Data Protection at ORBIS AG

It is therefore a matter of course for us that your personal data is collected, processed, saved and used in compliance with data protection regulations when you visit our website. We only use your personal data within the ORBIS Group for purposes of supporting and expanding our business relationships with you to the extent necessary. Your personal data is only passed on to third parties outside of the ORBIS Group in line with legal regulations and with your consent, unless dissemination of such data is also legally permissible without your consent. External third parties are involved in designing and operating our website on our behalf. These third parties only have access to your personal data within the context of these activities. Any use of your data by the same service providers for any other purposes is excluded. The service providers commissioned by us undertake to treat your personal data confidentially and to observe the legal data protection regulations. Our website may contain links to websites operated by third-party providers to whom this data privacy policy does not apply. ORBIS AG is not responsible for the content of any website accessed by means of such a link or for their data protection arrangements.

Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer’s hard drive when you call up a website – if your browser settings permit this. Cookies are used to avoid repeatedly displaying information and to optimize your computer system with respect to representation of information. They either only contain a reference to the fact that particular information has already been viewed once before or contain data to technically optimize your computer system. If you do not want to accept these cookies, you can prevent the placement of cookies by making relevant settings in your browser. Generally speaking, you do not suffer any further disadvantages as a result.
