Thank you for visiting the website of Linde Malaysia, and for your interest in our company and our products.
We take the protection of your personal data seriously and rely on mutual cooperation. The protection of your personal data is of the utmost importance to us. We comply with all statutory provisions for data protection and, particularly, the Personal Data Protection Act 2010 of Malaysia as well as the guidelines developed thereunder. Our employees are obliged to treat all information confidentially and we provide training in the areas of data protection and data security to them.
In the sections below, we briefly explain how we protect your personal data and what it means for you when you make use of our online offering.
When our internet pages are called up, Linde Malaysia receives access data that is stored for protective purposes and aids in identification.
This data includes:
§ the name of your internet service provider;
§ the country from which you are accessing our website;
§ the website that has directed you to our internet presence;
§ the search term you use, if you come to our website via a search engine;
§ the websites of Linde Malaysia or of The Linde Group that you visit;
§ the user tool (web browser, operating system) you use to access our website;
§ the files that you download from our website (e.g. PDF or Word documents);
§ the duration of your visit; and
§ the date and time of your visit.
This data is analysed primarily by Linde Malaysia so that we can familiarise ourselves with and evaluate user behaviour. We do not make use of personal data in the process.
Personal data is information that is used explicitly to determine your identity. It includes information such as your name and your postal or e-mail address.
The only time we save personal data in addition to your access data is if you give us this information voluntarily, e.g. as part of a registration, a survey, a prize competition, a contact inquiry, registration for a newsletter or to process an online order.
Moreover, personal data is used only to the extent necessary and only for the legally permissible purpose for which you gave your consent.
The Linde Group, of which Linde Malaysia is a part, employs encryption procedures in secure areas to ensure that communication between your browser and Linde’s order system, for example, cannot be read by others on the internet.
All data is stored exclusively on servers of Linde AG in Germany, and such data is accorded a level of protection that is adequate and at least equivalent to that under the Personal Data Protection Act 2010 of Malaysia. By using our order system, you consent to the storage and use of your data by Linde Malaysia and other affiliated companies.
Sensitive Personal Data
It is unlikely that Linde Malaysia will collect any sensitive personal data about an individual. If, however, any sensitive personal data is required, Linde Malaysia will collect and use this in accordance with all applicable laws.
Passing on personal data to third parties
Linde Malaysia renders some of its services together with select partners. These partners are subject to the same strict statutory provisions for data protection as Linde Malaysia and are integrated into its data protection concept.
Personal data is only passed on:
§ when processing order-related data, such as for online orders; and
§ in individual cases, provided you have given your prior consent.
Additional information – such as voluntary statements about your primary areas of interest – is not passed on to third parties by Linde Malaysia.
Personal data is conveyed to state institutions and authorities only within the scope of statutory or judicial obligations. When required by law, Linde Malaysia will release personal data to the relevant authorities upon proper application.
Power of revocation
If you request in writing that Linde Malaysia or the representative responsible for you amend, cease from using or delete your personal data, we shall do so immediately.
If you are registered as a customer of Linde Malaysia, you may request to view the data and delete or change such data as necessary.
