Privacy Policy

Data Protection Statement

Promerit AG wishes to increase users’ confidence in the web and, for this reason, makes the following statement on procedures related to personal data. The following describes which information we gather and how we process it.

Information on data protection
As a general rule, you can open all of Promerit’s internet pages without the need to identify yourself. If, in exceptional cases, your name, address or other data is needed, your attention will be drawn to this explicitly.

Your personal data will be used to facilitate and improve the service of Promerit AG to you as far as possible.

If you  decide to provide your personal data to Promerit AG via internet so that, for example, correspondence or an order can be processed, this information will be treated confidentially in accordance with the guidelines of the Bundesdatenschutzgesetz (BDSG, Federal Data Protection Law).

When the internet site is opened, Promerit AG receives the user data, which has been stored for security purposes and may make identification possible (e.g. IP address, date, time and pages opened). This data will be analyzed by Promerit AG in order to evaluate user behavior and allow statistical analysis. No analysis will be made related to specific individuals. We reserve the right to statistically evaluate anonymized data files.

You can find further information on the subject of data protection in the Federal Republic of Germany here: www.bfd.bund.de

Transfer of personal data to third persons
If data is transferred to sub-contractors as part of data processing work, these will also be bound by the BDSG, other legal requirements and the Privacy Policy of Promerit AG.

In cases where Promerit AG is legally-bound to do so, your data will be transferred to the authorized body in the appropriate form. Promerit will not transfer your data to third parties for any other purpose without express permission from you.

Safety
Promerit stores your data on specially-protected servers in Germany. Access to data is limited to very few persons involved in the technical, commercial or editorial administration of the server, all of whom must be authorized by Promerit AG.

Your right of cancellation
If you instruct Promerit AG not to use your personal data for further contact purposes and /or to remove it, this will be carried out. Data which is essential for the fulfilment of a project or for administrative purposes, is excluded from cancellation or removal.

We ask for your understanding that, in the case of cancellation, the personalized service can no longer be provided, as this depends on the use of the customer data.

Use of cookies
Cookies are used to gather text information during online sessions and are then transferred to the user hard drive in a special file in ASCII format (cookie.txt). The user’s WWW-browser determines where the cookie will be stored. Cookies consist of data, which is re-transmitted to the server at the next online session. They can only be read by the server, which applied them in the first place.

Promerit AG only uses cookies if they are really necessary or if they simplify navigation in the website. The information is not made available to third parties, as cookies are only used for the purposes detailed above.

Most browsers are configured to accept cookies automatically. This function can be deactivated in the browser at any time. You can configure your browser, so that you are informed as soon as cookies are sent.

Links to other websites
Promerit AG websites may contain links to other websites. Promerit AG has no influence on the editorial content of external websites and on the extent to which their authors observe the guidelines regarding data protection.

Advertising
As a rule, Promerit AG websites contain no advertising. In exceptional cases, any advertising is provided by external AdServers. The data, which is gathered from online advertising (AdImpressions, AdClicks) is used only for statistical reporting to advertising clients. No personalized data is used in this way.

When advertising material is supplied, cookies may be included without the knowledge or influence of Promerit AG.

Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, text files, which are stored on your computer and which allow an analysis of your use of the website. The information gathered by the cookie about your use of the website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

If an IP-anonymization applies to this website, your IP-address will be shortened by Google beforehand in the member countries of the European Union or in other contractual partners of the EEC.

At the request of the website administrator, Google uses this information to evaluate your use of the website, to collate reports of website activities and to provide other services in connection with the use of the website and the internet.

The IP-address, which is transmitted by your browser under Google Analytics will not be included into other data gathered by Google. You can avoid the storage of cookies by the appropriate configuration of your browser software; we advise that this may lead to your inability to use all the features of this website to the full.
