Data protection and terms of use

Insofar as the Internet site offers the possibility to enter personal or business data (email addresses, names, addresses), then the disclosure of this data by the user is done expressly on a voluntary basis. The use of contact data published within the framework of the company information or comparable information, such as postal addresses, telephone and fax numbers as well as email addresses by third parties for the purpose of sending information not explicitly requested is not permitted. The right to take legal action against the senders of so-called spam mails who are in violation of this prohibition is expressly reserved.

Megger Germany GmbH feels obligated to preserve and protect the privacy of its customers and business partners. On this website visitors can disclose personal data. In addition to using it to directly carry out the respective service, this data is also used to tailor the products and services offered by Megger Germany GmbH to the customers’ needs.

The data transmitted by the customer is collected, processed, and used by Megger Germany GmbH for the purposes mentioned above. The customer is thereupon informed, in accordance with section 33 of the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG), that the relevant data conveyed by them will be stored and/or transmitted in accordance with the applicable data protection regulations. The customer/business partner thereby agrees, however, that the data they have transmitted via the forms from Megger Germany GmbH can be stored and used in accordance with the aforesaid. Megger Germany GmbH is therefore entitled, where applicable, to transmit the data provided by the customer/business partner within the framework of the contract initiation and contract execution to the affiliated partners of Megger Germany GmbH in order to realise the respective services, where applicable, at home and abroad.

Facebook Social Plugins

This website uses so-called Social Plugins from the Facebook social network, which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA. The plugins can be identified by a Facebook logo or the words “social plugin from Facebook”. An overview of the Facebook plugins and their appearance can be found here:

If you access a page on our website that contains such a plugin, your browser establishes a direct connection with the servers of Facebook. The content of the plugin is transmitted from Facebook directly to your browser, where it is integrated into the website.

By integrating the plugin, Facebook receives the information that your browser has accessed the corresponding page of our website, even if you do not have a Facebook account or are not currently logged in to Facebook. This information (including your IP address) is sent from your browser directly to a Facebook server in the USA and stored there. If you are logged into Facebook, Facebook can directly assign your visit to your Facebook account. If you interact with the plugins, for example, by clicking the “Like” button or entering a comment, the corresponding information is also transmitted directly to a Facebook server and stored there. The information is also posted on Facebook and shown to your Facebook friends.

Facebook can use this information for the purpose of advertising, market research, and the user-oriented design of Facebook pages. To this end, Facebook creates profiles based on usage, interests and relationships, e.g., to evaluate your use of our website with regard to the advertisements displayed to you on Facebook, to inform other Facebook users about your activities on our website, and to provide further services related to the use of Facebook.

If you do not want Facebook to assign the data collected via our website to your Facebook account, you need to log out of Facebook before visiting our website.
