3. Cookies

The websites of A. Monforts Textilmaschinen GmbH & Co. KG use cookies. Cookies are text files, which are filed and saved on a computer system via an Internet browser. Several of the cookies used by us are deleted again after the end of the browser session, i.e. after closing your browser (so-called session cookies).

Cookies allow A. Monforts Textilmaschinen GmbH & Co. KG to provide the users of this website with more user-friendly services, which would not be possible without setting cookies.

The data subject can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time using an appropriate setting of the Internet browser and thereby permanently object to the setting of cookies. Furthermore, cookies that have already been set can be deleted using an Internet browser or other soft-ware programs. This is possible in all of the commonly-used Internet browsers. If the data subject deactivates the setting of cookies in the Internet browser used, under certain circumstances, not all functions of our website will be fully usable.

4. Newsletters

On the A. Monforts Textilmaschinen GmbH & Co. KG website, the users are given the opportunity to subscribe to our company newsletter. Which personal data are sent to the data controller during the course of ordering the newsletter are shown in the input mask used for this purpose. As a general rule, our company’s newsletter can only be received by the data subject, if the data subject has a valid e-mail address and the data subject registers for the newsletter. For legal reasons, a confirmation e-mail is sent to the e-mail address entered by the data subject for the first time for dispatch of the newsletter, using the double-opt-in procedure. This confirmation e-mail has the purpose of checking whether the owner of the e-mail address has authorised the receipt of the newsletter, as the data subject.

When subscribing to the newsletter, we also store the IP address allocated by the Internet Service Provider (ISP) of the data subject whose computer system was used at the time of the subscription, as well as the date and time of the subscription. The collection of these data is required, in order to trace the (possible) misuse of a data subject’s e-mail address at a later time and is therefore for the data controller’s legal security.

Personal data, which are collected within the context of registering for the newsletter, are exclusively used for sending our newsletter. Furthermore, subscribers to the newsletter can informed by e-mail, if this is necessary for operating the newsletter service or a relevant registration, which may be the case in the event of changes to the newsletter service or a change to the technical circumstances. No disclosure takes place of personal data to third parties, which are collected within the context of the newsletter service. The subscription to our newsletter may be cancelled by the data subject at any time. The consent to the storage of personal data, which the data subject has granted to us for sending the newsletter, may be revoked at any time. A corresponding link is available in each news-letter for the purpose of revoking the consent.

5. Contact opportunity via the website

If a data subject establishes contact with the data controller by e-mail or via a contact form, the personal data sent by the data subject will automatically be stored. Such personal data, which are provided on a voluntary basis, will be stored for the purpose of pro-cessing or establishing contact with the data subject.
