This privacy statement applies to the internet offer of GAHRENS + BATTERMANN GmbH, Lustheide 77, 51427 Bergisch-Gladbach – +49 (0)2204 / 204-0 – email@example.com.
This privacy statement aims to clarify the type, extent and purpose of the collection and use of personal data on this internet site.
Personal data is information which may be used to gain knowledge of your personal or factual circumstances. Information which cannot be related to a person with proportional efforts, e.g. due to pseudonymisation or anonymisation, does not constitute personal data.
Processing and collection of personal data
You can use the majority of our website without disclosing your personal data. In some places, you are given the option to contact us, or to use our other services (e.g. newsletters, price list). Here, we only collect the data required for such purposes. This data is not used for other purposes, unless you have given your consent.
When you visit our website, general information is automatically captured and saved in server log files. The content of these server log files includes:
•Operating system used
•Referrer URL (the website visited previously)
•Time of server request
This general information does not allow us to identify any particular person. For our purposes, server log files are a technical means for rectifying errors on our website.
Disclosure to third parties
Personal data is generally not disclosed to third parties. If permissible under the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG), personal data may be disclosed within the GAHRENS + BATTERMANN Group if this is useful in answering your enquiry.
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies”, i.e. text files which are stored on your computer and facilitate analysis of your use of our website. The information about your use of our website created through cookies is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there.
If IP anonymisation is activated on this website, Google will truncate your IP address within the member states of the European Union or other states which are party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area beforehand. The full IP address will only be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and truncated there in exceptional cases. IP anonymisation is activated on this website. Google will use this information on behalf of the operator of this website to evaluate your use of the website, compile reports about website activities, and provide other services in connection with the use of the website and the internet to the website operator.
The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other data from Google. You can prevent the storage of the cookies by adjusting your browser settings accordingly. However, please note that you may then not be able to fully use all functions of this website. Moreover, you can prevent the collection of the data created by the cookie and in relation to your use of this website (incl. your IP address) for Google, as well as the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available under the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de
Please note that we have extended Google Analytics by the function/code “gat._anonymizeIp”. This means that the last 8 bit of the IP address are deleted, only leaving the option of anonymised IP capture.
These webpages sometimes use “cookies”. Their purpose is to make our offer more user-friendly, more effective and more secure. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser. Most of the cookies used by us are “session cookies” which are characterised by the fact that they are automatically deleted upon termination of the browser session. Other cookies remain on your device (permanent cookies). Of course, you may reject cookies at any time if your browser provides this function. If required, please see your programme support for guidance on adjusting your browser settings accordingly.
