When you use this website various personal data are collected. Personal data are data with which you can be personally identified. This privacy policy explains which data we collect and what we use them for. It also explains how and for which purpose this takes place.

We would like to point out that transmission of data via the internet (e.g. during communication by email) may be associated with security vulnerabilities. It is not possible to protect data fully against unauthorised access by third parties.

The responsible party for data processing (data controller) on this website is:

Arnold Zentralverwaltungsgesellschaft mbH
Alfred-Klingele-Straße 15
73630 Remshalden, Germany

Phone: +49 (0)7151 7096-0
Email: datenschutz@arnold-glas.de

The responsible party is the natural or juridical person who alone or with others decides about the purposes and means of processing of personal data (e.g. names, email addresses or similar).

Withdrawal of your consent to data processing

Many data processing operations are only possible with your explicit consent. You can withdraw your granted consent at any time. To do so just send a formless message to us by email. The lawfulness of any data processing that has already occurred up to the time of withdrawal remains unaffected by the withdrawal.

Right to object to data collection in special cases as well as to direct advertising (Article 21 of the GDPR)

If data processing takes place on the basis of Article 6(1)(e) or 6(1)(f) of the GDPR you have the right to object to processing of your personal data at any time for reasons arising from your particular situation; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions. The respective legal basis for processing can be found in this privacy policy. If you object, we will no longer process your personal data unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for processing that override your interests, rights and freedoms or the processing serves towards establishing, exercising or defending of legal claims (objection in accordance with Art. 21(1) of the GDPR).

If your personal data are processed for direct advertising you have the right to object to the processing of personal data concerning you for the purpose of such advertising; this also applies to profiling if it is connected to direct advertising. If you object, your personal data will then no longer be used for the purpose of direct advertising (objection in accordance with Art. 21(2) of the GDPR).

Right to lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority

In the event of violation of the GDPR, the data subject has the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of his/her habitual residence, workplace or place in which the alleged violation occurred. The right to lodge a complaint exists without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedies.

Right to data portability

You have the right to have data which we process in an automated manner on the basis of your consent or for performance of a contract handed out to you or a third party in a standard machine-readable format. If you demand direct transmission of the data to another responsible party, this will only occur as far as is technically possible.

SSL or TLS encryption

This site uses SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and for protection during transmission of confidential content such as orders or enquiries you send to us as site operators. You can recognise an encrypted connection by the switch from ‘http://’ to ‘https://’ in the address bar of the browser and by the padlock icon in your browser status bar.

If SSL or TLS encryption is active the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.

Access, blocking, erasure and rectification

Within the scope of the applicable legal provisions you have at all times the right to receive free information about the personal data saved about you, the origin and recipient of these data and the purpose for data processing and if necessary a right to rectification, blocking or erasure of these data. You can contact us at any time at the address given in the legal information section if you have any questions regarding this or the topic of personal data.

Right to restriction of processing

You have the right to demand the restriction of processing of your personal data. For this purpose you can contact us at any time at the address given in the legal information section. The right to restriction of processing exists in the following cases:

  • If you question the accuracy of the personal data saved by us we normally require time to verify this. You have the right to demand the restriction of processing of your personal data for the duration of the examination.
  • If processing of your personal data took place or is taking place unlawfully you can demand the restriction of data processing rather than erasure.
  • If we no longer need the data, but you require them for exercising, defence or assertion of legal claims, you have the right to demand the restriction of processing, rather than erasure, of your personal data.
  • If you have filed an objection in accordance with Art. 21(1) of the GDPR your interests must be weighed against our interests. As long as it is not yet clear whose interests are overriding, you have the right to demand the restriction of processing of your personal data.

If you have restricted the processing of your personal data, these data may – apart from being saved – only be processed with your consent or for the assertion, exercising or defence of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or juridical person or for reasons of an important public interest of the European Union or a Member State.

Cookies

The web pages use so-called cookies in part. Cookies do not harm your computer and do not contain any viruses. Cookies serve to make our offering more user-friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer and saved by your browser.

Most of the cookies we use are ‘session cookies’. These cookies are automatically deleted after your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your device until you delete them. These cookies allow us to recognise your browser the next time you visit.

You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and allow cookies only in individual cases, refuse cookies in specific cases or in general or activate automatic deletion of cookies when you close the browser. If you disable cookies, you may not be able to use all of the features of our website.

Cookies needed for carrying out the electronic communication process or for providing certain functions desired by you (e.g. shopping basket function) are saved on the basis of Art. 6(1)(f) of the GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in saving cookies for technically error-free and optimised provision of services. Any other cookies (e.g. cookies for analysis of your surfing behaviour) that are saved are treated separately in this privacy policy.

Server log files

The provider of the pages automatically collects and saves information in so-called server log files which your browser automatically transmits to us. These data are:

  • browser type and version
  • operating system used
  • referrer URL
  • hostname of accessing computer (client computer name)
  • time of server request
  • IP address.

These data are not combined with data from other sources.

Collection of these data takes place on the basis of Art. 6(1)(f) of the GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in technically error-free display and optimisation of the website – the server log files must be obtained for this purpose.

Contact form

If you send us enquiries using the contact form, your information from this contact form including the contact data provided by you there is saved by us for the purpose of processing of the enquiry and for the case that we have follow-up questions. We do not pass on these data without your consent.

Processing of the data entered in the contact form hence takes place solely on the basis of your consent (Art. 6(1)(a) of the GDPR). You can withdraw this consent at any time. To do so just send a formless message to us by email. The lawfulness of any data processing that has already occurred up to the time of withdrawal remains unaffected by the withdrawal.

The data entered in the contact form by you remain with us until you ask us to delete them, you withdraw your consent to storage or the purpose for saving the data becomes invalid (e.g. after your enquiry has been processed). Mandatory legal provisions – in particular pertaining to retention periods – remain unaffected.
