This Privacy Statement explains which information we collect and how we use it.

Data Storage

When you visit the Yokogawa websites, details of your visit are stored on our server. The data collected in this way is evaluated by Yokogawa for business purposes, so that we can continue to optimize our websites and adapt them to the needs of our users.

Cookies

Yokogawa uses “cookies”, which are small text files placed in your browser cache, to help the website analyze how users use the site.

You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser. The Help menu on the menu bar of most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies and delete cookies that already exist.

However, we recommend that you do not disable the cookies function completely, as you may not be able to use the full functionality of the Yokogawa websites.

Personal Data

Personal data is collected in the following ways:

Contact Form

When you fill in our contact form, the information you send us is stored. We will use the data you have made available to us to answer your enquiries, process your orders or ensure you have access to specific services. In addition to this, it allows us to update our address book.

Newsletter

To subscribe to our newsletter, you must register with your email address as a minimum. This address is stored together with any other information provided voluntarily by you such as your first and last name, postal address etc.

We reserve the right to send you personalized newsletters. This means that by monitoring and documenting the browsing and clicking behavior of individual subscribers, we build interest profiles for those subscribers. Newsletters for specific recipients can then be designed and distributed based on these interest profiles. Recipients are thus provided with targeted information tailored to their needs.

Information regarding personal data stored by us about you is naturally provided by Yokogawa within the constraints imposed by the German Telemedia Act (TMG) and the latest version of the German Data Protection Act. You may revoke your consent to the storage of personal data at any time. When processing personal data, your legitimate interests are considered in accordance with legal requirements.

Personal data held about you will only be passed on to third parties insofar as this is necessary to fulfill our business purposes.

Share content via plugins (Facebook, Google+1, Twitter & Co.)

The content on our pages can be shared on social networks such as Facebook, Twitter or Google+ in accordance with data protection regulations. This site uses a sharing tool. This tool establishes the direct contact between the networks and users only when the user actively clicks on one of these buttons.

This tool does not automatically transfer user data to the operators of these platforms. If the user is logged in to one of the social networks, an information window appears when using the social buttons of Facebook, Google+1, Twitter & Co. in which the user can confirm the text before sending it.

Our users can share the contents of this site in social networks in accordance with data protection regulations without complete surfing profiles being created by the network operators.
