    Privacy Policy

    Privacy Policy of the AMS Group
    The protection of your personal data is of particular concern to us. We therefore process your data exclusively on the basis of the legal regulations. This privacy policy informs you about the most important aspects of our data processing.

    1. Why do we store your data?

    We collect personal data for the execution of the contract, for the provision of our services, for the improvement of our offer or for the exchange of information.

    1. Do we pass on your personal data?

    In the context of the business relationship, we pass on personal data to external service providers who act on our behalf:
    IT service providers to maintain our IT infrastructure
    Credit agencies and scoring providers for credit information to assess credit risk
    Forwarding agencies for the dispatch of our goods
    Credit institutions and payment service providers for settlement and handling of payments
    Collection service providers and lawyers to collect claims and enforce claims in court. If personal data is transferred to a collection service provider in the case of collection, we will inform you in advance of the intended transfer.
    Within the framework of compliance with legal requirements, it may be necessary to pass on data to authorities.

    1. Is data transferred to a Third Country?

    Data transfers to countries outside the EU and the European Economic Area ("Third Countries") only arise within the scope of the administration, development and operation of IT systems.

    1. Where do we receive your data from?

    We process personal data that we have received from you in the course of our business relationships.
    As far as it is necessary for the provision of our services, we process personal data that is legitimately transmitted to us by third parties (e.g. suppliers).

    1. What do we use cookies for?

    We partly use cookies on our websites in order to make our offer user-friendly.
    If you do not wish this, you can adjust the settings of your browser so that it informs you about the usage of cookies and you only allow this in individual cases.

    1. What do we use tracking data for?

    Some of our digital offers track the usage behaviour of our website visitors in a pseudonymised way.
    These pseudonymised user profiles are not combined with personal data about the bearer of the pseudonym without the express consent of the data subject to be given separately.
    For this analysis we use Google Analytics, a service of Google Inc, USA ("Google").
    You can prevent Google from collecting data by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at the following link: Google Analytics Opt-Out Browser Add-On

    1. Social plug-ins

    Some of our websites use social plug-ins from various social networks. However, the plug-ins are deactivated by default and therefore do not send any data.
    When you interact with the plug-ins, the relevant information is transmitted directly from your browser to the social network and stored there. The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by social networks as well as your relevant rights and setting options for the protection of your privacy can be found in the data protection information of the respective networks or websites. You will find the links below.
    We use plug-ins of the social network, which is operated by Facebook Inc, USA ("Facebook"). The link to Facebook's privacy policy can be found here: Privacy Policy Facebook
    We use plug-ins of the social network Twitter, which is operated by Twitter Inc, USA ("Twitter"). The link to Twitter's privacy policy can be found here: Privacy Policy Twitter

    1. PayPal

    As one of several payment methods we use the online payment service PayPal, which is operated by PayPal Inc, USA ("PayPal"). The link to PayPal's privacy policy can be found here: Privacy Policy PayPal

    1. Webinars or digital conferences

    Webinars or digital conferences are used for communication between the AMS Group and a group of people who register online for a digital conference for the purpose of contract fulfillment and information gathering. To provide this service, the AMS Group uses the service of Zoom Video Communications, Inc, USA ("Zoom"). The link to Zoom's privacy policy can be found here: Privacy Policy Zoom

    The AMS Group uses technical and organizational security measures to protect your data managed by us against accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction or against access by unauthorized persons.

    1. When do we delete your data?

    Data subject to statutory retention periods are stored and routinely deleted at the end of the statutory period if they are no longer required to fulfil the contract. If data are not affected by this, they will be deleted as soon as the purposes mentioned under point 1 cease to apply.

    1. How can you have your data changed or deleted by us?

    At your request, we will correct, block or delete the data stored about you, provided that this does not conflict with other statutory regulations (e.g. storage obligations).
