Data Protection Information
Information Obligation Regarding Data Privacy and Data Privacy Information
Thank you for your interest in the website of the ARMANO Messtechnik GmbH (“ARMANO”). ARMANO appreciates the importance of handling your private data carefully and thus protecting your privacy. We therefore value your trust in ARMANO handling this information conscientiously.
ARMANO takes data privacy seriously and adheres to relevant statutory regulations on data protection, such as the EU General Data Protection Regulation (EU GDPR), the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and the German Telemedia Act (TMG). The aforementioned regulations provide a high level of data protection and your personal data are treated confidentially to this effect.
Information Concerning the Collection and Use of Data
With regard to the prevailing data protection regulations, ARMANO is the website owner and, in accordance with the relevant regulations of the EU GDPR, responsible for the processing of your personal data. The contact details of the website owner ARMANO can be found in the imprint of this website http://www.manometer-thermometer.com/en/Imprint_2154.html.
The collection of data by ARMANO is based on the information given to us. ARMANO requires these data regularly to carry out its business operations – the production, the distribution and the sale of pressure and temperature measuring instruments. If personal data (e.g. name, address, e-mail address) are collected, for instance either by trade fair visits and business contacts including e-mails, or by the e-mail addresses provided on the website or the contact form, these are provided on a voluntary basis. These data are processed according to Art. 6(1)(b) of the EU GDPR for the performance of a contract, to take steps prior to entering into a contract, or if requested and permissible (with given consent according to Art. 6(1)(a) of the EU GDPR), for own marketing purposes and are not forwarded to third parties for purposes other than those specified without your express consent. In some circumstances, there may also exist a legitimate interest of ARMANO according to Art. 6(1)(f) of the EU GDPR. Authorised third parties, which receive data, might be, for example, service providers. Providing your personal data is not stipulated by law. Contractually, the provision is only required if you yourself become a contracting party, yet it is regularly necessary to carry out business operations and for the contractual processing in order to be able to communicate with you in the context of the contract initiation or execution and to be able to ensure processing.
The data are stored for the period and duration of pre-contractual measures or the business relationship, or apart from this, as long as you have an information need regarding our products. The stored data (usually name, address, e-mail address) will be deleted as soon as the purpose has ceased and unless statutory tax, archiving or other obligations require otherwise. In case of existing statutory obligations, the data will be deleted after the expiration of the statutory periods.
ARMANO points out that especially the unencrypted data transmission on the internet (e.g. when communicating via e-mail) can hold security holes. Complete protection of the data against access by third parties cannot be guaranteed.
Information, Rectification, Deletion, Limitation of Processing and Data Portability as well as Revocation
At any time, you have the right of free access to your stored personal data, the origin and recipients as well as the purpose of data processing. This includes right of information, rectification, deletion, limitation of processing and data portability of those data unless statutory regulations require otherwise. In case of a given consent to collect and store your data, you have the right to revoke this consent to store your data at any time. Storage and collection of the data remain legitimate until revocation. Please do not hesitate to contact the respective contact address in the imprint via http://www.manometer-thermometer.com/en/Imprint_2154.html or the data protection officer in case of questions regarding this matter.
Contact Person for Privacy

Further data privacy information concerning the website
Collection and use of the data
When visiting the website, some data are collected automatically by our IT system. These are mainly technical data (e.g. web browser, operating system or time of the page view). The data are collected automatically when visiting the website. To some extent, the data are collected to ensure a faultless provision of this website, whereas other data might be used for analysing your user behaviour.
Analytics tools and third-party tools
When visiting the website, the user behaviour can be statistically analysed. This is mainly done with cookies and so-called analysers. The analysis of your user behaviour is in principle anonymous. The user behaviour cannot be traced back. You can contradict this analysis or prevent it by non-use of certain tools. Details can be found in the data protection information on the individual analysers and plug-ins.
SSL / TLS encryption
This website uses an SSL / TLS encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential information, such as enquiries via the contact form. You can recognise an encrypted connection when the address bar of the browser switches from “http://” to “https://” and the lock symbol appears in the browser line. If the SSL / TLS encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
If you provide enquiries via contact form, your information from this enquiry form, including your provided contact details, are stored by us for the purpose of processing the enquiry and in case of follow-up questions.
Processing of the data, which were entered in the contact form, is based on your consent (Art. 6(1)(a) of the EU GDPR). You have the right to revoke this consent at any time. In order to do this, just send us an informal notification via e-mail. The legitimacy of the data processing operations, carried out until revocation, shall remain unaffected.

In so-called server log files, the website provider automatically collects and stores information, which is automatically transmitted by your browser. This information is, for example, browser type / browser version, utilised operating system, referrer URL, hostname of the accessing computer and time of the server request.
These data cannot be assigned to a specific person. We do not carry out a data fusion of those data with other data sources. ARMANO reserves the right to check the data subsequently if concrete indications for illegal use should become apparent. The legal basis of data processing is Art. 6(1)(b) of the EU GDPR, which allows the processing of data for the performance of a contract or to take steps prior to entering into a contract.
Processing data (customer and contract data)
ARMANO collects, processes and uses personal data only if they are required for the establishment, the content-related design or the modification of the legal relationship (inventory data). This is carried out in accordance with Art. 6(1)(b) GDPR, which allows the processing of data for the performance of a contract or to take steps prior to entering into a contract.
The collected customer data are deleted after completion of the order or termination of the business relationship. Legal retention periods remain unaffected.
