Data acquisition and transmission

II. Information on data collection and processing by PASCHAL:

Data acquisition and transmission: We receive your data either directly from you, via a third party or via generally accessible sources. We use these data to meet your need for information, to perform contracts and for pre- and post-contractual processing. Transmission of these data only occurs in strictly limited cases. For example, this is the case, if it is required for the performance of a contract (e.g., the transmission of your data to a forwarding agent), if there is a legal obligation or when we are required to assert our rights. We might also be required to transmit your communication data, as well as data related to contact persons of your company to our partner company, planitec GmbH, to enable us to better provide you with information related to our services. Occasionally, we may seek credit information.
Processing of data when visiting the PASCHAL internet website

III. Information related to the processing of data when visiting the PASCHAL internet website

Processing of the data: The use of our website is generally possible without providing personal data. Any data we eventually collect is not used to identify you, but to ensure that you are provided with an optimal web presentation. When you visit our website, data is collected, processed and used. During this process, it might not always be possible to exclude a personal reference. The IP address must be recorded and stored (in a compacted form) to enable the pages to be displayed in your browser. Usually, an IP address is currently dynamically assigned by your provider. This address usually changes regularly, we are thus unable to establish a personal reference based on the IP address. However, it would be theoretically possible to establish a personal reference in individual cases with static IP addresses.

The following dataset is stored every time you visit our website:

  • The IP address of the visiting computer (stored in a compact form)
  • The visiting computer´s operating system
  • The visiting computer´s browser version
  • The name of the retrieved file
  • The date and time of the retrieval
  • The amount of transmitted data
  • The referring URL

These stored data are collected and stored in anonymous form for marketing purposes, as well as to optimise the website´s user-friendly features. These data are not used to personally identify visitors, the visitor personally, even though the website operator may analyse the user´s interaction behaviour at the level of individual sessions. Your data will never be disclosed to commercial address dealers.

Isofar as personal data are collected on our pages (for example name, address or e-mail address), this occurs on a voluntary basis, for example, when you register for events, subscribe to newsletters, participate in online questionnaires, request documentation or offers or make purchases. PASCHAL only collects and uses your personal data to the extent that they are required for the implementation of the contractual relationship or for processing your inquiry.

We take the opportunity to highlight the fact that data transmission via the internet (e.g. communication by email) may involve security gaps and cannot be completely protected against access by third parties.

For the implementation of our website presence, we cooperate with various service providers who are bound by our right to issue directives and whom we have contractually committed to comply with data protection regulations (order data processing). To this extent, this data processing does not require any specific consent on your behalf.
