We only ascertain the name of your internet service provider, the website from which you are visiting us, and the individual pages that you access from us. Personal data is collected and processed only if you use certain services, for example if you insert an advertisement or send inquiries to advertisers.

2. Why do we gather and process personal data?

Machineseeker is an informational service intended to act as a broker between advertisers and potential buyers in order to initiate business. Consequently, advertisers/potential buyers will inevitably have to provide contact information so that such business dealings are possible in the first place. Insofar as services are used, we generally only collect data that we need to render those services.

We expect advertisers who modify/add content on our website to provide a correct address and email address in order to make clear who the responsible party is for the listed/modified content.

If we ask you for more detailed data, such data is voluntary. Personal data is processed solely n order to provide the requested services and to protect our own legitimate business interests.

3. Is personal data disclosed to third parties?

We will not disclose, transfer, sell or otherwise market your personal data to other companies or institutions, unless we have your express consent. This does not apply if we are obligated to disclose and transfer the data on the basis of law or as a result of a court decision.

Email inquiries for advertisements/dealer advertisements with contact forms provided by us will be forwarded to the respective advertiser following automated or manual spam control and (solely for the advertiser) kept/saved for up to 12 months so that they may be accessed again. Thereafter, the data is automatically deleted. You can always prematurely delete your data by initiating contact without a form.

4. Security

We reserve the right to change this policy at any time. It does not constitute contractual or other legal rights vis-a-vis or on behalf of any party.
