MANN+HUMMEL - Data Protection

Thank you for visiting our website and your interest in our company. The protection of your personal data is an important concern for us. For this reason, compliance with the strict legal provisions on data protection is a matter of course for us. Data protection begins with transparency. It is therefore our concern that you should always know when we store which of your personal data, for what purpose we use it, but also how you can restrict or prevent its use. Our data protection regulations are designed in such a way that they comply with the applicable data protection laws.

III. Legal basis for the processing

Personal data is only collected, processed and used by us if we are legally permitted to do so or if you have given your consent.

Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for the processing of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1a EU Data Protection Basic Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis for the processing of personal data.

When processing personal data which is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Art. 6 para. 1b GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations which are necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures.

Insofar as the processing of personal data is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 para. 1c GDPR serves as the legal basis. As a company, we are subject, for example, to statutory storage obligations under the AO and the HGB.

If vital interests of the data subject or another natural person require the processing of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1d GDPR serves as the legal basis.

If the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the former interest, Art. 6 para. 1f GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing.

IV. Recipient of the data

As a matter of principle, we only process personal data if we have your consent or legal permission to do so. This also applies to the transfer of data to third parties. We do not pass on your personal data to third parties for direct marketing purposes.

Your data will be processed and used within the EU/EEA. However, for certain processes, processing outside the EU/EEA is also necessary. If your data is processed outside the EU/EEA, we will take all necessary measures to ensure that the processing complies with data protection regulations in accordance with Art. 44 GDPR. We may share your personal information with the following recipients in accordance with applicable data protection laws and regulations:

  • to third parties who assist us in operating the website
  • within the MANN+HUMMEL Group
  • within the framework of a valid legal procedure

We also take appropriate technical and organizational measures to protect personal data from theft, other loss, misuse and any unauthorized access during processing.

V. Your rights

Right of appeal to the supervisory authority
Irrespective of another regulatory or judicial redress, you have the right to file a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the member state where you are a resident, where your workplace is, or where the presumed infringement has taken place when you are of the opinion that the processing of your personal data violates the GDPR.

The supervisory authority to which the complaint is filed, advises the complainant about the status and the results of the complaint including the possibility of legal action acc. to Art. 78 GDPR.

Under Art. 77 GDPR, you are free to choose the supervisory authority. For example, you can address your complaint to the supervisory authority of the state of Baden-Württemberg which is responsible for MANN+HUMMEL GmbH.

Adobe Analytics
This website uses Adobe Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Adobe Systems Software Ireland Limited, 4-6 Riverwalk, Citywest Business Campus, Dublin 24, Ireland ("Adobe"). Adobe Analytics uses "cookies", which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. If the information generated by the cookie about your use of the website is transmitted to an Adobe server, the settings ensure that the IP address is anonymised before geolocation and replaced by a generic IP address before being saved.

On our website Java-Script code of the company Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (hereinafter: Google) is loaded. If you have activated Java-Script in your browser and have not installed a Java-Script blocker, your browser may transmit personal data to Google. To prevent the execution of Java-Script code from Google altogether, you can install a Java-Script blocker (e.g. www.noscript.net or www.ghostery.com).

Google Ads
We use the service Google Ads. Google Ads is an online advertising program of Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. The responsible party for users in the EU/EEA and Switzerland is Google Ireland Limited, Google Building Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland.

This means that we place Google Ads and also use Google Remarketing and Conversion Tracking as part of this. The ads are displayed after search queries on websites of the Google advertising network. In addition, we use Ads remarketing lists for search ads. This allows us to customize search ad campaigns for users who have visited our website before. Through the services, we have the possibility to combine our ads with certain search terms or to display ads for previous visitors in which, for example, services are advertised that the visitors have viewed on our website. We can thus display interest-based advertising to users of our website on other websites within the Google advertising network (as a "Google ad" within Google Search or on other websites).

For interest-based offers, an analysis of online user behavior is necessary. Google uses cookies to perform this analysis. When clicking on an advertisement or visiting our website, a cookie is set on the user's computer by Google. These cookies have a term of 90 days. The information collected by means of the respective cookie is used to target the visitor in a subsequent search query. Further information on the cookie technology used can also be found in Google's notes on website statistics and in the privacy policy. With the help of this technology, Google and we as a customer receive information about the fact that a user has clicked on an advertisement and has been redirected to our web pages. The information obtained in this way is used exclusively for statistical evaluation for ad optimization. We do not receive any information with which visitors can be personally identified. Your IP address is transmitted to Google, but since we use Google Analytics IP masking on this website, your IP address is anonymized. The statistics provided to us by Google include the total number of users who clicked on one of our ads and, if applicable, whether they were redirected to a page on our website that is tagged with a conversion tag. Based on these statistics, we can track which search terms were clicked on our ad particularly often and which ads lead to the user contacting us via the contact form.

Insofar as data is processed outside the EEA, where there is no level of data protection corresponding to the European standard, we have concluded EU standard contractual clauses with the service provider to establish a secure level of data protection.
You can find more information on data protection in the context of Google Ads at: https://policies.google.com/technologies/ads?hl=de.

The legal basis for accessing the information is your consent pursuant to Section 25 (1) TDDDG. The legal basis for data processing is your consent pursuant to Art. 6 para 1 lit. a GDPR. You can revoke your consent at any time.

If you do not want your visit to be included in the user statistics, you can prevent this by preventing the storage of the cookie required for these technologies, for example, via your browser settings.

You also have the option of selecting the types of Google ads or deactivating interest-based ads on Google via the ad setting. Alternatively, you can disable the use of cookies by third parties by calling the deactivation help of the network advertising initiative.

However, we and Google still receive statistical information about how many users have visited this site and when. If you do not want to be included in these statistics either, you can prevent this by using additional programs for your browser.

Google ReCaptcha

To ensure sufficient data security when transmitting contact and registration forms, we use the Google ReCaptcha service.  The provider is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA ("Google"). Google ReCaptcha is used on our website to differentiate whether the input into forms is made by a natural person or abusively by machine and automated processing. The data processing is carried out in our legitimate interest in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1f GDPR. The Google service includes the processing of IP addresses and, if applicable, other data required by Google for the ReCaptcha service. The deviating data protection regulations of Google Inc. apply to this. Further information on the data protection guidelines of Google Inc. can be found at www.google.de/intl/de/privacy or www.google.com/intl/de/policies/privacy/.

Google Maps Plug-In
Our website uses the Google Maps service to enable you to find and view MANN+HUMMEL locations. Google Maps is a map service of Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

In order to use the functions of Google Maps, information, including the IP address and the address entered as part of the route function, may be transferred to the provider's servers. This information is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. When you visit a website that contains Google Maps, your browser establishes a direct connection with the Google servers, whereby the map content is sent to your browser and integrated by it. The provider of this site has no influence on this data transfer. According to current knowledge, this includes the following data:

  • Date and time of your visit to the website in question,
  • Internet address or URL of the web page called up,
  • IP address, (start) address entered during route planning

For the use of Google Maps your consent is required in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1a GDPR. Only then can our online offers be used without restriction. If you no longer wish data processing by Google via this service after your consent, you can deactivate the use of JavaScript in your browser settings. Please note that in this case the interactive map function of Google Maps is no longer or only partially usable.

You can find more information on the handling of user data in Google's privacy policy: https://policies.google.com/privacy/.

Meta Conversion Tracking Pixel
We use the Custom Audiences service of Meta Platforms Ireland Limited, 4 Grand Canal Square, Dublin 2, Ireland, as part of our usage-based online advertising. For this purpose, we define target groups of users based on certain characteristics in the Meta ad manager, who are subsequently shown ads within Facebook or Instagram network. Users are selected by Meta based on the profile information they provide and other data provided through their use of Facebook or Instagram. If a user clicks on an advertisement and subsequently arrives on our website, Meta receives the information that the user clicked on the social media post via the meta pixel embedded on our website.

Basically, this generates a non-reversible and non-personal checksum (hash value) from your usage data, which is transmitted to Meta for analysis and marketing purposes. In the process, information about your activities on our website (e.g. surfing behavior, sub-pages visited, etc.) is collected. Meta uses your IP address to geographically restrict social media action posts.

Meta Custom Audiences can be used and after the filter test campaign to play out posts targeted to Facebook and Instagram profiles that had interacted with the action content.

For more information about the purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Meta, as well as your settings options for protecting your privacy, please refer to Meta's privacy policy at the following link https://www.facebook.com/policy.php.

You can make settings regarding which advertisements are displayed to you on Facebook or Instagram in the account settings of Facebook or Instagram.
The meta pixel is only set with your consent. The legal basis for accessing the information is your consent pursuant to Section 25 (1) TDDDG. The legal basis for data processing is your consent pursuant to Art. 6 para 1 lit. a GDPR. You can revoke your consent at any time.

LinkedIn Insight Tag
We use the Insight Tag service of LinkedIn Corp. (LinkedIn Corporation, 1000 West Maude Avenue, Sunnyvale CA 94085, USA or LinkedIn Ireland Unlimited Company, Wilton Place, Dublin 2, Ireland) as part of our usage-based online advertising. Using this technology, we can generate reports on the performance of our advertisements as well as information on website interaction. For this purpose, the LinkedIn Insight Tag is embedded on this website, which establishes a connection to the LinkedIn server when you visit this website. We process your data to evaluate campaigns and collect information about website visitors who may have reached us through our campaigns on LinkedIn.
