1. Privacy overview
Data collection on this website
Who is responsible for data collection on this website?
How do we collect your data?
Some data is collected by you providing it to us. This could be data that you enter in a contact form, for example. Other data is collected automatically or with your consent by our IT systems when you visit the website. This is mainly technical data (e.g. internet browser, operating system, time the page was viewed). This data is collected automatically as soon as you access this website.
What do we use your data for?
Some data is collected to ensure fault-free provision of the website. Other data may be used to analyse your user behaviour.
If you use a demo access to ISARIA CONNECT, the storage of your data is necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, which take place at the request of the data subject. If you use ISARIA CONNECT on the basis of a usage licence acquired for a fee or free of charge or as part of a subscription, the processing is for the purpose of fulfilling a contract. In both of the above cases, the processing is based on Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR. If you wish to receive information from us by email, we will store your personal data on the basis of your consent; in this case, the legal basis is Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR.
What rights do you have regarding your data?
You always have the right to receive information free of charge about the origin, recipient(s) and purpose of your stored personal data. You also have the right to request that this data is corrected or erased. If you have given your consent to data processing, you can revoke this consent at any time with effect for the future. You also have the right to request that the processing of your personal data is restricted in certain circumstances. Furthermore, you have the right to lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority. You can contact us at any time with regard to this and other questions on the subject of privacy.

The hoster is used for the purpose of contract fulfilment vis-à-vis our potential and existing customers (Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR) and in the interest of a secure, fast and efficient provision of our online offering by a professional provider (Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR). Our hoster will only process your data to the extent that this is necessary for the fulfilment of its performance obligations and will follow our instructions with regard to this data.

3. General information and mandatory information
Information about the controller
The controller for this website is:
Fritzmeier Umwelttechnik GmbH & Co. KG
Dorfstrasse 7, 85653 Grosshelfendorf, Germany
Phone: +49 (0)8095 873 390
The controller is the natural or legal person who alone or jointly with others determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data (e.g. names, email addresses, etc.).
The Fritzmeier Group has appointed a Group Privacy Officer who performs the function of a privacy officer for the above-mentioned companies. You can reach the Group Privacy Officer of the Fritzmeier Group via the holding company Georg Fritzmeier GmbH & Co. KG, Forststrasse 2, 85653 Grosshelfendorf, Germany, telephone +49 (0)8095 60, email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you use ISARIA CONNECT, we will store your personal data for as long as you wish. If your usage licence, whether fee-based or free of charge, expires or is temporarily deactivated, we will normally continue to store your personal data for up to 24 months; during this time you can only read the data, but not change it. If you want to erase your personal data immediately, you can delete your user account in the app at any time. You can object to the processing of your data for marketing purposes at any time. The above regulations will not apply if we are obliged by law to store the data for a longer period of time.
Information on data transfer to the United States
Our website includes tools from companies based in the United States. When these tools are active, your personal data may be transferred to the US servers of the relevant companies. We would like to point out that the US is not a secure third country within the meaning of EU privacy law. US companies are obliged to hand over personal data to security authorities without you as a data subject being able to take legal action against this. We therefore cannot rule out the possibility of US authorities (e.g. intelligence services) processing, evaluating and permanently storing data located on US servers for surveillance purposes. We have no influence over these processing activities.
Withdrawal of your consent to data processing
Many data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. You can withdraw consent you have already given at any time. The legality of any data processing performed up to the withdrawal remains unaffected by the withdrawal.
Right to object to the collection of data in specific cases and to direct marketing (Art. 21 GDPR)
Right to lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority
In the event of breaches of the GDPR, data subjects have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of their habitual residence, their place of work, or the place of the alleged breach. The right of lodge a complaint is without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy.
Right to data portability
You have the right to have any data that we process automatically on the basis of your consent or in fulfilment of a contract handed over to you or to a third party in a commonly used and machine-readable format. If you request the direct transfer of the data to another controller, this will only be done where technically feasible.
SSL and TLS encryption
This site uses SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or enquiries that you send to us as the site operator. You can recognise an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from ‘http://’ to ‘https://’ and by the padlock symbol in your browser’s address line. If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
Provision of information, erasure and correction
Within the framework of the applicable legal provisions, you have the right at any time to receive information free of charge about your stored personal data, its origin and recipient(s) and the purpose of the data processing. If applicable, you also have the right to have this data corrected or erased. You can contact us at any time about this and any other questions you may have on the subject of personal data.
Right to restrict processing
You have the right to request that the processing of your personal data is restricted. You can contact us at any time in this regard. The right to restrict processing exists in the following cases:
- If you dispute the accuracy of your personal data held by us, we will usually
need time to verify this. For the duration of this review, you have the right to request that the processing of your personal data is restricted.
- If the processing of your personal data happened/is happening unlawfully, you can
request the restriction of data processing instead of erasure.
- If we no longer need your personal data, but you need it to exercise,
defend, or enforce legal claims, you have the right to
request restriction of the processing of your personal data instead of erasure.
- If you have lodged an objection under Art. 21(1) GDPR, a balance must be struck between
your interests and ours. Until it is determined whose interests
prevail, you have the right to request that the processing of your personal data is restricted.
If you have restricted the processing of your personal data, this data may – apart from being stored – only be processed with your consent, for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims, for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person, or for reasons of important public interest of the European Union or a Member State.
Objection to advertising emails
The use of contact data published in the obligatory legal notice for the purpose of sending advertising or information that has not been expressly requested is hereby prohibited. The operators of the website expressly reserve the right to take legal action in the event of any unsolicited promotional information, such as spam emails, being sent.
4. Data collection on this website
Server log files
The provider of this website automatically collects and saves information in server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us.
This information includes:
- Browser type and browser version
- Operating system used
- Referrer URL
- Host name of the computer accessing the site
- Time of the server request
- IP address
This data is not merged with other data sources. The collection of this data is based on Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the technically flawless presentation and optimisation of its website, and the server log files must be recorded for this purpose.
To enable you to use ISARIA CONNECT, it is also necessary to collect and process a certain amount of personal data. To register (set up a user account), the surname and first name of the main user, their valid email address and a valid ISARIA ID (e.g. the serial number of an ISARIA Precision Farming device) are required. If further sub-users are to be created for a main user, their names, first names and, if applicable, email addresses are required. In addition to this personal data, if you use ISARIA CONNECT, the farm name(s), the fields assigned to a farm, and the measurement data collected for these fields by the linked ISARIA system will also be stored and processed.
!!!!!Insert graphic here!!!!
If you send us enquiries via the contact form, the information you enter on the enquiry form, including the contact details you provide, will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the enquiry and in the event of follow-up enquiries. We will not share this data without your consent. This data is processed on the basis of Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR if your request is related to the fulfilment of a contract or is necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures. In all other cases, the processing is based on our legitimate interest in the effective handling of the enquiries made to us (Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR) or on your consent (Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR) if this has been requested. The data you enter in the contact form will be retained by us until you request us to erase it, withdraw your consent to store it, or the purpose for storing the data no longer applies (e.g. after we have completed processing your enquiry). Mandatory legal provisions – in particular retention periods – remain unaffected.
Enquiries by email, telephone, or fax
If you contact us by email, telephone or fax, your enquiry including all resulting personal data (name, enquiry) will be stored and processed by us for the purpose of dealing with your enquiry. We will not share this data without your consent. This data is processed on the basis of Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR if your request is related to the fulfilment of a contract or is necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures. In all other cases, the processing is based on our legitimate interest in the effective handling of the enquiries made to us (Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR) or on your consent (Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR) if this has been requested. The data you send to us via contact requests will be retained by us until you request us to erase it, withdraw your consent to store it, or the purpose for storing the data no longer applies (e.g. after we have completed processing your enquiry). Mandatory legal provisions – in particular statutory retention periods – remain unaffected.
5. Social media
Social media plug-ins with Shariff
Plug-ins from social media are used on this website (e.g. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, XING, LinkedIn, Tumblr). You can usually recognise the plug-ins by the respective social media logos. To ensure data protection on this website, we only use these plug-ins together with the ‘Shariff’ solution. This application prevents the plug-ins integrated on this website from transmitting data to the relevant provider when you first access the site. A direct connection to the provider’s server is only established when you activate the particular plug-in by clicking on the associated button (consent). As soon as you activate the plug-in, the provider in question is informed that you have visited this website with your IP address. If you are logged into your social media account (e.g. Facebook) at the same time, the relevant provider can assign your visit to this website to your user account. Activating the plug-in constitutes consent within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR. You can withdraw this consent at any time with effect for the future.
Facebook plug-ins (‘Like’ & ‘Share’ buttons)
Functions of the Instagram service are integrated on this website. These functions are offered by Facebook Ireland Limited, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland. If you are logged into your Instagram account, you can link the content of this website to your Instagram profile by clicking on the Instagram button. This allows Instagram to associate your visit to this website with your user account. We would like to point out that we, as the provider of the website, have no knowledge of the content of the transmitted data or its use by Instagram. The storage and analysis of this data is based on Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in achieving the greatest possible visibility on social media. If corresponding consent has been requested, processing is carried out exclusively on the basis of Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR. Consent can be withdrawn at any time. Data transfer to the United States is based on the Standard Contractual Clauses of the EU Commission.

The information you provide in the Calendly form, including the data you enter there, will be stored by us for the purpose of processing your enquiry and in the event of follow-up questions. We will retain this data until you request us to erase it, withdraw your consent to store it, or the purpose for storing the data no longer applies (e.g. appointment has taken place). Mandatory legal provisions – in particular retention periods – remain unaffected.
If you would like to receive the newsletter offered on the website, we will require an email address from you, together with information allowing us to verify that you are the owner of the email address provided and that you are happy to receive the newsletter. Further data is not collected or only collected on a voluntary basis. We will use this data exclusively for sending the requested information and will not share it with third parties. The processing of the data entered in the newsletter registration form is based exclusively on your consent (Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR). You can withdraw your consent to the storage of the data and email address and their use for sending the newsletter at any time, for example via the ‘unsubscribe’ link in the newsletter. The legality of any data processing already performed remains unaffected by the withdrawal of consent. The data you give us for the purpose of receiving the newsletter will be stored by us or the newsletter service provider until you unsubscribe from the newsletter and will be erased from the newsletter distribution list after you unsubscribe from the newsletter or after the purpose has ceased to exist. We reserve the right to erase or block email addresses from our newsletter distribution list at our own discretion within the scope of our legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR. After you have unsubscribed from the newsletter distribution list, your email address will be stored by us or the newsletter service provider in a blacklist if necessary, in order to prevent future mailings. The data from the blacklist is only used for this purpose and is not amalgamated with other data. This serves both your interest and our interest in complying with legal requirements when sending newsletters (legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR). Storage on the blacklist is not limited in time. You can object to the storage if your interests outweigh our legitimate interest.

Google Tag Manager
This website uses Google Tag Manager, a service that allows website tags to be managed via an interface. Google Tag Manager implements tags only. This means that no cookies are used and no personal data is recorded. Google Tag Manager triggers other tags that, in turn, may record data. However, Google Tag Manager does not access this data. If a deactivation has been made at domain or cookie level, it will remain in place for all tracking tags, to the extent that these are implemented with the Google Tag Manager.
Google Ads and Google conversion tracking
LinkedIn Insight Tag
Our website uses the ‘LinkedIn Insight Tag’ conversion tool from LinkedIn Ireland Unlimited Company. This tool creates a cookie in your web browser, which enables the collection of the following data, among others: IP address, device and browser properties and page events (e.g. page views). This data is encrypted, anonymised within seven days, and the anonymised data is erased within 90 days. LinkedIn does not share personal data with Fritzmeier Umwelttechnik, but provides anonymised reports on website audiences and display performance. LinkedIn also offers the possibility of retargeting via the Insight Tag. Fritzmeier Umwelttechnik can use this data to display targeted advertising outside its website without identifying you as a website visitor. You can find more information on data protection at LinkedIn in the LinkedIn privacy information. LinkedIn members can control the use of their personal data for advertising purposes in their account settings.
