Just like many other websites, this site actively collects information from visitors by asking certain questions and by giving visitors the opportunity to communicate with us directly by e-mail. The information thus provided may contain personal data (i.e. information that can be traced back directly to your person, such as your name, address, e-mail address, telephone number, etc.).
Providing particular information may sometimes be a condition in order to take advantage of certain benefits (such as e-mail notifications or subscriptions to press releases). Whenever we request such data, we will tell you what kind of data is involved and why we need it.
The data will only be used for the purpose for which you provided and/or submitted it. For example, if you are requesting information or want to receive a quotation, the data will be used for that purpose.
When you navigate through a website, certain information may be collected passively (i.e. without you actively providing information) by means of various technological tools, such as Internet Protocol addresses, cookies, Internet labels and navigation data.
This site uses Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. An IP address is a number which your Internet Service Provider assigns to your computer when granting you access to the Internet. In general, an IP address is not regarded as part of your personal data, since an IP address is normally dynamic (it changes whenever you connect to the Internet) rather than static (pertaining to a particular user's computer). We use your IP address in order to collect statistics that give us insight into the number of visitors to our website and the pages viewed.
A ‘cookie’ is a piece of information that a website sends to your web browser so as to enable the site in the future to remember certain information and preferences from earlier visits.
‘Session cookies’ are temporary cookies that are deleted as soon as you close your web browser or turn off your computer. These cookies are used in order to improve website navigation and collect statistical information. ‘Persistent cookies’ are cookies of a more permanent nature, which are stored on the hard disk of your computer and will remain there unless you delete them. Persistent cookies are also used with a view to retrieving information provided earlier (such as passwords), finding out which parts of the website visitors consider most valuable and adjusting the website to your preferences. On this site, cookies are used primarily in order to store your standard preferences.
Both types of cookie may be functional or may involve third-party cookies. Some cookies require permission from you as the user while others do not. Our Cookie Statement contains more information about cookies.
You can set your browser in such a way that you are notified when you receive a cookie, whereupon you decide whether to allow the cookie. Alternatively, you can set your browser in such a way that all cookies are blocked, but please be aware that this may restrict the use of our website or services.
Further details about cookies in general can be found on www.cookiecentral.com/faq.
We may disclose your personal data if we are obliged to do so pursuant to statutory provisions, a court order or a government decision.
If you sign up to receive press releases by e-mail, we will need your e-mail address. This address will only be used for the purpose of informing you in the manner indicated on the website. If you wish to be removed from the press release mailing list, you can do so at any time in accordance with the instructions set out in every e-mail you receive.
To ensure that your personal data remains accurate, up-to-date and complete, you can contact us regarding any incorrect data. In that case, we will update or correct the personal data in our possession with which you provided us earlier via this website, and where necessary and possible remove them. A request to this can be submitted via: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We take all reasonable measures to protect the submission of personal data from your computer to our site, and to protect this information against loss, misuse and unauthorised access, dissemination, alteration or destruction. Please note, however, that Internet traffic is never 100% safe or fault-proof, which applies in particular to sending e-mails from and to this site. Therefore, you must carefully consider what information you send to us by e-mail.
Furthermore, it is your own responsibility to keep secret and protect passwords, identification numbers and other access modalities.
