Welcome to our website www.stryker.de. We look forward to your interest in our company. In order to ensure that you have a good feeling regarding the treatment of your personal data we would like to make it perfectly clear for you what happens to any data and what security measures we take. We will also inform you about your statutory rights regarding the processing of this data.
The collection, processing and utilisation of personal data
Personal data is only collected if you provide it for us voluntarily (e.g. when registering for our newsletter). Otherwise no personal data is collected. Any processing of your personal data that exceeds the scope permitted by law can only take place with your express permission.
When registering for our newsletter you provide us with your e-mail address and, optionally, other data. We only use this information to send you the newsletter. We store the data you provide while registering for the newsletter until you cancel receipt of our newsletter. Cancellation is possible at any time using the link provided in the newsletter or by sending us an appropriate message. Your cancellation also instructs us to stop using your e-mail address.
The use of Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service from Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called cookies, text files that are stored on your computer and enable analysis of the use of this website. The information on your use of this website generated by the cookie is generally transferred to a Google server in the USA and saved there. Google will shorten your IP address before saving it, however, in member states of the EU or in other signatory countries in the European Economic Area if you activate IP anonymisation on this website. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. The operator of this website has authorised Google to utilise this information to evaluate your use of this website so that reports can be compiled about website activities and to provide the website operator with further services related to website and internet use. Google does not combine the IP address transferred from your browser for Google Analytics with any other data. You can prevent the saving of cookies by making an appropriate setting in your browser software; though in this case it is possible that not all the functions of this website will be completely available for use. In addition, you can prevent the data generated by the cookie and data related to your use of the website (including your IP address) from being collected by Google and its processing of this by downloading and installing this browser plugin. In view of the discussion regarding the use of analysing tools with complete IP addresses, we would like to clarify that this website uses Google Analytics with the extension ‘_anonymizeIp()’ and thus IP addresses are only processed in shortened form to rule out any chance of direct identification of persons. In the case of browsers on mobile devices please click on this link to prevent anonymised collection by Google Analytics for your browser on this website in future by means of so-called ‘opt-out cookies’.
