What personal data are collected and processed?
You can visit our websites without us requiring any personal data from you. We only learn the name of your Internet Service Provider, the website from which you visit us and the pages that you visit on our website. Personal data are only requested and processed if you use specific services. Your attention is then specifically drawn to this in the menu.
For what purposes do we collect and process your personal data?
As we are constantly endeavouring in a continuous process to improve both our services and your experience with our websites, the above general data are evaluated statistically. However, for this purpose we are interested in your personal opinion and your sphere in this connection. That is why at some points we request you to provide additional information. This information is voluntary and we naturally treat it confidentially.
If you use our services, generally we only collect such data as we need to provide the services. In as far as we ask you for any further data, this comprises voluntary information. The personal data are processed solely to perform the service requested and to maintain our own justified business interests.
Are personal data passed on to third parties?
We will only pass on your personal data to third parties in as far as this is absolutely necessary to provide the service requested. Beyond this we will not disclose, pass on, sell or otherwise market your personal data to other enterprises or institutions unless your express declaration of agreement to this is received. The situation is different if we are obligated to disclose and transmit the data by law or by a court judgement.
Alternatively, you can view and change your current cookie settings for this website here.
You have the possibility to contact us in several ways. By contact form, by e-mail, by telephone or by post. If you contact us, we will use the personal data that you voluntarily provide to us for the sole purpose of contacting you and processing your enquiry.
The legal basis for this data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 letter a), Art. 6 para. 1 letter b), Art. 6 para. 1 letter c) GDPR and Art. 6 para. 1 letter f) GDPR.
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States.
Because of the activation of the IP anonymization, Google will truncate/anonymize the last octet of the IP address for Member States of the European Union as well as for other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.
Only in exceptional cases, the full IP address is sent to and shortened by Google servers in the USA.
On behalf of the website provider Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website provider. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google.
Use of IP addresses
It is pointed out that this website uses Google Analytics with the extension "_anonymizeIp()" and therefore IP addresses are only processed in abbreviated form in order to exclude direct personal references.
We have taken technical and organisational measures to prevent the personal data you provide against loss, destruction, tampering and unauthorised access. This includes the encrypted transmission of data using sha256RSA (2048 bits) signature algorithm. All our staff and third parties participating in data processing are obligated to observe the German Federal Data Protection Act and treat personal data confidentially.
We reserve the right to modify this declaration at any time. It does not constitute any contractual or other formal right vis-à-vis or on behalf of any party.
Basic data protection regulation for social media
In the following we would like to inform you about the handling of your data in accordance with Art. 13 of the Basic Data Protection Ordinance (DSGVO).
We, BÜFA Thermoplastic Composites GmbH & Co. KG, operate the following social media sites:
Besides us, there is also the operator of the social media platform itself. In this respect, he is also another responsible person who carries out data processing over which we have only limited influence. At those points where we can exert influence and parameterise data processing, we work within the framework of the possibilities available to us towards data protection-compliant handling by the operator of the social media platform. In many places, however, we cannot influence the data processing by the operator of the social media platform and do not know exactly which data it processes.
Data processing by us
The data you enter on our social media pages such as comments, videos, pictures, likes, public messages, etc. are published by the social media platform and are not used or processed by us at any time for other purposes. We only reserve the right to delete content if this should be necessary. We may share your content on our site if this is a function of the social media platform and communicate with you via the social media platform. The legal basis is Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f DSGVO. Data processing is carried out in the interest of our public relations and communication activities.
If you wish to object to a specific data processing on which we have an influence, please contact the contact data stated in the imprint. We will then check your objection.
If you send us an inquiry on the social media platform, we may also refer you to other, secure communication channels that guarantee confidentiality, depending on the answer required. You always have the possibility to send us confidential inquiries to our address stated in the imprint.
As already mentioned, at those points where the provider of the social media platform gives us the opportunity, we make sure that our social media pages conform as closely as possible to data protection requirements. In particular, we therefore do not use the demographic, interest-based, behavior-based or location-based target group definitions for advertising that the operator of the social media platform may make available to us. Overall, we do not use the social media platform for advertising purposes. With regard to statistics provided to us by the provider of the social media platform, we can only influence these to a limited extent and cannot switch them off. However, we make sure that no additional optional statistics are made available to us.
Data processing by the operator of the social media platform
The operator of the social media platform uses web tracking methods. Web tracking can also take place regardless of whether you are logged in or registered with the social media platform. As already mentioned, we can hardly influence the web tracking methods of the social media platform. For example, we cannot turn it off.
Please be aware: It cannot be excluded that the provider of the social media platform may use your profile and behavior data, for example to evaluate your habits, personal relationships, preferences, etc.. In this respect, we have no influence on the processing of your data by the provider of the social media platform.
Further information on data processing by the provider of the social media platform and other possible objections can be found in the provider's data protection declaration:
