I. Data protection
1. 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). The legal basis for the processing of data in connection with technical cookies is Art. 6, Para. 1 (b) GDPR. It is not possible to disable technical cookies.
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 end 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 end devices used allows us to adapt our site design to suit the most important browser types. We use these cookies only with your consent. The legal basis for the processing of data in connection with analysis cookies is your consent (Art. 6, Para. 1 (a) GDPR). You can withdraw your consent by visiting cookie settings and changing the relevant setting.
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.

Google Tag Manager
We use Google Tag Manager, a service that is offered for users in the European Economic Area, Switzerland and Liechtenstein by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland ("Google") and for all other users by Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Tag Manager helps us to manage the tools and external services that we use on our websites and allows us to use what are known as tags. A tag is a code element that is inserted into the website source code and can, for example, control which site elements or service primitives (operations) and tools are enabled and loaded and in what order. Google Tag Manager itself does not collect any personal data. The tool can be used to trigger other tags that may themselves collect data and that are further outlined in these guidelines on data protection. You can read more about Tag Manager in the information provided by Google. Tag Manager is required for technical reasons.
We use a tool provided by Usercentrics GmbH, Sonnenstrasse 23, 80331 Munich, Germany ("Usercentrics"), to display the cookie banner and to save, manage and document your cookie preferences. A cookie is used in conjunction with Usercentrics to save your cookie settings preference for the Eberspächer website. The Usercentrics tool is required for technical reasons.
Google will use the information obtained through the cookies on our behalf to evaluate the use of the website, to compile reports about website activity, and to provide us further services associated with use of the website and the Internet. You can also find further information on this in the Google Analytics data protection statement.
The cookies used in connection with Google Analytics are analytics cookies. We use these cookies only with your consent. You can disable Google's web analytics at any time by visiting cookie settings and changing the relevant setting. In addition to this, you also have the following options:
- You can set your browser to block cookies from Google Analytics.
- You can customize your advertising settings on Google.
- You can install the deactivation plug-in provided by Google in your Firefox, Internet Explorer or Chrome browsers using the following link from Google (this option does not work on mobile devices): Link to browser plug-in
Google Ads conversion tracking
We also use Google Ads Conversion Tracking, an analytics service from Google. Google Ads places a cookie on your computer ("conversion cookie") if you accessed our website via a Google ad. These cookies expire after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. If you visit specific sites of ours when the cookie has not yet expired, both Google and Eberspächer can recognize that a user has clicked on the ad and was thus redirected to our site. Every Ads customer receives a different cookie. This means that cookies cannot be monitored via the websites of Ads customers. The information retrieved by conversion cookies is used to create conversion statistics for Ads customers who have opted for conversion tracking. Ads customers receive data on the total number of users who have clicked on their ad and been redirected to a site with a conversion tracking tag. However, these customers will not receive any information that can identify the user.
Through targeted advertising on Google's sites and those of its partner network, we use Google's remarketing technology to reconnect with users who have already visited our website and are interested in our offers. Cookies are used to display the ads. User behavior on the website is analyzed with cookies, and the resulting analysis is used for targeted product recommendations and interest-based advertising.
For marketing purposes, we use Facebook's conversion and retargeting tags (also known as the Facebook pixel), a service provided by Facebook Inc., 1601 Willow Road, Menlo Park, California 94025, USA ("Facebook"). We use the Facebook pixel to assess the effectiveness of Facebook advertising (conversion) and to show you targeted advertising on the basis of your interest in our products (retargeting).
For this purpose, Facebook processes data that has been collected via cookies and similar technology on our websites. Facebook is thereby notified that you visited our website using an end device with a particular IP address. If you have a Facebook account, Facebook can, depending on your privacy settings, match your visit to our website to your Facebook account and use this information to place targeted Facebook ads.
Facebook can transfer and save the data arising from this process to a server in the USA for analysis. In the event that personal data is transferred to the USA, Facebook has complied with the EU-US Privacy Shield, thereby ensuring that it observes European data-protection principles.
The cookies used in connection with Facebook are marketing cookies. We use these cookies only with your consent. You can prevent Facebook from collecting your data at any time by visiting cookie settings and changing the relevant setting. If you have a Facebook account, you can make further changes to how your data is processed in connection with Facebook ads by visiting your account's privacy settings. Please refer to Facebook's data policy for more information on how it processes data.
We use Google Maps on our sites to display geographical information in a visually accessible way and to help you find dealers. Google Maps is a mapping service provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland. In order for the Google map material we use to be integrated and displayed in your web browser, your web browser must connect to a Google server (which may be based in the USA) when you visit the contact page. Google is hence notified that the contact page of our website has been accessed from the IP address of your device. In the event that personal data is transferred to the USA, Google has complied with the EU-US Privacy Shield.
3. Consent and your rights regarding privacy
All personal data that you provide on the Eberspächer website will only be used without your specific consent for the purpose for which you provided them (e.g. preparation of a quotation), and for technical administration. You will be informed about the intended use of the data you have entered, and may be asked for permission for their further use. The legal basis for data processing in these cases is consent in accordance with Article 6(1)(a) GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation). Your consent is always voluntary and you can revoke it at any time with immediate effect.
In addition, even if you have given your consent, you may object at any time to your personal data being used for marketing or for market research and surveys, and may request information about these saved data. You can also have the personal data that we have saved corrected, blocked or deleted. Please contact the relevant body specified in the Legal Notice in writing or by e-mail. Please note that data required to process outstanding services or to assert our rights and any claims cannot be deleted. This also applies to data that we must store in accordance with the law. Such data will initially be blocked.
Insofar as the service providers named in this declaration process your data outside the European Union, we will ensure that these service providers guarantee a level of data protection equivalent to that of the European Union, either contractually or otherwise. You may request a copy of these guarantees via the contacts mentioned in the Legal Notice.
Finally, you also have the right to request an electronic copy of the information we process as part of a contract or based on your consent (known as the right to data portability).
5. 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.
