1. Collection, processing, and use of personal data
Personal data is information that identifies you, such as your name, e-mail or postal addresses. Beiersdorf does not collect personal data from you except when you specifically provide such data (e.g. when subscribing to e-mail newsletters, taking part in a survey, entering a contest, ordering samples or brochures, or requesting information) and consent to its use.
We store, use, or transfer your personal data only accordingly to your consent and to the extent – with respect to content and time – needed in each specific case, e.g. to respond to your questions or concerns, to fulfill your requests or to inform you about the results of a contest. In order to do this, it may be necessary for Beiersdorf to transfer personal data to other companies within the Beiersdorf Group or to external service providers for further data processing. Service providers may, for example, be commissioned in the context of shipping goods, distributing advertising material or in the scope of contests. Beiersdorf requires that these parties agree to process personal data based on our instructions and in compliance with this data protection policy.
Any other transfer of your personal data, for example the transfer of logon data from our websites to a third party’s social community website or web service like Facebook or Twitter, requires your explicit prior consent. Beiersdorf guarantees that it will not sell or lease your personal data to a third party. We may, however, have to disclose information about you if we are required to do so by law or in response to enforceable governmental requests.
