Privacy policy

As a responsible company, GEUTEBRÜCK GmbH, Im Nassen 7-9, 53578 Windhagen, respects your privacy. We are aware that you put your trust in us to responsibly handle the personal information you provide us with. The data protection declaration below will therefore inform you about the collection and processing of personal data on this website. We will explain to you how we handle your personal data and what you can expect when you use our web service.

I. Collection, processing and use of personal data

Every time you visit the website at www.geutebrueck.com, personal data will be collected and processed automatically. The following data are collected for the purpose of creating visitor statistics about the use of this website, to improve the website and to protect it against cyber attacks:

  • Date and visit of the URL that is visited
  • The URL the visitor had visited immediately beforehand
  • The browser used
  • The operating system used
  • The visitor’s IP address

II. The use of cookies

In order to make the visit to our website attractive and to enable the use of certain functions, we use so-called "cookies" on some pages. Cookies are small text files which are temporarily stored on your computer. No personal data of yours is stored during this process. After the end of the browser session, the cookies that were used are deleted from your hard drive (so-called "session cookies"). We use cookies from third-party providers only to the extent mentioned in this data protection declaration. You have the option to prevent cookies from being stored on your computer by selecting the appropriate settings in your browser. Please ask the supplier of your browser what you specifically need to do. In this case you will still be able to access this website, but it will be limited in its functionality.

III. Website analysis/tracking

Google Analytics

We use Google Analytics, a web analytics service by Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; “Google”). Google uses cookies. The information generated by the cookie about the use of the online offers by the users is usually transmitted to a Google server in the US and stored there.

Google will use this information on our behalf, to analyze the use of our online offers by the user, to compile reports on the activities within this online offer and to provide us with other services related to the use of this online offer and the internet. The processed data may be used to create pseudonymous usage profiles.

We use Google Analytics only with activated IP anonymization. This means that the IP address of the user will be truncated by Google within member states of the European Union or in other party countries to the agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and truncated there.

The IP address transmitted by the user’s browser is not associated with other data from Google. The user may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on their browser software; the user can also prevent Google from collecting the data generated by the cookie regarding your use of the contents data and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available via the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.

For more information about data usage for advertising purposes by Google, setting options and possibilities of appeal, visit the websites of Google: https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/partners (“Data usage by Google when you use the websites or apps of our partners”), http://www.google.com/policies/technologies/ads (“Data usage for advertising purposes”), http://www.google.de/settings/ads (“Managing data which Google uses to display advertising to you”) and http://www.google.com/ads/preferences (“You decide which advertising Google shows you”).

Google AdWords Conversion Tracking

We use Google AdWords and, in the context of Google AdWords, Conversion Tracking. Google Conversion Tracking is an analysis service of Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; “Google”). When you click an ad delivered by Google, a cookie for conversion tracking is stored on your computer. The Conversion cookie also notifies Google when a user has clicked on the ad and was forwarded to our website. At no point are we able to personally identify a user. The information obtained using the Conversion cookie only serves to create Conversion statistics about the total number of users who have clicked on our ads and, if applicable, to tell us whether they were forwarded to a page on our website that has a Conversion tag. We use the statistics to improve our website and our ads. 

If you do not want to participate in tracking, you can block the installation of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings in your browser (deactivation option). You will then not be included in the Conversion tracking statistics. Alternatively, you can adjust the display settings of Google or deactivate interest-based ads.

Ligatus

We use Ligatus, a Behavioral Targeting Tool of Ligatus GmbH (Hohenstaufenring 30-32, 50674 Köln, Germany). When you visit our website, a cookie will be temporarily stored on your computer, which will be read when you next visit the website. This allows us to see which website has already been visited by you and which ad has already been displayed to you. We use this information to improve our website and our ads and to avoid unnecessary advertising. At no point are we able to personally identify a user.

You can object to the data processing by Ligatus by blocking the installation of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings in your browser software (deactivation option). Alternatively, you can object to Ligatus processing your data here.
