Use of cookies

 

1) Häring cookies

 

We use cookies and active components (e.g. JavaScript) to track visitor’s preferences and customize the design of the websites. Cookies are small text files stored on your computer when you visit our website. If you like, you can delete the cookies at any time. However, this can result in some functions no longer being available. For information on deleting the cookies, please consult your browser‘s help function.

 

2) Third-party cookies

Our websites may incorporate content and services from other providers (e.g. YouTube, Facebook, Google, and Twitter) who, in turn, may use cookies and active components. We have no influence on the processing of personal information by these providers.  Please refer to the respective provider’s websites for information about how your data is handled.

 

Use of Facebook plugins

 

Our Website uses social plugins ("plugins") from the social network Facebook.com, which is operated by Facebook Inc., Palo Alto, CA, USA ("Facebook"). The plugins are identified with the Facebook logo or the suffix "Facebook", "like", or "share".

 

If you visit a page on our Website that contains such plugins, they are initially disabled. The plugins are not enabled until you click the button that is provided. By enabling the plugins, you establish the connection to Facebook and declare your consent to the transmission of data to Facebook. If you are logged into Facebook, Facebook can associate the visit with your Facebook account. If you press the respective button, the corresponding information is transmitted directly to Facebook by your browser and stored there.

 

For information about the scope and purpose of data collection, the further processing and use of the data by Facebook, and your rights and the settings you can configure to protect your privacy, please refer to the Facebook Data Protection Notice.

 

If you do not want Facebook to collect data about you via our website, you have to log out of Facebook before visiting our site.

 

Use of external links

 

Our Website may contain links to third-party websites operated by providers that are not associated with us. After you click the link, we no longer have any influence over the collection, storage, or processing of any personal information transmitted by clicking the link (such as the IP address or URL of the page that contains the link), as the behavior of third parties is, by nature, beyond our control. Therefore, we are not responsible for the processing of personal information by third parties.

 

Use of personal information and purpose specification

 

Gathering personal information about our users allows us to serve you better.  We will never use your personal information in a way that is prohibited by applicable law.  Here are some ways in which we might use your personal information:

 

  • Our Business Purposes.  We may use your personal information for our everyday business purposes, such as to provide services to you, to communicate information and updates to you, and to update our profile about you.  Additionally, we may share your personal information with companies related to us by common ownership or control, and they may use your personal information for their everyday business purposes.

     

  • Service Providers.  From time to time, we may employ companies and individuals to perform certain services on our behalf (such as conducting audits, performing legal services, processing credit card payments, or providing customer service).  These third-party service providers may have access to personal information, but only to the extent required to perform their assigned roles, and they may not use your personal information for any other reason.

     

  • Ownership Transfer.  We may transfer any information, including your personal information, in the event of a transfer of ownership, assets, securities, or bankruptcy involving us and in connection with business transactions such as buying or selling subsidiaries or engaging in joint ventures with third parties; provided, however, that we will use reasonable efforts to direct the transferee to use any transferred information, including your personal information, in a manner that is consistent with this Privacy Policy.

     

  • Compliance with Law.  We may release personal information about you if we believe such a release is necessary to comply with the law or in response to a subpoena or other legal process.

 

Security

 

We have put in place commercially reasonable physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online. However, no security system is perfect, and we cannot guarantee that information you provide to us over the Internet will remain private.  We also cannot guarantee that information you transmit to us over the Internet will not be intercepted. 

 

Use of Website by Children

 

The Website is not intended for children under the age of 13.  We will not knowingly collect personally identifiable information via the Website from visitors in this age group and will take prompt steps to delete any such personally identifiable information.

 

Changes to this Privacy Policy

 

The Internet is constantly changing, as is the nature of our Internet business operations, so we will likely need to change this Privacy Policy from time to time.  You should check this Privacy Policy frequently to review the latest version of the Privacy Policy.  Our posting an amended version of the Privacy Policy on the Website will serve as notice to you of that amendment.

 

Tracking

 

At this time, the Website does not respond to web browser “do not track” signals.  We may add this functionality in the future, and if we do, we will update this Privacy Policy to let you know.  For now, third parties may collect personally identifiable information about your online activities over time and across different websites when you use our Website.
