The data protection notice of X2E Aerospace Technologies GmbH is based on the defined terms of the General Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO). Our data protection notice should be easy to read and understand. To ensure this, we explain the terms used in advance:

3.1 Personal data

Personal data means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter “data subject”). An identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.

3.2 Person concerned

Data subject means any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data are processed by the controller.

3.3 Processing

Processing means any operation or set of operations which is performed upon personal data, whether or not by automatic means, such as collection, recording, organization, filing, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.

Restriction of processing is the marking of stored personal data with the aim of limiting their future processing.

3.5 Profiling

Profiling is any type of automated processing of personal data that consists of using such personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyze or predict aspects relating to that natural person’s job performance, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behavior, location or change of location.

3.6 Pseudonymisation

Pseudonymization is the processing of personal data in such a way that the personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without the use of additional information, provided that such additional information is kept separate and is subject to technical and organizational measures to ensure that the personal data is not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.

3.7 Controller or person responsible for processing

Controller or data controller is the natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which alone or jointly with others determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data. Where the purposes and means of such processing are determined by Union or Member State law, the controller or the specific criteria for its designation may be provided for under Union or Member State law.

3.8 Processors

Processor means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which processes personal data on behalf of the controller.

3.9 Receiver

However, authorities that may receive personal data in the context of a specific investigation mandate under Union or Member State law shall not be considered as recipients.

3.10 Third party

Third party means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body other than the data subject, the controller, the processor and the persons authorized to process the personal data under the direct responsibility of the controller or the processor.

3.11 Consent

Consent shall mean any freely given indication of the data subject’s wishes for the specific case in an informed and unambiguous manner in the form of a statement or any other unambiguous affirmative act by which the data subject indicates that he or she consents to the processing of personal data relating to him or her.

4 General information on data processing; legal bases, purposes of processing, duration of storage, objection and possibility of elimination

4.1 General information on the legal basis

Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for processing operations involving personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a EU General Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO) as the legal basis for the processing of personal data.

In the case of processing of personal data which is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Article 6(6) of the Data Protection Act shall apply. 1 lit. b DSGVO as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary for the performance of pre-contractual measures.

Insofar as the processing of personal data is necessary for the fulfilment of a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. c DSGVO as the legal basis.

In the event that vital interests of the data subject or of another natural person make it necessary to process personal data, Article 6(2) of the Data Protection Act shall apply. 1 lit. d DSGVO as the legal basis.

If the processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the first-mentioned interest, then Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO as the legal basis for the processing.

4.2 General information on data deletion and storage period

The personal data of the data subject shall be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of the storage ceases to apply. In addition, data may be stored if this has been provided for by the European or national legislator in Union regulations, laws or other provisions to which the controller is subject. Data will also be blocked or deleted if a storage period prescribed by the aforementioned standards expires, unless there is a need to continue storing the data for the conclusion or performance of a contract.

4.3 General information about processing on our website

Data protection, data security and protection of secrets have a high priority for us. The permanent protection of your personal data, your company data and your company secrets is particularly important to us.

In principle, you can visit our website without providing any personal information. However, if you make use of our company’s services via our website, this makes it necessary to provide your personal data. As a rule, we use the data provided by you and collected by the website and stored during use exclusively for our own purposes, namely for the implementation and provision of our website and the initiation, implementation and processing of the services/offers offered via the website (contract fulfillment) and do not pass them on to outside third parties, unless there is an officially ordered obligation to do so. In all other cases, we will obtain your separate consent.

Your personal data will be processed in accordance with the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation and in compliance with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to us. By means of this data protection notice, we would like to inform you about the type, scope and purpose of the personal data we process. Furthermore, we inform you about your rights by means of this data protection notice.

We have implemented technical and organizational measures to ensure an adequate level of protection for personal data processed through this website. Nevertheless, internet-based data transmissions can have security gaps, so that no absolute protection can be guaranteed.

5. Collection of general data and information

The website of the X2E Aerospace Technologies GmbH collects a series of general data and information every time a data subject or automated system calls up the website. This general data and information is stored in the server’s log files. The following data may be collected: (1) the 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 referrer), (4) the sub-websites that are accessed via an accessing system on our website, (5) the date and time of an access to the website, (6) an Internet protocol address (IP address), (7) the Internet service provider of the accessing system and (8) other similar data and information that serve to avert danger in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.

When using these general data and information, the X2E Aerospace Technologies GmbH does not draw any conclusions about the data subject. Rather, this information is needed to (1) correctly deliver the content of our website, (2) optimize the content of our website and the advertising for it, (3) ensure the long-term functionality of our information technology systems and the technology of our website, and (4) to provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for prosecution in the event of a cyber attack. The X2E Aerospace Technologies GmbH therefore collects anonymous data and information on one hand for statistical purposes and on the other hand for the purpose of increasing the data protection and data security of our enterprise, with the ultimate aim of ensuring an optimal level of protection for the personal data we process. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from any personal data provided by a data subject.

Our website uses cookies. Cookies are text files that are stored in the Internet browser or by the Internet browser on the user’s computer system. When a user accesses a website, a cookie may be stored on the user’s operating system. This cookie contains a characteristic string of characters that allows the browser to be uniquely identified when you return to the website.

We use cookies to make our website more user-friendly. Some elements of our website require that the calling browser can be identified even after a page change.

The following data is stored and transmitted in the cookies:

  • Language settings
  • Log-in information

We also use cookies on our website that allow us to analyse the surfing behaviour of users.

9. Use of analysis programs

9.1 Privacy policy on the use and application of Google Analytics (with anonymisation function)

We have integrated the Google Analytics component (with anonymisation function) on this website. Google Analytics is a web analysis service. Web analytics is the collection, aggregation and analysis of data about the behavior of visitors to websites. A web analysis service collects, among other things, data on which website a data subject came to a website from (so-called referrers), which sub-pages of the website were accessed or how often and for how long a sub-page was viewed. A web analysis is mainly used for the optimization of a website and for the cost-benefit analysis of internet advertising.

The operating company of the Google Analytics component is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

The controller uses the addition “_gat._anonymizeIp” for web analysis via Google Analytics. By means of this addition, the IP address of the Internet connection of the data subject is shortened and anonymized by Google if access to our website is from a member state of the European Union or from another state party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.

The purpose of the Google Analytics component is to analyse the flow of visitors to our website. Among other things, Google uses the data and information obtained to evaluate the use of our website, to compile online reports for us showing the activities on our website, and to provide other services related to the use of our website.

Google Analytics sets a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. What cookies are has already been explained above. By setting the cookie, Google is enabled to analyse the use of our website. By each call of one of the individual pages of this website, which is operated by the controller and on which a Google Analytics component has been integrated, the internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically caused by the respective Google Analytics component to transmit data to Google for the purpose of online analysis. As part of this technical process, Google obtains knowledge of personal data, such as the IP address of the data subject, which Google uses, among other things, to track the origin of visitors and clicks and subsequently enable commission calculations.

By means of the cookie, personal information, for example the access time, the place from which an access originated and the frequency of visits to our website by the person concerned, is stored. Each time you visit our website, this personal data, including the IP address of the internet connection used by the data subject, is transmitted to Google in the United States of America. This personal data is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may share this personal data collected through the technical process with third parties.

The data subject can prevent the setting of cookies by our website, as already described above, at any time by means of an appropriate setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent Google from setting a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. In addition, a cookie already set by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs.

Furthermore, the data subject has the option to object to the collection of data generated by Google Analytics and related to the use of this website as well as to the processing of this data by Google and to prevent such processing. For this purpose, the data subject must download and install a browser add-on at this link. This browser add-on tells Google Analytics via JavaScript that no data and information about website visits may be transmitted to Google Analytics. The installation of the browser add-on is considered by Google as an objection. If the information technology system of the data subject is deleted, formatted or reinstalled at a later point in time, the data subject must reinstall the browser add-on in order to deactivate Google Analytics. If the browser add-on is uninstalled or deactivated by the data subject or another person within his or her sphere of control, it is possible to reinstall or reactivate the browser add-on.

Further information and the applicable Google privacy policy can be found here.

9.2 Privacy policy on the use and application of Google Tag Manager

We use “Google Tag Manager” on our website, a service of Google Ireland Limited, Google Building Gordon House, Barrow St, Dublin 4, Ireland (hereinafter referred to as “Google”). Google Tag Manager allows us as marketers to manage website tags through one interface. The Google Tag Manager tool that implements the tags is a cookie-less domain and does not collect any personal data itself. Google Tag Manager takes care of triggering other tags, which in turn may collect data. Google Tag Manager does not access this data. If a deactivation has been made at the domain or cookie level, it will remain in place for all tracking tags implemented with Google Tag Manager.

You can find more information on data protection at the following website.

11.5 Right to information

If you have asserted the right to rectification, erasure or restriction of processing against the controller, the controller is obliged to notify all recipients to whom the personal data concerning you have been disclosed of this rectification or erasure of the data or restriction of processing, unless this proves impossible or involves a disproportionate effort.

You have the right to be informed of these recipients by the controller.

11.6 Right to data portability

You have the right to receive the personal data concerning you that you have provided to the controller in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable and interoperable format. You also have the right to transmit this data to another controller without hindrance from the controller to whom the personal data was provided, provided that

  • the processing is based on consent pursuant to. Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO or Art. 9 para. 2 lit. a DSGVO or on a contract pursuant to. Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO and
  • the processing is carried out with the aid of automated procedures.

In exercising this right, you also have the right to have the personal data concerning you transferred directly from one controller to another, insofar as this is technically feasible. Freedoms and rights of other persons must not be impaired by this.

The right to data portability shall not apply to processing of personal data necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller.

11.7 Right of objection

You have the right to object at any time, on grounds relating to your particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning you which is carried out on the basis of Article 6(1) of the Data Protection Act. 1 lit. e or f DSGVO; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions.

The controller shall no longer process the personal data concerning you unless it can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims.

If the personal data concerning you is processed for the purpose of direct marketing, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning you for the purpose of such marketing; this also applies to profiling, insofar as it is related to such direct marketing.

If you object to processing for direct marketing purposes, the personal data concerning you will no longer be processed for these purposes.

You have the possibility, in connection with the use of information society services, notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC, to exercise your right to object by means of automated procedures using technical specifications.

11.8 Right to revoke the declaration of consent under data protection law

You have the right to revoke your declaration of consent under data protection law at any time and without giving reasons. In the event of revocation, we will immediately delete your personal data and no longer process it. The revocation of the consent does not affect the lawfulness of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until the revocation.

11.9 Automated decision in individual cases including profiling

You have the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects concerning you or similarly significantly affects you. This shall not apply if the decision

  • is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between you and the controller,
  • is authorised by Union or Member State legislation to which the controller is subject and that legislation contains adequate measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests, or
  • with your express consent.

However, such decisions shall not be based on special categories of personal data pursuant to Article 9(2). 1 DSGVO, unless Art. 9 para. 2 lit. a or g applies and appropriate measures have been taken to protect your rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests.

With regard to the cases referred to in (1) and (3), the controller shall take reasonable steps to safeguard the rights and freedoms of, and the legitimate interests of, the data subject, including at least the right to obtain the intervention of a person from the controller, to express his or her point of view and to contest the decision.

11.10 Right to complain to a supervisory authority

Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of your residence, workplace or the place of the alleged infringement, if you consider that the processing of personal data concerning you infringes the GDPR.

The supervisory authority to which the complaint has been lodged shall inform the complainant of the status and outcome of the complaint, including the possibility of a judicial remedy under Article 78 GDPR.
