Saving Customer Data

The customer agrees that personal data such as first name, surname, e-mail address, street, number, zip code, town and country (company, telephone number, and state – if indicated by the customers) are stored in internal MetGIS data files to be able to provide personalized product offers and to facilitate future visits to our webshop. These data are also relevant for a correct billing of MetGIS GmbH as well as - partly - for log-in and use of forecast products ordered. A data transfer to third parties is not affected.

Credit card data, if provided by the customer in the course of the payment procedure, will be processed by the international payment provider Wirecard Central Eastern Europe GmbH, which uses the latest software for secure payment. MetGIS GmbH does not have access to any credit card data any time.

Cookies

The websites of the provider (www.metgis.com. www.metgis.com/shop) use cookies to facilitate both the use and purchase transactions and to offer further functions. A cookie is a text file which is copied from a web server to the hard disk of the user. Cookies cannot execute programs or transfer viruses on a computer.

Piwik

MetGIS websites access the web analysis software Piwik to analyze the use of the website and to enable a constant improvement of the offered products. Therefore, by help of the browser, cookies (text files) are stored on the computers of the customers. Data storage is processed for analysis purposes only, and we do not transfer these data to other parties.

If the customer disagrees with our use of Piwik, he may make use of the opt-out function of his web browser or the opt-out form of Piwik. From this time the collection of session data by Piwik is prevented. However, if the customer deletes his browser cookies, the Piwik opt-out cookie will be deleted as well and has to be activated again.

Promotional e-mails

In the course of the registration process customers have the option to agree to the provision of news from MetGIS GmbH concerning products, current offers and other relevant information by e-mail, especially in form of newsletters.
