As a user of our website, you will receive all necessary information in this data protection declaration about how, to what extent and for what purpose we or third-party providers collect data from you and use it. The collection and use of your data is strictly in accordance with the provisions of the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and the Telemedia Act (TMG). We feel particularly committed to the confidentiality of your personal data and therefore work strictly within the limits set by the legal requirements. Personal data are collected on a voluntary basis if this is possible for us. We also only pass these data on to third parties with your express consent. We ensure a high level of security by using SSL encryption for particularly confidential data such as payment transactions or enquiries. At this point, however, we would like to draw your attention to the general dangers of Internet use over which we have no influence. Particularly in e-mail traffic, your data are not secure without further precautions and may be collected by third parties under certain circumstances.
You will receive at any time and free of charge information about your personal data stored by us as well as about the origin, the recipient and the purpose of data collection and data processing. In addition, you have the right to demand the correction, blocking or deletion of your data. Excluded from this are data which are stored due to legal regulations or which are required for the proper processing of business. To ensure that a data block can be implemented at any time, data are stored in a block file for control purposes. If data are not covered by a statutory archiving obligation, we will delete your data at your request. If the archiving obligation applies, we block your data. For all questions and concerns regarding the correction, blocking or deletion of personal data, please contact our data protection officer through the contact details in this data protection declaration or at the address given in the imprint.
The delivery and presentation of content via our website technically requires the collection of certain data. When you access our website, these so-called server log files are recorded by us or the provider of the web space. These log files do not allow any conclusions to be drawn about you or your person. The respective information consists of the name of the website, the file, the current date, the amount of data, the web browser and its version, the operating system used, the domain name of your Internet provider, the referrer URL as the page from which you switched to our site, and the corresponding IP address. We use these data to display and deliver our content and for statistical purposes. The information supports the provision and continuous improvement of our services. We also reserve the right to subsequently check the data mentioned should there be any suspicion of illegal use of our services.
You can subscribe to our newsletter on our website. For this purpose, we need your e-mail address. In addition, we must check, in accordance with the relevant legal regulations, whether you are the actual owner of the e-mail address provided and would like to receive the newsletter. We therefore collect information that makes such a check possible. The data collected in this context are used to send and receive the newsletter. They have a different purpose and will not be passed on to third parties. Apart from the information required for sending the newsletter, no other data will be collected on our side. As the sending and receiving of newsletters depends on your consent, you can revoke this consent to the collection and storage of your data at any time without giving reasons. Use the »unsubscribe link« provided in the newsletter for this purpose.
We collect personal data in the context of data avoidance and data economy only to the extent and for as long as it is necessary for the use of our website, or as required by law. We take the protection of your personal data seriously and adhere strictly to the relevant statutory regulations and this data protection declaration when collecting and processing personal data. If the purpose of the data collection no longer applies or the end of the legal storage period has been reached, the collected data will be blocked or deleted. Our website can be used regularly without the passing on of personal data. If we collect personal data - such as your name, address or e-mail address - this data collection is voluntary. These data will not be disclosed to third parties without your express consent. Please note that data are generally not always transmitted securely on the Internet. Particularly in e-mail traffic, the protection of data exchange cannot be guaranteed.
Server logfiles are anonymized data that are collected when you access our website. This information does not allow conclusions to be drawn about you personally, but is indispensable for technical reasons for the delivery and presentation of our content. Furthermore, they serve our statistics and the continuous optimization of our content. Typical logfiles are the date and time of access, the amount of data, the browser used for access and its version, the operating system used, the domain name of the provider commissioned by you, the page from which you came to our offer (referrer URL) and your IP address. In addition, logfiles enable a precise check in case of suspicion of illegal use of our website.
Our website uses SSL encryption for the transmission of confidential or personal content of our users. This encryption is activated, for example, during the processing of payment transactions as well as in the case of enquiries you make to us via our website. Please make sure that the SSL encryption is activated by your side during corresponding activities. The use of encryption is easy to recognize: The display in your browser line changes from "http://" to "https://". Data encrypted via SSL cannot be read by third parties. Only transmit your confidential information if SSL encryption is activated and contact us if in doubt.
In the context of the legal imprint obligation we must publish our contact data. These may be used by third parties to send unsolicited advertising and information. We hereby object to any sending of advertising material of any kind not expressly authorized by us. Furthermore, we expressly reserve the right to take legal action against the unwanted and unsolicited sending of advertising material. This applies in particular to so-called spam e-mails, spam letters and spam faxes. We would like to point out that the unauthorized transmission of advertising material can affect competition law, civil law and criminal law. Spam e-mails and spam faxes in particular can lead to high claims for damages if they disrupt business operations by overfilling mailboxes or fax machines.
