Other data are acquired automatically by our IT systems when accessing the website. These are above all technical data (e.g. Internet browser, operating system or time of access to the page). They are collected automatically once you access our website.
For which purpose do we use your data?
Part of the data is collected to guarantee a fault-free provision of the website. Other data can be used to analyse your user behaviour.
Which rights do you have regarding your data?
You always have the right to free information on the origin, recipient and purpose of your stored personal data. Furthermore, you are entitled to ask for the correction, blocking or deletion of the data. Please contact us anytime at the address indicated in the legal notice to receive more information on this question as well as on other questions regarding data protection. You have a right of appeal to the responsible regulatory authority. Furthermore you have the right to demand the limitation of the processing of your personal data under certain circumstances. You will find corresponding details in the Data Privacy Statement under “Right of limitation of processing”.
Analysis tools and tools of third-party providers
When accessing our website, your surfing habits can be evaluated statistically. This happens above all with cookies and so-called analysis programmes. Your surfing habits are usually analysed anonymously; the surfing habits cannot be traced back to you. You can object this analysis or prevent it by not using certain tools. You will find detailed information on it in the following Data Privacy Statement.
You have the right to object this analysis. We will inform you on the possibilities of objection in this Data Privacy Statement.
Revocation of your consent to data processing
Many data processing processes are only possible with your express consent. You can revoke an already given consent. An informal message sent to us by e-mail is enough for this purpose. The lawfulness of the data processing until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
Right of revocation especially regarding data collection and direct advertising (article 21 GDPR)
If data processing takes place based on art. 6, par. 1, lit e or f of the GDPR, you always have the right to file an objection against the processing of your personal data for reasons resulting from your special situation; this applies also for a profiling based on these regulations. The respective legal basis of a processing is specified in this Data Privacy Statement. If you file an objection, your corresponding personal data are not processed any more, except we can prove mandatory reasons for the processing which are worthy for protection and which prevail your interests, rights and freedom or if the processing serves the assertion, execution or defence of legal claims (objection according to art. 21, par. 1 GDPR).
If your personal data are processed for direct advertising, you always have the right to object the processing of the personal data referring to you for the purpose of such advertising; this applies also to the profiling provided this is in connection with such direct advertising. If you contradict it, your personal data are not used for any direct advertising afterwards (contradiction according to art. 21, par. 2 GDPR).
SSL or TLS encryption
For safety reasons and for the protection of the transfer of confidential contents, as for example orders or inquiries which you send us as website operator, this website uses an SSL or TLS encryption. An encrypted connection can be identified by a change from “http://” to “https://” in the address line and the lock symbol in the browser line.
If the SSL or TLS encryption is activated, third parties cannot read the data which you send us.
Information, locking, deletion and correction
You always have the right to free information on your personal data stored, the origin and the recipient as well as the purpose of data processing and possibly a right to correction, locking or deletion of these data in the scope of the valid legal regulations. You can contact us anytime at the address indicated in the legal notice to receive more information on this topic as well as on other questions regarding personal data.
Right of limitation of processing
You have the right to demand the limitation of processing of your personal data. Please contact us anytime at the address indicated in the legal notice. The right of limitation of processing applies for the following cases:
- If you contest the correctness of the personal data we have stored, we usually need some time to check it. You have the right to demand the limitation of processing of your personal data for the duration of this verification.
- If your personal data were/are processed illegally, you can require the limitation of data processing instead of the deletion.
- If we do not need your personal data any more, but you need them to execute, defend or assert legal claims, you have the right to require the limitation of processing of your personal data instead of the deletion.
- If you have filed an objection according to art. 21, par. 1 GDPR, your and our interests must be weighed up. You have the right to demand the limitation of processing of your personal data as long as it is not clear whose interests prevail.
If you have limited the processing of your personal data, these data may only be processed with your consent or to assert, execute or defend legal claims or to protect the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of an important public interest of the European Union or a member state - except the storage of these data.
Objection to advertising mails
The use of contact data published in the scope of the disclaimer duty in order to submit not expressly requested advertisement or information material is expressly objected. The operator of the websites expressly reserves the right to legal steps in case of a not requested provision of advertising information, for example by spam mails.
The internet pages sometimes use so-called cookies. Cookies do not cause any damage to your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies are used to make our offer more user-friendly, more effective and safer. Cookies are small text files which are filed on your computer and which your browser stores.
Most of the cookies used are so-called “session cookies". They are automatically deleted after end of your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your terminal until you delete them. These cookies allow us to recognise your browser on your next visit.
You can set your browser in a way that you are informed if cookies are set, that cookies are only allowed in individual cases, that you can exclude the acceptance of cookies in certain cases or principally and that the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser is activated. If cookies are deactivated, the functionality of this website is limited.
Cookies which are necessary to carry out the electronic communication process or to provide certain functions you request (e.g. shopping cart function) are stored on the basis of sect. 6, par. 1, lit f GDPR. The website operator has a justified interest in the storage of cookies for a technically fault-free and optimised provision of his services. If other cookies (e.g. cookies to analyse your surfing habits) are stored, they are covered separately in this data privacy statement.
Server log files
The provider of the website collects and stores information automatically in so-called server log files which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:
- the browser type and browser version
- the operating system used
- the referrer URL
- the host name of the accessing computer
- the time of the server inquiry
- the IP address
These data are not combined with other data sources.
These data are collected based on art. 6, par. 1, lit f of the GDPR. The website operator has a justified interest in the technically sound presentation and the optimisation of his website - for this purpose, server log files must be stored.
If you send us inquiries using the contact form, we store your details from the contact form including the contact data you indicated in the form for the purpose of a processing of the inquiry and for any following questions. We do not divulge these data without your consent.
Thus, the data entered in the contact form are exclusively processed based on your consent (art. 6, par. 1, lit. a of the GDPR). You can revoke an already given consent anytime. An informal message sent to us by e-mail is enough for this purpose. The lawfulness of the data processing until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
The data which you have entered in the contact form remain with us until you request the deletion, revoke your consent for storage or if the purpose for the data storage does not apply any more (e.g. after completed processing of your inquiry). Any mandatory legal regulations - especially retention periods - are not affected.
This website uses functions of the web analysis service Google Analytics. The provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
Google Analytics uses so-called "cookies". These are text files which are stored on your computer and which make an analysis of the use of the website possible. The information about your access to this website which is generated by the cookie is usually transferred to a server of Google in the USA and stored there.
The Google Analytics cookies are stored and the analysis tool is used based on art. 6, par. 1, lit f of the GDPR. The website operator has a justified interest in the analysis of the user habits to optimise his web offering as well as his advertisement.
We have activated the function IP anonymisation on this website. Google shortens your IP address within the member states of the European Union or in other member states being part of the Agreement on the European Economic Area before transmission into the USA. The full IP address is transferred to a server of Google in the USA and shortened there only in exceptional cases. Google uses this information on behalf of the operator to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on the website activities and to provide services in connection with the website use and the internet use to the website operator. The IP address transmitted in the scope of Google Analytics by your browser is not combined with other data of Google.
You may prevent the storage of cookies by a corresponding setting in your browser software; however, we point out that in this case it is possible that you may not use all functions of this website to the full extent. Furthermore you may prevent the collection of the data generated by the cookie which refer to the use of the website (incl. your IP address) as well as the processing of these data by Google by loading down and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.
Contradiction to data collection
You may prevent the collection of your data by Google Analytics by clicking on the following link. An opt-out cookie is set which prevents the collection of your data in case of future visits of this website. Deactivate Google Analytics.
You will find more information on the use of user data by Google Analytics in the data privacy statement of Google: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=de.
We concluded a contract for the order processing with Google and completely implement the strict provisions of the German Data Protection Authorities regarding the use of Google Analytics.
Demographic features” of Google Analytics
This website uses the function “demographic features” of Google Analytics. Thereby it is possible to prepare reports which include information on the age, the gender and the interests of the visitors of the site. These data originate from interest-related advertising of Google as well as from other visitor data of third-party providers. It is not possible to assign these data to a certain person. You may deactivate this function anytime via the display setting in your Google account or principally prohibit the collection of your data by Google Analytics as described in the point “contradiction to data collection”.
Embedding of services and contents of third parties
It may be that contents of third parties as e.g. RSS feeds or graphics of other websites are embedded in this online offering. This always requires that the provider of these contents (also referred to as “third-party provider” in the following) becomes aware of the IP address of the users, as without the IP address they would not be able to send the contents to the browser of the respective user. Thus, the IP address is necessary to display these contents. The provider does his best to use only those contents, the providers of which use the IP addresses only for the provision of the contents. However, the provider of this website has no influence on a possible storage of the IP addresses by the third-party providers e.g. for statistical purposes. If this is known, the users are informed.
A third party's use of contact data published in the scope of the disclaimer duty in order to submit not expressly requested advertisement or information material is expressly objected. The operator of the websites expressly reserves the right to legal steps in case of a not requested provision of advertising information, for example by spam mails.
