Data Protection at eBlocker GmbH

As a company that is committed to your privacy, we are particularly committed to data protection and therefore not only strictly adhere to legal requirements, but have also set ourselves further high internal requirements. This includes, for example, that every employee is informed about the handling of personal data and that all service providers commit themselves to comply with EU data protection laws (EU-DSGVO).

The principle of data economy also applies to us. For example, we only collect data that is used directly for business development and is not stored “in stock”. Below you will find all the details of the individual data we collect and how we handle it.

This explanation is divided into two parts: In the first part you will learn in short form the basics of our handling of data collected on our website for easy and fast reading. This is followed by the legally required data protection declaration with further details on the processing of personal data.

We would be happy to answer any further questions about data protection and look forward to receiving your e-mail at en-privacy@eblocker.com.


Data processing on www.eBlocker.com

We collect and process only two types of personal data on our website:
1. Web Analysis Data
This data is technically collected when you visit our website. They are implicitly recorded every time you visit our website, provided you have not objected to the data collection. This data will not be passed on to third parties and will not be used for cross-website profiling. For more information, please refer to the “Web Analysis Data” section below.
2. Form Data Such as E-Mail Address, Name, Title, Address
This information is actively entered and collected by you through forms on our website, for example when you place an order or subscribe to our newsletter. You can find further information on this in the following data protection declaration.

Web Analysis Data

Unlike most websites you visit, we ask for your explicit permission to collect web analytics data about your visit history. By default, we assume your consent to the collection of data if you do not object. We use this data exclusively to identify problems on our website and to constantly improve our website for our users.
We use the web analytics system of the German provider “etracker GmbH” (www.etracker.com) for data collection and processing of web analysis data. We are relying on etracker because it is a web analytics company based in Germany, whose technology has been tested by the responsible supervisory authority and is constantly being further developed for better data protection. On the other hand, because etracker does not claim its own rights to the personal data collected on our websites and does not use them for other or its own purposes.

What Does That Mean To You?
All analysis data collected on our website belongs exclusively to us and is not linked to other data, e.g. when visiting other websites. Of course, after your consent to the data collection, you can also object at any time with one click. No data about your visit will be collected if you do not agree to the data collection in the first place. Your decision will be recorded in a so-called cookie (see section “Cookies” in the privacy policy below).

Your Benefits Of Web Analysis With Etracker
Only pseudonymous data is collected. In accordance with legal regulations, we will never combine the data collected with other personal data or attempt to process or use the data in any other way for further personal identification.
The data we collect belongs exclusively to us and will neither be processed by us nor by etracker for other purposes or enriched with further data. In particular, etracker does not use the data for advertising purposes and no cross-site user profiles are created.
All data is stored exclusively in Germany and is therefore subject to the strict European data protection laws and standards.
For further information on data protection, please refer to the following legal data protection declaration.

Furthermore, we may process personal data about you insofar as this is necessary to defend against legal claims asserted against us in the application process.

This means that if you do not provide us with any personal data in an application, we will not enter into an employment relationship with you.

There is no automated decision in individual cases within the meaning of Art. 22 DSGVO, i.e. the decision on your application is not based exclusively on automated processing.
