Log files

With every access of a user on our website and with each access of a file, data concerning these events are automatically collected and stored in a log file. In detail, the following data are stored about each access:

  • IP address of the requesting device
  • Name of the accessed file.
  • Date and time of the access.
  • Amount of data transferred.
  • Notification of whether the access was successful.
  • Description of the type of web browser used.

The storage exclusively supports internal system-related and statistical purposes. We use this information to continuously improve and update our website in order to increase its attractiveness (safeguarding legitimate interests). In addition, we use the data to identify and defend against attempted attacks and to clarify the suspicion of use relevant to criminal law. The basis of law for this is Article 6 Section 1 Letter f of the DSGVO (Datenschutzgrundverordnung, English: General Data Protection Regulation [GDPR]) (safeguarding legitimate interests).

The recorded data will not be pooled together with other data sources, in particular data which permits an association with a particular person.

Cookies

Our website uses cookies. Cookies are small text files that make it possible to save specific information related to the user on the terminal device of the user while the user uses the website. Cookies enable us to determine, in particular, the frequency of use and the number of users of web pages, to analyze website activity behaviours, and to design our offering in a more customer-friendly manner. The basis of law for this is Article 6 Section 1 Letter f of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

Most of the cookies we use are so-called “session cookies.” These cookies are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Other cookies remain saved on your terminal device until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognize your browser the next time you visit our website.

If you do not wish that we recognize information about your computer, please configure your browser so that it deletes cookies from your computer’s hard drive, blocks all cookies, or warns you before a cookie is saved. However, in those cases, not all functions of this website may be available to you.

If you leave our website through a link or through clicking possible banner advertising, and reach the site of a third party, it can happen that the addressee of the clicked-on target site sets cookies. We are not legally responsible for these cookies. Please refer to the data privacy policies of those third parties concerning the use of such cookies and the information recorded in them through our advertising partners.

Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including your IP address that is anonymized) will be, as a rule, transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States of America. Please be advised that on this website, Google Analytics has been extended by the code “gat._anonymizeIp();” to ensure anonymized collecting of IP addresses (so-called IP masking). Through the anonymization, Google shortens IP addresses within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area, which is why no conclusions about your identity are possible. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transmitted to a Google server in the United States of America and shortened there. Google complies with the data protection policies of the “EU-US Privacy Shield” framework and is certified accordingly, so that an appropriate level of data protection is guaranteed. Google processes the collected information to analyze the use of our website, create reports for us on website activities and use, and to provide us with further services regarding website use. The IP address transmitted by your browser in the context of Google Analytics will not be combined with other data from Google.

You may refuse the installation of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser; however, please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. By using this website, you consent to the processing of data about you by Google in the manner and for the purposes set out above.

If you do not consent to the processing of data about you by using this website, then you can download a browser add-on from this link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de (German language) or http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en (English language) that allows you to configure Google Analytics such that no more information about the website visit will be sent to Google Analytics. As an alternative, you can prevent the collection through Google Analytics by clicking on the following link. Deactivate Google Analytics. This sets an opt-out cookie that prevents the future collection of your data while visiting this website.

More information on Google data protection may be found at https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=de (German language) and https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en (English language).

Vimeo

Our website uses an embedded Vimeo Player for the display and playback of videos. The operator of the video platform Vimeo is Vimeo, LLC, 555 West 18th Street, New York, New York 10011, USA. When you view a page on our website containing an embedded Vimeo Player, a connection to the servers of Vimeo is established. In the process, your IP address along with the URL of the retrieved video is transmitted to the server. If you have a Vimeo account and are logged into Vimeo, Vimeo can assign this information to you and process it in your personal profile.

If you do not wish Vimeo to collect data about you and link it to your personal profile, you must log out of Vimeo before visiting our website. Further information about the collection and use of your data by Vimeo can be found in Vimeo’s data protection statement at https://vimeo.com/privacy (English language).

Auxiliary Programs, Active Content

To make this website available, Java applets, Active-X controls, and JavaScript are used. If, for security reasons, you do not wish to utilize these auxiliary programs or this active content, kindly deactivate the appropriate settings of your browser.

Use of Personal Data You Make Available to Us

Personal data such as your name, your address, telephone number, or electronic mail address are not collected unless you provide this data voluntarily.

We call your attention to the fact that transferring data in the Internet (for example, during communication by electronic mail) is subject to security breaches. It is not possible to completely protect such data against access by third parties.

Inquiries and Contracts

Insofar as you have made personal data available to us, we use these solely for the purpose of technically administering the website and fulfilling your wishes and requests, in particular for processing a contract made with you, or for answering your inquiry.

If you have made inquiries through our contact form, the information from the contact form, including the contact data you have entered into the form, will be saved by us to process your inquiry and in the event of follow-up questions. The basis of law for this is Article 6 Section 1 Letter b of the General Data Protection Regulation (pre-contractual measures and performance of the contract).

Forwarding, selling, or otherwise transferring your personal data to companies outside the Crespel & Deiters Group does not occur; excepting that:

  • This is necessary to conclude the contract. Thus it can be necessary, for example, that for product orders, your address and order data are forwarded to our suppliers.
  • You have previously consented to it.

The basis of law for this is Article 6 Section 1 Letter b of the General Data Protection Regulation (performance of the contract) and Article 6 Section 1 Letter a of the General Data Protection Regulation (consent).

Other Advertising and Customer Relations Management

Without your permission, we use personal data only within the legally permitted scope; that means, for customer relations management and sending advertisements by mail. We do not use your electronic mail address, fax number, or telephone number for advertisements without your express consent. The basis of law for this is Article 6 Section 1 Letter f of the General Data Protection Regulation (protection of legitimate interests).

You can object to the use of your data for the purpose of direct marketing at any time and then will not receive further advertisements from us.

Duration of Storage

We delete your data if they are no longer needed after processing an inquiry or termination of the contract. Excluded from this are data which we are not yet allowed to delete due to legal obligation (e.g., documents which are to be retained according to tax law and commercial law) and data which we need to represent legitimate interests; in particular, for asserting claims or for direct marketing.

Your Rights

You have the following rights if the respective legal requirements are met:

  • You have the right to receive information about the personal data saved about you. (Article 15 GDPR).
  • You have the right to request the correction of incorrect information (Article 16 GDPR).
  • You have the right to request the deletion (Article 17) or restriction of processing (Article 18 GDPR) of data which is no longer required. Insofar as statutory retention obligations exist; e.g., for business correspondence under commercial law and tax law or another statutory exception, data will not be deleted, but only their processing will be restricted.
  • You may at any time object to the processing of your data for direct marketing purposes and, for special reasons, also to the further processing of your data (Article 21 GDPR).
  • You have the right to data transferability (Article 20 GDPR); that is, the right to request the data you have provided us in a structured, current, and machine-readable format and to transmit this data to another person responsible without our interference; if necessary, you also have the right to request that we transmit the data directly to another person responsible if this is technically feasible.

Right of objection: In accordance with Article 21 Section 2 GDPR, you may object to the processing of your data for direct marketing purposes at any time. The processing of your data will then be restricted to other purposes for which it is necessary, and will no longer be processed for direct marketing. Furthermore, you can also object to the additional processing of your data if there is a special reason.

To assert your rights, please contact the responsible party named above.

If you believe that the processing of your data violates data protection law, you can complain to a supervisory authority (Article 77 GDPR).
