Anonymous data collection

In general, you can visit the websites of thyssenkrupp Infrastructure on an anonymous basis, i.e. without informing us of who you are. When you visit our website, our web servers in Germany save as standard the IP address of your internet service provider via which you access our website, the site from which you access our site and the files you access from us, as well as the date of your visit and general information about your browser. These data are only analysed in anonymized form for statistical purposes.

Within EU Member States or in other member states of the European Economic Area, Google will shorten your IP address before transmitting it if IP anonymization is activated on this website. Only in exceptional cases will your full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services for the website operator relating to website activity and internet usage. Google will not associate your browser's IP address, transmitted for Google Analytics purposes, with any other data held by Google.

  • Communication data (e.g. consulting protocols)

4. For what purposes and on what legal basis is data processed?

We process your data in compliance with the provisions of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and all other applicable laws.

We primarily process personal data for the fulfillment of contractual obligations (Article 6 paragraph 1 lit. b GDPR), more precisely for the purpose of initiating, executing or fulfilling a contract. This includes, for example, placing orders, internal sales, shipping and payment of merchandise or contract negotiations.

Unless you are not yourself a contracting party (for example, you are an employee of a business partner), processing for the same purposes takes place as a legitimate interest in accordance with Article 6 paragraph 1 lit. f GDPR. With your employer/client, we are in the initiation or execution phase of a contractual relationship as part of our business activities. We are processing your personal data due to your activity for your employer/client.

If necessary, we also process personal data to fulfill statutory requirements (Article 6 para-graph 1 lit. c GDPR) for the following purposes:

  • Preservation of statutory storage requirements
  • Preservation of legal reporting obligations

Furthermore, we process personal data in order to safeguard the following legitimate inter-ests (Article 6 paragraph 1 lit. f GDPR):

  • Maintenance of the business relationship with existing customers
  • Organization of events (for example, admission control)
  • Asserting legal claims and defense in legal disputes
  • Inclusion in our contact database, human relations after business contact (e.g. after leaving your business card)
  • Direct marketing to customers or employees of customers (e.g. information about prod-ucts and events, newsletters)

In addition, we potentially process personal data for which we received consent (Article 6 paragraph 1 lit. a GDPR). We will collect them separately and in the following cases:

  • Direct marketing to interested parties/other business contacts (e.g. information about products and events, newsletters)

5. Who receives your data?

Your data will be processed within the #company name by the employees involved in the initiation/implementation of the business relationship and the execution of the respective business processes.

Within our group of companies your data will be transmitted to certain companies when they perform centralized data processing tasks for the group's affiliated companies (e.g. centralized contact data management, centralized contract management, file disposal).

In addition, to fulfill our contractual and legal obligations, we sometimes use different exter-nal service providers who are required by data processing agreements to observe data protection laws, Article 4 No. 8 GDPR. These are service providers in the following areas

  • IT services
  • Logistics
  • Marketing
  • Legal advice

In addition, we transmit your data to other recipients outside the company who process your data at their own responsibility, Article 4 No. 7 GDPR. For example, this may include the following categories of responsible persons:

  • Public institutions due to statutory provisions (e.g. tax authorities)
  • Third parties such as credit institutions, credit bureaus - if a transfer of legitimate inter-est is permissible

6. How long will your data be stored?

We process your personal data as long as it is necessary for the above referenced purposes. After completion of the business relationship your data will be stored as long as we are legally obligated to do so. This is regularly the result of legal proof and retention obligations, which are regulated in the Commercial Code and the Tax Code. According to these codes, the storage periods are up to ten years. In addition, it may be necessary to retain personal data for the time during which claims can be asserted against us (statutory limitation period of up to thirty years)

7. Are you required to provide your data?

There is no contractual or legal obligation to provide personal data. However, without processing your personal data, we are not in a position to carry out the necessary pre-con-tractual measures or execute the contractual relationship with you or your employer/client.

8. Which data protection rights can you claim as the person affected?

You have the right to request information about the data stored about you, Art. 15 GDPR. In addition, you may request the rectification or erasure of your data, Art. 16, 17 GDPR. You may also be entitled to restrict the processing of your data and a right to release the data you provided in a structured, common, machine-readable format, provided this does not affect the rights and freedoms of others, Art. 18, 20 GDPR.

If you have given us consent to the processing of your personal data, you can revoke this consent at any time. The legality of the processing carried out based on the consent until the revocation remains unaffected.

To exercise your rights, please contact the responsible body or data protection officer listed under section 2.

In addition, you have a right of objection, which is explained in more detail at the end of this privacy policy.

You also have the option to file a complaint with a data protection authority, Art. 77 GDPR. The right of appeal is without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy. The data protection authority responsible for us is:

Landesbeauftragte für Datenschutz und Informationsfreiheit Nordrhein-Westfalen
Postfach 20 04 44
40102 Düsseldorf

30. August 2018

Information about your right of objection according to Art. 21 of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

"For reasons that arise from your particular situation, you have the right to object to the processing of your personal data at any time pursuant to Article 6 para. 1 f of the GDPR (data processing on the basis of a balance of interests); this also applies to any profiling based on this provision as defined in Article 4 No. 4 GDPR.

If you file your objection, we will no longer process your personal data unless we can estab¬lish compelling legitimate grounds for processing that outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing is for the purposes of asserting, exercising or defending legal claims.

In individual cases, we may also process your personal data in order to generate direct mail. You have the right to object to the processing of your personal data used for such advertising at any time; this also applies to profiling insofar as it is associated with such direct mail advertising.

If you object to the processing for direct marketing, we will no longer process your personal data for these purposes.

The objection can be informal and should ideally be addressed with the responsible body or data protection officer listed in the privacy statement under section 2."
