DATA PROTECTION

At Abele Ingenieure GmbH we take the protection of your personal data very seriously. Therefore, we consider it a matter of course to adhere to legal data protection provisions.

You can visit our website without providing any personal information. The data which is generated when you access our websites is explicitly not considered personal data. When you access our website, we receive user data which is only processed in anonymised form and used for statistical purposes. This information is temporarily stored in a so-called log file. The following information is captured without any action on your part and stored until it is deleted automatically:

  • IP address of the accessing computer
  • date and time of access
  • name and URL of the accessed file
  • website from which the access has been made
  • browser used and, where applicable, operating system of your computer as well as the name of your access provider

Our website is protected by technical and organisational security measures to avoid the loss, manipulation, destruction or access to data by unauthorised persons. Although we use the SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) industrial standard to encrypt our website, complete protection against every incident is impossible. Our security measures are being constantly improved in line with the latest technological developments.

Cookies

Our websites use cookies. Cookies are small text files enabling the storage of user-related information on the user’s end device during the user’s access to our website. Cookies do not harm your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies allow for the frequency of use and, in particular, the number of users to be identified as well as user behaviour and website usage to be analysed. We also use cookies to make our online offering more user-friendly, effective and secure.

Temporary cookies are automatically deleted after the browser is closed. Permanent cookies remain stored until the end of a browser session and can be called up again when you next visit our website. You can change your browser’s settings so that it will refuse to accept cookies.

Visitors to our website can influence the use of cookies. Most browsers offer an option through which the storage of cookies can be restricted or completely prevented. Please note that the functions of our website and its user-friendliness in particular is restricted when cookies are disabled.

Google Analytics

Our website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service by Google, Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called cookies, which are text files saved on your computer to help the website analyse how users make use of the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website will typically be transmitted to, and stored by, a Google server in the USA. We have implemented the IP anonymisation function “_anonymizelp()” on this website. It deletes the final eight digits of your IP address automatically even before being stored in Europe, so that you cannot be identified by Google. Thanks to this anonymisation, in agreement with German data protection authorities, only a very rough localisation is possible.

Google will use this information on our behalf as the website operator to analyse your use of our website, to compile reports about website activities and to provide us with further website- and internet-related services. Google will not associate your anonymised IP address transmitted in the context of Google Analytics with any other data held by Google.

You can prevent the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate setting in your browser. Furthermore, you can prevent the capture of the data generated through the cookie (including your IP address) by Google as well as the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing a browser plugin via the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en

Social media

For our company profiles on XING, LinkedIn und Facebook, we have integrated a data protection-friendly redirection function enabling access to our website without the integration of external social media plugins.
