2. Intended use of data processing

3. Processing of personal data

Visiting our website

We record and save your computer's IP address in order to send the contents of our website visited by you to your computer (e.g. texts, pictures, and files provided for downloading, etc.) (cf. Art. 6 (1) lit. b GDPR). We also process these data to identify and pursue any misuse. Legal basis in this case is Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR. In this context, our legitimate interest in data processing is to ensure the due functioning of our website and the business transacted via the website.

In as far as we process your data as described above for the purpose of providing the functions of our website, you are contractually bound to make these data available to us.

Other purposes

We also process personal data that you provide voluntarily, e.g. when you make an inquiry or online appointment, or when you order information material or newsletters. Legal basis in this case is Art. 6 (1) lit. b GDPR. The data processed by us in this context include the data of customers, employees, and suppliers to the extent necessary for the purposes specified within the scope of this data privacy statement.

Sometimes we use external service providers to process your data. In these cases, the information is transferred to third parties to enable further processing. External service providers are selected carefully and audited at regular intervals to ensure protection of your data privacy.

These service providers / processors are bound by instructions. Given this, they are subject to our requirements, which include processing of your data exclusively in line with our instructions and in compliance with the applicable Data Protection Act. In particular, they are contractually bound to treat your data with strict confidentiality, and are not permitted to process data for other purposes than the ones agreed.

Data transfer to the data processor is effected on the basis of Art. 28 (1) GDPR.

We will not sell your data to third parties or otherwise share them for commercial purposes.

Beyond the above, we will transfer your personal data to prosecution authorities and, if applicable, damaged third parties without your explicit consent where this is necessary for clarifying illegal use of our services or for legal prosecution. However, such a transfer will only take place if there is concrete evidence of illegal conduct or misuse. Transfer of your data may also take place where this contributes to enforcing the conditions of use or other agreements. We are also under legal obligation to provide information to certain public bodies on request. These comprise prosecution authorities, authorities prosecuting offences punishable by a fine, and financial authorities.

The transfer of these data is based on our legitimate interest in fighting misuse, prosecuting criminal acts, and securing, asserting, and enforcing claims unless our interests are overridden by your rights and interests in the protection of your personal data, Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR.

5. Intended data transfer to third countries

At present, data transfer to third countries is not planned. Otherwise we will establish the required legal conditions. In particular, you will be informed of the respective recipients or categories of recipients of the personal data in line with the legal requirements.

7. Website-Tracking

Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics for web analysis. This is a service provided by Google Ireland Limited ("Google"), a company incorporated and operated under the laws of Ireland (registration number: 368047) with its registered office at Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland ("Google"). Google Analytics uses "cookies". The information generated by the cookie about your use of our website (including your IP address) will be transmitted and stored by Google. It is not excluded that data processing may take place outside the scope of EU law. Google has joined the Privacy Shield so that Google guarantees compliance with EU data protection standards.

However, if you activate the IP anonymization on this website, your IP address will be shortened previously by Google within Member States of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases the full IP address is transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide the website operator with further services related to website and internet use. The IP address transmitted by your browser within the scope of Google Analytics will not be aggregated with other Google data. You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser, however please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. You can also prevent Google from collecting the data generated by the cookie and relating to your use of the website (including your IP address) and from processing this data by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en. You can prevent Google Analytics from collecting data by clicking on the following link. An opt-out cookie is set that prevents future collection of your data when you visit this website: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout/eula.html?hl=en

For more information on terms of use and privacy, please visit http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/en.html or https://www.google.com/intl/en/privacy.html. Please note that on the website Google Analytics has been extended by the code "anonymizeIP" in order to guarantee an anonymous registration of IP addresses (so-called IP masking).

The legal basis for processing is Art. 6 (1) f GDPR, whereby our authorization arises from the fact that, on the one hand, Falken Tyre, Offenbach, Germany, has an interest in evaluating the website data for purposes of website optimization and, on the other hand, a concerned person can reasonably foresee at the time when the personal data is collected and in view of the circumstances under which it is carried out (in particular the above-mentioned measures) that it will possibly be processed for this purpose.

Google Tag Manager

This website uses the Google Tag Manager. Google Tag Manager is a solution that allows Falken Tyre to manage website tags through a single interface. The Tag Manager tool itself (which implements the tags) is a cookie-less domain and does not collect any personally identifiable information. The tool triggers other tags that may themselves collect data. Google Tag Manager does not access this data. If deactivation has been made at the domain or cookie level, it will persist for all tracking tags implemented with Google Tag Manager.

8. Cookies

For a user-friendly website experience and to tailor the operations of our website to your needs, some areas of our website may use cookies. A cookie is a small file that is stored locally on your computer when you visit a website. When you revisit the website on the same device, the cookie will indicate, for example, that you are a repeat visitor. Cookies also allow us to analyze the use of our website. They do not include any personal data and cannot identify you on third-party websites––including those of analytics providers.

We use the following types of cookies:


• Essential/necessary cookies
These cookies are essential for the functioning of our website. This includes, for example, issue of anonymous session IDs to summarize multiple queries to a web server, or ensuring fault-free functioning of registrations and orders.

• Functionality cookies
These cookies help us to save your chosen settings or support other functions when you are navigating our website. They allow us, for example, to remember your preferred settings for your next visit or save your login data for certain areas of our Website.

• Performance/statistics cookies
These cookies collect information about how you use our website (e.g. which Internet browser you use, how often you visit our website, which pages you open, or how long you stay on our website). These cookies do not store any information that enables visitors to be personally identified. The information collected with the help of these cookies is aggregated, and thus anonymous.

You can accept or decline cookies - including those used for website tracking - by selecting the appropriate settings for your browser. You can set your browser to notify you when you receive a new cookie, or to decline cookies altogether. However, if you choose to decline cookies you may not be able to use all the features of our website (e.g. for purchasing orders).

9. Embedding of social plugins

Our website uses buttons for the following social Networks

• facebook, Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA
• Google, Google Ireland Limited Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Irland
• Twitter, Twitter Inc., 1355 Market St, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA
• Xing, XING AG, Gänsemarkt 43, 20354 Hamburg, Deutschland
• YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno CA 94066, USA
• LinkedIn, LinkedIn Corporation, 2029 Stierlin Court, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA

The buttons show the logos of the individual social networks. However, the buttons are not standard social plugins, i.e. plugins provided by social networks, but links with button icons. These buttons are only activated by deliberate actions (clicking). As long as you do not click the buttons, no data will be transferred to the social networks. By clicking the buttons, you accept communication with the servers of the social network, thereby activating the buttons and establishing the link.

Once clicked, the button functions as a share plugin. The social network then obtains information about the site you have visited, which you can share with your friends and contacts. You need to be logged in to “share” information. If you are not logged in, you will be forwarded to the login page of the social network you have clicked, thereby leaving the pages of https://www.falkentyre.com/en. If you are logged in, your “like” or recommendation of the article in question will be transmitted.

When you activate the button, the social networks will also receive the information that you accessed the respective page of our website and when you did so. In addition, information such as your IP address, details about the browser you used, and your language settings may be transmitted. If you click the button, your click will be transferred to the social network and used according to their data policy.

When you click the button we have no control over the data collected and the data-processing operations. We are not responsible for this data processing, nor are we the “controller” as defined in the GDPR. Neither are we aware of the full extent of data collection, its legal basis, purposes and storage periods. Given this, the information provided here is not necessarily complete.

The data will be transmitted irrespective of whether you actually have an account with this provider or whether you are logged in there. If you are logged in with the provider, your data will be assigned directly to your account. Providers may also use cookies on your computers to track you.

As far as we know, these providers store these data in user profiles which they use for advertising, market research and/or demand-oriented website design. This type of analysis is performed (also for users who are not logged in) to present demand-oriented advertising and inform other users of the social network of your activities on our website. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles. To exercise your right of objection, please contact the relevant provider.

Please consult the information provided by the following social media sites for details of the purpose and scope of data collection and of further processing and use of the data by the respective social network, and for your rights and privacy settings:

• Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/about/privacy
• Google: http://www.google.com/intl/de/policies/privacy
• Twitter: http://twitter.com/privacy
• Xing: https://www.xing.com/privacy
• youtube: http://www.youtube.com/t/privacy_at_youtube
• LinkedIN: http://www.linkedin.com/static?key=privacy_policy&trk=hb_ft_priv


If you do not wish social networks to obtain data about you, do not click the button.

10. Online presences in social media

Falken Tyre maintains several online presences within social networks and platforms, such as Facebook, Twitter, youtube, Xing and LinkedIn, in order to be able to communicate with active users there and to inform them about our service portfolio. Falken Tyre uses the technical platforms and services offered by the operators. In social networks and on other external platforms the data protection regulations of the operators apply, even though we publish information and maintain presences there.

We would like to point out that you use the services of the social networks and platforms offered here as well as their functions under your own responsibility.

This applies in particular to the use of interactive functions (e.g. commenting, sharing, rating etc.). The data collected about you in this context will be processed by the platform operators and, if necessary, transferred to countries outside the European Union. Which information the operators receive and how these are used, describe the respective data protection guidelines in general form. On the individual platforms you will also find information on how to contact the operators and on the setting for advertisements.

• Facebook: www.facebook.com/about/privacy
• Google: www.google.com/intl/de/policies/privacy
• Twitter: twitter.com/privacy
• Xing: www.xing.com/privacy
• youtube: www.youtube.com/t/privacy_at_youtube
• LinkedIn: www.linkedin.com/static

In which way the social network operators use the data from the visits of the respective pages for own purposes, to what extent activities on the pages are assigned to individual users, how long these data are stored and whether data from a visit of the respective page are passed on to third parties, is not conclusively and clearly named by the operators and is not known to us.

11. Use of Google maps

This website uses Google Maps, a map service of Google Ireland Limited ("Google"), to display an interactive map. Google Ireland Limited ("Google"), is a company incorporated and operated under the laws of Ireland (registration number: 368047) with its registered office at Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland ("Google").

Through the use of Google Maps, information about your use of this website (including your IP address) may be transferred to a Google server in the United States of America and stored there. Google will transfer the information obtained through Google Maps to third parties if this is required by law or if third parties process these data on behalf of Google.

Google will in no case associate your IP address with other data from Google. Nevertheless, it would be technically possible that Google could make an identification of the least single users on the basis of the data obtained. It would be possible for personal data and personality profiles to be processed by users of Google’s website for other purposes to which we have no influence. This and the fact that data are transmitted to the US is problematic for reasons of data protection law. You can easily disable the Google Maps service, preventing data transfer to Google: For this, disable JavaScript in your browser. Please note that in this case, you can no longer use the map display.

By using this website and not disabling java, you agree with the collection, processing and use of the automatically collected data and the data entered by you (including your IP address) by Google, one of its representatives or third-party providers.

The terms of use for Google Maps can be found at the following link: https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/terms/regional.html

In-depth information about transparency and choices, as well as the data protection policy, can be found at the Google Privacy Center: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en

12. Online Application

On our careers site, you have the chance to apply online for advertised positions or to submit a prospective application. If you make use of this option, a new window opens with an application form. This form is provided by the online application service umantis, Haufe Service Center GmbH, Munzinger Straße 9 79111 Freiburg. An order processor agreement is concluded with umantis. Once the online application process has been completed, Umantis transfers your data to Falken Tyre, where it is stored for further use.

We store your application data for the duration of the review of your application. If your application is not successful or if you withdraw your application, your application data is deleted after a maximum of 6 months, unless you have expressly agreed to longer storage. If your application is successful, the data provided to us by you via the application system is processed further with a view to your future employment by our company. The legal basis is Art. 6 (1) a, b and f GDPR as well as Section 26 BDSG.

If you do not provide us with the necessary personal details, this has no negative consequences for you. However, incomplete or incorrectly filled in applications are not considered. If your personal details are not provided, the application unfortunately cannot be submitted and is therefore deleted.

13. Competitions and petrol station offers

For participation and in order to provide you with corresponding customer advantages, it is necessary that your personal data transmitted as part of participation be processed.

We use your personal data only for orderly participation in our competitions and petrol station offers (see terms and conditions of participation). Here, consent is obtained pursuant to Art. 6 (1) point (a) GDPR. The requirements for the consent pursuant to Art. 7 (1-4) GDPR are correspondingly fulfilled.

The personal data related to our competitions and petrol station offers collected in the participation form are used exclusively for the implementation of the campaign and are deleted immediately once the winners have been chosen and upon successful handover of the winnings or the petrol station voucher. In particular, the data is not used for later advertising purposes, unless a separate consent was issued for the sending of the newsletter. No automated decision-making or profiling takes place. If you have consented to the processing of personal data (cf. Art. 6 (1) point (a) GDPR), you can withdraw your consent at any time, without the legality of the processing that has taken place up to the withdrawal due to the consent being affected.

14. Standard periods for deletion of data

Legislation has defined numerous data storage periods and obligations. At the end of these periods, the relevant data will be routinely deleted. Data that are not affected by the above storage periods and obligations are deleted or anonymized as soon as the purposes defined in this data privacy statement no longer apply. Unless this data privacy statement includes other deviating provisions for data storage, we will store any data we collect for as long as they are required for the above purposes for which they were collected.

15. Other data use and deletion

Any further processing or use of your personal data will generally only be carried out to the extent permitted on the basis of a legal regulation or where you have consented to data processing or data use. In the case of further processing for other purposes than the ones for which the data were originally collected, we will inform you about these other services and provide you with all other significant information before further processing.

16. Misuse detection and prosecution

Information for the detection and prosecution of misuse, in particular your IP address, will be kept available for a maximum of 7 days. The legal basis in this respect is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. Our legitimate interest in the retention of data for 7 days is to ensure the proper functioning of our website and the transactions conducted over it, and to be able to ward off cyber attacks and the like. We may use anonymous usage information to design our website to meet your needs.

Right to restriction of processing
If the criteria defined in Art. 18 GDPR are fulfilled, you have the right to restriction of processing as established in the above article of the GDPR. According to this article, restriction of processing may be called for in particular if processing is unlawful and the data subject opposes deletion of the personal data and requests the restriction of their use instead, or if the data subject has objected to processing according to Art. 21 (1) GDPR as long as it is unclear whether our legitimate interest overrides the interest of the data subject. To assert your above right, please contact the contact address given below.

Right to data portability
You have the right to data portability as defined in Art. 20 GDPR. This means you have the right to receive the personal data concerning you, which you have provided to us, in a structured, commonly used, and machine-readable format, and have the right to transmit those data to another controller, such as another service provider. Prerequisite is that processing is based on consent or a contract, and is carried out using automated means. To assert your above right, please contact the contact address given below

You have the right to object at any time under Art. 21 GDPR to processing of personal data concerning you which is based on Art 6 (1) lit. e or f GDPR, on grounds relating to your particular situation.
