This site is operated by altek International Ltd, Timaru Farm, Barton Road, Brigg, North Lincolnshire, DN20 0LS, United Kingdom.
Depending on which services you claim, not all parts of this data protection regulation will apply to you in detail, especially about 4 SOCIAL NETWORKS. This Data Protection Regulation contains all paragraphs that apply to the companies of the Wissler Group: https://www.wissler-group.com/en/Datenschutz/
1. PERSONAL DATA
We will process and use your personal data only with your consent or as otherwise permitted by law. We will gather, process or use personal data that are needed for the performance and use of our services, or that you voluntarily provide to us.
“Personal data” refers to all data containing information about personal or situational matters concerning a determined or determinable customer. This includes, without limitation, such information as your e-mail address, delivery address, gender, birth date, telephone number or age.
2. WHY WE GATHER PERSONAL DATA
We need your personal data according to Art. 6 GDPR for several purposes:
- To process your orders and deliveries for products and services (your e-mail address, street address, first and last names, form of address, telephone number, fax number, birth date and a delivery address if other than your own street address).
- If you pay by credit card, we will also ask for your credit card information. We will use that information only for your current order transaction. Please input it afresh each time you place an order. If you do not wish to send your credit card information over the internet, you can use our telephone service. One of our employees will then take your information personally.
- To answer your questions (your e-mail address and telephone number, if applicable).
3. AUTOMATIC DATA COLLECTION VIA COOKIES
A cookie is a small text file that is stored in your browser’s buffer, and that helps the website function or permits us to analyse how you use the site. The next time you visit our website, your browser will read the cookie and transmit the information it contains back to the website or other component that installed the cookie in the first place.
This website uses two kinds of cookies:
- Session Cookies:
These are temporary cookies that remain in place only until you close your browser. They are necessary in order for some applications or functions on the site to work properly.
- Permanent or stored Cookies:
We may use stored cookies to make our site more user-friendly (e.g., to optimize navigation). These are cookies that remain in your browser’s cookies folder for a more extended time. The time depends on your Web browser’s settings. Stored cookies make it possible to transmit information to a Web server each time you visit a website.
We gather the following information automatically when your computer first accesses the altek International Ltd website:
- Your internet address (IP address), minus the last digit, so that your IP address cannot be located precisely
- Browser type and version
- Browser plug ins
- The website you came to us from (referrer URL)
- The operating system you are using
- Your language setting
- Your Internet service provider
- The date and time of your visit
- Your screen resolution
- Search words via which you found our site
These data are stored separately from any other data you may have provided to us. There is no linkage between these data and your other data; they are analysed for statistical purposes to help us optimize our website and our products and services. The data is deleted after they are analysed.
You can accept or block all cookies from all websites you visit by changing your Web browser settings. For example, if you use Internet Explorer Version 8.0, the procedure is this:
- Click “Tools” followed by “Internet Options.”
- Click the “Privacy” tab.
- Use the slider to choose the setting you prefer.
Please note that if you block cookies, some features on our website may be unavailable, and the site may not be fully functional. If you do not know how to change your browser’s settings, or how to delete cookies, please read your browser’s instructions.
4. SOCIAL NETWORKS
4.1 Social Media Icons
The pictured icons of e.g. Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram are only links to the corresponding social media pages. As a result, no data will be sent to the servers of the named providers, unless you are actively clicking on one of these links. In this case, the data protection regulations of the linked platforms are prevailing (after following the links).
If you are already logged in to one of these websites, it can assign your visit to our website directly to your user account, subject to the conditions of use of the registered website.
4.2 Facebook: The Facebook “Share” Button
We provide a Facebook button.
If you visit a page on our site and click the Facebook button, your browser will connect directly to the servers of the Facebook social network operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Avenue, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”). Facebook will then receive the information that your browser has gone to that particular page of our site, even if you have no Facebook account. That information (including your IP address) will be sent by your browser directly to a Facebook server in the USA and stored there.
If you are already logged into Facebook, Facebook can allocate your visit to our site directly to your Facebook account. If you click the Facebook button or input a comment, that information will likewise be sent directly to a Facebook server and stored there. The information will also be published on Facebook and displayed to your Facebook friends.
Facebook may use this information for advertising and market research, and to tailor the design of Facebook pages to users’ needs. For that purpose, Facebook prepares usage, interest and relationship profiles, for purposes such as analysing your use of our site in relation to the ads displayed to you through Facebook, notifying other Facebook users of your activities on our site, or providing other services associated with the use of Facebook.
If you do not want Facebook to store data that Facebook collects through our website in your Facebook account, do not click the Facebook button, or if you are already logged into Facebook, log out of Facebook before visiting our site.
4.3 twitter: The Twitter button
We provide a Twitter button.
If you visit a page on our site and click the Twitter button, your browser will connect directly to the services of the Twitter social network operated by Twitter Inc., 795 Folsom St., Suite 600, San Francisco, CA 94107, USA (“Twitter”).
If you click the Twitter button and use Twitter, or if you use the “Retweet” function, the websites you visit will be linked to your Twitter account and displayed to other users. Data will also be transmitted to Twitter for this purpose.
If you do not want Twitter to associate the data gathered through our website with your Twitter account, do not click the Twitter button, or if you are logged into Twitter, log out before visiting our site.
4.4 YouTube Plugin
YouTube clips are included on our website, so plug-ins are used by YouTube. Once you visit a page that has a clip attached to it, it will connect to YouTube’s servers. YouTube LLC is part of Google Inc., and is headquartered at: 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. The server will be told which page you visited, in which the plug-in is integrated. If you’re logged in to YouTube, YouTube will associate this information with your account. You can prevent this sharing of information by logging out of YouTube. For more information about YouTube’s collection and use of your data, please visit: https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/
4.5 Google Maps
Google Maps is integrated on our website, so plugins are used by Google Maps. Once you visit a page that has a map attached to it, it will connect to the Google LLC servers at 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. The server will be told which page you visited, in which the plug-in is integrated. If you are logged in to Google, Google assigns this information to your user account. You can prevent this information exchange by logging out of your Google Account. For more information about Google’s collection and use of your information, please visit: www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/
5. CONSENT AND REVOCATION
If you consent for us to use, process and transmit your personal data for marketing purposes (e.g. for an electronic newsletter or by sending offers, or for uses by our web analytics), you can revoke your consent at any time, with no particular requirements for form or notice, with effect for the future. If your data are used within the limits provided by law for such purposes as postal marketing campaigns, you may also revoke permission for those uses. In either case, please contact

To process your order, it may sometimes be necessary to share your personal data with third parties. For example, shipping carriers will be informed of your data to the extent needed in order to deliver your purchases.
Your personal data will also not be sold to third parties or shared with them for separate uses without your prior consent.
Data will be shared with government agencies or authorities only as mandatorily required by national law.
7. DURATION OF DATA STORAGE
Your personal data will be stored only as long as is necessary for us to provide our services, max. 10 years after your last activities. In some cases, we may be legally required to store data permanently.
