By using the Rexel 3S website, in particular by disclosing your personal data yourself via the Internet, you confirm that you have taken note of this data protection declaration and that you consent to the processing of your personal data by Rexel 3S in accordance with this data protection declaration.

If you decide to register, you must enter personal information in the individual user profile. It is up to you to decide whether you want to enter this data or not.

16. Your rights

If you have provided us with personal data, you can assert the following rights at any time, provided there are no legal regulations to the contrary (Art. 12 - 23 GDPR):

  • Right to information

You have the right to obtain information about your personal data at any time in order to be informed of the lawfulness of the processing and to verify it (art. 15 par. 1 - 4 GDPR). For a complete deletion of your account, please contact the data protection contact of Rexel 3S.

  • Right to rectification

If you have provided us with personal data, you have the right to have this data corrected if it is incorrect or incomplete. We will correct this data after having informed you accordingly (Art. 16 GDPR).

  • Right to erasure (right to be forgotten)

You have the right to have your personal data deleted if they are no longer necessary for processing, if they have been unlawfully processed or if you no longer consent to or object to the processing.

In the case of data that is subject to a statutory minimum storage period or if it is required to fulfil a legal obligation or to exercise or defend legal claims, Rexel 3S may refuse the requested deletion of personal data (Art. 17 para. 1-3 GDPR).

  • Right to restriction of processing

You may restrict or block the processing of your personal data if you dispute the accuracy of the data until Rexel 3S has verified the accuracy of such data. This also applies if the processing of your personal data is unlawful and you request the restriction of their use instead of their deletion.

The right to limit the processing may also be exercised if Rexel 3S no longer needs the data but the data subject needs the data in order to establish, exercise or defend a legal claim.

Similarly, processing may be restricted if the person has objected to the processing of his or her data and Rexel 3S is considering whether his or her legitimate reasons or those of the person should prevail. Rexel 3S shall inform the data subjects before the restriction on processing is lifted (Art. 18 para. 1-3 GDPR).

  • Right to data portability

You have the right to collect and re-use your personal data for your own purposes for various services. This applies to the personal data provided to Rexel 3S. In return, Rexel 3S will provide you with this information in a structured, commonly used and computer-readable format.

Where (and if) technically feasible, you have the right to request that your personal data be transferred by Rexel 3S directly to another data controller (Art. 20 para. 1-4 GDPR).

  • Right to object

Non-compliance with processing activities

You may at any time opt out of the processing of your personal data if it is used for direct marketing purposes (including profiling), based on Rexel 3S’s legitimate interests (including profiling) and for statistical purposes. Upon receipt of such a request, the processing of personal data will cease.

Rexel 3S has the right not to satisfy such a request under the following conditions

  • When the compelling legitimate reasons for the processing take precedence over the interests, rights and freedoms of the individual to stop it.
  • If the processing is necessary for the establishment, exercise or defence of a legal claim


With regard to automatic decision-making processes

You have the right to ask Rexel 3S not to subject you to decisions based solely on automated processing (including profiling).

Rexel 3S may use automatic decision-making processes if they are necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract, if they are permitted by law or if they are based on the express consent of the person.
