5. Retention period of personal information

Personal Information which are not subject to a statutory retention period will be deleted and/or destroyed as soon as they are no longer needed to achieve the purpose for which they were handled. Different retention periods apply to different types of personal information. Finally, the storage period can also be based on the statutory limitation periods.

Specifically, we will retain the personal information mentioned under Section 2 of this Policy collected on this website as follows:

1. If a cooperation relationship is established between you and Coroflex, your personal information will usually be retained for the duration of the contractual relationship.

2. If you do not enter into a contract with Coroflex, your personal information is usually retained for a maximum of 6 months.

Personal information will not be disclosed to anyone else without your consent. Such personal information will only be shared with third parties with your consent, or insofar as we are obliged to divulge them to public authorities or other government institutions as a result of statutory provisions or judicial decisions.

We may employ service providers to perform functions and provide services on our behalf (entrusted handling). Specifically, our website is hosted by an external service provider. We ensure that the recipient handles the information in accordance with this Policy, for example, by entering into a personal information entrustment agreement with service providers. These agreements specify all reasonable contractual, legal, technical and organizational measures to ensure that the recipient provides adequate protection with respect to handling your information and complies with applicable laws.

7. Cross-border transmission of personal information

The servers of this website are located in Germany and the personal information provided by the visitors in Chinese mainland during their visit of this website will, in principle, be directly stored in Germany. 

As the server for this website is located in Germany, this means that, with your consent, your personal information (as stated above in sections 2 of this Policy) will be stored directly at the headquarter of Coroflex or be accessible from the jurisdiction. If you refuse to consent to the storage of personal information on server in Germany, you will not be able to continue to browse this website. The contact details of Coroflex headquarter are listed below. You may exercise all of your rights with respect to personal information under Section 9 of this Policy by contacting Coroflex headquarter as described below. Such cross-border transmission of personal information is necessary for server setup and is only possible in order to fulfill the relevant contractual obligations, to comply with legal requirements or if you provide your separate consent.

Address: Wittener Straße 271, 42279 Wuppertal, Germany

Email address: [robert.steyer@coroplast-group.com]

Such jurisdiction may have different data protection laws, or even no relevant laws. In such cases, we will ensure that your personal information is adequately protected to the same extent as it is within the People's Republic of China. For example, we may request your separate consent for cross-border transfer of your personal information or implement security measures such as data de-identification prior to cross-border data transfer.

8. Network security

We would like to point out that no personal information transmission over the Internet (e.g. when communicating by email) can be guaranteed to be absolutely secure and vulnerabilities can never be ruled out entirely. While we make every effort to protect your personal information, complete protection against access by third parties is not possible. You should therefore send all confidential data to us by another method, for example by post.

Internet cannot be 100% safe and we will use our best efforts to ensure or warrant the security of any information you send to us. In case that our physical, technical or managerial protection facilities are damaged, causing your legitimate rights and interests damaged due to unauthorized access, public disclosure, alteration or destruction of the information, we will assume liabilities subject to laws.

Upon occurrence of any unfortunate personal information security incident, we will timely in accordance with requirements provided in laws and regulations inform you of: basic security incident information and possible impact, countermeasures we have adopted or will adopt, suggestions on your autonomous preventing and mitigating risks, remedial measures for you, etc. We will timely notify you of the incident via email, mail, phone call, push notifications, etc.; in case that it is impossible for us to inform each personal information subject, we will use reasonable effective ways to publish announcement. Meanwhile, we will also actively report the handling of such incident in accordance with the requirements of the regulatory authorities. 

9. Your rights
