We take the protection of the personal data of our users very seriously and strictly adhere to the rules of data protection laws (TMG, BDSG, etc.). Similarly, the collected data are protected by technical and organizational measures in our IT security policy to the best of our ability. A transfer of your data to third parties is generally not made. Exceptions to this apply only in the case of legal obligation or if you have expressly consented to such disclosure or have expressed a wish for this to be done.
This statement is intended to give you an overview of how we ensure this protection and what type of data is collected for what purpose.

II. Automatic data processing on this website
When you visit our website, information is automatically stored in our “server log files” that your browser transmits to us. These are:
• browser type / version
• used operating system
• referrer URL (the previously visited page)
• host name of the accessing computer (IP address)
• time of the server request
The legal basis for the temporary storage of the data is Article 6 § 1 lit. f DSGVO. The temporary storage of the IP address by the system is necessary to allow delivery of the website to the computer of the user. For these purposes, our legitimate interest lies in the data processing. The data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer necessary to achieve the purpose of its collection. The collection of the data for the provision of the website and the storage of the data in log files is essential for the operation of the website. There is consequently no contradiction on the part of the user.
III. Requiring Registration – Newsletter etc.
If you wish to use the (personalized or paid) offers and services offered on the website, we may need additional information from you in order to provide these services and for billing purposes.
This includes in particular your name, your (valid) e-mail address as well as further information (address, telephone number, etc.), which can be used by us, e.g. to verify that you are the owner of the e-mail address provided, or that the owner agrees to receive the services in question, in order to provide the services you require and to be able to properly account for them. Entering a valid e-mail address is required to prevent improper registrations, such as for newsletters. Accordingly, we use the so-called “double-opt-in procedure”, in which you receive an e-mail confirming your registration after entering your e-mail address on our web pages and clicking on an appropriate link to verify e-mail address.
Furthermore, you may be able to provide us with additional data (e.g. industry, occupational group, age, etc.) on the basis of the registration – on a voluntary basis – for example in corresponding form fields – beyond the data provided for the provision of the services. These data are used by us for the needs-based design of our offers, for product information for advertising and for customer care, as well as for the fulfillment of a contract with the person concerned or for the implementation of pre-contractual measures.
These data will only be provided to the NürnbergMesse GmbH, Messezentrum, 90471 Nuremberg, as a partner of the platform packaging-360.com, to be processed for the above-mentioned reasons.
The legal basis for the processing of the data is in the presence of the consent of the user Article 6 § 1 lit. a GDPR. If the registration serves the fulfillment of a contract of which the user is a party or the implementation of pre-contractual measures, then the legal basis for the processing of the data is Article 6 (1) lit. b DSGVO.
The data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer necessary to achieve the purpose of its collection. This is the case for the data collected for the performance of a contract or for the performance of pre-contractual measures when the data is no longer necessary for the performance of the contract. Even after the conclusion of the contract, there may be a need to store personal data of the contracting party in order to comply with contractual or legal obligations. As a user, you have the option of canceling the registration at any time. If the data are necessary for the fulfillment of a contract or for the execution of pre-contractual measures, a premature deletion of the data is only possible, as far as contractual or legal obligations do not preclude a deletion.

We make whitepapers available for download on this website. The provision of a whitepaper is connected with a high economic expenditure. Therefore, you can only obtain a whitepaper in return for providing various personal data combined with an advertising consent. Please refer to the scope of the declaration of consent that you give when you receive the white paper for the specific types of data to be provided.
In this context we process your data for advertising purposes. The legal basis for the processing of your data is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO. The provision of your data is neither legally nor contractually prescribed. Failure to do so means that you will not be able to download the whitepaper.

VI. Social Networks
For the following list of social networks, the processing of personal data of the users on the basis of our legitimate interests in an effective information of users and communication with users in accordance with Article 6 § 1 lit. f. DSGVO. If the users are asked by the respective providers for consent to the data processing (i.e. they declare their agreement, for example, by ticking a check box or confirming a button), the legal basis of the processing is Artcle 6 §1 lit a., Article 7 GDPR.
On this website, plug-ins of the social network Facebook are integrated which are operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA. The Facebook plug-ins are recognizable, among other things, by the Facebook logo or the “Like” button. An overview of the Facebook plug-ins can be found here: developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/
Social plug-ins are buttons, boxes, and messages that the site uses to allow site visitors to present site content to other Facebook users.
By integrating the plugins, Facebook receives the information that a user has accessed the corresponding page of the online offer. If the user is logged in to Facebook, Facebook can assign the visit to their Facebook account. If users interact with the plug-ins, for example by pressing the Like button or leaving a comment, the information is transmitted from your device directly to Facebook and stored there.
If you are logged in to Facebook and visit a website with the “Like” button, your browser sends information about your visit to Facebook. The browser sends information regarding the request to load Facebook content on this page. The data Facebook receives will include your user ID, website visited, date and time, and other browser-related information. Facebook records some of this information to provide the user with a personalized experience on this website and to improve their own products.
Other settings and objections on the use of data for promotional purposes are possible within the Facebook profile settings: https://www.facebook.com/settings?tab=ads or through the US-American site http://www.aboutads.info/choices/ or the EU page http://www.youronlinechoices.com/. The settings are platform independent, i.e. they are adopted for all devices, such as desktop computers or mobile devices.
If you are unsubscribed from Facebook or do not have a Facebook account and visit a website with the “Like” button or another social plugin, your browser sends less information to Facebook. If you are not logged in to Facebook, fewer cookies will be set than after logging in to Facebook. Like other websites, Facebook stores information about the websites you visit, date and time, and other browser-related information. Facebook records this information to improve its own products.
This offer uses the buttons of the Twitter service. These buttons are provided by Twitter Inc., 795 Folsom St., Suite 600, San Francisco, CA 94107, USA. They are recognizable by terms such as “Twitter” or “episode”, associated with a stylized blue bird.
With the help of the buttons it is possible to share a post or page of this offer on Twitter or to follow the provider on Twitter. When a user calls up a web page of this website containing such a button, its browser establishes a direct connection with the servers of Twitter. The content of the Twitter buttons is transmitted by Twitter directly to the user’s browser.
