EXCON would like to thank you for your visit to this website and your interest in our services. To ensure that you feel secure and comfortable during your visit, we would like to inform you in the following about the handling of your data.
In order to improve the quality of our websites, we store data for statistical purposes concerning every access to our websites. This record consists of:
- The website from which the file was requested,
- The name of the file,
- The date and time of the request,
- The quantity of data transferred,
- The access status (file transferred, file not found),
- A description of the type of web browser used,
- The IP address of the requesting computer truncated to the last three digits.
This data is stored in anonymised form in accordance with the Telemedia Act (TMG). This prevents the creation of user profiles linked to individual persons.
Data transfer to third parties
We will only transfer the data we collect and store concerning you to third parties if we are legally entitled or required to do so (e.g. for contractual purposes or law enforcement purposes) or if you expressly request us to do so. In these cases, we strictly observe the provisions of the General Data Protection Regulation. The scope of data transfer is kept to a minimum.
We only collect personal data via our contact form if this is necessary for the purpose you would like to pursue (establishing contact). We will use your personal data to answer your inquiry. To use our contact form, we require your name and e-mail address. You can provide us with additional information, such as your company address, but you are not required to do so.
As our customer, you can also access data and evaluations for specific services online in a protected-access area. To do so, you will receive an individual username and password from us. We use this data exclusively to offer and provide our service.
On our website, we offer you the option of subscribing to our newsletter. For this purpose, we only require your e-mail address and your last name; also providing your first name is voluntary and will only be used for personalised contact in the newsletter. You can unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time, e.g. by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or by following the relevant link at the end of each newsletter.
To design our website based on user needs, we create pseudonymised usage profiles with the help of Google Analytics. Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, text files stored on your computer that make it possible to analyse your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is generally transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. Since we have activated IP anonymisation on this website, your IP address will be truncated by Google within the member states of the European Union or in other states party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area before transfer. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. Google will use this information to analyse your use of the website on our behalf, to compile reports about website activity and to perform other services associated with website use and internet use on our behalf.
You can object to the creation of this pseudonymised usage profile at any time. There are multiple ways to do so:
1.) One way to object against web analysis via Google Analytics is to set an opt-out cookie that instructs Google not to store or use your data for the purpose of web analysis. Please note that for this solution, web analysis will only be prevented as long as the opt-out cookie is stored by the browser. If you would like to set this opt-out cookie now, please click here.
2.) You can also prevent the storage of cookies used for profiling through corresponding settings in your browser software.
3.) Depending on the browser you use, you have the option of installing a browser plug-in that prevents tracking. To do so, please click here and install the browser plug-in available for download there.
For reasons of data privacy, we have consciously decided against embedding social plug-ins directly on our website. When you access our website, this means that as a rule, no data is transferred to providers of social media services. This prevents profiling by third parties. However, we do not want to deny this option to users who would prefer to use social plug-ins. For this reason, we offer you the option of activating these plug-ins in various places on our website. Please note that activating a social plug-in means that specific data may be transferred to the provider of the social media service. This data includes:
- The address of the website on which the activated social plug-in is located,
- Date and time of website access or activation of the social plug-in,
- Information about the browser and operating system used or your current IP address
If you are already logged in to the corresponding social media service at the time the social plug-in is activated, the provider will also be able to determine your username and potentially your real name from the data outlined above. We have no influence over the scope, nature and purpose of data processing conducted by this provider. Please note that providers of social media services are fully capable of creating pseudonymised or even individualised usage profiles using the data outlined above. After activating a social plug-in, you can deactivate it again at any time. However, this has no influence on the data that was previously transferred to the provider of the social media service.
You will know a social plug-in is deactivated if it is shaded grey or the corresponding switch is inactive (left position). No external content will be loaded and no data will be transferred. The first time you click the grey social plug-in or corresponding switch, it will be activated—the social plug-in will now be displayed in colour or the corresponding switch will be activated (right position). Now data will be transferred to the provider of the social media service. You may now use the social plug-in by clicking it again.
After activating a social plug-in, its state will be automatically stored for the website for the provider in question. For this purpose, a cookie will be stored for your browser, for instance Internet Explorer. You can find more information about cookies in the “Cookies” section. If you visit Excon’s website at a later point in time, the relevant social plug-in will be loaded in active mode and can be used without requiring reactivation. When the website loads, data will be directly transferred to the provider of the social media service. By clicking on the switch symbol to the left of the social plug-in in question, the active plug-in can be deactivated again at any time.
Your rights as a data subject
Furthermore, you have the right to restriction (blocking) of processing as well as objection against processing, and the right to file complaints with the competent supervisory authority (the Data Protection Supervisor of Hesse, PO Box 3163, 65021 Wiesbaden, e-mail: email@example.com).
