Data protection declaration
Thank you for expressing your interest in our website. Protecting your privacy is very important to us. Below you will find detailed information about how your data is handled.
Recording your input data on server logfiles
You can visit our websites without providing any personal data. We only record data in so-called server logfiles, such as the name of the file accessed, the date and time of access, the data volume transferred and the requesting provider. This data will only be used to ensure the proper functioning of the page and to improve our service, but cannot be traced back to you.
Data collection and utilisation for contract administration purposes and for opening a customer account
We collect personal data when it is freely provided by you within the context of placing an order, making contact with us (e.g. via the contact form or by e-mail) or when opening a customer account. The specific data gathered is that provided on the various information forms. We use the data provided by you for contract administration purposes and to process your queries. Once the contract has been processed in full or your customer account has been deleted, your data is blocked to prevent any further utilisation and will be deleted on expiry of the mandatory retention periods set out in fiscal and commercial regulations, provided you have not expressly agreed to the further use of your data or we retain the right to further exploit your data in accordance with the law, of which we are obliged to inform you. You may cancel your customer account at any time via the contact facility set out below or via the function provided for this purpose within your customer account.
Data transfer for contract completion purposes
For the fulfilment of contract, we will transfer your data to the shipping company commissioned with delivery if necessary for the delivery of ordered goods. Depending on the payment service provider selected during the order process, we will pass on the payment data required for payment to the financial institution and possibly the payment service provider commissioned by us or the payment service provider selected by you. In part, the selected payment service providers may collect the data directly should you open an account with them. In such a case, you will have to register with your login data of the payment service provider during the order process. The data protection declaration of each respective payment service provider shall apply in such cases.
To provide the best possible service, requests for quotations (via the online form/online shop) and enquiries are processed and contacts made by the appropriate regional sister, subsidiary or distribution company of maxon motor ag, depending on the country of origin of the user. You will find a list of these companies under the heading "maxon motor worldwide". Apart from this, no personal data will be forwarded to any third parties. Any statutory obligation of disclosure is, however, reserved.
