Sharing of your personal data
In order to provide the services of the website operator, your data may be passed on to third parties involved in order processing, such as business partners or IT service providers (in particular with regard to the technical provision of this website to Carl Zeiss AG, Carl-Zeiss-Strasse 22, 73447 Oberkochen, Germany, and, if applicable, to other companies of the Zeiss Group). With regard to the transfer of personal information to these third parties, we restrict ourselves to the information which is necessary for the provision of the service in question.

We will transfer your personal information only to third parties which have committed themselves to data protection and to the processing of your information in compliance with the applicable laws.
Where is your personal data processed?
Generally, your information is processed on servers located in Germany. If permitted, your information may also be processed in countries other than Germany. User information is processed in part by external companies. The forwarding of data within the Zeiss Group, insofar as consent was given for this, the transfer of data abroad and the processing of data via external partners are performed in accordance with the applicable data privacy protection laws. These activities are secured by means of the statutory regulations on data privacy protection, including data processing agreements, EU standard contractual clauses and international conventions.

Most of the cookies we use are "session cookies". These are automatically deleted after the end of your visit. Other cookies are stored on your end device until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognise your browser on your next visit.
You can configure your browser settings so that you are informed when cookies are placed and you can permit cookies only in individual cases, prohibit the acceptance of cookies in certain cases or in general, and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when the browser is closed. Disabling cookies may limit the functionality of this website.
Cookies required to execute electronic communication processes or to provide certain functions you wish to use (e.g. the shopping cart function) are stored in accordance with article 6, paragraph 1, letter f of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The website operator has a legitimate interest in the storage of cookies for technically error-free and optimised provision of its services. Insofar as other cookies (e.g. cookies used to analyse your surfing behaviour) are stored, these are explained separately in this data protection statement.
Server log files
The website provider automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which automatically forward your browser information to us. This information includes:
- the browser type and version
- the operating system used
- the referrer URL
- the host name of the accessing processor
- the time of the server inquiry
- your IP address.
These data are not merged with other data sources.
The legal basis for the data processing is article 6, paragraph 1, letter b of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which permits the processing of data for the fulfilment of a contract or pre-contractual measures, as well as the legitimate interest of the website operator in accordance with article 6, paragraph 1, letter f of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) (analysis, optimisation and efficient, economical operation and security of the online offering). For security reasons (e.g. for the resolution of abusive or fraudulent actions), server log files are stored for a maximum period of seven days and then deleted. Data that must be stored longer for evidentiary purposes are exempt from deletion until the final resolution of the respective incident.
When you send us inquiries via the contact form, your data from the inquiry form, including the contact data you provide therein, are stored for the purpose of processing your inquiry and to enable us to respond to any subsequent questions you may have. We do not share these data without your consent.
The processing of the data entered in the contact form is thus carried out exclusively on the basis of your consent (article 6, paragraph 1, letter a of the GDPR). You can revoke this consent at any time. An informal communication via e-mail to us will suffice for this purpose. The legality of the data processing procedures carried out until the revocation of consent shall remain unaffected by the revocation.
The data you entered in the contact form will remain stored with us until you ask us to delete them, revoke your consent to such storage or the purpose of the data storage no longer exists (e.g. after the processing of your inquiry has been completed). Compulsory statutory provisions - in particular retention periods - shall remain unaffected thereby.
This website uses functions of the web analytics service Google Analytics. The provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
Google Analytics uses "cookies". These are text files that are saved on your computer and enable you to analyse the use of your website. The information about your use of this website generated by the cookie is transmitted to a Google server in the USA, where it is saved.
The storage of Google Analytics cookies ensues on the legal basis of article 6, paragraph 1, letter f of the GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the analysis of user behaviour in order to optimise his website offering as well as his advertising.
On this website, we have activated the IP anonymisation function. This means that your IP address will be shortened by Google within the member states of the European Union or in other signatory states of the agreement on the European Economic Area before transmission to the United States. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the United States and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on the website activities, and to provide the website operator with other services relating to website use and Internet use. Google will not merge other data with the IP address transmitted by your browser within the scope of Google Analytics.
You can prevent the storage of cookies by configuring your browser settings accordingly. However, if you choose to do so, please note that you may not be able to utilise all functions of this website to the full extent. In addition, you can prevent Google's capture and processing of the data generated by the cookie related to your use of the website (including your IP address) by downloading and installing a browser plugin available via the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.

This website uses the "Demographic Characteristics" function of Google Analytics. This enables the generation of reports containing information about the age, gender and interests of the visitors to the website. These data come from interest-related advertising by Google and from visitor data of third-party providers. These data cannot be assigned to any specific persons. You can disable this function at any time via the display settings in your Google account or generally prohibit the collection of your data by Google Analytics as described in the section entitled "Objection to data collection".
