Cookies help to identify account users clearly and optimise their web site navigation.

The information generated by the cookie about the use of this website will usually be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. In the event of IP anonymisation on this web site, visitor’s IP address will be shortened beforehand by Google within the countries being members of the European Union or in other contractual states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area.

In exceptional cases only will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the U.S. and shortened there. Google shall use such information to evaluate the use of the web site, to set up reports on web site activities for web site operators and to provide further services related to web site use and Internet use.

7. Social Plug-ins
On this web site, PB Swiss Tools AG uses so-called social plug-ins, e.g. from YouTube, Google, LinkedIn etc. with the logo of each provider.

When accessing a web page with such social plug-ins, a direct link is established between the visitor’s computer’s browser to the provider’s computer.

The contents of the plug-in is transmitted directly to the visitor’s computer by the offering provider and interlinked by the browser in the Internet page. The provider thereby obtains the information that the corresponding web site was accessed. When simultaneously logging in, the corresponding provider can also attribute visitor’s web site access to visitor’s profile.

If you interact with the plug-ins by, e.g. clicking on a “like” button or give a comment, corresponding information will be transmitted by visitor’s browser directly to the provider and stored there. In this way, data may later be attributed to a profile.

Should visitor want to avoid this, visitor must log out of the web site of the corresponding social plug-in provider.

PB Swiss Tools AG informs that the company has no knowledge whatsoever on the contents of data transmitted and does not know by which way such date is used by any provider.
