1. Storage and processing of personal data

The Rettig ICC Group can store personal data in its CRM (Customer Relationship Management), ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) and marketing systems (together, the "Systems"). The data may include name, title, e-mail address, telephone number as well as company details. In addition, Google Analytics may collect data that is classified as personal data.

3. Consent to contact and storage of personal data

During the collection of personal data via forms on our websites, you may be asked to provide your name, your mail address, telephone number, website address as well as other details.  The Rettig ICC Group also collects equivalent personal data with the help of guides and calculation programs that can be downloaded from the website. During the collection of personal data via forms or downloaded guides/programs, the person concerned should tick the box if he or she would like to receive marketing from us or be contacted by us (opt-in). The consent as well as its date are automatically stored in the Systems.

A written consent (via e-mail) is collected from the relevant person for entry into the Systems, unless the individual himself/herself concerned has signed up or given notification, for example, via forms on the website.

Personal data can also be entered into the Systems based on the professional role and/or the employer one represents. The processing of this personal data can be done if the processing complies with article 6 of the Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council on the protection of natural persons with regard to the processing of personal data (General Data Protection Regulation or "GDPR") is necessary for purposes that concern the Rettig ICC Group or a third party's legitimate interests, provided that the interests or the fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject are not overriding and require protection of the relevant personal data. Based on this balance of interest, your personal data may be collected via direct contact with someone in the Rettig ICC Group, from publicly available sources (for example, your company's website) or from other register.

The personal data you provide to the Rettig ICC Group helps us in two ways:

1.            We can personalise your experience and deliver the type of content and product offerings that interest you the most.

2.            We can improve our website so it will be more useful to you.

We need your e-mail address to:

•             Send information that may be of interest to you, respond to requests and/or other questions.

•             To be able to contact you when there are changes in our assortment or offering, which we consider it would be good for you to know about.

4. How long is personal data stored

The Rettig ICC Group regularly reviews the personal data in the Systems. We update and correct the data of our own accord and delete data regarding people who have informed us that they no longer wish to receive our marketing. Data regarding inactive individuals is deleted in accordance with the Rettig ICC Group's Data Protection and Privacy Policy, even if the person has not informed us that he or she wants the personal data deleted.

At any time, you can cancel your subscription to mailings from us by selecting "unsubscribe" from mailings.
