General guidelines and mandatory information

This privacy policy gives you an overview of the type of data collected by Safecon Systems and what happens to your personal data when you visit our website. We shall treat your personal data confidentially and in compliance with the legal data protection regulations as well as this privacy policy. When you visit our website, your browsing behaviour can be statistically evaluated. This is mainly done using cookies, analysis tools and tools of third-party providers. In principle, your browsing behaviour is analysed anonymously; this browsing behaviour cannot be traced back to you. You can object to this analysis or prevent it by avoiding the use of particular tools. Detailed information about this can be found in the following guidelines to our privacy policy.

Information about the collection of personal data

In the following sections we shall inform you about the collection and further processing of personal data when you visit our website. Personal data refers to all data which relates to you personally or with which you can be identified personally, e.g. name, address, e-mail address, or user behaviour.

When you contact us by e-mail or via a contact form, we shall store the personal data you submit to us (your e-mail address, your name and your telephone number, if necessary) for purposes of responding to your questions. We shall delete the data connected with this event as soon as its storage is no longer required, or we shall restrict the processing of this data if there are any legal obligations necessitating its storage.

If we engage contracted service providers for individual functions of our service provision, or if we want to use your data for advertising purposes, we shall hereafter inform you in detail about the respective procedures. At the same time, we shall also tell you the fixed criteria for the storage duration.

Insofar as your inquiry necessitates the transmission of personal data to particular recipients, the data will also be shared with third parties. This will always take place within the framework of legal regulations.

This website uses SSL and/or TLS encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential contents, e.g. submitted contents of a form. If the encryption is activated, the data transmitted to us cannot be read by third parties. You can recognise an encrypted connection by the fact that the address bar of your browser changes from “http://” to “https://” and by the lock symbol in the browser bar.

The use of the contact details published in connection with the obligatory legal notice for sending not explicitly solicited advertising and information material is hereby excluded. The operators of the websites reserve the right to take express legal steps in the event of unsolicited circulation of advertising information, for example through spam e-mails.

Your Rights

You can assert the following rights against us regarding your personal data:

You also have the right to complain to a data protection supervisory authority about the processing of your personal data by us.

If you are simply visiting our website for information purposes, and not to register or send us any information at all, we shall still collect the following personal data which will be transmitted to our server by your browser.

The legal basis for the processing of your data is Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR, which allows the processing of technically requisite data that ensures a stable and secure operation of the website.

In addition to the data mentioned earlier, cookies are stored on your computer when you visit our website. Cookies are small text files which are stored on your hard disk and associated with the browser you use; through these cookies, information is transmitted to the institution which has placed the cookie on your computer (here, our organisation). Cookies cannot run any programmes on or transmit viruses to your computer. They serve to make our web content more user-friendly and more effective as a whole.


Registration on this website

You can register on our website to be able to use other functions on the website. We use the data submitted only for purposes of using the respective product or service for which you have registered. The mandatory information required during registration must be submitted in full. Otherwise, we will reject the registration.

We shall use the e-mail address submitted during registration to inform you about important changes, for example to the scope of the offer, or technically significant changes.

The data submitted during registration is processed on the basis of either a contract (Article 6(1)(b) of the GDPR or your consent (Article 6(1)(a) of the GDPR). You can revoke your consent at any time. You can do this by sending us an informal message by e-mail. The legality of the data processing already carried out shall remain unaffected by the revocation.

Data collected during the registration is stored by us for as long as you are a registered member on our website; thereafter it will be deleted. Legal retention periods shall remain unaffected.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where your data is sent

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
