Ingenics AG privacy policy

We appreciate your visit to our Web site and your interest in our company. Data protection is of great importance to the management of Ingenics AG (referred to in the following as "Ingenics", "we", or "us"). Protection of user data and compliance with data protection regulations are of the utmost importance to us.


In principle, use of our Web site is possible without any personal data being provided. Ingenics collects, stores, and processes your personal data only if this is permitted on the basis of statutory regulations or if you have granted consent for this. No data are transmitted to third parties without your express consent.

Processing of personal data, such as the name, address, e-mail address, or telephone number of a person is always performed in conformance with the Basic Regulation on Data Protection and in compliance with the locally applicable national data protection regulations to which Ingenics is subject.

Please note that data transfer within the Internet (such as e-mail communication) can be subject to security breaches. Complete protection of data from access by third parties is not possible.

 

Cookies

Ingenics AG Internet pages use cookies. Cookies are text files which are transfered to a computer system via an Internet browser and stored there. Cookies cause no harm and contain no viruses. Countless Internet Web sites and servers use cookies. Most of the cookies used by us are so-called "session cookies". These are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your device until you delete them. A particular Internet browser can be recognized and identified from the unique cookie ID.

You can prevent the placing of cookies by our Web site at any time by making the necessary setting on the Internet browser you are using, thus permanently deactivating the placing of cookies. Also, cookies already placed can be deleted at any time via an Internet browser or other software program.

The use of cookies makes it possible for us to provide more user-friendly services to the users of this Web site which would not be possible without the placing of cookies.

 

Google Analytics

This Web site uses Google Analytics, a Web analysis service of Google Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics uses what are called "cookies", text files which are stored on your computer and which make it possible to analyze your use of our Web site. The information on your use of this Web site which is generated by the cookies (including your IP address) is transmitted via a server to Google in the USA and stored there. Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the Web site, to compile reports on Web site activity for the Web site operator, and to provide other services connected with Web site and Internet use. Google will also transmit these data to third parties provided this is prescribed by law or provided the third parties process these data on behalf of Google. In no case will Google establish a connection between your IP address and other data.

 

Browser plug-in

You can prevent the installation of cookies by making the necessary setting in your browser software; we inform you, however, that in this case you may not be able to use all the functions of this Web site to their full extent. By using this Web site you agree to the processing of the data collected on you by Google in the manner described above and for the purpose stated above.

 

IP anonymization

We have activated the IP anonymization function on this Web site. This means that, within member states of the European Union or within other states party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area, Google abbreviates your IP address before it is transmitted to the USA.

If you do not wish Google to receive data from your browser when you access the site, you can use the following link to opt out of Google Analytics: tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout, this plug-in prevents the browser from requesting the Analytics code, with the result that Google does not receive any data when the page is accessed. The plug-in is available only for Internet Explorer 7 and 8, Firefox 3.x, and for Google Chrome. According to Google the browser blocks the Google Analytics script after installation.

You can find further information on terms of use and data protection at http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html or http://www.google.com/intl/de/analytics/privacyoverview.html. Please note that on this Web site Google Analytics has been enhanced with the code "gat._anonymizeIp();" in order to ensure the anonymized collection of IP addresses (this is known as IP masking).

 

Google AdWords

Ingenics uses Google Conversion Tracking, an analysis service of Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; „Google"). This service involves the placing of a cookie (called a "conversion cookie") on your computer by Google AdWords if you have accessed our Web site via a Google advertisement. These cookies lose their validity after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. If you visit certain of our pages before this cookie has expired, we and Google can see that someone has clicked on the ad and thus been redirected to our Web site. The information collected using the conversion cookie serves the purpose of compiling conversion statistics on those who have agreed to conversion tracking. These statistics show us the total number of users who have clicked on our ad and were redirected to a page containing a conversion tracking tag. However, we do not obtain any information with which a user could be personally identified.

If you do not wish to participate in tracking you can opt out by making the necessary setting in your browser software (deactivation option) to prevent the installation of these cookies. You will then not be included in the conversion tracking statistics.
