Revised: 16 May 2018

  1. 1. General
    AQUASYS Technik GmbH takes the protection of data very seriously and treats personal data confidentially and in compliance with the statutory provisions. The general use of our website does not entail personal data to be collected, processed or disclosed to third parties. Personal data is any information that makes it possible to identify an individual or information that can be traced back to an identifiable individual. This includes contact details, such as the name, date of birth, mailing/e-mail address and telephone or mobile number.

    We only collect the personal data you have entered voluntarily and explicitly (e.g. newsletter subscription, contact form).This data is used by us on the basis of your personal declaration of consent. The data provided by you is only used for the purposes stated (e.g., sending the newsletter) and for the purpose of complying with compelling legal obligations (e.g. tax law). Your data will only be used for other purposes or disclosed to a third party with your explicit consent.

    Please note that the transmission of data on the internet is always subject to security gaps. It is not possible to provide complete and gap-free protection of data against unauthorised access. If you have serious concerns, please use other ways to contact us.

  2. 2. Use of cookies on our website
    We use cookies to deliver you a personalised website experience. A cookie is a small text file that we transmit to your computer when you visit our website. A cookie can only contain information that we send to your computer ourselves - personal data cannot be retrieved from it. If you accept cookies on our website, we will not have access to your personal data. The cookies only allow us to identify your computer.

    Most of the cookies we use are deleted from your hard drive at the end of your browser session (so-called session cookies). Other cookies remain on your computer and allow us to recognise your computer on your next visit (so-called permanent cookies).

    If you do not want to benefit from the use of cookies, you can modify the cookie settings in the security settings of your browser. The settings can usually be found in the advanced menu under settings or internet options. Some of the functions offered by our website will however not be available if you have cookies deactivated.

3. Web analysis using Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. (‘Google’). Google Analytics also uses ‘cookies’, which allow for an analysis of your use of our website. The information generated by the cookie regarding your use of our website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. So-called IP anonymisation is activated on our website. Your IP address will first be truncated by Google within the member states of the European Union or other contracting member 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 truncated there. Google uses this information to analyse the use of our website or to compile reports on website activities, as well as to provide other services to AQUASYS in relation to the website and internet usage; these are: the name of your internet service provider, the version of your browser software, your computer’s operating system used to access the website, the website from which you were referred to our website and any search terms you used to find our website. In some circumstances, this data can provide information about a certain visitor to the website. This, however, does not entail the collection and use of any personal data. Such data are used exclusively in an anonymised format. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be linked to any other data held by Google. We would like to point out that Google Analytics was extended on this website by the code ‘gat._anonymizeIp();’ in order to guarantee anonymised collection of IP addresses (so-called IP masking).

You can prevent the installation of cookies by changing the corresponding settings in your browser software; Please note that you may then not be able to use all functions offered on this website.

You can also prevent the transmission of data generated by the cookies about your use of the website (including your IP address) to Google as well as the processing of this data by Google, by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at the following link.

You can find more detailed information on the terms and conditions of use and data protection of Google Analytics at http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html or at https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=en.

4. Social media plug-ins
Certain pages at www.aquasys.at use so-called social media plug-ins, which are easy to identify and allow you to share or link the respective page on your social media accounts (for example, Facebook, LinkedIn, XING). No personal data is collected or processed by AQUASYS in connection with these functions. The respective social media provider may however link the visit to our site with your user account. Please note that as the operator of this website, we do not have any knowledge of the content of the data transferred or of its use by the respective social media provider. If you would like to prevent your social media provider from linking the visit to our website with your user account, we recommend you refrain from using the functions offered by the social media plug-ins.
