AktG (German Stock Corporation Act) (in the following referred to as BLG LOGISTICS GROUP AG & Co. KG). BLG LOGISTICS GROUP AG & Co. KG does not recognize contradictory conditions unless expressly agreed otherwise in writing.
Generally, the website can be used without disclosing personal data. If website pages collect personal data (e.g. name, address or e-mail address), this occurs as far as possible on a voluntary basis. We do not pass this data on to third parties without your express consent.
BLG LOGISTICS GROUP AG & Co. KG draws your attention to the fact that data transfer via the internet (e.g. communication by e-mail) may involve security risks. It is not possible to seamlessly protect data from access by third parties.
These conditions apply for all components and contents of the online offering of the BLG LOGISTICS GROUP AG & Co. KG website.
2. Access data/ server logfiles
BLG LOGISTICS GROUP AG & Co. KG (or our webspace provider) collects data on every access to the website (so-called server logfiles). The access data includes:

- Data volume transferred
- Notification of successful access
- Browser type and version
- Operating system of the user

If you contact us by e-mail or via a contact form, we save and process your inquiry including all the personal data derived from it (name, inquiry) for the purpose of processing your request. We only pass this data on to third parties without your consent if this is necessary for the fulfillment of your inquiry. We process your data on the basis of Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR if your inquiry concerns the fulfillment of a contract or is necessary for the performance of pre-contractual actions. In all other cases, processing is based on our legitimate interest in the effective processing of inquiries addressed to us on the basis of Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR or on your consent according to Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR, if we have requested it. We store the data you send us with your contact inquiry until you request its erasure, revoke your consent to its storage, or the purpose of the data storage no longer exists (e.g. after we have completed processing your inquiry). Mandatory legal provisions – especially statutory retention periods – remain unaffected
4. Incorporation of third-party services and content
This website may contain content from third parties such as videos from Vimeo, maps from Google Maps, feeds or graphics from other websites. This always requires that the parties offering this content (in the following "third-party providers") have access to the user's IP address. Without the IP address, they can not provide the contents to the browser of the individual user. Therefore, the IP address is necessary for the display of the content. BLG LOGISTICS GROUP AG & Co. KG makes every effort to ensure it only uses content from providers who use the IP address exclusively to provide the content. However, we have no influence over whether the third-party provider saves the IP address e.g. for statistical purposes. If we are aware of this fact, we inform you. You can go to the consent management platform (CMP) to define which services may collect your data.

6.3.1 Google Tag Manager
We use Google Tag Manager from Google Inc. Google Ireland Limited (Gordon House, Barrow Street Dublin 4, Ireland) is responsible for all Google services in Europe.
Google Tag Manager is an organization tool we use to manage website tags centrally via a user interface. Tags are small code segments that e.g. track your activities on our website. The tags often come from Google products such as Google Ads or Google Analytics, however the tool can also install and manage tags from other companies. Tags have various functions. They can collect browser data, feed data into marketing tools, set buttons, install cookies and track users across several websites.
We have chosen the settings of the Tag Manager so that Google only receives anonymized data from us. However, this only applies to the operation and use of our Tag Manager. We allow Google and other companies to receive selected data in anonymized form. Google combines the data with hundreds of other anonymous website data sets and uses benchmarking techniques to identify user trends. Benchmarking means that our results are compared with those of competitors. The information collected can be used to optimize processes.
Google stores the data on its own servers. The servers are located around the world, although most of them are in the USA.
We have agreed standard contractual clauses with Google that provide the legal basis for the correct and secure transfer of personal data. Find out more about Google Tag Manager here https://www.google.com/intl/de/tagmanager/faq.html.
