Personal data processing and processing purposes
When you visit our website
You can visit the website www.elabprime.com without being required to disclose information about your identity. Only the information needed to establish a connection to our website will be automatically sent to our website’s server from your device’s browser.
Each time a user connects to our website, our website will collect a series of general pieces of data and information. This general data and information will be stored in our server’s log files. The following details may be collected:
(a) the browser types and versions used,
(b) the operating system of the device accessing our website,
(c) the webpage from which a system is accessing our website (known as the referrer),
(d) the subpages on our website being accessed by the system,
(e) the dates and times of when our website has been accessed,
(f) the Internet Protocol address (IP address),
(g) the internet service provider of the system accessing our website,
(h) any other similar pieces of data and information that can be used to protect our services in the event of an attack on our information technology systems.
We do not draw any conclusions about users when using this general data and information. Instead, we use this information to:
(a) ensure that the content on our website is displayed correctly,
(b) optimize our web content and the advertising for our website,
(c) ensure that our information technology systems and our website’s technology remain in full working order, and
(d) provide law-enforcement authorities with the information needed to prosecute offenders in the event of a cyberattack.
We therefore evaluate this anonymously collected data and information firstly for statistical purposes and secondly in order to provide better data protection and data security with the ultimate aim of ensuring an optimum level of protection for the personal data we process. The anonymous data saved in the server log files is stored separately from all the personal data provided by a data subject.
Data is deleted as soon as we no longer need it to fulfill the purpose for which it was collected. In the case of data collected to enable operation of the website, this deletion occurs when the user’s browsing session comes to an end.
IP addresses are processed for technical and administrative purposes so that we can establish a stable connection, keep our website secure and in full working order, and — if necessary — trace any unlawful attacks on our website.
The legal basis for processing IP addresses is Article 6 Paragraph 1 Sentence 1 (f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest results from the aforementioned security requirements and the necessity to provide a fully functional website.
In processing your IP address and other information in the log files, we are unable to draw any direct conclusions about your identity.

Distribution of our newsletter using Mailchimp
We send out our newsletter using Mailchimp, a newsletter distribution platform provided by the US-based Rocket Science Group, LLC, 675 Ponce De Leon Ave NE #5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA.
MailChimp is a service which organizes and analyzes the distribution of newsletters. If you provide data (e.g. your email address) to subscribe to our newsletter, it will be stored on MailChimp servers in the USA.
We use MailChimp to analyze our newsletter campaigns. When you open an email sent by MailChimp, a file included in the email (called a web beacon) connects to MailChimp’s servers in the United States. This allows us to determine if a newsletter message has been opened and which links you click on. In addition, technical information is collected (e.g. time of retrieval, IP address, browser type, and operating system). This information cannot be assigned to a specific recipient. It is used exclusively for the statistical analysis of our newsletter campaigns. The results of these analyses can be used to better tailor future newsletters to your interests.
If you do not want your usage of the newsletter to be analyzed by MailChimp, you will have to unsubscribe from the newsletter. For this purpose, we provide a link in every newsletter we send. You can also unsubscribe from the newsletter directly on the website.
The data provided when registering for the newsletter will be used to distribute the newsletter until you cancel your subscription when said data will be deleted from our servers and those of MailChimp. Data we have stored for other purposes (e.g. email addresses for the members area) remains unaffected.
Data processing is based on Art. 6 (1) (a) DSGVO. You may revoke your consent at any time by unsubscribing to the newsletter. The data processed before we receive your request may still be legally processed.
Transfer of personal data to third parties
Except for in the cases specified above (subscription to our newsletter), we only transfer your personal data to third parties if:
- you have given your express consent to this in accordance with Article 6 Paragraph 1 Sentence 1 (a) GDPR,
- this is necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are party in accordance with Article 6 Paragraph 1 Sentence 1 (b) GDPR,
- if we have a legal obligation to transfer the data in accordance with Article 6 Paragraph 1 Sentence 1 (c) GDPR.
Transfer of data to third countries
Insofar as we process data in a third country (i.e. outside of the European Union (EU), the European Economic Area (EEA) or the Swiss Confederation) or if this takes place as a result of us making use of third-party services or disclosing or transferring data to other individuals or companies, we ensure that we only do so in order to perform a contract or take steps prior to entering into a contract, on the basis of your consent, due to a legal obligation or on the basis of our legitimate interests. Subject to legal or contractual authorization, we only process data or arrange to have data processed in a third country when the legal requirements are met. This means, for example, that the processing takes place on the basis of special guarantees, such as the officially recognized determination that the level of data protection is equivalent to that which is provided in the EU (e.g. via the Privacy Shield for data processed in the USA), or in compliance with officially recognized special contractual obligations.
Purposes and Legal Basis for Data Processing
The legal basis for the processing of personal data is your consent pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR. You are then able to provide further personal data voluntarily or to permit third parties to transfer these to us and to store these with us for use in the context of using our services, in particular where you provide consent to the transfer of such personal data to third parties for the purpose of registering with third parties or the administration of your legal relationship to these third parties.
The basis for data processing is further Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR, which allows us the processing of data to fulfill a contract or for measures preliminary to a contract. In the context of our agreement with you, we also process personal data in order to show you use that has already taken place in the recent past and to make corresponding suggestions for further use. The legal basis for the processing of such Data is Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR, since such processing is necessary for the performance of the agreement entered into between you and us.
Finally, the basis for data processing in case of a justified interest is Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR. We have a legitimate interest in analyzing user behavior to optimize both its website and its advertising. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analyzing anonymous user behavior for promotional purposes. We also process personal data in your and our interest in order to ensure the integrity, trustworthiness and availability of the data processing systems, i.e. in particular the security and availability of your personal data. The legal basis for the processing of such personal data is Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR; our legitimate interest is the maintenance and the secure provision of our services.
Cookies are used on lots of websites and servers. Many cookies contain a unique identifier called a cookie ID. This consists of a string of characters which links webpages and servers to the specific web browser on which the cookie is stored. This enables the webpages and servers visited to differentiate between the data subject’s browser and other web browsers on which other cookies are stored. A specific web browser can be recognized and identified using the unique cookie ID.
Some of the cookies we use are deleted as soon as the browser session comes to an end, i.e. when the user closes their browser. These cookies are known as session cookies. Other cookies remain on the user’s device and enable us or our partner companies to recognize the user’s browser the next time the user visits our website. These cookies are known as persistent cookies.
Data subjects can, at any time, prevent our website from placing cookies on their device by changing the settings in their web browser, permanently objecting to the placement of cookies. Furthermore, cookies which have already been placed on a device can be deleted at any time via a web browser or other software program. This is possible in all commonly used web browsers. If the data subject disables the placement of cookies in their web browser, they may not be able to make full use of all our website’s features.
Web analysis and advertising
We have integrated Google Analytics into our website (with an anonymization function). Google Analytics is a web analytics service. Web analytics involves the collection, compilation and evaluation of data about user behavior on websites. Examples of the types of data collected by a web analytics service include the webpage from which a data subject has accessed the website in question (known as the referrer), the specific pages accessed on the website, and how often and for how long the user remains on specific pages. Web analytics is predominantly employed for website optimization purposes and for performing a cost-benefit analysis of internet advertising.
The operator of Google Analytics is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.
We use Google Analytics to analyze our website with the extension “_gat._anonymizeIp”. When our website is accessed from a Member State of the European Union or another state party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area, Google uses this extension to abbreviate and anonymize the IP address allocated to the data subject’s internet connection.
The purpose of using the Google Analytics service is to analyze the flow of visitors on our website. Google uses the data and information collected to analyze how our website is used, to compile online reports on our behalf about activities performed on our website and to provide other services concerning the use of our website.
Google Analytics places a cookie on the data subject’s information technology system. Please see above for a definition of cookies. The placement of this cookie enables Google to analyze how our website is used. Each time that a connection is made to one of the individual pages on this website, which is operated by us and into which Google Analytics has been integrated, Google Analytics will trigger the web browser on the data subject’s information technology system to transfer data to Google for the purpose of the online analysis. During this technical process, Google acquires knowledge of personal data, such as the data subject’s IP address, which, for example, allows Google to trace the origin of visitors and clicks and subsequently account for a commission.
The cookie is used to store personal information, such as the access time, the location from which the website was accessed and the frequency of visits to our website by the data subject. Each time our website is visited, this personal data, including the IP address of the data subject’s internet connection, is transferred to Google in the United States of America. This personal data is stored by Google in the USA. Google may pass the personal data collected through this technical process to third parties.
As described above, data subjects can, at any time, prevent our website from placing cookies on their device at any time by changing the settings in their web browser and permanently objecting to the placement of cookies. By adjusting their web browser in this way, data subjects can also prevent Google from placing a cookie on their information technology system. Furthermore, a cookie which has already been placed on a device by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time via the web browser or another software program.
As an alternative to installing the browser add-on or if you are using a mobile web browser, please click on the following link to place an opt-out cookie which will prevent Google Analytics from collecting data on this website in future. This opt-out cookie only works in this browser and for this domain. If you delete the cookies in this browser, you will need to click on the link again: Disable Google Analytics for this website.
Google AdWords and Google Conversion Tracking
This website uses Google AdWords. AdWords is an online advertising program from Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States (“Google”).
As part of Google AdWords, we use so-called conversion tracking. When you click on an ad served by Google, a conversion tracking cookie is set. Cookies are small text files that your internet browser stores on your computer. These cookies expire after 30 days and are not used for personal identification of the user. Should the user visit certain pages of the website and the cookie has not yet expired, Google and the website can tell that the user clicked on the ad and proceeded to that page.
Each Google AdWords advertiser has a different cookie. Thus, cookies cannot be tracked using the website of an AdWords advertiser. The information obtained using the conversion cookie is used to create conversion statistics for the AdWords advertisers who have opted for conversion tracking. Customers are told the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a conversion tracking tag page. However, advertisers do not obtain any information that can be used to personally identify users. If you do not want to participate in tracking, you can opt-out of this by easily disabling the Google Conversion Tracking cookie by changing your browser settings. In doing so, you will not be included in the conversion tracking statistics.
Conversion cookies are stored based on Art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analyzing user behavior to optimize both its website and its advertising.
This website uses the WordPress Stats tool to perform statistical analyses of visitor traffic. This service is provided by Automattic Inc., 60 29th Street # 343, San Francisco, CA 94110-4929, USA.
WordPress Stats cookies remain on your device until you delete them.
The storage of “WordPress Stats” cookies is based on Art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analyzing user behavior to optimize both its website and its advertising.
You can object to the collection and use of your data at any time with future effect by clicking on this link and setting an opt-out cookie in your browser: https://www.quantcast.com/opt-out/.
If you delete the cookies on your computer, you will have to set the opt-out cookie again.

The information is transmitted to a Vimeo server in the US, where it is stored.
If you are logged in to your Vimeo account, Vimeo allows you to associate your browsing behavior directly with your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your Vimeo account.
Google Web Fonts
For uniform representation of fonts, this page uses web fonts provided by Google. When you open a page, your browser loads the required web fonts into your browser cache to display texts and fonts correctly.
For this purpose your browser has to establish a direct connection to Google servers. Google thus becomes aware that our web page was accessed via your IP address. The use of Google Web fonts is done in the interest of a uniform and attractive presentation of our website. This constitutes a justified interest pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO.
If your browser does not support web fonts, a standard font is used by your computer.
