Visiting our website

You can visit our website without registering or providing information about yourself.

Provision of the website and log files

Each time our website is accessed and a file is retrieved, data on this procedure is automatically collected and stored in a log file. In detail, the following data record will be stored for each retrieval:

  • Date and time of access
  • IP address of the inquiring computer
    IP addresses are not fully recorded, but truncated prior to storage and can therefore not be traced back to a specific computer.
  • Host name of the accessing computer
  • Website from which the website is accessed (referrer)
  • Visited pages on our website
  • Report whether the access was successful
  • Data volume transferred
  • User agent (client-side application for the use of a network service)
  • Host name accessed (unique label assigned to a computer in a network)
  • Information on the browser type and the version used
  • Operating system of the device used
  • Internet service provider of the user

Storage of such data exclusively serves for internal system-related and statistical purposes. We use this information to continuously improve and update our website and thus make it more attractive. In addition, we use this data to identify and fend off attempted attacks and to clarify suspicions of criminally relevant use. We do not merge logged data with other data sources, in particular data allowing the identification of a specific person. Temporary storage of the user’s IP address in our system is necessary in order to enable delivery of the website to your device. For this purpose, we temporarily save your IP address for the duration of the session.

The legal basis for the temporary storage and processing of the above-mentioned data is our legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6 (1) point (f) of Regulation (EU) 2016/67 (General Data Protection Regulation, GDPR) as the responsible website operator. We cannot grant you a possibility to object to this storage as the server log is essential to secure the availability of this website and in the event the website is attacked. The server log data will be deleted automatically after seven days.

Cookies

This website uses functions of the web analytics service Google Analytics. Google Analytics uses cookies, i.e. text files which are stored on your computer and enable us to analyze the use of the website. As a rule, the information about your use of this website generated by such cookies is transmitted to a server of Google in the USA and stored there.

We have enabled the IP anonymization feature on this website. Thereby, your IP address will be truncated by Google within the member states of the European Union or in other contracting parties to the Agreement of the European Economic Area prior to transmission to the USA. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a server of Google in the USA and truncated there.

Google will use this information on our behalf as the operator of this website to evaluate your use of the website, to generate reports on website activities and to provide other services connected with the use of the website and the use of the Internet.

The storage of Google Analytics cookies is based on Art. 6 (1) point f of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). As the website operator, we have a legitimate interest in analyzing user behavior in order to optimize both our web offering and our advertising.

You may prevent the storage of cookies by selecting the corresponding setting of your browser software; however, please note that you may not be able to fully use all features of this website in this case. In addition, you may prevent the collection and transmission of the data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (incl. your IP address) to Google as well as the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following link:

Videos of the external video platform YouTube are embedded on our website. By default, only deactivated images of the YouTube channel are embedded, which do not automatically connect to the servers of YouTube. Therefore, the operator does not receive data of users of our website when the pages are accessed.

You can decide for yourself whether YouTube videos should be enabled. Only when you agree to playing the videos by clicking on a video, you give your consent to transmitting the required data (including the Internet address of the current page and your IP address) to the operator.

Service provider: YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA, represented by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

When you access a page with an embedded YouTube player on our website, a connection to the servers of YouTube/Google will be established. Your IP address and the URL of the video accessed will then be transmitted to the server. If you are logged into Google, YouTube/Google can associate this information with you and process it in your personal profile. If you do not want Google to collect data about you and link it to your personal profile, you have to log out from Google before visiting our website. For further information on the collection and use of your data by YouTube please see the Privacy Policy at https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en&gl=en

The Facebook Pixel enables Facebook to define the visitors of our website as a target group for the display of advertisements (“Facebook Ads”). Accordingly, we use the Facebook Pixel (new Meta Pixel) to target the Facebook Ads we place only to Facebook users who also showed interest in our online offering or have specific characteristics (e.g. interest in certain topics or products, which become evident based on the websites visited), which we transmit to Facebook (“Custom Audiences”). By using the Facebook Pixel, we also aim to ensure that our Facebook Ads are in line with the users’ potential interests and do not have an annoying effect. Moreover, the Facebook Pixel allows us to track the effectiveness of the Facebook advertisements for statistical and market research purposes since we can see if users were forwarded to our website after clicking on a Facebook advertisement (“conversion tracking”).

This website uses the “LinkedIn Insight Tag” of LinkedIn. The data collected is anonymous for AT&S and does not give any indication of the user’s identity. Using data from the LinkedIn Insight Tag allows us to place personalized ads anonymously. In addition, we receive reports on the website target group and the ad performance. With the LinkedIn Insight Tag, LinkedIn can collect data about visits of members on the AT&S website, including the URL, referrer, IP address, device and browser properties (User Agent) and timestamp. LinkedIn uses anonymous data in order to improve the relevance of advertisements and to reach members across devices. The IP addresses are truncated or hashed (when they are used to reach members across devices), and the direct identifiers of members are removed within seven days to pseudonymize the data. The remaining pseudonymized data will then be deleted within 180 days. The legal basis for the use of the LinkedIn Insight Tags is a legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6 (1) point f of the GDPR. AT&S has concluded an agreement with LinkedIn in this context, which you can find at https://legal.linkedin.com/pages-joint-controller-addendum. In principle, you can claim your rights vis-à-vis AT&S and vis-à-vis the operator of the social media portals.

LinkedIn members can control the use of their personal data for advertising purposes in their account settings.

Our website uses functions of several social plugins (“buttons”) of social media such as Facebook and LinkedIn. Social media (e.g. Facebook, YouTube or LinkedIn) allow users of these social media platforms to create links on their social media profiles in order to save them or share them with their social media contacts.

When you visit our website, the buttons to such social media are disabled by default. Without your intervention, no data will be sent to any social networks. Before you can use these buttons, you have to enable them by clicking on them. They will then stay enabled until you disable them again.

After enabling the buttons, a direct connection to the server of the respective social network will be established. The content of the button will then be transmitted directly from the social network to your browser and embedded in the website by the browser. After enabling a button, the social network can retrieve data, regardless of whether or not you interact with the button.

When you are logged into a social network, the network can associate your website visit with your user account.

If you are a user of a social network and do not want data from your visit to our website to be combined with your user data, you have to log out from the relevant social network before enabling the buttons.

We have no influence on the scope of data which social networks collect through their buttons. The data use guidelines of the social networks provide information about the purpose and extent of the data collected by them, how such data is used, your rights, and the settings you can use to protect your privacy. For further information regarding the scope and purpose of such collection and processing of your data, please note the privacy statements of the providers, whose services and/or content we hold responsible for the protection of your data in this context.

Processing of personal data provided by you

Personal data such as your name, address, telephone number or e-mail address will not be collected unless you provide this information voluntarily.

Please note that data transfer on the Internet (e.g. when using web forms or in the communication via e-mail) may not be fully secure. Complete protection of data from access by third parties is not possible.

Inquiries

If you have provided your personal data to us, we will use it only for the purpose of technical administration of our websites and to fulfil your requests and requirements or to respond to your inquiry.

If you send us an inquiry using our contact form, we may store the information you provide in the form, including your contact details, for the purpose of processing the inquiry and in case of follow-up questions. The legal basis is Art. 6 (1) point (b) GDPR (taking steps prior to entering into a contract and performance of a contract).

We do not forward, sell or otherwise transmit your personal data to third parties unless

  • this is necessary for the purpose of executing a contract. It may, for example, be necessary that we pass on your address and order data to our suppliers when you order products;
  • this is required for invoicing purposes;
  • you have given your express consent to the disclosure of your data.

The legal basis is Art. 6 (1) point (b) GDPR (performance of a contract) or Art. 6 (1) point (a) GDPR (consent).

Other advertising and customer care

Without your consent, we use personal data only to the extent legally permitted, i.e. for customer relations management and for sending advertising material per post. We do not use your e-mail address, fax and telephone number for advertising without your express consent. The legal basis is Art. 6 (1) point (f) GDPR (pursuit of legitimate interests).

You may object to the processing of your data for the purpose of direct marketing at any time and will then no longer receive advertising material from us.

Storage periods

We delete your data when it is no longer necessary after processing an inquiry or termination of a contract. This does not include data which we are not permitted to delete based on legal obligations (e.g. documents which must be stored according to tax law and commercial law) and data we need to pursue legitimate interests, in particular for the assertion of claims or for direct marketing.

Your rights

You have the following rights if the relevant legal requirements are met:

  • You have the right of access to personal data concerning you (Art. 15 GDPR).
  • You have the right to demand rectification of inaccurate data (Art. 16 GDPR).
  • You have the right to demand erasure (Art. 17) or the restriction of processing (Art. 18 GDPR) of data that is no longer required. Where statutory storage obligations exist, e.g. for business correspondence under commercial law and tax law or any other legal exemption is in place, the data is not deleted, but only its use is restricted.
  • You can object at any time to the processing of your data for the purpose of direct advertising and other processing of your data on grounds relating to your particular situation (Art. 21 GDPR).
  • You have the right to data portability (Art. 20 GDPR), i.e. the right to receive data which you have provided to use in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format and to transmit this data to another controller without hindrance from us; and, if required, you also have the right to demand that we transmit the data directly to another controller, where technically feasible.

Right to object: In accordance with Art. 21 (2) GDPR you have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning you for purposes of direct marketing. The processing of your data will then be limited to the other purposes for which it is required and your data will no longer be processed for direct marketing. In addition, you also have the right to object to the processing of your personal data on grounds relating to your particular situation.

To claim your rights, please contact the address mentioned above.

If you consider the processing of your data to be an infringement of data protection laws, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority (Art. 77 GDPR).
