Data Protection

Data privacy statement for the BHTC Internet

The BHTC (Behr Hella Thermocontrol GmbH) takes protection of personal data very seriously. Protection of your privacy during the processing of personal data is a very important issue for us. The BHTC group processes personal data, which is collected during visiting our web pages, exclusively in accordance with the legal requirements. It is important to us that you should know every time, when and which data we store and how we use this data (transparency principle). Hence, in the following, we would like to explain to you briefly, how the BHTC group processes your information and what the meaning of this process is during the usage of our services.

Personal data

Personal information is single specifications over natural entities, who allow one to interfere in his personal, economical or actual affairs. It also includes for example address- and availability data. Information which is not associated directly with your real identity (e.g.  attendance of favored websites or the number of users of a site) does not affect this.

All columns contained in the publicly accessible range of our internet side can be usually visited.  A User authentication is not necessary for this. Only if you register for one of our personalized services, we will ask you for your name and other personal information. In contrast the provision of such services is not possible. Information entry is optional but required for the registration. All of your personal data mentioned by you will be handled in accordance with the applicable data protection laws. The data is processed exclusively for the specific purpose. Any disclosure to third party does not happen. Exceptions come when the disclosure of the data is required for processing your requests.


We use an automatic statistical evaluation tool, which is used to measure and analyze total visits to our website for marketing and optimization purposes. We use your IP address for the intention to collect technical data, including the internet traffic via the browser and computer you are using. This anonymous data is stored separately from personal information on secure internal systems and therefore cannot be traced to an individual person. From this data, user profiles can be created under a pseudonym. For this cookies can  be used (see below). These surveys are considered for the optimal adaptation of our website to the needs of our users and for marketing purposes. The collected data will not be used without the explicit consent of the concerned person to identify the visitors to this website and will not be merged with personal data by the bearer of the pseudonym. A linkage or a utilization of linked personal information with anonymous data does not take place. The data collection and storage can be revoked at any time with the future effect.

Use of Cookies

Our site uses cookies. Cookies are small text files that are sent from the web server to your PC and are usually stored on your hard drive. These are not those programs that enter the user's system and cause damage. Although cookies can identify your computer, no personal data is stored by cookies themselves. When you visit our website again, the cookie shows that it is a repeat visit. You can configure your browser in that kind that the acceptance of cookies will be denied or you will be informed if a cookie is stored. For more information, refer the manual of your internet browser.

Withdrawal of consent

Furthermore, you can revoke your consent for the collection, processing and use of your personal data at any time with effect for the future. If you give us personal information (e. g. as when registering for a Supplier Portal), you will always have the option to simply delete them again. Please send us an e-mail to or contact us by telephone. After confirmation all your data will be deleted for this service irrevocably.

Links to the other websites

The BHTC Group is not liable for contents of other internet services providers which can be accessed by hyperlinks. On the connected external pages, it is exclusively about third party contents, for which we assume no liability and whose contents we do not adopt as our own. Although these contents were verified for legal and moral standards before linking, however, it is not ruled out that contents were changed later on by the respective providers. The BHTC Group has no obligation to check the linked pages constantly for changes. However, if you notice violations of law or other inappropriate content on linked pages, we request you to inform us accordingly. We also repel ourselves from illegal and immoral internet content.
