SECURITY AND PROTECTION OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA

We attach high priority to upholding the confidentiality of the personal data you provide to us and preventing them from being accessed by unauthorized parties. To ensure that your data are optimally protected, we therefore take the greatest possible care and apply the latest, most advanced standards of data protection and security.

We operate this website in full compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) of the European Union and other legal provisions for protecting personal data.

Each time our website is accessed, information is automatically sent to our server and temporarily stored there in log files before being automatically deleted. Specifically, they comprise the following:

  • IP address of the accessed computer
  • Date and time of access
  • Name and URL of the accessed file
  • The website from which it was accessed (referrer URL)
  • The browser used and, if relevant, the operating system

These data are used for the following purposes:

  • To ensure problem-free connections
  • To ensure easy use of the website
  • To evaluate system security and stability

The legal basis for this is Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR. Stored data are only kept for a short time and then deleted.
In some cases, we may also capture personal data―specifically, the user’s name, address, phone number or email address―but only if these are provided to us voluntarily (e.g. in connection with a contact request) and if we are entitled (because the user has given us permission to do so) or required by law to process, store and use them, or if the data in question are essential for managing our contractual relationship and there is no reason to suppose that there is an overriding interest in protecting the user’s interests by keeping the data confidential (according to Article 6(1)(a,b,c,f) of the GDPR).

We only use data for the purposes for which they have been entrusted to us: for replying to your inquiry, sending you information materials, obtaining additional information, or processing your order. Data are processed in accordance with Art. 6(1)(a) of the GDPR. Data you entrust to us are deleted after your request has been met and the applicable statutory storage period, if relevant, has elapsed. No data are made available to third parties (for example, service providers of ours) unless you have provided your consent for this or we are legally entitled to do so.

These third parties can be in countries outside the European Union or the European Economic Area that lack similar data protection legislation. In these cases, we take steps to ensure an equivalent level of protection.

We use cookies to enable and facilitate the use of our website. These are files that your browser stores on your device when you visit our website. They are used to store data about your visit so that you will be recognized if you visit our website again later, as well as for statistical purposes and for improving and ensuring the operation of our website. The legal basis for this is Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR. Temporary cookies are deleted when you leave the website. You can also use your browser’s settings to configure it so that it rejects cookies or only permits their use according to defined rules and then deletes them again. However, this may cause the website to malfunction.

We use tracking tools for collecting statistical data in order to improve our offering. The legal basis for this is Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR. The tools are contained in Google Analytics, a Web analysis service of Google Inc. (https://www.google.de/intl/en/about/) at 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (hereinafter referred to as “Google”). An agreement has been concluded with Google for this purpose. This service generates pseudonymized utilization profiles containing a variety of information such as the browser type and ID, the operating system, the origin of an inquiry, the IP address and time, and whether or not cookies are blocked. These profiles are often sent to countries outside Germany, especially to the USA, where they are evaluated by Google and possibly relayed to third parties. You can use your browser’s settings to prevent the use of this tracking software. In addition, you can prevent Google from processing these data by installing an opt-out add-on on your device; it is available at https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.

With the Google Ads conversion tracking service, a cookie is also placed on your device when you are routed to this website after clicking an ad in Google. It remains valid for 30 days and serves to analyze and statistically assess your use of the site. It does not capture any personal data on you, only the fact that you arrived at the site via a Google ad. You can prevent this use by going to your browser’s settings and blocking cookies for this site.

In compliance with Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR, this website contains plug-ins, links and buttons to social media sites for advertising and informational purposes. As a result, when you go to it data are sent to the corresponding social media providers, which may be located in countries outside Europe. These data are stored and processed by those providers; in particular, a provider can tell that you have visited our site if you are simultaneously logged into its own service. Also if you “share” our website in a social network or otherwise spread information about it (e.g. with a “like”), this is transmitted to and stored by the provider, and possibly added to your user profile there. The social networks use these data for business, marketing, advertising and other business purposes, and especially also for creating and storing profiles on you and generating personalized advertising. For detailed information on the scope and purpose of data capture and other data processing and use by Facebook, as well as your relevant rights and the settings you can change to safeguard your privacy, please go to Facebook’s privacy policy at https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/.

For secure transmission of our website’s content, it is encrypted using state-of-the-art SSL technology. We and the contracted service providers use appropriate, technically advanced methods to protect the data and especially to limit access to them.
