5. Use of Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. ("Google").


We use Google Analytics to analyse and regularly improve the use of our website. We can use the statistics obtained to improve our offer and make it more interesting for you as a user.
Google Analytics uses cookies, i.e. text files which are stored on your computer and which enable an analysis of your use of the website.


Google also processes your personal data in the USA. Before you give your consent in accordance with Art. 49 Para. 1 letter a DS-GVO, we would like to point out in particular that in the USA there may not be an adequate level of data protection without a decision on appropriateness and without suitable guarantees, as data protection laws do not comply with the provisions of the DS-GVO, and in particular the rights of data subjects may not be enforceable.

Cookies are only set if you give us your consent. The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a DS-GVO ("Consent"). This consent is voluntary. You can refuse it without giving reasons. You can revoke this consent at any time without fear of disadvantages. We would like to point out, however, that if you do not give your consent or if you revoke your consent, you may not be able to use all the functions of this website to their full extent.

The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, in the event that IP anonymization is activated on this website, your IP address will be shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area before this happens. This website uses Google Analytics with the extension "_anonymizeIp()". This means that IP addresses are further processed in a shortened form, thus excluding the possibility of personal references. If the data collected about you contains a personal reference, this is immediately excluded and the personal data is immediately deleted. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there.

On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on the website activities and to provide further services to the website operator in connection with the use of the website and the Internet.

The IP address transmitted by your browser within the scope of Google Analytics is not combined with other data from Google.

For the exceptional cases in which personal data is transferred to the USA, Google has subjected itself to the EU-US Privacy Shield, www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework.

Third party information: Google Dublin, Google Ireland Ltd, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland, Fax: +353 (1) 436 1001. terms of use: www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html, overview of data protection: www.google.com/intl/de/analytics/learn/privacy.html, and the privacy policy: www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy.

6. DoubleClick by Google

This website uses the online marketing tool DoubleClick by Google. DoubleClick uses cookies to serve ads relevant to users, to improve campaign performance reports, or to prevent a user from seeing the same ads more than once. Google uses a cookie ID to help identify which ads are shown in which browser, and to prevent them from being shown more than once. DoubleClick may also use cookie IDs to track conversions related to ad requests. For example, when a user sees a DoubleClick ad and then visits the advertiser's site on the same browser to make a purchase. According to Google, DoubleClick cookies do not contain any personally identifiable information.

Google also processes your personal data in the USA. Before giving your consent in accordance with Art. 49 Para. 1 letter a DS-GVO, we would like to point out in particular that in the USA, without an adequacy finding and without suitable guarantees, there may not be an adequate level of data protection, as data protection laws do not comply with the provisions of the DS-GVO, and in particular the rights of data subjects may not be enforceable.

The above will only take place if you give us your consent. The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a DS-GVO ("Consent"). This consent is voluntary. You can refuse it without giving reasons. You can revoke this consent at any time without fear of disadvantages.

Due to the marketing tools used, your browser will establish a direct connection with the Google server if you have given your voluntary consent. We have no influence on the scope and further use of the data collected by Google through the use of this tool and therefore inform you according to our state of knowledge: Through the integration of DoubleClick, Google receives the information that you have called up the corresponding part of our website or clicked on an advertisement from us. If you are registered with a Google service, Google can assign the visit to your account. Even if you are not registered with Google or have not logged in, it is possible that the provider will find out and save your IP address.

In addition to refusing your voluntary consent, you can alternatively prevent participation in this tracking procedure in various other ways: a) by making appropriate settings in your browser software, in particular by suppressing third-party cookies so that you do not receive third-party ads; b) by deactivating cookies for conversion tracking by setting your browser to refuse cookies from the domain "www. googleadservices.com" domain, www.google.de/settings/ads, this setting being cleared when you delete your cookies; c) by disabling interest-based ads from the providers that are part of the "About Ads" self-regulatory campaign via the link www.aboutads.info/choices, this setting being cleared when you delete your cookies; d) by permanently disabling them in your browser via the link www.google.com/settings/ads/plugin. We would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all functions of this offer to their full extent.

Further information about DoubleClick by Google can be found at www.google.de/doubleclick and support.google.com/adsense/answer/2839090, as well as general information about Google's privacy policy: www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy. Alternatively, you can visit the website of the Network Advertising Initiative (NAI) at www.networkadvertising.org.

7. Google tag manager

This website uses the Google Tag Manager from Google. Google Tag Manager is a solution that allows marketers to manage website tags through one interface. The Tag Manager tool itself (which implements the tags) is a cookie-less domain and does not collect any personal information. The tool triggers other tags, which in turn may collect data. Google Tag Manager does not access this data. If disabled at the domain or cookie level, it remains disabled for all tracking tags implemented with Google Tag Manager.

Google also processes your personal data in the USA. Before you give your consent in accordance with Art. 49 Para. 1 letter a DS-GVO, we would like to point out in particular that in the USA there may not be an adequate level of data protection without a decision on adequacy and without suitable guarantees, as data protection laws do not comply with the provisions of the DS-GVO and in particular the rights of data subjects may not be enforceable.

8. CAPTCHA

We use CAPTCHA, which protects our website from spam and abuse. CAPTCHA prevents automated software (so-called bots) from carrying out abusive activities on the website, i.e. it checks whether the entries made are actually from a human being. To determine this, the following data is collected and processed:

- Referrer (address of the page on which the captcha is used)

- IP address of the user

- Google Account (if the user is logged in at Google, this will be recognized and assigned)

- Input behaviour of the user (e.g. answering the CAPTCHA question, input speed into the form fields, order of selection of input fields by the user)

- Browser, browser size and resolution, browser plugins, date, language setting

- Presentation instructions (CSS) and scripts (Javascript) of the website

- Mouse or touch events within the page

The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 letter f DS-GVO ("legitimate interest").

9. no social plugins

We do not use social plugins. We only use links to our social media sites.

10. Storelocator

Our website uses a store locator so that you can quickly find our products at a dealer near you.

We use Google Maps from Google Inc. to do this, which allows us to display interactive maps directly on the website and allows you to use the map function to find the nearest retailer based on your location for our products.

When you visit our site, no personal data is initially disclosed to the provider. We provide you with the opportunity to communicate directly with the provider via our map. Only if you give your consent will the provider receive the information that you have visited the corresponding website of our online offer. In addition, the data mentioned in the section "Collection of personal data when visiting our website" of this statement will be transmitted. This happens regardless of whether Google provides a user account through which you are logged in or whether no user account exists. If you are logged in at Google, your data will be assigned directly to your account. If you do not want the assignment with your profile at Google, you have to log out before activating the button. Google stores your data as user profiles and uses them for the purpose of advertising, market research and/or demand-oriented design of its website. Such an evaluation is carried out in particular (even for users who are not logged in) to provide need-based advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, whereby you must contact Google to exercise this right.

Google also processes your personal data in the USA. Before giving your consent in accordance with Art. 49 Para. 1 letter a DS-GVO, we would like to point out in particular that in the USA, without an adequacy finding and without suitable guarantees, there may not be an adequate level of data protection, as data protection laws do not comply with the provisions of the DS-GVO, and in particular the rights of data subjects may not be enforceable.

Further information on the purpose and scope of data collection and processing can be found in the provider's data protection declarations. There you will also find further information on your rights and settings to protect your privacy: www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy.

 

11. Further functions and offers of our website

In addition to the purely informative use of our website, we offer various services which you can use if you are interested. For this purpose, you will generally have to provide additional personal data which we use to provide the respective service and to which the aforementioned data processing principles apply.

In some cases we use external service providers to process your data. These have been carefully selected by us, checked and commissioned with regard to the data protection standards applicable there, are bound by our instructions and are checked regularly.

Furthermore, we may pass on your personal data to third parties if contracts or similar services are offered by us together with partners. You will receive more detailed information on this when you provide your personal data or in the description of the offer.

If our service providers or partners are based in a country outside the European Economic Area (EEA), we will inform you about the consequences of this circumstance in the description of the offer.

 

12. Objection or revocation against the processing of your data

If you have given your consent to process your data, you can revoke it at any time. Such revocation will affect the permissibility of processing your personal data after you have given it to us.

Insofar as we base the processing of your personal data on the weighing of interests, you may object to the processing. This is the case if the processing is in particular not necessary for the fulfilment of a contract with you. In the event of such an objection, please explain the reasons why we should not process your personal data as we have done. In the event of your justified objection, we will examine the facts of the case and will either stop or adapt the data processing or show you our compelling reasons worthy of protection on the basis of which we will continue the processing.

Of course, you can object to the processing of your personal data for advertising and data analysis purposes at any time. You can inform us about your objection to advertising at the following contact details: datenschutz[at]wegmann-automotive.com.

 

13. Recipient of the data

We transmit your data to the specialist departments within Wegmann as far as this is necessary.

The basis of authorization for any further data transfer within the group is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f DS-GVO ("legitimate interest"). According to this, data processing is lawful if the processing is necessary to safeguard our legitimate interests, provided that the interests or fundamental rights of the data subject do not outweigh these. In the recitals to the DS-GVO, Recital 48 specifies the legitimate interest in transfer within a group of companies. According to this, transfer within a group of companies for internal administrative purposes with regard to the processing of customer data must be qualified as a legitimate interest on our part within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. f DS-GVO.

In some cases we use external service providers to process your data. These have been carefully selected and commissioned by us, are bound by our instructions and are regularly checked. All requirements of Art. 28 DS-GVO are observed.

 

14. Place of data processing measures

All processing of your personal data takes place either in Germany or in member states of the European Union. Your personal data will not be transferred by us to countries outside the member states of the European Union (so-called third countries) or to other international organizations, unless otherwise stated in this document.

If we transfer personal data to service providers outside the EU, this will only take place if the third country has been confirmed by the EU Commission as having an adequate level of data protection or if other appropriate data protection guarantees (e.g. binding internal company data protection regulations or an agreement on the standard contractual clauses of the EU Commission) are in place or the consent of the person concerned has been obtained (Art. 44 ff. DS-GVO).

 

15. Security / technical and organizational measures

We meet all necessary technical and organizational requirements

 

16. Change of the privacy policy

The content of our privacy policy is regularly reviewed.
