Data protection

IHLE has implemented the required measures to ensure the protection, security and integrity of your personal data. Access to personal data is limited to those employees and service providers who have been trained and made aware concerning compliance with the confidentiality of the data.

On the commercial Internet pages of IHLE, bank information can be recorded for the purpose of effective, legally-secure payment processes. These measures can exist from an SSL encryption (so that the data is illegible for third parties) in case of the recording or conveyance of confidential data. This information is used only for online payments and is not stored.

IHLE guarantees that your personal data is not changed or damaged and that unauthorised third parties cannot have access to it.

International transfer of personal data

IHLE is a globally active company. IHLE can send your personal data to one of its databases within the Michelin Group in the European Union or to its external partners outside of your native country.

Since the scope of data protection varies worldwide, we do not send your personal data to group companies of the Michelin Group or to third party companies outside of the European Union unless these companies offer a similar or equivalent protection level for personal data. In case of transfers within the Michelin Group, the Group refers to internal directives related to the transfer of personal data to countries outside of the European Union (EU) or the European Economic Region. As a result of clicking on the BCR's ("Binding Corporate Rules"), please find details relating to these specifications.

Transfers of data to suppliers outside of the Michelin Group are controlled by contracts which include the standard contract clauses of the European Commission, in order to guarantee a similar protection level as in your native country.

Personal data of minors is not recorded knowingly without explicitly pointing out that such data may be sent only with the approval of parents. If you should be a minor, we request that you send personal information only with permission from your parents.
