3. General Notes and Compulsory Information

Data Privacy

The operators of these website take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data as confidential and in accordance with the statutory data protection regulations and this data privacy statement.

If you are using this website, different personal data will be collected. Personal data are data by which you can be personally identified. The data privacy statement on hand explains which data we collect and what we use them for. It also explains how and for which purpose this is done.

We would like to point out that data transmission via the Internet (e.g. during e-mail communication) may involve security gaps. A complete protection of the data against third party access is not possible.

Note on the Responsible Body

The responsible body for data processing on this website is:

Sima GmbH
Anton-Tonoli-Str. 3
D-77790 Steinach

Phone: +49 (0)7832 97530-0
E-Mail: info@sima-handel.com

The responsible body is the natural or legal person who, alone or together with others, decides on the purposes and means of processing personal data (e.g. names, e-mail addresses or similar).

Storage Period

If no more specific storage period is mentioned in this data privacy statement, your personal data remain with us until the purpose for data processing ceases to exist. If you plead a legitimate request for deletion or revoke a data processing consent, your data shall be deleted unless we have no other legally permissible reasons for storing your personal data (e.g. record retention periods in accordance with fiscal and commercial law); in the latter case, the data shall be deleted when these reasons cease to exist.

Revocation of your Consent to Data Processing

Many data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. You can revoke the consent you have already given at any time. The legitimacy of data processing that has already occurred up to the time of revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

Right of objection against data collection in special cases and against direct advertising (Art. 21 GDPR)

IF DATA PROCESSING TAKES PLACE ON THE BASIS OF ART. 6 PARA. 1 LIT. E OR F GDPR, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT AT ANY TIME, FOR REASONS RESULTING FROM YOUR SPECIFIC SITUATION, TO OBJECT AGAINST PROCESSING OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA; THIS ALSO APPLIES TO PROFILING BASED ON THESE PROVISIONS. THE RESPECTIVE LEGAL FOUNDATION ON WHICH PROCESSING IS BASED CAN BE GATHERED FROM THIS DATA PRIVACY STATEMENT. IF YOU LODGE AN OBJECTION WE SHALL NO LONGER PROCESS YOUR PERSONAL DATA CONCERNED, UNLESS WE CAN DEMONSTRATE COMPULSORY LEGITIMATE GROUNDS FOR PROCESSING WHICH OUTWEIGH YOUR INTERESTS, RIGHTS AND LIBERTIES OR UNLESS PROCESSING SERVES THE ASSERTION, EXECUTION OR DEFENCE OF LEGAL CLAIMS (OBJECTION ACC. TO ART. 21 ABS. 1 GDPR).

IF YOUR PERSONAL DATA ARE PROCESSED FOR THE PURPOSE OF DIRECT ADVERTISING YOU HAVE THE RIGHT AT ANY TIME TO OBJECT AGAINST PROCESSING OF PERSONAL DATA RELATING TO YOU FOR THE PURPOSES OF SUCH ADVERTISING; THIS ALSO APPLIES TO PROFILING PROVIDED IT IS CONNECTED TO SUCH DIRECT ADVERTISING. IF YOU OBJECT, YOUR PERSONAL DATA SHALL SUBSEQUENTLY NO LONGER BE USED FOR THE PURPOSES OF DIRECT ADVERTISING (OBJECTION ACC: TO ART. 21 ABS. 2 GDPR).

Right of Appeal to the Competent Supervisory Authority

In the event of infringements of the GDPR, the persons concerned have a right of appeal to a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of their habitual residence, place of work or the place of the presumed infringement. The right of appeal is without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy.

Right to Data Transferability

You have the right to have data, which we process in an automated manner on the basis of your consent or in fulfilment of a contract, handed out to you or a third party in a common, machine-readable format. In the event that you demand the direct transmission of the data to another responsible party, this shall only be done provided it is technically feasible.

SSL or TLS Encoding

For safety reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content such as purchase orders or requests, which you send to us as the website operator, this website uses SSL or TLS encoding. An encoded connection can be recognised by the address line of the browser changing from “http://” to “https://” and by the lock symbol in your browser line.

If SSL or TLS encoding is enabled, data that you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.

Information, Deletion and Correction

Within the scope of the applicable legal provisions you have the right at any time to receive information at no charge about your stored personal data, their origin and recipients and the purpose of data processing and, where applicable, a right to have these data corrected or deleted. Should you have any questions relating to this topic or to the topic of personal data, you can contact us at any time.

Right to Restriction of Processing

You have the right to request that processing of your personal data be restricted. Should you have any questions relating to this topic, you can contact us at any time. The right to restriction of processing exists in the following cases:

  • If you dispute the correctness of your personal data stored by us, we normally require some time to review this claim. You have the right to request that processing of your personal data be restricted for the duration of the review.
  • If processing of your personal data has or is being done on an illegal basis, you can request that processing of data be restricted instead of the data being deleted.
  • If we no longer require your personal data, but you require them in order to execute, defend or assert legal claims, you have the right to request that processing of your personal data be restricted instead of the data being deleted.
  • If you have raised an objection acc. to Art. 21 para. 1 GDPR, a balance must be struck between your interests and ours. As long as it has not yet been determined whose interests prevail, you have the right to request that processing of your personal data be restricted.

If you have requested that processing of your personal data be restricted, these data may – apart from their storage – only be processed with your consent or in order to assert, execute or defend legal claims or to protect the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of substantial public interest of the European Union or a Member State.

Objection to the receipt of commercial e-mails

The use of contact data published within the framework of the compulsory legal notice for the transmission of advertising and information material not expressly requested is herewith objected to. The operators of the website expressly reserve the right to take legal action in the event of the unsolicited sending of advertising information, for example by spam e-mails.

4. Data Collection on this Website

Server log files

The provider of the website automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:

  • Browser type and browser version
  • vOperating system used
  • Referrer URL
  • Host name of the accessing computer
  • Time of the server enquiry
  • IP address

These data shall not be collated with other data sources.

These data are collected on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the technically faultless representation and optimisation of its website – for this purpose the server log files need to be recorded.

Enquiry by e-mail, telephone or telefax

If you contact us by e-mail, telephone or telefax, your enquiry including all personal data arising from it (name, enquiry) shall be stored and processed for the purpose of processing your request. We shall not pass on these data without your consent.

These data are processed on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR, provided your request is associated with the fulfilment of a contract or is necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures. In all other cases, processing is based on our legitimate interest in the effective processing of enquiries directed to us (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR) or on your consent (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR), provided it has been requested.

Data transmitted to us per contact requests remain with us until you request their deletion, revoke your consent to their storage or until the purpose for the data storage ceases to exist (e.g. once processing of your request has been completed). Compulsory statutory provisions – in particular statutory record retention periods – remain unaffected.

5. Plug-ins and Tools

Google web fonts (local hosting)

We use the map service of OpenStreetMap (OSM). Provider is the Open-Street-Map Foundation (OSMF), 132 Maney Hill Road, Sutton Coldfield, West Midlands, B72 1JU, United Kingdom.

If you visit a website into which OpenStreetMap is incorporated, your IP-address and other information regarding your behaviour on this website will among others be transmitted to OSMF. For this purpose, OpenStreetMap possibly saves cookies in your browser or uses comparable recognition technologies.

In addition, your location can be recorded if you have consented to this in your device settings, for instance on your mobile phone. The provider of this website has no influence on this data transmission. Details can be gathered from the data privacy statement of OpenStreetMap under the following link: https://wiki.osmfoundation.org/wiki/Privacy_Policy.

OpenStreetMap is used in the interest of an appealing presentation of our online offers and to make it easy to find the places we have indicated on the website. This constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. If a corresponding consent was requested (e.g. consent to storage of cookies), processing exclusively takes place on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR; the consent can be revoked at any time.
