In this Data Protection Policy, we – GEZOLAN AG – explain how we collect and process personal data. This Data Protection Policy is not an exhaustive description; where applicable, specific circumstances are regulated by other data protection policies, general terms and conditions, rules of participation and similar documents. Personal data refers to all information related to a particular or identifiable person.

If you provide us with personal data of other people (e.g., family members or colleagues), please ensure that these people are familiar with this Data Protection Policy, and provide us with their personal data only if you have their consent to do so and the personal data is correct.

This data protection policy complies with the requirements of the EU General Data Protection Regulation («GDPR»), the Swiss Ferdal Act on Data Protection («FADP») and the New Federal Act on Data Protection («nFADP»). Whether and to what extent these laws are applicable, will depend on the particular case.

2. Acquisition and processing of personal data

We process primarily personal data that we receive within the framework of business relations with our customers and other business partners from them and other involved parties, or which we collect from users of our websites, apps and other applications.

To the extent allowed, we also acquire certain data from publicly accessible sources (e.g., debt collection registers, land registers, commercial registers, the press, Internet) or receive such information from other companies within the KRAIBURG Group, from government offices and other third parties (e.g., credit information bureaus). In addition to your data that you provide to us directly, the categories of your personal data that we receive from third parties also comprises:

  • Information from public registers;
  • Information that we acquire in the course of governmental and court proceedings;
  • Information related to your occupational functions and activities (so that we can conclude and process transactions with your employer, for example);
  • Information about you in correspondence and meetings with third parties;
  • Credit information (if we conduct business with you personally);
  • Information about you that is given to us from people with whom you are associated (family, advisors, legal representatives), so we can conclude or process contracts with you or involving you (e.g., references, address for deliveries);
  • Powers of attorney;
  • Information for compliance with statutory regulations, such as combating money laundering and export restrictions;
  • Information from banks, insurance companies, sales partners and other contract parties of ours for utilization or rendering of services through you (e.g., payments or purchases made);
  • Information from media and the Internet about you (insofar as appropriate in the individual case, e.g., for job applications, press reviews, marketing/sales, etc.);
  • Your addresses and, if applicable, interests and other sociodemographic data (for marketing);
  • Data in connection with the use of the website (e.g., IP address, MAC address of the end device, information about your device and settings, cookies, date and time of visit, pages visited and content, functions used, referring website, location).

3. Purpose and legal grounds of data processing

We use the collected personal data primarily for concluding and processing contracts with our customers and business partners, in particular within the framework of development, production, marketing and trading of rubber granules and elastic covering systems made of rubber with our customers, and the purchase of products and services from our suppliers and sub-suppliers, as well as fulfillment of our legal obligations at home and abroad. If you are employed by such a customer or business partner, your personal data may also be affected by your position. In addition, we process personal data from yourself and others, insofar as permissible and deemed appropriate by us, for the following purposes, in which we (and occasionally also third parties) have a legitimate interest relevant to the purpose:

  • Offering and further developing our offers, services and websites, apps and other platforms on which we are present;
  • Communication with third parties and processing of their inquiries (e.g., job applications, media inquiries);
  • Review and optimization of processes for demand analysis for the purpose of direct customer contact and collection of personal data from publicly accessible sources for the purpose of customer acquisition;
  • Advertising and marketing (including the organization of events), insofar as you have not objected to the use of your data. If you are contacted by us as an existing customer for advertising purposes, you can object to this at any time. Your contact data will be included in a blocking list, and we will no longer contact you for advertising purposes.
  • Market and public opinion research, media observation;
  • Assertion of legal claims and defense in connection with legal disputes and official proceedings;
  • Prevention and clarification of legal offenses and other inappropriate behavior (e.g., in the form of internal examinations, data analysis for combating fraud);
  • Guaranteeing our operations, in particular of our IT systems, websites, apps and other platforms;
  • Video monitoring for maintaining domestic rights and other measures for IT, building and plant security, and protection of our employees and others, as well as valuables belonging to or entrusted to us (e.g., in the form of access controls, visitor lists, network and mail scanners, recording of phone calls);
  • Purchase and sale of business divisions, companies or parts of companies and other company law transactions, and in this connection, the transmission of personal data as well as measures for business controlling and for compliance with statutory and regulatory obligations, as well as internal regulations.

If you have granted us consent to process your personal data for particular purposes (e.g. for registering to receive newsletters or conducting background checks), we process your personal data within the scope and on the basis of this consent, insofar as we have no other legal grounds or require such. Consent that has been granted can be revoked at any time, which, however, has no effect on data already processed.
