Privacy Policy

The protection of personal data is a priority concern for Z-LASER. That is why the Z-LASER company named in the masthead (“Z-LASER“) operates these websites in accordance with applicable legislation on the protection of personal data and data security.

The following provisions provide information about the data we collect on these websites, what we use it for, and who we may provide it to.

Collected data and purpose of processing

We use cookies on these websites. Further information can be found in our Cookie Policy, which also describes how you can choose to object to the use of cookies and data collected via cookies with anonymous or pseudonymous usage profiles.

Access to our website is logged for security analysis purposes and defence against attacks. However, even in these cases, with the exception of the IP address, no personal data is collected and used. An evaluation of IP addresses takes place exclusively in the event of an attack. Log data is deleted promptly and regularly.

In addition, we collect personal data (eg., names, addresses, telephone numbers or email addresses) in connection with the operation of our website, but only if you voluntarily make such data available to us (eg., through registration, contact requests, surveys, etc.), and we are entitled to their processing or use on the basis of your given consent or else on the basis of legal provisions.

In principle, we only use this data for the purposes you provided it for, for example, to answer your inquiries, process your orders, or give you access to certain information or offers, as indicated at the beginning of this statement.

Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies,” text files that are stored on your computer and that allow for an analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by cookies about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, in the case of activation of IP anonymization on this website, your IP address will be shortened beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to the Google server in the US, and transferred and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity, and to provide the website operator with other services related to website activity and internet usage. Please note that Google Analytics has been extended by the code “anonymizeIp();” in order to guarantee an anonymized collection of IP addresses (also known as IP masking). The IP address transmitted by Google Analytics within its Google Analytics framework will not include other data merged by Google. You can prevent the storage of cookies with the corresponding setting of your browser software; however, we point out that such a case you may not be able to use all the functions of this website in full. You may also record the data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) on Google as well as Google’s processing of such data, by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at the following link.

Data Disclosure

If you have given your consent or we otherwise have the legal authority to do so, we may transfer your personal data to subsidiaries of Z-LASER for the above-listed purposes.

In connection with the operation of this website and the services provided through the website, Z-LASER works together with service providers, such as for hosting or IT maintenance.

If recipients are located in countries outside the European Economic Area (“Third World countries”), where laws do not guarantee the same level of data protection as in your home country, Z-LASER will take alternative steps to ensure adequate levels of privacy.

As a matter of principle, we will only pass on your personal data to Z-LASER subsidiaries in Third World countries if they have implemented the Binding Corporate Rules (“BCR”). For more information about the Z-LASER BCR, see “Downloads.”

The transfer of data takes place exclusively within the framework and in compliance with applicable legal regulations. We will not sell or otherwise market your personal information to third parties.

Z-LASER will respond to all legitimate requests for information and, if necessary, corrections, additions, or deletion of personal data.
