The protection of your data is very important to ruhr:HUB GmbH (hereinafter: our company). At this point we would like to point out that we process personal data in accordance with data protection regulations, in particular the directive (EU) 2016/679 (General Data Protection Regulation; hereinafter: GDPR).
With this declaration, we would like to inform you about how exactly data is handled in our company in conjunction with the use of our website:
This data protection declaration is essentially based on the terms and definitions of the GDPR. In this regard, we would like to refer in particular to the definitions in Article 4 of the GDPR, which you can find freely accessible on the internet (e.g. here). We would like to briefly describe the terms that are most important from our point of view:
"Personal data" is all information that relates to an identified or identifiable natural person ("data subject"); A natural person who can be identified directly or indirectly and in particular by means of assignment to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or one or more special features that express the physical, physiological, genetic, psychological, economic, cultural or social identity of this natural person is regarded as being identifiable.
"Processing" refers to any process or series of processes carried out with or without the help of automated processes in connection with personal data such as the collection, recording, organisation, ordering, storage, adaptation or change, reading, querying, use, disclosure through transmission, distribution or any other form of provision, comparison or linking, restriction, deletion or destruction.
"Responsible party" is the natural or legal person, authority, institution or other body that alone or jointly with others decides on the purposes and means of processing personal data.
"Recipient" is a natural or legal person, authority, institution or other body to which personal data is disclosed, regardless of whether it is a third party or not. However, authorities that may receive personal data as part of a specific investigation according to Union law or the law of the member states are not considered recipients; the processing of this data by the named authorities is done in accordance with the applicable data protection regulations in line with the purposes of the processing.
"Consent" of the person concerned is any voluntary, informed and unambiguous statement of will for the particular case that is made in the form of a declaration or other unequivocal affirmative act with which the person concerned indicates that they agree to their personal data being processed.
The person responsible under data protection law is:
In accordance with the legal requirements, we have not appointed a data protection officer. If you have any questions about data protection, please contact our management using the contact details above.
a) Simple use of our website
The following data is recorded and stored by our server when you visit our website:
- Browser and operating system used,
- Your Internet provider
This data is required in order to be able to display our website to you at all, to improve the content of our website and to ensure its long-term functionality.
We cannot identify you as a person via this data alone. For this we would also require the data stored by third parties, in particular the data stored by your Internet provider. They know which specific internet connection was provided with the saved IP address at the time of the saved visit. If several people use an internet connection, it is not possible to determine the specific person via the IP address alone. Your internet provider is generally not authorised to provide us with the data it has on file. Only in the event of illegal behaviour associated with your IP address (e.g. attack on our systems via your IP address) would we possibly forward the stored data to the law enforcement authorities, who would then - with the addition of the data from your Internet provider - possibly be able to ascertain your identity. The data in the server log files is stored separately from all personal data provided by a data subject.
Insofar as the processing of personal data is apparent in these procedures, the legal basis for this is Article 6 Para. 1 Clause 1 lit. f of the GDPR.
Even cookies alone do not enable us to identify you, only to recognise your browser or the device you are using.
Insofar as the processing of personal data is apparent in these procedures, the legal basis for this is Article 6 Para. 1 Clause 1 lit. f of the GDPR.
c) Using our contact form
If you contact us using the contact form on our website, our company will collect and save the personal data you provide in the contact form.
This processing is for the purpose of further communication with you. The legal basis for processing is the consent you gave when you submitted the contact form (Article 6 Para. 1 Clause 1 lit. a) of the GDPR). You can revoke your consent to us at any time (e.g. by e-mail or letter). This also applies to the revocation of declarations of consent that were given to us before the GDPR came into force. Please note that the revocation will only take effect for the future. Data processing that took place before the revocation is not affected by your revocation.
The data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer required in order to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. For the personal data from the input mask of the contact form, this applies when the respective communication with you has ended. The communication is ended when it can be inferred from the circumstances that the matter in question has been finally clarified. If the establishment of contact is in connection with the conclusion of a contract, the law (tax code, Commercial Code etc.) may result in continued retention periods.
If you contact us via e-mail, we will process the personal data you provided in your e-mail / phone call for the purpose of further communication with you.
Art. 6 Para. 1 Clause 1 lit. f of the GDPR is the legal basis for the processing of data transferred in the course of sending an e-mail. If the aim of the contact is to conclude a contract, then an additional legal basis for the data processing is Art. 6 Para. 1 Clause 1 lit. b of the GDPR.
The data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer required in order to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. For the personal data sent by e-mail / phone, this applies when the respective communication with you has ended. The communication is ended when it can be inferred from the circumstances that the matter in question has been finally clarified. If the establishment of contact is in connection with the conclusion of a contract, the law (tax code, Commercial Code etc.) may result in continued retention periods.

Users can receive via e-mail information that is relevant to the website or registration, such as changes to the website scope or technical circumstances. The legal basis is the consent you gave when you registered (Article 6 Para. 1 Clause 1 lit. a) of the GDPR). If users have terminated their user account, their data will be deleted with respect to the user account, unless its retention is necessary for commercial or tax reasons. The legal basis for processing would then be Article 6 Para. 1 lit. c) of the GDPR. If an order/contract is concluded from using the registration/login on our website, the data you provide will be used to implement the contractual relationship. The legal basis is then Article 6 Para. 1 lit. b) of the GDPR.

These are saved on the basis of our and the user's legitimate interests, as protection against misuse and other unauthorised use.

a) Google Analytics
We have integrated the Google Analytics component (with anonymisation function) on our website. Google Analytics is a web analysis service. Web analysis is the gathering, collection and evaluation of data on the behaviour of visitors to websites. A web analysis service collects, among other things, data about the website from which the person concerned arrived on a website (so-called referrer), 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 to optimise a website and for the cost-benefit analysis of Internet advertising. The operating company of the Google Analytics component is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA. We use the suffix "_gat._anonymizeIp" for web analysis via Google Analytics. By means of this suffix, the IP address of the Internet connection of the person concerned is shortened and anonymised by Google if our Internet pages are accessed 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. Google Analytics places a cookie on the IT system of the person concerned. Read Clause 4 above to find out what cookies are. Placing the cookie enables Google to analyse the use of our website. Each time one of the individual pages of this website is called up, which is operated by the person responsible for processing and on which a Google Analytics component has been integrated, the Internet browser of the person concerned is automatically prompted by the respective Google Analytics component to send data to Google for the purpose of online analysis. As part of this technical process, Google gains knowledge of data such as the IP address of the person concerned, which Google uses to, among other things, track the origin of visitors and clicks and subsequently to enable commission accounting. The cookie is used to store personal information such as the access time, the location from which access was made and the frequency of visits to our website by the person concerned. Each time you visit our website, this personal data, including the IP address of the Internet connection used by the person concerned, is sent to Google in the United States of America. This personal data is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may pass on to third parties this personal data collected through the technical process.

b) Google Maps
This site uses the Google Maps map service via an API. The provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
To use the functions of Google Maps, it is necessary to save your IP address. This information is normally sent to a Google server in the USA and stored there. The provider of this website has no influence on the data transfer.
The use of Google Maps is intended to make our online range of services appealing in terms of their presentation, and to make the places we have indicated on the website easy to find. This represents a legitimate interest in accordance with Article 6 Para. 1 lit. f of the GDPR.

This website uses the services of MailChimp for sending newsletters. The provider is Rocket Science Group LLC, 675 Ponce De Leon Ave NE, Suite 5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA.
MailChimp is a service that can be used in order to, among other things, organise and analyse the sending of newsletters. If you enter data (e.g. an e-mail address) for the purpose of subscribing to the newsletter, it will be stored on MailChimp's servers in the USA. MailChimp holds certification in compliance with the “EU-US Privacy Shield”. The “Privacy Shield” is an agreement between the European Union (EU) and the USA that aims to ensure compliance with European data protection standards in the USA.
With the help of MailChimp, we can analyse our newsletter campaigns. When you open an e-mail sent with MailChimp, a file contained in the e-mail (known as a web beacon) connects to MailChimp's servers in the USA. In this way it can be determined whether a newsletter message has been opened and which links have been clicked. Technical information is also recorded (e.g. time of access, IP address, browser type and operating system). We do not use this data for personalised evaluations. It is used exclusively for the statistical analysis of newsletter campaigns. The results of these analyses can be used to better tailor future newsletters to the recipients' interests.
If you do not want an analysis by MailChimp, you need to unsubscribe from the newsletter. We provide a link for this in every newsletter message. You can also unsubscribe from the newsletter directly on the website.
The data processing is done on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a) of the GDPR). You can revoke your consent at any time by unsubscribing from the newsletter. The legality of the data processing operations already carried out remains unaffected by the revocation.
The data you have stored with us for the purpose of receiving the newsletter will be stored until you unsubscribe from the newsletter, and will be deleted from our servers, as well as from the MailChimp servers, after you unsubscribe from the newsletter. This does not affect data that we have stored for other purposes (e.g. e-mail addresses for the members' area).
