Data protection declaration

Last updated: November 2016

We are pleased you chose to visit our website and for your interest in FarmFacts and our products. We respect your privacy and are serious about protecting your data. The data is stored and processed exclusively in accordance with this data protection declaration. We aim to ensure maximum transparency, and our goal is to provide you with optimal control over your data.

Automatically collected data

With each visit to our website, various information is collected and stored without you having to enter it directly. This data represents information which is transmitted from your computer via the internet for technical reasons. The collection of this information is essential as it allows for the data making up our website to be transported via the network to your computer. However, you can partly influence the extent of data transmitted, for e.g. by disabling certain computer services or configuring your system or browser.
The automatically collected data includes, in particular, the enquiring system’s IP address and the date and time of enquiry. In addition, we record which of our pages you visit and which files you request via your browser. This gives an indication of how long you spend on the individual pages. For technical reasons, the so-called “referrer” is also transmitted, which allows us to determine which page you arrived from to our website. Further to this and likewise for technical reasons your system transmits the internet browser you use and the operating system installed.

This automatically collected data is used by us exclusively for statistical purposes and to optimize our services for you. No further permanent storage takes place, nor is this automatically collected data used to create a user profile.

Collection and processing of personal data

Personal data is individual information on the personal or material circumstances of an identified or identifiable natural person. This includes information such as your name, postal address, email address and your telephone number. This data is only collected if voluntarily provided by you, for e.g. during registration or the completion of forms, through the sending of emails, when ordering products or services, or during queries or requests for materials. The personal data which you provide us with via the website (for e.g. your name and email address on the contact form) is only used for corresponding with you and for the purpose for which you provide the data to us.
If you have provided us with your postal address (for e.g. as part of an order), we may use this occasionally to inform you of new products, offers or services and other benefits you may be interested in. You can object to this use of personal data for promotional purposes at any time by contacting Farmfacts GmbH, Rennbahnstr. 7, 84347 Pfarrkirchen, or info@farmfacts.com.

Your personal data is used exclusively by us and will not be disclosed to third parties. The data is stored entirely on computer systems physically located within Germany and protected by suitable measures against external access.

Use of your application data

You can access the BayWa Group applicant portal via a link. If you send us your application via the portal we store your personal data in a secure operating environment to protect it against loss or misuse. Your application data is only made available to authorised persons who are involved in the application process at FarmFacts GmbH and other BayWa Group companies, for e.g. for the purpose of offering you alternative positions, where appropriate. After the application process has drawn to a close (i.e. after we have either accepted or rejected your application), we will store your data for a maximum of 9 months. You may ask for your data to be deleted no earlier than after the expiry of five months following completion of the application process. We are required to store your data for this period of time to ensure we satisfy the legal requirements concerning the proper processing of applications and to enable us to answer any questions relating to your application and/or rejection thereof. If you would like your data to be deleted after this five month period, please email your request to bewerberservice@baywa.de.

Use of cookies

Our website uses “Cookies” to optimise our services. Cookies are small files which are stored on your computer upon the request of our server. The cookies make it easier for you to access our services by storing certain data – this saves you having to reenter it when revisiting our website. If you do not wish to use this functionality, please configure your browser to prohibit the placement of cookies. However, please be aware that in this case some parts of our website or certain functionalities may no longer be accessible to you.

Use of Google Analytics

This website also uses Google Analytics, an internet analysis service provided by Google. Google Analytics uses so-called “Cookies” (small text files) which are stored on your computer to enable the analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie, about how you use this website (including your IP address) is transmitted to a Google server located in the United States where it is also stored. On behalf of the owner of this website, Google uses this information to analyse your use of the website, to compile reports about website activity, and to provide further services related to website and internet related services to the website operator. Google might transfer this information to third parties where mandated by law or where the data is processed by third parties on behalf of Google. As part of the framework of Google Analytics, your IP address will not be merged with other data held by Google. You can prevent the storage of cookies by adjusting your browser settings; however, we must point out that in this case you may not be able to use all functions of this website to their full extent. With the use of this website you agree to the processing of the data collected about you by Google in the manner described above and for the purpose specified above.

We would like to point out that this website uses Google Analytics exclusively by utilising a deactivation add-on 'anonymizeIp()'. This means that the IP address will be anonymised and not saved in full. The identification of the website user is not possible.

By installing the browser add-on to disable Google Analytics (http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout) you can prevent its use. You thereby tell Google Analytics that no information about your website visit is to be transmitted to Google Analytics. We will not use tracking tools without your express approval, to:

  • collect personal data about you,
  • transmit such data to third party providers and marketing platforms, or
  • link the data to your personal data (name, address etc.) without your knowledge.

Our website might contain links to external third party websites whose content is outside of our control. Therefore we cannot accept responsibility for the contents of third party websites. The owner or provider of the linked websites is solely responsible for the contents on their websites.
