The protection of personal data is of great importance to many internet users and a fundamental basis for a pleasant and satisfying interaction with the internet. aft automotive GmbH pays close attention to the questions and concerns of customers and other visitors to our website regarding data protection and complies with data protection laws in Germany and abroad, as well as the corresponding EU guidelines. As a buyer of our products and services or as a visitor to our website, we assure you that we do not collect any personal data unless it is provided by you.
Please note that our websites may contain links to other websites. aft automotive GmbH assumes no responsibility for compliance with data protection regulations, privacy policies, and content of these other websites. aft automotive GmbH, as a content provider, is only responsible for its own content provided for use in accordance with general laws. References ("links") to content provided by other providers are to be distinguished from these own contents. By means of the reference, aft automotive GmbH provides "external content" for use only. aft automotive GmbH is only responsible for this external content if it has positive knowledge of it (i.e., also of illegal or punishable content) and it is technically possible and reasonable to prevent its use (§5 para. 2 TDG).
However, "links" are always "living" (dynamic) references. When the link was first established, aft automotive GmbH checked the external content to determine whether it could potentially give rise to civil or criminal liability. However, the content provider is not obligated under the TDG (Teleservices Act) to continuously check the content to which it refers in its offer for changes that could justify new liability. Only when it determines or is informed by others that a specific offer to which it has provided a link triggers civil or criminal liability will it remove the reference to this offer to the extent that this is technically possible and reasonable. The technical possibility and reasonableness are not affected by the fact that access to the infringing or illegal offer can still be made from aft automotive GmbH's homepage via other servers even after access has been blocked.
Data We Collect from You
We do not collect personal data from visitors to our website unless the visitor expressly and consciously provides such data. Under no circumstances do we collect personal data that reveal racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, trade union membership, health, or sex life. When you simply visit our website, we do not collect any personal data about you. In two cases, you can expressly and consciously provide certain personal data to us and consent to its collection by us:

In order for us to process your inquiry, we may ask for additional personal data such as your name and telephone number.
If you request one of our products or services, we require certain data from you. Depending on the product or service, different personal data may be collected from you. For certain products and services, it is necessary to provide information such as name, address, telephone number, email address, or similar information. When requesting other products and services, other or additional information may be required. A detailed list of the types of personal data to be provided when ordering different products can be found on the order page for the respective product or service.
Statistical data about your visit
When you visit our website, our computers automatically collect statistical data about your visit. This data does not contain any information about your person; instead, it provides information about your visit to our website. For example, we keep statistics on the number of visitors to our website, the user's IP address, the date and time of the visit, the pages visited, the domains from which visitors access the website, and the browsers they use. These statistical data are not matched with the personal data you have provided to us. Instead, the information is analyzed solely in an anonymous form and deleted at regular intervals. The statistics help us improve the performance of our websites.
How we handle and disclose the collected personal data
The personal data we collect from you is used solely for the purposes described below:
We generally respond to all email inquiries, requests for information about products and services, and other inquiries received via email. We archive this correspondence for the purpose of improving our products, services, and website, as well as for our own business purposes. We often store contact information to send individuals updates or important information about our products and services, including via newsletters.
Support, renewal, and purchase of our products and services
We use the data you provide to inform you about support, renewal, and purchase of our products and services. We may also share the data you provide with affiliated companies, business partners, or representatives of aft automotive GmbH (within and outside the European Economic Area) so that they can contact you regarding support, renewal, or purchase of aft automotive GmbH products and services. Our affiliated companies, business partners, or representatives may contact you directly in this regard.

Provision of products and services included in the scope of performance (in the case of requesting certain services or specific management services)
Additional products or services from third-party companies are included in the scope of certain aft automotive GmbH services. Therefore, when you purchase such a service, we may partially or entirely disclose the data you provided during your request to third parties (within or outside the European Economic Area) so that they can provide the product or service and inform you about this product/service or an upgrade. We assure you that we have agreements with these third-party providers of products and services that exclude the disclosure of data to third parties (in accordance with data protection regulations).
Authentication of your identity
For certain services provided by aft automotive GmbH, it is necessary to compare some of the data in your application/order with third-party databases or other third-party information sources. This is done to verify your identity, as well as other attributes, and to ensure that your identity is not being misused.
Legally required disclosure and protection of licenses
If there is a legal obligation to disclose data to local, state, national, or international government or law enforcement authorities, we will comply with this obligation (for example, we may disclose the identity of purchasers of certain software products to the Bureau of Export Administration of the US Department of Commerce in accordance with our export licenses). We will also disclose data to third parties if required by applicable laws and regulations. Additionally, aft automotive GmbH may disclose information to investigate illegal activities or suspicions of fraud, to prevent such activities, or to take appropriate measures. We may also disclose information to enforce or apply aft automotive GmbH's contracts and license rights.
Occasionally, we ask our customers to provide data as part of a survey. Participation in these surveys is completely voluntary, and customers have the choice of whether to provide this data or not. The survey data is used to monitor and improve the use of this website, as well as to enhance our service and product offerings.
