Encryption

We use state-of-the-art encryption techniques such as SSL via HTTPS to protect the security of your data during transmission.

Our website enables you to contact us by e-mail or contact forms. The information that you provide will be processed for the purpose of handling the respective enquiry as well as for possible follow-up questions in accordance with Article 6 paragraph 1 letter b) EGDPR. Forwarding of this information to third parties will not take place, with the exception of other companies of the PFEIFER Group, if necessary.

Server logs

On the basis of our justified interests within the meaning of Article 6 paragraph 1 letter f) EGDPR and for security reasons (e.g. for the clarification of cases of misuse or deceit), we store amongst other things the user's IP address and a timestamp of the visit in so-called server log files each time our website is visited. This information is stored for 7 days and is then deleted. The only exception to this deletion is information whose storage is necessary to allow its use as evidence for a specific incident, until the incident is finally clarified.

Newsletter

When registering to receive our newsletter, the data that you provide will be used exclusively for this purpose. We require your e-mail address for the registration to be effective. We use the "double opt-in" method to check that the registration is really carried out by the owner of the respective e-mail address. To do this we log the ordering of the newsletter, the sending of a confirmation mail and the receipt of the required response. The processing of your contact data and the sending of the newsletter take place on the basis of your consent in accordance with Article 6 paragraph 1 letter a) EGDPR. Subscribing to the newsletter and the associated consent to the storage of your e-mail address can be cancelled at any time. A corresponding link for this can be found in every newsletter. The newsletter is sent by mailingwork GmbH, Birkenweg 7, 09569 Oederan, Germany, whose data protection declaration can be viewed at https://mailingwork.de/datenschutz/.

Google Remarketing and "similar target group" functions

On the basis of our justified interests (addressing targeted advertising to visitors to the website by displaying interest-related advertisements when they visit other websites in the Google Display Network) as defined in Article 6, Section 1 f) GDPR, we use Google Remarketing and the "similar target groups" function of Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA on our website. The purpose of this function is to analyse visitor behaviour and interests. Google uses cookies to analyse the use of the website. The website visits and anonymised data on the use of the website are collected by these cookies. The personal data of the website visitor are not stored. If you subsequently visit another website that is part of the Google Display Network, advertisements will be shown to you that will most probably take into account previously visited product and information areas. Your data may thereby be transmitted to the USA. An appropriateness resolution of the European Commission exists for the transmission of data to the USA. You can permanently deactivate the use of cookies by Google by clicking the following link and downloading and installing the plugin provided there: https://support.google.com/ads/answer/7395996?hl=en Alternatively, you can deactivate the use of cookies by third-party providers by visiting the deactivation page of the Network Advertising Initiative at https://www.networkadvertising.org/choices/ and implementing the further information on opting out provided there.

Cookies

On the basis of our justified interests (analysis, optimisation and cost-effective operation of our website) within the meaning of Article 6 paragraph 1 letter f) EGDPR, we use so-called cookies on our website. These are small files saved on the user’s computer to store specific settings for the use of our web presence. As a result of this we automatically receive certain data (e.g. IP address, browser used, operating system) about your computer and its connection to the Internet. You can also use our webpage without cookies by deactivating the use of cookies in your browser. The comfort and functional scope of our offer may however be restricted by the deactivation of cookies. In order to learn how to deactivate cookies in your browser, please use the Help function.

Google Analytics

On the basis of our justified interests (analysis, optimisation and cost-effective operation of our website) within the meaning of Article 6 paragraph 1 letter f) EGDPR, we use Google Analytics on our website, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics uses so-called “Cookies“. These are small files saved on the user’s computer, thus enabling an analysis of the use of the website. On our behalf, Google can use this information to analyse the use of our website and prepare reports about website activities. The information generated by the cookie about the use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA, where it is stored. Due to statutory specifications, the IP anonymisation function is active on our website, meaning that your IP address is already abbreviated and anonymised within the member states of the European Union or in other contracting states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. The IP address communicated by your browser within the scope of Google Analytics is not added to other Google data.

You can also use our website without cookies by deactivating the use of cookies in your browser. The convenience and functional scope of our offer may however be restricted by the deactivation of cookies. In order to learn how to deactivate cookies in your browser, please use the Help function.

Beyond this, you can also prevent the recording of the data related to your website generated by the cookie (incl. your IP address) as well as the processing of said data by Google, by downloading and installing the browser add-on available from the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en

As an alternative to the browser add-on or on mobile devices, please click on this Link to prevent future recording within this website by Google Analytics. In doing so, an opt-out cookie is stored on your device. You must click on the link again if you should delete your cookies.

Use of script libraries and webfonts

In order to display our contents correctly in all browsers and in a graphically appealing manner, we use script libraries and font libraries on this website. The calling of script libraries or font libraries automatically initiates a connection to the operator of the library. It is thereby possible that the operators of corresponding libraries will collect and analyse data about these calls.

The webfonts used on our pages are provided by Monotype Imaging Holdings Inc., 600 Unicorn Park Drive, Woburn, Massachusetts, USA.

The data protection guideline of the library operator can be found at https://www.myfonts.com/info/legal/#Privacy
