Your rights as a data subject

 

We would first like to inform you of your rights as a data subject as defined in Art. 15 - 22 EU GDPR include:

 

  • The right of access (Art. 15 EU GDPR)
  • The right to erasure (Art. 17 EU GDPR)
  • The right to rectification (Art. 16 EU GDPR)
  • The right to data portability (Art. 20 EU GDPR)

To exercise these rights, please contact: privacy@arp.com The same applies if you have questions about data processing in our company. You also have the right to appeal to the data protection supervisory authority.

 

Right to object

 

Please note the following in connection with the right to object:

 

If we process your personal data for the purpose of direct marketing, you have the right to object at any time without giving reasons. This right also applies to profiling as long as it is connected with direct advertising.

 

If you object to the processing of your personal data for direct marketing purposes, we will no longer process it for these purposes. Objection is free of charge and can be made without the need for filling in a form at: privacy@arp.de.

 

In the event that we process your data to safeguard legitimate interests, you can object to such processing at any time for reasons relating to your particular situation; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions.

 

We shall no longer process the personal data unless the we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.

 

Purposes and legal bases for data processing

 

Processing of your personal data complies with the provisions of the EU GDPR and all other applicable data protection regulations. Legal bases for data processing result in particular from Art. 6 EU GDPR.

 

We use your data for business initiation, fulfilment of contractual and legal obligations, execution of a contractual relationship, offering products and services and for strengthening the customer relationship, which may also include analyses for marketing purposes, customer satisfaction surveys and direct marketing.

 

Your consent also constitutes a legal provision under data protection law. The following is information regarding the purposes of data processing and about your right to object. If consent also refers to the processing of special categories of personal data, we will expressly point this out to you in the consent, Art. 88 Para. 1 EU GDPR.

 

Processing of special categories of personal data according to Art. 9 Para. 1 EU GDPR only takes place if this is required by legal regulations and there is no reason to assume that your legitimate interest in the exclusion of the processing prevails, Art. 88 Para. 1 EU GDPR.

 

Transfer of data to third parties

 

We will only pass on your data to third parties within the framework of legal regulations or with appropriate consent. Otherwise, data will not be passed on to third parties unless we are obliged to do so by mandatory legal provisions (transfer to external bodies such as supervisory authorities or law enforcement authorities).

 

Data recipients / categories of recipients

 

Within our company, we ensure that only those persons receive your data who need them to fulfil their contractual and legal obligations. Our company is connected to the Bechtle AG group and other Bechtle subsidiaries in a variety of processes. It is possible that Bechtle-affiliated companies may become involved during contracts of sale and requests. For example, a request for on-site support at your location may be processed by an affiliated company in your area for said purpose.

 

In some cases, service providers support our specialist departments in performing their tasks, e.g. customer satisfaction surveys, credit checks. The necessary data protection agreements have been concluded with all service providers.

 

Transfers of personal data to third countries / data intended for processing after transfer to a third country

 

Data is only transmitted to third countries (outside the European Union or the European Economic Area) if you have given us your consent or if required to do so by law.

 

We transfer your personal data to group companies outside the European Economic Area in Switzerland.

Data protection compliance is guaranteed by binding EU standard contract clauses, corporate data protection regulations, etc.

 

Data retention

 

We will store your data only for as long as it is needed for the purposes it was collected. Please note that numerous retention periods require that data continue to be (must be) stored. This applies in particular to commercial or tax storage obligations (e.g. German Commercial Code, Fiscal Code, etc.). If there are no further storage obligations, the data will be routinely deleted once the purpose has been achieved.

 

In addition, we may retain data if you have given us permission to do so or if legal disputes arise and we use it as evidence within statutory limitation periods of up to thirty years; the regular limitation period is three years.

 

Secure data transfer

 

In order to protect data from accidental or deliberate manipulation, loss, damage or access by an unauthorised person, we have taken appropriate technical and organisational security measures. To this end, the level of security is continually tested and adjusted to reflect new standards in security, in collaboration with security experts.

 

Data transferred to and from our online shop is always encrypted. We offer HTTPS as the transmission protocol for our website, in each case using the current encryption protocols. In addition, we offer our users content encryption for contact forms and applications. Only we are able to decrypt this data. It is also possible to use alternative communication channels (e.g. by post).

 

Obligation to provide data

 

Various personal data are necessary for the establishment, execution and termination of the obligation and the fulfilment of the associated contractual and legal duties. The same applies to the use of our online shop and the various functions it provides.

We mostly use so-called “session cookies”, which are automatically deleted when you leave our site. Permanent cookies are automatically deleted by your computer when the validity period has been reached (usually six months) or you delete them yourself before this period expires.

 

Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies as default. If you don’t want to send this information, you can change your browser settings at any time.

 

Cookies are saved on the user’s computer and transmitted from there to our website. This means that the user has complete control over how the cookies are used. You can deactivate or limit the transmission of cookies by changing the settings in your internet browser. Furthermore, cookies can be deleted at any time in the internet browser or other software programmes.

Please note: If you deactivate cookies, not all functions of our online shop may be fully usable under certain circumstances.

 

User profile / Web tracking / Advertising tools

 

This online shop—in part with the help of third-party service providers—creates anonymous usage profiles for advertising and market research purposes, as well as for target-group oriented web-design.

These usage profiles are anonymised (on the web server), so that only anonymous data (i.e. no personal or personally identifiable data such as your IP address) are sent to the service providers.

 

The above-mentioned personal data will not be merged with the user profiles. That means that your usage profile is not attached to your name, and nobody knows what your usage profile looks like at any given time.

 

Web tracking (i.e. collecting data for these usage profiles) is carried out with usage-profile cookies and scripts.

These cookies enable the web server to recognise you during your browser session and also during your next browser session, provided that the cookie has not been deleted in the meantime.

Links to other providers

 

Our shop contains links to Internet sites of other companies, and these links are clearly recognisable as such. We do not have any influence on the content of these sites and cannot, therefore, be held responsible for them. The respective provider or operator is always responsible for the content on the page.

 

The linked pages were tested for possible legal violations and recognisable infringements at the time at which they were added. No illegal content was detected at the time of creating the links. However, we cannot be expected to continuously check the content of the external websites without specific knowledge of illegal content. Should we be informed of any illegal content on the external sites, we will promptly remove the links.
