Protección de datos

Update: 28.02.2012


The Horn & Bauer Group welcomes your visit to our Web site and the interest you have shown in our company, our products and services. The protection of your personal data during processing throughout the entire business process is an important concern of ours and we would like you to feel safe when you visit our Internet pages.
Below, we will explain which information is collected by the Horn & Bauer Group during your visit to our Web pages and how it is used.

Personal data

Personal data are particulars about the personal or material circumstances of an identified or an identifiable natural person. They include information such as your correct name, your address, your telephone number and your date of birth. Information which is not directly linked with your real identity – e.g. favourite Web pages or the number of users per page – is not personal data.

Collection, recording and processing of personal data

When you visit our Web pages our Web servers temporarily save the call data of the inquiring computer, the Web pages of ours that you visit, the date and duration of your visit, the identification data of the type of browser and operating system used as well as the Web page that you are visiting us from as a standard measure to ensure system security. Any further personal data such as your name, your address, telephone number or e-mail address are not collected unless these particulars are provided by you voluntarily, e.g. in the course of registration, a survey, to implement a contract or if you make an inquiry (contact form).

Use and disclosure of personal data

The personal data you provide is used for the following purposes:

  1. the technical administration of Web pages

  2. to meet your requests and requirements, e.g. to implement a contract entered into with you, to respond to your inquiry, etc.

  3. for use for product-related surveys and marketing purposes
    Note: You can object to use for product-related surveys and marketing purposes in writing.

Your personal data is not disclosed, sold or transmitted in any other manner to third parties unless this is necessary to implement the contract or you have expressly given your consent to this. Hence, it may be necessary that we notify our suppliers of your address and purchase order data or that we enter them into our inventory control system when you order goods.

  2. on password-protected Web pages
    The cookies used in this case do not save personal data, they only save information on your browser.
