Which data are collected?
We exclusively collect the following data:

1. Data of use
Within the use of our website as well as the offered services (e.g. contact form) we only collect those data which you are actively providing. These are contents of messages which you are providing by e-mail or via contact form, but also data which you provide on a voluntary basis through surveys. When carrying out surveys, we will collect data on an anonymous basis only as far as possible.

In the event we should be legally obliged to obtain your consent to data collection, data processing and data sharing (e.g. to receive newsletters), we will store date, time and IP-address of this consent in order to provide the legally required evidence.

2. Purpose of data collection and, if applicable, transmission of the data
We only collect personal data if you provide it to us voluntarily, for example in connection with an enquiry. Data is entered in the areas described below:

Contact forms
The contact form offers interested parties the possibility to send inquiries directly to BECHEM. Due to legal regulations, the website also contains information (e.g. in the imprint) that enables rapid electronic contact with our company (e.g. via e-mail address). If a person contacts us via e-mail or a contact form, the personal data transmitted by the person will be stored automatically. Data transmitted during this contact will be stored for the purpose of processing or contacting the person concerned. In most cases, the e-mails sent are delivered to general mailboxes of the departments or representatives or assistants of senior employees. Unless required for the purpose of processing, this personal data is not passed on to third parties outside the Group companies.

ARCO rights. It has been established that the Owner of Personal Data shall have the right to access, correct, terminate, or oppose these rights in accordance with the Law. To fulfill these rights, as well as the right to revoke his consent, the Owner of Personal Data should follow the procedure described below:

The request to access, correct, terminate or oppose, as well as the revocation of consent, should be in written form and sent to CARL BECHEM MÉXICO Lubrication Technology S.R.L., registered office in IOS OFFICES PUNTO SUR, Prol.

The Responsible Party shall communicate the ruling that has been made to the Owner within no more than 20 (twenty) business days after receiving the corresponding properly filed request, to the effect that if the ruling is in the Owner’s favor, it will become effective within 15 (fifteen) business days following the date that this ruling is communicated to the Owner. In accordance with legal provisions, the aforementioned terms may be extended once within an equal period of time, always and whenever the circumstances of the situation justify it.

The fact that the Owner has demonstrated his opposition to the Handling of his Personal Data may not be a motive for the Responsible Party to deny offered and/or contracted products and/or services to the Owner.

Amendments. The current Privacy Notice may be amended by a simple written notice from the Responsible Party directed toward the Owner of Personal Data or by means of publishing the corresponding amendment on this website at least 30 (thirty) calendar days before the anticipated effective date of the amendment.

If no opposition has been raised within 30 (thirty) calendar days prior to the effective date or if the opposition is unfounded, the amendments to this Privacy Notice shall be considered accepted under all legal provisions currently in place. This prior procedure shall not be necessary if the amendments appear in accordance with the written signature of the Owner to whom the Personal Data pertains.
