Herpa Miniaturmodelle GmbH takes data protection seriously. Its collection of your data takes place completely within the framework of statutory regulations. The collection of your data takes place within the framework of statutory data protection provisions. The following outlines exactly how the law applies in Herpa’s use of your personal data:
1. What is personal data?
Personal data is any data that can be used to clearly determine your identity. This includes details such as your (correct) name, address or telephone number, and your E-Mail address insofar as it contains your name, and consequently allows your identity to be determined. Information without any reference to name, e.g. only your age or only your sex, therefore does not constitute personal data.
2. For what purpose is personal data collected and stored?
In principal, using the online content of herpa.de does not require personal data to be revealed. herpa.de only collects your personal data when you avail yourself of services for which registration is obligatory – for example in placing an order at our eXtra-Shop. In so doing, herpa.de respects the principle of data economy, and only collects, processes and uses such personal data as is necessary for the provision of the respective service and its personalisation.
3. Protection of your personal data
Your personal data is stored by herpa.de on an especially secure server located in the Federal Republic of Germany, and is protected from unauthorized access by series-connected security systems. Staff at Herpa Miniaturmodelle GmbH and its system service providers test the efficacy of this protection on a daily basis. Herpa staff are duty-bound to not reveal any personal data collected. Without your express consent, Herpa will at no point pass on your personal data to a third party, unless:
•the transfer of data is necessary for the carrying out of a service of which you wish to avail yourself
•a sub-contractor commissioned in the scope of provision of products or services requires such data (sub-contractors are entitled to use such data insofar as it is necessary for the provision of the respective product or service. Herpa contractually binds its partners to adhering to data protection regulations)
•an enforceable, official or court directive has been issued
4. Collection of general information
By accessing the Herpa websites, general information is automatically stored in a log file. Here, the name of the accessed file, the date and time of its access, a description of the type of web browser used, data volume transferred, and a successful access message are stored. This data is generated when accessing any other website on the internet, and so does not constitute a special function of the Herpa websites. Storage is conducted for the purposes of data security, and analysis of this data is performed anonymously and for purely statistical purposes. This raw statistical data is deleted after190 days. Further data collection and storage may be denied at any time with immediate effect.
6. Use of social plug-ins (Facebook, Google+, Twitter)
Our online content uses social plug-ins ("Plugins") of the social networks on its home page.
•facebook.com, operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA ("Facebook"). The plug-in is denoted by a Facebook-Logo. When you access a web page containing such a plug-in from our online content, your browser establishes a direct connection with the servers of Facebook. The respective content of the plug-in is transmitted directly from Facebook to your browser, and from there incorporated into the website. By incorporating the plug-in, Facebook receives the information that you have accessed the respective page of our online content. If you are logged into Facebook, the provider can assign the visit to your respective account. If you interact with the plug-ins, e.g. press the "like" button for Facebook or send a comment, the corresponding information is transferred directly from your browser to Facebook where it is stored. Please refer to the data protection advice of the respective plug-in provider for the purpose and extent of data collection and its further processing and use by Facebook, as well as the relevant laws and possibilities for adjusting settings for the protection of your privacy. If you do not desire Facebook to collect data about you via our online content, you should log out before visiting our web pages.
