Data privacy

Protection of personal data:

Under no circumstances will data be passed on to third parties without permission.

We will not collect any personal data whatsoever without permission. Persons ordering materials decide whether or not to supply us with personal data. This information will then be used to process an enquiry. It may be necessary to store personal data for continued customer relationship management purposes.

Links to other websites:

Some of our websites contain links to other websites. We therefore expressly point out that steute is not responsible for the data protection strategies or content of these other websites. The operators of these websites have sole responsibility for their content.

Cookies

So-called cookies are used in different areas of our website. Cookies are small text files which are installed and stored on your computer by your internet browser. Their purpose is to make our website more user-friendly, more effective and more secure.

Cookies do not record any personal data, do not damage your computer in any way and do not contain any viruses.

The cookies we use are mostly so-called "session cookies", which are automatically deleted when you leave our website. Sometimes we also use permanent cookies, which are not automatically deleted when you leave our website.

You can prevent the installation of cookies by adjusting your browser settings accordingly. However, this may restrict the functionality of our website.

Piwik web analysis

For statistical analysis of visitors to our website, we use the analysis software Piwik. This analysis works with so-called cookies (text files which are stored on your computer). However, your IP address is anonymised, meaning that no personal data can be recorded.

Google Analytics privacy policy

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service from Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, text files which are saved to your computer and enable your use of this website to be analysed. In most cases, the information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is transmitted to a Google server in the USA, where it is stored. The IP address passed on by your browser in conjunction with Google Analytics is not combined with other Google data. We have upgraded Google Analytics on our website to include the code “anonymizeIP”. This guarantees that your IP address is masked, allowing all data to be captured anonymously. The full IP address is only transmitted to a Google server in the USA in exceptional cases, and then shortened. By order of the website host, Google will use this information to analyse your use of the website, to compile reports about website activities and to provide the website host with further services connected with website and internet use. You can block the storage of cookies by selecting the relevant setting in your browser software; but we would like to point out that this might prevent you from being able to use all the functions of this website to their full extent. This website uses Google Analytics reports on demographic characteristics in which data from interest-related advertising by Google as well as visitor data from third party providers (e.g. age, gender and interests) is used. This data cannot be attributed to a specific person and can be deactivated at any time using the browser settings.

You can block transmission to Google of cookie-generated data referring to your use of this website (incl. your IP address), as well as processing of this information by Google, by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following link: tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en. As an alternative to the browser add-on, particularly in connection with browsers for mobile devices, you can also block data capture through Google Analytics by unchecking the box at the bottom of the page. An opt-out cookie is then set which blocks future capture of your data when visiting this website. The opt-out cookie is only valid in this browser and on our website and will be stored on your device. If you delete the cookies in this browser, you must re-set the opt-out cookie.

We also use Google Analytics to analyse data from double-click cookies and AdWords for statistical purposes. If you do not wish this, you can deactivate the option via the Ads settings manager (http://www.google.com/settings/ads).
