Website privacy statement
The Weidmüller Group (hereinafter “Weidmüller”; information on Weidmüller is available here), is happy to welcome you to our website. Data protection and data security while using our website are very important to us. We would therefore like to inform you about the data we gather during your visit and for what purpose it is used.
As legislative amendments or changes to our company-internal processes necessitate adaptation of this privacy statement, we recommend that you read through it on a regular basis.
This privacy statement applies to the Weidmüller website accessible under the domain industrial-analytics.weidmueller.com (hereinafter referred to as “our website”).
2. Name and address of responsible organisation
The responsible organisation and service provider is Weidmüller Interface GmbH & Co. KG, Klingenbergstrasse 16, 32758 Detmold (hereinafter referred to as “Weidmüller”).
3. Name and address of data protection officer
Our data protection officer is Dr Karsten Kinast, LL.M. If you have any questions regarding data protection, please do not hesitate to contact our data protection officer at any time, preferably by e-mail at: datenschutz@weidmüller.de
4. General information on data processing
We collect and use our users’ personal data only where this is required for the provision of a functional website, as well as our content and services.
4.1. Personal data
Personal data is information that can be individually attributed to you. This includes, for example, your name, e-mail address, home address, gender, date of birth, telephone number and age. Non-personal data is information such as the number of users of a website.
4.2. Processing of personal data
Processing is defined as any operation or series of operations, with or without the aid of automated processes, that involves personal data, such as collection, entry, organisation, sorting, storage, adaptation or alteration, reading, querying, use, disclosure through transmission, dissemination or another form of provision, matching or linking, restriction, deletion or destruction.
Personal data is collected via this website if you voluntarily provide it to us, e.g. within the scope of registration, through completing forms, by sending e-mails or by uploading your application documents. We use this data for the purposes specified or arising from the enquiry, for example specification of your postal address for the dispatch of goods. Data is only transmitted to third parties if explicitly permitted by law or if you have consented to this within the scope of your registration or in the course of an active business relationship. Incidentally, you can use the general information on industrial-analytics.weidmueller.com without disclosing your personal data.
In particular, personal data is processed as follows:
4.2.1. Contact form
If you decide to direct enquiries to us using our contact form, we will ask you for your first and last name and your e-mail address. You can also voluntarily enter additional data and your individual message to us in the message field.
It is entirely up to you whether you provide us with this data. However, without this information we will be unable to fulfil your contact request.
Specifying your e-mail address serves to classify your enquiry and to reply to you. By using the contact form, your personal data will not be passed on to third parties.
The data processing previously described for the purpose of establishing contact is performed in accordance with Art. 6 (1) (b) and Art. 6 (1) (f) of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
4.2.2 Downloading of newsletter and white paper
We like to regularly send prospective customers promotional material on our products and services by e-mail. To this end, we use your specified e-mail address and your first and last name. Your data is used exclusively for the purpose of sending you our newsletter. The identification of your e-mail address and your mobile phone number is performed using the double opt-in procedure. This means that after processing your data, you will receive a separate confirmation e-mail. Only after clicking on the link contained in the e-mail will you receive advertising e-mails. Furthermore, we store your IP address and the date of your registration and confirmation. The purpose of this procedure is to verify your registration and where applicable to be in a position to resolve any misuse of your personal data. No data is passed on to third parties. Your data is stored until you have revoked this consent. You have the right to revoke your consent to this data processing, which is based on Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR, at any time and without providing reasons. In this case, we will not process your personal data further. You can revoke your consent by e-mail to datenschutz@weidmüller.de or by post to Weidmüller Interface GmbH & Co. KG, Klingenbergstrasse 16, 32758 Detmold. All e-mails also contain an unsubscribe link, which, when confirmed, is deemed to revoke your consent.
4.3. Legal basis for the processing of personal data
Personal data is regularly collected and used only with the user’s consent. Provided we obtain consent from the data subject for the processing of personal data, Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing personal data.
An exception is made for cases in which prior consent cannot be obtained for practical reasons and processing of the data is permitted by law. In cases where the processing of personal data is required to fulfil a contract for which the person concerned is the contractual party, Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies for processing operations required for the execution of pre-contractual measures.
As far as the processing of personal data is required to comply with a legal obligation to which we are subject, Art. 6 (1) (c) GDPR serves as the legal basis.
If the processing is required 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 override the aforementioned interest, Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing.
4.4. Disclosure of your personal data to third parties
In principle, your personal data is not passed on to third parties. Your personal data is only passed on to third parties or transmitted otherwise if
• we are legally obliged to do so on the basis of an official or judicial order;
• we are entitled to do so, e.g. because this is required to prosecute a criminal offence or to exercise
and enforce our rights; or
• you have given prior consent.
5. Cookies and web analysis tools
These cookies are used, in particular, to determine the frequency of use and the number of users of our websites, to continue to identify your computer when you change from one of our websites to another of our websites, and to be able to determine the end of your visit. This lets us know which area of our websites and which other websites our users have visited. This usage data does not allow any conclusions to be drawn about the user’s identity. In accordance with section 3 of this privacy statement, none of the anonymised usage data collected is merged with your personal data and all data is immediately deleted at the end of the statistical evaluation. The cookies are deleted at the end of the session as soon as you close your browser.
Most browsers are pre-configured to automatically allow cookies. However, you can deactivate the storing of cookies or configure your browser to notify you before cookies are stored. Users who do not allow cookies may not be able to access certain areas of our websites.
5.2 Web analysis tools
In order to optimise this website and ensure it meets the needs of users, solutions and technologies from econda GmbH are used to enter and store anonymised data as well as use this data to create pseudonym-based user profiles. To this end, cookies may be used that enable an Internet browser to be recognised. User profiles are not merged with personal data pertaining to the bearer of the pseudonym unless agreed to expressly by the visitor.
IP addresses, in particular, are made unreadable immediately upon entry so that they cannot be assigned to user profiles.
5.3 Legal basis
Our legitimate interest lies in the aforementioned data processing operations and in the purposes thus pursued. Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR forms the legal basis for this.
6. Integration of social plug-ins
6.1 Facebook and Twitter
Social plug-ins from the social networks Facebook (Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, California 94304, USA) and Twitter (Twitter, Inc., 1355 Market St, Suite 900, San Francisco, California 94103, USA) are included on our websites. These services are offered by the respective company (“provider”). The social plug-ins used on our websites are identified by the respective button. On the basis of the data transmitted via the social plug-ins to the respective service, the service may be able to correlate you with your associated account. To enhance the protection of your data on our website, social plug-ins are integrated using the so-called “two-click solution”. This ensures that on accessing one of our websites containing social plug-ins, no automatic connection is established with the servers of the respective provider.
Activation of the respective social plug-in function takes place in two stages. To activate a social plug-in, you firstly have to click on the link on our website. This then activates the social plug-in and your browser initiates a connection to the servers of the respective provider. With a second click, you can interact with the social plug-in and send your recommendation, for example. If you are already logged in to one of the social networks, the providers can directly correlate the visit to this website with your profile. Should you click on and interact with the social plug-ins, the relevant information is also sent directly to one of the provider’s servers, where it is stored. The information may also be published on the social network and appear there under your contacts. Should you wish to prevent the direct correlation of data collected via our website with your profile, you have to log out of your account with the respective provider prior to visiting our websites.
Details about the extent and purpose of data collection by the respective service as well as the processing and use of your data can be found in the privacy statement on the service website. Here you will also find further information on your data protection rights and setting options for the protection of your privacy.
a) Facebook Inc., 1601 S California Ave, Palo Alto, California 94304, USA
b) Twitter Inc., 1355 Market St, Suite 900, San Francisco, California 94103, USA
Plug-ins from social network LinkedIn of LinkedIn Corporation, 2029 Stierlin Court, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (hereinafter “LinkedIn”) are also included on our sites. LinkedIn plug-ins on our sites are identifiable by the LinkedIn logo or the “Recommend” button. When you visit our sites, a direct connection is established between your browser and the LinkedIn server via the plug-in. Through this connection, LinkedIn obtains the information that you have visited our site with your IP address. Should you click the LinkedIn “Recommend” button while you are logged in to your LinkedIn account, you can link the contents of our site to your LinkedIn profile. This allows LinkedIn to correlate the visit to our sites with your user account. Please note that we, as the provider of the sites, have no knowledge of the content of the transferred data nor of the usage of such data by LinkedIn.
6.4 Legal basis
Our legitimate interest lies in the aforementioned data processing operations and in the purposes thus pursued. Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR forms the legal basis for this.
7. Security measures to protect stored data
We pledge to protect your privacy and to treat your personal data confidentially. To prevent the loss or misuse of the data we store, we take comprehensive technical and organisational safety precautions, which are regularly reviewed and updated in keeping with the latest technological advances. However, you should be aware that the Internet is structured in such a way that data protection rules or the above security measures may not be observed by other persons or organisations outside our sphere of influence. In particular, it is possible for unencrypted data to be read by third parties – even if this is disclosed by e-mail. We have no technical influence over this. It is the responsibility of the user to protect from misuse any data made available either by way of encryption or by other methods.
8. Use of service providers for processing personal data / processing of data in countries outside the European Economic Area
We deploy service providers to render services and process your data concerning our services and products. The service providers process the data exclusively within the limits of our instructions and are obliged to comply with the applicable data protection legislation. All processors have been carefully selected and only receive access to your data to the extent and for the necessary period required for rendering the services, or to the extent of the data processing and use to which you have consented.
Service providers in countries such as the USA or in countries outside the European Economic Area are subject to data protection that generally does not protect personal data to the same degree as is the case in the member states of the European Union. As far as your data is processed in a country which does not have an equivalent level of data protection as that recognised in the European Union, we ensure that your personal data is appropriately protected by means of contractual provisions or other acknowledged instruments.
9. Storage period
We will only store your personal data for as long as is permitted by law. Stored personal data is deleted if you revoke your consent to storage or if knowledge of the data is no longer necessary for the fulfilment of the purpose for which it was stored, especially if storage is not permitted on other legal grounds. The relevant document retention requirements of the German Commercial Code or German Revenue Code shall remain unaffected by this. During the period of statutory document retention, your personal data will be blocked and will not be transmitted for other data processing.
10. Rights of individuals affected
10.1 Right to information
You have the right to demand information from us at any time about what data we have stored about you, its origin, and the recipients or categories of recipients to whom this data is passed on and the purpose of storage.
10.2 Right of revocation
If you have granted consent to the use of data, you can revoke this at any time without providing reasons with ongoing effect. To do so, you may send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or written notification to Weidmüller Interface GmbH & Co. KG, Klingenbergstrasse 16, 32758 Detmold.
10.3 Right of rectification
If your personal data stored by us is incorrect, you can have it corrected at any time. To do so, you may send an e-mail to email@example.com or written notification to Weidmüller Interface GmbH & Co. KG, Klingenbergstrasse 16, 32758 Detmold.
10.4 Right of deletion and blocking
You have the right to block and delete your personal data stored by us. Deletion of your personal data usually takes place within two working days of exercising this right as an individual affected. Should deletion conflict with legal, contractual, fiscal or commercial retention periods or other legally valid reasons, your data may be blocked instead. Following deletion of your data, the provision of information is no longer possible.
10.5 Right to data transmission
Should you demand the return of personal data provided to us, we will issue or transmit the data to you or another responsible person, as you wish, in a structured, common and machine-readable format. However, in the latter form only if this is technically possible.
10.6 Right of objection
You have the right to object to the processing of data at any time and without providing reasons. It may be the case, however, that after exercising the right of objection we can no longer offer our services to the full extent, as certain services necessitate the processing of specific personal data.
10.7 Contact for assertion of the rights of individuals affected
When contacting us by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or by post at Weidmüller Interface GmbH & Co. KG, Klingenbergstrasse 16, 32758 Detmold, the data you provide (your e-mail address and possibly your name and telephone number) is stored by us in order to answer your questions or to address your concern. We delete the data arising in this context once storage is no longer required, or restrict processing if statutory retention obligations apply.
11. Right of appeal to supervisory authorities
You have the right to lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority (the data protection officer of North Rhine-Westphalia) against the processing of your personal data if you consider your rights under GDPR to be violated.
