We take protecting your data seriously
Thank you for visiting our website. We are delighted that you are interested in our company and our products / services. We take protecting your personal data very seriously, and we want you to feel secure with regard to the information you give us when you visit our website. For us, complying with German data security law is a matter of course.
We want you to know what data we collect at Höcherl und Hackl GmbH while you are visiting our website, when we collect it and how we use this information. We have taken technical and organisational measures that ensure that data protection regulations are observed by us and by any service providers we work together with.
Personal data is information about your identity. This includes your name, your address and telephone number, and your email address. You don´t have to divulge personal information in order to be able to use our internet site. But in some cases we need your name and address, and further information so that we can provide you with the services you require.
The same applies when we want to give you information material or supply you with goods you have ordered, or when we need to answer your questions. We will always tell you when this is necessary. Also, we only store or process data that you have provided us with either voluntarily or automatically.
If you use one of our services, we usually only take the data that is necessary to provide you with the service you require. We may ask you for further information, but this is voluntary. Whenever we process personal data, we do it to provide you with the service you required or to fulfil our legitimate commercial interests.
Using your personal data
As a rule, we only use the personal data you have provided us with to answer your queries, process your orders, or to provide you with access to specific information or offers. We, or one fo the service providers we work with, may also want to use this information to provide you with information about our services, or about products that may interest you. We may also use it for online surveys to help us improve customer service.
Naturally, we respect your wishes if you prefer not to provide us with additional information for customer services (especially if this is for direct marketing or market research purposes). We never give personal information to third parties or use it for other purposes.
Using your personal information for specific purposes
The personal information you provided us with will only be used for the specific purpose requested by you. We will not give your details to third parties without your permission.
Personal data is only shared with public authorities and government institutions when this is stipulated by law, or when we are forced to do so by a court of law. Our staff and any service providers we work with are bound to confidentiality and to observing the regulations of the Federal German Data Protection laws.
