PRIVACY POLICY

General

This privacy statement is intended to inform the users of this website about the nature, scope and purpose of the collection and use of personal data by the website operator [CR Consult, Schumannsdieken 15, 40885 Ratingen, info@crconsult.net].

The website operator takes your privacy very seriously and will treat your personal information confidentially and in accordance with the law. As new technologies and the continuous development of this website may require changes to this privacy policy, we recommend that you review the privacy policy at regular intervals.

Definitions of the terms used (eg “personal data” or “processing”) can be found in Art. 4 GDPR.

Access data

We, the website operator, collect data on website access on the basis of our legitimate interest (see Article 6 (1) lit. DSGVO) and save these as “server log files” on the server of the website. The following data is logged:

  • Visited website
  • Time at the time of access
  • Amount of data sent in bytes
  • Source / reference from which you came to the site
  • Browser used
  • Operating system used
  • Used IP address

The server log files are stored for a maximum of 7 days and then deleted. The storage of the data is done for security reasons, for example to clarify cases of abuse. If data must be revoked for reasons of proof, they are excluded from the deletion until the incident has been definitively clarified.

Performance measurement & cookies

This website uses cookies for pseudonymized performance measurement. These cookies are transmitted either from our server or the third party server to the user’s browser. Cookies are small files that are stored on your device. Your browser accesses these files. The use of cookies increases the user-friendliness and security of this website.

If you do not want to save performance-measuring cookies on your device, you may object to the use of these files here:

Cookie deactivation page of the European website: http://optout.networkadvertising.org/?c=1#!/

Popular browsers offer the preference option of not allowing cookies. Note: There is no guarantee that you will be able to access all features of this website without restrictions if you make the appropriate settings.

Collection and processing of personal data

The website operator collects, uses and transfers your personal data only if this is permitted by law or if you consent to the collection of data.

Personal information is all information that is used to identify your person and which can be traced back to you – such as your name, email address and telephone number.

You can also visit this website without giving any personal information. To improve our online offer, however, we (without personal reference) store your access data on this website. These access data include for example, the file you requested or the name of your Internet service provider. Due to the anonymization of the data, conclusions about your person are not possible.

Google Analytics

Due to our legitimate interests, this website uses “Google Analytics” for optimization and analysis of our online offer within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. DSGVO.  “Google Analytics” is offered by Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheater Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA). The service (Google Analytics) uses “cookies” – text files that are stored on your device. The information collected by the cookies is usually sent to a Google server in the US and stored there.

Google LLC complies with European data protection law and is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement: https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active

This website uses IP anonymization. The IP address of the users is shortened within the member states of the EU and the European Economic Area and in the other contracting states of the agreement. Only in individual cases, the IP address is transferred unshortened to the United States to a Google server and shortened there. This shortening of the IP address eliminates the personal reference of your IP address. The user’s IP address provided by the browser will not be combined with other data stored by Google.

The data collected by Google on our behalf will be used to evaluate the use of our online offering by individual users, such as, for example, to generate activity reports on the website to improve our online offering.

You have the option to prevent the storage of cookies on your device by making the appropriate settings in your browser. There is no guarantee that you will be able to access all functions of this website without restrictions if your browser does not allow cookies.

Furthermore, you can use a browser plug-in to prevent the information collected by cookies (including your IP address) from being sent to Google Inc. and used by Google Inc. The following link leads you to the corresponding plugin: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de

Alternatively, by clicking on this link you prevent Google Analytics from collecting data about you within this website. By clicking on the link above you download an “opt-out cookie”. Your browser must therefore allow the storage of cookies in principle. If you delete your cookies regularly, you will need to click on the link each time you visit this website.
