Privacy.

Privacy statement.

You can visit our websites without giving any information about yourself. Our website partially stores personal information or personal data about users. The Act defines such personal data as information about the personal and factual circumstances of a certain or identifiable natural person (§ 3 (1) of the Federal Data Protection Act). These include, for example, the name, the address, e-mail, or telephone number. Most of the time, the IP address, which is assigned to each computer individually by a provider, is also considered personal data. Not personally identifiable data is information that cannot be used to identify you (anonymous data), such as the mere statement of age or sex without reference to your person.

Storage of data through our website/server data
Our website will initially automatically store (i.e. not via a registration) general information that is not used in personalized context, via so-called server log files. The used web servers and statistics programs stores for example:

  • browser type/version
  • operating system used
  • the previously visited page (Refferer URL)
  • hostname of the accessing computer (IP address)
  • time of the server request.

This information is stored exclusively for the purpose of technical administration of our website. A transfer to third parties does not take place. These anonymous data are stored separately from any personal data that you may provide and so do not allow any conclusions to be drawn from a particular person. They are evaluated for statistical purposes in order to optimize our internet presence and our offers.

Data storage through your information
Our website also actively collects information from you, for example when you enter information in our contact form or sign up for our newsletter. Of course, this information will only be used to carry out the services we offer. The data will not be forwarded to servers outside the EU.

The following regulations inform you in this respect about the type, scope and purpose of the collection, use and processing of personal data by the provider

We point out that Internet-based data transmission can have security gaps so that complete protection against access by third parties is not 100% possible.

Storage
We store your personal information after the end of the purpose for which the data was collected, only as long as required by legal regulations (in particular e.g. tax regulations).

Purpose
In general, we will use the personal data you provide to respond to your requests, process your orders, handle contracts with you, or provide you with access to specific information or offers. If we receive your e-mail address in connection with the sale of a product or service and you have not objected to it, we reserve the right to send you regular offers on related products, such as those already purchased, from our assortment by e-mail.

Sharing your information
We will not disclose, sell or otherwise market your personal data to third parties without your consent or instruction.

You may object to the use of your e-mail address at any time by sending a message to the contact option described below, without incurring any costs other than the transmission costs according to the basic rates.

Of course, we respect it, if you do not want us to use your personal data in support of our customer relationship. If you do not wish to do so, you may revoke your consent to use your personal data to the below-mentioned contact at any time with future effect.

Purpose-bound use
Hiltl will collect, process and use the personal data you provide online only for the purposes communicated to you, unless the collection, processing or use

  • for a further purpose directly related to the original purpose for which the personal data was collected, 
  • is required for the preparation, negotiation and fulfilment of a contract with you,
  • is required on the basis of a legal obligation or official or court order,
  • is necessary for the justification or protection of legal claims or to avert lawsuits,
  • to prevent abuse or other unlawful activities, e.g. intentional attacks on the computer systems and to ensure data security.

In order to receive our newsletter, you need a valid e-mail address. We will check the email address you have entered to verify that you are the owner of the specified email address or whose owner is authorized to receive the newsletter. By registering for our newsletter, we will save your IP address and the date and time of your registration. This is in the event that a third party abuses your e-mail address and subscribes to our newsletter without your knowledge, as a safeguard on our part. Further data will not be collected on our part. The data collected in this way will be used exclusively to obtain our newsletter. A transfer to third parties does not take place.

It is also not possible to compare the data collected with data that may be collected by other components of our site.

Comment option
We offer you the opportunity to leave comments on the individual contributions on our site. This saves the IP address of the author/subscriber. This storage is for our safety in the event that the author is interfering with the rights of third parties with the comment and/or illegal content is displaced. Thus, there is a self-interest on our part of the stored data of the author, especially since we may be prosecuted for such violations. A transfer to third parties does not take place. It is also not possible to compare the data collected with data that may be collected by other components of our site.

Use of Google Analytics with anonymization function
We use Google-Analytics, a Web Analytics service from the company Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereinafter "Google". Google Analytics uses so-called "cookies", text files that are stored on your computer and allow you to analyse the use of the website. The information generated by these cookies, such as the time, location and frequency of your website visit, including your IP address, will be transferred to Google in the United States and stored there.
We use Google Analytics on our website with an IP anonymization feature. In this case, your IP address will already be shortened and thus anonymized by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area.
Google will use this information to evaluate your use of our site, to compile reports on our website activity, and to provide other services related to website activity and internet usage. Google may also transfer this information to third parties if required by law or as far as third parties process this data on behalf of Google.
According to the company's own information, Google does not claim to link your IP address to any other data provided by Google. You can prevent the installation of cookies by setting your browser software accordingly (see notes above); however, we point out that in this case, you may not be able to fully use all functions of our website.
In addition, Google offers a deactivation option for the most popular browsers, giving you more control over what data is collected and processed by Google. If you select this option, no site visit information will be sent to Google Analytics. Activation does not prevent, however, that information is transmitted to us or to other web analytics services that we may have used. For more information about the disabling option provided by Google and how to enable this option, please follow the link below: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.
Google's privacy policy is available at http://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/. For more information about Terms of Use and Privacy, please visit http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/us.html or http://www.google.com/intl/de/analytics/privacyoverview.html. We point out that on this website Google Analytics has been extended by the code "anonymizeIp" to ensure an anonymized collection of IP addresses (so-called IP-Masking).

Use of Google + referral components
On our website, we use the "+ 1" button of the provider Google + the company Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereinafter "Google". Each time you access our website, which is equipped with such a "+ 1" component, this component causes the browser you are using to download a corresponding representation of the component from Google. This process will inform Google about which specific page of our internet presence is currently being visited.
According to Google, your visit will not be further evaluated in the event that you are not logged in to your Google Account. When you visit our site and you're logged into Google, when you confirm the "+1" button, Google may collect information about your Google Account, the website you recommend, your IP address, and other browser-related information.
This way your "+ 1" referral can be saved and made publicly available. Your Google "+ 1" referral may then be added as a note along with your account name and, if applicable, your Google-stored photo in Google services, such as search results or your Google account, or in any other place, such as websites and ads on the Internet. In addition, Google may link your visit to our site to your data stored on Google. Google also records this information to further improve Google's services. If you want to prevent the aforementioned collection by Google as best as possible, you must log out before visiting our website from your Google Account.
You can access Google's privacy policy regarding the "+1" button with all other information about Google's collection, disclosure and use of data, your related rights, and profile setting options here: https://developers.google.com/+/web/buttons-policy

Use of Facebook components
On our website, we use components of the provider facebook.com. Facebook is a service of Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA. Each time you access our website, which is equipped with such a component, this component causes the browser you are using to download a corresponding representation of the component from Facebook. Through this process, Facebook is informed about which specific page of our internet presence is being visited by you.
If you visit our page and you are logged in to Facebook, Facebook recognizes via the information collected by the component which specific page you are visiting and assigns this information to your personal account on Facebook. E.g. if you click the "Like" button or post corresponding comments, this information will be transmitted to your personal account on Facebook and stored there. In addition, the information that you have visited our site is passed on to Facebook. This happens regardless of whether you click the component or not.
If you want to prevent this transmission and storage of data about you and your behaviour on our website through Facebook, you have to log out of Facebook before you visit our site. Facebook's privacy notices provide further information, in particular regarding the collection and use of the data by Facebook, about your rights in this regard as well as the setting options for protecting your privacy: https://de-de.facebook.com/about/privacy/ 
An overview of the Facebook plug-ins can be found at: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/

Use of XING referral components
We use components of the network XING.com on our site. These components are a service of Xing AG, Dammtor Straße 29-32, 20354 Hamburg, Germany.
Each time you access our website, which is equipped with such a component, this component causes the browser you are using to download a corresponding representation of the component of Xing. To the best of our knowledge, Xing does not store any personal data of the user via the call to our website. Likewise, XING does not store IP addresses. Furthermore, there is no evaluation of the behaviour of use via the use of cookies in connection with the "XING share button". Further information can be found in the privacy policy for the XING share button at: https://www.xing.com/app/share?op=data_protection

Use of LinkedIn referral components
We use the components of the LinkedIn network on our site. LinkedIn is a service of the LinkedIn Corporation, 2029 Stierlin Court, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Each time you visit our website that has such a component, this component causes the browser you are using to download a corresponding representation of the LinkedIn component.
This process will inform LinkedIn about which specific page of our internet presence is currently being visited. If you click the LinkedIn "Recommend button" while logged in to your LinkedIn account, you can link the contents of our pages to your LinkedIn profile. As a result, LinkedIn is able to associate your visit to our pages with your LinkedIn user account.
We have no control over the information that LinkedIn collects or the extent of the information collected by LinkedIn. We also have no knowledge of the content of the data submitted to LinkedIn. For details on LinkedIn data collection and your rights and settings, please refer to LinkedIn's privacy policy. These notes can be found at http://www.linkedin.com/legal/privacy-policy

Use of Instagram
We use the Instagram service on our website. Instagram is a service of Instagram Inc. With the integrated "Insta" button on our site, Instagram receives the information that you have accessed the corresponding page of our website. If you are logged in to Instagram, Instagram can assign this visit on our page to your Instagram account and thus link the data. The data transmitted by clicking on the "Insta" button are saved by Instagram.

Publication of job advertisements/online job applications
Your application data will be electronically collected and processed by us for the purpose of handling the application process. If your application is followed by the conclusion of a contract of employment, your transmitted data may be stored by us in your personnel file for the purpose of the usual organizational and administrative process, in particular, the performance of the employment relationship in compliance with the relevant legal regulations.
The deletion of your submitted data within the framework of the application procedure will be carried out automatically within two months after notification that your application for employment was unsuccessful. This does not apply if, due to legal requirements (for example, the obligation of proof according to the General Equal Treatment Act) a longer storage is necessary or if you have expressly consented to a longer storage in our prospect database.
