Liability for content

The content on our pages was created with the utmost care. We cannot, however, guarantee that the content is accurate, complete, or up-to-date. Under § 7 par. 1 TMG (Telemediengesetz; German Telemedia Act), we, as a service provider, are responsible for our own content on these pages in accordance with general legislation. Under §§ 8 through 10 TMG, however, we, as a service provider, are not obligated to monitor transmitted or stored third-party information or to look for circumstances indicating unlawful activity. This provision does not affect our obligations to remove or disable access to information in accordance with general legislation. We can only be held liable in this regard after we learn of a specific legal violation. If we learn of any such violations, we will remove the related content immediately.

Liability for links

Our website contains links to external third-party websites whose content is beyond our control. For that reason, we assume no responsibility for such third-party content. The provider or operator of the linked pages is responsible for the content on the pages in all cases. The linked pages were reviewed for legal violations at the time the links were created. No unlawful content was apparent at the time the links were created. We cannot, however, be reasonably expected to continuously monitor the content of the linked pages without concrete indications of a legal violation. If we learn of any such violations, we will remove the applicable links immediately.

Copyrights, trademark rights

  1. German copyright law governs the content and works created by site operators and presented on these pages. Any reproduction, modification, dissemination, or utilization of any kind outside the bounds of copyright law requires the written consent of the author or creator. Downloads and copies of this website are permitted for private, non-commercial use only.

  2. The brands and trademarks used in this website are the property of the respective rights owners. We do not wish to give the impression that HK Hydraulik is the owner of the trademarks, or is identical to the owners of these rights. The brands and trademarks are only mentioned for the purpose of selling the respective products.

  3. Third-party copyrights are respected wherever the content on this website was not created by the operator. Should any content, or the design of individual pages or parts of this website violate any third-party copyrights or any legal regulations, or give rise to problems in connection with competition law in any other form, then we kindly ask you, referring to § 8 par. 4 UWG, for a reasonable and adequately descriptive quick message without any charges. We guarantee that all passages or parts of this website that are legitimately criticized will be removed or rendered fully compliant with the legal requirements within a reasonable period of time, without any need to involve legal counsel.

  4. Retaining a lawyer to send a cease and desist notice at the expense of the service provider would not reflect their real or assumed objectives und would therefore violate § 13 para. 5 UWG, since the pursuit of irrelevant objectives would be the main motive behind such legal action, especially with the objective of obtaining legal fees as the main motivation. In addition, it would also violate the basic duty to minimize damages. Regarding the content in the provided customer and partner accounts, we claim the liability privileges granted to service providers by § 5 No. 3 TDG and § 11 TDG.

Privacy policy

The entire range of service provisions offered by HK Hydraulik Handelsges. mbH (hereinafter referred to as we/us) is aimed at commercial customers. At the same time, we take data protection very seriously. We will only store data that you have voluntarily transmitted to us.

Purpose and scope of data processing

We strive for the greatest possible security in the handling of your data. Any processing of your data is carried out in accordance with the statutory provisions, in particular the EU General Data Protection Regulation (EU-GDPR) and the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG). We process (in particular collect and store) only such personal data as is necessary for the performance and handling of the service. These are usually only surname, first name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, type and value of the order or commissioned service.

Disclosure to third parties

We will not pass on your data to third parties unless you have given us your express permission to do so, we are legally obliged to do so or this is necessary for the execution of the contract. This includes in particular:

• disclosure to the accounting service and/or tax consultant for the fulfilment of our tax obligations;

• disclosure to transport companies for the proper transport of ordered or processed goods;

• if necessary, disclosure to corresponding service providers or debt insurers for the purpose of credit assessment;

• in case of unpaid receivables after reminder to debt collection service providers and/or lawyers.

We would like to point out that if you contact us, employees who are responsible for the processing of the respective process will have access to your personal data.

In addition, we employ external IT service companies for the maintenance of our IT systems, which may have access to your personal data as part of their activities.

Third-party countries

Data transfers to third-party countries take place, but only to the extent necessary for the execution of the contract and in compliance with the legally regulated conditions of admissibility. For data storage we partly use the program Microsoft Office 365 Cloud. The operator is the Microsoft Corporation, One Microsoft Way, Redmond, WA 98052-6399, USA. The Microsoft Corporation is committed to compliance with the EU-US Privacy Shield and EU standard contract clauses. In this respect, we are linked to the Microsoft Corporation by a corresponding contract for order data processing, which we will gladly send you a copy of upon request. This gives us suitable guarantees in accordance with Art. 46 EU-GDPR and an appropriate level of data protection.

Duration of data storage and deletion

We retain the data stored for the execution and processing of the service provision in accordance with the statutory retention periods. A longer storage period will only take place if this is necessary for the service provision. If the contractual relationship is terminated, the data record is marked as inactive and is no longer used. After expiry of the aforementioned retention period, the data will be irreversibly deleted or blocked.
