Privacy Policy

PRIVACY POLICY

We are delighted that you have shown interest in our company. Data protection is of a particularly high priority for the management of ProTom International Holding Corporation. Therefore, we strive to conform to the highest possible standards of data protection including the enhanced provisions of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) put in place by the European Union (EU) as of May 2018.

ProTom International Holding Corporation has implemented numerous technical and organizational measures to ensure the most complete protection of personal data processed through this website. However, Internet-based data transmissions may in principle have security gaps, so absolute protection may not be guaranteed. For this reason, you may wish to transfer sensitive personal data to us via alternative means, e.g. by telephone.

By using our website, you consent to the practices described in this privacy policy.

Personal Data Collected

In order to make our downloadable content available to you, we collect personal data from you.

Data being collected: will vary from time to time and this will be obvious to you when we ask you to fill in the form. For example, your email address, last name, first name, job title, industry sector.
Purpose: we will use this information in order to deliver to you the requested content and, from time to time, marketing communications based on your interests.

Our service allows visitors to our site to learn more about our business, download content, and provide their contact information and other demographic information. This information and the contents of our website are stored on servers of our website host, HubSpot. They can be used by us to connect with visitors to our website and to determine what services your company is interested in. All information we collect is subject to this Privacy Policy. We use all information collected solely to optimize your user experience or our marketing activities.

Subscription to our newsletters

ProTom International Holding Corporation informs its customers and business partners regularly by means of a newsletter about developments in our business. The company’s newsletter may only be received if (1) you have a valid e-mail address and (2) you subscribe to the newsletter. During the subscription for the newsletter, we also store the IP address of the computer system assigned by the Internet service provider (ISP) and used by you at the time of the subscription, as well as the date and time of the subscription. The collection of this data is necessary in order to understand the (possible) misuse of your e-mail address at a later date, and it therefore serves the aim of legal protection for you and us.

There will be no transfer of personal data collected by the newsletter service to third parties except to our vendor, the host of our website, Hubspot. The subscription to our newsletter may be terminated by you by contacting us at privacy@protominternational.com at any time. It is also possible to unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time by using the corresponding link found in each newsletter.

Contact possibility via the website

The website of ProTom International Holding Corporation contains information that enables quick electronic contact to our company, as well as direct communication with us, which also includes a general email address. If you contact us by email or via a contact form, the personal data so transmitted are automatically stored. Such personal data transmitted on a voluntary basis to us are stored for the purpose of processing or contacting you. There is no transfer of this personal data to third parties.

Collection of anonymous data and information

The website of ProTom International Holding Corporation collects a series of general data and information when a user or automated system calls up the website. This general data and information are stored in the server log files. We may collect (1) the browser types and versions used, (2) the operating system used by the accessing system, (3) the website from which an accessing system reaches our website (so-called referrers), (4) the sub-websites, (5) the date and time of access to the Internet site, (6) an Internet protocol address (IP address), (7) the Internet service provider of the accessing system, and (8) any other similar data and information that may be used in the event of attacks on our information technology systems.

When using these general data and information, ProTom International Holding Corporation does not draw any conclusions about you. Rather, this information is needed to (1) deliver the content of our website correctly, (2) optimize the content of our website, (3) ensure the long-term viability of our information technology systems and website technology, and (4) provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for criminal prosecution in case of a cyber-attack. Therefore, ProTom International Holding Corporation analyzes anonymously collected data and information statistically, with the aim of increasing the data protection and data security of our enterprise, and to ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data we process. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data that may be provided.

Marketing Emails

The marketing emails sent by ProTom International Holding Corporation contain so-called tracking pixels. A tracking pixel is a miniature graphic embedded in such e-mails, which is sent in HTML format to enable log file recording and analysis. This allows a statistical analysis of the success or failure of online marketing campaigns. Based on the embedded tracking pixel, ProTom International Holding Corporation may see if and when an email was opened by you, and which links in the email were clicked.

Data collected in the tracking pixels are stored and analyzed in order to optimize the management and sending of marketing emails, as well as to adapt the content of future marketing emails to better match your interests. These personal data will not be passed on to third parties except our website host, Hubspot. You are entitled to revoke your consent to this tracking at any time by contacting us at privacy@protominternational.com. After a revocation, these personal data will be deleted. ProTom International Holding Corporation automatically regards a withdrawal from the receipt of the newsletter as a revocation.

Cookies

The Internet pages of ProTom International Holding Corporation use cookies. Cookies are text files that are stored in a computer system via an Internet browser.

Many Internet sites and servers use cookies. Many cookies contain a so-called cookie ID. A cookie ID is a unique identifier of the cookie. It consists of a character string through which Internet pages and servers can be assigned to the specific Internet browser in which the cookie was stored. This allows visited Internet sites and servers to differentiate your individual browser from other Internet browsers that contain other cookies. A specific Internet browser can be recognized and identified using the unique cookie ID. Through the use of cookies, ProTom International Holding Corporation can provide the users of this website with more user-friendly services that would not be possible without the cookie setting. The website user that uses cookies does not have to enter access data each time the website is accessed, because this is taken over by the website, and the cookie is thus stored on the user’s computer system.

You may, at any time, prevent the setting of cookies through our website by means of a corresponding setting of the Internet browser used, and may thus permanently deny the setting of cookies. Furthermore, already set cookies may be deleted at any time via an Internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in all popular Internet browsers. If you deactivate the setting of cookies in the Internet browser used, not all functions of our website may be entirely usable.

Legal basis for processing

In general, the legal basis for our processing of personal information is your consent and/or the pursuit of a legitimate interest which is direct marketing in support of our business. Other legal bases may apply depending on circumstances.

Social media engagement

On this website, we have integrated components of the social networks Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and LinkedIn. Your interactions with these networks are governed by the privacy statements of the companies providing these services.
