Privacy Policy

Thank you for visiting our website and for your interest in Rügenwalder Mühle Carl Müller GmbH & Co. KG. We would like you to be able to browse our website with ease and not to experience any unpleasant surprises.

You can enter your personal data on the “Contact” page on our website. We collect, process or use personal data only if you voluntarily disclose this data and it is legally permissible to do so or you have given us your consent. This normally occurs when you conclude a contract with us online or send us an enquiry.

We use the personal data that you have disclosed solely for the purposes that have been advised or agreed, which generally means to administer the contract that has been concluded with you or to respond to your enquiry.

Even if you have not disclosed any personal data to us, data is collected by our Internet service provider in “log files” when you visit our website. This provides us with the name of your Internet service provider, your IP address, the website that you have left to come to our website, the pages that you visit on our site and the date, time and duration of your visit. This data is used solely for statistical purposes. We do not establish a direct personal link.

General information on the use of cookies

We use cookies on our website. These are text files that are stored in the web browser or by the web browser on the user’s computer system.

If you visit a particular website, a cookie may be stored on your operating system. This cookie contains a specific character string that uniquely identifies your browser if you visit that website again.

We use cookies, which store data on your computer during your visit to our website. Data is stored there that optimises how the web page is displayed and makes it easier for you to browse. We do not analyse the data. You can also protect yourself from these types of cookies by configuring the relevant settings in your web browser.

The legal basis for the processing of personal data using cookies derives from Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR.

No forwarding to third parties
Rügenwalder Mühle promises to treat your data confidentially. It is not forwarded to third parties, e.g. by selling, renting, exchanging or otherwise making it available to third parties.

Online applications
The collection, processing and use of personal data within the framework of an online application is used for the purposes of recruitment and to perform online application procedures. This is only done if you agree to the contents of our privacy notice and the corresponding use of your data.

Use of Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyse how you use the site. As a rule, the information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is transmitted to and stored by Google on a server in the USA.

Please note that Google Analytics has been supplemented by the “gat._anonymizeIp();” code on this website to ensure anonymised collection of IP addresses (“IP masking”). As a result, your IP address will be truncated by Google in advance in the Member States of the European Union or in other States party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and truncated there.

On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to analyse your use of the website, to compile reports about website activity and to provide the website operator with additional services relating to website activity and Internet usage. Google will not associate the IP address transmitted from your browser by Google Analytics with any other data held by Google. You may refuse the storage of cookies by selecting the appropriate setting in your browser software; however, please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website.

You can also prevent data generated by the cookie and relating to your use of the website (including your IP address) from being collected and processed by Google, by downloading and installing a browser plug-in from the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en-GB

You can prevent the collection of your data by Google Analytics by clicking on the following link. This places an opt-out cookie on your device, which prevents the collection of data when you visit this website in the future: Deactivating Google Analytics

Use of Google Tag Manager
This website uses Google Tag Manager. Using this service, website tags can be managed via an interface. Google Tag  Manager implements only tags. This means that no cookies are used and no personal data is collected. Google Tag Manager triggers other tags that in turn may record data. However, Google Tag Manager does not access this data. If it has been deactivated at domain or cookie level, it remains in effect for all tracking tags provided that they have been implemented using Google Tag Manager.

Use of ajax.googleapis.com/jQuery
We use the JavaScript library jQuery on our web pages. In order to increase the loading speed of our website and provide you with a better user experience, we use Google’s content delivery network (CDN) to load this library. It is highly likely that you have already used jQuery on another website that uses the Google CDN. If you have, your browser can access the copy stored in the cache and you do not need to download it again. If your browser does not have a copy stored in the cache or the file was downloaded from the Google CDN for some other reason, data from your browser will be transferred to Google Inc. (“Google”). For further information on how Google processes data, please refer to Google’s privacy policies, which are currently available at: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en-GB&gl=en-GB

Use of ytimg.com
JavaScript code provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (hereinafter: Google) is loaded on our website. If you have enabled JavaScript in your browser and have not installed a JavaScript blocker, your browser may send personal data to Google. We do not know with what data Google links the received data and for which purposes Google uses this data. To prevent Google’s JavaScript code from running at all, you can install a JavaScript blocker (e.g. www.noscript.net).

Use of YouTube
Our website integrates videos via YouTube, a company owned by Google. The operator of the website is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. The JavaScript library is loaded to embed videos from the YouTube server. The YouTube server is then informed about the pages you have visited on our website.

When you are logged in to your YouTube account, you enable YouTube to assign your browsing behaviour directly to your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account.

For further information on the handling of user data, please refer to YouTube’s privacy policy at: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en-GB&gl=en-GB

Use of MyFonts Counter
Our website design relies on, among other things, fonts for display purposes. These are provided by MyFonts Inc., 600 Unicorn Park Drive, Woburn, MA 01801, USA. For the purposes of licensing and billing of the fonts that we use on this website, a counter URL on the MyFonts server is called each time that a page is viewed. MyFonts obtains your IP address in this way. No data or scripts are loaded or run by the MyFonts server. Further information on data protection in relation to MyFonts can be obtained at the following link: https://www.myfonts.com/info/terms-and-conditions

Use of buttons with links to social networks
On our website, we use buttons with links to our Facebook, YouTube, Twitter and Instagram pages as well as buttons to share our content on social media. These buttons do not transfer any data to the social networks named here. It is only when you click on these buttons that you leave our website and are directed to the social network page that you have clicked on. You are then no longer on our website but rather on the website of the social network that you clicked on. Once you are there, depending on your browser settings or the settings in the social network, personal data is collected about you. You will find the relevant terms and conditions in the privacy policies of the social networks that you have clicked on. We cannot take any responsibility for these.

We have omitted Facebook “Like” buttons on our web pages, as they would collect data about you even if you did not click on these buttons.

Legal grounds
The legal basis for data processing on this website is the EU General Data Protection Regulation. Data is only stored for as long as it is required for the above-mentioned purposes.

The regional data protection commissioners are the supervisory authorities. If you suspect irregularities in relation to how we protect your data, you can make a complaint about us to them. However, you can also contact our external data protection officer directly.

In accordance with the prevailing data protection legislation, we will be happy to advise you whether we have personal data stored about you and, if so, what that data is. To find this out, please contact our data protection officer directly.
