Data protection

The operators of this site take their obligation to protect your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data as confidential, and handle it in accordance with data protection legislation and the provisions of this Privacy Policy at all times.

When you use this website, we will collect various personal data from you. Personal data is defined as any data that can be used to identify you personally. This Privacy Policy explains what data we collect and how we use it, as well as how and why we collect it.

Please be aware that the Internet is not a secure system for transferring data (for example, by e-mail). It is impossible to protect your data completely against access by third parties.

The Controller is defined as the natural or legal entity which, alone or together with other parties, determines how personal data (such as names, e-mail addresses, etc.), is processed, and for what purpose.

Revoking your consent to data processing

A lot of data processing activities can only be carried out with your permission. You can revoke any permission you may have given at any time. You do not need to fill in a form to do this; all you need to do is send us a simple e-mail stating that you wish to revoke your consent. The legality of any data processing that has already been carried out by the time you revoke your consent will remain unaffected.

In the event of any breaches of data protection law, data subjects have the right to lodge a complaint with the relevant supervisory authority. The relevant supervisory authority for data protection issues is the Data Protector Officer for the German Federal State in which our company’s registered office is located.

Right to data portability

You have the right to obtain personal data we have collected on the basis of your consent, or in the course of performing a contract, in a structured, commonly-used and machine readable format, or for the data concerned to be issued to a third party in such a format. If you ask us to transfer data to another Controller, we will do so to the extent this is technically feasible.

SSL/ TLS encryption

For reasons of security, and to protect transfers of confidential data (such as orders or enquiries you send to us as the site operator), this site uses SSL and/or TLS encryption. When you are using an encrypted connection, the “http://” in your browser’s address bar will change to “https://”, and the padlock symbol will appear. If SSL/TLS encryption is active, data you send to us cannot be read by any third parties.

Right of access, right to restrict processing, right of erasure

According to the applicable statutory provisions, you have the right to access any personal information we hold about you, including information about its origin and recipients, and the purpose for which it was collected.
