As at: October 2011

Thank you for your interest in our company and your visit to our website. For RECOM Electronic GmbH & Co. KG, data protection is an important customer-oriented quality feature. RECOM is committed to protecting your personal information. We process and use all personal data submitted through the visit to our website in accordance with statutory data protection requirements. Our website may contain links to third party websites that are not under our control. Our data protection policy therefore does not extend to these websites.

Acquisition and storage of data

When you visit our website, our web servers automatically record a number of technical access details such as the IP address of the PC from which a request for data is sent, such as the objects and files that you have viewed or downloaded, and the time and date of access. This data cannot be allocated to a particular individual. We use the technical access data exclusively to make our website more attractive and user-friendly, and to detect any technical problems that might occur in connection with accessing our web pages.

In accordance with the principle of data reduction and data economy, we only collect and save personal data if this is absolutely necessary in order to meet your specific requests and provided that you have freely submitted the data. We use your personal details to process your orders, answer your queries, give you access to special information and offers, and to provide you with special services.

Use and disclosure of personal data and stated purpose

Your personal data shall only be processed for the purposes stated on this data protection information page. We only collect, store and use personal data as necessary if this is required for the protection of the legitimate business interests of RECOM Electronic GmbH & Co. KG, and after careful consideration of the interests of all parties concerned.

We will only disclose personal data submitted to subsidiaries or business partners as required for the handling of your order. We will not disclose your personal data to third parties or sell it on to commercial users. Any such disclosure would require your explicit consent.

Disclosure, correction and deletion of personal data

In accordance with applicable law, you are entitled at any time to contact us in writing to request information on the personal data we have stored in connection with your name. We will then send you the respective information. Please direct your enquiries to our Data Protection Officer (see below). You also have the right to request that your personal data be corrected or permanently deleted.
