Privacy Statement

 

Dear NOVOMATIC Website Visitor:

1 INTRODUCTION

The protection of your privacy is a very serious concern for the NOVOMATIC Group and therefore we want you to be able to visit our web pages without having to be concerned about security issues. It is generally possible to use our website without the disclosure of personal data. The following Privacy Statement will provide you with an overview of how the NOVOMATIC Group guarantees the protection of your privacy, the type of data being collected as well as its main purpose.

2 DATA PROCESSING ON OUR WEBSITE

Whenever you visit our website, some of the data we collect is used for statistical evaluation. The extent of such data is described below. This data is only used internally and serves primarily to continuously improve our website and adapt it to suit your business or personal requirements. For tracking purposes, we employ the Piwik tool (piwik.org). During a visit to our website we collect and evaluate the following data which your browser sends to our server. The data is collected using JavaScript which is run from each web page. JavaScript places a tracking cookie on your computer to identify your browser session and to recognize repeated access to the website. The following data is collected:

  • Request (name of the requested data file) (e.g. www.beispiel.de/index.html) including parameters (e. g. www.novomatic.com/de/search?keyword=verantwortung)
  • Browser type and version (e.g. Internet Explorer 6.0)
  • Browser language (e.g. German)
  • Operating system used (e.g. Windows XP)
  • Internal resolution of your browser window
  • Screen resolution
  • JavaScript activation
  • Installed plugins (Java, Flash, Real, Quicktime, …)
  • Cookies on/off
  • Color bit depth
  • Referrer URL (the previously visited website including parameters, e.g. search items in search engines, …)
  • IP address to identify country of origin. The IP address itself is only used for geographical allocation and to identify the provider, and is immediately deleted again afterwards.
  • Time and date of access
  • Clicks

Any personal details you have entered in one of our forms, either to request information, apply for a job or get in touch with us, are also saved. The NOVOMATIC Group will use your personal data exclusively in accordance with all relevant laws and regulations.

3 IP ADDRESS

The IP address is transmitted on every server request to let the server know where the response has to be sent. Your Internet Service Provider (ISP) gives you an IP address as soon as you connect to the Internet, and the ISP can retrace which IP address was assigned to which of its customers at any given time. For as long as the IP address is saved, it is theoretically possible to identify the owner of the Internet connection via the ISP. For this reason, we and our statistics providers do not save the IP address permanently but only temporarily for session recognition and for security reasons (for example, to ward off hacker attacks). The IP address is then immediately deleted, so that any collected data is made anonymously and it is no longer possible to identify the user, not even via the ISP.
