Privacy policy

Many thanks for visiting our website.

Data protection is our top priority.

We would like to inform you that it is possible to use our website without providing any personal data, unless special services of our website are used or business is conducted through it or you contact us through it. If special personal data is then used, it will only be processed in accordance with applicable law, in this case primarily the DSGVO.

However, we would like to draw your attention to this at the appropriate point and ask you to give your consent with the help of a cross. If you do not want this, you are free not to tick the box.

The necessary clarification is therefore provided with this data protection declaration, so we ask you to read it carefully.

You may also be asked to indicate whether you have read them at the appropriate point.

We would also like to point out that our website has been designed to be as secure as possible in technical terms, but we cannot exclude the possibility that security gaps may occur, so that absolute protection can never be guaranteed.

Therefore you only provide data if you want to take the risk in this respect, otherwise you are welcome to call us and provide your data by telephone.

  1. Access to the website

When you access our website, the Internet browser that you use as a visitor automatically sends data to the server of this website. In addition, these data are stored for a limited period of time in a log file.

These are the following data:

  • IP address. Browser and operating system of your terminal device and the name of the access provider used by the visitor.
  • The name and URL or referrer URL (i.e. the website from which you linked to our website) of you and any sub-websites you visit.
  • Date and time of access

However, no conclusions can be drawn about the person concerned.

This serves only to optimise the websites or to guarantee their permanent functionality. Furthermore, it should also enable advertising to be better placed. If necessary, these law enforcement authorities must be provided.

However, this anonymous data is only used for statistical purposes and to increase data protection and data security in our company, so that we can ultimately ensure an optimum level of protection for the personal data processed by us. We store the anonymous data of the server log files separately from personal data.

Under Article 6(1), first sentence, letter f) of the DPA, the processing of personal data must be justified. Our legitimate interest in data processing is as follows:

  • The speedy establishment of the connection of the website
  • a user-friendly application of the website
  • to recognise and guarantee the security and stability of the systems, and
  • to facilitate and improve the administration of the website and to ensure the security and stability of the systems

However, the processing is expressly not carried out for the purpose of gaining knowledge about the person visiting the website.

3. Contact form

Visitors are welcome to send messages to us via an online contact form on our website instead of via email/phone or post.

In order to receive a reply, it is at least necessary to provide a valid e-mail address and first name.

All other information can be provided voluntarily by the requesting person.

By sending the message via the contact form and by ticking the box, the visitor agrees to the processing of the personal data transmitted.

The data processing is carried out exclusively for the purpose of processing and answering enquiries via the contact form. This is done on the basis of the voluntarily given consent in accordance with Art. 6 Paragraph 1 Sentence 1 Letter a) DSGVO.

Personal data is automatically stored both when sending e-mails and when using the contact form for the purpose of contacting or processing.

The personal data collected for the use of the contact form are automatically deleted as soon as the enquiry is completed and there are no reasons for further storage, i.e. the purpose of storage no longer applies.

In addition, we would like to point out that there are legal storage obligations for certain professions, so that the data relating to these contractual relationships must also be stored for this period. After this period has expired, the data is regularly deleted automatically, even if the fulfilment of the contract/the contractual relationship has finally ended.

You have the right to be informed at any time whether and when your data will be deleted.


  1. Retention obligations and deletion periods

As we have just informed you, we would like to point out that there are legal storage obligations for certain professions, so that the data relating to these contractual relationships must also be stored for this period.

Tax regulations must also be observed.

There are also storage purposes or laws, guidelines or regulations - national or international - which require the storage of data, prescribe storage periods or prevent premature deletion.

After the expiry of this period or the purpose of storage, the data is regularly deleted automatically, if the fulfilment of the contract/the contractual relationship is also finally terminated. We have a certificate issued for the destruction of files.

You have the right to be informed at any time whether and when your data will be deleted.


  1. Passing on of data

Es erfolgte keine Weitergabe Ihrer Daten an Dritte, es sei denn Sie haben uns ausdrücklich das Einverständnis schriftlich dazu gegeben oder es besteht eine gesetzliche Pflicht hierzu oder ist für die Erfüllung des Vertragsverhältnisses erforderlich ist.

  1. Cookies

Our website uses cookies, i.e. files that are stored by websites on a computer or in a computer system and are retrieved during further visits to the site. Many cookies contain a cookie ID, so that this string of characters can be used to allocate Internet pages and servers to the specific Internet browser on which the cookie was stored, so that it is possible to differentiate between the various browsers used and thus to recognise the user and to provide the respective user of the website with a more user-friendly service - by optimising information and offers - than would be the case without this use and visit, as, for example, it is not necessary to enter the user data again, the shopping basket is remembered or certain fields no longer need to be filled in.

You can object to the setting of cookies by our website at any time or request their deletion. You can also delete these cookies yourself using software or the Internet browser.

Please note, however, that it is possible that not all functions of our website will then function properly or be available.

·          

8. Legal basis of the processing

The legal basis results from Art. 6 DSGVO.

You are hereby once again notified of the text of the law:

  1. 1The processing is lawful only if at least one of the following conditions is fulfilled:
    1. The data subject has given his/her consent to the processing of personal data concerning him/her for one or more specific purposes;
    2. processing is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is party or in order to take steps at the request of the data subject prior to entering into a contract
    3. the processing is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which the controller is subject
    4. processing is necessary in order to protect the vital interests of the data subject or of another natural person
    5. the processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller
    6. processing is necessary in order to protect the legitimate interests of the controller or of a third party, except where such interests are overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject which require the protection of personal data, in particular where the data subject is a child

2Subparagraph 1(f) shall not apply to processing carried out by public authorities in the performance of their duties.

  1. Member States may maintain or introduce more specific provisions to adapt the application of the provisions of this Regulation in relation to processing to comply with paragraph 1(c) and (e) by defining more precisely specific processing requirements and other measures to ensure lawful and fair processing, including for other specific processing situations referred to in Chapter IX.
  2. 1The legal basis for the processing operations referred to in paragraph 1(c) and (e) shall be determined by
    1. Union law, or
    2. the law of the Member States to which the person responsible is subject.

2 The purpose of the processing must be specified in this legal basis or, as regards the processing referred to in paragraph 1 letter e), must be necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller. 3 This legal basis may contain specific provisions to adapt the application of the provisions of this Regulation, including provisions on the general conditions applicable to the regulation of the lawfulness of processing by the controller, the types of data processed, the persons concerned, the entities to whom and for what purposes the personal data may be disclosed, the purposes for which they are to be processed, the purposes for which they may be stored, the period for which they may be stored and the processing operations and procedures that may be carried out, including measures to ensure lawful and fair processing, such as those applicable to other specific processing situations referred to in Chapter IX. 4Union law or the law of the Member States must pursue an objective in the public interest and be proportionate to the legitimate aim pursued.

  1. Where processing for a purpose other than that for which the personal data were collected is not based on the consent of the data subject or on a provision of Union or national law which, in a democratic society, constitutes a necessary and proportionate measure to safeguard the objectives referred to in Article 23(1), the controller shall, in order to determine whether processing for a different purpose is compatible with that for which the personal data were originally collected, take account, inter alia
    1. any link between the purposes for which the personal data were collected and the purposes of the intended further processing
    2. the context in which the personal data were collected, in particular as regards the relationship between the data subjects and the controller
    3. the nature of the personal data, in particular whether special categories of personal data are processed in accordance with Article 9 or whether personal data relating to criminal convictions and offences are processed in accordance with Article 10
    4. the possible consequences of the intended further processing for the data subjects,
    5. the existence of appropriate guarantees, which may include encryption or pseudonymisation

We point out that our legitimate interest is to carry out our business activities and to protect our employees from damage.

  1. Informationt

There is a right to information at any time about the data processed and stored by us, unless the information would have to be kept secret due to a legitimate interest of a third party. In addition, if the data cannot be deleted due to statutory storage obligations or if it is used exclusively for the purposes of data security or data protection control or if the provision of information would require a disproportionately high effort and the processing for other purposes is excluded by appropriate technical and organisational measures

Furthermore, there is an obligation to provide the information if there is a threat of damage or if their interests outweigh the interest in maintaining secrecy.

  1. Revocation of a consent

A given consent can be informally revoked at any time with effect for the future, namely by telephone, e-mail, if necessary by fax or post, so that the data processing is then stopped and your data is also deleted on request.

  1. Complaint

If you consider that the processing of personal data concerning you is unlawful, you must lodge a complaint with a data protection supervisory authority competent for the place where you are staying or working, or for the place where the alleged infringement occurred.

You can find out more about this on the Internet.

  1. Googlemaps

We use Google Maps from Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA on our website.

Data may be collected by Google so that we cannot exclude the possibility that Google may also store the information on servers in a third country and/or transfer it to a third country, which we cannot prevent.

If necessary, you should log out of Gmail or change your cookie settings when using this website.

If this is not enough for you, you can always contact us.

 

  1. Google Fonts

It is possible that through the use of external fonts (Google Fonts) Google may also store information on servers in a third country and/or transfer it to a third country, which we cannot prevent.

By using these fonts, we do not collect any data ourselves, but want to ensure the readability of the website through uniform fonts (our legitimate interest).

You can find more detailed information at:

14. Privacy policy on the use and application of Google Analytics (with anonymisation function)

The person responsible for processing has integrated the Google Analytics component (with anonymisation function) on this website. Google Analytics is a web analysis service. Web analysis is the collection, collection and evaluation of data on the behaviour of visitors to websites. Among other things, a web analysis service collects data about the website from which a person concerned came to a website (so-called referrer), which subpages of the website were accessed or how often and for how long a subpage was viewed. A web analysis is mainly used to optimise a website and for cost-benefit analysis of internet advertising.

The operating company of the Google Analytics component is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

The data controller uses the addition "_gat._anonymizeIp" for web analysis via Google Analytics. By means of this addition, the IP address of the Internet connection of the person concerned is shortened by Google and made anonymous if the access to our Internet pages is from a member state of the European Union or from another state that is a party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.

The purpose of the Google Analytics component is to analyse the flow of visitors to our website. Among other things, Google uses the data and information obtained to evaluate the use of our website in order to compile online reports for us which show the activities on our website and to provide further services in connection with the use of our website.

Google Analytics places a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. What cookies are has already been explained above. By setting the cookie, Google is enabled to analyse the use of our website. Each time one of the individual pages of this website is called up, which is operated by the person responsible for processing and on which a Google Analytics component has been integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the person concerned is automatically prompted by the respective Google Analytics component to transmit data to Google for the purpose of online analysis. In the course of this technical process, Google obtains knowledge of personal data, such as the IP address of the person concerned, which Google uses, among other things, to trace the origin of visitors and clicks and subsequently to enable commission settlements.

The cookie is used to store personal information, such as the time of access, the place from which access was made and the frequency of visits to our website by the person concerned. Each time our website is visited, this personal data, including the IP address of the Internet connection used by the person concerned, is transmitted to Google in the United States of America. This personal data is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may pass on this personal data collected via the technical process to third parties.

The person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies by our website, as described above, at any time by means of a corresponding setting in the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent Google from setting a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. In addition, a cookie already set by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs.

Furthermore, the data subject has the opportunity to object to and prevent the collection of data generated by Google Analytics and relating to the use of this website and the processing of this data by Google. For this purpose, the person concerned must download and install a browser add-on under the link https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout. This browser add-on informs Google Analytics via JavaScript that no data and information about visits to websites may be transmitted to Google Analytics. The installation of the browser add-on is considered by Google to be an objection. If the information technology system of the person concerned is deleted, formatted or reinstalled at a later date, the person concerned must re-install the browser add-on in order to deactivate Google Analytics. If the browser add-on is uninstalled or deactivated by the person concerned or by another person within his or her sphere of control, it is possible to reinstall or reactivate the browser add-on.

Further information and Google's applicable privacy policy can be found at https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/ and http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html. Google Analytics is explained in more detail at this link https://www.google.com/intl/de_de/analytics/.
