I. Basic Information on Data Processing

Thank you for your interest in our company. The protection of your personal data is of paramount concern for us. We therefore want to inform you comprehensively about the information we collect on our websites, the purpose we use it for, who we might make it available to and what rights you have (Art. 12 and 13 of the General Data Protection Regulation – GDPR).

Our personal privacy measures are guided by the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR, VO EU 2016/679), effective 2018-05-25, and the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG). With the simple citation of a regulation enclosed in parentheses, we want to express which standard is used to justify the data processing, and if personal data are processed during this process.

Controller in terms of data protection law:

WAGO Kontakttechnik GmbH (under Swiss law) & Co. KG
Hansastr. 27
D-32423 Minden
Phone: (011) 49 571/887-0
Fax: (011) 49 571/887-169
Email: info@wago.com

We take the company’s internal privacy policy very seriously. We contractually obligate our employees and the processors (service companies) we engage to maintain confidentiality and to observe the IT/security rules and the applicable data protection provisions.

II. Purpose, Legal Basis and Data Categories

Generally, it is not required that you provide personally identifiable information to visit our website. Technically, however, the IP address transmitted from your system is necessary to transfer the data from our website to you. Beyond the freely accessible area of our website – to process your registration, for example – we need your personal data, as appropriate, in order to be able to personally respond to you.

We need a legal basis to process your data. Art. 6 GDPR presents a non-exclusive list of legal bases. Per Art. 6 GDPR, processing is permitted when:

  • You have consented to processing of your personal data for one or more specific purposes (Art. 6 (1)(a) GDPR).
  • The processing is required to fulfill a contract in which the contractual party is the affected person. This also applies to contractual measures undertaken at the request of the affected person (Art. 6 (1)(b) GDPR).
  • The data processing is required to fulfill a legal obligation we are subject to (Art. 6 (1)(c) GDPR):
  • The processing is required to protect the vital interests of the affected person or another natural person. This may include the exceptional case that an affected person is severely injured, which mandates that their personal data must be sent to medical personnel (Art. 6 (1)(d) GDPR).
  • The processing is required to maintain the legitimate interests of the responsible parties or any third parties, to the extent that the vital interests, legal rights and fundamental freedoms of the person for which protection of personal data is required are not infringed (Art. 6 (1)(f) GDPR). This legal basis also entitles us to enact processing procedures not covered by any of the above-mentioned legal bases, if this processing is required to maintain the legitimate interests of the our company or any third parties and to the extent that the vital interests, legal rights and fundamental freedoms of the affected person are not infringed. We are also particularly entitled to these processing procedures since they have been specifically granted by European legislation. This legislation supports the contention, an entitled interest may be assumed when the affected person is a customer of the responsible party (Recital 47 sentence 2 GDPR).

III. Collection, Storage of Usage Data during a Visit to Our Website without Registration, Use of Cookies

When you visit our website, we receive your complete IP address from your EDP. Only with this IP address are we able to transmit the data of our website to you so that the website displays for you (Art. 6 (1)(b) and (f) GDPR). Beyond the processing for transmission of the called up data, the full IP address is stored for only two days in order to be in a position to initiate defensive measures against attacks on our IT, such as a block of IP addresses as well as possible criminal prosecution (Art. 6 (1)(f) GDPR).

We store the date and time of the page view and the page from which you called up our page. We do not save other personal data, unless you log in.

If the programming of our website prompts your browser to load data from servers operated by third parties, we are not, as such, involved in these data transmissions. Our third-party providers have requested we inform you of the following:

We use Google Analytics, a Google Web analysis service (Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland; “Google“). Google Analytics employs the cookies described in our Cookie Policy that facilitate analysis of your use of our websites and online services. The information generated on your use of these websites and online offerings – including information on device events, such as crashes, system activity, hardware settings, browser type, browser version, browser language, installed add-ins, screen resolution, device type, date and time of your query and referring URL – are transmitted on our behalf to a server of Google in the United States and stored indefinitely. We use Google Analytics only with the activated IP anonymization extension “_anonymizeIp()”. This means that IP addresses transmitted to Google are truncated and processed in advance by Google on servers residing in the EU in order to exclude a direct identification of an individual through the IP address in the US. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transmitted to a server of Google in the US and then truncated there.

We use this information to analyze visits to the website in order to compile reports about the website activities for us so that we better understand how our site is used and where we can improve it (Art. 6 (1)(b) and (f) GDPR). Pseudonymous usage profiles can thereby be created from the processed data. Google will also transfer this information in some cases, when legally mandated or to the extent that third parties process this data on behalf of Google. Google will not associate your IP address with other Google data under any circumstances.

You can find further information on data usage for advertising purposes through Google, setting options and ways to object on the Google websites: https://www.google.com/intl/de/policies/privacy/partners/ (“How Google uses data when you use our partners' sites or apps”), http://www.google.com/policies/technologies/ads (“Data usage for advertising purposes”), http://www.google.de/settings/ads (“Control the information Google uses to show you ads”) and http://www.google.com/ads/preferences/ (“Make the ads you see more useful to you”).

You have a right to object and you can prevent the installation and storage of the cookie for Google Analytics through a corresponding setting in your browser. Details to blocking cookies can be found under “Help” on your browser. In addition, you can prevent collection, for Google, of the data that is generated by the cookie and related to your use of the online offering as well as the processing of such data by Google by downloading and installing the Link browser plug-in of Google available at the following link http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.

An opt-out cookie will be set to prevent the collection of your data when visiting this website in the future. With this browser plug-in, the collection and storage of data for Google Analytics can also be objected to at any time with future effect.

We also use Google Optimize. Google Optimize is a Google service (Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland; “Google“). We use the Google Optimize service to enhance the attractiveness, content and functionality of our website by statistically evaluating a percentage of our users and their changes in use habits as a response to new functions and contents we introduce. Google Optimize is a sub-service of Google Analytics (see Section “Google Analytics”). In addition, you can prevent collection of the data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website − your IP address in particular – as well as the processing of such data by Google by downloading and installing the Google browser plug-in available at this Link : www.tools.google.com

As an AdWords customer, we also use “Google Conversion Tracking,” an analysis service offered by Google Ireland Limited (Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland; ”Google“). Google AdWords uses it to set a cookie (“conversion cookie“) on your computer if you have reached our website through a Google ad. These cookies lose their validity after thirty days and are not used for personal identification. If you visit certain pages of ours and the cookie has not yet expired, we and Google can recognize that someone has clicked on the ad and was thus redirected to our page. Each AdWords customer receives a different cookie. Cookies therefore cannot be used to identify you or your path on the Internet on successive visits at different websites. The information obtained using the conversion cookie serves to create conversion statistics for AdWords customers who have decided to use conversion tracking. We consequently receive usage statistics about those users who reach our website through a Google ad and can thereby track how successful each of our promotional ads is and how suitable for you they have been for your search topic (Art. 6 (1)(f) GDPR).

As an AdWords customer, we learn the total number of users who have clicked on our display and been transferred to a site furnished with a conversion tracking tag. However, we do not obtain any information that would permit users to be personally identified. If you do not wish to participate in the tracking process, you can refuse the setting of a required cookie for this – for example, through a browser setting that generally deactivates the automatic setting of cookies. You have a right to object and can, for this purpose, prevent the installation of cookies for Google AdWords (at the domain “googleadservices.com”) through a setting in your browser so that cookies are blocked by the domain “googleadservices.com.” Details to blocking cookies can be found under “Help” on your browser. You can find the corresponding cookie names in our Cookie Policy.
