Thank you for your interest in our online presence and our offers. We want to ensure easy and convenient navigation on www.wscad.com and make the site as safe as possible. This privacy statement informs users about the nature, scope, and purpose of the collection and use of personal data by the responsible provider (WSCAD GmbH, Dieselstraße 4 D 85232 Bergkirchen) on this website

We naturally comply with the legal provisions of the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG), the German Telemedia Act (TMG) and other data protection regulations.

Scope of data collection and storage
To optimize our website and the services we provide, we collect and store data such as the name of the accessed web page, file, date and time of the retrieval, amount of data, message about successful retrieval, browser type and version, the operating system of the user, referrer URL (the previously visited page), IP address and the requesting provider. This is done anonymously, without identifying the users of the site personally. If necessary, user profiles are created using a pseudonym. Here, too, there is no link between the pseudonyms and the natural persons for whom they were created.

When you contact us (e.g., via a contact form or e-mail), your details are stored for the purpose of processing the request and in the event that follow-up questions arise. If you entrust us with the provision of a service, we collect and store your personal data only to the extent that is necessary for the provision of the service or the execution of the contract. To do this, it may be necessary for us to pass on your personal data to companies we use to provide the service or handle the contract.

Special-purpose data use We adhere to the principle of earmarked data usage and collect, process and store your personal data only for the stated purposes and to the extent necessary to achieve these purposes. Your personal data will not be transferred to third parties without your express consent, unless this is required to provide the service to you or to execute the contract. The communication of this information to state institutions and authorities that are entitled to receive such information shall likewise only occur within the framework of statutory information obligations or if we are required to provide this information by a court decision.

We also take corporate privacy very seriously. Our employees and the service providers appointed by us are obliged not to divulge any personal data in accordance with § 5 of the Federal Data Protection Act (Bundesdatenschutzgesetz: BDSG).

Data collection through the use of Google Analytics
Our website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. Google Analytics uses so-called „cookies”. These are text files that are stored on your computer and allow an analysis of your use of the website. Cookies typically capture information about the operating system, your browser, your IP address, the web page previously invoked by you (referrer URL) and the date and time of your visit to our website.

If IP anonymization is activated on this website, however, Google will first truncate your IP address within the member states of the European Union or in other states that are party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. Google will use this information on behalf of the operator of this website to analyze your use of the website, to compile reports on the website activities and to provide the website operator with other services associated with website and Internet use. The IP address provided by your browser for Google Analytics will not be combined with other data held by Google.

Use of Facebook Social Plugins
Our website uses social plugins („Plugins”) of the social network facebook.com, which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA („Facebook”). The plugins are identifiable by a Facebook logo (white „f” on a blue tile or a „thumbs up” sign) or are marked with the notice „Facebook Social Plugin”. The list and appearance of Facebook Social Plugins can be viewed here: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/./

When you visit a page of our website that contains a social plugin, your browser establishes a direct connection to Facebook servers. Facebook directly transfers the plugin content to your browser, which embeds the latter into the website. We therefore have no influence on the amount of data that Facebook collects using this plugin.

By integrating the plugin, Facebook receives the information that a user has accessed the corresponding page of the offer. If you are logged into Facebook, your visit can be assigned to your Facebook account. If you interact with the plugins, for example by clicking „Like”, or entering a comment, the corresponding information is transmitted from your browser directly to Facebook and stored by it. Even if you are not a member of Facebook, it is possible that Facebook may be able to determine your IP-address and store it. According to Facebook, only an anonymous IP address is stored in Germany.

The purpose for and scope of the data acquisition and information about the way in which the data is processed and used by Facebook, as well as your rights in this respect and the settings options for protecting your privacy can be found in Facebook’s privacy policy at: https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/.

If you are a Facebook member and do not wish to have Facebook collect any data about you through this offer on our website and associate it with your stored membership data, you need to log out of Facebook before visiting the site.

It is also possible to block Facebook Social Plugins by using add-ons for your browser, for example with the „Facebook Blocker”.
