Data Privacy Policy

At HEINKEL Drying and Separation Group, we are happy about your visit on our website. In order to improve our website for you, we keep on optimizing functions and services of this site. By using our website service, you may submit your personal data to us. We are committed to handling all Personal Data with care and propriety wherever and however it is used or stored and will comply with the data protection law.

Collecting Personal Information

Personal data
Personal Data is legally defined as “any information relating to an identified or identifiable person (‘data subject’); an identifiable person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identification number or to one or more factors specific to his physical, physiological, mental, economic, cultural or social identity.” Examples are name, address, photo, birthday, credit card number, phone number.

Anonymous Data Collection
While accessing our website some information on site visitorship will be logged, such as
•    IP address
•    Type and version of internet browser
•    System software used
•    Referrer URL (the website that linked to ours)
•    Time of server request

HEINKEL cannot use this data to identify the data subject. 

The data will not be combined with other data sources and will be used solely to improve the design, contents and functionality of the website. 

Personal Data Collection
We do not collect any information from the website that can be used to identify you unless you choose to provide it. For example, you can choose to provide your email address and additional personal contact or information via the contact form. Insofar as we ask for information which is not required to contact you, we always mark these as optional. This information serves us to specify our answer and to improve the handling of your request. Submitting this information to us is voluntary. By giving us specific ways to contact you, you agree that we may use this information to answer to your request.
You can always revoke your consent effective from the day after your revocation. Please contact our data protection officer in order to do so.

Personal information you submit to us is kept confidential, stored securely, and retained only for as long as it is required for the purpose for which it was given. 

Processing of your information by HEINKEL and its service providers is regulated by German data privacy law and protected by appropriate security measures.

Application Process

If you send us an application for a job via email, we will use your data solely to work on your application and we will not transfer it to third parties. Please note that applications via email will be transferred to us in an unencrypted form.

Newsletter

In order to register for a newsletter service provided by HEINKEL, we need at least your e-mail address so that we know where to send the newsletter. All other information is supplied on a voluntary basis. 
As a general rule, we employ the double opt-in method for the registration. In other words, after you have registered for the service and informed us of your e-mail address, you will receive an e-mail in return from us, containing a link that you must use to confirm your registration. Your registration and confirmation will be recorded. The newsletter will not be sent until this has been done. This procedure is used to ensure that only you yourself can register with the newsletter service under the specified e-mail address. You must confirm your registration as soon as possible after receiving our e-mail, otherwise your registration and e-mail address will be erased from our database. Until we receive your confirmation, our newsletter service will refuse to accept any other registration requests using this e-mail address.

You can cancel subscriptions to our newsletters at any time. To do so, either send us an e-mail or follow the link at the end of the newsletter.

Sharing Data with Third Parties

Personal information you provide will not be sold or rented or made public. Personal information is never shared with third parties unless it is necessary to fulfill the contract or we have your permission or are required to disclose the information by law.

As far as our data processors get in touch with your personal data, we make sure that they comply with the law in the same way we do.

Optimizing the Website

Cookies
We use cookies to optimize our website.

Google Analytics
According to the agreement between Google and the Commissioner for Data Protection and Freedom of Information of Hamburg, Google Analytics can be used in Germany under certain conditions. We would like to reiterate that we strictly adhere to the guidelines set by the German data protection authorities. In particular, we altered the tracking code for Google Analytics by implementing the IP mask function '_gat._anonymizeIp' thereby ensuring that visitors' IP addresses are anonymised.

Please note the following information about Google Analytics: 
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyse how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States.

In case of activation of the IP anonymisation, Google will truncate/anonymise the last octet of the IP address for Member States of the European Union as well as for other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases, the full IP address is sent to and shortened by Google servers in the USA. On behalf of the website provider Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website provider. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser. However, please note that if you do this, you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. 

Furthermore you can prevent Google’s collection and use of data (cookies and IP address) by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.

You can also prevent the acquisition by Google Analytics by clicking on the following Google Analytics deactivation. An opt-out cookie will be set to prevent the future collection of your information when you visit this website. Further information can be found under http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/gb.html or under https://www.google.com/intl/en-GB/policies/privacy/.
