We want you to feel safe and comfortable at SALT Solutions AG, which is why we take the confidentiality and integrity of your personal data very serious. SALT Solutions AG processes your personal data according to the principles of the European Data Protection Basic Regulation. We will therefore process and use your information carefully and in accordance with legal provisions on data protection and will not pass it on to third parties without your consent.



We collect, process and use personal data provided by you only for the purposes listed, unless you agree upon more extensive consent.

We oblige to collect, process and use as little personal data as possible in accordance with the principle of data economy.

Accordingly, using our website is initially possible without providing personal data.

The collection of any personal data (such as contact forms etc.) takes place on voluntary basis as far as possible.

 

Collection of general information

When you access our websites (www.salt-solutions.de, www.salt-solutions.de/blog, www.salt-solutions.de/solutions, www.alexa-retail.com, www.logbase.de, www.openserv4p.de), data of  general nature is automatically collected. This data (server log files) contains the type of web browser, the operating system used, the domain name of your Internet service provider and similar information. This data does not allow any conclusions about your person and is technically necessary in order to correctly deliver the content you have requested from websites and is mandatory when using the Internet. Anonymous data of this kind is statistically evaluated by us in order to optimize our Internet presence and the technology in the background.

We reserve the right to verify this data subsequently in case of any concrete indications of illegal use of the website. This data is deleted after 6 months.

Registration on our website

When registering to apply our personalized services, specific personal data is collected, such as name, address, contact and communication data such as telephone number and e-mail address. Registered users have access to specific content and services only offered to registered users. As registered user you also have the option to change or delete all data provided during the registration at any time. Of course, we will also provide you with information about all saved personal data related to you. We will be happy to correct or delete them at your request, provided that there are no legal storage obligations to the contrary. To contact us in this context, please use the contact details given at the end of this data protection declaration. The purpose of individual personal data transferred by you when using our forms, can be found directly on the corresponding form.

To protect the security of your data during transmission, we use state-of-the-art encryption methods (e.g. SSL) via HTTPS.


Commenting function 

If users leave comments in the blog, the time of their creation and the user name previously chosen by the website visitor are stored in addition to this information. This serves our security, since we can be prosecuted for illegal contents on our web page, even if provided by users.


Newsletter & Email Marketing

When registering to receive our newsletter and/or registering in our e-mail distribution list, for example by requesting further documents on our products and services, all provided data will be used exclusively for this purpose. Subscribers or recipients can also be informed by e-mail of circumstances relevant to the service or registration (e.g. changes to the newsletter offer or technical circumstances).

For an effective registration we require a valid e-mail address. In order to verify that the registration is actually done by the owner of an e-mail address, we apply the "double-opt-in" procedure. Therefore we log the order of the newsletter, the dispatch of a confirmation mail and the receipt of the newsletter.

Further data will not be collected. The data will be used exclusively for sending the newsletter and will not be passed on to third parties.

 

Personalized Tracking

We would like to continuously improve and further develop our news for you according to your interest. That's why we apply personalized tracking in the scope of our email marketing software. We collect the following information:

  • Delivery of the e-mail
  • Opening and multiple openings of the e-mail
  • Link clicks within the email
  • Accessing special websites
  • Registration in web forms

You can withdraw your consent about us storing your personal data and their use for sending newsletters and e-mails at any time (see also Rights of persons concerned according to Art. 13/14 DS-GMO). Every newsletter and every e-mail features a corresponding link. You can also unsubscribe directly from this website at any time or let us know your preferences by using the contact options at the end of this document.

Contact Form

If you contact us by e-mail or contact form, the information you have provided will be stored for the purpose of processing your inquiry and for possible follow-up questions.

Deletion or blocking of data

We adhere to the principles of data avoidance and data economy. We therefore only store your personal data for as long as it is necessary to achieve the purposes stated here or as required by law due to given versatile storage periods. After the respective purpose has been reached or after the expiry of these periods, the corresponding data will be blocked or deleted as a matter of routine and in accordance with statutory regulations.

 

Use of Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of 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 this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, due to the activation of IP anonymization on these websites, your IP address will previously be shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activities and to provide the website operator with further services associated with website and Internet use. The IP address transmitted by your browser in the context of Google Analytics is not merged with other Google data.

Use of Google Remarketing

This website uses the remarketing function of Google Inc. to present interest-based advertisements to website visitors within the Google advertising network. A "cookie" is stored in the visitor's browser, which makes it possible to recognize the visitor when he or she visits websites that belong to Google's advertising network. These pages may contain advertisements that refer to content that the visitor has previously viewed on websites that use Google's remarketing feature.

According to its own statements, Google does not collect any personal data during this process. However, if you do not wish to use Google's remarketing function, you can always deactivate it by adjusting the appropriate settings at http://www.google.com/settings/ads. Alternatively, you can disable the use of cookies for interest-based advertising by means of the Advertising Network Initiative by following the instructions here http://www.networkadvertising.org/managing/opt_out.asp

 

Social plugins

On our website we offer the possibility of using so-called "Social-Media-Buttons". To protect your data, we rely on the "Shariff" solution when implementing. This means that these buttons are only included on the website as a graphic containing a link to the corresponding website of the button provider. By clicking on the graphic you will be forwarded to the services of the respective provider. Only then will your data be sent to the according provider. If you do not click on the graphic, exchanges between you and the provider of the social media button do not take place. Information about the collection and use of your data in social networks can be found in the terms of use of the respective providers. More information about the Shariff solution can be found here: http://www.heise.de/ct/artikel/Shariff-Social-Media-Buttons-mit-Datenschutz-2467514.html

On our website we have integrated social media buttons of the following companies:

Facebook Inc. (1601 p. California Ave - Palo Alto - CA 94304 - USA)
Google Plus/Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway - Mountain View - CA 94043 - USA)
XING AG (Gänsemarkt 43 - 20354 Hamburg - Germany)
LinkedIn Corporation (2029 Stierlin Court - Mountain View - CA 94043 - USA)

 

Cookies

Like many other websites, we also use so-called "cookies". Cookies are small text files that are transferred from a website server to your hard drive. This automatically provides us with certain data such as IP address, browser used, operating system via your computer and your connection to the Internet.

Cookies cannot be used to start programs or to transmit viruses to a computer. Based on the information contained in cookies, we can make navigation easier for you and enable the correct display of our web pages.

Under no circumstances will the data we collect be passed on to third parties or linked to personal data without your consent.

Of course, you can also view our website without cookies. Internet browsers are regularly set to accept cookies. You can deactivate the use of cookies at any time via the settings of your browser.

cookie explanation

Data protection concerning WordPress

Our websites www.salt-solutions.de/blog, www.logbase.de, www.alexa-retail.com, www.openserv4p.de are self-hosted but based on Wordpress. To protect these websites from spam, we use the Anti Spam Plugin CleanTalk. Parameters such as certain words, IP addresses, e-mail addresses or domain names are sent to a server in the USA and compared there. If CleanTalk identifies any of the transmitted content as spam, this will be returned to us as a message and the information will be stored in the USA. According to CleanTalk, the maximum storage period is 45 days. More information about CleanTalk at https://cleantalk.org/help/CleanTalk-GDPR-Compliance

 

Google AdWords

Our website applies Google Conversion Tracking. If you have reached our website via an ad placed by Google, Google Adwords places a cookie on your computer. The conversion tracking cookie is set when a user clicks on an ad served by Google. These cookies expire after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. If the user visits certain pages of our website and the cookie has not yet expired, we and Google can see that the user has clicked on the ad and was redirected to this page. Each Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. Cookies can therefore not be traced by websites of AdWords customers. The information collected using the conversion cookie is used to generate conversion statistics for AdWords customers who have opted for conversion tracking. Customers see the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a page with a conversion tracking tag. However, they will not receive any information that personally identifies users.

If you do not wish to participate in tracking, you can refuse the required placement of the according cookie - for example via browser settings that generally deactivate the automatic placing of cookies or set your browser so cookies of the "googleleadservices.com" domain are blocked. Please note that you may not delete the opt-out cookies as long as you do not wish measurement data to be recorded. If you have deleted all your cookies in your browser, you must set the respective opt-out cookie again.
