We have taken significant steps to ensure that your data is protected. The personal data you enter on HTML pages (contact forms) and what we store are transmitted in an encrypted form (TLS) through the public data network and stored and otherwise processed.
This Privacy notice applies to all collected and processed data. We do not take responsibility for the operation of external internet sites. By skipping websites embedded in the content of the Embrions website, we encourage you to review the privacy policies of all related websites.
Cookies are small text files that are stored locally on your system. They do not cause any threat, do not contain viruses and are simply used to retrieve information. Cookies allow us to recognize your preferences, for example, allowing you to customize the website and navigate it to your needs. If you refuse to allow cookies (this setting is available in your browser), you can still use our website (although its functionality may be limited).
11. Web analytics
Our website uses technology offered by Google Analytics to collect and store data in a pseudonymed form. They are used for marketing purposes and to optimize our website. Using pseudonyms, use this information to create user profiles. Data is not used to personally identify visitors to this website and is not combined with data that is related to the owner’s pseudonym.
12. Social networking plugins
The Embrions website may occasionally use third-party content. These can be Youtube videos, RSS feeds or graphical images on other pages, or social buttons such as Facebook sharing button.
If you are on the Embrions website that has third-party content, you can connect to the social network. With it, the button content can be transmitted to your browser and thus integrated into the website. This means that the service provider always receives the information you requested from the Embrions website. It does not matter whether you are a social network member or you have not entered such a social networking system. In addition, regardless of whether you interact with the content you contribute, the social network automatically collects information. In this case, the following information may be broadcast: IP address, browser and operating system information, screen resolution, browser plug-ins installed (e.g. Adobe Flash Player), visitor’s originating (if followed by the link), and current page URL.
If you have entered the social networking system while you use the Embrions website, the information associated with the website you are calling can be linked to and stored by your social network member. If you are a member of the social network and do not want this kind of data transfer, you must leave the social networking system before visiting the Embrions website.
If you use one of the plugins (for example, you use the commenting option or the sharing button), the service provider can link the website to your profile directly. These data are sent directly to the social network and stored there. In addition, the relevant information is published on the respective social networks and is visible to your contacts.
Embrions can not affect the amount of data accumulated by social networks. The nature, scope and purpose of the data collection, information about further processing of data and your rights in relation to these issues, as well as the possibilities for protecting your privacy are described in the data protection policies of the relevant social network.
You can block social networking plug-ins by using attachments in your browser and thus preventing data transfer.
