II. data protection notice for the website https://lgbatteryblog.eu

As the operator of the website https://lgbatteryblog.eu, we would like to give you an overview of how we guarantee the protection of your personal data on our website and other online contact forms and which types of personal data we process for which purposes and to which extent.

1. processing of data – offers of our website

This information (server log files) includes, for example, the type of web browser, the operating system used, the domain name of your Internet service provider and the like. In addition, the IP address is transmitted and used to use the service you have requested. This information is technically necessary for the correct delivery of content requested by you from websites and is mandatory when using the Internet. These log file data are immediately anonymized or deleted by us. The legal basis for the data processing is Art. 6 sec. 1 lit. f GDPR.

If you make use of services offered on our website, we may collect additional personal data from you. We process these as far as it is necessary for the provision of the services requested by you. In addition, you may voluntarily enter other personal data. We describe the legal basis for the functions and offers described individually below.

If you send us an enquiry by e-mail, we will collect the data you have provided for the purpose of processing your enquiry and will, if necessary, comply with your expressed wishes. The legal basis in both cases is Art. 6 sec.1 lit. f GDPR.

Further processing of your data by us or other companies beyond this purpose will not take place, with the exception of the use described below, unless there is a legal basis for permission or you have given your consent.

2. safety instructions

We take technical and operational security precautions on our websites to protect personal data stored with us from access by third parties, loss or misuse and to enable secure data transfer.

We must point out that due to the structure of the Internet, unwanted data access by third parties may occur. It is therefore also your responsibility to protect your data against misuse by encryption or other means. Without appropriate protective measures, unencrypted data in particular can be read by third parties, even by e-mail.

3. Cookie Guideline from LG Chem

Our website uses so-called cookies. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your terminal and stored by your browser. They serve to make our offers more user-friendly, more effective and safer. We can use so-called temporary cookies, which are automatically deleted when you close your browser (“session cookies”) and persistent (permanent) cookies.

You have the choice whether you want to allow the setting of cookies or not. You can make changes in your browser settings. You have the choice whether you accept all cookies, whether you are informed when cookies are set or whether you want to reject all cookies. If you decide for the last variant, it is possible that you cannot use our offer completely.

When cookies are used, a distinction must be made between the mandatory cookies and those required for further purposes (measurement of access figures, advertising purposes).

We use session cookies on our websites, which are absolutely necessary for the use of our websites. This includes cookies that allow us to recognize you while you are visiting the site in a single session.

4. Appearances on social media platforms for employers

We also have various appearances in platforms that are intended to link employers and employees (social media platforms). At present we operate the appearances with the following providers:

Name Company name and
address URL of our website Information on
data protection
Xing (mit der Website Kununu.de) Xing SE, Dammtorstraße 30b
20354 Hamburg https://www.xing.com/companies/lgchemeuropegmbh https://privacy.xing.com/de/datenschutzerklaerung

For these information services we rely on the technical platform and the services of the providers. We would like to point out that you use our presence on social media platforms and their functions on your own responsibility. This applies in particular to the use of interactive functions (e.g. commenting, sharing, rating). When you visit our websites, the providers of the social media platforms record, among other things, your IP address and other information that is available on your end device in the form of cookies. This information is used to provide us, as the operator of the accounts, with statistical information about the interaction with us.

We do not know how the social media platforms use the data from your visit to our account and interaction with our contributions for their own purposes, how long this data is stored and whether data is passed on to third parties. Data processing may vary depending on whether you are registered and logged into the social network or visit the site as an unregistered and/or unregistered user. When accessing a contribution or the account, the IP address assigned to your terminal is transmitted to the provider of the social media platform. If you are currently logged in as a user, a cookie on your terminal device can be used to track how you have navigated the network. If you want to avoid this, you should log out, delete the cookies on your device and restart your browser. Your data may be transferred to the USA, in which case we will only use EU US Privacy Shield (www.privacyshield.gov) certified providers. Xing (with Kununu) are located within the EU.

As the provider of the information service, we only process the data from your use of our service which you provide to us and which result from your interaction with us. If, for example, you ask a question that we can only answer by e-mail, we will store your information in accordance with the general principles of our data processing, which we describe in this data protection declaration. Depending on the functions of the employer platforms (on which we have no influence), further information about you may be displayed to us via the profiles of the providers. The legal basis for the processing of your data on the social media platform is Art. 6 sec. 1 lit. f GDPR.

To exercise your rights, you can contact us or the provider of the social media platform. If one party is not responsible for responding or is required to receive the information from the other party, we or the Provider will then forward your request to the other party. Please contact the operator of the social media platform directly if you have any questions about profile formation or the processing of your data when using the website. If you have any questions regarding the processing of your interaction with us on our site, please feel free to write to privacy@lgchem.com.

Which information the social media platform receives and how it is used are described by the providers in their data protection declarations (see link in the table). There you will also find information about contact possibilities as well as about the possibilities for placing advertisements.
