Our company takes the protection of personal data very seriously. We would like you to know when we store certain data and how we use them. In processing and handling personal data, we comply with the requirements of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the new Federal Data Protection Act (Bundesdatenschutzgesetz, BDSG).
For the use of our website, a disclosure of personal data is generally not required. With each access of one of our pages, data about your visit of the internet page will be stored in a log file. Our web host will make these log files and processed usage statistics available to us.
This data is not personal; therefore, we are not able to retrace which data was accessed by which user. No transfer to third parties takes place. We would like to note that there may be security gaps when transferring data via the internet (e.g. when communicating via e-mail). It is not possible to completely protect data from third party access.
On a case-by-case basis, we may require personal data for certain offers and services. The data which in this case is voluntarily submitted by you – for example via e-mail – is only used by us for the purpose requested by you, for example to contact you. No transfer to third parties takes place.
Server Log Files
The website provider automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files which are automatically submitted to us through your browser. These are:
- Browser type
- Browser version
- Time of server request
- IP address
The pooling of such data with other data sources will not be carried out. The data is automatically deleted after 90 days.
“Cookies” are small files which allow us to store information which refers to you, the user, on your computer. Cookies support us in determining user frequency and the number of users of our internet pages and to design our offers to you in the most comfortable and efficient manner.
We use so-called “session cookies” which are exclusively cached for the duration of your use of one of our internet pages. We also use “permanent cookies” to record information about visitors who repeatedly access our internet pages. The purpose of the use of these cookies is to be able to offer you optimal user prompting as well as to “recognize” you and to present you with a varied website and new contents in case of repetitive use. The content of a permanent cookie is limited to an identification number. Name, IP address etc. will not be stored. There will be no creation of an individual profile through your usage behaviour.
You can use our offering without cookies. You can deactivate the storage of cookies in your browser, limit it to certain websites or change your browser settings to be notified if a cookie is sent. You can delete cookies from your computer’s hard disk at any time (Folder: “Cookies”). However, please note that you may experience a restricted display of the website and restricted user prompting.
Rights of Data Subjects
Pursuant to Art. 15 et seq. GDPR, data subjects have the right to information, rectification, erasure, restriction and to object to processing of their data.
In addition, data subjects have the right, pursuant to Art. 13 para. 2 point c GDPR, to withdraw consent to the future processing of personal data if the processing is based on Art. 6 para. 1 a or Art. 9 para. 2 a GDPR. The lawfulness of the processing performed on the basis of the consent until withdrawal remains unaffected.
However, a withdrawal usually results in non-fulfilment of the purpose of the collection of such data. These rights must be exercised in writing. Please contact us via e-mail at email@example.com
Erasure of Personal Data
Personal data will be erased once the purpose of storing ends and the retention of such data is not required by legal provision (e.g. concerning the statutory retention period). The requirements of Art. 17 GDPR in conjunction with Section 35 BDSG shall apply. Unless the erasure on the basis of statutory, contractual reasons or reasons under commercial or, respectively, tax law is not possible, the processing of data may be restricted on the data subject’s request. This right must be exercised in writing.
The Data Subject’s Right to Data Portability
The company ensures the right to data portability pursuant to Art. 20 GDPR. Every data subject has the right to receive a copy of his pb-data in a common machine-readable file format.
