Purpose of processing personal data

Data on your user behaviour (such as search terms, pages accessed, surfing patterns) are collected for the purposes of optimising search results and user experience. These data are used to make our website more user-friendly and to continually improve your web experience. You can find information on this in the section on "Cookies and web tracking". Which data you submit to us when you visit our website depends, in particular, on which browser you use and its settings. If your settings allow it, we use cookies and similar tools to give you an optimal surfing experience on our website.

Our website also contains various contact forms that can be used to automatically navigate visitors to relevant information so as to simplify their search. If a user makes use of this, the document ID data are sent to and saved by us. Data entered into a contact form are submitted to us in an encrypted format. When the form is submitted, additional data such as IP address and the time of submission are sent to us. Using these forms is voluntary and data are only transmitted if they are used. Social security numbers are neither saved nor analysed.

For the stated purposes, AEIS can engage third parties (e.g. technical support specialists, service providers to handle queries or communications partners), who may have access to data, but only where necessary to provide the service. AEIS ensures that third parties process personal data exclusively in accordance with the requirements of the applicable data protection laws.

Cookies and web tracking

Cookies are small text files that are saved locally on your hard drive. The saved information is called up later as needed to facilitate use of our online services.

If you visit our website, cookies will be also stored to analyse your user behaviour on our website (web tracking). Data generated by cookies on your user behaviour (search engines and search terms used, your language selection, country you are in, browser and plugins used, referring page, dwell time, entry/exit pages, exit data and your IP address) are anonymous and used exclusively for statistical purposes (data traffic analysis). The data are used separately from your personal data. The two data sets are not merged so no connection can be made between the data on your user behaviour and your identity.

Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies”. These are text files that are saved on your computer and allow your use of the website to be analysed. The information generated by the cookie regarding your use of this website is usually transferred to and stored on a Google server in the US. However, if IP anonymisation has been activated on this website, Google will first abbreviate your IP address in member states of the European Union or in other signatories of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. The full IP address is only transmitted to Google’s servers in the US and abbreviated there in exceptional cases. Google uses this information by order of the provider of this website to analyse your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide other services associated with the use of the website and the Internet on behalf of the website provider. Google does not link the IP address provided by your browser in connection with Google Analytics to any other data. You may prevent cookies from being stored by adjusting the corresponding setting in your browser software; however, please note that this may prevent you from being able to fully use all functions of this website. You can also prevent Google from collecting and processing the data gener-ated by the cookie regarding your use of the website (including your IP address) by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en. You can find more information on the conditions of use and data protection at http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html and http://www.google.com/intl/de/analytics/privacyoverview.html

Vimeo

Our website uses plug-ins from the Vimeo video portal. The provider is Vimeo Inc., 555 West 18th Street, New York, New York 10011, USA. When you visit one of our pages that is equipped with a Vimeo plug-in, a connection is established to Vimeo’s servers. The Vimeo server learns which of our pages you have visited and your IP address. This happens even if you have not logged into Vimeo or do not have a Vimeo account. The information collected by Vimeo is transmitted to the Vimeo server in the US. If you are logged into your Vimeo account, you allow Vimeo to attribute your browsing behaviour directly to your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your Vimeo account. You can find further information about how user data are handled in Vimeo’s privacy policy at: https://vimeo.com/privacy

Google Maps

This website may use the Google Maps map service via an API. The provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. In order to use the functions of Google Maps, your IP address must be stored. This information is usually transmitted to and stored by a Google server in the US. The provider of this website has no influence on this transfer of data. Google Maps is used to provide an appealing representation of our online offering and to make it easier to find the locations indicated on our website. This constitutes a legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6, para. 1 (f) of the Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). You can find further information about how user data are handled in Google’s privacy policy at: https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/

c-alm Tracking Tool

This website uses a tracking tool provided by c-alm AG, Konradstrasse 32, 8005 Zürich. This makes it possible to collect anonymised data on your user behaviour for the purposes of optimising search results and user experience. Various parameters (e.g. most-used search terms, number of page views, average playtime for videos) are saved for keyword searches, content pages, videos and documents. If you want to prevent data from being saved, you can block cookies via the settings in your internet browser (see the section on "Enabling or disabling cookies")

You can either set your browser so that all cookies are blocked or so that you receive a notification as soon as a cookie is activated. Bear in mind, however, that you might not be able to use all of the services on our website if you have deactivated cookies in your browser.
