Privacy Policy

We thank you for visiting our website and for your interest in our company. For us, protection of your data is of paramount importance. In the following information regarding data protection, we would like to inform you concerning the purposes for and extent to which we collect and process your personal data when using our website and how we protect your personal privacy when you provide us with your data.

Responsibility

PEINER SMAG Lifting Technologies GmbH (Windmühlenbergstraße 20-22, 38259 Salzgitter, telephone: +49 5341 302-0, fax: +49 5341 302-424) is the operator of this website and, as the accountable authority according to Art. 4 (7) GDPR, is responsible for the compliance with current data protection legislation.

We store and process the personal data of our users in accordance with the relevant regulations, in particular the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and the German Telemedia Act (TMG) in the respective current versions. All personal data will only be collected for specified, explicit and legitimate purposes and will not be stored longer than is necessary.

Personal data

Personal data are individual details concerning the personal or material circumstances of an identified or identifiable natural person (e.g. name, date of birth and contact details).

Website

Fundamentally, you are able to use our website without provision of your personal data. However, for certain applications within our websites, it may be necessary for you to provide us with your data. Without provision of your data, restrictions in the use of our website may therefore occur.

As soon as you enter our website, our web servers temporarily store every access in a log file. The following data can hereby be collected and stored until the automatic deletion: inter alia IP address, date and time of access, volume of data transmitted, notifications concerning successful accessing of the website, recognition data for the browser and operating system used, the website from which the access takes place and the IP address of your Internet access provider. The processing of this data is for the purpose of enabling the use of the website, for system security, the technical administration of the network infrastructure and the optimization of the Internet services offered. This is deemed a legitimate interest in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR.

Miscellaneous data acquisition

We collect, store and process your personal data (e.g. first name, surname, address, e-mail address, telephone number) should a business relationship, e.g. within the framework of a subscription or an order, exist or its establishment be planned, as well as in the case of the content design and alteration of the business relationship. In addition, we use your personal data, insofar as you have provided us with these for the purpose of registration on our website and have consented to the processing of your personal data. Furthermore, we collect, store and process your personal data if you contact us via the contact form or by the sending of an e-mail, insofar as this is necessary for the processing of your enquiries and correspondence. The personal data collected by us will be swiftly deleted as soon as they are no longer required for this purpose; the exception is in the case of applicable statutory retention periods. The provision of your personal data is voluntary.

Forwarding of the data

We use your personal data within PEINER SMAG Lifting Technologies GmbH and our affiliated companies. These companies, as well as our external service providers, who perform data processing on our behalf, are, in accordance with Art. 28 GDPR, contractually obliged to handle personal data in accordance with the applicable regulations. Insofar as these companies come into contact with your personal data, we have ensured, through legal, technical and organizational measures as well as through regular inspections, that they comply with the provisions of the data protection laws.

Should you encounter partner offers on our website, these are to be used directly with the respective partners. This includes offers from third-party providers which are administrated by these providers, for which our data privacy regulations do not apply. We reserve the right to forward your personal data to authorities which are entitled to receive your information if we are obligated to do so by law or by court order.

A forwarding of your personal data to other third parties will not take place.

Cookies

Our website uses so-called cookies to store various information. These serve the user-friendly usage of the application and make the offered Internet services generally more effective. Furthermore, the data stored in a cookie eliminate the necessity of repeatedly filling out forms. The cookies which we use are temporally limited and are deleted regularly.

For the use of an account on our website, we apply cookies in particular for the purpose of recognising you on a subsequent visit. Without this function, you would have to log in on every visit. The legal basis for the processing of the data within the framework of cookies is Art. 6 Abs. 1 S. 1 lit. F DSGVO.

In your browser, you can independently manage the acceptance of cookies on our website and block them if necessary. You can also delete previously placed cookies at any time. Furthermore, in the settings of your selected browser, you can also obtain information concerning the possibility of disabling cookies. If you accept no cookies whatsoever, this may lead to restrictions in the use of our website in individual cases. We would like to point out that after deleting your cookies, it may be necessary to reactivate your opt-out cookies.

We recommend that you regularly delete the cookies and the browser history manually.

Analysis of the website

In order to optimise the contents and offers on our website and to collect statistical evaluations, various technical programs are utilised which also record data concerning the behaviour of the user of the website in anonymous form. For this purpose, data are collected regarding, for example, click behaviour, visit duration, system settings and the origin of the user through the application of analysis software cookies in the form of text files. For these evaluations, cookies are stored on your computer. These collected data can be stored on the servers of the operators of the analysis tools. The collected data will neither be used for the personal identification of the user nor be merged with other personal data of the user.

You can prevent the installation of cookies by selecting the appropriate setting in your browser. However, we would like to point out that in this case, you may not be able to utilise all the functions of this website to the full extent. In the following section, the analysis tools which we use are presented in detail.

For this purpose, the following analysis tools are used on our website:

Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. The information generated by the Google Analytics cookie is generally transmitted to a Google server in the United States of America and stored there. The IP address from your browser which is transmitted within the framework of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data. Furthermore, the IP addresses are only processed in shortened form. A direct personal reference can therefore be excluded. Our website uses Google Analytics with the extension "_anonymizelp". As a result, IP addresses are processed in shortened form; a direct personal reference can therefore be excluded.

You can prevent the collection and processing of your data through the Google Analytics cookie by installing the following browser plug-in: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en-GB.

Social plug-ins

Our website uses the social plug-ins of various providers of social networks. As soon as you call up one of our web pages containing such a plug-in, the content of the plug-in will be transmitted directly to your browser. Through the use of social plug-ins, we offer you the opportunity of interacting directly with our posts via the comment function.

By clicking on the respective social media plug-in, you will be immediately redirected to our web presence in the corresponding social network and your data will be transmitted to the servers of the respective social network provider. These data include your IP address, date and time of access, recognition data for the browser and operating system used, and the website from which the access takes place.

We would like to point out that we have no influence on the extent of the data processing carried out by the relevant social network provider. For purpose, type and extent of data collection as well as the further processing and use of the data, please refer to the data protection guidelines of the respective provider.

Please note that the servers of the social network providers are located to a large extent in countries outside of the European Union. Companies which process data in countries outside the European Union are subject to data protection laws that frequently do not guarantee the protection of personal data to the extent that is the case under the data protection laws of the European Union.

Google Maps

For the visual presentation of geographic information, we use Google Maps API, a service of Google Inc. The information generated through Google Maps API is generally transmitted to a Google server in the United States of America and stored there. Google may transfer the data obtained through the use of Google Maps to third parties, insofar as the third parties process this data on behalf of Google or this is legally permitted or required. The IP address transmitted by your browser when using Google Maps will not be merged with other Google data. Nevertheless, it is potentially technically possible for Google to process the received data for other purposes or to identify individual users, without PEINER SMAG Lifting Technologies GmbH having or being able to have any influence hereon. For these reasons, the use of Google Maps is problematic to evaluate as regards data protection laws.

However, you have the possibility of preventing data transfer to Google by disabling the Google Maps service through disabling the JavaScript function in your browser. In this case, however, you will not be able to use the map screen.

Through the use of this website with activated JavaScript function, you, in awareness of the problem relating to data privacy legislation, expressly declare your consent to the processing of your data collected by Google Inc. in the manner and circumstances described above and for the aforementioned purposes.

Company: GOOGLE INC.,1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA

Additional information concerning the Terms of Service for Google Maps can be found at: https://developers.google.com/maps/terms and in the Google Privacy Policy http://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy.

These measures fulfil the strict legal requirements of the national regulations and are being constantly adapted to the current state of the art.
