    5.1. Categories

    We distinguish between cookies that are mandatorily required for the technical functions of the online service and such cookies and tracking mechanisms that are not mandatorily required for the technical function of the online service.

    It is generally possible to use the online service without any cookies that serve non-technical purposes.

    5.1.1 Technically required cookies

    By technically required cookies we mean cookies without those the technical provision of the online service cannot be ensured. These include e.g. cookies that store data to ensure smooth reproduction of video or audio footage.

    5.1.2. Cookies and tracking mechanisms that are technically not required

    We only use such cookies and tracking mechanisms if you have given us your prior consent in each case. We distinguish between two sub-categories with regard to these cookies and tracking mechanisms:

    5.2. Convenience cookies

    These cookies facilitate operation and thus allow you to browse our online service more comfortably; e.g. your language settings may be included in these cookies.

    5.3. Marketing cookies and tracking mechanisms

    General

    - Statistics:

    By using statistical tools, we measure e.g. the number of your page views.

    - Conversion tracking:

    Our conversion tracking partners place a cookie on your computer ("conversion cookie") if you accessed our website via an advertisement of the respective partner. Normally these cookies are no longer valid after 30 days. If you visit certain pages of our website and the cookie has not yet expired, we and the relevant conversion partner can recognize that a certain user clicked on the advertisement and thereby was redirected to our website. The information obtained by means of the conversion cookie serves the purpose of compiling conversion statistics and recording the total number of users who clicked on the respective advertisement and were redirected to a website with a conversion tracking tag.

    Please note that using the tools might include transfer of your data to recipients outside of the EEA where there is no adequate level of data protection pursuant to the GDPR (e.g. the USA). For more details in this respect please refer to the following description of the individual marketing tools.

    5.3.1. Name: WebTrends

    Provider: WebTrends Inc., 851 SW 6th Ave., Suite 1600, Portland Oregon 97206, USA

    5.4.2. Management of your settings with regard to cookies and tracking mechanisms not required technically

    6. Communication tools on social media platforms

    We use on our social media platform (e.g. twitter) communication tools to process your messages sent via this social media platform and to offer you support.

    When sending a message via our social media platform the message is processed to handle your query (and if necessary additional data, which we receive from the social media provider in connection with this message as your name or files).

    In addition we can analyze these data in an aggregated and anonymized form in order to better understand how our social media platform is used.

    We will forward the personal data you provide to the Bosch legal entity responsible for the processing of your query (for example, in the event your query refers to a product that is distributed by another Bosch legal entity). The legal basis for the processing of your data is our legitimate interest (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR) or, if applicable, an existing contractual relationship (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR). The processed personal data is deleted 180 days upon receipt of your message the latest.

    7. External links

    Our Online Offers may contain links to third party internet pages – by providers who are not related to us. Upon clicking on the link, we have no influence on the collecting, processing and use of personal data possibly transmitted by clicking on the link to the third party (such as the IP address or the URL of the site on which the link is located) as the conduct of third parties is naturally beyond our supervision. We do not assume responsibility for the processing of personal data by third parties.

    Our employees and the companies providing services on our behalf, are obliged to confidentiality and to compliance with the applicable data protection laws.

    We take all necessary technical and organizational measures to ensure an appropriate level of security and to protect your data that are administrated by us especially from the risks of unintended or unlawful destruction, manipulation, loss, change or unauthorized disclosure or unauthorized access. Our security measures are, pursuant to technological progress, constantly being improved.

    Right to correction and deletion:

    You have the right to obtain the rectification or completion of inaccurate personal data or deletion of your data as far as statutory requirements are fulfilled.

    Restriction of processing:

    You have the right to demand for – as far as statutory requirements are fulfilled – restriction of the processing of your data.

    Objection to data processing based on the legal basis of “legitimate interest”:

    In addition, you have the right to object to the processing of your personal data at any time, insofar as this is based on legitimate interest. We will then terminate the processing of your data, unless we demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds according to legal requirements which override your rights.

    Withdrawal of consent:

    In case you consented to the processing of your data, you have the right to revoke this consent at any time with effect for the future. The lawfulness of data processing prior to your withdrawal remains unchanged.
