Analytical and third-party tools
2. General and mandatory information
We would point out that data transmission via the Internet (e.g. in communication via e-mail) can be subject to security vulnerabilities. Complete protection of the data from third-party access at all times is therefore not possible.
Information on the data controller
The data controller for data processing on this website is:
71083 Herrenberg, Germany
Tel.: +49 7032 309020
The data controller is that natural or legal person who decides, either alone or with others, on the purpose and means of the processing of personal data (e.g. names, e-mail addresses and the like).
Revoking your consent to data processing
Many data processing procedures are possible only with your express consent.You can at any time revoke any consent you have previously given. You simply need to send us an e-mail to that effect, and no particular form is necessary. The lawfulness of the data processing operations carried out until the point of revocation will not be affected thereby.
Your right of complaint to the competent regulatory body
In the event of breaches of data protection law, the data subject has the right to complain to the competent regulatory body.The competent regulatory body for data protection matters is the data protection officer of the German federal state in which our company has its registered office. A list of the data protection officers and their contact details can be found at the following link: https://www.bfdi.bund.de/EN/Service/Contact/contact_node.html.
Your right to data portability
You have the right to require that data which we process automatically on the basis of your consent or in fulfillment of a contract be handed over to you or to a third party in a standard, machine-readable format.If you request the direct transfer of the data to another data controller, this will take place only if it is technically feasible.
SSL or TLS encryption
This site uses SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or enquiries that you send to us as the site operator. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the browser address bar changes from “http://” to “https://” and a padlock symbol appears in your browser’s address bar.
If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you send us cannot be read by third parties.
Information, blocking, erasure
Within the context of the applicable statutory provisions, you have the right of information, free of charge and at any time, concerning your stored personal data, their origin and recipients and the purpose of the data processing and, where applicable, the right to correct, block or erase these data. If you have questions concerning this or any other issue related to your personal data, you are welcome to contact us at any time at the address stated in the legal notice.
3. Data collection on our website
In certain places, our website uses what are known as cookies. Cookies will not harm your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies help us make our site more user-friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small text files which are stored on your computer by your browser.
All the cookies we use are “session” cookies. They are automatically deleted at the end of your visit.
You can set your browser to inform you of the placing of cookies and allow cookies only in individual cases, to exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or in general and to activate the automatic deletion of cookies when the browser is closed. Deactivating cookies may impair the functionality of this website.
Cookies which are required to carry out electronic communications or to provide certain functions requested by you (e.g. the shopping basket function) are stored on the basis of Art. 6 (1)(f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the storage of cookies for the purpose of the technical-error-free and optimized provision of its services.
Server log files
The provider of the site automatically collects and stores information in server log files, which your browser automatically sends to us. These are:
• Browser type and version
• Operating system used
• Referrer URL
• Host name of the computer requesting access
• Time of the server query
• IP address
These data will not be merged with other data sources.
The basis for the data processing is Art. 6 (1)(f) GDPR, which permits the processing of data for the fulfillment of a contract or pre-contractual measures.
If you send us enquiries via the contact form, your details from the enquiry form, including the contact data you provide there, will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the enquiry and in the event of follow-up questions.We will not disclose these data to others without your consent.
The data from the contact form are thus processed exclusively on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 (1)(a) GDPR). You can revoke this consent at any time.You simply need to send us an e-mail to that effect, and no particular form is necessary. The lawfulness of the data processing operations carried out until the point of revocation will not be affected thereby.
The data you enter in the contact form will remain in our possession until you request that we delete them, you revoke your consent to the storage thereof or the purpose for which the data were stored no longer applies (e.g. after your enquiry has been processed). This is without prejudice to mandatory statutory provisions — with particular reference to statutory retention periods.
Disclosure of information at the point of conclusion of a contract for online shops, dealers and mail-order companies
We disclose personal data to third parties only if this is necessary in the context of contract processing, for example to the companies entrusted with the delivery of the goods or to the credit institution commissioned with the handling of payments. No further disclosure of the data will take place; if further data disclosure is necessary, it will take place only with your express agreement. Your data will not be passed on to third parties, for example for advertising purposes, without your express consent.
The basis for the data processing is Art. 6 (1)(b) GDPR, which permits the processing of data for the fulfillment of a contract or pre-contractual measures.
On our website, we integrate the function for the recognition of bots, e.g. when entering data in online forms (“reCAPTCHA”) of the provider Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland. Google reCAPTCHA is intended to prevent misuse of data entries on our website (e.g. in a contact form) by automated programs instead of humans. For this purpose, reCAPTCHA analyzes the behavior of website visitors and sends the information necessary for analysis (including IP address, mouse movements, dwell time) to Google.
The data processing is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DS-GVO. Our legitimate interest is that we want to protect our websites from abusive spying and SPAM.
We have no influence on these processing activities.
4. Analytical tools and advertising
This website does not use tracking cookies or advertising cookies of third-party providers.
Nor are any plug-ins or tools used which have a bearing on data protection.
5. MANDATORY INFORMATION IN CASE OF CONTACT BY E-MAIL
In the case of the first contact, we are obliged in accordance with Art. 12, 13 GDPR to provide you with the following mandatory information under data protection law:
If you contact us by email, we will only process your personal data insofar as there is a legitimate interest in processing (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit.f GDPR) and you have consented to the data processing (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR), the processing is necessary for the initiation, justification, content design or change of a legal relationship between you and us (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b GDPR) or another legal norm allows processing. Your personal data will remain with us until you ask us to delete it, revoke your consent to storage or the purpose for data storage no longer applies (e.g. after your request has been processed).
Mandatory statutory provisions – in particular retention periods under tax and commercial law – remain unaffected. You have the right to receive information about the origin, recipient and purpose of your stored personal data free of charge at any time.
You also have the right to object, data portability and the right to lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority. You can also request the correction, deletion and, under certain circumstances, the restriction of the processing of your personal data.
