Collection and processing of personal data

­Personal­ data is all­ infor­ma­tion about­ your­ iden­ti­ty such as­ your name, e‑mail address or postal address­. Unless otherwise­ agreed­ with LTW­, LTW col­lects only­ simple­ personal­ data nec­es­sary for our busi­ness rela­tion­ship, such as your name, job title­, address,­ tele­phone num­ber, e‑mail address and other­ con­tact information­. Such­ data­ is only col­lect­ed if you­ make­ this­ information­ available­ to LTW­, e.g. if you­ order­ infor­ma­tion mate­r­i­al and use a con­tact form for this pur­pose or request this via e‑mail,­ sub­scribe to an e‑mail infor­ma­tion service­, apply for a job­ online via our appli­cant portal­ or­ take part in­ a sur­vey or a com­pe­ti­tion. ­LTW col­lects this­ data only direct­ly from you and not from other­ third par­ties. The legal basis for the pro­cess­ing in this respect results from Art. 6 para. 1 sen­tence 1 lit. b) GDPR.


Use and disclosure of personal data

LTW will use your­ personal­ data to­ respond to­ your inquiry­,­ process­ your­ order­ or­ provide­ you­ with­ access to special­ information­ or­ offers that­ you­ have­ request­ed from us. For­ exam­ple,­ if you­ complete­ an online con­tact form­, LTW will use this infor­ma­tion to­­ contact­ you regard­ing your­ inter­est in the­ Ser­vices. The legal basis for the pro­cess­ing in this respect results from Art. 6 para. 1 sen­tence 1 lit. b) GDPR.

­LTW will­ not sell or otherwise­ mar­ket your­ personal­ data to­ third par­ties or­ pass it on­ for their­ adver­tis­ing pur­pos­es. ­If you­ have­ express­ly con­sent­ed to­ this pur­suant to Art. 6 para. 1 sen­tence 1 lit. a) GDPR­, LTW will­ pass on­ your­ data to its­ sub­sidiaries and­ part­ner com­pa­nies so that­ they­ can­ con­tact ­you directly­.

You have the right to revoke your con­sent at any time with effect for the future. The law­ful­ness of the pro­cess­ing until revo­ca­tion remains unaf­fect­ed.

LTW will­ only­ process your­ data­ with­in the­ Euro­pean Union.­ Trans­fers of data­ to­ third coun­tries shall­ only take place with­in the­ frame­work of the­ admin­is­tra­tion of IT sys­tems in­ accor­dance with the GDPR-reg­u­la­tions about data pro­cess­ing agree­ments and only to the extent that a) the­ trans­fer is­ basically­ per­mis­si­ble and b) the­ special­ con­di­tions for a­ trans­fer to a third country­ are met, in­ par­tic­u­lar the data importer­ guar­an­tees ­an adequate­ lev­el of data pro­tec­tion in accor­dance with­ the EU mod­el claus­es for the­ trans­fer of­ personal­ data to­ order proces­sors with­in the­ frame­work of data pro­cess­ing in­ third coun­tries.


Duration of storage

LTW will­ only­ store your­ personal­ data for as long as­ nec­es­sary to­ pro­vide the­ ser­vices or­ information­ you have requested­ and for the dura­tion of our busi­ness rela­tion­ship. In­ addi­tion,­ we store your­ data only to the extent­ nec­es­sary to­ com­ply with­ legal­ stor­age oblig­a­tions or for the dura­tion of legal dis­putes to pro­tect our legit­i­mate inter­ests. We­ will­ delete­ your­ data­ imme­di­ate­ly if­ it is­ no longer­ need­ed for the pur­pos­es men­tioned.


Automatically collected information

When you access the­ web­site, ­gen­er­al infor­ma­tion is­ collected­ auto­mat­i­cal­ly (i.e. not through­ reg­is­tra­tion).­ Automatically­ saved are:

  • the short­ened and thus anonymized IP address. Due to the short­en­ing an iden­ti­fi­a­bil­i­ty is not pos­si­ble,
  • the­ web­site you­ last vis­it­ed (refer­rer),
  • the names of the­ files retrieved,
  • the date and time of the retrieval,
  • the­ oper­at­ing sys­tem and brows­er ver­sion of­ your PC.


Notes on Web Analysis

For the pur­pose of analysing and opti­mis­ing our web­sites, we use var­i­ous ser­vices which are described below. For exam­ple, we can ana­lyze how many users vis­it our site, what infor­ma­tion is most in demand, or how users find the ser­vice. Among oth­er things, we col­lect data about from which web­site a per­son con­cerned came to a web­site (so-called refer­rer), which sub­pages of the web­site were accessed or how often and for how long a sub­page was viewed. This helps us to make our offers user-friend­ly and to improve them. The data col­lect­ed in this process is not used to iden­ti­fy indi­vid­ual users per­son­al­ly. Anony­mous or at most pseu­do­ny­mous data is col­lect­ed. The legal basis for this is Arti­cle 6 para. 1 sen­tence 1 lit. f ) GDPR.



Google­ Analytics

This­ web­site uses Google­ Analytics­, a web ana­lyt­ics service­ pro­vid­ed by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google­ Analytics­ uses­ “­cook­ies”, which­ are­ text­files placed on your­ com­put­er, to help the­ website­ ana­lyze how users use the­ site. The­ information­ gen­er­at­ed by cookies­ about your use of this­ web­site is usually­ transferred­ to a­ Google serv­er in the USA­ and­ stored­ there. How­ev­er, by mak­ing your IP address IP­ anony­mous on this­ web­site, Google will­ pre­vi­ous­ly short­en your­ IP address­ within­ Mem­ber States of the­ Euro­pean Union or other­ coun­tries par­ty to the­ Agree­ment on the­ European­ Eco­nom­ic Area. Only in­ excep­tion­al cas­es is the­ full IP address­ transmitted­ to a­ Google serv­er in the USA­ and short­ened there. On­ behalf of the oper­a­tor of this­ web­site, Google will­ use­ this­ infor­ma­tion to­ evaluate­ your use of the­ website­, to­ compile­ reports on­ web­site activity­ and to­ provide­ other­ services­ relat­ing to web­site activity­ and­ inter­net usage­ to the­ web­site oper­a­tor. ­Google uses pseu­do­nyms for­ this purpose­. The­ IP address­ transmitted­ by your­ brows­er as­ part of Google­ Analytics­ is not­ combined­ with other­ data from Google­.


Opposition to tracking

The collection­ and stor­age of data­ for web analy­sis purposes­ may­ be­ revoked at­ any time with effect for the­ future­. The website­ remains­ com­plete­ly usable­ after an­ objec­tion. By­ click­ing the­ “Track­ing Opt-Out”­ button­ below, track­ing is­ completely­ disabled­. ­Your­ browser­ must­ accept­ permanent­ cookies­ so that the­ objec­tion can­ also be made per­ma­nent­ly for­ future vis­its.
You­ may refuse­ the use of­ cook­ies by select­ing the appropriate­ set­tings on your­ browser­, 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 ­Google­ from ­col­lect­ing the­ data­ generated­ by the cookie­ and­ related­ to your use of the­ website­ (includ­ing your IP address) and­ Google from­ pro­cess­ing this­ data by­ down­load­ing and­ installing the­ brows­er plug-in­ available­ under this link.


Use of the IP address

­Com­put­ers and devices­ con­nect­ed to­ the­ Inter­net are­ assigned­ a­ unique­ num­ber,­ called an­ IP address. Because these­ num­bers are­ usually­ assigned­ in­ coun­try-based­ blocks­, an IP address can­ often be­ used to­ identify­ the coun­try (state or city) in­ which the­ com­put­er is con­nect­ing to the­ Inter­net. Google­ Analytics­ col­lects the IP address­es of­ web­site visitors­. In this way, the­ web­site owner­ can­ ana­lyze from which parts of the world his­ visitors­ come. This­ method is ­called geo­tar­get­ing IP addresses­. ­Google­ Analytics­ does­ not­ share­ actu­al IP address infor­ma­tion with Google Analytics­ cus­tomers. ­The IP mask method is also­ used: ­Web­site own­ers who­ use­ Google­ Analytics­ can­ set ­it so­ that only part of the IP address is ­used for geotargeting­ instead of the entire IP address­. ­Web­site owners­ gen­er­al­ly have access to the IP address­es of their­ web­site visitors­,­ regard­less of how they use Google­ Analytics­.



­So-called­ ses­sion cookies­ are­ used on the lng-wil­helmshaven­ web­site and all associated­ sub­do­mains in order to­ offer­ users greater­ con­ve­nience. For­ exam­ple,­ vis­i­tors to Uniper’s websites­ can­ con­tin­ue to­ order brochures­ even after they have­ switched to anoth­er page in the­ mean­time, without­ hav­ing to re-enter their­ own­ data. ­A­ ses­sion cook­ie is­ also­ used for­ web analy­sis. At­ no­ time will­ personal­ data
 be­ stored ­in a cook­ie.
