DATA PRIVACY STATEMENT
Our company NIKOSAX A/S, subsidiary to UNION TANK Eckstein GmbH & Co. KG is aware of the fact that protection of privacy is an important issue for you when visiting our website and while dealing with us as partners or customers. We take the protection of your privacy very seriously. Therefore we want you to know when and which of your data (personal and non-personal) we save and how your data is used. This data privacy statement is thence meant to inform you about the measures which we take for data security.
Our use of your non-personal business data is only purpose and consent driven. With regards to personal data, we have adopted internal policies and measures which meet General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) principles of privacy by design and data protection by default.
The GDPR approved on 14th April 2016 and published in the EU Official Journal on 4th May 2016 applies in all EU Member States from 25th May 2018. It will repeal and replace Directive 95/46EC and its Member State implementing legislation.
The concept of accountability is at the heart of the GDPR rules: this means that organisations within the EU or outside the EU who target EU residents must in compliance with GDPR increase transparency and fairness in the handling of individual personal information. Personal information here refers to any information relating to an identifiable individual (referred to in the statute as a data subject).
At NIKOSAX, Data subjects may include: business customers who may have a sole proprietorship or persons affiliated with a company that is our customer or partner. Get more insight into our privacy protection measures below.
In line with GDPR rules, all employees of NIKOSAX A/S are obligated to adhere to data secrecy issues.
COLLECTION OF DATA
Personal data will only be collected, when you voluntarily provide it to us, e. g. by completing our forms or by sending e-mails within the scope of ordering products or services, or by making inquiries or requests for information materials. The database and its contents will remain with our company and with our service provider. However, personal data will in no way be forwarded to any third party neither by us nor by any party charged by us, unless: you have agreed hereto, its within the scope of fulfilling contractual obligations, its for the information of our customers, business partners, and/or service providers, or if its in fulfillment of legal obligations in connection with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c of the GDPR.
From company representatives of our customers and partners, Nikosax may require all or some of the following personal information depending on the instance of MSR (Member State of Refund) and the documentations requisite: basic personal information; i.e. name, contact data, copy of passport and address (in case of a one-person company).
From our web portal, it is possible as a matter of principle to browse without having to disclose any personal data. However, when opening our website, data is saved for backup purposes – data such as the name of your internet service provider, the website from where you visited our site, and your IP address. These data would possibly enable an identification, however, we do not effect any individual-related exploitation. The data can be evaluated for the purpose of statistics, but the individual user always remains anonymous. Where data is transmitted to an external service provider, we have ensured – by means of technical and organisational measures – that the provisions relating to data protection/privacy is always adhered to.
