Data protection declaration
Personal data protection is important to us. We therefore conduct our web activity in compliance with the law on data protection and data security. Below, you can find out what information we regard as occasionally necessary to collect and what we do with it.
General speaking, we use your personal data to answer your questions, process your enquiries and find solutions appropriate to you.
Naturally, we respect your wishes not to have your personal data used to support our customer relations - especially for direct marketing or market research. We will not sell your personal data to any third party, nor will we market it in any other way.
Data collected automatically and not regarded as personal
When you visit our website, we sometimes automatically record information (i.e. information not given on registration) that does not apply to any particular person (e.g. the Internet browser and operating system used; the domain name of the website from which you came; the number of visits made, the average time of each visit, which pages have been viewed). GECO uses this information to evaluate the attractiveness of our website and improve its content.
The gathering of data is carried out using Google Analytics. In accordance with the stipulations of German data protection law, all IP addresses are anonymous. If you do not agree to your data being collected by Google Analytics, you can prohibit this service using a browser add-on (http://tools.google.com).
"Cookies" - data automatically stored on your computer
When you visit our website, we may store information on your computer in the form of a "cookie", which automatically recognises you when next you visit our site. "Cookies" allow us, for example, to match websites to your interests or to save your password, so that you do not have to re-enter it each time you visit. If you do not want us to recognise your computer, set your browser so that "cookies" are either deleted from your hard disk, all "cookies" are blocked or you receive a warning before any "cookies" are saved.
If you wish to look at the information we have saved about you, if you would like to make any alterations, or if you do not want to receive any further information from us, please contact us at the following e-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
