Website Analysis


This website uses Google Tag Manager. Thanks to this service, website tags can be managed via an online surface. The Google Tag Manager simply implements tags. This means that no cookies are being used and no personal data are collected. The Google Tool Manager triggers other tags which in turn may collect data. However, the Google Tag Manager does not access these data. If a deactivation was performed at the domain or cookie level, it applies to all tracking tags, provided that they are implemented by the Google Tag Manager.

This site employs Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. ("Google"), by means of the Google Tag Manager. Google Analytics uses so-called "Cookies". These are text files, which are saved to the user's computer and enable an analysis of the website use. The information created by the cookie on the website use of a user are usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and are stored there.

IP anonymisation is enabled on this website. The option of anonymising IP addresses is regulated with the Google Tag Manager via an internal setting which is not visible in the source text of this page. This internal setting is set in a way to achieve the anonymisation of the IP addresses, required by the Telemedia Act. The user’s IP address will be truncated by Google within the area of the Member States of the European Union or other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area prior to transmission. Only in exceptional cases will the whole IP address first be transferred to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. Google will use this information on behalf of the website’s operator for the purpose of evaluating the use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators and providing them with other services relating to website activity and Internet usage.

The IP address that is transmitted by your browser in the scope of Google Analytics will not be associated with other data held by Google. You can opt out of using cookies by selecting the relevant settings in your browser. However please note that, by doing this, you may not be able to take full advantage of this website. Users can prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and relating to their use of the website (including your IP address) by Google, and the processing of this data by Google, by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en 

In order to be able to perform a better analysis and achieve a constant improvement of this website, we activated the Google Analytics Report "performance according to demographic characteristics and interests". In the Google Analytics Reports web analysis data are broken down according to demographic characteristics and interests. In order to collect these data, Google uses third party cookies (e.g. DoubleClick Cookies) amongst other things. You can avoid this data collection by Google analytics by clicking the following link. An opt-out cookie will be put in place, which avoids future collection of your data when visiting this website: deactivate Google Analytics


Cookies


Cookies are small files that allow storing device-related information to the user's access device (PC, smartphone, etc.). They enhance the user friendliness of websites and thus serve the user (e.g. by storing login data). On the other hand they are used to collect statistical data on the website use and analyse them to improve the offer. Users can influence the use of cookies. Most browsers have an option to restrict or completely prevent the storage of cookies. However, it should be noted that the use and particularly the user-friendliness will be limited without cookies.

ENGEL makes use of data collected on its web site for the following reasons:

  • so we can provide you the requested information and services with the best possible quality
  • so we can provide you with a personalised experience on our website

You may change your setting as follows:

Newsletter


The newsletter gives you up-to-date information about us and our offers.

If you would like to receive the newsletter, we require a valid email address as well as information that allows us to verify you as the owner of the indicated email address or that the owner agrees to receive the newsletter. Further data will not be collected. This data will be used only to send the newsletter and will not be disclosed to third parties.

When registering for the newsletter, we log your IP address and the date of registration. This logging is purely for evidence in case a third party has misused an email address and registered it for receiving the newsletter without the knowledge of the email address owner.

You can revoke your consent to the storage of data, the email address and its use for sending the newsletter at any time. This revocation can be made via a link directly in the newsletters, in your profile area or by notice to the above contact details.

Integration of third-party services and content


This online offer may incorporate third party content, such as YouTube movies, maps from Google Maps, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites. This requires that the provider of these contents (hereinafter referred to as "third party") can identify your IP address. Without your IP address, the third party cannot send content to your browser. The IP address is thus required in order to present these contents. We try to use only contents if the providers will use your IP address solely for the purpose of delivering contents. However, we have no control over whether third parties will log your IP address, e.g., for statistical purposes. We will inform the user in case anything to this effect becomes known to us.

Revocation, changes, corrections and updates


You are entitled to receive information on personal data stored about you upon request and free of charge. In addition, you have the right to correct inaccurate data, block and delete your personal data, provided that we do not have a legal obligation to retain your data.

1. Online content


The author assumes no liability for the quality of the information provided, nor gives any guarantee that the information is up-to-date, correct or complete. Liability claims against the author relating to damages of any kind that were caused by use or misuse of the provided information or by the use of incorrect and incomplete information are excluded, unless there is evidence of wilful intent or gross negligence on the part of the author.

2. References and links


The author accepts no liability for direct or indirect references to third-party Internet pages (links), which are beyond the author's control, unless the author is aware of the content of the linked sites, and preventing access of illegal content via these links would have been technically feasible and reasonable. The author therefore explicitly declares that at the time of establishing the links, the corresponding linked pages were free from illegal content. The author has no control whatsoever over the current and future design, and contents of the linked/referenced pages. Therefore, the author hereby specifically distances himself from all contents on linked/referenced sites modified after the links in question were established. This declaration applies to all links and references set within the author's own online content as well as for entries made by third parties in visitor logs, discussion forums, and mailing lists established by the author. Liability for illegal, incorrect or incomplete content, and in particular for damages resulting from use or misuse of such information shall be borne solely by the party providing the linked site and not by the party incorporating the published material published by reference.

Brands and trademarks mentioned in the author's online content that are protected by third parties are without limitation subject to the terms and conditions of the relevant copyright law, and the right of ownership of the registered owner. Referencing to trademarks does not imply that they are not protected by the rights of a third party. The copyright for any material published and created by the author remains solely with the author. Any reproduction or use of such images, audio and video files, and text in any other electronic or printed publication is not permitted without the author's explicit consent.
