III. General data processing information

The protection of your personal data is very important to us. We process your data primarily to provide a working and easy-to-use website. Your data will always be processed in accordance with the relevant legal regulations.

We furthermore process your data only if and insofar as this is permitted by statutory provisions. Additional information is available in the following statements.

IV. Provision of the website and creation of logfiles

Every time our website is accessed, our system automatically collects data and information from your computer system. We collect the following data:

  • (1) information about the browser type and version used
  • (2) your operating system
  • (3) your IP address
  • (4) date and time of access
  • (5) websites from which your system reaches our website
  • (6) name of files retrieved or URL
  • (7) data volumes transferred
  • (8) http status code (e.g. “inquiry successful” or “requested file not found”), methods (e.g. “GET” or “POST”), and version (e.g. “HTTP/2.0” or “HTTP/1.1”)

This data is stored in the log files of our system. There is no storage of the aforementioned data together with other personal data.

We use this data to secure our IT systems. Furthermore temporary storage is used for error detection and error prevention. The data will not be used for marketing purposes in this context. The legal basis for the temporary storage of data and the logfiles is Art. 6 para. (1) lit. f) of the European General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”).

The data is stored until it is no longer necessary in relation to the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed. If data is required to deliver the website, the necessity ends when the session ends. Your data will be deleted automatically at the end of the session. If stored in our log files, the data will be erased after seven days at the latest. If the data is stored longer than this, your IP address will be deleted or alienated so it cannot be traced back to you or your internet connection.

The hosting of our website is carried out on our behalf by processors which are acting under our authority and in compliance with GDPR and do not forward your data to third parties without authorization.

V. Font “Avenir”

For our website we use the font “Avenir” provided by the company Monotype GmbH, Horexstraße 30, 61352 Bad Homburg, Berlin branch: Bergmannstraße 102, 10961 Berlin. This ensures that the website looks the same for all visitors, regardless of which device and which browser is used.

For this purpose, your personal data will only be processed by us to deliver the website with all headlines to you and personal data will not be transmitted to a third party. Monotype GmbH tracks the number of views of the fonts on our website as well as our data for contractual purposes.

VI. Use of cookies

Our website uses "cookies". These are text files that are stored on your computer system. It contains a custom string that identifies your browser the next time you visit the site. When you visit our website, a cookie may be stored on your system.

The following sections to no. 1 ("Obligatory or necessary cookies”), to no. 2 (“Functional cookies"), and to no. 3 ("Targeted or marketing cookies") are meant to explain in detail what types of cookies we use and what data is processed.

Unless other erasure periods are listed in the following explanations, the following applies to the retention period regardless of the type and use of cookies:

You have unrestricted control over the use of cookies. They are stored on your computer and the data is transferred from your computer to our page. By default, most browsers are configured to accept cookies. However, changing the browser settings can disable or restrict the use of cookies. Already saved cookies can be deleted at any time. This can also be done automatically by setting your browser accordingly.

If cookies are generally disabled for our website, you may not able to use all features on our website.

The legal basis for the processing for all types of cookies is therefore Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) GDPR.

1. Obligatory or necessary cookies

Obligatory or necessary cookies are cookies that are required for the functionality of the online services. They are, for example, used to enable the execution of the online services, to store previous actions (e.g. text entered if you go back to a page within one session), securely design the online services, and to manage the online services (e.g. prevention of fraud). Without these cookies, online services would not function properly, or the WIRTGEN GROUP would not be able to offer certain services.

Legal basis for the processing of personal data using technically necessary cookies is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR. The data collected using technically necessary cookies is not used to create user profiles.

If you object to the use of these cookies or if you configure your browser accordingly, our website will not recognize your browser and certain content may not be retrievable or data (e.g. from an input field) may be lost.

The obligatory cookies used by us are session cookies that are automatically deleted at the end of the session.

2. Functional Cookies

Functional cookies are cookies that are not necessary for the execution of online services but facilitate the use of online services by storing certain selected options or offering expanded functions. They are, for example, used to store websites headings or options, e.g. the selection of a language or other online settings (e.g. fonts). These cookies and other technologies may be used to provide requested functions, e.g. displaying a video.

Functional cookies also collect information on how online services are used, among other things the pages that are most frequently retrieved, the browser or operating systems that are used, or from which page the users arrive at the online services, whether a product or link is displayed or used, and which error messages have been generated. This information helps us improve the online services, capture the number of visitors, determine patterns of views, rectify problems within the online services, and improve the design for using the online services.

Some analysis and performance cookies are used in connection with services provided by third-party providers, among them:

  • Adobe Analytics is an Internet analysis service by Adobe. Adobe Analytics is used to capture information on your use of online services. The generated data is transmitted to Adobe servers in the US and is stored there. Additional information is available on the Adobe website .

Through the gained statistics we can improve our offer and design it more interesting for you as a user. Legal basis in addition to the consent granted by you within the scope of the cookie consent manager is therefore also our legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR.

The placed cookie is valid for seven days. Non-anonymized log files on our servers are automatically deleted after 7 days.

3. Targeted or marketing cookies

These cookies collect information on your surfing behavior and your online behavior even across different browsers and devices used by you in order to display advertisement in the online services and other visited sites that could be of interest for you. Your surfing behavior in the online services and your activities on other websites can, for example, be used to derive information about you, which is then used to design advertisement that is more relevant to you (frequently referred to as “interest-based advertisement”). They are also used to limit the display frequency of advertisements and determine the efficiency of advertisement campaigns. They store the information that you have visited the online services (including visited pages and links clicked on) and possibly forward this information to other companies, e.g. advertisers and marketing networks. These cookies are usually placed by third parties. Data collected through functional cookies (e.g. analysis and performance cookies) can also in part be used for advertisement purposes.

4. Management of cookies

Click on the button below in order to access the cookie consent manager of the WIRTGEN GROUP. The cookie consent manager is a browser-cookie-based tool through which you can change the settings regarding certain functional, targeted, or advertisement cookies. The settings for obligatory cookies cannot be changed because they are necessary. The tool communicates the chosen setting to the third-party providers, which then initiate an opt-out. The effects of this setting are described in the cookie policy, privacy policy, and/or data forwarding declaration of the third-party provider.

An opt-out cookie is placed in your browser for the technical implementation of your objection. This cookie serves only to allocate your objection. Please note that for technical reasons, an opt-out cookie is effective only in the browser in which it was placed. If you delete the cookies or use another browser or another terminal device, you have to place the opt-out cookie again.

VII. Forms and email contact

We use Silverstripe to create forms. Your transmitted data is stored on our server for 7 days and is then deleted.

https://www.silverstripe.org/

You can contact us through a form on our website or by email. If you enter data in the input fields provided for this purpose, then this data will be transmitted to us and processed by us.

We furthermore process the data that you voluntarily transmit to us.

If you contact us through the provided email address, then the personal data transmitted with your email will be processed (e.g. email address, name, first name, and other voluntary data).

Legal basis for processing the data transmitted is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR as we have a legitimate interest in being able to respond to your message. If contacting through a form or email is connected to the conclusion or performance of a contract, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) GDPR serves as an additional legal basis for processing your data. Insofar as processing of personal data is necessary for the fulfillment of a legal obligation incumbent upon us, the legal basis for this is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c) GDPR.

We process personal data from the input masks or e-mails exclusively for the correspondence with you. We will not forward your personal data to a third party. However, if you have specific questions, your information including your personal data may be forwarded to other WIRTGEN GROUP companies, technical and legal experts, or translators.

You can object to the processing of your personal data by simply sending a message without any requirements as to form to the above-stated contact information.

In these cases, a processing of your message may however not be possible.

If data is required for the fulfillment of a contract or the performance of pre-contractual measures, early deletion may be possible only insofar as contractual or statutory obligations permit such. The respective applicable retention periods must be determined separately for the respective contracts and contractual parties.

When you send your message through the respective form, the following data is additionally stored:

  • (1) date and time of sending

Processing of this data during the sending process is to prevent misuse of the contact form and to ensure the security of our information technology systems. Therefore, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR serves as a legal basis. The personal data additionally collected during the sending process will be deleted after a period of seven days at the latest, unless statutory or contractual purposes permit a longer retention period.

VIII. Hosting and infrastructure provider

For the operation and provision of this website, we have leased servers from Microsoft Azure. These servers meet various certifications, among them ISO 27001. The Microsoft Corporation (One Microsoft Way, Redmond, Washington 98052, USA) is the operator of these servers.

The servers are located in the European Union as well as United States of America. Insofar as personal data of EU citizens is transferred to computer centers outside of the European Union, these computer centers meet the same level of protection on the basis of the Privacy Shield or standard contractual clauses.

IX. Newsletter

You can subscribe to our gratuitous newsletter. For this purpose, we process the following data:

After subscribing, you will receive an email in which we request your confirmation of your subscription. This confirmation is necessary so that nobody can register with foreign email addresses.

Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) GDPR and Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR serve as a legal basis because the processing of data is also necessary to deliver the requested newsletter.

Data will not be forwarded to third parties within the scope of data processing for sending newsletters. The data is used exclusively for sending the newsletter. However, newsletters are send on our behalf by processors in terms of Art. 28 GDPR, which pursuant to Art. 4 No. 10 GDPR are not “third parties” in terms of GDPR.

You are authorized to cancel subscription of the newsletter at any time. Each newsletter contains a corresponding link to unsubscribe. With this we simultaneously enable you to revoke your consent to storage of your data. You can also revoke your consent at any time without requirements as to form to the above stated contact information.

Newsletter subscriptions will be recorded in order to verify that the subscription process meets legal requirements. This includes storage of the time of registration and confirmation as well as your IP address. This personal data collected within the scope of the subscription process is generally deleted 7 days after collection.

You can address your withdrawal at any time, without requirements as regards form, to the above-stated contact information or the processor responsible for your job application. However, a processing of your application may then no longer be possible.

XI. Compliance Hotline

1. For what purposes is the Compliance Hotline operated?

Section 301 (4) of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX) requires the establishment of a whistle-blower system. The German Corporate Governance Code (Section 4.1.3) also recommends the establishment of whistleblower systems. Regardless of these statutory requirements, whistleblower systems are also generally considered a suitable component of effective compliance management systems (CMS), since they provide a protected space where employees and third parties can report compliance violations. The Compliance Hotline is such a whistleblower system.

2. On what legal basis do we process your data?

  • We process the data in order to detect compliance violations and criminal offenses (e.g. for the prevention of corruption) on the basis of points (d) and (f) of Art. 6(1) GDPR and/or Section 4 para. 1 sentence 1 no. 1 BDSG [German Federal Data Protection Act].
  • Therefore, we use the Compliance Hotline to pursue our legitimate interests in the con-text of the performance of the employment relationship and for the investigation of criminal offenses; cf. Sec. 26 GDPR.
  • Under the conditions of Article 88(1) GDPR and Section 26 para. 1 sentence 2 BDSG, it is permissible to collect, process and use employee data through whistleblower systems.

3. Who is involved in the processing of my data?

The following parties are involved in the processing of your data:

  • WIRTGEN GROUP Branch of John Deere GmbH & CO. KG, Reinhard-Wirtgen-Straße 2, 53578 Windhagen, Germany
  • Deere & Company, One John Deere Place, Moline, IL 61265, United States
  • NAVEX Global, 5500 Meadows Road, Suite 500, Lake Oswego, OR 97035, United States (Hotline provider)

If necessary, data is disclosed to:

  • internal departments such as Management and Legal & Compliance
  • law enforcement and administrative agencies, courts and lawyers.
  • To investigate your request, information, including your personal data, may be disclosed to other WIRTGEN GROUP companies, technical and legal experts or translators for the above-mentioned purposes.

4. Is the data transferred to a third country?

The data is transferred to the parent company's Center for Global Business Conduct and the service provider, both of which are located in the United States. However, WIRTGEN GROUP has taken precautions to ensure the protection of your data.

5. Which data must and/or may be provided and what happens to it?

Information is provided at the whistleblower’s discretion, which is why it is not possible to determine the precise categories of personal data independently from the individual case.

XII. RSS Feeds

You can subscribe to our RSS Feeds and receive relevant news on our business. Our posts and articles are being shown in your feed reader. Unlike newsletters this does not require processing of your personal data. If you like to learn more about processing of your data using RSS Feeds please contact the operator of your feed reader.

This is done regardless of whether Google provides a user account through which you are logged in or do not have a user account. If you are logged in to Google, your data will be assigned directly to your account. If you do not wish the association with your Google profile, you will need to log out beforehand. Google stores your data as user profiles and uses it for the purpose of marketing, market research, and/or appropriate design of its website.

Personal Data Complaint Form

If you have a concern or complaint about the handling of your personal information, please complete the following:

Privacy Policy Facebook

I. General Information

Fan pages are user accounts that can be set up on Facebook by individuals or businesses. We use the platform maintained by Facebook to present ourselves to you and other users of this social network and site visitors, as well as to introduce comments of all kinds to the media and opinion market.

The current version of this Privacy Policy is available under "Data protection" on our Facebook page.


II. Data processing by Wirtgen

If you have a Facebook account, are logged in and choose to follow our page, you will be shown to use as a "follower". We therefore process the personal data contained in your profile name and your profile picture.

We process the same data if you mark, comment on or share a post with "Like", even if you do not follow our page.

We also process the same data if you send us a message using the contact function. We also process the data that you voluntarily transmit to us in your messages.

In addition, the "Facebook Insight" feature, an indispensable Facebook service, provides us with anonymized statistical information about the users of these pages. These data are collected with the help of socalled "cookies", which Facebook stores on your system. Each of these cookies contains a unique user code that is active for two years and may also be linked to your profile on the platform.

The legal basis for this processing by us in these cases is our legitimate interest pursuant to Article 6 (1) point (f) GDPR. For more information about data processing by Facebook and cookies used by Facebook refer to Section III.

There is no further evaluation of your data by us. We store your data for as long as you follow our page. If you no longer follow our page, we will stop processing your data.

We erase data from messages once the correspondence with you is finished. This is the case where it is apparent from the circumstances that the facts in question have been finally clarified.


III. Data processing by Facebook

When you visit our Facebook page, Facebook collects your IP address and other information stored on your PC in the form of cookies. This information is used to provide us, as the operator of the Facebook pages, with anonymous statistical information about the use of the Facebook page. More information about this is available on Facebook using the following link:

https://www.facebook.com/help/pages/insights

The data collected about you in this context is processed by Facebook Ltd. and may be transferred to countries outside the European Union. In its data use guidelines, Facebook describes in general terms the information it receives and how it is used. It also includes information on how to contact Facebook and on setting options for advertisements. The data usage guidelines are available at the following link:

https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy

For the complete Facebook data guidelines go to:

https://www.facebook.com/full_data_use_policy

Facebook does not conclusively and clearly disclose and we do not know how Facebook uses the data from visits to Facebook pages for its own purposes, to what extent activities on the Facebook page are assigned to individual users, how long Facebook stores such data and whether data from a visit to the Facebook page are passed on to third parties. Similarly, we also do not know to what extent your data are used for other Facebook products (Instagram, Messenger and other Facebook products and features).

When accessing a Facebook page, the IP address assigned to your terminal is transmitted to Face-book. According to Facebook, this IP address is anonymized (for "German" IP addresses) and will be deleted after 90 days. In addition, Facebook stores information about its users' terminals (e.g. as part of the "registration notification" function). Facebook therefore may be able to attribute IP addresses to individual users.

If you are currently logged on to Facebook as a user, there is a cookie with your Facebook identification on your terminal. This enables Facebook to understand that you have visited this page and how you have used it. This also applies to all other Facebook pages. Facebook buttons embedded in web pages allow Facebook to track your visits to these web pages and attribute them to your Facebook profile. This data can be used to offer personalized content or advertising.

If you would like to prevent this, you should log out of Facebook or deactivate the function "stay logged in", delete the cookies on your device and close and restart your browser. In this way, Face-book information will be deleted that may be used to directly identify you. This enables you to use our Facebook page without disclosing your Facebook ID. When you access interactive features of the page (like, comment, share, news, etc.), a Facebook login screen will appear. If you log in, Facebook again can recognize you as a specific user.

For information on how to manage or delete existing information about you, go to the following Facebook support pages:

Privacy Policy Twitter

I. General Information

Twitter profiles are user accounts that can be set up on Twitter by individuals or businesses. We use the platform maintained by Twitter to present ourselves to you and other users of this social network and site visitors, as well as to introduce comments of all kinds to the media and opinion market.

The current version of this Privacy Policy is available under "Data protection" on our Twitter page.


II. Data processing by Wirtgen

If you have a Twitter account, are logged in and choose to follow our page, you will be shown to us as a "follower". We therefore process the personal data contained in your profile name and your profile picture.

We process the same data if you mark, comment on or share a post with "Like", even if you do not follow our page.

We also process the same data if you send us a message using the contact function. We also pro-cess the data that you voluntarily transmit to us in your messages.

In addition, Twitter provides us with anonymous statistical data on the users of our pages. These data are collected with the help of so-called "cookies", and "pixels" which Twitter stores on your system or incorporates in web sites. These tools allow Twitter to identify your browser with a unique user code, which may also be linked to your profile on the platform.

The legal basis for this processing by us in these cases is our legitimate interest pursuant to Article 6 (1) point (f) GDPR.

For more information about data processing by Twitter and cookies used by Twitter refer to Section III.

There is no further evaluation of your data by us. We store your data for as long as you follow our page. If you no longer follow our page, we will stop processing your data.

We erase data from messages once the correspondence with you is finished. This is the case where it is apparent from the circumstances that the facts in question have been finally clarified.


III. Data processing by Twitter

When you view Twitter content or Twitter products, Twitter records your visit, including the respective page, IP address, browser type, operating system, and cookie information. Twitter uses this infor-mation to improve products and services, for example through personalized suggestions and personalized ads. You can read about what information Twitter collects and how it is protected in the Privacy Policy and in the article on the use of Twitter cookies:

Privacy Policy: https://twitter.com/de/privacy

Use of cookies: https://help.twitter.com/en/rules-and-policies/twitter-cookies

To protect your privacy, Twitter never associates your browser history with your name, email address, phone number or Twitter username, and deletes, obscures or aggregates the data after a maximum of 30 days, as explained in Twitter's Privacy Policy. The browser history is not stored for sites that have this collection disabled (as described below), or that have specific domains, such as .mil and .gov. You and the operators of the websites you visit can also decide for yourself whether Twitter can store the data and how they may be used.

To control whether Twitter stores information about other websites where you view Twitter content, you can change the "Track where you see Twitter content across the web" setting in your "Personali-zation and Data" settings. If you have deactivated this setting or if you are in the European Union or EFTA countries, Twitter does not store or use these website visits. If you have previously saved your browser history, your Twitter usage may still be personalized based on this information.

If you do not want Twitter to serve you customized, interest-based ads within and outside the Twitter offering, there are several ways to disable this feature:

  • In Twitter settings, call up the "Personalization and Data" settings and select the "Personalized ads" setting.
  • If you are using a mobile device, you can activate the "Limit Ad Tracking" (iOS) or "Opt out of Ads Personalization" (Android) setting on your device.

To control personalization across devices on Twitter, visit your Personalization and data settings and adjust the "Personalize across all your devices" setting. This will control whether Twitter links your account to browsers or devices other than the ones you use to log into Twitter (or if you’re logged out, whether Twitter links the browser or device you’re currently using to any other browsers or devices).

If you are on the web, you can also opt out of Google Analytics by installing Google’s opt-out browser add-on . You can opt out of interest-based Google ads using Google’s Ads Settings .

To control cookies, you can modify your settings in most web browsers to accept or deny cookies or to request your permission each time a site attempts to set a cookie. Although cookies are not required for some parts of our services, Twitter and the Periscope app may not work properly if you disable cookies entirely. For example, you cannot log into twitter.com or pscp.tv if you've disabled all cookie use.
