II Collection and storage of personal data in connection with visits to our website, type and purpose of use
1 General information
LMT GmbH collects, stores or processes data only for the exercise of its own business purposes.
In principle, our website is available to all users without the collection of personal data. However, selected areas and/or information require registration on our website.
Personal data is only requested, processed and used to the extent necessary to provide the services requested by you or to make content available.
We only deal with personal data as far as this is possible in accordance with data protection regulations. We also take all necessary technical and organizational security measures to protect your personal data adequately from unauthorized access and misuse at all times.
If personal data is transmitted to us via our website, we use numerous secure technologies, in particular the so-called “Transport Layer Security” transmission (TSL) or the “Secure Socket Layer” transmission (SSL). All information and data transmitted using these secure methods is encrypted before it is sent to us.
3 Collection of general data and information
Our website collects a number of general data and information with every visit. This general data and information is stored in the log files of the server. The following can be recorded
- used browser types and versions,
- the operating system,
- the domain name of your Internet Service Provider
- other similar data and information which serve to avert danger in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.
When using this general data and information, we do not draw any conclusions about the person concerned. Rather, this information is required to
(1) to deliver the contents of our website correctly
(2) to optimise the contents of our website and the advertising for it,
(3) to ensure the permanent functionality of our information technology systems and the technology of our website and
(4) to provide law enforcement authorities with information necessary for law enforcement purposes in the event of a cyber attack.
This is exclusively information which does not allow any conclusions to be drawn about your person. Furthermore, this data is also generated when accessing any other website on the Internet. It is therefore not a special function of LMT GmbH or these websites. The information collected in this way is evaluated with the aim of increasing data protection and data security in our company, in order to ultimately ensure an optimum level of protection for the personal data processed by us.
4 Registration on our website
Leuchten + Metall Technik GmbH directs its offer primarily to business customers (B2B).
In principle, however, all main and sub-pages of www.lmtgmbh.de are freely accessible to users. However, some areas on the product pages are only visible to registered and logged in users. This serves primarily to protect business secrets.
Please understand that we therefore only allow selected users access to all our information. Selected users include persons who are already customers of LMT GmbH or who potentially support the business purposes of LMT GmbH.
For this reason, every registration is first checked and then confirmed by a responsible administrator. If a responsible administrator decides not to grant the user access to sensitive data, the personal data will be deleted. The user will then receive an automatic e-mail informing him/her of the decision. LMT GmbH will not contact the user again on its own initiative after this.
Affected persons have the possibility to register on our website product.lmtgmbh.de by providing personal data. The following information is required for the registration process:
- First name
- Last name
Company specific information
- the name of the company for which the person concerned works
- Address of the company for which the person concerned works
- Postcode of the company for which the person concerned works
- City in which the company has its headquarters
- Country in which the company has its registered office
- E-mail (business)
- Phone (business)
When registering on our website, the IP address assigned by the Internet service provider (ISP) of the system used by the person concerned, the date and time of registration are also stored. This data is stored in order to prevent the misuse of our services and, if necessary, to enable us to investigate criminal offences that have been committed. To this extent, the storage of this data is necessary to protect the person responsible for processing. The registration of the data subject under voluntary disclosure of personal data serves the purpose of offering the data subject content or services which, due to the nature of the matter, can only be offered to registered users.
By using cookies, LMT GmbH can provide users of this website with more user-friendly services that would not be possible without the setting of cookies.
By means of a cookie, the information and offers on our website can be optimised in the interest of the user. As already mentioned, cookies enable us to recognize the users of our website. The purpose of this recognition is to make it easier for users to use our website, e.g. to load the website more quickly.
The person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time by means of a corresponding setting in the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Furthermore, cookies that have already been set can be deleted at any time via an Internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in all common Internet browsers. If the person concerned deactivates the setting of cookies in the Internet browser used, it is possible that not all functions of our website can be used to their full extent.
6 Subscription to a newsletter
On our website, users are given the opportunity to subscribe to the LMT GmbH newsletter. The following data is collected:
- e-mail address
- First name
- Last name
We collect this data in order to send interested parties interesting information via newsletter at regular intervals. These newsletters can only be received by the person concerned if
- the person concerned has a valid e-mail address, and
- the person concerned has registered to receive the newsletter
For legal reasons, a confirmation e-mail is sent to the e-mail address first entered by a person concerned for the newsletter. This confirmation mail is used to check whether the owner of the e-mail address has authorized the receipt of the newsletter as the person concerned.
The personal data collected during registration for the newsletter is used exclusively for sending the newsletter. Furthermore, subscribers to the newsletter can be informed by e-mail if this is necessary for the operation of the newsletter service or for registration, as might be the case if there are changes to the newsletter offer or if technical conditions change.
LMT GmbH uses an e-mail service provider based in Germany for sending the newsletter. This service provider undertakes, within the framework of the legal provisions, to act as a processor on behalf of the customer, but not to process the data in any way whatsoever and not to pass them on to third parties.
The subscription to the newsletter can be cancelled by the person concerned at any time. The consent to the storage of personal data, which the person concerned has given us (exclusively) for the purpose of sending the newsletter, can be revoked at any time. For the purpose of revoking the consent, a corresponding link is included in every newsletter. It is also possible to unsubscribe at any time by sending an e-mail to info(at)lmtgmbh(dot)de.
7 Newsletter Tracking
The newsletters of LMT GmbH, which are sent via the above-mentioned order processor, contain so-called tracking pixels. A tracking pixel is a miniature graphic embedded in such e-mails sent in HTML format to enable log file recording and log file analysis. This allows a statistical evaluation of the success or failure of online marketing campaigns. The embedded pixel-code enables LMT GmbH to recognise whether and when an e-mail was opened by a person concerned and which links in the e-mail were called up by the person concerned.
Such personal data collected via the pixel-code contained in the newsletters is stored by the processor on its platform, so that LMT GmbH can subsequently evaluate it in its account in order to optimise newsletter dispatch and to adapt the content of future newsletters even better to the interests of the person concerned. Affected persons are entitled to revoke the separate declaration of consent to the newsletter issued via the double opt-in procedure at any time. LMT GmbH automatically interprets a cancellation of receipt of the newsletter as a revocation.
The data of the opening and clicking recipients shown in the reports are presented anonymously, i.e. the collection and processing of complete IP addresses is additionally prevented.
Contact possibility via the Internet site
Our internet pages contain forms which enable a quick contact to us. The following personal data are necessary to contact us:
- E-mail address
- Company / Publisher
The transmitted data and message will be forwarded as e-mail to the person responsible for processing and stored for the purpose of processing.
8 Supplementary data protection provisions on the use and application of Google Analytics (with anonymisation function)
The Google Analytics component (with anonymisation function) is integrated on our website. Google Analytics is a web analysis service. Web analysis is the collection, collection and evaluation of data on the behaviour of visitors to websites. Among other things, a web analysis service collects data on which website a person concerned came to a website from (so-called referrers), which sub-pages of the website were accessed or how often and for how long a subpage was viewed. A web analysis is mainly used to optimize an internet page and for cost-benefit analysis of internet advertising.
The operating company of the Google Analytics component is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.
We use the addition “_gat._anonymizeIp” for web analysis via Google Analytics. By means of this addition, the IP address of the Google system used by the person concerned is shortened and made anonymous if access to our Internet pages is from a member state of the European Union or from another state that is a signatory to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.
The purpose of the Google Analytics component is the analysis of visitor flows on our website. Among other things, Google uses the data and information obtained to evaluate the use of our website in order to compile online reports for us which show the activities on our website and to provide further services in connection with the use of our website.
Google Analytics places a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. What cookies are has already been explained above. By setting the cookie, Google is enabled to analyse the use of our website. Each time you access one of the individual pages of our website, which is operated by us and on which a Google Analytics component has been integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the person concerned is automatically prompted by the respective Google Analytics component to transmit data to Google for the purpose of online analysis. In the course of this technical process, Google obtains knowledge of personal data, such as the IP address of the system used by the person concerned, which Google uses, among other things, to trace the origin of visitors and clicks and subsequently to enable commission settlements.
By means of the cookie, personal information such as the access time, the location from which an access originated and the frequency of visits to our website by the person concerned is stored. Each time our website is visited, this personal data, including the IP address of the system used by the person concerned, is transmitted to Google in the United States of America. This personal data is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may pass on this personal data collected via the technical process to third parties.
The person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies by our website, as already described above, at any time by means of a corresponding setting in the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent Google from setting a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. In addition, a cookie already set by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs.
9 Data regulations on the use and application of YouTube
We have integrated components from YouTube on our website. YouTube is an Internet video portal that allows video publishers to post video clips for free and other users to view, rate and comment on them, also free of charge. YouTube allows the publication of all types of videos, which is why complete film and television broadcasts, but also music videos, trailers or videos created by users themselves can be accessed via the Internet portal.
YouTube is operated by YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. YouTube, LLC is a subsidiary of Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.
Each time the data controller calls up one of the individual pages of our website, which is operated by the data controller and on which a YouTube component (YouTube video) has been integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject is automatically prompted by the respective YouTube component to download a display of the corresponding YouTube component from YouTube. Further information on YouTube can be found at https://www.youtube.com/yt/about/de/. As part of this technical process, YouTube and Google are informed which specific subpage of our website is visited by the data subject.
If the person concerned is logged in at the same time on YouTube, YouTube recognizes which specific subpage of our website the person concerned is visiting by calling up a subpage containing a YouTube video. This information is collected by YouTube and Google and assigned to the respective YouTube account of the person concerned.
YouTube and Google receive information through the YouTube component that the data subject has visited our website whenever the data subject is logged on to YouTube at the same time as he or she visits our website, regardless of whether or not the data subject clicks on a YouTube video. If the data subject does not want this information to be sent to YouTube and Google, he or she can prevent it from being sent by logging out of his or her YouTube account before visiting our website.
10 Using script libraries (Google Web Fonts)
In order to display our content correctly and graphically appealing across browsers, we use script libraries and font libraries such as Google Web Fonts (https://www.google.com/webfonts/) on this website. Google Web fonts are cached in your browser to prevent multiple downloads. If your browser does not support Google Web Fonts or prevents access, content will be displayed in a default font.
Calling up script libraries or font libraries automatically triggers a connection to the library operator. It is theoretically possible – although it is currently unclear whether and for what purposes – that the operators of such libraries collect data.
11 Google AdWords
Our website uses Google Conversion Tracking. If you have reached our website via an advertisement placed by Google, Google Adwords will set a cookie on your computer. The conversion tracking cookie is set when a user clicks on an ad served by Google. These cookies expire after 30 days and are not personally identifiable. If the user visits certain pages on our site and the cookie hasn’t expired, we and Google can tell that the user clicked the ad and was redirected to that page. Each Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. As a result, cookies cannot be tracked across the websites of AdWords customers. The information collected through the conversion cookie is used to compile conversion statistics for advertisers who have opted in to conversion tracking. Customers are told the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a page with a conversion tracking tag. However, they do not receive any information that can be used to personally identify users.
If you do not wish to participate in tracking, you can refuse to accept cookies by changing your browser settings to disable automatic placement of cookies or to set your browser to block cookies from the domain “googleleadservices.com”.
Please note that you may not delete the opt-out cookies unless you wish to record measurement data. If you have deleted all your cookies in your browser, you have to set the respective opt-out cookie again.
12 Use of Google Remarketing and Double Click
This website uses the remarketing feature of Google Inc. to deliver interest-based ads to website visitors within the Google advertising network. A so-called “cookie” is stored in the visitor’s browser, which makes it possible to recognize the visitor when he or she visits websites that belong to the Google advertising network. On these pages the visitor may be presented with advertisements relating to content that the visitor has previously viewed on websites that use Google’s remarketing function.
For this purpose, Google uses the so-called “DoubleClick” cookie, among other things. This is the same cookie that is used on websites on which advertising programs of the Google subsidiary DoubleClick are running. No advertising from third parties is placed on our pages. The DoubleClick cookie is only used here for remarketing purposes.
13 Using the Facebook pixel
We use the Facebook tracking pixel on our websites to provide users with the best possible experience when using the website. This is a service of Facebook Ireland Ltd, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland as part of the social network Facebook. When using the pixel we send the following data to the USA: IP address.
