We take the protection of your personal data very seriously and therefore handle the data you entrust to us with great care and use it only for purposes to which you have entitled us or for which there is a legal basis. We therefore process your data only in accordance with the legal regulations (DSGVO, DSG, TKG 2003).
Data processing through accessing our website and using our applications
Personal data is data about you. This includes, among other things, your name, address and email address. As a matter of principle, you do not have to divulge any personal data in order to visit our website.
Fröling automatically collects and stores information that your browser or App transmits to us in our server log files. This consists of browser type/version, operating system used, referral URL, host name of the accessing computer, and time of server request.
This data is anonymized, and used only for statistical purposes or to improve our internet and online services. This anonymized data is stored separately from personal data on secure systems, and cannot be attributed to individual persons. This means that your personal information remains protected at all times.
Through the appropriate settings of your browser, the Apps or the operating system environment (iOS, Android), you can prevent the transmission of such data, but this may lead to problems with the access, operation or functionality of the content or service offered.
The data processing in connection with the associated cookies and analysis or tracking tools is based on legitimate interests (improvement of our offer and the website) and consent of the user (through the settings of the web browser).
Google Adwords Conversion Tracking
As a Google AdWords customer, Fröling uses Google Conversion Tracking, an analytics service provided by Google LLC (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; "Google"). Google AdWords places a cookie on your computer ("conversion cookie") if you have reached our website via a Google Ad. These cookies expire after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. If you visit certain of our pages and the cookie has not expired, we and Google may recognize that someone clicked on the Ad and was redirected to our site. Each AdWords customer is attributed a unique cookie. Cookies therefore cannot be tracked through the websites of advertisers. The information gathered with the aid of conversion cookies is used to generate conversion statistics for AdWords advertisers who have opted for conversion tracking. Advertisers will see the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a conversion tracking tag page. However, they do not receive information that personally identifies users.
Use and disclosure of personal data - General:
In some cases, we require your name and address, as well as additional information, in order to offer you the desired service. If you choose not to provide us with your personal information, you may be unable to obtain certain information, services or benefits.
Personal data is only stored and processed if you give it to us for this particular purpose, e.g. in the context of a registration, to answer your inquiries, for processing completed contracts, competition/seminar processing, technical administration, login activities and provided services within the respective webpages or Apps , as well as in the scope of fulfillment of legal (storage) regulations. The legal bases for the respective data processing are therefore: contract initiation, fulfillment of the contract, legal obligations, consent, and the legitimate interests of Fröling.
Your personal data will only be transmitted to third parties if this is necessary for the purpose of contract execution - for example, the forwarding of order data and inquiries to suppliers or distribution partners - or for billing purposes, if you have given your consent or if this is provided for by the law. Internally, only those places that need your data will receive it for any given purpose. Recipient categories, dependent on the respective processing purpose, include the following: Banks, insurance companies, tax consultants, suppliers, service providers, authorities, legal representatives, distribution partners, IT service providers, companies within the corporate group.
There is no intention to transfer your data to third party countries or to international organizations. Should this be necessary in exceptional cases, it will be done in compliance with all data protection regulations.
The deletion of stored personal data will occur if you revoke your consent to processing and no other legal basis for storage exists, if its knowledge is no longer necessary to fulfill the purpose of processing, if its storage is unacceptable for other legal reasons, if statutory retention periods have expired, or if limitation periods of potential legal claims have expired.

Business relationship - contractor
In the context of business relationships (for example, with customers, suppliers, and also with regard to seminars), the data disclosed or collected for this purpose is processed for the purpose of performing the contract. This is done according to the legal basis of the contract.
(Contact) data from contact persons of the contractual partners (if this is not a natural person), as well as (contact) data of seminar participants is processed by us on the basis of legitimate interest, this being for the purpose of traceability of responsibilities and ensuring of a proper performance.
The data is retained for the duration of the business relationship or fulfillment of the contract and beyond for at least as long as there are legal retention periods, or while statutory periods of potential legal claims have not yet expired.

For this we require your email address and your consent that you agree to receiving the newsletter. This data is processed only for the purpose of sending out the newsletter (customer information). Your consent constitutes the legal basis for processing. You can unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time. We will delete your data in connection with the newsletter dispatch immediately, or at the latest after the expiration of limitation periods with regard to potential legal claims.

If you object to the processing of your data for direct marketing purposes, this personal data will no longer be used for such purposes. If data is processed by us for other purposes on the basis of legitimate interest, then we will no longer process such personal data, unless we have compelling legitimate reasons for the processing that outweighs your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing is in the scope of the assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims.
