Data protection & Terms of use

ODU GmbH & Co. KG on the topic of Data Protection

The protection of personal data such as name, address, telephone number and e-mail is very important to us. This is why we conduct our web activities in compliance with the laws on data protection and data security. The following explains which information we possibly collect and how we handle it.

Personal data

We do not collect any personal data through our websites without your consent. Only you decide if you want to make these data known to us or not, for example, in the framework of an online application, survey or the like.

In general, we use your personal data to answer your inquiry. To maintain customer relationships, it may furthermore be necessary for us to store and process your personal data so that we can respond to your wishes better or improve our products and services, for us (or a third party working for us) to use these data in order to inform you of ODU GmbH &Co. KG offers that could benefit your business, or for us to conduct online surveys in order that we can better fulfil your requirements.

Naturally we respect it if you do not want to hand over your personal data to us in order to support our customer relationships - particularly for direct marketing or market research. We will not sell your personal data to third parties or otherwise market such data.

Collected information that is not personal information

When you access our websites, sometime information is automatically (meaning not by means of registration) collected that cannot be matched to a particular person (e.g., the Internet browser and operating system used; domain name of the website from which you came; number of visits, average duration of a visit, pages called up). We use this information in order to determine how attractive our websites are and to improve their contents.

Use of Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators and providing other services relating to website activity and Internet usage. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google's behalf. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser, however please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. By using this website, you consent to the processing of data about you by Google in the manner and for the purposes set out above. The collection and storage of data may be revoked at any time with respect to future services. In view of the debate regarding the use of analytics tools with full IP addresses, we would like to point out that this website uses Google Analytics with the “anonymizeIp()” function, which ensures that IP addresses are processed in truncated form only and prevents them from being traced to a specific user. Install the "Opt-out add-on" for Google Analytics if you do NOT want your data to be processed.
