2. GENERAL REMARKS AND MANDATORY INFORMATION
The operators of this website take the privacy of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data as confidential and in accordance with the statutory data privacy regulations and this data privacy statement.
However, we would like to point out that data transmission via internet (e.g. e-mail communication) cannot be entirely secure and may have security vulnerabilities. Complete protection of personal details against unauthorised access by third parties is not possible.
Note on the responsible body
The body responsible for processing data on this website is:
33129 Delbrück, Germany
Management Martin Volpers, Stefan Matthaei
Telephone: +49 (0) 52 50 / 98 79-0
The responsible body is the natural or legal person that decides alone or with others on the purposes and means of processing personal data (e.g. names, e-mail addresses etc.).
Revoking your consent to process your data
Many data processing procedures are only possible with your express consent. You can revoke consent provided previously at any time. All you have to do is e-mail us an informal message. The legality of the data processed prior to the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
Right to complain with the responsible supervisory authority
Data subjects also have the right to complain to the responsible supervisory authority in the event of violations of data privacy. The responsible supervisory authority in data privacy matters is the national supervisory authority of the Federal State in which our company has its registered office. See the following link for a list of data protection officers and their contact details: https://www.bfdi.bund.de/DE/Infothek/Anschriften_Links/anschriften_links-node.html.
Right of data portability
You have the right to have the data we process automatically on the basis of your consent or in fulfilment of a contract passed on to you or to third parties in a standard, machine-readable format. If you demand direct transfer of the data to another data controller, this shall only be done if it is technically feasible.
SSL or TLS encryption
For security reasons, and in order to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as the orders or queries that you transmit to us in our capacity as website operators, this site uses SSL or TLS encryption. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that your browser’s address bar changes from “http://” to “https://” and by the key symbol shown in your browser’s address bar.
If SSL or TLS encryption is enabled, the data that you transmit to us cannot be read by any third parties.
Information, blocking, deletion
You shall be entitled within the scope of the applicable statutory provisions, at any time, to receive information free of charge on any data stored relating to you personally as well as on their origin, their recipient and the purpose of data processing. You may also be entitled to claim the correction, blocking or deletion of such data. For further questions about this as well as general questions about the person-related data, you may contact us at any time under the contact details displayed in the Legal Notice.
Objection to advertisement emails
Providers are obligated to publish contact information in the Legal Notice. The use of such contact information by third parties for the purpose of distributing unsolicited advertisements or other commercial information is prohibited. The operators of this website reserve the right to take legal measures in case of being sent unsolicited commercial information, e.g. spam mails etc.
3. DATA COLLECTION ON OUR WEBSITE
Server log files
The provider of this website automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These refer to:
These data will not be collated with other data sources.
Data is processed on the basis of section 6 subsection 1 f of GDPR, which permits processing of data to fulfil a contract or precontractual measures.
If you send us inquiries via the contact form, we shall save your information provided in the inquiry form, including your contact data stated therein, for purposes of processing the inquiry and in the event of additional questions. We shall not pass on these data without your consent.
Processing the data entered in the contact form is therefore performed exclusively on the basis of your consent (section 6 subsection 1 a of GDPR). You can revoke this consent at any time. All you have to do is e-mail us an informal message. The legality of data processing procedures prior to the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
We keep the data you enter in the contact form until you ask us to delete it, revoke your consent for storage or the purpose for data storage no longer applies (e.g. after your query has been processed in full). Mandatory legal provisions – especially archival periods – remain unaffected.
Registration on this website
You can register on our website to use additional functions on the page. We only use the data you enter for the purpose of using the current offer or service for which you registered. The mandatory details requested on registration must be provided in full. Otherwise we will reject the registration.
For major changes, for example concerning the scope of the service or technically necessary changes, we use the e-mail address you provide on registration to inform you.
The data entered on registration is therefore processed on the basis of your consent (section 6 subsection 1 a of GDPR). You can revoke the consent you provided previously at any time. All you have to do is e-mail us an informal message. The legality of the data already processed remains unaffected by the revocation.
We store the data recorded on registration as long as you remain registered on our website, after which it is deleted. Legal archival periods are unaffected by this.
4. ANALYTICS TOOLS AND ADVERTISING
This website uses functions of the website analysis tool Google Analytics. The provider of Google Analytics is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
Google Analytics uses so-called "cookies". These are text files that are stored on your computer to analyse your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website (including your IP address) is sent to and stored on a Google server in the USA.
Google Analytics cookies are stored on the basis of section 6 subsection 1 f of GDPR. The Provider has a legitimate interest in the analysis of user behaviour in order to optimise both its website/Internet offer and its advertising activities.
On this website, we have activated the IP anonymisation function. As a result, your IP address is stored by Google in one of the Member States of the European Union, or in other countries which are party to the European Economic Area Agreement before it is sent to the USA. Only in exceptional cases is the complete IP address transferred to a Google server in the USA and abbreviated there. Google uses this information on behalf of the website operator to evaluate the way you use the website, to collate reports on website activities and to provide the website operator other services related to website and Internet use. Google will not associate the IP address communicated by your browser under the Google Analytics system with other data belonging to Google.
You may prevent the installation of cookies by adjusting the settings of your browser; however, if you do so, you may be unable to use all features of this website. Further, you may prevent the collection of data generated through cookies (incl. your IP address) and related to the use of this website as well as the processing of such data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin under the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.
Objection to data collection
You can prevent Google Analytics from recording data by clicking on the following link. This will install an opt-out cookie that will prevent the future recording of your data during visits to this website: Deactivate Google Analytics
You can find more detailed information about Google Analytics along with the Google data privacy statement at: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=de.
Order data processing
We have concluded a contract on order data processing with Google and implement the strict stipulations of German Data Protection Authorities on the use of Google Analytics.
Demographic properties with Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics’ “demographic properties” function. This allows reports to be produced that contain statements on ages, gender and interests of the visitors to the website. This data comes from interest-related advertising of Google and from visitor data from third parties. This data cannot be attributed to a specific person. You can deactivate this function at any time via the display settings in your Google account or prohibit recording of your data by Google Analytics as presented in the “Objection to data collection” point.
