We have implemented technical and organisational measures to ensure that the relevant legal requirements relating to data protection and IT security are observed. This Privacy Statement explains what information we collect and how we use it.
We generally use the personal data we have collected about you to answer your enquiries, process your orders or ensure you have access to specific information or offers. You may be asked to provide us with personal data voluntarily when registering for services, filling in the contact form, etc. We do not share these data with third parties unless your enquiry, or the service or product you requested, explicitly provides for this. In this case, you will be informed of this as and when appropriate. If you wish, you can also make personal data available to us via applications embedded in our platform (for example, contact forms or services for which you must open a user account). The terms of service for such applications may differ from the provisions of this Privacy Statement. If so, we will point this out to you explicitly in the context of additional privacy clauses. Art. 6(1) b GDPR serves as the legal basis when processing personal data required for the performance of a contract to which you are a party. The processing of personal data is lawful under Art. 6(1) a of the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) provided we obtain the consent of the data subject to processing activities involving personal data.
Log files and cookies
When you visit our website or download a file, data relating to this activity are stored in a log file on our Internet server. This means that every time you visit our site, data that your browser transmits to us are automatically collected and stored.
This particularly applies to the following data:
• Domain name of the referring site
• Page you visited on our site
• Names of the files you downloaded
• Date and time of the downloads
• Name of your Internet service provider
• Operating system and browser version you are using on your PC, where applicable
• Host name of the accessing computer (IP address)
• Language settings
These data are collected for storage and/or statistical purposes and to help us improve our website. They cannot be associated with a specific person and will not be combined with other data sources unless there is a legal obligation to do so.
A cookie is a small file of letters and numbers that we store on your computer when you browse our website. Cookies help us to provide you with an enhanced experience while browsing and also allow us to improve our site.
Session cookies only remain on your computer for the duration of your visit and are deleted thereafter. Persistent cookies remain stored on your computer until you delete them explicitly; they enable us to recognise your browser the next time you visit our website. Our website also uses third-party cookies, which are set by a domain other than our website when you browse embedded content on our site.
Children should not send us any personal data without the consent of a parent or guardian. We encourage all parents and guardians to instruct their children in the safe and responsible use of their personal data while using the Internet. We do not knowingly collect personal data from children, nor do we process such information in any way or disclose it to third parties without authorisation.
Contact form/blog function
Our website includes a contact form/blog function which you can use to contact us electronically. Alternatively, you can contact us by writing to the email address provided. If you contact us via one of these channels, the personal data transmitted by the data subject will be stored automatically. Such data is stored solely for the purposes of processing and communication with you. We do not share this data with third parties. It is forbidden to use the contact form or the blog for unlawful or punishable acts. Any misdemeanours will be notified by us to the responsible authority for prosecution.
If you subscribe to our email newsletter, the data you provide to us in the entry screen are transmitted to the controller. When you register for the newsletter, we store your IP address as well as the date and the time of your registration. This helps to prevent misuse of the services or of the data subject’s email address. We do not share this data with third parties unless there is a legal obligation to do so.
Your data are used solely for the purposes of sending you the newsletter. The data subject can unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time. You can also withdraw your consent to the storage of personal data at any time. Every newsletter contains a link for this purpose.
Thyssengas takes precautions to ensure the security of your personal data. We take every care to ensure that your data is protected against loss, destruction, falsification, manipulation and unauthorised access or unauthorised disclosure. Data provided to us over the Internet is only partially encrypted. This being so, unauthorised access by third parties cannot be ruled out entirely.
Links to other websites
This website contains links to other websites. As a service provider, we are solely responsible for our own content on these pages. Our own content must be distinguished from the content made available by other providers, for which we cannot assume any responsibility and which we do not adopt as our own. This Privacy Statement therefore does not apply to the websites of other providers, even if they are accessed via links on our website. If you notice any relevant violation, please report it to us. We will remove the link to that site if necessary after checking it.
You have the right to request information regarding personal data stored by us about you at any time and at no cost; you also have the right to object to the processing or use of data about you insofar as this does not defeat the given purpose (for example, a contract). In addition, you may assert rights against us to have your personal data blocked, erased or rectified. Feel free to write an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or send a letter to the address indicated above if you have any questions, comments, criticisms or suggestions regarding data protection and privacy. Without prejudice to any other judicial remedy, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of your habitual residence, place of work or place of the alleged infringement.
Thank you for your attention!
