When is personal data collected and processed?
All data is collected and processed for specific purposes. Theses purposes can result from technical needs, contractual requirements or express wishes of users.
For technical reasons, certain data has to be collected and saved when users visit www.db-usedtrain.com (date and duration of the visit, the web pages used, the identification data of the browser and operating system type used, and the web page from which you came to visit us). Insofar as this data provides information about the number of users and use of our website, this is done completely anonymously.
For contractual reasons, we also need personal data in order to perform our services and to be able to fulfil the contractual relationships that we have agreed with you.
This concerns in particular:
The products and services offered by www.db-usedtrain.com company, company address, availability (telephone/e-mail), authorized representative and VAT ID no. as well as the commercial registry (depending on your company's legal form).
Contract initiation and fulfilment
We use the data you send without your specific consent for the purpose of contract initiation and fulfilment as well as for conducting our contractual relationship with you. Upon completion of the contract and payment of the purchase price, your data will be blocked and deleted as soon as the retention periods prescribed by the tax laws and commercial laws have expired, unless you have given your express consent to further use of your data. Moreover, you may delete your account or have it deleted at any time.
Check against sanctions lists
We reserve the right to check your data against the sanctions lists issued by the German Office for Economic Affairs and Export Control (BAFA) as well as to reject your registration or delete your account in the event of corresponding findings.
Your postal contact details (last name, first name, postal address) may be used for sending advertising material by post and for market research purposes. Furthermore, the e-mail address used in a business relationship with you can be used for sending promotional e-mails.
