Privacy policy


Scope of validity
This privacy policy is intended to inform the users of this website in accordance with the Federal Data Protection Act and the Telemedia Act on the type, scope and purpose of the collection and use of personal data by Gerhard Lang Recycling GmbH.

We take your privacy very seriously and treat your personal information confidentially and in accordance with the law.

Bear in mind that data transmission on the Internet can generally be subject to security loopholes. Full protection against access by third parties is not possible.

Access data
We, or the site provider, collect data about access to the site and save it as “server log files”. The following data is logged:

  • Website visited
  • Time at the point of access
  • Amount of data sent in bytes
  • Source / reference from which you reached the page
  • Browser used
  • Operating system used
  • IP address used

The collected data is for statistical purposes only and to improve the website. We reserve the right to retrospectively check the server log files should concrete evidence indicate unlawful use.

This website uses Cookies. These are small text files that are stored on your device. Your browser accesses these files. The use of cookies increases the user-friendliness and security of this website.

Popular browsers offer the preference option of not allowing cookies. Note: There is no guarantee that you will be able to access all functions of this website without restrictions if you opt for such preference options.

Handling personal data
We only collect, use and transfer your personal data if this is permitted by law or if you consent to the collection of data.

Personal information is all information that is used to identify your person and which can be traced back to you - such as your name, e-mail address and telephone number.

Handling contact data
If you contact us through the available contact options, your details will be stored so that they can be used to process and answer your inquiry. This data shall not be passed onto third parties without your consent.

Handling comments and contributions
If you leave a post or comment on this website, your IP address will be saved. This is for security purposes: If your text violates the law, your identity might be tracked.

Google Analytics
This website uses the "Google Analytics" service provided by Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheater Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA) to analyze the website usage of users. The service uses “cookies” - text files stored on your device. The information collected by the cookies is usually sent to a Google server in the US and stored there.

This website uses IP anonymization. The IP address of the user is shortened within the member states of the EU and the European Economic Area. This shortening prevents your IP address from being linked to you. Under the terms of the agreement, which website operators have entered into with Google Inc., they use the information collected to compile an evaluation of website use and website activity, and to provide Internet-related services.

You have the option of preventing cookies from being stored on your device by making the appropriate settings in your browser. There is no guarantee that you will be able to access all functions of this website without restrictions if your browser does not allow cookies.

Furthermore, you can use a browser plug-in to prevent the information collected by cookies (including your IP address) from being sent to Google Inc. and from being used by Google Inc. The following link leads you to the corresponding plug-in:

Rights of the user: Information, correction and deletion
As a user, you are entitled to receive free information about what personal data has been stored about you upon request.
