Privacy Policy

CLAAS is committed to protecting your privacy and safeguarding your personal data. We want you to know when we collect what kind of data about you and how we make use of such data. We have technical and administrative procedures in place to ensure that we comply with data protection rules and regulations and that this includes any external service providers working for us.

 

Personal Data

Personal data is information that can be used to determine your identity. This includes your name, address, postal address, and telephone number. It does not include information which is not linked to your identity (e.g. user statistics for our online services). Basically speaking you may use our online services without disclosing your identity.

However, if you wish to purchase products or would like to set up a customer account, we will request your name and other personal information. It is entirely up to you whether you enter this data. For certain actions, e.g. ordering goods, some information is obligatory. You can recognise obligatory details by the fact that they are marked with an asterisk as “required fields”. If other details are requested and not marked as “required fields”, then these are voluntary details.

 

Storage and Processing of Personal Data

Your personal information is stored on dedicated and secure servers. We have technical and administrative protection measures in place to protect your data against loss, deletion, access, alteration or dissemination by unauthorised persons. Access to your data is limited to only a few authorised individuals. These are responsible for providing technical, commercial, or administrative support to the servers. Despite regular controls it is, however, impossible to guarantee complete protection against all threats.

The personal information you provide is transmitted via the internet in encrypted form. We use SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encryption for such data transmission.

When you access our site, data is stored on our servers for security reasons (for example, IP address, date, time, and pages viewed). Such data may possibly enable individual users to be identified. However, we do not use the IP address to identify users. We may nevertheless use stored IP addresses for the purpose of (anonymous) statistical analyses. In addition, the details of your IP address and other information may be used to prevent their fraudulent use (fraud prevention).

 

Disclosure of Personal Information to Third Parties

We only use your personal data collected during the ordering process within our own company and our associated companies and when dealing with companies charged with processing orders. Otherwise we will not disclose your data to third parties without your express permission and especially not for advertising purposes. In as far as we are required to do so by law or due to a court ruling, we will disclose your data to entitled persons.

 

Newsletter

Our newsletter informs users about new and special offers per e mail at regular intervals. This newsletter is sent either in English or German, as requested.

It is only sent to users who have expressly subscribed to the newsletter service. Your e mail address is not added to the newsletter distribution list until the confirmation link sent via e-mail after ordering is used. The data requested for this purpose includes your e mail address, form of address, title, first name, and last name. This data is only used to correctly address the recipient. If your postal address is also voluntarily provided, we may possibly use this to provide additional information by post.

No other use of the data provided in subscribing to the newsletter shall be made.

You may revoke your consent with effect for the future at any time by unsubscribing from the Newsletter.
