As a user of our website, this data protection declaration provides you with all the necessary information about how, to what extent and for what purpose we or third parties collect and use data from you. Your data is collected and used strictly in accordance with the specifications of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the Telemedia Act (TMG). We feel particularly committed to the confidentiality of your personal data and therefore work strictly within the limits that the legal requirements set for us. This personal data is collected on a voluntary basis if this is possible for us. We also only pass this data on to third parties with your express consent. We ensure a high level of security for particularly confidential data such as payment transactions or with regard to your inquiries to us by using SSL encryption. At this point, however, we would like to point out the general dangers of Internet use, over which we have no influence. Especially in e-mail traffic, your data is not secure without further precautions and may be recorded by third parties.
Information, deletion, blocking
You will receive information free of charge at any time about the personal data we have stored about you as well as the origin, the recipient and the purpose of data collection and data processing. You also have the right to request the correction, blocking or deletion of your data. Excluded from this are data that are kept due to legal regulations or are required for proper business transactions. So that a data lock can be implemented at any time, data is kept in a lock file for control purposes. If data is not covered by a statutory archiving obligation, we will delete your data at your request. If the archiving obligation applies, we will block your data. For all questions and concerns regarding the correction, blocking or deletion of personal data, please contact our data protection officer using the contact details in this data protection declaration or to the address given in the imprint.
Collection of access data
The delivery and presentation of content via our website technically requires the collection of certain data. With your access to our website, these so-called server log files are recorded by us or the provider of the web space. These log files do not allow any conclusions to be drawn about you and your person. The corresponding information consists of the name of the website, the file, the current date, the amount of data, the web browser and its version, the operating system used, the domain name of your Internet provider, the referrer URL as the page from which you switched to our site, as well as the corresponding IP address. We use this data to display and deliver our content and for statistical purposes. The information supports the provision and constant improvement of our offer. We also reserve the right to subsequently check the data mentioned if there is a suspicion of illegal use of our offer.
You can register on our website to receive our newsletter. We need your e-mail address for this. In addition, we must check, in compliance with the relevant legal regulations, whether you are actually the owner of the e-mail address provided and would like to receive the newsletter. We therefore collect information that makes such a check possible. The data collected in this context is used to send and receive the newsletter. They have a different purpose and are not passed on to third parties. Apart from the information required for sending the newsletter, no further data is collected from our side. Since sending and receiving the newsletter depends on your consent, you can revoke this consent to the collection and storage of your data at any time without giving reasons. To do this, use the "unsubscribe link" provided in the newsletter.
We collect personal data within the framework of data avoidance and data economy only to the extent and for as long as it is necessary for the use of our website or as required by law. We take the protection of your personal data seriously and strictly adhere to the relevant legal regulations and this data protection declaration when collecting and processing personal data. If the purpose of the data collection no longer applies or if the end of the statutory storage period has been reached, the data collected will be blocked or deleted. Our website can be used regularly without disclosing personal data. If we collect personal data - such as your name, your address or your e-mail address - this data collection is voluntary. This data will not be disclosed to third parties without your express consent. Please note that data is generally not always transmitted securely over the Internet. Especially in e-mail traffic, protection during data exchange cannot be guaranteed.
Server log files
The server log files are anonymous data that are recorded when you access our website. This information does not allow any conclusions to be drawn about you personally, but is essential for the delivery and presentation of our content for technical reasons. They also serve our statistics and the constant optimization of our content. Typical log files are the date and time of access, the amount of data, the browser used for access and its version, the operating system used, the domain name of the provider you commissioned, the page from which you came to our offer (referrer URL) and your IP address. Log files also enable a precise check to be carried out if there is any suspicion of illegal use of our website.
Our website uses SSL encryption when it comes to the transmission of confidential or personal content from our users. This encryption is activated, for example, when processing payment transactions and for inquiries that you send to us via our website. Please make sure that SSL encryption is activated on your side for the relevant activities. The use of encryption is easy to recognize: the display in your browser line changes from "http://" to "https://". Data encrypted via SSL cannot be read by third parties. Only transmit your confidential information with activated SSL encryption and contact us if in doubt.
Objection to promotional emails
As part of the statutory imprint obligation, we must publish our contact details. These are sometimes used by third parties to send unwanted advertising and information. We hereby object to any sending of advertising material of any kind that we have not expressly authorized. We also expressly reserve the right to take legal action against the unwanted and unsolicited sending of advertising material. This applies in particular to so-called spam e-mails, spam letters and spam faxes. We would like to point out that the unauthorized transmission of advertising material can affect competition law, civil law and criminal law. Spam e-mails and spam faxes in particular can lead to high claims for damages if they disrupt business operations by overflowing mailboxes or fax machines.
Encrypted payment transactions
We secure your data in payment transactions. Therefore, for security reasons and to protect your confidential and personal content during payment transactions, our site uses SSL encryption. You can determine for yourself whether SSL encryption is activated or not. You can recognize the use of encryption by the address line of the browser. Data transmission is encrypted only when the regular display changes from "http://" to "https://". The browser line "https://" indicates the use of SSL encryption, payment transactions are now encrypted. Activating SSL encryption makes it impossible for third parties to read your confidential data. Therefore, only transfer your data with activated SSL encryption.
