Privacy Policy

General

Nanotec Electronic GmbH & Co. KG places utmost importance on the protection of your privacy as a user. This applies, in particular, to the processing of personal data. You do not need to disclose any personal data to use our website. In certain cases, however, we require your name and address so that we may process your order. We will inform you accordingly where this is necessary. Furthermore, we only store and process data that you provide to us voluntarily or automatically. 

Collecting and processing data

Records are kept of all visits to our website and of all files downloaded or accessed through the website. This includes: the names of the accessed files, the date and time the files were accessed, the volume of data transferred, notification of successful access, web browser, and requesting domain. Data is stored for internal statistical purposes. The IP addresses of the computers used to make the requests are also recorded. More in-depth personal data is only collected if you provide this information voluntarily, such as in the context of an inquiry, order, or registration.

Using and disclosing personal data

The personal data that you provide to us is handled confidentially and is only disclosed to third parties when necessary for the purpose of processing an order, e.g., disclosing order data to suppliers. Under no circumstances will we lease or sell your personal data or data related to your person. Your personal data is only used for the purpose of processing your orders, for answering your questions, and for the internal creation of anonymous statistics. The sole exceptions are the services requested by you that include consent for the use of your additional data as well as the disclosure of your data to government bodies or public authorities as required by law. We will disclose the data collected and stored with your consent within the scope of contractual agreements to business partners provided this is necessary in your interest. Our business partners are, of course, required and obliged to adhere to the statutory data protection provisions. Any advertisements for other companies that appear on our website are identified as such. In its ruling from May 12, 1998, "Liability for Links" (312 O 85/98), the Hamburg District Court clearly decided that the inclusion of linked content on a website may constitute co-responsibility, i.e., may make one liable. This can only be prevented by expressly disassociating oneself from such content, which Nanotec Electronic GmbH & Co. KG hereby does. Nanotec Electronic GmbH & Co. KG will not pass on any data to non-EU countries without your consent unless it is necessary for conducting business and is expressly permitted by the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG).

Right to information and right of objection 

In cases where it was necessary for you to grant permission for us to use your personal data, you can revoke this permission at any time by sending a letter to Nanotec Electronic GmbH & Co. KG, Kapellenstraße 6, 85622 Feldkirchen, Germany, or an email to info@nanotec.de. 

Deletion of personal data

Any stored personal data will be deleted if the user of the website and/or customer revokes their consent for the storage of their data, if knowledge of the data is no longer necessary for the purpose for which it was stored, or if the storage of the data is no longer permissible for other legal reasons. Data related to billing and accounting is not affected by this.

Piwik web analysis service 

We use the Piwik analysis tool to help improve the quality and enhance the user-friendly design of our website. Piwik is a statistical program that anonymously records the use of our web pages. In this context, we also use so-called cookies, which are small text files that are stored on your computer. The cookies cannot be associated with any specific persons. An individual profile on your usage behavior is not created. The information gathered on your use of this website is stored on our own server in Feldkirchen. The IP address is anonymized immediately after it is processed and before it is stored. This is performed by means of the "AnonymizelP" plugin made available by Piwik. You can decide whether a unique web analysis cookie may be stored in your browser to enable the operator of the website to record and analyze various pieces of statistical data. If you decide against allowing the cookie to be stored, please press the "Opt-out" button on our privacy policy page.

Google Analytics

This website also uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. ("Google") with the additional function "AnonymizeIP". This means that IP addresses are not stored in full, but rather in abbreviated form, thereby making it impossible to directly determine the identity of the person. Google Analytics also uses cookies. The information created by cookies regarding your use of this website (including your IP address) is transferred to and stored on a server operated by Google in the USA. Google uses this information to analyze how you use this website, to compile reports on the website activities for the website operators, and to perform other services associated with the use of the website and the Internet. If necessary, Google shares this information with third parties, provided this is legally required or if third parties process this data on behalf of Google. Google will never associate your IP address with other data. By using this website, you consent to the processing of the data collected about you by Google in the manner and for the purpose previously described. You can revoke your consent to the collection and storage of your data at any time and prevent the installation of cookies by making an appropriate setting in your browser software.

You can prevent Google Analytics from recording your data by clicking on the following link. An opt-out cookie is set that prevents your data from being recorded when you visit this website.

 

Bing Webmaster Tools

The Bing Webmaster Tools that are integrated in our website are used for search engine optimization and contain no personal data. You can find information about the collection, processing, and use of this service in the privacy policies of the Microsoft Corporation.

The Bing Webmaster Tools from Microsoft store one or more cookies on your computer. Bing uses a cookie with a unique identifier, also called a search ID, to perform this service and to activate certain search functions. These cookies are used by Microsoft to provide the Bing service and to offer a search environment with more relevant results. You can remove or block cookies in your browser settings.
In addition, Microsoft uses web beacons to store cookies and to create analyses. Web beacons may also be from third parties; these are not permitted to collect any personal data.

The information collected with the Bing services allows Microsoft to offer relevant search results. The collected information also serves to ensure and improve the quality, security, and integrity of the Microsoft services. This information is used, for example, for research and to improve the relevance of Bing search results. Microsoft also needs this information to detect security holes and to protect you from security threats, such as botnet attacks, click fraud, worms, and other threats.
