General note on data protection
The EU General Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO), the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG 2018) and, subsequently, the Telecommunications Act and Telemedia Act protect personal data. This is data related to a natural person. Data of legal entities are not subject to this protection.
Personal information is information that can be associated with you. (eg your name, telephone number or e-mail address). Information that is not associated with your identity (such as number of users of the site) is not covered.
Collection and processing of personal data
In connection with your access, data is stored on our servers for backup purposes, which may allow identification:
- IP address
- sided pages
- updated document
- HTTP status code
Additional personal data will only be collected if you voluntarily provide this information, for example in the context of a request or registration.
Explanations of data protection
As a rule, you can access our internet pages without giving any information about yourself. If your name, address or other personal data is needed in individual cases, you will be informed in advance. Your personal usage information will be used to make our service as pleasant and enjoyable as possible. If you decide to provide us with personal information over the Internet, e.g. Correspondence can be handled or an order can be executed, so this data is handled carefully according to the strict regulations of the EU Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO) and the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG 2018). By accessing the website, we receive usage data that is stored for backup purposes and may allow identification (for example, IP address, date, time, and pages viewed). These data are evaluated by us to get to know the user behavior and to set up statistics. There is no personal utilization. The statistical analysis of anonymous data records remains reserved.
Transfer of personal information to third parties
If data is to be passed on to service providers within the scope of the order data processing, these are bound to the BDSG, other legal regulations and contractually to our data protection declaration. Insofar as we are legally obliged to do so or by court order, your data will be forwarded to the authorized persons to the extent required. For other purposes, we will not share your information with third parties without your express consent.
We store your data on specially protected servers. Access to it is only possible for a few authorized persons who are responsible for the technical, commercial or editorial support of these servers.
Right of withdrawal
If you ask us not to use and / or delete your personal data for further contact, we will do so accordingly. Data which are absolutely necessary for an order processing or for commercial purposes are not affected by a cancellation or deletion. Please understand that in case of cancellation of the personalized service can no longer be provided, since it builds on the use of customer data.
