Data protection notice
The Bosch Group (Bosch) is pleased that you have visited our Internet site and are interested in our company and products.
Bosch respects your privacy
The protection of your privacy in the processing of personal data as well as the protection of all business data is a matter of great concern to us, as reflected in our business processes. All personal data gathered during your visit to our Internet site will be treated confidentially and strictly in accordance with the relevant statutory provisions. Data protection and information security are an integral part of our corporate policy.
Bosch websites can contain links to websites of other parties; these are not covered by this data protection declaration.
Collection and processing of personal data
Other personal data will only be stored if you specifically enter them on the site, e.g. during registration, when completing a survey, or in executing a contract.
Use, dissemination and restrictions on use of personal data
Bosch uses your personal data for technical administration purposes connected with its Internet pages, for customer relationship management, for product surveys and for marketing, in each case only to the required extent. We will not pass on your data to any third parties external to the Bosch Group without your consent.
Data collection using Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service offered by Google Inc. ("Google"). There is a contract between Bosch Industriekessel GmbH and Google Inc. concerning data processing in the sense of Section 11 of the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG). Google Analytics uses what are known as "cookies": these are text files that are stored on your computer and make it possible to analyse how you use the website. The usage information generated by a cookie is usually transferred to Google's server in the USA, where it is also stored. If, however, you activate IP anonymising on this website, Google will first shorten your IP address within European Union member states as well as other states that are signatories to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. In exceptional cases only, the full IP address will be transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. Google uses this information on behalf of the operator of this website to assess how you use the website, compile reports about website activity, and provide the website operator with other services linked to website and Internet usage. Google will not combine the IP address transferred from your browser for Google Analytics with other data. You can prevent cookies from being stored on your computer by making a setting in your browser software; however, please note that this may mean you are unable to use all the functions of the website to their full extent. Additionally, you can prevent Google from obtaining the cookie-generated data linked to your use of the website (including your IP address), and processing it, by downloading and installing the browser plugin available via this link.
Use of the Webtrends web analytics tool
Bosch uses the Webtrends web analytics tool to carry out access measurements. The access data is collected in anonymized form so that it can no longer be traced back to a user. In particular, this is done by anonymizing the IP address.
Cookies are used for metrics to enable website usage to be analyzed. In particular, Bosch uses them to improve data quality. The information generated about the use of websites is transmitted anonymized to the statistics server (statse.webtrendslive.com) which is operated by Webtrends Inc, 555 SW Oak Street, Suite 300, Portland, OR 97204, United States (“Webtrends”) in the United States of America.
Only authorized persons have access to this anonymized data.
When you register for a newsletter from Bosch Industriekessel GmbH, you are declaring that you are in agreement that the personal details, which you entered in the registration, may be used for the individual dispatch of the selected newsletter.
Since the registration system has an additional confirmation message, which contains a link to the final registration (double opt-in), it is ensured that the newsletter is explicitly requested by you.
These personal details are used exclusively within Bosch Industriekessel GmbH.
You can cancel the newsletter at any time.
The information/services in our customer portal are password-protected. Access to this information is reserved for specialist companies holding Bosch customer numbers.
Bosch takes security measures to protect the data held by us against manipulation, loss, destruction, access by unauthorised persons and against unauthorised disclosure. Our security procedures are continually enhanced as new technology becomes available.
We would also like to use your data to inform you about our products and services and request your opinion, where applicable. You are naturally entitled to decline communications of this kind. Should you not consent to our using your data in this way, you may inform us of this at any time, in order to allow us to block the use of your data accordingly. You can find more information on the relevant local website.
In case of any suggestions or complaints regarding the processing of your personal data, you may contact our Data Protection Officer.
If, despite our efforts to ensure data accuracy, we hold incorrect information, we will gladly correct this at your request.
