PRIVACY STATEMENT

In general

Please be aware that there are inherent security risks in transmitting data, such as e-mails, via the Internet since it is impossible to safeguard completely against unauthorized access by third parties. Nevertheless, we shall safeguard your data subject to this limitation. In particular, personal information will be transmitted via the Internet only if it does not infringe upon third-party rights, unless the respective party has given its prior consent in view of such security risks. As the Web site provider, we shall accordingly not be held liable for any damages incurred as a consequence of such security risks or for any related acts of omission on our part.

We oppose the use of available contact information by a third party for sending unsolicited advertisements. As BESA GmbH, we reserve the express right to take legal action against unsolicited mailing or e-mailing of spam or other similar advertising materials.

BESA’s Data Protection

At BESA GmbH we collect information about our users for two main purposes:

  1. In order to provide services to our users. We collect, process, store and use personal data only if this is necessary in providing a service. In order to protect your data, we naturally adhere to all rules and regulations concerning data handling and data management, in particular to those concerning the access-protected storage of user data. The personal data of our users remain at BESA and will not be forwarded to third parties. Only in cases where this is required by law, BESA will forward personal data to the body specified by the applicable law, for example, in the case of an incident report.
  2. Which e-mails will you receive if you supply your e-mail address?

    • After obtaining your consent, we will only use your e-mail address for sending you the BESA newsletter, which is published no more than once a month. You can unsubscribe from this service at any time by following a link that appears at the end of every newsletter.
    • You will only receive e-mails from us if you have explicitly agreed to do so.
  3. To improve the user navigation on our website. We want users to be able to access the information they need with minimum effort. For this purpose, we collect and analyze information about the way users access our website, and how users navigate through the website. User-identifiable information is anonymized before analysis takes place.
