5. References and Links

For direct or indirect links to third party web pages (“links”) that lie outside the responsibility of KATHREIN Digital Systems GmbH, a liability would only come into effect if the author had knowledge of the content and it was technically possible and reasonable for him to prevent the use of illegal content.

KATHREIN Digital Systems GmbH has no influence whatsoever on the current and future design, content or authorship of the linked/connected pages. KATHREIN Digital Systems GmbH hereby expressly dissociates itself from the content of all linked/connected pages modified after the link was inserted. This applies to all links inserted on KATHREIN Digital Systems GmbH’s own website. KATHREIN Digital Systems GmbH assumes no liability for illegal, incorrect or incomplete content, and specifically for losses resulting from the use or failure to use such information. In this case, sole liability rests with the provider of the referred to sites and no liability is incurred by the party who merely refers to the respective publication via links.

7. Data Protection

7.1. General

It is our highest priority to protect customer data and to only use it the way our customers would expect us to. Compliance with statutory data protection regulations is therefore a matter of course for us.
KATHREIN Digital Systems GmbH is the body responsible for data protection.

7.2. Data Logging

When you call up our website, data is transferred to our web server over your Internet browser. When your Internet browser and our web server communicate, the following data is logged during a current session:
- date and time of inquiry or visit - name of the requested file
- web page from which access to the file was requested
- access status (file transmitted, file not found, etc.)
- web browser and operating system used

7.3. Google Analytics

We use Google Analytics – a service of Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses cookies for analysing website usage. The information generated by the cookie is usually transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. Google uses the data collected on behalf of KATHREIN Digital Systems GmbH to track website traffic, optimise the content and offer our users the best possible information about us and our products and solutions.
We only use Google Analytics with IP anonymisation activated. This means that Google anonymises your IP address within the area of Member States of the European Union or other contracting parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. The mapping of data is therefore not possible. Google uses the data on behalf of the operator of this website for evaluating website traffic, compiling usage reports on website activities and providing other services associated with website use.
The anonymised IP address your browser transfers within the scope of Google Analytics is not linked to any other Google data. You may refuse the storage of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings in your browser. http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout
You can prevent Google from collecting and processing data (including your IP address) generated by a cookie by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link (http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de).
You can also opt out from being tracked by Google Analytics by clicking on the following link. This sets an opt-out cookie which prevents the collection of data when you use our website:

7.6. Social Networks

Our website uses social plug-ins from several social networks, such as Xing, LinkedIn, Twitter and YouTube. The plug-ins are identifiable by a logo.
When you visit a website containing such plug-ins, these plug-ins can set up direct connections to the social network and possibly transmit data. There will be communication between the plug-ins, your browser/your mobile device and the social network. By integrating the plug-ins, the social networks receive information that you have accessed the respective page on our website. If you are logged into the social network, the social network can assign the visit to your account.
If you interact with the plug-ins and click the Share or Follow us button, the corresponding information is transmitted directly to the social network and stored there according to the privacy policy of the respective social network. For information on the purpose and scope of data collection and how the data is processed and used by the social network, as well as your rights in this respect and setting options for protecting your privacy, please visit the privacy policy of the respective social network.
If you do not want social networks to receive information about your visit to our website, please log off the social networks before visiting our website or using the app.

7.7. Cookies

Cookies are small pieces of data sent from our website which are then stored on your end device. These text files can be used to determine whether your end device has communicated with our website before. Only the cookie on your end device is identified. Personal data is not collected, unless you have agreed to this previously and if it is technically required, e.g. in order to enable a protected log-in.
By using our website, you allow us to use and store cookies on your end device. You can also visit our website without cookies. Most browsers accept cookies automatically. You can disable the storage of cookies on your end device by selecting “block all cookies” in your browser settings. Cookies that have been placed on your end device previously can be deleted from your end device at any time.

7.8. Electronic Mail (email)

Information that you send to us unencrypted by email can possibly be read by third parties during transmission. In general, we cannot check your identity and do not know the person behind an email address. Communication ensuring legal compliance is therefore not guaranteed by email.
We use filters against unwanted advertising (spam filters), which in rare cases also automatically classify normal emails as unwanted advertising and delete them.

7.9. Protection of Data

We use adequate technical and organisational data-protection measures (TOM) for protecting your personal data against manipulation, loss, destruction or access by third parties.

7.10. Right of Access to Personal Data and Revocation / Point of Contact

For any questions regarding the collection, processing or use of your personal data, or if you require information, want to update or delete data, or to revoke a given consent, please contact our data protection officer at info@kathrein-ds.com.
