When does Visiontec Service Unit e. K. use and process personal data?
We know that careful handling of personal data is very important. And since Visiontec thus takes top priority for data protection, we make sure that we comply fully with the regulations laid down in the German Data Protection Act and Teleservices Act when we collect, process and use personal data. You can normally visit our website without leaving any of your personal data. In some cases, however, we do require personal data for:
- participation in competitions
- use of the "My Account" protected area
Your data helps us to customise and continually improve your shopping experience with VISIONTEC. Your personal data will only be used for order fulfilment, delivery of goods, credit checks, processing payment, preventing misuse of our website, and to let you know about orders, products, services and offers.
We ask you to provide your e-mail address so we can contact you more easily and quickly than by post. We will obviously not use your e-mail address for advertising purposes unless you have given us your express consent.
How will your personal data be handled by VISIONTEC?
You can, of course, revoke your permission allowing us to use and process your data for marketing purposes by contacting us at any time. You can do this by sending us a simple e-mail message to firstname.lastname@example.org.
How does VISIONTEC protect your personal data?
Your personal data is transferred to us whenever you log in to "My Account", enter a competition or place an order. To ensure that your personal data does not fall into the wrong hands, VISIONTEC has technical and organisational security measures in place to protect your data from accidental or malicious use, loss, destruction, and to prevent unauthorised access.
These security measures are continually updated and improved in line with technological developments, e.g. link encryption for transferring personal data through the Internet. If you are asked to provide personal data in order to take advantage of a service we offer, your data will be encrypted and transferred through the Internet from your computer to our server, and vice-versa. Encryption is automatic when data is sent and ends once the data has been successfully transferred.
Cookies are pieces of information that the web server places on your computer's browser and which can be identified when you visit the website again. When you use our website, we will only place cookies on your computer's hard disk that are relevant for visiting our website. These cookies are used exclusively for connection control and navigation, and enable you to surf our website easily. They note specific settings, for instance, during a session and save you the trouble of having to re-enter information. Browser versions as of Netscape 3.0 / MS Internet Explorer 3.0 offer you the option of a warning message when a web server wants to place a cookie on your computer. You can either accept or reject cookies.
When you leave www.visiontec.tv or www.visiontec.at, you can delete cookies afterwards from your computer's hard disk, e.g. if automatic removal was not possible due to a disrupted Internet connection. Other technologies whose purpose is to track user behaviour are not used.
How does a credit check help me?
Newly registered customers with VISIONTEC are credit-checked for a negative score. We will also check VISIONTEC customers' previous transactions. All credit checks are carried out in order to rule out payment difficulties.
DThe data exchange between VISIONTEC and the credit insurer therefore protects these companies from damage, and these measures will have an effect on prices in the long run. This is how our customers benefit from credit checks.
