1 Data Privacy at a Glance
We have provided a simple overview here of what happens to your personal data when you visit our website. Personal data refers to any data that personally identifies you. Please refer to the privacy notice below for detailed information on the subject of data protection.
Web analytics tools and third-party tools
Your browsing behaviour can be analysed statistically when you visit our website. This is done primarily using cookies and analytics programs. Your website activity is analysed anonymously as a general rule and cannot be traced back to you. You have the right to object to this analysis or prevent it by not using certain tools. The following privacy notice provides detailed information on this. We will explain in this privacy notice how you can opt out.
2 General Notes and Required Information
Data controller details
The party responsible for processing data on this website is:
tel.: +49 (0)89 741 185 197,
The party responsible is the natural or legal person who, alone or together with others, decides on the purposes and means of processing personal data (e.g., names, e-mail addresses, etc.).
Withdrawing your consent to data processing
Many data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. You can withdraw consent that you have already given at any time. You can send us an informal message via e-mail to make this request. The legality of any data processed before consent was withdrawn remains unaffected.
Right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority
If your data privacy has been violated, you have the right to submit a complaint to a data protection authority. The supervisory authority responsible for data protection issues is the data protection officer of the federal state in which our company’s headquarters are located. A list of the data protection officers and their contact details can be found at this link: https://www.bfdi.bund.de/DE/Infothek/Anschriften_Links/anschriften_links-node.html.
Right to data portability
You are entitled to request a copy of the data we process automatically based on your consent, or for the performance of a contract, in a commonly used and machine-readable format or have this data transmitted to a third party. If you request that your personal data be transmitted directly to another controller, this will only be done to the extent that it is technically feasible.
SSL and TLS Encryption
This website uses SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or queries, that you send to us as site operator. You can recognize an encrypted connection when the address bar of the browser changes from “http://” to “https://” and by the lock icon visible in the address bar. If SSL or TLS encryption is enabled, the data that you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
Your rights with regard to your personal data
We remind you that you may at any time exercise certain rights under applicable law and regulation, including the right to be provided with information free of charge about your stored personal data, the origin of the data and recipients, as well as the purpose of storage. You can also request to have your personal data corrected, restricted or erased. Should you have any further questions on the subject of personal data or other queries, please contact us at the address provided under Legal Information.
Objection to promotional e-mails
We hereby explicitly prohibit the use of the contact details provided as part of our duty to publish a legal notice for the purpose of sending us any advertising or informational materials that we have not expressly requested. The website operator reserves the right to take legal action in the event of unsolicited promotional material being sent, for example in the form of spam e-mails.
3 Data Collection on our Website
Server log files
The website provider automatically collects and stores information in server log files that your browser transmits to us automatically. This information includes:
- Browser type and version
- Operating system used
- Referring URL
- Host name of the accessing computer
- Time of the server request
- IP address
This information is not merged with other data sources.
The legal basis for data processing is Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR, which allows the processing of data for the performance of a contract to which you are a party, or in order to take steps at your request prior to entering into a contract.
If you send us an enquiry via the contact form, we will collect the data entered on the form, including the contact details you provide, to answer your question and any follow-up questions. We do not share this information without your consent. We will, therefore, process any data you enter in the contact form only with your consent as per Article 6(1)(a) of the GDPR. You may revoke your consent at any time. You can send us an informal message via e-mail to make this request. The data collected before we receive your request may still be legally processed. We will retain the data you provide on the contact form until you request deletion, revoke your consent for storage, or the purpose for storage no longer exists (e.g., after your enquiry has been processed). Any mandatory statutory provisions, especially those regarding mandatory data retention periods, remain unaffected by this.
4 Social Media
Sharing content via plug-ins (Facebook, Google+1, Twitter & Co.)
The content on our website can be shared on other social networks such as Facebook, Twitter or Google+ in line with data protection laws. This website uses the eRecht24 Safe Sharing Tool for this purpose. This tool establishes direct contact between the networks and users only after users click on one of these buttons. This tool does not automatically transfer user data to the operators of these platforms. If users are logged into one of the social networks, the Like, +1, and Share buttons etc. for Facebook, Google+1 and Twitter will display an information window in which the user can edit the text before it is sent. Our users can share the content of this website on social networks in compliance with data protection laws without the providers of these networks creating full profiles of the users’ browsing behaviour.
Facebook plug-ins (Like & Share buttons)
5 Analytics Tools and Advertising
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service. It is operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Google Analytics uses “cookies”. These are text files that are stored on your computer and allow analysis of your website use. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. Google Analytics cookies are stored in accordance with Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analysing user behaviour to optimize both its website and its advertising. Disable Google Analytics
We have activated the IP anonymisation feature on this website. Your IP address will be truncated within the area of Member States of the European Union or other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area before it is transferred to the United States. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address first transferred to a Google server in the US and truncated there. Google will use this information on behalf of the operator of this website to analyse your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity, and to provide other services associated with website activity and Internet usage for the website operator. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with any other data held by Google.
You can prevent these cookies from being stored by selecting the appropriate settings in your browser. However, we wish to point out that doing so may mean you will not be able to enjoy the full functionality of this website. You can also prevent the data generated by cookies about your use of the website (incl. your IP address) from being passed on to Google, and the processing of these data by Google, by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.
Objecting to the collection of data
Outsourced data processing
We have entered into an agreement with Google for the outsourcing of our data processing and fully implement the strict requirements of the German data protection authorities when using Google Analytics.
