(2) This data record consists, for example, of your IP address, the date and time of the request, the name of the requested file, the transferred file volume and the access status, a description of the web browser and operating system used and the name of your Internet service provider.

(3) These data are collected for technical reasons. An evaluation takes place exclusively for statistical purposes and without personal reference (visitor numbers and page popularity). A deletion takes place automatically after 7 days at the latest.

6. Collection of personal data during informational use

(1) If you only use the website for information purposes, i.e. if you do not log in to use the website, register or otherwise provide us with information, we do not collect any personal data, with the exception of the data mentioned under 5.2, which your browser transmits to enable you to visit the website technically.

(2) When using the website, so-called cookies are stored on your computer. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your hard drive assigned to the browser you are using and through which certain information flows to the location that sets the cookie (in this case us). Cookies cannot execute programs or transmit viruses to your computer. They serve here only to make the Internet offer altogether more user-friendly and more effective.

For example, we use cookies to identify you for subsequent visits if you have an account with us. Otherwise you would have to log in again for each visit.

  • a) This website uses cookies to the following extent:
  • Transient cookies (temporary use)
  • Persistent cookies (temporary use)
  • Third-Party Cookies (from Third-Party Providers)
  • Flash cookies (permanent use)
  • b) Transient cookies are automatically deleted when you close your browser. This includes session cookies in particular. They store a so-called session ID, which can be used to assign various requests from your browser to the shared session. This allows your computer to be recognized when you return to the site. Session cookies are deleted when you log out or close your browser.
  • c) Persistent cookies are automatically deleted after a specified period, which may vary depending on the cookie. You can delete the cookies in the security settings of your browser at any time.
  • d) You can configure your browser settings according to your wishes and e.g. refuse the acceptance of third-party cookies or all cookies. However, we would like to point out that you may then not be able to use all the functions of this website.
  • e) The Flash cookies used are not recorded by your browser, but by your Flash plug-in. These store the necessary data independently of your used browser and have no automatic expiration date. If you do not want the Flash cookies to be processed, you must install an appropriate add-on. The legal basis for this data processing is Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 f) DSGVO. Our legitimate interest lies in the fact that data processing enables us to carry out statistical evaluations regarding the use of our website and to optimise our Internet offers for users.

7. Use of functions of our website

(1) In addition to the purely informational use of our website, we offer various services that you can use if you are interested. For this purpose, you must usually provide further personal data which we use to provide the respective service. If additional voluntary information is possible, it is marked accordingly.

(2) When you contact the service provider by e-mail or via the contact form, we will store your e-mail address and, if you so indicate, your name and telephone number in order to answer your questions.

8. Contact form

On our website you have the possibility to send us an encrypted e-mail with your request via the form “Contact”. Here you can ask questions about our company, our products or our services.

In order to be able to process your request, we ask you to enter personal data in our input mask. This includes your name and e-mail address and other information such as the subject of your request and your message. In addition to the mandatory fields, you can also enter additional information. Optional address and/or telephone number can be given.

This requested information enables us to deal with your request comprehensively. The communication of the data provided by you in this context is expressly on a voluntary basis.

The personal data provided to us from your above details as well as the time of making contact will be used exclusively for the purpose for which you provide it to us when contacting us – in particular the processing of your enquiry. The information you provide will only be used to process your request. The data will not be used for other purposes or passed on to third parties without your express consent. Neander Motors AG`s partner companies are exempt from this rule if this is necessary to fulfil your request. These could be for example: Our suppliers, transport and logistics partners and our trading partners. If there are no legal storage obligations, your personal data will be deleted after the request has been processed.  The legal basis for data processing is Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 f) DSGVO. Our legitimate interest is that we need your data in order to process or answer your message.

9. Newsletter

With the newsletter we inform you about us and our offers.

If you would like to receive the newsletter, we require a valid e-mail address from you as well as information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the given e-mail address or that the owner agrees to receive the newsletter. If available, the name and form of address can be entered voluntarily in order to personalise the newsletter dispatch. This data will only be used to send the newsletter and will not be passed on to third parties.  To confirm the ownership of the e-mail address, an e-mail is sent with a link to activate the subscription (Double-OptIn). With the registration to the newsletter we store for the legal limitation period, beginning with the date of the notice of departure, your IP address and the date of the registration. This storage serves solely as proof in the event that a third party misuses an e-mail address and registers for receiving the newsletter without the knowledge of the authorised party.  You can revoke your consent to the storage of data, your email address and its use for sending the newsletter at any time. The revocation can take place over a left in the newsletters, or by report to the contact possibilities standing above and below.

10. Liability for contents

The contents of our pages were created with the greatest care. However, we cannot assume any liability for the correctness, completeness and topicality of the contents. As a service provider we are responsible according to § 7 Abs.1 TMG for our own contents on these pages according to the general laws. According to §§ 8 to 10 TMG, we are not obliged as a service provider to monitor transmitted or stored third-party information or to investigate circumstances that indicate illegal activity. Obligations to remove or block the use of information in accordance with general laws remain unaffected by this. However, liability in this respect is only possible from the time of knowledge of a concrete violation of the law. As soon as we become aware of such infringements, we will remove these contents immediately.

11. Liability for links

Our pages may contain links to external websites of third parties over whose contents we have no influence. Therefore, we cannot assume any liability for these external contents. The respective provider or operator of the pages is always responsible for the contents of the linked pages. The linked pages were checked for possible legal infringements at the time of linking. Illegal contents were not recognizable at the time of linking. However, a permanent control of the contents of the linked pages is not reasonable without concrete evidence of a violation of law. We will remove such links immediately upon becoming aware of any violations of the law.

12. Data security

We secure our website and other systems through appropriate technical and organizational measures against loss, destruction, access, alteration or distribution of your data by unauthorized persons. However, despite regular checks, complete protection against all hazards is not possible.

Our website uses the industry standard SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) for encryption. This guarantees the confidentiality of your personal data via the Internet. You can tell whether an encrypted transmission is taking place by the closed key/lock symbol in the display of your browser.

13. Data transfer

Your personal data will only be passed on to third parties,

  • if you have given your express consent to this in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 a) DSGVO;
  • if the transfer is necessary to fulfil contractual obligations pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 b) DSGVO;
  • if we are legally obliged to disclose the data within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 c) DSGVO;
  • if the disclosure of the data is in the public interest within the meaning of Art. 6 Para. 1 e) DSGVO or;
  • if the disclosure of data pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 f) DSGVO is necessary to protect our legitimate interests or the legitimate interests of a third party, unless your interests in the protection of your data prevail.

14. Data categories

We process the following categories of data: master data (e.g. company, contact person if applicable, address), communication data, contract data, receivables data, payment and default information if applicable. See the information above.

15. Third party beneficiaries

In order to process your requests satisfactorily, we may have to pass on your personal data to third party recipients. Third party recipients can be Neander Motors AG, our suppliers, transport and logistics partners and our trading partners.

16. Duration of storage of personal data

Your data will be stored by us for as long as it is required for the purposes for which it is processed. In addition, we store data only to the extent that we are legally obliged to do so, e.g. due to legal storage obligations.

17. Information on the right of objection

Pursuant to Article 21 DSGVO, an objection to the processing of personal data concerning you on the basis of Article 6 para. 1 e) (data processing in the public interest) or f) (data processing to safeguard legitimate interests on the basis of a weighing of interests) is possible at any time. In the event of an objection, the personal data will no longer be processed, unless compelling grounds for processing worthy of protection are proven which outweigh the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.

Please send your objection to the e-mail address datenschutz@neander-motors.com.

18. Information on the right of withdrawal

If you have given us permission to process personal data, you can revoke this permission at any time. Of course, this also applies to declarations of consent issued to us before 25 May 2018 (before the DSGVO came into force). The revocation of a consent can always unfold only for the future validity. The lawfulness of the processing shall not be retroactively removed by revocation.

Please send your revocation by e-mail to datenschutz@neander-motors.com.
