So that you feel safe when ordering and purchasing and when visiting our websites, we conform strictly to statutory regulations and therefore provide below details of how we handle your data. In agreeing to the following data protection statement, you are consenting to the collection, processing and use of your personal data with due regard to data protection law and the following provisions.

2. What data do we collect and process and what do we do with it?

Personal data
Personal data is information about the material or personal circumstances of an identified or identifiable individual. This can include, for example, your name, your telephone number, your address, and all data you provide us during registration and when setting up your customer account (customer requirements). This does not include statistical data that we collect, for example when you access our customer requirements, and which cannot be directly associated with you personally (e.g. number of storage tanks).

Customer account
We set up a customer account for every customer who orders from us or requests an offer.
Collection, processing and use of your personal data
We collect, store and process your data to process your purchase, including any warranty period, as well as for technical administration and for our own marketing purposes. Your personal data will only be passed to third parties or otherwise transmitted if this is necessary for the purposes of fulfilling the contract or invoicing, or if you have previously given consent. The ordering process involves, for example, service providers who we use (e.g. shipping companies) receiving the data necessary for ordering and processing. The data disclosed to them may only be used by our service providers to fulfil their role. No other use of the information is permitted and none takes place with any of the service providers we engage. We require your correct name, address and payment details for your order. We also require your email address so that we can confirm receipt of your order and communicate with you. Moreover, you receive confirmation of shipping and the invoice via your email address.

Use of your data for advertising purposes
Besides processing your data to fulfil your purchase from us, we also use your data to communicate with you about your orders, specific products or marketing actions, and to recommend products or services that might interest you.

Recommending products to customers
As our customer, you will occasionally receive product recommendations from us by email. You will receive these product recommendations regardless whether you subscribe to our newsletter. We want to update you about the products in our range which, based on your previous purchases, we believe might interest you. At the same time, we strictly adhere to the statutory regulations. You can find information about your right to object under point 7 below.

I hereby consent to Feralco using the data I provide and other information relating to my customer account as well as pseudonymised usage data to present personalised advertising and/or special offers and services.

5. Credit check 

In order to offer you the best choice of payment method, we have to protect you and ourselves against misuse. As such, we send the personal data (first name and surname, address details) necessary for a credit check to the Verband der Vereine Creditreform e.V., Hellersbergstrasse 12, 41460 Neuss, which undertakes the assessment using a mathematical/statistical process. We use the information received on the statistical probability of default (probability value) to make a considered decision on the payment options we offer you. You may object to the transfer of your data to Creditreform at any time.
