Privacy Policy

Thank you for your interest in our website. We take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We would therefore like to inform you at this point about data protection in our company. It goes without saying that we comply with the statutory provisions of the Data Protection Act (DBSG) of the Telemedia Act (TMG) and other data protection provisions.

You can trust us with your personal data! It is encrypted by digital security systems and transmitted to us. Our websites are protected against damage, destruction or unauthorised access by means of technical measures.

 

Object of data protection

The object of data protection is personal data. This is any information relating to the personal or factual circumstances of a particular or identifiable natural person in accordance with § 3, para. 1 of the BDSG. This includes information, such as your name, postal address, E-mail address or telephone number, but also usage data like your IP address.

 

Scope of data collection and storage

In general, you do not have to disclose your personal data in order to use our website. However, we need your personal data, if applicable, so that we can provide our services. This applies both when sending informative material or ordered goods as well as for answering individual enquiries.
If you instruct us to provide a service or send goods, we collect and store your personal data only to the extent that is necessary to provide the service or fulfil the contract. This may require transmitting your personal data to companies that we use to provide the service or fulfil the contract. These include transport companies or other service providers.

When the contract is completely fulfilled, your data is blocked and deleted upon expiry of the tax and commercial law regulations unless you have expressly agreed to the further use of the data.

If you used your E-mail address to subscribe to our newsletter, we will use your E-mail address for advertising purposes once the contract has been fulfilled until you unsubscribe from the newsletter.

 

Data collection through the use of Google Analytics

Our website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. Google Analytics uses so-called "cookies". These are text files which are stored on your computer and facilitate an analysis of your use of the website. For example, it records information about the operating system, your browser, your IP address, the previous website you visited (referrer URL) and the date and time of your visit to our website. The information generated by this text file regarding your use of our website is generally transmitted to a Google server in the U.S. and stored there. Google uses this information to evaluate your use of our website, to compile reports on website activities for website operators and to provide other services associated with the website and Internet use. Google may pass this information to third parties if this is legally required or when third parties process this data on behalf of Google. This use will be anonymous or pseudonymous. Further information is available directly from Google.

Collection and storage of usage data

To improve our website we collect and save data such as the time and day a page was accessed, the page from which you accessed our site, etc., unless you object to this data collection and storage. This is done anonymously, without identifying the user of the site personally. User profiles may be created using a pseudonym. Once again, there is no connection between the natural persons behind the pseudonym and the usage data collected. We also use cookies to collect and store the usage data. These are small text files that are stored on your computer and used for the storage of statistical information, such as the operating system, your Internet browser, your IP address, the website you previously visited (referrer URL) and the time. We collect this data exclusively for statistical purposes to improve our website and make our Internet offers even more attractive. The data is only collected and stored anonymously or under a pseudonym and does not allow any conclusions to be drawn about you as a natural person.

 

Data use for a specific purpose

We observe the principle of data use for a specific purpose and collect, process and store your personal data only for the purpose communicated by you. Your personal data is not transmitted to third parties without your express approval, provided that this is not necessary for the provision of the service or for fulfilling the contract. The transmission of such data to state institutions and authorities that are entitled to receive such information only takes place within the scope of the statutory obligations to provide information, or if we are under an obligation to provide information by virtue of a court order.

We also take internal data protection very seriously. Our employees as well as service providers engaged by us are obliged by us to maintain confidentiality and to comply with the data protection regulations.

 

Right of access and withdrawal

You can access the data we have stored about you free of charge and at any time without giving reasons. You may block, correct or delete the data collected by us at any time and revoke the anonymised or pseudonymised collection and storage of data for the purpose of improving our website. The authorisation given to us to collect and use your data may also be revoked at any time without giving reasons. Please refer to the contact address given in the Legal Notice. Please do not hesitate to contact us at any time if you have further questions concerning data protection and the processing of your personal data.

Please note that data protection regulations and procedures, such as at Google, are continuously subject to change. It is therefore advisable and necessary to keep yourself fully informed about changes to the statutory provisions and practices of companies, such as Google.
