It is important to Bachmann GmbH & Co. KG [BACHMANN] that you feel safe when visiting the www.bachmann.com website. We therefore comply with the data protection requirements of the Federal Republic of Germany.
Our website www.bachmann.com can generally be used without the disclosure of personal data. If personal data is requested of you and collected, for example when completing a survey or registering on our site (for example name, postal address or e-mail address) this is always done on a voluntary basis where possible. Irrespective of further statutory obligations and/or permission norms, your personal details are only shared with third parties if required for contract implementation and/or to provide services you have requested or if required to protect justified interests of BACHMANN and there is no reason to assume that you have a legitimate interest in this data not being shared.
Please note that online data transfer is generally not secure. The possibility of transferred data falling into the hands of unauthorised parties and even being falsified cannot be ruled out. We would draw the user's attention to the fact that sending data over the Internet (for example sending an e-mail or submitting online forms) is not absolutely secure. It is not possible to guarantee that data is completely protected from third parties.
To make your visit to www.bachmann.com a smooth and pleasant experience, we use what are known as cookies; these are generally small text files which a web server – e.g. the www.bachmann.com web server – sends to the user's browser, enabling the user to be recognised (e.g. any settings made by the user are accessed again when the website is next visited so the user does not have to enter details again when switching between functions). Depending on the user's browser settings, the cookie file is saved on the user's hard disk or rejected. As a user you can usually configure your browser to always reject the acceptance of cookies or to display a warning in advance whenever a cookie is to be received. Under some circumstances, rejecting cookies will however mean that full use cannot be made of all the functions available on websites operated by www.bachmann.com.
We want to continuously improve our online presence and make it even more attractive for you. However, we can only do this if we know what content you have looked for on our website. We therefore use Google Analytics, a web analytics service from Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; "Google"), on our www.bachmann.com websites. Google Analytics uses “cookies”, text files that are stored on your computer to analyse your site usage. The information gathered by the cookie about your site usage is usually sent to a Google server in the USA, where it is stored. However, if IP anonymisation has been activated on this site, in member states of the European Union and other countries which are signatories to the EEC agreement, your IP address will first be shortened by Google. In exceptional cases, the full IP address will be sent to and shortened on a Google server in the USA. Google will use this information on behalf of the site operator to analyse your use of the site, compile reports on site activity, and provide other services relating to site and Internet usage. The IP address collected by Google Analytics will not be linked with any other data held by Google. You may disable cookies by selecting the appropriate setting in your browser. Please note, however, that this may prevent you from making full use of the functions on this website. You may also prevent the site usage data collected by cookies (including your IP address) from being stored and processed by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available through this link (http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de). You can prevent Google Analytics from capturing your data by clicking on the following link. An opt-out cookie is set which prevents your data from being captured the next time you visit this website: Deactivate Google Analytics.
Please note that the "gat._anonymizeIp();" code has been added to this Google Analytics website to ensure the anonymised capture of IP addresses (referred to as IP masking). We also use Google Analytics to evaluate data from AdWords and the double-click cookie for statistical purposes. If you do not wish this to be done, you can deactivate it via the display requirements manager (http://www.google.com/settings/ads/onweb/?hl=de).
BACHMANN refuses to accept liability for the content of other providers which can be accessed via hyperlinks. This relates to external content that we do not adopt as our own. Should you notice any violations of law on linked pages, do please inform us. We also expressly distance ourselves from any illegal or immoral web content.
We reserve the right to change this data protection declaration at any time. The current version of the data protection declaration is always available at bachmann.com.
