BD I SENSORS has therefore drawn up this information about data processing which explains how your data is handled.

§ 1 Personal data

 1. BD I SENSORS collects, processes and utilises your personal data only with your consent or if a piece of legislation permits this. BD I SENSORS will only collect, process and utilise that personal data that is required for carrying out and utilising the services of BD I SENSORS or that you provide to BD I SENSORS voluntarily.

§ 3 Automatic data recording by cookies

Cookies are small files which are stored on your data storage device and save specific settings and data for exchange with our system via your browser. A distinction can fundamentally be made between two different types of cookies. There are both "session cookies" and temporary or permanent cookies. Whereas session cookies are deleted as soon as you close your browser, temporary and permanent cookies are stored on your data storage device for a longer period of time or indefinitely. This storage helps us to configure our offers to suit you, but also makes it easier for you to use our website. The fact that certain entries that you make are saved means they do not need to be repeated. The following data is automatically recorded when the website of BD I SENSORS is called up by means of cookies by the computer system of BD I SENSORS:

  • your internet address (IP address),
  • browser type and version,
  • website from which you access the website of BD I SENSORS (referrer URL),
  • operating system used,
  • website from which you are redirected to other websites,
  • date and time of your access.

This data is stored separately from your other data that you might specify to BD I SENSORS. The data is not linked to your other data. It is evaluated for statistical purposes to enable BD I SENSORS to optimise its website and other offers. The data is deleted after it has been evaluated. If you do not wish cookies to be used, you can block such use in your browser. The possibility that this will have an adverse effect on the functionality of the website of BD I SENSORS cannot be ruled out.

§ 4 Collection and processing of data when Google Analytics is used

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service offered by Google Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics uses what are called "cookies", text files which are stored on your computer and allow analysis of the way you use the website. The information which is generated by the cookie about your use of this website is rendered anonymous so that it can no longer be linked to a particular source. However, in the event that IP anonymisation is enabled on this website, your IP address will be shortened by Google beforehand within Member States of the European Union or in other Contracting States of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there.

On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports about the website activities for the website operators, and to offer further services which are connected with use of the website and the internet. Under no circumstances will Google combine your IP address with other data from Google. You can prevent the installation of the cookies by adjusting an appropriate setting in your browser software; BD I SENSORS wishes to point out to you though that, if you do this, you may not be able to utilise all of the functions of this website to their full extent.

You can also prevent the recording of the data which is generated by the cookie and relates to your use of the website (including your IP address) to Google and the processing of this data by Google by downloading a browser add-on for deactivating Google Analytics and installing it for your browser. You will find the deactivation add-on here: support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245
. You can find more information about this at tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout or at tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout (general information about Google Analytics and privacy). We wish to point out to you that on this website Google Analytics has been expanded to include the code "gat._anonymizeIp();" in order to ensure anonymous recording of IP addresses (known as IP masking).
