Website Tracking

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. In case of activation of the IP anonymization, Google will truncate/anonymize the last octet of the IP address for Member States of the European Union as well as for other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases, the full IP address is sent to and shortened by Google servers in the USA. On behalf of the website provider Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website provider. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser. However, please note that if you do this, you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. Furthermore you can prevent Google’s collection and use of data (cookies and IP address) by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en-GB.

Social plugins

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.
