Data Policy

October 2016

We are pleased to welcome you as a visitor to our home page and wish to thank you for your interest in our company. We understand our relations with Customers and Prospective Buyers to be a matter of trust. Since you place your confidence in us, which is of very great importance and significance to us, we feel committed to ensure that your data will be handled carefully and protected from misuse.

For you to feel safe and secure when visiting our website, we take the protection and confidential treatment of your personal data very seriously. For this reason, we act in accordance with the relevant legal requirements on the protection of personal data and regarding data security.

The purpose of this Privacy Policy is to inform you of what kind of data is saved under which circumstances and how we use it - as prescribed by current German case law as a matter of cause. The data privacy rules of Vistec Electron Beam GmbH meet the European Data Security Standards and are specifically based on the latest binding Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) revision. For Internet use, we focus on the Telemedia Act (TMG) of the Federal Republic of Germany.

Collection & Processing of Personal Data

You may visit our websites at any time without telling us who you are. Our web servers in Germany will automatically save information of a generic nature. This includes the type of web browser, the abbreviated IP address, the selected operating system, the domain name of your Internet service provider, the source website you use for visiting us, the websites you are visiting on our end and the date and duration of a visit. All of this is information that draws no conclusions in respect of your person. We evaluate this data for statistical purposes and in an anonymous form only.

For our websites, we use a PIWIK open-source analytical tool (www.piwik.org) in order to generate statistical analyses regarding website utilization. PIWIK uses cookies in the form of text files saved on your computer that enable us to analyze the use of the website. PIWIK saves collected data (including, but not limited to, IP address, exact time, site visited, selected browser) into a database. A PIWIK-generated evaluation file is completely anonymized and cannot be used to identify individual persons. Once saved, the data is not linked up with other data sources or forwarded to third parties. Data of this kind is treated in strictest confidence. It is not forwarded to destinations outside of our company or disclosed to third parties, except as required under binding law and, notably, by the competent prosecuting authority.

Personal data represents inventory data such as your name, address, account number, identity card number or telephone number, your e-mail address or IP number. Your personal data is collected, processed or used, incidentally, only if you have willingly placed it at our disposal, if this is permitted by law or you have given your consent. Routinely, this happens when you enter into a business relationship with us or when you direct a query to us.

Utilization & Forwarding of Data Surveys

The use of our web site is normally possible without disclosure of personal data. The user’s personal data are processed by us only inasmuch as this is necessary for the performance of the offered services. There is no automatic collection of personal data. The user must enter personal data himself. Personal data which has been made available to us is exclusively saved, processed and used for purposes previously notified to or agreed with you, i.e., typically, to fulfil a contract made with you or to answer your inquiry.

Should you wish to take up our services, typically, only such data will be recorded that we require for rendering a requested service. Further details which you may be requested to add from case to case, will be regarded as provided at your own free will. Personal data will be processed for no other purpose than to fulfil a requested service and to safeguard our own business interests.

Is Personal Data Forwarded to Third Parties?

Your data will not be processed or used for purposes of consultancy, advertising or market research, unless you have expressed your explicit consent. Your data will not be sold, leased out or otherwise made available to third parties. Furthermore, we shall refrain from transmitting personal data to official institutions or governmental authorities, except as stipulated otherwise under mandatory national legal requirements.
