Version: May 2018
“Doka” (Doka GmbH, Josef Umdasch Platz 1, 3300 Amstetten, Austria; responsible party pursuant to GDPR) takes the protection of personal data seriously. That is why Doka processes personal data independently pursuant to the requirements of the applicable legislation, especially pursuant to the Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and Council dated 27 April 2016 on the protection of natural persons when processing personal data in relation to the free movement of data (“GDPR”).
“Personal data” is all information that relates to an identified or identifiable natural person such as name, address, email address and IP address.
The aim of this statement is to inform the visitor (also referred to hereinafter as “you” or “your”) about the purpose and scope of processing personal data on the following “websites”, whereby the individual websites do not always use all the cookies or applications listed here and also have their own privacy statements:
Your data is generally not sent to third parties (processors) unless we are legally obligated to do so, it is necessary to forward data to meet our contractual obligations or you have expressly consented to your data being forwarded in advance.
If you use our websites solely for information purposes, i.e. if you do not register or transmit information another way, we will only collect personal data that is sent from your browser. If you visit our websites, we will collect the data listed below that is required by us for technical reasons to display the websites and to ensure their stability and security: IP address and IP location, date and time of the query, time zone difference to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT), content of the request (certain page), access status/HTTP status code, transferred data volume, website which the request comes from, operating system and its interface, language and version of the browser software, number, duration and time of visits, search engines and keywords that were used, browser type, screen size and operating system.
We also add links on our websites to other websites; this is only done for information purposes.

If you access a link, it is possible for the operator of these websites to collect data about you and to process this data pursuant to his privacy statement which may differ from our version.
From time to time, we may obtain information about you from third-party sources, such as public databases, social media platforms or third-party data providers. We take steps to ensure that such third parties are legally or contractually permitted to disclose such information to us.
In order to answer your queries and fulfil your orders and requests, we will process the following personal data: First name, surname, title, email address, password, date of birth, company, contact, company register number, UID number (tax ID number), telephone number, fax number, delivery address and invoice address, credit card details, account number.

Transient cookies are deleted automatically when you close your browser. These mainly include session cookies.

Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA („Facebook“)
Doka uses plug-ins of the social network Facebook. The Facebook plug-ins can be seen in the Facebook logo or the “Like button”. If these websites are visited from Facebook, a direct connection is established between the browser and the Facebook server via the plug-in. This enables Facebook to obtain the information that the websites were visited with the IP address. If the Facebook “Like button” is clicked on while being logged into a Facebook account, content on these websites may be linked to that Facebook profile. This means that Facebook can allocate the visit to websites to the user account. Doka is not informed of the content of the transmitted data and the use thereof by Facebook. Please refer to the Facebook privacy statement for more information on this.
If you do not want Facebook to allocate your visit to these websites to your Facebook user account, please log out of this account.
Bing Universal Event Tracking (UET)
Microsoft Corporation, One Microsoft Way, Redmond, WA 98052-6399, USA (“Microsoft”)
Doka uses the service Bing Universal Event Tracking (UET) of the Microsoft Corporation. The integration of the Bing tag makes it possible to collect and save user interactions on the pages and to thereby direct advertising to certain user groups in a systematic way. Pseudonymized user profiles are created at Microsoft from the collected and saved data. The data are sent to servers in the US and saved there for 180 days. Also the IP address and the Microsoft cookie “MUID“ are saved (with an expiration date of 13 months). The Microsoft cookie contains a GUID (Global Unique Identifier), i.e. an ID that can be assigned to the browser or the user himself (if he is logged into the Microsoft account). You will obtain more Information on the purpose and scope of the data collection in Google’s Data Protection Agreement, which you can find at: https://privacy.microsoft.com/de-de/privacystatement
You can manage and prevent the placement of Microsoft cookies by deactivating the cookies via the browser or the general cookie settings. Microsoft can track the user behaviour through several electronic devices with cross device tracking. As a result, Microsoft can offer personalised advertising. This behaviour can be deactivated at https://choice.microsoft.com/de-de/opt-out.
Doka uses “visitor action pixels” from Facebook on these websites. This enables the behaviour of users to be tracked after they have been forwarded to the websites of the provider by clicking on a Facebook advertisement. This process is used to assess the effectiveness of Facebook advertisements for statistical and market research purposes and can help to enhance future promotional measures. The data collected is anonymous for Doka and does not allow for any conclusions to be drawn about the user’s identity. However, the data from Facebook is stored and processed so that it is possible to connect to the relevant user profile and Facebook can use the data for its own advertising purposes in accordance with the Facebook data policy (https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy). The user makes it possible for Facebook and its partners to place advertisements on and outside of Facebook. Cookies can also be placed on the accessing device for these purposes. The following cookies are set on our websites: “_fpb”, “fr”, “tr”. Facebook uses these cookies to display a series of advertising products.
