Purpose and scope of data processing
Every visit to our website is recorded. The following data - transferred by your web browser - is collected in each case:
- IP address from which the data is accessed
- Files accessed

- Browser language settings
- Operating system used
- Referrer URL (previously visited page)
The legal basis for this collection is Art. 6 Para. 1 f) GDPR (legitimate interest). We are unable to offer you the option of objecting to this collection since the server log is essential both for ensuring the availability of this website and in situations where an attack is made on the website.
The data from the server log is deleted automatically after 14 days.
When you subscribe to our newsletter, this is done on the legal assumption that you have given us your consent for this (Art. 6 Para.1 a) GDPR). You may at any time object to receiving any further newsletters by clicking on the “unsubscribe“ link indicated at the end of each newsletter or by sending us an informal email with the heading “Cancel newsletter subscription” to email@example.com.
When you create a user account with us using the form provided on the website, this is done on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 Para. 1 a)). The data provided using the registration form will be used by us exclusively for the purposes of authenticating technical download information, operating instructions and spare parts lists. These data will not be used for any additional purposes by FLUX-Geräte GmbH or third parties at any time.
Our website homepage incorporates a like button for the social network Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland. The incorporation of this like button means that data such as your IP address is also transmitted to Facebook. Facebook does not clearly and conclusively state how it uses the transmitted data for its own purposes and we do not know how it does this. For these reasons, this feature will only be offered if you have given us your consent in the consent banner when visiting our website (Art. 6 Para. 1 a)).
This website incorporates videos from the YouTube website. The website operator is Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland. Each time you visit one of our webpages incorporating YouTube a connection is established with the YouTube servers. When you do this the YouTube server is told which of our pages you have visited.
YouTube may also store various cookies on your device. These cookies allow YouTube to collect information regarding website users. This information is also used to collect video statistics, improve usability and prevent fraud. The cookies remain on your device until you delete them.
If you are logged into your YouTube account you are allowing YouTube to link your surfing behaviour directly with your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account. YouTube is used in the interests of maintaining an appealing presentation of our website. This constitutes a legitimate interest as defined in Art. 6 Para. 1 f GDPR. If appropriate consent has been obtained, processing will be performed exclusively on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1a GDPR; consent may be revoked at any time.
