Privacy Policy

Handling personal data

We only collect personal data via our website, if you provide such data voluntarily, for example after registration or by filling out the contact form, if you have accepted our data privacy statement or if data collection is allowed or stipulated by the relevant data protection legislation.

All collected personal data will be used exclusively for the purpose for which you have provided them or for a purpose that you specified, for example to reply your questions, to process your orders or to provide you with access to information or offers according to the General Data Protection Regulation GDPR Article 6, Paragraph 1 (b).

Apart from the purpose that you specified, all data you have provided online will only be collected, processed and used,

  • if collecting, processing and use of the data is directly related to the original purpose of the data
  • if collecting, processing and use of the data is necessary for the preparation, negotiation and fulfillment of a contract between SIEB & MEYER and you
  • if collecting, processing and use of data is necessary due to official court order
  • if collecting, processing and use of data is necessary to protect against legal claims or to defend court actions.

For the purpose of safety analysis and for the defense of attacks any access to our website is saved in "server log files" on the server of our website. The following data are collected:

  • used IP address
  • visited website and volume of data sent
  • date and hour of the access
  • source/link from which you accessed the website
  • used browser
  • used operating system

The server logfiles will be saved for max. 2 weeks and deleted after this period. The data are saved for safety reasons, for example to clarify cases of data misuse. Any data to be saved for purposes of evidence shall not be deleted until the case is finally cleared.

 

Deletion and storage of data


Unless your request conflicts with a legal obligation to retain data (e.g. data retention), you have the right to have your data deleted. Data stored by us will be stored for a maximum of 2 weeks if it is no longer required for its intended purpose and there are no statutory retention periods, and then deleted. This temporary storage of data is done for security reasons, e.g. to be able to clarify cases of abuse. If deletion cannot be carried out because the data is required for permissible legal purposes, data processing will be restricted. In this case the data will be blocked and not processed for other purposes.

We only transfer your personal data to subsidiaries or sales representatives of SIEB & MEYER AG, if you have given consent or if we are legally authorized for the purposes specified above. This data transfer is processed in the legitimate interest to provide our customers optimal and cost-efficient customer service in the sales and service structures of SIEB & MEYER AG.

Automatically collected data

Google Analytics

Based on our legitimate interests, this website uses the service "Google Analytics" for the optimisation and analysis of our online offer within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. GDPR. Google Analytics is provided by Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA). The service (Google Analytics) uses "cookies" - text files which are stored on your end device. The information collected by the cookies is usually sent to a Google server in the USA and stored there. Google LLC complies with European data protection law and is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement: https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active

On this website IP-anonymization is used. The IP address of the users is shortened within the member states of the EU and the European Economic Area and in the other contracting states of the agreement. Only in individual cases is the IP address initially transferred in full to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. Through this shortening, the personal reference of your IP address is no longer necessary. The user's IP address transmitted by the browser is not combined with other data stored by Google.

Within the framework of the agreement on commissioned data, which we as website operator have concluded with Google Inc., the latter uses the information collected to create an evaluation of website use and website activity and provides services associated with the use of the internet.
The data collected by Google on our behalf is used to evaluate the use of our online offer by individual users, e.g. to generate reports on website activity in order to improve our online offer.

You have the option of preventing the storage of cookies on your device by making the appropriate settings in your browser. If your browser does not allow cookies we cannot guarantee that you will be able to access all functions of this website without restrictions.
Furthermore, you can use a browser plugin to prevent the information collected by cookies (including your IP address) from being sent to and used by Google Inc. The plugin is found at the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en

Google Ads

Our website uses the program Google Ads. Ads is an online advertising tool of Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland ("Google"). We use Google Ads to advertise our attractive offers on external websites with the help of advertising material (so-called Google Adwords). In relation to the data of the advertising campaigns, we can determine how successful the individual advertising measures are. This way, we pursue the interest in showing you advertising that is of interest to you, to make our website more interesting for you and to achieve a fair calculation of advertising costs.

In the context of Google Ads we use the so-called conversion tracking. When you click on an ad placed by Google, a cookie is set for conversion tracking. Cookies are small text files that the internet browser places on the user's computer. These cookies expire after 30 days and are not used to personally identify users. If the user visits certain pages of this website and the cookie has not expired, Google and we may recognize that the user clicked on the ad and was redirected to that page.

Each Google Ads customer receives a different cookie. This means that cookies cannot be tracked on the websites of ads customers. The information collected through the conversion cookie is used to compile conversion statistics for those ads customers who have opted-in to conversion tracking. The customers will know the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a page with a conversion tracking tag. However, they do not receive information that personally identifies users. If you don't want to participate in tracking, you can block this functionality by disabling the Google Conversion Tracking cookie on your web browser under user preferences. You will then not be included in the conversion tracking statistics.

The storage of "conversion cookies" is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR The website operator has a legitimate interest in the analysis of user behaviour in order to optimise both his website and his advertising.

Google LLC, based in the USA, is certified for the US-European data protection agreement "Privacy Shield", which guarantees compliance with the level of data protection applicable in the EU. You can find more information about Google's privacy policy at the following web address: https://policies.google.com/privacy?gl=de&hl=en

You can permanently deactivate cookies for ad preferences by making the appropriate setting in your browser software to prevent them from being stored or by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at the following link: http://www.google.com/settings/ads/plugin?hl=en/

Please note that certain functions of this website may not be available or may only be used to a limited extent if you have deactivated the use of cookies.

Tag Manager

This website uses the Google Tag Manager. This service allows website tags to be managed through an interface. Google Tool Manager only implements tags, does not set cookies and does not collect any personal information. Google Tag Manager triggers other tags that may collect personal information. However, Google Tag Manager does not access this information. If disabled at the domain or cookie level, it will remain disabled for all tracking tags when implemented with Google Tag Manager.

You Tube

We integrate videos of the "YouTube" platform of the provider Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Privacy policy: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/, Opt-Out: https://adssettings.google.com/authenticated.
