Maglite Europe GmbH & Co. KG (hereinafter: MAGLITE) has a firm commitment to responsibly managing your data and safeguarding your privacy. All personal data collected when visiting our website are used by MAGLITE in full compliance with the provisions of the German Data Privacy Law. This data privacy policy statement explains the extent to which MAGLITE collects and processes data that are captured when users visit this website and what these data are used for. Please note that this policy does only apply to the websites under [please insert domain], and not to any websites to which we may provide a link or which are operated by our distributors or other partners.

1. Personal data
Personal data are defined as all data that can be assigned to a certain individual (e.g. name, address and e-mail address). Data which cannot be used for identification of the person concerned are not personal data (e.g. the type of browser you use).

2. Capture and Use of Data While Using Our Services
When you visit our website user data are automatically captured both for providing and administering the services and for security purposes. This includes

– the domain and host from which you access the internet,
– the domain of the website from which you have linked to us,
– your computer’s/mobile device’s operating system and browser software,
– the date and duration of your visit,
– your IP-address,

and additional information on your use of our services (e.g. searches, pages viewed, and items clicked).

All of these data are processed and used for the above-mentioned purposes and stored for a limited time. They do not permit to draw any conclusions about the identity of a natural person.

You may visit and use our website without registering or identifying yourself.

Your data will not be divulged to any other parties unless this is essential for fulfilling our services or safeguarding legitimate interests of MAGLITE, we contract other companies (e.g. technical service providers) to perform certain services or work, or we are required by law to do so (e.g. in response to official requests).

3. Cookies
Cookies are small text files that are stored locally in the cache of your internet browser. They permit recognition of the browser, among other things to prevent entered data from being lost during an interruption (e.g. because the internet collection is lost) or when switching to another of our services and back again.

Users can enable and disable cookies by changing the settings in their browser and therefore can also disable their storage or restrict it to certain websites, or configure their browser so that it informs them automatically of the possible activation of a browser, requesting their confirmation. For making full use of our website and our services, however, it is essential that you do not prevent the storage of cookies.

Except for Google Analytics (see below) we currently do not use cookies.

4. Use of Google Analytics
It is important for us to organise our website so that it is as efficient as possible, making it more attractive for our visitors. As such, it is important for us to have a clear idea of how the different parts of the website appear to anyone who accesses them.

Our website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis tool offered by Google Inc. (“Google”); this service also uses “cookies”, i.e. text files that are stored on your computer and allow us to analyse how you use the website. The information generated by the cookies about your use of the website are usually transmitted to a Google server in the United States and stored in that server. However, by enabling the IP anonymisation function on this website, your IP address will be abbreviated (by Google) within the EU Member States or other States that adhere to the European Economic Space Agreement. Only in exceptional cases will Google transmit the entire address to a server of its own that should need it to analyse your use of the website, file reports on your activity within the website and provide to us, as managers of the website in question, further services related to use of the website and the web.

The address supplied by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be linked to other data collected by Google.

You can prevent the storage of cookies by changing the settings in your browser software, but please note that in this case, you probably will not be able to make full use of our website’s functions.

You can also prevent that Google keep track of the data produced by the cookie and that refer to your use of the website (including your IP address), as well as to their processing, by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at the following link:

5. Your Rights, Questions and Suggestions
You have the right to be informed at any time about your personal data that MAGLITE has stored and as the case may be a right to correction, erasure and/or blocking of your personal data. Please submit requests for information, correction, erasure and blocking of data as well as questions or suggestions regarding data protection by MAGLITE in general to:

6. Changes to this policy
We may update this Policy from time to time. When we do, we will revise the updated date at the bottom of this page. We encourage you to frequently check this page for any changes to stay informed about our privacy policy.
