Collection of server data

Due to our legitimate interest, we collect data concerning access to this website, and store this as server log files on the website’s server.

We may collect (1) the type of browser and versions used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the website from where an accessing system has come across our website, (4) the subpages accessed on our website via the accessing system, (5) the date and time of access to the website, (6) an IP address, (7) the Internet service provider of the accessing system and (8) other similar data and information utilised to fend off danger in the case of attacks on our information technology systems.

When using this general data and information, WRH Global Americas, Inc. does not draw conclusions on the identity of the data subject. This information is in fact required (1) to correctly display the content of our website, (2) to optimise the content as well as the advertising relating to the website, (3) to guarantee the long-term functionality of our IT systems and the technology of our website and (4) to provide prosecution authorities with the information necessary for the prosecution in case of a cyber attack. This data and information is collected anonymously by WRH Global Americas, Inc. for statistical purposes and also processed in order to improve data protection and security in our company with the aim of providing an ideal level of protection for the personal data we process. The anonymous data from the server log files is stored separately from all personal data submitted by a data subject.


Contact form

Due to legal requirements, our website contains information enabling quick electronic establishment of contact to our company and direct communication with us. If you contact us via email or a contact form, the personal data transmitted by you will automatically be stored. Such personal data provided on a voluntary basis will be retained for processing or contacting purposes. These personal data will not be passed on to third parties. WRH Walter Reist Holding and its affiliated companies do not count among these third persons.


Cookies

In certain cases we use so-called cookies (see section on Google Analytics). Cookies are text files which are deposited and stored in a computer system via an Internet browser. You can prevent the placing of cookies via our website at any time by correspondingly setting the Internet browser, thus permanently objecting to the placement of cookies. Furthermore, cookies which have already been placed can be erased at any time via an Internet browser or other software programmes. This is possible in all conventional browsers. If you deactivate the use of cookies, you may not be able to utilise all features of this website to the full.


Google Analytics

We have included on this website the component Google Analytics (including an anonymisation function). Google Analytics is a web analysis service. Web analysis means the collection, compilation and evaluation of data concerning the behaviour of visitors of websites. A web analysis service collects, among other things, data which discloses which website a data subject comes from, which subpages have been accessed, and how often and for how long a subpage has been viewed. Web analysis is carried out mainly to optimise a website and to optimise the cost-benefit analysis of Internet advertising.

The operating company of Google Analytics components is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

For the web analysis via Google Analytics, we use the add-on "_gat._anonymizeIp". This allows Google to shorten and anonymise the IP address of the user’s Internet connection when our website is accessed from a member state of the European Union or from a signatory state of the Agreement on the European Economic Area.

The purpose of the Google Analytics components is to analyse the stream of visitors to our website. Google uses the data and information it has gained, for example, to assess your use of the website, to compile online reports for us about activity on our website, and to provide further services connected with the use of our website.

Google Analytics places cookies into the data subject’s IT system. The placement of cookies allows Google to analyse the use of our website. Every time an individual page on the website we operate and which includes a Google Analytics component is accessed, the Internet browser is called on by the particular Google Analytics components to automatically transfer data from the data subject’s IT system to Google for the purpose of online analysis. In connection with this technical procedure, Google receives information about personal data, such as the IP address of the data subject, allowing Google to determine the origin of the visitor and the clicks and, in the process, have access to commission settlements.

With help of these cookies, personal data is stored, including the period of access, the place from where access took place and how often a data subject has visited our website. With every access to our website, this personal data, including the IP address of the internet connection used by the data subject, is transmitted to Google in the USA. This personal data is stored by Google in the USA. Occasionally, Google transfers this personal data, which has been collected with the help of a technical operation, to third parties.

The data subject can prevent the placement of cookies by correspondingly setting the Internet browser, thus permanently objecting to the placement of cookies. This setting of the Internet browser in use also prevents Google from placing a cookie into the data subject’s IT system. You may also at any time delete a cookie which has already been placed by Google Analytics via the Internet browser or another software programme.

Beyond this, the data subject may withdraw the consent to the collection of the data, generated by Google Analytics, in relation to the use of this website, to the processing of this data by Google, and to prevent this from taking place. To do this, the data subject must download and install a browser add-on under the link  https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout This browser add-on tells Google Analytics via JavaScript that no data or information on visits to the website may be transferred to Google Analytics. The installation of the browser add-on is considered by Google to be an objection. If the data subject’s IT system is at a later stage deleted, formatted or reinstalled, the data subject must again install the browser add-on in order to deactivate Google Analytics. If the browser add-on is uninstalled or deactivated by the data subject or another person within his sphere of influence, reinstallation or reactivation of the browser add-on is possible.
