Data protection declaration

The protection of your personal data is of the highest priority for AMAZONE. All data are treated confidentially according to legal regulations (e.g. Telemedia-law, federal data protection law).

We therefore would like to explain here how we implement the data protection act for our internet sites.

1. What data does AMAZONE access?
With the access, processing and utilisation of personal related data we aim to make available to our users a user-friendly, efficient and safe platform.

As a matter of principle you can visit our websites without informing us of any personal related data. In case of a decision to utilise a further service (e.g. Info, RMA or spare parts portal) you need to register and to therefore transfer accordingly further data. This will be your address and contact data and possibly additional information, provided these are asked for by AMAZONE. This data is called inventory data.

Wherever possible we give you the opportunity to make your own decision as to whether you want to give out this data. At the point of registration you also choose a suitable user name and a password.
On top of this your computer automatically transmits to AMAZONE information such as an IP-address, browser-type, and the period of access when you are using the websites. We also store this information anonymously. This helps us to better understand user behaviour. 

 2. What are Cookies? 
On various pages we use so-called cookies. They serve to make our site more user-friendly, more effective and safer. Cookies are small information units which are filed on your computer and which your browser remembers. Most of the cookies we use are so-called "session-cookies" and at the end of your AMAZONE visit they are automatically erased from your hard disk.  Other cookies remain on your computer so that AMAZONE recognises that computer again on your next visit.

You can adjust your browser in such a way that it informs you prior to the acceptance of a cookie or does not accept any more cookies. Particular functions are only available if you accept the use of function-related cookies. 

3.  How does AMAZONE make use of your data?
We make use of your personal related data in order to enable you to utilise AMAZONE services in a safe, effective and customer-related manner. 
With the aid of this information it is then, amongst other permutations, possible
- that only information tailored for you is rendered
- that information closed to others is available to you .

4. Does AMAZONE pass on your data to others?
The data may be passed on to third parties if this is necessary for the processing of an order given by you. So, for example, in cases where a postal delivery is required, we will pass on the necessary address details to the delivery service.

5. Dealing with e-mail addresses
When you send us an e-mail via the contact us form we use your e-mail address only for any correspondence with you.  Naturally then this will not be passed on to third parties.

6. Newsletter
Subject to having given your approval, you will receive from a regular newsletter which enables us to keep you informed of in-house news from AMAZONE. By clicking on the relevant link at the end of this electronic newsletter, you can unsubscribe from receiving any future e-news at any time. You can also revoke this approval at any time in the future by e-mailing: newsletter(at)amazone(dot)de.
We send our newsletters via the CleverReach newsletter service (Cleverreach GmbH & Co. KG, Mühlenstr. 43, 26180 Rastede, Deutschland). Cleverreach is a member of the Certified Senders Alliance. We pass on your surname, christian name, title, street, post code, county, country and profession (all if specified) and e-mail address to CleverReach exclusively for the purpose of mailing our newsletter to you. Your data will be stored by CleverReach in such a way that other customers of CleverReach or wider third parties do not have access to this data. Additional information can be found in the Data Protection Declaration from CleverReach.

7. Deletion of your data
We only store your personal data for as long as it is required for use by this task. For instance, your data will be erased when you unsubscribe from our newsletter mailing. Anything else only applies when legal, statutory or contractual retention obligations prevent its cancellation or when its retention is required for processing a contractual relationship with you or for other account purposes.

8. Other rights of reserve the right to make use of personal information in such a way as to retain or disclose them as is legally imperative, for instance for the appropriate following up of users' complaints or possible infringements of law, to protect the integrity of the website, to answer your enquiries or, for example, to assist in legally-binding, necessary governmental investigations due to law infringement.

9.  Export and processing of data in countries outside the European economic zone
Only the anonymous data from your visit to our website will be processed by  Google Inc., USA, via the "Google Analytics" web analysis service.

10.  Google Analytics
This website utilises Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc., USA ("Google"). Google Analytics utilises cookies, which enable the analysis of the visit to our website by you. Any information created by the cookie during your visit (including your IP-address) is transmitted to a server of Google in USA and stored there. Google will make use of this information to analyse your utilisation of the website, to compile reports on the website activities for website operators and to provide additional services connected with website and internet utilisation. Google will possibly also pass on this information to third parties provided that this has been stipulated by law or, in respect to third parties, process this data on the request of Google. Google ensures that your IP address is not related to any other data obtained Google. By the utilisation of this or any other AMAZONE website you declare that you agree that Google processes your data in the manner described above and only for the previously mentioned purpose. 
If you do not agree you can hinder the installation of these cookies by a relevant adjustment of your browser. In this case, however, you will possibly not be able to fully make use of all the functions that this or another website from AMAZONE offers.

11.  External links 
For your optimum information you will find on our pages links that refer to web pages of third parties. Unless not obviously apparent, we endeavour to inform you that this is an external link. AMAZONE has no influence on the contents and the layout of these pages from other providers. Therefore, the guarantees implied by the implementation of the data protection act is, of course, here not valid. 

12.  Additional information and contacts
We reserve the right to change this declaration at any time. It does not justify any contractual or other formal right or by order of a party. 
Safety precaution: We cannot guarantee full data safety at communications via e-mail. Therefore we recommend to send confidential information by post.
