On the one hand, Bucher Hydraulics uses session cookies which are automatically erased when the user closes the WEBSITE and which enable the server to establish a stable connection to the user (so that the content of a shopping basket is not lost, for example) as long as he browses on the website. On the other hand, permanent cookies which are only erased after a period defined per WEBSITE are used. Permanent cookies allow saving certain settings (e.g. language) for several sessions or allow for an automated log-in. The user consents to the application of permanent cookies by way of using the WEBSITE and the respective functions (e.g. langue settings and automated log-in). The user may block the application of cookies on his browser or delete cookies there which may, however, impair the use of the WEBSITE.

In accordance with applicable law, Bucher Hydraulics may install coding in newsletters and other marketing email which allow it to determine if the recipient has opened an email or downloaded pictures contained in the email. However, the recipient may block this application in his/her email application. In any case the recipient consents to the application of this technology by way of receiving newsletters on other marketing related emails.

Should Bucher Hydraulics place advertisement of third parties on the WEBSITE (e.g. banners) or intend to place an own ad on the website of a third party, cookies from companies specializing in the use of such advertisement may be employed. Bucher Hydraulics will not disclose personal data to such companies, i.e. they shall only place a permanent cookie with users of the WEBSITE in order to recognize users and do so in the sole interest of Bucher Hydraulics.

The service provider knows the identity of the user who has registered with the service provider. In this case the processing of personal data will be the service provider's responsibility and data shall be processed according to the data protection policies of the service provider. The service provider will provide data on the use of the WEBSITE to Bucher Hydraulics.

6.5 Google Ads (formerly known as Google Adwords)

6.5.1 Google Ads Conversion 

Our website uses Google Ads Conversion in order to draw attention to our offers on external websites by means of advertising (so-called Google Ads). By analyzing the data, the success of the marketing campaign can be assessed. This feature ensures that only advertisements that may interest you are displayed.

These advertisements are provided by Google via so-called "ad servers". For this purpose, we use ad server cookies that are able to detect specific parameters to measure success, such as the frequency with which advertisements are shown or clicks by the user. Whenever our website is accessed via redirecting by a Google ad, Google Ads will save a cookie on your device. These cookies routinely expire after 30 days and are not used to identify you as a user. Together with this cookie, usually the unique cookie ID, quantity of ad Impressions per placement (frequency), last ad Impression (relevant for post-view conversions), and opt-out information are stored as values for analyses.

Via the cookies, Google is able to once again recognize your Internet browser. If a user visits specific web pages of an Ads client's website and the cookie saved on the user's computer has not expired yet, Google and the client are able to detect that the user clicked the ad and was redirected to this website. Consequently, cookies cannot be traced using the websites of Ads clients, since each Ads client is assigned a different cookie.

We do not collect and process any personal data in the specified advertisements. Google merely provides us with statistical assessments. Thanks to these analyses we are able to identify the advertisements that are most effective. We do not receive data gathered by using the advertisements beyond the described scope, which also rules out user identification on the basis of this information.

By means of the marketing tool used, your browser automatically establishes a direct connection to the Google server. We do not have any influence on the scope and further use of data that was gathered by Google via this tool , and consequently, wish to inform you according to the current information available to us: Via the integration process of Ads Conversion, Google is informed about the fact that you have accessed a web page of our website or clicked on one of our ads. If you are registered as a user of a Google service, Google is able to associate your visit with your account. Even if you are not registered as a Google user or you are not logged into your Google account, it is still possible for the provider to detect your IP address and store it.

6.5.2 Google Ads Remarketing

This website uses the remarketing feature within the context of the Google Ads service. By using the remarketing feature, we are able to display advertisements—based on the users' interests—on other websites in the Google advertising network (in the Google search, on YouTube, "Google ads", or on other websites) to users of our website. To this end, the users' interactions on our website are analyzed for, e.g., which offers were interesting for the user, with the aim of displaying targeted advertisements to the users on other websites after they have visited our website. For this purpose, Google stores a number in the browsers of users who accessed specific Google services or websites within the Google display network. The number of visits is recorded via the cookies. This number serves for unambiguous identification of a web browser on the corresponding end device and not for identification of a person. Personal data is not stored.
This is a method with which we wish to reach out to you again within 24 months. This application makes it possible to display our advertisements to you after your visit to our website over the course of your future Internet use. This is implemented via cookies saved in your browser which are used by Google to gather and analyze information about your consumer behavior on different websites. This is how Google can detect whenever you have visited our website previously. According to Google, data gathered in the course of remarketing is not used together with personal data which may be stored by Google. According to Google, remarketing uses pseudonymization.

6.5.4 Legal basis for data processing

6.6 Campaign Manager (formerly known as DoubleClick by Google)

This website also uses the Campaign Manager online marketing tool by Google. Campaign Manager uses cookies with the aim of displaying advertisements relevant to the users, improving the reports on the success of marketing campaigns, and avoiding the same advertisements being displayed to the user more than once. By means of a cookie ID, Google is able to recognize which advertisements are displayed in which browser and thus, avoid displaying the ads multiple times. Moreover, with the aid of cookie IDs, the Campaign Manager can gather so-called conversions, which are related to advertisement requests. This might be the case if a user views a Campaign Manager advertisement and later uses the same browser to access the website of the advertiser and purchases something via that website. According to Google, Campaign Manager cookies do not contain any personal information.

By means of the marketing tools used, your browser automatically establishes a direct connection to the Google server. We do not have any influence on the scope and further use of data that was gathered by Google via this tool , and consequently, wish to inform you according to the current information available to us: The integrated Campaign Manager provides Google with the information that you have accessed a relevant part of our website or that you have clicked one of our advertisements. If you are registered as a user of a Google service, Google is able to associate your visit with your account. Even if you are not registered as a Google user or you are not logged into your Google account, it is still possible for the provider to detect your IP address and store it.

Moreover, the Campaign Manager (DoubleClick Floodlight) cookies used help us to recognize whether you performed specific actions on our website after having accessed one of our display/video advertisements on Google or on another platform via Campaign Manager or clicked on one of those (Conversion Tracking). Campaign Manager uses this cookie to recognize the content with which you have interacted on our website with the aim of sending you targeted advertisements in the future.

The Google Tag Manager tool is a domain without cookies that does not gather any personal data. The tool itself triggers activation of other tags, which may potentially gather data. The Google Tag Manager does not access the data in any way. If deactivation was performed on a cookie or domain level, this remains in place for all tracking tags implemented by the Google Tag Manager.

  2. the processing was performed by means of automated processes.

In exercising this right, you also have the right to have your personal data transmitted directly from one controller to another, where technically feasible. In exercising this right, rights and freedom of others must not be affected adversely.

You have the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects concerning you or similarly significantly affects you in an adverse manner. This does not apply

  1. if the decision is necessary for entering into or the performance of a contract between you and the controller or if
  2. it is authorized by Union or member state law to which the controller is subject and these laws contain suitable measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms and legitimate interests, or
  3. if it is made based on your explicit consent.

However, these decisions must not be based on special categories of personal data referred to in Article 9(1) of the GDPR, unless Article 9(2)(a) or (g) of the GDPR apply and suitable measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms and legitimate interests are in place.

In the cases referred to in points (1) and (3), the controller must implement measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms and legitimate interests, which includes, at a minimum, obtaining the intervention of a person on the part of the controller, to express one's point of view and to contest the decision.
