Personal data is data which can be used to ascertain your identity. This includes information such as your correct name, e-mail address, postal address and telephone number. It does not include information which cannot be linked with your true identity.
If online forums are made available for use by third parties, such parties receive no access to the stored personal data of forum users.
Collection of personal data
Your personal data will only be stored if you make such information available to us yourself by making enquiries or by submitting comments via e-mail.
Use of our website is generally possible without any requirement to state personal data. The only information collected is that which is submitted by your e-mail provider (especially the IP address allocated to you). This information is only stored by us during the period of your visit to the website. Any evaluation takes place solely for statistical purposes, and individual users remain anonymous.
Insofar as personal data is collected on the website, this takes place on a voluntary basis at all times wherever possible. Such data is not passed on to third parties without your express permission.
This site provides you with the opportunity to contact us by e-mail and/or via a contact form.
With regard to data to be stated on contact forms, we store your name, postal address and e-mail address until such time as your enquiry has been fully processed. We do not use your data for any purpose other than the processing of your enquiry. In sending us your information as part of using a contact form, you consent that we may store and process your name, postal address and e-mail address until such time as your enquiry has been dealt with in full.
Your attention is drawn to the fact that the transmission of data on the Internet (such as communication via e-mail) may involve gaps in security. Complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.
Right to receive information
Upon receiving a relevant request, we will be glad to notify you free of charge whether and which personal information relating to you is being stored and processed. We will correct inaccurate data if such a circumstance comes to our intention.
Our Managing Director will be happy to deal with any enquiries, explanations and queries relating to the use of data. Contact details are provided in the legal notice.
Right to withdraw consent
You have the right to withdraw consent for the use of your personal data at any time. Please contact our Managing Director by e-mail. We will then delete your data without delay. Contact details are provided in the legal notice.
Notice of withdrawal of consent or deletion are without prejudice to data used for billing and accounting purposes.
Server log files
The website provider collects data on each visit to the website. These include name of the respective website, file download, data and time of access, data quantity transmitted, browser type, browser version, operating system of the user, IP address and provider making the request.
The sole purpose of this protocol data is to facilitate statistical evaluations with the objective of improving operation and security. Protocol data can be subsequently monitored if there are any specific indications of unlawful use.
To the extent that personal data is also stored, protocol data is held separately and thus does not enable any information to be discovered regarding an identifiable person.
Passing on of personal information to third parties
Personal data is only used within the scope of orders for products and services. Such information is not passed on to third parties without your express consent. In the vent that data is passed to external service providers within the scope of a contract data processing agreement, such service providers are also bound by the German Data Protection Act and by other statutory stipulations.
Your data will be passed on to competent bodies entitled to receive such information to the extent that the data controller is required to do so by law or by dint of a court order.
Security during the processing of personal data
The data controller deploys technical and organisational security measures in order to safeguard your data against accidental or intentional manipulation, loss and destruction and to prevent unauthorised access by third parties. Our security measures undergo improvement on a continuous basis in line with technological developments.
Children and persons aged under 18 should not transmit any personal data to us without the agreement of a parent or guardian.
Links to other websites
We hereby expressly object to the third party use of contact data, which has been published in accordance with editorial requirements under law, for the transmission of advertising and information material not expressly solicited. The operators of the website further expressly reserve the right to initiate legal action in the event of unsolicited sending of advertising information, such as in the form of spam e-mails.
Publication of job advertisements/online job applications
Your application data will be electronically collected and used by us for the purpose of processing the application procedure. If your application is followed by the conclusion of a contract of employment, we may store the data transmitted in your personnel file for the purpose of the usual organisational and administrative process in compliance with the relevant legal provisions. If your job application is rejected, deletion of data transmitted by you takes place automatically two months after notification of rejection. The above does not apply if statutory requirements (such as duty to provide evidence pursuant to the General Equal Treatment Act) dictate that data should be stored for longer or if you have expressly consented to longer storage of your data in our database of potential employees.
Inclusion of services and contents of third parties
Contents from third parties, such as YouTube videos, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites may be included on our website. This always requires the providers of such content (subsequently referred to as “third party providers”) to be aware of the IP address of users. Contents cannot be sent to the browser of the respective user without an IP address. The IP address is thus necessary for the presentation of such contents. The provider makes every endeavour only to include contents if the respective third party provider only uses the IP address for the purpose of supplying the contents. Notwithstanding this, the provider has no influence on whether a third party provider stores IP addresses for purposes such as statistical evaluation. The user will be informed if the provider becomes aware that such data is being stored.
