Data protection and legal advices
We take the protection of your personal data very seriously and will adhere strictly to the relevant applicable legal regulations under the German Data Protection Act, in particular, the regulations laid down in the German Data Protection Act and the German Telemedia Act. We would like to give you an overview in the following statement by outlining the method by which we guarantee the protection of your personal data and a description of what type of data is collected for what purpose.
Anonymous data or (if appropriate) personal data is collected during visits to our Internet websites. Personal data is exclusively data that you have provided to us voluntarily when filling in entry windows, electronic contact forms or by sending an email to our Company and where you have given your consent to the collection of such data. Personal data include information that will allow your identification as an individual, for example, your name, address, phone number or email address.
Anonymous data collection
The web server will collect general information whenever an Internet website is accessed, for example, the type of web browser, the operating system used, the screen name of the Internet service provider, the IP address of the computer used, the Internet website from which you have accessed our company website, the individual pages accessed on our website and the date and duration of your visit to our website. This is, however, only anonymous information that will not permit any conclusions regarding your identity as an individual. Such data will exclusively be utilized for statistical purposes in anonymized form.
Personal data will be collected when data is transmitted in a pre-defined entry window or contact form on our website, or if contact is made to our company by email. It is up to you to decide at your own discretion whether and what kind of information you transmit to us in this way. Personal data collected by us will only be used (without your prior consent) for processing an order or your requests. However, we reserve the right to pass your personal data on to enterprises in our authorized dealers' network commissioned by us, so that any specific request can be processed or answered. We will use your personal data for sending out (personalized) newsletters and for inclusion in a customer and potential customer database kept by our company, provided that you have given your consent and further provided that this is permissible under applicable legal regulations. In addition, we may also use your personal data for other promotional or marketing purposes and for market research, provided that you have given your consent and further provided that this is permissible under applicable legal regulations. Your personal data will not be sold, leased or provided to third parties other than in the manner described here.
Our website uses social plugins (“plugins”) provided by the social network facebook.com, operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Avenue, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”). The plugins are identifiable by a Facebook logo (white letter f on blue background or a thumb up icon) or the notice “Facebook Social Plugin”. For a full list of all social Plugins please seehttp://developers.facebook.com/plugins.
When you visit a page of our website that contains a social plugin, your browser establishes a direct connection to Facebook servers. Facebook directly transfers the plugin content to your browser which embeds the latter into the website, enabling Facebook to receive information about your having accessed the respective page of our website. Thus we have no influence on the data gathered by the plugin and inform you according to our state of knowledge:
The embedded plugins provide Facebook with the information that you have accessed the corresponding page of our website. If you are logged into Facebook, your visit can be assigned to your Facebook account. If you interact with the plugins, for example by clicking “Like”, or entering a comment, the corresponding information is transmitted from your browser directly to Facebook and stored by it. Even if you are not logged into Facebook, there is possibility that the plugins transmits your IP-address to Facebook.
If you are a Facebook member and do not want Facebook to connect the data concerning your visit to our website with your member data already stored by Facebook, please log off Facebook before entering our website. Further you can block Facebook social Plugins by using add-ons for your browser.
Cookies are used at several positions on our Internet websites, in order to increase the user-friendliness, effectiveness and security of our offer. Cookies are small text files that will be filed on your computer and stored by your Internet browser. We exclusively use "session cookies", which will be deleted automatically after you have finished visiting our Internet websites. Cookies will not cause damage to your computer and they will not include any viruses. You may, of course, also view our Internet websites without cookies. You can de-activate the corresponding option in the system settings of your Internet browser on your computer. If you do not accept cookies, this may result in restrictions to the functions available when visiting our company websites.
We take measures to ensure the security of your personal data. For this purpose, your personal data will be protected against loss, destruction, manipulation or unauthorized access or disclosure. If you communicate with our Company by email or by using an electronic form, data transfer will, however, not be encrypted. Confidentiality of the data transferred cannot be guaranteed in these cases because of the technical conditions prevailing on the Internet. Emails are transmitted through numerous computers; for this reason, there are many inherent possibilities of storing, analyzing or changing data.
Obtaining information; revocation
We are, of course, always prepared to inform you (upon your request) whether, and what type of personal data about you has been stored with us. Beyond that, you may also request that data about you that has been collected and used by us shall be changed or deleted at any time. In addition, you may revoke your consent regarding the storage or use of your personal data, or the transmission of promotional material in the future, by sending us a short message at any time. Furthermore, you may contact us at any time if you have any questions regarding the processing or storage of your personal data. Please contact us at the address specified below:

Data Confidentiality / Google Analytics
Further information concerning the terms and conditions of use and data privacy can be found at www.google.com/analytics/terms/us.html or at https://www.google.de/intl/en/policies/. Please note that on this website, Google Analytics code is supplemented by “gat._anonymizeIp();” to ensure an anonymized collection of IP addresses (so called IP-masking).
YouTube with expanded data protection Integration:
Our website embeds videos of the website YouTube. The website operator is Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.
We use YouTube in the expanded data protection mode. According to YouTube, this mode ensures that YouTube does not store any information about visitors to this website before they watch the video. Nevertheless, this does not necessarily mean that the sharing of data with YouTube partners can be ruled out as a result of the expanded data protection mode. For instance, regardless of whether you are watching a video, YouTube will always establish a connection with the Google DoubleClick network.
As soon as you start to play a YouTube video on this website, a connection to YouTube’s servers will be established. As a result, the YouTube server will be notified, which of our pages you have visited. If you are logged into your YouTube account while you visit our site, you enable YouTube to directly allocate your browsing patterns to your personal profile. You have the option to prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account.
Furthermore, after you have started to play a video, YouTube will be able to place various cookies on your device. With the assistance of these cookies, YouTube will be able to obtain information about our website's visitors. Among other things, this information will be used to generate video statistics with the aim of improving the user friendliness of the site and to prevent attempts to commit fraud. These cookies will stay on your device until you delete them.
Under certain circumstances, additional data processing transactions may be triggered after you have started to play a YouTube video, which are beyond our control.
The use of YouTube is based on our interest in presenting our online content in an appealing manner. Pursuant to Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. f GDPR, this is a legitimate interest. If a corresponding agreement has been requested, the processing takes place exclusively on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR; the agreement can be revoked at any time.
Collection and handling of personal data
When you visit our web pages, our web servers as standard store the IP-address assigned to you by your Internet service provider, the web page from which you visited us, the web pages which you visit on our site as well as the date and duration of the visit.
Personal data is stored only if you give us this of your own accord, e.g. as part of a registration, an enquiry, a tender or for the execution of a contract.
Use and sharing of personal data and its purpose
speedART uses your personal data, only to the extent necessary, for purposes relating to the technical administration of the web pages, for customer management, for product enquiries and for marketing.
The transfer of personal data to state bodies and authorities occurs only on the basis of obligatory national legal requirements. Our employees, agents and dealers are obliged to confidentiality by us.
We would like to use your data to be able to inform you about our products and services and possibly to survey you about these. Participation in such matters is of course voluntary. If you are not in agreement with this, you can inform us at any time, so that we can remove your data accordingly. You will find further information on the relevant website.
Cookies also help us to identify particularly popular sections of our Internet presentation. We can therefore match the content of our web pages more closely to your needs and thus improve our presentation to you.
Cookies can be used to determine whether there has already been a communication between your computer and our site. The cookie on your computer is merely identified. Personal data can be stored in cookies if you give your agreement, e.g. to simplify a protected online access so that you do not have to enter your user ID and password again.
Of course, you can also visit our website without using cookies. Most browsers accept cookies automatically. You can prevent cookies from being stored on your hard drive by activating the "Do not accept cookies" setting in your browser.
For exact details of how to do this, please refer to the instructions from the manufacturer of your browser. You can delete cookies already stored on your computer at any time. If you do not accept cookies, this can limit the functioning of our website.
