a. Access data/ server log files

Schiedel GmbH & Co. KG collects log data every time the Website is accessed. Only technically required data are collected, i.e. the type and version of the browser, the user’s operating system, the referring URL (the website via which our Website was accessed), the date and time of access, the quantity of data transferred, the Internet Protocol address (IP address), and the Internet Service Provider of the accessing system. This information is kept by Schiedel GmbH & Co. KG for two weeks and then is deleted.

Schiedel GmbH & Co. KG will not  assign these data to specific persons or combine the data with other BMI Group data sources unless it is required to be able to provide law enforcement authorities with required information in the case of a cyber-attack. The data mentioned above are only used to provide Website content correctly, to optimize Website content and advertising and to ensure the long-term functionality of our IT systems and our Website technology. Schiedel GmbH & Co. KG therefore uses these data for both statistical purposes and to ensure data privacy and safety within the Company.

Data processing for the purposes mentioned above is carried out on the basis of the so-called balancing of interest clause of the GDPR (Art. 6(1) sentence 1 lit. f) GDPR).

b. Cookies and similar technologies

(1) Cookies

The Website uses cookies, which are small files that allow device-related information to be stored on user end devices (PCs, Smartphones, etc.). They make the Website more user-friendly, more efficient, and safer, and they in particular optimize our products and services for you and allow us to provide you with targeted information in the future. The Website uses so-called first party cookies, which are stored by us and third-party cookies, which are set by external providers to achieve certain purposes.

Most of the cookies used by Schiedel GmbH & Co. KG are “session cookies” that are automatically deleted when the Website visit ends. These cookies allow us to recognize your browser the next time you visit our Website.

At present, the Schiedel GmbH & Co. KG Website uses the following Cookies:

  • Google Tag Manager
  • YouTube
  • Double Click
  • Schiedel GmbH & Co. KG

Users can determine how these cookies are used. All current browsers have the option to limit or completely block the storage of cookies, generally, or only for certain websites. We point out, however, that the use and user-friendliness of our Website will be reduced if cookies are not allowed. Users can also manage many online advertising cookies via the United States website http://www.aboutads.info/choices or the European website http://www.youronlinechoices.com/uk/your-ad-choices/.

All user data (such as IP addresses, usernames, etc.) is stored anonymously to make personal identification impossible.

(2) Google Analytics

The Website uses functions provided by the web analytics service Google Analytics. The service provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA, 94043, USA (“Google”). Google Analytics uses cookies, described above, in the form of text files which are stored on your computer.  The information collected by cookies regarding use of our online products and services is generally transmitted to a Google server in the United States and stored there. However, if IP anonymisation is activated on the portal, Google will reduce your IP address within Member States of the European Union or in other countries party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area beforehand. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there.

Google uses this information on behalf of Schiedel GmbH & Co. KG to evaluate the use of the Schiedel GmbH & Co. KG online products and services, to prepare online product and service activity reports, and to perform other services for us related to the use of our online products and services and Website. Anonymized user profiles are then created based on the processed data.

The IP address provided by the user’s browser will not be combined with other Google data. Users can set their browser software to prevent the storage of cookies; users can also prevent the data collected by the cookie regarding use of our online products and services from being sent to and processed by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin using the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.

c. Newsletter

If you would like to receive the newsletter offered on the website, the Schiedel GmbH & Co. KG needs an email address from you. The registration takes place in the double-opt-in procedure, ie you will receive an e-mail after the registration in which you will be asked to confirm your registration. This is necessary so that nobody can log in with external e-mail addresses.

Registrations for the newsletter are also logged in order to prove the registration process in accordance with the legal requirements. This includes the storage of the login and the confirmation time, as well as the IP address. The collection of this data is necessary in order to be able to understand a misuse of the e-mail address at a later date and therefore serves the legal protection of the Schiedel GmbH & Co. KG.

Further data will not be collected for the purpose of sending the newsletter. We use this data exclusively for the distribution of advertising of products of the Schiedel GmbH & Co. KG and do not pass them on to third parties.

You can revoke your consent to the storage of data, the e-mail address and its use for sending the newsletter at any time, for example via a link in the newsletter. Your personal information will then be automatically deleted from the distribution system.
