encryption. You can usually recognize this by the fact that the lock symbol is closed in the status bar of your browser and the address line begins with https://.

  • the access status (content transferred, content not found),
  • the description of the used web browser and operating system,
  • the referral link, which indicates from which page you reached ours.

We store the complete IP address transmitted by your web browser for a period of seven days in the interest of detecting, limiting and eliminating attacks on our web pages. After this period, we delete or anonymize the IP address. The legal basis for this processing is Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR.

They may also be necessary to enable user guidance, security and implementation of the site. The legal basis for using these cookies is our legitimate interest according to Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR.

Map Services

On our web sites, we embed map services which are not stored on our servers. In order to prevent the automatic downloading of third-party content when you visit our web sites with embedded map services, we only show locally stored preview images of the maps as a first step. This does not provide the third-party provider with any information.

Only after you click on the preview image, third-party content be will downloaded. This provides the third party with information that you have accessed our site and with the usage data technically required for this purpose. We have no influence on the further data processing by the third-party provider. By clicking on the preview image, you give us the consent to download contents of the third-party provider. The legal basis for the embedding processing is your consent if you have previously given your consent by clicking on the preview image. Please note that the embedding of some map services means that your data may be processed outside the EU or EEA. In some countries, there is a risk that authorities may access the data for security and surveillance purposes without informing you or allowing you to take legal action. Where we use providers in third countries without an adequate level of protection and you give your consent, the transfer to this third country is based on Art. 49 (1) (a) GDPR.

Google Fonts

For the uniform display of fonts, our website uses web fonts integrated locally via our server, which are provided by Google. When you call up a page, your browser loads the required web fonts into your browser cache in order to display texts and fonts correctly. A data transfer to Google does not take place with this form of integration of the web fonts. The data processing is carried out for the optimal presentation of the website. This purpose pursued by us also represents the legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR.

Storage Period

Unless otherwise specified, we will delete your personal data if they are no longer required for the relevant processing purposes and no legal retention obligations oppose deletion.

Use of service providers

We pass on your data to service providers within the framework of order processing pursuant to Art. 28 GDPR, who support us in the operation of our websites and the associated processes. Our service providers are strictly bound by instructions to us and are contractually obligated accordingly. These are service providers of the following categories:

  • Hosting service providers/cloud service providers for the operation of our servers
  • Service providers for ensuring IT security/IT support
  • Service providers for the delivery and performance measurement of our website
  • Email delivery service provider for sending emails in connection with our contractual services

The service providers process the data exclusively on our instructions and have been obligated to comply with the applicable data protection regulations. All processors have been carefully selected and are only given access to your data to the extent and for the period of time required to provide the services.

The servers of some service providers used by Bogen Magnetics are located in the United States and other countries outside the European Union. Companies in these countries are subject to data protection laws that do not generally protect personal data to the same extent as they do in European Union member states. If your data is processed in a country that does not have a recognized high level of data protection like the European Union, we ensure that the level of data protection is secured as far as possible by means of contractual regulations or other recognized instruments. With data recipients in third countries, we conclude the standard data protection clauses provided by the EU Commission for the processing of personal data in third countries in accordance with Art. 46 (2) (c) GDPR.

Is there an obligation to provide the data

The provision of your data is not required by law and is voluntary. However, the provision of your data is required for the use of certain services. This concerns, for example, the provision of your e-mail address in the contact or newsletter registration form, without which we cannot respond to your electronic contact request or send you a newsletter. We will inform you when you enter data if the provision is required for the respective service or function. These data are marked as mandatory fields. In the case of required data, failure to provide it will result in the relevant service or function not being provided. In the case of optional data, failure to provide it may mean that we are unable to provide our services in the same form and to the same extent as usual.
