Privacy Policy of Unger Germany GmbH

We thank you for your interest in our website. The protection of your privacy is very important for us. Hereinafter, we provide you with a detailed description of what happens to your data.
Data protection is a matter of trust, and your trust matters to us. Therefore, when processing your personal data, we strictly comply with the legal regulations.
With this Privacy Policy, we inform you to what extent personal data, as well as other information is collected, stored, processed, and evaluated by us. In addition, the handling is explained here.

Data collection procedures performed with your order

You can visit our website without being obliged to provide information on your person. We will store – even if you are visiting our website via newsletter links – only anonymous access data (these do not allow for the identification of your person), such as:
- the name of your Internet service provider
- the website from which you are visiting us
- the name of the file requested

These data will be evaluated exclusively for improving our offer and do not allow for the identification of your person.

We collect, store, and process your data for the processing of your order and any possible later warranty cases as well as for advertising purposes. Personal data are collected if you transmit them to us voluntarily when ordering goods, opening your customer account or subscribing to our newsletter.

We will forward your personal data only to the service providers used by us in connection with the processing of the order (carriers, logistics specialists, banks).

You are entitled to request information on your personal data stored by us. Should your data be incorrect, incomplete or irrelevant, we will correct or delete them on request. You are entitled to obtain a written summary of your personal data stored in our documentation. You can request this document in writing with Unger Germany GmbH. Furthermore, you are entitled at any time to revoke your consent to use your data for advertising purposes (e.g. for the mailing of catalogues, newsletters, or offers). To this end, please contact Unger Germany GmbH, Marketing, Piepersberg 44, 42653 Solingen, Deutschland by postal mail or write an e-mail to: mailing@unger-europe.com .

Of course, all personal data is generally treated as strictly confidential, and your legitimate interests are strictly taken into consideration in accordance with the legal provisions.

Your order will be internally stored with us. It includes for instance your name, surname, billing address, mailing address, telephone number, bank account details and e-mail address. This information required for our business relationship will be stored and – within the context of processing your order – disclosed to our affiliated companies, if any, or service partners which become active for us as processors pursuant to the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG).

E-mail advertising, newsletter and market research

If you have subscribed to our newsletter in a separate way or using other registration forms, your e-mail address will be used for our own advertising purposes, market research, need-based design and individual marketing of products and services until you unsubscribe from the newsletter via email or in writing addressed to Unger Germany GmbH, Marketing, Piepersberg 44, 42653 Solingen, Deutschland.

Use of cookies

We use so-called cookies on our website. Cookies are small text files stored on your disk, which store the specific settings and data exchange with our system via your browser. Storing these settings helps us to design the website accordingly for you and makes use easier for you by storing, for instance, certain entries from you in such a way that you do not need to have to repeat them again and again. Your browser allows for restrictive settings for the use of cookies; this can, however, lead to you no longer and / or unrestrictedly being able to use our offer. Cookies can also be deleted there.

Session cookies

Session cookies are deleted after closing your browser.

Long-term cookies

We use cookies which remain on your hard disk. For your convenience, the expiration date is set on a date in the future. When you return to our website, it is automatically recognised that you have already visited us and which are your preferred entries and settings (so-called long-term cookies).

Data security

We secure our website and any other system by technical and organisational measures against loss, destruction, access, change and processing of your data by unauthorised persons. You should always treat your access data as strictly confidential and close the browser window when you have finished your communication with us, in particular if you share your computer with others.

We will never disclose, sell or exchange your data for advertising purposes to third parties outside Unger Germany GmbH. The transmission of data to third parties, e.g. in connection with the shipping process to suppliers, is for the only purpose of enabling us to fulfil our obligations to you.

How do we protect your data?

We have technical and organisational measures in place which protect your data against loss, manipulation or unauthorised access by third parties. We regularly align our security measures with the technical development. For security reasons we encrypt your data using the SSL procedure (Secure-Socket-Layer).

Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, text files stored on your computer enabling an analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is normally transmitted to a Google server in the U.S. and stored there. If anonymisation of the IP address has been activated on this website, your IP address will be cut by Google in advance within member states of the European Union or in other States party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.

The IP address transmitted from your browser using Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data. You can change the settings of your browser software to prevent the storage of cookies; however, we make you aware that in this case you will not be able to use all functionalities of this website.

Creation of pseudonymous usage profiles for web analysis

On this website, data are collected and stored for the purpose of creating anonymous, non-personal usage profiles. These usage profiles are used to analyse the visitor behaviour and are evaluated to improve our offer and adapt it to the specific needs of our users. For this purpose, cookies may be used. Cookies are small text files stored on the computer of the website visitor and enabling their recognition when visiting our website again. Without a separate and express consent of the user the anonymised usage profiles will not be merged with the personal data of the carrier of the pseudonym. You can at any time object to the collection and storage of data for web analysis purposes with effect for the future by contacting us using the account data below.

Use of Facebook social plugins

This website uses so-called social plugins (“plugins”) of the social network Facebook operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”). The plugins are marked with a Facebook logo or the addition “Social Plugin of Facebook” and / or “Facebook Social Plugin”. An overview of the Facebook plugins and their appearance can be found here: http://developers.facebook.com/plugins

If you open a page of our website containing such a plugin, your browser will establish a direct connection with the Facebook servers. The content of the plugin will be directly transmitted by Facebook to your browser and embedded by the latter in the website. Through the plugin integration Facebook receives the information that your browser has connected to the corresponding page of our website, even if you have no Facebook account at all or are currently not logged in on Facebook. This information (including your IP address) is transmitted from your browser directly to a Facebook server in the U.S. and stored there. If you are logged in on Facebook, Facebook will be able to directly allocate the visit to our website to your Facebook account. If you interact with the plugins, e.g. press the “I like” button or post a comment, the respective information will also be directly transmitted to a Facebook server and stored there. In addition, the information will be published on Facebook and displayed to your Facebook friends. Facebook is entitled to use this information for the purposes of advertising, market research and need-based design of the Facebook website. To this end, Facebook will create usage, interest and relation profiles, e.g. to analyse your use of our website with regard to advertisements displayed to you on Facebook, to inform other Facebook users on your activities on our website and to render further services connected with the use of Facebook. If you do not want Facebook to allocate the data collected via our website, you must log out from Facebook before visiting our website. Purpose and extent of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Facebook, as well as your related rights and configuration options to protect your privacy can be found in Facebook’s privacy notice: https://www.facebook.com/policy.php
