Data privacy policy


The protection of your personal data is important to us. We use technical and organizational measures to ensure that your data is protected. For more information, see the following explanation of which information is saved when you visit our website.

Saving your visitor data

Like many websites, when you visit our website, we save your IP address (where permissable by law), along with the date, time, pages visited, the volume of any data transferred, and the site used to navigate to our website. You can change the settings in your browser to stop cookies from being used and data being recorded. If you do so, you need to be aware that you might lose some functionality of this website.

Sending contact information to us

When you fill out a form to contact us, we will save the personal data that you enter. This data will only be used for the purpose for which you gave us authorization when you contacted us. It will not be used for any other purposes.

Your data is entered on a voluntary basis and with your consent. You consent to us contacting you using the communication channels (e-mail, telephone) you specified, so that we can answer your inquiry.

You may revoke your consent at any time in the future. Please use the contact form to notify us.


When you subscribe to our newsletter, we will collect your e-mail address. The newsletter is sent by the external service provider, Exact Target. The newsletter will usually be sent once a month (although we may send occasional special announcements between regular newsletters) and will only include information and articles on Elektrobit Automotive products and services, and no other advertisements.

You give consent using a double opt-in and always have a link to unsubscribe in each e-mail. You can also unsubscribe by notifying us using our website contact form. If you unsubscribe, we will keep your data on a blocked list to ensure that you do not receive any more newsletters. You can resubscribe at any time.
