We are very pleased that you are interested in our company. Data protection is particularly important to
the Management at CIMCO Werkzeuge GmbH & Co. KG. In principle, it is possible to use CIMCO Werkzeuge GmbH & Co. KG website without providing any personal data. However, if a data subject would like to make use of particular services provided by our company via our website, it may be necessary for us to process personal data. If processing personal data is necessary and if there is no legal basis for such data processing, then as a general rule, we will obtain permission from the data subject.
Processing personal data, for example the name, address, e-mail address or telephone number of a data subject, will always be carried out in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation and with the country-specific data protection regulations applicable for CIMCO Werkzeuge GmbH & Co. KG. Our
company would like to use this data protection declaration to inform the public about the nature, extent, and purpose of collecting, using, and processing personal data. Furthermore, data subjects are informed by means of this data protection declaration about the rights they are entitled to.
As the controller, CIMCO Werkzeuge GmbH & Co. KG has implemented numerous technical and organisational measures to ensure protection which is as comprehensive as possible of personal data processed via this website. Despite this, in principle, Internet-based data transmissions can have security gaps which means that absolute protection cannot be ensured. For this reason, every data subject has the option of transmitting personal data to us using an alternative method, for example by telephone.

On the CIMCO Werkzeuge GmbH & Co. KG website, the users are given the opportunity to subscribe to our company's newsletter. What personal data is transmitted to the controller when subscribing to the newsletter depends on what is entered in the input screen used for this purpose.
CIMCO Werkzeuge GmbH & Co. KG informs its customers and business partners at
regular intervals about company offers in a newsletter. As a general rule, our company newsletter can be only be received by the data subject if (1) the data subject has a valid e-mail address and (2) the data subject has egistered to receive the newsletter. For legal reasons, to receive the newsletter, a confirmation e-mail is sent out in the double-opt-in process to an e-mail address provided by a data subject for the first time. This confirmation e-mail is to confirm whether the owner of the e-mail address authorised receipt of the newsletter as the data subject.
When registering for the newsletter, we also save the IP address provided by the Internet Service Provider (ISP) of the computer system used by the data subject at the time of registration as well as the date and time of registration. It is necessary to acquire this data to be able to trace any possible misuse of the e-mail address
of a data subject at a later point in time and is therefore used to legally protect the controller.
The personal data collected in regard to registration for the newsletter will only be used to send out the newsletter. Furthermore, subscribers to the newsletter can be informed by e-mail providing this is necessary for operating the newsletter service or this type of registration is required, for example as could be the case with changes to the newsletter offering or changes to technical conditions. No personal data collected in regard to the newsletter service will be passed on to any third party. The subscription to our newsletter can be cancelled at any time. The consent to saving personal data which the data subject issued us with to send out the newsletter can be revoked at any time.

Furthermore there is the option of unsubscribing directly on the website of the controller for newsletter distribution or the controller can be informed of this in other ways.
7. Newsletter tracking
The CIMCO Werkzeuge GmbH & Co. KG newsletters contain so-called tracking pixels. A tracking pixel is miniature graphics embedded in such e-mails which are sent in HTML format to allow recording of a log file and log file analysis. This then allows a statistical evaluation of the success or lack of success of
online marketing campaigns. On the basis of the embedded tracking pixel, CIMCO Werkzeuge GmbH & Co. KG can see when an e-mail has been opened by a data subject and which links in the e-mail that the data subject opened.
Personal data obtained from such tracking pixels in the newsletters is saved and evaluated by the controller to optimise newsletter dispatch and to adapt the content of future newsletters even better to the interests of the data subject. This personal data will not be passed onto third parties. Data subjects are entitled at any time to revoke this specific, separate informed consent given using the double-opt-in process.

automatically interpret unsubscribing from receiving the e-mail as a revocation.
