Privacy Policy

When you visit our website the actual IP address used by your PC, the date and time, browser type, operating system of your PC, and the pages you have visited are logged. It is neither intended nor possible for us to extract personal data from this information. Personal data given to us, such as email addresses and contact details, will be used uniquely and solely for the purposes for which it was provided.  We assure you that we will not pass your personal data to third parties unless we are legally obliged to do so, or you have given your express consent. We comply fully with The Data Protection Act when we use third party services for data processing.

Duration of storage

Personal data which has been communicated to us through our website shall only be stored until the purpose for which it was entrusted to us has been fulfilled.  In order to comply with trade and tax retention periods, certain data may need to be stored for up to 10 years.

Minors

Persons below 18 years of age may neither use our websites nor submit any personal information to us without the consent of their parents or guardians. We therefore do not knowingly collect personal information from minors. Should we notice that a minor has input personal data or that data regarding a minor has been entered, this data will be immediately deleted.

Cookies

We sometimes use cookies on our websites for statistical purposes and help us to optimize our web pages based on user behaviour. Cookies are small pieces of data sent from our web server to your browser and stored there in part for later retrieval; mostly the cookies are deleted after your visit (session cookies). Other cookies remain on your computer and allow us to recognise your computer during your next visit (so-called persistent cookies).  You can decide whether cookies may access your computer by setting your browser to block them or to notify you before a cookie is saved so that it is retained only when you specifically agree. With the exception of login cookies, our cookies do not contain personal information. There is no link made between data collected via cookies and data you submit when ordering.

Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. Google Analytics uses “cookies”, text files that are stored on your computer, to help analyse how users use the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there.  Should you use IP anonymisation your IP address will be shortened to identify it as coming from within the group Member States of the European Union and European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases is the complete IP address transferred to a US Google server and then shortened. Google will use this information to evaluate use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other internet related services to the website operator. Google Analytics states that your IP address will not be associated with any other data held by Google. You may block the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser.  We would point out that you may not be able to use all features of this website to their full extent should you do so.

Freedom to information

You have free right of access to stored personal data at any time, and the right to correct, suspend access to or remove such data. Please address your request to the responsible person named in the Impressum section of this website.  Should personal data stored by us prove to be incorrect it will of course be corrected at your request.  You have the right to refuse the future storage of your personal data at any time.  Should you request that we do so, your personal data can be deleted except where the information is still required for us to fulfil contractual obligations or there are legal reasons that prevent deletion.  In this case the data access will be suspended instead of deleted.

Links to third party websites

Links provided by us are carefully researched and compiled.  We take no responsibility for the content of linked third party websites that we do not manage and cannot control.  The links are referrals from us to third parties who are responsible for their own Internet presence.  We are neither legally responsible for the correctness nor content of these websites nor for content that can be access via them. The linked sites have been checked for illegalities at the time of linking.  A permanent control of linked sites is not possible without  concrete reason to suspect  a breach of the law.  We can only be held responsible for third party content when we have positive knowledge thereof and it is technically possible and allowed for us to prevent its use.
