The protection and safety of personal data are of high priority for us. For this reason, we collect, store and use your personal data in strict compliance with the effective data protection laws. In this declaration, we would like to inform you about which kinds of data we process for which reasons and which rights you have.
1. Anonymised data collection and processing on this website
When visiting this website, our web server automatically collects log file data and stores them in an internal protocol file, which is transferred to us via your browser. This applies to the following data:
- Type and version of the browser used,
- Type and version of the operating system used,
- URL of the website that referred you to us,
- IP address of the requesting computer,
- Search terms through which you found our website,
- Date and time of retrieving our website,
- Name of the retrieved subpages.
These data are collected and processed in anonymised form, which means: They cannot be assigned to one specific person. The purpose of the data collection and processing is the analysis for internal system-related and statistical reasons. Data are not passed on to third parties, neither for commercial nor non-commercial reasons, unless there is a legal obligation that necessitates the disclosure.
2. Pseudonymised data collection and processing on this website
If you registered on our website, we keep collecting and storing the abovementioned data from your retrieval of our webpages in pseudonymised form. This means: These data are solely associated with an internal label but not with your name or any other identification marks. An allocation of the data to your person does not take place. The reason for collecting and processing the data in pseudonymised form is the preparation of user profiles, which allow us to arrange our offers and our advertising needs-oriented for you.
If you do not wish for the creation of user profiles, you can object to that. More details concerning the exercise of the right of opposition can be found under “right of objection and revocation”.
For our webpages, we use so-called “session cookies” in order to ease the use of our webpages for you. Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer and saved by your browsers. By setting cookies, our webserver is able to recognise your browser, your individual settings in our webpages and, if applicable, parts of the login details in encrypted form, ease the use of our webpages this way and allow for an automated login. These cookies neither retrieve information stored about you on your hard drive nor impair your computer or your files. Most browsers are configured to automatically allow cookies. Via your browser settings, you have the option to decline cookies, delete cookies from your computer, block cookies or be asked before the setting of a cookie. The cookies set by us are deleted from your computer after every session.
4. Use of your personal data
We use your email address in order to complete a registration process on our webpages through a verification email as well as in order to send verification emails concerning the orders you placed.
Personal data are only collected or processed if you provide these information voluntarily, e.g. within the scope of a request. The personal data at our disposal are secured by taking all technical and organisational security measures in such a way that they are, based on the current state of technology, inaccessible for unauthorised third parties. When sending very sensitive data or information, it is still recommendable to resort to e.g. the mailing route alternatively, as a full data security cannot be guaranteed via email.
For the communication of our newsletter or other offers interesting to you, we use your email address, also only if you issued consent concerning this matter. You have the option of revoking your consent and to terminate the receipt of newsletters and emails of our company at all times. More details concerning the exercise of the right of opposition can be found under “right of objection and revocation”.
