As the company responsible for the web pages, HELLA GmbH & Co. KGaA, Rixbecker Straße 75, 59552 Lippstadt takes the issue of protecting personal information very seriously. Data protection and information security are part of our company policy. Accordingly, protecting your privacy when processing personal data and the security of all commercial information is an important matter for us, which we observe in our business processes. We treat personal information collected during your visit to our website confidentially and only use it in accordance with legal regulations.
Our web pages may contain links to third-party providers to which this statement on data protection does not apply. We have no influence on whether the administrators of these web pages maintain and uphold the relevant data protection regulations.
Personal data is information that can be used to learn about your identity. This includes your name, address, postal address and phone number. Information that cannot be associated with your identity, such as the number of users on a website, is not considered personal data.
Whenever you visit our website, we save the name of your internet service provider, the browser type used, the website from which you visit ours, the web pages that you visit while on our website and the date and duration of your visit. No other personal information is stored. You can therefore use our website without having to disclose your identity.
When you visit special areas of our website or participate in certain campaigns, additional data may be collected and saved. Personal data may need to be entered in order to participate in a survey, forward an inquiry, or process a contract.
Specifying personal data is voluntary. When you submit a query using one of our contact forms or via e-mail, we save the data that you provide about yourself in order to facilitate individual communication with you and to process your query.
We use your personal data to technically manage our websites and marketing to the extent required for each specific case only. We will never transmit your data to third parties outside BitSTRICT & HELLA GmbH & Co. KGaA without your consent, especially with regards to marketing purposes.
We will transmit your data to authorities entitled to request such information to the extent that this is required by law or has been mandated by a court order.
So that our operations are correctly and appropriately managed, carefully selected staff from BitSTRICT & HELLA GmbH & Co. KGaA also have access to your data. The data cannot be used by these members of staff for their own purposes. The employees tasked with managing this data shall undertake to uphold confidentiality and data secrecy. Moreover, an acceptable level of data protection is guaranteed at all times.
