Privacy protection information

We appreciate your visit to our website and your interest in our company. To assure you of our responsible management of your personal data we make transparent what happens to the data accumulated and what security precautions we undertake for you. You will also be informed of your statutorily established rights in connection with processing this data.

Personal data

When you visit our website we generally need no personal data from you. We only take notice of information regarding the name of your Internet Service Provider and our web pages that you access. As an Internet user you will remain anonymous, however, because we analyze this information only for statistical purposes (e.g. number of times individual web pages have been accessed). 

In addition, personal data is collected only if you provide on your own accord, for example, to conclude or initiate a contract, to have us send informational material to you or to participate in a survey. Data that you provide to use in connection with our website is stored, processed and used only for purposes of initiating and administering contracts and processing your queries. Your data is also processed and used for purposes of consulting, advertising and market and opinion research if you have given your consent. You can, of course, withdraw your consent at any time.

Currently the data is still transmitted unencrypted so that the possibility cannot be excluded that unauthorized third parties can also read this data on its transmission path. There is, however, the possibility of using alternative communication paths (e.g. postal mail or fax) that offer more security than unencrypted e-mail.

User profiles / consent

User profiles are not created. If we intend to create user profiles in the future, we will inform you of our intention in a timely manner after you visit our website so that you will have the option to object. We will then honor your wish, of course, and not create a profile for you.

Using and passing on personal data / purpose limitation

We will collect, process and use all the personal data that we gather from you in the course of using our web pages only for the specified purpose. We note that this will occur only within the framework of the applicable legal provisions or only with your consent. You may cancel any approvals granted at any time by e-mail to datenschutz@veltec-services.com. The cancellation will then apply to future data collection. Your data will not be sold, leased or made available otherwise to third parties. Personal data will be submitted to government offices or authorities only within the scope of mandatory national legal provisions.

With these cookies we can analyze how users use our web pages, allowing us to design the website content to meet the needs of our visitors. Cookies also give us the ability to measure the effectiveness of a particular ad and its placement, depending on the thematic user interests, for example.

Most of the cookies we use are so-called ‘session cookies’. They are automatically deleted after your visit.

Most web browsers accept cookies automatically. But as a rule you can also change the settings of your browser if you would rather not transmit the information. Generally, you may nevertheless use the features of our website without restrictions. In some cases, however, it can lead to functional limitations to our offers.

Google Tag Manager

This website uses Google Tag Manager. This service allows administration of website tags through an interface. Google Tag Manager only implements tags, which means that cookies are not used and personal data is not recorded. Google Tag Manager triggers other tags that may record data; however, Google Tag Manager does not access this data. If an deactivation was implemented on the domain or cookie level, all tracking tags will remain deactivated provided they are implemented with Google Tag Manager.

Google Analytics and Remarketing

The Veltec website uses the web analysis service Google Analytics of Google Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics uses “cookies”. Cookies are text files which are saved on your computer and allow the analysis of the website use. The information produced by the cookie on your use of our website will be transmitted to and stored on a Google server in the USA. In the event of IP anonymization being activated, your IP address will however be shortened beforehand within member states of the European Union or in other states signed up to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases your full IP address will be transmitted to a Google server in the USA, where it will be shortened. Google will use this information on behalf of the operator of this website to evaluate your use of the website, compiling reports on website activities and perform further services related to the use of the website and internet usage for the website operator.
The IP address transmitted by your browser while using Google Analytics will not be combined with other data held by Google. You can avoid cookies from being stored with a setting in your browser. Please consider that in this case you may not have full use of all of the functionalities on our website.
You may also prevent information generated by the cookie and relating to your use of the website (including your IP address) being collected and processed by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following link http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de. Regarding the use of analysis tools with full IP addresses, we would like to point out that our website uses Google Analytics with the extension "_anonymizeIp()” and therefore IP addresses are only processed in shortened form in order to prevent a direct link to an individual.

We use remarketing technology of Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; “Google“). With this technology, we serve targeted ads on Google Partner network pages to users who have visited and shown interest in our web pages and online services in the past. The ads are shown using cookies, which are small text files that analyze user behavior during website visits and are thereafter used for targeted product recommendations and personalized ads. If you do not wish to use Google’s remarketing function, you may generally deactivate it by changing the relevant settings at http://www.google.com/settings/ads or https://www.google.de/settings/ads/onweb#display_optout. Alternatively, you may visit the Network Advertising Initiative’s website to opt out of the use of cookies for personalized advertising by following the instructions shown: http://www.networkadvertising.org/managing/opt_out.asp.
