Privacy statement

Scope
This privacy statement informs users about the nature, scope, and purpose of the collection of personal data on this website operated by Refratechnik Holding GmbH, Adalperostrasse 82, 85737 Ismaning, Germany, Phone +49 89 96107 200, Fax +49 89 96107 222, holding@refra.com (referred to as “Supplier” hereinafter)

The legal basis for data protection is given in the Bundesdatenschutzgesetz (Federal Data Protection Act) and the Telemediengesetz (German Teleservices Act).

Liability for links
Our website contains links (referrals) to external websites, whereby we have no influence on the content of these third-party websites. Therefore, we cannot be held liable for such third-party contents. The sole responsibility for the contents of such linked (referred) websites lies with the owner/operator of said websites. At the time the link to the referred pages was made, those pages were checked for possible illegal content. No illegal content was found at that time. However, without specific evidence for illegal content, continuous monitoring of linked (referred) websites is unreasonable. As soon as we are informed about such a breach of law, we will remove the relevant link without delay.

Access data / server logfiles
The Supplier (or his web space provider) collects data about every access to our website (so-called server logfiles). This access data includes:

Name of the visited website, file, date, and time of the visit, amount of data transferred, indication of a successful visit, browser type and version, the userʻs operating system, referrer URL (the previously accessed website), IP address, and the requesting provider.

This access data is used by the Supplier only for statistical evaluation and for the purpose of operating, protecting, and optimizing of the website contents. However, the Supplier retains the right to check such access data subsequently, if there are specific indications to suspect illegal use.

Use of personal data
Personal data covers all information that enables a person to be identified, i.e. information that can be traced back to an individual person. Such data also includes a name, an eMail address or a telephone number. But also information about preferences, hobbies, memberships, or which websites have been visited is considered as personal data.

The Supplier will only collect, make use of, and pass personal data to third parties, insofar as this is legally permitted or the user has given his/her consent.

Contact
When contacting the Supplier (e.g. via contact form or eMail), the userʻs contact data will be stored for the purpose of processing the inquiry and in case of further questions.

Comments and contributions
If visitors enter comments in our blog or make other contributions, their IP addresses will be stored. This is done for the Supplierʻs safety, in case someone posts comments or contributions with illegal contents (insults, forbidden political propaganda, etc.). In such cases, the Supplier can be held liable for the comment or contribution, and is therefore interested in the posterʻs identity.

Newsletter
Our newsletter informs you about our company and our offers.

If you wish to receive our newsletter, we require a valid eMail address as well as information that enables us check that you are the owner of the specified eMail address or that its owner consents to receiving our newsletter. No further data will be collected. These data are used exclusively for mailing the newsletter, and will not be passed on to third parties.

When registering for our newsletter, we will store your IP address and the date of registration. The sole purpose of this is identification in case a third party misuses an eMail address to register for our newsletter without the knowledge of the eMail address owner.

You can withdraw your consent to the storage of your data, the eMail address, and the use of this data for mailing the newsletter at any time. Withdrawal can be implemented via a link in the newsletters, in your profile area, or by a message via the contact possibilities indicated above.

Inclusion of services and contents provided by third parties
It is possible that this website includes contents from third parties, such as videos from YouTube, material from Google maps, RSS feeds or images from other websites. This always assumes that the suppliers of such contents (called “third supplier” hereinafter) will know the userʻs IP address, because without the IP address, they would be unable to transfer the contents to the respective userʻs browser. Consequently, the IP address is required for the representation of such contents. We attempt to use such content only from third suppliers who only use the IP address to transfer their content. However, we have no control of whether a third supplier stores the IP address, e.g. for statistical purposes. As soon as we know about this, we will inform the users accordingly.

Cookies
Our website makes use of cookies. Cookies are small text files that are stored in your PC or smartphone via your browser. The information stored in the cookies helps us make our services safer and more user-friendly (e.g. to store your login data). In addition, the data are evaluated statistically so that we can continuously improve and optimize our website. Users can decide how and whether cookies are stored. Most browsers provide an option that limits or completely prevents cookies. However, if you donʻt accept cookies, this can result in functional restrictions of the offers on our website.

The US website http://www.aboutads.info/choices/ and the European website http://www.youronlinechoices.com/uk/your-ad-choices/ permit many online advertising cookies to be controlled.
