We are pleased to have you on our website and want to thank you for your interest in our products as well as in our company. We recognize and respect your need for privacy and security as you visit our site or use our produts. So please note the following information:

Anonymous data collection

When you visit our site to view any pages, read product information or use our demos, you do so without telling us who you are and without revealing any personal information.

The only information we normally collect and store is:

  • the name of your Internet service provider
  • the web site that referred you to us (if any)
  • the date and time the pages were accessed
  • the page or pages you requested
  • geographic information

While we do not collect identifying information about visitors to our site, we do use standard software to collect information for the strict purpose of tracking activity on our site (We use Google Analytics, see right for details). This allows us to better understand how many people use our site and which pages and features are most popular.

Collection and processing of personal data

There are instances where you may elect to provide us with personal information. If you fill out one of our feedback or request forms or send us an email, you are transmitting the information that appears to you in the form or the message. This will typically include information like your name, email address, the kind of request you are making, and any other information necessary to fulfill your request. You never transmit personally identifying information that you do not enter yourself. And this is always your option; this information cannot be collected unless you specifically elect to send it to us. This information is used internally only for the purpose of fulfilling the request or for contacting you directly and is not given or sold to any other organization. 

Usage and transfer of personal data

We save and use your personal data only for the specific purpose for which you intended i.e. agreed. The use of the personal data for any other purpose can only be effected when it is legal to do so. We will use your personal data for marketing, market research or tailored media services only if you agreed on it.

Information about collected data

If you want to know which information we store about you please use the email at the end of this site to get in contact. We will completely delete all those information from our server upon your request.

Cookie Information

Currently we do not use cookies but Google analytics does (see below).

Cookies are small text files many web sites save to your computer once a page is loaded. Cookies are a controversial means of tracking since their introduction in the mid 1990ies by Netscape. These files compromise your pricavy since they reveal and communicate a number of private details (eg during registration). On the other hand, cookies do provide some convenience like storing your language preference for your next visit. We do recommend to set up your browser in a way that the lifetime of cookies is limited to one session, that means all cookies are deleted once you close your browser.

Further information about cookies is availble at Mozilla or Wikipedia.
