Website Privacy
Online identifiers such as internet protocol addresses, cookie identifiers or other identifiers can be used to gather information about natural persons, as mentioned in the EU General Data Protection Regulation, GDPR. This may in some cases leave traces which, when combined with unique identifiers and other information received, may be used to create profiles of the natural persons and identify them.

Not all cookies can be used to identify users, but the majority will be subject to the GDPR.

Website Visitors
Like most website operators, Gearkassen collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Gearkassen’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how Gearkassen’s visitors use its website. From time to time, Gearkassen may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

Gearkassen also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. Gearkassen does not use such information to identify its visitors, however, and does not disclose such information, other than under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information, as described below.

Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to Gearkassen’s websites choose to interact with Gearkassen in ways that require Gearkassen to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that Gearkassen gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. Gearkassen does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

Aggregated Statistics
Gearkassen discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on Gearkassen’s behalf or to provide services available at Gearkassen’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using Gearkassen’s website, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. Gearkassen will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, Gearkassen discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when Gearkassen believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of Gearkassen, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an Gearkassen website and have supplied your email address, Gearkassen may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with Gearkassen and our products. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. Gearkassen takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

Website Privacy Policy Changes
Although most changes are likely to be minor, Gearkassen may change its Website Privacy Policy from time to time, and in Gearkassen sole discretion. Gearkassen encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Website Privacy Policy. Continued use of this site after any change in this Website Privacy Policy will constitute your acceptance of such change.

Local and Marketing
Marketing cookies is used to track visitors on our webpage. It enables Gearkassen to display more relevant ads for
the engaged user, and thus more valuable for the publisher and advertiser.

Google Analytics primarily uses first-party cookies to report visitors (also called “users”) interactions on Google Analytics customers websites. As a user, you can disable cookies or delete a particular cookie.

Google Analytics also supports an optional browser extension, which – when installed and enabled – disables Google Analytics measurement on all sites visited by the user. Note! This add-on only disables Google Analytics measurement.
