We are pleased about your visit to our website and your interest in our offers. We assume no liability for external links to external content, despite careful control of the content, as we have not initiated the transmission of this information, have not selected or changed the addressee of the transmitted information and the transmitted information ourselves.
The protection of your personal data during your visit to our Internet pages is an important concern of ours and takes place within the framework of the legal regulations, about which you can inform yourself, for example, under the link listed at the end of this data protection declaration. The use of our website is generally possible without providing personal data. If personal data (e.g. name, address or e-mail address) is collected on our pages, this is always on a voluntary basis. This data will not be passed on to third parties without your express consent. In this context, we point out that data transmission over the Internet (e.g. communication by e-mail) may be subject to security gaps. A complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.
In the following chapters, we will explain what information we collect during your visit to our website and how it is used:
a) When visiting the website: Every time a customer (or other visitor) accesses our website, the internet browser used on your device (computer, laptop, tablet, smartphone, etc.) automatically sends information to the server of our website. This information is temporarily stored in a so-called log file on the server side (web hosting provider).
We installed website tracking tools such as Google Analytics and Hubspot. Both collect information about how you interact with our website based on non-personal data of website usage, which helps us to improve instantly our offer.

At least the following information is required: first and last name, e-mail address, telephone and comment so that we know who sent the request and can answer it. Further information can be provided voluntarily. The data will be processed for the purpose of contacting us pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a DSGVO on the basis of your voluntary consent.

You can unsubscribe at any time, for example via a link at the end of a newsletter. Alternatively, you can send your unsubscription request at any time by e-mail (preferably with the subject: “Unsubscribe newsletter”).
A transfer of your data to third parties for purposes other than those listed below does not take place. We only pass on your data to third parties if:
Upon request, we will be pleased to inform you whether and which personal data relating to you are stored (Art. 15 DSGVO), in particular about the processing purposes, the category of personal data, the categories of recipients to whom your data have been or will be disclosed, the planned storage period, the existence of a right of correction, deletion, restriction of processing or objection, the existence of a right of appeal, the origin of your data, if not collected by us, and the existence of automated decision-making including profiling.
You also have the right to correct any incorrectly collected personal data or to complete incomplete data collected (Art. 16 GDPR). Furthermore, you have the right to demand that we restrict the processing of your data, provided that the legal conditions for doing so are met (Art. 18 GDPR). You have the right to receive the personal data concerning you in a structured, common and machine-readable format or to request the transmission to another person responsible (Art. 20 DSGVO). In addition, you have the so-called “right to be forgotten”, i.e. you can request us to delete your personal data if the legal requirements are met (Art. 17 DSGVO). Independently of this, your personal data is automatically deleted by us if the purpose of data collection no longer applies or if data processing has taken place illegally.
You also have the right to object to the processing of your personal data at any time, as long as a right of objection is provided for by law. In the event of an effective revocation, your personal data will also be automatically deleted by us (Art. 21 DSGVO). If you would like to make use of your right of revocation or objection, an e-mail to the e-mail address listed at the end of this data protection declaration is sufficient. In the event of breaches of data protection regulations, you have the option of lodging a complaint with a supervisory authority in accordance with Art. 77 DSGVO.
The data collected will be stored by us as long as necessary for the performance of the contracts we have entered into, or you have not exercised your right to cancellation or your right to transfer data to another company.
Social Links & Recommendations
On our website, you may have the option of submitting the respective page to selected social media platforms in order to recommend them within your individual group of friends (“friends”, social graph). After using the respective social icons (click on the Facebook icon, for example), you will be redirected to the respective platform in a new window, which may ask you to log in to your profile first. Thereupon, or during this or even before, only the page contents of the page to be recommended are analyzed exclusively by the platform operator and processed differently depending on the platform (title of the page, picture motif as icon, continuous text). We point out in the context that we have no influence on the data collection of the respective platform, which applies to the registered as well as not registered condition in the respective social media offer. When using the social media recommendations (buttons), you automatically and knowingly agree that the respective social media offers can collect and store data about your person and your usage behavior. We as the provider of the website offered here have no influence on this and therefore we hereby release ourselves from any liability with regard to the data collection and storage of third parties.
Web Statistics Collection (Web Statistics Tool)
Our website uses an internal statistics tool, which is installed on the same web hosting as Eldico’s website at www.eldico-scientific.com. The web hosting provider is Cyon, based in Basel, Switzerland. The statistics tool uses so-called “cookies” text files that are stored on your computer and that allow an analysis of the use of the website by you.

The collection of such web statistics is only intended to enable the provider to expand the present offer continuously and oriented to user behavior.
We take all necessary technical and organizational security measures to store your personal data so that it is not accessible to third parties or the public. If you would like to contact us by e-mail, we would like to point out that the confidentiality of the transmitted information can not be completely guaranteed with this communication method.
