Cookies

MEILLER uses cookies on this website. Cookies are small text files in which information is stored on your computer and can be recalled with your next visit to buffer technical data or information required so that the website may correctly function.

Cookies that are required to carry out the electronic communication process or to provide certain functions are saved on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the storage of cookies for the technically error-free and optimized provision of its services.

Should you not wish to use cookies we would like to ask you to make use of the option to disable cookies provided by your browser. For details please refer to the help function of your browser. For technical reasons particular offers on our website do not work properly when cookies are disabled.

TLS encryption

This website uses TLS encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential information such as inquiries you send to us as the website operator. You can identify an encrypted connection by the address line of your browser switching from "http://" to "https://" and by the lock icon in your browser line.

When TLS encryption is activated the data you sent to us cannot be read by third parties.

Dispatch of the newsletter and press information by e-mail

Registration

If you would like to receive the newsletter offered on the website, we need an e-mail address from you, as well as information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the e-mail address and accept the receipt of the newsletter. To ensure that procedure, we use the double-opt-in registration process. In the course of this, the potential recipient can be included in a distribution list. For this, the user receives a confirmation e-mail to confirm the application legally. Only when the confirmation is made, the address is actively included in the distributor.

Use of your data

For the dispatch of our newsletter we use Evalanche. Evalanche will not forward the data mentioned here to third parties. Evalanche is an analysis service of SC-Networks GmbH, Würmstraße 4, 82319 Starnberg. Evalanche uses so-called "cookies", text files that are stored on your computer and that enable an analysis of your use of the newsletter. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the newsletter (including your IP address) is read out and sent to a server in Germany.

The newsletter contains so-called tracking pixels. This is a miniature graphic that allows us to recognize whether a newsletter has been opened by you or not. Within the scope of this retrieval, technical information such as information on the browser and your system, the terminal device used and the mail client as well as your IP address and time of retrieval are initially collected. This information is used for the technical improvement of the services based on the technical data or the target groups and their reading behaviour based on their retrieval locations (which can be determined by means of the IP address) or the access times.

The statistical surveys also include determining whether the newsletters are opened, when they are opened, which links are clicked and whether the delivery of the e-mails was successful. Furthermore, the reading time is recorded, although this is only done on a target group basis. For technical reasons, this information can be assigned to individual newsletter recipients, but it is neither our nor SC Networks/Evalanche's intention to observe individual users. The evaluations rather serve us to recognize the reading habits of our users and to adapt our contents to them or to send different contents according to the interests of our users.

Creation of a user profile

Yo be able to send you customized newsletters, an explicit tracking consent is necessary. If you have given your consent, you agree that a personal user profile may be created based on your data in order to better adapt websites and newsletters on products, services and market trends to your needs. This enables MEILLER to provide you with information that corresponds to your specific interests. Furthermore, you agree that your personal user behaviour on websites and in dealing with all e-mails of MEILLER is recorded by using cookies and tracking technology. 

Revocation

You may revoke your consent to storage of your data, e-mail address as well as its use for dispatch of the newsletter or for creating a user profile at any time, such as with the "Unsubscribe" link in the e-mails we have sent to you. The data protection measures are always subject to technical renewal. For this reason, we ask you to inform yourself about our data protection measures at regular intervals by viewing our privacy policy.
