Data privacy statement
The protection of your privacy and your personal data when using our web pages is important to us. This is why we adhere strictly to the provisions of the Data Protection Acts. In the following we explain which information we collect during your visit to our web pages and how this information is used.
Personal data is specific information about personal or factual characteristics relating to a certain natural person or a natural person who can be specified (e.g. your real name, your address, your telephone number and your date of birth).
Collection and processing of personal data
When you visit our web pages, for the purpose of system security we temporarily store the connection data of your computer, the web pages you visit on our website, the date and duration of the visit, the identification data of browser and operating system type and the web page from which you visit us. Additional personal information such as your name, address, telephone number or e-mail address is not collected unless you provide this information voluntarily, e.g. as part of a registration, conclusion of a contract or other information provided.
Use and disclosure of personal data
We use the personal data that you provide to us solely for administering the web pages and handling your order (processing the contract concluded with you, responding to an enquiry).
We only use this data for product-related surveys and marketing purposes if you have previously given us your consent or – as far as this is legally permissible – if you have not lodged an objection. We do not share, sell or otherwise disseminate your personal data to third parties unless this is necessary for the purposes of executing a contract or you have expressly consented to this. For example, we may need to commission forwarders with deliveries, a bank with the payment transaction or use distributors. In these cases we pass on the data in accordance with the provisions of the German Data Protection Act.
We implement technical and organisational security measures in accordance with section 9 of the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) to protect the data which you have provided against accidental or wilful manipulation, loss, destruction or access by unauthorised persons. Our security measures are improved on an ongoing basis in accordance with the development of technical standards.
All information relevant to data protection is stored exclusively on secure systems in Germany. It can only be accessed by a limited number of authorised individuals obligated to special data protection who are involved with the technical, administrative or editorial management of data.
