Data protection statement


Data Protection

ASK Kugellagerfabrik Artur Seyfert GmbH takes the protection of your personal data very seriously.  We treat the data relating to you personally as confidential and handle them according to the statutory data protection regulations and this data protection statement.
As a rule, it is possible to use our website without entering personal data. If our web pages do gather personal data (e.g. name, address or e-mail), this is always voluntary wherever possible. Such data will not be disclosed to third parties without your express consent.
Please note that there may be gaps in security when data are transferred via the Internet (e.g. in e-mail communications). Seamless protection of data from access by third parties is not possible.

Data recording and processing

If you visit our web pages, our web server routinely saves the IP address of your Internet Service Provider. We also record the website from which you visit us, the data and duration of your visit and the type of web browser and operating system used by you. We gather such data for statistical purposes, to diagnose server problems and improve our Internet service.

This website uses Google Analytics

This website uses functions of Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Analytics. The provider is Google Inc., of 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Google Analytics uses “cookies," which are text files placed on your computer to help the website analyse how you use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including your IP address) will, as a rule, be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the USA.
If you have activated IP anonymization on this website, however, Google will store your IP address in abbreviated form within the Member States of the European Union or in other Member States of the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will your full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services for the website operator relating to website activity and Internet usage. Google will not associate your browser’s IP address, transmitted for Google Analytics purposes, with any other data held by Google.
You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser; however, please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website.  Furthermore, you can prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including your IP address) and its processing by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in provided under the following link:

Data protection statement for the use of the Facebook Plugin

Our website offers visitors the opportunity to log in to Facebook, Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA. This is done by clicking on the “Facebook” logo (an orange small “f” on a white background). By doing so, you enable Facebook to exchange data and to collect, store and use your data, irrespective of whether you are registered with Facebook.

Data protection statement for the use of Twitter

Our pages incorporate functions of the Twitter service. These functions are offered by Twitter Inc., 1355 Market Street, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA. When you use Twitter and the "re-tweet" function, the websites you visit are linked to your Twitter account and made known to other users. This also transfers data to Twitter. Please note that, as the provider of the pages, we receive no knowledge of the content of the transferred data or their use by Twitter.  For further information about this, see Twitter’s privacy information at

Data protection statement for the use of Google +1

Our pages use functions of Google +1, provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043,  USA.
The collection and dissemination of information: the Google +1 button is a way for you to share information publicly with the world. The Google +1 button gives you and other users personalized content from Google and our partners. The fact that you +1’d something will be recorded by Google, along with information about the page you were viewing when you clicked on the +1 button. Your +1s may appear to others as an annotation with your profile name and photo in Google services, such as search results or on your Google profile or elsewhere on websites and ads on the Internet. Google is recording information about your +1 activity in order to provide you and other users with a better experience on Google services. In order to use the Google +1 button, you need to have a public Google profile visible to the world which at a minimum includes the name you chose for the profile. That name will be used across Google services and in some cases it may replace another name you’ve used when sharing content under your Google account. Google may display your Google Profile identity to people who have your e-mail address or other identifying information.

Use of the collected information: in addition to the above-described uses, the information you provide to Google is used subject to the current Google main privacy policy. Google may share aggregate statistics relating to users’ +1 activity with the public, their users, and partners, such as publishers, advertisers, or connected sites.
