The SieMatic Möbelwerke GmbH & Co. KG (hereinafter “SieMatic”) takes your privacy very seriously and adheres strictly to legal regulations. We are committed to your privacy and protecting the confidentiality of your data. The following statement gives an overview this protection and what kind of data is collected for what purpose.
1. Who is the responsible party?
Per the Data Protection Act and the TMG, the responsible office is SieMatic Möbelwerke GmbH & Co. KG, August-Siekmann-Straße 1-5, D-32584 Löhne, Germany.
Responsible for the content: Jörg Overlack
2. Collection of general information
While you access our website, general information that is automatically recorded includes: Name of the webpage and files accessed, date and time of access, volume of data transferred, notification of successful download, browser type and version/release, the user’s operating system, referring URL (previously visited site), IP address and the provider. This is exclusively information that does not identify you personally. We only use this information for statistical analysis, and for the purpose of operating, securing, and optimizing our websites.
3. Handling of personal data
Personal data is information by which a person is identified, or can be identified. This includes name, the e-mail address or phone number. However, data on preferences, interests, memberships or viewed website are also considered personal data. Personal data is only collected by us, and used and disseminated, where allowed by law or with an individual’s consent.
4. Terms for online forms
On our website we collect personal data (e.g. first name, surname, address, telephone number, email address, etc.) in the following cases:
4.1 "Contact" Form
Your data is stored only for processing your request and for possible follow-up questions. If you have agreed to the disclosure of your data accordingly, your data will be forwarded to one of our dealers for contact by telephone or email.
4.2 “Order Brochures” Form
Your data will be used to process your order. If you have consented to the disclosure of your data, your data will be forwarded accordingly to one of our dealers for contact by telephone or email.
Please note that data transmission over the Internet (e.g. when communicating by e-mail or via forms) can have security vulnerabilities. Complete protection of data against unauthorized access by third parties cannot be guaranteed.
5. How long will data be stored?
We adhere to the principles of reduction and economy of data. We therefore store your personal data only as long as is necessary to achieve the specified purposes, or for storage time limits dictated by lawmakers.
6. Your rights of access, rectification, blocking, cancellation and opposition
You have the right at any time to obtain information about your personal data being stored by SieMatic. Likewise, you have the right to rectify, block or, apart from the mandatory data storage for processing transactions, delete your personal data. Please consult with SieMatic’s data protection officers.
8. Use of Google Analytics
9. Integration of services and content by third parties
It may happen that this website may incorporate third-party content, such as maps from Microsoft, or graphics from other websites. This usually requires the collection of the user’s IP address by the providers of this content (hereafter referred to as “third party”). The IP address makes it possible for the third party to send content to the user’s browser; the IP address is thus necessary for the presentation of that content. We strive to only provide these IP addresses to respective third parties for the delivery of content. However, we have no control over whether the third-party uses or saves IP addresses for statistical purposes.
10. Social media
We offer on our website the use of a feature called „social media buttons“ and to protect your data, we use a link solution. These buttons are thus only included on the website as graphics that contain links to the appropriate website provider indicated by the graphic. Clicking on one of these images will forward you to the services of the respective provider; only then will your data be sent to the provider. Unless the user clicks on the graphic, no exchange between the user and the social media button providers takes place. Information on the collection and handling of personal data on these social networking sites can be found in the Terms of the respective providers.
12. Questions for the data protection office
If you have further questions or suggestions regarding data protection, please contact our Privacy Officer, Mr. Andreas Durnio: firstname.lastname@example.org
