Data privacy statement
We generally do not use our website to collect personal data (name, address, email address). However, each time that a user accesses a page which A.Eberle GmbH & Co. KG provides and for every file which is downloaded, data regarding this process is saved in a log file. The following information aims to provide transparency about what happens to the data collected and the security measures which we have put in place.
Here is a detailed list of the information that is saved for each instance where data is downloaded:
- the name of the file you have downloaded,
- date and time of the download,
- the amount of data transmitted,
- the page you have accessed to request the file (referrer URL),
- pages which you access using our website,
- access status (file transmitted, file not found etc.),
- the browser and operating system that you are using,
- the name of your service provider,
- the IP address of the computer you are using to access the site,
- a report about whether the download was successful.
We save this data to ensure the technical security of our site and, in particular, to help us protect our web servers against malicious attacks. The data is deleted after a maximum period of seven days. Apart from what has been described above, we do not use or process this data for any other purpose.
The collection, processing and use of personal data for a specific purpose
Personal data (name, address, email address etc.) which you submit to us using our website (e.g. in relation to an enquiry) will only be collected, processed and used for the purpose for which you provided us with the data.
This will only take place in accordance with the current legislation and with your consent. It should be pointed out here that you can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future.
The personal data which you provide us with is generally used to answer your enquiries or to process your orders.
Under normal circumstances, your personal data, including extracts thereof, is not disclosed to third parties unless legislation stipulates us to do so or you have given us your consent for this.
Insofar as we use the services provided by third parties for the performance and handling of manufacturing processes, all contractual arrangements shall be governed by the provisions of the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG).
We shall only collect data for purposes pertaining to market research, consultation services and / or advertising if you have given us your consent for this in advance.
You have a right to information regarding personal data stored about you and a right to amend inaccurate data, as well as to block and delete it. Upon request, we can provide you with our public procedures directory in accordance with § 4e of the BDSG (German Federal Data Protection Act).
Links to other suppliers
Our website contains links to internet sites which belong to other companies and are clearly identifiable as such. Where links to the websites of other suppliers are provided, we have no influence over the content of these websites. Therefore, we do not accept any liability for the contents on such sites. The respective provider or operator of any website to which a link is provided remains responsible for the content. Sites to which links have been provided were checked for possible violations of the law when the links were first created. At the time of the creation of the links, no illegal content was identified. We are not able to subsequently monitor the contents of linked pages at all times without a clear suspicion of a legal breach. Upon notification of violations, such links will be removed immediately.
It may be possible for information which is transmitted to us unencrypted by email to be read by third parties during the transmission process. We therefore cannot guarantee legally secure communications via email. We use filters against unwanted adverts (spam filters) that may also automatically classify normal emails incorrectly as unwanted adverts and delete them. Emails which contain malware (“viruses”) are also automatically deleted.
If you want to send us sensitive information, we recommend that you encrypt such information and, if possible, to electronically sign it in order to prevent unauthorised access and attempts to tamper with it. It is also an option to send the information using a more conventional method by post.
We have put technical and organisational measures in place to protect the personal data of our customers, employees and / or suppliers against unauthorised access, damage, loss, deletion and / or manipulation. We continuously review these measures to ensure they meet the current technological standards.
By using cookies we are able to analyse how users interact with our internet pages. This therefore enables us to design our content in a way that meets the needs of our visitors. In addition, the cookies also help us to measure the effectiveness of a particular advert and to display them in more appropriate places depending on the thematic interests of our users. Most of the cookies we use are "session cookies”. They are automatically deleted when you leave the website. Cookies do not contain viruses and will not harm your computer. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies. However, it is also possible to change your browser’s settings if you would prefer not to send such information. You will still be able to use the full extent of our internet pages (exception: configuration tools).
Use of Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics uses so-called "cookies", text files stored on your computer, which facilitate an analysis of your use of the website. The information about your use of this website generated by the cookie is normally transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. This web page uses Google Analytics with the “_anonymizeIp()” extension. Your IP address will therefore firstly be shortened by Google within Member States of the European Union or in other countries which are contracting parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the complete IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On our behalf, Google will use this information to assess your use of the website in order to compose reports about the website activity and provide additional services associated with homepage usage and the Internet usage to the website operator. The IP address transmitted by your browser within the scope of Google Analytics will not be merged with other data by Google. You can prevent cookies being stored via a corresponding setting in your browser software; we would also point out that in this case you may not be able to fully utilise all functions of the website. Furthermore, you can prevent the collection generated by the cookie and your use of the data related to the website (incl. your IP address) as well as the processing of this data by Google at any time with effect for the future by downloading and installing the browser plugin at the following link: [please add link here: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de].
The content provided on our website makes use of YouTube’s Social Plugin (owned by Google Inc., established in San Bruno/California, USA). The button can be identified by the black-white-red YouTube logo.
By visiting a page of our website which has the YouTube plugin, a connection to Google’s servers is made. Amongst other things, this informs the Google server of the specific page of our site you are visiting, even if you do not have a YouTube account or are not currently logged in. This information (including your IP address) is transmitted by your browser directly to a Google server in the USA and stored there.
If you are logged into YouTube, Google can link your visit to our site to your personal account.
As the website operators, we have no influence on the extent of the data that YouTube collects through this plugin. According to Google, no personal information is collected if the button is not clicked. Only for members who are logged in will any such data (IP address amongst other data) be collected and processed. For information on the purpose and extent of data capture and additional processing and use of data by Google, as well your rights in this regard and the setting options protecting your personal privacy, please refer to the Google data protection information at www.youtube.com by clicking on the “Privacy” link (link to https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/).
