Data Protection Advice and General Conditions of Usage
1. Data protection terms for Internet offers
The HiPP Group takes the protection of personal data very seriously. By the term "personal data" one understands name, address, and postal address, as well as phone number and email address amongst other items.
Your data will only be compiled, processed and used according to the terms of the German federal data protection laws (BDSG) and the European data protection terms. In no case will personal data be sold, loaned or delivered without authority to third parties.
In order to protect and preserve the confidentiality of your personal data, authorised employees internal to the HiPP Group have access to your data. For this, all Hipp employees are obliged to comply with all German and European data protection terms insofar as these are applicable. Likewise contracts for assignments that involve data handling are completed with service providers in case they are required to access such data at the HiPP Group's request. With this, the service provider, together with its similarly obligated employees, secure a guarantee for the protection of the confidentiality of the personal data as well as the protection of the personal data itself. Furthermore, the HiPP Group has installed a secure IT environment and is also taking all corresponding measures to ensure the safe handling of its data and the prevention of unauthorised access or misuse.
In order to give you a quick overview we have published the legally required index of procedures on our home page.
In order to always improve our offerings to you, as well as for marketing and optimisation reasons, we capture statistical data about the use of our Internet offers (etracker and Google). For this reason usage data is collected and stored using corresponding statistical technologies. Pseudonymous user profiles are created out of this data and cookies may be deployed. Cookies are small text data files which are stored in intermediate memory of the page visitor's Internet browser. Cookies make it possible to recognise the Internet browser. The compiled data are not used to personally identify the visitor to the website and no association is made with the personal data associated with the pseudonym. Changes to the website in connection with the future development of offers may lead to corresponding changes in the data protection terms, whose most recent status will always be visible online. You should therefore regularly keep yourself informed of changes to the data protection terms. If you have provided us with personal data you can have the data deleted at any time. For this please contact our data protection officer.
