We work in close partnership with our hosting providers and make every effort to ensure that databases are protected as effectively as possible from unauthorized access, loss, misuse and fraud.
Recording of General Information
We and our webspace provider automatically collect information in log files each time a user accesses our website. This information, which is also referred to as server log files, is general in nature and cannot be traced back to you personally.
Various types of information are collected including: name of the website, data file, date, volume of data, web browser and version of web browser, operating system, the domain name of your internet service provider, the referrer URL (the site from which you have accessed our website) and the IP address.
From a technical perspective, it would not be possible in some instances to deliver and display the content of the website without this data. In this respect, it is absolutely essential that data is collected. We also use anonymous information for statistical purposes. This helps us to optimise our online offering and various technical aspects. We also reserve the right to subsequently monitor log files if we suspect that our website is being used unlawfully.
This user data is used to analyse statistical data in an anonymous form so that trends can be identified which we can use to improve our services.
Handling Personal Data
Definition: The term personal data encompasses all information that uniquely identifies a person. This refers to data that can be traced back to an individual person and includes information such as first name, surname, telephone number and email address.
This data is only collected, used and, if appropriate, passed on by the provider if this is explicitly permitted by law or if the user has consented to his data being collected, processed, used and disclosed.
The STONE COIN Enquiry Form on Our Website
Personal data is collected when you use the STONE COIN enquiry form on our website in order to receive a personal quotation to purchase STONE COIN. This includes surname, first name, gender, nationality, address, and date of birth as well as telephone number and email address as contact and communications data.
When you contact us via the contact form or by email, we store the information you have provided in order to answer your query and to enable us to answer any potential follow-up questions.
Application as an Acceptance Point on Our Website
Company and personal information are collected when you use the application form as an acceptance point on our website. This includes contact and communication information relating to the company (specifically company name, address, country where the company has its headquarters, URL) and the contact’s personal data (specifically surname, first name, gender, telephone number and email address).
Data which you provide to us on the STONE COIN enquiry form and the contact form is transmitted in an encrypted form. We establish a SSL connection each time either of these forms are used. SSL (secure socket layer) is a process which encrypts your data in such a way that it cannot be read by unauthorised parties when it is transmitted on the internet.
Cookies primarily perform two tasks. They help us to make navigating our website easier for you and they ensure that the website is displayed correctly. They are not used to infect your system with viruses or to start programmes.
Users can also access our website without cookies. You must firstly change the settings in your browser. Please refer to your browser’s help function to find out how to disable cookies. Please note that certain areas of the website may not function properly and the site may not be as convenient to use if you disable cookies. There is further information available on how to manage online advertising via cookies on the following websites: http://www.aboutads.info/choices/ (USA) and http://www.youronlinechoices.com/uk/your-ad-choices/ (Europe).
This website uses the online advertising service Google AdWords and the conversion tracking tool which is part of this service. This means that Google Adwords places a cookie on your computer when you have reached our website via a Google advertisement. These cookies cease to be valid after 30 days and are not used to identify you personally. Should the user visit certain pages of our website and should the cookie not yet have expired, we and Google can recognise that the user clicked on the advert and was redirected to this page. Each Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. This means therefore that cookies cannot be traced via the websites of AdWords customers.
The information which is obtained with the assistance of the conversion cookie serves the purpose of creating conversion statistics for Adwords customers who have selected conversion tracking. The customers are informed of the total number of users who have clicked on their advert and who were redirected to a page which has a conversion tracking tag. However, they do not receive any information which can identify users personally.
If you do not wish to take part in this tracking process, it is very easy to disable the Google conversion tracking cookie in the user settings in your internet browser. You will then not be included in the conversion tracking statistics. For further information on Google’s data protection policies, please visit http://www.google.de/policies/privacy/.
