The websites of ELAFLEX LTD use cookies. Cookies are text files that are placed and stored on a computer system via a web browser.

Many websites and servers use cookies. Many cookies contain a so-called cookie ID. A cookie ID is a unique identifier of the cookie. It consists of a string of characters through which websites and servers can be associated with the specific web browser in which the cookie was stored. This enables the visited websites and servers to distinguish the individual browser of the data subject from any other web browser that contains any other cookies. A specific web browser may be recognised and identified by a unique cookie ID.

By use of cookies, ELAFLEX LTD may provide users of this website with user-friendly services that would be impossible without setting the cookie.

A cookie may optimise the information and offers on our website for the benefit of the user. Cookies enable us, as mentioned before, to recognise the users of our website. The purpose of this recognition is making it easier for users to use our website. For instance, the user of a website that uses cookies does not have to enter his access data again every time when he visits the website because this is taken care of by the website and the cookie stored on the user’s computer system.

The data subject may prevent setting of cookies by our website at any time by making the corresponding setting in the web browser used and thereby permanently object to setting of cookies. Furthermore, cookies already set may be erased at any time via a web browser or other software programs. This is possible in all common web browsers. If the data subject deactivates setting of cookies in the web browser used, not all functions of our website may be fully usable.

Purpose of data recording and possible transfer of data

We will only collect personal data if you provide these on your own, e.g. within the context of registration for our supplier portal or a survey. Data are input in the areas described below:

The contact form offers potential users the option of sending queries directly to ELAFLEX LTD. The website also contains information based on statutory rules (e.g. in the imprint) that permit quick electronic contact with our company (e.g. via the email address).

The information produced by the cookie regarding your use of this website is usually transferred to a server of Google in the USA and stored there. In case you enabled the anonymisation of your IP address on this website, your IP address will be abbreviated by Google, however, within the Member States of the European Union or in other states party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptions will your full IP address be transferred to a server of Google in the USA and abbreviated there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, in order to compile reports on the website activities and to provide further services connected to website use and internet use vis-à-vis the website operator. The IP address submitted by your browser within the context of Google Analytics will not be combined with any other data of Google. You may prevent storage of the cookies by making the corresponding settings in your browser software; however, note that you may be unable to fully use all functions of the website in such a case.

Legal basis of processing

Article (6)(I)(a) GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing operations in our company for which we collect consent for a specific processing purpose. If processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is party, as is the case, e.g., during processing operations that are required for delivery of goods or rendering of any other service or compensation, processing shall be based on Article (6)(I)(b) GDPR. The same shall apply to such processing operations that are required in order to take steps prior to entering into a contract, e.g. in cases of queries concerning our products and services. If our company is subject to any legal obligation through which processing of personal data is required, e.g. for compliance with tax obligations, processing is based on Article 6(I)(c) GDPR.

Period for which the personal data will be stored

The criteria for the period of storage of personal data are the respective statutory archiving periods. After the end of the time limit, the corresponding data will be routinely erased if they are no longer required for performing the contract or preparing the contract.
