Hartmann Electronic is interested in security in information processing and in ensuring that data and processes which involved people are treated with the necessary care. In view of the rapid developments in the field of information technology, we wish to react to the increased calls for security on the part of both people and companies. Our specific aim is to protect the individual rights of our customers, business partners and employees.

Please note that this website may contain links to other websites which are in no way connected to or affected by this data protection declaration.

Please be aware that data transfer via the internet is subject to security risks and, therefore, complete protection against third-party access to transferred data cannot be ensured.

General

Our website may be used without entering personal information. Different rules may apply to certain services on our site, however, and are explained separately below. We collect personal information from you (e.g. name, address, email address, telephone number, etc.) in accordance with the provisions of German data protection statutes. Information is considered personal if it can be associated exclusively to a specific natural person. The legal framework for data protection may be found in the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and the Telemedia Act (TMG). The provisions below serve to provide information as to the manner, extent and purpose for collecting, using and processing personal information by Hartmann Electronic.

Cookies

Our website makes use of so-called cookies in order to recognize repeat use of our website by the same user/internet connection subscriber. Cookies are small text files that your internet browser downloads and stores on your computer. They are used to improve our website and services. In most cases these are so-called “session cookies” that are deleted once you leave our website.

To an extent, however, these cookies also pass along information used to automatically recognize you. Recognition occurs through an IP address saved to the cookies. The information thereby obtained is used to improve our services and to expedite your access to the website.

You can prevent cookies from being installed by adjusting the settings on your browser software accordingly. You should be aware, however, that by doing so you may not be able to make full use of all the functions of our website.

Server Data

For technical reasons, data such as the following, which your internet browser transmits to us or to our web space provider (so called server log files), is collected: – type and version of the browser you use – operating system – websites that linked you to our site (referrer URL) – websites that you visit – date and time of your visit – your Internet Protocol (IP) address. This anonymous data is stored separately from any personal information you may have provided, thereby making it impossible to connect it to any particular person. The data is used for statistical purposes in order to improve our website and services.

Contacting Us

On our website we offer you the opportunity to contact us, either by email and/or by using a contact form. In such event, information provided by the user is stored for the purpose of facilitating communications with the user. No data is transferred to third parties. Nor is any of this information matched to any information that may be collected by other components of our website.

Use of your personal data from emails or entries

All personal data recorded on Hartmann Electronic’s website (e.g. your name and address or email address) are only stored and processed for the purpose of customer care, order processing, sending product information or information on offers. The personal data entered on this occasion will only be used to process your request without your specific consent.

Transfer of personal data

In the case of a contract in the form of a service or delivery of goods, your personal data will be passed on to the transport company or corresponding financial service provider commissioned with the delivery, insofar as this is necessary for the delivery or payment of the services.

Google Tag Manager

This website uses the Google Tag Manager. This service allows website tags to be managed through an interface. The Google Tool Manager only implements tags, does not set cookies and does not collect any personal data. The Google Tag Manager triggers other tags that may collect personal information. However, the Google Tag Manager does not access this data.

If deactivated at domain or cookie level, it will remain valid for all tracking tags implemented with Google Tag Manager.

Use of Google Analytics

Our website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service from Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereinafter referred to as “Google“. Google Analytics employs so-called “cookies“, text files that are stored to your computer in order to facilitate an analysis of your use of the site.

The information generated by these cookies, such as time, place and frequency of your visits to our site, including your IP address, is transmitted to Google’s location in the US and stored there.

We use Google Analytics with an IP anonymization feature on our website. In doing so, Google abbreviates and thereby anonymizes your IP address before transferring it from member states of the European Union or signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.

Google will use this information to evaluate your usage of our site, to compile reports on website activity for us, and to provide other services related to website- and internet usage. Google may also transfer this information to third parties if this is required by law or to the extent this data is processed by third parties on Google´s behalf.

Google states that it will never associate your IP address with other data held by Google. You can prevent cookies from being installed by adjusting the settings on your browser software accordingly. You should be aware, however, that by doing so you may not be able to make full use of all the functions of our website.

Google also offers a disabling option for the most common browsers, thus providing you with greater control over the data which is collected and processed by Google. If you enable this option, no information regarding your website visit is transmitted to Google Analytics. However, the activation does not prevent the transmission of information to us or to any other web analytics services we may use. For more information about the disabling option provided by Google, and how to enable this option, visit https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en

Google Ads Conversion Tracking

This website uses the “Google Ads Conversion Tracking” function of Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland (“Google”).

Google Ads Conversion tracking uses “cookies”, or text files that are stored on your computer and allow analysis of your use of the website when you have clicked on a Google ad. The cookies are valid for a maximum period of 90 days. This involves no storage of personal data. As long as the cookie is valid, both Google and we as the website provider can recognize that you have clicked on an ad and have reached a particular target page (e.g. an order confirmation or newsletter subscription page). These cookies cannot be tracked using different websites of multiple advertisers. The cookie causes conversion statistics to be created in “Google Ads”. These statistics include the number of users who have clicked on one of our ads. They also count how many users have reached a target page that has been tagged with a conversion tag. However, the statistics contain no data that could be used to identify you.

You can prevent cookies from being saved on your hard drive by selecting “Accept no cookies” in your browser settings (in MS Internet Explorer under “Extras > Internet Options > Security > Settings”; in Firefox under “Extras > Settings > Security > Cookies”); please be aware, however, that in this case you may not be able to fully use all functions of this website. By using this website you agree to the processing of the collected data by Google in the aforementioned manner and for the aforementioned purpose.

Additional information about how Google uses conversion data and about Google’s data privacy policy is available at: support.google.com/Ads/answer/93148, www.google.de/policies/privacy/.“

Google remarketing or “similar target groups”

1. This website uses the remarketing or “similar target group” function of Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Irland (“Google”).

2. You can be targeted with advertising by placing personalised and interest-based ads when you visit other websites in the so-called “Google Display Network”. “Google Remarketing” or the function “Similar target groups” uses so-called “cookies”, text files which are stored on your computer and which enable an analysis of your use of the website. These text files are used to record your visits and anonymous data about the use of the website. Personal data will not be stored. If you visit another website in the so-called “Google Display Network”, you may see advertisements that most likely take into account product and information areas previously accessed on our website.

3. You can prevent the “Google Remarketing” or the “Similar target group” function by preventing the storage of cookies by setting your browser software accordingly. However, we would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all functions of this website to their full extent. You can also prevent Google from collecting the data generated by the cookie and relating to your use of the website and from processing this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link: www.google.com/settings/ads/plugin. You may also disable the use of cookies by third parties by visiting the Network Advertising Initiative deactivation page at www.networkadvertising.org/choices/ and implementing the additional opt-out information described therein.

Google Display & Video 360 (previously Doubleclick Bid Manager)

On this website we use the tool Display & Video 360 from Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland, which collects data for analysis, marketing and optimization purposes, and through this helps us to improve our marketing measures and our website. The data we collect are used by Display & Video 360 to link advertising contacts and clicks on advertisements with any use of our website linked to this. This enables us to determine whether Internet users who have seen our adverts visit our website or what products they are interested in. This helps us to use our advertising budget more efficiently. We can also use the collected data for sending advertising based on your interests (for instance, products you have looked at).

Pseudonymous online identification numbers (for instance cookie IDs or IP addresses) are used for the data collection. In this process no unambiguous user-related data, such as name or address, are stored. All the IDs we use only enable the recognition of your terminal device and your Internet browser. Without your separate explicit approval, we do not use the collected data to personally identify you as a user of our website.

We hereby notify you that in the case of users who have registered with Google, Google possibly links your visit to this website with the registered data.

Campaign Manager (previously DoubleClick by Google)

This website also uses the Google online marketing tool Campaign Manager. Campaign Manager uses cookies in order to place adverts which are relevant for the user, to improve the reports for campaign performance or to prevent a user seeing the same adverts several times. Via a cookie ID Google records which adverts are placed in which browser, and can hence prevent them being shown several times. Furthermore, with the aid of cookie IDs Campaign Manager can record so-called conversions, which are related to the ad requests. For instance, this is the case if a user sees a Campaign Manager advertisement and later accesses the website of the advertiser with the same browser and buys something there. According to Google, Campaign Manager cookies do not contain any personal information.

Because of the marketing tools that are used, your browser automatically establishes a link with Google’s server. We have no influence on the scope and further use of the data which are collected by Google because of the use of this tool, and consequently hereby notify you according to the information we have regarding this: Through the integration of Campaign Manager, Google receives the information that you have called up the respective part of our website or have clicked on an advert we have placed. Insofar as you are registered with a Google service, Google can assign your visit to your account. Even if you are not registered with Google or have not logged in, it is possible that the provider may find out your IP address and save it.

Furthermore, the Campaign Manager (DoubleClick Floodlight) cookies enable us to understand whether you perform specific actions on our website, after you have called up our display/video adverts on Google or on another platform via Campaign Manager or have clicked on this (conversion tracking). Campaign Manager uses this cookie to understand the content which you have interacted with on our website, in order to be subsequently able to send targeted advertising.

You can prevent participation in this tracking process: a) through an appropriate setting of your browser software, in particular the suppression of cookies means that you will not receive any cookies from third-party vendors; b) by deactivating cookies for conversion tracking, by setting your browser to block cookies from the domain www.googleadservices.com, https://www.google.de/settings/ads, although this setting is deleted if you delete your cookies; c) by deactivating interest-related adverts of the vendors who are part of the self-regulating campaign “About Ads” via the link http://www.aboutads.info/choices, although this setting is deleted if you delete your cookies; d) through permanently deactivating in your browsers Firefox, Internet Explorer or Google Chrome, e) using the appropriate cookies settings. We hereby inform you that in this case you may not be able to fully use all functions of this offer.

You can also prevent Google collecting the data generated by the cookies about your use of the website and the processing of this data by Google through downloading the browser plugin available under “Display settings”, “Extension for Campaign Manager deactivation” and installing it.
