Your rights as a data subject

First, we would like to inform you of your rights as a data subject. These rights are codified in Art. 15 - 22 of the GDPR. These include:

  • The right to information (Art. 15 GDPR),
  • The right to erasure (Art. 17 GDPR),
  • The right to rectification (Art. 16 GDPR),
  • The right to data portability (Art. 20 GDPR),
  • The right to a restriction of processing (Art. 18 GDPR),
  • The right to object to processing (Art. 21 GDPR).

To assert these rights, please contact us at: cntctmwd. The same applies if you have questions about data processing at our company or would like to withdraw any consent you have given. You also have the right to lodge a complaint with a data protection authority.


Rights to objection

Please note the following in connection with your rights to objection:

If we process your personal data for direct advertising, you have the right to object to this data processing at any time without stating reasons.

If you object to processing for the purpose of direct advertising, we shall no longer process your personal data for these purposes. Objections are free of charge and can be made informally, ideally by e-mail to: cntctmwd.

If we process your data to protect legitimate interests, you can object to this processing at any time for reasons arising from your particular situation; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions.

We will then no longer process your personal data unless we demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims. 


Purpose and legal basis for data processing

The provisions of the GDPR and all other relevant legal regulations are always observed when processing your personal data. The legal basis for data processing is derived in particular from Art. 6 GDPR.

We use your data to make business contacts, to fulfil contractual and legal obligations, to implement contractual relationships, to offer products and services and to enhance customer relationships, which can also include analyses for marketing purposes and direct advertising.

Your consent to data processing can also represent an authorising provision under data protection law. Prior to any consent, we will inform you about the purpose of the data processing and about your right of withdrawal. 


Forwarding to third parties

We will only share your data with third parties within the framework of applicable laws and regulations or with appropriate consent. Otherwise, data will not be shared with third parties unless we are obliged to do so by mandatory legal provisions (transfer to external bodies such as supervisory authorities or law enforcement authorities). 

We pass on contact data sent to us via forms on the MIWE website for specific purposes to affiliated companies to process and respond to your inquiry. This refers to the responsible MIWE subsidiary or the responsible retailer/service provider, which may be in a third country depending on the responsibility.


Recipients of data / Categories of recipients

In our company, we ensure that only those individuals receive your data who need this data to fulfil our contractual and legal obligations. 
In many cases, service providers support our operational departments in fulfilling their tasks. Necessary data protection agreements have been concluded with all service providers. 


Transfer to third countries / Intent to transfer data to third countries

Data is only transferred to third countries (outside the European Union or the European Economic Area) where this is required to implement a contractual obligation, legally mandated or you have consented to it. 

We pass on contact data sent to us via forms on the MIWE website for specific purposes to affiliated companies to process and respond to your inquiry. This refers to the responsible MIWE subsidiary or the responsible retailer/service provider, which may be in a third country depending on the responsibility.


Duration of data storage

We save your data for as long as it is required for the respective processing purpose. Please note that numerous archival periods require that data (must) be stored further. This includes in particular commercial or taxation law archival periods (e.g. German Commercial Code, German Fiscal Code, etc.). If there are no further archival requirements, the data is deleted routinely after the purpose is achieved. 

In addition, we can store data if you have consented to this or if legal disputes occur and we use evidence within the scope of legal statutes of limitations, which can be up to thirty years; the standard statute of limitations is three years.


Secure transfer of your data

We have taken appropriate technical and organisational security measures to protect the data we store from accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction or access by unauthorised parties. Security levels are constantly monitored in cooperation with security experts and adjusted for compliance with new security standards.

All incoming and outgoing data sharing on our website is encrypted. We offer HTTPS as a transfer protocol for our website, using the latest encryption protocols. Alternative communication methods, e.g. post, can also be used.


Obligation to provide data

Various personal data is necessary for the establishment, performance and termination of the contractual relationship and the fulfilment of the associated contractual and legal obligations. The same applies for the use of our website and the various functions it provides. 

We summarised details about this in the point above. In certain cases, data must be collected or provided due to legal requirements. Please note that we cannot process your inquiry or complete the underlying contractual obligation without provision of this data.


Categories, sources and origin of data

The data we process is determined by the context in question: for example, it depends on whether you place an order online or enter an inquiry in our contact form, or send us an application or submit a complaint. 

Please note that we may also provide information separately in suitable locations for specific processing situations, e.g. when uploading application documents or making contact requests. 

All data is anonymised immediately. Complete personal data is never saved, neither on our web server nor via Google Analytics.


Automated individual decision-making

We do not use purely automated processing operations for decision-making purposes.


Links to other providers

Our website also contains clearly identifiable links to the websites of other companies. We have no control over the content of these websites. Therefore, we also accept no responsibility or liability for this content. The respective provider or operator is always responsible for the content of these sites.

Linked websites were checked for possible violations of the law and any recognisable legal infringements when the links were created. No illegal content was found at that time. The linked websites will not be monitored on an ongoing basis unless there is concrete evidence of a violation. If we become aware of any violations, such links will be removed promptly.


Cookies (Art. 6 (1) section (f) GDPR / Art. 6 (1) section (a) GDPR with consent)

Our websites only use temporary session cookies (small text files) in the browser's main memory, which are deleted again when the browser is closed. Cookies make our web presence more user-friendly, effective and secure. 

They allow us to analyse how users use our website. By doing this, we can design our website content to meet the needs of visitors. Most web browsers accept cookies automatically. You can usually change your browser's settings if you would rather not send this information.


Google Analytics

Based on your consent per Art. 6 (1) section (a), Art. 7 GDPR, we make use of Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google LLC ("Google"). Google uses cookies. The information that a cookie generates about the user's use of the website is usually sent to a Google server in the US and stored there. Google is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement, which provides a guarantee to comply with European data protection law (https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active).
Google will use this information on our behalf to analyse the use of our website by the user, to compile reports on activities within the site and provide other services related to the use of this website and the internet for us. Pseudonymous usage profiles of users can be produced from the data processed.

We only use Google Analytics with IP anonymisation active. That means that the user's IP address will first be truncated by Google within the Member States of the European Union or other countries subject to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases is the complete IP address transmitted to a Google server in the US and truncated there.

The IP address transmitted from the user's browser will not be combined with other Google data. Users can prevent cookies from being stored by configuring their browser software accordingly. Users can also prevent the data generated by the cookie related to their use of the website from being recorded by Google as well as the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.

For further information on data use by Google, configuration and objection options, see Google's privacy policy (https://policies.google.com/technologies/ads) and the settings for advertising displayed by Google (https://adssettings.google.com/authenticated).

For further information on data use by Google, configuration and objection options, see Google's privacy policy (https://policies.google.com/technologies/ads) and the settings for advertising displayed by Google (https://adssettings.google.com/authenticated).

The user's personal data is deleted after 14 months


Google Tag Manager (GTM)

This website uses Google Tag Manager. This service allows website tags to be managed via an interface. Google Tag Manager only implements tags. That means that no cookies are used and no personal data is recorded. Google Tag Manager triggers other tags, which in turn may record data. However, Google Tag Manager does not access this data. If deactivation was implemented at a domain or cookie level, it continues to apply for all tracking tags, provided they were implemented with the Google Tag Manager.


Google Maps integration

We use the Google Maps service on this website. That allows us to show you interactive maps directly in the website and makes it convenient for you to use the map function.
When you visit the website, Google is informed that you have accessed the corresponding sub-page of our website. The data collected on your visit to our website is also sent. This is done irrespective of whether Google provides a user account, and you are logged in, or whether you have no user account. When you are logged into Google, your data is attributed directly to your account. If you do not want your data to be attributed to your Google account, you must log out before clicking the button. Google saves your data as user profiles and uses it for advertising, market research and/or needs-based website design purposes. Evaluation of this kind is conducted (even for users who are not logged in) to provide needs-based advertising and to inform other users of the social network of your activities on our website. You have a right to object to this formation of user profiles, but you must contact Google to exercise it.
See the provider's privacy policies for further information on the purpose and scope of data collected and its processing by the plug-in provider. You will also receive further information on your rights in this matter and configuration options to protect your privacy: http://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy. Google also processes your personal data in the USA and adheres to the EU-US Privacy Shield, https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework.


etracker


The provider of this website uses the services of etracker GmbH from Hamburg, Germany (www.etracker.com) to analyse usage data. We generally do not use cookies for purposes of web analysis. If we use analysis and optimisation cookies, we will obtain your explicit consent separately in advance. If this is the case and you agree, cookies are used that enable a statistical range analysis of this website, a measurement of the success of our online marketing measures and test procedures, e.g. to test and optimise different versions of our online offer or its components . Cookies are small text files that are stored on the user's device by the internet browser. etracker cookies do not contain any information that would enable a user to be identified.

The data generated with etracker are processed and stored by etracker exclusively in Germany on behalf of the provider of this website and are therefore subject to strict German and European data protection laws and standards. In this regard, etracker has been independently checked, certified and awarded the ePrivacyseal data protection seal of approval.

The data processing is carried out on the basis of the legal provisions of Art. 6 Paragraph 1 lit. f (legitimate interest) of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Our concern within the meaning of the GDPR (legitimate interest) is the optimisation of our online offer and our website. Since the privacy of our visitors is important to us, the data that may allow a reference to an individual person, such as the IP address, login or device ID, is anonymised or pseudonymised as soon as possible. This data will not be used for any other purpose, combined with other data or passed on to third parties.

You can object to the data processing described above at any time. The contradiction carries no adverse consequences.

Use of YouTube in enhanced data protection mode

To display videos, our site uses the provider YouTube LLC, 901 Cherry Avenue, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA, represented by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Normally, your IP address is sent to YouTube, and cookies are saved on your computer as soon as you access a page with embedded videos. However, we integrated our YouTube videos in enhanced data protection mode (when this is active, YouTube still contacts the Google DoubleClick service, but no personal data is evaluated according to Google's privacy policy). As a result, YouTube does not save any information on the visitor, unless they watch the video. When you click the video, your IP address is sent to YouTube and YouTube sees that you have watched the video. If you are logged in to YouTube, this information is also attributed to your user account (you can prevent this by logging out of YouTube before accessing the video).
We are not aware of possible collection and use of your data by YouTube, and cannot influence it. For further information, see YouTube's privacy policy at https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/ . For general information on handling and deactivation of cookies, we also refer to our general description in this privacy policy.


Contact form / E-mail contact (Art. 6 (1) sections (a), (b) GDPR)

Our website features contact forms which can be used to make contact electronically. When you write to us via the contact forms, we process the data you enter as part of the contact form directly to contact you and respond to your questions and requests.

We collect and process the following data as part of a contact inquiry:

  • Company
  • Title
  • Surname
  • Telephone number
  • Postal code and town
  • Information on requests and interests

We observe the principles of data economy and data avoidance by only requiring you to provide the data we absolutely need to contact you. This data is your form of address, surname, telephone, postal code and town, as well as the message field itself. All other data are voluntary fields and can be provided optionally (e.g. to answer your questions more individually).

If you consent to receiving occasional information on interesting news about our products and services, we also save your e-mail address. You then receive an e-mail with a confirmation link as part of the legally required double opt-in process. When you click this link, we save the data listed below.

  • Data and time of the entry
  • IP address
  • User agent / Browser
  • Operating system
  • E-mail address
  • Unsubscribe ID
  • Subscription status (presubscribed or subscribed)


Use of your data for direct marketing purposes

Subscribing to our e-mail newsletter

When you subscribe to our e-mail newsletter, we send you information about our product offerings on a regular basis. Your e-mail address is the only information we require for sending the newsletter. Any other data is provided voluntarily and will be used to personalise our correspondence with you. We use the so-called double opt-in process for sending the newsletter. This means that we will not send you an e-mail newsletter until we receive your explicit confirmation of consent for receiving our newsletters. We will then send you a confirmation e-mail asking you to click a link to confirm that you want to receive newsletters in the future.

By clicking the confirmation link, you grant us your consent to the use of your personal data in accordance with Art. 6 (1) section (a) GDPR. When you subscribe to the newsletter, we store your IP address as recorded by the Internet Service Provider (ISP) as well as the date and time of subscription so that we may trace any possible misuse of your e-mail address at a later date. The data collected by us when you subscribe to the newsletter will be used exclusively for the purpose of advertising by means of the newsletter. You can unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time by clicking the unsubscribe link in the newsletter or by sending a message to the responsible party named above. Once you have cancelled, your email address is immediately deleted from our newsletter distribution list, unless you have expressly consented to other use of your data or we have reserved the right to use data in a different way that is permitted by law and about which we have informed you in this policy.

We pass on contact data that you have sent to us for newsletter registration using forms on the MIWE website and confirmed this by means of the double opt-in procedure to affiliated companies for processing. This referrs to the responsible MIWE subsidiary, which, depending on the area of responsibility, may also be located in another country.

Distribution of newsletters via MailChimp

Our e-mail newsletters are sent via the technical service provider The Rocket Science Group, LLC d/b/a MailChimp, 675 Ponce de Leon Ave NE, Suite 5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA (mailchimp.com), to whom we pass on the data you provided when you registered for the newsletter. This data is passed on as part of order processing. We have concluded the necessary data protection agreement with the service provider. Please note that your data is usually transferred to a MailChimp server in the USA and stored there.
MailChimp uses this information to send and statistically evaluate the newsletter on our behalf. For evaluation purposes, the newsletter e-mails contain web beacons or tracking pixels, which are single-pixel image files stored on our website. This allows us to determine whether a newsletter message has been opened and which links have been clicked on. MailChimp uses the web beacons to automatically generate general, non-personal statistics on the response to newsletter campaigns. In order to optimise advertising communications and tailor our advertising to the interest of recipients, the web beacons also collect and process data from the newsletter recipient (e-mail address, time of retrieval, IP address, browser type and operating system) (Art. 6 (1) section (a) GDPR). This data can be used to identify a specific newsletter recipient and is processed by MailChimp in order to automatically generate statistics that indicate whether a certain recipient has opened a newsletter message.

If you wish to object to the data analysis for statistical evaluation purposes, you must unsubscribe from the newsletter.

Pursuant to Art. 6 (1) section (f) GDPR, MailChimp itself may use this data based on its own legitimate interest in tailoring and optimising the service to meet user requirements as well as for market research purposes, for example to geolocate recipients by country. However, MailChimp does not use the data of our newsletter recipients to address those recipients nor to pass such data on to third parties. You can view MailChimp's data protection provisions here: www.mailchimp.com/legal/privacy/
To protect your data in the USA, we have concluded a data processing agreement with MailChimp on the basis of the standard contractual clauses of the European Commission To enable the transmission of your personal data to MailChimp. You may view this data processing agreement here: www. mailchimp.com/legal/forms/data-processing-agreement/
MailChimp is also certified under the "Privacy Shield", a US-European data protection agreement, and thus undertakes to comply with EU data protection regulations.

MIWE shop baking suite (Art. 6 (1) Sections (a), (b) EU-GDPR)

We also provide access to our shop baking suite on our website.

This application enables customers to manage their connected MIWE ovens and baking systems via remote Internet access to control systems.

Customers must conclude a contract with MIWE in order to use the shop baking suite. MIWE registers the customer and the customer's first user. All other users can be registered by the customer.

During this process, the principle of data economy and data avoidance is observed, as only the data necessary for sign-up is requested. These include the last name, first name, preferred language, e-mail address, phone number, and details about your customer status and authorisation group.

Following successful registration, you will receive an e-mail from MIWE asking you to create your own password for logging in with your unique user name.

You can then use the shop baking suite by logging in with your unique user credentials (user name and password). When you use the shop baking suite, your IP address as well as the date and time are also stored (technical background data).

Registered users are free to make changes to their data themselves

Users with administrative privileges can also delete other users of the customer. This is a so-called soft delete, meaning the data is no longer visible but still exists. This data is not actually deleted until the contractual relationship between MIWE and the customer is terminated.

Please note: The password you create is saved in encrypted form by us. Our employees cannot read this password. This means that they are unable to provide any information if you have forgotten your password. In this case, use the "Have you forgotten your password?" option, which sends you a new automatically generated password by e-mail. No employee is entitled to request your password by phone or in writing. Therefore, please never reveal your password if you receive such a request.


Use of Google AdWords conversion tracking for online marketing purposes

This website uses the online advertising platform "Google AdWords" as well as the conversion tracking feature of Google AdWords provided by Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA ("Google"). We use the services of Google AdWords to draw attention to our services by means of advertising materials (so-called Google AdWords) on external websites. We can determine how successful our advertising measures are on the basis of the data from the advertising campaigns. We are interested in showing you advertisements that are of interest to you, in making our website more interesting for you, and in achieving a fair calculation of advertising costs.

The conversion tracking cookie is added when a user clicks on an ad delivered by Google. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer system. These cookies usually lose their validity after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. If the user visits a certain page of this website and the cookie has not yet expired, we and Google will be able to see that the user clicked on the ad and was forwarded to this page. Each Google Ads customer is assigned a different cookie. Therefore cookies cannot be traced via the websites of AdWords customers. The information collected by the conversion cookies is used to provide aggregate conversion statistics to Google AdWords customers who have opted in to conversion tracking. Customers are informed about the total number of users who clicked on the ad and were forwarded to a conversion tracking tag page. However, they do not receive any information enabling them to identify users personally. If you do not want to participate in the tracking program, you can opt out by disabling the Google Conversion Tracking cookie in your Internet browser settings. In this case, you will not be included in the conversion tracking statistics. We use Google AdWords on the basis of our legitimate interest in targeted advertising in accordance with Art. 6 (1) section (f) GDPR.

In the event that personal data is transferred to Google LLC, based in the United States, Google LLC is certified for the "Privacy Shield", a US-European data protection agreement that guarantees compliance with the data protection level applicable in the EU.

Facebook Custom Audiences

Users of Facebook should note that this website uses Facebook's Website Custom Audiences communication tool.
For this purpose, so-called Facebook pixels are integrated on our websites, which mark you as a visitor to our website in an anonymous form, i.e. without identifying you as a person. If you are later logged into Facebook, a non-reversible and thus non-personal checksum (profile) from your usage data is transmitted to Facebook for analysis and marketing purposes. For more information about the purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Facebook as well as your setting options to protect your privacy, please refer to the Facebook data protection guidelines, which can be found at https://www.facebook.com/ads/website_custom_audiences/ and https://www.facebook.com/privacy/explanation. If you would like to object to the use of Facebook Website Custom Audiences, you can do so at https://www.facebook.com/ads/website_custom_audiences/.

Bing Ads (Microsoft Corporation)

This website uses Microsoft's Bing Ads conversion tracking technology (Microsoft Corporation, One Microsoft Way, Redmond, WA 98052-6399, USA). Microsoft Bing Ads add a cookie to your computer when you access our website via a Microsoft Bing ad. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer system. These cookies lose their validity after 180 days and are not used for personal identification. If the user visits a certain page of this website and the cookie has not yet expired, we and Microsoft will be able to see that the user clicked on the ad and was forwarded to this page (conversion page). Any personal data processed in this context are processed in accordance with Art. 6 (1) section (f) GDPR based on our legitimate interest in effective marketing.

The information collected using the conversion cookie is used to generate conversion statistics, i.e., to record how many users reach a conversion page after clicking an ad. We use this information to learn about the total number of users who clicked on our ad and were forwarded to a conversion tracking tag page. However, we do not receive any information that enables us to identify users personally.
The US-based Microsoft Corporation is certified for the "Privacy Shield", a US-European data protection agreement that guarantees compliance with the data protection level applicable in the EU.

If you do not want to participate in the tracking program, you can opt out by disabling the Google Conversion Tracking cookie in your Internet browser settings. In this case, you will not be included in the conversion tracking statistics. Alternatively, you can go to the opt-out page for EU consumers www.youronlinechoices.com/de/praferenzmanagement/, check whether Microsoft advertising cookies are enabled for your browser and disable them.

Google AdWords remarketing

Our website uses Google AdWords remarketing to advertise this website in Google search results as well as on third-party websites. This service is provided by Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”). For this purpose, Google adds a cookie to the browser of your device, which automatically enables interest-based advertising on the pages you visit using a pseudonymous cookie ID. This data is processed on the basis of our legitimate interest in ensuring the best possible marketing of our website pursuant to Art. 6 (1) section (f) GDPR.

No additional data processing will take place unless you have explicitly allowed Google to link your Internet and app browsing history to your Google account and to use the information from your Google account to show you personalised ads on the web. In this case, if you are logged in to Google when you visit our website, Google uses your data together with Google Analytics data to create and define audience lists for cross-device remarketing. For this purpose, Google will temporarily link your personal data to Google Analytics data in order to create audiences.

You can permanently disable cookies for ad personalisation by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at: www.google.com/settings/ads/onweb/
