1. Data protection at a glance
Data collection on this website
Who is responsible for the data collection on this website?
The data processing on this website is carried out by the website operator. The contact details can be found in the legal notice of this website.
How do we collect your data?
Your data is collected by you informing us of it. For example, this might be data that you enter in a contact form.
Other data is automatically collected through our IT system when you visit the website. This data is mainly technical in nature (e.g. internet browser, operating system or time of page view) and is collected automatically as soon as you access this website.
What do we use your data for?
Some of the data is collected to ensure a flawless provision of the website. Other data may be used to analyse your user behaviour.
What rights do you have with regard to your data?
You have the right to receive information about the origin, recipient and purpose of your stored personal data free of charge at any time. You also have the right to request the rectification or deletion of this data. You can contact us at any time at the address given in the legal notice for further questions on the subject of data protection. You also have the right to lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority.
Transfers to third countries
Data is processed in a third country (i.e. outside the European Union (EU), the European Economic Area (EEA) or the Swiss Confederation), or in the context of the use of third-party services or disclosure or transmission of data to other persons or companies, only to fulfil our (pre)contractual obligations, on the basis of your consent, on the basis of a legal obligation or on the basis of our legitimate interests. Subject to legal or contractual permits, we process or leave the data in a third country only if the legal requirements are met. This means, for example, that that the processing is carried out on the basis, of special guarantees, such as the officially recognised determination of an EU-compliant level of data protection (e.g. for the US by the “Privacy Shield”) or observance of officially recognised special contractual obligations.
Deletion of data
The data processed by us will be deleted or restricted in its processing in accordance with the legal requirements. Unless expressly stated in the context of this data protection declaration, the data stored by us will be deleted as soon as it is no longer necessary for its purpose and no legal retention obligations preclude deletion.
Unless the data is deleted because it is necessary for other and legally permissible purposes, its processing will be restricted. This means that the data will be blocked and not processed for other purposes. This applies, for example, to data that must be retained for commercial or tax reasons.
This website is hosted by an external service provider (host). The personal data collected on this website is stored on the host’s servers. This may include IP addresses, contact requests, meta and communication data, contract data, contact details, names, website accesses and other data generated through a website.
The host is used for the purpose of fulfilling the contract with our potential and existing customers (Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR) and in the interest of a secure, fast and efficient provision of our online offer by a professional provider (Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR).
Our host will process your data only to the extent necessary to fulfil its performance obligations and to follow our instructions with respect to this data.
Conclusion of a contract for order processing
In order to ensure data protection-compliant processing, we have concluded a contract for order processing with our host.
3. General notes and mandatory information
The operators of these sites take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the statutory data protection regulations and this data protection declaration.
We would like to point out that data transmission over the internet (e.g. when communicating via e-mail) may have security gaps. Complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.
The controller responsible for data processing on this website is:
Herrmann Motorenentwicklung GmbH, Hans-Birnbaum-Straße 16, 38229 Salzgitter, Germany
Phone: +49 (0) 5341 9392349 Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
The controller is the natural or legal person who decides, alone or together with others, on the purposes and means of processing personal data (e.g. names, e-mail addresses, etc.).
Withdrawal of your consent to data processing
Many data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. You can revoke your consent at any time. An informal communication by e-mail to us is sufficient. The legality of the data processing carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
Right of objection to data collection in special cases as well as direct marketing (Art. 21 GDPR)
You have the right to object, on grounds relating to your particular situation, at any time to processing of personal data concerning yourself which is based on point (e) or (f) of Art. 6 (1) GDPR, including profiling based on those provisions. We will no longer process the personal data unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims (objection in accordance with Art. 21 (1) GDPR).
Where personal data is processed for direct marketing purposes, you have the right to object at any time to processing of personal data concerning yourself for such marketing, which includes profiling to the extent that it is related to such direct marketing (objection in accordance with Art. (2) GDPR).
Right of appeal to the competent supervisory authority
In the event of infringements of the GDPR, the persons concerned shall have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the member state of their habitual residence, place of work or the place of alleged infringement. The right of appeal shall be without prejudice to other administrative or judicial remedies.
Right to data portability
You have the right to obtain data that we process automatically on the basis of your consent or in the performance of a contract, either ourselves or in cooperation with a third party, in a common, machine-readable format. If you request the direct transfer of the data to another controller, this is only done if technically feasible.
SSL or TLS encryption
For security reasons, and to protect the transmission of confidential content such as orders or requests that you send to us as a site operator, this site uses SSL or TLS encryption. You can recognise an encrypted connection by the fact that the address bar of the browser changes from “http://” to “https://” and by the lock icon in your browser line.
If SSL or TLS encryption is enabled, the data you submit to us cannot be read by third parties.
Information, deletion and correction
Within the scope of the applicable legal provisions, you have the right to free information about your stored personal data, its origin and recipient, and the purpose of the data processing. If applicable, you also have a right to rectification or deletion of this data. You can contact us at any time at the address given in the legal notice for further questions on the subject of personal data.
Right to restrict processing
You have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data. To do this, you can contact us at any time at the address given in the legal notice. The right to restrict processing exists in the following cases:
If you dispute the accuracy of your personal data stored by us, we usually need time to verify this. For the duration of the examination, you have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data. If the processing of your personal data is done/happens illegally, you can request the restriction of the data processing instead of the deletion.
If we no longer need your personal data, but you need it to exercise, defend or assert legal claims, you have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data instead of deletion.
If you object under Art. 21 (4) (1) GDPR, a balance must be made between your and our interests. As long as it is not clear whose interests prevail, you have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data.
If you have restricted the processing of your personal data, such data may only be used with your consent or for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of an important public interest in the European Union or of a member state.
Objection to promotional emails
The use of contact data published within the scope of the legal notice for sending unsolicited advertising and information materials is hereby objected to. The operators of the pages expressly reserve the right to take legal action in the event of unsolicited sending of advertising information, e.g. by spam emails.
4. Data collection on this website
If you send us enquiries via the contact form, your details from the request form, including the contact details you provide there, will be stored with us for the purpose of processing the request and in case of follow-up questions. We do not share this data without your consent.
The processing of this data is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 (4) (b) GDPR if your request is related to the performance of a contract or is necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures. In all other cases, the processing is based on our legitimate interest in the effective processing of the enquiries addressed to us (Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR) or on your consent (Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR) if this has been requested.
The data you enter in the contact form will remain with us until you ask us to delete it, revoke your consent to storage or the purpose for the data storage is no longer applicable (e.g. after your request has been processed). Mandatory legal provisions, in particular retention periods, remain unaffected.
Request by email, telephone or fax
If you contact us by email, telephone or fax, your request, including all resulting personal data (name, request) for the purpose of processing your request, will be stored and processed by us. We do not share this data without your consent.
The processing of this data is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 (4) (b) GDPR if your request is related to the performance of a contract or is necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures. In all other cases, the processing is based on your consent (Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR) and/or on our legitimate interests (Art. 6 6 (1) (f) GDPR), as we have a legitimate interest in the effective handling of the requests addressed to us.
The data sent by you to us by contact enquiries shall remain with us until you ask us to delete it, revoke your consent to storage or the purpose for data storage is no longer applicable (e.g. after your request has been processed). Mandatory legal provisions, in particular statutory retention periods, remain unaffected.
5. Plugins and tools
YouTube with enhanced privacy
This website includes videos from YouTube. The site is operated by Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.
We use YouTube in advanced privacy mode. According to YouTube, this mode prevents YouTube from storing information about visitors to this website before they watch the video. On the other hand, the extended data protection mode does not necessarily exclude the transfer of data to YouTube partners. This allows YouTube to connect to the Google DoubleClick network, regardless of whether you’re watching a video.
Once you start a YouTube video on this website, a connection to the YouTube servers is established. The YouTube server will be informed which of our pages you have visited. If you are logged into your YouTube account, you allow YouTube to associate your browsing behaviour directly with your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account.
In addition, YouTube can store various cookies on your device after starting a video. With the help of these cookies, YouTube can obtain information about visitors to this website. This information is used, among other things, to collect video statistics, improve usability and prevent fraud. The cookies remain on your device until you delete them.
If necessary, after starting a YouTube video, further data processing operations may be triggered over which we have no influence.
The use of YouTube is in the interest of an appealing presentation of our online offers. This constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 (4) (f) GDPR. If a corresponding consent has been requested (e.g. consent to the storage of cookies), the processing is carried out exclusively on the basis of Art. 1 (a) GDPR; consent can be revoked at any time.
Google Web Fonts
This page uses web fonts provided by Google to display fonts in a consistent way. When you visit a page, your browser loads the required web fonts into its browser cache to display texts and fonts correctly.
For this purpose, the browser you are using must connect to Google’s servers. This will make Google aware that this website has been accessed via your IP address. The use of Google Web Fonts is in the interest of a uniform and appealing presentation of our online offers. This constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 (4) (f) GDPR.
If your browser does not support web fonts, a default font will be used by your computer.
Google Maps (with consent)
This website uses the map service Google Maps via an API. The provider is Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.
To ensure privacy on this website, Google Maps is disabled the first time you enter this website. A direct connection to Google’s servers is only established if you activate Google Maps independently (consent according to Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR). This prevents your data from being transferred to Google the first time you enter the site.
Once activated, Google Maps will store your IP address. This is then usually transferred to a Google server in the US and stored there. The provider of this page has no influence on this data transfer after activating Google Maps.
