Data Protection Provisions
The protection of your personal data is of great importance for Pioneer & Onkyo Europe GmbH. In the following we describe to you which personal data we collect, how we protect your data and how we use your data. Your data is of course only collected and processed within the framework of the statutory provisions, in particular the Federal Data Protection Act as well as the Telemedia Act. This declaration on data protection only applies for this website. Please note that it does not necessarily apply to websites to which we refer through links.
1. Data Collection
In general you can use the websites of Pioneer & Onkyo Europe GmbH without our collecting personal data from you. You do not have to inform us who you are. Personal data are only collected by us if you provide them to us of your own accord. This is for example the case if you direct a support enquiry to us, desire product information or direct other enquiries to us through the contact form.
Our websites use plugins of various companies (e.g. Facebook or Twitter). If you visit a website which contains such a plugin, your browser establishes a connection to the website to the respective company and the content is loaded by that company. This has the consequence that your visit on our websites can potentially be traced by such companies, in particular if you have an account with such company or you have already visited a site with such a plugin.
You will find more information on the collection of data through such plugins under the data protection notices of the particular companies. Concerning the setting of cookies as well as to avoid that cookies are set see the comments under Section 4.

Only if you have previously granted your express consent will we in addition use your data also for purposes of advertising and market research for Pioneer & Onkyo Europe GmbH. You can of course at any time revoke for the future your consent to the use of your data for advertising and marketing research purposes. We do not transfer your personal data to third parties. This only does not apply for service providers who are engaged by Pioneer & Onkyo Europe GmbH in order to process your enquiry.
The engaged service providers are contractually obligated to comply with data protection regulations in the same scope as ourselves.
You can of course request information about the personal data stored by us about you at any time. We will provide to you information in writing concerning these stored data without delay as far as possible. You have the possibility to correct the incorrect data at any time as well as to request the deletion of data as far as there are no conflicting statutory provisions.
