Who we are

The website https://www.beam-profiler.com and the Beam-Profiler app for Android are provided by our company Spectralio GmbH.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

When you contact us or purchase a product, we collect and store your personal information in order to be able to reply to your inquiry or to fullfil the order. The personal information comprises your name and email address, and the shipping address and payment details in the case of a purchase.

When using our Beam-Profiler app, we request permission to use the camera of the smartphone which is used for the measurement procedure. The recorded pictures are stored locally on your smartphone and are not transmitted to our servers or any third party.


When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: https://automattic.com/privacy/. After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.


If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

Cookies are also used by the web analytics service Google Analytics, as described in the next section.

Google Analytics

We use the service Google Analytics which is provided by Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

Google Analytics uses cookies to record and analyse the usage of websites by its visitors. These cookies allow to group the recorded pageviews into sessions which belong to the same visitor. However the visitors remain anonymous, and we have implemented the option to shorten the IP-addresses which are transmitted to Google, making it impossible to identify individual visitors.

If you would Iike to opt out of tracking by Google Analytics, you can use the following switch:

This will set a cookie that stores your decision to disable tracking by Google Analytics on this website. When you use a different browser in the future or delete your cookies, you will need to set the switch again.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
