5. Cookies
We use cookies for our website. Cookies are small text data concerning your visit to our website which are sent by our webserver to your browser and which are stored for later call-up from your computer.
We use only so-called session cookies (also called temporary cookies), i.e. those which are temporarily stored during your use of our internet pages. The purpose of these cookies is to be able to identify your computer during a visit when changing from one of our websites to another so that you continue to be identified and the end of your visit can be determined. The legal basis for this is Art.6 s.1f) GDPR. We have a legitimate interest in the storing of cookies to ensure that no technical prob-lems arise and in order to optimise the availability of our services.
These cookies are erased as soon as your browser session is completed.
Whether cookies are used and called-up can be determined by you through the set-up of your browser. You can completely deactivate the storing of cookies in your browser or limit such to specific websites or so configure your browser that you will be automatically informed as soon as a cookie is sent and you are requested to respond. In order to be able to use the full functionality of our website it is, however, necessary for technical reasons to permit the above mentioned session cookies to be used.
There is no collection or storage by us of personal data in cookies in this connection. We are not using any technology which could connect information collected by cookies with user data.

6. Google Analytics
It is important to us that our website can be presented in the best possible and attractive manner for our visitors. In this regard it is necessary that we know which parts of the website are well received.
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics also uses cookies, i.e. text data, which are stored in your computer and which allow for an analy-sis of your use of the website. The information provided by cookies concerning your use of this web-site are generally transferred to and stored on a server of Google in the United States. Through the IP anonymisation on this website your IP address will be abbreviated by Google within a member state of the European Union or in another signatory state to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transferred to the server of Google in the United States and abbreviated there. Google will use this information on our behalf in order to evaluate your use of the website and to prepare reports on website activities and to provide related services to us as the website operator connected with the use of the website and the internet.
The IP address transmitted under Google Analytics from your browser will not be connected with other data of Google.
You may prevent a storing of the cookies by way of an appropriate adjustment of your browser software; we would, however, advise you that in such case it is possible that not all the functions of the website can be used to the full extent.
You may also prevent the recording of data provided by cookies and related to your use of the website (incl. your IP address) by Google as well as the processing of the data by Google by download-ing and installing the browser plugin at the following link: [currently https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de].

7. Google AdWords
We use the online advertising programme "Google AdWords" on our website as well as related conversion tracking. Google Conversion Tracking is an analysis service of Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; "Google"). If you click on any adver-tisements placed by Google a cookie will be placed on your computer for conversion tracking. These cookies have a limited validity of 30 days but do not contain any information by which the user could be personally identified because there is an anonymisation of the IP address. If you visit certain pages of our website and the cookie has not yet expired, we and Google will detect that you have clicked on the advertisement and were directed to this page. Every Google Ad-Words customer receives a different cookie. Therefore, there is no possibility for cookies being able to be tracked from the websites of AdWords customers.
Information obtained with the help of conversion cookies serves to provide conversion statistics. Thereby, we are able to see the total number of visitors who have clicked on our advertisement and who have been redirected to the page with a conversion tracking tag. We do not, however, receive any information by which the user could be personally identified. Processing is on the basis of Art.6 (1)f GDPR and results from a legitimate interest in target-based advertisement and an analysis of the effect and efficiency of this advertising.
On the basis of Art.6 (1)f GDPR you have the right to object for reasons related to your particular situation at any time to the processing of personal data related to you.
If you do not want to participate in tracking, you can block this at any time if you deactivate the cookies of Google conversion tracking on your internet browser under the user set-up. We should advise you, however, that in such case it is possible that all the functions of this website will not work to the full extent. You will then also not be included in the conversion tracking sta-tistics.
In addition, you can deactivate the settings for advertising with Google for your personal advertising. You will find information on this under https://support.google.com/ads/answer/2662922?hl=de
Further, you can deactivate the use of cookies by third parties in that you call-up the deactivation page of the network advertising initiative under https://www.networkadvertising.org/choices/ and implement the opt-out information contained therein.
Further information as well as the data protection declaration of Google can be found at: https://www.google.de/policies/privacy/
8. LinkedIn Conversion Tracking and Insight Tag, Lead Gen Forms
We use the LinkedIn Insight Tag to track conversions, retarget website visitors, and unlock additional insights about members interacting with our LinkedIn adverts.
The LinkedIn Insight Tag enables the collection of metadata such as IP address information, timestamp, and events such as page views. All data is encrypted. The LinkedIn browser cookie is stored in a visitor's browser until they delete the cookie or the cookie expires (there’s a rolling six-month expiration from the last time the visitor’s browser loaded the Insight Tag). You can opt out of cookies from LinkedIn on your LinkedIn settings page and recommend you read their Cookie Policy for more information.
Furthermore, we use the "LinkedIn Lead Generation" service as a lead generation tool. Lead Gen Forms are advertising descriptions in suspense, the integration of contact forms in sponsored content. Lead Gen Forms are particularly important to us in the B2B area. With the use of these Lead Gen Forms services, we offer prospective customers a function with which they, as a user of a social network you use, can provide us with their email address or other user information. We use this functionality in order to be able to address interested parties more precisely. If you are a member of the LinkedIn platform, LinkedIn can assign the content and functions to the profiles of the users there.

9. Revocation and Objection Rights
We must advise you that you can revoke any consent given under data protection laws at any time with effect for the future.
Any profiles of usage developed – within the framework of this Data Protection Declaration – by us for advertising or market research purposes as well as for the development of our websites may also be revoked at any time.
For this purpose, please send a simple email to: info@invitek-molecular.com.

10. Data Security
We also use technical and organisational security measures to protect any personal data created or collected in particular, in regard to accidental or deliberate manipulation, loss, destruction and against any attack by unauthorised persons. Our security measures are continually improved to keep up with technological developments.
Ordering processes are encrypted using SSL technology in order to prevent access by unauthorised third parties.

f. Right to Lodge a Complaint with Supervisory Authority (Art.77 GDPR):
Under Art.77 GDPR you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority if you are of the opinion that the processing of your personal data is against the provisions of data protection law.
