Privacy Policy

We, WEGMANN automotive GmbH & Co. KG, are pleased about your visit to our website. Protection of your personal data during processing is a major concern to us. We want you to feel secure when you visit our website. In the following privacy policy, we would like to inform you about the data we record at Wegmann during your visit to our website and how it is used.

Personal Data
Personal data means any information concerning the personal or material circumstances of an identified or identifiable natural person. This includes data such as your correct name, your address, your telephone number and your date of birth. Data which cannot be connected with your true identity (personal data) – such as bookmarked websites or number of website users and the IP address, is not personal data.

Personal Data Collection and Processing
When you visit our website, our web server temporarily stores by default personal data for the purpose of system security, such as the connection data of the inquiring computer (IP address), the pages you visit on our website, the date and duration of the visit, the identification data of the employed browser and operating system type as well as the website from which you accessed our website. This data is also analysed for statistical purposes. Such statistical analyses do not contain any personal data. Individual user tracking is not carried out. Personal data beyond this, such as your name, your address, telephone number or e-mail address, is not collected unless you provide this information voluntarily, e.g. for the purposes of  a registration, a survey, a competition or a request for information.

We want to improve our website continuously and therefore use the analysis tools “Google Analytics and etracker”.

Google Analytics Data Protection
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies” or text files that are stored on your computer and enable analysis of your website usage. The data created by the cookie about your usage of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. If IP anonymisation is activated on this website, your IP address will however be abbreviated previously by Google within the member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Treaty on the European Economic Area. The full IP address is transferred to the USA and abbreviated there only in exceptional cases. On behalf of the website’s operator, Google will use this information to analyse your website usage, to compile reports on website activities and to provide services connected with website usage and Internet usage to the website operator. The IP address transferred by your browser for the purposes of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data. You can prevent the storage of cookies by changing your browser software settings accordingly; we would however like to point out that in this case you might not be able to use all the functions of this website completely. In addition you can prevent the recording of data created by the cookie and related to your website usage (including your IP address) at Google as well as the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at the following link http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.

etracker Data Protection
This website uses etracker technology (www.etracker.com) to collect data on visitor behaviour. The data is collected anonymously for use in marketing and optimisation. All visitor data is saved using an anonymous user ID and can be used to aggregate a usage profile. Cookies may be used for this purpose. Cookies are small text files that are stored in the visitor’s local browser cache. It is possible to use these cookies to recognise a visitor’s browser. The data collected by the etracker technology will not be used to determine the personal identity of a website visitor and will not be compiled with  personal data relating to the person referred to by  the pseudonym unless agreed to separately by the person concerned. The collection and storage of data may be revoked at any time with respect to future services.

Usage and Circulation of Personal Data
We will utilise the personal data which you provide to meet your wishes and requirements, i.e. usually to implement the contract concluded with you, to reply to your enquiry or for the purposes of your participation in a competition. Unless you have given us your prior consent or if you have entered an objection – if and when this is stipulated by legal regulations – we will not make additional use of this data for product-related surveys and marketing purposes.

Your personal data will not be circulated, sold or otherwise transferred to third parties unless this is required for the purpose of contract implementation or you have expressly consented to this. For example it may be necessary for us to pass your address and ordering data on to our suppliers for product orders.

If transfer of personal data to an external service provider is required in order to perform a service or to reply to an enquiry, we will ensure compliance with statutory data protection regulations by taking technical and organisational measures. Furthermore, WEGMANN automotive GmbH & Co. KG places its external service providers under the obligation to comply with pertinent data protection regulations, to treat personal data as strictly confidential and to delete it when it is no longer required.

Children’s Personal Data
Because children’s privacy protection is an important concern, we do not want to collect, process or utilise any personal data of persons under the age of 18. If you as a parent or legal guardian learn that your children have transferred their personal data to us, you can contact us via the addresses indicated in the imprint if you want this data to be deleted.

Use of Cookies
This website uses cookies to create so-called sessions. The data is stored on the server and deleted after 24 hours at the latest. In addition cookies are set by Google Analytics. Further details can be found above in the section on Google Analytics. Blocking or refusing cookies may impair the functionality of this website.

If we have to store personal data in a cookie as an exception, we will obtain your express consent in advance. Furthermore we would like to point out that browsers usually have cookie management functions.

Security
WEGMANN automotive GmbH & Co. KG takes every technical and organisational security measure to protect your personal data from loss or misuse. Therefore your data will be stored in a secure operating environment which is not accessible to the public. If you would like to contact WEGMANN automotive GmbH & Co. KG by e-mail, we would like to point out that the confidentiality of transferred data is not guaranteed. E-mail content can be viewed by third parties. We therefore advise you to send us confidential data by post only.

Modification of This Privacy Policy
For legal and/or organisational reasons, modifications and/or adaptation of our privacy policy may be required from time to time. In this regard, please note the update version of our privacy policy.

Access Right
Upon written request, we will inform you about your personal data (e.g. name, address) which we have stored.
