The WEBEN SMART website is protected by technical and organizational security measures to prevent the loss, manipulation or destruction of your personal data and to avoid access to these data by unauthorized persons. Despite using industry standard Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology for encrypting the data transferred between you and our website, complete protection against all eventualities is not possible.
DISCLOSURE OF PERSONAL DATA
No personal data will be disclosed to third parties without your express permission. Data shall only be passed on to public bodies, law enforcement authorities and courts where there is a legal requirement to do so. Our employees are also obliged to secrecy and to treat the personal data you provide confidentially.
The third-party designation shall not apply to companies in the WEBEN SMART group affiliated with WEBEN FRANCE SAS, nor shall it apply to service providers contractually bound to us for contracted data processing.
COLLECTION, PROCESSING AND USE OF PERSONAL DATA
If you are using our website for purely informative purposes, i.e. if you are not registered or sending information to us in any other way, we collect only those personal data that your browser sends to our server. We require these data for technical purposes to display our website for you and to ensure the stability and security thereof. These data also enable us to purposefully improve our range of services. The legal basis for this is contained in Art. 6, para. 1, sentence 1(f) GDPR (legitimate interest).
- Date and URL relating to the visitor’s use of the website
- URL immediately prior to the visitor’s access to the website
- IP address and domain from which the site was accessed
- The browser used
- The operating system used
- Technical information about the visit (http method, http version, http status code, length of the data transferred)
Global cookies are also used. These measure the traffic of the website and identify the visitors and the session. These cookies are not deleted at the end of the session but are replaced after a year.
You can determine how the “Global cookies” are set by selecting from among three levels under “Cookie settings” (can be called up on every page via the footer at the bottom or via the cookie banner during the initial visit to the site). There, you can also obtain a complete overview of all the cookies embedded into our site.
These levels are:
- Required cookies: required cookies enable basic functions such as input into forms or spam detection.
- Functional cookies: functional cookies enable the embedding of external content in our webpages. This includes the embedding of YouTube videos, Facebook posts or the current share price.
- Marketing cookies: here, cookies and tracking pixels (typically a graphic with a size of 1×1 pixel which is loaded by a server as soon as a user calls up a website) are used which enable customization, advertising and retargeting via communication with sites beyond our website (e.g. via platforms such as LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook, DoubleClick or Bing). In addition, these cookies provide click paths to the sales department. Further information on this can be found under “Embedded content” and “Internet advertisement”.
The legal basis for the use of “session cookies” and required cookies is our legitimate interest as stipulated in Art. 6(1)(1)(f) GDPR. The legal basis for the use of functional and marketing cookies is your consent as stipulated in Art. 6(1)(1)(a) GDPR.
You can prevent all saving of cookies using the appropriate browser settings. However, if you want to be able to use all the functions of our website, we do not recommend this.
WEBEN’S INVOLVEMENT IN SOCIAL MEDIA
Besides our website, WEBEN FRANCE SAS is present on various social media. We are currently represented on YouTube, LinkedIn, and WeChat.
Please refer to the data privacy provisions of the relevant operator for the purpose and extent of the related data collection as well as the provisions for use of your data by the relevant platform.
YouTube (Google): https://policies.google.com/privacy
On our website, we use videos from YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA, a subsidiary of Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. On our Internet pages, we have embedded YouTube videos that are stored on http://www.youtube.com and can be played directly from our website. These are all embedded in the “expanded data mode”. In other words, no data are transmitted to YouTube from you as a user if you do not play the videos. The data named in following paragraph is only transmitted once you play the videos. We have no influence on this transmission of data. Embedding YouTube videos enhances the appeal of our website. The legal basis for this is contained in Art. 6 (1)(1)(f) GDPR.
When you visit our website, YouTube will receive the information that you have accessed the corresponding subpage of our website. The data specified in the “Collection, processing and use of personal data” section will also be transferred. This happens regardless of whether YouTube provides a user account which you are logged into or whether there is no user account. If you are logged into Google, your data will be allocated directly to your account. If you do not want data to be allocated to your YouTube profile, you must log out before activating the button. YouTube stores your data in user profiles and uses them for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or the tailored design of its website. This analysis is mainly carried out (even for users that are not logged in) to provide advertising tailored to the user’s requirements and to inform other users of the social network of your activities on our website. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles and you must contact YouTube to exercise this right.
We advertise on both our own website and non-affiliated websites. We do so using the information made available to us when you visit our website and make use of our content or services. This information is collected by means of marketing cookies (see above). After visiting the WEBEN website, you may therefore see advertisements for WEBEN on other websites in the form of banners.
The display of advertisements as a result of your activities on non-affiliated websites is not associated with your identity. We do not share any personal data with advertisers or other third parties that display our advertisements. Advertisers or other third parties (including advertising networks, ad serving companies and any other service providers contracted by such) may nevertheless assume that users who click on or interact with advertisements or content belong to the target group for the advertisements or content in question.
For more detailed information on how the various tools work, please refer to the websites of the individual third-party providers:
Google Tag Manager
Google Double Click
Twitter Universal Tag
LinkedIn Insight Tag
We use Google Analytics for website analysis. This software only evaluates server data. These data correspond to the data specified in the “Collection, processing and use of personal data” section.
Upon filling out a form on our website or contacting us by e-mail, the data you have provided will only be used to process your request and will always be treated confidentially. If you contact us using our contact form, you must always specify your first and last name, your e-mail address and the country from which you are writing to us. You give us your express consent for processing these personal data for the purpose of handling your request. The legal basis is contained in Art. 6, para. 1, sentence 1(a) GDPR. You can withdraw this consent at any time.
We erase the data used for the purpose of establishing contact once storage is no longer required or restrict processing if there are statutory retention obligations.
LINKS TO THIRD-PARTY WEBSITES
Our website may contain links to external websites. At the time of setting the link, WEBEN FRANCE SAS satisfied itself that the linked pages do not contain illegal content of any kind. However, WEBEN FRANCE SAS cannot ensure continuous monitoring and has no influence whatsoever on the content of the linked websites. No liability will therefore be accepted for the content after the link has been set.
You have the following rights from us in respect of your personal data:
- Right of access,
- Right to rectification or erasure,
- Right to object to processing,
- Right to restriction of processing,
- Right to data portability.
You can contact our Data Protection Officer free of charge at [email protected] to assert these rights.
You also have the right to lodge a complaint with a data protection authority regarding our processing of your personal data.
TIME LIMITS FOR ERASURE
We erase all personal data as soon as they are no longer required for the purpose that they have been collected for or you have exercised your right to erasure. Provided there are no statutory retention periods and none of the other exemptions specified in Art. 17, para. 3 GDPR applies, we will erase the data concerned as quickly as possible.
