  1. PERSONAL DATA

If you use the website purely for information purposes, i.e. if you do not log on to, register, or provide us with any other information to use the website, we do not collect any personal data, apart from data which your browser sends to enable you to visit the website. The purpose of this data collection is to enable you to visit the website and to ensure that the website functions properly. In addition, the data serves us to optimize the website and to ensure the security of our information technology systems. This is:

  • IP address
  • Date and time of the request
  • Time zone difference to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT)
  • Content of the request (specific page)
  • Access status/HTTP status code
  • Data volume transmitted
  • Website from which the request comes
  • Browser
  • Operating system and its interface
  • Language and version of the browser software.

In order to facilitate an informational use of the website by you, we use cookies (see Section 5) on the website, by means of which personal data are processed.

Unless otherwise is stated in this Data Privacy Policy, we will only store your data for as long as is necessary for the purposes for which they were collected or processed, unless longer storage periods are required by law. Your personal data will therefore be deleted after your request has been processed unless otherwise has been agreed or required by law.

In the course of processing personal data we use subcontractors and conclude contracts with these processors in accordance with the requirements of Art. 28 GDPR.

  1. COMMUNICATION BY EMAIL/TELEPHONE/MAIL

Personal data that you provide to us by email, telephone, mail or contact form will of course be treated confidentially. We will use your data exclusively for the purpose of dealing with the enquiry. The lawful basis for the data processing is Article 6 (1f) of the GDPR. The legitimate interest on the part of Almato results from the interest to answer inquiries from our customers, business partners and interested parties and thus to maintain and promote customer satisfaction.

Transfer of your data to third parties outside DATAGROUP is excluded in principle. Data may be processed on our behalf by data processors in exceptional cases. These data processors have been carefully selected, are audited by us and are bound by contract in accordance with Article 28 of the GDPR. Furthermore, it may be necessary for us to forward inquiries to other companies within DATAGROUP, if this is necessary for processing.

All personal data provided by you in the context of enquiries will be deleted or safely anonymised no later than 90 days after the final response on your enquiry has been given. The storage period of 90 days is explained by the fact that it can happen from time to time that you have to contact us again after a reply on the same matter and have to be able to refer to the previous correspondence. Experience has shown that there are usually no further questions to our response after a period of 90 days.

  1. DATA PROCESSING OF CONTACT PERSONS

The companies of DATAGROUP process the contact details of customers, stakeholders, suppliers and other business partners for communication by email, telephone, fax or mail. The lawful basis for the data processing is Article 6 (1f) of the GDPR. The legitimate interest of Almato and DATAGROUP arises from the interest to establish or conduct business relationships with customers, stakeholders, suppliers and other business partners by maintaining personal contact with contact persons.

As a basic principle, we do not disclose personal data to any third parties outside of DATAGROUP. Within DATAGROUP, data is shared, amongst others, to establish or conduct business relationships. Data may be processed on our behalf by data processors in exceptional cases. These processors have been carefully selected, are audited by us and are bound by contract in accordance with Article 28 of the GDPR.

Personal data for the purpose of conducting business relationships is stored as long as there is a legitimate interest.
