This allows us to fulfill our obligations to you regarding the provision of service, consulting and support for the purpose of establishing, executing and terminating a contractual obligation, provided that you have granted us consent to do so.

When you visit our web pages, our web servers always temporarily save for security purposes the connection data of the computer connecting to our site, a list of the web pages that you visit within our site, the date and duration of your visit, the identification data of the type of browser and operating system used as well as the website through which you linked to our site. Additional personal information is not collected unless you provide this data voluntarily, e.g. as part of a registration, survey, competition, fulfilment of contract or an information request via a contact form.

2Utilization and passing on of personal data

We use the personal data which you have made available to us exclusively for technical administration of the web pages and to meet your wishes and requests – thus primarily for fulfilment of a contract concluded with you or to answer your queries. LIMO does not share or otherwise disseminate your personal data to third parties unless this is required for the purpose of the contract or unless you have given express consent to do so. For instance, it may be necessary to pass on your address and order data to our contractors when you order products.

3Use of cookies

The internet pages make use of “cookies”, i.e. short text files that are stored on your computer and which are saved by your browser. These do not damage your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies help us to determine how frequently our internet pages are accessed as well as the number of users. They also help us design our offers so that they are as user-friendly and secure as possible for you.

On the one hand, we use so-called “session cookies”, which are automatically deleted after you leave our website. On the other, we use “permanent cookies” to retain information about visitors who repeatedly access one of our internet pages. The purpose of these cookies is to be able to offer you an optimal user guidance as well as to recognize your browser at the next visit. The content of a permanent cookie is limited to an identification number. Your name and IP address, etc. are not saved. We do not create an individual profile of your online activities. “Permanent cookies” are stored on your end device until you delete them.

You can set your browser to ask you each time whether to accept a cookie, to accept cookies only for certain websites or to always reject cookies as well as automatically delete any cookies when your browser is closed. However, deactivating the use of cookies may limit the functionality of this website.

6Inclusion of third-party services and contents

Without an address it is impossible to send such contents to the browser of the respective user.
