T., Austria, tel.: +43 50 600-0, fax: +43 50 600-10111, email: privacy@egger.com The body responsible for processing personal data is the individual or legal entity who decides on their own or together with others about the purposes and means of processing personal data.

1.3 For security reasons and to protect the transmission of personal details and other confidential content (e.g. orders or enquiries to the responsible body), this website uses SSL or TLS encryption. You can recognise an encrypted connection by the character string “https://” and the lock symbol on your browser line.

2) Data collection when visiting our website

When using our website purely for information purposes, in other words if you do not register or send us information in any other way, we only collect such data that your browser sends to our server (so-called “server log files”). When you access our website, we collect the following data, which is technically necessary for us to show you the website:

  • Our website visited
  • Date and time at the time of access
  • Amount of data sent in bytes
  • Source/reference from where you came to the page
  • Browser used
  • Operating system used
  • IP address used (possibly in anonymised form)

Data is processed pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 f of the GDPR based on our legitimate interest in improving the stability and functionality of our website. Data is not passed on or used in any other way. We reserve the right, however, to check the server log files retrospectively if there is concrete evidence of unlawful usage.

3) Cookies

To make visiting our website attractive and to enable certain functions to be used, we use so-called cookies on various pages. This involves small text files, which are stored on your computer or other device. Some of the cookies used by us are deleted after the end of the browser session, in other words after closing your browser (so-called session cookies). Other cookies remain on your device and enable us or our partner companies (cookies from third party providers) to recognise your browser the next time you visit (persistent cookies). If cookies are set, these collect and process certain user information to an individual extent, such as browser and location data as well as IP address values. Persistent cookies are automatically deleted after a specified period, which may vary depending on the cookie.

The cookies are sometimes used, by saving settings, to make the ordering process easier (e.g. noting the content of a virtual basket for a later visit to the website). If personal data is also processed using individual cookies implemented by us, this is processed pursuant to either Art. 6 Para. 1 b of the GDPR to execute the agreement or pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 f of the GDPR to safeguard our legitimate interests in the best possible functionality of the website and to make visiting the site effective and customer-friendly.

In some circumstances we work with advertising partners, who help us to make our Internet content more interesting for you. In this case, cookies from partner companies are also saved on your hard drive for this purpose when you visit our website (cookies from third party providers). If we work together with advertising partners, you will be informed individually and separately in the paragraphs below about the application of such cookies and the extent of the information collected in each case.

Please bear in mind that you can set your browser so that you are informed about cookies being set and can decide to accept them individually or exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or in general. Every browser differs in the way it manages the cookie settings. This is described in every browser’s help menu, which explains how you can change your cookie settings.

4) Making contact

When you make contact with us (e.g. using a contact form or by email), personal data is collected. What data is collected in case of a contact form can be seen from the respective contact form. This data is only saved and used for the purpose of answering your concern or for making contact and the technical administration associated with this. The legal basis for processing the data is our legitimate interest in answering your concern pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 f of the GDPR. If, by making contract, your intention is to conclude a contract, then an additional legal basis for processing data is Art. 6 Para. 1 b of the GDPR. Your data is deleted once your enquiry has been handled. This is the case if it can be gathered from the circumstances that the matter in question has been concluded and that there are no statutory retention obligations preventing this.

5) Data processing when opening a customer account (e.g. myEGGER) and for contract handling purposes

In accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 b of the GDPR, personal data will continue to be collected and processed if you give us this to implement a contract or when you open a customer account. What data is collected can be seen from the respective input forms. It is possible to delete your customer account at any time and can be done by sending a message to the above-mentioned address of the responsible body. We save and us the data given by you for contract handling purposes. Once the contract has been fully executed or your customer account has been deleted, your data is blocked in accordance with retention periods under tax and commercial law and deleted at the end of these periods, unless you have expressly consented to continued use of your data or we reserved a right to continue using your data, which is permitted by law and about which we will advise you accordingly below.

6) Using your data for direct advertising

6.1 Signing up to our email newsletter

If you sign up to our email newsletter, we will regularly send you information about our range of products and services. The only mandatory information for sending the newsletter is your email address. Providing any other data is voluntary and such data is used to be able to address you personally. For sending out the newsletter we use the double opt-in procedure. This means that we will only send you an email newsletter if you have expressly confirmed to us that you consent to newsletters being sent. We will then send you a confirmation email asking you to confirm that you want to receive newsletters in future by clicking a corresponding link.

By activating the confirmation link you give us your consent to use your personal data pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 a of the GDPR. When you sign up to the newsletter we save your IP address registered by the Internet Service Provider (ISP) as well as the date and time of signing up in order to be able to track any possible misuse of your email address at a later point in time. The data collected by us when you sign up to the newsletter is used solely for advertising purposes by means of the newsletter. You can unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time by using the link provided in the newsletter or by sending a corresponding message to the responsible body mentioned at the start. Once you have unsubscribed, your email address will be immediately removed from our newsletter distribution list unless you have expressly consented to continued use of your data or we reserved a right to continue using your data, which is permitted by law and about which we will advise you in this statement.

6.2Sending the email newsletter to existing customers

If you provided us with your email address when purchasing products or services, we reserve the right to send you regular offers about similar products or services to those already purchased from our range by email. For this purpose, we do not need to seek separate consent from you. In this respect, data is processed solely on the basis of our legitimate interest in personalised direct advertising pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 f of the GDPR. If you objected to the use of your email address for this purpose from the start, no emails will be sent on our part. You are entitled to object to the use of your email address for the afore-mentioned advertising purposes at any time with effect for the future by notifying the responsible body mentioned at the beginning. You will only incur the transmission costs according to the basic tariffs for this. On receipt of your objection, the use of your email address for advertising purposes will be stopped immediately.

6.3 Advertising by letter post

Based on our legitimate interest in personalised direct advertising, we reserve the right to save your first name and surname, your postal address and - if we have obtained these extra details from you as part of the contractual relationship - your title, academic degree, year of birth and your professional, industry or business title pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 f of the GDPR and use them to send interesting offers and information about our products by post.

You can object to your data being saved and used for this purpose at any time by sending a corresponding message the responsible body.

7) Data processing for order handling purposes

7.1 As part of executing the contract, the personal data collected by us is passed onto the transport company responsible for delivery if this is necessary to delivery the goods. As part of the payment handling process, we pass your payment details onto the bank responsible if this is necessary for payment processing. If payment service providers are used, we will advise you explicitly about this below. The legal basis for passing on data in this respect is Art. 6 Para. 1 b of the GDPR.

7.2 Use of payment service providers

BS PAYONE
If you opt for the credit card payment provided by the payment service provider, BS PAYONE, the payment will be processed by the payment service provider BS PAYONE GmbH, Lyoner Strasse 9

Paypal
When paying via PayPal, credit card via PayPal, direct debit via PayPal or – if provided – “Purchase on account” or “Payment by instalments” via PayPal, we will pass on your payment details to PayPal (Europe) S.a.r.l. et Cie, S.C.A., 22-24 Boulevard Royal, L-2449 Luxembourg (hereinafter "PayPal") as part of the payment handling process. These are passed on pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 b of the GDPR and only to the extent necessary for the payment handling process.
For the payment methods of credit card via PayPal, direct debit via PayPal or – if provided – “Purchase on account” or “Payment by instalments” via PayPal, PayPal reserves the right to carry out a credit check. For this purpose, your payment details may be passed on to credit agencies pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 f of the GDPR based on the legitimate interest of PayPal in determining your ability to pay. PayPal uses the result of the credit check in relation to the statistical probability of payment default for the purpose of deciding about the provision of the respective payment method. The credit check can contain probability values (so-called score values). If score values go into the credit check result, these are based on a scientifically acknowledged statistical procedure. Among other things, but not exclusively, address details go into calculating the score values. Further data protection law information, including the credit agencies used, can be found in the data protection statement issued by PayPal: https://www.paypal.com/de/webapps/mpp/ua/privacy-full
You can object to your data being processed in this way at any time by sending a message to PayPal. PayPal may still be entitled, however, to continue processing your personal data if necessary for the handling the payment according to the contract.

8) Use of social media: Videos

Use of YouTube videos

This website uses the YouTube embedding function to display and play back videos from the provider “YouTube”, which belongs to Google LLC., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”).

In this respect the extended data protection mode is used, which, according to the provider’s information, only stores user information once the video(s) is/are played back. If the playback of embedded YouTube videos is started, the provider “YouTube” uses cookies to collect information about the user’s behaviour. According to information provided by “YouTube”, this is used among other things to record video statistics, which improve user-friendliness and prevent improper conduct. If you are logged into Google, your data will be assigned directly to your account when you click on a video. If you do not want your data to be assigned to your YouTube profile, you must log out before pressing the button. Google saves your data (even for users not logged in) as usage profiles and analyses these. Such analysis is carried out in particular pursuant to Art. 6 Para 1 f of the DSGVO based on Google’s legitimate interest in showing personalised advertising, market research and/or tailoring the layout of its website in line with needs. You are entitled to object to these user profiles being created, whereby you must get in touch with YouTube to exercise this right.

Irrespective of playing back the embedded videos, every time this website is accessed a link to the Google network "DoubleClick” is recorded, which can trigger further data processing procedures without our influence.

Google LLC based in the USA is certified for the US-European data protection agreement, “Privacy Shield”, which ensures compliance with the data protection level applicable in the EU.

You can find further information about data protection at “YouTube” in the provider’s data protection statement under: https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy

9) Online marketing

9.1 Google AdSense

This website uses Google AdSense, a web ad service provided by Google LLC., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA ("Google"). Google AdSense uses so-called "DoubleClick DART Cookies" ("Cookies"). These are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyse how users use the site. In addition, Google AdSense also uses "web beacons" (small invisible graphics) to collect information, which can be used to record, collect and analyse simple actions such as visitor traffic to the website. The information generated by the cookie and/or web beacon about your use of this website (including the IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on a server in the United States as a rule.

Google uses the information obtained in this way to evaluate your usage behaviour with regard to the AdSense ads. The IP address transmitted from your browser as part of Google AdSense will not be put together with other Google data. The information collected by Google may be transferred to third parties where required to do so by law, and/or where such third parties process the information on Google's behalf.

The processing of data described is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 f of the GDPR for the purpose of targeting the user in advertising by advertising third parties, whose advertisements are displayed on this website based on the evaluated user behaviour. At the same time, the processing serves our financial interest in exploiting the economic potential of our Internet presence by displaying personalised third-party advertising content for a fee.

Google LLC based in the USA is certified for the US-European data protection agreement, “Privacy Shield”, which ensures compliance with the data protection level applicable in the EU.

https://www.google.com/settings/ads/plugin?hl=de

Please bear in mind that certain functions of this website may not be able to be used or only to a limited extent if you have disabled the use of cookies.

9.2 Use of Google AdWords conversion tracking

This website uses the online advertising programme, “Google AdWords”, and, as part of Google AdWords, conversion tracking provided by Google LLC., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”). We use the Google Adwords service to draw attention to our attractive product ranges with the help of advertising material (so-called Google Adwords) on external websites. In relation to the data from the advertising campaigns, we can determine how successful the individual advertising measures are. We thus pursue the interest of showing you advertising that is of interest to you, making our website more interesting for you and achieving a fair calculation of advertising costs.

The cookie for conversion tracking is set if a user clicks on an Adwords ad placed by Google. Cookies are small text files, which are stored on your computer system. These cookies lose their validity after 30 days as a rule and are not used for personal identification. If the user visits particular pages on this website and the cookie has not yet expired, we and Google can tell that the user has clicked on the ad and was directed to this page. Every Google AdWords customer is given a different cookie. Cookies cannot therefore be tracked through the websites of AdWords customers. The information collected with the aid of conversion cookies is used to create conversion statistics for AdWords customers who have opted for conversion tracking. The customers find out the total number of users who have clicked on their ad and were directed to a page with a conversion tracking tag. They do not receive any information, however, from which users can be personally identified. If you do not want to participate in tracking, you can block this usage by disabling the Google conversion tracking cookie on your Internet browser under user settings. In this case you will not be included in the conversion tracking statistics. We set Google Adwords based on our legitimate interest in targeted advertising pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 f of the GDPR.

Google LLC based in the USA is certified for the US-European data protection agreement, “Privacy Shield”, which ensures compliance with the data protection level applicable in the EU.

The following URL provides you with further information on the Google privacy policy: https//www.google.de/policies/privacy/

The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website (including the shortened IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on a server in the United States as a rule.
This website uses Google Analytics only with the add-on "_anonymizeIp()", which ensures the IP address is anonymised by being shortened and guarantees anonymity. The add-on ensures your IP address is shortened beforehand by Google in member states of the European Union or in other states that are party to the European Economic Area Agreement. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. In these exceptional cases, data is processed pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 f of the GDPR based on our legitimate interest in the statistical analysis of user behaviour for optimisation and marketing purposes.
On our behalf, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing us with other services relating to website activity and internet usage. The IP address transmitted from your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be put together with other Google data.
You can prevent cookies from being saved by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser software; however, please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website.

This tool can be used to track movements on websites on which Hotjar is installed (so-called heat maps). It can therefore be seen, for example, how far users scroll and what areas users click on how often. It is also possible to use the tool to collect feedback directly from the users of the website.

The above analysis is done based on our legitimate interest for optimisation and marketing purposes and designing our website in line with interests pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 f of the GDPR. When using this tool we pay particular attention to protecting your personal data. We can thus only track which areas you click on and how far you scroll. Areas of the website where personal data belonging to you or third parties is shown are automatically hidden by Hotjar and can therefore not be tracked at any point in time.

Hotjar offers every user the opportunity to stop the Hotjar tool being used with the help of a “Do Not Track header”, meaning that no data about the visit to the respective website is recorded. This involves a setting that all standard browsers support in the latest versions. For this purpose your browser sends a request to Hotjar asking to disable the tracking of the respective user. If you use our website with different browsers/computers, you must set up the “Do Not Track header” for each of these browsers/computers.
