When we process the personal data that is collected during your visits to our website, we always observe the rules laid down in the applicable data protection laws. Your data will not be disclosed publicly by us, nor transferred to any third parties without your consent.
In the following sections, we explain what types of data we record when you visit our website, and precisely how they are used:

Content

1. Recording and processing of data in connection with access over the Internet
2. Orders
3. Use and transfer of personal data
4. Consent to use data in other contexts
• Newsletters and press distribution
• Visitors’ books and forums
5. Cookies
6. Web analysis
7. Social plugins
8. Security
9. Links to websites operated by other providers
10. Right to information and contact data
11. Acceptance, validity and modification of data protection conditions


1. Recording and processing of data in connection with access over the Internet

When you visit our website, our Web server makes a temporary record of each access and stores it in a log file. The following data are recorded, and stored until an automatic deletion date:

• IP address of the requesting processor
• Date and time of access
• Name and URL of the downloaded file
• Volume of data transmitted
• Indication whether download was successful
• Data identifying the browser software and operating system
• Website from which our site was accessed
• Name of your Internet service provider

The purpose of recording these data is to allow use of the website (connection setup), for system security, for technical administration of the network infrastructure and in order to optimize our Internet service. The IP address is only evaluated in the event of fraudulent access to the network infrastructure of eINTERASIA.
We do not compile personal profiles of users. The German Telemedia Act (TMG) states that user profiles are permissible under the condition that pseudonyms are used, and on condition that the user does not withhold consent. If we intend to make use of this option anywhere on our Web page, a notice informing you of your right to withdraw consent will be posted on the corresponding page.
Apart from the special cases cited above, we do not process personal data without first obtaining your explicit consent to do so.


2. Orders

If you order information material or other goods via our website, we will use the address data provided only for the purpose of processing your order.


3. Use and transfer of personal data

All use of your personal data is confined to the purposes stated above, and is only undertaken to the extent necessary for these purposes.
Personal data will not be transferred to government bodies or public authorities except in order to comply with mandatory national legislation or if the transfer of such data should be necessary in order to take legal action in cases of fraudulent access to our network infrastructure. Personal data will not be transferred to third parties for any other purpose.


4. Consent to use data in other contexts

The use of certain services on our website, such as newsletters or discussion forums, may require prior registration and involves a more substantial processing of personal data, such as longer-term storage of e-mail addresses, user IDs and passwords. We use such data only insofar as it has been sent to us by you in person and you have given us your express prior consent for this use. For example, we request your consent separately in the following cases:

Newsletters and press distribution
In order to register for a newsletter service provided by eINTERASIA, we need at least your e-mail address so that we know where to send the newsletter. All other information you supply is on a voluntary basis, and will be used in order to contact you directly or clear up questions concerning your e-mail address. If you request delivery by post, we need your postal address. If you ask to be included on a press distribution list, we need to know which publication you work for, to allow us to check whether specific publications are actually receiving our press material.
As a general rule, we employ the double opt-in method when sending out newsletters. In other words, after you have registered for the service and informed us of your e-mail address, you will receive an e-mail in return from us, containing a link that you must use to confirm your registration. The newsletter will not be sent until this has been done. This procedure is used to ensure that only you yourself can register with the newsletter service under the specified e-mail address. You must confirm your registration as soon as possible after receiving our e-mail, otherwise your registration and e-mail address will be erased from our database. Until we receive your confirmation, our newsletter service will refuse to accept any other registration requests using this e-mail address.
You can cancel subscriptions to our newsletters at any time. To do so, either send us an e-mail or follow the link at the end of the newsletter.

Visitors’ books and forums
If you wish to sign up for an Internet forum run by eINTERASIA, we need at least a user ID, a password, and your e-mail address. For your own protection, the registration procedure for this type of service, like that for the newsletters, involves confirming your request using the link contained in the e-mail we send you.
You can cancel your registration for this type of service at any time, by sending us an e-mail via the Web page offering the service.
As a general rule, the content of visitors’ books and forums is not subject to any form of monitoring by eINTERASIA. Nevertheless, we reserve the right to delete posted contributions and to prohibit users from further use of the service at our own discretion, especially in cases where posted content contravenes the law or is deemed incompatible with the objectives of eINTERASIA.


5. Cookies

We don’t normally use cookies on our website, but in certain exceptional cases we may use cookies which place technical session-control data in your browser’s memory. These data are automatically erased at the latest when you close your browser.
If, exceptionally, one of our applications requires the storage of personal data in a cookie, for instance a user ID, we will point out you to it.
Of course, it is perfectly possible to consult our website without the use of cookies. Please note, however, that most browsers are programmed to accept cookies in their default configuration. You can prevent this by changing the appropriate setting in the browser options. If you set the browser to refuse all cookies, this may restrict your use of certain functions on our Web site.


6. Web analysis

Personal user profiles are not created. However, Section 15 (3) of the Telemedia Act (TMG) permits the use of user profiles under a pseudonym for the purpose of advertising, market research and the structuring of offers in line with the user’s needs provided that the user does not object to this:
We also use web analysis services on our web pages, for example from etracker or WiredMinds, which carry out the web analysis on our behalf as contract processors (see the websites of www.etracker.com and www.wiredminds.com for these providers). Their services have been checked by the supervisory authorities and/or experts and meet all requirements under German and European data protection laws. Using the technologies of these providers, data is collected and stored on our website. From this data, user profiles are produced under a pseudonym for marketing and optimization purposes, for which cookies may be used. Cookies are small text files that are stored locally in the cache memory of the site visitor’s web browser. The cookies enable the web browser to be recognized. Furthermore, your user behavior can be measured via a JavaScript code and data collected in this connection can be sent directly to the provider’s servers in Germany or the EU via an HTML connection. Without your express consent, the data collected using the tracking technologies will not be used to personally identify you and will not be combined with the personal data about the bearer of the pseudonym. No cross-website analysis will be carried out either.
If you wish to technically stop the tracking, you can deactivate JavaScript and cookies in your web browser. Consent for the collection and storage of data can also be refused with effect for the future at any time. Please follow these links to refuse the services provided by etracker or WiredMinds:

7. Social plugins

We also use social plugins in some cases on our webpages, e.g. from the Facebook, Twitter, YouTube or Google+ social networks. These are often technically operated in the USA or in other countries outside Germany and the EU and some are offered via national companies in the EU (see the websites www.facebook.com, www.twitter.com, www.youtube.com or www.google.com for the providers). The plugins are identified with the companies’ logo, comment fields or what are known as a “Like” or “+1” button.
If you open a page of our website in your web browser containing such a plugin, your web browser will create a direct connection to the servers of the respective provider in the country concerned.
By incorporating the plugins the provider is given at the least the information that you have visited a certain page on our website, and perhaps also other information that your web browser or the device you use also discloses. The content of the plugin is loaded by your web browser directly from the provider and incorporated into our website. If you are registered and have logged in with the provider concerned, your visit can also be assigned to your user account.
If you interact with a plugin, e.g. if you click on the “Like” button or enter a comment in a form field, your browser will also transmit this information directly to the provider where it will be saved and, if applicable, continue to be used and published.
Above all, marketing measures of the provider and eINTERASIA are the reason for the collection and use of the data as described and determine the extent of this. You can find details on this and on your rights and on ways in which you can prevent the collection and use of your data in order to protect your private sphere directly in the data privacy policy of the respective provider.
If you do not wish a provider to collect data on you through our website you must deactivate the plugins in your web browser. If you wish to avoid a link to any existing user account, you must log out before your visit to our website. By visiting our website, you declare your consent to the above provisions.


8. Security

eINTERASIA implements technical and organizational security measures to safeguard stored personal data against inadvertent or deliberate manipulation, loss or destruction and against access by unauthorized persons. Our security measures are continuously improved in line with technological progress.


9. Links to websites operated by other providers

Our Web pages may contain links to other providers’ Web pages. We would like to point out that this statement of data protection conditions applies exclusively to the Web pages managed by eINTERASIA. We have no way of influencing the practices of other providers with respect to data protection, nor do we carry out any checks to ensure that they conform with the relevant legislation.
