We appreciate that you visited our website and thank you for interest in our company. United Initiators GmbH & Co. KG (hereinafter referred to as United Initiators) is committed to protecting your privacy. United Initiators is aware that the security of your private information from the use of our website (or use of an online application that contains a link to this statement) is an important concern. That is why this Privacy Statement details the steps we take to protect your personal information when you visit our website. It also covers information we receive when you contact us (e.g. to submit a comment or query) and is designed to inform you about our security measures in protecting data, which data we collect and how we process data.
Which personal data is collected and processed?
Generally, you can visit our website without entering any personal information. We will receive personal data from you if you contact us via the “contact us” function provided on our website. In this context, we might receive your email address, your name or other personal information that you provide to us.
As pointed out below, we also collect information about your visit to our website, including what pages you view, the number of bytes transferred, the links you click, the materials you access and other actions taken within our website. We do not collect personal information about our visitors from other sources, such as public records, or private organizations.
Is personal data forwarded to third parties?
We will provide your personal data to third parties only if necessary for the rendering of services to you (e.g. if you contact us with a specific request via the “contact us” function) or if this is legally required. Outside of such required disclosures, we will not disclose, permit the use of or otherwise market your personal data to other companies or institutions without receiving an express declaration of consent from you.
In case personal data may be passed on to an external service provider, we have taken technical and organizational measures to ensure that we are in material compliance with the applicable data protection laws and regulations.
We retain personal data for as long as is necessary to perform a service you have requested or to which you have given consent, provided no legal requirements exist to the contrary (e.g. pending litigation, record retention pursuant to trade or tax regulations).
Statistical analyses and cookies
As we are constantly endeavoring to achieve a continuous process of improvement in both our service offerings and your own experience on our website, we conduct statistical analyses on the use of our website. For this purpose we use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc., to gather anonymous statistical and analytical information about how users use our website.
You may opt-out of Google Analytics cookies by using a browser add-on provided by Google Inc. which is available under http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout. You can also adjust the settings of your web browser to block and delete cookies by following the instructions provided under http://www.aboutcookies.org/.
We have taken technical and organizational steps to protect the personal data which you provide against unauthorized access, use and disclosure. Our security measures are continuously reviewed and revised based on the latest technology.
The continuous development of the Internet may require us to adjust our Privacy Statement and data protection rules from time to time. We reserve the right to amend this Privacy Statement at any time.
International transfers of personal information
The personal information that you provide to us when you contact us may be sent to the United States (e.g. if this is necessary to process US related requests) or to any other country in which United Initiators or its agents or suppliers maintain facilities. We may also store and process the information there in line with applicable data protection regulation. Although the laws that protect personal information in those countries may differ from the laws where you live, we will take reasonable steps to ensure that your privacy is protected.
