Data protection

Data protection on the eurodata AG websites
We respect your privacy and personality and would like your visit to our Internet pages to be secure and satisfactory. We thus take the protection of your personal data (such as name, date of birth, address, e-mail address, telephone number) very seriously, and when handling such data we pay very strict attention to the relevant statutory data protection regulations.

Gathering and processing of personal data, consent
Without your consent we will not collect any personal data about you whatsoever via our website. You alone decide whether you want to disclose any personal data to us or not – for example in the context of a survey, registration, a prize competition or suchlike. If you do provide us with data of that kind about yourself, you consent by doing so to the saving and utilisation of those data within the meaning of the laws on data protection. In general, we will use such personal data provided by you to answer your enquiries, supply you with the information or quotations requested, or give you access to such information.

Data protection declaration for the use of Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. ('Google'). Google Analytics employs so-called 'cookies', text files that are saved on your computer and enable an analysis to be made of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a server of Google in the USA and stored there. On activation of the IP anonymisation facility on this website, however, your IP address will, within the member states of the European Union or other states which are party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area, first be truncated. Only in exceptional cases will the whole IP address be transmitted to a server of Google in the USA and truncated there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, compile reports on site activity for the operator and provide the operator with other services relating to website activity and Internet usage. The IP address that your browser conveys within the scope of Google Analytics will not be combined with any other data stored by Google. You may refuse to allow the saving of cookies by selecting the appropriate setting on your browser, but we would like to point out that if you do so you may not be able to exploit the full functionality of this website.
You can, moreover, prevent the data that are generated by the cookie and relate to your use of the website (including your IP address) from being collected and processed by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at (https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en). You can prevent data from being gathered by Google Analytics by clicking on the following link: deactivate Google Analytics
That will save an opt-out cookie which will prevent your data from being gathered when you visit this website in the future.
For more detailed information on this, go to https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en or https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=en (general information on Google Analytics and data protection). We would like to draw your attention to the fact that on this website Google Analytics has been extended to include the code "gat._anonymizeIp();" to ensure that IP addresses can only be recorded in anonymised form (so-called IP masking).

Use and passing-on of personal data, revocation of consent
In the context of maintaining customer relations, it may be necessary to save the personal data you have supplied, to process them or to pass them on to one of our affiliates in order to be able to cater to your wishes more effectively, improve our products or inform you about our range. For that reason, your personal data will only be used for purposes of customer administration, product surveys or marketing, and in each case only to the extent necessary.
Under no circumstances will we sell your personal data, market them elsewhere, or make them available to third parties in any other way. We also place our employees and agencies under obligation to maintain secrecy on such data and to ensure that your privacy and personality rights are protected.
Having said that, to the extent to which it is necessary to make the personal data provided by you available to third parties for the completion of certain procedures in which we avail ourselves of their services (e.g. dispatch of advertising materials, prize competitions), the data will in such cases be treated with equal diligence and used only to the extent required for the purpose concerned. And we are, of course, prepared to respect your decision if you do not wish to give us your personal data in support of our customer relations. You can revoke your consent with future effect at any time by e-mail, or by post to:

Security
In the administration of our website we have taken various technical and organisational precautions to protect your data against intentional or accidental manipulation, access by unauthorised third parties, loss, destruction or change. This protection is subject to continuous improvement in the context of technological progress.

Non-personal data which are gathered automatically
When our Internet pages are accessed, information such as cannot be assigned to an actual person is occasionally gathered automatically and without registration, for example information about the Internet browser used, the number of visits, the average time spent on the site, the pages visited, the domain name of the site from which you accessed our Internet pages etc. We use these non-personal data to improve the attractiveness of our Internet pages and adapt them even better to the requirements of our customers.

Cookies
When you access our website, information in the form of a small text file ('cookie') may be placed automatically and temporarily on your hard disc. Such cookies are only used by us for the purpose of gathering information about the use of our website. They make it possible for your computer to be recognised automatically the next time it accesses our site, but they do not allow that information to be associated with your personal identity in any way; they do not contain any personal data. They help us to recognise your preferences and thus tailor our website precisely to your needs in order to improve the range of products and services we offer for your benefit. If you do not wish cookies to be saved on your hard disc, you can alter the settings on your browser accordingly.

Children
We encourage parents and custodians to show the children in their care how to handle personal data securely on the Internet and impress upon them that they should not transmit any personal data to our website without the approval of their parents or custodian. At the same time, we also hereby give our assurance that we shall not knowingly gather personal data from children or utilise such in any way.

Right to information
If requested to do so in writing by e-mail or post, we shall be glad to inform you whether or not any personal data of yours have been stored by us via our Internet pages and, if so, which data. If you ask us to do so, we shall of course alter or delete those data. If you have any further questions regarding the processing of your personal data, please feel free to contact us:
