3. Establishment of contact and data collection
3.1. Customer service and data maintenance

ALPINA Burkard Bovensiepen GmbH + Co. KG (hereinafter referred to as ALPINA) tries to make it as easy as possible for the customer to contact us in order to be able to respond to any requests as quickly as possible. For this reason it is possible to establish contact with ALPINA at different points. These include the ALPINA contact form of the website (see 3.2), the ALPINA landing pages (item 3.3), the ALPINA Car Configurator, and the ALPINA Car Search for used and new vehicles (see 3.4). Regardless of the contact possibilities already mentioned, it is possible for the customer to grant ALPINA consent with regard to customer service (see item 5).

All requests of this type are queried using the double opt-in procedure. All requests can only be processed if an e-mail automatically generated by ALPINA is confirmed by the recipient of the request. It is therefore necessary for the recipient to provide a correct e-mail address in order to confirm his identity. If the e-mail is not confirmed, no data is being stored or processed. The request procedure is aborted and deleted.

It is also possible to establish contact via the ALPINA online shop (see 3.5) and via ALPINA corporate presences on various social platforms (see 3.6). It is not possible at this point to grant consent regarding customer service beyond the request made, so that only the respective request can be processed. 

3.2. ALPINA contact form
The website contact form can be used to send customer requests directly to an expert department of ALPINA Burkard Bovensiepen GmbH + Co. KG. This process requires the customer name, a valid e-mail address, a categorization of the request and a description of the request. The request will only be forwarded if the customer confirms the confirmation e-mail sent in response (see item 3.1 for the so-called double opt-in procedure). 

If the customer requires customer service that goes beyond the request, the customer can grant consent to customer service (see item 5). The declaration of consent is not necessary to process the request.

3.3. ALPINA landing pages
During the launch of a new BMW ALPINA model, a special micro site will by offered by ALPINA on the Internet (so-called ALPINA landing pages), which allows the customer direct contact to ALPINA regarding the model. Besides a detailed product description and presentation, a contact form is offered on the ALPINA landing page. Moreover, the customer can request information about the product sent to him by post. The name, address and e-mail address are required for processing the request. Moreover, the confirmation e-mail must be confirmed (see item 3.1 for the so-called double opt-in procedure). If it is not confirmed, no data will be stored and the procedure cannot be completed. 

In addition, a voluntary declaration of consent can be granted if the customer requires customer service that goes beyond the request (see item 5). The declaration of consent is not necessary to process the request.
Furthermore, the data can be viewed by responsible service providers for the technical implementation and support of the micro sites (see item 6).

3.4. ALPINA Car Configurator and ALPINA Car Search for used and new vehicles
Using the ALPINA Car Configurator it is possible to request offers for new ALPINA vehicles. Using the ALPINA Car Search it is possible to request offers for warehouse vehicles of ALPINA or a dealer. An enquiry via the ALPINA Car Configurator or the ALPINA Car Search is sent directly to the respective ALPINA sales partner of the BMW dealer organisation and a copy of the enquiry to ALPINA Burkard Bovensiepen GmbH + Co. KG. These processes require the customer name, a valid e-mail address and the customer’s address. The request will only be forwarded if the customer confirms the confirmation e-mail sent in response (see item 3.1 for the so-called double opt-in procedure). If it is not confirmed, no data will be stored by ALPINA.

If the customer requires customer service that goes beyond the request, the customer can grant consent to customer service (see item 5). The declaration of consent is not necessary to process the request. If the customer grants consent, the request will be passed on to ALPINA Burkard Bovensiepen GmbH + Co KG as well as to the respective trade organisation.

3.5. ALPINA online shop
ALPINA sells its own lifestyle articles and accessories through the ALPINA online shop. The online shop is based on the e-commerce system of Shopware AG and is managed by the service providers listed in item 6 in addition to ALPINA. 

In the online shop the articles can be selected and an order can be initiated. The order is sent directly to the respective expert department and processed there. An order requires the name, an e-mail address, the invoicing address and the shipping address. This data is collected in order to carry out the order process. In addition, a customer account can be created in the ALPINA online shop. The customer can thus store, view and if necessary change the data provided.
https://shop.alpina-automobiles.com/account

The data is stored in the ALPINA customer database and in the online shop system. Consent for further customer service cannot be given here. All data is only stored within the ALPINA online shop. Information on storage period, right to access and deletion can be found in items 8 and 9. However, a customer account is not necessary to carry out an order process. In the case of a single order, customer data will only be stored in the ALPINA customer database in accordance with legal requirements and will not be used for further customer measures. Currently only prepayment is offered as payment method, so that no bank details are stored.

4.2. Google Analytics
Google Analytics is a web analysis service of Google LLC (“Google”) for the statistical evaluation of website use. The information is evaluated by ALPINA with date and time for internal statistical purposes with regard to advertising measures, website use and website optimisation. All analysed information is limited to the ALPINA websites and their use. Apart from ALPINA, service providers have access to the results (see item 6). The user’s behaviour is evaluated anonymised. Tracing back to personal data is not possible for ALPINA and its service providers. Pseudonymous user profiles are not created. Please find the terms of use for Google Analytics in the following link:
https://www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html

Google Analytics uses a so-called tracking code, which is embedded in the HTML code of the individual pages of our websites. The information generated by the tracking code about your use of the websites is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there.  In case of activation of the IP anonymisation, Google will truncate/anonymise the last octet of the IP address for Member States of the European Union as well as for other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases, the full IP address is transmitted to a server in the USA and truncated there. On behalf of the website provider Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage to ALPINA. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. If an analysis of user behaviour and the use of Google Analytics is not desired, a browser plug-in which prevents the analysis and processing can be downloaded and installed under the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.

In addition or as an alternative to the browser add-on, you can prevent tracking by Google Analytics on our pages by clicking on this LINK. An opt-out cookie is installed on your device. This will prevent Google Analytics from collecting data for this website and this browser in future as long as the cookie remains installed in your browser.

Should you wish to obtain information about the data stored by Google, you can find out about this under the following link. These data are stored separately from any Google Analytics data and can neither be viewed nor used in any form by ALPINA and its service providers.
