Privacy Policy

Thank you for visiting our website and for your interest in the HEINKEL Drying and Separation Group and our services. To make you feel safe and comfortable while visiting our website, we take the protection of your personal data and its confidential treatment very seriously.

With this information on data protection we would therefore like to inform you when we store which data and for what purpose we use it - naturally in compliance with the applicable data protection regulations.

Should you have any further questions regarding the handling of your personal data, please do not hesitate to contact our Chief Privacy Officer, whose contact details you will find below.

The constant technological development, changes in our services or the legal situation as well as other reasons may require adjustments to our data protection information. We therefore reserve the right to change this privacy policy at any time and ask you to inform yourself regularly about the current status.

General information

Unless otherwise stated in the following sections, no personal data is collected, processed or used when using our websites.

When you access our internet pages, our web servers automatically collect general information. This includes the type of web browser, the operating system used, the domain name of the Internet service provider, the IP address of the computer used, the website from which you visit us, the pages you visit on our site and the date and duration of your visit.

This data cannot be used by us to identify the individual user. We only evaluate the information statistically and use it exclusively to improve the attractiveness, contents and functionalities of our websites.

Definition of personal data

In the EU-General Data Protection Regulation (EU-GDRP), personal data are defined as follows:

All information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter "data subject"); an identifiable natural person is one who can be identified directly or indirectly, in particular by assignment to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more special features that express the physical, physiological, genetic, psychological, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.

Legal basis for the collection of personal data

Insofar as we obtain your consent for the processing of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing of your personal data.

When processing your personal data to fulfil a contract between you and the HEINKEL Drying and Separation Group, Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures.

Insofar as the processing of personal data is required to fulfil a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c GDPR serves as the legal basis.

If processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the first-mentioned interest, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing.

Data erasure and storage time

The personal data of the person concerned will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage ceases to apply. Furthermore, data may be stored if this has been provided for by the European or national legislator in EU regulations, laws or other provisions to which the person responsible is subject. The data will also be blocked or deleted if a storage period prescribed by the aforementioned standards expires, unless there is a need for further storage of the data for the conclusion or fulfilment of a contract.

Collection and processing of personal data

Personal data is only collected if you provide it voluntarily, for example to carry out an order, a survey, a competition or a registration for personalised services. There you will be informed about the intended purpose of processing and, if necessary, asked for your consent to storage.

The personal data collected within the framework of our websites will only be used without your consent for order processing or processing your enquiries and, if necessary, passed on to the responsible Group company. Only with your consent will your data be used in a centrally managed customer and interested party database managed under the responsibility of the HEINKEL Drying and Separation Group and your data will be merged into the HEINKEL Drying and Separation Group. The use of this data is limited to advertising purposes and is only possible for HEINKEL Drying and Separation Group companies in the EU. You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future.

Your data will not be sold, rented or made available to third parties in any other way than described here. Personal data will only be transferred to state institutions and authorities within the framework of mandatory national legislation. Our employees, agencies and dealers are bound by us to the strictest confidentiality.

Contact/ service contacts

You have the possibility to contact us via our e-mail address, by phone, or via our contact form. The personal data transmitted to us in this way will of course only be used for the purpose for which you made them available to us when contacting us.

If we use our contact form to request information that is not required to establish contact, we have always marked it as optional. These details serve us to concretise your inquiry and to improve the processing of your request. A communication of this information takes place expressly on voluntary basis and with your consent. If this involves information on communication channels (e.g. e-mail address, telephone number), you also agree that we may contact you via this communication channel in order to respond to your request.

You can of course revoke this consent at any time in the future. Please contact our data protection officer, whose contact details you will find below.

Newsletter

You have the possibility to subscribe to our free newsletter. With this newsletter you will receive all current news and information about our offers at regular intervals. To receive the newsletter you need a valid e-mail address. We will check the e-mail address you have entered to make sure that you are actually the owner of the e-mail address provided or that the owner is authorized to receive the newsletter. We will do this by sending you an e-mail to the e-mail address you provide, and you will confirm receipt of this e-mail. After confirming the e-mail you are then subscribed to our newsletter.

When you register for the newsletter, we will save your IP address, the date and time of your registration. This is purely for security reasons in the event that a third party misuses your e-mail address and subscribes to our newsletter without your knowledge. We do not collect any further data for this purpose and these are used exclusively to subscribe to the newsletter.

You can unsubscribe from our newsletter at any time. Details on how to unsubscribe from our newsletter can be found in the confirmation e-mail and in each individual newsletter. After the cancellation your data collected to subscribe to the newsletter will be deleted immediately.

Candidatures

You can also apply to our company electronically. We will of course use your details exclusively for processing your application and will not pass them on to third parties. Please note that e-mails sent unencrypted are not access-protected.

Data transmission to other corporate entities

A transfer of your data to third parties outside the HEINKEL Drying and Separation Group does not take place in principle, unless we are legally obliged to do so, or the transfer of data is necessary for the execution of the contractual relationship or you have expressly consented to the transfer of your data beforehand. External service providers and partner companies only receive your data if this is necessary to process their request. In these cases, however, the scope of the transmitted data is limited to the required minimum.

Data transmission to external service providers (contractors)

Your data will be passed on to service partners if they work on our behalf and support the HEINKEL Drying and Separation Group in the provision of their services.

Processing of your personal data by contracted service providers takes place within the scope of order processing in accordance with Art. 28 GDPR.

The aforementioned service providers only have access to such personal information as is necessary for the performance of their respective activities. These service providers are prohibited from disclosing your personal information or using it for other purposes, in particular for their own advertising purposes.

Where external service providers come into contact with your personal data, we have taken legal, technical and organisational measures and carried out regular checks to ensure that they also comply with the applicable data protection regulations.

Your personal data will not be passed on commercially to other companies.

Website optimization tools

When collecting personal data using website optimisation tools, we refer to our legitimate interest pursuant to Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR in conjunction with Recital No. 47, according to which direct mail generally constitutes a legitimate interest. Your interests, fundamental rights and freedoms do not outweigh our interest in advertising, as we provide you with comprehensive information about data collection within the framework of our privacy policy and you have the option of opting out (via link or browser settings) at any time. In addition, we only use pseudonymous tracking.

LinkedIn social plugin

Our homepage integrates plugins of the social network LinkedIn of LinkedIn Corporation, 2029 Stierlin Court, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (hereinafter referred to as "LinkedIn"). You can recognize the LinkedIn Plugins by the LinkedIn logo on our site (white "in" on blue background).

To prevent unwanted data transfer, the plugins on this website are deactivated by default.

Activating the plugin establishes a connection between your browser and LinkedIn's server. The plugins can of course be deactivated at any time.

When the plugin is activated, LinkedIn receives information such as your IP address, a message that you have visited our site and other browser-related information. If you click the LinkedIn button ("Share Button") while logged into your LinkedIn account, you can link the contents of our pages on your LinkedIn profile. This allows LinkedIn to associate the visit to our pages with your user account. We would like to point out that we, as the provider of the pages, are not aware of the content of the transmitted data or its use by LinkedIn. Details on data collection (purpose, scope, further processing, use) as well as your rights and setting options can be found in LinkedIn's data protection information.
