Privacy and data protection

The company responsible for data processing is Halbach Seidenbänder GmbH, 42899 Remscheid, Ritterstr. 15, Managing Director: Roswitha Halbach. Further details on parties responsible can be found in the legal notice.

We take the protection of your personal data very seriously. That is why we strictly observe the rules of the data protection laws. Personal data is only collected on this website for technically necessary reasons. We use your order data exclusively for the purpose of fulfilling and processing your order. We save and process all customer data in accordance with the German data protection act (BDSG) and the German telemedia act (TMG). Any other use or collection of additional personal data shall require the consent of the persons concerned.

The following declaration provides an overview of how we guarantee this protection and what kind of data is collected to what degree of protection.

 

Revoking your consent to data processing

Certain data processing processes are only possible with your express consent. You may revoke your consent at any time. To do so all you need to do is send an informal email. The legality of the data processing which takes place up to when consent is revoked remains unaffected by the revocation.

Right to appeal to the competent supervisory authority

In the event of breaches of data protection law, the person concerned has a right to appeal to the competent supervisory authority. The responsible supervisory authority for data protection issues is the data protection officer of the federal state in which our company is based. A list of data protection officers and their contact details can be found on the following link: https://www.bfdi.bund.de/DE/Infothek/Anschriften_Links/anschriften_links-node.html.

 

Right to data portability

You have the right to have data which we process automatically on the basis of your consent or in fulfilment of a contract handed over to you or to a third party. This shall be provided in a machine-readable format. If you request the direct transfer of the data to another person responsible, this transfer will only take place if it is technically feasible.

 

SSL and TLS encryption

This site uses SSL and TLS encryption respectively for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content that you send to us as the site operator. This means that data transmitted via this website is not visible to third parties. You can recognise an encrypted connection by the “https://” address line on your browser and the key symbol in the browser bar.

Transfer of personal data to third parties, credit check

Data collected shall not be sold under any circumstances. If we have made payment in advance, we will obtain a statement of creditworthiness to protect our interests from SCHUFA Holding AG, Kormoranweg 5, 65201 Wiesbaden. Your protectable interests are taken into account in accordance with the relevant statutory provisions. This information is not disclosed to any other third parties.

Purchase on account will be processed by the company Halbach Seidenbänder GmbH. In order to assess the liability risk and creditworthiness, we may transfer address and creditworthiness data in the framework of legal admissibility and under consideration of the respective protectable interests excluding the transfer and use. 
Information about previous payment methods will be taken from the following credit agencies who store data for the purpose of supplying information:

- Bürgel, Bürgel Wirtschaftsinformationen GmbH & Co. KG, Gasstraße 18, D-22761 Hamburg, Tel.: +49 (0) 40 - 89 80 3 – 0, Fax: -777

Halbach ensures that the institute mentioned exclusively processes and/or uses your data for the purpose intended.

This means that you as the end customer also benefit from the revision of customer data for this purpose.
