Privacy Policy

Privacy Policy

We are delighted by your interest in the DUNHILL SYSTEMS website and in our services. When you use our website and our online services, the protection of your privacy is very important. If personal data are processed, we observe the applicable data protection regulations.

1. General information on data processing

i) Scope and purpose of the processing of personal data

We shall collect, store and use your personal data only insofar as this is necessary for the provision of a functional website and our contents and services offered on the website. The collection and use of your personal data shall generally only take place with your consent. An exception shall apply in cases in which the processing of the data is permitted due to statutory provisions. 

ii) Legal basis for the data processing

The processing your personal data shall take place on the basis of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG). If you have granted us consent to process personal data for specific purposes, Art. 6 (1) a GDPR shall serve as the legal basis for the processing of personal data. Consent which has been granted may be revoked you at any time. Please note that the revocation shall only have effect for the future. Data processing which has taken place before the revocation shall not be affected by this.

iii) Data deletion and storage period

We shall process and store your personal data for as long as this is necessary for the fulfilment of the respective purpose. The data may be stored beyond this period if this is provided for by statutory provisions to which we are subject as the controller. If the data is no longer necessary or if a storage period prescribed by these provisions has expired, your data shall generally be deleted.

iv) IT security and links to websites of third parties

The DUNHILL SYSTEMS shall employ technical and organisational security measures to protect your data which is administered by us from accidental or deliberate destruction, manipulation, loss or access by unauthorised persons. These security measures shall be adapted to the latest technical options. Our websites may contain links to websites of other providers. Our data privacy information shall not apply to these third party websites. 

v) Transmission of personal data to a third country or to an international organisation

A data transmission to countries outside the EU/EEA (so-called third countries) shall only take place if this is necessary or prescribed by the law, if you have granted your consent to this or in the context of order processing. 

2. Data processing processes in the provision of the website and the creation of log files

When you visit our website, our web servers shall generally record and collect the name of your internet service provider, your IP address, the website from which you are visiting us, the pages you visit on our website, and the date and duration of your visit. These data shall be stored in the log files of our systems. The use of the IP address shall, however, be limited to the extent which is technically necessary. It shall be shortened and thus only used in an anonymised form, so that an assignment of the IP address to a user is not possible. The data shall not be linked to personal data. The legal basis for the temporary storage of the data shall be Art. 6 (1) f GPDR. The temporary storage of the shortened IP address by our systems is technically necessary in order to allow the website to be provided to your device. The storage in log files shall take place to ensure the functionality of the website. An analysis of the data for marketing purposes shall not take place in this context. Our legitimate interest in data processing in accordance with Art. 6 (1) f GDPR shall be found in these purposes. The recording of the data on the provision of the website and the storage of the data in log files are absolutely necessary for the operation of the website. Consequently, you as the user shall have no option of objecting to this.
