Data protection declaration for IMS CHIPS
1. Data protection at a glance
The following information provides a simple overview of what happens to your personal data when you visit our website. Personal data is data that identifies you personally. You will find detailed information on data protection in our data protection declaration listed below this text.
Data collection on our website
Who is responsible for data collection on this website?
The data processing on this website is carried out by the website operator. His contact information is detailed in the imprint of this website.
How do we collect your data?
Your data is collected when you provide it to us. This may be data that you enter in a contact form, for example. Other data is automatically collected by our IT systems when you visit the website. This is mainly technical data (e. g. internet browser, operating system or time of the page call). This data is collected automatically as soon as you enter our website.
What do we use your data for?
Part of the data is collected to ensure that the website is available to you without errors. Other data can be used to analyze your user behavior.
What rights do you have regarding your data?
You have the right to receive information free of charge at any time about the origin, recipient and purpose of your stored personal data. You can also demand to have your data corrected, blocked or deleted at any time. For this purpose, as well as for further questions regarding data protection, you can contact us at any time at the address given in the imprint. Furthermore, you have the right to complain to the responsible supervisory authority.
Also, you can demand restrictions regarding the processing of your personal data under certain circumstances. For details, please refer to the data protection declaration under “Right to limit processing”.
2. General and mandatory information
We would like to point out that data transmission over the Internet (e. g. communication via e-mail) can have security gaps. Complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.
Note regarding the responsible body
The body responsible for data processing on this website is:
Institut für Mikroelektronik Stuttgart IMS CHIPS
Stiftung des bürgerlichen Rechts
Phone: 0711 21855-0
Institutsleiter Professor Dr.-Ing. Joachim Burghartz
Responsible body is the natural or legal person who alone or jointly with others decides on the purposes and means of processing personal data (e.g. names, e-mail addresses, etc.).
Revocation of your consent to data processing
Many data processing operations are only possible with your expressed consent. You can revoke a previously given consent at any time. For this purpose, an informal notification by e-mail to us is sufficient. The legality of the data processing carried out up to the time of revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
Right to object to data collection in special cases and to direct advertising (Art. 21 GDPR)
If the data processing is carried out on the basis of Article 6 paragraph 1 letter e or f GDPR, you have the right to object to the processing of your personal data at any time for reasons arising from your particular situation; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions. You will find the respective legal basis on which processing is based in this Data Protection Declaration. If you object, we will no longer process your relevant personal data unless we can prove that there are compelling reasons for processing which are worthy of protection and which outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or unless the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims (objection according to Art. 21 Para. 1 GDPR).
Where your personal data is processed for the purpose of direct marketing, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning you for the purpose of such marketing, including profiling, insofar as it is related to such direct marketing.
If you object, your personal data will subsequently no longer be used for the purpose of direct advertising (objection according to Art. 21 para. 2 GDPR).
Right of appeal to the competent supervisory authority
In the event of infringements of the GDPR, those concerned have a right of appeal to a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of their habitual residence, place of work or the place where the alleged infringement was committed.
The right to appeal is without prejudice to other administrative or judicial remedies.
Right to data portability
You have the right to have data that we process automatically on the basis of your consent or in fulfilment of a contract handed over to you or to a third party in a common, machine-readable format. If you request the direct transfer of the data to another responsible person, this will only take place as far as it is technically feasible.
SSL or TLS encryption
This site uses SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or inquiries that you send to us as site operator. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from “http://” to “https://” and by the lock symbol in your browser line.
If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
Information, blocking, deletion and correction
Within the framework of the applicable legal provisions, you have the right to obtain information free of charge at any time about your stored personal data, its origin and recipients and the purpose of the data processing and, if applicable, a right to correct, block or delete this data. For this purpose, as well as for further questions regarding individual data, you can contact us at any time at the address given in the imprint.
Right to restrict processing
You have the right to request a restriction of the processing of your personal data. To do so, you can contact us at any time at the address given in the imprint. The right to restrict processing exists in the following cases:
- If you dispute the accuracy of your personal data stored with us, we usually need time to verify this. For the duration of the review, you have the right to demand the restriction of the processing of your personal data.
- If the processing of your personal data was/is unlawful, you may request the restriction of data processing instead of deletion.
- If we no longer need your personal data, but you need them to exercise, defend or assert legal claims, you have the right to demand the restriction of the processing of your personal data instead of deletion.
- If you have lodged an objection in accordance with Art. 21 Paragraph 1 GDPR, a balance must be struck between your interests and ours. As long as it has not yet been determined whose interests outweigh the interests of both parties, you have the right to demand that the processing of your personal data be restricted.
If you have restricted the processing of your personal data, these data – apart from their storage – may only be processed with your consent or for the assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of an important public interest of the European Union or a Member State.

4. Data collection on our website
Some internet pages use so-called cookies. Cookies do not damage your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies serve to make our offer more user-friendly, more effective and safer. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser.
Most of the cookies we use are so-called “session cookies”. They are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your end device until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognize your browser on your next visit.
You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and allow cookies only 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.
Cookies that are required to carry out the electronic communication process or to provide certain functions that you have requested (e.g. shopping basket function) are stored on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the storage of cookies for the technically error-free and optimized provision of his services. Insofar as other cookies (e. g. cookies to analyze your surfing behavior) are stored, these are treated separately in this data protection declaration.
Server log files
The provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:
- Browser type and browser version
- Operating system used
- Referrer URL
- Time of access
- Amount of data sent (in byte)
- Source and/or link that you used to link to our site
- IP address in use
- Website visited prior to our site
This data is not merged with other data Sources.
These data are recorded on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the technically error-free presentation and optimization of his website – for this purpose the server log files must be recorded.
If you send us inquiries via the contact form, your details from the inquiry form, including the contact data you provide there, will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the inquiry and in the event of follow-up questions. We will not pass on this data without your consent.
The processing of the data entered in the contact form is therefore exclusively based on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR). You can revoke this consent at any time. For this purpose, an informal notification by email to us is sufficient. For the purpose of revoking your consent to receive the newsletter, you will also find a corresponding link in each Newsletter.
The legality of the data processing procedures carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
The data entered by you in the contact form will remain with us until you request us to delete it, revoke your consent for storage or the purpose for which the data was stored ceases to apply (e. g. after your request has been processed). Mandatory legal provisions – in particular retention periods – remain unaffected.
Inquiry by email, telephone or fax
If you contact us by email, telephone or fax, your inquiry including all personal data (name, inquiry) will be stored and processed by us for the purpose of processing your request. We will not pass on this data without your consent.
The processing of this data is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR, insofar as your inquiry is connected with the fulfilment of a contract or is necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures. In all other cases, processing is based on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR) and/or on our legitimate interests (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR), as we have a legitimate interest in the effective processing of the inquiries addressed to us.
The data sent to us by you via contact requests will remain with us until you request us to delete it, revoke your consent for storage or the purpose for which the data was stored ceases to apply (e. g. after your request has been processed). Mandatory statutory provisions – in particular statutory retention periods – remain unaffected.
Data protection for applications and the application process
We collect, process and use personal data of applicants for the purpose of handling the application procedure. The processing can also take place electronically. This is particularly the case if an applicant submits relevant application documents to the data controller electronically, for example by email or via a web form on the website. If the data controller concludes an employment contract with an applicant, the transmitted data is stored for the purpose of processing the employment relationship in accordance with the statutory provisions. If the controller does not conclude an employment contract with the applicant, the application documents shall be automatically deleted at the latest six months after notification of the decision to reject the application, unless deletion is contrary to any other legitimate interests of the controller. Other legitimate interests in this sense include, for example, an obligation to provide evidence in proceedings under the General Equal Treatment Act (Allgemeines Gleichbehandlungsgesetz, AGG).
Processing of data (customer and contract data)
We collect, process and use personal data only to the extent that they are necessary for the establishment, content or modification of the legal relationship (inventory data). This is done on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR, which permits the processing of data for the fulfilment of a contract or pre-contractual measures. We collect, process and use personal data on the use of our internet pages (usage data) only to the extent necessary to enable the user to use the service or to invoice the user.
The collected customer data is deleted after completion of the order or termination of the business relationship. Legal retention periods remain unaffected.
5. Announcement of changes
We reserve the right to adapt this data protection declaration so that it always meets the current legal and statutory requirements or to implement changes to our services in the data protection declaration, e. g. when introducing new services. The new data protection declaration then applies to your next visit.
