Data protection

Principles
The protection of your privacy is of the utmost importance to us. Therefore it goes without saying that we comply with statutory provisions for data protection. Our employees are obligated to treat all information confidentially and they receive regular training in the areas of data protection and data security. In the sections below, we would like to briefly explain how we protect your data and what it means for you when you make use of our online offers.

Access data
When our Internet pages are called up, Minitüb GmbH receives access data that is stored for protective purposes that basically allows us to identify you. This data includes

  • the name of your Internet service provider
  • the country you come from
  • the website you come from to visit us
  • the search term you use, if you come to our site via a search engine
  • the websites of ours that you visit
  • the user tool (web browser, operating system) you use to access us
  • files that you download from our site (e.g. PDF or Word documents)
  • the duration of your visit
  • the date and the time of your visit

This information is assessed by Minitüb GmbH and allows us to optimize our offerings as a whole and to personalize the content specifically for you, e.g. recognize you as a return visitor to our Internet offering. If you have an existing data set, the new data can be allocated to this data set in many cases. 

Personal data
Personal data is individual pieces of information about the personal or material circumstances of a specific or specifiable natural person. It includes information such as your name and your postal or e-mail address. The only time we save personal data in addition to your access data is if you give us this information voluntarily, e.g. as part of a contact inquiry or to process an online order. Moreover, personal data is used only to the extent necessary and only for the legally permissible purpose for which you gave your consent. To ensure the secure transmission of your data, Minitüb GmbH employs encryption procedures in secure areas. This means that communication between your browser and our order system, for instance, cannot be read by others on the Internet. 

Power of revocation
If you request in writing that Minitüb GmbH or the representative responsible for you correct, cease from using or delete your personal data, we shall of course do so immediately.

Collection of statistical data
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”).

In case of activation of the IP anonymization, Google will truncate/anonymize the last octet of the IP address for Member States of the European Union as well as for other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases, the full IP address is sent to and shortened by Google servers in the USA. On behalf of the website provider Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website provider. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser.
