We are pleased that you are visiting the website www.buildcree.com and thank you for your interest in our company.
CREE GmbH attaches great importance to the protection of your personal data. We treat the data entrusted to us as strictly confidential and handle it responsibly. We therefore inform you in accordance with the relevant data protection provisions of the General Data Protection Regulation (EUDATAP) and the Data Protection Act.
We collect information from you directly from your input and automatically through the technologies of the services.
The Service automatically collects certain information relating to your use of the Service for the purposes of data security and user-friendliness:
CREE uses in the browser so-called “session” cookies and web beacons. Cookies are small files with configuration settings that help CREE determine the frequency and type of use of our website. Cookies are also used to implement certain user functions. CREE does not collect any personal data via cookies and web beacons. In addition, use of CREE’s website is also possible without cookies. CREE points out, however, that in this case not all functions of this website may be fully usable.
With the so-called “third party cookies”, i.e. cookies from third party providers such as Google Inc., you will also find a link to the latest version of their data protection provisions known to us.
On our website we use videos of YouTube LLC, a company of Google Inc. Here we use the option ” – extended data protection mode -” provided by YouTube. When you access a page that has an embedded video, it connects to the YouTube servers and displays the content on the website by notifying your browser. According to YouTube, in ” – extended privacy mode -” only data is transmitted to the YouTube server, especially which of our websites you visited when you watch the video. If you are logged in to YouTube at the same time, this information will be associated with your YouTube account. You can prevent this by logging out of your member account before visiting our website. For more information about YouTube’s privacy practices, visit the following link: policies.google.com.
There are several ways to manage cookies. The help button on the toolbars of most browsers shows you how to stop accepting cookies, how to be notified when a new cookie is set and how to block cookies. If you block cookies, you may not be able to register, log in or make full use of the services.
We use the “visitor action pixel” of Facebook Inc. on our website. This allows users’ behaviour to be tracked after they have been redirected to the provider’s website by clicking on a Facebook ad. This process is designed to evaluate the effectiveness of Facebook ads for statistical and market research purposes and may help to optimize future advertising efforts. The data collected is anonymous to us, so it does not give us any indication of the identity of the users. However, Facebook stores and processes the data so that a connection to the respective user profile is possible and Facebook can use the data for its own advertising purposes in accordance with the Facebook Data Usage Guidelines (https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/). You can allow Facebook and its partners to serve ads on and off Facebook. A cookie may also be stored on your computer for these purposes. Consent to the use of the visitor action pixel may only be given by users who are older than 13 years of age. If you are younger, please ask your legal guardian for permission. You can revoke your consent here: www.aboutads.info
