Privacy Policy -

We are looking forward to your visit to the Marbach website and to your interest in our company and our products. We are committed to keeping your private data safe and secure. In what follows we would like to inform you how your personal data will be processed by Marbach. The website is an online facility offered to you by Karl Marbach GmbH & Co. KG, Heilbronn and Marbach Werkzeugbau Gmbh, Heilbronn (hereafter called Marbach).

Protection of privacy and confidentiality
The protection of your privacy when processing personal data as well as the security of all business data is an important concern for us, which we consider in our business processes. Data protection and information security are part of our corporate policy. We treat the data collected during your visit to the Marbach website confidentially and process it according to the legal regulations as well as this data protection statement. Please refer to the following chapter.

Marbach websites may contain links to websites of other providers. This privacy statement does not cover the websites of other providers.

Collection and processing of personal data
Marbach collects, stores and processes your personal data only if this is permitted by law or if you have given your consent.

We receive this data in two ways: either you have communicated the data to us or we collect it when you use our services.

Data that you supply us with
As a rule, you can use our website without giving us personal information directly. For some services, such as contacting us, registering at the Marbach Shop or registering for our newsletter, we will need to be provided with personal information, such as your name, e-mail address and postal address. This is necessary in order to be able to process the respective service quickly and in a user-friendly way or to offer the service at all. Detailed information on all services offered by Marbach on this website can be found under the section Separate Services of this Privacy Policy document.

Data obtained through the use of our services
For technical reasons, some data is automatically generated when you visit our website. This always includes your IP address. The Internet Protocol (IP) address is a unique number assigned to your computer. It is necessary for you to be able to move around the internet at all, since all the data packets you need to surf are sent there. In Germany, the IP address for most private connections is reassigned each time the connection to the internet provider is disconnected. This usually happens at least once a day. IP addresses also determine the country from which a PC accesses a web page.

Log data
The logging data of the web server belong to automatically occurring data. Each time you access a page from our online facility and every time a file is retrieved, access data about this process are stored in a log file on our server. Each record consists of:
 - the page from which the new page or file was requested
 - the name of the retrieved file or page
 - the date and time of the request, the success of the request, and the server workload at the time of the request
 - the transferred data volume
 - the IP address assigned to you by your provider
 - if you log in with a user account: the login information for the corresponding web service
 - the client detection (mobile, desktop, etc.)
 - the user agent

The stored data are analyzed anonymously for statistical purposes only.

Cookies are small files that contain a string in which certain information is stored openly or encrypted. Cookies are sent from the server to your computer and stored there. They are initially used to identify the computer from which a website has been accessed. If you log on to a website, cookies are used to notify the server and to check the permissions to access the page. Each cookie has an expiration date, after which it is no longer valid. Cookies allow the tracking of a user's path through various pages of the homepage and also across different websites.
