We appreciate your interest in our website and our company. 
We take protecting the personal data we collect, process and use when you visit our website very seriously. Your personal information is collected, processed and stored according to the guidelines of the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and the German Teleservices Act (TMG). In the following sections we describe what kinds of data we collect when you visit our website and how we use them:

1. Collection and Processing of Personal Data
Every hit to our website and every retrieval of data and files is logged. This is done for internal system-related and statistical purposes only. The information logged includes: the name of the retrieved file, the date and time of retrieval, the amount of data transmitted, the message regarding the successful retrieval, the browser, and the querying domain. In addition, the IP addresses of the querying computers are also logged. 
Other personal data are only collected if you submit them voluntarily, for example, in connection with an enquiry or registration.

2. Use and Disclosure of Personal Data
The personal data you provide us with will only be used to answer your enquiries, process contracts concluded with you, and for technical administrative purposes. Your information will only be shared with third parties if doing so is required for processing the contract - in particular, for passing on order information to suppliers - or for billing purposes, or if you have given your express prior approval. You have the right to revoke your approval at any time with future effect. 
Stored personal data will be deleted if you revoke your approval for storing them, if the information is no longer required for the purpose for which it was collected, or if storing it turns out to be illegal.

3. Right to Information
At your written request we will inform you about the personal data we have stored about you. Please contact us at: datenschutz@geka-world.com

4. Cookies
This website uses so-called cookies, which are stored on your computer. Cookies are small text files that can be stored locally in the memory of your computer's web browser by a website. In particular, cookies make it possible to recognise your web browser. The cookies used by our website do not collect any personal data about you or your usage. You can delete cookies at any time by selecting the appropriate menu item from your web browser or by deleting the cookies on your hard drive. Detailed instructions can be found in your web browser's help menu.
Please also read the section below on our use of Google Analytics, which also uses cookies.

5. Using Our Website Without Cookies
You can, of course, also visit our website without the use of cookies. To do so, you can decline the use of cookies in general using your web browser settings ("deactivate") or choose to be notified whenever a cookie is used and decide on a case-by-case basis whether to accept the cookie ("cookie alert"). You can set your web browser to the appropriate option by with the menu item "Extras/Internet Options" in Microsoft's Internet Explorer or the corresponding menu item in other browsers. Detailed information can be found in your web browser's help menu. Choosing to decline or show cookies may adversely affect the functionality of our website.

6. Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. Google Analytics uses so-called cookies, which are text files stored on your computer that make it possible to analyse how you use the website. The information about your website usage that is generated by a cookie is transmitted to a Google server in the United States and stored there. Google uses this information to evaluate your use of the website, to produce reports about website activity for the website operator, and to offer additional services associated with the use of the website and the Internet. Google may share this information with third parties if required to do so by law or if third parties process the information on behalf of Google. 

Because your privacy is very important to us we prevent the sharing of your IP address with Google Analytics with the operator: _gaq.push(['_gat._anonymizeIp']);. This means that Google will never see your IP address, therefore the address cannot be associated with other data stored by Google. We also do not share other information that is personal or that could be associated with a specific person with Google. You can prevent data collection by Google cookies by choosing the appropriate setting in your browser software. If you wish to block Google Analytics altogether we recommend using the Firefox add-in "NoScript" or one of the plug-ins that are specific to Google Analytics, available for a variety of browsers.

7. Social Plug-ins
Our website uses so-called social plug-ins of the social network Facebook, operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, U.S.A. The plug-in can be recognised by the Facebook logo. If you visit a page with this plug-in your browser will establish a direct connection to the Facebook servers. Use of the plug-in link lets Facebook know that you have visited the corresponding page on our website, even if you do not have a Facebook account or are not logged into Facebook at the moment. This information (including your IP address) is transmitted directly to a Facebook server in the U.S. by your browser and stored there. If you are logged into Facebook, Facebook can use the plug-in to directly associate your visit of the website to your Facebook account. If you click the "Like" button the information is also transmitted directly to a Facebook server and stored there in your profile according to use, interests and relationships, published on Facebook, and shared with your Facebook friends. Facebook will also use the information to offer additional services. Purposes, uses, rights, and setting options related to Facebook can be found in Facebook's data protection statement. If you do not want Facebook to add data collected during your visit of our website to your profile you must log out of Facebook before visiting our website.
