Data protection declaration
Thank you very much for your interest in our website. The protection of your personal data is very close to our hearts. At this point, therefore, we should like to inform you about data protection in our organisation. Naturally we comply with the legal regulations contained in the Federal Data Protection Act (BDPG), the Telemedia Act (TMG) and other data protection regulations.
You can entrust us with your personal data! They are encrypted by digital safety systems and transmitted to us. Our web pages are protected by technical measures against damage, destruction or unauthorised access.
Subject of the data protection
The subject of the data protection is personal data. In accordance with Article 3 Section 1 BDSG, these are individual items of data regarding the personal or factual relationships of a certain or determinable person. These include, for example, details such as name, postal address, email address or telephone number, as well as usage data such as your IP address where applicable.
Scope of data acquisition and storage
In general it is not necessary for you to give us your personal data in order to use our website. However, we may require your personal data so that we can actually provide our services. This applies both to the sending of information material or ordered goods as well as to the answering of individual enquires.
If you request us to render a service or to send goods, we will acquire and save your personal data only to the extent necessary in order to render the service or handle the contract. To this end it may be necessary to forward your personal data to companies that we use to render the service or handle the contract. These are, for example, transport companies or other service providers.
After the contract has been wound up your data will be blocked and, on expiry of the time limits specified by fiscal and commercial laws, deleted, unless you have expressly consented to further use of the data.
If you have subscribed with your email address to our newsletter, we will also use your email address beyond the execution of the contract for our own advertising purposes, until you cancel your newsletter subscription.
Data acquisition through the use of Google Analytics
Our website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. Google Analytics uses so-called "cookies", which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyse how users use the site. The data collected includes, for example, information about the operating system and the browser used, your IP address, the website you visited immediately before (referrer URL) and the date and time of your visit to our website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website is transmitted to and stored by Google on a server in the United States. Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for the website operator and providing other services for the website operator relating to website activity and internet usage. If legally prescribed, or if third parties process these data on Google's behalf, Google will also forward this information to these third parties. This forwarding takes place anonymised or pseudonymised. For more information, visit Google directly -
Google uses the double-click DART cookie.Users can deactivate the use of the DART cookie by calling up the data protection regulations of Google's advertising network and content advertising network.
No direct personal data relating to the user will be saved, only the IP address. This information is used to recognise you automatically when you next visit our website and to facilitate navigation for you. For example, cookies enable us to adapt a website to your interests or to save your password, so that you don't have to enter it again each time you visit.
You can prevent the installation of the cookies by making the appropriate setting in your browser. To do this you must switch off the saving of cookies in your Internet browser. Please refer to the instructions for the use of your Internet browser for further information.
Acquisition and saving of usage data
Use of the data for a specific purpose
We respect the principle of use of the data for a specific purpose and collect, process and save your personal data only for the purposes for which you have transmitted it to us. Your personal data will not be passed on to third parties without your express consent if this is not necessary for the rendering of services or the execution of a contract. Transmission to state institutions and authorities who are entitled to information also takes place only within the scope of the legal duty to provide information, or if we are compelled to so by a court judgment.
We also take data protection within our organisation very seriously. Our employees and the service providers commissioned by us are obligated by us to secrecy and compliance with the data protection regulations.
Right to information and rescission
You can obtain information – at any time and free of charge – about your personal data that is stored by us. You can, at any time, have the data that we have collected blocked, corrected or deleted and object to the anonymised or pseudonymised collection and saving of the data for the purposes of optimising our website. You can also, at any time and without giving a reason, rescind the consent you have given us for the collection and use of the data. To do this, use the contact address given in the imprint. We are at your disposal, should you have any further questions about our notes on data protection and the processing of your personal data.
Please note that data protection regulations and data protection management, e.g. at Google, can change on an ongoing basis. It is therefore advisable and necessary to inform yourself on a continuous basis about changes to the legal regulations and the practice of companies such as Google.
