  2. We exclusively save any other personal data if you provide us with this data, e.g. as part of registration, a contact form, a survey, prize draw or to conclude a contract and in these cases exclusively to the extent we have been permitted to on the basis of your consent or as per the statutory stipulations (refer to the section entitled "Legal basis of processing" for more information).
  3. You are not legally, nor contractually obliged to surrender your personal data. It may be possible that certain functions of our websites depend on your surrender of personal data. If, in these cases, you do not surrender your personal data to us, it may have the consequence that functions are not available or only available to a limited extent.

 

  1. Purposes of use
  1. We use the personal information collected during your visit to any of our websites to make using them as convenient as possible for you and to protect our IT systems against attacks and other unlawful activities.
  2. If you share additional information with us – for example, by filling out a registration form, contact form, survey, contest entry or to execute a contract – our entities and third parties such as distributors of our products and their affiliated companies (please see the distributors network as defined in 4a) will use that information for the designated purposes, purposes of customer management and – if required – for purposes of processing and billing and business transactions within the required scope in each instance.

  2. If we use so-called social plug-ins by social networks, such as Facebook and Twitter on our websites, we integrate them as follows:
    If you visit our websites, these social plug-ins have been deactivated, i.e. no data is sent to the operators of these networks. If you would like to use one of these networks, click the corresponding social plug-in to establish a direct connection to the server of the corresponding network.
    If you have a user account with the corresponding network and you are logged in to this specific social network at the time you activate the social plug-in, this network can attribute your visit to our websites or to your user account. If you would like to prevent this, please log out from the network prior to activating the social plug-in. A social network is unable to attribute a visit to other Daimler websites before you have not also activated any available social plug-in there.
    When you activate a social plug-in, the network transfers the content that becomes available directly to your browser, which integrates it into our websites. In this situation, data transmissions can also take place that are initiated and controlled by the respective social network. Your connection to a social network, the data transfers taking place between the network and your system, and your interactions on that platform are governed solely by the privacy policies of that network.  The social plug-in remains active until you deactivate it or delete your cookies.
    Cookie Statement
  3. If you click the link to an offer or activate a social plug-in, it may be that personal data is transferred to providers in countries outside the European Economic Area that do not guarantee "adequate levels of protection" that meets EU standards for the processing of personal data from a perspective of the European Union ("EU"). Please consider this before clicking a link or activating a social plug-in and consequently trigger any transfer of your data.
