We appreciate your interest in our company and our products and services.
By means of the following data protection information, we would like to inform you which personal data, to what extent and for what purpose is collected, processed and, if applicable, transmitted during your visit to our website. This applies equally to the services and offers available via the website (ICAROS App, ICAROS Shop, ICARACE).

Data protection principles
The protection of your privacy as well as the security of all business data is a very important concern for us, which we take into consideration in our business processes. Data protection and information security are part of our corporate policy.
We place great importance to the protection of your personal data and process them exclusively in accordance with the laws and regulations of the Federal Republic of Germany and superordinate European legislation, including the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Your personal data is processed to the extent described below for the purposes explained. This means that we only use your personal data if the data protection laws expressly permit this or if you have given us your prior explicit consent.
Icaros takes technical and organizational safety precautions to protect your personal data provided by us against manipulation, loss, destruction, or access by unauthorized persons. This includes that only authorized persons have access to your personal data, and this only to the extent that it is necessary within the scope of the purposes mentioned. Our security measures are regularly reviewed and constantly improved in line with technological developments. Our employees are obliged to maintain confidentiality.
The EU General Data Protection Regulation uses specific terms, which are defined in Article 4, e.g. personal data, processing, pseudonymisation, controllers, processors, recipients, third parties and consent.

General information on the processing of personal data
Scope of processing
As a matter of principle, we only process personal data to the extent that this is necessary to provide a functioning website and to use the content and services we offer. Personal data is solely processed based on currently applicable legal foundations.
Purposes of the processing
The purposes of the processing of personal data lie in conducting the business of the controller and all associated secondary business.
Legal basis for the processing
- The legal basis for processing personal data that is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is party is Article 6 (1)(b) GDPR. This also applies for processing operations that are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures.
- If the processing is necessary for the protection of the legitimate interests of our company or a third-party and such interests are not overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject, Article 6 (1)(f) GDPR forms the legal basis for the processing.
- When we obtain consent for processing operations for personal data from the data subject, Article 6 (1)(a) GDPR forms the legal basis.
- When the processing of personal data is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Article 6 (1)(c) GDPR forms the legal basis.
- If the processing of personal data is necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or of another natural person, Article 6 (1)(d) GDPR forms the legal basis.
Statutory or contractual duties to provide personal data
There may be statutory or contractual requirements for you to provide personal data under certain circumstances.
In particular, you may be obliged to provide personal data to us for the conclusion of contracts. Failure to provide the personal data could mean it is not possible to enter the contract with you.
Transfer of personal data
We only share your personal data with third parties if
- this is necessary for the execution of an existing contractual relationship with you.
- it is necessary for the protection of our legitimate interests or those of a third-party unless such interests are overridden by your (the data subject’s) interests or fundamental rights and freedoms requiring the protection of personal data.
- we are legally obliged to do so.
- it is necessary to enforce our claims and rights.
- we receive requests from official institutions (e.g. supervisory authorities or law enforcement authorities, when transfer is necessary for the prevention of threats to public security and order and the prosecution of criminal offences).
- if you have given us your consent to do so
However, in the case of such transfer, the personal data may only be used for the purpose concerned.
Involvement of external service providers
Like most other companies, we are not specialists in everything. We therefore use service providers to support us in some areas of our business activity, e.g.
- IT service providers to maintain our infrastructure
- IT developers in the further development of our applications
- IT service provider for business applications (ERP, CRM, Online-Shop)
- Service provider for specific applications used on our website
- Data centres for the secure operation of our services
- Agencies and printers to send e-mail or printed information
We have entered the legally required contracts on processing that specifically state what the service provider is allowed do with which data. Transfer to third parties is also excluded here. In these contracts, service providers are placed under obligation to comply with the applicable data protection regulations.
Data erasure and storage period
Personal data will be erased or made unavailable as soon as the purpose of storage ceases to apply. Storage can also be carried out if this is provided for by the European or national legislator in Union regulations, laws, or other rules to which the controller is subject. Data will also be blocked or erased if a storage period prescribed by the aforementioned standards lapses unless continued storage of the data is necessary.
