Data protection

 

1 Your privacy is our concern 

We appreciate your interest in our company and our products and services. We also want you to feel secure when visiting our website with regard to the protection of your personal data. Since we take the protection of your personal data very seriously, compliance with the provisions of the Federal Data Protection Act is a matter of course for us.

We want you to know when we collect specific information and how we use it. We have taken technical and organizational measures to ensure that the rules on data protection are respected both by us and by external service providers. 

2 Personal Data 

Personal information is information about your identity. This includes information such as name, address, telephone number and e-mail address. The use of our website does not require that you disclose personal data. However, in certain cases, we may need your name and address, as well as other information, so that we can provide the services you require. 

If you make use of our services, generally only such data will be collected that we need to provide the services. In the case we ask you for more information, it is given as voluntary information. The processing of personal data takes place exclusively for the fulfillment of the requested service and for the preservation of our own justified business interests.

This applies, for example, to the sending of information material and ordered goods or to the answering of individual questions. Where necessary, we will inform you accordingly. In addition, we only store and process data that you voluntarily or automatically make available to us.

3 Purpose-based use 

The provided personal data is only used for the purposes which are disclosed to you. Your data will not be sold or rented to third parties. We release your personal data to third parties only if there is an official or court order, the fulfillment of the contract or credit protection requires it or if you have given your express consent.

Our employees and the service companies commissioned by us are compelled to our secrecy and to comply with the provisions of the Federal Data Protection Act. Basically, your data will not be used for advertising or market research of third parties, unless you have expressed consent.

4 Non-personal data that is automatically collected 

For organizational and technical reasons, the following data is stored in the tracking systems "Webtrends" and "Google Analytics" (see point 6): the names of the accessed pages, the browser and the operating system used, the date and time of access, used search engines, names of downloaded files and their IP address.

We evaluate this technical data anonymously and only for statistical purposes, in order to constantly optimize our website and make our Internet offers even more attractive to you. This anonymous data does not allow conclusions to be drawn about an individual person. Your personal data and your privacy are thus protected.
