Thank you for your interest in our online presence. The protection of your personal data is very important to us. At this point we would like to inform you about data protection in our company. Of course we observe the legal provisions of the Data Protection Act (BDSG) of the Telemedia Act (TMG) and other data protection regulations.
They are encrypted by digital security systems and transmitted to us. Our websites are protected by technical measures against damage, destruction or unauthorized access.
The subject of data protection is personal data. According to § 3 para. 1 BDSG, these are individual details about personal or factual circumstances of an identified or identifiable natural person. This includes, for example, information such as name, postal address, e-mail address or telephone number, but also usage data such as your IP address.
In general, it is not necessary for you to provide personal data in order to use our website. However, in order for us to actually provide our services, we may need your personal data. This applies to the sending of information material or ordered goods as well as to the answering of individual inquiries.
If you instruct us to provide a service or to send goods, we only collect and store your personal data to the extent necessary to provide the service or to execute the contract. For this purpose, it may be necessary to pass on your personal data to companies that we use to provide the service or implement the contract. These are for example transport companies or other service providers.
After the contract has been fully processed, your data will be blocked and deleted after the expiry of the tax and commercial law regulations, unless you have expressly agreed to a further use of your data.
If you have registered for our newsletter with your e-mail address, we will use your e-mail address for our own advertising purposes beyond the execution of the contract until you unsubscribe from the newsletter.
Our website uses the counting pixel technology of wiredminds GmbH
(www.wiredminds.de) to analyse visitor behaviour.
In the process, data may be collected, processed and stored from which user profiles are created under a pseudonym. Wherever possible and reasonable, these user profiles are made completely anonymous. Cookies may be used for this purpose. Cookies are small text files that are stored in the visitor’s Internet browser and serve to recognize the Internet browser. The collected data, which may also include personal data, is transmitted to wiredminds or collected directly by wiredminds. wiredminds may use information left behind by visits to the websites to create anonymised user profiles. The data thus obtained will not be used to personally identify the visitor of this website without the separately granted consent of the person concerned and will not be merged with personal data about the bearer of the pseudonym. If IP addresses are recorded, they are immediately made anonymous by deleting the last number block.
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. (“Google”). The use of this website is based on Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f. DSGVO. Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, text files which are stored on your computer and which enable an analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website such as
- used operating system,
- Referrer-URL (the previously visited page),
- Host name of the accessing computer (IP address),
- Time of the server request,
are usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. The IP address transmitted by your browser within the scope of Google Analytics is not merged with other Google data. We have also added the code “anonymizeIP” to Google Analytics on this website. This guarantees the masking of your IP address so that all data is collected anonymously. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there.
You can also prevent the data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) from being passed on to Google and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available under the following link http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.
As an alternative to the browser add-on, especially for browsers on mobile devices, you can also prevent Google Analytics from collecting data by clicking on this link. An opt-out cookie is set to prevent the future collection of your data when you visit this website. The opt-out cookie is only valid in this browser and only for our website and is stored on your device. If you delete the cookies in this browser, you will have to set the opt-out cookie again.
Further information on data protection in connection with Google Analytics can be found in the Google Analytics help (https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=de).
We observe the principle of purpose-related data use and collect, process and store your personal data only for the purposes for which you have provided them to us. Your personal data will not be passed on to third parties without your express consent, unless this is necessary for the provision of the service or the execution of the contract. Also, the transmission to state institutions and authorities entitled to receive information is only carried out within the scope of the legal obligations to provide information or if we are obliged to provide information by a court decision.
We also take the company’s internal data protection very seriously. Our employees and the service companies commissioned by us have been obligated by us to maintain secrecy and to comply with data protection regulations.
