The collection of this data is based on legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. GDPR.

Data collection with data entry by the website visitor
If you visit our website and actively submit your data there, data collection and processing takes place analogously to a visit to the website without data entry. The information you provide is processed additionally.

This concerns the following data, if they were entered by the visitor:

 Processing duration
Unless otherwise stated in this privacy policy, we delete the data in accordance with Art. 17 GDPR or restrict processing in accordance with Art.18 GDPR after storage is no longer necessary for the processing purpose stated in each case.

Modification of the privacy information

Our web presence as well as our services are dynamic and we introduce new features or forms of collaboration from time to time. Therefore, new information may need to be collected. If we collect new personal information or significantly change how we use your information, we will modify this Privacy Policy accordingly, as necessary.

Cooperation with processors and other third parties

If we disclose data to other persons and/or companies, e.g. order processors or third parties, transmit it to them or otherwise grant them access to the data, this will only be done on the basis of a legal permission (e.g. if a transmission of the data pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 b GDPR is necessary for the fulfillment of a contract), you have consented pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR, a legal obligation provides for this pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c GDPR or on the basis of our legitimate interests pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR (e.g. when using agents, web hosts, etc.).

If we commission third parties with the processing of data on the basis of a so-called “order processing agreement”, the transfer is made on the basis of Art. 28 GDPR.

Passing on of contact data on this website to third parties

The disclosure of contact data published on this website, such as postal addresses, telephone and fax numbers or e-mail addresses to third parties for the purpose of sending unsolicited information is prohibited. We expressly reserve the right to take legal action against the senders of so-called spam mails in the event of violations of this prohibition.

Safety notes

We have taken all necessary technical and organizational security measures to protect your personal data from loss and misuse. For example, your data is stored in a secure operating environment that is not accessible to the public. In accordance with this privacy policy, access to your information is only possible by specifically authorized persons.

Our information system is a secured area. A firewall is installed to prevent access from other networks connected to the Internet. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific task are granted access to personally identifiable information. Our employees are trained in security and privacy practices.

Your personal data is encrypted during transmission by the so-called Secure Socket Layer technology (SSL). This means that communication between your computer and servers used by us takes place using a recognized encryption method if your browser supports SSL.

We would like to point out that data transmission on the Internet (e.g. communication by e-mail) can have security gaps. With regard to the transmission process, we have no means of influence, which means that the content may be viewed by third parties.
Despite our technical as well as organizational measures, we are not able to provide a guarantee that the data we collect or process will not be accessed, disclosed, altered or destroyed as a result of a breach of our security measures.

These include, among others:

  • E-mail marketing (newsletters and automated mailings, e.g. to provide downloads)
  • Contact management (e.g. user segmentation & CRM)

This information, as well as the content of our website, is stored on servers of our software partner HubSpot in Ireland.

B2: Use of the Userlike chat

MPR International GmbH uses a chat software of Userlike UG (limited liability), Probsteigasse 44-46, 50670 Köln. You can use the chat like a contact form to chat almost in real time with our employees. When starting the chat, the following personal data is collected:


  • Date and time of the call
  • Browser type/version
  • IP address
  • Operating system used
  • URL of the previously visited website
  • Amount of data sent
  • If specified: First name, last name, email

Depending on the course of the conversation with our employees, further personal data may arise in the chat, which is entered by you. The nature of this data depends largely on your request or the problem you describe to us. The purpose of processing all this data is to provide you with a quick and efficient way to contact us and thus improve our customer service.

All our employees have been and will be trained on the subject of data protection and taught how to handle customer data securely and confidentially. All of our employees are obligated to maintain confidentiality and have accordingly signed an addendum in their employee contracts to commit to maintaining confidentiality and observing data protection.

When you visit our website, the chat widget is loaded in the form of a JavaScript file from AWS Cloudfront. The chat widget technically represents the source code that runs on your computer and enables the chat.

In addition, MPR International GmbH stores the chat history for the duration of the legal retention periods. This serves the purpose of sparing you extensive explanations about the history of your inquiry under certain circumstances as well as for the constant quality control of our chat offer. The processing is therefore permitted pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR. If you do not wish this, you are welcome to inform us of this using the contact details listed below. Stored chats will then be deleted by us immediately.

The storage of chat data also serves the purpose of ensuring the security of our information technology systems. This is at the same time our legitimate interest, which is why the processing is permitted under Art. 6 (1) letter f GDPR. The legal basis for the processing of the data provided in the chat is also Art. 6 para. 1 books b and f, GDPR.

Userlike uses the Amazon and BunnyCDN cookies respectively as a content delivery network (CDN). More specifically, Amazon Web Services (AWS) and CDN serve to deliver content.

For more information about data protection at Userlike, please refer to the privacy policy of Userlike UG (limited liability).

B3: Protection of the data of visitors to our website

We use security protection measures such as HTTPS to protect your personal data. We regularly check our systems for possible vulnerabilities in order to ensure a level of protection that is appropriate to the risk – especially taking into account the state of the art.

Despite our measures, we are unable to provide a guarantee that data will not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed as a result of a breach of our security measures.


B4: Cookies

We use cookies on our website. These are small text files that are stored on your computer and improve the functionality of our website, for example, to automatically complete an entry you have made repeatedly in the text field. In addition, we can use cookies to evaluate the use of our website (see also sections 4. a. and 4.b.).

Most of the cookies we use are so-called “session cookies” and these are automatically deleted after the end of your visit. However, we do not assign these cookies to your personal data. Other cookies remain stored on your terminal device (whether mobile or not) until you delete the cookies. This allows us to recognize your browser on your next visit.

If you disable cookies, the functionality of our website may be limited.

Cookies that are required to carry out the electronic communication process or to provide certain functions requested by you (e.g. shopping cart function) are stored on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in storing cookies for the technically error-free and optimized provision of its services. Insofar as other cookies (e.g. cookies for analyzing your surfing behavior) are stored, these are treated separately in this privacy policy. “Third-party cookies” are cookies offered by providers other than the responsible party that operates the online offer (see 4. a). Our own cookies are called “first-party cookies”.

You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and only allow cookies in individual cases, exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or in general and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. If you deactivate cookies, the functionality of this website may be limited.

B5: Cookiebot

We use the consent management service Cookiebot, of Cybot A/S, Havnegade 39, 1058 Copenhagen, Denmark (Cybot). This enables us to obtain and manage the consent of website users for data processing. The processing is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation (Art. 7 para. 1 GDPR) to which we are subject (Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. c GDPR). For this purpose, the following data is processed with the help of cookies:

  • Your IP address (the last three digits will be set to ‘0’).
  • Date and time of consent
  • Browser information URL from which the consent was sent
  • An anonymous, random and encrypted key
  • Your consent status as an end user, to prove consent.

The key and consent status are stored for 12 months in the browser using the cookie “CookieConsent”. This preserves your cookie preference for subsequent page requests. With the help of the key, your consent can be proven and tracked.

If you enable the Service’s “Collective Consent” feature to enable consent for multiple websites through a single end-user consent, the Service will also store a separate, random, unique ID with your consent.

If all the following criteria are met, this key will be stored in the third-party cookie “CookieConsentBulkTicket” in your browser in encrypted form:

  • You enable the collective consent feature in the service configuration.
  • You allow third-party cookies via browser settings.
  • You have disabled “Do not track” via browser settings.
  • You accept all or at least certain types of cookies when you give consent.

The functionality of the website is not guaranteed without the processing.

Cybot is a recipient of your personal data and acts as a processor for us.

The processing takes place in the European Union. For more information on how to object to and opt-out of Cybot, please visit:

Your personal data will be deleted continuously after 12 months or immediately after the termination of the contract between us and Cybot. Please see our general explanations about deleting and disabling cookies above.

B6: Youtube Videos

We have integrated YouTube videos into our website to offer you engaging videos with information on certification topics directly on our website. The use of cookies or scripts is necessary to view these videos.

YouTube is an online video platform and subsidiary of Google Inc. The platform is operated by YouTube, LLC, located at 901 Cheny Ave. in San Bluno, CA 94066, USA. If you accept cookies on our site and call up a page on our website that contains an embedded YouTube video, your browser automatically establishes a connection to the servers of YouTube or Google, whereby (depending on the setting) various data are transmitted. Google Ireland Limited (located at Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland) is responsible for all data processing in the European region.

To display videos on our website, we have integrated a code provided by YouTube. When you accept cookies and access a web page that contains a YouTube video, YouTube creates at least one cookie that stores information about your IP address and our URL. This type of cookie may contain various data that, according to YouTube, is used to collect video statistics, improve the user experience, and prevent inappropriate behavior, among other things.

If you have consented to the processing and storage of your data by embedded YouTube elements by accepting our cookies, this consent is deemed to be the legal basis for data processing pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR. In general, your data will also be processed and stored on the basis of our legitimate interest under Art. 6 (1) GDPR to enable fast and effective communication with you, other customers and business partners. However, we only use the embedded YouTube elements if you have given us your consent. YouTube sets cookies in your browser to store data and processes data at various locations, including in the USA.

Since YouTube is a subsidiary of Google, there is a common privacy policy. To learn more about how your data is handled, we recommend that you read the privacy policy at


B7: Web analysis by Matomo (formerly PIWIK)

We use the open source software tool Matomo (formerly PIWIK) on our website for anonymized analysis of the surfing behavior of our users. A separate cookie (first-party cookies) is set.

The processing of users’ personal data enables us to analyze the surfing behavior of our users. The evaluation of the data obtained enables us to compile information about the use of the individual components of our website. This helps us to continuously improve our website and its user-friendliness. These purposes are also our legitimate interest in processing the data according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. By anonymizing the IP address, the interest of users in the protection of their personal data is sufficiently taken into account.

If individual pages of our website are accessed, the following data is stored:

(1) Two bytes of the IP address of the user’s calling system.

(2) The web page called up

(3) The website from which the user accessed the accessed website


(4) The subpages accessed from the accessed web page.

(5) The time spent on the web page

(6) The frequency with which the web page is accessed


The software runs exclusively on the servers of our website at Strato AG (see above). A storage of the personal data of the users only takes place there. The data is not passed on to third parties.

The legal basis for the processing of the users’ personal data is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.


The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer required for our recording purposes, usually after 12 months.
