Thank you for your interest in Schaeffler Paravan Technologie GmbH & Co.KG and our products. When using our online offer, the protection of your privacy is of great importance. If personal data is processed, we comply with the applicable data protection regulations.
I. GENERAL INFORMATION ON DATA PROCESSING
1. SCOPE AND PURPOSE OF THE PROCESSING OF PERSONAL DATA
As a matter of principle, we collect and use your personal data only insofar as this is necessary for the provision of a functioning website and our content and services offered on the website. The collection and use of your personal data regularly only takes place with your consent. An exception applies in those cases in which the processing of the data is permitted by legal regulations.
2. LEGAL BASIS FOR DATA PROCESSING
Your personal data is processed on the basis of the EU Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO) and the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG). Insofar as you have given us consent to process personal data for specific purposes, Art. 6 (1) a DSGVO serves as the legal basis for the processing of personal data. Consent given can be revoked by you at any time. Please note that the revocation is only effective for the future. Processing that took place before the revocation is not affected. The processing of personal data in the context of the performance of contracts to which you are a party or for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, which are carried out at your request, is based on Art. 6 (1) lit. b DSGVO. The purposes of the data processing depend on the respective contractual documents and the subject matter of the contract. If processing of personal data is necessary to comply with a legal obligation to which our company is subject, Art. 6 (1) c DSGVO serves as the legal basis. If processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of Schaeffler Paravan Technologie GmbH & Co.KG or a third party (e.g. to assert legal claims and defend against legal disputes; to ensure IT security; to prevent criminal offences; for business management measures and further development of services and products) and if the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of you as the data subject do not outweigh the first-mentioned interest, Art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO serves as the legal basis for the processing.
3. DELETION OF DATA AND STORAGE PERIOD
We process and store your personal data as long as it is required to fulfil the respective purpose. Storage may also take place if this has been provided for by the European or national legislator in EU regulations, laws or other provisions to which we are subject as the responsible party. If the data is no longer required or if a storage period prescribed by the aforementioned standards has expired, your data will be deleted on a regular basis.
4. ACCESS TO PERSONAL DATA WITHIN SCHAEFFLER PARAVAN TECHNOLOGIE GMBH & CO.KG AND BY THIRD PARTIES
Within Schaeffler Paravan Technologie GmbH & Co.KG, access to your data is granted to those offices that require it within the framework of "least privilege" (allocation of user rights to the lowest possible extent) and the "need-to-know" principle (knowledge of data only when necessary). We may only pass on data to third parties outside Schaeffler Paravan Technologie GmbH & Co.KG if this is necessary, if a legal provision requires this, if you have consented or if commissioned processors have contractually undertaken to comply with the provisions of the DSGVO and the BDSG. Under these conditions, recipients of personal data may be: responsible internal departments and external service providers, if necessary.
5. TRANSFER OF PERSONAL DATA TO A THIRD COUNTRY OR TO AN INTERNATIONAL ORGANISATION
Data is only transferred to countries outside the EU/EEA (so-called third countries) if this is necessary or required by law, if you have given us your consent or within the scope of commissioned processing. If service providers in third countries are used, in addition to written instructions, they are obliged to comply with the level of data protection in Europe by agreeing to the EU standard contractual clauses.
6. IT SECURITY AND LINKS TO THIRD PARTY WEBSITES
Paravan Technologie GmbH & Co KG uses technical and organisational security measures to protect the data we have under our control against accidental or intentional destruction, manipulation, loss or against access by unauthorised persons. These security measures are constantly being further developed in accordance with the respective new technical possibilities. Our websites may contain links to websites of other providers. Our information on data protection does not apply to these websites.
7. OBLIGATION TO PROVIDE PERSONAL DATA
In the context of concluding a contract, you must provide the personal data that is required for the establishment, implementation and termination of the contract and the resulting obligations for performance or which Paravan Technologie GmbH & Co.KG is legally obliged to collect. Without this data, no contract with Paravan Technologie GmbH & Co.KG will be concluded. If we provide you with offers and services on this website that you can use voluntarily, there is no obligation to provide us with your data, but without your personal data you may not be able to use our offers and services.
8. "PROFILING" AND AUTOMATED DECISION MAKING
We do not use fully automated decision-making in accordance with Art. 22 DSGVO. Paravan Technologie GmbH & Co KG does not use "profiling" as a matter of principle. Should we use this in individual cases, we will inform you of this separately, insofar as this is required by law, and obtain your prior consent if necessary.
9. SOURCES OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA
We use data that we receive from you ourselves.
II. DATA PROCESSING OPERATIONS DURING THE PROVISION OF THE WEBSITE AND THE CREATION OF LOG FILES
When you visit our website, our web servers record and collect the name of your internet service provider, your IP address, the website from which you visit us, the web pages you visit on our site and the date and duration of your visit as standard. This data is stored in the log files of our systems. However, the use of the IP address is limited to the technically necessary extent and is shortened and thus only used anonymously, so that an assignment of the IP address to a user is not possible. The data is not linked to personal data.
The legal basis for the temporary storage of the data is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.
The temporary storage of the shortened IP address by our systems is technically necessary to enable delivery of the website to your end device. The storage in log files takes place in order to ensure the functionality of the website. An evaluation of the data for marketing purposes does not take place in this context. These purposes are also our legitimate interest in data processing according to Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.
The collection of data for the provision of the website and the storage of the data in log files is absolutely necessary for the operation of the website. Consequently, there is no possibility for you as a user to object.
III. DATA PROCESSING FOR SERVICES OFFERED ON THE WEBSITE
Various services are offered on our website for the use of which you are requested to provide personal data. The transmission of personal data by you to us is always voluntary.
1. USE OF OUR CONTACT AND ENQUIRY FORMS
There are contact and enquiry forms on the website that can be used to contact us electronically.
To use the contact forms, you must provide mandatory information marked with an asterisk in the corresponding input mask (e.g. your e-mail address). All other information is optional for you.

Your consent is obtained for the processing of the data as part of the enquiry process.
The data you provide in the input mask will only be used to process your contact. The legal basis for the processing of your personal data is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO.
The data will be deleted as soon as the communication process has been completed.
You have the option to revoke your consent to the processing of personal data at any time by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.

In order to use the information services, we require your e-mail address and other information marked as mandatory in the input mask, such as name, company and telephone number. The purpose of collecting this data is to send the advertising and information.

After sending the registration form, you will receive a confirmation e-mail from us to the e-mail address you provided.
