Data privacy statement

Scope
This data privacy statement applies to the Internet services of ASK Chemicals GmbH.

It serves to clarify the type, extent and purpose of the collection and use of personal data on these web pages.

Personal data
Personal data are information that can be used to learn about your personal or material circumstances. Information that, with a reasonable effort, we cannot use to identify you personally, e.g. because it has been pseudonymized or anonymized, is not personal data.

General information
When you visit our website, general information is automatically recorded and stored in the server log files. The service log files include

• your browser type and version
• the operating system you use
• the referrer URL (the web page you previously visited)
• the time of the server request
• your IP address.

It is not possible for us to use this general information to identify a particular individual. The server log files are a technical tool for us to rectify bugs on our website.

Contact requests
You have the possibility of contacting us at some points. We use the information communicated in this process for the purpose of processing your inquiry. Please note, however, that contact requests sent by e-mail, for example, or forms that are transmitted unencrypted over the Internet are not sufficiently protected against unauthorized access by third parties.

Analysis services
Our website uses Piwik, a web analytics platform. Piwik uses cookies, i.e. text files that are stored on your computer and that allow us to analyze the use of our website. To this end, the usage information generated by the cookie (including your abbreviated IP address) is transmitted to our server and stored for usage analysis purposes, which we use to optimize our website. Your IP address is immediately anonymized in this process, so that you remain anonymous to us as a user. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is not disclosed to third parties. You can prevent the use of the cookies by setting your browser software not to accept them; however, this may result in you being unable to use all of the functions of this website to their full extent.
If you do not agree to the storage and evaluation of this data from your visit, then you can subsequently object to its storage and use at any time with a click of your mouse. In this event, an opt-out cookie will be stored in your browser, which will instruct Piwik not to collect any session data of any kind.

Note: If you delete your cookies, the opt-out cookie will also be deleted as a result, and you will then have to reactivate it.

Objection:

Cookies
Our web pages sometimes use cookies, which help us make our offer more user-friendly, more effective and more secure. Cookies are small text files that are filed on your computer and stored by your browser. Most of the cookies that we use are session cookies and are characterized by the fact that they are automatically deleted at the end of the browser session. Other cookies remain on your computer system (persistent cookies). You can of course reject cookies at any time if your browser allows this. Please consult the program help files to see how you can set up your browser in this way.

Amendment of the data privacy statement
We reserve the right to amend this data privacy statement from time to time by updating this website. We therefore recommend that you visit this site regularly in order to ensure that you agree with the changes.
