You have the right have the data which we process automatically on the basis of your consent or for the purpose of fulfilling a contract transmitted to yourself or to a third party in a machine-readable format.

SSL/TLS encryption

For reasons of security and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or enquiries which you send us as the webpage operator, this page uses SSL/TLS encryption. You can identify an encrypted connection from the address line of your browser is switching from “http://” to “https://” and from the padlock symbol in your browser line.

If the SSL/TLS encryption is activated, data which you transfer to us cannot be read by third parties.

Information, erasure and correction

Right to restriction of processing

You have the right to request that the processing of your data be restricted and can contact us at any time for this purpose using the address given in the imprint. The right to obtain restriction on processing applies in the following cases:

  • If you contest the accuracy of the personal data we generally need time to verify this. During the period when verification is being carried out, you have the right to obtain restriction on the processing of your personal data.
  • If the processing of your personal data was/is unlawful, you may request that, instead of the erasure of your data, their processing is restricted.
  • If we no longer need the personal data for the purposes of the processing, but you require them for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims, you have the right to request that, instead of the erasure of your data, their processing is restricted.
  • If you have objected to processing pursuant to Article 21 (1) your interests and ours must be weighed up. For the period pending the decision on whose interests override, you have the right to request that, instead of the erasure of your data, their processing is restricted.

Cookies

Our webpages use what are known as “cookies”. Cookies are small text files, and do not cause any damage on your device. They are either stored temporarily for the duration of a session (session cookies) or permanently (permanent cookies) on your device. Session cookies are automatically deleted when you leave our website. Permanent cookies remain stored on your device until you yourself delete them or automatic deletion is carried out by your web browser.

Cookies can also partly be stored by third-party enterprises on your device when you visit our webpage (third-party cookies). These cookies enable us or you to use certain services of the third-party enterprise (e.g., cookies for handling payment services).

Cookies have various functions. Numerous cookies are technically necessary as certain website functions would not work without them (e.g., shopping cart functions or the display of videos). Other cookies serve the purpose of analysing user behaviour or displaying adverts.

Technically necessary cookies (e.g., shopping cart cookies) are saved on the basis of Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR. We have a legitimate interest in storing cookies to ensure the technically smooth and optimised provision of our services. Other cookies are only stored with your consent based on Art 6 (1) (a) GDPR. Consent can be revoked at any time in the future.

You can set your browser so that you are informed about cookies being placed on your device and only allow cookies in the individual case, generally exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases, or activate the automatic deleting of cookies when the browser is closed. If cookies are deactivated, the functionality of this website may be limited.

In as much as cookies are used by third-party enterprises or for the purpose of analyses, we will inform you separately in the context of this Privacy Statement and, if appropriate, ask for your consent.

Server log files

The provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in what are known as server log files which your browser automatically transfers to us. This includes:

  • Browser type and browser version
  • Operating system in use
  • Referrer URL
  • Host name of the accessing computer
  • Time of the server query
  • IP address

 

Combining these data with other data sources does not take place.

These data are collected on the basis of Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the technically smooth display and optimisation of its website. Server log files must be collected for this purpose.

Contact form

If you send us enquiries using our contact form, the information you provide in the form, including the contact data you indicate in it, are used for the purpose of processing the enquiry and, in the event of subsequent questions, stored by us. We do not pass on these data without your consent.

Processing these data is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR if your enquiry concerns the fulfilment of a contract or is necessary for carrying out measures prior to entering into a contract. In all other cases, processing is based on our legitimate interest in the effective processing of enquiries addressed to us (Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR) or on your consent (Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR) if this consent was requested.

The data you provide in the contact form remains with us until you request us to erase them, revoke your consent to the storage, or the purpose of data storage no longer applies (e.g., once the processing of your enquiry has been completed). Mandatory legal provisions – in particular, retention periods – remain unaffected.

Enquiry via email, telephone or telefax

If you contact us via email, telephone or telefax, your enquiry, including all personal data (name, enquiry) arising from this contact, is stored with us and processed for the purpose of handling your request. We do not pass on these data without your consent.

Processing these data is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR if your enquiry concerns the fulfilment of a contract or is necessary for carrying out measures prior to entering into a contract. In all other cases, processing is based on your consent (Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR) and/or our legitimate interests (Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR) as we have a legitimate interest in the effective processing of the enquiries addressed to us.

The data you send to us in contact enquiries remain with us until you request us to erase them, revoke your consent, or the purpose for storing the data longer applies (e.g., upon completion of processing your request). Mandatory legal provisions – in particular, legal retention periods – remain unaffected.

  1. Plugins and tools

Google Maps (with consent)

This website uses Google Maps by way of an API. The provider is Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

In order to guarantee data protection on this website, Google Maps is deactivated when you visit this website for the first time. A direct connection to the servers of Google is only established if you activate Google Maps yourself (consent in accordance with Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR). Your data are therefore prevented from being transmitted to Google when you first visit the webpage.

After Google Maps has been activated, it will store your IP address. This is then generally sent to a Google server in the US and stored there. The provider of this webpage has no influence on this data transmission after Google Maps has been activated.

You can find more information on the handling of user data in Google’s privacy policy: https://policies.google.com/privacy?english.

Google reCAPTCHA

We use “Google reCAPTCHA” (hereinafter, “reCAPTCHA”) on this website. The provider is Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

reCAPTCHA is designed to check whether data input on this website (e.g., in a contact form) is being made by human or by an automated program. With this in mind, reCAPTCHA analyses the behaviour of the website visitor based on various attributes. The analysis starts automatically as soon as the website visitor accesses the website. In the analysis process, reCAPTCHA analyses the various pieces of information (e.g., IP address, session duration of the website visitor on the website or mouse movements made by the user). The data collected in the analysis process is sent to Google.

The reCAPTCHA analysis runs completely in the background. Visitors to the website are not made aware that an analysis is taking place.

The saving and analysis of data is made on the basis of Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR. A website operator has a legitimate interest in protecting its web offers against malicious, automated espionage and spam. Inasmuch as consent is requested (e.g., consent to store cookies), processing takes place exclusively on the basis of Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR; consent can be revoked as any time.

More information on Google reCAPTCHA can be found in Google’s privacy policy and Google’s terms of service at the following links: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en and https://policies.google.com/terms?hl=en.
