Privacy Policy:

1. Visit to our Website

When you visit our website, the browser used on your device automatically sends information to the server of our website. This information is temporarily stored in a so-called log file. The following information is collected without your intervention and stored until automated deletion:

  • IP address of the requesting computer,
  • date and time of access,
  • name and URL of the accessed file,
  • website from which the access is made (referrer URL),
  • the browser used and, potentially, the operating system of your computer as well as the name of your access provider (user agent).

We process the mentioned data for the following purposes:

  • ensuring a smooth connection of the website,
  • ensuring comfortable use of our website,
  • evaluation of system security and stability, and
  • further administrative purposes.

The purposes for processing the data as listed above constitute the legitimate interest in the data collection. However, the collected data is not used to gather personal information about you. Furthermore, we use cookies on our website.

What are cookies?

Cookies are small text files that are exchanged between the web server and your web browser. They are stored locally on your device (PC/laptop, tablet or smartphone) when you visit our website. Cookies do neither harm your device, nor contain viruses, Trojans or other malicious software. They allow us to recognise the user when visiting our website again and provide a smooth use of repeatedly requested services. Cookies are used to save your settings, so that we can continually improve our services and better respond to the demands and interests of our users.
Please note that the use of cookies does not enable us to draw conclusions to your identity.

What types of cookies are used?

We use so-called session cookies to determine that you have already visited particular pages on our website. In addition to that, we also use temporary cookies to improve usability. Those cookies are stored on your device for a specified period of time. If you visit our website again, it automatically recognises that you have already been with us and what settings you have made, so that you do not have to enter those again.

Most browsers accept cookies automatically. Nevertheless, you can configure your browser so that no cookies are stored on your device or a note appears whenever a new cookie is created. However, disabling cookies entirely may mean that you cannot use all features of our website.

2. Contact:

When you contact us via the e-mail address info@wte.de, we will store the personal data you provide to us for the purpose of processing your request. The data is used solely for processing the communication.
After processing and completion of your request, the data will be deleted entirely, unless there is a legal retention requirement; e.g. due to commercial or tax law. In this case, we will delete your data after the relevant deadline.
The processing of personal data is used exclusively for handling the contact. You can object to the storage of your personal data at any time; as a result, the conversation cannot be continued.
