YOUR PRIVACY IS IMPORTANT TO US

Privacy Policy

It is MonPlas.eu's policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our website. This Privacy Policy applies to www.monplas.eu (hereinafter, "us", "we", or "www.monplas.eu"). We respect your privacy and are committed to protecting personally identifiable information you may provide us through the Website. We have adopted this privacy policy ("Privacy Policy") to explain what information may be collected on our Website, how we use this information, and under what circumstances we may disclose the information to third parties. This Privacy Policy applies only to information we collect through the Website and does not apply to our collection of information from other sources.

This Privacy Policy, together with the Terms and conditions posted on our Website, set forth the general rules and policies governing your use of our Website. Depending on your activities when visiting our Website, you may be required to agree to additional terms and conditions.

1. General information

  1. Extent of data processing
    We only process personal data collected from our users insofar as this is necessary for the provision of a functional web presence and our content and services. As a rule, personal data provided by our users is only processed with their consent. One exception is where statutory regulations permit the processing of data.

  2. Legal basis for data processing  
    Art. 6 (1)(a) of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis whenever we obtain the consent of the person concerned ("data subject") for the processing of their personal data.         
    Art. 6 (1)(b) of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis for the processing of personal data which is necessary for performing a contract to which the data subject is a party. The same applies to processing that is required for carrying out pre-contractual measures.          
    Art. 6 (1)(f) of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis when processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of monplas.eu or a third party, and provided this legitimate interest is not outweighed by the data subject’s interests and fundamental rights and freedoms.

  3. Data erasure and storage duration       
    The personal data of the data subject is erased, anonymised or blocked as soon as the purpose of the storage ceases to apply. In addition, storage may take place if required by European or national law in EU regulations, laws or other regulations to which monplas.eu is subject. Blocking, anonymisation or deletion of the data also takes place if a storage period prescribed by the standards mentioned expires, unless there is a need for further storage of the data in order to conclude or fulfil the contract.

  4. Controller’s contact details         
    Data controller within the meaning of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and other national data protection legislation as well as any other data protection regulations:
    Monplas.eu
    e-mail: info@monplas.eu

 

2. Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Monplas.eu collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Monplas.eu's purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Monplas.eu's visitors use its website. From time to time, Monplas.eu may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

 

3. Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information

Certain visitors to Monplas.eu's websites choose to interact with Monplas.eu in ways that require Monplas.eu to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Monplas.eu gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who sign up at http://www.monplas.eu/downloads to provide a username and email address.

Monplas.eu will under no circumstances give or sell any information of its users to third party.            
Visitors have the right to ask for removal of their data from monplas.eu´s records. If you want request this, please contact us at: info@monplas.eu

Monplas.eu will not send any newsletters to its registered users.

 

4. Cookies

a) Session cookies

We use cookies on our website. Cookies are small text files or other storage technologies stored on your computer by your browser. These cookies process certain specific information about you, such as your browser, location data, or IP address. 

This processing makes our website more user-friendly, efficient, and secure, allowing us, for example, to display our website in different languages or to offer a shopping cart function.

The legal basis for such processing is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b) GDPR, insofar as these cookies are used to collect data to initiate or process contractual relationships.

If the processing does not serve to initiate or process a contract, our legitimate interest lies in improving the functionality of our website. The legal basis is then Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f) GDPR.

When you close your browser, these session cookies are deleted.

b) Third-party cookies

If necessary, our website may also use cookies from companies with whom we cooperate for the purpose of advertising, analyzing, or improving the features of our website.

Please refer to the following information for details, in particular for the legal basis and purpose of such third-party collection and processing of data collected through cookies.

c) Disabling cookies

You can refuse the use of cookies by changing the settings on your browser. Likewise, you can use the browser to delete cookies that have already been stored. However, the steps and measures required vary, depending on the browser you use. If you have any questions, please use the help function or consult the documentation for your browser or contact its maker for support. Browser settings cannot prevent so-called flash cookies from being set. Instead, you will need to change the setting of your Flash player. The steps and measures required for this also depend on the Flash player you are using. If you have any questions, please use the help function or consult the documentation for your Flash player or contact its maker for support.

If you prevent or restrict the installation of cookies, not all of the functions on our site may be fully usable.

 

5. Contact form

There is a contact form on our website that can be used to contact us electronically. If you use this option, the data entered voluntarily in the input screen is transmitted to us and stored. This normally comprises your email address, first name and surname. We inform you about the actual processing of data while you are using the form and we obtain your consent. Reference is also made to the privacy notice. The data is used solely for processing the conversation.

The legal basis for processing the data when using the contact form, if the user’s consent has been given, is Art. 6 (1)(a) of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Personal data from the input screen is processed solely for the purpose of acting on the contact request. The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer needed to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. This is the case when the relevant conversation with the user has ended or when the user’s request has finally been processed. The conversation has ended when it is apparent from the circumstances that the issue in question has been finally clarified. The user may at any time withdraw their consent to the processing of personal data vis-à-vis the contact persons listed.

Your personal data will only be transmitted to government organisations and authorities if required by law and/or for the purpose of prosecution in the event of attacks on our network infrastructure. Forwarding to third parties for other purposes does not take place.

 

6. Security

The security of your Personal Information is important to us, but remember that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage is 100% secure. While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security

 

7. Links To External Sites

Our Service may contain links to external sites that are not operated by us. If you click on a third party link, you will be directed to that third party's site. We strongly advise you to review the Privacy Policy and terms and conditions of every site you visit. We have no control over, and assume no responsibility for the content, privacy policies or practices of any third party sites, products or services.

 

8. Aggregated Statistics

Monplas.eu may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its website. However, Monplas.eu does not disclose your personally-identifying information.

 

9. Rights of the data subject

With regard to the data processing to be described in more detail below, users and data subjects have the right

  • to confirmation of whether data concerning them is being processed, information about the data being processed, further information about the nature of the data processing, and copies of the data (cf. also Art. 15 GDPR);

  • to correct or complete incorrect or incomplete data (cf. also Art. 16 GDPR);

  • to the immediate deletion of data concerning them (cf. also Art. 17 DSGVO), or, alternatively, if further processing is necessary as stipulated in Art. 17 Para. 3 GDPR, to restrict said processing per Art. 18 GDPR;

  • to receive copies of the data concerning them and/or provided by them and to have the same transmitted to other providers/controllers (cf. also Art. 20 GDPR);

  • to file complaints with the supervisory authority if they believe that data concerning them is being processed by the controller in breach of data protection provisions (see also Art. 77 GDPR).

In addition, the controller is obliged to inform all recipients to whom it discloses data of any such corrections, deletions, or restrictions placed on processing the same per Art. 16, 17 Para. 1, 18 GDPR. However, this obligation does not apply if such notification is impossible or involves a disproportionate effort. Nevertheless, users have a right to information about these recipients.

Likewise, under Art. 21 GDPR, users and data subjects have the right to object to the controller's future processing of their data pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f) GDPR. In particular, an objection to data processing for the purpose of direct advertising is permissible
