Data Protection

Through the website and the software, ALLIGATOR Ventilfabrik GmbH offers its contractual partners an extensive service. In this respect, the company management and the staff members place particular value to the confidential and safe handling of your personal data and data of your company.

The following declaration of data protection shall be the basis for our actions and part of the business relationship with customers, interested and third parties.

1.   Data on the homepage
On the website, your personal data shall be collected and processed to various extent and in different ways.
In addition, data are collected by the provider of the homepage, on which ALLIGATOR has no influence, however. The stipulations of the following points shall be applicable for the collection, processing and use of your personal data.
Personal data shall be considered individual data on personal or factual conditions of a certain or determinable natural person, which provide information on the behaviour or characters. This information shall include name, address, telephone or facsimile number, e-mail address, but also data on personal interest if these data can be associated to you personally in a direct or indirect manner.

2.   Cookies
Cookies are small text files which are stored on your hard disk temporarily. For technical reasons, cookies are used in parts with us not being able to inform you in detail. In this case your IP address only is saved. Cookies permit a more comfortable access to the offer. If you do not want us to recognise your company and you prefer to enter your personal data anew each time, you can deactivate the storage of cookies in your browser or you can be informed as soon as cookies are sent.

3.   Analysing tools
ALLIGATOR uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. ('Google'). Google Analytics uses so-called 'cookies'. Cookies are text files that are stored on your computer which enable an analysis of your use of the website. The information about your use of this website (including your IP address) generated by the cookie is transmitted to and stored on a Google server in the USA. Google will use this information on order to evaluate your use of the website in order to compile reports about the website activity for the website operator and in order to provide services associated with the use of the website and internet. Google will also transfer this information to third parties, if applicable, insofar as this is required by law or to the extent that the third parties process this data on behalf of Google. Google will never associate your IP address with other Google data. You can prevent the installation of cookies with an appropriate setting in your browser software; however, please be aware that you may not be able to fully utilise the full functionality of this website in this case. By using this website, you declare your consent to the processing of the data relating to you which has been collected in the manner described above and for the aforementioned purpose.

4.   Software
On the website ALLIGATOR offers you the download of software. The software shall be required for the use of the hardware. In order to be able to use the software correctly, it is necessary to enter personal data. This shall include username, company, password, country and language. The data collected, processed and employed for the use of the hardware and software shall be hosted at the computer centre of ALLIGATOR. The computer centre of ALLIGATOR shall be inspected in conformity with Section (11) of the German Federal Data Protection Act and shall be contractually obligated. ALLIGATOR shall collect, process and employ the data only within the framework of the contract. If you cannot change your personal data in the software yourself, please send potential change requests by post, facsimile or e-mail to the contact data mentioned below. In this case ALLIGATOR will carry out the changes for you and will send you a confirmation.

5.   Links and contents on page of third parties
The website shall provide links to offers of third parties. ALLIGATOR cannot assume any liability for these websites and the respective handling of personal data.
Liability note: in its judgement of 12th May 1998, the Regional Court of Hamburg has decided that by including a link a certain responsibility for the content of the linked page applies, where applicable. According to the Regional Court this can be prevented only by explicitly distancing oneself from the contents. On its website, ALLIGATOR has included links to other websites on the Internet. The following shall apply for all these links: ALLIGATOR declares explicitly that ALLIGATOR has not influence on the design and the contents of the websites linked. For this reason, ALLIGATOR distances itself explicitly from all contents of the websites linked and shall not make such contents its own. This declaration shall apply for all links indicated on the website and for all contents of websites to which banners, buttons and links lead that have been clearly included by ALLIGATOR.

6.   Contact data
You can enter the contact data on the website. The personal-related data shall be entered voluntarily. Basically ALLIGATOR has taken all technical and organisational measures to keep these data safe as well. As transmission is not always encrypted, ALLIGATOR cannot guarantee the safety of data.For this reason, be very careful with your information and do not transmit any sensitive data, such as your bank details, with the contact form.

7.   Newsletter
ALLIGATOR informs its customers via newsletter. The processing of data takes place within the scope of statutory and contractual specifications. Service providers are audited and bound in accordance with Article 11 of the German Federal Data Protection Act.

8.   Transmission of data to third parties
A transmission shall be carried out only within the framework of order processing. In these cases only to trustworthy partners of ALLIGATOR. In conformity with Section (11) of the German Federal Data Protection Act, these partners are obligated to secrecy by contract. Data shall not be passed on to further third parties as a matter of principle; potential exceptions are ruled in the points mentioned hereinbefore. In particular, transmission shall not be carried out for commercial purposes (address trading).

9.   Safety instruction
ALLIGATOR shall do everything to protect your personal data from unauthorised access and misuse by using suitable technical and organisational measures. Please note that during communication by e-mail data safety on the Internet cannot be ensured, and that ALLIGATOR recommends dispatch through the post for confidential information.

10.       Right to information
Of course, you have the right to obtain information on the data ALLIGATOR has saved on you, their origin, the reason for saving and the potential other recipients of the data.
In order to provide you with this information as quickly and completely as possible, please send an e-mail to our data protection officer rendering data on yourself as detailed as possible and on your request for information.
