This privacy statement sets out how the ROWA Lack GmbH collects and uses personal data, i.e. information concerning the personal or material circumstances of an identified or identifiable individual and, if necessary, uses this data within the ROWA GROUP companies.
1. Collection and use of IP addresses
When accessing our website your IP address will be collected automatically; this is technically required to enable the communication between your device and our website. After the end of your session your IP address will be retained for a maximum of up to 30 days solely for purposes of ensuring IT Security and allowing statistical evaluation of the website use on an anonymous basis.
Unless this function has been deactivated in your web browser settings, accessing our website will initiate a data transfer of so-called “cookies” in order to offer you a more comprehensive service that is customized to your user needs. To this effect, the following guidelines apply.
What are cookies and do they identify me personally?
Cookies are alphanumerical identifiers in the form of small electronic files that are transferred to your hard drive via your computer’s web browser. The cookies on our website are only used to collect so-called usage data such as which of the individual pages you visit on our website. This information is then evaluated for statistical purposes and serves to ensure the website’s functionality and smooth navigation. As an individual user, however, you will remain anonymous; apart from the cookie information we retain no information about you.
How long will these cookies stay on my computer?
The cookies sent (so-called session cookies) will be deleted as soon as you close your web browser as they only contain information required for the one visit to our website. An exceptions are our cooky „accept cookies“, which will be saved for 30 days.
Can I prevent data from being collected and stored through cookies?
Yes, if you choose to exercise your right to refuse. This process is explained below.
Purpose, use and refusal of cookies on our website
To support the functionality of our website, we employ cookies that allow our system to recognize your browser and offer you specific services. In order to make full use of the website’s functionality, these cookies must be accepted. You can refuse the data collection of our website cookies, however, by changing the settings of your web browser in the following way: the documentation or help function of your browser will explain how you can prevent the acceptance of cookies or set up automatic notification when new cookies are sent from a website so that you can choose to accept or reject each of them manually. These settings are normally found in the browser’s data protection settings menu.
We always recommend that you log off completely each time you complete a session on a shared or public computer which has been configured to automatically accept cookies.
3. Data traffic analysis using Piwick
Like most website operators, Piwik.org collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Piwik.org’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Piwik.org’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Piwik.org may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.
Piwik.org also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. Piwik.org does not use such information to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.
4. Right to information and withdrawing consent
You are entitled to request information regarding data stored with concern to your person, and, as the case may be, request deletion or blocking of such data. You are also free to withdraw any possible consent to the collection and use of your data at any time. To do so, simply send an informal letter or email of notification to:
