Privacy Statement

Heidelberg USA appreciates your visit to our website and your interest in our products. At Heidelberg USA, your right to privacy and data security is our primary concern. We want you to feel comfortable visiting our site. By accessing or using the web site of Heidelberg USA, you agree to our Legal Terms as outlined below.

Please note that this privacy statement only applies to our web pages. It will cease to apply when you follow links to third party websites and pages.

Cookies
Heidelberg USA uses cookies to follow the preferences of our visitors and optimize our websites accordingly. A cookie is a small text file, which is placed with your permission on your computer’s hard drive. You can activate or deactivate the use of cookies at any time. However, we have made every possible effort to ensure that our website will work just the same, even when you do not use cookies. Not all cookies are the same. There are two kinds of cookies: temporary and log cookies. Temporary cookies are used to maintain the user’s session and to tell the server which page to call up next. Log cookies tell us which pages are being used. Cookies help us to improve our website to better meet your needs. However, a cookie holds only technical data; it does not tell us your e-mail address or who you are. Any personal data will only be passed on with your explicit consent.

Protocol of system data and storage of IP addresses
The use of our website leads to the automatic logging of technical data to guarantee operating reliability. These data cannot be traced to a certain individual. They include, for instance, the IP address of the contacting computer, date and time, the requested pages and files, browser type and version as well as the operating system. These data are made anonymous and analyzed exclusively for statistical reasons.

Personal Data
Under some circumstances, i.e. when ordering printing matters, Heidelberg USA may provide you with a form to enter personal information about yourself. It is completely optional for you to engage in these activities.

Heidelberg USA uses and stores personal data exclusively for the intended purpose within the Heidelberg Group and will not pass on or sell any personal data to third parties. Personal data will only be passed on to third parties with your explicit consent or when it is necessary to fulfill the contract (e.g. when a supplier needs your address to deliver goods). Applicable data protection regulations will be adhered to in technical and organizational terms. If you have given consent that your data may be passed on to third parties, you may revoke this consent at any time with effect for the future.

Your data will only be used for marketing purposes if you have given us your consent in advance, if this is in compliance with legal requirements and if you have not revoked your consent.

Security
Heidelberg USA recognize that your privacy and security are of the utmost importance, and we have devoted a great deal of effort to ensure that your personal information is safeguarded. In order to secure highest security standards we use technical and organizational security measures. Our security measures are continually updated as new technology becomes available.

Usage 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 analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. In case of activation of the IP anonymization, Google will truncate/anonymize the last octet of the IP address for Member States of the European Union as well as for other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases, the full IP address is sent to and shortened by Google servers in the USA. On behalf of the website provider Google will use this information for the purpose 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 to the website provider. Google will not associate your IP address 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. Furthermore you can prevent Google’s collection and use of data (cookies and IP address) by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en-GB (Google Analytics privacy statement by www.datenschutzbeauftragter-info.de).

On this website Google Analytics is employed with the software extension “gat._anonymizeIp();” that processes the IP addresses only in a truncated and anonymized form.
