Data privacy statement

Thank you for your interest in the web pages of OSTWIND. We take data protection on the internet very seriously. Personal data is only collected on this website to the extent that is technically necessary. The protection of this data within the framework of the statutory regulations is a matter of great importance to us.

Explanations in relation to data privacy

As an individual user, you always remain anonymous when you access the web pages of OSTWIND. When the web pages are called up, we only receive usage data such as the name of your internet service provider, the website which you access us from, and which of our web pages you visit. This information is evaluated exclusively for statistical purposes. When you subscribe to a newsletter or send us personal data via a contact form, we handle this data with extreme care in accordance with the strict regulations of the German Data Protection Act. Visitors to our web pages who are under 18 years of age should only pass on personal data with the consent of their parents or guardians.

Use and passing on of personal data

All personal data which may be produced as a result of using ostwind.de is recorded by electronic means exclusively for company purposes and also processed and used – if appropriate by agents commissioned by OSTWIND – for company-related information and advertising purposes. No data is passed on to third parties without explicit consent. 

Use of cookies

Cookies are used on ostwind.de. Cookies make it easier for visitors to use websites: They save personal settings when people visit websites. They therefore allow you to visit a website without having to make the settings again each time you do so. For this purpose, during the online session text information is collected in cookies and stored on the user's hard disk. No personal data is recorded via cookies. 

Links to other websites

To provide you with the best information possible, you will find links on our web pages which lead you to third-party websites. OSTWIND does not have any influence whatsoever on the content and the make-up of these websites offered by other providers. The guarantees of this data privacy statement therefore naturally do not apply there.

Incorporation of third party services and content 

Third-party content, such as videos from YouTube, map material from Google Maps and RSS feeds, are incorporated on the OSTWIND website. This works only when the providers of this content (hereafter referred to as the “third-party provider”) have access to the user’s IP address, because without it they cannot send the content to the respective user’s browser. The IP address is thus required for displaying this content. We endeavour only to use those contents where the respective provider uses the IP address exclusively to deliver contents. However, we have no influence on whether the third-party provider saves the IP address for statistical purposes.

The use of Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics uses "cookies", which are text files placed on your computer to help the website analyse how visitors use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website will generally be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. 

In case IP anonymisation is activated on this website, your IP address will be truncated within the area of Member States of the European Union or other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the whole IP address be first transferred to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. IP anonymisation is active on this website. Google will use this information on behalf of the operator of this website for the purposes of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage.

The IP address that your browser conveys within the scope of Google Analytics will not be associated with any other data held by Google. You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser; however, please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. You can also opt out of Google tracking and processing the data generated by the cookie and relating to your use of the website (including your IP address) by downloading and installing the browser plugin available via the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en

As an alternative to the browser add-on or for use within browsers on mobile devices, please click on this link in order to prevent being tracked by Google Analytics in future when using this website (the opt-out feature works only in the browser and only with this domain). This will place an opt-out cookie on your device. If you delete your cookies in this browser, you will have to click on this link again.

This website is hosted in Germany and is therefore subject to regulations and guidelines issued by the German data privacy agency, to which it fully complies. Google Analytics data may be accessed by employees of Ostwind AG in Regensburg, Germany.
