2. Personal Data

Personal Data is information that can be used to identify a person. This includes such information as correct name, address, telephone number. Information that cannot be connected to your identity is excluded.

You can use our online system at a basic level without disclosing your identity. If you make an order or enquiry we ask only for the information that is needed for this transaction, for example, Name, Address and Vehicle Identification No.

In connection with your internet connection to us, for security purposes we store information that might identify you (for example, IP Address, date, time and pages referred to). No evaluation of this data on a personal basis will occur. We reserve the right however to analyse this data statistically on an anonymised basis.

Customer data of customers who do not register will be deleted immediately after shipping the goods.

3. Data Handling

Every time the human IT website is accessed or every time a file is opened, process-related access data is saved in a log file on our server. If you want to visit our website, we collect the following data, which we need in order to display our website and to ensure stability and security. The legal basis for this is Art. 6 Par. 1f GDPR:
The following are stored for a limited period of time:

  • The page from which the file was requested
  • The name of the file
  • The date and time of the request
  • The data quantity transferred
  • The access status (file transferred, file not found, etc.)
  • A description of the type of web browser used
  • The operating system used
  • The IP address of the accessing host/client system

This data is stored and may be analyzed for statistical purposes, to improve our services and products. The data will not be traced back to you, unless there has been a serious infringement, such as unauthorized access or access attempts and/or attacks on our IT infrastructure.

4. Your Rights

You have the following rights regarding your personal data:

4.1 General Rights
By law, you have the right to receive free information at any time about your stored personal data, their origin and recipients as well as the purpose of data processing, and you have the right to correction, deletion or restriction of use of these data, if applicable. If you have any questions about this or other topics related to personal data, please feel free to contact us at any time via the address specified in the legal notice.

4.2 Right to Data Portability
You have the right to have data that we automatically process on the basis of your consent or for the performance of a contract delivered to you or a third party in a common, machine-readable format. If you want these data to be transferred directly to another person, this is done only if the technological provisions allow for it.

4.3 Revoking Your Consent to the Processing of Your Data
Many steps for processing data can only be taken if you have given your express consent. You may revoke your consent at any time pursuant to Art. 21 Par. 2 GDPR. To do so, you only need to send us an informal message by e-mail. The lawfulness of the data processing carried out before the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

4.4 Rights in Data Processing According to the Legitimate Interest
Pursuant to Art. 21 Par. 1 GDPR, you have the right to object to the processing of your personal data on the basis of Art. 6 Par. 1 e GDPR (data processing in the public interest) or Art. 6 Par. 1 f GDPR (data processing to safeguard a legitimate interest) at any time for reasons arising from your particular situation; this also applies to profiling based on this provision. If you lodge an objection, we will no longer process your personal data, unless we demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing that override your interests, rights and freedoms, or if the processing serves the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims.

4.5 Rights in Direct Marketing
If we process your personal data for direct marketing purposes, you have the right pursuant to Art. 21 Par. 2 GDPR to object at any time to the processing of your personal data for the purpose of such advertising; this also applies to profiling insofar as it is associated with such direct marketing.
If you object to the processing of your personal data for the purposes of direct marketing, we will no longer process your personal data for these purposes.

4.6 Right to Appeal to the Competent Supervisory Authority
You have the right to lodge an objection with the competent supervisory authority for data protection about our processing of your personal data.

5. Contact by E-Mail or Contact Form

If you send us a request via the contact form or by e-mail, we store the data and contact details you provided (your e-mail address, maybe also your name and telephone number) in order to process your request and contact you in case of questions. Fields for supplementary information that is not required to establish contact are always marked as optional. We will not pass on these data without your consent. The data entered in the contact form are processed on the basis of your consent only (Art. 6 Par. 1 lit. a GDPR). You can revoke this consent at any time. To do so, you only need to send us an informal message by e-mail. The lawfulness of the data processing carried out before the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

We store the data you entered in the contact form until you ask us to delete them, revoke your consent to their storage or when the purpose of the data storage no longer applies (e.g. after your request has been processed). Mandatory legal requirements ─ particularly retention periods ─ remain unaffected.
