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

Internet usage conditions of the BLG LOGISTICS GROUP AG & Co. KG

1. General use

Use of and access to the website of BLG LOGISTICS GROUP AG & Co. KG and the websites of enterprises affiliated to same within the meaning of Art. 15 et seq. AktG (Stock Corporation Act) (hereinafter BLG LOGISTICS GROUP AG & Co. KG) are subject to the conditions set forth below.

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 Information or elsewhere 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)
