2. Information on data processing for visitors to our website
We process personal data that are created when you visit our website, or which you provide in accordance with data protection laws.
You can always visit our website without providing personal data. Personal data are acquired solely for technical reasons when required for the use of our website or when you use certain features offered on our websites, such as contact forms. The personal data acquired are used to enable the desired features.
When you visit our website, our web servers save the following information as standard: the IP address that was assigned to you by your internet service provider, the website from which you arrived at our site, the web page you are visiting, possible downloads, the amount of data requested, search terms, and the date and time. These data are held for a period of three months. We use this information to identify and remedy possible security risks or website malfunctions. The legal basis for this data processing is Article 6(1)(f) GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation), according to which data processing is permissible for the protection of legitimate interests. Our legitimate interests are to ensure website functionality and ensure early detection and prevention of cyber attacks.
We also collect your data when you contact us using the contact form available on the website or in any other way. Unless specified otherwise in connection with the contact form, we will use this data only for the purpose of responding to your request and for technical administration. You may be asked to provide further personal data. These data are voluntary and will only be used by us to handle your inquiry. The legal basis for the processing of your data where use of the contact form is concerned is Article 6(1)(b) GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation), if the data are required for entering into or for the performance of a contract.
For the most part, these cookies enable you to use the features on the site, e.g. to retain form data (e.g. in a contact form) or to control what information is displayed (e.g. the cookie banner). Certain tools are required in order to operate our website. Use of these tools is based on our legitimate interests in accordance with Article 6(1)(f) GDPR, and allows us to personalize and streamline your website experience. In certain cases, these tools may also be necessary in order to fulfill a contract or to carry out pre-contractual activities, in which case we process your personal data in accordance with Article 6(1)(b) GDPR.
Other cookies enable analysis of website use for statistical purposes. They allow us to learn, for example, what content on our website is particularly relevant for our users and what devices are used to access the site. This allows us to make our website more interesting for our users. The information on the browsers and devices used allows us to adapt our site design to suit the most important browser types. We use these cookies only with your consent. Your consent is the legal basis for data processing in connection with analytics cookies (Article 6(1)(a) GDPR) and for the transfer of data to third countries (Article 49(1)(a) GDPR). You can revoke your consent by opening cookie settings and changing the relevant option. Access to and storage of information on devices are based on the laws implementing the ePrivacy Regulation for EU Member States.
We advise that under certain circumstances some of our websites have cookies that are not directly related to Eberspächer. If you visit a site with content that has been embedded by third parties (e.g. YouTube or Issuu), these third parties may have placed their own cookies. Eberspächer can neither influence the use of these cookies nor access them due to the way they function; they can only be accessed by those who have originally placed them there. Please refer to the websites of the third parties in question for more information.
4. Consent and your rights regarding privacy
Without your special consent, the personal data that you supply on Eberspächer’s website will only be used for the purpose provided (e.g. for preparing a bid), and for technical administration. Upon each data entry, we will inform you of its intended purpose and may ask for you for consent for its further use. In these cases, the legal basis for data processing is the consent pursuant to Article 6(1)(a) GDPR. Your consent is always voluntary, and you can revoke it at any time with effect for the future.
Furthermore, even if you consented, you may, at any time, object to your personal data being used for advertising or for market research and surveys, or request information about these stored data. You also have the option of having your personal data that you have stored with us corrected, blocked or erased at any time. To do this, please send a letter or email to the controller (I.). Please note that we exclude from erasure any data that we require for processing outstanding services or enforcing our rights and claims. This also applies to data we must keep in accordance with legal requirements. Such data are initially locked.
If the service providers named in this Statement process your data outside the European Union, we will ensure that these providers guarantee contractually or otherwise an equivalent level of data protection to that of the European Union. You can request a copy of this guarantee via the controller (I.).
You also have the right to request that we send you an electronic copy of any data that we process as part of a contract or based on your consent (this is called the right to data portability).
Finally, you have the right, at any time, on grounds relating to your particular situation, to object to the processing of your personal data based on Article 6(1)(e) GDPR (data processing in the public interest) or Article 6(1)(f) GDPR (data processing based on the balance of interests). If you object, we will only continue to process your personal data if we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for doing so that override your interests, rights and freedoms, or if the processing is used to assert, exercise or defend legal claims. If we process your personal data for the purpose of direct marketing for the protection of legitimate interests based on a balance of interests, you also have the right to object to this at any time without stating your reasons.
6. Contact for privacy
If you have any questions regarding the processing of your personal data, you can contact us at any time at datenschutz[at]eberspaecher.com with your requests for information, suggestions or complaints. We will take care of your concern immediately. You also have the right to file a complaint with your Data Protection Authority.
