Data Protection
The Lingl website and the Lingl Company take a proactive approach to user privacy and ensure the necessary steps are taken to protect the privacy of its users throughout their visiting experience.  We use the data you entrust us with only for the purposes to which you have authorized us.  Under no circumstances we will disclose such personal information to third parties without your explicit consent.  The Lingl Company collects no personal information about you when you visit the Lingl website, unless you provide this information voluntarily, by e-mail for example.

Non-Personal Data
Non-personal information and data, such as the time of connection with our website and the browser type used, is automatically collected by the common working process of Internet services by Lingl.  We use this information to create statistics and to measure the activities on our website in order to increase the user value of our offers for you.  The IP address of the computer, from which the request has been sent, is not saved.

Personal Data
In certain cases, Lingl ask for personal information to provide a service or to establish contact with you.  In the event that such information is stored, you are informed about the intended use.  In the case of an order, we must ask for your name, your company, your address, your telephone number and your e-mail address.  Only then we will be able to process your order properly and to inform you about the status of your order.  Should you participate in a contest or other special actions, we need your name, your address and your e-mail address to notify you, if necessary.  If the data in the context of a central data processing are processed to improve our customer service, or are processed by a service provider for technical reasons, we will ensure the protection of your privacy concerns.  If you choose not to provide us with personal data, which on some pages the Lingl website asks for, your decision will have no material consequences for you. It may be, however, that you will then not be able to retrieve specific information from this website.

Use of Cookies
This website uses cookies to better the users experience while visiting the website. Cookies are small files saved temporarily to the user‘s hard drive that track, save and store information about the user‘s interactions and usage of the website.  Cookies also help us to identify especially popular areas of our website.  This allows an easier navigation of the website, providing the users with a tailored experience within this website, thus ultimately improving our offer for you.  These cookies enable the user‘s computer to be identified but provide no personal clues.  Users are advised that if they wish to deny the use and saving of cookies from this website on to their computers‘ hard drive, they simply need to select "Do not accept cookies" in the browser settings.  Please refer to your browser manufacturer‘s instructions how this works in detail.  Also, used cookies can be deleted at any time.  Please be advised that if you do not accept cookies, it may lead to some functional restrictions of our offerings.

Google Analytics
This website uses tracking software Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. ("Google").  Google Analytics uses cookies, small files which are saved to your computer, to analyse and track visitor usage of this website.  The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website (including your IP address) is transmitted to a server of Google in the USA and stored there.  Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports about the website activities for the website operators and to provide further services related to website activity and Internet usage.  Also Google will transmit this information to third parties insofar this is legally required or as far as third parties process this data on behalf of Google. Under no circumstances will Google connect your IP address with other data from Google. You can prevent the installation of cookies by adjusting your browser software accordingly. We would like to point out that if you do so, you might not be able to make full use of all functions of this website.  By browsing this website, you agree to the processing of the data collected by Google about you in the manner described above and accept these terms and conditions of use.
If you do not wish your personal data to be used for such purposes by the web analytics service of Google Inc., please use the deactivation add-on available by Google under tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.
If you also do not want that pseudonymous user profiles are created, you may contradict these pseudonymous user profiles at any time with effect for the future.  You can also make use of your general right to object to the use of your data for advertising purposes at any time with effect for the future.  Given the debate about the use of analysis tools with full IP addresses, we want to point out that this website uses Google Analytics with the extension "_anonymizeIp()", and IP addresses will therefore only be processed in a shortened form to prevent individuals from being identified.

Safety/Protection
Your data is password protected on all systems in which they are stored.  The disclosure of your information to third parties is prohibited to individuals who have access to them by strict safety requirements.

Links to Other Websites
Our websites contain links to websites of other providers. The Lingl Company is neither responsible for the contents of external Internet websites nor over the compliance of these external websites with data protection regulations.

Amendments to Our Data Protection Policy
Where appropriate, adjustments to our data protection policy are necessary due to statutory changes to data protection and the further development of our website.  The current version of our data protection policy is always published here.
