Data protection

Thank you for your interest in our website. The protection of your personal data is very important to us, VARTA Microbattery GmbH (you can find more information on VARTA Microbattery GmbH in the imprint) as the provider of this website within the meaning of the Telemedia Act (TMG) and as the person responsible within the meaning of the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG). Of course, we observe the statutory provisions of the BDSG, the TMG, the GDPR and other data protection regulations.

With this data protection declaration we would like to explain to you what data we collect when you use our website, for what purposes and in what way we collect, process and use this data and what rights you are entitled to.

1. Automatic data collection and processing by web server

In principle, it is not necessary for you to provide personal data to visit and use our website for purely informational purposes.

As is usual with many websites, the following data is automatically collected and processed by our web servers when you call up the individual websites belonging to our website:
  • IP address of the calling computer,
  • Name and URL of the accessed file,
  • Date, time and duration of access,
  • amount of data transferred,
  • Notification of whether the retrieval was successful
  • Identification data (type, version and language) of the browser used and the operating system of the calling computer,
  • URL of the referring website, if access was via a link, and additional search term, if access was via a search engine, and
  • Name of your internet access provider.

These data cannot be assigned to specific persons. A merging of this data with other data or a transfer of this data does not take place, just as there is no creation of personal user profiles.

The data is processed exclusively for the purpose of enabling the use of the website (connection establishment), for internal system-related purposes, such as technical administration and system security, and statistical purposes, for example to better tailor the website to your needs through anonymous evaluation of general user behavior to be able to cut to size (see below under 2. and 3.)

2. Cookies

When you visit the website, our web server stores cookies on your computer when you use it.

Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer's hard drive to help us analyze how users use the website. Cookies cannot run programs or transmit viruses to your computer. They serve to make our website more user-friendly and effective overall.

For technical session control, we use so-called session cookies, which are used to identify your browser for the duration of your visit to the website. Session cookies make it easier for you to navigate through our website and enable us, in order to optimize the website to your needs, to anonymously evaluate general user behavior based on the number of visitors. No personal reference can be made from the cookies. These session cookies are automatically deleted after 15 minutes of inactivity on the website, after the end of the respective session, at the latest when you close your browser. We also use so-called permanent cookies to identify and identify your browser when you visit our website again To be able to automatically provide you with the same functions or the default settings you have made. Such permanent cookies are automatically deleted 30 days after your visit to our website if you do not visit our website again.

We also use session cookies and permanent cookies as part of the evaluation using Google Analytics (see below under 3.).

Of course you can also view our website without cookies. Most browsers, however, automatically accept cookies. You can prevent cookies from being saved or have your browser warn you before a cookie is saved by setting your browser settings accordingly. You can find more information about these functions in the help menu of your browser. However, it is possible that you will only be able to use some of our website functions, websites or parts thereof to a limited extent or not at all if you exclude the use of cookies.

3. Evaluation using Google Analytics

The website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service from Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics also uses so-called cookies, i.e. text files that are stored on your computer and that enable your use of the website to be analyzed (see section 2 above).

The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, we have activated the Google Analytics IP anonymization function on this website so that your IP address is shortened beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. The full IP address will only be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there in exceptional cases.

Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide the website operator with other services relating to website activity and internet usage. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.

You can prevent the collection and transfer of the data generated by the cookies and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) to Google and the processing of this data by Google by downloading the browser plug-in available under the following link and install:http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout

You can also prevent Google Analytics from collecting data by clicking on the following link. An opt-out cookie is set that prevents the future collection of your data when you visit this website: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout

You can find more information on the terms of use and data protection of Google Analytics at www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html or at https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/.

4. Collection and processing of personal data

We collect, process and use personal data such as your name, your postal address or your e-mail address only insofar as these have been entered by you on the website and transmitted to us and insofar as such collection, processing and use is legally permitted or by your Consent is covered.

The use of certain services on our website such as contact forms, B2B portal, direct inquiries by e-mail, our customer survey or the hearing test offered on our Power One website requires the collection, processing and use of your data. We need this in order to forward your inquiries and processing information to the specific department and to be able to evaluate them.

By participating in our customer survey, you automatically take part in an annual raffle. You will be notified of any winnings using your contact details. The draw takes place in December of each year. The information you provide as part of the customer survey is analyzed internally for customer satisfaction purposes. This enables us to ensure that we are constantly improving and developing our products according to your wishes.

If your prior consent is also required for certain data collection, processing and use, such as subscribing to a newsletter, we will of course ask you for your consent beforehand at the relevant point on our website. This declaration of consent is recorded by us and you can access it at any time. We recommend that you print out the declaration of consent for your own records. You are entitled to revoke any declarations of consent that you have given, in whole or in part, with effect for the future.

5. Disclosure of data to third parties

The personal data collected when using our website will not be passed on to third parties or transmitted in any other way. This does not apply to the transmission of personal data to state institutions and authorities as well as private rights holders on the basis of legal regulations or judicial or official decisions as well as the transfer to state institutions and authorities in the event of attacks on our legal interests for the purposes of legal or criminal prosecution.

As far as permitted by law or with your prior consent, certain personal data may be passed on to other VARTA Microbattery GmbH companies and external service providers in the context of the processing purposes previously communicated to you. External service providers that we use to operate the website or to handle certain services on our website process personal data exclusively on our behalf and are contractually obliged to comply with the applicable statutory provisions on data protection and data security. You are not considered a third party in terms of data protection law.

We will not pass on your data to insecure third countries.

6. Data security

The data collected and stored by us are treated confidentially and protected against loss and changes as well as unauthorized access by third parties through suitable technical and organizational precautions. Data transfers between your computer and us via our website are SSL-encrypted.

7. Your rights

You have the right to information about the data stored about your person, their origin and recipient as well as the purpose of storage at any time. To do this, you can contact us using the contact details given in the legal notice. If you have any questions about data protection with us or if you would like more detailed information on a point, you can also contact us at these addresses.

You have the right to have your stored data corrected, blocked or deleted at any time. If the deletion contradicts legal, contractual, commercial or tax law reasons, in particular legal retention periods, the data will be blocked instead of deletion.

If you make use of these rights of correction, blocking or deletion or if you want to revoke a given declaration of consent to the processing and use of your personal data in whole or in part, please contact us using the contact details given in the legal notice.

If you want to contact us by e-mail, we point out that the content of unencrypted e-mails can be viewed by third parties. We therefore recommend that you send confidential information encrypted or by post.

8. Deletion of your data

When storing your personal data, we comply with the statutory provisions.

If you have also granted us a longer storage period, we will keep the data until this period has expired or until we receive your revocation.

9. Changes to the data protection declaration

From time to time it may be necessary to change this data protection declaration, for example due to the further development of our website or legal changes. VARTA Microbattery GmbH therefore reserves the right to change the data protection declaration at any time with effect for the future. We therefore recommend that you read this data protection declaration again at regular intervals.

10. Disclaimer forr links to other websites

We cannot accept responsibility for data protection practices or the content of websites not operated by VARTA Microbattery GmbH to which we link from our website.

11. Contact details

If you have any further questions regarding the processing of your personal data, please do not hesitate to contact us.
