Dear Website Visitor:
The protection of your privacy is a very serious concern to the NOVOMATIC Group therefore we want you to be able to visit our web pages without being concerned about security issues. It is generally possible to use our website without the disclosure of personal data. The following Privacy Statement will provide you with an overview of how the NOVOMATIC Group guarantees the protection of your privacy, the type of data being collected as well as its main purpose.
2 DATA PROCESSING ON OUR WEBSITE
• Request (name of the requested data file) (e.g. www.beispiel.de/index.html) including parameters (e. g. www.novomatic.com/de/search?keyword=verantwortung)
• Browser type and version (e.g. Internet Explorer 6.0)
• Browser language (e.g. German)
• Operating system used (e.g. Windows XP)
• Internal resolution of your browser window
• Screen resolution
• Installed plugins (Java, Flash, Real, Quicktime, …)
• Cookies on/off
• Color bit depth
• Referrer URL (the previously visited website including parameters, e.g. search items in search engines, ...)
• IP address to identify country of origin. The IP address itself is only used for geographical allocation and to identify the provider, and is immediately deleted again afterwards.
• Time and date of accessing
Any personal details you have entered in one of our forms, either to request information, apply for a job or get in touch with us, are also saved. The NOVOMATIC Group will use your personal data exclusively in accordance with the relevant laws and regulations.
3 IP ADDRESS
The IP address is transmitted on every server request to let the server know where the response has to be sent. Your Internet Service Provider (ISP) gives you an IP address as soon as you connect to the Internet, and the ISP can retrace which IP address was assigned to which of its customers at any given time. For as long as the IP address is saved, it is theoretically possible to identify the owner of the Internet connection via the ISP. For this reason, we and our statistics providers do not save the IP address permanently but only temporarily for session recognition and for security reasons (for example to ward off hacker attacks). The IP address is then immediately deleted, so that any collected data are made anonymous and it is no longer possible to identify the user, not even via the ISP.
4.1 The Purpose of Cookies
To allow you to use the NOVOMATIC Group’s website without any restrictions, we use what are referred to as session cookies.

These cookies are unable to save any other kind of data. Placing session cookies on your computer does not enable us to see the files on your computer.
After you conclude your session, i.e. after you close your browser window, the session cookies are automatically deleted.
You need to activate session cookies to be able to use website services which require authentication.
