Information about the PRIVACY POLICY.

Thank you for visiting our website. We are concerned about the protection of your personal details when they are processed. The information below sets out what details HANIKA Gitarren (also HANIKA hereinafter) collects when you visit our website and how it is processed.

Personal details

Personal details are deemed to be any individual pieces of information concerning the personal or material situation of a specific or identifiable natural person. This includes such information as your correct name, your address, your telephone number and your date of birth. Information that cannot be directly associated with your actual identity, e.g. bookmarked websites or the number of visitors to a page, is deemed to be not personal.

Collection and processing of personal details

When you visit our website, our web servers will for the purposes of system security always automatically and temporarily save the following information: connection data from the requesting computer, the pages you view when you visit our website, the date and duration of the visit, the detected information about the browser and type of operating system you are using as well as the website from which you came to visit us. Additional personal information beyond the above such as your name, address, telephone number or email address is not collected unless you voluntarily provide these details, e.g. within the scope of registration, a survey, participation in a competition or a request for information.

Use and disclosure of personal details

We only use the personal details you provide for the purposes of technically managing the web pages and of fulfilling your requests and requirements, i.e. usually for processing contracts concluded with you, for answering your inquiries or in connection with your participation in a competition.
Only when you have granted your prior consent or – if required by legal regulations – you have not raised any objections, will we also use this data for product-related surveys and marketing purposes. Your personal details will not be disclosed, sold or otherwise transferred to third parties unless it is necessary for the purposes of fulfilling contractual obligations or you have provided your express consent. ANIKA takes all the necessary technical and organisational security precautions to protect your personal details from loss or misuse. Furthermore, HANIKA will oblige its external service providers to comply with the provisions of data-protection laws, to treat personal details as confidential and to delete such details as soon as they are no longer required.

Personal details of children

Due to the fact that the protection of children's privacy is very important, we do not wish to collect, process or use the personal details of people who have not yet turned 18 years of age. If you as a guardian have discovered that your children have provided us with their personal details, you may get in touch with our data-protection officer if you wish this information to be deleted. You will find the data-protection officer's details at the bottom of the page.

Use of cookies

We usually do not use cookies on our web pages. So-called session cookies, which place technical session-control data in your browser's cache, will only be used in exceptional cases. This data does not contain any personal details and will be deleted at the latest when your browser is closed. We will seek your prior express consent if in an exceptional case we also need to save personal details in a cookie. We would also draw your attention to the fact that your browser will usually offer features for controlling cookies.

Google Analytics

This Website uses Google Analytics, a Web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (‘Google’). Google Analytics uses so-called ‘cookies’ which are text files that are saved to your computer and that make it possible to analyse your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about how your use of this website is generally transferred to a Google server located in the USA and saved there. In the event of the feature for anonymising IPs being activated on this website, Google will truncate your IP-address in the member states of the European Union or other signatory states to the Treaty on the European Economic Area before doing so. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server that is located in the USA and then truncated there. Google will use this information on behalf of this website's operator for the purposes of analysing your use of the website, of compiling reports about website activity and of providing the website operator with additional services associated with the use of the website and the Internet. The IP address transferred by your browser within the context of Google Analytics will not be merged with any other data held by Google. You may prevent cookies from being saved by selecting the appropriate settings in your browser software; we would, however, point out that you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website if you do so. You may also prevent the data about how you use the website that is generated by cookies (incl. your IP address) from being collected and prevent Google from processing this data by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following link http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.
Please visit http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de or http://www.google.com/intl/de/analytics/privacyoverview.html for more information (general information about Google Analytics and data protection). We would like to point out that Google Analytics has been extended on this website with the code "gat._anonymizeIp();" in order to ensure that the IP addresses are collected anonymously (so-called IP masking).

Security

HANIKA takes all the necessary technical and organisational security precautions to protect your personal details from loss or misuse. Your details are, for instance, stored in a secure operating environment that is not accessible to the public. We would like to draw your attention to the fact that the confidentiality of any information provided cannot guaranteed should you wish to contact HANIKA via email. The content of emails is open to third parties. We therefore recommend that you only send us confidential information by post.

Freedom of information

We will provide you with information about what details we have stored about your person (e.g. name and address) in response to your written request.

Should you have any questions regarding the processing of your personal details, please contact our data-protection officer who will be at your disposal to deal with any information requests, suggestions or complaints.
