Data protection at Demmel AG and Demmel GmbH & Co. KG
1. Basic principles
The protection of your personal sphere when processing personal data as well as the security of all business data are important to us and enshrined in our business processes. We observe data protection laws and take the protection of your personal data very seriously. That is why we only collect and process personal data to the extent which is technically necessary, e.g. for fulfilling contracts.
However, the Demmel AG website may contain links to third-party websites. This data protection declaration expressly does not cover these websites.
2. Data collection and processing
Every visit to our website and every access to files is automatically logged. This information is saved for internal, system-related and statistical purposes as well as to optimise contents and functions and to improve user-friendliness. The following is logged:
§ Browser type / version
§ Installed plug-ins
§ Operating system used
§ Requesting domain and IP address
§ Time, duration and sequence of pages visited
§ Individual pages and files terminated by the system
This automatically collected information is not personal data, and our employees cannot trace it to specific persons. We do not combine this data with other data sources. We use this information exclusively to analyse and optimise the attractiveness of the contents and functions provided on the website. So-called cookies and active components such as Java Script are used to gain this information. Cookies are small text files your browser saves to your computer, where they are temporarily stored. Cookies cannot cause any damage to your computer and do not contain viruses. Most of the cookies we use are session cookies which are automatically deleted when you leave the website.
3. Processing of personal data
Generally, we use the personal data you supply to answer your questions, process your orders or give you access to certain information or offers. This data is never used outside our company or sold or otherwise transferred to third parties without your express and at any time revocable permission. An exception to this rule is the transfer of your data to our service partners such as the forwarding and logistics company engaged to deliver your goods, in as far as this is unavoidable for performance of the contract. To handle payments, we transfer your payment data to the relevant credit institute.
In as far as we supply in advance – for example in the case of delivery against invoice – we are entitled in order to protect our justified interests to obtain information on your creditworthiness from the following companies:
4. Contact by e-mail or contact form
If you have questions of any kind contact us by e-mail or contact form, give us your consent for the purpose of establishing contact. This requires the entry of your company, cash on delivery and a valid e-mail address. This serves for the assignment of the request and the subsequent answering of the same. The specification of further data is optional. The information you provide will be stored for the purpose of processing the request and for possible follow-up questions. After completing the request you will automatically delete personal data.
5. Right to information and right of revocation
We protect your interests according to the legal provisions. You have the right at any time to information about your personal data that has been saved, its origin and its recipient, as well as the right to have such data blocked or deleted. This simply requires a written request from you. Furthermore, you have the right to revoke in writing any permission you have granted for the purpose of data processing. Send any requests for information about saved data and for revocation to:
Demmel AG: firstname.lastname@example.org
6. Data security
We always make every effort by taking all technical and organisational precautions to save your personal data in such a way that it is not accessible by third parties. However, it is not possible for us to guarantee complete data security in communication by email. Therefore we expressly recommend that you use conventional postage to send us any confidential information.
7. YouTube plugins
This website contains at least one plugin from YouTube, which belongs to Google Inc., located in San Bruno/California, USA. When you visit pages on our website that feature a YouTube plugin, a connection to a YouTube server is established. This informs the YouTube server which particular page of our website you have visited. Should you also be logged into your YouTube account, you enable YouTube to link your surfing activities directly to your personal profile. You can prevent this by first logging out of your account. You can find more information about how YouTube collects and uses your data in the data protection information at www.youtube.com.
