We are pleased about your visit to our website and about your interest in our company. We believe protection of privacy to be a customer-oriented attribute of quality. The protection of your personal data and the safeguarding of your right of personality are important to us. We process and use personal data that are collected when visiting our websites in accordance with the currently applicable statutory provisions on the protection of personal data. Our websites may contain links to other providers to which this Privacy Statement does not extend.
Collection and processing of personal data
When you visit our websites, our servers automatically store technical access data, such as the IP address of the computer requesting the data, the objects that you requested and viewed when visiting us, as well as the time and date of the request. However, these data cannot be attributed to a specific individual. We use this technical access information solely in order to make our websites more attractive and user-friendly and, in some cases, to spot technical problems on our websites early on.
In accordance with the principle of data avoidance and minimisation, we collect and store personal data only if they are absolutely necessary for the purpose desired by you and if you voluntarily provided them. We use your personal data in order to process your order, to respond to your inquiry, to enable you to access specific information and offers, or to provide special services to you.
Use and disclosure of personal data and limitation of purpose
We use your personal data only for the purposes indicated on this information page about privacy. In addition, personal data are collected, processed, or used by us only if, after carefully weighing all interests, this is necessary in order to safeguard the justified business interests of Neuland GmbH & Co. KG.
Absent your express consent, we will disclose to the involved subsidiaries and business partners the personal data provided by you only to the extent necessary for processing the order, and we will not disclose them to other third parties or, in particular, sell them to commercial users or otherwise convey them to such parties in any other form for use.
Information, correction and deletion of your data
In accordance with applicable law, you may at any time inquire in writing about the data about you that is stored with us. We will then send you a corresponding notification. Please address your inquiry to our data protection officer (see below). You can also instruct him or her to correct or delete your data.
The websites use so-called “cookies” at several locations. They are designed to make our websites more effective, secure, and user-friendly. Cookies are small text files that are placed on your hard drive and stored by your browser. Most of the cookies we use are so-called “session cookies”. They are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Cookies do not cause any damage to your computer and do not contain any viruses.
Google Analytics and Google Remarketing
This website uses Google Analytics and Google Remarketing. These are services of Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, which are text files stored on your computer that enable analysis of the way you interact with the site. Information generated by the cookie on your interaction with this website (including your IP address) is transferred to a Google server in the U.S. and stored there. Google then deletes the last three numbers in your IP address, meaning that it is no longer possible to unambiguously attribute the IP address. Google complies with the data protection provisions of the U.S.-EU Safe Harbor framework and is certified under the Safe Harbor programme administered by the U.S. Department of Commerce.
Google will use this information to analyse your interaction with the website, to generate reports for the site operator on website activities, and to provide other services in connection with website and Internet use. In addition, Google may disclose this information to third parties where required to do so by law or if third parties process these data on behalf of Google.
Third-party providers, including Google, place advertisements on websites on the Internet. Third-party providers, including Google, use stored cookies in order to place advertisements on the basis of prior visits by a user to this website.
However, you should be aware that this may prevent you from being able to use all functions of this website to the full extent. By using this website, you declare that you are in agreement with the processing by Google of the data collected about you in the previously described manner and for the previously designated purpose.
The collection and storage of data can be revoked at any time with prospective effect. You can find further information about Google’s provisions here.
If you would like to receive the newsletter offered on the website, we need a valid email address from you, as well as information that enables us to verify that you are the owner of the indicated email address or that its owner agrees to receive the newsletter. Additional data are not collected. You can at any time revoke your consent to the storage of data, the email address, and its use for sending the newsletter.
Security of your data
The data disclosed by you are protected by us through suitable technical and organisational means in order to protect them against accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction, or access by unauthorised individuals. Our security measures are checked and improved on an ongoing basis in accordance with technological developments and organisational abilities.
Your trust is important to us. For this reason, we are at all times happy to answer any questions with respect to the processing of your personal data. If you have any questions that could not be answered by this Privacy Statement, or should you subsequently desire more detailed information, please get in touch with the data protection officer at any time.
