Our web site uses Matomo (formerly Piwik) - open-source software for the statistical evaluation of user visits. Cookies are used for this, which are text files stored on your PC. Usage information generated by the cookies is sent to our server and stored for user analysis purposes, helping us to optimize the web site. This procedure immediately renders your IP address anonymous, ensuring that you remain an anonymous user as far as we are concerned. The server on which the statistical data is stored belongs to a German provider and is also physically located in Germany.
You can prevent Matomo from collecting your data at any time by adjusting your current selection under "Data protection settings". Doing so places an opt-out cookie that prevents your data from being collected when you visit our website in future. Please note that web analysis will only be prevented as long as the opt-out cookie is stored in your browser; if you delete the cookie, web analysis will not be prevented in future.

We use the "Polyfill.io" service of The Financial Times Limited, Number One Southwark Bridge, London. This enables us to reproduce content in the best possible quality even on older browser versions. When you load a website that uses the Polyfill service, your browser will download all the Polyfill files necessary to display the website successfully or optimised in your browser. In order to provide the Polyfills, the Service receives certain technical information from your browser, including: browser details; connection data (such as your IP address); the URL of the website that made the request to the Service. This information is used to determine which Polyfills are required by your browser. The legal basis for this processing is Art. 6 paragraph 1 sentence 1 letter f DSGVO. The processing is based on our legitimate interest in enhancing your user experience and for the general optimisation of our website. The data will be deleted as soon as the purpose for which they were collected has been fulfilled. Further information on the handling of the transferred data can be found in the data protection declaration of polyfill.io: https://polyfill.io/v3/privacy-policy/.
You can prevent the collection and processing of your data by polyfill.io by deactivating the execution of script code in your browser or by installing a script blocker in your browser (you can find this for example at www.noscript.net or www.ghostery.com).
On our website we use Google Fonts of the company Google Inc. For the European area the company Google Ireland Limited (Gordon House, Barrow Street Dublin 4, Ireland) is responsible. We have embedded the Google fonts locally, i.e. on our web server - not on Google's servers. This means that there is no connection to Google servers and thus no data transfer or storage.
What are Google Fonts?
Google Fonts used to be called Google Web Fonts. This is an interactive directory of over 800 fonts that Google provides free of charge. With Google Fonts, you could use fonts without uploading them to your own server. However, in order to prevent any information transfer to Google servers in this regard, we have downloaded the fonts to our server. This way we act privacy compliant and do not send any data to Google Fonts. Unlike other web fonts, Google allows us unlimited access to all fonts. So we have unlimited access to a sea of fonts to get the most out of our website. You can find out more about Google Fonts and other issues at https://developers.google.com/fonts/faq?tid=111266255.
Our website contains links to other websites in some places. We take all reasonable care to check these links. FALK Salzgitter GmbH is not responsible for the content of linked pages or for ensuring data privacy on these pages.
For security reasons and in order to safeguard the transmission of confidential data you send to us, this website uses SSL encryption. You can recognize an encrypted connection by your browser’s address bar, which changes from “http://” to “https://” and displays a lock symbol.
When SSL encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
If we have stored personal-related data of you, we will only process this data for the time period required to serve the purpose it was stored for or for the time period required by law.
If the storage purpose ceases to exist or if the storage period required by law expires, the personal data will be routinely blocked or deleted in accordance with legal requirements.
Logfiles are deleted according to provider specifications:
- The access logs of the Web servers capture, which page views took place at which time. They contain the following data: IP, directory protection user, date, time, pages viewed, protocols, status code, data volume, referer, user agent, host name viewed.
- The IP addresses are stored anonymously. The last three digits are removed, i.e. 127.0.0.1 becomes 127.0.0.*. IPv6 addresses are also anonymized. The anonymous IP addresses are kept for 60 days. Information about the directory protection user used is anonymized after one day.
- Error logs, which log incorrect page views, are deleted after seven days. Those include, in addition to error messages, the IP address accessing the page and, depending on the error, the website accessed.
- Access via FTP is logged with anonymous information on user name and IP address and stored for 60 days.
- The mail logs for sending e-mails from the web environment are anonymized after one day and then kept for 60 days. During anonymization, all data concerning the sender/recipient etc. is removed. Only the data at the time of sending and the information on how the e-mail was processed (queue ID or not sent) are retained.
- Mail logs for sending via our mail server are deleted after four weeks. The longer retention period is necessary to ensure the functionality of the mail services and to combat spam.
- It is not possible to individually define the storage period.
A storage going beyond this is exceptionally possible. In this case, however, the IP addresses of the users are deleted or alienated so that an assignment of the calling client is no longer possible.
Your data from the input mask of the contact form will be deleted when the respective conversation with you has ended. The conversation is terminated when it can be seen from the circumstances that the matter in question has been conclusively clarified. The additional personal data collected during the sending process (e.g. IP address) will also be deleted according to the aforementioned provider specifications.
