USE OF COOKIES


On some of our websites, we use cookies. Cookies are small files that are stored on your computer. Most of the cookies we use are deleted from your hard ware after the browser is closed. Other cookies remain on your computer and allow us to recognise it and you by your user name when you visit the website next time, and spare you from re-entering the password or filling out forms with your data for your next orders.

You can set your computer so that you are informed about the usage of the cookies or set on the “private mode” on the computer, so that no cookies can be stored. In this way, the usage of cookies is transparent to you. We use the collected data only in an anonymous form, so there is no single profile of your online behavior. If you have ruled out the usage of cookies, your use of our website may be restricted.


GOOGLE ANALYTICS


To constantly adapt our supplies to the wishes of our users, we evaluate the visits on our web pages using Google Analytics. Google Analytics is a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”). The information generated from the cookie about the usage of this website by users are usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. If IP anonymisation is activated on this website, the IP addresses of users from Google will be truncated within Member States of the European Union or other countries party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the complete IP address be

transmitted to a Google server in the USA and truncated there.

The IP-anonymisation is on this website activated. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate the use of the site by users, to summarise reports on website activities, and to provide further services related to the websites’ usage and internet usage over the website operator. The IP-address within the scope of Google Analytics transmitted from your browser will not be merged with other data from Google. You can also prevent the data generated by cookies and related to your use of the Website (including your IP address) from Google and prevent the processing of these data by Google by downloading and installing a browser plugin available the following link: tools.google.com/dIpageigaoptout


SOCIAL NETWORKS


We offer you the means of enabling the access to social networks at different places on our websites.

Please note that the activation of social plugins has the consequence that certain data can be transmitted to the provider of social media services, namely

 

• the address of the website where the social plugin is activated

 

• date and time of the call to the website or the activation of the Social Plugins

• your current IP address

 

• information about the browser used and the operating system used

 

At the time of activation of the social plugins, if you are already logged in on the appropriate social media service, the provider of social media services is also able to determine from the data the user name, and even the real name. This data can also be processed in countries outside the European Union by the provider of social media services. We have no influence in the field of the means and purpose of the data processing by

the provider of social media services. Therefore please note that the provider of the social media service is perfectly capable of creating pseudonymous user profiles and even personalised files with your data. Youcan deactivate the activated social media  plugins at any time.

This, however, does not affect the data that has been previously transferred to the provider of the social media service. To prevent unintended clicking and therefore unwanted data transfer to the social media service, we have incorporated two-click activation and use. You can recognize disabled social plugins by the fact that they become clearer when touched with the mouse. No external content is loaded and no data is transmitted. When you click for the first time on the social plugin, you activate it. The social plugin then lights up. Here too we have installed two-clicks activation and use. You can now use the social plugin by clicking on it a second time.


FACEBOOK


Weldebräu GmbH & Co. KG uses the social plugin of the social network facebook.com, which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave., Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA. The plugins are identifiable by the Facebook icon (a white “f” in a circle) and are marked “Facebook Social Plugin”. The list and appearance of the Facebook social plugins can be seen here: http.//developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/.
sweepstakes conducted on Facebook have no other connection with Facebook

Competitions conducted on Facebook have no other connection to Facebook and are not run or sponsored by Facebook itself. We will not pass on your data to Facebook, but have no influence on any other processing of your data by Facebook. It cannot be ruled out that Facebook will use your profile data, for example, to evaluate your habits, personal relationships, preferences, etc. Please note the Facebook privacy policy that applies to the general use of Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/. It is possible to block the Facebook social plugin with add-ons for your browser, for example, the “Facebook Blocker”.

 

WELDE NEWSLETTER


If you have signed up to the Welde newsletter, we will use the data you have provided to contact you about offers and services of our company. When you register for the newsletter, we save your IP address and the date of registration. The purpose of this is merely to have proof on file in the event that a third party misuses an e-mail address and registers for the newsletter without the knowledge of the e-mail address owner.

Your consent to the storage of data, your e-mail address, and its use for sending you the newsletter can be revoked at any time. It can be revoked by clicking on a link in the newsletter itself, in your profile area, or by sending a notice to info@welde.de.
