2. COLLECTION AND STORAGE OF PERSONAL DATA AND TYPE AND PURPOSE OF THEIR USE
We collect and store personal data in the following cases. We use these exclusively in the manner and for the purposes described below.
a) Visiting our website
When you visit our website www.doettling.com, the browser used on your device automatically sends information to the server of our website, which is temporarily stored by the server in a so-called log file. The following information is recorded without your intervention and stored until it is automatically deleted:
- the IP address of the requesting computer,
- the date and time of access,
- the name and URL of the retrieved file,
- the website from which access is made (referrer URL),
- the browser used and
- if necessary, the operating system of your computer and the name of your Internet access provider.
Log files are important sources of information for making the processes on a system traceable. They can be used, for example, for problem analysis or the reconstruction of lost data. We use the data stored with the log files in this context:
- to ensure the connection and use of our website,
- to evaluate and permanently guarantee system safety and stability,
- to ensure the technical administration of the network infrastructure,
- to optimize our Internet offer,
- to arrange for internal statistical surveys.
Log file information is stored for a maximum of seven days for security reasons (e.g. to investigate misuse or fraud) and then deleted. Data whose further storage is required for evidentiary purposes are excluded from deletion until the respective incident has been finally clarified.
The legal basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR. Our legitimate interest in data processing is derived from the purposes listed above. Under no circumstances do we use the data collected for the purpose of drawing conclusions about your person. The IP address of the requesting computer is evaluated only in the event of attacks on the network infrastructure and for statistical purposes.
b) Use of contact form
You can contact us via a form provided on our website. Your name, a valid e-mail address and the background of your contact are required. By providing your contact details, you agree that we may use them to respond to your request.
We process the data you make available to us exclusively for the purpose of processing and responding to your request.
The legal basis for data processing is our legitimate interest in processing your request (Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR), and your consent to the processing of the data you have entered in the contact form (Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a GDPR).
Please note that the use of our contact form is not necessary to contact us. We will also be happy to answer your questions using the other contact details provided on our website. The personal data collected by us to process your request will be automatically deleted after the request you have made has been dealt with.
c) Newsletter registration
In addition to information about our product range and our new products, our electronic newsletter provides you with regular information about our company.
You can register via our website to receive our electronic newsletter. We use the so-called double opt-in procedure for your registration, i.e. registration is completed only when you confirm your wish to receive our electronic newsletter via a link, which you will receive by e-mail, which we will send to you at your request. In this case we collect the following personal data from you:
- your e-mail address,
- your surname and first name,
- the IP address provided by your Internet service provider upon confirmation of the link,
- the date and time of confirmation of the link.
These data are processed in order to
- send you the newsletter,
- address you personally in our newsletter,
- declare your consent to receive the electronic newsletter and
- prove possible misuse of your e-mail address at a later time.
The legal basis for data processing is your consent, which you give when registering for our newsletter (Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a GDPR).
With your consent, you also consent to the dispatch of our newsletter via TYPO3 GmbH, Am Wehrhahn 41, 40211 Düsseldorf, hereinafter referred to as “dispatch service provider”. The data protection regulations of the dispatch service provider can be viewed here: https://www.typo3.com.
According to its own information, the dispatch service provider can use data in pseudonymous form, i.e. without assignment to a user, to optimize or improve its own services, e.g. to technically optimize the dispatch and presentation of the newsletter, or for statistical purposes in order to determine from which countries the recipients come. It has a legitimate interest in this (Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR). However, the dispatch service does not use the data of our newsletter recipients to write them down or pass them on to third parties.
