Privacy Policy, Status: October 2017
The protection of internet users’ data is very important to us. Therefore, we always observe the applicable legal provisions on data protection and data security. In the following, we explain what information we may collect and how we handle it.

Scope of application of these data protection provisions

These data protection provisions apply to all data collected and used on Internet pages of Passolution GmbH (hereinafter: “Passolution”). By using our website, you consent to the collection and use of your data and information in accordance with this privacy policy and the terms of use of our website.

General

We do not collect any personal data (e.g. names, addresses, telephone numbers or e-mail addresses) on our websites unless you have voluntarily provided us with such data (e.g. by registration or survey) or consented to the collection of such data, or unless the relevant data protection regulations permit it.

Collection of usage data

When you visit our website, our web servers store the IP address and the domain from which the access is made, the date and time of the visit, the website that you visit with us as well as technical information about the visit (http method, http version, http status code, browser used) as standard. If you log in as a user on our website, the user ID required for logging in is also stored.

Collection and processing of personal data

In some of our web applications, we create a unique passolution web profile of you to store your personal settings, e.g. for simulation configurations, the shopping cart, favourites, etc.. This data can be used for statistical purposes as well as for market analysis.

Access to some of our websites and web pages requires prior registration. Personal data is only collected if you provide it of your own accord, e.g. as part of a registration, a survey, a competition or in the performance of a contract. After registration, you can use the registered online services. In addition to registration, Passolution may ask you about specific interests or preferences in order to provide you with tailored information and to offer you an optimal web experience.

Disclosure

It is possible that your data is passed on to the sales department and third parties within the passolution network if this serves your business interest, e.g. if we send products to you, then we pass on personal data to the supplier, sales department or third parties who work together with us.

A transfer to state institutions and authorities only takes place within the framework of mandatory national legal provisions.

Our employees are bound to secrecy and to the protection of personal data provided by us.

Purpose

Passolution collects user data to make communication with you more personal and interactive. With your data, you enable Passolution to design our customer service more efficiently and to continuously improve our internet presence. When you provide us with personal information, we use it primarily to respond to one of your enquiries, process your orders, deliver customized information or offers, and strengthen our customer relationships. Sometimes we use and share your information within the group to understand your needs and those of your business and to improve our products and services. Also, we (or third parties on our behalf) may use personal information to contact you about a quote or survey, or share personal information with our vetted network of distributors when it serves a business transaction we have with you (for example, when we need to send you products). Finally, Passolution must disclose personal information when required by law. In all other cases, we will not share any of your data with third parties without your explicit consent.

Profile Centre

Access to some Passolution websites requires prior registration. When registering, you voluntarily provide us with personal data. After registration, you can make full use of Passolution’s online services. In addition to registration, we may ask you about particular interests or preferences in order to provide you with tailored information and improve your use of our websites. You may object to the collection and use of this information in the future and unsubscribe from any Passolution communications to which you have subscribed. Every email from us contains a link to your personal “Profile Centre” where you can view, change and delete the data you have shared with us and subscribe or unsubscribe to information.

Right of revocation

If you have given your consent in one of our applications to the use of your data for the receipt of company and product information (e.g. via email), you can revoke your respective consent at any time with effect for the future. To do so, simply send an email to info@passolution.eu.

You can also reset your cookie setting and revoke your consent to data processing at any time. 

Safety

We have taken extensive technical and operational precautions to protect your data from accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction or access by unauthorised persons. Our security procedures are regularly reviewed and adapted to technological progress.
