We, Luft- und Thermotechnik Bayreuth GmbH, welcome your interest in our company and in our products and services, and would like to give you the feeling that your personal data are safe while you are visiting our website.
We want you to know when we collect which data and how we use them. We have put technical and organisational measures in place to ensure that all data privacy regulations are observed by us and by external service providers.
Personal data and the use of data not collected automatically
Personal data are details on the personal and material circumstances of a certain or determinable individual person, i.e. information on your identity. Such details are e.g. name, address, telephone number, e-mail address. For access to our website, we may, in certain cases, require your name and address and also further details enabling us to provide the requested services.
The same applies, for example, to sending information material or replying to individual questions. Where this is necessary, we will draw your attention to this. Moreover, we will save and process only personal data that you disclose to us voluntarily or automatically - as set forth in the section below "Type and use of data collected automatically".
If you have requested us to provide services via our website, normally only such data will be collected that we require for providing the services. If we ask you to disclose further personal data to us, the collection and use of such information is either legally permissible, or you have given us permission in a separate declaration allowing us to collect and use the data in question.
We will collect, process and use the personal data not collected automatically and disclosed to us online only for the purposes advised to you in this Privacy Statement or otherwise on our website. These personal data will not be propagated to third parties without your permission unless a propagation to third parties is necessary for providing the services.
The collection of personal data and their disclosure to public institutions and authorities will only be done in compliance with currently valid legislation or if we are obliged to do so by virtue of a decision made by a court or a regulatory authority. Our employees and the service providers requested by us to deliver services are committed by us to privacy and to observance of the provisions of the German Data Protection Act (Bundesdatenschutzgesetz).
Type and use of data collected automatically
When our website is accessed, the following data are saved automatically for organizational and technical reasons: the names of the web pages you have visited and the operating system and browser type you use, date and time of your visit to our website, the search machines you used, the names of downloaded files and your IP address and cookies under the terms of the sections "Piwik" and "Cookies" of this Privacy Statement.
We assess these automatically collected data in an anonymised or pseudonymised form only for statistical purposes in order to continuously improve our website and to make the design of our offerings on the Internet more attractive. We do not create any user profiles. The anonymous or pseudonymous data are saved separately from personal information on secured systems, and they are not linked to the identity of any individual. Your personal data and your privacy are therefore protected at all times. The use of the data by virtue of the following "Piwik" section will remain unaffected.
You can refuse the use of Google Analytics by clicking on the following link. An opt-out cookie will be set on the computer, which prevents the future collection of your data when visiting this website: Disable Google Analytics
Further information concerning the terms and conditions of use and data privacy can be found at http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/gb.html or at https://www.google.de/intl/en_uk/policies/. Please note that on this website, Google Analytics code is supplemented by “anonymizeIp” to ensure an anonymized collection of IP addresses (so called IP-masking).
When you visit our website, this may mean that not only Piwik cookies are set up, but also that we place information on your computer in the shape of a cookie.
When this happens, no user data are stored except the IP address. The information received through the cookies is used to recognize you the next time you visit our website and to make navigation easier for you. For example, cookies allow us to match a web page to your interests or to save your password so that you need not enter it each time.
Needless to say you can also look at our website without cookies. If you do not want us to recognise your computer, you can prevent cookies from being saved on your hard disk by selecting "Do not accept cookies" in your browser settings. How this works exactly is described in the instructions of your browser maker. If you do not accept cookies, you may not be able to use all the features of our website, e.g. when logging in to our content management system.
We have taken technical and organizational security precautions in order to protect your personal data from loss, destruction, manipulation and unauthorized access. All our employees and all third parties involved on our behalf in data processing have been committed to observe the German Data Protection Act (Bundesdatenschutzgesetz) and to confidentiality in handling personal data.
Our security precautions are continuously revised to keep abreast with latest technological developments.
Amendment of our privacy regulations
We reserve the right to amend our security and privacy measures where this becomes necessary due to technical or legal developments. In these cases we will also amend our reference notes relating to privacy. Please therefore always consider the most recent update of our Privacy Statement.
If you use external links that are offered on our website, this Privacy Statement does not apply to these links. When we offer links, we strive to ensure that our privacy and security standards are also observed by these. We do not, however, have any influence on compliance with privacy and security regulations by other suppliers or providers. Please therefore also consider the privacy statements on the websites of other suppliers or providers.
