Mues-Tec GmbH & Co. KG, including its subsidiaries (referred to as “Mues-Tec,” “we,” or “us”), values your privacy and is committed to safeguarding your personal information. This Privacy Policy outlines our privacy practices and provides you with choices regarding the collection and use of your information, including data obtained from your online activities.

In developing our privacy policies and standards, Mues-Tec adheres to global principles and frameworks, including the OECD Guidelines on the Protection of Privacy and Transborder Flows, EU Directive 95/46/EC, APEC Privacy Framework, Madrid Resolution on International Privacy Standards, and the Australian Privacy Principles under the Privacy Act 1988 (Cth).

Mues-Tec has established an inter-company agreement governing the transfer and processing of personal data within the Mues-Tec group worldwide.

The BCRs, along with EU model contracts in some regions, enable Mues-Tec to ensure that EEA personal data transferred to and processed by Mues-Tec entities outside the EEA complies with applicable data protection laws and is adequately protected.

8. Tools for automatic data collection

The following sections provide additional information about commonly-used web technology tools. Cookies A “cookie” is a small data file transferred by a website to your computer’s hard drive. Mues-tec or its service providers send cookies when you surf our site or sites where our ads appear, make purchases, request or personalize information, or register yourself for certain services. Accepting the cookies used on our site, sites that are “powered by” another company on Mues-tec behalf, or sites where our ads appear may give us access to information about your browsing behavior, which we may use to personalize your experience. Cookies are typically classified as either “session” cookies or “persistent” cookies.

  • Session cookies do not stay on your computer after you close your browser.
  • Persistent cookies remain on your computer until you delete them or they expire. Most browsers automatically accept cookies by default, but you can usually refuse cookies or selectively accept cookies by adjusting the preferences in your browser. If you turn off cookies, there may be some features of our site that will not be available to you and some Web pages may not display properly.

In certain countries you may also adjust your Mues-tec and associated cookie preferences by using a preference manager tool in this Statement which is available from the site you are visiting. You can find information on popular browsers and how to adjust your cookie preferences in the help and support section of your browser. From time to time, Mues-tec and third parties with whom we partner will use Flash local shared objects (LSOs) and similar technologies to store Flash content information and preferences. LSOs perform similar functions to HTML browser cookies and deposit small files on your computer, which are commonly called Flash cookies. Flash cookies are different from browser cookies and cookie management tools provided by your browser may not remove Flash cookies. To learn more about Flash Cookies and how to manage the related privacy and storage settings, please visit the Adobe Systems website . Web beacons Some Mues-tec and third-party web pages, applications, and HTML-formatted email use Web beacons alone or in conjunction with cookies to compile information about your website usage and your interaction with email, as well as to measure performance on Mues-tec, applications, and websites “powered by” another company on Mues-tec behalf. A web beacon is an electronic image, called a single-pixel (1×1) or clear GIF. Web beacons can recognize certain types of information on your computer such as cookies, the time and date of a page viewed, and a description of the page where the web beacon is placed. Depending on the context, web beacons may also refer to content on a third-party server, and may be used by service providers to deliver relevant advertising to you. You may be able to disable web beacons in email messages by not downloading images contained in the message you receive (this feature varies depending on the email software used on your personal computer). However, doing this may not always disable a web beacon or other automatic data collection tools in the email message due to specific email software capabilities. For more information about this, please refer to the information provided by your email software or service provider. If you choose to receive marketing emails or newsletters from Mues-tec as specified in Your choices and selecting your privacy preferences, Mues-tec may automatically collect personal information about you. For example, through web beacons and personalized URLs embedded in these emails or newsletters, Mues-tec can track whether you’ve opened those messages and whether you’ve clicked on links contained within those messages. For more information on embedded web links, see below. Embedded Web links Emails from Mues-tec, Internet keyboard keys preconfigured by Mues-tec, and promotional icons preinstalled on your PC desktop often use links designed to lead you to a relevant area on the Web, after redirection through Mues-tec’s servers. The redirection system allows Mues-tec to change the destination URL of these links, if necessary, and to determine the effectiveness of our marketing initiatives. In emails, such web links may also allow Mues-tec to determine whether you have clicked a link in an email, and this information about the interaction may be connected to your personal identity. If you do not want Mues-tec to collect information about the links that you click, you can:

  • change your choice about how you receive communications from Mues-tec (i.e. choose a text-based version of the message where available) or choose not to click links in an email that Mues-tec sends
  • delete the promotional icons preinstalled by Mues-tec on your PC desktop or choose not to click on those
  • reconfigure the Internet keyboard keys on certain PC models to launch a destination URL of your choice by using the instructions provided with your PC
