III. General 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.

IV. Content Delivery and Logfiles

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

  • information about the browser type and version used
  • your operating system
  • your IP address
  • date and time of access
  • websites from which your system reaches our website
  • websites accessed from your system through our website

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

It is necessary that our system temporarily stores your IP address so that the website can be delivered to your computer. The legal basis for the temporary storage of the data and log files is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR. The legitimate interest lies in the fact that we can improve the functionality and optimization of the website as well as 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 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. They implement appropriate technical and organizational measures in such a manner that processing will meet the requirements of the GDPR and ensure the protection of your rights.

V. Font “Avenir”

For the headings on 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. 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, you may not able to use all features on our website.

When you visit our website, you will be informed about the above mentioned use of cookies and referred to a Privacy Policy by a cookie consent banner. We ask for your consent to the use of cookies, which you declare by clicking on the "Accept" button. The legal basis for the processing for all types of cookies is therefore Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) GDPR.

The following sections to no. 1 ("Functional cookies") and to no. 2 ("Analytical Cookies") are meant to explain in detail what types of cookies we use and what data is processed.

1. Functional Cookies

Legal basis for the use of technically necessary cookies is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR. The website would not be fully usable without placing these cookies and a large number of services could not be offered. The user data collected by functional cookies is not used to create user profiles.

Functional cookies cannot be manually deactivated via our website. However, you have the option of using your browser settings to specify that cookies should generally be rejected. Please note that in this case some functions of the website will not be available.

As well as your legal consent from the cookie banner, an additional legal basis for processing personal data is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest lies in the analysis and optimization of our website. However, we use Matomo with the anonymization feature "Automatically Anonymize Visitor IPs". This anonymization feature shortens your IP address by two bytes so that it is not possible to assign it to you or to the internet connection you are using.

If you do not agree to this processing you have the option of preventing the storage of the cookie by setting it in your internet browser. You will find more detailed information on this under "Cookies" above.

In addition, you have the option of terminating the analysis of your user behavior by opting out.

III. 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.

IV. Data processing by Wirtgen Group

If you have a Facebook 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 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 so-called "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 V.

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.

V. 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 Facebook. 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, Facebook 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.

III. 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.

IV. Data processing by Wirtgen Group

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 process 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 incorpo-rates 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 V.

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.

V. 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 information to im-prove 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/en/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 "Personalization 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.

VI. Your rights

Below, we will summarize your rights under the General Data Protection Regulation.

1. Right to withdraw declaration of consent under data protection law (Article 7 (3) GDPR)

You have the right to withdraw your consent at any time. The withdrawal of consent will not affect the law-fulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal. Prior to giving consent, you will be informed thereof.

2. Right of access (Article 15 GDPR)

According to Article 15 GDPR you have the right to obtain confirmation from us as to whether or not we process any personal data concerning you. Where that is the case, you have the right to access to the personal data and the following information:

  • the purposes of the processing;
  • the categories of personal data concerned;
  • to whom the personal data have been or will be disclosed, in particular recipients in third countries or international organizations;
  • where possible, the envisaged period for which the personal data will be stored, or if that is not possi-ble, the criteria used to determine that period;
  • the existence of the right to request rectification or erasure or restriction of processing of personal data concerning you or to object to such processing by us;

Where personal data are transferred to a third country or to an international organization, you have the right to be informed of the appropriate safeguards to ensure that the provisions of the GDPR are complied with by those recipients as well.

3. Right to rectification (Article 16 GDPR)

You have the right to obtain from us without undue delay the rectification of inaccurate personal data con-cerning you. Taking into account the purposes of the processing, you have the right to have incomplete personal data completed, including by means of providing a supplementary statement.

4. Right to erasure or "right to be forgotten" (Article 17 GDPR)

You have the right to obtain from us the erasure of data where one of the following grounds applies:

  • The data are no longer necessary in relation to the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed.
  • You withdraw consent on which the processing is based and there is no other legal ground for the pro-cessing.
  • You object, on grounds relating to your particular situation, to processing pursuant to Article 21 (1) GDPR and there are no compelling legitimate grounds for the processing.

Where we have made your data public and are obliged to erase them, we, taking account of available tech-nology and the cost of implementation, will take reasonable steps to inform controllers that you have re-quested the erasure.

5. Right to restriction of processing (Article 18 GDPR)

According to Article 18 GDPR, we may process data only with restrictions of processing where one of the following applies: This is the case, where

  • you contest the accuracy of your data, for a period enabling us to verify the accuracy;
  • the processing is unlawful and you oppose the erasure of your data and request the restriction of their use instead;
  • we no longer need the data for the purposes of the processing, but they are required by you for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims; or
  • you object to the processing pursuant to Article 21 (1) GDPR, on grounds relating to your particular situation, pending the verification whether our legitimate grounds override yours.

Where processing has been restricted, we may only store such data. Any further processing will be permit-ted only with your consent or for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of important public interest of the Union or of a Member State.

You may withdraw your consent given in this context at any time.

You will be informed by us before the restriction of processing is lifted.

6. Notification obligation (Article 19 GDPR)

We are required to communicate any rectification or erasure of your data or restriction of processing to each recipient to whom your data have been disclosed. This does not apply if it proves impossible or in-volves disproportionate effort. We will inform your about those recipients if you request it.

7. Right to data portability (Article 20 GDPR)

You have the right to receive the data concerning you, which you have provided to us, in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format. You have the right to have us transmit those data to a third party, where:

  • the processing is based on consent or on a contract; and
  • processing is carried out by automated means.

You have the right to request that your data are transmitted directly from us to the third party, where technically feasible. This right must not adversely affect the rights and freedoms of others.

8. Automated individual decision-making, including profiling (Article 22 GDPR)

We do not subject your personal data to any processing based solely on automated processing, including profiling.

9. Right to object (Article 21 GDPR)

You have the right to object, on grounds relating to your particular situation, where we process your data for the purposes of legitimate interests (Article 6 (1) point (f) GDPR). This also includes profiling based on that provision. In this case we will no longer process your data unless we demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing. Such grounds must override your interests, rights and freedoms or processing is used for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims.

Where your data are processed for direct marketing purposes, you have the right to object to processing of the data. This also includes profiling to the extent that it is related to such direct marketing.

Where you object, your data will no longer be processed for such purposes.

If you wish to object, simply send an informal message to the contact details listed under II.

10. Right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority (Article 77 GDPR)

You have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of your habitual residence, place of work or place of the alleged infringement if you consider that the pro-cessing of personal data relating to you infringes the General Data Protection Regulation.

V. Data processing by YouTube/Google

When you visit our YouTube/Google page, YouTube/Google collects data in order to provide better ser-vices to all our users - from identifying basic information such as your IP address and language, to more complex things, such as

  • advertising that you find particularly useful,
  • people you deal with online most often, or the
  • YouTube videos you find interesting.

What information YouTube/Google collects and how it is used depends on how you use these services and how you manage your privacy settings.

If you are not logged into a YouTube/Google account, YouTube/Google stores the information collected from that account with unique identifiers associated with the browser, app, or device you are using. This allows YouTube/Google, for example, to ensure that your language settings are maintained in all browser sessions.

If you are signed in to a Google Account, YouTube/Google also collects information that the company stores in your YouTube/Google account.

When you create a YouTube/Google account, you provide YouTube/Google with personal data, including your name and password. You can also add a phone number or payment information to your account. Even if you are not signed in to a Google account, you can still provide YouTube/Google with data, such as an e-mail address, to receive notifications about their services.

YouTube/Google also collects the content that you create, upload, or receive from others while using our services. This includes, for example, e-mails you write and receive, photos and videos you store, docu-ments and spreadsheets you create, and comments you write about YouTube videos.

Privacy Policy for Photography and Recording Videos at Trade Shows

1. Name and Contact Details of the Controller and Privacy Officer
2. Purpose and Legal Basis of Data Processing
3. Recipients and Data Processing in Third Countries
4. Posting on Social Networks
5. Duration of Storage
6. Your Rights as a Data Subject

As part of our activities at trade shows, the WIRTGEN GROUP produces photos and videos for visual documentation and communications. Since we cannot completely rule out the possibility that it may be possible to identify you directly or indirectly in such photos or videos, these photos and videos represent personal data within the terms of the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

As such, we would like to provide you with the following information about how your personal data is processed in connection with photos/videos shot at our trade show booth and about your rights as a data subject.

We may provide you with further privacy policies in other situations in which we contact you or process your data, and you should also take note of these.

1. Name and Contact Details of the Controller and Privacy Officer

WIRTGEN GROUP Branch of John Deere GmbH & Co. KG (hereinafter referred to as “we” or the “WIRTGEN GROUP”), Reinhard-Wirtgen-Strasse 2, 53578 Windhagen, Germany, Phone: +49-26-45-131-0, Fax: +49-26-45-131-392, E-mail: info@wirtgen-group.com, Website: www.wirtgen-group.com, Legal Information: www.wirtgen-group.com/de/service/impressum/

You can contact our privacy officer by e-mail at datenschutz@wirtgen-group.com or by postal mail by adding “The Privacy Officer” to our mailing address.

2. Purpose and Legal Basis of Data Processing

Taking photographs and recording videos of our trade show booth and activities for PR and advertising purposes may also involve the processing and publication of your personal data, in particular photos and videos of you.

We generally only take portraits or close-ups of you if you have given us or the photographer we have hired your consent to do so, which can also take the form of behaving in a manner that clearly expresses such consent (e.g. smiling into the camera). In this respect, the legal basis is normally your consent (Article 6(1)(a) of the GDPR), whereby in individual cases such photos can also be taken on the basis of our legitimate interests in documenting our events and carrying out associated public relations activities (Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR). You can withdraw your consent at any time without specifying any reasons (the withdrawal of consent does not affect the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal, however) or object to the associated processing (see section 6 below).

In addition, we also take photos that provide an overview of our booth as well as group photos that do not include a portrait or close-up of any specific individual. Doing so is primarily based on our legitimate interest in documenting our events and carrying out associated public relations activities (Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR). If you have any issues with us taking such overview or group photographs that include your likeness, you may object to our doing so (see section 6 below). We will then review on an individual basis whether your legitimate interests as a data subject outweigh our interests. We will normally accept your objection – unless the WIRTGEN GROUP has overriding business interests – and remove the photographs in question that contain your likeness and not use them in the future.

The production of photos/videos is also generally not prohibited due to the fact that your ethnic background, religion, or health (e.g. skin color, headwear, glasses) may be discernible. Under no circumstances, however, do we process the photos/videos in order to specifically obtain such information. In particular, we will not perform any automated scans to find such information.

The WIRTGEN GROUP would like to point out that photos/videos posted on the Internet and in social networks can be accessed worldwide and found using search engines. As such, the possibility exists that the photographs and videos may be distributed and used by third parties that the WIRTGEN GROUP has no control over.

3. Recipients and Data Processing in Third Countries

We will only transfer your personal data to external third parties if this is necessary to protect our legitimate interests, if another legal basis exists, or if we have your consent to do so. External recipients may, in particular, include service providers (e.g. hosting providers or photo/video studios) or subsidiaries of the WIRTGEN GROUP or of Deere & Company, John Deere Place, Moline, Illinois, 61265, USA. We carefully select and regularly review all processors (e.g. photographers); they are only authorized to use the data for the specified purposes and in accordance with our instructions on the basis of a Data Processing Agreement pursuant to Article 28 of the GDPR.

If data is transferred to recipients whose registered office or location for data processing is not located in a member state of the European Union (EU) or in another nation party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area (EEA), we will ensure that, prior to the transfer, the recipient maintains an adequate level of privacy or you have granted your consent to the data transfer, except in exceptional cases permitted by law.

4. Posting on Social Networks

If photographs or videos are posted to the pages of the WIRTGEN GROUP and its affiliated companies on social networks, they may be transmitted to a country outside the EU/EEA, in particular to the United States. The social networks we use and their parent companies listed below are certified in accordance with the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Agreement and are therefore obligated to comply with the provisions of the GDPR.

We do not have any control over the use of your data by these social networks, however. We can neither determine nor influence the extent to which, where, and for how long the data will be stored, to what extent any existing obligations to delete such data will be fulfilled, what analyses of the data will be conducted and links to the data will be created, and to whom the data will be transfered. Details about the providers of the social networks we use and about how they process data can be found in the following information:

5. Duration of Storage

We store your personal data for a period of 3 years.

We will delete your personal data prior to the end of this period if we are required to do so by law.

In the event of an objection, we will no longer process your personal data unless further processing is permitted or even mandatory according to the applicable legal provisions (e.g. within the framework of our obligations to retain data under commercial and tax law). We will normally accept your objection – unless the we have overriding business interests – and remove the photographs in question that contain your likeness and not use them in the future.

6. Your Rights as a Data Subject

You have numerous rights as a data subject, including but not limited to the following:

  • Right of access (Article 15 of the GDPR; Section 34 of Germany’s Federal Data Protection Act)
  • Right to rectification (Article 16 of the GDPR)
  • Right to erasure (Article 17 of the GDPR; Section 35 of Germany’s Federal Data Protection Act)
  • Right to restriction of processing (Article 18 of the GDPR)
  • Right to data portability (Article 20 of the GDPR)
  • Right to Object to Data Processing on the Basis of Legitimate Interests (Article 21 of the GDPR): You have the right to object, on grounds relating to your particular situation, at any time to processing of personal data concerning you which is based on our legitimate interests as defined in Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR. If you make such an objection, we will cease to process your personal information unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights, and freedoms, or the processing is for the establishment, exercise, or defense of legal claims.

Furthermore, you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time. The withdrawal of consent does not affect the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal (Article 7(3) of the GDPR).

Last but not least, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority (Article 77 of the GDPR). The supervisory authority responsible for the WIRTGEN GROUP is: The Rhineland-Palatinate State Commissioner for Data Protection and Freedom of Information, Dr. Dieter Kugelmann, Hintere Bleiche 34, 55116 Mainz, Germany, Phone: +49-6131-208-2449, Fax: +49-6131-208-2497, E-mail: poststelle@datenschutz.rlp.de, Website: www.datenschutz.rlp.de.

To exercise any of the aforementioned rights, please contact us by e-mail at datenschutz@wirtgen-group.com or by postal mail at the address specified in section 1 above.
