Data protection and legal advices


Privacy Statement

We take the protection of your personal data very seriously and will adhere strictly to the relevant applicable legal regulations under the German Data Protection Act, in particular, the regulations laid down in the German Data Protection Act and the German Telemedia Act. We would like to give you an overview in the following statement by outlining the method by which we guarantee the protection of your personal data and a description of what type of data is collected for what purpose.

 

 

General

Anonymous data or (if appropriate) personal data is collected during visits to our Internet websites. Personal data is exclusively data that you have provided to us voluntarily when filling in entry windows, electronic contact forms or by sending an email to our Company and where you have given your consent to the collection of such data. Personal data include information that will allow your identification as an individual, for example, your name, address, phone number or email address.

 

 

Anonymous data collection

The web server will collect general information whenever an Internet website is accessed, for example, the type of web browser, the operating system used, the screen name of the Internet service provider, the IP address of the computer used, the Internet website from which you have accessed our company website, the individual pages accessed on our website and the date and duration of your visit to our website. This is, however, only anonymous information that will not permit any conclusions regarding your identity as an individual. Such data will exclusively be utilized for statistical purposes in anonymized form.

 

 

Personal Data

Personal data will be collected when data is transmitted in a pre-defined entry window or contact form on our website, or if contact is made to our company by email. It is up to you to decide at your own discretion whether and what kind of information you transmit to us in this way. Personal data collected by us will only be used (without your prior consent) for processing an order or your requests. However, we reserve the right to pass your personal data on to enterprises in our authorized dealers' network commissioned by us, so that any specific request can be processed or answered. We will use your personal data for sending out (personalized) newsletters and for inclusion in a customer and potential customer database kept by our company, provided that you have given your consent and further provided that this is permissible under applicable legal regulations. In addition, we may also use your personal data for other promotional or marketing purposes and for market research, provided that you have given your consent and further provided that this is permissible under applicable legal regulations. Your personal data will not be sold, leased or provided to third parties other than in the manner described here.

 

 

Social plugins

 

Our website uses social plugins (“plugins”) provided by the social network facebook.com, operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Avenue, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”). The plugins are identifiable by a Facebook logo (white letter f on blue background or a thumb up icon) or the notice “Facebook Social Plugin”. For a full list of all social Plugins please seehttp://developers.facebook.com/plugins.

 

When you visit a page of our website that contains a social plugin, your browser establishes a direct connection to Facebook servers. Facebook directly transfers the plugin content to your browser which embeds the latter into the website, enabling Facebook to receive information about your having accessed the respective page of our website. Thus we have no influence on the data gathered by the plugin and inform you according to our state of knowledge:

 

The embedded plugins provide Facebook with the information that you have accessed the corresponding page of our website. If you are logged into Facebook, your visit can be assigned to your Facebook account. If you interact with the plugins, for example by clicking “Like”, or entering a comment, the corresponding information is transmitted from your browser directly to Facebook and stored by it. Even if you are not logged into Facebook, there is possibility that the plugins transmits your IP-address to Facebook.

 

For the information on the purpose and scope of data collection and procession by Facebook, as well as your rights in this respect and settings options for protecting your privacy please visit Facebook's privacy policy:http://www.facebook.com/policy.php.

 

If you are a Facebook member and do not want Facebook to connect the data concerning your visit to our website with your member data already stored by Facebook, please log off Facebook before entering our website. Further you can block Facebook social Plugins by using add-ons for your browser.

 

 

Cookies

Cookies are used at several positions on our Internet websites, in order to increase the user-friendliness, effectiveness and security of our offer. Cookies are small text files that will be filed on your computer and stored by your Internet browser. We exclusively use "session cookies", which will be deleted automatically after you have finished visiting our Internet websites. Cookies will not cause damage to your computer and they will not include any viruses. You may, of course, also view our Internet websites without cookies. You can de-activate the corresponding option in the system settings of your Internet browser on your computer. If you do not accept cookies, this may result in restrictions to the functions available when visiting our company websites.

 

 

Security

We take measures to ensure the security of your personal data. For this purpose, your personal data will be protected against loss, destruction, manipulation or unauthorized access or disclosure. If you communicate with our Company by email or by using an electronic form, data transfer will, however, not be encrypted. Confidentiality of the data transferred cannot be guaranteed in these cases because of the technical conditions prevailing on the Internet. Emails are transmitted through numerous computers; for this reason, there are many inherent possibilities of storing, analyzing or changing data.

Beyond that, you may also request that data about you that has been collected and used by us shall be changed or deleted at any time.
