2. Information about this website

With this data protection notice, we provide you with information as to how we handle personal data and which personal data we collect, process and use when you visit this website. 

“Personal data” shall mean all information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. A natural person is considered to be identifiable if they can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, identification number, location data, online identifier, or to one or more particular characteristics that are an expression of the physical, physiological, genetic, psychological, economic, cultural or social identity of this natural person.

The purpose of this and other websites is to provide you with information about selected companies of the MAN Group.

The following information does not apply to companies that MAN does not own or control, and does not apply to people that MAN does not employ or instruct.

3. Collection of general information and anonymous usage data

When you visit our website, information of a general nature is automatically collected. This information contains the type of web browser used, the operating system used, the domain name of your internet service provider, our website that you are visiting, as well as technical information on your visit (https/http method, https/http version, https/http status code, length of the data transferred). This only concerns information, which does not permit conclusions about your person. This data is also generated during access to every other website on the internet. This is therefore not a specific function of this website. 

Information of this type is only collected in an anonymised form and evaluated by us statistically. The better we understand your requirements, the faster you can find your desired information on our websites.

4. Collection and processing of personal data

a) Simple navigation on the website

When you visit our website, our web servers save your IP address used for access, as well as the date and time of the visit as standard.

b) Use of web applications

When using our web applications, (e.g. truck configurator), information may also be saved that is required to use this application effectively (language, session ID, configurator step, selected data within the configurator).

c) Registration using online forms

Other personal data is only collected when you provide it to us voluntarily, and as far as this is required for the respective purpose, for example, as part of a registration, a subscription, a questionnaire or a competition.

d) Use of cookies

We use various cookies on our websites. Cookies are small files containing configuration information that is stored on your terminal device. Cookies can basically be divided into three categories. There are cookies which are essential for the functionality of the website (so-called Strictly necessary cookies), cookies which increase the comfort of a website visit and, for example, save your language settings (so-called performance cookies) and cookies which are used to create a pseudonymised user profile (so-called Targeting cookies). 

The processing of functional cookies is necessary to enable you to visit the website (cf. Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DS-GVO).

Comfort and tracking cookies are only set if the website visitor has given his/her consent (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a DS-GVO). Consent is given via the so-called cookie banner, which must be actively clicked on.

You can revoke your consent to the data processing shown by using the listed cookies and tracking tools at any time with effect for the future by clicking on the following link and changing your currently defined preferences in our Cookie Consent Manager:

e) Google Analytics

This website uses the web analysis service Google Analytics to evaluate user access to this website. Data processing is based on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO).

f) Integration of Social Media Plug-Ins (Facebook, Twitter)

We do not include social plug-ins on our website. However, we may link to our social media pages in individual articles. If you click on such a link, you will be redirected to the respective social media presence.

5. Limitation on use of personal data

Your personal data will only be used for the purpose for which you have provided this data to us. 

6. Legal basis for processing

The legal basis for the use and saving of your personal data is your consent in accordance with Art. 7 EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) as well as in accordance with Section 13, Para. 2 Telemediengesetz (TMG, German Telemedia Act). We process your basic data and usage data on the basis of and in accordance with the provisions of Sections 14 and 15 TMG, which represent a legal duty in the sense of Article 6, Para. 1(c) EU GDPR, which we, as operator of the website, are subject to.

7. Transfer of personal data

Due to the use of the presented functions, bodies which are located in third countries outside the European Economic Area (EEA) can also view your data. In these countries, the level of data protection may be insufficient as there is no decision regarding the adequacy of the data protection from the EU Commission and no other suitable guarantees for the protection of your personal data. 

Your data is transferred into these third countries on the basis of your consent in accordance with Art. 7 EU GDPR and Section 13, Para. 2 TMG (German Telemedia Act) or on the basis of the exemption clauses of Art. 49, Para. 1 EU GDPR which apply through the activation of the applicable function.

Your data can also be seen by associated companies from the MAN and VW Group, as well as external service providers who provide and technically operate this website and the systems linked to it. Data protection contracts have been concluded with these companies in order to ensure a high level of data protection. 

Data shall only be sent to government bodies and authorities in accordance with binding national legal regulations. 

8. Data storage and deletion

Personal data linked to your visit to our website (see Points 1 and 2 ) is saved for two years, calculated from the point in time when our website was opened.

Other personal data is saved until you unregister or inform us that you would no longer like to make use of the respective function. 

Beyond this, personal data is only saved if there are statutory or contractual retention obligations.

9. Your rights 

You have the right to be informed about the data that relates to you, and the right to correct your data. Provided that there are no statutory regulations to the contrary, you also have the right to delete and block your data, as well as the right to object to the processing of your data. Furthermore, you have the right to data portability. 

As we collect and process your personal data on the basis of your consent, you also have the right to revoke the consent you granted. The legality of the data processing carried out with your consent until you revoke it, remains unaffected by your withdrawal of consent.

If necessary, we need to verify your identity before we can process your requests. 

If, in spite of our efforts to maintain accurate and up-to-date data, incorrect information has been saved, we will correct such information upon corresponding request.

In the event of complaints, there is the possibility to contact a data protection supervisory authority.

10. Security

MAN protects your data by means of technical and organisational security measures against accidental or premeditated manipulation, loss, destruction or access by unauthorised persons. Our security measures, such as data encryption, are regularly improved in accordance with technological development.

11. Links to the websites of other providers 

Our website may contain links to the websites of other providers. MAN checked the directly linked websites at the time of link creation and convinced itself that they were free of legal violations. However, MAN has no influence of any kind on the content of linked websites and is not able to monitor these on an ongoing basis. Therefore MAN assumes no liability for the content of linked websites that have been modified after the link creation. This data protection agreement does not apply to the linked websites of other providers.

12. Reservation

In order to keep apace with the continuous development of the internet, MAN may adapt this declaration concerning data privacy protection at any time while adhering to the provisions of data privacy protection legislation.
