Information about the processing of your personal data (data protection declaration)

We place great emphasis on the correct use of your data which we record when you visit our Internet site and inform you in detail about the recording, storage and handling of these data. Our Internet site can be visited by users generally without disclosing their personal data. Insofar as personal data (for example, name, address, e-mail address or phone number) are entered on our Web site, this is always on a voluntary basis. These data will be handled by us in accordance with the German and European data protection regulations and the principles defined therein that are valid for us.

We do our best to ensure complete protection of the personal data process on this Internet site by organisational and technical measures. Nevertheless, Internet-based data transfers (e.g. For communication by e-mail) inherently exhibit security loopholes so that absolute protection (e.g. Against attack by hackers) cannot be guaranteed.

Our Daniel Fuchs who you can reach at the following address is responsible for data protection:

1. Use of cookies

Cookies are tiny text files that Web Servers save on your computer when you visit an Internet site. When the appropriate Internet site is opened again, your browser sends the previously created cookie back to the Web Server. Since you are “recognisable” by cookies, an Internet site can be personalised by using cookies, displayed advertisements can be controlled specially and navigation on an Internet site can be simplified.

How do we use cookies?

Our whole Internet site can also be used without cookies. A cookie may be set for certain applications (e.g. for controlling pop-up windows, as an aid for filling in forms, in forums and similar). This cookie is only set to check whether or not you have already visited our Internet site at your next visit. Personal information is not stored in this cookie.

If you do not want cookies to be used, you can set that you do not wish cookies to be saved in every browser. Which settings you have to make in your browser will be explained in the section “Refusing cookies”.

How do third parties use cookies in our online presentation?

For checking the quality and success of our Web site, our Internet presentation uses the services of Google Analytics, here - if you allow - Google will save cookies on your computer. The use of these cookies enables analysis of the use of our Internet site. The information saved in this cookie about the use of our Internet site is transferred together with your IP address to a Google Analytics server in the USA and stored there by Google.

You can prevent saving of cookies by third providers (e.g. Google Analytics) as described in the section “Refusing cookies”. If you do not do this, you declare with the use of our Internet site that you agree to the processing of the data saved in this cookie by Google Analytics.

2. Collection of general data and information

Our Internet site collects a number of general data and items of information every time a user visits the Internet site and stores them in the server logfiles. The following may be recorded

  • - the used browser types and versions,
  • the operating system used by the accessing system,
  • the Internet site from which an accessing system accesses our Internet site (so-called referrers)
  • the sub-sites which are linked by an accessing system on our Internet site,

- the date and time of access to the Internet site

- an Internet protocol address (IP address)

- the Internet Service Provider of the accessing system.

This general data and information is recorded anonymously, i.e. we get no references to the person concerned from your use. The anonymous data of the server logfiles are saved separately from all personal data provided by a person concerned. We save these data to be able to determine wilful manipulation or misuse of our online presentation and to make statistical evaluations of the quality of our Internet presentation.

3. Contact possibility through the Internet site

Based on legal regulations, our Internet site contains information which allow you to make fast electronic contact with our company as well as direct communication with us which also includes a general address of the so-called electronic mail (e-mail address). If you contact us by e-mail or by means of a contact form, your personal data will be saved automatically. Such voluntarily rendered personal data will be saved for the purpose of processing or contacting. These personal data will not be disclosed to third parties.

4. Storage and transfer of data on placing an order

The provision of personal data may be necessary for concluding a contract between us and you; failure to provide these personal data would result in not being able to conclude a contract with you.

Storage of the personal data serves in this case exclusively for providing our contractually owed services. The same applies for storage processes which are essential for carrying our pre-contractual measures, for instance in cases of inquiries about our services.

There will be no transfer of personal data to third parties or their further processing in this case. The case is different if

- we are subject to a legal obligation which necessitates processing or transfer of personal data such as the fulfilment of tax or legal commercial law obligations or

- transfer of personal data to third parties should be necessary in the course of contract handling.

5. Routine deletion and barring of personal data

We process and save personal data only for the period of time that is necessary for providing our contractually owed services; thereafter they will be deleted by routine. Longer storage is possible insofar as we are obliged to do so due to tax or commercial retention period and documentation obligations.

6. Rights of the users

You have the right to receive free information about the personal data stored by us regarding your person, to demand the correction or deletion of stored personal data or restriction of their further use and to revoke your consent at any time.

The IP address transferred by your browser within the scope of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.
