Data Privacy

All procedures of data processing (e. g. collection, processing and transfer) are treated in compliance with the statutory requirements. The following explanation provides an overview of what type of data is collected, the way in which such data is used and transferred, which security measures are applied to protect your data and the way in which you obtain information about the data provided by you.

1. Collection and storage of personal data

Personal data are individual specifications about personal or factual conditions of an individual or determinable natural person, e.g. your name, your address, your telephone number, your date of birth, your bank details and your IP address.

The following data is logged when visiting our website, whereby the storage of such data serves internal system-related and statistical purposes only: name of your internet service provider, names of the visited web pages, the used browser, the operating system and querying domain, date and time of access, used search engine, names of downloaded files and your IP address.

Further personal data are only collected if these are provided voluntarily by you, e.g. in the context of a query, an order or a registration.

For example you can register with our email newsletter. In this case, we will collect and store your email address. Your email address will be used for mailing our newsletter emails informing you about current offers and developments. You may request your deletion from the distribution list by sending us a respective email to our email address mentioned in the imprint or to our Data Protection Officer at any time. Your data will be deleted as a result.

Our online order services use the platform of Woocommerce. The utilization of our online order services requires your registration. During the registration process all data required for processing your orders are queried. Such data especially are your complete name, your complete business name including authorized representative(s), your email address, your address (billing and deviating shipping address, if any), payment details and your phone number. In order to facilitate future logins without reentering a complete set of data, you have to choose a password that may be amended by you at any time. We store the data entered by you in order to set up a customer’s account. The customer’s account will be used for processing your orders. Your data will be held available for your upcoming orders (registration), as long as you maintain your registration with us.

We only retain personal data for as long as is necessary for us to render a service you have requested or to which you have given your consent, except where otherwise provided by law (e.g. in connection with pending litigation).

2. Utilization, transfer and deletion of personal data

BigRep GmbH is a global company with local representatives that are trained and certified by our personnel. In order to provide local service, we may share your data with our local service partner.

The personal data provided by you will be used for answering your queries, processing your order, assessing your credit-worthiness, and for the technical administration of the website.

Your personal data will never be sold. Your personal data may be transferred to third parties, if the transmission is required for processing the contractual relationship, for accounting purposes, for the collection of claims or if you have consented explicitly to the transmission. For instance it may be necessary, that we forward your name, address and order data to carriers if the delivery shall be effected ex works. Such third parties will receive only such data that are necessary for the fulfillment of their functions. No other utilization of the information by the carriers is permitted.

We use a third-party provider to make the recruitment process as easy as possible. The provider (recruiterbox) is located in the US and processes your applications on our behalf. Recruiterbox is a company which is a member of the EU-US Privacy Shield agreement. We commissioned them to process contract data, ensuring in the process that national and European requirements of the GDPR and the new version of the German Data Protection Act (BDSG) are fulfilled. The legal basis for processing your application data is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR.
