Information That You Give Us
You give us information when you order a Newsletter or subscribe to the viaWALA, speak to our Customer Services, write to us using the Contact Form or send us a job application. This information can include your name, address, telephone number, fax number and email address.
Examples of information that we collect and analyse are the Internet Protocol Addresses (IP) that connect your PC with the Internet, confirmation that emails have been received and opened, logins, email addresses, passwords, information about the PC and its connection to the Internet such as browser type, browser version and browser number, operating system and platform and the complete Uniform Resource Locator (URL) clickstream to, through and out of our website, i.e. the pages on our website that you visit and the order you visit them in, including date and time, cookie or Flash cookie numbers and the products you have looked at. Our website also uses browser data such as cookies and Flash cookies (also known as Local Shared Objects) and other, similar data in order to prevent misuse, in particular fraudulent misuse, and for other purposes. Storage of cookies is anonymous and does not enable any identification of personal data. Storage is solely for the purpose of optimising display.
Cookies are used in a number of places on our website. These neither damage your computer nor contain viruses. Instead, they make our website more user friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small files that are placed on your computer and saved by your browser.
Most of the cookies we use are known as ‘session cookies’ and are automatically deleted after your visit. Other cookies remain on your end device until you delete them. These cookies enable us to identify your browser on your next visit.
You can configure your browser so that you are informed about the placement of cookies and can decide whether to only accept cookies on exceptions or in particular circumstances or to generally decline them. You can also set your browser to automatically delete cookies when you close it. If you disable cookies, you may not be able to use all of this website’s functions.
Use of Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. (‘Google’). Google Analytics uses ‘cookies’ (small files), which are saved on your computer and make it possible to analyse your website usage.
Please note that on this website, Google Analytics has been extended to include the code ‘gat._anonymizeIp();’ to ensure that only anonymised IP addresses are recorded (known as IP masking).
As a result of IP anonymisation being activated, the information generated by the cookies about your usage of this website is saved within European Union (EU) Member States or other signatory states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area (EEA). Only on exceptions will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the USA and then truncated. Google shall use this information on behalf of this website’s operator to evaluate your usage of the website, create reports about website activities and provide the website operator with further services associated with the internet and website usage. According to Google, the IP address transmitted from your browser within the scope of Google Analytics shall not be consolidated with other data from Google. You can prevent cookies from being saved by activating the corresponding settings in your browser software. However, this may prevent you from being able to use all of this website’s functions in full. You can also prevent Google from collating and processing the cookie-generated website usage data (incl. your IP address) by downloading and installing the browser plug-in found under the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.
To prevent Google Analytics from collating your data, click the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en
By downloading and installing the browser plugin provided at the link, you will have enabled an opt-out cookie, which prevents any future collation of your data when you visit this website.
The use of Facebook social plugins
The WALA Heilmittel GmbH websites www.dr.hauschka.com and www.dr.hauschka-med.de use social plugins ('plugins') for the social network facebook.com, operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA ('Facebook'). Typically, the plugins can either be identified by means of a Facebook logo (white 'f' on a blue tile or a 'thumbs up' sign) or are labelled with the text 'Facebook Social Plugin'. The list and appearance of the Facebook social plugins can be found at developers.facebook.com/plugins. If you open one of our web pages that contains such a plugin, your browser creates a direct connection to the Facebook servers. The content of the plugin will be directly transmitted from Facebook to your browser, which will integrate it into the website. We therefore have no influence over the scope of the data that Facebook collates with the assistance of this plugin and the following information is based on our current level of knowledge: The connection to the plugin notifies Facebook that you have accessed the corresponding page on our website. If you are logged in to Facebook, Facebook can assign your page visit to your Facebook account. If you use the plugins, for example by clicking the 'Like' button or making a comment, the corresponding information will be transmitted directly from your browser to Facebook, where it will be stored. If you are not a Facebook member, there is still a possibility that Facebook will discover and store your IP address. With regard to the scope and purpose of the data collation and the use of the data by Facebook, as well as your rights in this regard and the settings that can be used to protect your privacy, please see the data protection information on Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/policy.php. If you are a Facebook member and do not want Facebook to collate information about you via our website, please log out of Facebook before visiting our WALA GmbH website. You can also use browser add-ons to block Facebook social plugins.
