Collection, processing and use of personal data
Personal data means any information, which relates to your person or from which your identity could be traced (reference to a particular individual). These include information, such as your name, address, postal address or your telephone number. Information, which cannot be linked to your identity are not included in this category.
The prohibition on processing personal data unless authorised always applies. This means that NFON UK Ltd. is permitted to process personal data only when this is expressly permitted by law.
We process your personal data solely for the purposes of technical provision of this site, for purposes of analysis of user behaviour or to connect to social media. Any other type of processing whatsoever shall be advertised to you prior to processing and we will have to obtain your consent to it.
The processing therefore relies on the following legal principles: Article 6 (1) points (a), (b) and (f) GDPR.
Based on Article 6(1)(f), your personal data will further be processed to send newsletters. These are only sent without your consent if this serves the purpose of contract negotiations or direct advertising permitted by law. In weighing interests it is assumed you wish to always be informed of news related to current or new products, e.g. changes to devices, and that doing so does not affect your rights and freedoms.
The http Protocol is used by the servers to collect the following data:
|Datum||Period of storage|
|browser type and version||14 Monate|
|operating system used||14 Monate|
|Referrer URL||14 Monate|
|IP address||60 days|
|date and time of enquiry||14 Monate|
Any other processing whatsoever of personal data is advertised prior to processing or can be traced by you, because you entered the data yourself. For this purpose storage periods are determined based on the process and implemented in compliance with all the legal obligations.
In the chapter entitled, "Cookies" we give you an explicit explanation of which personal data or data, from which your identity could be inferred, are processed and for how long the cookies installed are stored.
For this purpose we transfer your processed data to the following recipients:
|Category||Purpose||Transfer to a third country|

|supplier of analysis tools||usage analysis||yes, USA|
|advertising agency||development, design and marketing||no|
|social media||Marketing||yes, USA|
|CRM Tool||Marketing, Newsletter||no|
If your personal data are transferred to recipients other than those specified, you will be notified thereof and we have to obtain your consent. When data are transferred to a third country, in which accordingly, the level of data protection is less stringent, the processing of data pursuant to national laws cannot be ensured.
