Data privacy policy

We at Liebherr-Hausgeräte GmbH are pleased to welcome you to our web pages (hereinafter also referred to collectively as “website”) and thank you for your interest in the Liebherr Group.

The protection and security of your personal data is extremely important to us. We therefore consider it essential that we inform you below about the types of personal data we collect concerning you, the purposes for which we process this and the rights you have in relation to your personal data.

 

General information

What is personal data and what does processing mean?

  • “Personal data” (hereinafter also referred to as “data”) is any information that says something about a natural person. Personal data is not only information that makes a direct reference to a specific person (such as the name or e-mail address of a person), but also information with which, given appropriate additional knowledge, a reference to a specific person can be made.
  • “Processing” means any measures taken in relation to your personal data (such as the collection, recording, organisation, ordering, storage, use or deletion of data).

 

Who is the controller for the processing of your data?

The controller for the processing of your data is:

Liebherr-Hausgeräte GmbH

Memminger Straße 77-79

88416 Ochsenhausen

Germany

E-mail: privacy.appliances@liebherr.com

 

How can you contact our data protection officer?                                                                                                            

Our data protection officer can be reached using the following contact details:

What rights do you have as a data subject?

Within the provisions of the legislation, as the data subject you have the right to:

  • Information about your data;
  • The correction of incorrect data and the completion of incomplete data;
  • Deletion of your data, particularly if (1) it is no longer necessary for the purposes stated in this data protection declaration, (2) you withdraw your consent and there is no other legal basis for the processing, (3) your data has been unlawfully processed or (4) you have objected to the processing and there are no overriding legitimate grounds for the processing;
  • Restriction of the processing of your data, particularly if the accuracy of the data is contested by you or the processing of your data is unlawful and you request the restriction of use instead of deletion;
  • Object to processing of your data based on legitimate interests on grounds arising from your particular situation, or, without specific justification, to processing of your data carried out for direct marketing purposes; unless it is an objection to direct marketing, we ask that you explain the reasons why we should not process your data as we may do, when you lodge an objection. In the event of your reasoned objection, we will examine the merits of the case and cease processing unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims;
  • Receive your data in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format and the right to have your information transferred by us directly to another controller;
  • Withdraw consent, if you have given us consent for processing. Please note that the withdrawal of your consent shall not affect the legality of the processing carried out on the basis of your consent until the withdrawal.

If you seek to assert the above rights, kindly note that we may require you to provide proof to establish that you are the person who you say you are.

Furthermore, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority if you consider that the processing of your data infringes the GDPR.

 

Links to other websites

Our website may contain links to and from websites of other providers, which are not affiliated with us (“third parties”). Once the link has been clicked, we no longer have any influence over the processing of any data transferred to the third party upon clicking the link (such as the IP address, or URL where the link is located), as the conduct of third-parties is obviously beyond our control. We are therefore unable to take any responsibility for the processing of such data by third parties.

Use of cookies and other technologies

A. General information

We use cookies and other technologies in connection with the provision of our website. The cookie information below allows us to provide you as the user of our website with additional information on data processing when cookies and other technologies are used.

I. What are cookies and other technologies?

Cookies are small text files which a web server can store and read on your end device (computer, smartphone or similar) via the web browser used by you. Cookies contain individual, alphanumeric character strings that enable the web browser you are using to be identified and they may also contain information on user-specific settings.

Besides cookies, we use the following other technologies:

  • So-called local storage technology allows data to be stored locally only – i.e. solely on your end device and not on the web server – in the so-called “local storage” of your web browser. In contrast to cookies, data stored using local storage technology does not have an expiry date and is not simply automatically erased. In principle, however, you can erase this data yourself via your web browser. Please refer to the instructions from your web browser manufacturer on how to erase data stored via local storage technology.
  • We also have so-called tracking pixels (also called “pixels”, “pixel tags” or “web beacons”) on our website. Tracking pixels are small, usually invisible, image files that are automatically loaded by a web server and can provide information about your web browser or end device and also about your use of our website. This information can then be used to create a profile that is recognised when you visit our website

The cookies and other technologies referred to above are hereinafter together referred to as “cookies”.

 

II. What types of cookies and other technologies exist?

We distinguish between essential cookies on the one hand and optional cookies on the other:

  • Essential cookies are cookies which are technically necessary for the functionality of our website and information technology systems as well as for ensuring their security and stability. In this category we also include cookies which store specific settings made, options selected or information entered by you until you close your web browser (at the latest). This is in order to provide the desired function that you have requested (e.g. login status, language setting etc.). Your consent is not required for storing or reading essential cookies. You cannot, therefore, manage essential cookies via the settings of the consent management service we use. This can only be done via your web browser where you can also erase cookies stored or block the storage of cookies.
  • Optional cookies are cookies, which are not essential for the functionality of our website and information technology systems or for ensuring their security and stability, but are used for analysis or marketing purposes. These cookies can, for example, be used to compile anonymous statistics and collect information on how you use our website. This enables us to analyse the use of our website and therefore to optimise it. In this category we also include cookies which store specific settings made, options selected or information entered by you; these cookies remain after you have closed your web browser in order to provide the desired function you have requested (e.g. login status by selecting “Remember my e-mail address”, wish list, comparison list, etc.) over a longer term. Your prior consent is generally required for storing or reading optional cookies. You can consent to the use of optional cookies and withdraw any consent you have granted at any time with future effect via the settings of the consent management service we use.

Both essential and optional cookies may be so-called session cookies or persistent cookies. These differ in terms of their intended lifetime or functional life:

  • Session cookies are stored on your end device and are automatically deleted when you close your web browser. 
  • Persistent cookies (or permanent cookies) are stored on your end device and are not automatically deleted when you close your web browser. They remain on your end device for a predefined period of time.
  • Data stored using local storage technology does not have an expiry date and therefore has an unlimited functional life.

Note: You can generally erase cookies and data stored using local storage technology yourself via your web browser. For details, please refer to the instructions from your web browser manufacturer.

  • Consent management

Opening settings

In order that you can manage the use of optional cookies on our website, we have implemented a consent management service. The first time you access our website you will be presented with a previously defined query (“Cookies, other technologies and miscellaneous services”) via the consent management service. This allows you to accept or decline the use of optional cookies by clicking the appropriate button. Clicking on “settings” will also take you to the settings of the consent management service. Here, for example, a simplified list of cookies classified by type is included. The consent management service enables you, for example, to find out about the purposes of the cookies we use, the data processed in each case as well as any data recipients. Also, in the case of optional cookies, you can give or withdraw your consent at any time by selecting or deselecting the relevant box.

Please note that essential cookies are already stored when accessing our website and that the relevant box is preselected. Essential cookies cannot be deselected via the consent management service. The functionality of the consent management service itself in turn requires the use of certain cookies.

2. On which legal basis are essential cookies used?

In order to be able to demonstrate that – or whether – you have consented to the use of optional cookies requiring your consent, we store the information about your consent, whether granted or not, in order to fulfil our legal obligation to provide evidence in accordance with Art. 6(1)(c) and Art. 6(3)(a) GDPR in conjunction with Art. 7(1) GDPR.

We also use essential cookies for the purposes of legitimate interests in accordance with Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR.

Our legitimate interests are:

  • Ensuring the security and stability of our website and information technology systems, for example by protecting against attacks in the form of targeted server overloads (Denial of Service attacks) or by using optimal load distribution on servers
  • Asserting, exercising and defending legal claims
  • Providing and guaranteeing the proper functionalities of our website

 

3. How can I object to the use of essential cookies?

You can exercise your right to object using the blocking options described under “Erasing/blocking cookies” (cf. Art. 21(5) GDPR), i.e. by blocking essential cookies via your web browser settings.

Please note that in the case of erasing without blocking, essential cookies will be set again when you access our website at a later point in time. Please also note that deactivating or erasing or blocking essential cookies may adversely affect the performance and functionality of our website and may cause certain features and functions to be unavailable.

  • Web analysis

Subject to your consent, we use web analysis cookies to analyse the use of our website and therefore to be able to improve it continuously. The anonymised user statistics obtained (e.g. number and origin of website visitors) enable us to optimise our website and make its design more attractive - e.g. by appropriately positioning frequently accessed information or topics on our website in line with customer requirements.

For web analysis we use “Google Analytics”, a web analysis service of Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland; parent company: Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (hereinafter jointly referred to as “Google”), with the “IP anonymisation” extension (also called “IP masking method”). For this we have concluded a data processing agreement with Google in accordance with Art. 28 GDPR. In accordance with this, Google will process the data collected (data about your end device or your web browser, IP addresses and your website or application activities) on our behalf for the purposes of evaluating your use of our website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services for us relating to website and internet usage.

The data collected using Google Analytics can be stored and processed in the USA or in any other country in which Google, or subprocessors of Google, maintain facilities. However, the IP masking method we use means that before transfer to a Google server in the USA and before storage there, the IP address is shortened within EU member states or in other EEA member states so that no IP address is transferred in its entirety. This prevents identification of a person or makes this significantly more difficult. Only in exceptional cases will the complete, i.e. unshortened, IP addresses be transferred to a Google server in the USA and only shortened there.

For a data transfer to a third country, i.e. a country outside the EU or EEA, appropriate safeguards for the protection of your personal data are generally required. After the Commission Implementing Decision (EU) 2016/1250 of 12 July 2016 on the adequacy of the protection provided by the EU-US Privacy Shield was declared invalid by the European Court of Justice, the EU-US Privacy Shield can no longer be used to guarantee an adequate level of protection in the USA in line with EU standards. This means that currently in the USA there is no level of data protection that is equivalent to that in the EU pursuant to Art. 45 GDPR, and we cannot provide appropriate safeguards under Art. 46 GDPR to offset this shortfall. Data transfer to the USA is consequently only permitted in this case with your explicit consent in accordance with Art. 49(1)(a) GDPR. Possible risks of data transfer are that access by state authorities and/or intelligence services cannot be ruled out and your data, possibly without you being specifically informed about it and without being granted enforceable rights and effective legal remedies, can be processed by them for reasons of national security, prosecution or for other purposes in the public interest of the USA.

  • Marketing

We use marketing cookies, subject to your consent. Marketing cookies can detect whether you have accessed an advertised website and which content has been and is being used by you. This is in order to display advertising content relevant to you and tailored to your interests, to limit the frequency with which advertisements appear and to measure the success and effectiveness of advertising campaigns.

For marketing purposes, we use the following advertising products of Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland; parent company: Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (hereinafter together referred to as “Google”).

We use the advertising product “Google Ads” (formerly: AdWords). This product enables us to display advertisements, for example in Google search results, in the Google partner network or on other Google platforms. When you interact with an advertisement placed through Google Ads, such as by clicking on an advertisement, “Google Ads Conversion Tracking” uses a cookie to track whether you have subsequently completed an action (“conversion”) defined by us, such as subscribing to a newsletter. The information obtained with the cookie used is provided to us by Google in the form of so-called conversion statistics. From these statistics we can read, for example, the total number of anonymous users who have clicked on our advertisement. We receive no information ourselves that would enable personal identification. In addition to Google Ads Conversion Tracking, we use “Google Ads Remarketing” which enables advertisements to be displayed in the Google partner network during your subsequent internet usage following your visit to our website. For this purpose, Google records your usage behaviour when you visit various websites in the Google partner network, for which, according to Google, pseudonymisation is used. Another advertising product that we use is “Google Ad Manager” (formerly: “DoubleClick”). We use this to present targeted advertisements to you based on your perceived interests. A pseudonymous identification number is assigned to the web browser you are using in order to check which advertisements have already been displayed in your web browser and which of these you have accessed.

Data collected in the context of Google's advertising products may be stored and processed by Google, for example in the USA. We have no influence over subsequent data processing by Google. For a data transfer to a third country, i.e. a country outside the EU or EEA, appropriate safeguards for the protection of your personal data are generally required. After the Commission Implementing Decision (EU) 2016/1250 of 12 July 2016 on the adequacy of the protection provided by the EU-US Privacy Shield was declared invalid by the European Court of Justice, the EU-US Privacy Shield can no longer be used to guarantee an adequate level of protection in the USA in line with EU standards. This means that currently in the USA there is no level of data protection that is equivalent to that in the EU pursuant to Art. 45 GDPR, and we cannot provide appropriate safeguards under Art. 46 GDPR to offset this shortfall. Data transfer to the USA is consequently only permitted in this case with your explicit consent in accordance with Art. 49(1)(a) GDPR. Possible risks of data transfer are that access by state authorities and/or intelligence services cannot be ruled out and your data, possibly without you being specifically informed about it and without being granted enforceable rights and effective legal remedies, can be processed by them for reasons of national security, prosecution or for other purposes in the public interest of the USA.

2. On which legal basis are optional cookies used?

We use optional cookies on the basis of consent in accordance with Art. 6(1)(a) in conjunction with Art. 7 GDPR.

 

3. How can I withdraw the consent I have granted for the use of optional cookies?

When you (first) access our website, we request among other things your consent for the use of optional cookies by means of a predefined query (“Cookies, other technologies and other services”). You can withdraw the consent you have granted at any time with effect for the future and thereby prevent further collection of your data by deselecting optional cookies (web analysis, marketing) in the settings of the consent management service.

If and insofar as you do not consent or withdraw consent already granted - (further) data collection by means of optional cookies requiring consent and data processing associated with this will cease. This has no disadvantages in terms of using the website unless you also deactivate the cookie functions for essential cookies.

The revocation of consent will not affect the legality of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent up to revocation.

As an alternative to withdrawing your consent, the options described under “Erasing/blocking cookies” relating to erasing or blocking cookies along with the information provided there are also available to you.

 

C. Erasing/blocking cookies

Cookies are stored on your end device which means that you have the control over these. If you do not want us to recognise your end device, you can deactivate or erase cookies already stored on your end device at any time – manually or automatically – and/or block storage of cookies with future effect by making the relevant setting on your web browser software. e.g. “not accept cookies” or similar. Most web browsers can also be configured so that cookie storage is only accepted if you agree to this separately on a case-by-case basis. If you do not want to accept cookies from our service providers and partners, you should have your web browser set to “block third-party cookies” or similar. The “Help” function in the menu bar of your web browser usually shows you how to deactivate or erase cookies already stored and how to decline new cookies. For details of the options described, please refer to the instructions from your web browser manufacturer.

Please note that in the case of erasing without blocking, essential cookies will be set again and we may ask you again for your consent to optional cookies when you access our website at a later point in time. Please also note that deactivating or erasing or blocking essential cookies may adversely affect the performance and functionality of our website and may cause certain features and functions to be unavailable.

You can manage the settings for the use of optional cookies and the data processing associated with this at any time in the settings of the consent management service.

 

Integration of third-party services

As part of the provision of our website, we integrate different content and functional elements (hereinafter also referred to collectively as “services”) which are obtained from the web servers of their respective providers (hereinafter referred to as “third-party providers”). Your IP address always needs to be transferred to the respective third-party provider to ensure the proper presentation and provision of the services. Although we endeavour to only integrate services where the respective third-party provider uses the IP address only to deliver the services, we have no influence on the subsequent processing by third-party providers.

For data transfers requiring consent, we ask you for your consent for the data transfer to third-party providers/third countries associated with the use of miscellaneous services, among other things, when you access our website for the first time with a predefined query (“Cookies, other technologies and miscellaneous services”). If you do not already grant your consent with this predefined query, third-party services requiring your consent will be blocked on our website and no data will be transferred to third-party providers/third countries. Instead, you can grant your consent separately in each case for individual third-party services by clicking “Accept” in the respective blocker. If, in future, you no longer want to grant consent individually to each third-party service and want to be able to load them without the respective blocker, you also have the option of selecting “always accept” and therefore also consenting to the associated data transfers for all other third-party services which you open on our website in the future.

You can withdraw the consent you have granted at any time with effect for the future and thereby prevent further transfer of your data by deselecting the corresponding services under “Miscellaneous services (optional)” in the settings of the consent management service.

Integrated third-party services:

  • Vimeo videos

On our website, we integrate videos from “Vimeo”, a service provided by Vimeo.com, Inc., 555 West 18th Street, New York 10011, USA (hereinafter referred to jointly as “Vimeo”). “Extended data protection mode” is activated for integrated Vimeo videos in order that no cookies are used to analyse usage behaviour.

Subject to your consent, we transfer your data including your IP address to Vimeo when you load a Vimeo video. Data transferred in the context of Vimeo videos may be stored and processed by Vimeo, for example, in the USA. We have no influence over subsequent data processing by Vimeo. For a data transfer to a third country, i.e. a country outside the EU or EEA, appropriate safeguards for the protection of your personal data are generally required. After the Commission Implementing Decision (EU) 2016/1250 of 12 July 2016 on the adequacy of the protection provided by the EU-US Privacy Shield was declared invalid by the European Court of Justice, the EU-US Privacy Shield can no longer be used to guarantee an adequate level of protection in the USA in line with EU standards. This means that currently in the USA there is no level of data protection that is equivalent to that in the EU pursuant to Art. 45 GDPR, and we cannot provide appropriate safeguards under Art. 46 GDPR to offset this shortfall. Data transfer to the USA is consequently only permitted in this case with your explicit consent in accordance with Art. 49(1)(a) GDPR. Possible risks of data transfer are that access by state authorities and/or intelligence services cannot be ruled out and your data, possibly without you being specifically informed about it and without being granted enforceable rights and effective legal remedies, can be processed by them for reasons of national security, prosecution or for other purposes in the public interest of the USA.

  • Google Tag Manager

On our website, we use the “Google Tag Manager”, a service of Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland; parent company: Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (hereinafter together referred to as “Google”).

The Google Tag Manager is a service, which allows us to use other services, such as Google Analytics, on our website or to manage their use without having to change the source code of the website for this purpose. The Google Tag Manager itself does not collect or access any personal data, but merely controls and executes the services managed by it, which in turn may process data with your consent, if necessary.

Data recipients

We may transfer your data to:

  • Other companies of the Liebherr Group, provided this is required to bring about, perform or terminate a contract, or there is a legitimate interest in the transfer on our part, and it is not precluded by your overriding legitimate interest;
  • Providers of functions and any other services actively utilised by you;
  • Our service providers that we use in order to achieve the above purposes;
  • The recipient(s) requested by you;
  • Courts, arbitrators, authorities or legal advisers, if this is required to comply with the applicable law or to establish, exercise or defend legal claims.

 

Data transfers to third countries

A data transfer to entities in countries outside the European Union or the European Economic Area (so-called third countries) or to international organisations is permissible only (1) if you have given us your consent or (2) if the European Commission has decided that there is an adequate level of protection in a third country (Art. 45 GDPR). If the Commission has not taken such a decision, we can transfer your data to recipients located in a third country only if appropriate safeguards exist (e.g. standard data protection clauses adopted by the Commission or the supervisory authority under a specific procedure) and the enforcement of your rights as a data subject is guaranteed or the transfer is permissible in individual cases on the grounds of other legal bases (Art. 49 GDPR).

Where we transfer your data to third countries, we will inform you of the respective details of the transfer at the relevant points in this data protection declaration.

 

Data erasure and storage period

We process your data, provided that this is necessary for the respective purpose, if you have not effectively objected to the processing of your data or effectively withdrawn the consent that you may have granted.

If statutory retention obligations exist, we will have to store the data affected thereby for the duration of the retention obligation. After the expiry of the retention obligation, we will check whether there is any further necessity for processing. If there is no longer any necessity, your data will be deleted.

 

Data security

We use technical and organisational security measures to ensure that your data is protected from loss, improper changes or unauthorised access by third parties. Moreover, we ensure that, on our side, only authorised persons are granted access to your data and then only to the extent necessary for the above-mentioned purposes. The transfer of all data is encrypted.
