8. Links to other websites

Our offer contains links to external third party websites; the content of such websites lies beyond our control. Therefore, we cannot assume any liability for these external contents. For the contents of linked pages, the respective provider or operator assumes liability at all times. The linked pages were checked for potential legal violations at the point in time of linkage. At the point in time of linkage, no illegal contents were recognizable. A permanent check of the contents of the linked pages, however, is not reasonable without concrete indications for a legal violation. Once legal infringements become known, such links will be removed by us immediately.

The online offer contains links to other websites. We have no control over the operators of other websites when it comes to complying with the data protection regulations. HERMETIC-Pumpen GmbH as provider assumes responsibility for their own contents according to the applicable laws. Links to the contents provided by other suppliers shall be differentiated from such own contents. HERMETIC-Pumpen GmbH shall not assume any responsibility for contents which are provided for use via links and marked specifically and does not own such contents. The respective provider of the reference website assumes the sole liability for any illegal, incorrect or incomplete contents as well as for any damage resulting from the use or non-use of the information. The editors are only responsible for external indications if they have positive knowledge about them, i.e. including about a possibly illegal and/or incriminating contents, and it is technically possible and reasonable to prevent their use.

9. Cookies

The website uses cookies. Cookies do not damage your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies serve the purpose of making our offer user-friendly, effective and safer. Cookies are small text files which are placed on your computer and stored by your browser. Most of the cookies that we use are “session cookies”. They are automatically erased at the end of your session. Other cookies will remain stored on your end device until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognise your browser when you visit our website next. You can set your browser in a way that you will be informed about the placement of cookies and cookies will only be allowed in individual cases, exclude the acceptance of cookies for specific cases or in general and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. When deactivating cookies, the function of this website may be restricted. Cookies required for implementing the electronic communication process or for providing specific functions desired by you (e.g. basket functions) will be stored based on article 6, section 1, lit. f of the GDPR. The website provider has a legitimate interest in the storage of cookies for the technically impeccable and optimized provision of their services. If other cookies (e.g. cookies for analysing the surfing behaviour) are stored, these cookies are treated separately in the data protection declaration.

10. Google Analytics

This website uses functions of the Google Analytics web analysis service. This service is provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Google Analytics uses “cookies”. These are text files which are stored on your computer and enable an analysis of your website use. The information on your use of this website created by the cookies is generally transferred to a Google server in the US and stored there. The storage of Google Analytics cookies is based on article 6, section 1, lit. f of the GDPR. The website provider has a legitimate interest in the analysis of the user behaviour to optimize their web offering and their advertising.


11. Google Analytics Remarketing

Our websites use the functions of Google Analytics Remarketing in connection with the cross-device functions of Google AdWords and Google DoubleClick. This service is provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. This function enables a connection of the advertising target groups created with Google Analytics Remarketing with the cross-device functions of Google AdWords and Google DoubleClick. By doing so, interest-related personalised advertising messages, which have been adapted to you depending on your previous user and surfing behaviour on n end device (e.g. mobile phone), can also be displayed on another end device (e.g. tablet or PC). If you have granted a corresponding agreement, Google will link your web and your app browser history to your Google account for this purpose. By doing so, on every end device via which you connect to your Google account, the same personalized advertising messages can be activated. To support this function, Google Analytics will record user IDs which have been authenticated by Google and which are temporarily linked to our Google Analytics data in order to define and create the target groups for the cross-device advertising. You can permanently object the cross-device remarketing/targeting by deactivating personalised advertising in your google account; for this purpose, follow this link: https://www.google.com/settings/ads/onweb/ . The summary of the recorded data in your Google account is realized exclusively based on your approval, which you can provide to or object at Google (article 6, section 1, lit. a, GDPR). In the event of data recording processes which are not linked in your Google account (e.g. because you do not have a Google account or because you objected the link), the data collection is based on article 6, section 1, lit. f, GDPR. The legitimate interest results from the fact that the website operator has an interest in the anonymised analysis of the website visitors for advertising purposes. Further information and the data protection regulations are provided in the Google data protection declaration under: https://www.google.com/policies/technologies/ads/.

12. Google AdWords and Google Conversion Tracking

This website uses Google AdWords. AdWords is an online advertising programme of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States (“Google”). In the framework of Google AdWords, we use the so-called conversion tracking. If you click onto an advertisement activated by Google, a cookie for the conversion tracking is set. Cookies are small text files which are stored on the computer of the user by the internet browser. The cookies become invalid after 30 days and are not used for the personal identification of the user. If the user visits certain pages of this website and if the cookie has not yet expired, Google and we can recognize that the user has clicked onto the advertisement and was forwarded to this page. Every Google AdWords customer receives another cookie. The cookies cannot be traced back via the websites of AdWords customers. The information collected with the conversion cookie is used for creating conversion statistics for AdWords customers who have opted for conversion tracking. The customers are informed about the overall number of users who have clicked onto their ad and were forwarded to a page equipped with conversion tracking tag. However, they will not receive any information with which users can be personally identified. If you do not wish to participate in the tracking, you can object this use by deactivating the cookie of the Google conversion tracking via your internet browser, under user settings. You will then no longer be included in the conversion tracking statistics. The storage of conversion cookies is realized based on article 6, section 1, lit. f, GDPR. The website provider has a legitimate interest in the analysis of the user behaviour to optimize their web offering and their advertising. Further information on Google AdWords and Google conversion tracking can be found in the data protection provisions of Google: https://www.google.de/policies/privacy/. You can set your browser in a way that you will be informed about the placement of cookies and cookies will only be allowed in individual cases, exclude the acceptance of cookies for specific cases or in general and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. When deactivating cookies, the function of this website may be restricted.

13. Newsletter

If you register for our newsletter, the data provided by you will be mainly used for this purpose. For the registration for the newsletter we need your email address. To check whether the registration has really been sent by the holder of an email address, we use the “double opt-in procedure”. For this purpose, we log the order of the newsletter, the sending of the confirmation email and the receipt of the response requested in this respect. No other data will be collected. For improving our newsletter service, i.e. for the prevention of multiple orders, we will transfer the email address transferred by you to our European subsidiaries for comparison. There, your email address will be used for this purpose exclusively. The data is not forwarded to third parties. The agreement to the storage of your personal data and their utilisation for sending the newsletter can be revoked at all times. A corresponding link is provided towards the end of each newsletter. Additionally, you can inform us about your corresponding request via email to hermetic@hermetic-pumpen.com.
