It is important to us to protect your personal data during handling throughout the entire business process and during your visit to our website. In the following, we explain what information we collect when you visit our website and how this information is used and how we protect your personal data:
(1) Collecting and Processing Personal Data
Because of internal system-related and statistical purposes, every access to our website will be logged. The following data is logged: the name of the file, date and time of the access, transferred data volume, message about successful retrieval, web browser, requesting domain and IP address of the requesting computer. Additional personal information such as your name, address, telephone number or e-mail address is not collected unless you provide these data voluntarily, e.g. as part of a registration, survey, competition, fulfillment of contract or an information request.
(2) Use and Disclosure of Personal Data
We use the personal data which you have made available to us exclusively for technical administration of the web pages and to fulfill your wishes and requests – thus primarily for fulfillment of a contract concluded with you or to answer your request. We do not share, sell, transfer or otherwise disseminate your personal data to third parties, unless this is required for the purpose of the contract or unless you have given express consent to do so. For instance, it may be necessary to pass on your address and order data to our contractors when you order products. A given consent for the disclosure of your personal data to third parties can be withdrawn for the future at any time. Your personal data will be deleted if you withdraw your consent for storage of such data, if the storage of the data for the given purpose is no longer required, or if their storage for other legal reasons is inadmissible.
(3) Right of Access to Personal Data
Upon written request, we will inform you what personal data (e.g. name, address) we have saved on you.
We take all of the necessary technical and organizational security measures to protect your personal data from being lost or misused. Should you wish to contact us by e-mail, we would like to point out that the confidentiality of the information sent cannot be guaranteed. The contents of e-mail messages can be read by third parties. We therefore recommend you send us confidential information only by post or fax.
