4. Web analysis with Google Analytics

Google Analytics uses "cookies", which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. This is also our legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f DSGVO.

The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, if IP anonymisation is activated on this website, Google will reduce your IP address within Member States of the European Union or in other states party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area beforehand. The full IP address will only be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there in exceptional cases. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide the website operator with other services relating to website and internet use. The IP address transmitted by your browser in the context of Google Analytics is not merged with other Google data.

Please note that the code "gat._anonymizeIp();" has been added to Google Analytics on this website to ensure anonymous collection of IP addresses (so-called IP masking).

5. Data provided by yourself

If you use the application system or a contact form on our website, you provide us with your data including your last name and your e-mail address.

The newsletter can be cancelled at any time by clicking on the corresponding link at the end of the e-mail. You can also revoke this consent at any time with effect for the future by e-mail to marketing@EXXETA.com

We will only disclose your data to third parties if this is required by law. If permitted under applicable laws, we may share your information with other companies in the EXXETA Group.

We use service providers, some of whom also process data on our behalf. For example, we use third-party companies for web hosting, application management and maintenance services. To the extent necessary for the provision of the agreed services, we grant these service providers access to personal data. The service providers are contractually obliged to treat all data strictly confidential. They are also contractually prohibited from processing the data for purposes other than those agreed. We do everything necessary to ensure that our service providers also respect the confidentiality of your data.

9. Storage time
Unless specifically stated, we only store personal data as long as it is necessary to fulfil the purposes pursued.

In some cases, the legislator provides for the storage of personal data, for example in tax or commercial law. In these cases, the data will only be stored by us for these legal purposes, but will not be processed in any other way and deleted after expiry of the legal retention period.

10. Changes to this Privacy Policy
