Privacy policy

We are glad that you have visited the homepage of Alber GmbH. We want to inform you about the full range of what we offer with our current product information and service offers. An important topic for the users of web sites is data security. This also includes the transparent handling of the collection and use of user data that we collect for statistical purposes. In the last resort, we want to be able to further improve what we are offering to you.

The collection, processing and use of your data is of course done only to the extent that is permissible by law, and you can find comprehensive information on the relevant regulations under , for example.

Which data is collected?
Each time our Internet pages are accessed, data is recorded in a log file by this

Is personal data collected and kept?
Your name, address, telephone number or e-mail address are not collected unless you give these details voluntarily, for example, as part of the registration that you wish to make, an enquiry, or the ordering of information material.

How is personal data used?
If you have made personal data available to us, we use this solely to meet your wishes and requirements, such as the administration of our newsletter or to answer your query. 

We neither pass on your personal data to third parties nor sell it, and we do not make it available to anyone else unless that should be necessary for the purpose of fulfilling the contract. For example, with orders it can become necessary for us to pass on your address and ordering data to our certified medical products specialist dealers, primarily for billing purposes. This can only be done if you have permitted this beforehand. 

You have the right to revoke (withdraw) this permission at any time with effect for the future.

Security information
We have made great efforts to take all the necessary technical and organisational measures to ensure that your personal data is stored in such a way that it is not available to either third parties or the general public. If you wish to contact us by e-mail, we would like to point out that it is inherently not possible to fully guarantee the confidentiality of information sent by this communication route. We therefore recommend that you only send confidential information by regular mail.

When an access is made to our web pages, information that is generated automatically—and hence not the information from a registration—is collected, this being information that cannot be associated with a particular person (for example, the Internet browser or operating system used; the domain names of web sites from which an access had been made via a web link; the number of visits; the average time spent visiting; the pages that were called up). We use this information to constantly improve our Internet presence.

When you visit our Internet pages, the information that is requested by us is stored on your computer in the form of so-called “cookies”. Among other things, cookies make it possible for your computer to be recognised again automatically when you visit our homepage the next time and to adapt a web site to your wishes or to store your password in such a way that you do not need to input it each time.

If you do not want this to be done, simply set your Internet browser for one of the following options: to delete cookies from your computer hard disk, to block all cookies, or to warn you before a cookie is saved.

Links and banner
In order to improve the information that we offer, on our web site you can find links that take you to third-party web sites. Alber GmbH has no influence on the content and design of these pages. The guarantees of this data security statement do not apply there.

If you leave our web site by following a link or by mouse-clicking on the banner advertising and so get to web pages that are not ours, it can happen that cookies are set if you click on the target page. We are not legally responsible for these cookies. Please compare the data security explanations concerning the use of such cookies and the information that is stored on them by our advertising partners.
