Contact and registration forms
In addition, we only collect personal data (e.g. names, addresses, telephone numbers or e-mail addresses) in connection with the operation of our websites if you voluntarily provide us with such data (e.g. through contact inquiries, registration for events, surveys, etc.) and if we are entitled to process or use such data on the basis of your consent or on the basis of statutory regulations.
We only use this data for the purpose for which you have provided us with the data, e.g. to answer your inquiries, process your orders or provide you with access to certain information or offers.
Information disclosure
If you have given your consent or we are otherwise legally authorised to do so, we may pass on your personal data to subsidiaries of Donau Chemie (Donauchem, Donau Kanol, Donau Carbon) for the above-mentioned purposes.
Donau Chemie works in connection with the operation of this website and the services provided via the website with service providers, such as service providers for hosting or IT maintenance.
The described recipients may be located in countries outside the European Economic Area ("third countries") where the applicable law does not guarantee the same level of data protection as in your home country. In this case, Donau Chemie will take measures to ensure an adequate level of data protection elsewhere.
The data will only be passed on within the framework of and in compliance with the applicable legal provisions. We will neither sell your personal data to third parties nor market it in any other way.
Legal basis, storage periods
Data processing is carried out on the basis of Art 6 para 1 lit a (consent) and/or lit f (legitimate interest) of the GDPR.
The processed personal data are used for statistical evaluations and for the purpose of operation, security and optimisation of the website (legitimate interest). Any further use of your personal data (e.g. sending newsletters) will only take place with your consent.
If no explicit storage period is specified during the collection (e.g. within the scope of a declaration of consent), your personal data will be deleted insofar as this is no longer necessary to fulfil the purpose of storage and no legal storage obligations (e.g. commercial and tax storage obligations) conflict with this.
