As the website operator or website provider, we collect data on access to the website in accordance with our legitimate interests (see Art. 6(1)(f) of the GDPR) and store these on the website server as server log files. The following data are logged in this manner:
+ websites visited
+ date and time when the site was accessed
+ amount of data sent in bytes

COLLECTION AND PROCESSING OF PERSONAL DATA
Syntech Plastics only collects, uses and passes on your personal data if this is legally permitted or you have given your consent to data collection. Personal data is considered to be any information that is used to personally identify you and can be traced back to you e.g. your name, email address and telephone number.
You can visit this website without providing personal data. However, to improve our online offering, we store data concerning your access to this website (without you being identified personally). These access data include files you have requested and the name of your internet provider. Data are anonymised and therefore cannot be traced back to you personally.
GUIDELINES FOR COMMENTS AND POSTS
Your IP address is stored whenever you add a post or comment to this website. This is done to protect our legitimate interests as described in Art. 6(1)(f) of the GDPR and provides us with protection as a web operator, as we may be prosecuted for any comments infringing the law in force, and therefore have an interest in identifying the author of comments or posts.
IP anonymisation is used on this website. Users’ IP addresses are truncated within EU and EEA Member States and other states party to the EEA agreement. Only in exceptional circumstances will IP addresses be initially sent untruncated to a Google server in the United States and truncated there. Such truncation prevents you from being identified by your IP address. Users’ IP addresses provided by their browsers are not combined with other data stored by Google.
Within the scope of the order data processing agreement that we as the website operator have entered into with Google Inc., Google Inc. uses the collected information to analyse website use and website activity and provides services in connection with internet use.
Data collected by Google on our behalf are used to analyse individuals’ use of our online offering, e.g. by generating reports on activity on the website, with a view to improving our online offering.
You can prevent cookies from being stored on your device by changing your browser settings. If your browser does not allow any cookies, there is no guarantee that you will have unlimited access to all features of this website.
Moreover, using a browser plugin, you can prevent information collected by cookies (including your IP address) from being sent to and used by Google Inc. You can access this plugin using the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en-GB
Alternatively, by clicking on this link (IMPORTANT: insert opt-out link), you can prevent Google Analytics from collecting data relating to you within this website. By clicking on the above link, you can download an opt-out cookie. Your browser must therefore fundamentally allow the storage of cookies in order to do this. If you regularly delete your cookies, you will need to click on the link every time you visit this website.
