Collecting general information on a visit to our website

Nature and purpose of data processing:

When you access our website, i.e., if you do not register or otherwise provide information, information of a general nature is automatically collected. This information (server log files) includes, for example, the type of web browser, the operating system used, the domain name of your internet service provider, your IP address and similar. This is exclusively information which cannot be traced back to you personally.

 

 

It is processed for the following purposes in particular:

  • Ensuring a problem-free connection to the website,
  • Ensuring problem-free of our website,
  • Evaluating system security and stability, and
  • For other administrative purposes.

We do not use your data to draw conclusions about you as an individual. Information of this kind may be statistically evaluated by us to optimise our website and its underlying technology.

Legal basis:

Data processing is carried out in accordance with Article 6 Paragraph 1 Point f of the GDPR on the basis of our legitimate interest in improving the stability and functionality of our website.

Recipients:

Recipients of the data may be technical service providers who act as processors in the operation and maintenance of our website.

Storage period:

Data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer required for the purposes for which it was collected. This is essentially the case for the data used to provide the website when the particular session is ended.

Provision prescribed or required:

The provision of the aforementioned personal data is neither legally nor contractually prescribed. However, without the IP address, the service and functionality of our website is not guaranteed. In addition, individual services may be unavailable or restricted. For this reason, it is not possible to object to this use of data.

Cookies

Nature and purpose of data processing:

Like many other websites, we use so-called “cookies”. Cookies are small text files that are transferred from a website server to your hard drive. We therefore automatically obtain certain data such as IP address, browser used, operating system and your connection to the internet.

Cookies cannot be used to start programmes or to transfer viruses to a computer. On the basis of the information contained in cookies, we can facilitate navigation and enable the correct display of our web pages.

We will never pass the data collected by us on to third parties, or establish a link this to personal data without your consent.

Of course, you can also view our website without cookies. You have two options:

1.     When accessing the website for the first time, you will be asked if you agree to the use of cookies. Cookies are not used without your consent.

Please note that some features of our website may not be available if you have disabled the use of cookies.

Contact form

Nature and purpose of data processing:

The data provided by you will be stored for the purpose of individual communication with you. This requires a valid e-mail address and your name. This serves to assign the enquiry and subsequently to answer it. The provision of other data is optional.

Legal basis:

Processing of the data entered into the contact form takes place on the basis of a legitimate interest (Article 6 Paragraph 1 Point f GDPR).

By providing the contact form we aim to enable straightforward contact. Your information will be stored for the purpose of processing the enquiry and for possible follow-up questions.

If you contact us to request a quote, the data entered in the contact form will be used to carry out pre-contractual actions (Article 6 Paragraph 1 Point f GDPR).

Recipients:

Recipients of the data may be processors.

Storage period:

Data will be deleted no later than 6 months after processing the enquiry.

If a contractual relationship is entered into, we are subject to the statutory retention periods according to the German Commercial Code (HGB) and delete your data after these deadlines.

Provision prescribed or required:

The provision of your personal data is voluntary. However, we can only process your enquiry if you provide us with your name, your e-mail address and the reason for your enquiry.

 

Registering for our shop system

Nature and purpose of data processing:

When registering for the use of our personalised services, some personal data will be collected, such as your name, address, as well as contact and communication details (e.g. telephone number and e-mail address). If you are registered with us, you can access content and services that we only offer to registered users. Registered users also have the option of changing or deleting the data provided during registration at any time. Of course, we will also provide you with information about the personal data we hold about you at any time.

Our shop system is reserved for our customers. The personal data used here is limited to names and the user’s access data.

Legal basis:

Processing of the data entered during registration takes place on the basis of the user’s consent (Article 6 Paragraph 1 Point a GDPR).

Recipient:

Recipients of the data may be technical service providers who act as processors in the operation and maintenance of our website.

Storage period:

In this respect, data is processed only as long as the appropriate consent has been given. It will then be deleted, insofar as there is no legal obligation to retain such data. To contact us in this respect, please use the contact details provided at the beginning of this privacy policy.

The provision of your personal data is voluntary, solely on the basis of your consent. Without the provision of your personal data, we cannot grant you access to our content and services offered.

Use of Google Web Fonts

Nature and purpose of data processing:

In order to present our content so that it appears correctly and is graphically appealing on different browsers, we use “Google Web Fonts” from Google LLC (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; hereinafter referred to as “Google”) on this website for displaying text.

The privacy policy of the library operator Google can be found here: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/

Legal basis:

The legal basis for the inclusion of Google Web Fonts and the associated transfer of data to Google is your consent (Article 6 Paragraph 1 Point a GDPR).

 

Recipients:

Viewing script or font libraries automatically triggers a connection to the operator of the library. It is theoretically possible that in this case the operator, in this case Google, collects data – but it is currently unclear whether they do, and if so, for what purposes.

Storage period:

We collect no personal data by including Google Web Fonts.

Further information on Google Web Fonts is available at https://developers.google.com/fonts/faq and in Google’s privacy policy: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/.

Use of Google Maps

Nature and purpose of data processing:

On this website we use the Google Maps service. Google Maps is operated by Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (hereinafter referred to as “Google”). This allows us to display interactive maps directly in the web page and allows you to easily use the mapping function.

Legal basis:

The legal basis for the inclusion of Google Maps and the associated transfer of data to Google is your consent (Article 6 Paragraph 1 Point a GDPR).

Recipients:

By visiting the website, Google receives information that you have accessed the corresponding subpage of our website. This is done regardless of whether Google provides a user account that you are logged into or whether there is no user account. If you are logged into Google, your data will be assigned directly to your account.

If you do not want the data to be assigned to your profile on Google, you must log out of Google before activating the button. Google stores your data as user profiles and uses it for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or adjusting the design of its website in line with demand. Such an evaluation is done in particular (even for users who are not logged in) to provide advertising in line with demand and to inform other social network users about your activities on our website. You have a right to object against the formation of these user profiles, but you must direct this objection to Google.

Storage period:

We collect no personal data by including Google Maps.

Transfer to third countries:

Google processes your data in the United States and is subject to the EU-US privacy shield: https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework .

Provision prescribed or required:

The provision of personal data is neither legally nor contractually prescribed and is voluntarily, solely on the basis of your consent. If you prevent access, this can lead to restrictions in the functioning of the website.
