elero GmbH takes data privacy seriously and would like to explain to you with the help of this data privacy statement which data is absolutely required, how we use the data and how you can correct or modify your details. We feel that the protection of your privacy is of the utmost importance. That’s why observing the strict legal requirements for data privacy is a matter of course for us. We firmly believe that data protection begins with transparency. Therefore, it is our intention that you always know when and which of your personal data we use, how we use it and even how you can restrict or prevent use of your data.
We do not collect, store, process or use any of your personal data when you call up our web page. However, data is temporarily stored in a protocol file on our server for the purpose of data security which may be used for identification (e.g. IP address, date, time and retrieved files). This usage data is anonymously analysed during internal studies with respect to user interests and behaviour for statistical purposes.
In other respects, we collect personal data that you provide to us, for example within the scope of registration, by filling out forms or sending e-mails, within the scope of ordering products or services, making inquiries or requesting material.
We use personal data you give us (name, address, e-mail address) in accordance with the provisions of the German Federal Data Protection Act.
Your personal data, to the extent to which it is necessary for the establishment, structuring or amendment of the contractual relationship (inventory data), will be used exclusively for implementation of the contracts concluded between us, for example for the delivery of goods to the address you specify. Use of your inventory data beyond this for purposes of market research or for user-oriented design of our offers does not take place.
Your personal data, which is necessary to enable the use of our services and for invoicing (usage data), is first used exclusively for implementation of the contracts concluded between us. Such usage data in particular includes the characteristics for your identification as a user, information about the beginning and end as well as of the extent of the respective usage and details about the telemedia services you utilize as a user.
After you give your consent we are authorized to collect, process or store your personal data, combine it with other data, archive and make use of it. This declaration of consent occurs separately and voluntarily and is logged; you can retrieve your content at any time. If you have consented to the use of your personal data for special purposes that are subject to the declaration of consent, you can withdraw this consent at any time. We will then delete the data. If data is sent to Third Parties with your consent, these Third Parties will be informed immediately and called on to delete the data. You have the right to restrict the consent to use of your data. In this case the data will only be deleted within the scope of the restriction. The use of your e-mail address for advertising purposes for our newsletter requires your express consent.
“I consent to the use of my e-mail address as well as other voluntary information for the individual compilation and sending of selected information. I can withdraw this consent at any time for the future vis-á-vis elero GmbH.”
This declaration of consent occurs separately and voluntarily and you have the right to withdraw it at any time.
However, the German Federal Data Protection Act always allows data processing and use when it happens within the scope of the intended purpose of a contractual relationship or relationship similar to a contract or if it is necessary for the protection of legitimate interests of the unit storing the data and there is no reason to assume that the legitimate interests of the party concerned to exclude the processing or the usage prevail. In spite of revocation or wholly or partially withdrawn declaration of consent, data processing and usage can thus take place without your consent within the limited scope permitted by law, in particular due to legal archiving obligations.
You have the right to withdraw your consent with regard to the storage of your personal data at any time or to ask for the data to be corrected. You likewise have the right at any time to withdraw your approval for the collection and storage of further voluntary data by us. Please note that for the protection of your privacy and your security we verify your identity before you can carry out such measures.
If you oppose the use of your data for the future and/or wish to withdraw a granted consent, please contact the following address enclosing a copy of your ID card:
elero GmbH, Linsenhofer Straße 65, 72660 Beuren, Deutschland/Germany, firstname.lastname@example.org
In the case of revocation of the storage, processing and use of your personal data we will delete all of your stored data without delay. However, please note that in this case we will no longer be able to provide our services that are subject to registration.
You have the right to have your personal data stored with us blocked, deleted or corrected.
If you wish to have personal data stored with us blocked, deleted or corrected, please contact the following address in writing and enclose a copy of your personal ID card:
