Provision and use of our website
Use for information
You can find out about Brändle AG and our range of services on the website without telling us who you are. As with any connection to a web server, the server on which we have the website provided automatically logs and stores certain technical data for a short period of time. This includes the IP address and operating system of your device, the date and time of use and the type of browser you use to access the website.
We use web analysis services (currently including Google Analytics, Google Tag Manager, Google Data Studio, Google Search Console) to evaluate the use of the website and to obtain information for its optimisation. The web analysis services we use collect and store usage data using cookies. Before they are transmitted to a server outside Switzerland/EU/EEA, the requesting IP addresses are shortened. We therefore do not transmit any personal data to the provider of the web analysis services abroad.
We use advertising technologies from Google Ads, among others, on the website. This enables us to target people who visit our website with advertising that is relevant to them when they visit other websites. The advertisements are displayed on the websites you visit based on an analysis of your previous use of our website. For this purpose, the providers of the advertising technologies set cookies when you visit our website.
The social plugins used on the website enable you to recommend and share our content on social networks. You can recognise the social plugins on the website by the logos of the respective social network. When you interact with the social plugin, data is sent to the respective provider of the social network.
Resources from external websites
We include resources from external servers on our website. These contain visible content (including tweets, videos, music, images) and technical resources (including fonts, scripts, captchas).
The technical resources are used to improve the performance or security of our website. When these resources are accessed, the operator of the external servers learns your IP address and/or certain marginal data that are necessary for the use of the servers of the external operator.
You can instruct your browser not to accept cookies or to prompt you each time before a cookie is set. You can also delete cookies on your device by using the corresponding function of your browser. In addition, you have the option of informing us of your preferences regarding the acceptance of cookies via the cookie preferences tool used on the website.
Use of our social media pages
On our social media pages, you will find posts about current developments at Brändle AG and our range of services. The social media providers collect and analyse usage data, such as the number of visits and demographic information about visitors to our company pages.
We receive evaluations from the social media providers based on this data. These only contain aggregated or otherwise sufficiently anonymised data. Only the respective provider can identify you on the basis of the usage data collected. Therefore, please observe the data protection information of the respective provider.
