3.1.1 Description of data processing and storage
Every time our website is accessed, our system automatically collects data and information from the computer system of the requesting user.
The following data is collected in the process:
The country from which the user accesses our website is determined on the basis of the IP address recorded. This serves to display the corresponding country and language version of the website (German/English). For this purpose, the IP address is truncated to the first 6 digits and analysed using a Geo IP database; the country through which the user accesses the website is thus determined. A country code is assigned to this country, which is then stored in the log files instead of the IP address.
The other data listed above is deleted from the log files of the system after 7 days, unless further processing is necessary to protect our legitimate interests in exceptional cases (e.g. to arrange for the blocking of IT addresses, filing of a criminal complaint). The data is then deleted as soon as it is no longer necessary to achieve the purpose for which it was collected.
Storage and/or compilation of this data with other personal data of the user does not take place.
3.1.2 Purpose and legal basis of data processing
The data specified in a) is collected
3.1.3 Facebook competitions
Description of data processing, storage
When you participate in a Facebook competition organised by us, you will comment on our Facebook post and thus submit your declaration to participate in the competition, we log your Facebook username, the relevant post with your comment and the time of receipt of the declaration to participate (i.e. your comment on the post). We process this data to ensure you satisfy the eligibility conditions to participate in the draw and to contact you should you win a prize. If you win a prize, we record the time of sending the notification and the content of the message. We use this information to ensure you submit your postal address to receive the prize within the specified period of 7 days. We also collect and store your IP address.
The personal data of the winners will be stored for a period of 10 years in accordance with commercial and fiscal law. Once the statutory limitation period after the end of the competition has expired, the winners’ data will be restricted for further processing and used exclusively for the purposes of defending potential legal claims. The logged IP address will be deleted no later than after a period of 7 days. The data of competition entrants who have not won a prize will be restricted for further processing and used exclusively for the purposes of defending potential legal claims. This information will be deleted once the statutory limitation period has expired.
The purpose and legal basis for data processing
We store IP addresses to enable us to investigate the potential misuse of your personal data. The legal basis for processing this data is Art. 6 para 1 letter f GDPR. The opportunity to investigate the misuse of data is in our legitimate interest. Additional processing of personal information shall be carried out to manage the competition. The legal basis for this is Art. 6 para 1 letter b GDPR.
The data will be used exclusively for the purposes of the competition. Access to such data is only authorised for persons in the company who are assigned to manage the competition.
If you are a winner and communicate your postal address via email to enable us to send the prize, we will use our internal web server and IT system to process such information.
Facebook will also process data arising from comments entered on the Facebook post that are required to participate in the competition. Please visit Facebook for information on the relevant data processing procedures: www.facebook.com/help/568137493302217
When sending the prize by post, the recipient’s address will be made available to the post/parcel service provider. In this context, the data will not be disclosed to third parties.
You can object to the temporary storage of the IP address at any time. Section 4 also applies.
3.1.4 Disclosure/recipient of the data
The collected data is stored on our server.
The data collected in accordance with a) is not passed on to third parties unless this is necessary in the case of attacks on our IT (see b) above), for example, in the context of reporting a criminal offence to the prosecuting authorities.
3.1.5 Right of objection
The temporary acquisition of the user's IP address is essential for the provision of the website and the storage of data in log files for the operation of the website. Consequently, the user does not have the right to object. In all other respects, the user has the right to object to the processing at any time for reasons arising from his/her particular situation; see further information in section D.
3.2.1 Description of data processing and storage
You can write to us at the e-mail address provided in the “Contact us” section. In this case, the personal data transmitted by e-mail is processed by us. The data is used to answer your request. If you provide us with your name and postal address, we process this data in accordance with section C 3 (postal advertising).
The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer necessary to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. If the request relates to a contract that has been concluded or is under negotiation, the contents and times of communication are stored until any claims arising from these have lapsed.
In other cases, the personal data from your e-mail request is restricted for further processing and only used to defend against any legal claims that may arise once the respective conversation with you has ended. The conversation is terminated when it can be inferred from the circumstances that the facts in question have been clarified in full. After the expiry of the limitation period, the data is deleted.

The truncated IP address and the time the registration confirmation is sent is stored for the purpose of verifaying your registration and, if necessary, clarifying any possible misuse of your data. The legal basis for the processing of this data is Article 6(1)(f) of GDPR.
3.4.3 Disclosure/recipient of the data
For the execution of the credit check, we disclose your company name and address to the credit agency named under a). The information on data processing pursuant to Article 14 of GDPR, which is provided by the credit agency, can be found at www.creditreform-koblenz.de. The data is not disclosed in any other respect.

To place an order via our Webshop, you must first log into your customer account. The data you provided when registering and creating the account is then used automatically to complete the order details. You can enter a new delivery address and select the preferred shipping method (standard/express shipping). The new delivery address is then saved to your customer account. You then have the option to confirm you would like to order the items or make any necessary changes. These procedures are free of obligation. By clicking on the "pay order” button, the order is sent to BOMAG and concludes a binding purchase contract. We immediately confirm receipt of your order electronically and store the order in your customer account. We also record and store the date and time your order is received.
We inform you electronically with regard to the acceptance or rejection of the order.You have the option to track the dispatch status and progress of your items via your customer account.
For commercial and tax regulation related reasons, we are obliged to store your address, payment, and order data for a period of 10 years. After the regular limitation period following the conclusion of the sales contract expires, your data will be restricted for further processing and only used to defend against any legal claims that may arise, and for compliance with legal obligations. This does not apply to data collected in accordance with C 3 (postal advertising) and data stored in the customer account. You may delete this in the customer area; see the following information on the customer account in C 6.
If we do not accept your order, the data is deleted within 3 months.
3.5.3 Purpose and legal basis of data processing
The purpose of storing the dispatch time is to verify your order and, if necessary, to clarify any possible misuse of your personal data.

This data is deleted if more than 2 years elapse since the last login. In all other respects, the data can be removed by deleting the customer account. Logging into the customer account is required for this. Deleting the account does not delete the data stored in our application system for concluded purchase contracts.

3.6.2 Purpose and legal basis of data processing
Creating and saving a customer account allows orders to be placed quickly and simply, as the ordering party’s data does not need to be re-entered.
