Revocation for data storage
In order to ensure that this website is designed and optimised to suit the specific user needs, anonymized data is recorded and stored using solutions and technology from econda GmbH (http://www.econda.de) and used to create user profiles under pseudonymes. Cookies may be used for this purpose, which enable an Internet browser to be recognised. However, user profiles are not compiled with data via the carrier of the pseudonym without the express permission of the visitor. IP addresses in particular are made unrecognisable immediately after the user has entered the website, making it impossible to assign user profiles to IP addresses. Visitors to this website can refuse consent to record and store this data for the future here at any time.
The internet sites connected with the Lapp e-Shop use "cookies" at numerous points. They serve to make the website more user-friendly, more effective and more secure. Cookies are small text files which enable the user to be identified again. They are stored on the customer's computer and are saved by its browser. Most of the cookies used by Lapp are so-called "session cookies". These are deleted once the user leaves the webpage.
However, Lapp also uses "permanent cookies" to retain information about users who repeatedly access a Lapp internet site. This allows for an optimal user interface as well as offering customers who make repeated visits as diversified an internet page as possible, with new content. The content of the permanent cookies is restricted to an identification number. Names, IP addresses, etc. are not saved.
It is also possible to browse the range without using cookies. Customers have the option of altering their browser's settings to deactivate the storage of cookies, restrict them to certain websites or to inform them as soon as a cookie is sent. Customers can also delete cookies from their hard drives (in the "Cookies" folder). However, if this option is selected there will be restrictions on how the webpage is displayed and also to their user interface.
Cookies do not cause damage, nor do they contain viruses.
If a customer wishes to receive the newsletter offered on the website, Lapp Muller requires a valid e-mail address as well as information which confirms that the e-mail account holder has given their consent to receive the newsletter. Any further details will not be collected. Your consent to the retention of data, e-mail addresses and to receive the newsletter can be withdrawn at any future time.
Right to information
The customer shall retain the right to view its stored personal data at any time and without charge via the operator, obtain information on its origin and receivers as well as obtain information on why the data was stored. This information shall be provided in writing. The information request is to be sent in writing, including a copy of your ID, to Lapp Muller SAS ZA du grand pont F-83310 Grimaud
The customer shall be aware that current technologies still cannot ensure complete and total data protection when transferring data over the internet. The customer shall therefore bear responsibility for the security of the data it transfers over the internet.
