By using this website, you acknowledge the validity of our general terms and conditions for the use of this website. If you do not accept these conditions, you are requested not to use this website. Should any of your own general terms and conditions be in contradiction with these terms and conditions, the former shall not be considered to have been agreed upon and shall therefore be considered inapplicable. We herewith authorize you to visit our website and to download parts of our website, provided you protect and do not violate our rights, especially any entitlements arising from copyright law. This means that you do not have the right to revise in any way, transmit to third parties or grant third parties any rights to this website or parts thereof, either online or offline after download. Any improper use of this website may accordingly represent infringement of copyright law, brand and copyright law, unfair competition law or other laws.

All use of the website in its entirety or parts thereof, especially of texts, partial texts, images, videos and/or audio data, as well as any act, sufferance or negligence in connection with use of the website shall be governed exclusively by Austrian law.

ALUKÖNIGSTAHL GmbH reserves the right to modify these terms and conditions of use from time to time, and to bring them into line with new technical developments and legal circumstances.

Privacy Notice Website

  1. GENERAL

This Privacy Notice details the information that is ceded or collected and stored when using the ALUKÖNIGSTAHL Group website (hereinafter referred to as: AKS or “we“) and how AKS subsequently protects these data.

 

This privacy policy is addressed to each visitor to our website (“data subject” or “you“).

We process your personal data in accordance with the EU General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR“) and applicable national data protection laws. Unless otherwise defined in this Privacy Policy, terms used herein have the same meaning as in the GDPR.

  1. THE COLLECTION, PROCESSING, AND USE OF PERSONAL DATA

When you visit our website, we may process personal data that you voluntarily share with us (e.g. when registering for webinars or using our contact form).

However, you can also visit our website without actively providing us with information about yourself. In this case, we only collect certain data that your browser transmits to our website server (so-called “log files”) as well as data that we collect using cookies or similar technologies.

The following is intended to inform you of the ways in which we may collect personal information about you on our website and the lawful purposes for which we may use it.

 

Personal data that you actively share with us

When you actively communicate with us via our website, we process those personal data that you voluntarily share with us. This relates to our following offers:

 

Contact form: If you choose to contact us via the contact form provided on our website, the personal data you share with us (e.g. name, title, email address, address and your request) will be processed. This data is processed in order to answer your questions, fulfil your request or otherwise communicate with you.

 

Legal basis: Art 6 para 1 lit b GDPR – fulfilment of (pre-)contractual obligations.

 

Newsletter: If you have subscribed to our newsletter via the website, the personal data you have provided (e.g. name, email address, date of birth, product preferences) will be processed in order to send you the requested newsletter with customised information about our products and available promotions. If you no longer wish to receive the newsletter, you can unsubscribe at any time by clicking on the corresponding link in the newsletter or sending us your revocation by e-mail.

Legal basis: Art 6 para 1 lit a GDPR – Consent.

Some of the data we request in connection with our above-mentioned offers may be marked as mandatory fields (*). You are not obligated to provide this data. However, without providing this information we may not be able to process your request or provide our services.

 

Logfiles

You can also visit our website without actively providing us with information about yourself. In this case, we collect certain data that your browser transmits to our website server (i.e. log files)

 

Our log files contain the following information: The date and time our website is accessed, (ii) the type, version and settings of your web browser, (iii) your operating system and service provider, (iv) pages and files requested, (v) the website used prior to visiting our website and (vi) your IP address. An IP address is a specific number assigned to your computer that enables your device to communicate on a network using Internet Protocol (IP). IP addresses may qualify as personal data as they allow the identification of the user in certain circumstances.

The processing of these log files is necessary for us to ensure the functionality, stability and security of our website. We may also process them as part of forensic investigations in the event of a security incident or to compile user statistics. For statistical purposes, your IP address is only used in anonymised form.

 

Legal basis: Art 6 para 1 lit f GDPR (legitimate interest in maintaining the functionality, stability and security of our website.)

 

Cookies

This website uses cookies. Cookies are small text files that are stored by the browser on your computer. Cookies cannot access, read or modify other data stored on your device. When we talk about “cookies”, we include other technologies with similar purposes, such as pixel tags.

Web Analytics

  1. Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 (hereinafter: Google). This use includes the “Universal Analytics” operating mode. This makes it possible to assign data, sessions and interactions across multiple devices to a pseudonymous user ID and thus analyse a user’s activities across devices. Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, which are text files that are stored on your computer and enable an analysis of how you use the website. As a rule, the cookie-generated data regarding your use of this website will be forwarded to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, if IP anonymisation is enabled on this website, your IP address will first be truncated by Google within the member states of the European Union or other contracting parties to the agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics is not merged with other Google data. Google will use this information on behalf of the operator of this website to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity, and to provide other services regarding website activity and Internet usage for the website operator. Our legitimate interest in data processing also lies in these purposes. The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is § 95 TKG or Article 6 Paragraph 1 (a) GDPR.

 

Sessions and campaigns will end after a certain period of time. By default, sessions end after 30 minutes without activity and campaigns after six months. The time limit for campaigns can be up to a maximum of two years.

 

You can prevent cookies from being stored by selecting the appropriate settings in your browser; however, we wish to point out that by doing so, you may not be able to enjoy the full functionality of this website. You can also prevent Google from collecting the data generated by the cookie and that relates to your use of the website (including your IP address) and from processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the following browser add-on: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de. Opt-out cookies prevent future collection of your data when you visit this website. In order to prevent data collection by Universal Analytics across multiple devices, you need to perform the opt-out on all systems you are using.

  1. Facebook Pixel

Our website uses the “Facebook Pixel” of the social network Facebook, which is operated by Facebook Inc, 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA, or if you are a resident of the EU, Facebook Ireland Ltd, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland (“Facebook”).

With the help of the Facebook pixel, it is possible for Facebook to determine the visitors to our website as a target group for the display of advertisements, so-called “Facebook ads”. For this purpose, the Facebook remarketing tag has been implemented on this website. This tag establishes a direct connection to the Facebook servers when the website is visited. This transmits to the Facebook server that you have visited this website and Facebook assigns this information to your personal Facebook user account. The collected data is not visible to us but can only be used in the context of ad placements.

The collection and transmission of your personal data for Facebook Pixel purposes is based on your consent, which you can give by selecting it in the cookie pop-up (Art 6 para 1 lit a GDPR). This consent can be revoked at any time with effect for the future. You can also refuse the use of cookies by making the appropriate settings in your browser.

 

The Facebook web tracking opt-out is disabled on this page.

 

Alternatively, you can deactivate the “Custom Audiences” remarketing function at https://www.facebook.com/settings/?tab=ads#_=_ . To do this, you must be logged in to Facebook. For more information on the collection and use of data by Facebook and your rights in this regard and options for protecting your privacy, please refer to Facebook’s privacy policy at https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy.

  1. LinkedIn Conversion Tracking

Our website uses the conversion tracking tool of LinkedIn Ireland, Wilton Plaza, Wilton Place, Dublin 2, Ireland (“LinkedIn”). For this purpose, the LinkedIn Insight Tag is integrated on our website, which enables LinkedIn to collect statistical, pseudonymous data about your visit and use of our website and to provide us with corresponding aggregated statistics based on your usage actions. This is done to measure the effectiveness of our LinkedIn campaigns. As a rule, the following information is collected in particular: LinkedIn user ID (cookie ID), IP address, metadata of the website visit, such as browser type, website visited.

We process your personal data for the purposes of LinkedIn conversion tracking based on your consent, which you can give by selecting it in the cookie pop-up (Art 6 para 1 lit a GDPR). This consent can be revoked at any time with effect for the future. You can also refuse the use of cookies by making the appropriate settings in your browser.

The LinkedIn conversion tracking opt-out is deactivated on this page.
You can activate the opt-out here: https://www.linkedin.com/psettings/guest-controls/retargeting-opt-out

  1. RECIPIENTS OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA

For the above purposes, we may disclose your personal data to the following recipients:

… to our employees who need them to fulfil contractual and legal obligations as well as legitimate interests, group companies, external service providers (e.g. IT service providers) and cooperation partners who provide data processing services for us or who otherwise process personal data for the purposes described in this privacy policy (such as external consultants) or who are notified to you when we collect your personal data. We will provide you with a list of our current service providers and partners upon request. All recipients are obliged to treat your data confidentially and to process it only in the context of providing the service;

… to advertising and web analytics partners (e.g. Google LLC) who provide certain services in connection with our website;

… to competent authorities, such as tax, regulatory or security authorities, or public bodies, courts or other third parties, if disclosure is necessary (i) under applicable laws or regulations, (ii) to exercise, preserve or defend our legal rights, or (iii) to protect your important interests or the important interests of another person;

… to a prospective purchaser (and its agents and advisors) in connection with a proposed purchase, merger or acquisition of our business (or any part thereof), provided that we inform the purchaser that it may only use your personal data for the purposes set out in this privacy notice;

… to any other person, provided you consent to the disclosure.

Some of these recipients may be located in countries outside the EU or EEA which have not yet been certified by the EU Commission as having an adequate level of data protection. It should be noted that the level of data protection in these countries may not be the same as within the EU or EEA. In addition, it is possible that this data may be subject to access by local authorities or courts in accordance with the applicable provisions.

 

However, when we transfer personal data to such third countries, we implement appropriate security safeguards to ensure that your rights are protected in accordance with the provisions of the GDPR. This includes the conclusion of the standard contractual clauses for the transfer of personal data published by the EU Commission (Art 46 (2) (c) of the GDPR). Further details on the security guarantees used as well as copies of the respective agreements are available upon request at datasecurity@alukoenigstahl.com.

 

  1. HOW LONG WE STORE YOUR DATA

Log files are generally stored for a period of three months. Beyond this period, log files are only stored for the purpose of investigating irregularities or security incidents in our systems. For the storage period of cookies, see paragraph 2 point ” THE COLLECTION, PROCESSING, AND USE OF PERSONAL DATA / Cookies used”.

In general, we only store your personal data for as long as is necessary to fulfil the purpose for which it was collected. In any case, we therefore store your data for the duration of our contractual or service relationship with you. Beyond this period, we store your personal data for the fulfilment of legal retention obligations (e.g. for the fulfilment of the 7-year retention obligation according to the applicable tax and company law provisions). Where necessary, we may also retain your data for as long as potential legal claims against us are not yet time-barred; for certain claims, the statutory limitation period may be up to 30 years.

As soon as there are no justified reasons for the further storage of personal data, these are either deleted or anonymised.

…to request us to restrict the processing of your personal data (right to restriction)

to receive the personal data you have provided to us in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format and to transfer this data to another controller (right to data portability)
