Hereinafter, we will inform you about the collection of your personal data when using our website. Personal data is all data that relates to you personally, such as your name, address, email addresses, IP address and user behaviour.

When using the website for information purposes only, i.e. if you do not make a reservation or place an order through the website, if you do not contact us using the form on the website or otherwise transmit information to us, we do not collect personal data, with the exception of data that your browser transmits to enable you to visit the website. This information consists of the operating system used, browser type (including language and version), IP address, date and time of the visit, contents of the request (specific page), amount of data transferred, time and website from which the request is received.

When you create a customer account when ordering products or services, we save your data for the purpose of performance of the contract and delete it as soon as we are no longer legally obliged to store it. Required entries necessary for the execution of the contracts are separately marked; other entries are voluntary.

We use the data you enter for processing your reservation or order made in our online shop. In addition we continue to give your address data to an assigned courier service and, if necessary, your payment data to our bank. We delete this data after execution of the contract and expiration of statutory tax and commercial retention obligations.

Personal data is used by us insofar as this is necessary for the establishment, implementation and termination of the contractual obligation between you and us, or to protect our legitimate interests, for purposes of the technical administration of the websites, for customer administration and for product surveys and marketing, only to the extent necessary and only with your consent. Additional use or transfer of your personal data to a third party shall only be done with your consent, or when it is necessary for the purposes of contractual fulfilment. The better we understand your needs, the faster you will find the desired information on our website. GOVECS uses technical and organisational security measures to protect the personal data you provide to us from accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction or access by unauthorised persons. Our security measures are continuously improved and adapted according to the state of the art.

We constantly strive to improve our range and make our online offerings more attractive for you. We need to know which areas of our website are visited most frequently and for the longest period of time to optimise the content of the GOVECS AG website to meet your requirements. To do this, we use the following service:

This website uses Google Analytics, a Web analysis service of Google Inc. (“Google”).

In some exceptional cases, the full IP address may be transferred to a Google server in the US and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this Internet page, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports about the activities on the website and to provide additional services regarding usage of the website and Internet usage for the operator of the website.
