In some areas, SMC uses so-called cookies. These enable certain functions and the provision of individual services. Some of the cookies used by SMC are erased after the end of your browser session, i.e. after you close the browser window (session cookies). Other cookies remain on the user’s terminal and enable SMC to recognize the user’s browser the next time they visit the SMC Website (persistent cookies).
Users can set their browsers in such a way that they are informed about the setting of cookies and can then decide on a case-by-case basis whether to accept them or to exclude the acceptance of cookies, either generally or in certain cases. In the case of non-acceptance, the functionality of the SMC Website and the use of the software may be limited.
Use of Google Analytics
This Website uses Google Analytics, a Web analysis service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google uses this information to evaluate how you use the Website and generate reports on the Website activities.
Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies,” i.e. text files that are saved on your computer and enable an analysis of how you use the Website.
The information generated by the cookie concerning your use of this Website is generally transferred to a Google server in the U.S. for storage. However, if IP anonymization is activated on this Website, Google will first shorten your IP address within EU member states or in other states that are signatories to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. The full IP address is only transferred to a Google server in the U.S. and shortened there in exceptional cases.
The IP address transferred by your browser within the scope of Google Analytics will not be associated with any other data held by Google.
We shall take the appropriate, technical and organizational measures to ensure the security of any data you have disclosed. Such data will exclusively be transmitted in encrypted form (encryption technology: Secure Socket Layer).
