Data collection on our website
Who is responsible for data collection on this website?
Data processing on this website is carried out by the website operator. You can find the website operator’s contact details in the imprint for this website.
How do we collect your data?
Your data is collected in one respect by you communicating it to us. This can include data that you enter in a contact form, for example.
Other data is automatically collected by our IT systems when you visit the website. This is primarily technical data (e.g. the Internet browser, the operating system or the time at which the page is called up). This data is collected automatically as soon as you access our website.
What do we use your data for?
Some of the data is collected to ensure that the website is error-free. Other data may be used to analyse your user behaviour.
What rights do you have regarding your data?
You have the right at any time to receive information free of charge about the origin, recipient and purpose of your stored personal data. You also have the right to request the rectification, blocking or deletion of this data. You can contact us at any time for this purpose or for any other questions on the subject of data protection at the address given in the imprint. Furthermore, you have the right to complain to the competent supervisory authority.
Analysis tools and tools of third parties
Be mindful that data transmission over the Internet (e.g. communication by e-mail) can be subject to security vulnerabilities. Complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.
Note on the body responsible
The body responsible for data processing on this website is:
WLC Würth-Logistik GmbH & Co. KG
Data Protection Officer
74740 Adelsheim, Germany
The body responsible is the natural or legal person who alone or jointly with others decides on the purposes and means of processing personal data (names, e-mail addresses etc.).
Many data processing operations are possible only with your explicit consent. You can revoke your consent at any time. For this purpose, an informal notification by e-mail to us is sufficient. The legality of the data processing carried out prior to revocation remains unaffected by it.
Right of complaint to the competent supervisory authority
In the event of breaches of data protection law, the data subject shall have the right to lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority. The competent supervisory authority for data protection issues is the data protection officer of the federal state in which our company is based. A list of data protection officers and their contact details can be found at the following link:
Right to data transferability
You have the right to have data which we process automatically on the basis of your consent or in fulfilment of a contract handed over to you or to a third party in a common, machine-readable format. If you request direct transfer of the data to another responsible person, this will only be done as far as it is technically feasible.
SSL or TLS encryption
This site uses SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or requests that you send to us as the site operator. You can recognise an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from “http://” to “https://” and by the lock symbol in the browser line.
If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
Information, blocking, deletion
Within the framework of the applicable legal provisions, you have the right at any time to free information about your stored personal data, its origin and recipient, and the purpose of data processing and, if applicable, a right to the rectification, blocking or deletion of such data. You can contact us at any time for this purpose or for any other questions on the subject of personal data at the address given in the imprint.
Objection to advertising e-mails
The use of contact data published within the scope of the imprint obligation to send unsolicited advertising and information material is hereby objected to. The operators of the pages expressly reserve the right to take legal action against unsolicited mailing or e-mailing of spam and other similar advertising materials.
Some of the Internet pages use “cookies”. Cookies do not damage your computer and do not contain 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 by your browser.
Most of the cookies we use are "session cookies". They are deleted automatically 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 on your next visit.
You can configure your browser so that you are notified about the saving of cookies and allow these only in individual cases, accept cookies for certain cases or generally prohibit them, and to activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. If cookies are deactivated, the functionality of this website may be restricted.
Server log files
The provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in “server log files”, which your browser automatically transmits to us. This information is:
- Browser type and browser version
- Operating system used
- Referrer URL
- Host name of the accessing computer
- Time of the server request
- IP address
This data will not be merged with other data sources. The basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO, which permits the processing of data for the fulfilment of a contract or pre-contractual measures.
If you send us enquiries using the contact form, your details from the enquiry form, including any contact data you provided, will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the enquiry and in anticipation of follow-up questions. We will not pass this data on without your consent.
The processing of data entered in the contact form is therefore carried out exclusively on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO). You can revoke this consent at any time. For this purpose, an informal notification by e-mail to us is sufficient. The legality of the data processing operations carried out prior to revocation remains unaffected by it.
The data entered by you in the contact form will remain with us until you ask us to delete it, revoke your consent to storage, or the purpose for data storage no longer applies (for example after your request has been processed). Mandatory statutory provisions - in particular retention periods - remain unaffected.
We have activated the IP anonymisation function on this website. As a result, your IP address will be truncated by Google within member states of the European Union or other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area prior to transmission to the United States. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity, and to provide the website operator with other services relating to website activity and Internet usage. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics is not combined with other data from Google.
You can prevent the storage of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings in your browser software; please note, however, that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. You can also prevent Google from collecting the data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) and from processing this data by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at the following link https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.
