1. Collection and processing of data

Every access to our website and every retrieval of a file stored in our website is placed on record for internal system-related and statistical purposes. The data logged are:  name of the retrieved file, date and time of the retrieval, quantity of data transmitted, registration of successful retrieval, web browser and enquiring domain.

Data of greater extent are only collected if you provide such information voluntarily – for example when registering or making an enquiry.

2. Use and transfer of personal data

If you have provided us with personal data we will only use them for answering an enquiry, for executing a contract concluded with you and for technical administration.

Your personal data will only be passed on to third parties or otherwise transmitted if this is necessary for the purpose of executing a contract – in particular for the transfer of order data to suppliers – or if it is necessary for invoicing purposes or if you have given your prior consent. You have the right to revoke at any time, with effect for the future, consent that has been granted.

The stored personal data will be deleted if and when you revoke your consent to storage, when knowledge of the data is no longer necessary for the purpose pursued by the storage or if storage of your data is unlawful for any other statutory reasons.

3. Right to information, consent, right of revocation, right to object

4. Security aspects

We endeavour to use all available technical and organisational means to store your personal data in such a way that they are not accessible to third parties. We cannot guarantee total data security in the case of communication by email, and we therefore recommend that confidential information be sent by post.

5. Plug-ins of social networks, in particular facebook

Our website contains social network programs (plug-ins), which are operated exclusively by the providers of the relevant social networks. The plug-ins identify themselves, when they appear on our website, via the logo of the respective social network.

When you visit a page of our website that contains a plug-in of this kind, a direct connection is made to the servers of the respective network operator. The effect of this is that the information that you have visited our website is passed on to the respective operator.

If during the visit to our website you are logged in via your personal user account, the respective operator can attribute your visit to that account. Any form of interaction with plug-ins, e.g. by clicking on "Like it" Facebook buttons or entering a comment, means that the resulting information is passed on direct to the respective operator, where it is stored.
If you wish to prevent such transmission of data, you must log out under your social network operator holding account before you visit our website.

For the purpose and scope of the collection of data by the respective operator, the further processing and use of your data by network operators and the relevant rights and setting options for the protection of your privacy, please see the data protection notice provided by the operator of the social network which you use.

6. Google analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics employs co-called "cookies", text files which are stored on your computer and enable analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie on your use of the website is as a rule transmitted to a Google server in the USA, where it is stored. On behalf of the operator of the website, Google uses the said information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activities and to perform further services for the website operator connected with the use of the website and the internet. The IP address transmitted by your browser during the Google Analytics activity is not conjoined with other Google data.

You can prevent the storage of the cookies by using the appropriate setting of your browser software; we must however point out that in this case you may possibly not be able to make full use of all the functions offered on our website. You can also prevent the transmission to Google of the data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (incl. your IP address) and the processing of said data by Google by downloading and installing the plug-in available under the following link: Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on

Note: In view of the debate on the use of analysis tools with complete IP addresses we wish to state that this website uses Google Analytics with the add-on "_anonymizelp()" and that therefore IP addresses are only processed in abbreviated form, so as to eliminate any direct tracking to a specific person.

DTE Systems uses the retargeting technology of DoubleClick-Remarketing-Pixel, a service of Google Inc ("Google"). Users can opt out of the DoubleClick-Remarketing-Pixel by accessing the “Deaktivierungsseite” for DoubleClick or the “Deaktivierungsseite der Netzwerkwerbeinitiative” .
