Data protection and security are important to the Sauter Group of companies, as is your trust in our products and services. Sauter is committed to process your personal data responsibly and in compliance with legal requirements. This Privacy Policy describes how the Sauter company referred to in the “corporate information” section of this website (“Sauter”; “we”) collects and processes your personal information when you use the website.

Personal data we collect and process in order to make our website available

You can visit our website and obtain information about our products and services without telling us who you are. As with any connection with a webserver, however, the server of our webhosting provider logs and temporarily stores certain technical data.

Such data includes the IP address and operating system of your device, the date and time of access, or the type of browser you use to access this website. This is required for technical reasons. To the extent we, thereby, process personal data, we do so based on our interest in making this website available and providing you with the best possible user experience.

Data we collect to respond to your inquiries

You can visit our website and obtain information about our products and services without telling us who you are. When you contact us using the “contact form” we will collect the data and information that you provide to us. This will include personal data such as your name, business email address or phone number and the address of the company you work for or on behalf of which you contact us.

We will use your personal data for the purposes for which you provide it to us. Specifically, we will use it to respond to your inquiry, to call you if we have any questions about your inquiry, to process your orders, or to provide access to further information or offerings. Therein, we have a legitimate interest. Based on our interest in informing existing and prospective customers about Sauter products and services, we may also follow-up on your inquiry and inform you on new products, services or offerings. However, you may at any time opt-out of receiving such information.

Why and how we use cookies

We use cookies on the website to provide you with the best possible user experience and to help us improve our services. Cookies are text files that are downloaded to your computer or mobile device when you visit a website or use an application.

Some of the cookies we use (so-called session cookies) are necessary in order to make available certain functions of the website. We also use cookies to analyze the use of the website in order to optimize our services and to enable the use of marketing tools. Further information on web analysis and our marketing activities can be found below.

Data we process to analyse and improve the use of our website

In addition, based on our interest to bring you the best possible user experience, we analyze the use of this website to gain insights on how we may improve our services. With the exception of your IP address, which may constitute personal data in some circumstances, this information is anonymous data. It may include information on the type of web browser or device you use to access the website, the geographical region where you access the website, the data and time of your access, and the parts of our websites you access.

We use Google Analytics and other analytics services to help us with this analysis. The web analytics services use cookies to collect data. The information generated thereby may be transmitted anonymously to and saved on the server of a web analytics services provider in the U.S. or elsewhere outside of the EU/EEA or Switzerland. By adjusting your web-browser’s settings accordingly or by setting an opt-out cookie of the respective web analytics service you can prevent the service from storing cookies on your device and from collecting data. Further information on data collection on this website can be found in the section “Details on data collection”.

We use an advertising technology provided by Google (DoubleClick) to target marketing measures regarding our products and services at potential customers when they use other websites. This serves our legitimate interest in promoting our products and services. More information on how Google uses cookies as well as about your choices in that regard can be
