General information on how your data is handled
we.CONECT Global Leaders GmbH takes the protection of your personal data very seriously. Collect, processing and using your personal details is part of our service offer, as our aim is to provide user-friendly and customer-oriented services. The following information describes what information we collect from you and how we handle it. As a matter of principle we act in terms of the German Data Protection Act.
What data is collected?
As a matter of principle you can visit our website without disclosing your personal data to us. However we require you to register for certain services on our website, when we will ask for details such as your name and e-mail address. This data is called inventory data. Whenever possible we give you the opportunity to decide whether you want to disclose your data to us. However sometimes data is collected automatically. For example your computer automatically sends us information such as IP address, browser type or access times, when you use our website. This data is called usage data.
(1) Your personal data, insofar as these are necessary for this contractual relationship (inventory data) in terms of its establishment, organization of content and modifications, are used exclusively for fulfilling the contract. For goods to be delivered, for instance, your name and address must be relayed to the supplier of the goods.
(2) Without your explicit consent or a legal basis, your personal data are not passed on to third parties outside the scope of fulfilling this contract. After completion of the contract, your data are blocked against further use. After expiry of deadlines as per tax-related and commercial regulations, these data are deleted unless you have expressly consented to their further use.
