MORE INFORMATION ABOUT OUR WEBSITE

In addition, the cookies that have already been configured can be deleted at any time through an Internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in all popular browsers and is commonly called “clear cookies”. If the owner of the data disables the setting of cookies in the Internet browser used, not all of the features of our website may be fully usable.
2. DATA COLLECTION AND GENERAL INFORMATION
This website collects some general data and information when a data holder or an automated system accesses the website. These data and general information are stored in the log files of the server. The data collected can be composed by (1) browser types and versions used, (2) the operating system used by the system that pays for the access, (3) the website through which the system arrives to our website (called the referent), (4) the subsites, (5) the date and time you access the Internet website, (6) an Internet protocol address (IP address), (7) the Internet service provider system that accesses the website and (8) any other data and similar information that can be used in case of an attack to our information technology systems.
By using these data and general information, we don't take conclusions on the data subject. Instead, this information is necessary to (1) deliver the content of our website properly, (2) optimize the content of our website, as well as the advertisements, (3) ensure the long-term viability of our information technology systems and technology of the website, and (4) to provide the law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for the penal process in the case of a cyber-attack.

The anonymous data from the log files of the server are stored separately from any personal data provided by a data holder.
3. THE COLLECTION OF DATA FOR USE IN GOOGLE ANALYTICS
This website uses the system of collecting anonymous data for analysis and web usage statistics. Web analytics is the collection, aggregation, and analysis of data about the behavior of websites visitors. A web analytics service collects, inter alia, data about the website from which a person came from, which pages are viewed, or with what frequency and what duration was viewed the page. These analyses are used primarily to generate statistical reports to allow the optimization of a website and to perform a cost-benefit analysis of Internet advertising. The data relating to each user are stored for 50 months, after which it is permanently deleted.
The operator of the component of Google Analytics is Google, Inc., 1600 Anphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, United States of America.
Google Analytics places a cookie in the information technology system of the data holder. The definition of cookies is explained above. With the cookie setting, Google can analyse the use of our website. With each call to one of the individual pages of this Internet website, which is operated by the controller and in which a component of the Google Analytics has been integrated, the Internet browser on the data holder information technology system will automatically send data through a component of the Google Analytics for the purposes of online advertising and the settlement of commissions to Google. During this technical procedure, the company Google gains knowledge of personal information, such as the IP address of the data holder, which enables Google to, among other things, understand the origin of visitors and clicks and, subsequently, set commissions.
The cookie is used to store personal information, such as time of access, the location from which the access was made, and the frequency of visits to our website by the owner of the data. With each visit to our website, such personal data, including the IP address of the Internet access used by the data holder, 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 the personal data collected through this technical procedure to a third party.
The data holder may, as indicated above, prevent the setting of cookies on our website at any time by means of a corresponding adjustment of the web browser used and, therefore, deny permanently the setting of cookies. This adjustment to the browser will also prevent Google Analytics to set a cookie in the data holder information technology system. In addition, the cookies that are already used by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time through the web browser or other software programs.
More information and the provisions of applicable data protection at Google can be found at www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy and also in www.google.com/analytics/terms/us.html. Google Analytics is explained in www.google.com/analytics.
4. THE LEGAL BASIS FOR THE PROCESSING OF DATA
Article 6(1)(a) of RGPD serves as the legal basis for the processing operations, for which we obtain the consent for the purpose of specific treatment.
If the processing of personal data is necessary for the execution of a contract to which the data holder is a party – as is the case, for example, when the processing operations are necessary for the supply of goods, or to provide any other service – the treatment is effected on the basis of Article 6(1)(b) of the RGPD. The same applies to the processing operations necessary for the implementation of the measures on pre-contractual, for example in the case of queries about our products or services.
If our company is subject to a legal obligation by which the processing of personal data is required – such as to comply with tax obligations – the treatment is based on Article 6(1)(c) of the RGPD.
In rare cases, the treatment of personal data may be necessary to protect the vital interests of the data holder or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor were injured on our company and his name, age, health insurance data, or other vital information would be transmitted to a doctor, hospital, or other third party. In this case, the treatment would be based on Article 6(1)(d) of the RGPD.
Finally, the processing operations can be based on Article 6(1)(f) of the RGPD. This legal basis is used for processing operations which are not covered by any of the legal foundations mentioned above, if the processing is necessary for the legitimate interests held by our company or by a third party, except when those interests are outweighed by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject which require protection of personal data. Such treatment operations are particularly allowed because they were specifically mentioned by the European legislator, who considered that a legitimate interest might be assumed if the holder of the data is a controller client (Recital 47 Sentence 2 of the RGPD).
5. LEGITIMATE INTERESTS
Whenever our personal data treatment is based on Article 6(1)(f) of RGPD, our legitimate concern is the achievement of our business in favor of the well-being of all our employees and shareholders.
6. PERIOD DURING WHICH THE PERSONAL DATA WILL BE STORED
By default, the data collected on our website are stored for 50 days. However, the criteria used to determine the personal data storage period are their legal retention period. In these cases, after the expiration of that period, the corresponding data are routinely deleted, provided they are not necessary anymore for the compliance of the contract or the beginning of a contract.
7. POSSIBILITY OF CONTACT VIA THE WEBSITE
The Aquafer website contains information that enables a fast email contact with our company. If a data holder contacts Aquafer by e-mail or via a contact form, the personal data transmitted by the data holder are stored automatically. There is no transfer of personal data to third parties.
