Collection and handling of personal data

When you visit our web pages, our web servers as standard store the IP-address assigned to you by your Internet service provider, the web page from which you visited us, the web pages which you visit on our site as well as the date and duration of the visit.

Personal data is stored only if you give us this of your own accord, e.g. as part of a registration, an enquiry, a tender or for the execution of a contract.

BRABUS uses your data, only to the extent necessary, for purposes relating to the technical administration of the web pages, for customer management, for product enquiries and for marketing.

Cookies

BRABUS uses cookies to track visitor preferences and to correspondingly design our website in the best possible way. Cookies are small files which are stored on your hard drive. This enables navigation to be simplified and gives a high degree of user-friendliness to a website.

Cookies also help us to identify particularly popular sections of our Internet presentation. We can therefore match the content of our web pages more closely to your needs and thus improve our presentation to you.

Cookies can be used to determine whether there has already been a communication between your computer and our site. The cookie on your computer is merely identified. Personal data can be stored in cookies if you give your agreement, e.g. to simplify a protected online access so that you do not have to enter your user ID and password again.

Of course, you can also visit our website without using cookies. Most browsers accept cookies automatically. You can prevent cookies from being stored on your hard drive by activating the "Do not accept cookies" setting in your browser.

Web analytics service

For this purpose the information about use generated by the cookie (including your compressed IP-address) is transmitted to our server and stored for purposes of analyse of use which helps us to optimize our website. In this process your IP-address is anonymised promptly so that you as user remain anonym. The information about your use of this website created by the cookie will not be divulged to third parties.

Use of Facebook Social Plugins

Our website uses social plugins (“plugins”) provided by the social network facebook.com, operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Avenue, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”). The plugins are identifiable by a Facebook logo (white letter f on blue background or a thumb up icon) or the notice “Facebook Social Plugin”. For a full list of all social Plugins please see https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/. When you visit a page of our website that contains a social plugin, your browser establishes a direct connection to Facebook servers. Facebook directly transfers the plugin content to your browser which embeds the latter into the website, enabling Facebook to receive information about your having accessed the respective page of our website. Thus we have no influence on the data gathered by the plugin and inform you according to our state of knowledge: The embedded plugins provide Facebook with the information that you have accessed the corresponding page of our website. If you are logged into Facebook, your visit can be assigned to your Facebook account. If you interact with the plugins, for example by clicking “Like”, or entering a comment, the corresponding information is transmitted from your browser directly to Facebook and stored by it. Even if you are not logged into Facebook, there is possibility that the plugins transmits your IP-address to Facebook. For the information on the purpose and scope of data collection and procession by Facebook, as well as your rights in this respect and settings options for protecting your privacy please visit Facebook’s privacy policy: https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/. If you are a Facebook member and do not want Facebook to connect the data concerning your visit to our website with your member data already stored by Facebook, please log off from Facebook and delete all Facebook related cookies in your browser before entering our website. Further you can block Facebook social Plugins by using add-ons for your browser, like the “Facebook Blocker”.

Information on predictive statements

Internet pages, Investor Relations releases, business and interim reports, outlooks, presentations, audio and video transmissions of events (live or as recordings) and other documents on this website contain amongst other things predictive statements on future developments which depend on the current assessments of the management.

Words such as "anticipate", "presume", "believe", "estimate", "expect", "intend", "can/could", "plan", "project", "should" and similar phrases indicate such predictive statements. Such statements are subject to certain risks and uncertainties.

Some examples of this are a cyclical downturn in Europe or North America, changes in rates of exchange, rates of interest, and raw material prices, the introduction of products by competitors, higher sales inducements, the successful introduction of the new business model for smart, interruptions to deliveries of production materials caused by bottlenecks, strikes by staff or supplier insolvency, as well as a fall in the resale price of used vehicles.

If one of these uncertainty factors or other unforeseen circumstances (some of these are described in the section "Risikobericht" in the current company report from BRABUS as well as in the section "Risk Factors" in the current company report from BRABUS in form 20-F, which has been filed with the U.S. Stock Exchange regulatory authority) occur or the assumptions on which the statements are based prove to be incorrect, the actual results could deviate significantly from those given or implied in these predictions.

We do not intend to, nor do we accept the responsibility for updating predictive statements ongoingly, as these are based exclusively on the circumstances on their day of publication.
