Google analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc, (1600 Amphitheater Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA). Use includes the operating mode. This makes it possible to assign data, sessions and interactions across multiple devices to a pseudonymous user ID and thus analyze the activities of a user across devices.

Google Analytics uses so-called text files, which are saved on your computer and which enable an analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. By activating IP anonymization on this website, your IP address will be truncated by Google beforehand within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. The full IP address is only transferred to a Google server in the USA and abbreviated there in exceptional cases. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data. 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 the website operator with other services related to website and internet use. Our legitimate interest in data processing also lies in these purposes. The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is Section 15 (3) TMG and Article 6 (1) lit. f GDPR. The data sent by us and linked with cookies, user IDs (e.g. user ID) or advertising IDs will be automatically deleted after 14 months. Data whose retention period has expired is automatically deleted once a month.

Contact form and newsletter
If you send us inquiries via the contact form or receive our short messages, your details from the form will be saved by us for the purpose of processing the request and in the event of follow-up questions. We will not pass on this data without your consent, unless this is necessary to process your request or order.

The processing of the data entered in the contact form takes place exclusively on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR). You can withdraw this consent at any time. An informal notification by email to us is sufficient. The legality of the data processing operations carried out before the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

Matomo
This site uses Matomo to analyse traffic and help us to improve your user experience. We use cookies, which are stored on your browser for 13 months. These data are only processed by us and our web hosting platform based in Germany.

Data security

We make every effort to protect the data of our customers and users of our website from unauthorized access and from unauthorized changes, disclosure or destruction.

SSL and TLS encoding
For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or inquiries that you send to us as the site operator, this site uses an SSL or. TLS encryption. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from “http: //” to “https: //” and by the lock symbol in your browser line.

If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data that you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.

Further data security measures

  • We regularly review our collection, storage and processing practices, including physical security measures, to protect against unauthorized access to systems.
  • We secure all data from loss by using suitable storage media.
  • We limit access to personal data to employees and service providers from Schmidt Mess- und Regeltechnik, who must know the data in order to process this data for us. These employees and service providers are subject to strict confidentiality obligations, are subject to disciplinary measures or can be terminated if they do not meet these obligations.

We would like to point out that data transmission over the Internet (e.g. when communicating by email) can have security gaps. It is not possible to completely protect data from third-party access.

No data transfers to third parties
Your data will not be transmitted to third parties unless we are legally obliged to do so or we use your data to process your order. As far as external service providers come into contact with your personal data, we have taken legal, technical and organizational measures as well as regular checks to ensure that they comply with the provisions of data protection laws.

Your data will only be transferred to a country outside the EU if you provide us with a contact address, billing address or delivery address outside the EU.
