Data protection notice
DEGELER GmbH & Co. KG takes the protection of personal data very seriously. This section of the website describes our data protection policy and the measures we have in place to protect the personal information that you provide us with.
In addition to complying with all legal data protection requirements, this section of the website clearly sets out how we store and use your personal information, so you can visit our site in the full knowledge that your privacy is protected.
The following information on data privacy lets you know when we save which data and how we use it – in a way, of course, which does not conflict with German jurisdiction in force. Data privacy in our company is based at the level of European data privacy and, in particular, on the current German Data Protection Law. To protect your personal data in matters of Internet usage, we orientate ourselves to the Tele-Media Law of the Federal Republic of Germany. Not only does our company endeavour to meet the statutory data privacy regulations but also attempts to make allowance for the recommendations of acknowledged voluntary self-control committees concerned with data privacy.
As a rule, our website can be used without any personal data being submitted. The collection of personal data (e.g. name, address or email addresses) on our Internet pages is always done, as far as possible, on a voluntary basis. Only with your express permission is this data passed on to third parties. We wish to point out that Internet data transmission (e.g. through emails) is not always a completely secure operation. It is simply not possible to thoroughly protect data from being accessed by third parties. The use of contact data published under the legal notice obligation by third parties for transmitting non-expressly required publicity and information material is herewith expressly refuted. The operators of the sites expressly reserve the right to initiate legal steps given non-solicited publicity information being sent, for instance, in spam mails.
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies” i.e. text files saved on your computer which allow your use of the website to be analysed. Information on your use of the website generated by the cookie is sent, as a rule, to a Google server in the USA, where it is stored. Should IP anonymity be activated on this website, then your Google IP address will, however, be abbreviated beforehand within the member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the accord on the European Economic Area.
Only in exceptional circumstances is the complete IP address transmitted to a Google server in the USA and abbreviated there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google uses this information to analyse your use of the website in order to compile reports about website activities and to furnish additional services associated with website and Internet usage for the website operator. The IP address which Google Analytics has sent from your browser is not combined with other Google data.
You can stop cookies being saved by applying the appropriate settings in your browser. We should point out that doing so might prevent you from using the full functionality of the site. Moreover, you can stop the data generated by the cookie and related to your site use (incl. your IP address) being sent to Google and the editing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link: tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.
If you are asked to provide personal details via our website, such as your name, address or telephone number, this will be subject to the following provisions: We will use your details for the purposes of marketing for DEGELER GmbH & Co. KG. Your details will not be passed to third parties. An exception to this is formed by service providers who carry out work under contract to DEGELER GmbH & Co. KG and third parties, such as those affiliated with DEGELER GmbH & Co. KG pursuant to Sections 15 ff. German Stock Corporation Act (AktG). In addition to the information that you provide us with, we also use information such as how you use the website to direct you as quickly as possible to information that could be of interest to you, as well as to continually improve our offering. You are legally entitled at any time to request and receive information on whether and what information we hold on you. Please submit your request in writing to the Data Protection Officer, who will provide you with this information. You can also ask the Data Protection Officer to amend or delete your data.
Your personal data will only be used for advertising purposes without your express consent within the strict limits provided by law. Without your express consent you will not be contacted for advertising purposes by email or telephone. Based on and within the scope of the applicable laws, we process and use the following personal data voluntarily provided by you to the degree required for purposes of advertising our own offers or for transmitting this data to HÖFLINGER for their advertising: your belonging to a certain category of persons (e.g. you being a customer or potential customer of HÖFLINGER), your name, title, academic status, profession, branch or business title, address (however not your telephone or email contact data) and year of birth. For advertising our own offers we may store and use in addition to these details any further data that has been legitimately collected by us. To the extent we transmit the data listed above to our affiliates for their advertising purposes, they are legally obliged to inform you that they have received the data from us (by remark to this effect in the advertising material or the like). In this case we store information on the origin and recipients of the data for a period of two years.
You may object to the use of your personal data for advertising purposes at any time by contacting us at the address given below.
External Service Providers
We are partially assisted in the collection, processing and use of personal data by selected service providers which, in accordance with their assignments, act strictly according to our instructions and which are validated by us before commencing their activities and subsequently monitored on a regular basis.
Information, correction, disabling and deletion of data
In keeping with § 34 and § 6b BDSG you have the unreserved right to obtain information – incurred at no extra cost – on your data we have saved and in keeping with § 35 BDSG the right to have inadmissible data deleted or disabled and/or the right to have incorrect data corrected. Unless something else is determined in this data privacy information, we will delete your personal data 3 months at the latest after the purpose behind saving has ceased to apply to the extent that we are not statutorily committed to a longer period of data storage. Please note that we have no influence on the extent to which your data is saved at Google. If requested, we would be more than prepared to inform you in writing as to whether we have saved personal information relating to yourself and which personal information this involves. If possible, we will adopt suitable steps to update or correct the data we have saved on you at short notice. In such instances, do contact our data privacy officer straight away.
The German Data Protection Law specifies in § 4g that particulars of data privacy relevance are to be made appropriately available to anyone. We have provided particulars on this in our Public Procedural Directory. Simply contact our data privacy officer if you wish to see these particulars.
DEGELER GmbH & Co. KG deploys technical and organisational security measures to protect the information you send to us from accidental or intentional change, loss, destruction or access by unauthorised persons. Our security measures are constantly being improved and updated in line with the latest developments in this area.
