Data Protection

At Wuppermann AG we take our responsibility to protect the privacy of your personal data very seriously. The following statement explains what kind of personal data we collect and how we process, use, and protect this data.

1. Data collection

When you visit our internet site, your PC’s current IP address, the type of browser you are using, your PC’s operating system, and your visits to the pages you view are logged. It is neither possible nor our intention to link this information to your personal data, however.

The personal data you submit to us by e-mail (such as your name and contact information) enables us to correspond with you, and it is processed only for the purpose for which you have provided the data.

We will never disclose your personal data to any third party without your prior express consent unless we are required to do so by law. If we employ the services of third parties to perform processing procedures, those procedures are performed in full compliance with the provisions of the German Federal Data Protection Act (Bundesdatenschutzgesetz).

2. Data retention period

Personal data submitted to us through our website is stored only until the purpose for which it has been entrusted to us has been fulfilled.

3. Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyse how you use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website is normally transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. If IP anonymisation is activated on this website, Google will, however, truncate your IP address within the Member States of the European Union or other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases is the entire IP address transmitted to a Google server in the USA and truncated 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 website activity reports, and providing the website operator with other services relating to website activity and internet use. The IP address transmitted from your browser as part of the Google Analytics process will not be associated by Google with other data. You may prevent the cookies from being saved by means of the appropriate settings in your browser software; please note, however, that this may deprive you of the ability to make full use of all the functions this website offers. Furthermore, you can prevent the data generated by the cookie and relating to your use of the website (including your IP address) from being collected by Google, and prevent Google from processing these data, by downloading and installing the browser plugin available through the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en

For more information, go to http://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/ (general information on Google Analytics and data privacy).

Please note that on this website Google Analytics uses the additional code “gat._anonymizeIp();” to ensure that IP addresses are collected anonymously (through “IP masking”).
