This privacy statement clarifies to the user the nature, the scope and purpose of the collection and usage of personal data by the responsible provider modular automation GmbH, Daimlerweg 3, 64293 Darmstadt, +49 (0)6151 8701 090, info(at)modular-automation.de on this web site (in the following termed the “material offered”).
The legal basis for the data protection is the German law on data protection (Bundesdatenschutzgesetz - BDSG) and the German law on telemedia (Telemediengesetz - TMG).
Access data/ server log files
The provider (or his webspace provider) collects data on every access to the material offered (so-called server log files). The access data include:
Name of the web site accessed, file, date and time of access, data volume transferred, report on successful access, browser type along with version, the user's operating system, referrer URL (the page visited previously), IP address and the requesting provider.
The provider uses the log data only for statistical evaluations for the purpose of the operation, the security and the optimisation of the material offered. However, the provider reserves the right to check the log data subsequently if, due to tangible evidence, there is justified suspicion of unlawful usage.
Handling of personal data
Personal data are information with the aid of which a person can be identified, that is information that can be traced back to a person. This information includes the name, the e-mail address or the telephone number. However, data on preferences, hobbies, memberships or on which web sites a person views are also personal data. Personal data are only collected, utilised and distributed by the provider if allowed by law or the user consents to the collection of data.
On making contact with the provider (for example by contact form or e-mail) the user's data are saved for processing the enquiry as well as for the case that subsequent questions arise.
With the newsletter we inform you about us and the services and products we offer. If you want to receive the newsletter, we need from you a valid e-mail address as well as information that enable us to check that you are the owner of the e-mail address given, or its owner agrees to the reception of the newsletter. Other data are not collected. These data are only used to send the newsletter and are not provided to third parties.
With the registration for the newsletter we save your IP address and the date of registration. These data are only saved as evidence in the event that a third party misuses an e-mail address and registers for the reception of the newsletter without the knowledge of the authorised person.
You can revoke your consent to the storage of the data, the e-mail address as well as its usage for sending the newsletter at any time. The revocation can be via a link in the newsletter itself, in your profile area or by means of notification to the contact options stated above.
Integration of services and content from third parties
It may occur that within this material offered online, contents from third parties, for example videos from YouTube, map material from Google Maps, RSS feeds or graphics from other web sites are integrated. This integration requires that the providers of this content (termed "third-party providers" in the following) are aware of the user's IP address. As without the IP address, they cannot send the content to the related user's browser. The IP address is therefore required to display this information. We make every effort to use only content from providers who only use the IP address to deliver the content. However, we have no influence on whether the third-party providers save the IP address, e.g. for statistical purposes. As far as is known to us, we inform the users about this aspect.
