FLEXA TAKES THE PROTECTION OF YOUR DATA HIGHLY SERIOUSLY!
We at FLEXA are opting for an online environment which is easy to handle and which takes the rights and the expectations of our customers and of the visitors of the FLEXA website into consideration. These Data Protection Guidelines are to describe how FLEXA collects, uses, and protects the data you reveal when you visit our website and use its functions.
Need for personal data
Personal data is not required when you intend to visit any public part of our website. However, there are certain parts of our website which request personal data from you. If you wish to retain personal data when the system explicitly requests such data, the following situations may occur:
- You will not get access to certain parts of our website
- The system will not be capable of processing your order
- We will not be able to register your interest in our FLEXA products
- You may not receive requested information, and
- We will not be able to contact you.
We collect two different types of data from you:
- Data you enter
- Data which is collected automatically (cookies) when a visitor enters our website.
Data provided by you
We may ask you to input certain data on registration forms or on other online forms if you wish to contact us through our website.
FLEXA also uses common commercial technology, known as “cookies“, to collect data on how the visitor uses the website and to make sure the visitor’s visit to our website runs smoothly. Our cookies do neither reveal nor contain any personal data. Also, the cookies do not read out any information contained on the visitor’s computer or interact with other cookies on the visitor’s hard disk. However, the cookies allow us to recognize you when you visit our website again subsequently.
If you do not wish that your browser accepts any cookies, you can de-activate this function in your browser settings.
If the cookie function has been de-activated, the FLEXA website will not work to its full extent, and you may not be able to read all information contained on our website or to use all its functional options.
Furthermore, you can prevent the capture of data generated by the cookie as well as data that refers to your use of the website (incl. your IP address) to be sent to Google and be processed by Google, by downloading and installing the available browser plug-in, which is available at the following link http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.
Communication via e-mail
As our common means of communication with our customers, we use e-mail for our services or in connection with the purchase of FLEXA products. In such cases, we will save your e-mail address in our computer system.
Usage of data
We assure you that we will use your personal data only
- to improve our ability to serve you when you have a query or a request
- to contact you upon your request, and
- to market our products and services.
Data is exchanged only if required to execute your order, to supply the ordered products, to render our services, or to deal with an enquiry. We will not pass on any personal data unless we are legally obliged to do so.
Our policy commits us not to reveal any personal data on the visitor to our website or on the user of our website unless we have received an explicit permission from the particular visitor or user. We do not sell any user names or e-mail addresses to other companies which will then send you unsolicited advertisement material or any mail.
The ads of third parties or the links to other websites placed on our website may collect user-specific data when clicked on or if corresponding stated instructions are followed. We do not have any control of the data collected in a voluntary or compulsory way through ads or websites operated by a third party. We may therefore recommend visiting the data protection guidelines of the particular advertised websites if you have any reservation concerning the collection and the usage of your data by the operator of such ads and websites.
Delete | Deactivation Option
Currently the FLEXA website does not allow users to delete their personal data sustainably from our database or to de-activate such data, but we are certainly prepared to do so upon explicit request. So if you wish to delete your personal data from our database, if you wish to de-activate such data, or if wish your name to be deleted from a mailing list, please send us an e-mail or give us a call:
Phone: +49 6181 677-0
Security and encryption
FLEXA protects the collected customer data by saving the data on servers which are protected by firewalls and with passwords. The servers use encryption technology against unauthorized access. If we receive any data while our website is being visited, such data is transferred by means of SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encryption technology. The website is certified by Verisign.
We may call upon you to arrange for any protective measure you can take to protect and to secure your personal data while being online. Please change your password(s) frequently, using a combination of letters and numbers, and please make sure that you use a secure browser while surfing the internet.
This website contains links to other websites. Some of these other websites also use FLEXA logos and brands and may therefore look like websites operated by FLEXA, whereas they are operated by a third party (even though with a permission by FLEXA). This fact should be stated on the internet site concerned accordingly. FLEXA does not have any control of the contents or of the operation of such websites operated by a third party and is not responsible for any information contained on such websites. Furthermore, FLEXA cannot be held responsible for the non-execution of orders placed on such websites nor for the non-provision of services ordered via such websites. Finally, FLEXA cannot be held responsible for the data protection guidelines effective for such websites or for the data explicitly or automatically collected through such websites. If you face any difficulties or any problems in connection with the websites operated by a third party, please contact the particular third party directly.
The websites operated by selected third parties and appearing as FLEXA websites will share the data collected from the visitor with FLEXA. The information FLEXA receives via such websites will be processed in compliance with these Data Protection Guidelines and with the relevant legal data protection acts.
We may encourage all our visitors and users to familiarize with these terms.
