General Information

Pursuant to our statutory obligations, we would like to inform you about the collection and use of your personal data.

When you use our website, personal data about you will be collected. This may happen by you entering the data yourself, for example your e-mail address. But our system also collects your data automatically, for example whenever you visit our website. This happens irrespective of the device or the software that you use to visit our website.

All data that you enter in our app is provided voluntarily; there are no disadvantages to you if you do not provide data. But without certain data, we are unable to provide services or to conclude contracts. Whenever such information is necessary, we will point it out to you.

On this website, the user’s personal data is only collected within the framework of the existing data-protection law, in particular the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The legal terms used in the text are defined in Art. 4 of the GDPR.

The GDPR allows data processing in three cases in particular:

  • in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 (a) and 7 GDPR, when you have consented to us processing your data; in this Privacy Policy and in the cases of consent pursuant to Art. 4 no. 11 GDPR, we will inform you in detail and each time for what purposes and under what circumstances your data will be processed by us;
  • in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 (b) GDPR, when processing your personal data is necessary for negotiating, concluding or performing a contract;
  • in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 (f) GDPR, if the balancing of interests leads to the conclusion that the processing is necessary to protect our legitimate interests; this means in particular our interests to analyse, optimise and secure the offers on our website – meaning primarily the analysis of user behaviour, setting up profiles for advertisement purposes and storage of access data as well as the use of third-party providers.

Advertisements

Before sending you advertisements, we will ask for your explicit consent pursuant to Art. 4 no. 11 GDPR, except in cases of advertisements for similar products to the one you already acquired. This will happen in particular when you grant us consent to mail our newsletter or when you fill out a contact form.

You may withdraw your consent at any time in accordance with the subsequent section “Consent”.

INSOFAR AS WE USE YOUR PERSONAL DATA FOR DIRECT MARKETING, YOU MAY ALSO OBJECT TO THE USE OF YOUR DATA FOR THAT PURPOSE AT ANY TIME. THIS MAY BE DONE THROUGH ANY OF OUR MEANS OF CONTACT, PARTICULARLY BY E-MAIL TO THE E-MAIL ADDRESS LISTED IN THE “ABOUT US” SECTION WITHOUT ANY FORMAL REQUIREMENTS. WE WILL THEN NO LONGER USE YOUR DATA FOR DIRECT MARKETING.

Consent

Whenever we ask you for your consent for the processing of your data, we will inform you in clear language and in an easily accessible way about the cases for which you will be granting your consent. Any consent that we ask you for is voluntary. Any advantage that you wish to gain by granting consent is also available without consent; simply ask us.

Regarding any consent, you have the right to revoke any consent given to us for the processing of your personal data at any time. You just need to contact us without any particular formal requirement, for example through our contact form, an e-mail to the e-mail address indicated in the “About Us” section or a link to unsubscribe (if offered by us). Your withdrawal has no effect on the legality of the data processing carried out up to that point.

Storage Period

Your data will generally only remain stored for as long as the purpose of the relevant data processing requires it. Storage beyond that is mainly possible when it is still necessary for us to pursue our rights or for our other legitimate interests or if we are compelled by law to keep your data stored (for example based on tax-law requirements to maintain files, which is generally 6 years, but may last up to 10 years).

Cookies

Cookie Opt-In

Upon opening the website, we have asked you to consent to the storing of certain cookies. Based on your consent pursuant to Art 6 para. 1 (a) GDPR, our website thus uses cookies, so that our offer can be used in a better, more effective and more secure way. Cookies are text files which are stored on your computer and which save certain data about your user behaviour on our page, so that, for example, an offer can be made to you based on your previous usage. These can be so-called “session cookies”, which will be automatically deleted at the end of your visit to our website. But there are also cookies that will be stored on your computer permanently, unless you delete them. This allows us to recognise your browser when you access our website the next time and to present you with offers that correspond to your previous use of our website.

You may withdraw your consent at any time and without any formal requirement, for example through an e-mail to the e-mail address listed in the “About Us” section or via the contact form. Your browser also allows you to prevent the use of cookies in general or in a specific situation. Please refer to the user manual of your browser for further details. See some examples below:

Transfer of data

Transfer to Third Parties

We dislike spam as much as you do. We will therefore not transfer your data to third parties, unless permitted by law.

Transfer of customer data may either

  • be required for the performance of a contract and in that case be permitted according to Art. 6 para. 1 (b) GDPR, or
  • be permitted based on our legitimate interest in an effective service structure pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 (f) GDPR, or
  • covered by your consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 (a) GDPR, or
  • become necessary if we will be legitimately asked by a government or an agency to hand over your data pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 (c) GDPR.

If your data are transferred to third parties, this is mentioned in this privacy policy.

Transfer to other countries, particularly USA

Our website uses external providers located outside of the EU for different features. In particular, the use of cookies, active Java scripts and other technology can lead to processing and storage of your data outside of the EU. But we will not transfer your data to a third country, unless the EU Commission has determined that there is a similar level of data protection as in the EU or unless you have provided us with your informed consent or we have agreed on the standard contractual clauses for the protection of your data with the provider. Regarding the USA, the Privacy Shield Agreement – see https://www.privacyshield.gov/welcome – has re-established sufficient data protection under certain conditions.

You will find more information about your rights in the case of each of the data transfers to the USA mentioned subsequently at https://ec.europa.eu/justice/data-protection/document/citizens-guide_en.pdf.

Users‘ Rights

Information

You may request us anytime to provide information about the personal data stored about you free of charge. To avoid misuse, this will require personal identification.

Changes to the Privacy Policy

If and when factual or legal reasons will compel us to amend the Privacy Policy, we will update this page accordingly. This will not change the consent provided by the user.

Data Entry

Contact Forms

Type of forms

General contact form

When you fill out a contact form or when you send us an e-mail or another electronic message, your information will be stored for the processing of the request, for possible follow-up questions or for other related questions and will only be used to follow up with the request.

Your data will be transferred in an encrypted manner, preventing third parties from reading your data while it is being entered.

Basis for this storage is your consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 (a) GDPR, which you grant us by filling in the contact form or by your other requests. You may revoke this consent at any time, you just need to contact us without any particular formal requirement (for example in the contact form or by e-mail). This withdrawal has no effect on the legality of the data processing that has occurred up to that point.

Your data remains stored for as long as the processing of the request requires, in particular as long as the storage is still necessary to perform the contract, to pursue our rights or for our other legitimate interests or we are compelled by law to keep your data stored (for example based on tax-law requirements to maintain files).

 

Blog / Comments

Comments

If you comment something on our page, we will save your IP address to make sure that only lawful comments will be published. After reviewing and allowing the comment by us, this data will be deleted. We will also save your comment as well as the information entered together with it (for example user name or e-mail address).

Basis for this storage is your consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 (a) GDPR, which you provide to us by filling in the comment field. You may revoke this consent at any time, you just need to contact us without any particular formal requirement (for example by unsubscribing, contact form or e-mail). This withdrawal has no effect on the legality of the data processing that has occurred up to that point.

Your data remains stored for as long as the comment is saved, for as long as required for us to pursue our rights or for our other legitimate interests or for as long as we are required by law to keep your data.

Gravatar

With the standard settings, WordPress also uses Gravatar to attribute an avatar to you. In that process, your IP address is transmitted. For reasons of data protection, we have deactivated the Gravatar feature.

Newsletter

Mail Chimp

If you subscribe to the newsletter offered on our website, we will inform you in detail about the information you will receive, which of your data will be stored and what it will be used for. We will not pass on your data to third parties and we will only use it to mail the newsletter.

We will only mail you the newsletter if you have given us your prior permission. To that purpose, you will receive an e-mail from us with a link and further instructions and our request for your consent. By clicking on this link, you declare your consent to receiving the newsletter and our advertising.

The basis for the storage is your consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 (a) GDPR, which you grant to us by registering for the newsletter. You may revoke this consent at any time, you just need to contact us without any particular formal requirement (for example through the contact form or an e-mail or the unsubscribe button in each e-mail). This withdrawal has no effect on the legality of the data processing that has occurred until that point.

Because we are legally obligated to record your permission as part of the so-called double opt-in, your order of the newsletter, the mailing of our e-mail of consent and your consent by clicking on the link will be recorded and saved with location and time as well as with your IP address.

For mailing the newsletter, we use (based on our legitimate interest in a technologically perfect processing of our customer information and analysis) the provider MailChimp (Rocket Science Group, LLC, 675 Ponce De Leon Ave NE #5000, Atlanta, GA 30308, USA) from the USA.

Thus, your data is forwarded to the USA, but MailChimp is registered with Privacy Shield and obligated to respect the EU data protection rules. You will find further information about your rights thereunder at

http://ec.europa.eu/justice/data-protection/document/citizens-guide_en.pdf.

In our newsletter, we will also explicitly ask you to provide your consent to transferring data to MailChimp and to the USA. You will declare that consent by clicking on the link, but you may revoke it at any time. For the handling of your data at MailChimp, we refer you to the Privacy Policy of MailChimp at: https://mailchimp.com/legal/privacy/.
MailChimp will only use your data for mailing the newsletter and for evaluating that mailing on our behalf. In addition to that, MailChimp will only use your data to improve their own service. But MailChimp will not use the data to contact you directly or to pass on your data to third parties.

The data used by MailChimp contains a “web beacon“, which will inform MailChimp about the opening of the newsletter and/or the clicking on a link contained therein by you. As part of that process, information regarding your browser, your location and your IP address will be transmitted to MailChimp. This information will be used to optimise our communication with you.

Our newsletter provider will also use this data, but only in a pseudonymous form (meaning that they cannot identify you) to analyse and optimise their own services. Your data will never be used by the newsletter provider in order to contact you.

Your data will remain stored for as long as you are stored in our mailing list, the storage is required to enforce our rights or it is necessary for our legitimate interest or we are required by law to keep your data.
