2. General notes and mandatory information
We would like to point out that data transmission on the Internet (e.g. communication by email) may have security gaps. It is not possible to completely protect data from access by third parties.
Note on responsibility body
The responsible body for data processing on this website is
D – 30161 Hanover
T +49 511 54 61 72 76
F +49 511 84 84 18 13
The responsible body is the natural or legal person who, alone or jointly with others, decides on the purposes and means of processing personal data (e.g. names, email addresses, etc.).
Withdrawal of your consent to data processing
Many data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. You can withdraw already given consent at any time. All you need to do is send us an informal message by email. The legality of the data processing carried out up to the point of withdrawal remains unaffected by the withdrawal.
Right to lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority
In the event of violations of data protection law, the data subject has a right to lodge a complain with the competent supervisory authority. The competent supervisory authority in data protection matters is the data protection commissioner of the German state in which our company has its headquarters. A list of the data protection officers and their contact details can be found at the following link: https://www.bfdi.bund.de/DE/Infothek/Anschriften_Links/anschriften_links-node.html.
Right to data portability
You have the right to have the data, which we process automatically on the basis of your consent or in fulfilment of a contract, provided to you or to a third party in a common, machine-readable format. If you request the direct transfer of the data to another responsible person, this will only take place as far as it is technically feasible.
SSL or TLS encryption
This site uses SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or enquiries that you send to us as site operator. You can recognise an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from “http://” to “https://” and by the padlock symbol in your browser line.
If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
Information, blocking, erasure
Under the applicable legislation, you have the right to free disclosure about your stored personal data, its origin and recipients and the purpose of data processing as well as a right to correction, blocking or deletion of this data at any time. You can contact us at any time at the address given in the legal notice should you have any further questions on the subject of personal data.
Objection to advertising emails
The use of contact data published under the requirement to display the publisher’s details, for the purpose of sending unsolicited advertising and information material is hereby prohibited. The website operators expressly reserve the right to legal action in case of unsolicited promotional information such as by spam emails.
3. Data collection on our website
Most of the cookies we use are “session cookies”. They are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your device until you delete them. These cookies allow us to recognise your browser the next time you visit.
Server log files
The provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in server log files, which your browser automatically sends to us. This includes:
- Browser type and version
- Operating system used
- Referrer URL
- Host name of the accessing computer
- Time of the server request
- IP address
This data is not merged with other data sources.
The basis for data processing is Article 6(1)(f) GDPR, which permits the processing of data for the fulfilment of a contract or pre-contractual measures.
If you send us enquiries via the contact form, your details from the enquiry form including the contact data you provide will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the enquiry and in the event of follow-up questions. We shall not pass on this data without your consent.
The processing of the data entered in the contact form is therefore exclusively based on your consent (Article 6(1)(a) GDPR). You can withdraw this consent at any time. All you need to do is send us an informal message by email. The legality of the data processing carried out up to the point of withdrawal remains unaffected by the withdrawal.
We will retain the data you enter in the contact form until you ask us to delete it, withdraw your consent for storage, or the purpose for which the data was stored no longer applies (e.g. after your enquiry has been processed). Mandatory statutory provisions – in particular retention periods – remain unaffected.
