2. What personal data do we store?

In principle, you can visit our web pages without revealing your identity. However, for some offers, we do need some personal details from you. This applies, for example, to situations like sending information materials or ordered goods, or for responding to individual queries. In all of these cases, we only store the data that you enter yourself.

3. Purpose of personal data processing

In principle, we only use your personal data for the purpose stated when collecting the data, e.g. to provide information you have requested or to process orders. We will only use your personal data for the purposes of marketing and market research or opinion polls if you have given your explicit consent. If there is any question at all of data being used for these purposes, you can choose or refuse to give your consent to such use directly when entering the data.

4. Transmission of personal data

Your personal data will not be passed on to third parties. External service providers who process data on our behalf are contractually obligated to comply with all applicable data protection regulations and are not deemed third parties in terms of the data protection law.

5. Cookies

We use so-called cookies to better adapt our website to your needs and to enable us to collect statistical data on the use of our website. “Cookies” are small text files that can be stored by our website locally in your web browser memory on the computer used by you. In particular, cookies allow the web browser to be recognised. The cookies on our website do not collect any personal data about you or your use. You can delete saved cookies yourself at any time via the appropriate menu option in your web browser or by deleting the cookies from your hard drive. You can find details of this in the help menu of your web browser.

6. What can you do to restrict the processing of your data?

If you have previously given consent for your personal data to be processed, you can revoke it at any time. You can also refuse consent for your data to be used for marketing or market research in general. To do so, it is sufficient to send a message to our address as stated below.

7. Security

Artesan stores personal data in secure operating environments, where it is not publicly accessible. However, we would like to advise that data transmission between your computer and our web server is usually unencrypted.

8. Information and amendment

At your request, we will give you information at any time on whether and, if applicable, what personal data about you is stored with us. If you would like information, please contact our data protection officer. You can find the address in the “Contact” section.

It may be necessary for us to change our security and data protection practices, for example, due to technical developments. In such cases, we will also amend this data protection notice. Please always take note of the latest version.

10. Use analysing of our website

To enable us to optimise our website, we analyse how visitors use our web pages. We do so by using Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. When you visit our website, a program (JavaScript) is downloaded from a Google server to your computer and run. A cookie containing information on your use of our website is then saved on your computer. This includes the name of the website visited, the time when it was visited and a unique identification code generated specially for your browser, among other things. This information is transmitted to Google and stored in its computer systems, which are partly located outside Europe, specifically in the USA. Technical information about your computer, e.g. the type of web browser used, the operating system and the resolution of the display is also transmitted.

Google processes this information on our behalf to analyse your use of our website, to compile statistics on all visitors’ usage patterns - including broad information on location - and to render other services associated with website use and Internet use for us. You remain anonymous throughout the entire analysis of usage patterns.

This website’s Google tracking codes use the “anonymizeIp()” function; therefore, only abbreviated IP addresses are used, so that individuals cannot be identified directly. Your full IP address will only be used for transmitting the program components and data in your web browser required for usage analysis and will not otherwise be stored or combined with other data by Google. Your IP address will be included in the analysis of usage patterns in abbreviated form at most. It is not possible to assign usage data to you personally using the abbreviated IP address. This also applies if Google uses your usage data itself. This website also uses Google Analytics reports on demographic features, in which data from interest-related advertising by Google and visitor data from third-party providers (e.g. age, gender and interests) are used. This data cannot be traced to a specific person and can be deactivated at any time via the display preferences.

To fully exclude your visits to our website from our usage analysis, you can visit this Google page to download an Add-On for the most common browser types and integrate it into your browser. Consequently, the program component required to collect your personal data (JavaScript) will not run and no cookies will be saved on your browser for usage analysis. If you block cookies in general via the appropriate settings in your browser, the analysis of your usage patterns by Google Analytics will also be disabled.

Set opt-out cookie.
