Passing on the data

We use your personal data within ETA PLUS GmbH and our affiliated companies. These companies, as well as our external service providers who carry out data processing on our behalf, are contractually obliged within the meaning of Art. 28 DS-GVO to handle the personal data in accordance with the applicable regulations. Insofar as these companies come into contact with your personal data, we have ensured through legal, technical and organisational measures as well as through regular checks that they comply with the provisions of the data protection laws. 

If you find partner offers on our website, use these directly with the respective partners. This also includes the offers of third party providers, which are administered by these providers, so that our data protection provisions do not apply to these offers. We reserve the right to transmit your personal data to authorities entitled to receive information if we are obliged to do so by law or by court order.

As a matter of principle, your personal data will not be passed on to other third parties.

Cookies

On our website, various information is stored in so-called cookies, which serve a user-friendly handling of the application and make the internet offer more effective overall. In addition, the data stored in a cookie makes it unnecessary to repeatedly fill out forms. The cookies we use are time-limited and are deleted regularly. 

For the use of an account on our website, we use cookies in particular to be able to recognise you on a subsequent visit. Otherwise you would have to log in again for each visit.

You can independently manage the acceptance of cookies from our website in your browser and block them if necessary. You can also delete cookies that have already been set at any time. Furthermore, you can find out about the possibility of deactivating cookies in the settings of your selected browser. If you do not accept cookies, this may lead to restrictions in the use of our website in individual cases. We would like to point out that after deleting your cookies, you may also have to reactivate set opt-out cookies.

We recommend that you manually delete the cookies and the browser history on a regular basis.

Website analysis

In order to optimise the contents and offers of our website as well as to collect statistical evaluations, various technical programmes are used that record data on the behaviour of the user of the website, also in anonymised form. For this purpose, for example, data on click behaviour, duration of visit, system settings and origin of the user are collected through the use of analysis software cookies in the form of text files. Cookies are stored on your computer for these analyses. This collected data may be stored on the servers of the operators of the analysis tools. The collected data is not used to personally identify the user and is not merged with other personal data of the user.

You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser. However, we would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all the functions of this website to their full extent. In the following section, we present the analysis tools we use in detail.

 

The following analysis tools are used on our website for this purpose:

Google Analytics

We use the analysis procedure Google Analytics, a procedure of Google Inc. for the analysis of our website. The information generated by the Google Analytics cookie is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics is not merged with other Google data. Furthermore, the IP addresses are only processed in abbreviated form. A direct reference to a person can therefore be excluded. Our website uses Google Analytics with the extension "_anonymizelp". This means that IP addresses are processed in abbreviated form, which rules out the possibility of a direct link to a person.

You can prevent the collection and processing of your data by the Google Analytics cookie by installing the following browser plug-in: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.

Company: GOOGLE INC.,1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA

For more information on this web analytics tool, please see: https://www.google.de/policies/privacy/partners/ and Google's privacy policy http://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy.

Google Maps

We use Google Maps API, a service of Google Inc., for the visual presentation of geographical information. The information generated by Google Maps API is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. Google may transfer data obtained through the use of Google Maps to third parties where such third parties process the data on Google's behalf or where required to do so by law. The IP address transmitted by your browser when using Google Maps will not be merged with other Google data. Nevertheless, it would be technically potentially possible for Google to process the data received for other purposes or to identify individual users without ETA PLUS GmbH having or being able to influence this. For these reasons, the use of Google Maps is problematic from a data protection point of view.

However, you have the option of preventing the transfer of data to Google by deactivating the Google Maps service by deactivating the JavaScript function in your browser. In this case, however, you will not be able to use the map display.

By using this website with the JavaScript function activated, you expressly declare your consent, in full knowledge of the data protection issues, to the processing of the data collected from you by Google Inc. in the manner and for the purposes described above.

Company: GOOGLE INC.,1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA

Further information on the terms of use for Google Maps can be found at: http://www.google.com/intl/de_de/help/terms_maps.html and in the Google privacy policy http://www.google.de/intl/de/privacy/
