Personal Data

We do not collect any personal data (such as names, addresses, telephone numbers or email addresses), except when you voluntarily make this data available to us (e.g. via registration or survey) or when you have agreed to your data being recorded, or if applicable laws about the protection of your data allow this.

Intended purpose of data collection, processing and use

In general, the personal data you make available to us will be used to answer your questions, process your jobs, or give you access to certain information or offers. To maintain customer relationships, the following may also be necessary:

- Saving and processing your personal data so that we will better be able to fulfill your requests or improve our products or services

- Use of your personal data by us (or a third party assigned by us) to inform you about offers which are useful for your business activity, or to carry out online surveys to better fulfill the assignments and requirements from our clients.

Of course we will respect your decision if you do not want to give us your personal data to support the customer relationship (especially for direct marketing or for market research). We will not sell your personal data to third parties or otherwise market them. At your request (by letter or email) we will delete your data.

Alpha Verteilertechnik GmbH will only collect, process and use the personal data made available by you and for the purposes stated to you, except if this collection, processing or use falls into one of the following cases:
- If the data collection is for another purpose which is directly linked to the original purpose for which the personal data was collected

- If the data is required for the preparation, negotiation and fulfillment of a contract with you

- If it is required due to a legal obligation or an order from the authorities or courts

- If it is required to justify or protect a legal claim or to defend against accusations

- If it serves to prevent misuse or other illegal activities, e.g. deliberate attacks on the systems of Alpha Verteilertechnik GmbH, or to ensure data security

This data may be able to connect back to personal data. Insofar as the recording, processing and use of your communication or usage data is absolutely necessary, this is subject to the legal regulations about data protection.
