We process the personal data collected when you visit our website in accordance with the statutory provisions, in particular the UK Data Protection General Regulation (UK-GDPR) and the UK Data Protection Act 2018.

We continually monitor and look to improve our security measures in line with technological developments. Confidential personal data transmitted via the internet is also protected by encryption.

II. Cookies

A cookie is a small text file that is stored on your computer by the operator of a website. Cookies are primarily used to make your visit to the website more convenient, safer and faster.

We use cookies to offer additional functions that improve the experience of using our websites, to ensure a flawless registration process or to obtain information about the use of our websites and thus to better tailor the design of our websites: technically necessary cookies (e.g. customer login) are set without being asked according to applicable law, other cookies (e.g. for tracking ) are only set with your consent. In doing so, information about your use of our website is stored in files on your computer for a limited period of time. When you visit our website again, the stored information is read, which saves you from having to enter data again.

You have the option of deleting cookies in your browser and changing your browser settings so that cookies are blocked if necessary or are only permitted after individual approval. If you block the storage of cookies, you may not be able to use the website to its full extent.

III. Processing of data when visiting our websites

(1) When you visit our web pages, our web servers store the following so-called server log files by default: the IP address of your PC and the date and time of your request, the Internet browser and the operating system of your PC as well as the page from which you visited us. This is necessary in order to guarantee you a technically reliable operation. Any further personal reference based on this data is not established and is not intended. In the event of illegal use, we reserve the right to check the data for legal prosecution.

(2) We use Matomo without cookies (cookieless) on our websites. No evaluation of user behaviour (Tracking) take place. This is open source analysis software for the purpose of statistical evaluation of visitor access. The transmitted IP address is anonymised immediately after statistical collection of city and country, before it is saved. The information generated on the use of this website is stored exclusively on Aareon's own servers.

(3) On our websites we use the embedding of videos from youtube.com (USA), which you can switch on or off for yourself at the top of this page by clicking on the button "Edit privacy settings for cookies and tracking”. These videos are embedded using the YouTube mode with enhanced privacy mode. According to YouTube, in this mode, no cookies are set on your computer and no personally identifiable information is stored to play embedded videos. To retrieve and transmit the video, your IP address is transmitted to YouTube as a service of Google (USA).

YouTube sets cookies when you click on the YouTube video player and navigate directly to the YouTube website. Because these cookies are set by YouTube, AUK have no direct control over their use. Read more on the YouTube video embedding information page. For more information from YouTube, please read the YouTube Privacy Policy (Google): https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en

(4) On our websites, we use LinkedIn Insight tags from LinkedIn Ireland Unlimited Company for our advertising campaigns on LinkedIn, which you can turn on or off for yourself by clicking the "Edit Privacy Settings for cookies and tracking" button at the top of this page. Our goal is to measure the quantitative success of our LinkedIn ads (clicks), i.e. how many users click our ads to get to our site and how many people actually end up there.

The following information is sent to LinkedIn: URL, referrer URL, IP address, device and browser properties (user agent) and timestamp. This data is encrypted, the IP addresses are shortened or hashed within 7 days and the data is deleted within 180 days. LinkedIn does not share any personally identifiable information with us, but only provides reports about the website's target audience and ad performance.

(5) No other personal data is collected when you visit our websites, unless you voluntarily provide information, e.g. your name, address, telephone number or e-mail address, as part of registration, application for certain services, for a survey or receipt of company and product-related information, participation in a competition or to implement a contract. The personal data that you voluntarily provide will be stored and used for the purposes stated in each case.
