C&K 隐私政策

Last Updated: December 21, 2020

Thank you for showing interest in C&K COMPONENTS LLC and its operating divisions and subsidiaries (Collectively “C&K Components,” “controller,” “we,” “us,” or “our”). Data protection is of a particularly high priority for the management of C&K COMPONENTS. In addition to our website located at https://www.ckswitches.com/, there are other means by which a data subject may provide personal data to C&K COMPONENTS such as a telephone call, e-mail exchanges or trade show participation. By means of this Privacy Policy, our organization would like to inform the general public of the nature, scope, and purpose of the personal data we collect, use, disclose, and otherwise process where this Privacy Policy appears or is referenced. Furthermore, data subjects are informed, by means of this Privacy Policy, of the rights to which they are entitled.

If you are a resident of the state of California, USA, please see Section 14 below for additional information provided pursuant to the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018, including disclosures about the categories of personal information we collect, how we collect such information, the purpose for collecting such information, the categories of third parties with whom we share such information, and additional rights that may be available to you as a resident of California, including requesting we not sell your personal information by clicking Do Not Sell My Personal Information.

As the controller, C&K COMPONENTS has implemented numerous technical and organizational measures designed to ensure the protection of personal data processed through this website. However, Internet-based data transmissions may in principle have security gaps, so absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, every data subject is free to transfer personal data to us via alternative means, e.g. by telephone, e-mail or text.

1. Definitions

a) Personal data

An identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.

b) Data subject

Data subject is any identified or identifiable natural person, whose personal data is processed by or on behalf of the controller responsible for the processing. Data subject, for purposes of this Privacy Policy, is you.

f) Pseudonymisation

Pseudonymisation is the processing of personal data in such a manner that the personal data can no longer be attributed to a specific data subject without the use of additional information, provided that such additional information is kept separately and is subject to technical and organizational measures to ensure that the personal data are not attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.

g) Controller or controller responsible for the processing

Controller or controller responsible for the processing is the natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which, alone or jointly with others, determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data; where the purposes and means of such processing are determined by Union or Member State law, the controller or the specific criteria for its nomination may be provided for by Union or Member State law.

However, public authorities which may receive personal data in the framework of a particular inquiry in accordance with Union or Member State law shall not be regarded as recipients; the processing of those data by those public authorities shall be in compliance with the applicable data protection rules according to the purposes of the processing.

j) Third party

Third party is a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or body other than the data subject, controller, processor and persons who, under the direct authority of the controller or processor, are authorized to process personal data.

4. Cookies

The website operated by C&K COMPONENTS uses cookies. Cookies are text files that are stored in a computer system via an Internet browser.

Many Internet sites and servers use cookies. Many cookies contain a so-called cookie ID. A cookie ID is a unique identifier of the cookie. It consists of a character string through which Internet pages and servers can be assigned to the specific Internet browser in which the cookie was stored. This allows visited Internet sites and servers to differentiate the individual browser of the data subject from other Internet browsers that contain other cookies. A specific Internet browser can be recognized and identified using the unique cookie ID.

Through the use of cookies, C&K COMPONENTS is able to provide users of this website with more user-friendly services that would not be possible without the cookie setting.

By means of a cookie, the information and offers on our website can be optimized with the user in mind. Cookies allow us, as previously mentioned, to recognize our website users. The purpose of this recognition is to make it easier for users to utilize our website. The website user that uses cookies, e.g. does not have to enter access data each time the website is accessed, because this is taken over by the website, and the cookie is thus stored on the user's computer system.

The data subject may, at any time, manage, reject or delete the cookies used on our website through the browser settings. This is possible in all popular Internet browsers. If the data subject deactivates the setting of cookies in the Internet browser used, not all functions of our website may be entirely usable.

See Section 14 below to learn more about your choices with respect to cookies used for interest-based advertising.

5. Collection of general data and information

The website of C&K COMPONENTS collects a series of general data and information when a data subject or automated system calls up the website. This general data and information are stored in the server log files. The types of information collected may include: (1) the browser types and versions used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the website from which an accessing system reaches our website (so-called referrers), (4) the sub-websites, (5) the date and time of access to the Internet site, (6) an Internet protocol address (IP address), (7) the Internet service provider of the accessing system, and (8) any other similar data and information that may be used in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.

This information may be used to (1) deliver the content of our website correctly, (2) optimize the content of our website as well as its advertisement, (3) ensure the long-term viability of our information technology systems and website technology, and (4) in accordance with applicable law, provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for criminal prosecution in case of a cyber-attack. C&K COMPONENTS analyzes anonymously collected data and information statistically, with the aim of increasing the data protection and data security of our enterprise, and to enable an optimal level of protection for the personal data we process. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by a data subject.

6. Registration on our website

C&K COMPONENTS may collect a data subject’s name, address, e-mail, phone number, company URL and job title when the data subject creates/registers an account on the website. The personal data provided by the data subject are collected and stored exclusively for internal use by the controller, and for the data subject’s own purposes. The controller may also share this information with one or more of its processors within or outside of the EU (e.g. a parcel service) that also uses personal data for an internal purpose which is attributable to the controller.

By creating/registering an account on the website, C&K COMPONENTS may also collect the IP address—assigned by the Internet service provider (ISP) and used by the data subject—date, and time of the registration. C&K COMPONENTS uses this data to help prevent the misuse of our services, and, if necessary, to make investigation into any committed offenses possible. The creation/registration of an account, with the data subject’s voluntary provision of personal data, is intended to enable the controller to offer the data subject contents or services that may only be offered to registered users due to the nature of the matter in question. Registered persons are free to change the personal data specified during the registration at any time, or to request deletion of the data by the controller, subject to certain exceptions described below.

The controller shall provide information upon verifiable request to each data subject as to what personal data are stored about the data subject. In addition, where required by applicable law, the controller shall correct or erase personal data at the request or indication of the data subject, insofar as there are no statutory storage obligations or other exceptions permitted by applicable law. A Data Protection Officer particularly designated in this Privacy Policy, as well as the entirety of the controller, are available to the data subject in this respect as contact persons.

7. Subscription to our Web Site

C&K COMPONENTS may collect a data subject’s name, e-mail, phone number, city, state and zip code, country and company when the data subject registers an account with and/or subscribes to our “Channel Partner” or Communities.

C&K COMPONENTS informs its users and partners regularly by means of a newsletter about our activities. The enterprise's newsletter may only be received by the data subject if (1) the data subject has a valid e-mail address and (2) the data subject registers for the newsletter shipping. A confirmation e-mail will be sent to the e-mail address registered by a data subject during the Channel Partner registering process, for legal reasons, in the double opt-in procedure. In the confirmation e-mail, the owner of the e-mail address may choose to cancel or modify their subscription. This opportunity is also offered to subscribers of our Channel Partner.

During the registration to “Channel Partner” or Communities, we also store the IP address of the computer system assigned by the Internet service provider (ISP) and used by the data subject at the time of the registration, as well as the date and time of the registration. The collection of this data helps us understand the (possible) misuse of the e-mail address of a data subject at a later date, and it therefore serves the aim of the legal protection of the controller.

The personal data collected as part of a registration to Channel Partner or Communities is used to send our newsletter, notifications about our products and in the case of a request for special pricing. In addition, subscribers to Channel Partner or Communities may be informed by e-mail in the event of modifications to Channel Partners’ or Communities’ offers, or in the event of a change in technical circumstances. The subscription to our Channel Partner or Communities may be terminated by the data subject at any time. The consent to the storage of personal data, which the data subject has given to register an account with a Channel Partner or Communities, may be revoked at any time, subject to any exceptions allowed under applicable law. For the purpose of revocation of consent, a corresponding link can be found in all relevant communications (newsletters or notifications). It is also possible to unsubscribe from Channel Partner or Communities at any time directly on the website of the controller, or to communicate this to the controller in a different way.

8. Newsletter-Tracking PARDOT mailing

The newsletters of C&K COMPONENTS contains so-called tracking pixels. A tracking pixel is a miniature graphic embedded in such newsletters, which are sent in HTML format to enable log file recording and analysis. Tracking pixels allow a statistical analysis of the success or failure of online marketing campaigns. Based on the embedded tracking pixel, C&K COMPONENTS may see if and when an e-mail was opened by a data subject, and which links in the e-mail were called up by data subjects.

Such personal data collected in the tracking pixels contained in the newsletters are stored and analyzed by the controller in order to optimize the content and circulation of the newsletter, as well as to improve and personalize the content of future newsletters. Data subjects are at any time entitled to revoke the respective separate declaration of consent issued by means of the opt-in procedure. C&K COMPONENTS automatically regards a withdrawal from the receipt of the newsletter as a revocation.

9.?Applying for a job via the website

C&K COMPONENTS may collect a data subject’s name, address, e-mail, phone number, employment and professional-related information and educational information when the data subject applies for a job with us via our Careers webpage or e-mail. The information collected is processed for employment purposes, including hiring. If C&K COMPONENTS concludes an employment contract with an applicant, the submitted data will be stored for the purpose of processing the employment relationship in compliance with legal requirements.

10. Contact possibility via the website

C&K COMPONENTS may collect a data subject’s name, business e-mail, job title, company, phone number, region, country, how many switches the data subject has, how we can help and any other information the data subject may provide to us when he or she contacts us via our Contact Sales webpage. . If a data subject contacts the controller by e-mail or via the Contact Sales webpage, the personal data provided by the data subject are automatically stored. Such personal data transmitted on a voluntary basis by a data subject to the controller are stored for the purpose of responding to the data subject’s questions or requests or contacting the data subject.

11. Subscription to comments in the blog on the website

A data subject may subscribe to comments in the blog of C&K COMPONENTS following a comment another data subject may post on a particular blog post.

If a data subject decides to subscribe to comments, the controller will send an automatic confirmation e-mail to determine whether the owner of the specified e-mail address decided in favor of this option as a part of the double opt in procedure. The option to subscribe to comments may be terminated at any time.

12. Routine erasure and blocking of personal data

The controller shall process and store the personal data of the data subject only for the period necessary to achieve the purpose of storage, or as far as this is granted by the European legislator or other legislators in laws or regulations to which the controller is subject. The data subject for Channel Partner is unsubscribed after 6 months of inactivity.

Our Data Protection Officer or another one of our employees shall promptly ensure that the erasure request is complied with as soon as practicable.

Our Data Protection Officer or another one of our employees will arrange the restriction of the processing.
