Privacy policy

We take the protection of your private data extremely seriously and would like you to feel at ease when visiting our website. The security of your personally identifiable information, such as your name, address, telephone number and email address, is our key concern that we take into account in our business processes. We run our Internet activities in line with the data protection and data security laws. Below you can find out which information we collate and how we deal with it. The liNear website may contain links to the websites of other service providers, in particular to the websites of liNear industrial partners. This privacy policy does not apply to these websites.

Personally identifiable information
We do not collate any personally identifiable information without your consent. You decide whether you want to pass this data on to us or not, for example during registration, the placing of an order, a download or a survey. Generally speaking, we use your personally identifiable information to answer your queries, to process your order or to provide you with access to special information or offers. In order to maintain customer relationships, it might also be necessary

– to save your personally identifiable information, process it and share it, e.g with industrial partners, so that we can react better to your wishes, or improve our products and services

– for us (or a third party who we have commissioned) to use this data to inform you about offers from liNear and its industrial partners that could benefit your company, or to carry out online surveys, which we use so that we can better deal with your requirements.

Of course, we respect that you might not want to share your personally identifiable information with us for the purposes of supporting our customer relations - in particular for direct marketing or market research. We will never sell your personally identifiable information to third parties, nor market it in any other way.

Information that is automatically collated and not personally identifiable
When you access our website, the only information that is automatically collated (unless you register etc.) is information that is not allocated to a specific person (e.g. information concerning your web browser and operating system; the website from which you came; the number of visitors, average time spent on the site, pages visited). liNear uses this information to calculate the appeal of our website and to improve its contents. When you visit one of our pages, we may save information on your computer in the form of a "cookie". This information will automatically recognise you during your next visit. Cookies allow us to adapt a webpage to suit your interests or to allow you to save your password so that you don't need to enter it every time you visit the website. If you generally reject the use of cookies, you can set up your web browser so that it either deletes cookies from your computer hard drive, blocks all cookies, or warns you before a cookie is saved.

liNear takes precautions to protect the data that we manage from accidental or wilful manipulation, loss, destruction or against being accessed by unauthorised persons.

Right to information
If you have any questions concerning how your personal data is handled, please contact one of our data protection officers who will assist you by providing you with information, listening to your comments or handling your complaints. If required, liNear will provide you with information concerning whether and which personal data concerning you is saved by liNear. This information will be provided immediately in writing in line with the applicable laws. If, despite our best efforts regarding the integrity and topicality of data, incorrect information is saved, we will amend this in accordance with your requests.
