Privacy Policy


Microtech Gefell GmbH respects the privacy of your data. We treat your personal information
obtained by whatever means (e-mail, phone, fax, letter post, personal conversations, internet
etc.) in accordance with the applicable data privacy regulations. Your data will not be
disclosed or unwarrantedly shared with others. Subsequently we will point out, which kind of
data is collected and how it is used.


1. Data logging and processing upon accessing our website


Once you visit our websites, the provider of our webserver will temporarily record every
access in a log file. The following information is logged and stored until it is automatically
deleted:

  • IP address of the inquiring computer
  • Date and time of the request
  • Name and URL of the requested data
  • Amount of data transferred
  • Reports on whether a request was successful
  • Data identifying your browser and operating system
  • Website from where the access was initiated
  • Name of your internet service provider


This information is used for providing access to our website, maintaining system security,
managing the network infrastructure and optimizing our online presence. IP addresses will
only be traced in the event of an attack on our network infrastructure.
Pseudonymous user profiles may be generated in accordance with our policy on web analytics
(cf. 6.).


2. Communication through our website


If you order any product information or goods through our website we will use the provided
address information solely for the purpose of fulfilling your order. If, for practical reasons,
your order is fulfilled by one of our dealers, we will provide them with the necessary
information. Our dealers themselves are bound to comply with the regulations of our privacy
policy.


3. Use and disclosure of personal data


The use of your personal data only serves the purposes described in this privacy policy and
only to the extent necessary for these purposes. Your data will not be disclosed to third parties
except our authorized dealers. Personal information will only be disclosed to authorities if
required by mandatory legal provisions or for prosecution and law enforcement in the event of
an attack on our network infrastructure.


4. Consent to further use


Any use of personal information beyond the purposes described in this privacy policy requires
your explicit consent.


5. Cookies


We normally do not use cookies on our websites. In certain circumstances, cookies containing
information needed for technical session control are stored in the cache of your browser.
These are deleted upon closing your browser. If, in any case, we want to store personal
information such as user information in a cookie, we will indicate this explicitly.
Of course you can also browse our websites without using cookies. Most browsers accept
cookies by default. You can prevent this by disabling the corresponding option in your
browser’s settings. However, disabling cookies may impair the functionality of our website.


6. Web analytics


We will not generate personal user profiles. However, section 15 para. 3 of the German
Telemedia Act (TM GE) allows the generation of pseudonymous user profiles for the
purposes of advertising, market research and demand-based design of services unless the user
disagrees.
Our website uses Google Analytics, a service provided by Google Inc.. Google Analytics
employs text files (so-called cookies), which are stored on your computer. This allows for
analysing the usage of our website. Information on your use of the website collected by means
of the cookie (including your IP address) is transferred to and stored on a server operated by
Google in the USA. Google uses this information to analyse the use of the website and to
provide us with reports on web activity and further services related to internet and website
use. Google may disclose this information to third parties if required by law or if this
information is processed by third parties on behalf of Google. Google will not associate this
data with any other data held by Google Inc.. You can prevent cookies from being installed by
disabling the corresponding option in your browser’s settings. Please also refer to section 5.
By using this website you agree to the processing of your data through Google for the
purposes and in the ways described above. The information obtained by means of tracking
technology will not be used for identifying you personally without your specific consent.
Neither will the collected data be associated with personal data regarding the holder of the
pseudonym. There will not be any cross-website analysis.


7. Social plugins


On our websites we also use social plugins, including those of social networks like Facebook,
Twitter, YouTube or Google +. Some of these are technically operated from within the USA
or other countries outside of Germany and the EU and are provided through national
subsidiaries within the EU (information on these services can be found on their respective
websites: www.facebook.de, www.twitter.de, www.youtube.de or www.google.de). The
plugins typically carry the logo of the respective company and feature a comments box or a
“like” or “+1” button.
When you access one of the pages of our online presence which contains a social plugin, your
browser will establish a direct connection with the server of that company in the respective
country.
Due to the integration of the plugins, these services will at least gain information about you
visiting a certain page of our website and possibly data identifying your web browser and
device. The content of the plugin is directly loaded from the provider by your web browser
and embedded into our website. If you are a registered user of the corresponding service and
logged on while visiting our website, your visit can be associated with your user account.
Likewise, when interacting with the plugin, for example by clicking the “like” button or
entering a comment into a form field, your browser will transmit this information directly to
the corresponding service, where it will be stored and possibly processed or made public.
The described logging and use of data firstly serves the purpose of and is limited to the extent
of marketing measures of the respective service and Microtech Gefell GmbH. Further
information regarding data use and your rights and settings for protecting your privacy can be
found in the privacy policies of the respective services. In order to prevent a service from
obtaining any personal data through our website, you have to disable plugins in your
browser’s settings. If you do not want your visit to be associated with an existing user
account, you must log off before visiting our websites.
By using our websites you agree to the procedures described above.

privacy regulations.

to the correction of any wrong data, as well as blocking and deletion of your personal data.
