1. General

 

Welcome to our website. We place the highest priority on the careful handling of your personal data and that is why, as part of our Internet activities, we devote considerable attention to this aspect. Compliance with the provisions of the Data Protection and Telecommunications Law are a matter of course for us. We would like to use this data protection declaration to tell you more about when we record and store which data and what we do with this data. This data protection declaration applies solely to the Bühler Motor Group.

 

2. Access data / server log files

 

You can refer to our website without providing any personal data. We only store the so-called access data (name of the website referred to, file, date and time of the referral, quantity of data transferred, report of a successful referral, browser type plus version, the user’s operating system, referrer URL (the page previously visited), IP address, provider making the enquiry). This data is used solely for statistical analysis for operating purposes and for the security and optimization of the products we offer. We reserve the right however to check the report data subsequently should there be concrete indications of suspected unauthorized use.

 

3. Treatment of personal data

 

Personal data is information with the aid of which an individual can be identified, that is information that can be followed back to a particular person. This data includes the name, the e-mail address or the telephone number. Such information that you provide to us voluntarily, for example as part of a personnel acquisition process or a request for information, will only be used for the purpose for which you have provided this data to us.

 

As required by law, personal information will only be stored until the purpose for which you have provided us with this information has been fulfilled. This data may only be stored beyond this period of time with your consent.

 

4. Making contact

 

In making contact with us (by way of a contact form or by e-mail, for example) your data will be stored in order to process the enquiry and in case you have further questions.

 

5. Cookies

 

Cookies are small files that enable specific information based on the user’s access equipment (PC, smartphone etc.) to be stored on this equipment. Their purpose is, firstly, to enhance the user friendliness of the website and therefore to serve users (e.g. storage of log-in data) but also to record statistical data on the use of the website and to enable this data to be analyzed in order to improve the service offered. As a user, you can influence the use of cookies. Most browsers have an option that restricts or completely prevents the storage of cookies. However, you should be aware that use and particularly the ease of use will be restricted without cookies.

 

6. Open Source Web-Analytics-Software program Piwik

 

On this website, we use Open Source Web-Analytics-Software program Piwik (www.piwik.org) to collect and store data for marketing and optimization purposes. Piwik uses so-called cookies, i.e. text files stored on your computer that permit us to analyze how our website is used. The information on your use of this website (including your IP address) and collected by these cookies stay on Jung GmbH & Co. KG's or Bühler Motor GmbH's servers and will not be passed on to third parties unless this is statutorily required. The data are anonymized. There will be no correlation between your IP address and other information. If you call up web pages and files provided by us and are asked to enter personal data, we will inform you that these will not be encrypted and may thus be seen or altered by unauthorized parties. You can object to any future data collection and storage at any time. Should this be the case, please send us a message at info@buehlermotor.de.

 

7. Social networks

 

We offer you so-called plug-ins to various social networks on our website. Should you use the offer that contains such a plug-in, your browser creates a direct link to the servers of the relevant website’s plug-in. The content of the plug-in will be transmitted directly from the website concerned to your browser and from here integrated into the website. We therefore have no influence on the scope of data recorded and processed with the aid of this plug-in. Should you have any questions on this subject, please obtain information from the relevant websites of the social networks integrated.

 

On this website, the “XING Share-Button“ is used. When calling up this website, your browser will temporarily set up a connection to servers operated by XING AG (“XING“) to enable the “XING Share-Button“ functions  (particularly for the calculation/display of the counter value). XING does not store any of your personal data when you are calling up this website, no IP addresses in particular. Nor will there be any analysis of your use by means of cookies in connection with the “XING Share-Button“. You will find the latest privacy information on the “XING Share-Button“ and other information at https://www.xing.com/app/share?op=data_protection

 

8. Data security

 

We secure our website and other systems against changes, destruction or loss by means of up-to-date technical and organizational measures. Our servers use various safety mechanisms in order to make unauthorized access more difficult. You should always treat your access information confidentially and close your browser window once you have ended communication with us.

 

9. Links

 

Our website also includes - easily discernible - links to other companies’ websites, on whose contents we have no influence whatsoever. We therefore cannot vouch for their contents, nor can we be made liable. Solely responsible for such contents is those pages’ provider or operator. When being linked, those pages were checked for any potential or apparent breaches of the law and none was found. However, any permanent monitoring of these linked pages without there being any clear indication of unlawful contents would be unreasonable. When we become aware of such unlawfulness, these links are removed immediately.

 

10. Cancellation, changes, corrections and updates

 

As a user, you are entitled, on request and at no expense, to obtain information on the personal data that has been stored on you. You also have the right to correct incorrect data and to bar and delete your personal data provided that this is not contrary to retention periods established in law. Should this be the case, please use the contact form that you will find on our home page.

 

11. Treatment of personal data as part of an application

 

As part of an application, your data will be electronically recorded, stored and processed. We will only record and store your data should you provide us with this information voluntarily, generally through the submission of an online application. This will be made quite clear to you and through your express consent to our data protection declaration.

 

Should we receive your application by simple e-mail or by post, we will only record, store and process your personal data once you have given, at our request, your express consent to our data protection declaration. We only store your personal data for the purpose of personnel acquisition. The data is electronically registered, stored and processed in order to deal with the application in accordance with the German Federal Data Protection Law. The data in your application will be made available to our human resources department and the specialist departments concerned as part of the application process.

 

Unless an agreement has been made with you that expressly states something different, we will delete your personal data and return any application documents received by post six months after the application procedure has been completed.

 

You may of course withdraw at any time your consent to the storage and processing of your personal data. Should this be the case, please send us a message at personal@buehlermotor.de.

 

12. Updating this declaration

 

Since the relevant provisions of the law may change and IT technology is subject to continuous development, we reserve the right to adjust and to change this declaration as required.
