6 Protection of minors
As a rule, children and persons under the age of 18 should not submit any personal data to us without the consent of their parents or guardians. We do not knowingly solicit personal information from children and persons under the age of 18, and we ensure that we will not knowingly collect, use or disclose any personal information from children and persons under the age of 18 in an unauthorized way.
7 Transmission of data via the Internet
The Internet is a globally open platform. Due to the Internet's own mode of operation and systemic risks, all data transfers initiated by you are at your own risk. Other conditions apply only if we offer you an encrypted transmission path.
10 Web analytics
This website uses functions of the web analytics service Google Analytics. The provider of these services is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
Google Analytics uses so-called "cookies". These are text files that are stored on your computer and that allow an analysis of the use of the website by you. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there.
10.1 Objection to data collection
You can prevent the storage of cookies by a corresponding setting of your browser software. However, please note that by doing so, you may not be able to use all the features of this website to the fullest extent possible.
In addition, you may prevent the collection of the data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) by Google as well as the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available under the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en
10.2 Order data processing
We have concluded an agreement with Google for order data processing and fully implement the strict requirements of the German data protection authorities when using Google Analytics.
10.3 IP anonymization
We use the function "Activation of IP anonymization" on this website. As a result, within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area your IP address will be truncated by Google before being sent for storage. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the US and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity, and to provide other services related to website activity and internet usage to the website operator. The IP address provided by Google Analytics as part of Google Analytics (from your browser) will not be combined with other Google data.
11 Social media plugins
The website of HEMSCHEIDT may use third-party content (so-called plug-ins). These can take the form of YouTube videos, RSS feeds or graphics of other sites or through social media buttons, such as the Facebook “Share” button.
If you are on a HÜBNER website where third-party content is involved, it may happen that under certain circumstances a connection with the respective social network will be established in the background. This allows the transfer of the content of the buttons to your browser and from the browser to the website. This means that the respective provider always receives the information that you have called up the HEMSCHEIDT website. For this, it does not matter if you are a member of a social network or if you are logged in. Furthermore, regardless of whether you actually interact with the content involved, information is automatically collected through the social network.
When this occurs, the following data can be transmitted:
- IP address,
- browser information and operating system,
- screen resolution,
- installed browser plugins (e.g. Adobe Flash Player),
- origin of the visitor (from which page you have been linked to the HEMSCHEIDT website),
- URL of the current page.
If you are logged in to one of the social networks while using the HEMSCHEIDT website, the information about accessing the website may be linked to your member data and stored. If you are a member of a social network and do not want this data to be transferred, you must log out of the social network before visiting the HEMSCHEIDT website.
If you use one of the plugins – for example, by commenting or using the share button – the provider can assign your accessing of the website directly to your profile. These data are transmitted directly to the social network, stored there and are used for profiling about you.
Furthermore, the corresponding information will be published in the respective social networks and showed to your contact persons.
HEMSCHEIDT has no influence on the extent of the data collected through the social networks. The nature, scope and purpose of the data collection, information about the further processing of the data as well as their respective rights and setting options for the protection of your privacy can be found in the privacy regulations of the respective social network.
You also have the option of blocking social media plugins with add-ons in your browser and thus preventing data transmission.
