is an important concern for us. In these Privacy Statement

and which rights and claims are associated with it for you.
Our Privacy Statement for the use of our websites do not apply
to your activities on the websites of social networks or other
providers that you can reach via the links on our websites.
Please check the websites of these providers for their data
2. Collection and processing of your personal
a. When you visit our website, we store certain information
about the browser and operating system you use, the date and
time of your visit, the access status (e.g. whether you were
able to access a website or received an error message), the
use of website func-tions, the search terms you may have entered,
the frequency with which you access individual websites, the
designation of files ac-cessed, the amount of data transferred,
the website from which you accessed our websites and the website
which you visit from
our websites, either by clicking on links on our websites
or by entering a do-main directly in the input field of the
same tab (or the same window) of your browser in which you
opened our websites. We also store your IP address and the
name of your Internet service provider for seven days for
security reasons, in particular to prevent and detect attacks
on our websites or attempts at fraud.
b. We only store other personal data if you
provide this data, e.g. as part of a registration, a contact
form, a survey, a price competition or for the execution of
a contract, and even in these cases only insofar as this is
permitted to us on the basis of a consent given by you or
in accordance with the applicable legal provisions (further
information on this can be found below in the section "Legal
basis of processing").
c. You are not legally or contractually obliged
to make available your personal data. However, it is possible
that certain functions of our websites depend on the availability
of personal data. If you do not make available personal data
in these cases, this may result in functions not being available
or only being available to a limited extent.
3. Purposes of use
a. We use the personal data collected when you visit our website
in order to operate it in the most convenient manner for your
use and to pro-tect our IT systems from attacks and other
b. If you provide us with further personal data, e.g. within
the scope of a registration, a contact form, a survey, a price
competition or for the execution of a contract, we use this
data for the purposes mentioned, for the purposes of customer
administration and - if necessary - for the purposes of processing
and accounting of any business transac-tions, in each case
to the extent required for this.
4. Transfer of personal data to third parties;
a. Our websites may also contain offers of third parties.
If you click on such an offer, we transfer data to the respective
provider to the re-quired extent (e.g. information that you
have found this offer with us and, if applicable, further
information that you have already provided on our websites
for this purpose).
b. When we use social plug-ins on our websites
from social networks such as Facebook, Twitter and Google+,
we integrate them as follows:
When you visit our websites, the social plug-ins
are deactivated, i.e. no data is transmitted to the operators
of these networks. If you want to use one of the networks,
click on the respective social plug-in to establish a direct
connection to the server of the respective network.
If you have a user account on the network and are logged in
when you activate the social plug-in, the network can associate
your visit to our websites with your user account. If you
want to avoid this, please log out of the network before activating
the social plug-in. A social net-work cannot associate a visit
to other Daimler websites until you have activated an existing
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
The social plug-in remains active until you deactivate it
or delete your cookies.
c. If you click on the link to an offer or activate a social
plug-in, personal data may reach providers in countries outside
the European Economic Area that, from the point of view of
the European Union ("EU"), may not guarantee an
"adequate level of protection" for the processing
of personal data in accordance with EU standards. Please remember
this fact before clicking on a link or activating a social
plug-in and thereby triggering a transfer of your data.

which we only store for security reasons, will be deleted
after seven days. Oth-erwise, we delete your personal data
as soon as the purpose for which we have collected and processed

of your personal data by us, you have the right to revoke
