of erasure (Art. 17 EU GDPR),

of rectification (Art. 16 EU GDPR),

4. Rights of objection 

 

Please note the following in relation to rights of objection:

If we are processing your personal data for direct marketing purposes, you have the right to object to such processing at any time without providing reasons therefor. The same applies for measures to improve the offered products and services or the shopping experience, to the extent that it is related to direct marketing.

If you object to the processing for the purpose of direct marketing or for the purpose of improving our offerings, we will no longer process your personal data for these purposes. The objection must be submitted to our above-mentioned contact details; it is not subject to formal requirements.

Where we process your data for the purpose of legitimate interests, you also have the right to object at any time to such processing on grounds relating to your particular situation; this also applies for the creation of a user ProfileThis relates to the inner width of air lines and air hoses. The longer the airline the larger the inner diameter has to be dimensioned, in order to minimize the pressure loss and to ensure sufficient air volume..X» based on these provisions.

If you file an objection, we will no longer process your personal data unless we are able to demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing. This may be the case if the processing serves for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims or if it serves other legitimate purposes which override your interests, rights and freedoms.


5. Purposes and legal basis of the data processing

 

The processing of your personal data is in compliance with the provisions of the EU GDPR and all other applicable data protection provisions. The legal basis of the data processing derives in particular from Article 6 EU GDPR.

We will use your data for the purposes of initiating business, to fulfil contractual and legal obligations, to carry out the contract, to offer products and services, to process queries and (if applicable) to process orders/contracts, for administrative purposes and to strengthen the relationship with the customer, for staff and customer satisfaction surveys (which may also include analyses for marketing purposes and direct marketing with product and price information) and in the context of our application portal. If necessary, you will be asked for your consent. Your data will also be used for further purposes which are specifically stated in a consent, for example, for information on newsletter offers, etc.

Your consent constitutes a permission subject to data protection law. In this context, we will inform you about the purposes of the data processing and your right to object. Should the consent also cover the processing of special categories of personal data, we will explicitly advise you of this in Article 88 para. 1 EU GDPR regarding consent.

Processing of special categories of personal data within the meaning of Article 9 para. 1 EU GDPR will only be carried out if it is required by law and there is no reason to assume that you have an overriding legitimate interest in your data being excluded from processing, Article 88 para. 1 EU GDPR.

 

6. Disclosure to third parties / purposes and extent

 

We will disclose your data to third parties only where permitted by law, to meet our contractual obligations or on the basis of a corresponding consent. In this context, we will only disclose your data (e.g. name and address) which we require to meet our statutory, legal or contractual obligations or which third parties require to ensure smooth functioning, in particular to implement a concluded contract. 

No other disclosure will be made to third parties, unless we are required to make such disclosure due to compelling legal acts or provisions (disclosure to external bodies such as regulatory authorities or law enforcement authorities).

 

7. Recipients of data/categories of recipients

 

We will ensure within our company that only persons who require your data to carry out their job responsibilities or meet the contractual and statutory obligations receive your data. This also applies for any exchange of data with our affiliated companies (e.g. UK or Canada), or for the disclosure (to our international distribution partners) of address data of customers who have given their consent to be contacted or to receive, for example, our newsletter, or which have provided their address data in the context of the implementation of the contract.

In many cases, the work of our specialist departments is supported by service providers. The necessary contractual arrangements have been put in place with all service providers, for example in the form of a data processor agreement. 

 

8. Transfer of data to third countries and intent to transfer to third countries

 

Data will only be transferred to third countries (outside of the European Union or the European Economic Area) if this is necessary for carrying out the contract, required by law or if you have given your consent. The scope of the transferred information is described under no. 6.

A sufficient level of protection is, provided that the state does not ensure a level of data protection that is accepted by the EU, ensured by EU standard contractual clauses.

 

9. Data storage period

 

We will store your data for as long as the specific purpose of processing requires. Please note that various retention periods require the continued storage of data. This concerns in particular record retention requirements under commercial and tax law (e.g. German Commercial Code, German Tax Code, etc.). If no further retention requirements apply, the data will be routinely erased once the purpose has been achieved.

In addition, we may retain data if you have granted your consent or if legal disputes arise and we use evidence subject to statutory limitation periods.

 

10. Transferring your data

 

We use appropriate technical and organisational security measures to protect our stored data optimally against accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction, and access by unauthorised persons. The security levels are reviewed on an ongoing basis in cooperation with security experts and adapted to new security standards.

The exchange of data with our website is encrypted (in both directions). Our website offers SSL as communication protocol, using the most up-to-date encryption protocols. For applications via our applicant portal, we offer content encryption. Only we are able to decrypt these data. Alternative communication channels are also available (for example by post).

Requirements to make data available

 

Various personal data are necessary for the conclusion, implementation and termination of the contract as well as for the fulfilment of the contractual and statutory requirements related thereto. The same applies for the use of our website and the various functions provided by it.

We have summarised details under para. 11. In certain cases, the law requires us to collect and/or provide data. Please note, that processing your request or carrying out the underlying contractual relationship is not possible without the provision of these data. If you therefore refuse the consent to the use of your data (or if you limit your consent) for reason of extreme caution, you may not be able to take advantage of our products and/or services, or only to a limited degree. By continuing to use our products/services or parts thereof, you accept any potential disadvantages arising therefrom.

Categories, sources and origin of the data

 

Which data we process depends on the context of the relevant case. The content and scope of the data differs, for example, if you place an order online, if you enter a query into our contact form, if you submit an application or a complaint.

Please note that we may provide information on data protection in specific data processing situations separately at an appropriate place, for example, when application documents are uploaded or a contact request is submitted.

 

11. Offered services and data requests:

General information on requesting and using data / the principle of data minimisation

We collect the data specified below for certain services, such as website visits, SAL checks, user logins (e.g. for premium warranty and forum), contact requests, registration on the website of our company e.g. at MySATA, user self-service, password changes, newsletter registration, registration for the virtual painter, registration for photobox, SATA loyalty programme, order transactions, registration for prize competitions, registration for meetings, registration for seminars and courses, ordering brochures and ordering from the marketing catalogue. These data are used for establishing contact, for responding to your questions and wishes, to facilitate your visit on our website, to adapt your data, as a requirement for participating in SATA activities, for processing the order, for participating in customer loyalty programs and for supporting the sales activities of our customers and partners. We will not disclose these data without your consent, except in the specific situations described above.

In this context, the principle of data minimisation and data avoidance is observed as you will only be asked to provide data we absolutely need to process your request or to provide the relevant service. In most cases, your IP address will also be processed. This is required for technical reasons and to establish legal security. All fields not marked with an (*) asterisk are not compulsory. Filling them in is optional and may be done for example to enable more individualised answers to your questions. Some services also require additional consent for more extensive processing of your personal data. You will be asked to provide the consent and informed of the respective purpose. Without this consent, no additional processing of your personal data will take place.

If you contact us via email, we will process all personal data contained in the email exclusively for the purpose of processing your inquiry. If you do not use the provided contact forms, no additional data will be collected.

Please note: The password you choose is stored as encrypted. Our employees are not able to read this password and can therefore not provide you with any information should you forget your password.

In this case, you should use the “forgot your password” function to receive an email with an automatically generated new password. Our employees will never ask you for your password either on the phone or in writing. You should therefore never give your password if you receive such requests.

Once the registration is concluded, we store your data for your use of the protected customer section. As soon as you login to our website with your email as the login name and your password, these data you provided will be made available on our website or are available for retrieval.

You can of course cancel all services for which you have registered at any time using the relevant function of the service or by sending an email to unsubscribe@sata.com, revoking your consent and giving a specific description of the service you want to cancel.

The SATA Loyalty Programme (“Programme”) is a loyalty-based customer retention programme. SATA GmbH & Co. KG (“SATA”) operates the programme and the SATA Loyalty App (“App”). The implementation of the programme is first of all governed by the conditions for participation (Allgemeine Teilnahmebedingungen) as amended from time to time. These conditions are supplemented by the following data protection provisions, which apply for natural persons participating in the programme (“participants”) and regulate the handling of personal and other data of the participants (“participant data”) on occasion of and in the context of the programme, setting out in particular specifically when and which participant data are collected, used and processed, to which purposes, as well as the rights of the participants relating to the respective data-related activities.

Collection and processing of participant data by SATA 

 

Registration and usage data

 

When creating a user account, SATA will collect name, date of birth, mobile and landline number, email address and address of the participant as well as the name and the address of the company for which the participant acts with regard to the collection of reward points and for redeeming rewards (“registration data”). SATA uses the registration data to implement and process the programme, in particular for the management of “coins” and for sending out rewards. 

In addition to the registration data, SATA automatically collects further participant data via the App in connection with the use of the App; the participant is not separately notified of this collection and does not have to actively cooperate in this collection. This data collection includes the date and time of the last logins and changes to the App user account, as well as the IP address, manufacturer and model name of the user device used in the most recent login (“usage data”). SATA uses the usage data to enable and improve the use of the App and to ensure the security and stability of its IT systems. The IP address of the user device executing the App is analysed in the event of attacks on or the misuse of SATA’s IT systems as well as for statistical purposes. The usage data are automatically erased after the expiration of a maximum storage period of 6 months after the collection of the relevant data.

Subject to the prior consent of the participant, the registration and usage data will also be used and processed to determine so-called “booster periods” and for determining prizes and establishing contact in the context of “Treasure Hunt“ prize competitions. During promotional periods defined by SATA, “point boosters” apply where the scan of one coin returns a multiple of the usual points; “Treasure Hunt” prize competitions offer the opportunity of winning instant prizes.

 

Bonus data and data analysis for improving products

 

Participants may voluntarily provide additional participant data in the App; this may be done in return for a certain number of coins which are credited to the participant. The data concern the use of SATA products by the participants and/or their companies (for example the job of the participants, type, scope and purpose of their use of SATA products – hereinafter collectively referred to as “bonus data”. 

Subject to the prior consent of the participant, SATA will analyse registration, usage and bonus data in order to better understand the use of SATA products by the participants and their companies and in order to improve SATA products and the loyalty programme.

13. Cookies

 

Our Internet websites use so-called cookies in several areas. They serve to make our website more user-friendly, more effective and more secure. Cookies are small text files which are stored on your computer and which are saved by your browser (locally on your hard drive).

These cookies allow us to analyse how users interact with our website. This enables us to design the content of our website in accordance with the requirements of our users. Cookies also allow us to measure the effectiveness of displayed content and for example choose its location depending on thematic user interests.

Most of the cookies we use are so-called "session cookies”, which are automatically deleted after your visit. Permanent cookies are deleted automatically from your computer after their period of validity expires (usually six months). You can also delete them manually at any time.

Most web browsers will accept cookies automatically. However, you will usually be able to change the settings of your browser if you prefer not to provide such information.
