This data protection statement provides information on the data that is collected by Senator GmbH (hereinafter referred to as SENATOR) when you visit this website and how SENATOR uses this data. To protect your privacy, SENATOR complies with the requirements of the German Federal Data Protection Act (“Bundesdatenschutzgesetz”), Telemedia Act (“Telemediengesetz”) and the General Data Protection Regulation ("Datenschutz-Grundverordnung"). Some of the data saved to our servers is data that you give to us voluntarily when you fill out forms, while other data is collected automatically. Except for personal data you provide to us yourself, SENATOR collects no data which can be used to identify individual visitors. Nor does SENATOR use any technologies which have the purpose of identifying visitors.
In common with many other companies, SENATOR tracks general usage of our website (“performance measurement”) in order to improve the site for visitors and ensure that it better suits their needs. During your visit to our website, SENATOR collects the following information about your computer and your visit and stores this data temporarily:
Some SENATOR websites store certain information, called cookies, on visitors’ computers. Generally speaking, cookies allocate users an individual number which has no meaning outside the website in question. Cookies provide information about how, when and by how many users the pages on a website are visited. This data is held in aggregated form only; the technology collects no identifying data on individual users. Again, the purpose of this technology and the information it provides is to help us improve our website. Most internet browsers are set to accept all cookies. However, you can also set your browser to reject all cookies or to prompt you to accept each time a cookie is offered. Please note, however, that cookies are sometimes needed to use certain website functions (such as the provision of user-specific information). Once saved on your computer, cookies may be deleted at any time. For more information about cookies see https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/260971/description-of-cookies.
To analyse usage of this website, we use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses a special type of cookie. The information this cookie generates about your use of this website is normally transmitted to and stored by Google on a server in the USA. For your protection, Google Analytics is supplemented on this website by the code “gat._anonymizeIp();”, which ensures that IP addresses are collected anonymously. The IP anonymisation function on this website means that if you are located within an EU member state or other EEA Agreement signatory state, Google will truncate your IP address prior to transmission. In exceptional cases only, the full IP address will be transmitted to a Google server in the US and truncated there. Google will use this information only as instructed by us for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing additional services related to website and internet usage to the website operator. The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is § 15 para. 3 TMG and Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The IP address transmitted by your browser using Google Analytics will not be associated with any other data held by Google. However, you may refuse storage of the cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser (see above). You may also prevent the data relating to your use of the website generated by the cookie (incl. your IP address) from being collected and used by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at (https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en). This will install an opt-out cookie that will prevent your data from being collected during future visits to this website. As an alternative to the browser plugin, especially for mobile devices, you can stop the tool by clicking disable Google Analytics. This opt-out-cookie is only valid for this browser and our website. If you delete the cookies in this browser you have to set the opt-out-cookie again. The data sent by us and linked to cookies, user-identifiers or advertising-identifiers are automatically deleted after 14 months. Data whose retention period has been reached is automatically deleted once a month.
Only when specifically requested by visitors to the website, we will use the personal information we collect to respond to enquiries, send emails and inform visitors about new content or services available on our website. If you no longer wish us to communicate with you by post or email, please let us know via email or letter stating your exact name, your postal address and/or your email address.

When engaging the services of third parties, compliance with the SENATOR data protection standards is ensured by contractual agreement.
