  1. General information and mandatory information

Data protection

The operators of this website take protecting your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data as confidential and in accordance with statutory data protection regulations and this privacy policy.

Various items of personal data are collected when you use this website. Personal data means all data with which you can be personally identified. This privacy policy explains which data we collect and what we use it for. It also explains how and for which purpose this is done.

Note that transmitting data over the Internet (when communicating via e-mail, for example) may involve gaps in security. It is not possible to protect data completely against access by third parties.

Information about the responsible party

The responsible party for data processing on this website is:

BRAUN GMBH Industrie-Elektronik
Albrecht Braun
Esslinger Str. 26
D-71334 Waiblingen
Germany

Telephone: +49 7151 956230
E-mail: info@braun-tacho.de

The responsible party is the natural person or legal entity that is responsible solely or together with others for deciding on the purpose and means of the processing of personal data (such as names, e-mail addresses or similar).

Withdrawal of your consent to data processing

Many data processing operations are possible only with your express consent. You can withdraw consent that you have already granted at any time. To do so, simply notify us by e-mail. This does not affect the lawfulness of consent-based processing carried out up to the point of withdrawal.

Right to object to data collection in particular cases as well as to direct advertising (Article 21 GDPR)

If data is processed on the basis of Article 6 Paragraph 1 (e) or (f) GDPR, you have the right to object to the processing of your personal data at any time for reasons arising from your particular situation; this also applies to profiling that is based on these provisions. This privacy policy states the respective legal basis on which the processing of the data is based. If you file an objection, we will no longer process your personal data unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate reasons that are worth protecting for the processing that outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or if the processing serves to establish, exercise or defend legal claims (objection in accordance with Article 21 Paragraph 1 GDPR).

If your personal data is processed for the purpose of direct advertising, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data relating to you for the purpose of this type of advertising; this also applies to profiling if it is related to such direct advertising. If you file an objection, your personal data will no longer be used for the purposes of direct advertising (objection in accordance with Article 21 Paragraph 2 GDPR).

Right to complain to the responsible supervisory authority

If the GDPR is infringed, the person concerned has a right to complain to a supervisory authority, particularly in the Member State of their usual place of residence, their workplace, or the location of the alleged infringement. The right to complain exists irrespective of other administrative or judicial remedies.

Right to portability

You have the right to obtain a copy of the data that we process automatically based on your consent or on the fulfilment of a contract, either for yourself or for a third party, in a common format that is machine-readable. If you request the data to be transmitted directly to another responsible party, this will be done provided it is technically feasible.

SSL or TLS encryption

For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential contents such as orders or enquiries which you send to us as a website operator, this website uses SSL or TLS encryption. With an encrypted connection, the address line of the browser changes from “http://” to “https://” and you see a padlock icon in your browser line.

If SSL or TLS encryption is enabled, the data that you transmit to us cannot be intercepted by third parties.

Information, blocking, deletion and correction

In line with the applicable statutory provisions, you have the right at any time to free-of-charge information about your personal data that is stored, its origin and recipients and the purpose of the data processing and, where applicable, a right to the correction, blocking or deletion of this data. If you have any additional questions relating to personal data, please contact the address provided in the Imprint at any time.

Right to restriction of processing

You have the right to request that the processing of your personal data is restricted. You can contact us at the address specified in the Imprint at any time for this purpose. The right to the restriction of processing exists in the following cases:

  • If you dispute the correctness of the personal data that is stored by us, we usually require time to verify this. For the time it takes to do this, you have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data.
  • If the processing of your personal data is or was unlawful, you can request that the processing of your personal data is restricted instead of the data being deleted.
  • If we do not require your personal data any longer but still need it to establish, exercise or defend legal claims, you have the right to request that the processing of your personal data is restricted instead of the data being deleted.
  • If you have filed an objection in accordance with Article 21 Paragraph 1 GDPR, both your interests and our interests have to be weighed up. Until it has been determined whose interests prevail, you have the right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data.

If you have restricted the processing of your personal data then this personal data – apart from its storage – is processed only with your consent or to establish, exercise or defend legal claims, or to protect the rights of another natural person or legal entity, or for reasons of important public interest of the European Union or a Member State.

Objection to promotional e-mails

The use of the contact details that are published as part of the obligation to provide an imprint for sending promotional and information materials that are not explicitly requested is herewith rejected. The operators of the website expressly reserve the right to pursue legal steps in the event of unsolicited promotional information such as by means of spam e-mails.

  1. Data collection on our website

Cookies

Our website sometimes uses what are called cookies. Cookies do not inflict any damage on your computer and do not contain any viruses. Cookies are used to make our website more user friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and are saved by your browser.

Most of the cookies that we use are what are called “session cookies”. They are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your device until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognise your browser the next time you visit.

You can configure your browser in such a way that you are informed about when cookies are set and only allow cookies in individual cases, refuse to accept cookies in some instances or in general, and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when you close the browser. Deactivating cookies may restrict the functionality of this website.

Cookies that are necessary for performing electronic communication or for providing specific functions that you require (such as a shopping cart function) are stored on the basis of Article 6 Paragraph 1 (f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in storing cookies for the optimised provision of its services without any technical errors. If other cookies are stored (such as cookies for analysing your surfing behaviour), these are handled separately in this privacy policy.

Server log files

The provider of the website automatically collects and stores information in what are called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. This information consists of:

  • Browser type and browser version
  • The operating system used
  • Referrer URL
  • Host name of the accessing computer
  • Time of the server request
  • IP address

This data is not merged with other data sources.

This data is recorded on the basis of Article 6 Paragraph 1 (f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in displaying its website without any technical errors and optimising its website – server log files have to be recorded for this purpose.

Contact form

If you send us enquiries via a contact form, your information from the enquiry form including the contact details you specify there are stored by us for the purpose of processing the enquiry and in the event of any follow-up questions. We will not forward this data without your consent.

The data that was entered in the contact form is thus processed exclusively on the basis of your consent (Article 6 Paragraph 1 (a) GDPR). You can withdraw this consent at any time. To do so, simply notify us by e-mail. This does not affect the lawfulness of consent-based processing carried out up to the point of withdrawal.

We retain the data you entered in the contact form until you ask us to delete it, you withdraw your consent to its storage, or if the purpose for which the data was stored no longer applies (for example after we have finished processing your enquiry). Mandatory statutory provisions – especially retention periods – shall remain unaffected.

  1. Analytics tools and advertising

Matomo (formerly Piwik)

This website uses the open source web analytics service Matomo. Matomo uses what are called cookies. These are text files that are stored on your computer and enable your use of the website to be analysed. The information that is created by the cookie relating to the use of this website is stored on our server for this purpose. The IP address is anonymised before it is stored.

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

Matomo cookies and this analytics tool are used on the basis of Article 6 Paragraph 1 (f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the anonymised analysis of user behaviour to optimise both its website and its advertising.

The information created by the cookie relating to the use of this website is not forwarded to third parties. You can prevent the storage of cookies by selecting the relevant settings in your browser software; please note, however, that you may not be able to use all functions of this website in full in this case.

If you do not agree to the storage and use of your data, you can disable this here. In this case, an opt-out cookie is set in your browser that prevents Matomo from storing usage data. The consequence of deleting your cookies is that the Matomo opt-out cookie is also deleted. The opt-out cookie has to be enabled again the next time your visit our site.

  1. Plug-ins and tools

Google web fonts

To display font types uniformly, this website uses what are called web fonts which are provided by Google. When a website is accessed, your browser loads the required web fonts in your browser cache so that texts and font types can be displayed correctly.

For this purpose, the browser you use has to connect to the Google servers. This provides Google with the information that our website was called up via your IP address. Google web fonts are used in the interest of displaying our online offerings in a standardised and appealing manner. This represents a legitimate interest within the meaning of Article 6 Paragraph 1 (f) GDPR.

If your browser does not support web fonts, a standard font from your computer is used.

For more information about Google web fonts, see https://developers.google.com/fonts/faq and Google’s privacy policy: https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/.

Google Maps

This website uses the Google Maps service via an API. It is provided by Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

Your IP address has to be stored so that you can use the functions of Google Maps. This information is usually sent to a Google server in the USA and stored there. The provider of this website does not have any influence over this data transmission.

Google Maps is used in the interest of presenting our website in an appealing way and so that the locations offered by us on the website can be found more easily. This represents a legitimate interest within the meaning of Article 6 Paragraph 1 (f) GDPR.

For more information on handling user information, see Google’s privacy policy: https://www.google.de/intl/en/policies/privacy/.

Google reCAPTCHA

We use “Google reCAPTCHA” (hereinafter referred to as “reCAPTCHA”) on our websites. It is provided by Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”).

reCAPTCHA checks whether the data entered on our websites (in a contact form, for example) is entered by a human being or by means of an automated program. reCAPTCHA analyses the website visitor’s behaviour using different characteristics for this purpose. This analysis starts automatically as soon as the visitor accesses the website. reCAPTCHA assesses different information (such as IP address, the website visitor’s dwell time on the website or mouse movements performed by the user). The data that is recorded during the analysis is forwarded to Google.

reCAPTCHA analyses run entirely in the background. Website visitors are not informed that an analysis is taking place.

The data is processed on the basis of Article 6 Paragraph 1 (f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in protecting its web offering from improper and automated spying and from spam.

For additional information about Google reCAPTCHA and Google’s privacy policy, see the following links: https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/ and https://www.google.com/recaptcha/intro/android.html.
