1. Introduction

The following information gives you - the "data subject" - an overview of the processing of your personal data by us and your rights under data protection laws. It is possible to use our websites without needing to provide personal data. However, if you wish to use the special services on our website provided by our company, it may be necessary to process your personal data. If the processing of personal data is necessary and no legal basis exists for such processing, we will generally seek your consent.

Personal data, such as your name, address, or email address, are always processed in compliance with GDPR, and in accordance with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable to Schneider GmbH & Co KG. This privacy policy sets out the scope and purpose of the personal data collected, used and processed by us.

As the controller, we have implemented numerous technical and organisational measures to ensure that protection of personal data processed through this website is as comprehensive as possible. Nevertheless, web-based data transfer generally has some security vulnerabilities and is not 100% secure. For this reason, you are free to send us your personal data using alternative means, for example by telephone or by regular mail.

4. Definitions

The privacy policy is based on the terminology used by the European Directive and Ordinance issuer when issuing the GDPR. Our privacy policy should be easy to read and understand for the public as well as for our customers and business partners. To ensure this, we would like to explain the terminology we use beforehand. In this privacy policy we use the following terms:

1. Personal data
Personal data means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. An identifiable natural person means anyone who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.

2. Data subject
Data subject means any identified or identifiable natural person whose personal data are processed by the controller (our company).

3. Processing
Processing means any operation or set of operations which is performed on personal data, whether or not by automated means, such as collection, recording, organisation, structuring, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.

4. Restriction of processing
Restriction of processing means the marking of stored personal data with the aim of limiting their processing in the future.

5. Profiling
Profiling means any form of automated processing of personal data consisting of the use of personal data to evaluate certain personal aspects relating to a natural person, in particular to analyse or predict aspects concerning that natural person’s performance at work, economic situation, health, personal preferences, interests, reliability, behaviour, location or movements.

6. Pseudonymisation
Pseudonymisation means the processing of personal data in such a manner that the personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without the use of additional information, provided that such additional information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organisational measures to ensure that the personal data are not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.

7. Processor
Processor means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which processes personal data on behalf of the controller.

8. Recipient
Recipient means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or another body, to which the personal data are disclosed, whether a third party or not. However, public authorities which may receive personal data in the framework of a particular inquiry in accordance with Union or Member State law shall not be regarded as recipients.

9. Third party
Third party means a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or body other than the data subject, controller, processor and persons who, under the direct authority of the controller or processor, are authorised to process personal data. 10. Consent Consent means any freely given, specific, informed and unambiguous indication of the data subject’s wishes by which they, by a statement or by a clear affirmative action, signify agreement to the processing of personal data relating to them.

 

5. Legal basis of processing

Article 6, Para 1, Point a GDPR (in conjunction with Section 15 Para 3 German Act for Telemedia Services (TMG) serves our company as the legal basis for processing operations in which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose.

Where the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are a party, such as in the case of processing operations necessary for the supply of goods or the provision of any other service or service in return, the processing is based on Article 6, Para 1, Point b GDPR. The same applies to processing operations which are necessary for carrying out pre-contractual steps, for example in the case of enquiries about our products or services.

If our company is subject to a legal obligation requiring the processing of personal data, such as for compliance with tax obligations, data processing is then based on Article 6, Para 1, Point c GDPR.

In rare cases, the processing of personal data might become necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person. This would be the case, for example, if a visitor were to be injured on our premises and as a result their name, age, health insurance details or other vital information had to be passed on to a doctor, hospital or other third party. In this case, the processing would be based on Article 6, Para 1, Point d GDPR.

Finally, processing operations could be based on Article 6, Para 1, Point f GDPR. Processing operations which are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases are based on this legal basis if the processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, provided that this is not outweighed by the interests, basic constitutional rights and freedoms of the data subject. We are permitted to carry out such processing operations in particular because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In this regard, the legislator took the view that a legitimate interest could be assumed if you are a customer of our company (Recital 47, Clause 2 GDPR).

 

6. Data transfer to third parties

Your personal data will not be transferred to third parties for purposes other than those listed below. We will only share your personal information with third parties if:

1. You have given your express consent according to Article 6, Para 1, Clause 1, Point a GDPR,

2. A disclosure under Article 6, Para 1, Clause 1, Point f GDPR is permitted to protect our legitimate interests and there is no reason to assume that you have an overriding legitimate interest in the non-disclosure of your data;

3. Where, for the purposes of disclosure under Article 6, Para 1, Clause 1, Point c GDPR, a legal obligation exists; and

4. This is legally permissible and in accordance with Article 6, Para 1, Clause 1, Point b GDPR. it is necessary for processing contractual relationships with you.

To protect your data and allow us to transfer data to third countries (outside the EU/EEA) where appropriate, we have entered into processing agreements based on the European Commission's standard contractual terms.

And / Or

data are only transferred to a state that is not a member of the European Economic Area if that state can demonstrate an adequate level of data protection, as confirmed by the EU Commission; that it has provided adequate data protection guarantees; that it is necessary for the fulfilment of contractual obligations; or if you have given your consent to so. If a processor is commissioned with the performance of a contract, we will enter into a contract to carry out processing within the meaning of Article 28 GDPR and obtain your express consent in advance.

 

7. Technology

7.1 SSL/TLS encryption
This site uses SSL or TLS encryption to ensure the security of data processing and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders, login data or contact requests that you send to us, the Operator. You can recognise an encrypted connection by the fact that the browser address line contains a "https://" instead of a "http://" and by the lock icon in the address bar. We use this technology to protect your transmitted data.

7.2 Data collection when visiting the website
When you use our website for information purposes only, i.e., if you do not register or otherwise transmit information to us, we only collect the data that your browser sends to our server (in so-called server log files). Our website collects a range of general data and information each time you call up a page or a page is called up by an automated system. This general data and information are stored in server log files. The following data can be collected

1. The browser type and version
2. The operating system used by the accessing system
3. The subdomains which are controlled using a system accessing our website
4. The date and time the website was accessed
5. An Internet Protocol (IP) address
6. The ISP of the accessing system.

This information is needed to

1. Deliver our website content correctly
2. Ensure the permanent operability of our computer systems and the technology of our website; and
3. Provide law enforcement authorities with the information needed to prosecute in the event of a cyber-attack.

Therefore, the data and information collected will be used by us for statistical purposes only and with the aim of increasing the data protection and data security of our company so that we can ultimately ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data we process. Data in the server log files are stored separately from any personal data provided by a data subject and are deleted at regular intervals (after one year at the latest).

The legal basis for the data processing is Article 6, Para 1, Clause 1, Point f GDPR. Our legitimate interest follows from the data collection purposes listed above.

 

8. Cookies

8.1 General information about cookies
We use cookies on our website. These are small files that are automatically created by your browser and stored on your computer system (laptop, tablet, smartphone or similar) when you visit our site. Information stored in the cookie is related to the specific end device being used. This does not mean, however, that we can gain direct knowledge of your identity. Use of cookies serves to make our offer more pleasant for you. For example, we use so-called session cookies to indicate that you have already visited individual pages of our website. These are automatically deleted after you leave our site. We also use temporary cookies to optimise user-friendliness. These are stored on your end device for a given fixed period of time. If you visit our site again in order to use our services, the system automatically recognises that you have already been with us and which entries and settings you have made so that you do not have to enter them again. We also use cookies to keep statistics of the use of our site which we evaluate to improve the service we offer you. These cookies enable us to automatically recognise that you have already been to our site when you visit it again. These cookies are automatically deleted after a defined period of time.

You can set your preferences and learn more about cookies here.

8.2 Legal basis for the use of cookies
The data processed by cookies, which are required for the proper functioning of the website, are thus necessary for the protection of our legitimate interests and those of third parties in accordance with Article 6, Para 1, Clause 1, Point f GDPR. For all other cookies, it is the case that you have given your consent via our opt-in cookie pop/up in accordance with Article 6, Para 1, Point a GDPR.

 

9. Contents of our website

9.1 Contact / contact form
Personal data are collected when contacting us (e.g., via a contact form or email). The contact form indicates which data are collected. These data are stored and used exclusively for the purpose of responding to your query or for contacting you and associated technical administration. The legal basis for processing the data is our legitimate interest in responding to your query in accordance with Article 6, Para 1, Point a GDPR. If the purpose of getting in touch with us is to conclude a contract, the additional legal basis for the processing is Article 6, Para 1, Point b GDPR. Your data will be deleted after your request has been completed, which is the case if it can be inferred from the circumstances that the matter concerned has been resolved and provided that there are no statutory retention obligations to the contrary. You may revoke the consent to the storage of your personal data, which you have given us exclusively for the purpose of contacting you, at any time.

10. Newsletters

10.1 Newsletter to existing customers
If you have provided us with your email address when purchasing goods or services, we may periodically email you offers for goods or services from our range similar to those you have already purchased. In accordance with Section 7, Subsection 3 German Act against Unfair Competition (UWG), we do not need to obtain your separate consent for this. In this respect, the data processing is carried out solely on the basis of our legitimate interest in personalised direct marketing in accordance with Article 6, Para 1, Point f GDPR. If you initially objected to the use of your email address for this purpose, we will not send you any email. You have the right to object to the use of your email address for the aforementioned advertising purposes at any time with effect for the future. To do so, notify the controller named at the beginning. You will only incur transmission costs as per the basic rate. After we receive your objection, the use of your email address for advertising purposes will cease immediately.

10.2 Marketing newsletter
On our website you are given the opportunity to subscribe to our company newsletter. Which personal data exactly is transmitted to us upon subscription to the newsletter depends on the input mask used for this purpose.

We inform our customers and business partners at regular intervals by means of a newsletter about our offers. Generally speaking, you will only receive our company newsletter if
1. You have a valid email address and
2. You have signed up to receive the newsletter.

For legal reasons, a confirmation email will be sent to the email address you entered for the first time for the newsletter using the double opt-in process. This confirmation email is used to verify that you the owner of the email address, have agreed to be sent the newsletter.

When registering for the newsletter, we also store the IP address assigned by the Internet Service Provider (ISP) to the computer system used by the person concerned at the time of registration as well as the date and time of registration. The collection of this data is necessary in order to be able to trace the (possible) misuse of your email address at a later date and therefore serves to protect our legal rights.

The personal data collected in the context of registering for the newsletter are only used to send our newsletter. In addition, subscribers to the newsletter may be informed by email, as long as this is necessary for the operation of the newsletter service or a registration in question, which might apply in the event of modifications to the newsletter offer, or in the event of a change in technical circumstances. There will be no transfer of personal data collected by the newsletter service to third parties. You are free to cancel your subscription to our newsletter at any time. The consent to the storage of personal data, which you have given us for sending out the newsletter, may be revoked at any time. For the purpose of revocation of consent, a corresponding link is found in each newsletter. It is also possible to unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time directly on the website of the controller, or to communicate this to the controller in a different way.

The legal basis for data processing for the purpose of sending newsletters is Art. 6, Para 1, Point a GDPR.

10.3 Inxmail
The newsletter is sent by Inxmail GmbH, Wentzingerstr. 17, 79106 Freiburg, Germany. The email addresses of our newsletter recipients, as well as other data described in this document, are stored on Inxmail's servers in Germany. Inxmail uses this information to send and evaluate the newsletter on our behalf. According to its own information, Inxmail may use this data to optimise or improve its own services, e.g., to optimise how newsletters are presented and sent or for economic purposes in order to determine the countries from which the recipients come. However, Inxmail does not use the data of our newsletter recipients to write to them itself nor does it pass such information on to third parties. We trust in the reliability, security of computer systems and data security of Inxmail and have concluded a data processing contract with Inxmail. Inxmail operates in compliance with the EU GDPR.

Login data
To subscribe to the newsletter, you only need to enter your email address and at least one field of interest. Optionally, we ask you to provide your first and last name, company and country. This information is only used to personalise the newsletter. We also ask you for optional additional information. We only use this information to adapt the contents of the newsletter to the interests of our readers.

Statistical surveys and analyses
The newsletters contain a so-called web beacon, i.e., a pixel-sized file that is retrieved from the Inxmail GmbH server when the newsletter is opened. During the retrieval of this file, technical information, such as information about your browser and your system, your IP address, and the time this file was retrieved are collected initially. This information is used to technically improve the services based on the technical data or the target groups and their reading behaviour.

The statistical surveys also include determining whether and if so when the newsletters are opened, and which links are clicked. This information is not assigned to individual newsletter recipients, but is only stored anonymously. The analyses are used to identify the reading habits of our users and to adapt our content to them.

The data processing is based on your consent (Art. 6, Para. 1, Point a GDPR). You can revoke this consent at any time. The lawfulness of the data processing operations already carried out remains unaffected by the revocation. The data you provide for the purpose of receiving the newsletter will be stored by us until you unsubscribe from the newsletter and will be deleted from both our servers and the servers of Inxmail after you unsubscribe from the newsletter. Data stored by us for other purposes (e.g., email addresses for the member’s only area) remain unaffected by this.

For further details, please refer to the data privacy information provided by Inxmail at: https://www.inxmail.com/data-conditions

 

11. Social media plugins

11.1 2-click solution
Our websites use social plugins of the providers listed below. The plugins can be recognized by the fact that they are marked with the appropriate logo.

These plugins may be used to send information, which may include personal information, to the service provider and may be used by the service provider. We prevent the unconscious and unwanted collection and transmission of data to the service provider through a 2-click solution. To activate a desired social plugin, it must first be activated by clicking on the corresponding button. This plugin needs to be activated before information is captured and sent to the service provider. We do not collect personal data by means of social plugins or their use.

We have no control over what data an enabled plugin collects and how it is used by the provider. At present, it must be assumed that a direct connection to the services of the provider will be expanded and at least the IP address and device-related information will be collected and used. It is also possible that the service providers try to save cookies on the computer used. Please refer to the privacy policy of the respective service provider to see which specific data are collected here and how they are used.

On our website, we have integrated the social media buttons of the following companies:
_ Facebook plugin
_ LinkedIn plugin

Our use of social media buttons is based on Article 6, Para 1, Clause 1, Point f GDPR. The underlying promotional purpose is to be regarded as a legitimate interest within the meaning of the GDPR.

Our activities on social network
So that we can also communicate with you in social networks and inform you about our services, we are represented there with our own pages. If you visit one of our social media pages, we are jointly responsible for the processing activities related to personal data which are thus initiated with the provider of the respective social media platform within the meaning of Art. 26 GDPR.

We are not the original provider of these pages, but only use them within the scope of the possibilities offered to us by the respective providers.

As a precautionary aside, we would therefore like to point out that your data may also be processed outside of the European Union or the European Economic Area. Use may therefore involve data protection risks for you, as it may be more difficult to protect your rights to notification, erasure, objection, etc. Also, data are often processed in social networks immediately for advertising purposes or to analyse user behaviour by the providers, without us being able to have any influence over it. If usage profiles are created by the provider, cookies are often used or the usage behaviour is directly assigned to your own user profile of the social networks (provided you are logged in).

The processing operations of personal data described above are carried out in accordance with Art. 6, Para 1, Point f GDPR on the basis of our legitimate interest and the legitimate interest of the respective provider in order to be able to communicate with you in a timely manner or to inform you about our services. If you have to give your consent to data processing as a user with the respective providers, the legal basis refers to Art. 6, Para 1, Point a GDPR in conjunction with Art. 7 GDPR.

As we do not have access to the providers' databases, we would like to point out that it is best to exercise your rights (to information, rectification, erasure, etc.) directly with the respective provider. We have listed further information on the processing of your data in the social networks and the possibility of making use of your right of objection or revocation (so-called opt-out) below at the respective provider of social networks used by us:

Privacy policy on use and integration of YouTube
The controller has integrated YouTube components on this website. YouTube is an Internet video portal that enables video publishers to post video clips free of charge and other users to view, rate and comment on them free of charge. YouTube allows the publication of all types of videos, which is why complete film and television programmes, but also music videos, trailers or videos created by users themselves can be accessed via the Internet portal.

YouTube is operated by YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. YouTube, LLC is a subsidiary of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

Each time the data subject accesses one of the individual pages of this website, which is operated by the data controller and on which a YouTube component (YouTube video) has been integrated, the Internet browser on the data subject’s computer system is automatically prompted by the respective YouTube component to download a display of the corresponding YouTube component from YouTube. More information about YouTube can be found at https://www.youtube.com/yt/about. As part of this technical process, YouTube and Google are informed which specific subpage of our website is visited by the data subject.

If the data subject is logged in to YouTube at the same time, YouTube will recognise which specific sub-page of our website the data subject is visiting when a sub-page containing a YouTube video is called up. This information is collected by YouTube and Google and assigned to the respective YouTube account of the data subject. YouTube and Google receive information through the YouTube component that the data subject has visited our website whenever the data subject is logged on to YouTube at the same time when they visit our website, regardless of whether or not the data subject clicks on a YouTube video. If the data subject does not want this information to be sent to YouTube and Google, they can prevent it from being sent by logging out of his or her YouTube account before visiting our website.

If the data subject does not want this information to be sent to YouTube and Google, they are free to prevent such data transfer by logging out of their YouTube account before accessing our website.

The privacy policy published by YouTube, which is available at https://www.google.de/intl/en/policies/privacy/, provides information about the collection, processing and use of personal data by YouTube and Google.

 

12. Web analytics

12.1 Google Analytics
On our websites we use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Ireland Limited (https://www.google.de/intl/en/about/) (Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland; hereinafter "Google").

This information may also be sent to third parties if this is legally permissible or if third parties process this data under contract. Your IP address is never merged with other Google data. IP addresses are anonymised such that no allocations can be made (IP masking).

You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser, however please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website.

These processing operations are solely carried out with your express prior consent in accordance with Article 6, Para 1, Point a GDPR.

You can prevent the data generated by the cookie relating to your use of the website (including your IP address) from being captured and processed by Google by downloading and installing a browser add-on
(https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de).

Alternatively, especially for browsers on mobile devices, you can also prevent the collection by Google Analytics by clicking on the following link: Disable Google Analytics. An opt-out cookie will be set to prevent your data from being collected on future visits to this site. The opt-out cookie is only valid in this browser and only for our website. It is stored on your device. If you delete the cookies in this browser, you must set the opt-out cookie again.

For more information about data protection and Google Analytics, you can refer to the Google Analytics Help

When exercising your right to data portability pursuant to Article 20, Para 1 GDPR, you have the right to have the personal data transmitted directly from one controller to another, where technically feasible, and where this does not adversely affect the rights and freedoms of others.

13.7 Right to object Article 21 GDPR
You have the right to object, on grounds relating to your particular situation, at any time to processing of personal data concerning you, which is based on Article 6, Para 1, Point e (data processing in the public interest) or Point f (data processing on the basis of a balance of interests) GDPR.

This also applies to profiling based on these provisions within the meaning of Article 4, No 4 GDPR.

If you object, we will no longer process your personal data unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds to do so which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or if the processing is for the purpose of asserting, exercising or defending legal claims.

In specific cases, we process personal data in order to carry out direct marketing. You may object to the processing of personal data for such marketing purposes at any time. This also applies to profiling insofar as it is connected with such direct marketing. Should you object to the processing of your data for direct marketing purposes, we will no longer process your personal data for such purposes.

In addition, you have the right to object, on grounds relating to your particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning you which is carried out by us for scientific or historical research purposes or statistical purposes pursuant to Article 89, Para 1 GDPR, unless such processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest.

In the context of the use of information society services, and notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC, you may exercise your right to object by automated means using technical specifications.

13.8 Right to revoke your consent

14. Routine storage, erasure and blocking of personal data

We process and store your personal data only for the period of time necessary to achieve the purpose of storage or where this is required by the legal provisions to which our company is subject.

15. Duration of the storage of personal data

The data collected shall be stored for as long as it is required for the purposes described, in other words, to satisfy the purpose for which they were collected. This means in particular that the personal data collected will be deleted after the contract has been completely fulfilled, provided that this does not conflict with any statutory or contractual retention periods. So if the data are no longer needed to communicate with you, to provide you with information, to maintain a business relationship with you or because there is a legal obligation to retain the data, the data will be deleted. In particular, the data will be erased if the above-mentioned reasons have ceased to exist and are not expected to occur again, if you assert your right to have your data deleted, or if the deletion of the data is required by law.
