We are pleased that you are interested in our company and its products and services.
It is important to us when you visit our internet pages, that you feel secure in relation to data protection. As a matter of course, we observe the provisions of the Federal Data Protection Act and the Telemedia Act. Your data protection is important to us and you should know if we collect your personal data and how we make use of it. We have therefore taken technical and organisational steps to guarantee that data protection rules are observed and complied with not just by ourselves but also by external service providers.
Under § 3 paragraph 1 of the Federal Data Protection Act, personal data is defined as any information concerning the personal or material circumstances of an identified or identifiable individual (the data subject) which allow conclusions to be made about their personal, economic or actual circumstances. These include for example name, address, telephone number, email address. For the use of our internet site it is not basically required to divulge personal data. Only in certain cases we require your name and address as well as other details so that we can provide the requested services.
We obviously require your data for the dispatch of requested information and ordered goods as well as for answering individual questions. We will notify you accordingly if your personal data is required. When the services of our company are used, we will in general only collect such data as is required to provide the services. If we request further data from you, you will be supplying this on a voluntary basis. The processing of personal data takes place exclusively for the performance of requested services and for the protection of one’s own justifiable commercial interests. Persons under 18 should not pass on to us their personal data without the consent of their parents or guardians. We do not require any kind of personal data for children or young people and do not collect this or pass it on to a third party.
Purpose and limitations on use
We expressly point out that your personal data will neither be sold to a third party nor otherwise marketed. Any service provider companies appointed by us will likewise comply with the above data protection rules.
We will use your personal data to answer your questions, process your orders or to provide you with access to our information or offers.
