We, the Markert Group, welcome you to our website and are glad of your interest. The protection of your personal data is important to us. Therefore, we would like to inform you about which data will be gathered from your visit and for the purposes it will be used. Please contact our data protection officer should you have any more questions pertaining to the use of your personal data.
What is personal data?
The term “personal data” is defined in the German Federal Data Protection Act. It defines personal data as specific data about the personal or objective affairs of a specified or specifiable person. Your legal name, address, telephone number and your birthday are all examples of personal data.
Anonymous data gathering and processing
Unless specified otherwise in the following sections, no personal data will be gathered, processed or utilised by using our website. Our web server’s access log has been completely deactivated. We do, however, use Google Analytics to determine certain technical information provided by your web browser (such as browser type or version, operating system, pages visited on our website – including length of time spent on these pages, previously visited web sites). We evaluate this information exclusively for statistical purposes.
Following the agreement between Google and the Hamburg Commissioner for Data Protection and Freedom of Information, it has been determined that the irreproachable use of Google Analytics is possible under certain conditions. The agreement was made on the basis of resolutions adopted by the Düsseldorfer Kreis regarding analysis procedures that are implemented for the purpose of measuring the reach of online content, and are compliant with data protection regulations. It goes without saying that we comply with these requirements. We would like to draw attention to the fact that Google Analytics has been expanded to include the code “gat._anonymizeIp();” on this website in order to guarantee the anonymous collection of IP addresses (so-called IP masking).
Please note the following information about the use of Google Analytics:
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service by Google Inc. (”Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies”, text documents that are saved onto your computer and enable your use of the website to be analysed. Information about your use of the website generated by cookies is transferred to and stored on a server from Google in the USA.
If IP anonymisation is activated for this website, Google will shorten your IP address beforehand within the member states of the European Union or in other signatory states in the European economic zone. Only in exceptional cases will the entire IP address be transferred to one of Google’s servers in the USA and shortened there. Google uses this information on behalf of the operator of this website to analyse your use of the website, create reports about website activity for the website operators and offer further services related to website and internet use.
You can prevent Google Analytics from collecting data by clicking on the following link. An opt-out cookie will be installed, which will prevent the future collection of data while visiting the website: Disable Google Analytics
