Mandatory information is marked with an *.

3.6 Log files

Every time you use the internet, your browser transmits certain information, which we store in so-called log files.

We save log files for a short time solely for error tracking and for security reasons (e.g. to investigate hacking attempts) before deleting them. Log files which need to be kept for evidence purposes are not deleted until the relevant incident has been completely resolved and may, on a case-by-case basis, be passed on to investigating authorities.

In log files, the following information in particular is saved:

  • IP address (internet protocol address) of the terminal device which is being used to access the online services;
  • internet address of the website from which the online services have been accessed (so-called URL of origin or referrer URL);
  • name of the service provider which is used to access the online services;
  • name of the files or information accessed;
  • date and time as well as duration of retrieval;
  • amount of data transferred;
  • operating system and information on the internet browser used including add-ons installed (e.g., Flash Player);
  • http status code (e.g., “request successful” or “requested file not found”).

 

3.7 Data transfer

3.7.1 Data transfer to other controllers

As a matter of principle, your personal data is forwarded to other controllers only when this is required for the fulfillment of a contract, in cases where we or the third party have an overriding, legitimate interest in the data transfer, or when your consent has been given. Information regarding the legal bases can be found in section 3.3 “Purposes of processing and legal bases.” Third parties may also be other companies of the Bosch Group. The transfer of data to third parties on the basis of an overriding, legitimate interest is explained in this data protection policy.

Additionally, data may be transferred to other controllers when we are obliged to do so due to legal provisions or enforceable administrative or court orders.

3.7.2 Data transfer to service providers

We contract external service providers to perform tasks such as marketing services, programming, data hosting, and hotline services. We have chosen these service providers carefully and review them regularly, especially regarding their careful handling and protection of data they have stored. All service providers are obliged to maintain confidentiality and to abide by legal provisions. Service providers may also be other Bosch Group companies.

3.7.3   Transfer to recipients outside the EEA

We can also transfer personal data to recipients located outside the EEA in so-called third countries. In such cases, we ensure prior to the transfer either that the data recipient provides an appropriate level of data protection (e.g. via a decision of adequacy by the European Commission for the respective country or via an agreement based on standard contractual clauses between the EU and the recipient), or that you have consented to the transfer.

You are entitled to receive an overview of third country recipients and a copy of the specific provisions securing an appropriate level of data protection to which you have agreed. To receive this overview, get in touch with us using the details provided in the “Data controller and contact” section (see section 2 above).

3.8   Duration of storage; retention periods

As a general rule, we store your data for as long as necessary for the performance of our online services and the services connected to them, or for as long as we have a legitimate interest in storing the data (for example, we might still have a legitimate interest in postal-mail marketing on fulfillment of a contract). In all other cases, we delete your personal data with the exception of data we must store to fulfill legal obligations (for example, where we are obliged by tax and commercial law to retain documents such as contracts and invoices for a certain period of time).

You have the right to demand that we correct inaccurate personal data relating to you and – provided that legal requirements have been met – amend or delete it.
