The Website is operated by SJ International GmbH, Keithstr. 21, 10787 Berlin and allows you, as a user, to gain an overview of our know-how and services and to contact us. We collect, processes and use personal and user data in compliance with the German Telemedia Act (TMG) and the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG).

1. Collection and use of personal data
Users may visit our website without registration.

2. Web analysis
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google, Inc. Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, i. e. text files that are installed in your terminal device and allow an analysis of your use of the website. Generally, information generated by cookies about your use of this website will be transferred to and stored in a server of Google. On this Website the code “gat. anonymizeIp()” was added to Google Analytics to guarantee anonymous collection of IP addresses. As a result, your IP address will be shortened within member countries of the European Union or other countries that are signatories of the Agreement on the European Economic Area before being transmitted to a server of Google. The IP address transmitted by your browser will not be associated with any other data held by Google. This data will only be passed on to third parties on the basis of statutory regulations or within order data processing. In no case, Google will link your data with other data stored by Google.
You can prevent the installation of cookies by selecting appropriate settings in your browser software; note, however, that in this case you may not be able to use all functions of this Website to the full extent.
You can also prevent data related to your use of the Website and generated by the cookie (including your IP address) from being transferred to and processed by Google, by downloading and installing the following browser add-on available from the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.

3. Use of cookies
We use text files known as cookies or image files known as web beacons, each of which are stored on the user’s display device. Both these technologies assist in gathering data on user-specific settings, as well as technical information which allows the user to be identified. This information shows when and how users employ the website and allow us to continually improve it. The use of cookies offers users the benefit of not having to re-enter their personal data every time they fill in forms on the website. Using cookies is normal practice on many websites. Cookies are stored on the user’s display device rather than on the website. We only use cookies to read information on the user’s hard disk which were saved by a cookie stored on that site.
Users will be informed that cookies are used when they first use our website. By choosing the corresponding settings on their browsers you can prevent cookies being stored on your display device, delete cookies previously stored there or be notified of your storage. Details of how to do this will be provided on your browser. However, please note that if you choose these settings you may not be able to use the whole of the website’s functionality. If users use the website without choosing appropriate settings in their browsers, they thereby consent to the use of cookies as described in this Privacy Notice.

4. Sharing Information
Personal data are treated as strictly confidential and will not be disclosed to third parties without consent of the user, unless this is necessary for the purpose of executing orders, settling payments, processing inquiries or customer care. The date may also be disclosed if necessary to protect other users or if it’s disclosure is required by law.

5. Safeguarding
We have technological and operational security policies and procedures in place to protect your personally identifiable information from loss, misuse, alteration or unintentional destruction. We will at all times make reasonable efforts to prevent any unauthorized access of your personal data as well as any unauthorized use or falsification of such data, and to minimize related risks.
