A. Data protection

LEWA GmbH is happy you have visited our website and that you are interested in our company, our products, and our services. The protection of your personal data is very important to us and we strive to ensure that you feel safe and comfortable while visiting our Internet pages. We process and store the personal data collected during your visit to our Internet pages in compliance with applicable privacy law.

Personal data are stored and processed in accordance with German data privacy laws.

According to the Bundesdatenschutzgesetz (German Data Protection Act), you have the right to information free of charge about your stored data as well as the possible right to notification, blocking, or deletion of that data.

Collection and processing of non-personal data

LEWA GmbH automatically stores information regarding access to this website and to the newsletter and this access cannot be assigned to any specific person (e.g. the used Internet browser, the operating system, the domain name, the number of visitors, the duration of visits, and the pages retrieved). This information is used by LEWA GmbH to determine the attractiveness of the website and the newsletter and to continue to improve their content.

Collection and processing of personal data

Personal data (for example, name, company, industry, role, address, telephone number, or e-mail address) is only stored by LEWA GmbH insofar as you provide this information explicitly in the context of contacting the company, registering for the newsletter, ordering, filling out a questionnaire, etc.  In addition, delivery and access to the newsletter and its content also involves the automatic storage of personal data.

Please note that except in the context of orders placed in our Webshop, personal data is not transmitted in encrypted form and therefore no confidential information should be sent through the contact form. During order placement, however, your personal data is encrypted with SSL for transmission over the Internet. We use technical and organizational means to secure our website and other systems against the loss, destruction, access, change, or distribution of your data by unauthorized persons. Access to your customer account is only possible after entering your personal password. You should always handle your access information confidentially and close the browser window when you have ended communication with us, particularly if you are sharing use of the computer with others.

The data that you transmit or we collect will exclusively be stored and processed for individual communication with you, for the processing of your requests, your orders, your individual support, to transmit product information, to adapt newsletter content to the recipient's interests, or to distribute service offers, and will only be disclosed to companies in the LEWA Group or, if necessary, to trading companies engaged by LEWA GmbH.

We will retain your data until you send us a corresponding notice or terminate your subscription to our newsletter. Termination of subscription is possible at any time using the link provided in the newsletter. By terminating, you revoke permission to use your contact data. Your data will then be immediately deleted at no cost to you.

Cookies

Among other things, our website uses what are known as cookies that are used to make our Internet presence more user-friendly, more effective, and more secure – for example, to accelerate navigation in our platform. Cookies also permit us to measure information such as the frequency of page calls and general navigation. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer system. We hereby notify you that some of these cookies are copied from our server to your computer system; these are what are known as session cookies. Session cookies are characterized by the fact that they are automatically deleted from your hard drive after the end of the browser session.

If your browser permits it, of course, you can reject cookies at any time or prevent their installation using the corresponding settings in your browser software; however, we do warn you that in this case you will not be able to use all functions of this website to their full extent.

User tracking

Our website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics uses what are known as “cookies,” which are text files stored on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators and providing other services relating to website activity and Internet usage. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google's behalf. Under no circumstances will Google associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. By using this website, you consent to the processing of data about you by Google in the manner and for the purposes set out above. We hereby notify you that this website uses Google Analytics with the extension of IP anonymization and that therefore only abbreviated IP addresses are further processed in order to rule out direct personal identification.

Data collection and storage can be denied at any time, remaining effective for the future. You can find our contact address for this denial on our contact information page. Alternatively, you can use the deactivation add-on for Google Analytics (http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de) if it is available for your browser.

Furthermore, on some pages we also use the analysis service WebTrends, which provides us with statistical data about the use of our Internet presence in an anonymous form.

We use products of WiredMinds AG (www.wiredminds.de) for marketing and optimization purposes. These products collect and process your personal data and use it to create usage profiles under a pseudonym. These usage profiles are fully anonymized where possible and appropriate. Cookies can be used for this purpose. Cookies are small text files that are saved in the Internet browser of the visitor and are used to recognize the Internet browser. We transfer the data we collect about you, which may also include personal data, to WiredMinds or WiredMinds may gather this data directly. WiredMinds is entitled to use information that you leave behind by visiting our Web sites to create anonymized usage profiles. The data collected shall not be used to personally identify visitors to this Web site without the express permission of the party affected and shall not be merged with personal data about the bearer of the pseudonym. Any IP addresses recorded are anonymized immediately by deleting the last number block. Permission to collect, process and store data in the future may be revoked at any time. Exclude from website tracking

Our offer contains links to external websites of third parties whose content we have no influence over. We can therefore accept no liability for this external content.
