Some of the information is automatically collected and will not personally identify you but instead track your use of the websites. This may include your device’s unique identifying code or its IP address as well as statistics about how you use the websites. When you visit Gamesa Gearbox websites, information is stored on your terminal device in the form of a "cookie." Cookies are small files that are stored on your terminal device and save certain settings and data to exchange with our websites via your browser.
For example, cookies enable us to tailor a website to better match your interests or to store your password so that you do not have to re-enter it every time. As a general rule, we never collect personal data via cookies, unless you have given us your express permission to do so.
If you do not want us to recognize your terminal device, please configure your Internet browser to erase all cookies from your device, to block all cookies or to receive a warning before a cookie is stored.

Cookies can be assigned to four categories, depending on their function and intended purpose: absolutely necessary cookies, performance cookies, functional cookies, and cookies for marketing purposes.
Absolutely necessary cookies: are needed for you to navigate within Gamesa Gearbox websites and operate basic website functions, such as the issuance of anonymous Session IDs for bundling several related queries to a server.
Performance cookies: collect information on the usage of our websites, including for example the Internet browsers and operating systems used, the domain name of the website which you previously visited, the number of visits, average duration of visit, and pages called up.
These cookies do not store any information that would make it possible to personally identify the user. The information collected with the aid of these cookies is aggregated and is therefore anonymous. Performance cookies serve the purpose of improving the user friendliness of a website and therefore enhancing the user’s experience. You can block the use of such cookies by creating an exclusion cookie (see “managing cookies” below).
Functional cookies: enable a website to store information the user has already entered (such as user ID, language selection, or the user’s location), in order to offer improved, personalized functions to the user. Functional cookies are also used to enable requested functions such as playing videos and to make a user’s decision to block or disable a certain function (e.g. web analysis) persistent (“opt-out cookies”).
Managing cookies: please note that not all of the cookies mentioned below will necessarily be used when you browse our website using a mobile terminal device.
Performance cookies: Zoho Sales IQ and Google Analytics
We use Zoho Sales IQ and Google Analytics on our website for the purpose of constantly improving the website and/or detecting errors. For this purpose, Zoho Sales IQ and Google Analytics anonymously stores and analyzes various kinds of data, including the visited website and the website’s metadata, websites that link to Gamesa Gearbox, the time of the visit, and the browser used.
Gamesa Energy Transmissions S.L (“Gamesa Gearbox”) – with registered office at Parque Tecnológico de Bizkaia, Edificio 222, 48170, Zamudio, Vizcaya (Spain) - takes data protection seriously. As part of this effort, we ensure that our websites are in compliance with the applicable laws on data privacy and security.
Access to our website is logged for the purpose of security analysis reports and to defend against cyber-attacks. When only visiting and browsing the website no personal data – other than the IP address – is collected. IP addresses are analyzed only in the event of a cyber-attack. Log data is promptly deleted on a regular basis.
In some cases, personal data (such as name, addresses, telephone numbers or e-mail addresses) are collected, but only when you proactively give out such data to us. When we collect such data, for instance through registration, contact inquiries, surveys, etc., we only use it for the purpose for which it was collected and nothing more. For example, if your data was collected via inquiries, then your data will only be used to answer your query. If it was through registration on our websites, then it would be used to grant you access to certain areas insight our website or provide specific information.
Also, from time to time we may collect personal information about individuals who are not customers. This is usually where Gamesa Gearbox collects the name and business contact details of a person who is the contact in a government agency or company we are dealing with.
Generally, Gamesa Gearbox will only use personal information for the primary purpose for which is collected. Our aim is to be upfront with you about how we use your personal information so that you can make decisions about your dealings with us.
The potential uses of the personal information which is collected (and for which you consent to us using your personal information for) may include:
As part of our effort to protect your data, we may only share your personal data with our subsidiaries when necessary and after your consent is given, or when we are legally entitled to do so. We only share your personal data with our subsidiaries in third countries that have adopted and implemented our Binding Corporate Rules (BCR) for the protection of personal data.
For the operation of our websites, we work with service providers such as hosting services or IT maintenance service providers. In such cases, there are safeguards put in place to make certain that your personal data is protected according to the regulations of the European Union. For recipients located in countries outside the European Economic Area (“third countries”), there is a possibility that the applicable laws on data protection do not offer the same level of protection as in the European Economic Area (EEA). Where this is true, Gamesa Gearbox takes the necessary steps to ensure that an appropriate level of protection of personal data exists, such as European Model Clauses.
Data is shared only in connection with and in compliance with applicable laws and regulations. We do not sell or otherwise market your personal data to third parties.
In case you wish to access, rectify or delete any personal data that you have provided to us, please click on “Contact” to send your request. We will respond to all legitimate requests for information and where applicable, to correct, amend, or delete your personal data.

Users who understand that their data protection rights have been violated or users who have any complaints regarding their personal information, they may contact Gamesa Gearbox Data Protection Officer. In any event, data subjects may always lodge a complaint before the competent data protection authority in accordance with the applicable legislation.
