Privacy Statement

1. General remarks and mandatory information

Data Protection

The aim of data protection, and also our objective at Adolf Würth GmbH & Co. KG, is to ensure that personal data is handled in such a way that every data subject’s right to privacy is protected.

In order to achieve this objective, all functions responsible for the processing of personal data must observe applicable EU legislation (EU General Data Protection Regulation (EU GDPR)) and all national data protection laws.

Personal data may only be collected and processed subject to the EU GDPR or other applicable laws. The essential underlying principles of the EU GDPR are:

  • Lawfulness of processing, fairness of processing, transparency
  • Purpose limitation
  • Data minimization
  • Accuracy of data processing
  • Storage limitation and erasure concepts
  • Integrity and confidentiality

Other central objectives of Adolf Würth GmbH & Co. KG are to act responsibly when handling personal data, but also to use IT systems and applications in a risk-conscious manner.

 

Information duties of the controller and rights of the data subject

Name and contact details of the controller and, if applicable, the controller’s deputy

The controller responsible for data processing on this website is:

Adolf Würth GmbH & Co. KG
Reinhold-Würth-Straße 12–17
74653 Künzelsau-Gaisbach
Phone: +49 7940 15-0
Email: info@wuerth.com

The controller is the natural person or legal entity which, alone or jointly with others, determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data (e.g. names, email addresses, etc.).

Contact details of the data protection officer

You can contact our data protection officer at datenschutz@wuerth.com.

Purpose of data collection, processing or use

Adolf Würth GmbH & Co. KG is Germany's leading specialist in the sale of assembly and fastening materials.

The collection, processing or use of personal data serves this corporate purpose or supporting secondary purposes, such as customer service.

Groups of people concerned and related data or data categories

The groups of people concerned are

  • current employees,
  • former employees,
  • applicants,
  • potential customers,
  • customers,
  • suppliers,
  • service providers and
  • other business partners.

The relevant data includes all personal data that is necessary for the fulfillment of the purpose concerned. A detailed presentation of the types of personal data that are being processed is given in the following.

Legal grounds

The processing of personal data is only lawful if permitted by law, i.e. if there is a legal basis for the processing activity or the data subject has consented to the processing.

Personal data is only processed in our company in accordance with statutory provisions. These generally include,

  • when consent to the processing of personal data has been given (Article 6 (1a) EU GDPR),
  • when personal data has to be processed for the performance or initiation of a contract (Article 6 (1b) EU GDPR),
  • when personal data has to be processed to comply with legal requirements (Art. 6 (1c) EU GDPR),
  • when personal data is processed on the basis of a legitimate interest or a legitimate interest of a third party (Article 6 (1f) EU GDPR).

Special legal basis of data processing for contracts

Adolf Würth GmbH & Co. KG supplies almost exclusively to professionals. Unless agreed otherwise in individual cases, the legal bases we rely on when processing your personal data for the performance of a contract are as follows:

  1. If you are a registered businessperson within the meaning of the German Commercial Code (HGB) or a freelancer, processing your personal data is necessary for the performance of the contract or for the preparatory steps to enter into a contract (Art. 6 (1b) EU GDPR); or
  2. If you are an employee of a company, e.g. a purchasing agent, processing your personal data is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by Adolf Würth GmbH & Co. KG (Art. 6 (1f) EU GDPR). The bases of the legitimate interests of Adolf Würth GmbH & Co. KG—the sale of its goods and services—include, but are not limited to, the freedom to conduct a business and choose an occupation within the EU.

To improve legibility, the legal bases given above shall be referred to only as “data processing for the performance of a contract” in the following.

Potential recipients of personal data

The potential recipients of personal data include

  • public authorities if legally required,
  • service providers and other business partners as far as this is necessary for the purpose in question and allowed or required by a legal provision, or if the data subject has given his/her consent.

Planned data transfer to third countries or international organizations

If the transfer of data to third countries (non-EU countries) or international organizations is required, personal data shall be transferred solely for the purpose of concluding or complying with a contract in compliance with all applicable data protection requirements, provided the interests or rights and freedoms of the data subject do not override these legitimate interests. Should we transfer your data to a third country or an international organization in individual cases, we will provide you with all required information.

Time limit for the erasure of data

Personal data will be deleted in accordance with the legal or contractually established regulations on the disposal of data and considering any legal or contractually established retention periods. Most of these legal requirements are based on the German Commercial Code (HGB) and the German Fiscal Code (AO). The retention and documentation periods set out in these codes require data controllers to retain data for up to ten years after the end of a business relationship or pre-contractual legal transaction.

Other legal provisions may impose even longer retention periods on data controllers, for instance for the retention of evidence in accordance with statutory limitation periods. The general limitation period is three years. Special limitation periods of up to 30 years or longer may, however, apply in certain situations. Personal data, which is not subject to a legal or contractual retention period or erasure obligation, must be deleted immediately after it is no longer necessary in relation to the purposes for which it was collected or otherwise processed.

Your rights as a data subject (Art. 12 et seq. EU GDPR)

The data subject has various data protection rights. These rights are explained below. The contact details set out above can be used to exercise these rights.

Right of Access (Art. 15 EU GDPR), Right to Rectification (Art. 16 EU GDPR), Right to Erasure (Art. 17 EU GDPR), and Right to Restriction of Processing (Art. 18 EU GDPR).

Subject to the applicable legal regulations, you have the right to obtain information, at any time, free of charge, about all your personal data stored by the data controller, its origin, recipients and purpose of storage as well as, where applicable, the right to rectification, erasure or restricted processing of your data.

Right to object (Art. 21 EU GDPR)

Every data subject has the right to object to the processing of their personal data on the basis of Art. 6 (1f) EU GDPR or for direct marketing purposes. Upon receiving an objection to the processing of your personal data, we will carefully review your objection in each individual case. If your objection to the processing of your personal data requires us to delete your data, we will delete your data in accordance with statutory retention requirements. The objection shall not affect the admissibility of the processing carried out up to the objection.

Obligation to disclose data

Every data subject has the right to know whether the provision of personal data is a statutory or contractual requirement, or a requirement necessary to enter into a contract, as well as whether the data subject is obliged to provide the personal data and what the possible consequences of failure to provide such data would be.

Right to lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority

The data subject has the right to lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority if the data subject believes that the processing of personal data relating to him or her infringes his or her rights. The responsible supervisory authority for data protection issues is the data protection officer responsible for the federal state in which our company has its registered office. The data subject may also lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority responsible for the data subject’s habitual place of residence or place of the alleged infringement. A list of data protection officers and their contact details can be found at the following link: https://www.bfdi.bund.de/DE/Service/Anschriften/Laender/Laender-node.html;jsessionid=56BD747C1AAA8A959917F12D79B92695.intranet242.

Right to data portability

You have the right to have data which we process automatically on the basis of your consent or to perform a contract provided to you or to a third party in a commonly used, machine-readable format. If you request the direct transmission of the data to another controller, this will only be done if it is technically feasible.

Revocation of your consent to data processing

Many data processing operations can only be performed with your consent. You can revoke your consent at any time. All you need to do is send an informal e-mail to this effect to one of the email addresses given above. The withdrawal of consent shall not affect the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal.

Use of your data for (direct) marketing purposes

Irrespective of your subscription to our newsletter, we may use your data, and especially your email address, for (direct) marketing purposes. We are only using your data if you have not objected to the use of your data for this purpose. We would like to inform you in this statement, and every other contact, that you can object to the use of your data for (direct) marketing purposes at any time and without incurring any additional costs other than the usual transmission costs at basic rates.

SSL/TLS encryption

This website uses SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or requests that you send to us as the site operator. You can recognize an encrypted connection when you see that the address bar of your browser changes from “http://” to “https://” and when the lock symbol appears in your address bar.

These features are provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland. We have concluded a data processing agreement with Google. The use of Google Analytics may result in the transmission of personal data to the servers of Google LLC. in the USA. Google LLC. has concluded standard contractual clauses, as published by the European Commission, with us for the transmission of personal data to Google LLC. based in the USA. These standard contractual clauses can be viewed here: https://privacy.google.com/businesses/processorterms/.

IP anonymization

We have enabled the IP anonymization function on this website. As a result, Google shortens your IP address within the member states of the European Union or in other member states of the European Economic Area before transmitting data to the USA. Only under exceptional circumstances is the complete IP address transmitted to a Google server in the United States and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity, and providing other services relating to website activity and Internet usage for the website operator.

Demographics tracking in Google Analytics

We are also using the “Demographics” feature of Google Analytics. This allows us to generate reports on the age, gender, and interests of site visitors. This data is collected from interest-based advertising from Google and third-party visitor data. This data cannot be attributed to a specific person. You can disable this feature at any time by adjusting the ads settings in your Google account or by objecting to the collection of your data by Google Analytics by adapting your cookie preferences here.

Google Analytics remarketing

Our websites use Google Analytics’ remarketing features along with the cross-device features from Google AdWords and Google DoubleClick. These features are provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland. The use of Google Analytics’ remarketing features may result in the transmission of personal data to the servers of Google LLC. in the USA. Google LLC. has concluded standard contractual clauses, as published by the European Commission, with us for the transmission of personal data to Google LLC. based in the USA. These standard contractual clauses can be viewed here: https://privacy.google.com/businesses/processorterms/.

This function makes it possible to link the advertising target groups created using Google Analytics remarketing with the cross-device features from Google AdWords and Google DoubleClick. In doing so, interest-based, personalized advertising messages created based on your earlier browsing behavior on one device (e.g., smartphone) can also be displayed on another one of your devices (e.g., tablet or PC).

If you have already given your consent to Google, Google links your website and app browser histories with your Google account for this purpose. This makes it possible to display the same personalized advertising messages on every device on which you are signed on with your Google account.

In order to facilitate this feature, Google Analytics tracks the Google-authenticated IDs of users, which are temporarily linked to our Google Analytics data in order to define and create target groups for universal advertising on all devices.

You can permanently refuse universal remarketing/targeting on all devices by disabling personalized advertising in your Google account; click on the following link to do so: https://www.google.com/settings/ads/onweb/.

All data collected is only compiled in your Google account with your consent, which you can provide to or revoke from Google (Art. 6 (1a) EU GDPR). Any data collection activities that are not compiled in your Google account (e.g., because you do not have a Google account or have objected to the collection) are based on Art. 6 (1f) EU GDPR. Legitimate interest is based on the website operator’s interest in conducting an anonymous analysis of the website’s visitors for advertising purposes.

Google reCAPTCHA

We use "Google reCAPTCHA" (hereinafter "reCAPTCHA") on our website. These features are provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland. The use of reCAPTCHA may result in the transmission of personal data to the servers of Google LLC. in the USA. Google LLC. has concluded standard contractual clauses, as published by the European Commission, with us for the transmission of personal data to Google LLC. based in the USA. These standard contractual clauses can be viewed here: https://privacy.google.com/businesses/processorterms/.

reCAPTCHA is used to check whether the data entered on our website (e.g. on a contact form) has been entered by a human or by an automated program. To do this, reCAPTCHA analyses the behavior of the website visitor based on various characteristics. This analysis starts automatically as soon as the visitor enters the website. For this analysis, reCAPTCHA evaluates various types of information (e.g. IP address, how long the visitor has been on the website, or mouse movements made by the user). All data collected during this analysis is transmitted to Google.

Facebook Pixel

Our website uses Facebook’s (Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA, hereinafter “Facebook”) user action pixel to measure conversions, .

This pixel makes it possible to track the behavior of visitors to a particular provider’s website after they have been forwarded to that website by clicking on a Facebook advertisement. By doing so, it is possible to evaluate the effectiveness of Facebook advertisements for statistical purposes and market research and to optimize future advertising campaigns.

The collected data remain anonymous for us as the operator of the website; we are not able to determine the identity of the users. However, Facebook stores and processes the data, linking the information to the corresponding user profile so that Facebook can use the data for its own advertising purposes, in accordance with Facebook’s data use policy. This allows Facebook to turn on advertisements both on Facebook pages and outside of Facebook. We as the website operator cannot influence the use of this data.

Please refer to Facebook’s data privacy notice for further information on protecting your personal privacy: https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/.

Furthermore, you can disable the “Custom Audiences” remarketing function in the “Ad Settings” section under https://www.facebook.com/ads/preferences/?entry_product=ad_settings_screen. You have to be logged into Facebook in order to do this.

If you do not have a Facebook account, you can disable Facebook’s user-based advertising on the website from the European Interactive Digital Advertising Alliance: http://www.youronlinechoices.com/uk/your-ad-choices.

Thanks to the statistics obtained, we can improve our offering, making it more interesting for you, our customer. LinkedIn Conversion Tracking is used on the basis of your consent in compliance with Article 6 (1a) EU GDPR. You can withdraw your consent to the use of LinkedIn Conversion Tracking at any time by changing your settings here.

The LinkedIn Insight Tag makes it possible to track the behavior of visitors to a particular provider’s website after they have been forwarded to that website by clicking on a LinkedIn advertisement.

However, LinkedIn stores and processes the data, linking the information to the corresponding user profile so that LinkedIn can use the data for its own advertising purposes in accordance with LinkedIn’s data use policy. This allows LinkedIn to place advertisements both on LinkedIn pages and outside of LinkedIn. We as the website operator cannot influence the use of this data.
