Collection and processing of personal data

When you visit our website, by default we store the name of your Internet service provider, the website that linked you to our website, the pages you visit on our site, as well as the data and duration of your visit. AVENTICS uses cookies and active components (e.g., JAVA Script) to follow the preferences of visitors and to optimize the pages accordingly. You can disable cookies in your browser settings. Please note that some functions on the website may no longer be available if you do so. Beyond that, personal data is only saved if you provide it voluntarily, e.g., as part of a registration, survey, contest, or contract execution.

In order to participate in many features, services and/or programs of this website, we may require that you provide us with certain specific information, such as your full name, company information, mailing address, telephone number, e-mail address, and/or other information specific to you.

We use reasonable precautions to protect the privacy of your UserID, password and User Account information by utilizing an SSL connection. Accordingly, your UserID, password and User Account information are encrypted using an SSL connection and are not expected to be read in an intelligible form as they travel to this website. You, however, are ultimately responsible for protecting your UserID, password and User Account information from disclosure to third parties, and you are not permitted to circumvent the use of required encryption technologies. You agree to: (a) immediately notify AVENTICS of any unauthorized use of your UserID, password and/or User Account, and/or any other breach of security, and (b) ensure that you exit from your User Account at the end of each session.

The IP address communicated by your browser within the scope of Google Analytics will not be associated with any other data held by Google. You may choose to prevent cookies being saved by selecting the appropriate settings in your browser; however, please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. You can also prevent the transmission of data generated by cookies related to your use of the website (including your IP address) to Google as well as processing of this data by Google by going to the following link (http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en) to download and install the Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on.

Google Network, Remarketing and DoubleClick

Google uses a DoubleClick cookie on websites in the Google Network and for specific Google services, in order to support AdWords customers and publishers with placing and managing advertisements on the web. When you access a website and display or click on an advertisement placed via a website in the Google Network, a DoubleClick cookie may be placed in your browser. The DoubleClick cookie identifier assigned to your browser is the same as that used when visiting websites in which the DoubleClick advertising program is used. If your browser already has a DoubleClick cookie, another DoubleClick cookie will not be attached.

Further information about the use of DoubleClick cookies in conjunction with the advertising program from DoubleClick can be found in the DoubleClick Privacy FAQ section.

Further, this website uses Remarketing with Google Analytics for online advertising. This includes the use of cookies by third parties, including Google. Through the combined use of first-party cookies (e.g., Google Analytics cookies) and third-party cookies (e.g., DoubleClick cookies), advertisements can be presented to you, as well as optimized and evaluated, based on your previous visits to this website.

With the aid of Remarketing, information about your surfing behavior is collected and saved in an anonymized form for marketing purposes (targeting/retargeting). This data is saved on our computer with the aid of cookies. Using an algorithm, targeted product recommendations can be displayed to you as personalized advertising banners on other websites (publishers). This data cannot be used to identify you personally as a visitor to this website. The data collection is used only for improving the service.

Google Tag Manager

This website uses Google Tag Manager, meaning website tags can be managed in one interface. The Google Tag Manager tool itself (which implements the tags) is a cookie-less domain and does not record any personal data. The tool triggers other tags that record data in some circumstances. Google Tag Manager does not access this data. If a deactivation was made on a domain or cookie level, this remains in place for all tracking tags that are implemented with Google Tag Manager.

Consent

By using or accessing this website or placing an order with AVENTICS, you consent to the collection and use of information by us as specified above or as we otherwise see fit unless you inform us otherwise by means of the procedure identified below. If we decide to change this Privacy Policy, we will make an effort to post those changes on this web page so that you will always be able to understand what information we collect, how we use that information and under what circumstances we may disclose that information to others. We may use comments, information or feedback that you may submit in any manner that we may choose without notice or compensation to you.

If you have additional questions or comments of any kind, if you see anything on this website that you think is inappropriate or if you would like to have any or all of your personal information withheld from third party organizations and companies and/or from third party service providers, please let us know by e-mail or by sending your comments or requests to:
