The protection of your personal information is extremely important to us . Below we explain our data protection using our electronic media.
This website is operated by HOWADO GmbH.
When using our services, ecomparo (hereinafter referred to as "Provider") asks you at different positions for personal data. The data collected will be kept strictly confidential and used solely for the purpose disclosed to you in each case. Due to the various choices you determine what data is provided by you, and how it can be used by us. Your data is collected and processed with regards to legal regulations.
In the following, we name which personal information we collect, how we protect your data and how we use it.
While you visit ecomparo, our web server raises general technical information such as browser type, screen size, operating system used, the IP address of your machine which websites you have visited with us and the date and time of your visit in order to operate the website.
You can use ecomparo any time without registration or login. Personal data is only collected if you provide it voluntarily (for example when registering to the newsletter). Personal information is only collected and processed when it is necessary to provide you with information, pay schedules, services, or to supply other products. Non-anonymized personal data to third parties only is only given when this is necessary in individual cases for the enforcement of rights of provider rights, especially due payment claims against delinquent customers or it is required by law. In connection with your access data ist stored on our servers for security purposes (eg IP address, date, time and pages). The statistical analysis of the data remains anonymous.
We store IP addresses for a period of up to seven days. The storage is done for reasons of data security to ensure the stability and reliability of our system. We point out that data transmission over the Internet (eg communication by e-mail) is vulnerable. A complete protection of data against unauthorized access by third parties is not possible.
Disclosure of personal information to third parties
We use your personal information in case of product orders and services only within the company and our affiliates for service fulfillment. Any processing of your personal data is only based on your explicit consent, when the reach of legal permission is exceeded.

You should check your posts before publishing to ensure that they do not contain information that is not meant for the public.
