Data protection

We welcome your visit to our web site and your interest in our business and our products. The protection of your privacy during the processing of personal data is an important issue for us, as is the security of all business data; we take these issues into account in our business processes. We process personal data obtained during your visit to our web site both confidentially and always in accordance with statutory requirements. Data protection and information security form part of our corporate policy. MAPAL web pages may contain links to web sites run by other providers not covered by this data privacy statement.

Anonymous data collection
You can of course visit our web site without telling us who you are. Our web servers automatically save information of a general nature. This information includes the type of browser, the operating system used, your internet provider's domain name, the web site from which you visit us, as well as the date and the duration of your visit. These data do not provide any information on your identity. We only evaluate these data for statistical purposes and only in an anonymous form. Further personal data are only saved if you provide them, e.g. during a registration process.

Utilisation and dissemination of personal data, limitation of use
MAPAL uses your personal data for the purposes of the technical administration of the web site, for customer management and for marketing only to the extent necessary for the specific purpose. Without you consent, we will not provide your data to third parties outside the MAPAL Group.

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. We have activated the IP anonymization, so 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.
