Disclaimer


1. Right to change the contents at any time

We expressly reserve the right to change, supplement, delete parts of the pages of www.imhof-tanktechnik.de or the entire service range in whole or in part without separate announcement or to discontinue publication temporarily or for good.


2. References and links

a) In a judgement dated 12 May 1998 (File No. 312 O 85/98 – “Liability for Hyperlinks“), the Hamburg Provincial Court decided that, by placing a hyperlink (= direct or indirect reference to external websites), the provider of a website bears, under appropriate circumstances, a joint responsibility for the contents of the linked external website. The court decided that this can only be counteracted by expressly distancing oneself from the contents of the linked external website. We herewith expressly distance ourselves from all linked external websites. We expressly disclaim any liability for these linked external websites. For the contents of a linked external website and particularly for damage which occurs by the use or non-use of information presented on such external websites, only the provider or author himself can be held liable, not we who established a link to these websites.

b) The Local Court Berlin Tiergarten decided on 30 June 1997 (File No. 260 DS 857/96) that liability is likewise excluded, if the external website, which the provider who placed the link or the defendant makes reference to, was legally harmless at the time of placing the hyperlink and was changed subsequently without the knowledge of the provider who placed the link or the defendant, in a way which is relevant for prosecution. According to this decision, the provider who places the link or the defendant is insofar not obliged to continuously check the external websites which he refers to. As soon as any legal infringements on external websites, which we refer to in hyperlinks, become known, we will immediately remove such hyperlinks from our website. We herewith expressly declare that at the time of placing the link to an external website, no illegal contents were perceptible on the linked sites. We do not have any influence whatsoever on the current and future layout, contents or authorship of the linked external websites. For this reason, we herewith expressly distance ourselves from all contents of all linked external websites, which were changed after placing the link.

c) The above statements shall apply to all hyperlinks and references placed within our current internet presentation on the pages of www.imhof-tanktechnik.de and to all entries made by third persons in visitors’ books, discussion groups, link lists, mailing lists and in any other type of database established by us, which provide access to the contents of external websites.


3. Copyright and trademark law

a) We make every effort to observe the copyrights and intellectual property rights in all publications on this website concerning the used pictures, graphics, audio documents, video sequences and texts, to use pictures, graphics, audio documents, video sequences and texts created by us or to use license-free graphics, audio documents, video sequences and texts.

The copyright or the intellectual property right for published objects produced by the author himself remains solely with the author of the pages. Duplication, processing, publication, use or any other form of utilizing such graphics, audio documents, video sequences and texts outside the copyright in other electronic or printed publications is not permitted without the express permission of the author. The contents and productions on these pages are subject to the German copyright law.

b) All brands and trademarks mentioned on the pages of www.imhof-tanktechnik.de and possibly protected by third parties are subject without restriction to the provisions of the brand and/or trademark law valid at that time and to the registered proprietor’s right to possession. Where brands are listed without a trademark, it cannot be assumed that they are not protected by third party rights.

Privacy Statement

Protection of your personal data

We appreciate your interest in our website and in our service spectrum. The protection of your personal data, when you visit our website, is of high importance to us. We take your privacy very seriously, particularly in relation to the collection, transfer, processing and use of your personal data in connection with your visit to our website.

Our website may be used without entering personal information. Different rules may apply to certain services on our site, however, and are explained separately below. We collect personal information from you (e.g. name, address, email address, telephone number, etc.) in accordance with the provisions of German data protection statutes. Information is considered personal if it can be associated exclusively to a specific natural person. The legal framework for data protection may be found in the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG), the German Telemedia Act (TMG) and the EU General Data Protection Regulation. The provisions below serve to provide information as to the manner, extent and purpose for collecting, using and processing personal information by the provider.

Please be aware that data transfer via the internet is subject to security risks and, therefore, complete protection against third-party access to transferred data cannot be ensured.

Future changes to this data protection declaration possible

Experience has shown that the data protection legislation is subject to regular reforms, to which our data protection declaration may also have to adapt. The content of our offer is also subject to constant changes and further developments. We therefore reserve the right to adapt this data protection declaration accordingly.

Cookies

Our website makes use of so-called cookies in order to recognize repeat use of our website by the same user/internet connection subscriber. Cookies are small text files that your internet browser downloads and stores on your computer. They are used to improve our website and services. In most cases these are so-called "session cookies" that are deleted once you leave our website.

To an extent, however, these cookies also pass along information used to automatically recognize you. Recognition occurs through an IP address saved to the cookies. The information thereby obtained is used to improve our services and to expedite your access to the website.

You can prevent cookies from being installed by adjusting the settings on your browser software accordingly. You should be aware, however, that by doing so you may not be able to make full use of all the functions of our website.

Use of Google Maps

We use the “Google Maps” component of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereinafter “Google.”

Google sets a cookie in order to process the user configuration and data when the page with the integrated “Google Maps” component is displayed. As a general rule, this cookie is not deleted by closing the browser, but rather expires after a certain time, as long as it is not previously manually deleted by you.

If you do not agree with this processing of your data, you may choose to deactivate the “Google Maps” service and thereby prevent the transfer of data to Google. To do this, you must deactivate the Java Script function in your browser. However, we would like to point out that in this case you will not be able to use “Google Maps” or at least only to a limited extent.

The use of “Google Maps” and the information obtained through “Google Maps” is according to Google’s Terms of Use

http://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/terms/regional.html

as well as the additional Terms and Conditions for "Google Maps"

https://www.google.com/intl/de_de/help/terms_maps.html.

Profiling

As a responsible company, we act without automatic decision-making or profiling.

Collection of further personal data only on a voluntary basis

Personal data other than those mentioned in the preceding sections will only be collected and stored by us if this information has been provided voluntarily by you, e.g. within the scope of an e-mail inquiry via a contact form, if applicable, or registration to receive a newsletter that we may offer.

You have the right at any time to revoke any consent you have already given us to collect data with effect for the future.

Use and disclosure of personal data

As far as you have transmitted or communicated personal data to us, we use these only for the answer of your inquiries, for the completion with you of closed contracts, for the treatment of your orders given to us as well as for the technical administration, further file management and account. Provided you give your consent, we will also send you current information at regular intervals in the form of a free newsletter if we offer such a service.

Your personal data will only be passed on or otherwise transmitted by us to third parties if this is necessary for the purpose of contract execution or for billing purposes, or if you have given your prior consent, or if we are entitled or obliged to do so on the basis of legal regulations (e.g. surrender to criminal prosecution authorities).

You have the right at any time to revoke any consent you have already given us to collect data with effect for the future.

In principle, no transfer of personal data abroad or to supranational or intergovernmental bodies

As a matter of principle, we do not transfer data abroad or to supranational or intergovernmental bodies. If data transmission abroad or to supranational or intergovernmental bodies should be necessary, this shall only take place in accordance with the legal admissibility regulations in accordance with §§ 4b and 4c BDSG.

Legal basis for the processing

Art. 6 I lit. a German DS-VGO serves our company as a legal basis for processing operations for which we obtain consent for a specific processing purpose.

If the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the affected individual is a party, as is the case for example with processing operations necessary for the delivery of goods or the provision of other services or consideration, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. b German DS-VGO. The same applies to such processing processes that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures, for example in cases of enquiries about our products or services.

If our company is subject to a legal obligation which requires the processing of personal data, for example to fulfil tax obligations, the processing is based on Art. 6 I lit. c German DS-VGO.

In rare cases, the processing of personal data may become necessary to protect the vital interests of the affected infividual or another natural person.
This would be the case, for example, if a visitor were injured in our company and his name, age, health insurance data or other vital information had to be passed on to a doctor, a hospital or other third parties. The processing would then be based on Art. 6 I lit. d German DS-VGO. Ultimately, processing operations could be based on Art. 6 I lit. f German DS-VGO. Processing operations which are not covered by any of the aforementioned legal bases are based on this legal basis if processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company or a third party, provided that the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not prevail. Such processing procedures are permitted to us in particular because they have been specifically mentioned by the European legislator. In this respect, it took the view that a legitimate interest could be assumed if the person concerned is a customer of the person responsible (recital 47 sentence 2 German DS-GVO).

Entitled interests in the processing pursued by the person in charge or a third party

If the processing of personal data is based on Article 6 I lit. f DS-GMO, our legitimate interest is to conduct our business for the well-being of all our employees and our shareholders.

Duration for which the personal data is stored

The criterion for the duration of the storage of personal data is the respective legal retention period. After the expiry of this period, the corresponding data will be routinely deleted, so long as it is no longer necessary for the fulfilment or initiation of the contract.

Legal or contractual regulations for the provision of personal data;
Necessity for the conclusion of the contract;
Obligation of the affected individual to provide the personal data;
possible consequences of nonprovision

We inform you that the provision of personal data is partly required by law (e.g. tax regulations) or may also result from contractual regulations (e.g. information on the contractual partner). In some cases, it may be necessary for a contract to be concluded if a affected individual provides us with personal data which must subsequently be processed by us.

For example, the affected individual is obliged to provide us with personal data if our company enters into a contract with him/her.

Failure to provide personal data would mean that the contract with the affected individual could not be concluded. Prior to the provision of personal data by the data subject, the data subject must contact one of our employees. Our employee will inform the affected individual on a case-by-case basis whether the provision of personal data is required by law or contract or required for the conclusion of the contract, whether there is an obligation to provide the personal data and what consequences the failure to provide the personal data would have.

Information/Cancellation/Deletion

On the basis of the Federal Data Protection Act, you may contact us at no cost if you have questions relating to the collection, processing or use of your personal information, if you wish to request the correction, blocking or deletion of the same, or if you wish to cancel explicitly granted consent. Please note that you have the right to have incorrect data corrected or to have personal data deleted, where such claim is not barred by any legal obligation to retain this data.
