Additional information regarding Internet data recording

We collect and store data about online visitor behaviour for marketing and optimisation purposes (insofar as there is a connection to a person and only after prior consent). On our website data for marketing and optimisation purposes is collected and stored using technologies from Google Inc. (Google Analytics and Google Adwords), and also as part of newsletter campaigns. As Google Analytics was extended with the code „gat._anonymizeIp();“ on this website, an anonymous logging of IP addresses (so-called IP masking) is guaranteed. Our website also uses cookies which enable the usage of our website to be evaluated. Cookies are small text files which are stored in your Internet browser. The information which is collected from these cookies provides Balluff with information on the type of browser used, the IP address and the duration of the visit. It is not possible to identify a visitor using cookies due to the aforementioned anonymity of the data. The IP address transmitted by your browser within the framework of Google Analytics is not combined with other Google data. You can prevent the storage of cookies by adjusting your browser software setting; however, we would like to point out that not all functions of this website can be used to their full extent if cookies are disabled. You can also prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to your usage of the website (incl. your IP address) for Google, as well as the processing of this data by Google, by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at the following link https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.
