Data protection declaration


We, JENOPTIK AG, take the protection of your personal data very seriously and operate in strict compliance with the requirements of the Federal Data Protection Act. On this website, personal data is only collected to the extent required for the purposes set out below.

The following policy provides an overview of how we ensure data protection, which data are collected, and for what purpose.

Data Processing on this Website (Access Data)

Each time a JENOPTIK AG webpage is visited, access data are stored in a log file, the server log. The data record saved includes the following data:

  • date, time, access status (file found, not found etc.) and the request from your browser to the server,
  • the volume of data transferred, the website from which the page request originated (IP address),
  • the individual pages you visit on our website and
  • the product and version information of the browser used (user agent) and the preferred language used.

These data do not enable JENOPTIK AG to personally identify visitors. We will not merge these data with other data sources. The stored data are evaluated for statistical purposes only. No data are transmitted to third parties for commercial or non-commercial purposes. They are deleted following processing.

Collection and Processing of Personal Data

Wherever personal or business data (e-mail addresses, names, addresses, contact information, customer number) can be entered on our websites, users must provide prior express consent. The requirement for consent is clearly set out on the homepage. These data are treated confidentially and not transmitted to third parties. They are not in any way linked to access data.
Within the scope of personalized services offered by JENOPTIK AG, your registration data will be used, on condition of your consent, for the purpose of marketing and the demand-oriented design of electronic services.

Security of Your Personal Data

JENOPTIK AG uses technical and organisational security measures in order to protect your personal data that we collect against accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction, or against the access of unauthorized persons. Our security measures are constantly being improved according to the technological development.

Transmission of Your Data

Except for back office business purposes, JENOPTIK AG will not transmit your data to third parties. According to the principle of data economy, transmitted data are limited to the required minimum. Insofar as JENOPTIK AG is obliged legally or by court order to transmit your personal data, we will only disclose them to government institutions and authorities entitled to receive these data as specified by law.

Export and Processing of Data in Countries Outside the European Economic Area

The areas of interest you define may be stored and evaluated on the server of one of our subsidiaries or by contractors in countries outside the European Union. Should the country concerned not offer data protection to the acknowledged high level of the EU, we ensure the protection of your privacy and personal data in a recognized and appropriate way via contractual agreements (standard EU contractual clauses on data protection).
