The superpower of Web Components is that they are reusable. Build them once and use them in any project across your whole company. Biotope helps you build Web Components quickly, makes sure they work together and reconciles them into a single library. This in turn gives you a superpower: Lasting control of your entire UI.
the Web Components you need for your project. Not the architecture and tools around it. That's what Biotope is for - including polyfilling and templating for browsers that need them.
across several teams or projects on your component pool. Biotope's built-in quality gate and living styleguide ensure all standards are met - no matter who works on it.
your Web Components simultaneously from a single location. This guarantees a consistent appearance throughout all of your digital products. Conditional loading ensures you only ever tap the resources you need.
your components for any of your digital products. Biotope ensures they work in any framework: React, Angular, Vue - whichever you prefer. And the living styleguide shows how to use them.
and continuously evolve your library with every new version of a component. Thereby easily enforcing style and branding guidelines. Get rid of design debt and excessive maintenance costs.
No complicated registration process. No hidden costs. No more big technology decisions at the beginning of each project - Biotope works with any framework so you can build in the environment of your choice. And everyone else too. Build up your Web Component Library together.

Personal data is information about your identity. This includes information such as name, address, telephone number and e-mail address.
In general, you can visit our website without leaving any personal data behind, e.g. if you only want to inform yourself about our products and call up the corresponding pages. The accesses made to our homepage and each retrieval of a file stored on the homepage are logged. The storage serves internal system-related and statistical purposes. Logged: Browser type/version, operating system used, referrer URL (the previously visited page), host name of the accessing computer (IP address), time of server request. However, no personal data will be transmitted on your part and this information will be stored separately from any personal data transmitted. In addition, the IP addresses of the requesting computers are logged
In certain cases, however, we need your name and address as well as other information so that we can provide the desired services. This further personal data is only collected and stored if you provide this information voluntarily, for example as part of an inquiry, a registration, an application as an employee or potential supplier or when placing and processing orders
If you provide us with personal data, we will only use it to answer your inquiries (legal basis is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a, b or f DSGVO) and to process
projects (legal basis is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a, b or f DSGVO) with regard to advertising measures vis-à-vis you (legal basis is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a,

systems (legal basis here is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a, b or f DSGVO) and within the framework of statutory provisions (legal basis here is Art. 6 para. 1
lit. c DSGVO). We will collect, process and use the personal data you provide online only for the purposes disclosed to you. Your personal data will
only be passed on to third parties or otherwise transferred if this is necessary for the purpose of carrying out the activities mentioned here, e.g.
if service providers are called in or if you have given your prior consent to the transfer. These third parties may not use the data for other purposes.
Of course, we will respect your wishes if you do not wish to provide us with your personal data to support our customer relationship (in particular for direct marketing or market research purposes).
We only disclose personal data about customers or suppliers if we are required to do so by law (legal basis is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. c DSGVO), or if we are required to do so by a court decision (legal basis is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. c or f DSGVO) or if the disclosure is necessary to enforce or protect our General Terms and Conditions or other agreements (legal basis is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. c or f DSGVO). This applies mutatis mutandis to the processing of data.
The data will not be disclosed for commercial purposes.
Our employees and the service companies commissioned by us are obliged by us to secrecy and to comply with the provisions of the current data protection laws. The access to personal data by our employees is limited to those employees who need the respective data due to their professional tasks.

In particular, you may request information about the purposes of the processing, the category of personal data, the categories of recipients to whom your data has been or will be disclosed, the planned storage period, the existence of a right of rectification, deletion, limitation of processing or opposition, the existence of a right of appeal, the origin of your data if it has not been collected from us, as well as the existence of an automated decision making process including profiling and, if applicable, meaningful information on its details.
If your data should not be correct, you can of course also request a correction or completion of your data.
You may also request that your data be deleted unless processing is necessary to exercise your right to freedom of expression and information, to fulfil a legal obligation, for reasons of public interest or to assert, exercise or defend legal claims. We will comply with this request for deletion immediately, but must of course comply with any applicable legal storage regulations.
You may also demand that we restrict the processing of your personal data insofar as the accuracy of the data is disputed by you, the processing is unlawful, but you refuse to delete it and we no longer need the data, but you need it to assert, exercise or defend legal claims or you have lodged an objection against the processing pursuant to Art. 21 DSGVO.
If you have given your consent to the use of data, you can revoke it at any time with effect for the future.
You also have the right to data transfer. We will make your data available to you in a machine-readable format if you make a corresponding request.
If your personal data is processed on the basis of legitimate interests pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f DSGVO, you have the right to object to the processing of your personal data pursuant to Art. 21 DSGVO if there are reasons for doing so which arise from your particular situation or if the objection is directed against direct advertising. In the latter case, you have a general right of objection, which is implemented by us without stating a particular situation.
All requests for information, requests for information, requests for deletion, etc. or objections to data processing should be directed to the contact details of our data protection officer given below.
If you do not agree with our data processing, you also have the right to complain to the data protection supervisory authority responsible for us.
The responsible supervisory authority for data protection for us is:
Der Landesbeauftragte für den Datenschutz und die Informationsfreiheit Baden-Württemberg
Postfach 10 29 32
However, we would be pleased if you would talk to us first, so that we can clarify possible ambiguities or uncertainties together.
We maintain current technical measures to ensure data security, in particular to protect your personal data from the dangers of data transmission and from third parties gaining knowledge. These will be adapted to the current state of the art.
We reserve the right to change our security and data protection measures as far as this becomes necessary due to technical or legal developments or in case of justified legitimate interests. In these cases, we will also adapt our data protection information accordingly. Please therefore take note of the latest version of our data protection declaration.
Stored personal data will be deleted if you revoke your consent to their storage, if their knowledge is no longer required to fulfil the purpose for which they were stored, or if their storage is inadmissible for other legal reasons, unless legal storage regulations speak against deletion, then the data will be blocked instead of deleted.
There is no automated decision making, including profiling.
