Information on data protection

The protection of personal data such as your name, address, telephone number and e-mail address is of utmost importance to us. In the following sections, we explain what information we might collect and how we use it.


Suter Industries takes precautions to ensure the safety of your personal data. Your data will be meticulously protected against loss, destruction, tampering, manipulation and unauthorized access or unauthorized disclosure.

E-mail Marketing

We expressly distance ourselves from the distribution of unwanted advertising via e-mail (spam).

Personal data

We do not collect any personal data via our website without your consent. You alone decide whether you wish to disclose this data to us, such as for contact purposes. We require your personal data in order to respond to your enquiry, to process your order or to give you access to special information or offers. We will not sell your personal data to third parties or market it otherwise.

You can revoke your approval for the collection, processing and use of your personal data at any time.


What are cookies?

Cookies are small text files which are temporarily stored on your computer when you visit a website. Cookies enable us to recognize a visitor (device) and save their settings. They facilitate efficient navigation from page to page and enhance the visitor’s experience of our website.

Why do we use cookies?

We want to understand how visitors use our website so that we can continually improve the quality of our services. To this end we use web analytics programs such as Google Analytics (see subsequent explanations). These services count the number of visitors to our site and tell us things about their behavior – such as identifying the search engine keywords that led the user to the site (in connection with another Google product, the Search Console) or how long the user remained on the site. For this purpose, we place a “first party analytics cookie” on your computer.

How can you limit cookies on your device?

In general, you can reject cookies via your browser or adjust the settings to display a notification whenever a cookie is to be saved. In addition, you can delete cookies that have already been saved in your browser.

If you wish to limit or block saved cookies on your device, you can do so via the browser settings. Detailed assistance and information can be found in the help function of your browser.

Web statistics – Google Analytics

The following information comes from Google itself. We have revised and added to the text for enhanced comprehensibility.

We use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, text files which are stored on your computer and which enable an analysis of your use of the website.

The information generated by the cookie on your use of this website is normally transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

As we have activated IP anonymization on our website, your IP address will be shortened by Google beforehand within the member states of the European Union or in other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.

Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there.

On behalf of the owner of this website, Google will use this information for evaluating your usage of the website in order to put together reports on website activities, and to provide further services associated with website usage and Internet usage with respect to the website owner.

The IP address submitted from your browser within the framework of Google Analytics will not be merged with other data from Google. You can prevent the storage of cookies by using an appropriate setting of your browser software (as already mentioned above).

Data protection statement for the use of Google Analytics Remarketing

Our websites also use retargeting technologies offered by Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA). This makes it possible to address visitors to our website with targeted, personalized advertising relating to their interests. The presentation of this advertising occurs by way of a cookie-based analysis of previous web use and surfing behavior. To our knowledge, this takes place without any personal data being stored. For this process, a cookie is stored to collect anonymized data regarding the interests of the user and on this basis to individually adjust advertising to fit to this collected information. These cookies are small text files stored on your computer or mobile device.

You can permanently block the use of cookies for retargeting by deactivating interest-based advertising by Google with this setting: https://www.google.com/settings/u/0/ads/authenticated?hl=de

Further information and privacy regulations can be found in the privacy policy of Google at http://www.google.com/policies/technologies/ads/

Online access and data management

We also hereby inform you about the options for objecting to the collection of data for advertising purposes on the websites aboutads.info/choices/ and youronlinechoices.com (within Europe).

Legal basis of the General Data Protection Regulation

In accordance with the provisions of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) that took effect on 25 May 2018, we inform you that consent for the sending of e-mail addresses is governed by Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a, 7 GDPR and § 7 (2) no. 3, and (3) of the Unfair Competition Act (UCA).
