Web Analytics & Google Analytics
Our website uses functions of the web analytics service, Google Analytics. The provider is Google Inc., located at 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. For this purpose, cookies are used that allow an analysis of the use of the website by our users. The information generated thereby is transmitted to the server of the provider and stored there.
You can prevent this by setting up your browser so that no cookies are stored. We have a corresponding data processing contract with the provider. Your IP address is detected but pseudonymized immediately (e.g., by deleting the last 8 bits). As a result, only a rough localization is possible.
Google Analytics cookies are stored on the basis of article 6, paragraph 1, point F of the GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analyzing user behavior in order to optimize both its website and its advertising.
The data processing takes place on the basis of the legal regulations of section 96, paragraph 3 of the TKG as well as article 6, paragraph 1, point A (consent) and/or F (legitimate interest) of the GDPR.
Our concern in the sense of the GDPR (legitimate interest) is the improvement of our offers and our website. Since the privacy of our users is important to us, the user data is pseudonymized.
We may use third-party service providers to automate marketing actions in an attempt to nurture visitors with personalized and useful content based on visitor interactions with our website and past emails. You may request that we cease using your information for marketing purposes emailing us, marketing at formtechnologies.com, or by writing to 11325 North Community House Road, Suite 300, Charlotte, North Carolina, USA 28277.

Form Technologies’ GDPR Commitment
We’re committed to helping Form Technologies customers and users understand, and where applicable, comply with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The GDPR is the most comprehensive EU data privacy law in decades, and went into effect on May 25, 2018.
Besides strengthening and standardizing user data privacy across the EU nations, it introduces new or additional obligations on all organizations that handle EU citizens’ personal data, regardless of where the organizations are located.
To comply with E.U. data protection laws around international data transfer mechanisms, we self-certify under the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework and the Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework. These frameworks were developed to establish a way for companies to comply with data protection requirements when transferring personal data from the European Union and Switzerland to the United States.
Measures we have implemented include:
- Investments in our security infrastructure and certifications
- Updates to relevant contractual terms
- Commitment to continuously monitoring the guidance around GDPR compliance from privacy-related regulatory bodies, and update our product features and contractual commitments accordingly
