Data protection statement
The protection of your privacy and personal data is extremely important to us, including within the context of our websites.
Our data protection activities conform to the provisions of the EU Data Protection Directive, the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and other data protection regulations.
The MANN+HUMMEL websites contain links to websites of other providers that are not covered by this data protection statement.
This website uses etracker technology (www.etracker.com) to collect data on visitor behavior. The data is collected anonymously for use in optimization. All visitor data is saved using an anonymous user ID and can be used to aggregate a usage profile. Cookies may be used for this purpose. Cookies are small text files that are stored in the visitor’s local browser cache. It is possible to use these cookies to recognize a visitor’s browser. The data collected by the etracker technology will not be used to determine the personal identity of a website visitor, and will not be compiled with personal data relating to the person referred to by the pseudonym, unless agreed to separately by the person concerned. The collection and storage of data may be revoked at any time with respect to future services.
MANN+HUMMEL makes use of social plugins for social networking sites such as Facebook, Google+ and Twitter. These plugins appear as buttons in the MANN+HUMMEL websites.
Plug-ins for the social media network Facebook (Facebook Inc., 1601 Willow Road, Menlo Park, California, 94025, USA) are integrated on our website. You can identify the Facebook plug-ins by the Facebook logo or by the ‘Like’ button on our site. Further information is available in the Facebook privacy statement under http://de-de.facebook.com/policy.php
Functions for Twitter are also included. These functions are provided by Twitter Inc., Twitter Inc. 1355 Market St., Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA. Further information is available in the Twitter privacy statement under http://twitter.com/privacy
The plug-in ‘google+1’ (Google Plus) integrated on our website is provided and operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States (hereinafter referred to as: Google). You can identify this button by the ‘+1’ symbol on a white background. Information on the purpose and scope of data collection, also subsequent use of data by Google Inc., is available from that company’s privacy statements. You will find this website under the URL http:///www.google.com/intl.de/+/policy/+1button.html
By default, these buttons are deactivated, which means that no data is forwarded to third parties. Before you can use the buttons, you must click to activate them. The buttons will remain active until they are deactivated again or until the cookies in your browser are deleted (see info on cookies). When you activate a button, a direct connection is established with the server of the relevant social networking site. The social networking sites then transfer the button content directly to your browser, which integrates this into the website.
Please note that MANN+HUMMEL has no control over the nature and scope of the data that social networking sites collect through their buttons. For details of the scope and purpose of data collection and how the data is subsequently processed and used by the respective social networking sites, as well as for details of your associated rights and the setting options that are available for protecting your privacy, please refer to the data protection notices of the respective social networking sites.
Once a button has been activated, the respective social networking site can still collect data even if you have not actually pressed the button. If you are logged into a social networking site, it can record your visit to this web page and link it to your user account. A social networking site can only record visits to other MANN+HUMMEL web pages if you have activated the relevant button on those pages as well.
If you are a member of a social networking site but do not want the data stored for you as a member to be linked to the data that is collected during your visit to our web pages, you must log out of the relevant social networking site before activating the buttons.
