3. General information and mandatory information

Data protection
The operators of this website and its pages take the protection of your personal data very seriously. Hence, we handle your personal data as confidential information and in compliance with the statutory data protection regulations and this Data Protection Declaration.
Whenever you use this website, a variety of personal information will be collected. Personal data comprises data that can be used to personally identify you. This Data Protection Declaration explains which data we collect as well as the purposes we use this data for. It also explains how, and for which purpose the information is collected.
We herewith advise you that the transmission of data via the Internet (i.e. through e-mail communications) may be prone to security gaps. It is not possible to completely protect data against third-party access.

The data processing controller on this website is:


AFS Airfilter Systeme GmbH
Am Richtbach 14
74547 Uebrigshausen
Phone: +49 7944 9160-0
E-mail: info(at)afs-airfilter.de



The controller is the natural person or legal entity that single-handedly or jointly with others makes

Storage duration Unless a more specific storage period has been specified in this privacy policy, your personal data will remain with us until the purpose for which it was collected no longer applies.

Information on data transfer to the USA
Our website uses, in particular, tools from companies based in the USA. When these tools are active, your personal information may be transferred to the US servers of these companies. We must point out that the USA is not a safe third country within the meaning of EU data protection law. US companies are required to release personal data to security authorities without you as the data subject being able to take legal action against this. The possibility cannot therefore be excluded that US authorities (e.g. secret services) may process, evaluate, and permanently store your data on US servers for monitoring purposes. We have no influence over these processing activities.
Revocation of your consent to the processing of data
A wide range of data processing transactions are possible only subject to your express consent. You can also revoke at any time any consent you have already given us. This shall be without prejudice to the lawfulness
of any data collection that occurred prior to your revocation.
Right to object to the collection of data in special cases; right to object to direct
advertising (Art. 21 GDPR)
IN THE EVENT THAT DATA ARE PROCESSED ON THE BASIS OF ART. 6 SECT. 1 LIT. E OR F GDPR, YOU
HAVE THE RIGHT TO AT ANY TIME OBJECT TO THE PROCESSING OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA BASED
ON GROUNDS ARISING FROM YOUR UNIQUE SITUATION. THIS ALSO APPLIES TO ANY PROFILING
BASED ON THESE PROVISIONS. TO DETERMINE THE LEGAL BASIS, ON WHICH ANY PROCESSING OF
DATA IS BASED, PLEASE CONSULT THIS DATA PROTECTION DECLARATION. IF YOU LOG AN
OBJECTION, WE WILL NO LONGER PROCESS YOUR AFFECTED PERSONAL DATA, UNLESS WE ARE IN
A POSITION TO PRESENT COMPELLING PROTECTION WORTHY GROUNDS FOR THE PROCESSING OF
YOUR DATA, THAT OUTWEIGH YOUR INTERESTS, RIGHTS AND FREEDOMS OR IF THE PURPOSE OF
THE PROCESSING IS THE CLAIMING, EXERCISING OR DEFENCE OF LEGAL ENTITLEMENTS
(OBJECTION PURSUANT TO ART. 21 SECT. 1 GDPR).
IF YOUR PERSONAL DATA IS BEING PROCESSED IN ORDER TO ENGAGE IN DIRECT ADVERTISING,
YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO AT ANY TIME OBJECT TO THE PROCESSING OF YOUR AFFECTED
PERSONAL DATA FOR THE PURPOSES OF SUCH ADVERTISING. THIS ALSO APPLIES TO PROFILING TO
THE EXTENT THAT IT IS AFFILIATED WITH SUCH DIRECT ADVERTISING. IF YOU OBJECT, YOUR
PERSONAL DATA WILL SUBSEQUENTLY NO LONGER BE USED FOR DIRECT ADVERTISING PURPOSES
(OBJECTION PURSUANT TO ART. 21 SECT. 2 GDPR).
Right to log a complaint with the competent supervisory agency
In the event of violations of the GDPR, data subjects are entitled to log a complaint with a supervisory
agency, in particular in the member state where they usually maintain their domicile, place of work or at the place where the alleged violation occurred. The right to log a complaint is in effect regardless of any other administrative or court proceedings available as legal recourses.
Right to data portability
You have the right to demand that we hand over any data we automatically process on the basis of your consent or in order to fulfil a contract be handed over to you or a third party in a commonly used, machine readable format. If you should demand the direct transfer of the data to another controller, this will be done only if it is technically feasible.
SSL and/or TLS encryption
For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as purchase orders or inquiries you submit to us as the website operator, this website uses either an SSL or a TLS encryption program. You can recognize an encrypted connection by checking whether the address line of the browser
switches from “http://” to “https://” and also by the appearance of the lock icon in the browser line.
If the SSL or TLS encryption is activated, data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
Information about, rectification and eradication of data
Within the scope of the applicable statutory provisions, you have the right to at any time demand
information about your archived personal data, their source and recipients as well as the purpose of the
processing of your data. You may also have a right to have your data rectified or eradicated. If you have
questions about this subject matter or any other questions about personal data, please do not hesitate to
contact us at any time.
Right to demand processing restrictions
You have the right to demand the imposition of restrictions as far as the processing of your personal data is
concerned. To do so, you may contact us at any time. The right to demand restriction of processing applies in
the following cases:
In the event that you should dispute the correctness of your data archived by us, we will usually need
some time to verify this claim. During the time that this investigation is ongoing, you have the right to
demand that we restrict the processing of your personal data.
If the processing of your personal data was/is conducted in an unlawful manner, you have the option to
demand the restriction of the processing of your data in lieu of demanding the eradication of this data.
If we do not need your personal data any longer and you need it to exercise, defend or claim legal
entitlements, you have the right to demand the restriction of the processing of your personal data instead
of its eradication.
If you have raised an objection pursuant to Art. 21 Sect. 1 GDPR, your rights and our rights will have to be
weighed against each other. As long as it has not been determined whose interests prevail, you have the
right to demand a restriction of the processing of your personal data.
If you have restricted the processing of your personal data, these data – with the exception of their archiving
– may be processed only subject to your consent or to claim, exercise or defend legal entitlements or to
protect the rights of other natural persons or legal entities or for important public interest reasons cited by
the European Union or a member state of the EU.

4. Recording of data on this website

Cookies
Our websites and pages use what the industry refers to as “cookies.” Cookies are small text files that do not
cause any damage to your device. They are either stored temporarily for the duration of a session (session
cookies) or they are permanently archived on your device (permanent cookies). Session cookies are
automatically deleted once you terminate your visit. Permanent cookies remain archived on your device
until you actively delete them, or they are automatically eradicated by your web browser.
In some cases, it is possible that third-party cookies are stored on your device once you enter our site (thirdparty
cookies). These cookies enable you or us to take advantage of certain services offered by the third
party (e.g. cookies for the processing of payment services).
Cookies have a variety of functions. Many cookies are technically essential since certain website functions
would not work in the absence of the cookies (e.g. the shopping cart function or the display of videos). The
purpose of other cookies may be the analysis of user patterns or the display of promotional messages.
Cookies, which are required for the performance of electronic communication transactions (required
cookies) or for the provision of certain functions you want to use (functional cookies, e.g. for the shopping
cart function) or those that are necessary for the optimization of the website (e.g. cookies that provide
measurable insights into the web audience), shall be stored on the basis of Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. f GDPR, unless a
different legal basis is cited. The operator of the website has a legitimate interest in the storage of cookies to
ensure the technically error free and optimized provision of the operator’s services. If your consent to the
storage of the cookies has been requested, the respective cookies are stored exclusively on the basis of the
consent obtained (Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. a GDPR); this consent may be revoked at any time.
You have the option to set up your browser in such a manner that you will be notified any time cookies are
placed and to permit the acceptance of cookies only in specific cases. You may also exclude the acceptance of
cookies in certain cases or in general or activate the delete function for the automatic eradication of cookies
when the browser closes. If cookies are deactivated, the functions of this website may be limited.

In the event that third-party cookies are used or if cookies are used for analytical purposes, we will
separately notify you in conjunction with this Data Protection Policy and, if applicable, ask for your consent.
Server log files
The provider of this website and its pages automatically collects and stores information in so-called server
log files, which your browser communicates to us automatically. The information comprises:
The type and version of browser used
The used operating system
Referrer URL
The hostname of the accessing computer
The time of the server inquiry
The IP address
This data is not merged with other data sources.
This data is recorded on the basis of Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. f GDPR. The operator of the website has a legitimate
interest in the technically error free depiction and the optimization of the operator’s website. In order to
achieve this, server log files must be recorded.
Request by e-mail, telephone, or fax
If you contact us by e-mail, telephone or fax, your request, including all resulting personal data (name,
request) will be stored and processed by us for the purpose of processing your request. We do not pass these
data on without your consent.
These data are processed on the basis of Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. b GDPR if your inquiry is related to the fulfillment
of a contract or is required for the performance of pre-contractual measures. In all other cases, the data are
processed on the basis of our legitimate interest in the effective handling of inquiries submitted to us (Art. 6
Sect. 1 lit. f GDPR) or on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. a GDPR) if it has been obtained.
The data sent by you to us via contact requests remain with us until you request us to delete, revoke your
consent to the storage or the purpose for the data storage lapses (e.g. after completion of your request).
Mandatory statutory provisions - in particular statutory retention periods - remain unaffected.

5. Social media

Instagram plug-in
We have integrated functions of the public media platform Instagram into this website. These functions are
being offered by Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland.
If you are logged into your Instagram account, you may click the Instagram button to link contents from this
website to your Instagram profile. This enables Instagram to allocate your visit to this website to your user
account. We have to point out that we as the provider of the website and its pages do not have any
knowledge of the content of the data transferred and its use by Instagram.

6. Plug-ins and Tools

YouTube with expanded data protection integration
Our website embeds videos of the website YouTube. The website operator is Google Ireland Limited
(“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.
We use YouTube in the expanded data protection mode. According to YouTube, this mode ensures that
YouTube does not store any information about visitors to this website before they watch the video.
Nevertheless, this does not necessarily mean that the sharing of data with YouTube partners can be ruled
out as a result of the expanded data protection mode. For instance, regardless of whether you are watching a
video, YouTube will always establish a connection with the Google DoubleClick network.
As soon as you start to play a YouTube video on this website, a connection to YouTube’s servers will be
established. As a result, the YouTube server will be notified, which of our pages you have visited. If you are
logged into your YouTube account while you visit our site, you enable YouTube to directly allocate your
browsing patterns to your personal profile. You have the option to prevent this by logging out of your
YouTube account.
Furthermore, after you have started to play a video, YouTube will be able to place various cookies on your device or comparable technologies for recognition (e.g. device fingerprinting). In this way YouTube will be
able to obtain information about this website’s visitors. Among other things, this information will be used to
generate video statistics with the aim of improving the user friendliness of the site and to prevent attempts
to commit fraud.
Under certain circumstances, additional data processing transactions may be triggered after you have
started to play a YouTube video, which are beyond our control.
The use of YouTube is based on our interest in presenting our online content in an appealing manner.
Pursuant to Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. f GDPR, this is a legitimate interest. If a corresponding agreement has been
requested, the processing takes place exclusively on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR; the agreement can
be revoked at any time.
For more information on how YouTube handles user data, please consult the YouTube Data Privacy Policy
under:
policies.google.com/privacy.
Google Web Fonts
To ensure that fonts used on this website are uniform, this website uses so-called Web Fonts provided by
Google. When you access a page on our website, your browser will load the required web fonts into your
browser cache to correctly display text and fonts.
To do this, the browser you use will have to establish a connection with Google’s servers. As a result, Google
will learn that your IP address was used to access this website. The use of Google Web Fonts is based on Art.
6 Sect. 1 lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in a uniform presentation of the font on the operator’s website. If a respective declaration of consent has been obtained (e.g. consent to the archiving
of cookies), the data will be processed exclusively on the basis of Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. a GDPR. Any such consent
may be revoked at any time.
If your browser should not support Web Fonts, a standard font installed on your computer will be used.
For more information on Google Web Fonts, please follow this link:
developers.google.com/fonts/faq and consult Google’s Data Privacy Declaration under:
policies.google.com/privacy.
Google Maps
This website uses the mapping service Google Maps. The provider is Google Ireland Limited (“Google”),
Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.
To enable the use of the Google Maps features, your IP address must be stored. As a rule, this information is
transferred to one of Google’s servers in the United States, where it is archived. The operator of this website
has no control over the data transfer.
We use Google Maps to present our online content in an appealing manner and to make the locations
disclosed on our website easy to find. This constitutes a legitimate interest as defined in Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. f
GDPR. If a respective declaration of consent has been obtained, the data shall be processed exclusively on
the basis of Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. a GDPR. This declaration of consent may be revoked at any time.
Data transmission to the US is based on the Standard Contractual Clauses (SCC) of the European
Commission. Details can be found here:
privacy.google.com/businesses/gdprcontrollerterms/ and
privacy.google.com/businesses/gdprcontrollerterms/sccs/.
