This data protection notice applies to the Internet presence provided by LABOM Mess- und Regeltechnik GmbH.

1. Processing of personal and non-personal data

1.1 Surfing on our Internet site

As a rule, you can visit our Internet presence without telling us who you are. When you visit our Internet presence, we are

- only informed of your IP address,
- the name of the Internet site and/or file being accessed and the time of accessing and leaving the Internet site,
- the transferred data quantity and
- whether accessing or leaving the site was successful.  

The data is only used in order to administer and optimise the Internet service.

The IP address can be a personal date, since under certain circumstances it is possible to trace the identity of the owner of the Internet connection which is being used by means of the provision of information.  

The IP address will only be used by us in case of attacks against our Internet infrastructure. In such a case, we have a legitimate interest in the processing of the IP address under Article 6 Paragraph 1 f) GDPR. This legitimate interest arises from the need to defend against the attack against the Internet infrastructure, to determine the origin of the attack, to take criminal and civil action against the person responsible and to effectively prevent further attacks.

The IP address is deleted, once we can exclude the possibility that an attack against our Internet infrastructure originated from it. This generally takes place after 7 days.

1.2 Use of cookies

Cookies are also used in our Internet service. Cookies are small data packages which are stored on the hard drive of your computer via the browser. These serve the purpose of managing the Internet connection during your visit or during a subsequent visit to our websites and therefore make the visit more comfortable.

Some browsers allow cookies in the basic settings. Should you not want these, you can alter the setting of your browser. Please read the instructions of your browser provider in order to find out how to do this. Should you decide against cookies, it may be the case that parts of our Internet service cannot be used.

1.3 Tracking and web analysis services

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. ("Google").

Google Analytics also uses "cookies". Information about your use of this website generated by the cookie is generally transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. This website uses Google Analytics with the "anonymizeIp()“ extension. By means of this, IP addresses are shortened first by Google within Member States of the European Union or in other Member States of the European Economic Area. By means of this, direct tracing of persons in the course of the further processing is excluded. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transmitted to a Google server in the USA and abbreviated there. Google will use this information, on behalf of the operator of this website to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activities and to provide further services associated with the use of the website and the use of the Internet for the website operator. The IP transmitted by your browser within the scope of Google Analytics, will not be associated with other data from Google.

You can prevent the storage of cookies by selecting the appropriate setting on your browser software, but we would point out that, if you do so, you may be unable to use the full functions of this website.

You can also prevent Google from recording and processing the data generated by your cookie about your use of the website (including your IP address) by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available via the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.

You can opt-out from Analytics tracking by clicking on this link: turn off Google Analytics .

The use of Google Analytics takes place in accordance with the requirements agreed between the German data protection authorities and Google.
