Data protection

We are pleased that you have found your way to the website of Stahl-Armaturen PERSTA. Protecting your privacy is a high priority for us. We collect, process and use personal data exclusively in compliance with the German Federal Data Protection Act (Bundesdatenschutzgesetz) and the German Telemedia Act (Telemediengesetz). You can find out below exactly what that means.

Storage of access data in server log files

You can visit our site without providing any data about yourself. We only store access data in our server log files. This access data includes, for example, the name of the file that was downloaded, the date, time and data volume of the request and the provider from which the request was received. This data is used exclusively to improve our (online) services and cannot be traced back to you.

Personal data

Personal data is only collected, processed and used by us if this is permitted by applicable law or if you have given your consent. There are areas of our website that can only be viewed if you provide your personal data. This data has to be entered manually in a form. This means that you are actively getting in contact with us. We use this data to be able to support you, for example, with your search for the right data sheets and certificates and to make further correspondence easier. We do not pass this data on to third parties.

Use of cookies

Certain functions of our website are only possible through the use of cookies. Cookies are small text files that are stored locally on your device. A distinction is made here between ‘session cookies’ and ‘persistent cookies’. Session cookies are deleted as soon as you close your browser. Persistent cookies remain on your device and help us to identify your browser as a returning visitor the next time you visit our website. You can configure your browser settings so that you are informed when cookies are set or have to confirm this operation manually, or you can block cookies in certain cases or as a general rule. If you block cookies on our web pages, we cannot guarantee full functionality.

Use of Google Analytics for web analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. (www.google.de). Google Analytics uses ‘cookies’, which are text files stored on your computer so your use of the website can be analysed. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website will usually be transmitted to and stored on a Google server in the United States. If IP address anonymisation is activated on this website, however, Google will shorten your IP address beforehand within Member States of the European Union and in other states party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the United States and shortened there. Google will use this information on behalf of the operator of this website for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services to the website operator relating to website and internet usage. Google will not associate the IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics with any other data. You may prevent cookies from being stored by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser. However, please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website.

You can also prevent Google from collecting and processing the information generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including your IP address) by clicking on the following link (http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de) and downloading and installing the browser add-on.

As an alternative to the browser add-on, you can click on this link to prevent Google Analytics from collecting information on this website in future. This stores an opt-out cookie on your device. If you delete your cookies, you will have to click on the link again: Opt out of Google Analytics

You can find further information on the terms of use and privacy at: http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html and at: https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/. Please note that on this website Google Analytics has been extended by the code ‘anonymizeIp’ to ensure that your IP address is anonymised before your data is collected (IP masking).

Right to information and point of contact

You have a right to be provided with information about the data relating to you we have stored on our system free of charge and, where applicable, a right to have this data corrected, blocked or erased. If you have any questions about the collection, processing or use of your personal data, or should you require information about your stored data, or if it needs to be corrected, blocked or erased, and also if you wish to withdraw your consent or object to a particular use of your data, please contact info@siepmann.de directly.
