Nürburgring Betriebsgesellschaft mbH is delighted by your visit to our website and your interest in our company and our products and services.
Protecting your personal data used during the entire business process is a key issue for us and we want you to feel secure when visiting our web pages.
In the following, we will explain what information we at Nürburgring Betriebsgesellschaft mbH capture during your visit to our web pages and how that information will be used.
Personal data are individual pieces of information about the personal or substantive situation of a defined or definable natural person. This includes information such as, for example, your correct name, your address, your telephone number and your date of birth. Information that is not linked directly with your true identity – such as preferred web pages or the number of users of a page – is not considered personal data.
We use the personal data you make available exclusively for purposes of technical administration of the websites and to meet your wishes and needs, so as a rule to handle the contract concluded with you, to answer your enquiry or within the context of your participation in a prize draw.
Only if you have previously granted your consent, or – to the extent provided for by law – have failed to object, we also use these data for product-related surveys and marketing purposes, e.g. newsletter.
No forwarding, sale or other transmission of your personal data to third parties takes place unless doing same is necessary for the purposes of fulfilling the contract or where you have explicitly consented to it. It may, for example, be necessary in the event of orders for products for us to pass on your address and order data to our suppliers.
If rendering a service or responding to an enquiry requires us to transmit your personal data to an external service provider, we take technical and organisational measures to ensure that the legal provisions concerning data protection are adhered to. Nürburgring Betriebsgesellschaft mbH also obliges its external service providers to comply with the relevant provisions of data protection law, to treat personal data confidentially and to delete them as soon as they are no longer needed.
Since the protection of the private sphere of children is of major importance, we would prefer not to gather, process or use personal data of persons under 16 years of age. Should you as their legal guardian learn that your children have sent their personal data to us, you can get in touch with us via the addresses given in the imprint if you want those data to be deleted.

This website uses plugins provided by the social networking site facebook.com, which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”).
If you call up a page containing a plugin of this nature from our website, a direct link is established between your browser and Facebook’s servers and the plugin will be shown on the website by a message sent to your browser. This sends information to the Facebook server about which of our Internet pages you have visited. If you are logged in to Facebook as a member thereby, Facebook will assign that information to your personal Facebook user account. If you use the plugin functions (e.g. by clicking on “Like” or entering a comment), that information will also be assigned to your Facebook account, which you can only prevent by logging out before using the plugin.
For more information on the gathering and use of data by Facebook and about your rights in this respect to protect your private sphere, please refer to Facebook’s data protection information.

Personal information extending beyond that, such as your name, your address, telephone number or e-mail address will not be captured unless you give that information voluntarily, e.g. within the context of registration, a survey, a prize draw, for the purposes of fulfilling a contract or a request for information.
