1. Data protection

We enjoy your visit to our web pages and your interest in our offers. Your personal data protection is an important issue for us. In this Privacy Statement, we explain the manner in which we collect your personal data, what we do with them, for what purpose and on what legal grounds, as well as what your rights and claims are. Moreover, we refer to the Daimler Procedural Regulation on data protection:
• Daimler procedural regulation on data protection 

Our privacy statement regarding the use of our web pages and the Daimler AG procedural regulation on data protection do not apply to operations on the web pages of social networks, or of the other providers that you may visit through links from our web pages. Please, get informed on the web pages of such providers as regards their provisions regarding data protection.

2. Collection and processing of your personal data

a. During your visit on our web pages, we store certain data about the browser and the operation system you use, the visit date and time, the visit status (for example, whether you were able to visit a webpage, or you received an error message), the use of functions of web pages, the search words you possibly entered, the frequency of your visits to certain web pages, the name of visited files, the amount of data transferred, the web page from which you accessed our web page and the web page that you visit from our web pages, whether you click the links on our web pages or whether you enter directly an object in the field on the same sheet (respectively, the same window) in your browser, from which you opened our web pages. Moreover, for safety reasons, especially for preventing and recognizing attacks against our web pages or other fraudulent attempts, we store for 7 days your IP address and the name of you internet service provider.

b. We collect other personal data only if you communicate us such data, for example, within some recording, form containing contact data, some questionnaire, some competition or for signing a contract and, even in such cases, only to the extent such collection is allowed according to your agreement or according to the relevant regulations (further information in this respect is provided below, in the chapter „Legal Grounds for the Processing“).

c. You are not obliged, either by law or under the contract, to provide your personal data. It is, however, possible that certain functions of our web pages depend on providing personal data. If, in such cases, you do not provide personal data, it is possible that certain functions will be available only to a limited extent, or not be available at all.

3. Purposes of use

a. We use the personal data collected during a visit to our web pages in order to operate them as conveniently for you as possible and in order to protect our IT systems against attacks and other illegal activities.

b. Insofar as you communicate us also other personal data, for example, within some recording, some form containing contact data, some questionnaire, some competition or for signing a contract, we will use such data for the purposes mentioned, for the purpose of managing the customers and – if required – for the purpose of performing and accounting for some transactions, to the extent necessary in this respect.

4. Transfer of personal data to third parties

a. Our web pages may contain also offers coming from third parties. If you click such an offer, we will transfer data to the relevant provider, to the extent required (for example, the indication that you found such offer with us and, if applicable, other information you have already provided in this respect on our web pages).

b. When we use on our web pages the so-called „social plugins” from the social networks, such as Facebook, Twitter and Google+, we embed them as follows:
When you visit our web pages, the social plugins are disabled, that is, no data transfer takes place to the operator of such networks. If you wish to use one of these networks, click the relevant social plugin, in order to establish a direct connection to the server of the relevant network.
 If you have a user account in that network and you are authenticated at the time the social plugin is enabled, the said network may correlate your user account to your visit to our web pages. If you wish to avoid this, please log off from the network before enabling the social plugin. The visit to other Daimler web pages cannot be correlated by a social network, if you have not enabled first a social plugin that exists also there.
 When you enable a social plugin, the contents that become thus available are transferred by the network directly to your browser, which embeds them in our web pages. In such case, data transfers may also take place, which are initiated and controlled by the relevant social network. For your login in a social network, the data transfers that take place between the network and your system, and for your interactions on such platform are valid exclusively the provisions of the relevant network regarding data protection.
 The social plugin remains enabled until you disable it, or delete your cookies.
•Indications regarding cookies 

c. When you click the link to an offer, or you enable a social plugin, it is possible that some personal data reach providers from countries that are outside the European Economic Area, which, from the European Union („EU”) standpoint, do not guarantee an „adequate protection level”, according to the EU standards on the processing of personal data. Please take into account this fact, before clicking a link, or enabling a social plugin, triggering thus the transfer of your data.
