Data protection
Thank you for visiting our website and for your interest in PLAMA Engineering GmbH (hereafter referred to as PLAMA).
The protection and safety of your personal data is a high priority of ours. This is why we comply strictly with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

Compiling and processing personal data
You can generally visit the PLAMA websites without revealing any personal data. We can only see the name of the Internet Service Provider that you use to visit our site and the pages that you view. This information is assessed for statistical purposes, but the individual users remain anonymous. Personal data is collected only if you provide it, e.g. when sending us an inquiry via the Contact page.
We wish to point out that transmitting data via the internet (e.g. when communicating by e-mail) can contain security breaches. It is not possible to be completely protected from access by third parties.

Use of personal data and making it available to third parties; specified purpose
All personal data revealed in the course of using the PLAMA website will be collected, processed and used – in compliance with the applicable regulations regarding the protection of personal data – only for processing and for safeguarding our commercial interests as they relate to providing advice and support to our customers / interested parties. Our employees are obligated to maintain confidentiality.

Contact form & Buying form
When you send us an inquiry via the contact form, the information that you enter in the form, including your personal data, will be used to process the inquiry and for any follow-up questions. We will not reveal this data to others without your explicit consent.
Thus, the data entered in the contact form will be processed only with your consent (art. 6 sec. 1 lit. a GDPR). You can revoke your consent at any time. An informal e-mail is sufficient. The legality of the data processing before revocation of consent remains unaffected by the revocation.
The data that you enter in the contact form remain with us until you ask us to delete it, you revoke your consent to saving the data or the reason for saving data no longer applies (e.g. when processing of your inquiry has been completed). Mandatory statutory provisions – particularly retention periods – remain unaffected.

Note on Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called cookies, which are text files placed on the customer’s computer, to help the website analyse how you use the site. The information that the cookie generates about your use of this website (including your IP-address) is transferred to and stored on a server operated by Google in the USA. Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to produce reports on website activities for their operators, and to provide other services related to the use of the website and of the internet. Google may also transmit this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf. Google will not use your IP address in connection with other Google data. You can avoid the installation of cookies by adjusting the respective settings in your browser software; we would like to make you aware of the fact that in this case it is possible that you will not be able to use all the features of this website.

Use of Google Maps

Diese Webseite verwendet Google Maps API, um geographische Informationen visuell darzustellen. Bei der Nutzung von Google Maps werden von Google auch Daten über die Nutzung der Kartenfunktionen durch Besucher erhoben, verarbeitet und genutzt. Nähere Informationen über die Datenverarbeitung durch Google können Sie den Google-Datenschutzhinweisen entnehmen.

Use of script libraries (Google Webfonts)

To properly display our contents in different browsers, we use script libraries and font libraries on this website, e.g. Google Webfonts (https://www.google.com/webfonts/). Google Webfonts are transmitted to the cache of your browser to avoid repeated loading. If the browser does not support Google Webfonts or prevents access, contents are displayed in a standard font.

Calling up script or font libraries automatically creates a connection to the library’s operator. In such cases it is theoretically possible – but currently uncertain whether this occurs or if so to what purpose – that the operators of the respective libraries may compile data.

The data protection guideline of the Google library operator can be found here: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/
