This statement is for all visitors to our website, customers and partners and becomes important whenever we receive data about them. It does not matter whether you have become a customer or whether a contract exists between us at all. In any case, this declaration is intended to explain transparently how we handle data.
1. Responsible entity
The legally responsible entity for all issues related to data is listed on our website under “Legal notice”. You can contact the management named there or our data protection officer:
Lawyer Maximilian Conrad
A data protection officer is not bound to take instructions from management. You can also reach him by email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
2. Purpose of storage
When you create a user account with us or enter into a contract with us as a customer, we create a customer account in our system. This contains your master data, your order and, if applicable, your order number. Your billing data (“customer data”) is included. We store and process this data because otherwise we would not be able to fulfil the contract with you.
Your computer sends us your IP address when you use our websites and, depending on the type of use and your computer settings, we store small text files on your hard drive (“cookies”). We create these files to make our website work better for you. It is a kind of short-term memory for your browser.
We also create text files in our system that may contain the following information about you: Browser type and version, operating system used, the URL of the website you came from, the name of your computer and the time (“log files”). We are not able to assign the log files to specific persons. We do not combine this data with cookies or IP addresses. However, we reserve the right to subsequently evaluate this data in individual cases if we have concrete indications of unlawful use. The log files help us to understand what kind of computers our websites need to work on and when very many (or few) people use our websites. In this way, the website structure, server and database systems can be adjusted.
3. Disclosure of data to third parties
We do not process all of your data ourselves but use programs and services from other companies (“tools”). We will change the tools we use from time to time for legal, technical or commercial reasons, as we deem appropriate.
We currently use the following tools for the management and provision of data (in particular IP address, cookies and log files):
Google Analytics (website user data)
Mailchimp (contact details, emails to large groups)
Survey Monkey (contact data)
blink.it and wetransfer (Provision of course materials and documentation)
If you do not consent to the use of these tools, we may no longer be able to fulfil existing contracts between us or may have to switch to solutions that are less convenient for you.
Data is not passed on to providers or storage locations in countries outside the European Union.
4. Deletion deadlines
We retain your data until your order has been completed or until the statutory retention periods have expired. These arise primarily from the German Commercial Code (Handelsgesetzbuch), Paragraph § 257 HGB, where the retention of business documents is regulated.
You have the legal right to request information about the data we have stored at any time. If, despite our efforts to keep data correct and up to date, incorrect information about you is stored, we will correct this as soon as possible, at your request. If processing is based on your consent, you can revoke this at any time in the future.
6. Supervisory authority
If you feel that we are not fulfilling our information obligations towards you, you have the right to complain to a supervisory authority (for example, the Data Protection Commissioner of a federal state in Germany).
You are not obliged to transmit your data to us. You can therefore refuse the storage of your IP address. However, the processing of your data to the extent described above is necessary for the establishment and performance of contracts between you and us. If you revoke your consent to data processing, our service to you becomes impossible without releasing you from your contractual duties. (For this reason, you cannot revoke the storage of your customer data in the above-mentioned administration systems until the contractual relationship is terminated).
8. Change of purpose
If we intend to process your data further, for a purpose other than the one for which you provided it, we will provide you with specific information about this other purpose and our intentions before the processing occurs. You can revoke your consent to further processing at any time.
1. Liability limitation
The contents of this website are created with the greatest possible care. However, the provider does not assume any liability for the correctness, completeness and currency of the content provided. The use of the contents of the website is at the user’s own risk. Contributions identified by name reflect the opinion of the respective author and not always the opinion of the provider. The mere use of the provider’s website does not constitute any contractual relationship between the user and the provider.
2. External links
This website contains links to third-party websites (“external links”). These websites are subject to the liability of the respective operators. When the external links were first created, the provider checked the external content for any legal violations. No legal violations were apparent at that time. The provider has no influence on the current and future design and content of the linked pages. The inclusion of external links does not imply that the provider adopts the content behind the reference or link as its own. Constant monitoring of external links is not reasonable for the provider without concrete evidence of legal violations. However, if legal violations on external links become known, the links will be deleted immediately.
3. Copyright and related rights
The content published on this website is subject to German copyright and related rights law. Any use not permitted by German copyright and related rights law requires the prior written consent of the provider or the respective rights holder. This applies in particular to the copying, editing, translation, storage, processing or reproduction of content in databases or other electronic media and systems. Third-party content and rights are marked as such. The unauthorised reproduction or transmission of individual contents or complete pages is not permitted and is punishable by law. Only the production of copies and downloads for personal, private and non-commercial use is permitted. The display of this website in external frames is only permitted with written permission.
