WireMasters GmbH & Co. KG ("WireMasters Germany", also referred to as “we”, “us”, or “our”) respects the online privacy of visitors like you ("you") to our website, www.wiremasters.de (the "Website").
WHAT IS A COOKIE?
A "cookie" is a small file created by a web server that can be stored on a user's device for use either during a particular ("session" cookie) or future ("persistent" cookie) browsing session. This file may include information about internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), URLs of any referring or exited webpages, operating system, and/or date and time stamps.
First-party cookies are set by the website you are visiting, and they can only be read by that site. Certain features of our Website use session and persistent cookies.
"Session" cookies are temporarily stored on your hard drive and only last until they expire at the end of your browsing session. "Permanent" cookies remain stored on a user's hard drive until they expire or are deleted by a user. We use permanent browser cookies on our Website to recover certain preferences set for use by you during repeated visits to our Website.
Third Party Cookies
You also may encounter third party cookies on our Website. Third Party Cookies are cookies that are stored on your web browser by a party other than WireMasters Germany and may gather browsing activity (such as information you have entered or choices you have made) across numerous websites that you visit and across numerous browsing sessions. These cookies also help improve how our Websites and services function and perform, customize your interaction with our Websites, and help provide more relevant messaging and marketing communications to you. We are currently using third party cookies to track and analyze usage. If you wish to delete Third Party Cookies, you should adjust your browser settings as described in the "CHOICES ABOUT HOW WE USE AND DISCLOSE YOUR INFORMATION" section of this Policy.
WireMasters Germany also uses third party ad targeting to display ads for our programs and services that may be of interest to you and to track the performance of the advertisements. This service is able to follow users to third party websites not affiliated with WireMasters Germany and displays ads when users visit those other sites.

You also may learn more about internet advertising practices and related consumer resources at http://www.aboutads.info/consumers/ and http://youronlinechoices.eu/ (if you are located in Europe).
Like most websites, as you navigate through and interact with our Website, we may passively collect information about your browsing activities using cookies and other automatic data collection technologies, such as Internet tags, or web beacons (clear gifs., pixel tags, UTM codes, and single-pixel gifs), and navigational data collection (log files, server logs, etc.), to improve website functionality and analytics.
Google Analytics and Similar Technologies
In addition to cookies, we may use other similar technologies on the Website in service of our legitimate interest in maintaining and improving the Website and the services it offers to you. We have entered into an agreement with Google for the outsourcing of our data processing and fully implement the strict requirements of the German data protection authorities when using Google Analytics. Google Analytics cookies are stored based on Art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO and we have a legitimate interest in analyzing user behavior to optimize our website functionality. For example, we use Google Analytics to collect and process statistical data about the number of people using our Website and to better understand how they find and use our webpages.
If you do not want Google to receive data from your browser when the pages are viewed, here's the link to the Google Analytics Opt- Out solution: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en, This plug-in prevents the browser from requesting the Analytics code, so Google will not receive any data when the page is viewed. The plug-in is only available for Microsoft Internet Explorer 11, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari and Opera. According to Google, the browser blocks the Google Analytics script after installation. For more information, please visit: http://www.google.com/intl/de/analytics/privacyoverview.html.
We have activated the Google IP anonymization feature on this Website, using the code "gat.anonymizeIp" for the anonymous collection of IP addresses (known as "IP Masking"). Where applicable, your IP address will be shortened by Google within the European Union or European Economic Area prior to transmission to the United States (or any other third countries). Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address sent to a Google server in the US and shortened there. Google will use this information on behalf of the operator of this website to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity, and to provide other services regarding website activity and Internet usage for the website operator.
The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with any other data held by Google. Google Analytics has certified compliance with the EU-US Privacy Shield Framework set forth by the U.S. Department of Commerce and represented that it will maintain adequate compliance with applicable data protection laws using the Privacy Shield or another accepted, lawful mechanism to support cross-border data transfers.
