3. Collection, Processing and Use of Personal Data

We only collect and use personal data of our users insofar as this is necessary to provide a functional website as well as to provide our contents and services. The collection and use of our users' personal data is regularly only carried out with the user's consent. An exception applies in those cases where prior consent cannot be obtained for valid reasons and the processing of the data is permitted by law.

Legal basis for the storage of data is Art. 6 para. 1 cont. of the EU-GDPR.

When you visit our website, we collect, process and use certain data for precisely defined purposes. The data that we regularly collect and process during your visit to our website includes the name of your Internet Service Provider (ISP), the website through which you visit us, the websites of SEEBURGER AG that you have viewed, websites which you visit from the SEEBURGER website, your IP address and the date and duration of your visit. We process this data in a non-personalized form and store and analyze it exclusively for statistical purposes so that we can continuously improve our websites and our range of products and services.

We only collect personal data if you voluntarily provide it to us, for example as part of your registration for newsletters, events, product information or for processing other inquiries addressed to us. This is data that you enter using the forms we provide so that we can interact with you. We use this data exclusively to respond to your inquiries and to inform you as required about our product and service offerings. In addition, we use the data to provide you with personalized information through various communication channels, if you have given us your prior consent (for example, when registering for our newsletter).

Insofar as we involve third parties in the context of the collection, processing and use of your data as a service provider for SEEBURGER AG, we limit the disclosure to the data to the extent which is necessary for the delivery of the service ordered by us. In doing so, we will commit the respective service provider in writing to use your data exclusively on our behalf and exclusively in the context of the purpose agreed between you and us. Furthermore, the respective service providers are obliged by us to respect data privacy and are not authorized to disclose your data or to use it for purposes other than the ones assigned by us.

The personal data of the person concerned will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage ceases to apply.

SEEBURGER uses services of Marketo EMEA Limited, Cairn House South County Business Park, Leopardstown, Dublin 18 Ireland (‘Marketo’), such as sending our newsletter, invitations to webinars and events as well as downloading information about our company and products (‘digital services’).

When sending emails, Marketo evaluates your user behavior on our behalf. For this evaluation, the e-mails sent contain so-called web beacons, also known as tracking pixels. These single-pixel image files allow us to track your user behavior.

We record when you read our emails, which links you click in them and draw conclusions about your personal interests. We link this data to actions carried out by you on our website (see also Section 7.2). Marketo stores the information collected in this way on its server in the European Union or the European Economic Area (EU or EEA). Tracking is not possible if you have disabled the display of images in your e-mail program by default. If you display the images manually, the above tracking takes place.

If you use one of our digital services for which you have completed the registration process (for example, our newsletter), Marketo will also assist us in analyzing your usage behavior on our website. For this purpose, a text file (cookie, see also paragraph 5) is stored on your computer, which enables us to recognize you the next time you visit our website.

 

7.2 Purpose of data processing
We analyze how you use our website and other digital content such as videos, banners and downloads posted on our website. This allows us to tailor our offers to your individual needs, so that you receive less randomly distributed offers overall. We use the data obtained in this way to provide you with our digital services tailored to your interests.

 

7.3 Duration of storage
The cookie on your machine expires after 24 months. You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser.
