Data protection declaration of Hermann GmbH & Co. KG (Wellendingen, Germany)

 

This data protection declaration serves to inform the user about the type, scope and purpose of the collection and use of personal data by the responsible provider (Hermann GmbH & Co. KG, Lehrstr. 57, 78669 Wellendingen, e-mail: info@hermann-drehteile.de) on this website and about the rights to which they are entitled.

The legal basis of data protection is determined by the Basic Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO) of the European Union (EU). Any processing of personal data (e.g. name, address, e-mail address or telephone number of a person concerned) always takes place in accordance with these data protection regulations and the respective specific national regulations.

You can use our website without giving any personal data. If a data subject wishes to make use of our company's services via our website, it may be necessary to process personal data. If the processing of personal data is necessary and there is no legal basis for such processing, we always obtain the consent of the data subject.

We take the protection of your data seriously. For this reason, we take all appropriate measures to ensure the most complete protection possible for personal data processed via our website. However, despite all measures taken, data transmissions over the Internet can contain security gaps, so that one hundred percent protection cannot be guaranteed. Alternatively, you can also send us your data by other means of communication, e.g. by telephone or in writing to our postal address.

1. Definitions

Article 4 of the DSGVO contains special definitions, which are also the basis of this data protection declaration.

  • "third party" means any natural or legal person, authority, institution or other body other than the data subject, the data processor, the data processor and the persons authorised to process the personal data under the direct responsibility of the data processor or the data processor;

6. Links to third party websites
We are not responsible for the content of the linked pages and expressly do not adopt the content of these pages as our own. For illegal, incorrect or incomplete contents as well as for damages, which result from the use or non-use of the information, alone the offerer of the web page, to which one referred, is responsible. The liability of the person who merely refers to the publication through a link is excluded. We are only responsible for external references if we have positive knowledge of them, i.e. also of any illegal or criminal content, and if it is technically possible and reasonable for us to prevent their use.

7. Analysis and tracking tools
We use various tracking tools on our website to enable the design and continuous optimisation of the website. The tracking measures listed below and used by us are carried out on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 f DSGVO. On the other hand, we use such measures to statistically record the usage behaviour of our website and to evaluate it for the purpose of optimising our offer. These interests are to be regarded as legitimate within the meaning of the aforementioned provision.
The respective data processing purposes and data categories can be found in the corresponding tracking tools below.


a) Google Analytics 
For the purpose of demand-oriented design and continuous optimization of our pages, we use Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. (https://www.google.de/intl/de/about/) (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; hereinafter "Google"). In this context, pseudonymised user profiles are created and cookies (see section 5) are used. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website such as

  • Browser type/version,
  • the operating system used,
  • Referrer URL (the previously visited page),
  • Host name of the accessing computer (IP address),
  • Time of the server request,

are transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. The information is used to evaluate the use of the website, to compile reports on the website activities and to provide further services associated with the use of the website and the Internet for the purposes of market research and demand-oriented design of these Internet pages. This information may also be transferred to third parties if this is required by law or if third parties process this data on behalf of the company. Under no circumstances will your IP address be merged with other data from Google. The IP addresses are anonymized so that an assignment is not possible (IP masking).
You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser, however please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of our website.
You can also prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing a browser add-on (https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en).
As an alternative to the browser add-on, especially for browsers on mobile devices, you can also prevent Google Analytics from collecting data by clicking on the above link. An opt-out cookie is set to prevent future collection of your data when you visit our website. The opt-out cookie is only valid in this browser and only for our website and is stored on your device. If you delete the cookies in this browser, you must set the opt-out cookie again.
Further information on data protection in connection with Google Analytics can be found under the following link in the Google Analytics help: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=en 

b) Google Adwords Conversion Tracking
We also use Google Conversion Tracking to statistically record and evaluate the use of our website for the purpose of optimising it for you. Google Adwords will set a cookie (see paragraph 5) on your computer if you have accessed our website via a Google ad.
These cookies expire after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. If the user visits certain pages of the Adwords customer's website and the cookie has not yet expired, Google and the customer can recognize that the user has clicked on the ad and has been redirected to this page.
Each Adwords customer receives a different cookie. Cookies cannot therefore be traced via the websites of Adwords customers. The information collected using the conversion cookie is used to generate conversion statistics for Adwords customers who have opted for conversion tracking. Adwords customers see the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a page with a conversion tracking tag. However, you will not receive any information that personally identifies users.
If you do not wish to participate in the tracking process, you can also reject the setting of a cookie required for this - for example using a browser setting that generally deactivates the automatic setting of cookies. You can also deactivate cookies for conversion tracking by setting your browser to block cookies from the "www.googleadservices.com" domain. You will find Google's privacy policy for conversion tracking under the following link: https://services.google.com/sitestats/de.html

8. Social Media Plugins
We use social plugins of social networks (e.g. Facebook, Google+, Instagram) on our website on the basis of art. 6 par. 1 p. 1 lit. f DSGVO in order to make our company better known. The underlying advertising purpose is to be regarded as a legitimate interest within the meaning of the DSGVO. Responsibility for data protection-compliant operation must be guaranteed by the respective provider. The integration of these plugins by us takes place in the way of the so-called two-click method around visitors of our web page in the best possible way to protect.

a) Facebook
Our website uses social media plugins from Facebook to personalize their use. For this we use the "LIKE" or "PART"-button. This is an offer from Facebook.
When you access a page of our website that contains such a plugin, your browser establishes a direct connection to the Facebook servers. The content of the plugin is transmitted directly from Facebook to your browser and integrated into the website.
By integrating the plugins, Facebook receives the information that your browser has called up the corresponding page of our website, even if you do not have a Facebook account or are not currently logged on to Facebook. This information (including your IP address) is transmitted directly from your browser to a Facebook server in the USA and stored there.
If you are logged in to Facebook, Facebook can directly associate your visit to our website with your Facebook account. If you interact with the plugins, for example by pressing the "LIKE" or "PART" button, the corresponding information is also transmitted directly to a Facebook server and stored there. The information will also be made visible to everyone on Facebook.
Facebook may use this information for the purposes of advertising, market research and demand-oriented design of Facebook pages. To this end, Facebook creates usage, interest and relationship profiles, e.g. to evaluate your use of our website with regard to the advertisements displayed to you on Facebook, to inform other Facebook users about your activities on our website and to provide other services associated with the use of Facebook.
If you do not want Facebook to associate the information collected through our website with your Facebook account, you must log out of Facebook before visiting my website. You can also completely prevent the Instagram plugin from loading with add-ons for your browser, for example with the script blocker "NoScript" http://noscript.net 
The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Facebook and your rights and setting options for the protection of your privacy can be found in the data protection information, in particular in Facebook's data policy, which can be viewed at the following link: https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/


b) Google "+1" button
Our website uses the "+1" button of the social network Google, which is operated by Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA. The button is marked with "+1".
The "+1" button is an abbreviation for "that's pretty cool" or "look at that". The button is not used to record your visits to the web. 
If a website of our website contains the "+1" button, your internet browser will load this button from the Google server and display it. The website you visit on our website is automatically notified to the Google server. When you see a +1 button, Google does not permanently log your browsing history, but only for up to two weeks. 
Google keeps this data about your visit stored for this period for system maintenance and troubleshooting purposes. However, this data is not structured according to individual profiles, user names or URLs. This information is also not accessible to website publishers or advertisers. The use of this information is only for maintenance and troubleshooting in internal systems at Google. Google will not evaluate your visit to a page with a +1 button in any other way. 
There will be no further evaluation of your visit to a website of our website with a "+1" button.
Allocating +1 itself is a public process, so anyone who does a Google search or accesses content on the web that you give +1 can potentially see that you have given +1 to that content. Give +1 only if you are sure that you want to share this recommendation with the whole world.
A click on this +1 button serves as a recommendation for other users in Google's search results. You can publicly indicate that you like our website, that you agree with our website or that you can recommend our website. If you have registered for Google+ and are logged in, the +1 button turns blue with one click. In addition, +1 will be added to the +1 tab in your Google profile. On this tab you can manage your +1 and decide whether you want to make the +1 tab public. 
In order to store and make publicly available your +1 recommendation, Google uses your profile to collect information about the URL you recommend, your IP address and other browser-related information. If you cancel your +1, this information will be deleted. All +1 recommendations from you are listed on the +1 tab in your profile.
Further information and Google's current privacy policy can be found at https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/ More information from Google about the Google+1 button can be found at https://developers.google.com/+/web/buttons-policy
If you do not want Google to associate the data collected via our website directly with your Google+ profile, you must log out of Google+ before visiting our website. You can also completely prevent us from loading the Google plugins for your browser with Add-Ond, for example with the script blocker "NoScript" http://noscript.net .

c) Instagram Social Plugins
Our website uses so-called Instagram plugins (" Plugins"), which are operated by Instagram LLC, 1601 Willow Road, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA (" Instagram"). The plugins are marked with an Instagram logo, for example in the form of an "Instagram camera".
When you visit a page of our website that contains such a plugin, your browser establishes a direct connection to Instagram's servers. The content of the plugin is transmitted by Instagram to your browser and integrated into the page. Through this integration Instagram receives the information that your browser has accessed the corresponding page of our website, even if you do not have an Instagram profile or are not logged on to Instagram at all. This information (including your IT address) is transferred directly from your browser to an Instagram server in the USA and stored there.
If you are logged in to Instagram, Instagram can immediately associate your visit to our website with your Instagram account. If you interact with the plugins, for example by pressing the "Instagram" button, this information is also transmitted directly to an Instagram server and stored there. The information is also published on your Instagram account and displayed to your contacts.
Please refer to Instagram's privacy policy https://help.instagram.com/155833707900388 for the purpose and scope of data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Instagram as well as your rights and setting options for protecting your privacy.
If you do not want Instagram to immediately associate the data collected through our website with your Instagram account, you must log out of Instagram before visiting our website. You can also completely prevent the Instagram plugin from loading with add-ons for your browser, for example with the script blocker "NoScript" http://noscript.net .


d) Use of YouTube plugins
We use the integration of videos via YouTube. YouTube is operated by YouTube LLC, 901 Cherry Avenue, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA (" YouTube"). YouTube is represented by Google Inc. based at 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 940431, USA.
On our websites we use plugins from YouTube. If you call up the websites of our Internet presence provided with such a plugin, a connection to the YouTube servers is established and the plugin is displayed in. The YouTube server receives information about which of our Internet pages you have visited. If you are logged in as a YouTube member, YouTube assigns this information to your personal user account. When using the plugin, such as clicking the city button of a video, this information is also assigned to your user account. You can prevent this assignment by logging out of your YouTube account and other YouTube LLC. and Google Inc. accounts and deleting the company's cookies before using our website.
Further information on data processing and privacy protection by YouTube (Google) can be found at https://google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy
