OF HOBBY-WOHNWAGENWERK ING. HARALD STRIEWSKI GMBH, HOBBY-CARAVAN.DE

Thank you for your interest in our website. Protecting your privacy is very important to us. We have provided detailed information below regarding how your data is used.

Collection, processing and use of your data

In principle, you can use our website without disclosing your identity. If you order goods, send us enquiries, open a user account or subscribe to our newsletter, we ask you for your name, contact details and other information that we need from you.

We use the information provided by you to fulfil contracts, to send out brochures, to respond to enquiries, to process orders and to comply with legal requirements.

No further personal data shall be recorded unless you give us your consent, e.g. when ordering from the catalogue.

A) Catalogue mailings only: the data necessary for the order procedure will be stored, processed, analysed and forwarded to the catalogue service provider. After successful delivery, your data will be deleted unless you have consented to further use.

B) Dealers and further information: in addition to A), you agree to being contacted in person by one of our authorised dealers in your vicinity. For this purpose, your data will be stored and forwarded to authorised dealers near you. You also consent to receiving further information by post or newsletters regarding new products, events, competitions, trade fairs and other topics. For this purpose, your data will be stored, processed, analysed and forwarded until further notice to allow delivery of the service in question.

If you have signed up for our newsletter, we will also use your e-mail address to send the newsletter. You may withdraw this consent at any time with effect for the future by unsubscribing from the newsletter.

We entrust other companies with the performance of certain tasks for us, such as sending the newsletter, processing orders and organising customer meetings or Family Week, as well as GiroSolution AG in Frickingen and 17111 Transit Fulfilment & Logistik in Osterrönfeld. These service providers have access to the personal information they require to perform their tasks. However, the service providers may not use this information for any other purpose, and they are obliged to treat the information in accordance with this data protection policy as well as the relevant data protection legislation.

We disclose information about our customers if we are legally obliged to do so, or if such a disclosure is required in order to enforce contractual agreements, or to protect our rights, the rights of our customers or third parties.

We use commercially available technologies such as cookies or tracking pixels (invisible graphics) on our website.

Web Analytics

Etracker (https://www.etracker.com/de/datenschutz.html):

Data is collected and saved for marketing and optimisation purposes on this website using technology created by etracker GmbH (www.etracker.com). User profiles are created from this data under a pseudonym. Cookies may be used for this purpose. Cookies are small text files that are saved locally in the cache of the site visitor's web browser. The cookies enable the web browser to be recognised on future visits. Data collected using etracker technology will not be used to identify the visitor to the website personally without their prior consent and will not be merged with personal data relating to the person to whom the pseudonym refers.

Use of social media plugins

1. Facebook, Twitter, Google+

We currently use the following social media plugins: Facebook, Twitter and Google+. We use what is known as the 2-click solution. This means that when you visit our site, no personal data is ever passed on to the providers of these plugins in the first instance. You can identify the provider of the plugin by the label on the greyed out box. Personally identifiable information is only transferred if you click on one of the plugins: by activating the plugin, information is automatically transferred to the relevant plugin provider and saved there (in the case of US providers, possibly in the USA). We do not have any influence over the data that is collected or the procedures for processing the data, nor do we know the full extent of the data collection, the exact location where it is saved, the purposes for which it will be used or the retention periods. As the plugin provider collects data using cookies in particular, we recommend that you delete all cookies via your browser's security settings before clicking on the greyed out box.

You can obtain more information about the purpose and extent of data collection and its processing by the plugin provider in the data protection policies detailed below. There you will also obtain more information about your rights in this respect and the settings you can change to protect your privacy.
