Collection and processing of personal data

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.

Automatically collected information
When you access the lng-wilhelmshaven.com 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.
YOU MAY OBJECT TO THE PROCESSING OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA FOR REASONS ARISING FROM YOUR PARTICULAR SITUATION, IF THE PROCESSING OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA IS CARRIED OUT ON THE BASIS OF ART. 6 PARA. 1 LIT.) E) OR LIT. F) GDPR.
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 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.
