We thank you for your interest in our online appearance. Protecting your personal data is especially important to us. We would like to subsequently inform you extensively about our handling of them. Naturally, all legal regulations of the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG), the German Teleservices Act (TMG) as well as of other data privacy regulations will are complied with.
Collection and processing of data
It is not an essential requirement of our online services to give personalised data. Only access data that is not linked to individuals is saved, e.g. the name of your internet provider, the page from which you are visiting us, the names of the requested files and the dates of the requests. This data is only analysed for the improvement of our services, and does not allow for any conclusions regarding your person.
Personalised data is only used if you transmit it to us voluntarily. This can happen as part of an order, when creating a customer account or when registering for our newsletter.
Use and circulation of personalised data
If you commission us with delivering a service or with sending goods, your personal data will only be used as far as is necessary for the performance of the service or the completion of the contract, unless you separately consent.
This especially includes transfer of data to shipping companies, credit institutes, or other services used for the rendering of the service or the completion of the contract.
When the contract is completely concluded, your data is restricted from further use, and after the expiration of the tax and commercial law retention periods, unless you have expressly consented to further use of the data.
If you have registered for our newsletter with your e-mail address, it will be used for advertising purposes until you deregister. Deregistration is possible at any time.
To provide an attractive internet presence, and to enable the use of certain functions, some of our sites use so-called “cookies”. Cookies are small text files stored on your computer. After the browser session has ended, most of the cookies used by us will be removed from your hard drive again (“session cookies”). The so-called “permanent cookies”, however, will remain on your computer, enabling us to recognize you at your next visit. Our partners are not allowed to collect, process or use personalised data via cookies from our website.
You have the option do prevent cookies from being saved on your computer through the according browser settings, limiting, however, the functional extent of our services.
Using Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web-analysis service of Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, text files saved on your computer enabling an analysis of your usage of the website. The information on your use of the website (including your IP address) created by the cookie is transmitted to a Google server in the USA, and saved there. Google will use that information to analyse your usage of the website, to create reports on website activity for the website operators, and to render other services connected to website and internet usage. Google might also transfer this information to third parties, insofar as it is legally mandated or insofar third parties process this data on behalf of Google. Google will in no way connect your IP address with other Google data. You can prevent the installation of cookies by way of the according setting in your browser software; we would like to indicate, however, that you might not be able to use all functions of the website to their complete extent in that case. By using this website, you agree to the processing of the data collected on you by Google in the way described and for the purpose stated above.
You can object to the collection and storage of your data at any time with effect for the future. In light of the discussions on using analytical tools with complete IP addresses, we would like to note that IP addresses on this website will only be processed in a shortened form to eliminate any possibility of linking them to individuals, as we are using Google Analytics with the extension “_anonymizeIp()”.
