Privacy Policy for the Use of Google Analytics as a Web Analytics Tool

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Group (for users within the EU: Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House Barrow St, Dublin 4, Ireland; outside the EU: Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA). Google Analytics uses cookies. The information generated by the cookies about your use of this website is transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. Due to the IP anonymization activated on our website, your IP address will be shortened beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area in order to ensure anonymized recording of IP addresses (so-called IP masking).

In exceptional cases, the full IP address is transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with any other data held by Google.

For more information, see Google's statement on data use on websites using Google services at https://policies.google.com/technologies/partner-sites?hl=en, on "advertising" by Google at https://policies.google.com/technologies/ads?hl=en, and information and options for disabling personalized advertising at https://adssettings.google.de/authenticated.

Browser Opt Out

You can prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) to Google and the processing of this data by Google by adjusting your browser settings to save cookies accordingly or by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.

Use of Google Adwords and conversion tracking

We use the online advertising program "Google AdWords" on our website and in this context conversion tracking (visit action evaluation). Google conversion tracking is an analysis service provided by Google (for users within the EU: Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House Barrow St, Dublin 4, Ireland; otherwise: Google LLC 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA). Please note that Google may use personal data that you have provided, e.g. if you are logged into your Google account, have activated your location (GPS) and allow Google to access it, or are using an Android device. Google does not share this data with us. When you click on an ad placed by Google, a cookie for conversion tracking is placed on your computer. These cookies have a limited validity, do not contain any personal data and are therefore not used for personal identification. If you visit certain pages of our website and the cookie has not yet expired, Google and we can recognize that you clicked on the ad and were redirected to this page. Because each Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie, there is no way that cookies can be tracked across AdWords customers' websites.

The information obtained with the help of the conversion cookie is used for the purpose of creating conversion statistics. Here, we learn the total number of users who clicked on one of our ads and were redirected to a page tagged with a conversion tracking tag. In this context, we neither receive nor process information with which users can be personally identified. The legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 (1) f) GDPR  from the legitimate interest in targeted advertising and the analysis of the effect and efficiency of this advertising, whereby the weighing of interests did not result in any impairment of the rights and freedoms of the user.

Your rights: You have the right to object at any time to this processing of personal data concerning you based on Art. 6 (1) f) GDPR. To do so, you can prevent the storage of cookies by selecting the appropriate technical settings on your browser. However, we would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all functions of this website to their full extent. You will then not be included in the conversion tracking statistics. In addition, you can deactivate personalized advertising for you in Google's advertising settings. You can find instructions on how to do this at https://support.google.com/ads/answer/2662922?hl=en. Further information as well as Google's privacy policy can be found at: https://policies.google.com/privacy?gl=de&hl=en and at https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=en.

Newsletter

If you would like to receive the newsletter offered on the website, we require an e-mail address from you as well as information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the specified e-mail address and agree to receive the newsletter.

We send newsletters, e-mails and other electronic notifications with promotional information only if you have expressly consented to this in accordance with Art. 6 Para.1 lit.a GDPR or if a legal permission exists.

We use the so-called double opt-in procedure to ensure that the newsletter is sent with your consent. In the course of this, the potential recipient allows himself to be included in a distribution list. Subsequently, the user is given the opportunity to confirm the registration in a legally secure manner by means of a confirmation e-mail. Only if the confirmation is received, the address will be actively included in the distribution list. We use this data exclusively for sending the requested information and offers.

For the realization of our newsletter dispatch we use the software solution "MAILINGWORK" of Mailingwork GmbH, Birkenweg 7, 09569 Oederan.

Your personal data is stored on our behalf on the servers of Mailingwork GmbH in Germany and used by Mailingwork for the dispatch of our newsletters and their evaluation on our behalf. Beyond that, your data will not be used by Mailingwork GmbH; neither will you be contacted by Mailingwork itself, nor will your data be passed on to third parties by Mailingwork.

We have an order processing agreement with Mailingwork GmbH, in which our shipping service provider guarantees comprehensive protection of your personal data against unauthorized access and GDPR-compliant data processing in compliance with the protection and rights of the persons concerned. In addition, Mailingwork has been certified as a reputable email marketing service provider by the Certified Senders Alliance.

You can revoke your consent to the storage of data, the e-mail address and its use for sending the newsletter at any time, for example by clicking on the "Unsubscribe" link in the newsletter. You can also cancel the newsletter by sending an e-mail to marketing(at)visus.com.

The data protection measures are always subject to technical updates, for this reason we ask you to inform yourself about our data protection measures at regular intervals by consulting our privacy policy.

Web font from fast.fonts.net or fonts.com

This site uses so-called web fonts provided by Monotype GmbH (fonts.com or fast.fonts.net) for the uniform display of fonts. When you call up a page, your browser loads the required web fonts into its browser cache in order to display texts and fonts correctly.

For this purpose, the browser you are using must connect to the servers of fonts.com. This enables fonts.com to know that our website has been accessed via your IP address. The use of Fonts.com Web Fonts is in the interest of a uniform and appealing presentation of our online offers. This represents a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR.

If your browser does not support web fonts, a standard font will be used by your computer. For more information on these web fonts, please see https://www.fonts.com/info/legal and the privacy policy of Fonts.com: https://www.fonts.com/info/legal/privacy/ and the privacy policy of https://www.monotype.com/legal/privacy-policy/.

Integration of YouTube videos

We use the plugin of the service YouTube, which belongs to Google (for users within the EU: Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House Barrow St, Dublin 4, Ireland; otherwise: Google LLC 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA). Google has self-certified under the EU-US Privacy Shield Agreement. This means that Google agrees to maintain a level of data protection that is comparable to that in the European Union. You can read about this here: https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active.

The plugin is recognizable on our site by the embedded video, which can be clicked on. If you click on the video on one of our pages, your browser establishes a direct connection with the servers of Youtube. The YouTube server thus receives information about which particular page of our website you have visited. If you are logged into your YouTube account or other Google account, you would enable YouTube or Google to associate your surfing behavior directly with your personal profile. Google also uses the data for personalized advertising, to customize its services and for market research. You can prevent this possibility of allocation if you log out of your account beforehand. You can also turn off personalized advertising in the settings in your Google account or on your Android device. For more information on this and to object to Google's use of data, see the privacy policy at https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en&gl=en. You can also find information on Google's data protection in Google's statement on the collection and use of data at https://safety.google/ and at https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=en.
