Protection of data privacy: Your right—our obligation
You can count on us to protect the privacy of your personal data because protecting your privacy when we process your data is a matter of importance to Röhm Gmbh that is taken into consideration in all of our business processes. We’d therefore like to take this opportunity to explain to you the guidelines that we apply to the processing of personal data. The present declaration and any further information that may be pertinent to the processing and use of your personal data will be provided at any location on this site where we ask you to supply such data.
Scope of processing personal data
As a general rule, we only collect and utilize your personal data to the extent that is necessary for providing a functional website and our content and services. The collection and utilization of personal data generally only occurs with the user’s consent. Exceptions apply in cases where obtaining consent is impossible for factual reasons and where data processing is permitted by law.
Legal basis for processing personal data
To the extent we obtain the consent of the data subject for processing personal data, Art. 6 (1) (a), EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis for processing personal data.
With regard to processing personal data that is required for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is party, Art. 6 (1) (b), GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing steps that are necessary for carrying out pre-contractual measures.
To the extent processing personal data is required for compliance with legal obligations to which our company is subject, Art 6 (1) (c), GDPR serves as the legal basis.
In the event that the vital interests of the data subject or of another natural person require processing personal data, Art 6 (1) (d) GDPR serves as the legal basis.
If processing is required for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by our company or by a third party and the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not override such interests, Art. 6 (1) (f), GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing.
Collecting of technical access data
For technical reasons, in particular to ensure a secure and stable Internet presence, data is transmitted to us or to our web space provider via your Internet browser. With these so-called server log files, the type and version of your Internet browser, the operating system, the website from which you switched to our Internet presence (referrer URL), the website(s) of our Internet presence that you visit, the date and time of the respective access and the IP address of the Internet connection from which the use of our Internet presence takes place are collected.
This data will be stored temporarily, but not together with other data from you.
The legal basis for the temporary storage of data is Art. 6(1) (f), GDPR. The temporary storage of data, including the IP address, by the system is necessary to allow for delivery of the website to the user’s computer. For this purpose, the IP address of the user and other data must remain saved for the duration of the session.
The legal basis for processing personal data is Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR in the case, that you give your consent. Otherwise the legal basis for processing personal data together with the use of technically necessary cookies is Art. 6(1) (f), GDPR.
Further information concerning the terms and conditions of use and data privacy can be found at http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/gb.html or at http://www.google.com/intl/en_uk/analytics/privacyoverview.html.
Please note that on this website, Google Analytics code is supplemented by “gat._anonymizeIp();” to ensure an anonymized collection of IP addresses (so called IP-masking)
Google Adwords and Conversion Tracking
In our internet presence we use the advertising component Google AdWords and conversion tracking. This service is provided by Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereinafter referred to as "Google".
Through certification according to the EU-US Privacy Shield
Google guarantees that the data protection requirements of the EU will also be complied with when processing data in the USA.
We use conversion tracking for targeted advertising of our services. The legal basis is Art. 6(1) (f), GDPR. Our legitimate interest lies in the analysis, optimisation and economic operation of our Internet presence.
If you click on an advertisement placed by Google, the conversion tracking we use saves a cookie on your terminal device. These conversion cookies lose their validity after 30 days and do not serve your personal identification.
If the cookie is still valid and you visit a certain page of our website, both we and Google can evaluate that you have clicked on one of our ads placed with Google and that you have subsequently been forwarded to our website.
Google uses the information collected in this way to compile statistics on visits to our website. It also provides us with information about the number of users who clicked on our ad(s) and the pages of our website that were subsequently accessed. Neither we nor third parties who also use Google AdWords will be able to identify you in this way.
You can also prevent or restrict the installation of cookies by making the appropriate settings in your Internet browser. At the same time, you can delete cookies that have already been saved at any time. However, the steps and measures required for this depend on the Internet browser you are using. If you have any questions, please use the help function or documentation of your Internet browser or contact its manufacturer or support.
Google also offers information on data protection in particular on the possibilities of preventing the use of data.
We collect, process and utilize your personal data only if you provide us with it voluntarily.
This can occur in connection with a query, an opinion survey, a desire on your part to contact us, an order placed by you, etc. We also require your personal data when you wish to make use of particular services (insofar as such services may be offered) on the Röhm Gmbh website such as the newsletter or forums. Should you decide to avail yourself of such a service, you will find for each service extensive information and pointers about the type, scope and utilization of the data that is required in order to use the service in question.
Protecting the privacy of children who use the internet
Personal data pertaining to children are not knowingly gathered or used in any way. We are not generally aware of the age of the user of our websites. We have, however, taken no specific steps to give special protection to such data. As protecting children who use the internet is a matter of great importance to Röhm Gmbh. Röhm Gmbh therefore advises all parents and persons acting in loco parentis to show children how to deal responsibly and safely with personal data on the internet. Children should not send any personal data to Röhm Gmbh without the express permission of parents or a person acting in loco parentis.
How we use your data
Röhm Gmbh collects, processes and utilizes all personal data stemming from your visit to the Röhm Gmbh website strictly in accordance with the applicable legal regulations. We use this personal data only for the purposes specified in the present declaration (e.g., to process a query or in connection with the utilization of internet services). In addition, we will only gather, process or use personal data if you have given us your consent or we need to do so in order to protect the legitimate business interests of Röhm Gmbh.
Röhm Gmbh will not provide third parties with any personal data that you may have sent without first obtaining your express written permission.
You can withdraw the consent you gave to use your personal data at any time with future effect by sending an email to the email address provided in the Legal Notice or to the data protection officer. We retain control over and take responsibility for the use of the personal data that you send to us. It is possible that some or all of this data is stored or processed in other countries (for example in the United States) that have different data protection laws from your country of residence. In this case, we will ensure that the company commissioned to process the data has taken appropriate steps to protect your personal data in accordance with the requirements applicable in your country of residence.
Information, changes and deletions with respect to your data
Pursuant to the applicable legal regulations, you are entitled to query us in writing at any time as to which (if any) of your personal data we are currently archiving. We will then send you a letter containing the information requested. Please address your inquiry to the data protection officer. You may also arrange with him to have changes made in your data or to have such data deleted.
Storing your data
The personal data of the data subject will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage no longer applies. Furthermore, storage may occur if required by European or national laws in EU directives, laws or other regulations to which the controller is subject. Data will also be blocked or deleted if the storage period specified in one of the above-referenced standards expires unless there is a need for further storage of data for concluding a contract or for contract performance.
Protecting your data
Any data provided by you to Röhm Gmbh will be protected by suitable technical and organizational mechanisms against adventitious or intentional manipulation, loss or destruction, access by unauthorized persons, and against unauthorized disclosure to third parties. With this goal in mind, our security measures are continually monitored and enhanced in accordance with technological advances and organizational resources.
Use of social plugins
Our website does not use any plugins for social networks. When integrating the icons of social networks such as Facebook, Twitter, XING, and LinkedIn, we only make reference to these networks with an external link. In some cases, the link takes you to a share function of the network in question. This means that you can share our website, which you called up, with other users directly using the page of the social network to which the sharing button belongs.
