Our range of services and the structure of our company are presented on our website. You also have the possibility of getting in touch with us using our contact form.
Protecting your privacy is very important to us. All personal data is collected and used by us solely as permitted under statutory regulations.

This Privacy Policy notice is to inform you how we use your personal data and what we do to protect it.


1. Controller, Scope of Application

The controller is Hirschmann Laborgeräte GmbH & Co. KG (also referred to below as “Hirschmann Laborgeräte”). Further details about Hirschmann Laborgeräte are provided in the Imprint [LINK]. If you have any queries about data protection or any suggestions to make, you are welcome to contact us by email at: info@hirschmannlab.de.
Our Privacy Policy applies to your personal data that is collected and used when you visit and use Hirschmann Laborgeräte’s website.

2. Collection of Personal Data

You can view our website without giving us any of your personal data. When you access our homepage, the technical installations automatically generate communication data (e.g. your Internet Protocol or “IP” address) and usage data (e.g. the content your retrieve) to enable your actual perception of the respective content. This data that is automatically generated is stored and used by us without relating it to any individual person (e.g. by rendering the IP address anonymous), so that we will have technical or statistical information available for remedying errors or improving the website, or for doing research and analysis.
We receive data when you get in touch with us, e.g. via the contact form. On the contact form, the only spaces that have to be filled in are the ones marked.

3. Use of Personal Data

We use the data you enter on the contact form for processing your message.
We do not disclose personal data to any third parties, unless you have consented to disclosure beforehand or disclosure is permitted by law. In this context, we reserve the right to disclose data if it is necessary to do so in order to safeguard legitimate interests, and if no grounds exist for assuming that the respective party has an overriding protectable interest in excluding disclosure.
Users may expressly subscribe to newsletters from Hirschmann Laborgeräte. They may also object at any time to being sent further email advertising or newsletters, and withdraw consent with future effect. The easiest way to do this is to use the link or button provided for the purpose in the relevant email and then adjust the settings accordingly.
Under a special assignment, we may disclose data to contractors who provide technical services under our supervision (e.g. hosting, maintenance).

4. Disclosure, Information, Erasure, Blocking

At your specific request, we will immediately tell you free of charge which data of yours we have stored, if you so wish in writing or electronically. Before providing you with this information, we may insist that you send us documents to prove your identity and the authenticity of the request.
Depending on the matter about which you contacted us, your data will immediately be erased or blocked, if it is no longer necessary to save it for processing purposes or for any other reason.

5. Protecting Your Data, Data Security

We use the standard security procedures – including encryption, passwords and physical security – in order to protect your personal data from unauthorised access and disclosure. Your attention is expressly drawn to the fact that messages sent using the contact form are not encrypted for transmission purposes. If you want to send us any data requiring an enhanced level of security, please send it to us in some other way.

Please contact us if you have any queries about the security of our website.

6. Revoking Consent

Insofar as we use your data with your consent – for instance, the data you provide voluntarily on the contact form – you may revoke your consent with future effect at any time. You can do this by sending an email to the above address.

7. Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). 
Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States.

Only in exceptional cases, the full IP address is sent to and shortened by Google servers in the USA. 
On behalf of the website provider Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website provider. 

Please note that on this website Google Analytics code was supplemented „ga('set', 'anonymizeIp', true);“ to ensure an anonymised collection of IP adresses (so-called IP-masking).

Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. 
You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser. However, please note that if you do this, you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website.
