Data Protection Statement
At ITK Engineering GmbH (registered office: Im Speyerer Tal 6, 76761 Ruelzheim, Germany) we take the privacy of your personal data very seriously, and we conform strictly to the rules of the German Data Protection Act. Personal data is collected on this website only to the extent necessary for technical reasons. The collected data is never sold to third parties or passed on to third parties for any other reason. The following statement provides an overview of how we ensure this protection and which types of data are collected for which purposes.
Data processing on this website
Data sent to us by your browser is collected in the unavoidable server log files. This data consists of:
- Browser type and version
- Operating system used
- Referrer URL (previously visited webpage)
- Host name (IP address) of the accessing computer
- Data from the search engine provider
- Time of the server query
As a rule, we cannot assign this data to specific persons. This data will not be combined with data from other sources, and it will be deleted after statistical evaluation.
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. (“Google”). However, we wish to point out that this website uses Google Analytics with the extension “_anonymizeIp()“, which means that IP addresses are processed only in abbreviated form in order to prevent direct association with actual persons.
Collection and Circulation of Information
By using the Google+1 button you can share information worldwide. With the Google+1 button you and other users will receive personalized content from Google and other partners. Google stores the information you provided for +1 content, as well as the information about the page you visited while clicking +1. Your +1 information can be inserted as a reference together with your profile name and photo in Google services, such as search results or in your Google profile, as well as in different places on websites and ads on the internet.
Google records information about your +1 activities to improve Google services for you and others. To be able to use the Google+1 button you need a globally visible, public Google profile, which must contain at least the chosen name for the profile. This name will be used in all Google services. In some cases the name can replace another name, which you have used while sharing the content via your Google account. The identity of your Google profile can be displayed to other users, who know your Email address or have other identifying information about you.
Use of the Collected Information
Apart from the above stated purpose your provided information will be used according to the Google data protection regulations. Google may publish combined statistics about +1 activities of users or share them with partners, such as publishers, advertisers and connected websites.
This website uses social plugins from the social network Facebook.com, which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA. The Plugins are identifiable by the Facebook logo( white “f” on a blue tile or “I Like”-Sign) or they are marked with the additional, “Facebook Social Plugin”. If you request a page from this website that contains a social plugin, your browser establishes a direct connection with the Facebook servers. The plugin’s content will be directly transmitted from Facebook to your browser, which will integrate it into the website. Therefore we have no influence on the amount of data that Facebook collects with the help of the plugin. For your information, below is our understanding of their usage:

Data is also acquired and saved when you send us e-mail messages.
