Henkel Lebanon, respects the privacy of each person who visits our website. Now we would like to inform you of the type of data collected by Henkel and how they are used. You will also learn how you can check the accuracy of this information and arrange for the deletion of these data by Henkel. Data are collected, processed and used in conformity with the data protection regulations of the country in which the responsible data processing department is located. We take any action required to ensure compliance.
This Privacy Statement does not apply to websites accessible from hyperlinks on Henkel websites.
2. Collection, use and processing of personal data
When visiting our website, certain data are automatically stored on our servers for the purpose of system administration or for statistical or backup purposes. These data comprise the name of your Internet service provider, in some cases your IP address, the version of your browser software, the operating system of the computer used to access our website, the website you are using to visit us, the websites that you visit while you are with us and, if applicable, any search terms you have been using to find our website. Depending on the circumstances, such data may allow that conclusions be drawn about certain visitors to the website. However, no person-related data are used in this context. Such data are used solely after having been rendered anonymously. If Henkel transfers data to an external service-provider, technical and organizational measures will be taken so that their transmission occurs in conformity with applicable statutory data protection regulations.
If you voluntarily supply us with personal-related data, we shall not use, process or transfer these data beyond the limits permitted by statute or defined by yourself in your declaration of consent.
Henkel will store your data safely and, therefore, take all precautionary measures to protect your data against loss, abuse or changes. Contractual partners of Henkel who have access to your data in order to provide services to you on behalf of Henkel are contractually obliged to treat this data in the same manner as Henkel. Henkel may not be held liable for any misuse or abuse of the data by any of its contractual partners.
6. Web Tracking
“Provided you have consented, this website uses Adobe Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Adobe Systems Software Ireland Limited (4-6 Riverwalk, City West Business Campus, Saggart, Dublin 24, Ireland) (“Adobe”). For this purpose, a cookie is installed on your device. This cookie will collect data such as browser and device information, your IP address, visited websites, and date and time of server request for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website provider.
Adobe (as a controller) may use your data for any own purposes as for profiling and linking your data to other data collected about you (e.g. through your Adobe Account).
The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and processed by Adobe on servers in the United Kingdom. For this third country data transfer, an adequate level of data protection is ensured by standard contractual clauses, Art. 46 GDPR, pending an adequacy decision by the European Commission (Art. 45 GDPR).
We have activated the IP anonymization, which means that the last octet (the last portion) of the IP address is immediately hidden when the IP address is collected by Adobe. This anonymization is performed prior to any processing of the IP address. Only an approximate location will be available for the purpose of statistical analysis. After the geo-lookup, everywhere in Analytics the IP addresses are obfuscated – replaced with :: X.X.X.X.
By allowing cookies on the Henkel-website you agree to the use of the above-mentioned data and the previously described processing by Adobe.
