Data protection

Assystem is pleased about your visit to our website as well as your interest in our company and our products. We take the protection of your private data seriously and would like you to feel comfortable when you visit our web pages. The protection of your private sphere during the processing of personal data is an important concern for us and is therefore reflected in our business processes. We process personal data collected during your visit to our website according to the stipulations of the data protection laws of the country in which the unit responsible for data processing is located. The Assystem web pages may contain links to other suppliers that are not covered by this data protection declaration.

Collection & processing of personal data

When you visit our web pages, our web server will routinely save the name of your internet service provider, the website from which you are visiting us, the web pages you visit on our site as well as the date and duration of your visit. Personal data in excess of this set are only stored when you actively provide them, e.g. as part of a registration, survey, competition or inquiry.

Use & forwarding of personal data & appropriation

Assystem will use your personal data for the technical administration of websites, customer administration, product surveys and marketing, but only to the extent required for this specific purpose. Transfer of personal data to government institutions and authorities is only performed within the framework of binding national legal regulations. Our staff members, agencies and dealers are obliged by us to maintain confidentiality.

Youth protection

Assystem does not use any content that puts young people at risk. Persons under 18 years should not transfer any personal data to us without the approval of their parents or guardians. We do not request any personal data of children, do not collect them and do not forward them to third parties.

Cookies

Cookies are small files that are temporarily (2 years, if you do not delete them) stored on your hard disk. This eases navigation and makes a website much more user-friendly. Cookies can be used to determine whether you have already interacted with our pages from your computer. These cookies make it possible to identify your computer, but do not create a link to a person. Assystem uses cookies exclusively for intermediate storage to manage its programs (e.g. for e-business application), results and control characteristics. The session management of our online services (e-business applications) requires cookies. You can, of course, also view our website without cookies. Most browsers automatically accept cookies. You can prevent the storage of cookies on your hard disk by changing your browser settings to "Do not accept cookies". Details of how to do that are provided in the instructions of your browser manufacturer.

Safety

Assystem uses technical and organisational safety measures to protect the data administrated by us against accidental or deliberate manipulation, loss, destruction or access by unauthorised persons. Our safety measures are continuously improved according to the technological developments.

Communication via E-Mail

Communication via e-mail may have security loopholes. E-mails may, for example, be rerouted and viewed on their way from and to Assystem by knowledgeable internet users. When we receive an e-mail from you, we assume that we are authorised to provide a reply by e-mail. Alternatively, you should explicitly refer to another way of communication.

Right to information

Assystem will tell you on request, promptly and in writing in accordance with current laws, which, if any, of your personal data we are storing. If you are registered as a user, we offer you the option of viewing these data directly and of deleting or changing them as required. We will correct our information on request if we should be found to be storing incorrect information in spite of our efforts to keep data correct and current. Further information can be found on the respective, local website. Please contact our data protection representative if you have questions regarding the processing of your personal data. The data protection representative and his team are also available in the event of information requests, suggestions or complaints.
