Data Privacy Statement

 

Thank you for your interest in our website. Your privacy is very important to us. Detailed information on how your data is handled can be found below.

Storage of access data in server log files

You can visit our website without providing personal information. We only store access data in so-called server log files, e.g. the name of the requested file, date and time of retrieval, transferred data volume and the requesting provider. This data is analysed solely for the purpose of guaranteeing the trouble-free operation of the site and to improve our offering, and cannot be traced back to an individual person.

Collection and use of data for contract processing

We collect personal information if you voluntarily provide this information by contacting us (e.g. completing the contact form or by e-mail). The type of data that is collected can be seen in the relevant input forms. We use the information that you provide to process your inquiries. Once this process has been completed, your data is blocked from further use and is deleted following the expiry of the storage periods required under law and commercial law, insofar as you did not expressly consent to the additional use of your data or we reserve the right to use the data beyond this purpose, if this use is permitted by law (for information, see below).

Use of cookies

Some pages of this site use cookies, which enable us to create an attractive user experience and provide a number of specific functions. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your device. Some of the cookies that we use will be deleted at the end of your browser session, meaning after you close your browser (session cookies). Other cookies remain on your computer and allow us to identify your browser the next time you visit the website (persistent cookies). You can set your browser to inform you of every new cookie, so you can accept each one individually, or you can also set your browser to refuse the cookies for certain cases or in general. The refusal to accept cookies may impair the functionality of our website.

Use of Google Analytics for web analysis purposes

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service from Google Inc. (www.google.de). Google Analytics uses so-called "cookies", which are text files that are stored on your computer and that make it possible to analyze your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is generally transmitted to and stored at Google servers in the US. In the event that the IP anonymization is activated on this website, Google will shorten your IP address within member states of the European Union or other contract states of the Treaty on the European Economic Area before transmission. Only in exceptional cases will Google transmit the full IP address to a Google server in the US before it is shortened. IP anonymization is activated on this website. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to analyze your use of the website to generate reports about the activities on the website, and to provide other services related to the use of the website and the Internet to the website operator. The IP address provided by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be combined with other Google data. You can prevent the installation of the cookies by changing the relevant settings in your browser software; but please be advised that you may not be able to use all of the features of the website in this case.

To ensure that the data (including your IP address) that is generated by the cookie and that is related to your use of the website is not forwarded to and processed by Google, you can download and install the browser plugin available at the following link:

http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de

As an alternative to the browser plugin, you can also click on this link to prevent Google Analytics from collecting information on this website in the future. This has the effect of installing an opt-out cookie on your computer. You have to click on the link again if you delete your cookies.

Data collection in web analytics

This compiled data will be processed and provided exclusively to A+W Software GmbH and will not be passed to third parties beyond A+W Software GmbH. Likewise this data will never be used for other purposes or even be sold.

The servers used to analyze this data are operating exclusively in sovereign territory of the Federal Republic of Germany.

Use of Facebook plugins

Our website uses social plugins from the social network Facebook, which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA ("Facebook"). The plugins are marked with the Facebook logo or the additional identifier "Facebook Social Plugin". An overview of Facebook plugins and their appearance can be found here:

http://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins

When you access one of our web pages that contains such a plugin, your browser will establish a direct connection to Facebook's servers. The content of the plugin is transferred from Facebook directly to your browser, and is integrated into the site. By doing this, Facebook receives the information that your browser has accessed the relevant page on our website, even if you do not have a Facebook profile or are not even logged into Facebook. Your browser will transmit this information (including your IP address) directly to a Facebook server in the US, where it is stored. If you are logged into Facebook, Facebook can assign your website visit directly to your Facebook profile. If you interact with the plugins, for example if you press the "Like" button or submit a comment, this information is also directly transmitted to and stored on a Facebook server. The information is also published on your Facebook profile and displayed to your Facebook friends. To learn more about the purpose and scope of data collection and how data is processed and used by Facebook, along with your rights and the settings you can apply to protect your privacy, please see Facebook's data privacy information:

http://www.facebook.com/policy.php

If you do not want Facebook to assign the data collected through our website to your Facebook profile, you must log out from Facebook prior to visiting our site. You can also prevent the Facebook plugins from being loaded by installing add-ons for your browser (e.g. "Facebook Blocker|" (http://webgraph.com/resources/facebookblocker/) or "NoScript" (http://noscript.net/).

Use of Google+ plugins (e.g. "+1 Button)

Our website uses social plugins from the social network Google+, which is operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA ("Google"). The plugins can be identified e.g. on buttons containing the symbol "+1" on a white or color background. An overview of Google plugins and their appearance can be found here:

https://developers.google.com/+/plugins

When you access one of our web pages that contains such a plugin, your browser will establish a direct connection to Google's servers. The content of the plugin is transferred from Google directly to your browser, and is integrated into the site. By doing this, Google receives the information that your browser has accessed the relevant page on our website, even if you do not have a Google+ profile or are not even logged into Google+. Your browser will transmit this information (including your IP address) directly to a Google server in the US, where it is stored. If you are logged into Google+, Google can assign your website visit directly to your Google+ profile. If you interact with the plugins, for example if you press the "+1" button, this information is also directly transmitted to a Google server, where it is stored. The information is also published on your Google+ profile and displayed to your contacts. To learn more about the purpose and scope of data collection and how data is processed and used by Google, along with your rights and the settings you can apply to protect your privacy, please see Google's data privacy information:

http://www.google.com/intl/de/+/policy/+1button.html

If you do not want Google to assign the data collected through our website to your Google+ profile, you must log out from Google+ prior to visiting our site. You can also prevent the Google plugins from being loaded by installing add-ons for your browser, for example by installing the "NoScript" script blocker (http://noscript.net/).
