This data protection policy is valid for Landbell AG. We attach great importance to the protection of your personal data and comply strictly with the provisions under data protection law. Unless explicit consent has been given otherwise, personal data are only collected in the extent required for technical reasons or for purposes associated with the maintenance and improvement of our websites and will in no event be sold or passed on for any other reason to third parties outside our group of companies or other than our service providers. The following policy provides you with information on how we ensure said protection and what data are collected, processed, used and, if applicable, passed on for what purpose.
1. Data processing on this website
Your visit to the website is recorded in the log. The following data, which your browser transmits to us, are captured in particular:
- The IP address your PC is currently using
- Date and time
- Type of browser and version
- Your PC's operating system
- The sites you visited
- Name and size of requested file(s)
- as well as the URL of the referring website, if applicable.
We are, as a rule, not able to identify data subjects and do not intend to do so. These data are collected for data security purposes, for optimising our internet offer and for analysing errors. Furthermore, we use tracking technologies and create user profiles for marketing and optimisation purposes, whereby the data used are rendered anonymous. It is impossible to connect this information to specific personal data. No personal surfer profiles or the like are created or processed.
2. Contact information
Furthermore, we only store personal data that you yourself provide in our contact form for the purpose of establishing a contact. The input and contact forms contain information regarding the purpose of the data requested in the respective form. Such data are transmitted through the internet in encrypted form (by selecting an https connection).
Whenever we use service providers to perform and settle processes, the contractual relations are designed in accordance with the provisions in the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG). In this case, we will ensure in particular that third parties are obliged to maintain data secrecy and that all the ten points set forth in Section 11 of the German Federal Data Protection Act ("Commissioned processing of personal data") are regulated by contract.
Log files are usually only analysed by the administrator to identify and analyse errors and are deleted after 6 months at the latest.
3. Right to be informed
If you provided us with personal data and no longer agree with the storage of your data or your data have become incorrect, we will initiate erasure or blocking of your data upon receiving a respective notification or perform the required corrections (in the extent that this is possible in accordance with the applicable law). Upon request, you will receive information on all the personal data we have stored with respect to you free of charge; please send an informal notice to us or our data protection officer Mr Arndt Halbach (see below).
4. Storage of data provided
Personal data submitted to us through our website are only stored until the purpose for which the data were provided to us is fulfilled. If specific preservation periods under commercial or tax law apply, the storage period for certain data may amount to up to 10 years.
5. Applicable law
Our activities are subject to German law.
6. Disclaimer with regard to external links
As far as this website contains links to other websites, we point out that we have no influence whatsoever on the design and the contents of pages that are connected by a link and that we are not responsible for their contents. This applies to all external links on this website and all contents of pages that are connected through advertising instruments (e.g. banners, text advertisements, video advertisements). No illegal contents were visible on pages that are connected through a link at the time the links were placed. Links are examined for illegal contents at regular intervals and removed immediately if violations against the law are identified.
7. Information on Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service by Google Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics uses "cookies", text files that are stored on your computer enabling analysis of your use of the website (cf. information below!). The cookie-generated information about your visit to this site is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA for storage. In the event that IP anonymisation is activated on this website, Google will first abbreviate your IP address within Member States of the European Union or in other signatory states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area.
Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transferred to a Google server in the USA and abbreviated there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports about your activities within this site, and to provide the website operator with further services related to use of the website and Internet use. The IP address communicated by your browser in connection with Google Analytics will not be compiled with other Google data.
You can prevent the cookies from being saved by choosing the respective setting in your browser software; we should mention, however, that this may compromise your ability to make full use of all of the functions this website offers. Furthermore, you can prevent the data generated by the cookie and relating to your use of the website (including your IP address) from being collected by Google, and prevent Google from processing these data, by downloading and installing the browser plugin available through the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.
8. Information on the possibility to encrypt data
If you use our web shop with the respective access authorisation in your capacity as a dealer, the entire data exchange will be encrypted by using the https protocol.
As mentioned earlier on, the web pages use so-called cookies in different contexts (including e.g. session and tracking cookies). Among other functions, this provides the surfing customer with a unique session ID that is needed to prevent the user of the website from being transferred between different web servers (e.g. in case of load sharing), which must not happen if a user is, for instance, filling out a form. Cookies are furthermore used by our analysis tools that we use to constantly improve our web presence and to make surfing our sites as easy and comfortable as possible for you.
10. Information on safety and confidentiality of personal data
We guarantee confidentiality and safety of your personal data by adhering to the following:
- We only use the personal data that you provide to us through our website or in the scope of email communication to fulfil your wish or request.
- Our employees are obliged to maintain secrecy.
- We have taken safety measures that are appropriate in extent and correspond to the present state of the art.
- Our systems are checked for safety issues at regular intervals to ensure that we can sustainably protect the data we store from any damage, loss or unauthorised access.
- Our data protection officer ensures that the "data protection policy" is complied with.
Please note that any information you send to us via email is not encrypted, which is why you should send confidential data by post only.
11. Information on currentness
All the information on this website was verified with great care. Nevertheless, we do not assume any warranty for the contents of our own website always being correct, complete and up to date.
The "data protection policy" is updated with any introduction of new products or services, when internet procedures change or internet and IT safety technology is further developed. We therefore reserve the right to amend or supplement the policy as required. Any amendments will be published here. Therefore, you should regularly visit the website to obtain up-to-date information with respect to the data protection policy.
