The following information explains what kind of personal data is collected during your visit to our web page, or at the time of ordering, and how that data will be used:

    • a. Google Analytics and Google Remarketing

      This website uses Google Analytics and Google Remarketing. These are services provided by Google Inc. ("Google"). Google uses "cookies" - text files that are stored on your computer and that enable analysis of your use of the website. The information provided by the cookies regarding your use of this website (including your IP address) is sent to a Google server in the USA and stored there. Google then removes the last three characters of this IP address to ensure that the IP address can no longer be uniquely assigned. Google observes the data protection provisions of the "US Safe Harbor" agreement and is registered with the US Department of Commerce's "Safe Harbor" programme.

      Google uses this information to analyse your use of the website, to compile website activity reports for website operators and to provide additional services linked to website and Internet usage. Google also forwards this information to third parties provided this is stipulated by law or if third parties process this information on behalf of Google.

      Third party providers, including Google, publish advertisements on websites. Third party providers, including Google, use stored cookies to publish advertisements based on a user's previous visits to this website. Google will under no circumstances connect your IP address to other data from Google. The recording and storage of data can be objected to at any time with effect for the future. You can deactivate the use of cookies by Google by means of a setting in your browser software, by going to the page www.google.de/privacy/ads and clicking on the "opt-out" button. Alternatively, you can deactivate the use of cookies by third party providers by visiting the deactivation page of the Network Advertising Initiative at http://www.networkadvertising.org/managing/opt_out.asp.

      However, we advise you that in this case you may not be able to use all the functions of this website to their full extent. By using this website, you declare your agreement with the processing of data concerning you collected

      by Google in the manner described above and with the aforementioned purpose thereof.

    • b. Use of Facebook social plugins

      Our website uses the social plugins ("plugins") of the social network facebook.com, which is operated by Facebook Inc., ("Facebook"). The plugins are identifiable by any of the Facebook logos (a white "f" against a blue background, or a "thumbs up" sign) or are featured with the addition of "Facebook Social Plugin". For a list of Facebook social plugins and what they look like please visit the following address: http://developers.facebook.com/plugins

      When you call up a web page on our site that contains a plugin of this nature, your browser builds a direct link to the Facebook servers. The content of the plugin is sent directly from Facebook to your browser, and is included from here into the website. Consequently, we have no influence over the range of data captured by Facebook with the aid of this plugin and therefore keep you informed based on the level of our knowledge:

      Through the integration of the plugin, Facebook receives the information that you have opened the corresponding page on our website. If you are simultaneously logged into Facebook, Facebook can assign the page visit to your Facebook account. When you interact with plugins, for example by clicking on the "Like" button, or adding a comment, the corresponding information is transmitted directly to Facebook by your browser and stored there. If you are not a member of Facebook, it is nevertheless possible that Facebook may ascertain and store your IP address.

      The purpose and extent of data capture and its further processing and use through Facebook, as well as your rights in this connection and the settings options available to you to protect your privacy are explained in the data protection section on Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/policy.php

      If you are a Facebook member and do not want Facebook to collect data about you via our website and to link this with your data stored on Facebook, you need to log off from Facebook before visiting our site.

      Likewise, it is possible to block Facebook social plugins with add-ons for your browser, e.g. "Facebook blocker".

    • c. Use, transfer and deletion or blocking of personal data

      Insofar as you have made your personal data available to us, we will only use said data for answering your enquiries, concluding a contract made with you, for advertising purposes and for technical administration.

      Your personal data will otherwise only be transferred or disclosed to a third party if required for the implementation of the contract, in particular the forwarding of order data to the ordering system in question, or for billing purposes, if we are under obligation by law to transfer such data, or if you have already consented willingly thereto.

      Any stored personal data is deleted once you revoke your permission allowing the data to be stored (and no legal, statutory or contractual retention periods provide an obstacle to its erasure), if knowledge thereof is no longer required for the purpose of storing that information, or if it is illegitimate to do so for any other legal reason. In the cases provided by law, data will be blocked instead of deleted.

    • d. Right of withdrawal

      You have the right to revoke your consent to the use and/or disclosure of your data at any time with effect for the future by sending an e-mail to: office[at]shield-agency.at, or by post.

    • e. Right to information

      We shall be pleased to inform you about your stored personal data if you submit a written request. Please mark your enquiries to the "Webmaster" in the section entitled "contact us".

    • f. Data security

      We make efforts, by taking all available technical and organisational measures, to forward your personal details on the web and store it in such a way that it cannot be accessed by a third party.

      Since we cannot guarantee complete data security when communicating by e-mail, forwarding of confidential information by e-mail is done at the individual's risk.
