Privacy Policy

Protecting personal data is an important concern for E.ON Verwaltungs SE.

E.ON Verwaltungs SE processes personal data collected when visiting our webpages in accordance with the Federal Republic of Germany’s legislation regarding data privacy and data security. This Data Privacy Statement provides you with information on how E.ON Verwaltungs SE uses data collected during your visit to the E.ON Verwaltungs SE website.

Collection and Processing of Personal Data

Personal data is information that identifies you, such as your name, e-mail address or postal address. Data of this nature will only be saved if you make it available to E.ON Verwaltungs SE, e.g. when ordering informational materials, subscribing to e-mail newsletters, applying to a job online or taking part in a survey or sweepstakes.

Use and Transmission of Personal Data

In general, E.ON uses your personal data to answer your queries, process your orders or provide you with access to special offers or information. In order to do this, it may be necessary for E.ON to pass on your data to other group companies or external service providers for further data processing. E.ON will not sell your personal data to a third party or otherwise make personal data available for sale.

Data transmission to third countries will only occur within the framework of administration and operation of IT systems and only insofar as a) the data transmission is fundamentally permissible and b) the specific requisites for transfer to a third country have been met; in particular, the data importer must guarantee an acceptable level of data protection in accordance with EU standard contractual clauses for the transmission of personal data to order processing organizations in third countries. The provisions of the German Federal Data Protection Act and the Telemedia Act constitute the basis for this.

Freedom of Choice

You control the information you provide to E.ON Verwaltungs SE. If you choose not to transfer any information, then you may be unable to access some areas of the E.ON Verwaltungs SE website. Users of the service for press releases and ad hoc notifications can unsubscribe from these communication services at any time on the ‘Info-Service/E-Mail’ page; your data will be deleted immediately in this case. If your personal information changes (e.g. zip code, e-mail or postal address), you can also notify E.ON Verwaltungs SE via e-mail to  info@eon.com in order to correct or update this information.

Automatically Collected Data

When you access the E.ON Verwaltungs SE website, general information is collected automatically (i.e. without a registration process) that cannot be correlated a single person. Automatic recording occurs via

  • Truncated, and therefore anonymized, IP address. Truncation bars the possibility of correlation to an individual person,

  • The last website you visited (referrer),

  • The pages you have visited on the E.ON Verwaltungs SE website,

  • The names of accessed files,

  • The date and time of access,

  • Your PC"s operating system and browser version
Cookie & Retargeting

The cookie allows us to collect and store anonymous information such as: device type, operating system, browser version, geographic location, URLs on which our advertisements are displayed, or facts about interactions with advertisements (such as number of clicks or views) along with a time stamp of the interaction. For the retargeting e.g. a device type is recognized which allows us to serve advertisements that are potentially more relevant.

It does not collect personal information, or any information which would allow us to identify a person. This cookie disappears after 60 days of no interaction, unless deleted by the user. If the user revisits the site or views an advertisement during the 60 day period, then the cookie’s lifespan will reset to a further 60 days.

Under http://site.adform.com/privacy-policy you find further information and the ability to deactivate the Cookies is offered.

You may refuse the storage of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings in your browser; however, please note that if you do so, you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website.

Use of IP address

Every computer and device connected to the Internet is assigned a unique number known as an Internet protocol (IP) address. Since these numbers are usually assigned in country-based blocks, an IP address can often be used to identify the country, state, and city from which a computer is connecting to the Internet. Google Analytics collects the IP address of website visitors in order to provide website owners a sense of where in the world their visitors come from. This method is known as IP geotargeting.

Google Analytics does not report the actual IP address information to Google Analytics customers. Additionally, using a method known as IP masking, website owners that use Google Analytics have the option to tell Google Analytics to only use a portion of the IP address, rather than the entire IP address, for geotargeting. Whether or not website owners use Google Analytics, they have access to IP addresses for visitors to their sites.

Cookies

The website  www.energyoftomorrow.de uses co-called session cookies to offer users more comfort. For example, session-cookies make it possible for visitors to E.ON websites to complete a brochure request without having to re-enter their own data even after interrupting the process by visiting another page. There is also a session cookie used for web analytics.

A permanent cookie records whether they decline or participate so that the request is not shown to them again at a later point in time.
