Contacting FALK employees

Besides cookies, there is no way to transmit data through this website. Personal data is only collected if you provide it to us of your own accord, for example in the context of an inquiry. At present, this data would still be transmitted unencrypted. Therefore, the it could be possible for unauthorized third parties to read this data during transmission. However, it is possible to use alternative communication channels that are more secure than e-mail (e.g. telephone calls). You can find the e-mail addresses and telephone numbers of our contact persons here: http://www.falk-co.de/contact. We do not collect user profiles.

When you contact us, we will store information we receive from you to enable current and future conversations. This includes names, contact information and conversation history. This storage and further processing only takes place if it is necessary either for the fulfilment of a contract between FALK and you, for the execution of pre-contractual measures which take place at your request or for the protection of the legitimate interests of FALK in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. for GDPR. Your data would remain in Germany and will not be given to third parties: only FALK and IT service providers receive this data. If no legal retention obligation exists, this data will be regularly deleted within the next 12 months after termination of the contractual agreement between FALK and your company.
