I. What functions do the SDB/Services offer?
1. Amongst others, the SDB/Services offer a single sign-on service. After one-off registration and authentication at Liebherr, it allows you to access all the restricted areas and content of the Liebherr offers connected to the single sign-on service (from the participating companies of the Liebherr Group and their authorised dealers or other third parties), by logging on with unified credentials and without having to go through a separate registration process again. The SDB/Services also offer the option of a centralised appliance registration that allows you, for example, to check the warranty period of registered Smart Devices at any time and to use other services that require the registration of Smart Devices without being required to provide further information.
2. After registering for the single sign-on service, the Liebherr SmartDevice mobile app allows you to use various functions in relation to your Smart Devices (for example, to control the temperature of your Liebherr refrigerator and freezer) via your mobile device.
3. In future, we intend making even further offers available to you on the SDB/Services and in the Liebherr SmartDevice mobile app. As soon as a further offer is added to the SDB/Services or in the Liebherr SmartDevice mobile app, we will of course inform you accordingly.
4. Liebherr SmartDevice App functions for Conrad Connect: Conrad Connect is a service of Conrad Connect GmbH that allows you to link the functions of the Liebherr SmartDevice app with various smart devices and apps supported by Conrad Connect.

In order to prevent misuse and misunderstandings, you need to activate your MyLiebherr user account after completing the registration process. In order to do so, we will send you an email with an activation link to the email address that you provided. Your MyLiebherr user account is activated by simply clicking the activation link in the email.
Subject to you having given us your express consent, we process your email address and the information that you voluntarily provided during registration for advertising and information purposes; specifically, to provide you with information about products and offers as well as other advertising information (for example, competitions and newsletters) via email. Your consent is not a precondition for creating a MyLiebherr user account. If you do not give your consent, we will not use your data for advertising and information purposes. You have the right to revoke your consent at any time with effect from the date of your revocation. The revocation of your consent will not affect the legality of the processing carried out on the basis of your consent until the revocation.

4. Your device data
The Liebherr SmartDevice mobile app requires access to certain functions and your Smart Device data for you to be able to use the Liebherr SmartDevice mobile app. In order to do so, you need grant certain permissions on your mobile device. The categories of permissions are defined differently by the manufacturers of the mobile device. On Android, for example, the individual permissions are grouped in permission categories and you can only agree to the permission category as a whole. We however only use the permissions authorised by you to the extent described below:
• Memory (photos/media/files)
The Liebherr SmartDevice mobile app needs to access the memory to save the required media content on your mobile device for the Liebherr SmartDevice mobile app to function.
• Information about the WLAN connection
The Liebherr SmartDevice mobile app needs to access the WLAN connection information of your device to connect the SDB to the Liebherr SmartDevice mobile app.

We process the data of the above-mentioned permissions to be able to provide you with the services and functions of the SDB/Services.
5. Machine data of your Smart Device and usage data of your Liebherr SmartDevice mobile app
a. In order to use the functions of the Liebherr SmartDevice mobile app, in particular the functions “Appliance control”, “Alarm message” and “Reminders”, the Liebherr SmartDevice mobile app needs to access the machine data of your Smart Device and the usage data of your Liebherr SmartDevice mobile app. The machine data consists of all the operating values and statuses of your Smart Device that are communicated, for example, by the temperature, speed, voltage and door-contact sensors. The usage data is all the data generated by the interaction with your Liebherr SmartDevice mobile app, such as the temperature and special settings, e.g. SuperFrost and SuperCool, that you made. The “Appliance control” function allows you to access the appliance status of your Smart Device (for example, the set temperature and the status of the special functions) via your Liebherr SmartDevice mobile app. The “Appliance control” function also allows you to control the temperature of your Smart Device and special functions, such as SuperFrost and SuperCool, via your Liebherr SmartDevice mobile app. The “Alarm message” function notifies you of critical temperatures, for example, in the event of a power failure or if the door of your Smart Device has been left open. The “Reminder” function sends you messages about events that you have predefined, for example, a reminder to replace the air filter.
b. We process the machine data and usage data in order to provide you with the functions of the SDB/Services (especially the functions “Appliance control”, “Alarm message” and “Reminder”).

Such disclosure will, however, only occur if we are under a legal obligation to provide the information.
Your Personal Information may be disclosed in situations where we are legally permitted to do so, such as in the course of employing reasonable and legal methods to enforce your rights or to investigate suspicion of unlawful activities.

VI. Use of SDB by children under the age of 13
Our website, the SDB/Services and the Smart Devices are aimed at the general audience and we do not generally seek to, nor do we knowingly collect, information from children under the age of 13.

VII. What Other Information (non-Personal Information) do we track?
1. Use of Google techniques
How can I prevent the storage of Google technology (cookies)?
If you do not want Liebherr USA, Co. to collect and analyse data about your visit, you can object to this at any time with future effect (so-called “Opt-Out”), even if you have previously consented.
For the technical implementation of this objection, an “Opt-Out cookie” will be set in your browser. This cookie is only used to signify your objection. Please note that for technical reasons “Opt-Out cookies” can only be used for the browser from which they are set. If you erase cookies or use another browser or device, you will need to opt out again.
You can install the “Opt-Out cookie” directly here. Alternatively, you can download and install the browser plug-in available under the following link
What is Google Analytics?
On behalf of Liebherr USA, Co., as the operator of the website, the MyLiebherr online portal and the MyLiebherr App, Google will use the above information to evaluate your use of the website, the MyLiebherr online portal and the MyLiebherr App to compile reports on activity and to provide Liebherr USA, Co. with other services related to usage and internet usage. These purposes also constitute our legitimate interest in data processing. The legal basis for the deployment of Google Analytics is Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR. The IP address provided by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with any other Google information. You can prevent the storage of cookies through the corresponding settings in your browser software; however, we would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all functions of the website, the MyLiebherr online portal and the MyLiebherr App in full.
2. Use of YouTube plugins
We use at least one plugin from YouTube, part of Google Inc., based in San Bruno/California, USA. If you visit our website, the SDB/Services or the Liebherr SmartDevice mobile app equipped with a YouTube plugin, a connection will be established with the YouTube servers. The YouTube server will be notified of the specific page on our website, the SDB/Services or the Liebherr SmartDevice mobile app that you have visited. Furthermore, if you were logged in to your YouTube account, you would enable YouTube to directly assign your surfing activity to your personal profile. You can prevent this assignment by logging out of your account before accessing our website, the SDB/Services or the Liebherr SmartDevice mobile app. Further information about the collection and use of your data by YouTube can be found in the data privacy information at www.youtube.com.

4. Incorporation of third-party services and content
Third-party content, such as maps from Google Maps, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites, may sometimes be incorporated into our website, the SDB/Services or the Liebherr SmartDevice mobile app. For this to be possible, the providers of such content (“third-party providers”) must be able to identify the user’s IP address. Without this, they are unable to send the content to the user’s browser. The IP address is therefore necessary to display this content. We endeavor to only use content from third-party providers who solely use the IP address to deliver the content. However, we have no influence on whether the third-party providers store IP addresses, e.g. for statistical purposes. If we are aware that this is occurring, we notify users.
VIII. How long and where is your information stored by us?
Your Personal Information is stored until the point at which the purposes outlined in this Policy have been achieved. This is generally the point at which you delete your user account and there is no legal justification for your Personal Information to be stored by us beyond that point.
Your Personal Information is stored on servers located in Germany and Ireland. If you are a resident of another country, you acknowledge and agree that your Personal Information may be processed, used, stored or accessed in Germany and Ireland and will be, as the case may be, subject to the laws of Germany and Ireland, and that the laws of Germany and Ireland may differ from the laws of the country in which you reside. If you are a resident of the European Union, please use the applicable European Union websites. This website is intended only for the residents of United States and Canada.

If, in good faith, you believe that someone has wrongly filed a notice of copyright infringement against you, the DMCA permits you to send to Liebherr a counter-notice.

Notices and counter-notices must be sent in writing to Liebherr USA, Co. as follows: By mail to Liebherr USA, Co., Division Refrigerators and Freezers, 15101 NW 112th Ave. Hialeah Gardens, FL 33018, USA; or by e-mail to Refrigeration.email@example.com.
