1. Data protection
We are pleased that you are visiting our web pages and that you are interested in our offers. The protection of your personal data is an important concern for us. In this Privacy Statement we explain how we collect your personal data, what we do with it, for what purposes and on what legal basis this is done, and which rights and claims are associated with it for you. In addition, we refer to the Daimler Data Protection Policy:
Our Privacy Statement for the use of our websites and the Data Protection Policy of Daimler AG do not apply to your activities on the websites of social networks or other providers that you can reach via the links on our websites. Please check the websites of these providers for their data protection regulations.
2. Collection and processing of your personal data
a. When you visit our website, we store certain information about the browser and operating system you use, the date and time of your visit, the access status (e.g. whether you were able to access a website or received an error message), the use of website functions, any search terms you may have entered, the frequency with which you access individual websites, the designation of files accessed, the amount of data transferred, the website from which you accessed our websites, and the website which you visit from our websites, either by clicking on links on our websites or by entering a domain directly in the input field of the same tab (or the same window) of your browser in which you opened our websites. We also store your IP address and the name of your Internet service provider for seven days for security reasons, in particular to prevent and detect attacks on our websites or attempts at fraud.
b. We store other personal data only if you provide those data, e.g. as part of a registration for the AMG Speedletter, and even in those cases only insofar as we are authorized to do so through your formal consent or in accordance with applicable legal provisions (further information on this can be found below in the section “Legal basis of processing”).
c. You are not legally or contractually obliged to provide your personal data. It is possible, however, that certain functions of our websites rely on the availability of personal data. If you do not provide personal data in these cases, some functions may not be available or may be available only to a limited extent as a result.
3. Purposes of use
a. We use the personal data collected when you visit our website in order to operate it in the most convenient manner for your use and to protect our IT systems from attacks and other illegal activities.
b. If you provide us with further personal data, e.g. within the scope of a registration, a contact form, a survey, a promotional contest or for the performance of a contract, we use those data for the purposes mentioned, for the purposes of customer administration and – if necessary – for the purposes of processing and invoicing any business transactions, in each case to the extent required.
4. Transfer of personal data to third parties; social plug-ins
a. Our websites may also contain third-party offers. If you click on such an offer, we transfer data to the respective provider to the required extent (e.g. information that you have found this offer with us and, if applicable, further information that you have already provided on our websites for this purpose).
b. When we use social plug-ins on our websites from social networks such as Facebook, Twitter and Google+, we integrate them as follows:
When you visit our websites, the social plug-ins are deactivated, i.e. no data are transmitted to the operators of these networks. If you want to use one of the networks, click on the respective social plug-in to establish a direct connection to the server of the respective network.
If you have a user account on the network and are logged in when you activate the social plug-in, the network can associate your visit to our websites with your user account. If you want to avoid this, please log out of the network before activating the social plug-in. A social network cannot associate a visit to other Daimler websites until you have also activated an existing social plug-in there.
When you activate a social plug-in, the network transfers the content that becomes available directly to your browser, which integrates it into our websites. In this situation, data transmissions can also take place that are initiated and controlled by the respective social network. Your connection to a social network, the data transfers taking place between the network and your system, and your interactions on that platform are governed solely by the privacy policies of that network.
The social plug-in remains active until you deactivate it or delete your cookies.
c. If you click on the link to an offer or activate a social plug-in, personal data may reach providers in countries outside the European Economic Area that, from the point of view of the European Union (“EU”), may not guarantee an “adequate level of protection” for the processing of personal data in accordance with EU standards. Please bear this in mind before clicking on a link or activating a social plug-in and thereby triggering a transfer of your data.
5. Analysis of usage data; use of analysis tools
a. We would like to tailor the content of our websites as precisely as possible to your interests and in this way improve our offering for you. In order to identify usage preferences and particularly popular areas of the websites, we use the following analysis tool(s): Matomo (formerly Piwik).
b. If you do not want us to collect and analyze information about your visit to our website using the analysis tools mentioned above, you can object to this by removing the check mark from the checkbox below.
c. Below you will find information on the providers of the analysis tools we use and the relevant opt-out option:
Matomo - formerly PIWIK (“Matomo”):
On our website, we use the open source software tool Matomo (formerly PIWIK) to analyze the surfing habits of our users. The software sets a cookie on the computer of the users (for more about cookies, see above), whereby software runs exclusively on the servers of our website.
The personal data of the users is not stored there. The data are not passed along to any third party.
For further information on the privacy settings of the Matomo software, please refer to the following link: https://matomo.org/docs/privacy/
Our website uses plug-ins from the Google-powered YouTube page. Site operator is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. When you visit one of our YouTube plug-in-enabled sites, you will be connected to the servers of YouTube. This tells the YouTube server which of our pages you've visited. If you’re logged into your YouTube account, YouTube will allow you to associate your browsing behavior directly with your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account. YouTube is used for the purpose of making our online presentation more attractive. This constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of GDPR Art. 6, Para. 1, Letter f. For the embedded YouTube videos on our website, the Privacy-Enhanced Mode offered by YouTube is enabled. According to YouTube, this prevents its servers from setting cookies to record usage patterns, which means video playback cannot be personalized here.
We use technical and organizational security measures to protect your data managed by us against manipulation, loss, destruction and against access by unauthorized persons. We are constantly improving our security measures in line with technological developments.
7. Legal bases of processing
a. Insofar as you have given us your consent for the processing of your personal data, that consent is the legal basis for the processing (Art. 6, Para. 1, Letter a GDPR).
b. For the processing of personal data for the purposes of initiating or fulfilling a contract with you, Art. 6, Para. 1, Letter b GDPR is the legal basis.
c. Insofar as the processing of your personal data is necessary for the fulfillment of our legal obligations (e.g. for the retention of data), we are authorized to do so pursuant to Art. 6, Para. 1, Letter c GDPR.
d. In addition, we process personal data for the purposes of safeguarding our legitimate interests and the legitimate interests of third parties pursuant to Art. 6, Para. 1, Letter f GDPR. Maintaining the functionality of our IT systems, but also marketing our own and third-party products and services as well as documenting business contacts as required by law are such legitimate interests.
8. Deletion of your personal data
Your IP address and the name of your Internet service provider, which we only store for security reasons, will be deleted after seven days. Otherwise, we delete your personal data as soon as the purpose for which we have collected and processed the data ceases to apply. Beyond this point in time, data is stored only if this is required by the laws, regulations or other legal provisions of the European Union or of a member state of the European Union to which we are subject.
9. Rights of the data subject
a. As a data subject, you have the right of access (Art. 15 GDPR), right to rectification (Art. 16 GDPR), right to erasure (Art. 17 GDPR), right to restriction of processing (Art. 18 GDPR) and right to data portability (Art. 20 GDPR).
b. If you have consented to the processing of your personal data by us, you have the right to revoke your consent at any time. The legality of processing your personal data before revocation remains unaffected. We may further process such data pursuant to another applicable legal basis, e.g. for the fulfillment of our legal obligations (cf. section “Legal bases of processing”).
c. Right to object
You have the right to object at any time to the processing of your personal data pursuant to Art. 6, Para. 1, Letter e GDPR (data processing in the public interest) or Art. 6, Para. 1, Letter f GDPR (data processing on the basis of a balance of interests) on grounds relating to your particular situation. If you object, we will process your personal data only if we can prove compelling legitimate reasons that outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims.
d. We ask you to address your claims or declarations to the following contact address if possible: datenschutz-amg(at)daimler.com
e. If you believe that the processing of your personal data violates legal requirements, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a competent data protection supervisory authority (Art. 77 GDPR).
