Privacy Policy

The operator of this site takes the privacy of your personal data very seriously. We handle your data in a confidential manner and in accordance with legal data protection regulations as well as this data privacy statement.

It is generally possible to use our website without providing any data. In places where personal data (such as name, address, or email addresses) is collected, this is always done, as much as possible, on a voluntary basis. This data will not be given to third parties without your prior consent.

We wish to make clear that data transfer online (e.g. via email communication) can have security gaps. A complete protection of data from third party access is not possible.

Cookies

Some websites use so-called Cookies. Cookies do not harm your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies serve to make our offer more user-friendly, more effective, and more secure. Cookies are small text files that are archived on your computer and saved in your browser.

The type of cookies we mainly use are so-called "session cookies". These are automatically deleted once you leave our site. Other cookies remain saved on your device until you delete them yourself. These cookies allow us to recognize your browser upon your next visit to our site.

You can set up your browser so that you are informed about saving cookies and only enable cookies in individual cases, activate the acceptance of cookies for specific cases, or exclude them altogether, as well as activate a function that automatically deletes cookies when you close your browser. Deactivating cookies can limit the functionality of this website.

Server Log Files

The website provider automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files that your browser automatically transfers to us. These are:

  • Browser type and browser version
  • The operating system you use
  • Referrer URLs
  • Host name of the accessing computer
  • Server time request

This data is not attributable to particular persons. This data will not be combined with other data sources. We reserve the right to review this data at a later date if concrete evidence of unlawful use becomes known to us.

Request form

If you use our request form to send us a request about issuing an evaluation license, adding your address to our press distribution list, or asking for support, the information you enter in the request form, including the contact data you provide, will be saved for the purpose of processing your request and any further questions. This data will not be passed on to third parties without your consent.

Newsletter data

Our newsletter is used to inform you about us and our services.

If you would like to receive the newsletter, you will be required to provide a valid email address as well as information that allows us to check that you are the owner of the provided email address or rather that the owner of the email address provided agrees to receive the newsletter. No further data will be collected. This data will only be used to send the newsletter.

When you sign up for the newsletter, we will save your IP address and the date of your registration. This data serves only as evidence in the event that a third party misuses an email address and subscribes to the newsletter without the knowledge of the authorized party.

You can revoke your granted consent to store data and your email address, as well as to use your email address to send the newsletter, at any time by clicking on the unsubscribe link in the newsletter or by contacting us via the following email address: inga.toeller@model-engineers.com

We use the newsletter software from service provider CleverReach (Cleverreach GmbH & Co. KG, Mühlenstr. 43, 26180 Rastede, Germany) to create and manage the newsletter. Cleverreach is a member of the Certified Senders Alliance:
https://www.cleverreach.com/en/features/whitelisting-quality-and-spam-tests/

The required data of the newsletter recipients will be hosted on a CleverReach server, in an area that we have password-protected access to. The CleverReach terms of service serve as the contractual basis between us and CleverReach:
https://www.cleverreach.com/en/terms-of-service/

CleverReach therefore ensures that the company neither accesses the data of the newsletter recipients nor uses it in any other way. We transfer names and email addresses to CleverReach solely for the purpose of sending our newsletter. CleverReach stores data in such a way that other CleverReach customers or third parties have no access to it. You can find more information in the CleverReach privacy policy:

Google Analytics

This website uses functions from the web analysis service Google Analytics. The provider is Google Inc. 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Google Analytics uses so-called cookies. These are text files that are saved to your computer and enable analysis of your use of the website. Information about your use of this website gathered by cookies is generally transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

Order data processing

We have concluded an agreement for order data processing with Google and are fully implementing the strict requirements of the German data protection authorities when using Google Analytics.

IP anonymization

We use the “activation of IP anonymization” function on this website. This means your IP address will however be truncated by Google beforehand within the area of member states of the European Union or other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and truncated. Google will use this information on behalf of the operator to evaluate how you use the website to compile reports on website activities and to provide further services to the website operator relating to website and internet use. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be combined with other data from Google.

Google Analytics demographics

This website uses the Google Analytics function on demographics. This function can create reports that contain statements about a site user’s age, gender, and interests. This data comes from interest-based advertising from Google as well as user data from third parties. This data cannot be traced back to any specific person. You can deactivate this function at any time via the ad settings in your Google account or generally prohibit Google Analytics from collecting your data as described in the “Objection to data collection” section.

SSL encryption

For security reasons, and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as requests that you send to us as a site operator, this website uses an SSL encryption. You can recognize an encrypted connection when the browser’s address bar changes from “http://” to “https://” and you see a padlock icon in your browser.

If the SSL encryption is activated, the data you have transmitted to us cannot be accessed by third parties.

Right to information, deletion, blocking

You are entitled to information about your stored personal data, its origin and recipient, the purpose of data processing and the right to correct, block, or delete this data, at any time and free of charge. You can contact us at any time about this, or with any further questions relating to personal data, by using the address provided under the Imprint section of this website.

Objection to promotional emails

We hereby object to the use of contact data published within the scope of the statutory Imprint for the transmission of advertising and information material not expressly requested. The operator of the website reserves the right to take legal action in the case of unsolicited sending of advertising information, such as Spam emails.
