Data Protection Notice of BLG LOGISTICS GROUP AG & Co. KG

 

1. General use

Use of and access to the BLG LOGISTICS GROUP AG & Co. KG website is subject to the following conditions. BLG LOGISTICS GROUP AG & Co. KG does not recognize any conflicting conditions unless expressly agreed to in writing.

It is generally possible to use the website without the provision of personal data. Where personal data are collected on any website pages (e.g. name, address or e-mail address) they are always, as far as possible, provided on a voluntary basis. These data are not passed on to third parties without your express consent.

BLG LOGISTICS GROUP AG & Co. KG wishes to point out that the transmission of data over the Internet (e.g. when communicating by e-mail) may be subject to security breaches. It is not possible to completely secure the data from access by third parties.

Use by third parties of contact data published in the mandatory Legal Notice for sending advertising and information materials not explicitly requested is herewith expressly prohibited. BLG LOGISTICS GROUP AG & Co. KG expressly reserves the right to take legal steps if such unsolicited advertising information is sent, such as in the case of spam e-mails.

These terms and conditions apply to all components and content of the online offering of the website of BLG LOGISTICS GROUP AG & Co. KG.

2. Access data/ server log files

BLG LOGISTICS GROUP AG & Co. KG (or its web space provider) collects data on each access to the site (by means of so-called server log files). The access data include:

Name of website or file accessed, date and time of the access, volume of data transferred, notification of successful access, browser type and version, the user's operating system, the referrer URL (the page visited previously), IP address and the requesting provider.

BLG LOGISTICS GROUP AG & Co. KG shall use the log data only for statistical analyses for the purpose of the site’s operation, security and optimization. BLG LOGISTICS GROUP AG & Co. KG, however, reserves the right to review the log data subsequently if there are specific indications that justify a suspicion of illegal use.

3. Embedding of third-party services and content

Third-party content, such as YouTube videos, material provided by Google Maps, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites may be embedded in this website. The prerequisite for this is always that the provider of this content (hereinafter referred to as “Third-Party Provider”) sees the IP address of the user as these providers would not be able to send the content to the respective user’s browser without the IP address. The IP address is therefore required so that this content can be provided. BLG LOGISTICS GROUP AG & Co. KG endeavors to only use content from providers who use the IP address merely to provide the content. However, we have no control over whether the Third-Party Provider stores the IP address, e.g. for statistical purposes. We shall inform users thereof to the extent that we are aware of such a practice.

4. Cookies

Cookies are small files that make it possible to store specific device-related information on the user’s device (PC, smartphone, etc). Cookies are used to make websites user-friendly for users (e.g. storing of login data). Cookies are also used to record the statistical data concerning use of the website and to analyze the data to improve the site. Users can control the use of cookies. Most browsers have an option allowing cookies to be stored on a limited basis or to be completely blocked. However, it must be noted that the use, and in particular the ease of use, of the website may be restricted without cookies.

You can manage many online advertising cookies from companies via the US website (Link) or the EU website (Link) .

5. Google Analytics

This website uses Google analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc (“Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies” (see above). The information regarding the use of this website generated by the cookies is generally transmitted to and stored on a Google server in the US.

If IP anonymization is activated on this website, the IP addresses of Google users in member states of the European Union or in other countries which are parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area are shortened prior to transmission. Only in exceptional cases are full IP addresses first transmitted to a Google server in the US and shortened there. IP anonymization is active on this website. Google will use this information on behalf of the operator of this website in order to evaluate users’ use of the website, compile reports on website activities and provide other services related to the use of the website and the Internet to the website operator.

The IP address provided by your browser in the context of Google Analytics is not combined with other data from Google. Users may prevent the storage of cookies by changing a relevant setting in their browsers. This site, however, wishes to point out to users that, in this case, not all the functions of this website may be used in full. In addition, users can prevent the data recorded by the generated cookie relating to the use of the website (incl. their IP address) from being transmitted to and processed by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available under the following link: (Link)

As an alternative to the browser add-on or in browsers on mobile devices, click on Link, to prevent Google Analytics from recording your data in this website in the future. An opt-out cookie will be placed on your device. If you delete your cookies, you will need to click on this link again.

6. Google+

This site uses the “+1” button of the social network Google Plus, which is operated by Google Inc. (“Google”).

If a user accesses a page of this website that has such a button the browser will establish a direct connection with Google’s servers. Google will directly transmit the “+1” button content to the user’s browser, where it is then embedded into the web page. The provider therefore has no control of the extent of data that Google collects via this button. Google states that it does not collect any personal data of users that do not click on the button. These data, including the IP address, are only collected and processed from members who are logged in.

The purpose and scope of data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Google, including all associated rights and settings for protecting user privacy, can be found in Google’s “+1” button privacy policy: (Link) and in the FAQs: (Link).

7. Facebook

This site uses social plugins (“Plugins”) of the social network Facebook.com operated by Facebook Inc. (“Facebook”).

If a user accesses a page of this website that has such a plugin, the browser will establish a direct connection with Facebook’s servers. Facebook will transmit the content of the Plugin directly to your browser and embed it in the web page. The provider therefore has no control over the extent of data that Facebook collects via this Plugin and therefore informs users of its current state of knowledge:

Embedding the Plugin allows Facebook to receive information that a user has visited the website page in question. If the user is logged into Facebook, Facebook can assign the visit to the user's Facebook account. When users interact with the Plugins, e.g. by clicking on the Like button or posting a comment, their browser directly transmits this information to Facebook where it is saved. If a user does not have a Facebook account it is still possible for Facebook to determine and store the IP address. Facebook states that it only stores an anonymized IP address in Germany.

The purpose and scope of data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Facebook, including the associated rights and settings for protecting user privacy, can be found in Facebook’s privacy policy: (Link).

If a user has a Facebook account and does not want Facebook to collect their data via this site and link it to the data the user has stored in Facebook, the user must log out from Facebook before visiting our website.

8. Twitter

This website uses buttons from the Twitter service. These buttons are offered by Twitter Inc. (“Twitter”). They can be recognized by terms such as “Twitter” or “Follow”, which are embedded in and recognizable by a stylized image of a bird. These buttons make it possible to share an article or a page from this site on Twitter or to follow the provider on Twitter.

If a user accesses a page of this website that has such a button the browser will establish a direct connection with Twitter’s servers. Twitter will transmit the content of the Twitter buttons directly to the user’s browser. The provider therefore has no control over the extent of data that Twitter collects via this plugin and informs users of its current state of knowledge. According to this knowledge, only the user’s IP address of the respective website when the button is clicked is transmitted but only used for the purpose represented by the button.
Further information in this regard can be found in Twitter's data privacy notice at (Link).

9. Information, deletion, block

You have the right, at any time, to obtain information free of charge concerning your stored personal data, the origin and recipients thereof, the purpose of data processing as well as the right to have the data changed, blocked or deleted. Please do not hesitate to contact us at the website operator’s address provided in the Legal Notice at any time if you have any questions concerning same or if you have further questions regarding your personal data.
