Privacy Policy

1. Name and contact details of the controller
This data protection information applies to data processing by
DC Spezialfahrzeuge GmbH
Person in charge: Dorothee Chorus, tel.: +49(0)228/285033, email: dc-bonn@t-online.de
The Company appointed no data protection officer.
Based on this document, we want to inform you about the type, scope and purpose of personal data processing on our website. “Personal data” means data personally relating to you, e.g. the name, postal/email address or the date of birth.

2. Data collection
We collect and store personal data and/or data provided by you only to execute the contract we concluded with you. If data is provided via the email function on our website, we collect such data only for contacting you. Your data will be transferred only in the context and for the purpose of executing existing contracts and to the extent you do not reject to transmission. Only if you expressly consented to this in terms of point (a) of Art. 6(1) GDPR, if transfer is required in terms of point (f) of Art 6 (1) GDPR for asserting, exercising or defending legal claims without us having reason to believe that your interest in personal data not being transferred worthy of protection prevails, if a transfer is legally required in terms of point (c) of Art. 6(1) GDPR and if this is legally admissible and required in terms of point (b) of Art. 6(1) GDPR for processing contracts with you will data be provided to external third parties.

3. Cookies
The following applies to the extent we use cookies on our website. Cookies are small files which are automatically created by your browser and saved on your terminal when you visit our website. They do not harm your terminal and contain no viruses, Trojan horses or other malware. Cookies include information connected to the relevant terminal to make the use of our offer both easier and more convenient. There are two types of cookie: temporary (transient) and persistent cookies. Transient cookies particularly include session cookies which store session IDs allowing for the allocation of your browser queries to the joint session. This way, our website recognises your browser when visiting our website again. Session cookies are erased as soon as you log off or close your browser. Persistent cookies are automatically erased after a set period which may differ depending on the cookie. You can erase the cookies by changing the security settings of your browser at any time.
The above purposes represent our legitimate interest in data processing in terms of point (f) of Art. 6(1) GDPR. Since cookies might be stored on your computer, you, the user, have full control over the use of cookies. By changing your browser security settings, you can independently determine whether cookies are stored at all. This means that you can set your computer right from the start to accepting cookies not at all or only upon your consent or that you can determine that the cookies are erased when closing the browser. Should you deactivate the cookies for our website, you might be prevented from fully using the website functions.

4. Tracking tools
To the extent we use analysis tools on our website based on point (f) of Art. 6(1) GDPR, we do so to guarantee a tailored website design and continued optimisation. We might also use these measures to statistically record the use of our website and to assess its use for the purpose of optimising our offer for you. Considering this, our interests must be deemed legitimate in terms of the GDPR.
a) Google Analytics
We use Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. (https://www.google.de/intl/de/about/; 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; “Google”) for a need-based design and continued website optimisation. Pseudonymised usage profiles will be created and cookies will be used for this. Information on your use of this website created by the cookie, such as the browser type/version, operating system used, referrer URL, host name of the accessing computer (IP address) or the time of server request will be transmitted to and stored on a server of Google in the United States. The information is used to assess the use of the website, to compile reports on website activities and to render other services connected with the use of the website and the internet usage, for the purpose of market research and a need-based design of this website. Such information might also be transmitted to third parties, if that is legally prescribed or if third parties process such data on the controller’s behalf. Your IP address will under no circumstances be combined with other data of Google. The IP addresses will be pseudonymised so that no identification will be possible (IP masking). You can prevent both the collection of the data created by cookies and related to your use of the website (incl. your IP address) and the processing of such data by Google by downloading and installing a browser plug-in (https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de). As an alternative and for example for browsers of mobile terminals, you may prevent Google Analytics from collecting your data by clicking on this link. An opt-out cookie will be placed which prevents the future collection of your data when you visit this website. The opt-out cookie applies only to this browser and only to our website and will be stored on your device. If you erase the cookies in this browser, you need to place the opt-out cookie again. For more information on data protection in connection with Google Analytics, you may, inter alia, refer to the Google Analytics help (https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=de).
b) Google Conversion Tracking
We also reserve the right to use Google Conversion Tracking to statistically record the use of our website and to assess it for the purpose of optimising our website for you. Google Adwords places a cookie on your computer if a Google ad referred you to our website. These cookies become invalid after 30 days and do not serve the purpose of personal identification. If the user visits certain pages of the website of Adwords customers and if the cookie has not expired yet, Google and the customer may recognise that the user has clicked on the ad and was forwarded to this page. Every Adwords customer receives a different cookie. It is thus impossible to track cookies through the websites of Adwords customers. Information obtained by using the conversion cookie is used to compile conversion statistics for Adwords customers who have opted for conversion tracking. In this respect, Adwords customers receive information on the total number of users who clicked on their ad and have been forwarded to a webpage with a conversion tracking tag. They do not, however, receive any information which can be used for the personal identification of users. If you do not want to take part in the tracking process, you may reject the placing of the cookie necessary for that purpose , e.g. by making the relevant settings in your browser which generally deactivate the automatic setting of cookies. You may also deactivate cookies for conversion tracking by making the browser settings such that cookies from the “www.googleadservices.com” domain will be blocked . Google’s conversion tracking privacy policy is available at https://services.google.com/sitestats/de.html.

5. Social plug-ins
Based on point (f) of Art. 6(1) GDPR, we may use social plug-ins provided by the Facebook, Twitter and Instagram social networks to make our company known to the public. The advertising purpose related to this is a legitimate interest in terms of the GDPR. The relevant provider is responsible for guaranteeing operation pursuant to data protection law. These plug-ins are embedded through the “2-click method” to protect our website visitors in the best way possible.
1. Facebook
Currently not in use
2. Twitter
Currently not in use
3. Instagram
Currently not in use

6. Retention periods and erasure
We erase or block your personal data once the storage purpose was achieved or no longer exists. Data will be stored for longer periods only if we are obliged to do so under national or European legal provisions, particularly tax-law retention duties. The data will be blocked or erased once the retention periods provided for under these provisions terminated, unless we require such data for fulfilling a contract concluded with your or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.

7. Your rights under the GDPR
Under the GDPR, you have the below rights which you may exercise at any time towards the data controller indicated under sec. 1 of this Privacy Policy:
a) Right of access
Under Art 15 GDPR, you may request a confirmation of whether and which of your personal data we process. In addition, you may request us to provide non-paid information on the purposes of the processing, the categories of personal data concerned, the categories of recipients to whom your personal data was or will be disclosed, the envisaged storage period, the existence of the right to rectification, erasure, restriction of processing or objection, the existence of the right to lodge a complaint and the origin of your data if they were not collected by us. Then, you have a right to receive information as to whether your personal data was transmitted to third countries or international organisations. If this is the case, you may request information about suitable guarantees in relation to transmission.
b) Right to rectification
Under Art 16 GDPR, you may request inaccurate personal data which we store to be corrected and incomplete data to be completed.
c) Right to erasure
Pursuant to Art. 17 GDPR, you have the right to request the erasure of your personal data which we store, unless we must process them for the below purposes:
– complying with a legal obligation;
– establishing, exercising or defending legal claims:
– exercising the right of freedom of expression and information; or
– for reasons of public interest in terms of points (c) and (d) of Art. 17 GDPR.
d) Right to restriction
Under Art. 18 GDPR, you have the right to request the processing of your personal data to be restricted if:
– you contest accuracy of the personal data, that is, for a period enabling us to check personal data for accuracy;
– the processing of your data is unlawful, but you refuse to have it erased and request data usage to be restricted instead;
– we no longer require personal data for processing, but require them for the establishment, exercising or defence of legal claims instead;
– you objected to the processing of your data pursuant to Art. 21 GDPR, but it is still unclear whether legitimate reasons prevail which allow us to continue the processing despite your objection.
e) Right to be informed
If you exercised your rights of rectification, erasure or restriction of processing, we must notify all recipients to whom we disclosed your personal data of you requesting your data to be rectified/erased or the processing to be restricted, unless this turns out to be impossible or this entails unreasonable efforts. You may request us to provide the names of such recipients.
f) Right to data portability
Under Art. 20 GDPR, you may request that we submit to you any personal data provided by you in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format. As an alternative, you may request such data to be transmitted to other controllers.
g) Right to lodge a complaint
Pursuant to Art. 77 GDPR, you may lodge a complaint to a supervisory authority, e.g. that in charge of your habitual abode, place of work or our company’s registered office.

8. Right to withdraw consent
Under Art. 7(3) GDPR, you have the right to withdraw your consent to data processing at any time. Such withdrawal has no effect on the lawfulness of the processing of your personal data until the time of your withdrawal.

9. Right to object
For reasons resulting from special situations in your respect, you may, at any time, object to the processing of your personal data based on the weighing of interests (point (f) of Art. 6(1) GDPR). This is particularly the case if data processing is not required for executing a contract. Should you exercise your right to object, we ask you to also indicate the reasons. Afterwards, we no longer process your personal data, unless we are able to show that compulsory reasons worthy of protection concerning data processing prevail over your interests and rights.
Independent of the above, you may object to the processing of your personal data for advertising and data analysis purposes at any time. Please deliver your objection to the controller’s above contact data.

10. Security measures
Apart from the above, we take state-of-the-art technical and organisational security measures to comply with data protection laws and protect your data from accidental or intentional manipulation, partial/total loss, destruction or unauthorised access by third parties.

11. Privacy policy timeliness and amendments
This Privacy Policy is valid and was last updated on 25 May 2018. Due to changing legal and/or official requirements, it may be necessary to adjust this Privacy Policy.

We used the “SOS Recht Data Protection Generator” provided by MMR Müller Müller Rößner Rechtsanwältepartnerschaft, Berlin, and we were assisted by the Almers & Storsberg law firm, Bonn, when preparing this Privacy Policy.

We have no intention of transmitting personal data to third countries or international organisations or selling them for otherwise exploiting them.

5. Rights of data subjects
Under Art. 15 to 22 GDPR, you have the rights of access, rectification, erasure, restriction of processing and data portability. In addition, you may object to data processing which is based on legitimate interests of the controller or those of third parties.
