DATA PROTECTION STATEMENT
Basic information on data protection
We appreciate your interest in our website. Protection of your private sphere is important to us. Below we will provide you with detailed information on how we handle your data. Data are the basis on which we can provide excellent service. But our greatest asset is the trust our customers place in us. Protecting our customers’ data and using them only in the way our customers expect of us is our top priority, so compliance with the legal provisions on data protection goes without saying for us. It is also important to us that you know at all times when we save what data and how we use them.
Collection, processing and use of personal data
You can visit our site without giving personal information. We save only access data without personal information, such as the name of your internet service provider, the site you visit us from or the name of the file you requested. These data are analysed only for the purpose of improving our product and permit no conclusions about you. Personal data are collected only if you give us them voluntarily as part of your e-mail contact. Without your specific consent, we will use the data you give us only to handle your enquiry.
Use and forwarding of your data
The personal data you give us via a website or by e-mail (e.g. your name and address or your e-mail address) will be processed only for correspondence with you or for the purpose for which you have provided us with the data. To the extent we use service providers to handle processes, the contractual relationships are governed by the provisions of the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG).
Consent and revocation
If you have provided us with personal data, you can have them deleted again at any time. Data for billing and accounting purposes will not be affected by any revocation or deletion. Otherwise, use of your e-mail address, your telephone or mobile and fax numbers for advertising or market research and opinion polling purposes requires separate consent. You can give that consent electronically when entering your data and revoke it for the future at any time. Personal data given to us via our website will be stored only until the purpose for which you entrusted them with us has been fulfilled. To the extent we need to observe retention periods under commercial and tax law, certain data may be stored for up to 10 years.
General legal information
Should you no longer agree to us saving your personal data, or they are no longer correct, we will if instructed arrange for your data to be deleted or blocked or make the necessary corrections (to the extent permitted by law). On request, you will receive information free of charge on all personal data that we have stored concerning you. We occasionally refer to third-party websites. Whilst we select these third parties carefully, we can assume no guarantee or liability for the correctness and completeness of the content and data security of third-party websites, nor does this Data Protection Statement apply to linked third-party websites. We run our business such that we meet our obligations in all countries where we are represented. To the extent we introduce new products or services, change internet processes, or when internet and IT security technology is developed further, the data protection information must be updated. For that reason, we reserve the right to change or update this Statement as necessary. We will publish the change at this point, so you should call up this website on a regular basis to get the latest version of the data protection information. We checked all the information included on this website with the greatest of care. However, we assume no guarantee for the fact that the content of our own websites is always correct, complete and up to date.
Information on data security
