PUTZMEISTER collects, stores and processes your personal data only if it is permitted by law or if you have given your consent for the same. If you would like to receive information regarding the data you have stored with PUTZMEISTER, please contact us via the contact address given under "Contact".

Personal data (sometimes referred to as identification data) is the data which fundamentally enables the identification of the person. It does not matter, whether the provision can be obtained on the basis of a single piece of information; this will rarely be the case. However, higher the capability to merge information and data, higher the accuracy to identify the person. The personal data includes particularly the name, address, age, e-mail address and telephone number of a person.


1    Collection and processing of personal data by PUTZMEISTER

PUTZMEISTER collects, stores and processes your personal data, only if it is permitted by law or if you have given your consent for the same.
This data is obtained in two ways: Either you have given us the data or we collect it when you use our services. 

 

2    Data which you provide

As a rule, you can use our website without providing us personal information directly. In case of some services such as contacting us via our contact form, we will ask for personal information such as your name, e-mail address and mailing address in order to be able to complete the service in a quick and user-friendly manner or to be able to offer the service at all costs. Detailed information regarding all services offered by PUTZMEISTER can be found in the website under the Menu "Individual services" for this privacy policy.

 

3    Data which we receive through your usage of our services

Some data is already available automatically or because of technical reasons when you visit our website. For instance, this always includes your IP address. The Internet Protocol (IP) address is a unique number which is assigned to your computer. It is necessary for you to be able to surf on the Internet in all cases, since all the data packets which you need for surfing are sent there. In Germany, the IP address is reassigned on most private connections each time when the connection to the internet provider gets disconnected. This usually happens at least once a day. IP addresses can also be used to determine from which country a PC is accessing a website.

 

4    Log data

The data that gets collected automatically, includes the log data of the web server. Each time you access a page from our offerings and each time a file is accessed, the relevant access data of these instances is stored in a log file on our server.
Each data record consists of:

-    IP address of the requesting client
-    Date and time of access
-    URL of the retrieved file
-    Website URL from which the access is made (Referrer)
-    The identifier of the browser used by the client

The stored data is evaluated anonymously for statistical purposes only.
