Datwyler is pleased that you have visited our website and are interested in our company. We would like you to feel that you are also in good hands when it comes to data protection. When collecting, processing and using your personal data we comply with data protection regulations, in particular the requirements of the German Federal Data Protection Act [Bundesdatenschutzgesetz (BDSG)] and the German Telemedia Act [Telemediengesetz (TMG)].
Collection and processing of personal data
Personal data are any data which allow you to be identified as an individual (e.g. name, address, telephone number, email address). They are only collected, processed and used by us within the framework of the provisions currently applicable when necessary for carrying out business transactions – which is particularly the case when you contact us using the contact form or register for our Newsletter.
Anonymised usage data
Whenever you visit our website we log your IP address (i.e. the internet address of your computer, not your email address) and other general usage data in order to assess which parts of our website you are visiting and how long you stay there. These data are combined with the usage data of everyone visiting our website in order to measure the number of visitors, the average time spent on our website, the pages viewed, etc. The data we collect will be used for internal purposes in line with our anonymisation procedure. It is impossible to trace anything back to you as an individual. We use this combined data to evaluate the products and services, including innovations, to which we provide access via our website, and to measure our website usage and on the whole improve its content. Our website usage data are in no way linked to personal data which could reveal anything about you.
Like many other websites Datwyler employs the technology known as “cookies" where appropriate to collect data about how you use the website, and to ensure that your visit goes smoothly. Our cookies neither disclose nor contain any personal data whatsoever. Cookies cannot read any information from your computer or interact with other cookies on your hard disk. But cookies do make it possible for us to recognise you again on a subsequent visit to our website. If you do not want your browser to accept cookies you can disable this feature in your browser settings. N.B.: turning off the cookie function can prevent this website from functioning properly. You may not be able to access all the features and information on this website.
We use Google Analytics on our page. Google Analytics, like many other visitor interaction analysis services, uses "first-party" cookies. These cookies store information. This includes, for example, the time the website was visited, the frequency with which the visitor accessed the website, and information on where the visitor was directed to the website. Browsers do not make "first-party" cookies accessible across domains.
You can stop the installation of cookies by setting your browser software appropriately. We would, however, draw your attention to the fact that in this case you may not be able to use the full range of functions on this website. By using this website you signify your agreement to the processing of the data collected on you by Google in the manner described above and for the aforementioned purpose.
Communication by email
Among other things we use emails to handle business operations, e.g. to provide services. In these cases we keep your email address on our database.
You can give your consent to receiving email newsletters. The Newsletters keep you regularly updated on news to do with Datwyler. The name of the recipient and the relevant email address is stored together with – and here only in the case of the Swiss Newsletter – company information. You can unsubscribe from the Newsletter at any time using the link given at the end of each Newsletter.
Transmission of data to third parties
Your data will not be passed to third parties. We will only disclose data to government agencies if required to do so by law.
Deletion of stored data
Personal data stays in our database until deleted. Deletion is effected at your request.
You can revoke your consent to the collection and processing of personal data with future effect at any time. In this connection please follow the instructions for deletion.
Right to information
As required by current legislation we will if requested inform you in writing of whether and which personal data relating to you is stored with us.
