Data privacy protection

We would like to inform you about the type, extent and purpose of the collection and use of your personal data provided to us as well as their processing and use.  

Collection and processing of data
Personal data is information about your identity. This includes, for example, information such as name, address, telephone number, e-mail address.  

In general, you can visit our homepage without leaving any personal data. This is the case if you only want to inform yourself about our company or our products and access the corresponding pages. However, we would like to point out that we log the IP addresses of the computers from which pages and contents of our homepage are accessed. This is a technical necessity and cannot be implemented otherwise.  

In certain cases we need your name and address as well as further information so that we can provide the requested services. This further personal data is only collected and stored if you provide this information voluntarily, for example in the context of an inquiry, a registration, an application as an employee (m/f/d) or potential supplier. You can object to the use of the data at any time. All you need to do is send an e-mail to info(at)interhydraulik.de or dsb(at)com-kom.de.  

Purpose, use and disclosure of personal data
If you provide us with personal data, we only use it to answer your inquiries, to carry out the services you use on our homepage, to prepare analyses to optimize our online offers, to use information and communication systems and within the framework of legal requirements. We will collect, process and use the personal data you provide online only for the purposes disclosed to you.

Your personal data will only be passed on or otherwise transferred to third parties if this is necessary for the purpose of carrying out the activities mentioned under the previous paragraph or if you have given your prior consent to the transfer. These third parties may not use the data for other purposes.  

We only disclose personal data if we are required to do so by law or a court decision or if disclosure is necessary to enforce or protect our General Terms and Conditions or other agreements. This applies accordingly with regard to the storage of data. The data is not disclosed for commercial purposes. Our employees and the companies commissioned by us are bound to secrecy and compliance with the provisions of the Federal Data Protection Act. Access to personal data by our employees is restricted to those employees who require the respective data for their professional tasks.  

Stored personal data will be deleted if you revoke your consent to its storage, if knowledge of the data is no longer required to fulfil the purpose for which it was stored or if its storage is inadmissible for other legal reasons, unless statutory retention regulations speak against its deletion. In this case, the data is blocked instead of being deleted.  

Upon written request, we will be happy to inform you about your personal data stored. We endeavour to store your personal data by taking all technical and organisational measures in such a way that they are not accessible to third parties. When communicating by e-mail, we cannot guarantee complete data security, so we recommend sending confidential information by post or transmitting data and information about our highly secure products.
