Data protection and security
We appreciate your trust, which is why we use extreme care and apply the highest standards of security to protect your personal details against unauthorized access. Your order, your personal detail and the information you provide about payment processing are protected by technical systems and additional authorization procedures. This is the case both during data transfer and storage on our servers.
Use of your data
During data processing, your concerns with regard to data protection are taken into account at all times in accordance with the legal provisions. We process your personal details for order processing and to maintain our customer relationships. Usage also entails the use of your address data for advertising purposes that are carried out solely by Heckler & Koch GmbH.
You may oppose the use and/or processing of your data for marketing purposes at any time by writing a brief letter to:
Heckler & Koch GmbH
Heckler & Koch-Strasse 1
78727 Oberndorf a. N. / Germany
by e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Our technical standards
During data transfer, we use the so-called SSL (Secure Socket Layer) security system in combination with a 128-bit encryption. This technology offers maximum security and is therefore also used, for instance, by banks as data protection during online banking. You can see whether data are being transmitted in an encrypted manner in the locked depiction of a key and/or lock symbol in the bottom status bar of your browser.
Security during payment transactions
All types of payment are comprehensively protected by the above-mentioned security standards.
Authorization, modification and deletion of your personal data
You may view, edit and delete your personal details at any time in the section 'My HK', using your e-mail address and password. If at any time you have forgotten your password, we offer you a special service. In the section ‘My HK’, you will find the link 'Forgotten password’ on the log-in page and this link leads you to a form which you need to complete and send to us, indicating the e-mail address known to us. We will send you a replacement password to your e-mail address. This is also free of risk if a third party should attempt to access your data because it perhaps knows your e-mail address. Because in all cases the password is sent to your e-mail address which only you have access to.
Please note: You should not give your password to third parties and use SSL encryption during the order process whenever we offer it.
