2. General and mandatory information
We would like to point out that transferring data over the Internet (e.g. when communicating by email) can be vulnerable to security gaps. It is impossible to completely protect data against unauthorised access by third parties.
Information about the data controller responsible
The data controller responsible on this website is:
Seifert Systems GmbH
Mr. Michael Seifert
Tel.: +49 (0) 2195-68994-0
The data controller is the natural or legal person, alone or together with others, who decides on the purpose and means of processing personal data (e.g. names, email addresses, etc.).
Revoking your consent to data processing
Many data processing operations can only be performed with your explicit consent. You can revoke any consent you have already provided at any time. To do so, simply send us an informal email message. The legality of the data processing we perform up to the point of you revoking your consent remains unaffected by the act of revocation.
SSL or TLS encryption
This site uses SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of sensitive content, such as the orders or enquiries you send us as site operator. You can recognise an encrypted connection when you change the address line in your browser from ‘http://’ to ‘https://’ and by the lock icon in the address bar.
Information, blocking, deletion
Within the framework of the relevant statutory provisions, you have the right to receive information free of charge at any time concerning personal data stored about your person. This includes information about its origin, to whom it was sent, the purpose of its processing, and, if you wish, the right to rectify, block or delete this data.

Objecting to promotional emails
As part of our duty to provide a legal notice on this website, we hereby prohibit using the contact data published for sending unsolicited advertisements and information material. The operators of these pages reserve the express right to take legal action in the event that unsolicited promotional information, such as spam emails, is sent out.
4. Collection of data on our website
friendly, effective and safe. Cookies are made up of small text files, which are stored on your computer and used by your browser.
Most of the cookies we use are what are referred to as ‘session cookies”. They are automatically deleted once you leave our website. Other cookies remain stored on your device until you delete them. These cookies allow us to recognise your browser the next time you visit our website.
Server log files
The provider of this website automatically collects and stores information in what are referred to as server log files that your browser sends us automatically. This information includes:
- Browser type/Browser version
- Operating system used
- Referring URL
- The host name of the computer accessing our website
- The time of the server request
- IP address
This data is not merged with other data sources.
Data processing is performed subject to Sec. 6 (1) (f) GDPR, which allows data to be processed in order to perform contractual or pre-contractual activities.
If you use our contact form to send us enquiries, we store the information you provide in this form along with the contact details you enter in it to precipitate processing your enquiry and handling any follow-up questions. We do not disclose this information without your consent.
As a result, the data entered into the contact form is processed subject to your consent alone (Sec 6 (1) (a) GDPR). You can revoke your consent at any time. To do so, simply send us an informal email message. The legality of the data processing operations we perform up to the point of you revoking your consent remains unaffected by the act of revocation.
The data you have entered in the contact form remains in our possession until you ask us to delete it, revoke your consent to its storage or the purpose for storing the data no longer applies (e.g. after your enquiry has been processed in full). Mandatory statutory provisions - especially retention periods - remain unaffected by this.
5. Analysis tools and advertising
This website uses functions of the web analytics service Google Analytics. Google Analytics is a service provided by Google Inc. 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
Google Analytics uses what are referred to as 'cookies’. These are text files, which are stored on your computer, and allow how you use our website to be analysed. The information generated by the cookie on how you use our website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there.
Google Analytics cookies are stored subject to Sec 6 (1) (f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analysing user behaviour in order to optimise both its website and its advertising.
Objecting to data collection
You can prevent Google Analytics from collecting your data by clicking on the link below. This sets an opt-out cookie, which prevents your data from being collected when you subsequently visit our website: Disabling Google Analytics.
Demographic characteristics in Google Analytics
This website uses functions of the ‘demographic characteristics’ of Google Analytics. As a result, reports may be prepared that contain statements on the age, gender and interests of visitors to the website. This data originates from interest-based advertising from Google and visitor data from third parties. This data cannot be assigned to any one specific person. You can disable this function at any time by changing the ad settings in your Google Account, or generally prohibit Google Analytics from collecting your data as outlined in the section on ‘Objecting to data collection’.
Google Analytics Remarketing
Our websites leverage the features of Google Analytics Remarketing combined with the cross-device capabilities of Google AdWords and DoubleClick. Google Analytics is a service provided by Google Inc. 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
This feature allows the Google Analytics Remarketing ad groups to be linked to the cross-device features of Google AdWords and Google DoubleClick. In this way, interest-based, personalised advertising messages, which have been customised to you based on your previous usage and surfing behaviour on one device (e.g. mobile phone), can also be displayed on another of your devices (e.g. tablet or PC).
Once you have given your consent, Google will link your web and app browsing history to your Google Account for this purpose. That way, the same personalised advertising messages can appear on any device you sign in to with your Google Account.
To support this feature, Google Analytics collects Google-authenticated IDs from users who are temporarily linked to our Google Analytics data to define and create audiences for cross-device ad promotion.
You can permanently opt out of cross-device remarketing/targeting by disabling personalised advertising in your Google Account; to do so click on the follow this link: https://www.google.com/settings/ads/onweb/.
The aggregation of the data collected in your Google Account is subject to your consent alone, which you can provide or revoke at Google (Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR). The collection of data for data collection operations that are not merged into your Google Account (e.g. because you do not have a Google Account or have objected to it being merged) take place subject to Sec. 6 (1) (f) GDPR. The legitimate interest arises from the fact that the website operator has an interest in the anonymous analysis of website visitors for advertising purposes.
Google AdWords und Google Conversion Tracking
This website uses Google AdWords. AdWords is an online advertising programme from Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (‘Google”).
We use what is referred to as conversion tracking as part of Google AdWords. When you click on an ad placed by Google, a conversion tracking cookie is set. Cookies are small text files which the web browser stores on the user's computer. These cookies lose their validity after 30 days and are not used to personally identify users. If the user visits certain pages on this website and the cookie has not yet expired, both Google and the website site operator can recognise that the user clicked on the ad and was redirected to this page.
Each Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. These cookies cannot be tracked through the advertisers' websites. The information gathered using the conversion cookie is used to generate conversion statistics for AdWords advertisers who have opted for conversion tracking. Customers are informed of the total number of users who clicked on their ad and who were redirected to a conversion tracking tag page. They do not receive any information that personally identifies users however. If you do not wish to participate in tracking, you can opt out of it by simply disabling the Google Conversion Tracking cookie under User Preferences in your browser. Doing so stops you being included in the conversion tracking statistics.
The storage of conversion cookies takes place subject to Sec. 6 (1) (f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analysing user behaviour in order to optimise both its website and its advertising.
You can set your browser to inform you that cookies are being used. You can also enable cookies in individual cases only, enable the acceptance of cookies in specific cases or generally rule out their use altogether and automatically delete them when you close your browser. If you disable cookies, it may limit your ability to use this website to its full extent.
If you would like to subscribe to the newsletter we offer on this website, we need an email address from you, and need information that confirms that you are the owner of the email address you have provided and wish to opt in to receive the newsletter. We do not collect any additional data or only on a voluntary basis. We use this data exclusively for the purpose of delivering the requested information and do not divulge it to third parties.
The data entered into the newsletter subscription form is processed subject to your consent alone (Sec 6 (1) (a) GDPR). You can revoke the consent you have given to the data, email address and use of the same being stored for sending the newsletter at any time, for example, by clicking on the ‘Unsubscribe’ link in the newsletter. The legality of the data processing operations we have already performed up to the point of you revoking your consent remains unaffected by this.
We save the data you have provided for subscribing to the newsletter until you cancel your subscription, after which we delete it. Data stored with us for other purposes (e.g. email addresses for the members area) remains unaffected by this.
