We are deeply committed to protecting personal data of our visitors and treating it confidentially. We are therefore explaining below what information we collect and how we handle it. 

Information Collection, Use, and Sharing

Information Collection, Use, and Sharing

We are the sole owners of the information collected on this site. We only have access to/collect information that you voluntarily give us via email or other direct contact from you. We will not sell or rent this information to anyone.

We will use your information to respond to you, regarding the reason you contacted us. We will not share your information with any third party outside of our organization, other than as necessary to fulfil your request, e.g. to ship an order.

Transfer to third parties

Transfer to third parties

Shure Europe GmbH will not transfer collected data to third parties, especially it will not be sold, hired out or exchanged. We will transfer such data to the required extent only if we use subcontractors or agents who need that data for providing the services requested by you. In this case, we will place an obligation on our partners to treat data confidentially under the law and to delete it as soon as it is no longer needed. We hope you will understand, however, that we cannot monitor compliance with this obligation in every respect and deny liability for any breach thereof.

We use an outside company (Rhiem Serivces GmbH) to fulfil orders (shipping as well as payment). Rhiem does not retain, share, store or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes beyond fulfilling your order.
We partner with third parties to provide specific services. When the user signs up for these services, we will share names, or other contact information that is necessary for the third party to provide these services. These parties are not allowed to use personally identifiable information except for the purpose of providing these services.

Google will collect Cookie and Usage Data on behalf of the operator of this web site to evaluate the usage of the web site by you, to compile reports on web site activities and to provide further services associated with the usage of the web site and of the Internet to the web site operator.

Social Plug-Ins

Social plug-ins of various social Internet networks are integrated on our web pages (e.g. Facebook, YouTube or Twitter). They allow you to place bookmarks on those pages and to share the bookmarks with other members of the social Internet networks. You can recognise social plug-ins by the logos that can be seen on the web pages of the social Internet networks

When you call up a page of our web site that contains these social plug-ins, a direct link to the servers of the social Internet networks will be established. They will transmit the image of the plug-in visible to you and the associated functions directly to your browser, which integrates them into the display of our web page. If you are logged in to the social Internet network with your user name and password at that moment, the information that you are visiting our page will be transmitted to that network where it can be allocated to your user account.

When you interact with the social plug-ins, i.e. share one of our pages or use the Facebook "Like" or "Share" function or the Twitter “Tweet this” function, for instance, the contents of our pages will be linked to your profile on the social Internet network. If you are not a member of the social Internet networks or have logged out from providers before you visit our shop, it will nevertheless be possible that at least your IP address is transmitted and stored there.

The functions of the SoundCloud service are integrated on our pages. As you use SoundCloud functions, e.g. playing music and leaving comments, data including that associated with a SoundCloud account, if any, will be transmitted to SoundCloud. Please note that as the provider of the pages we do not receive knowledge of the content of the transmitted data nor of the usage thereof by SoundCloud.

Please note that other data privacy guidelines and liability regulations apply to such linked third-party web pages. Storage and usage of data by the page operator which arises as such linked pages are used may exceed the scope of the present data privacy statement. Further processing on connected social Internet networks, duration of storage as well as the intended use are exclusively defined by those providers. For details of the social plug-ins used and data privacy information of those providers please follow the links below.
