Data Privacy Policy

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

With these notes on data protection, we would therefore like to inform you about when we store which data and for what purpose we use them – of course in compliance with the applicable data protection regulations.

If you have any further questions about the handling of your personal data, please do not hesitate to contact our Group Data Privacy Officer, whose contact details can be found below.

Continuous technological development, changes to our services or the legal situation, and other reasons may necessitate adjustments to our privacy policy. We therefore reserve the right to change this data protection statement at any time and ask you to inform yourself regularly about the current status.

Definition of personal data
In the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), personal data is defined as follows:

Any 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 reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.

Legal basis for the collection and processing of personal data

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

When processing your personal data to fulfill a contract between you and HEINKEL Drying and Separation Group, Art. 6 (1) lit. b GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary for the performance of pre-contractual measures.

If processing of personal data is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 (1) lit. c GDPR serves as the legal basis.

If processing is necessary to protect 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 former interest, Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing.

Data deletion and storage period

The personal data of the data subject will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage no longer applies. In addition, storage may take place if this has been provided for by the European or national legislator in Union regulations, laws or other provisions to which the controller is subject. 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 performance of a contract.

Collection and processing of personal data

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

The personal data collected within the scope of our websites will be used for order processing or processing your inquiries and, if necessary, passed on to the responsible group company for this purpose.

Only with your consent will your data also be used for advertising purposes in a centrally managed customer and interested party database administered under the responsibility of the HEINKEL Drying and Separation Group, and your data will be merged within the HEINKEL Drying and Separation Group. The use of this data remains limited to advertising purposes and is only possible for HEINKEL Drying and Separation Group companies in the EU. You can withdraw your respective 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 legal provisions. Our employees, agencies and dealers are bound by us to the strictest confidentiality.

Data processing when visiting our website

During the just informational use of the website, i.e., if you do not register or otherwise transmit information to us (e.g., via a contact form), we collect the following technical information (log file data):

  • Information about the browser type and version used.
  • The operating system of the accessing device
  • Host name of the accessing computer
  • The IP address of the accessing device
  • Date and time of access
  • Websites and resources (images, files, other page content) that were accessed on our website
  • Websites from which the user’s system accessed our website (referrer tracking)
  • Message as to whether the retrieval was successful
  • Amount of data transferred

The collection of this data is technically necessary in order to display our website to you and to ensure stability and security. We (and our service provider) do not regularly know who is behind an IP address. We do not combine the data listed above with other data.

The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f GDPR. Since the collection of data for the provision of the website and the storage in log files are absolutely necessary for the operation of the website and to protect against misuse, our legitimate interest in data processing prevails at this point.

The deletion of the aforementioned technical data takes place as soon as it is no longer required to ensure the compatibility of the website for all visitors, but no later than 3 months after retrieval of our website.

Contact/Service Contact

You have the possibility to contact us via our e-mail address, by phone, or via our contact form. When you contact us, the data you provide will be stored by us in order to answer your questions and process your requests. The legal basis in this respect is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f GDPR.

The following data is collected:

  • First and last name
  • Company name
  • E-mail address
  • Subject
  • Machine type
  • Parts in contact with product
  • Your message

As far as we ask for input via our contact form that is not required for contacting us, we have always marked it as optional (without asterisk). This information is used to specify your request and to improve the processing of your request. Your communication of this information to us is expressly on a voluntary basis and with your consent, Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a GDPR. Insofar as this involves information on communication channels (for example, e-mail address, telephone number), you also consent to us contacting you via this communication channel, if necessary, in order to respond to your request.

You can, of course, withdraw this consent at any time for the future. To do so, please contact our data protection officer, whose contact details can be found below.

Your data, which we have received in the course of contacting you, will be deleted as soon as it is no longer required to achieve the purpose for which it was collected, your request has been fully processed and no further communication with you is necessary or desired by you.

As the data controller, our company has implemented numerous technical and organizational measures to ensure the most complete protection of personal data processed through this website. Nevertheless, internet-based data transmissions can generally have security gaps. Absolute protection cannot be guaranteed; in any case, sending unencrypted e-mails is not secure. We therefore ask you not to send sensitive data by unencrypted e-mail, but to use either encrypted communication channels (e.g. our contact form) or the postal service.

Newsletter

General information

You have the possibility to subscribe to our free newsletter. With this newsletter you will receive all the latest news and information about our offers at regular intervals. The content of the individual newsletter is briefly described within the scope of the registration. The legal basis for sending the respective newsletter is your consent according to Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a GDPR in conjunction with. § Section 7 (2) No. 3 UWG (German Act against Unfair Competition) or the legal permission according to Section 7 (3) UWG.

For the registration to our newsletters we use the so-called double-opt-in procedure. This means that after your registration, we will send you an e-mail to the e-mail address you provided, in which we ask you to confirm that you wish to receive the newsletter. If you do not confirm your registration, your information will be automatically deleted after 7 days. Only after your confirmation you will receive our newsletter.

Mandatory information for sending the newsletter is only your e-mail address. The provision of further data is voluntary: this data is used to address you personally. After your confirmation, we store your e-mail address for the purpose of sending the newsletter and until withdrawn. We also store your IP address current at the time of registration, the time of registration and confirmation for up to three years after registration (statute of limitations). The purpose of this procedure is to be able to prove your registration in case of doubt and, if necessary, to clarify any misuse of your personal data. The legal basis for logging the registration is our legitimate interest according to Art. 6 para. 1 p.1 lit. f GDPR in proving a formerly given consent, see also Art. 7 para. 1 GDPR.

You can withdraw your consent to the sending of the newsletter at any time and unsubscribe from the newsletter. You can declare the withdrawal by clicking on the link provided in every newsletter email or by sending an email to mail@heinkel-group.de.

After unsubscribing, your data collected for receiving the newsletter will be deleted immediately.

Newsletter tracking

We would like to point out that we evaluate your user behaviour when sending the newsletter in order to determine whether and when the newsletter was opened. For this evaluation, the emails sent contain so-called web beacons or tracking pixels that are stored on our server and loaded when the newsletter is opened. Technical information such as browser type, time of opening and the shortened IP address are transmitted.

For evaluations, we link the aforementioned data and the web beacons with an individual ID. Links received in the newsletter also contain this ID and allow us to analyse your click behaviour.

The data is processed pseudonymously, so the IDs are not directly linked to your other personal data. Nevertheless, the individual newsletter recipient is theoretically identifiable due to the technical data, a direct personal reference is excluded. The legal basis for this data processing is your consent, Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a GDPR.

You may withdraw your consent at any time with effect for the future. In this case, the withdrawal includes the entire newsletter, as a separate withdrawal of tracking is unfortunately not technically possible. To do so, simply click the unsubscribe link provided in each email or send an email to mail@heinkel-group.de.

Such tracking is also not possible if you have deactivated the display of images by default in your e-mail program. In this case, the newsletter will not be fully displayed to you and you may not be able to use all of its features. If you display the images manually, the tracking mentioned above will take place.

The information from the tracking is stored as long as you are subscribed to the newsletter. After unsubscribing, the data is anonymized and used for purely statistical purposes.

The data you provide for the purpose of receiving the newsletter will be stored by us until you unsubscribe from the newsletter and will be deleted after you unsubscribe from the newsletter. Data that has been stored by us for other purposes remains unaffected by this.

Applications

You can apply to our company electronically via e-mail. Please note that unencrypted e-mails will not be transmitted without access protection.

Your details will be used for processing your application and deciding whether to establish an employment relationship. The legal basis is § 26 para. 1 in conjunction with. para. 8 sentence 2 BDSG (German Federal Data Protection Act). Furthermore, your personal data may be processed insofar as this should be necessary for the defence of asserted legal claims against us arising from the application process. The legal basis for this is Art. 6 para. 1 p.1 lit. f GDPR. The legitimate interest in the processing also lies in the stated purpose.

Insofar as an employment relationship arises between you and us, we may, in accordance with Section 26 (1) BDSG, further process the personal data already received from you for the purposes of the employment relationship if this is necessary for the implementation or termination of the employment relationship or for the exercise or fulfillment of the rights and obligations of the representation of the interests of employees resulting from a law or a collective agreement, a works agreement or a service agreement (collective agreement).

Your application data will not be processed beyond the described use.

Your personal data will be deleted after completion of the application process after six months at the latest, provided that no other legitimate interests on our part oppose deletion or you have not given us your consent for longer storage. Other legitimate interest in this sense is, for example, a duty to provide evidence in proceedings under the German General Equal Treatment Act (AGG).

Data transfer

As a matter of principle, your personal data will not be transferred to third parties unless we are legally obliged to do so, or the transfer of data is necessary for the performance of the contractual relationship, or you have previously expressly consented to the transfer of your data.

          a. to other Group companies

Your personal data will be used for order processing or processing your inquiries and, if necessary, passed on to the responsible group company for this purpose. The transfer of data to other group companies is thus based on Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. b GDPR, insofar as the transfer serves the fulfillment of a contract with you or the implementation of pre-contractual measures and on Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f GDPR, insofar as the transfer serves our legitimate interest in satisfactorily answering your contact request (for optional information in the contact: your consent, Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a GDPR).

Only with your consent will your data also be used for advertising purposes (e.g. newsletters) in a centrally managed customer and prospect database administered under the responsibility of the HEINKEL Drying and Separation Group, and your data will be merged within the HEINKEL Drying and Separation Group. The use of this data remains limited to advertising purposes and is only possible for HEINKEL Drying and Separation Group companies in the EU. You can withdraw your respective consent at any time with effect for the future.

We also only pass on personal data of our applicants within the group with your consent. The purpose of this is to be able to consider your application at another Group company, even if you were rejected for the Group company to which you applied. You can withdraw your consent at any time with effect for the future.

Other Group companies will only receive your data to the extent necessary to process your inquiry. In these cases, however, the scope of the data transmitted is limited to the minimum required.

           b. to external service providers (processors)

Your data will be passed on to external service providers if they act on our behalf and support the HEINKEL Drying and Separation Group in the provision of its services.

Processing of your personal data by service providers takes place within the scope of processing on behalf of a controller pursuant to Art. 28 GDPR.

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

Insofar as external service providers come into contact with your personal data, we have ensured through legal, technical and organizational measures as well as regular checks that they also comply with the applicable data protection regulations.

Please also refer to the data protection notices of the respective providers. The respective service provider is responsible for the content of third-party services, whereby we check the services for compliance with the legal requirements within the scope of reasonableness.

A commercial transfer of your personal data to other companies does not take place.

We attach importance to processing your data within the EU / EEA. However, it may happen that we use service providers who process data outside the EU / EEA. In these cases, we ensure that an appropriate level of data protection comparable to the standards within the EU is established at the recipient before transferring your personal data. This can be achieved, for example, via EU standard contracts or Binding Corporate Rules or special agreements to whose regulations the company may be subject.

Google Analytics uses cookies that enable an analysis of your use of our website. The information collected by means of the cookies about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

We use the function ‘anonymizeIP’ (so-called IP masking): Due to the activation of IP anonymization on this website, your IP address will be shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other data from Google.

LinkedIn Social Plugin

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

To prevent unwanted data transmission, the plugins are deactivated by default on this website. Only by clicking on the respective icon, the plugin is activated and data can be transmitted to the provider. For this purpose, a connection between your browser and the server of LinkedIn is established by activating the plugin. The plugins can, of course, be deactivated again at any time.

The legal basis for the data transfer is your consent according to Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a GDPR. You can withdraw this at any time with effect for the future.

If the plugin is activated, LinkedIn thereby receives information such as your IP address, a notification 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 content of our websites on your LinkedIn profile. This allows LinkedIn to associate the visit to our websites with your user account. We would like to point out that we, as the provider of the websites, have no knowledge 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 privacy policy. LinkedIn provides this information at https://www.linkedin.com/legal/privacy-policy?.

Social Bookmarks

So-called social bookmarks from YouTube are integrated on our website. Social bookmarks are Internet bookmarks with which the users of such a service can collect links and news messages. These are only integrated on our website as a link to the corresponding services. After clicking on the embedded graphic, you will be redirected to the page of the respective provider, i.e. only then will user information be transmitted to the respective provider. The legal basis for the data transfer is therefore your consent pursuant to Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. a GDPR, which you can withdraw at any time with effect for the future.

For information on the handling of your personal data when using these websites, please refer to the respective privacy policies of the providers.

We will inform you before the restriction is lifted.
