An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it.

Cookies

Suggested text: If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

Embedded content from other websites

Suggested text: Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Who we share your data with

Suggested text: If you request a password reset, your IP address will be included in the reset email.

How long we retain your data

Suggested text: If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data

Suggested text: If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where we send your data

Suggested text: Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.

 

Basic information

This data protection declaration is intended to inform the users of this website about the type, scope and purpose of the collection and use of personal data by the website operator SMT Swiss Mains GmbH.
We take your data protection very seriously and treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with legal regulations. As new technologies and the further development of this website may result in changes to this data protection declaration, we recommend that you read our data protection declaration again at regular intervals.
 

Access data

We, the website operator or page provider, collect data about access to the website and store these as “server log files” on the website server. The following data is logged in this way:
– Visited Website
– time at the time of access
– Amount of data sent in bytes
– Source/reference from which you came to the page
– Browser used
– Operating system used
– IP address used
The server log files are stored for a limited time and then deleted. The data is stored for security reasons, e.g. to clarify cases of misuse, or for legal reasons (data retention). If data have to be deleted for reasons of evidence, they are excluded from deletion until the incident has been finally resolved.
 

SSL encryption (HTTPS protocol)

In order to protect your transmitted data in the best possible way, we use SSL encryption. You can recognize such an encrypted connection by the prefix “https://” in the address line of your browser. All data that you transmit to this website – for example for inquiries or logins – can in all likelihood not be read by third parties thanks to SSL encryption.
 

Cookies

This website uses cookies for pseudonymised range measurement, which are transmitted to the user’s browser either from our server or the server of third parties. Cookies are small files that are stored on your end device. Your browser accesses these files. The use of cookies increases the user-friendliness and security of this website.
You have the option of preventing cookies from being stored on your device by making the appropriate settings in your browser. There is no guarantee that you will be able to access all functions of this website without restrictions if your browser does not allow cookies.
 

Collection and processing of personal data

We only collect, use and pass on your personal data if this is permitted by law or if you consent to the collection of data. Personal information is any information that is used to identify you and which can be traced back to you, such as your name, e-mail address and telephone number.
You can also visit this website without providing any personal information. However, in order to improve our online offer, we store your access data to this website (without personal reference). This access data includes, for example, the file you requested or the name of your Internet provider. By anonymizing the data, it is not possible to draw conclusions about your person.
 

Handling of contact data

If you contact us as a website operator through the contact options offered, your details will be stored so that they can be used to process and respond to your enquiry. We will not pass this data on to third parties.
 

Rights of the user

As a user, you have the right to request free information on what personal data has been stored about you. You also have the right to have incorrect data corrected and to have your personal data processed or deleted. If applicable, you may also assert your right to data portability. If you believe that your data has been processed unlawfully, you can lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority.
 

Deletion of data

Unless your request conflicts with a legal obligation to store data (e.g. data retention), you have a right to have your data deleted. Data stored by us will be deleted if it is no longer required for its intended use and there are no legal retention periods. If deletion is not possible because the data is required for legal purposes, data processing will be restricted. In this case, the data will be blocked and not processed for other purposes.
 

Right of objection

Users of this website may exercise their right of objection and object to the processing of their personal data at any time.
If you wish to have your personal data stored corrected, blocked or deleted, or if you have any questions regarding the collection, processing or use of your personal data, or if you wish to withdraw your consent, please contact us at the following e-mail address: privacy@swissmains.com
