In order to protect your privacy, the following principles apply at WACHENDORFF:

Anonymity

If you visit our website we will store the IP address of your Internet service provider in anonymised form, the website from which you visit us, the pages of our website that you visit and the date and duration of your visit. No inferences can be drawn regarding your person on that basis, and we will use the data exclusively for statistical analysis.

We use Google Analytics to record that data, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, i.e. text files which are stored on your computer and make it possible to analyse your use of the website. On our website, the Google Analytics code has been extended with “gat._anonymize I p ();”. As a result, anonymous recording of IP addresses (so-called “IP masking”) is ensured.

The IP address provided by your browser within the framework of Google Analytics will not be combined with any other Google data. You can prevent the storage of the cookies by setting your browser software accordingly. However, please note that if you do so you may not be able to use all the functions of this website to their full extent. You can also prevent the recording of the data generated by the cookie that relates to your use of the website (including your IP address) by Google and the processing of that data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en

We use Hotjar in order to better understand our users’ needs and to optimize this service and experience. Hotjar is a technology service that helps us better understand our users experience (e.g. how much time they spend on which pages, which links they choose to click, what users do and don’t like, etc.) and this enables us to build and maintain our service with user feedback. Hotjar uses cookies and other technologies to collect data on our users’ behavior and their devices (in particular device's IP address (captured and stored only in anonymized form), device screen size, device type (unique device identifiers), browser information, geographic location (country only), preferred language used to display our website). Hotjar stores this information in a pseudonymized user profile. Neither Hotjar nor we will ever use this information to identify individual users or to match it with further data on an individual user. For further details, please see Hotjar’s privacy policy by clicking on this link.

You can opt-out to the creation of a user profile, Hotjar’s storing of data about your usage of our site and Hotjar’s use of tracking cookies on other websites by following this opt-out link

Voluntary disclosure

The disclosure of personal data that you provide to us via the Internet (e.g. name, address or email address) is voluntary. The data provided by you will be processed for the purpose of correspondence with you or for the purpose for which you provided us with the data.

If you explicitly request it, we will occasionally inform you by newsletter of interesting offers for products and services. You can informally unsubscribe from that service at any time.

Confidentiality

We will not pass your personal data on to any third parties. The data provided by you will be used by WACHENDORFF employees in order to process your enquiry. For further processing of your enquiry we may forward your data to a qualified technical WACHENDORFF distributor in the relevant region or to our affiliated companies in the Wachendorff Group.
