3. Scope of processing of personal data; purpose of processing

3.1. Accessing our website and creating log files

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:

  • User’s IP address
  • Notification as to whether retrieval was successful
     

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

  • to enable the website to be delivered to the user’s computer. The legal basis for this is set out in Article 6(1)(f) of EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The temporary registration of the IP address to display the pages accessed by the user is technically necessary for this and represents a legitimate interest on the provider´s part in terms of Article 6(1)(1)(f) of GDPR, which is not opposed by any overriding interests of the user.
     
  • to ensure the security of our web server and trouble-free operation of our website including the Webshop system, e.g. recording failed login attempts, monitoring to avoid or detect hacker attacks; these purposes represent a legitimate interest on the provider´s part in terms of Article 6(1)(1)(f) of GDPR, which is not opposed by any overriding interests of the user.



3.1.3 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.

3.1.4 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 Contact by e-mail by the user


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.

3.2.2 Purpose & legal basis of data processing

Your e-mail address and any other data you provide is stored to respond to your enquiry.  The legal basis for this is set out in Article 6(1)(f) of GDPR. If the aim of contact is to conclude a contract, the additional legal basis for processing is Article 6(1)(b) of GDPR.

3.2.3 Disclosure

In this context, the data is not passed onto third parties but used exclusively for processing and answering the contact request. We use our own web server and IT system to transmit the contact request and its processing.

3.2.4 Right of objection and deletion

You may object to the use of your personal data at any time. In this case, the conversation cannot be continued. Section D then also applies.

3.3 Postal advertising

3.3.1 Description of data processing, storage, purpose and disclosure

If you provide us with your name and postal address, we store them for possible future postal advertising (letters) of our products. If necessary, the data may be made available to an external service provider during franking and dispatch. This provider acts in accordance with our instructions and on our behalf and is based in the European Union. Data is not otherwise disclosed to a third party. The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer required to achieve the purpose for which it was collected or if you have objected to its processing.

3.3.2 Legal basis of data processing; right of objection

The legal basis for the data processing defined in a) is Article 6(1)(f) of GDPR. Sending you product information by post is a legitimate interest of our company. You may object to this use of your personal data at any time. In this case, we will cease to send you postal advertising. Section D then also applies.

3.4 Registration for the BOMAG Parts Webshop
 

3.4.1 Description of data processing and storage

The BOMAG Parts Webshop is aimed solely at business clients and legal entities. Before using the service, it is necessary to register electronically for a customer account via the registration page provided.

  • Contact and phone number
  • A valid e-mail address

If you confirm your registration request, we record and save the date and time of the confirmation.

Upon receipt of confirmation, we check whether the applicant really is a company or a legal entity. Since parts are subsequently supplied from our Webshop before payment, a credit check is conducted for companies. For this purpose, information is obtained from Creditreform Koblenz Dr. Rödl & Brodmerkel KG, Rizzastr. 49, 56068 Koblenz. This requires us to provide your company name and registered business address. We then view and assess the information. A decision is not made automatically.

You subsequently receive the result of the registration verification by e-mail. We also process your company name/the name of your legal entity and your postal address in accordance with item C 3 (postal advertising). If we reject your registration request, the data collected is deleted immediately.

In the event of successful registration, we process the data collected during registration in accordance with C 6 (customer account).

3.4.2 Purpose and legal basis of data processing

The mandatory data supplied in the registration process and any other data you may have provided is stored to check the requirements for registration, conduct the credit check, see a) above, inform you of the decision, and to create the customer account. The legal basis for this is set out in Articles 6(1)(b) and (1)(f) of GDPR.

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. We use our own web server IT system to transmit of the registration request and its processing.

3.4.4 Right of objection

You may object to the continuation of the registration check and the transmission of the data mentioned under c) to the credit agency at any time. In this case, registration is not completed and you will be unable to order via our Webshop.

3.5 Ordering goods or services via BOMAG Parts Webshop
 

3.5.1 Description of data processing

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.

3.5.2 Storage

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. The legal basis for the processing of this data is Article 6(1)(f) of GDPR. Personal data is processed during the verification and execution of the order for the following reasons:

  • To be able to identify you as the ordering party
  • To be able to check acceptance of the order
  • If necessary, to clarify any existing queries relating to the ordered products
  • To be able to deliver the purchased goods
  • For invoicing
  • To process any warranty and other legal claims you may assert against us

3.5.5 Right of objection and deletion

You may object to the storage of the time of order dispatch at any time; see section D.

3.6 Customer account
 

3.6.1 Description of data processing and storage

With a customer account, it is possible to store the data of your company / legal entity for future orders via our Webshop, enabling them to be handled quickly. The data provided when requesting registration, new delivery addresses and all orders, the last login time and the BOMAG machines you select are all stored in this account.

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. In this respect, C 5 shall apply.

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. This also enables BOMAG to ensure effectively that the order originates from a company or legal entity under public law, as we only operate a B2B shop. The legal basis for the processing of this data is Article 6(1)(f) of GDPR.
 

3.6.3 Disclosure/recipient of the data

The data is not passed onto third parties. We use our own web server and IT system to store customer accounts and related processing.
 

3.6.4 Right of objection and deletion

You may object to the storage and processing of the data in your customer account at any time and/or request its deletion or delete it yourself by logging into the customer account. Subsequent orders of spare parts via our Webshop will then no longer be possible.

  • for archiving purposes in the public interest, scientific or historical research purposes or for statistical purposes pursuant to the Article 89(1) of GDPR, insofar as the law referred to under a) is likely to render impossible or seriously impair the attainment of the objectives of such processing, or
  • to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
     

Right to information
We shall notify all recipients to whom personal data relating to you has been disclosed of any correction, deletion or restriction of processing, unless this proves impossible or involves a disproportionate effort. You have the right to be informed about these recipients by us, the controller.

Right to data transferability
You have the right to receive the personal data concerning you that you have provided to us, the controller, in a structured, conventional and machine-readable format. Furthermore, you have the right to transmit this data to another person in charge without hindrance by us, the party responsible to whom the personal data was given, provided that

  • processing is based on consent pursuant to Article 6(1)(a) or Article 9(2)(a) or a contract pursuant to Article 6(1)(b) of GDPR, and
  • processing takes place by means of an automatic procedure.
     

In exercising this right, you also have the right to request that the personal data concerning you be transferred directly by us, the controller, to another responsible party, insofar as this is technically feasible. The freedoms and rights of other persons must not be affected by this.

The right to transferability does not apply to the processing of personal data necessary for the performance of a task in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority conferred on us, the controller.

Right of objection
You have the right to object at any time for reasons arising from your particular situation to the processing of personal data concerning you, which is carried out on the basis of Article 6(1)(e) or (f) of GDPR; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions. As the controller, we will cease to process the personal data concerning you, unless we can provide compelling reasons for its processing worthy of protection, which outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or if the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims. If the personal data concerning you is processed for direct advertising purposes, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of such data for the purpose of advertising; this also applies to profiling insofar as it is associated with such direct advertising. If you object to processing for direct advertising purposes, personal data concerning you will cease to be processed for these purposes. You may exercise your right of objection in connection with the use of information society services, notwithstanding Directive 2002/58/EC, by means of automated procedures using technical specifications.

Right to revoke the data protection declaration of consent
You have the right to revoke your data protection declaration of consent at any time. This does not affect the legality of the processing carried out on the basis of consent until revocation.

Automatic decision in individual cases, including profiling.
You have the right not to be subject to a decision based exclusively on automatic processing, including profiling, which legally affects you or significantly affects you in a similar manner.

This does not apply if the decision is

  • necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between you and us, the controller;
  • admissible under Union or Member State law to which we, the controller, are accountable and which contains appropriate measures to safeguard your rights, freedoms and legitimate interests, or
  • made with your express consent.
     

However, these decisions may not be based on special categories of personal data pursuant to Article 9(1) of GDPR, unless Article 9(2)(a) or (g) shall apply and appropriate measures have been taken to protect your rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests.

If a case under a) or c) exists, we, the controller, shall take appropriate measures to safeguard your rights, freedoms, and legitimate interests, including at least the right to obtain the intervention of a person on our behalf as the controller, to state our own position and challenge the decision.

Right of appeal to a supervisory authority
Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you shall have the right of appeal to a supervisory authority, in particular, in the Member State where you are staying, working or where infringement is suspected, if you are of the opinion that the processing of personal data concerning you breaches the GDPR. The supervisory authority to which the complaint has been lodged shall inform the complainant of the status and results of the complaint, including the possibility of a judicial remedy under GDPR, art. 78.
