Which website tracking tools does Camelot use and how can you limit the tracking function?

Google Analytics 4:

If you have given your consent, this website uses Google Analytics 4, a web analytics service provided by Google LLC. The controller for users in the EU/EEA and Switzerland is Google Ireland Limited, Google Building Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland (“Google”).

Google Analytics uses cookies that enable us to analyse your use of our website. The information collected by the cookies about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

In Google Analytics 4, the anonymisation of IP addresses is activated by default. Due to IP anonymisation, your IP address will be truncated by Google within 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 truncated there. According to Google, the IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.

During your visit to the website, your user behaviour is recorded in the form of “events”. For example: Page views, First visit to the website, Start of the session, Websites visited, Your approximate location (region), Date and time of the visit, Your IP address (in truncated form)

Technical information about your browser and the end devices you use (e.g. language setting, screen resolution).

The data may be shared with companies affiliated with Google.

For the USA, the European Commission adopted its adequacy decision on 10 July 2023. Google LLC is certified under the EU-US Privacy Framework. Since Google servers are distributed worldwide and a transfer to third countries (for example to Singapore) cannot be completely ruled out, we have also concluded the EU standard contractual clauses with the provider.

The data sent by us and linked to cookies is automatically deleted after 2. The legal basis for this data processing is your consent in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a GDPR and § 25 para. 1 sentence 1 TTDSG.

You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future by accessing the cookie settings and changing your selection there.

You can also prevent the storage of cookies from the outset by configuring your browser software accordingly. However, if you configure your browser to reject all cookies, this may restrict the functionality of this and other websites.

How does CAMELOT use personal data for marketing purposes?

The majority of the personal data we collect and use for marketing purposes relates to individual employees of our customers with whom we maintain an existing business relationship. In addition, we may obtain contact information from public sources, including content published on public and social media websites, to establish initial contact with a relevant person at a customer or other company.

In accordance with applicable marketing regulations, we send promotional emails to individuals at our customers’ premises or at those of other companies with whom we intend to establish or maintain a business relationship. For existing business relationships, we use the mailing tool Hubspot. Our targeted e-mail messages (e.g., as part of a mailing campaign for trade fairs, forums, webinars, business breakfasts) contain cookies and similar technologies that allow us to find out whether you have opened an e-mail message we have sent.

When you click on a link in a marketing e-mail sent by CAMELOT, we use a cookie to record which pages were viewed, which hyperlinks were clicked and what content was downloaded from our websites.

Where do we store your data?

Like all large companies, Camelot uses a Customer Relationship Management (CRM) database technology to manage and track our marketing efforts. Our CRM databases contain personal data of individuals at our customers and other companies with whom we already have a business relationship or wish to establish one. Personal data used for these purposes includes relevant business information, such as contact information, publicly available information, your responses to targeted e-mails (including web activity to follow the links contained in our e-mails) and other business information provided by Camelot employees based on their personal interaction with you. If you wish to be excluded from the CRM databases, please contact our Privacy Office.

What rights do you have to restrict / stop marketing communication?

You may exercise your right to opt-out of marketing communications with you by ticking certain boxes on the forms we use to collect your personal data or by using the opt-out mechanism in the emails we send to you. You may also opt out of marketing communications or have your personal data removed from our Customer Relationship Management (CRM) database at any time. Please contact dataprivacy@camelot-mc.com for this purpose.

In these cases, we will retain a minimum of personal data to record that you have been removed from marketing communications to prevent you from being contacted again.
