This includes all information about your identity such as your name, your e-mail address or postal address, your customer number and online identifiers. Information that cannot be linked to your identity (such as the number of online users), on the other hand, is not personally identifiable information.

You can use our online and mobile offers without revealing your identity and without providing any personal data. When using our online shop, the BlueHorizon portal, the apps and some services of the Miele website and the apps, however, collect your personal information.

Your personal data is encrypted and transmitted over the Internet. We use SSL encryption (Secure Socket Layer) for data transmission.

 

Legal basis of data processing

Insofar as we obtain consent for the processing of your personal data, Art. 6(1) lit. (a) GDPR serves as the legal basis for data processing.

Insofar as your personal data is processed because this is necessary to fulfil a contract or in the context of a contract-like relationship with you, Art. 6(1) lit. (b) GDPR serves as the legal basis for data processing.

Insofar as we process your personal data in order to fulfil a legal obligation, Art. 6(1) lit. (c) GDPR serves as the legal basis for data processing.

As a legal basis for the data processing, Art. 6(1) lit. (f) GDPR applies if the processing of your personal data is necessary to safeguard the legitimate interests of our company or a third party and your interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms do not require the protection of your personal data.

As part of this Privacy Policy, we will always state the legal basis on which we base the processing of your personal data.

 

Destruction of data and storage duration

We always delete or block your personal data whenever the purpose of the storage is omitted.

In addition, the Google cookies allow us to understand whether you are performing certain actions on our website after you have viewed or clicked on one of our ads on Google or on another platform (Conversion Tracking) (“Floodlight”). Google uses this cookie to understand the content with which you have interacted on our web sites so that it can later send you targeted advertising.

On our website we use various cookies for analysis purposes that are provided and/or used by Google Ireland Limited ("Google"), a company incorporated and regulated under Irish law (registration number: 368047) with its registered office at Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland ("Google"). Further information about these Google Services can be found below and at https://www.google.com/privacy/ads/.

4.1.1 Google Analytics

Our website uses Google Analytics to design and improve the website in line with demand. Google Analytics uses so-called cookies, which are stored on your end device and which enable an analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. On this website, we use the extension of IP masking (so-called IP masking), i.e. your IP address is shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area before being transferred to, and stored in, the USA. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there.

5. Marketing cookies

For the purpose of retargeting/remarketing and for the placement of online advertisements we use so-called marketing cookies from third parties.

Retargeting or remarketing refers to technologies that allow users who have previously visited a certain website to see suitable advertisements even after they have left the website. For this purpose, it is necessary to recognize Internet users beyond a website owners’ website, for which cookies from the corresponding service providers are used. In addition, the previous usage behaviour is taken into account. For example, if a user looks at certain products, these or similar products can later be displayed as advertisements on other websites. These are personalised advertisements that are adapted to the needs of individual users. For this personalised advertising, it is not necessary for the user to be identified beyond recognition. The data used for retargeting or remarketing is therefore not merged with other data.

Marketing cookies may also track user engagement with the ads ultimately shown. This is in order to avoid unwanted duplicate advertising and to track the amount of times ads result in some form of ad conversion (e.g. an ad being clicked on or an actual sale).

The legal basis for the processing of personal data through marketing cookies is consent (Article 6(1)(a) GDPR), You can withdraw your consent at any time with effect for the future, in the cookie settings in our “Privacy Preference Center”.

We use such technologies for the placement of online advertisements. For the placement of the advertisements we use third party providers. Details of the third parties (and their tools) who provide and/or access marketing and targeted cookies are explained below.

5.1 Facebook / Meta

On our website we use marketing cookie(s) provided and/or used by Meta, Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA (“Facebook” or “Meta”).

Facebook cookies are used if you have a Facebook account, use the Facebook Products, including the Facebook website and apps, or visit other websites and apps that use the Facebook Products (including the Like button or other Facebook Technologies). The Facebook cookies allow us to track your activities on our website in order analyse the effectiveness of our conversion funnel and to regularly improve our website. Furthermore, the Facebook cookies allow us to use the “Custom Audiences” remarketing feature of Facebook. This allows users of the website to be shown interest-based advertisements ("Facebook Ads") as part of their visit to the social network Facebook or other websites that also use the process. Please find more information to Facebook Conversion Tracking, Facebook Custom Audiences and related data processing activities in our privacy notice.

In addition, the Facebook cookies enable Facebook to offer the Facebook Products to you and to understand the information they receive about you, including information about your use of other websites and apps, whether or not you are registered or logged in.

The Facebook cookies receives the following types of data: Http Headers, Pixel specific Data, Button Click Data, Optional Values and Form Field Names. Further information about Facebook's cookies can be found here.

5.2 Google

As already outlined above, on our website we use various cookies for analytics and/or marketing purposes that are provided and/or used by Google. Further information about Google's privacy practices can be found at https://www.google.com/privacy/ads/. The further details table contains cookie names with variable identifiers, where <wpid> is web property ID or the measurement ID for Google Analytics 4, consisting of 10 characters (numbers and letters), [_<customname>] and <property-id> are property IDs in Google Analytics 3 (Universal Analytics), consisting of digits in the following pattern: UA-XXXXXXXX-X.

5.2.1 Google Ads

Google Ads is an online advertising platform developed by Google, where advertisers pay to display brief advertisements, service offerings, product listings, video content, and generate mobile application installs within the Google ad network to web users. It can place ads both in the results of search engines like Google Search and on non-search websites, mobile apps, and videos.

Further information about Google Ads can be found here.

5.2.2 Google Remarketing function

Google's remarketing function allows us to serve ads to our users on other sites within the Google Ads network (called "Google ads" or ads on other sites) based on their interests. To this end, we analyse user interaction on our website in order to be able to display targeted advertising to users on other sites even after they have visited our website. For this purpose, Google stores a number in the browsers of users who visit certain Google services or websites in the Google display network. This number, known as a "cookie," is used to track the visits of these users. This number is used to uniquely identify a web browser on a particular computer, not to identify an individual, and no personal data is stored.

In addition to being able to provide or withdraw your consent to the use of analytics and / or marketing cookies generally through the settings at the top of this policy, you can deactivate the use of cookies by Google by installing the plug-in provided under the following link: www.google.com/settings/ads/plugin.

5.2.3 Google Conversion Tracking

We also use Google's conversion tracking in this context. When you click on an ad placed by Google, a 30-day conversion tracking cookie is placed on your device. This cookie is not used for personal identification. The information collected using the conversion cookie is used to compile conversion statistics for Google Ads customers.

In addition to being able to provide or withdraw your consent to the use of analytics and / or marketing cookies generally through the settings at the top of this policy, you can disable interest-based Google ads on Google in your browser by clicking the "Off" button at https://adssettings.google.de/authenticated or by opting out at http://www.aboutads.info/choices/.

Our website also uses other services of the Google Marketing Platform (formerly "Google Doubleclick"). Campaign Manager 360 allows us to run ad campaigns and measure their performance. Display & Video 360 helps us manage display and video campaigns. Search Ads 360 is utilized to manage search campaigns across various search engines.  These services use cookies to deliver ads that are relevant to users, to improve campaign performance reports, or to prevent a user from receiving ads more than once.

Google uses a cookie ID to determine which ads are served in which browser and can thus prevent them from being shown more than once. Google may also use cookie IDs to track conversions, which is whether a user sees an ad and later visits the advertiser's website to make a purchase.

Your browser automatically establishes a direct connection with the Google server. According to Google, the integration of these services provides Google with the information that you have viewed the corresponding part of our website or clicked on an advertisement from us. If you are registered with a Google service, Google can assign the visit to your user account. Even if you are not registered with Google or have not logged in, it is possible that the provider will find out your IP address and save it.

In addition, cookies enable us to understand whether you perform certain actions on our website after you have viewed or clicked on one of our ads on Google or on another platform (conversion tracking) ("floodlight"). Google uses this cookie to understand the content that you have interacted with on our sites so that we can later send you targeted advertising.

In addition to being able to provide or withdraw your consent to the use of analytics and / or marketing cookies generally through the settings at the top of this policy, you can prevent tracking by changing your browser software settings (e.g., disabling third party cookies), disabling conversion tracking cookies by blocking cookies from the http://www.google.com/settings/ads/ domain in your browser settings, with respect to interest-based ads from providers that are part of the About Ads self-regulatory campaign, by clicking on the http://www.aboutads.info/choices link or by clicking on the www.googleadservices.com link. We would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all functions of the website to their full extent.
