General Data Policy

We collect and use your personal data exclusively in accordance with data protection laws. Please read below about the type, scope and purpose of the collection and use of personal data. You may access and/or store and/or print this information from our website at any time.

Collection and use of non-personal data for internal and statistical purposes

When you visit IPG Automotive GmbH’s website or download data from these webpages, we will store and process information about this in a log file. For visits to our website, we automatically collect and save server log files, which are automatically transferred to us by your browser. Depending on the type of access, these may include: browser type, operating system used, reference URL, IP address and time of the server request and, if applicable, the access status of the web server, the name of the requested file and the data volume transferred.
The data will only be stored for reasons of data security as well as to be evaluated for internal statistical purposes and will only be stored for a limited duration of three months, after which they will be automatically deleted. The process is fully anonymized. Therefore, it is not possible to draw any conclusions about your identity.

Collection and use of personal data

You may be asked for some personal information when using our services. Providing such information is voluntary. Your personal data will be stored and processed in accordance with German data protection laws. We treat all personal data as confidential at all times and only use such data for a specific purpose, i.e. if you send a request we will only use your information to respond to this request. Data obtained during the registration process will be saved on a web server, as the login data are used for logging into our start page. Log files will be stored on the FTP server.

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. In case of activation of the IP anonymization, Google will truncate/anonymize the last octet of the IP address for Member States of the European Union as well as for other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. 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. 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. Furthermore you can prevent Google’s collection and use of data (cookies and IP address) by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.

You can refuse the use of Google Analytics by clicking on the following link. An opt-out cookie will be set on the computer, which prevents the future collection of your data when visiting this website: Disable Google Analytics

Correcting, blocking and deleting data

You may have the right to demand a correction, blocking or deletion of your personal data free of charge. Your personal data will be deleted if you revoke your consent to your data being stored, if having your data is no longer necessary for the purpose for which they were stored, or if storing your data is, or becomes legally inadmissible.


Cookies

When you visit our website, we may store information in the form of a “cookie” on your computer, which will automatically be recognized next time you visit our website. We use cookies in order to constantly improve our offerings and make them more user-friendly. If you do not wish for us to recognize your computer, please set your web browser so that cookies are deleted from your hard disk, all cookies are blocked, or warnings are given before cookies are stored. Most browsers offer the option of accepting or declining all cookies, or accepting only certain types of cookies. To find out how to administer and delete cookies, please refer to your browser’s help function.
We collect these data for statistical purposes only, in order to further improve our website and to make our online services even more attractive. All collection and storage is anonymized or pseudonymized, and does not allow for conclusions about your actual person.
If you limit the use of cookies, you may not be able to use all of the functions on our website. We are not responsible for cookies from other providers, for example through linked YouTube videos.

Social media netiquette

We link our website to social media channels. Using such channels (e.g. the comment function) may require you to hold an account, for which you have sole responsibility. Please regularly inform yourself about the current terms and conditions and privacy regulation of the operator in question. Holding a social media account does not make us responsible for the data processing on such sites. This is done exclusively by the respective operator of the social media platform in question.
It is our desire to enter into a dialog with our customers and potential customers via social media platforms. In order to guarantee polite communication, we ask you to observe our netiquette rules. While we welcome comments and contributions, we ask you to remain fair and respectful. For this reason we reserve the right to remove all comments which advertise or are inappropriate, indecent or offensive. Please ensure that you do not publish any unauthorized, inadmissible or illegal contents on our pages. Our pages are public and accessible to all users. We therefore ask you not to publish any data which would allow for conclusions about your person (i.e. telephone number, bank account details, etc.) on our pages. We value your privacy, which is why we reserve the right to delete such comments.
