Data Privacy Statement

The protection of your personal data is very important to SSW-Trading GmbH (SSW) and we comply with the statutory provisions set forth in the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and German Telemedia Act (TMG).

Google Analytics

Our website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. Google Analytics uses text files, so called "cookies", that are stored on your computer and enable an analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. On our website the code “gat._anonymizeIp();“ was added to Google Analytics to guarantee anonymous capture of IP addresses. Your IP address will be shortened beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or in other signatory states of the Treaty on the European Economic Area. The full IP address will be transmitted to a Google Server in the USA and shortened there only on an exceptional basis.

On behalf of SSW, 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. Google will not associate the shortened IP address transmitted under Google Analytics by your browser with other data held by Google. You may prevent the storage of cookies as a user of our website by selecting the appropriate settings on your local computer’s browser software. Please follow the instructions by your browser’s developer. However, we must advise you that in this case, you might not be able to use all functions of this website to the full extent.

When you use our SSW website our server will temporarily store data including dates, times and pages visited in so-called server log files for data protection purposes. Your IP address will be anonymized prior to storage.

Social Media Plug-Ins

Our website uses a share button that allow users to establish a connection to so-called share links on the social networks Google+, LinkedIn, Xing, Twitter and Facebook and to share information on our website on these networks. When clicking the share button, personal data will not be transmitted to the developers of the integrated social networks. Only once you decide to click a specific share link during a second step, the server of the social network will receive your request to share the page (e. g. job posting). In this case the relevant social network providers may associate your use of our website with your pseudonymized user profile, or may associate your visit directly with your member profile if you are already logged into the service or log in after clicking the share link. The social network providers are responsible for their own data processing and you can find more detailed information in each provider’s data privacy statement.

When you use our contact form, your personal information will only be used for processing your enquiry and in case we have further questions.

Please note that online data transmissions may be subject to security gaps. It is not possible to completely protect data from access by third parties. We do not allow your contact information to be used for advertising by third parties.
