1. Data protection
We are delighted about your visit to our websites and your interest in what we offer. We greatly value the protection of your personal data. In this data protection notification we explain how we collect your personal data, what we do with your personal data, for which purposes we use your data, the legal basis for this as well as your rights and requirement arising from this. We also point out the Daimler data protection guideline:
Daimler data protection guideline.
Our data protection information for the use of our websites and the Daimler AG data protection guideline do not apply to your activities on social network websites or other providers that can be reached using links on our websites. Please obtain information about the respective data protection regulations on the websites of said providers.
2. Collecting and processing your personal data
A. When you visit our websites we save particular information about the browser and operating system you use, the date and time of your visit, the access status (e.g. whether you were able to open a website or received an error message), the use of website functions, search terms you potentially entered, the frequency you open individual websites, the relationship of files you open, the transferred data quantity, the website from which you accessed our websites and the website you visit after having visited our website either because you click links on our websites or directly enter a domain in the input field of the same tab (or the same window) of the browser you used to open our websites. For safety reasons, in particular to prevent and detect attacks on our websites or fraudulent behaviour, we also save your IP address and the name of your Internet service provider for a duration of seven days.
b. We exclusively save any other personal data if you provide us with this data, e.g. as part of registration, a contact form, a survey, prize draw or to conclude a contract and in these cases exclusively to the extent we have been permitted to on the basis of your consent or as per the statutory stipulations (refer to the section entitled "Legal basis of processing" for more information).
c. You are not legally, nor contractually obliged to surrender your personal data. It may be possible that certain functions of our websites depend on your surrender of personal data. If, in these cases, you do not surrender your personal data to us, it may have the consequence that functions are not available or only available to a limited extent.
3. Purposes of use
A. We use the collected personal data as part of a visit to our websites to operate them as conveniently as possible for you and to protect our IT systems from attacks and other, illegal activities.
b. Insofar as you provide us with additional personal data, e.g. as part of registration, a contact form, survey, prize draw or to conclude a contract we use this data for the listed purposes, for the purposes of customer management and – insofar as necessary – to process and settle potential business transactions, in each case to the required extent.
4. Sending personal information to third parties; social plug-ins
A. Our websites may also involve third-party offers. If you click such an offer we send data to the corresponding provider to the required extent (e.g. the information that you found this offer on our website and potentially additional information you may have entered on our websites for this purpose).
b. If we use so-called social plug-ins by social networks, such as Facebook, Twitter and Google+ on our websites, we integrate them as follows:
If you visit our websites, these social plug-ins have been deactivated, i.e. no data is sent to the operators of these networks. If you would like to use one of these networks, click the corresponding social plug-in to establish a direct connection to the server of the corresponding network.
If you have a user account with the corresponding network and you are logged in to this specific social network at the time you activate the social plug-in, this network can attribute your visit to our websites or to your user account. If you would like to prevent this, please log out from the network prior to activating the social plug-in. A social network is unable to attribute a visit to other Daimler websites before you have not also activated any available social plug-in there.
If you activate a social plug-in, the network directly transfers the consequently available data to your browser which integrates it into our websites. In this situation there may also be data transfers that are initiated and controlled by the corresponding social network. Exclusively the data protection regulations of the corresponding network shall apply to your connection to a social network, data transfers taking place between your system and the network and your interactions on this platform.
The social plug-in remains active until you deactivate it or delete your cookies.
c. If you click the link to an offer or activate a social plug-in, it may be that personal data is transferred to providers in countries outside the European Economic Area that do not guarantee "adequate levels of protection" that meets EU standards for the processing of personal data from a perspective of the European Union ("EU"). Please consider this before clicking a link or activating a social plug-in and consequently trigger any transfer of your data.
5. Evaluating usage data; using analysis tools

b. When using these analysis tools data may be transferred to servers in the USA where it is processed. For this reason, please note the following: from the perspective of the European Union "adequate levels of protection" as per EU standards do not apply in the USA in terms of the processing of personal data. However, this level of protection can be replaced for individual companies by certification as per the so-called "EU-U.S. Privacy Shield".
