Collection, processing, use, forwarding, and deletion of personal data
When a user visits the websites, only anonymised access data without personal references are logged, e.g. names of retrieved pages, browser type, and Internet provider. Personal data are collected only when provided voluntarily, e.g. during an ordering process, opening of a customer account, or registration. This collected data is used exclusively for processing of orders or contracts and for internal statistical evaluations. To the extent that you have not agreed a use of data that goes beyond order processing, your data will be blocked after order processing is complete and deleted after passing of the mandatory statutory retention periods of up to ten years. Data collected merely during a visit to the website is not forwarded to third parties.
When ordering through the online shop, data that are collected during and are necessary for order processing and completion, e.g. full name, e-mail address, and mailing address, are used only for order processing and for internal statistical analysis. Data that you provide during inquiries through the contact form in the mandatory fields, e.g. title, name, mailing address, telephone number, and e-mail address are saved for the purpose of forwarding of the inquiry to the correct contact and for processing of the inquiry. The data are not used for other purposes, particularly not for promotional purposes. To the extent required for order processing or invoicing purposes, the required data may be forwarded to third parties such as sales partners or freight forwarding companies for the purposes of order fulfilment.
Data that are collected during online warranty registration, the completion of which requires contact data as well as product information about the machine for which the warranty period will be extended, are required for processing in the event of a warranty claim and assignment of the machine. Reminders of the yearly, legally required repetition tests for the machines and any necessary recall actions can occur. After passing of the extended warranty period, the data collected during online warranty registration will be deleted.
If you sign up to receive the newsletter after registration with your e-mail address and explicitly approve when sending, the provided e-mail address will be used to inform you of changes, updates, and amendments to OWT GmbH&Co.KG products until you unsubscribe, which may be done at any time. If the newsletter is no longer desired, your e-mail address will be deleted from the distribution list. The e-mail address that is required for receipt of the newsletter will not be forwarded to third parties.
Personal data will not be transmitted to third parties beyond the specified cases to the extent that we are not legally obligated to do so or have not received corresponding approval from you.
