Visiting our website is possible in all cases without the provision of personal data. However, for technical reasons, your IP address is automatically saved when you visit our website. The last 3 digits of your IP address are anonymized, in order to prevent traceability (IP masking).

We only save access data with no personal connection, such as: the name of your Internet service provider, date and time of the request, content of the request (specific site), access status/HTTP status code, the volume of data transmitted, website from which the request came, Browser, operating system and interface, language and version of the browser software (“log files”). This anonymous data is analysed purely so we are able to improve our products. It does not allow any trace to be made to your personal identification.

If you wish to purchase a licence for our see4service software via our web shop, you will be prompted to set up a user account whilst ordering and to enter the data necessary to process your order (company, name, company address, email address, password). Email address and password serve as access data for your customer account.

In addition, you will be prompted to define the access data (email address and password) for access to the software purchased. We recommend defining different passwords for the web shop and the software. Our website works with password encryption so we have no access to customers’ passwords.
Your personal data (inventory data) entered in the scope of the purchase order and whilst creating your company profile, in addition to your usage data, i.e. information that arises from the interaction between yourself and our website (e.g. details about the beginning and end of the session on the website, details about licences purchased etc.) will solely be processed and used in accordance with the German data-protection regulations, in particular those set out in the German Federal Data Protection Act and the German Telemedia Act.

We will only collect and process your inventory data to the extent required for the conclusion, content and structure or modification of our agreement with you, or in so far as this is otherwise legally allowed or required.

We will only collect and use your inventory data as far as it is required in order to establish the contractual relation, arrange it in terms of content, or change it, or if otherwise legally allowed or required. We will only collect and use your user data as far as it is required to facilitate the use of our services or if otherwise legally allowed or required.

For the contractual relationship, it may be necessary to forward certain data to the payment provider of your choice (e.g. PayPal, credit card supplier) or other service provider we use to fulfil the contract. They will use your data solely for the purpose of the contract.

We use SSL encryption to make payment with credit card as secure as possible.

V. Use of Cookies
Cookies are files that contain certain information (e.g. the time of your server request, the operating system used, the type of browser, the websites previously visited and the IP address) and are saved on the user’s computer when an Internet site is visited. If you then call up the relevant server again, your browser will send the cookie previously saved, back to that server.
During your visit to our Internet pages, we used so-called Session-Cookies, which are deleted immediately when the browser is closed. The purpose of these cookies is to enable or facilitate certain functions of our website (e.g. the shopping basket). In addition, we employ cookies that retain their utility after the session has ended (trans-session cookies). These cookies, in particular, are intended to make our service safer, more effective and more user-friendly.

It is possible to set up your browser in such a manner that cookies are not stored on your computer; it is also possible to delete cookies previously saved. The help function in your browser’s menu bar explains how this can be done. If your browser does not accept cookies, it is quite possible that certain areas of our website cannot be used to their full extent.

VI. Web tracking
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics also uses cookies, which are files saved on your computer, to help the website analyse how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including your IP address) is sent to a Google Server in Europe or in another country within the European Economic Area for IP anonymization, so that the user data cannot be followed back to the user. Only once IP anonymized is the shortened IP address transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States.

Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address sent to and shortened by Google servers in the USA. On behalf of the website provider, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating the use of our website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators and providing other services relating to website activity and Internet usage to the website provider. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google.

You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser. You may also prevent the data generated by the cookie relating to your use of the website (including your IP address) being collected as well as the collection and use of the generated data by Google, by following this link to download and install the browser plug-in which deactivates Google Analytics: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout
