General

We would like to thank you for your interest in our company. The Controller responsible for the offer of this website is cegecom s.a. We have taken technical and organizational measures to ensure that the relevant laws on data protection and IT security are observed. Below you will find out what information we may collect and how we use it.

We generally use your personal data to answer your enquiry, process your order or provide you with access to special information or offers. Within the scope of a registration, contact request or similar, you can voluntarily provide us with your personal data. In this context, it may be necessary to transfer your data to a group company. Your data will not be transmitted to third parties outside the Group unless your inquiry or the service or product you have requested explicitly states so. You will then be informed accordingly. If you wish, you can also provide us with personal data about applications that are integrated into our platform (e. g. contact forms or services that require the creation of user accounts). The use of these applications may be subject to different terms and conditions from this Privacy Policy. Within the framework of additional data protection clauses, we will then explicitly point this out to you. Article 6 (1)(b) of the GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing of personal data necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are a party. Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for the processing of personal data, Article 6 (1)(a) of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis.

Legal protection for children

Children should not transmit any personal data to us without the consent of their parents or guardian. We encourage all parents and guardians to instruct their children in the safe and responsible handling of personal data on the Internet. In any case, we will not knowingly collect personal data from children or use it in any way or disclose it to third parties without authorization.

IT Security

Cegecom s.a. takes precautions to ensure the security of your personal data. Your data will be conscientiously protected against loss, destruction, falsification, manipulation and unauthorized access or unauthorized disclosure. The transmission of your data from the Internet is partially unencrypted. As a result, unauthorized access by third parties cannot be completely excluded.

Anonymization of the IP address

In order to enable you to use our website anonymously, we have deliberately refrained from logging IP addresses. We will pseudonymise your IP address before storing it in our web server log file in a data protection compliant process. The pseudonymised IP addresses are used by us, for example, to detect and counteract attacks or to create web statistics.

Newsletter

Your E-mail address will be processed for sending the newsletter. In addition, further information (referred to as “usage data”) is collected and processed within the scope of our newsletter services, whether and when you open the newsletter, whether and which links you click on, which topics are of interest to you, and where you access the newsletter (e.g. to determine locally relevant offers and services). The usage data is collected via the use of small graphics as well as individualized links, which are integrated into the newsletter and upon which we can measure the above-described usage.

Legal basis for sending the newsletter as well as for the optimization and individualization of the newsletter service is your consent in accordance with Art. 6 sec. 1 lit. a GDPR.

Use of social plugins

For data protection purposes, we have deliberately decided against using plug-ins of social networks. Therefore, there will be no generally automatic transfer to social networks as Facebook, Twitter or YouTube for example by accessing our website. Instead HME provides a hyperlink to the requested social network.

Our websites enables you – if you wish – to connect with social media operator LinkedIn Corporation, 2029 Stierlin Court, Mountain View, CA 94043 United States (“LinkedIn”).

For the information on the purpose and scope of data collection and procession by the social media platforms, as well as your rights in this respect and settings options for protecting your privacy please visit LinkedIn’s privacy policy. Please notice: This connection will only happen if you actively want to do this.

The plugins are identifiable by a white “in” on a blue background for LinkedIn.

Contact form / Blog function

On the website there is a contact form / blog function that can be used for electronic contact. Alternatively, it is possible to contact us via the provided e-mail address. If you contact us via one of these channels, the personal data transmitted by the data subject will be automatically stored. The storage serves solely for the purpose of processing or contacting. The data will not be passed on to third parties. It is forbidden to use the contact form or the blog for offences that are illegal or punishable by law. Misconduct is passed on by us to the competent authority for further investigation.

Links to external websites

Our website contains links to external websites operated by third parties, the content of which we cannot influence. For this reason, we cannot accept any responsibility for this third-party content. In each and every case, the third party making the linked website available or operating it is responsible for its content. When the link was created to these websites, they were reviewed as to whether they violated any laws. At the time the link was set, no content was recognizable that was in violation of the law. Furthermore, we cannot reasonably be expected to permanently control the content of the pages of third parties to which we have links if there is no concrete indication of a law being violated. However should any such violations of the law become known to us, we will remove the link in question immediately.
