Privacy

Esbit places great emphasis on protecting your data and privacy. Below, we will inform you on the collection and use of personal data on our website:

1. Anonymous data collection
As a rule, you can use our website without submitting any personal data.

2. Collection and processing of personal data
If you enter any personal data on our website, you do this on a voluntary basis, e.g. when submitting them for a newsletter subscription or when completing the contact form.

We will store and use data you have entered in our contact form, e.g. name, company, e-mail address and phone number, for the purpose of communicating with you. Please note that the data is not encrypted when being transferred. You should therefore never submit any confidential data in that manner.

When subscribing to our newsletter, you will have to enter your e-mail address, which we will only use to send the newsletter to you. The newsletter contains the latest information on our products and other things to know about outdoor adventures. We will store your e-mail address until you cancel your newsletter subscription. You can do so at any time by clicking on the designated link in the newsletter or sending us a message. No further costs will be incurred, except those based upon basic rates. By cancelling your newsletter subscription, you object to the use of your e-mail address, which we will then delete without any delay.

3. Cookies
EA cookie is a small text file sent by a web server to a browser and sent back by the browser to the web server when the website is accessed again later. It is stored on your computer’s hard drive.
We use cookies in order to optimize our website based on your needs. Cookies make the website more user-friendly and navigation easier because they allow your data like name and address being stored for the duration of your visit. Such data will be deleted after your visit. We also use cookies in order to store your personal preferences. You will thus not have to enter them any time you visit our website.
You can adjust the settings of your browser so that it will not permit the use of cookies. You will find the instructions on how to do that in the browser’s “help” menu point. Please note, however, that this may impair our website’s functions considerably.

4. Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a Google Inc. (“Google“) web analysis service. Google Analytics uses so-called cookies, text files stored on your computer that allow an analysis of your use of the website. As a rule, this user information generated by the cookie is transferred to a server in the U.S. and stored there. If the IP-address anonymization function has been activated, however, within Member States of the EU or in other EEA countries Google will shorten your IP address. The full IP address will only in exceptional cases be transferred to a Google server in the U.S. and shortened there. Google will use this information on behalf of and for the operator of this website in order to analyze your use of this website, collate reports on the website activities and to render other services in the context of website use and Internet use. Your IP address transmitted by your browser within the framework of Google Analytics will not be correlated with other Google data.
You can prevent the storage of cookies by adjusting your browser software accordingly. We have to point out, however, that you will then not be able to use our website’s functions in full.

You can also prevent the transfer of the data generated by the cookie and related to your use of this website (including your IP address) to Google as well as such data’s processing by Google by clicking on the following link and downloading and installing the respective browser plug-in: tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de

Alternatively to the browser plug-in, or within browsers on mobile devices, you can click on the following link to install an opt-out cookie that will prevent any future analysis by Google Analytics on this website (this opt-our cookie does only work in this browser and for this domain; if you delete your cookies in this browser, you have to click on the link again) LINK

5. Use of Facebook plugins
On our website, we use so-called social plugins (“plugins“) by the social network Facebook, operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook“). The plugins are marked with a Facebook logo or “Soziales Plug-in von Facebook“ or “Facebook Social Plugin“. You will find an overview of the Facebook plugins and what they look like here: http://developers.facebook.com/plugins

If you enter a page of our website that includes such a plugin, your browser will set up a direct link with the Facebook servers. Facebook will transfer the plugin’s content to your browser directly and embed it in the page. Through this embedment, Facebook will receive the information that your browser has called up the page even if you don’t have any Facebook profile or are not logged on to Facebook. This information (including your IP address) will be transferred to a Facebook server in the U.S. directly by your browser and stored there. If you are logged on to Facebook, Facebook can immediately place your visit to our website in your Facebook profile. When you are interacting with the plugins, e.g. use the “Like” button or post a comment, this information will also be directly transferred to a Facebook server and stored there. The information will also be published in your Facebook profile and shown to your Facebook friends.

You will find details on the extent and purpose of Facebook’s data collection, processing and use at www.facebook.com/policy.php, where you will also find instructions on the pertinent settings and your rights and how to protect your privacy.
If you don’t want Facebook to immediately place the data collected via our website in your Facebook profile, you will have to log out of Facebook prior to any visit to our website. You can also prevent the installation of Facebook plugins through your browser’s adds-on, e.g. the “Facebook Blocker“ (http://webgraph.com/resources/facebookblocker/).
