Privacy statement

Note on the data controller:
GLI Global Logistik Internationale Speditions GmbH (hereinafter referred to as GLI) take protecting your personal data very seriously. Your personal data will be stored and used in line with data protection provisions, specifically the European Union General Data Protection Regulation (EU GDPR) and the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG).
The information below gives an overview of the type, extent and purpose of collection, processing and disclosure of personal data, as well as the security precautions taken to protect this data.

Personal data refers to individual information about the personal or material circumstances of a specific or identifiable natural person, such as name, address, telephone number, date of birth, as well as your email and IP address.


Server log files
When you visit our website or use its services, the device you use to access this site will automatically send log data (connection data) to our server. The information concerned consists of the name of the website, the file, the current date, quantity of data, the web browser and its version, the operating system used, the domain name of your internet provider, the referrer URL, i.e. the site you visited before our site, as well as the corresponding IP address. This data is stored in anonymous form, in line with the German Telemedia Act (TMG). Creation of personal user profiles is therefore not possible.

The data collected is used exclusively for statistical analyses, for the purpose of operation, security and optimisation of the web presence. However, we reserve the right to subsequently check the log data, if specific grounds justify suspicion of unlawful use.

We use ‘cookies’ in some areas of the website, for example to identify user preferences and to optimise design of the website accordingly. Cookies allow us to make navigation easier and to make the website very user-friendly.

Cookies are small files that are saved on a visitor’s hard drive. Most of the cookies used on this website are ‘session cookies’. They are automatically deleted after the end of your session. Other cookies remain stored on your terminal device until you delete them. These cookies allow your browser to be recognised the next time you visit the website.

You can set your browser to inform you when cookies are placed. This makes use of cookies transparent for you. If you do not accept cookies, you might not be able to use some of the functions of this website. Use of cookies constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of GDPR.

Contact form
If you send us an enquiry using the contact form, we will store your personal data for the purposes of processing the enquiry, as well as any associated follow-up questions. We will not disclose this data without your consent.The data given in the contact form is only processed on the basis of your consent (Article 6(1)(a) GDPR).

We will store the data you provide in the contact form until you request its deletion, withdraw your consent for its storage, or if it is no longer necessary to store the data (e.g. if the processing of your enquiry is complete).

Data security
We take technical and organisational security precautions to appropriately protect the data you make available from accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction or access by unauthorised persons. We therefore use SSL encoding for transmission of confidential content, such as enquiries that you send to us as the website operator. Secure connections are recognisable because the browser’s address bar will change from ‘http://’ to ‘https://’, and the padlock symbol will appear in the address bar. The data that you send us cannot be read by third parties if SSL encoding is activated. We continually develop our security measures in line with technology.

Webinar registration
If you register for a webinar on our website your personal data will be collected. This includes the name, the address as well as the telephone number and the e-mail address as contact and communication data.

Your data will be used for the handling of the registration process only and, if necessary, we will pass them on to payment service providers commissioned by us. Apart from that no data shall be forwarded to third parties. Your personal data will be processed on the basis of contract execution (in accordance with art. 6 sec. 1 lit. b) and they will be deleted upon the expiry of the statutory data retention period.

Registration on our website
If you register on our website to receive services and information, we will collect personal data from you. This data includes your name, address, telephone number and email address as contact and communication data.

Registration enables users to access services and content. Only we will record your data for dealing with the issue you have contacted us about. We will not forward your data to third parties over and above this. Your personal data is processed on the basis of performing the contract (pursuant to Article 6 (1)(b)). This data is deleted in line with statutory safekeeping obligations.

If you subscribe to our newsletter on our website, we will only use the personal data you provide in connection with this for the purpose of sending the newsletter.

Users subscribe to our newsletter by means of a double opt-in process. This means that, after subscribing, you will receive an email where you are asked to confirm your registration. This confirmation is required to prevent subscriptions from third-party email addresses. Subscriptions to the newsletter are recorded so that the subscription process can be proven according to the statutory requirements (consent pursuant to Article 6(1)(a) GDPR). This includes storing the time of subscription and confirmation, as well as the IP address.
We will not disclose to third parties any of the data we receive from you, or the information recorded. You can withdraw your consent to collection and storage of your data, as well as its use for sending the newsletter, at any time, without having to give reasons. You will find a link for cancelling the newsletter at the end of each newsletter.

Links to websites from other providers

Our web presence contains links to websites from other providers. We have no influence over whether these providers comply with data protection provisions.

Opposition to advertising emails
The legal obligation to provide information about our website requires us to publish our contact details. Contact details are sometimes used by third parties to send unwanted advertisements and information. We therefore oppose any

transmission of advertising materials of any kind, unless we have expressly authorised it. Furthermore, we expressly reserve the right to take legal action against unwanted and unsolicited sending of advertising materials. This applies, in particular, to spam emails, letters and faxes. We also point out that unauthorised sending of advertising materials can also constitute an offence under competition law, civil law and criminal law. Spam emails and faxes, in particular, can result in large claims for compensation if they disrupt business activities by flooding mailboxes or fax machines.

Your rights
If you ask us to do so in writing, we will be happy to inform you whether we store your personal data and to what extent, in line with our statutory obligation (Article 12 EU GDPR). You also have the right to have incorrect data amended, or personal data blocked or deleted, unless statutory retention periods conflict with this, as well as the right to lodge a complaint to the supervisory authority pursuant to Article 13(2)(d) EU GDPR.

You also have the option of withdrawing your consent to our collection, processing and disclosure of your personal data, with effect for the future. Please use the contact address given below for this purpose.

If you have any questions about processing of your personal data, you can contact our Data Protection Supervisor, who is also available to help in the event of requests for information, suggestions or complaints.

Reference to the right of objection

You have the right to object at any time, on grounds relating to your particular situation, to the processing of personal data concerning you; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions. The controller shall no longer process the personal data unless it can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override the interests, rights and freedoms of the data subject, or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.
If personal data are processed for the purposes of direct marketing, you have the right to object at any time to processing of personal data concerning you for such marketing; this also applies to profiling insofar as it is related to such direct marketing.
