We would like to note that data transmission online (e.g. during communication by e-mail) can be subject to security vulnerabilities. Complete protection of data from access by third parties is not possible.

Revoking your consent to data processing

 

Many data processing procedures are only possible with your explicit consent. You can revoke your previously given consent at any point. An informal notification to us by e-mail is sufficient. The legitimacy of data processing up to your withdrawal of consent is unaffected by this.

Right to data portability

 

You have the right to have the data we process automatically based on your consent or performance of a contract submitted to you or a third party in a common, machine-readable format. If you request the direct transmission of the data to a different responsible party, this can only be put into effect, if it is technically feasible.

 

SSL or TSL encryption

 

For safety reasons and to protect transmission of confidential content, such as orders or enquiries, which you send to us in our role as site providers, this site uses SSL or TSL encryption. You can detect that encryption is used by the address bar of your browser changing from “http://” to “https://” and a lock symbol appearing in your browser bar.

When SSL or TSL encryption is active, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.

Based on the valid legal provisions, you have the right to demand information about your saved personal data, their origin and recipient and the purpose of data processing, and you may have a right to correction, blocking or deletion of this data, at any point free of charge. For the above or further questions on the topic of personal data, please do not hesitate to contact us at the address listed in our company information.

 

Objection against promotional e-mails

 

We hereby object to the use of the contact data published due to the obligation to publish company information in order to transmit promotional and informational material not specifically requested by us.

4. Data collection on our website

 

Cookies

 

Some of these websites use so-called cookies. Cookies do not cause harm to your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies are used to make our web presence more user friendly, efficient and safe. Cookies are small text files stored on your computer and saved by your browser.

 

Most of the cookies we use are so-called "session cookies". They are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Other cookies remain saved on your device until you delete them. These cookies allow us to recognise your browser when you visit our websites next.

 

You can change your browser settings, so that you are informed when cookies are set or so that cookies are only permitted in individual cases, cookies are blocked entirely for specific cases or in general or are deleted automatically when you close your browser. However, deactivating cookies may restrict the functions of this website.

 

Cookies required for the electronic communication process or to provide specific functions requested by you (e.g. shopping cart function) are saved on the basis of Art. 6 section 1 (f) GDPR. The website provider has a legitimate interest in saving cookies to ensure technically fault-free and optimised provision of services. If other cookies (e.g. cookies for analysing your browsing behaviour) are saved, these are treated separately in this data protection statement.

 

Server log files

 

The site provider automatically collects and saves information in so-called server log files, which your browser transmits to us automatically. These are:

 

  • Browser type and browser version
  • Operating system used
  • Referrer URL
  • Host name of the accessing computer
  • Time of the server request
  • IP address

 

This data is not combined with other data sources.

 

The basis of data processing is Art. 6 section 1 (f) GDPR, which permits processing of data to ensure contract performance or complete pre-contractual measures.

 

Contact form

 

If you send us an enquiry through our contact form, your information from the contact form including the contact data indicated by you will be saved for the purpose of processing your enquiry and in case there are any follow-up questions. We will not disclose this data without your consent.

 

This means that processing of the data entered in our contact form is based solely on your consent (Art. 6 section 1 (a) GDPR). You can revoke this consent at any time. An informal notification to us by e-mail is sufficient. The legitimacy of data processing up to your withdrawal of consent is unaffected by this.

 

The data you entered in our contact form will remain saved by us until you request its deletion, revoke your consent to storage of this data or the purpose of data storage is no longer relevant (e.g. after processing of your enquiry has been completed). Legal provisions - in particular legally mandated retention periods - remain unaffected.

 

5. Plug-ins and tools

 

Google Maps

 

This site uses the web service Google Maps through an API. The provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

 

It is necessary for your IP address to be saved, so that you can use the functions of Google Maps. In general, this information is transferred to a Google server in the USA and saved there. The provider of this site has no influence on this data transfer.

 

The use of Google Maps is in the interest of providing an appealing web presence and of making the locations indicated on our website easier to find. This represents a legitimate interest as defined by Art. 6 section 1 (f) GDPR.
