Privacy Policy

 

We are pleased about your interest in the Schaeffler Group (Schaeffler AG and affiliated companies) and our products. The protection of your privacy when using our online offer is very important for us. If personal data is processed, we observe the applicable data protection laws.

 

 

I.  General information about data processing

 

1.  Scope and purpose of processing of personal data

In principle, we collect and use your personal data only insofar as it is necessary to provide a functional website as well as our content and services offered on the website. Your personal data is regularly collected and used only after your consent. An exception to this applies in cases where the processing of the data is permitted by law.

 

2.  Legal basis for data processing

Processing of your personal data is based on the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG).

If you have given your consent to the processing of personal data for specific purposes, the legal basis for processing of personal data is Art. 6 (1)(a)GDPR. You can withdraw your consent at any time. Please remember that the withdrawal is only effective for the future. Processing based on consent before its withdrawal is not affected.

Processing of personal data in the context of the performance of a contract to which you are a party or in order to take steps prior to entering a contract at your request is based on Art. 6 (1)(b)GDPR. The purposes of data processing are governed by the respective contract documents and the subject matter of the contract.

If processing of personal data is necessary to comply with a legal obligation to which we are subject, Art. 6 (1)(c)GDPR serves as a legal basis.

If processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by Schaeffler or by a third party (e.g. to establish or defend legal claims; to ensure IT security; to prevent crimes; to conduct business and to further develop services and products) and if your interests, fundamental rights and freedoms as data subject do not override the aforementioned interest, Art. 6 (1)(f)GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing.

 

3.  Data erasure and retention period

We process and store your personal data for as long as this is necessary to satisfy the respective purpose. In addition, such storage may take place in order to comply with a legal obligation by Union or Member State law, regulation or other provision to which we as controller are subject. If the data is no longer necessary or if a retention period prescribed by the aforementioned laws has expired, your data will be erased on a regular basis.

 

4. Access to personal data within the Schaeffler Group and by third parties

Within the Schaeffler Group, those entities gain access to your data who require it as a part of “least privilege” (assignment of user rights to the lowest possible extent) and the “need-to-know” principle (knowledge of data only if necessary).

We may only transfer data to third parties outside the Schaeffler Group if this is necessary, if statutory provision so requires, if you have given your consent or if any commissioned processors have agreed to comply with the requirements of the GDPR and the BDSG.

 

Under these conditions, recipients of personal data may be: competent internal specialist departments and external service providers, if necessary.

 

5. Transfer of personal data to a third country or to an international organisation

A transfer of data to countries outside the EU/EEA (so-called third countries) will only take place as it is necessary or required by law, you have given your consent or as part of data processing by a processor. If service providers in third countries are deployed, in addition to written instructions, they are required to comply with data protection standards in Europe by agreeing on the EU standard contractual clauses.

 

6. IT security and links to third party websites

The Schaeffler Group uses technical and organisational security measures to protect your data that we manage against accidental or intentional destruction, manipulation, loss or access by unauthorised persons. These safeguards are constantly being developed in accordance with the respective new technical possibilities.

 

Our websites may contain links to the websites of other providers. Our Privacy Policy does not apply to these websites.

 

7. Obligation to provide personal data

While entering into a contract, you must provide the personal data that is necessary to establish, implement and terminate the contract and to satisfy the resulting duties or that Schaeffler must collect due to legal provisions. Without these data no contract with Schaeffler can be concluded.

 

If we provide you with offers and services on this website that you can voluntarily use, there is no duty to provide your data to us, but without your personal data, you may not be able to use our offers and services.

 

8. “Profiling” and automated decision-making

We do not use fully automated decision-making pursuant to Art. 22 GDPR. Schaeffler basically does not use “profiling”. If we use it in individual cases, we will inform you about this separately, if it is required by law and – if necessary - obtain your prior consent.

 

9. Sources of your personal data

We use data that we receive from you.

 

 

II.  Data processing for the provision of the website and the creation of log files

 

By default, when you visit our website, our web servers obtain and collect the name of your Internet service provider, your IP address, the website from which you are visiting us, the websites you visit on our website, and the date and duration of the visit. This data is stored in the log files of our systems. However, the use of the IP address is limited to the technically necessary extent and is abbreviated and therefore used only anonymously, so that it is not possible to assign the IP address to a user. The data is not merged with personal data.

 

The legal basis for the temporary storage of data is Art. 6 (1)(f)GDPR.

 

The temporary storage of the abbreviated IP address by our systems is technically necessary to display the website to your terminal device. Storage in log files is done to ensure the functionality of the website. Data is not being analysed for marketing purposes in this context. For these purposes, we have legitimate interest in processing of data according to Art. 6 (1)(f)GDPR.

 

The collection of data for the provision of the website and the storage of data in log files is essential for the operation of the website. Therefore, there is no possibility for you as a user to object to such processing.

 

 

III.  Data processing in respect of services offered on the website

 

On our website various services are offered, for the use of which we request personal data from you. In this context, it is always optional for you to provide us with personal data.

We want to provide you with as individual offers as possible. We would like to use the information about your user behaviour that you provide and generate automatically when you visit our website in order to create advertising tailored to you and your interests. For this purposes, we request your separate consent to the creation of a personalised user profile.

 

In the user profile, we store the personal data you have provided us while registering for the “Schaeffler Info Service” together with data about your movement on this website and/or in the information and advertising communication we have sent to you. Movement data is information about your user behaviour, e.g. which columns, articles and content you access on this website or in our newsletter, and at which time, including receipt and read confirmations of e-mails and newsletters.

 

We analyse this usage profile exclusively to send you individually customised information and advertising, provided that we have obtained your separate consent to the use of data for information and advertising purposes due to your registration for the “Schaeffler Info-Service”.
