Privacy policy

J. P. Sauer & Sohn GmbH guarantees that any user data will be collected, processed, stored and used only for matters related to customer queries or for internal purposes. Any disclosure of addresses to third parties, in particular to commercial address dealers or other companies, is excluded.

If the customer objects to the active use of his or her data for internal purposes by J. P. Sauer & Sohn GmbH, the customer may refuse the use and processing of this data pursuant to Article 28, Section 4 of the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG). The customer may inform us of this by sending an e-mail to datenschutz@sauer.de. The special case of a legally imposed blocking of data instead of a deletion of data pursuant to Article 35 Section 3 of the German Federal Data Protection Act remains unaffected.

Data collection and logging for system-related and statistical purposes

For technical reasons, the internet browser of the customer automatically transfers data to the web server every time the website is accessed.

Logged data consists of the following: date and time of access, URL of the referring website, name of file accessed, data volume transferred, browser type and version, operating system and IP address of the customer. This data is anonymous and cannot be assigned to a specific person. The saved data will only be evaluated internally and for statistical purposes.

Use of cookies

A cookie will be sent to the user’s browser during his first visit to this web site. The cookie is stored on the user’s hard drive. The cookie serves solely to establish whether a user on the website has visited it before.

Note – Use of Google Analytics

The J. P. Sauer & Sohn GmbH website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (‘Google’).

Google Analytics uses so-called ‘cookies’, which are small text files that are stored on the user’s computer and enable an analysis of the use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about the use of this website (including the user’s IP address) will be transmitted to a Google server in the USA (third-party country, therefore relevant to data protection) and stored there.

Google will use this information to evaluate the use of the website, to create reports on website activity for the website operators and to provide other services related to the website and internet use. Google may also transfer this information to third parties when required by law or when such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf.

Google Analytics Add-on – J. P. Sauer & Sohn GmbH has altered the code of Google Analytics for the protection of its users. The user’s IP address is abbreviated to preclude precise geo-localization.

If a user wants to prevent his data from being used by Google Analytics, he can download and install the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on, which is available on the Google website at http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.

J. P. Sauer & Sohn GmbH assumes no liability for any error caused by use of this add-on. Alternatively, the customer can adjust the security setting in his browser. Further information can be found in the instruction manual of the respective browser.

Right of information from Google

The customer has the right to obtain information from Google at any time on his data stored by Google and to request erasing of this data. The customer can contact Google directly at: Google, Legal Department, Belgrave House, 76 Buckingham Palace Road, London SW1W 9TQ, Great Britain.

Use of Facebook plugins

J. P. Sauer & Sohn GmbH uses plugins of the social network facebook.com, operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (‘Facebook’).

When the customer visits the J. P. Sauer & Sohn GmbH website with such a plugin, a connection to the Facebook servers is established and the plugin will be loaded onto this webpage by notifying the user’s browser. This way, the Facebook servers are notified of the user’s visit to the J. P. Sauer & Sohn GmbH website. If the customer is logged in as a member of Facebook, this information is assigned by Facebook to his personal user account.

The customer’s use of the plugin features (e.g. clicking the ‘Like’ button or leaving a comment) also assigns this information to the customer’s Facebook account, which can only be prevented by the customer logging out of his Facebook account before using the plugin.

More detailed information on the collection and use of data by Facebook and about the user’s rights and options for protecting his privacy can be found in the privacy policy of Facebook.

By using this website, the customer agrees to the terms outlined under ‘Use of Facebook plugins’.

Sauer & Sohn GmbH shall inform the customer, in writing in accordance with applicable law, about all personal data concerning him that are stored by J. P. Sauer & Sohn GmbH.
