Protecting your personal data is very important to us. As far as we collect, process or use personal information about you as part of the services provided, we do so in accordance with the relevant German and European data protection laws.
As part of the order process, we ask you for personal information such as name, address, email address and phone no. We use this data only for the execution and completion of the contract. In case the service is provided by us the data is forwarded to this third party for the same use. After the contract process has been completed your data is locked and after the legally necessary storage and retention period for tax purposes this data will be deleted.
During every visit to our site, usage data will be transmitted by the respective Internet browser and stored in server log files.
The log file data is analysed anonymously to further improve our offers, to make the site easier to use, to detect and to fix errors more quickly and to control server capacity.
Cookies and Google Analytics
We also use the online advertising programme Google AdWords and conversion tracking, which is part of Google Adwords. Google Conversion Tracking is an analysis service provided by Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; “Google”). When you click on an advert displayed by Google, a cookie for conversion tracking is stored on your computer. These cookies expire after 30 days, do not contain any personal data and are therefore not used for personal identification.
If you visit certain pages of our website and the cookie has not yet expired, we and Google will be able to see that you clicked on the advert and were brought to this page. Every Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. This ensures that cookies cannot be tracked on the websites of AdWords customers.
The information collected by means of the conversion cookie is used to compile conversion statistics for AdWords customers who have opted for conversion tracking. These statistics show the customer the total number of users who have clicked on their advert, and which of those customers have been redirected to a page equipped with a conversion tracking tag. However, they do not contain any information that can be used to personally identify users.
Facebook Social Plug-Ins
Our website uses the sign-up and log-in function and social plug-ins of the social network facebook.com, which is operated by Face Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA. If you have your normal place of residence in the European Union, the Facebook services are offered to you by Facebook Ireland Limited, Hanover Reach, 5-7 Hanover Quay, Dublin 2 Ireland. The social plug-ins are discernible by the Facebook logos (white “f” on blue background or the characteristic Facebook thumb) or marked by the addition “Facebook Social Plug-In”; all Facebook plug-ins can be viewed here. The sign-up and/or log-in of Facebook is also easy to recognize by the characteristic white script on a blue background.
When you call up a website of ours on which a social plug-in (like button) is implemented, your browser will then establish a direct link to Facebook and will then transmit the following data to Facebook directly:
