Data privacy

DEKRA appreciates your visit to our website and your interest in our project.
The protection of your privacy in the processing of personal data and the security of all business data is an essential concern that we take into account in our business processes. Furthermore, we consider it necessary for you to know at all times when we store which data and how we use them.

In particular, the protection of personal data such as name, address, telephone number or e-mail address and the responsible handling of the information you entrust to us are important to us. This also includes the data that is generated in the background when using the Internet.

We process personal data collected during visits to our website in accordance with the data protection regulations of the country in which the office responsible for data processing is based.

Collection and processing of personal data
When you visit our website, our web servers store the IP address assigned to you by your Internet Service Provider by default. The website from which you visit us, the web pages you visit on our site, as well as the date and duration of your visit are also stored.

If you are asked to provide personal information on the individual web pages, you will be informed of the intended purpose of processing and, if necessary, asked for your consent.

Cookies
We use so-called session cookies to optimize our online offer. A session cookie is a small text file that is sent by the respective servers when you visit a website and stored temporarily on your hard drive. This file as such contains a so-called session ID, with which you can assign various requests of your browser to the common session. This will allow your computer to be recognized when you return to our website. These cookies are deleted after you close your browser.

We also use persistent cookies (also small text files that are stored on your terminal device) to a small extent, which remain on your terminal device and enable us to recognize your browser the next time you visit. These cookies are stored on your hard disk and are deleted automatically after the specified time. Their life span is 1 month to 10 years. This enables us to present our services to you in a more user-friendly, effective and secure manner and, for example, to display information on the site that is specifically tailored to your interests.
Our legitimate interest in the use of cookies pursuant to Art 6 Abs. 1 S. 1 f) DSGVO is to make our website more user-friendly, effective and secure.

The following data and information are stored in the cookies:

information on the number of visits to our website and use of individual functions of our website.

When the cookie is activated, it is assigned an identification number and your personal data is not assigned to this identification number. Your name, IP address or similar data that would allow the cookie to be assigned to you will not be placed in the cookie. Based on the cookie technology, we only receive pseudonymous information, for example about which pages of our website have been visited. We do not collect any personal data from you.

You can set your browser so that you are informed in advance about the setting of cookies and can decide in individual cases whether you want to exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or in general, or that cookies are completely prevented. This may limit the functionality of the website.
