on this website (hereinafter referred to as the "Offer").

The legal basis for data protection can be found in the Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the Telemediengesetz (TMG).

Access Data / Server-Logfiles

The provider (or his web space provider) collects data about each access to the offer (so-called server log files). The access data includes:
Name of the website accessed, file, date and time of access, amount of data transferred, notification of successful access, browser type and version, user's operating system, referrer URL (previously visited page), IP address and requesting provider.
The provider uses the log data only for statistical evaluations for the purpose of operation, security and optimisation of the offer. However, the provider reserves the right to subsequently check the log data if there are concrete indications of justified suspicion of illegal use.

Dealing with personal date

Personal data is information that can be used to identify a natural person, i.e. information that can be traced back to a natural person. This includes the name, email address or telephone number. But also data about preferences, hobbies, memberships or which websites were viewed by someone count as personal data.

Personal data will only be collected, used and passed on by the provider if this is permitted by law, insofar as this is necessary for the entire processing of the purchase by the user, including any subsequent guarantees, and if the user consents to the collection of data. The provision of personal data is exclusively based on contractual requirements. The provider provides more detailed information on this in the general terms and conditions for customers of his online shop in Section 3) "Information duties", where the consequences of omission of consent are also named.

Personal data is also required for services. For example, the forwarding of an email address to the parcel service of the provider is necessary to enable the user to track the shipment. The data passed on in this way may only be used by our service providers to fulfil their task. Any other use of the information is not permitted and does not take place with any of the service providers entrusted by us. The processing is based on § 15 (3) TMG and Art. 6 (1) GDPR for the legitimate interest in the above mentioned purposes.

In detail, the data processing of personal data takes place on the following bases:

Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for the processing of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing of personal data..

Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR serves as a legal basis for the processing of personal data required for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures.

Insofar as the processing of personal data is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation to which we are subject, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c GDPR serves as the legal basis.

If the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our company (including the interest in ensuring the trouble-free operation of our website, to improve our services and to prevent misuse) or a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and fundamental freedoms of the person concerned do not outweigh the first interest, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing.

Consent to the processing of personal data may be revoked at any time with effect for the future (Art. 7 (3) GDPR.

Data erasure and storage duration

After complete processing of the contract, the data will first be stored for the duration of the warranty period, then under consideration of statutory, in particular tax and commercial retention periods and then deleted after expiry of the period if the user has not agreed to further processing and use.

Contact

When contacting the provider (e.g. via contact form or e-mail), the user's details are stored for the purpose of processing the enquiry and in the event that follow-up questions arise.

Comments and contributions

When users leave comments on the blog or other posts, their IP addresses are stored. This is done for the security of the provider if someone writes illegal content in comments and contributions (insults, forbidden political propaganda, etc.). In this case, the provider himself can be prosecuted for the comment or contribution and is therefore interested in the identity of the author.

Integration of third-party services and content

It may occure that contents of third parties, such as videos from YouTube, map material from Google Maps, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites are integrated within this online offer. This always presupposes that the providers of this content (hereinafter referred to as "third-party providers") perceive the IP address of the user. Without the IP address, they would not be able to send the content to the browser of the respective user. The IP address is therefore required for the presentation of this content. We make every effort to use only those contents whose respective providers only use the IP address to deliver the contents. However, we have no influence on whether the third party providers store the IP address for statistical purposes, for example. As far as this is known to us, we inform the users about it.

Registration function

The data entered during registration will be used for the purpose of using the offer. Users can be informed by e-mail about information relevant to the offer or registration, such as changes in the scope of the offer or technical circumstances. The collected data can be seen in the input mask during registration. This includes name, address, country, e-mail address and telephone number..

Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics uses "cookies", which are text files placed on the user's computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about users' use of this website is generally transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States.

However, if IP anonymisation is activated on this website, the IP address of Google users within member states of the European Union or in other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area will be shortened beforehand. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. IP anonymization is active on this website. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating the use of the website by users, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage for website operators.

Use of Facebook Social Plugins

his offer uses social plugins ("Plugins") of the social network facebook.com, which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA ("Facebook"). The plugins can be recognized by one of the Facebook logos (white "f" on a blue tile or a "thumbs up" sign) or are marked with the addition "Facebook Social Plugin". The list and appearance of the Facebook Social Plugins can be viewed here: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/.

When a user accesses a website of this offer that contains such a plugin, their browser establishes a direct connection to Facebook's servers. The content of the plugin is transmitted directly from Facebook to your browser and integrated into the website by it. The provider therefore has no influence on the extent of the data that Facebook collects with the help of this plugin and therefore informs the user in accordance with his knowledge:

By integrating the plugins, Facebook receives the information that a user has called up the corresponding page of the offer. If the user is logged in to Facebook, Facebook can assign the visit to his Facebook account. When users interact with the plug-ins, for example by clicking the Like button or posting a comment, the corresponding information is transferred directly from your browser to Facebook and stored there. If a user is not a member of Facebook, it is still possible for Facebook to find out his IP address and save it. According to Facebook, only an anonymous IP address is stored in Germany.

The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Facebook as well as the related rights and setting options to protect the privacy of users, can be found in Facebook's data protection notices: https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/.

If a user is a Facebook member and does not want Facebook to collect data about him via this offer and link it to his Facebook stored member data, he must log out of Facebook before visiting the website.

It is also possible to block Facebook social plug-ins with add-ons for your browser, for example with the "Facebook Blocker".

+1 Button from Google+

This offer uses the "+1″" button of the Google Plus social network operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States ("Google"). The button can be recognized by the sign "+1″ on a white or colored background.

When a user accesses a website of this offer that contains such a button, the browser establishes a direct connection with Google's servers. The content of the "+1″" button is transmitted by Google directly to its browser and integrated into the website by it. The provider therefore has no influence on the extent of the data that Google collects with the button. According to Google, no personal data is collected without a click on the button. Only for logged in members, such data, including the IP address, are collected and processed.

The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Google as well as your rights in this regard and setting options to protect your privacy can be found in Google's data protection information on the "+1″" button: www.google.com/intl/de/+/policy/+1button.html and the FAQ: www.google.com/intl/de/+1/button/.
