Anonymous data collection
You can always visit our web pages without telling us who you are. We only learn the name of your Internet service-provider, the web site from which you visit us and the web pages you visit on our website. We also receive information relating to the browser type and version that is used, the geographical data of the access and the IP address that they use. This information is subjected to statistical analysis. You remain anonymous as an individual user.
Collection and processing of personal data
Personal data is only collected when you volunteer it, for example for the execution of an order, a survey, a prize competition or registration for personalised services. Such data is processed for the purposes of advertising and market research as well as for the design of electronic services in line with demand. In addition, if you give your consent, the information you have called up when visiting the Rolf Benz website will be put together into a user profile so we can offer you advertising personally tailored to your needs. Your data will be encrypted prior to transmission and processing to protect it from access by unauthorised persons.
Usage and transmission of personal data
The personal data collected while visiting our web pages will only be used for order handling or processing your enquiries unless you give your consent. In addition, your data will only be used for the purposes of advertising and market research as well as for the design of electronic services of ROLF BENZ AG & Co.

Google Tag Manager does not set any cookies, only tags, and it does not record any personal data. The service also causes other tags to be triggered; these may be able to record data in turn. Google Tag Manager does not access this data, however. If tags are disabled at domain or cookie level, all tracking tags that are implemented with Google Tag Manager remain disabled.
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, text files which are stored on your computer and permit an analysis of how you use the website. The information that is generated by the cookie regarding your use of this website (including your IP address) is transmitted to a Google Inc. server in the USA where it is saved in an anonymised format.

Social Media Plug-Ins
Use of social plug-ins from Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram & You Tube.
We use social buttons from social networks on some of our web pages and in our e-mail signatures. In addition, contents from social networks are embedded directly in our web pages. In the balancing of interests, this helps to protect our legitimate prevailing interest in marketing our offering optimally in accordance with Art. 6 Par. 1 P. 1 lit. f GDRP. Further details are as follows:
Programs (plug-ins) from the social network Facebook are included on our website. They are operated exclusively by Facebook Inc., 1601 California Ave, Paolo Alto, CA 94304, USA (Facebook). The plug-ins can be identified in the context of our website by the Facebook logo or the “Like” button.
When you visit a web page on our website containing such a plug-in, your browser connects directly to the Facebook servers and in turn the content of the plug-in is transmitted to your browser which integrates it in the website that is displayed.
The information that you have visited our website is hereby forwarded to Facebook. During your visit to our website, if you are logged in to Facebook with your personal user account, Facebook can assign the website visit to your account. By interacting with plug-ins, such as by clicking on the “Like” button or leaving a comment, this associated information is transmitted directly to Facebook where it is stored. If you would like to prevent your data from being transmitted in this way, you have to log out of your Facebook account before visiting our website.
The purpose and scope of the data that is collected by Facebook and the additional processing and use of your data there, as well as your rights and settings options for protecting your privacy in this regard can be found in Facebook’s data protection notice (http://de-de.facebook.com/privacy/explanation.php).
Our website uses the user action pixel from Facebook, Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”).
It enables the website visitor’s behaviour to be tracked after they clicked on a Facebook advertisement and were forwarded to the supplier’s website. This means that the effectiveness of Facebook advertisements can be assessed for statistical and market research purposes and also be optimised for future promotional activities.
The data that is collected is anonymous for us as the operator of this website; we cannot make any conclusions about the identity of users. However, the data is stored and processed by Facebook, which means that the data may be linked with the respective user profile, and Facebook can use this data for its own advertising purposes in accordance with Facebook’s data policy. This means that Facebook can enable advertisements on Facebook pages and also outside of Facebook. We cannot influence this use of data as a website operator.
Facebook’s data policy contains additional information about protecting your privacy: www.facebook.com/about/privacy/. You can also disable the “Custom Audiences” remarketing function in the settings for advertisements in www.facebook.com/ads/preferences/. You must be signed in to Facebook to do this.
If you do not have a Facebook account, you can disable use-based advertising from Facebook on the website for the European Interactive Digital Advertising Alliance: www.youronlinechoices.com/de/praferenzmanagement/.
We use the YouTube.com platform to submit our own videos and to make them publicly accessible. YouTube is an offering from an unaffiliated third party, YouTube LLC.
Some of the web pages on our website contain links to the offering from YouTube. Generally speaking, we are not responsible for the contents of web pages that are linked to. If you follow a link to YouTube, we would like to point out that YouTube stores data belonging to its users (such as personal information, IP addresses) according to its data use policy and uses it for commercial purposes.
Some of the web pages on our website also link directly to videos that are saved on YouTube. As a result, contents of the YouTube website are depicted in subsections of a browser window. However, the YouTube videos are not displayed unless they are clicked on separately. This technology is also known as “framing”. If you display a (sub-)page of our website in which the YouTube videos are embedded in this way, a connection is made to the YouTube servers and the content is transmitted to your browser and thus displayed on the web page.
YouTube contents are integrated only in “privacy-enhanced mode”. This is provided by YouTube itself and ensures that YouTube does not initially store any cookies on your device. However, when contents are called up on the relevant web pages, IP addresses as well as the additional data specified in point 4 are transmitted, thereby communicating in particular which of our web pages you have visited. However, this information cannot be allocated to you if you did not log in beforehand or were not permanently logged in to YouTube or another Google service (such as Google+) before you called up the web pages.
If you start the playback of an integrated video by clicking on it, YouTube’s privacy-enhanced mode saves on your device only those cookies that do not contain any personally identifiable data unless you are currently logged in to a Google service. You can prevent these cookies by using corresponding browser settings and extensions.

Our website uses what are called social plug-ins (“plug-ins”) from the social network Pinterest, which is operated by Pinterest Inc., 808 Brannan Street, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA (“Pinterest”). The plug-ins can be identified by buttons bearing the “Pin it” logo on a white or red background. An overview of the Pinterest plug-ins and how they look can be found here: https://developers.pinterest.com/docs/getting-started/introduction/ When you call up a web page on our website containing such a plug-in, your browser connects directly to Pinterest’s servers. The content of the plug-in is transmitted directly to your browser and integrated in the web page. Integrating the content gives Pinterest the information that your browser has called up the relevant web page on our website, even if you do not have a Pinterest profile or are not currently logged in to Pinterest. This information (including your IP address) is transmitted from your browser directly to one of Pinterest’s servers in the USA where it is stored.
If you are logged in to Pinterest, Pinterest can directly allocate the visit to our website to your Pinterest profile. If you interact with the plug-ins, for example by pressing the “Pin it” button, the associated information is also transmitted directly to one of Pinterest’s servers where it is stored. The information is also published on Pinterest and displayed to your contacts there.
For the purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Pinterest, as well as your rights and setting options for protecting your privacy, please refer to Pinterest’s privacy policies. If you do not want Pinterest to allocate the data that was collected via our website to your Pinterest profile, you have to log out of Pinterest before visiting our website. You can also prevent the Pinterest plug-ins from being loaded by using add-ons for your browser, such as the “NoScript” script blocker (http://noscript.net/).
Use of Instagram Social Plug-Ins Our website uses social plug-ins (“plug-ins”) from Instagram, which is operated by Instagram LLC., 1601 Willow Road, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA (“Instagram”). The plug-ins are identified by an Instagram logo for example in the form of an “Instagram camera”. An overview of the Instagram plug-ins and how they look can be found here: https://help.instagram.com/519522125107875
When you call up a web page on our website containing such a plug-in, your browser connects directly to Instagram’s servers. The content of the plug-in is transmitted by Instagram directly to your browser and integrated in the web page. Integrating the content gives Instagram the information that your browser has called up the relevant web page on our website, even if you do not have an Instagram profile or are not currently logged in to Instagram. This information (including your IP address) is transmitted from your browser directly to one of Instagram’s servers in the USA where it is stored.
Rolf Benz AG & Co. KG uses chat software provided by Userlike UG (limited liability), Probsteigasse 44-46, 50670 Cologne, Germany. You can use the chat function in the same way as a contact form to chat with our employees virtually in real time. When you start the chat, the following personal data is collected:
– Date and time of the call
– Browser type/version
– IP address
– Operating system used
– URL of the previously visited website
– Quantity of the data sent.
– Also, if specified: First name, last name and email address.
Depending on the conversation with our employees, additional personal data that you entered may be collected. The type of this data depends on your query or issue that you describe to us. All of this data is processed so that we can provide you with a fast and efficient way of contacting us, thereby improving our customer service.
All of our employees have been and are being trained in the field of data protection and have been taught how to handle customer data securely and confidentially. All of our employees are obliged to maintain confidentiality and have signed an amendment in their employee contracts obliging them to preserve confidentiality and to observe data protection laws.
Furthermore, Rolf Benz AG & Co. KG saves these chats for a period of 12 months. The aim of this is to save you from extensive discussions about the history of your query whilst also continuously monitoring the quality of our chat service. The processing is therefore permitted in accordance with Art. 6 Par. 1 f GDPR. If you do not agree with this, please inform us by using the contact details listed below. We will then delete any saved chats immediately.
Saving the chat data also serves the purpose of ensuring the security of our information technology systems. We have a legitimate interest in doing this, which is why the processing is permitted in accordance with Art. 6 Par. 1 f GDPR.
To provide you with optimum information, our pages include links which refer you to third-party pages. If this is not readily apparent, we will point out to you that an external link is involved. ROLF BENZ AG & Co. KG has no influence whatsoever on the content and design of pages of other suppliers. The guarantees given under this data protection declaration naturally thus do not apply in such cases.
