Analysis tools and tools provided by third parties

There is a pos­si­bi­li­ty that your brow­sing pat­terns will be sta­tis­ti­cal­ly ana­ly­sed when your visit our website. Such ana­ly­ses are per­for­med pri­ma­ri­ly with cookies and with what we refer to as ana­ly­sis pro­gram­mes. As a rule, the ana­ly­ses of your brow­sing pat­terns are con­duc­ted anony­mous­ly; i.e. the brow­sing pat­terns cannot be traced back to you. You have the option to object to such ana­ly­ses or you can prevent their per­for­mance by not using certain tools. For detail­ed infor­ma­ti­on about this, please consult our Data Pro­tec­tion Decla­ra­ti­on below.

You do have the option to object to such ana­ly­ses. We will brief you on the objec­tion options in this Data Pro­tec­tion Declaration.

2. General information and mandatory information

Data protection

The ope­ra­tors of this website and its pages take the pro­tec­tion of your per­so­nal data very serious­ly. Hence, we handle your per­so­nal data as con­fi­den­ti­al infor­ma­ti­on and in com­pli­an­ce with the sta­tu­to­ry data pro­tec­tion regu­la­ti­ons and this Data Pro­tec­tion Declaration.

Whene­ver you use this website, a variety of per­so­nal infor­ma­ti­on will be collec­ted. Per­so­nal data com­pri­ses data that can be used to per­so­nal­ly iden­ti­fy you. This Data Pro­tec­tion Decla­ra­ti­on exp­lains which data we collect as well as the pur­po­ses we use this data for. It also exp­lains how, and for which purpose the infor­ma­ti­on is collected.

We here­with advise you that the trans­mis­si­on of data via the Inter­net (i.e. through e-mail com­mu­ni­ca­ti­ons) may be prone to secu­ri­ty gaps. It is not pos­si­ble to com­ple­te­ly protect data against third party access.

Information about the responsible party (referred to as the “controller” in the GDPR)

The data pro­ces­sing con­trol­ler on this website is:

Wahl Spe­zi­al­kol­ben GmbH
Gar­ten­stras­se 57/1
70734 Fellbach
Geschäfts­füh­rer: Herr Klaus Wahl

Tele­pho­ne: +49 711 589 660
Email: info@wahlspezialkolben.de

The con­trol­ler is the natural person or legal entity that single-han­ded­ly or jointly with others makes deci­si­ons as to the pur­po­ses of and resour­ces for the pro­ces­sing of per­so­nal data (e.g. names, e-mail addres­ses, etc.).

Revocation of your consent to the processing of data

A wide range of data pro­ces­sing tran­sac­tions are pos­si­ble only subject to your express consent. You can also revoke at any time any consent you have already given us. To do so, all you are requi­red to do is sent us an infor­mal noti­fi­ca­ti­on via e-mail. This shall be without pre­ju­di­ce to the law­ful­ness of any data collec­tion that occur­red prior to your revocation.

Right to object to the collection of data in special cases; right to object to direct advertising (Art. 21 GDPR)

In the event that data are pro­ces­sed on the basis of Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. e or f GDPR, you have the right to at any time object to the pro­ces­sing of your per­so­nal data based on grounds arising from your unique situa­ti­on. This also applies to any pro­filing based on these pro­vi­si­ons. To deter­mi­ne the legal basis, on which any pro­ces­sing of data is based, please consult this Data Pro­tec­tion Decla­ra­ti­on. If you log an objec­tion, we will no longer process your affec­ted per­so­nal data, unless we are in a posi­ti­on to present com­pel­ling pro­tec­tion worthy grounds for the pro­ces­sing of your data, that out­weigh your inte­rests, rights and free­doms or if the purpose of the pro­ces­sing is the clai­ming, exer­cising or defence of legal ent­it­le­ments (objec­tion pur­suant to Art. 21 Sect. 1 GDPR).

If your per­so­nal data is being pro­ces­sed in order to engage in direct adver­ti­sing, you have the right to at any time object to the pro­ces­sing of your affec­ted per­so­nal data for the pur­po­ses of such adver­ti­sing. This also applies to pro­filing to the extent that it is affi­lia­ted with such direct adver­ti­sing. If you object, your per­so­nal data will sub­se­quent­ly no longer be used for direct adver­ti­sing pur­po­ses (objec­tion pur­suant to Art. 21 Sect. 2 GDPR).

Right to log a complaint with the competent supervisory agency

In the event of vio­la­ti­ons of the GDPR, data sub­jects are ent­it­led to log a com­p­laint with a super­vi­so­ry agency, in par­ti­cu­lar in the member state where they usually main­tain their domic­i­le, place of work or at the place where the alleged vio­la­ti­on occur­red. The right to log a com­p­laint is in effect regard­less of any other admi­nis­tra­ti­ve or court pro­cee­dings avail­ab­le as legal recourses.

Right to data portability

You have the right to demand that we hand over any data we auto­ma­ti­cal­ly process on the basis of your consent or in order to fulfil a con­tract be handed over to you or a third party in a com­mon­ly used, machine read­a­ble format. If you should demand the direct trans­fer of the data to another con­trol­ler, this will be done only if it is tech­ni­cal­ly feasible.

SSL and/or TLS encryption

For secu­ri­ty reasons and to protect the trans­mis­si­on of con­fi­den­ti­al content, such as purcha­se orders or inqui­ries you submit to us as the website ope­ra­tor, this website uses either an SSL or a TLS encryp­ti­on pro­gram­me. You can reco­gnise an encryp­ted con­nec­tion by che­cking whether the address line of the browser swit­ches from “http://” to “https://” and also by the appearan­ce of the lock icon in the browser line.

If the SSL or TLS encryp­ti­on is activa­ted, data you trans­mit to us cannot be read by third parties.

Information about, blockage, rectification and eradication of data

Within the scope of the app­li­ca­ble sta­tu­to­ry pro­vi­si­ons, you have the right to at any time demand infor­ma­ti­on about your archi­ved per­so­nal data, their source and reci­pi­ents as well as the purpose of the pro­ces­sing of your data. You may also have a right to have your data rec­tified, blocked or era­di­ca­ted. If you have ques­ti­ons about this subject matter or any other ques­ti­ons about per­so­nal data, please do not hesi­ta­te to contact us at any time at the address pro­vi­ded in section “Infor­ma­ti­on Requi­red by Law.”

Right to demand processing restrictions

You have the right to demand the impo­si­ti­on of restric­tions as far as the pro­ces­sing of your per­so­nal data is con­cer­ned. To do so, you may contact us at any time at the address pro­vi­ded in section “Infor­ma­ti­on Requi­red by Law.” The right to demand restric­tion of pro­ces­sing applies in the fol­lo­wing cases:

  • In the event that you should dispute the cor­rect­ness of your data archi­ved by us, we will usually need some time to verify this claim. During the time that this inves­ti­ga­ti­on is ongoing, you have the right to demand that we restrict the pro­ces­sing of your per­so­nal data.
  • If the pro­ces­sing of your per­so­nal data was/is con­duc­ted in an unla­w­ful manner, you have the option to demand the restric­tion of the pro­ces­sing of your data in lieu of deman­ding the era­di­ca­ti­on of this data.
  • If we do not need your per­so­nal data any longer and you need it to exer­cise, defend or claim legal ent­it­le­ments, you have the right to demand the restric­tion of the pro­ces­sing of your per­so­nal data instead of its eradication.
  • If you have raised an objec­tion pur­suant to Art. 21 Sect. 1 GDPR, your rights and our rights will have to be weighed against each other. As long as it has not been deter­mi­ned whose inte­rests prevail, you have the right to demand a restric­tion of the pro­ces­sing of your per­so­nal data.

If you have restric­ted the pro­ces­sing of your per­so­nal data, these data – with the excep­ti­on of their archi­ving – may be pro­ces­sed only subject to your consent or to claim, exer­cise or defend legal ent­it­le­ments or to protect the rights of other natural persons or legal ent­i­ties or for important public inte­rest reasons cited by the Euro­pean Union or a member state of the EU.

The purpose of cookies is to make our website more user fri­end­ly, effec­tive and more secure. Cookies are small text files that are placed on your com­pu­ter and stored by your browser.

Most of the cookies we use are so-called “session cookies.” They are auto­ma­ti­cal­ly deleted after your leave our site. Other cookies will remain archi­ved on your device until you delete them. These cookies enable us to reco­gnise your browser the next time you visit our website.

You can adjust the set­tings of your browser to make sure that you are noti­fied every time cookies are placed and to enable you to accept cookies only in spe­ci­fic cases or to exclude the accep­tan­ce of cookies for spe­ci­fic situa­ti­ons or in general and to activa­te the auto­ma­tic dele­ti­on of cookies when you close your browser. If you deac­tiva­te cookies, the func­tions of this website may be limited.

Cookies that are requi­red for the per­for­mance of the elec­tro­nic com­mu­ni­ca­ti­ons tran­sac­tion or to provide certain func­tions you want to use (e.g. the shop­ping cart func­tion), are stored on the basis of Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. f GDPR. The website ope­ra­tor has a legi­ti­ma­te inte­rest in storing cookies to ensure the tech­ni­cal­ly error free and opti­mi­sed pro­vi­si­on of the operator’s ser­vices. If other cookies (e.g. cookies for the ana­ly­sis of your brow­sing pat­terns) should be stored, they are addres­sed sepa­r­a­te­ly in this Data Pro­tec­tion Declaration.

Server log files

The pro­vi­der of this website and its pages auto­ma­ti­cal­ly collects and stores infor­ma­ti­on in so-called server log files, which your browser com­mu­ni­ca­tes to us auto­ma­ti­cal­ly. The infor­ma­ti­on comprises:

  • The type and version of browser used
  • The used ope­ra­ting system
  • Refer­rer URL
  • The host­na­me of the acces­sing computer
  • The time of the server inquiry
  • The IP address

This data is not merged with other data sources.

This data is recor­ded on the basis of Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. f GDPR. The ope­ra­tor of the website has a legi­ti­ma­te inte­rest in the tech­ni­cal­ly error free depic­tion and the opti­mi­za­ti­on of the operator’s website. In order to achieve this, server log files must be recorded.

Contact form

If you submit inqui­ries to us via our contact form, the infor­ma­ti­on pro­vi­ded in the contact form as well as any contact infor­ma­ti­on pro­vi­ded therein will be stored by us in order to handle your inquiry and in the event that we have further ques­ti­ons. We will not share this infor­ma­ti­on without your consent.

Hence, the pro­ces­sing of the data entered into the contact form occurs exclu­si­ve­ly based on your consent (Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. a GDPR). You have the right to revoke at any time any consent you have already given us. To do so, all you are requi­red to do is sent us an infor­mal noti­fi­ca­ti­on via e-mail. This shall be without pre­ju­di­ce to the law­ful­ness of any data collec­tion that occur­red prior to your revocation.

The infor­ma­ti­on you have entered into the contact form shall remain with us until you ask us to era­di­ca­te the data, revoke your consent to the archi­ving of data or if the purpose for which the infor­ma­ti­on is being archi­ved no longer exists (e.g. after we have con­clu­ded our respon­se to your inquiry). This shall be without pre­ju­di­ce to any man­da­to­ry legal pro­vi­si­ons – in par­ti­cu­lar reten­ti­on periods.

Processing of data (customer and contract data)

We collect, process and use per­so­nal data only to the extent necessa­ry for the esta­blish­ment, content orga­ni­za­ti­on or change of the legal rela­ti­ons­hip (data inven­to­ry). These actions are taken on the basis of Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. b GDPR, which permits the pro­ces­sing of data for the ful­fil­ment of a con­tract or pre-con­trac­tu­al actions. We collect, process and use per­so­nal data con­cer­ning the use of our website (usage data) only to the extent that this is necessa­ry to make it pos­si­ble for users to utilize the ser­vices and to bill for them.

The collec­ted custo­mer data shall be era­di­ca­ted upon com­ple­ti­on of the order or the ter­mi­na­ti­on of the busi­ness rela­ti­ons­hip. This shall be without pre­ju­di­ce to any sta­tu­to­ry reten­ti­on mandates.

4. Analysis tools and advertising

Matomo (formerly called Piwik)

This website uses the open source web ana­ly­sis service Matomo. Matomo uses so-called “cookies,” which are text files that are stored on your com­pu­ter and that make it pos­si­ble to analyse your use of this website. In con­junc­tion with this, the infor­ma­ti­on about the use of this website gene­ra­ted by the cookie will be archi­ved on our server. Prior to archi­ving, the IP address will first be anonymized.

Matomo cookies will remain on your device until you delete them.

The storage of Matomo cookies and the use of this ana­ly­sis tool are based on Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. f GDPR. The website ope­ra­tor has a legi­ti­ma­te inte­rest in the ana­ly­sis of user pat­terns, in order to opti­mi­ze the operator’s web offe­rings and advertising.

The infor­ma­ti­on gene­ra­ted by cookies con­cer­ning the use of this website shall not be shared with any third parties. You may prevent the storage of cookies at any time by making per­ti­nent changes to your browser soft­ware set­tings; however, we have to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all of the func­tions of this website to their fullest extent.

If you do not consent to the storage and use of your data, you have the option to deac­tiva­te the storage and use of such data here. In this case, an opt out cookie will be placed in our browser, which prevent the storage of usage data by Matomo. If you delete your cookies, this will also result in the dele­ti­on of the Matomo opt out cookie. Hence, you will have to reac­tiva­te the opt out when you return to visit our website.

5. Plug-ins and Tools

Google Web Fonts

To ensure that fonts used on this website are uniform, this website uses so-called Web Fonts pro­vi­ded by Google. When you access a page on our website, your browser will load the requi­red web fonts into your browser cache to cor­rect­ly display text and fonts.

To do this, the browser you use will have to esta­blish a con­nec­tion with Google’s servers. As a result, Google will learn that your IP address was used to access our website. The use of Google Web Fonts is based on our inte­rest in pre­sen­ting our online content in a uniform and appe­aling way. Accord­ing to Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. f GDPR, this is a legi­ti­ma­te interest.

If your browser should not support Web Fonts, a stan­dard font instal­led on your com­pu­ter will be used.
