Data collection

While you are visiting our webpages, our server records this automatically purely for statistical purposes to keep us informed of the number of visitors visiting our site. This is done autonomously and no identifiable data is maintained. A direct link to you is not established or maintained in the process. We gauge only the following data:

  • the number of visitors for each webpage visited
  • Date and time of the visits
  • if necessary, the type of system software (Browser, Operating system)

as well as the network connection through which you are accessing our webpages, in order to be able to adapt our server accordingly.

We specifically do not use your internet-address (IP-Address) except to establish the connection. We do not create individual visitor profiles and also do not pass on such data to third party companies for them to enable such visitor profiles. Any personal data that is transmitted to us by you through a webpage (for example: your name, postal address or your email address) will be used by us only for the purpose of correspondence with you or solely for the purpose for which you made the data available to us.

We may wish to use your contact data for the purpose of informing you occasionally about our products, services and innovations. For this purpose, however, we will obtain your permission in advance.

In accordance with the Federal Data Protection Act, you will be able to opt-out of any Ced marketing. Simply send us a brief message stating your request. We assure you that we will not pass your identity data to any third party unless we are compelled to do this in the form of statutory stipulations or where you have mandated us to pass over your data to a third party.
