As far as personal data (e.g. names, addresses or e-mail addresses) is collected on our pages, this is always done on a voluntary basis, as far as possible. This data will not be passed on to third parties without your express consent.

We would like to point out that data transmission over the Internet (e.g. communication by e-mail) can have security vulnerabilities. Complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.

Legal basis for data processing

Insofar as we obtain your consent for the processing of your personal data, Art. 6 (1) (a) of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis.

When processing personal data that is necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are a party, Art. 6 (1) (b) of the GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures.

Insofar as the processing of personal data is necessary for the fulfilment of a legal obligation to which HEIN, LEHMANN GmbH is subject, Art. 6 (1) (c) of the GDPR serves as the legal basis.

If it is necessary to process personal data in order to safeguard the legitimate interests of HEIN, LEHMANN GmbH, Art. 6 (1) (f) of the GDPR serves as the legal basis.

 

Data erasure / storage duration

Your personal data will be deleted as soon as the purpose for which it was stored no longer applies. Furthermore, data may be stored if this has been provided for by the European or national legislator in EU ordinances, laws or other regulations to which HEIN, LEHMANN GmbH is subject. Data is also deleted when a storage period, prescribed by the aforementioned standards, expires unless there is a need for further storage of the data for the conclusion or performance of a contract.

 

Creation of log files

Every time you access the website pages of HEIN, LEHMANN GmbH, temporary information transmitted by your browser is automatically stored. In the log file created, the browser type/version, operating system used, name and URL of the file accessed, reference URL (the page visited previously), host name of the accessing computer (IP address) as well as the date and time of the server request are recorded. This data is not merged with any other data sources. The storage and processing of this data serves exclusively for system security and the optimisation of the Internet offering. The legal basis for this is Art. 6 (1) (f) of the GDPR.

 

Cookies

We also use so-called cookies for data collection and storage. Cookies are data packages that your browser stores in your terminal device at our instigation. They do not cause any damage. They contain no executable code and therefore no viruses and do not allow us to spy on you. There are two types of cookies: temporary, so-called session cookies and persistent cookies.

Session cookies are automatically deleted when you close your browser. They store a so-called session ID, with which various requests from your browser can be assigned to the common session. This allows your computer to be recognised when you return to our website. The use of session cookies is necessary for us to be able to provide you with the website. The legal basis for the processing of your personal data using session cookies is Art. 6 (1) (f) of the GDPR. You can object to the use of session cookies but please note that without cookies some functions on our website cannot be provided.

Persistent cookies are automatically deleted after a specified period of time, which may vary depending upon the cookie. You can delete cookies in the security settings of your browser at any time. With the help of cookies, we are able to track your usage behaviour and thus improve our service to you. Cookies are also intended to enable you to browse our website more efficiently. Persistent cookies can be differentiated according to whether they are technically necessary or not. If the technical necessity is affirmed in individual cases, they are also based on Art. 6 (1) (f) of the GDPR. The use of technically unnecessary cookies takes place with your consent. The cookies, which are based on your consent, are only set if you have actively given them. The legal basis for data processing is Art. 6 (1) (a) of the GDPR. You may revoke your consent at any time. Revocation of consent does not affect the lawfulness of the processing carried out on the basis of consent until revocation. You can set your Internet browser so that our cookies cannot be stored on your terminal device or that cookies already stored are deleted. If you do not accept cookies, this may lead to restrictions on how our website pages function.

The legal basis for processing your personal data using third-party cookies is Art. 6 (1) (a) of the GDPR. In this case, you may also revoke your consent at any time.

The legal basis for data processing using Matomo cookies is your consent in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a) GDPR. You can withdraw your consent at any time.

Our Presence on Social Networking Sites

HEIN, LEHMANN GmbH maintains publicly accessible professional company profiles on various social networking sites (social media). We use these to publish and disseminate content, offers and product recommendations from our company and help us, for example, to promote direct exchange with our customers and interested persons.

The use of one of these networking sites sets in motion a large number of data processing operations. This data is processed even if you do not have your own profile with this network. When you visit one of our profiles, your personal data is not only processed by us but also by the operator of the respective networking site and stored if necessary. Personal data constitutes, for example, your name, age, e-mail address, photos and other information that you have voluntarily shared in the networking sites, as well as information on your usage behaviour and interactions with the contents of the respective company profile. Under certain circumstances, your IP address may also be collected. There is no obligation on your part to provide us with your personal data in order to visit our company profiles. However, this may be necessary in order to use individual functions of our profiles (such as commenting on articles or contacting us).  

HEIN, LEHMANN GmbH has no influence on the data processing triggered by the operators as a result of your visit to any social networking sites, which may differ between the individual networks and are not necessarily traceable by us (e.g. the setting of cookies). For further information regarding details of the collection and storage of your personal data as well as the purpose, type and scope of processing, we would refer you to the data protection declarations of the respective operators of the social networking sites. These can be found below:

If you use our presence in social networking sites to contact us (e.g. through private messages or commenting on/sharing contributions or reactions to such), we will process the data you provide us with solely for the purpose of contacting you and will not merge it with any other data available to us. The legal basis for the collection of data is, therefore, Art. 6 (1) (b) of the EU’s GDPR. If the contact does not relate to a pre-contractual measure of your own or a contract that you yourself have already concluded with HEIN, LEHMANN GmbH, we will process your personal data on the basis of Art. 6 (1) (f) of the GDPR in the context of our justified interest in processing your request in this way.

Your personal data will be deleted as soon as the purpose for which it was stored no longer applies or you request us to delete it. Furthermore, data may be stored if this has been provided for by the European or national legislator in accordance with EU ordinances, laws or other regulations to which HEIN, LEHMANN GmbH is subject. The data will also be deleted when a storage period prescribed by the above-mentioned standards expires unless it is necessary to continue storing the data in order to conclude or fulfil a contract. For the length of time that operators of the social networking sites store your personal data, please refer to the respective data protection notices mentioned above.
