The MATRIX GmbH is happy that you are visiting its website and having interest in the products. We are aware that the protection of your privacy while using our website is an important issue for you and we take the protection of your personal data very seriously. That’s why we want you to know when we save which data and how we use them. Thus, we want to inform you about our data protection measures with this data protection declaration.
The responsible body in terms of data protection laws, particularly the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), is the provider mentioned in the site notice.

PURPOSES OF DATA PROCESSING BY THE RESPONSIBLE BODY AND THIRD PARTIES
We process your personal data only for the purposes stated in the data protection declaration. A transfer of your personal data to third parties for purposes other than mentioned will not take place. We only pass on your personal data to third parties if:
- You have given your explicit consent,
- the processing is necessary for the handling of our contract with you,
- the processing is necessary for the fulfillment of legal obligations,
- the processing is necessary to protect legitimate interests and there is no reason to assume that you have an outweighing interest worthy of protection to not pass on your data.
When you access our website, general information is automatically recorded using cookies. This information (server log files) includes, for example, the type of web browser, the operating system in use, the domain name of your ISP, and the like. This is exclusively information that doesn’t allow any conclusions about your personal life.
This information is technically necessary to provide the website content requested by you correctly and is mandatory when using the internet. In particular, they are processed for the following purposes:
- Ensuring a trouble-free connection to the website,
- Ensuring a trouble-free use of the website,
- Analysis of the system security and stability as well as for further administrative purposes.
The processing of your personal data is based on our legitimate interest from the aforementioned data collection purposes. We don’t use your data to draw conclusions about you personally. Only the responsible bodies and, if necessary, the processor of the order will receive the data.
Anonymous information of this kind will, as the circumstances require, be statistically evaluated by us to optimize our website and the technology behind it.
If you send us inquiries via e-mail or the contact form, your details, including the contact data you’ve provided, will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the inquiry and in case of follow-up questions. We don’t pass this data on without your consent.
Therefore, the processing of the data you’ve provided is based exclusively on your consent (Article 6, Paragraph 1, GDPR). You can revoke this consent at any time. An informal e-mail to us is sufficient. The legality of the data processing operations carried out before the revocation remain unaffected by it.
The data you provide by e-mail or the contact form will remain with us until you ask us to delete them, revoke your consent to store them or the purpose for data storage no longer applies (e. g. after your inquiry has been fully processed). Mandatory legal provisions – especially the retention periods – remain unaffected.
USE OF GOOGLE ANALYTICS
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service by Google Inc. (hereafter: Google). Google Analytics employs so-called “cookies”, text files that are saved on your computer and that make it possible to analyze your use of the website. The information about your website use generated by the cookie is usually being transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, due to the activation of the IP anonymization on this website, your IP address will be shortened beforehand by Google within the member states of the European Union or other contract states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases, the full IP address is sent to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will make use of this information to evaluate your use of the page, to compile reports about the website activities, and to provide the website operator with further services connected to the website and the internet usage. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.
The purposes of the data processing are to evaluate the use of the website and the compilation of reports about activities on the website. Based on the use of the website and the internet, further related services should then be provided. The processing is based on the legitimate interest of the website operator.
You can prevent the storage of the cookies in the relevant setting of your browser software; however, we should point out that in this case you may not be able to use all of the functions of the website to their full extent. Furthermore, you can prevent Google from collecting the data generated by the cookie and relating to your use of the website (including your IP address) as well as the processing of this data by Google by downloading the browser plug-in available under the following link and installing it: browser add-on to deactivate Google Analytics.
Additionally or alternatively to the browser add-on, you can turn off the tracking by Google Analytics on our website by clicking on this link. By doing so, an opt-out cookie will be installed on your device. This will prevent the future collection by Google Analytics for this website and the browser as long as the cookie remains installed on your browser.
CHANGES TO OUR DATA PROTECTION POLICY
We reserve the right to adapt our data protection declaration so that it will always comply to the current legal requirements or to implement changes of our services in the data protection declaration, for example when we introduce a new service.
