Administration of cookies

Most browsers accept cookies automatically. However, you can reject or block the use of cookies by changing your browser settings. The method for deactivating cookies varies from browser to browser. Please note your browser’s ‘help function’. 

Google Analytics

Our web pages use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. ('Google'). Google Analytics uses cookies that support analysis of your use of our websites and the selective display of advertisements by means of retargeting / remarketing. The information generated by the cookie about your use of our websites will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the USA. Please note that on our websites the Google Analytics code is supplemented by “gat._anonymizeIp();” to ensure anonymized collection of IP addresses (so called IP-masking). Due to the activation of the IP anonymization on our websites, Google will truncate 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 will the full IP address be sent to and shortened by Google servers in the USA. On behalf of us, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the websites, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage to us. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google Analytics. You may prevent the installation of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser (see above). Furthermore, you can prevent Google’s collection and use of data generated by the cookie that relates to your use of our web pages (including your IP address) by downloading and installing the browser plug-in provided via the following link: tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout. You will find more information about this at www.google.com/intl/de/analytics/privacyoverview.html (general information on Google Analytics and data protection).

Retargeting / Remarketing

This website uses retargeting technologies that are operated by other providers (e.g. remarketing via the Google Display Network). By means of retargeting, users who have already shown interest in our brand and our products can be addressed with targeted advertising on our partners’ websites. On the basis of research results, we know that displaying personalized, interest-related advertising is more interesting for users than advertising that has no personal reference. With retargeting, the advertising is displayed on the basis of a cookie-based analysis of the user's previous actions. Self-evidently, no personal data are stored and equally self-evidently the retargeting technology is used in compliance with applicable data protection legislation. Should you not consent to the display of advertising in this form, you can disable cookies via your internet browser settings and/or delete existing cookies. You may also express non-consent with the cookie-based analysis with effect for the future by installing an opt-out cookie on your end device in accordance with the information that follows. No other use or forwarding to third parties takes place. 

Social Media (Facebook Pixel, YouTube etc.) 

Facebook, Google+ and YouTube 

This website implements social media plugins from Facebook and Google (Google+ and YouTube). This concerns functionality offered by the US-American companies Facebook and Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (‘Google’)). 

When you visit a page that contains such a plug-in, your browser establishes a connection with Facebook or Google and content is loaded from these pages. This means that your visit to this page can be tracked by Facebook and Google even if you do not actively use the function of the social plug-in. If you have an account with Facebook or Google, you can use such a social plug-in to share information with your friends. Hansa Armaturen GmbH has no influence regarding the content of the plugins and the transmission of information. 

Via the Facebook Pixel that we implement, Facebook receives the information that you have visited our page via your IP address, so it can associate the visit with your user account. We can use the information that ensues to place Facebook advertising. We hereby declare that we as provider of the pages receive no information regarding the content of the transmitted data, nor how they are used by Facebook. If you do not wish data to be gathered via Custom Audience, you can disable the function here. 

Facebook and Google provide detailed information as to the scope, type, purpose and further processing of your data on their websites. You will find more information regarding your rights and setting options for the protection of privacy.
