The owner of this website is responsible for processing your personal information. Details on the company can be found in the imprint. We take the protection of your personal data very seriously. Your personal data will be treated confidentially and in line with both the data protection laws as well as the provisions set out in this data protection declaration. It is possible to use our website without submitting your personal data. If you are asked to give personal data (e.g., name, postal address, or e-mail address), this is always – as far as possible – still on a voluntary basis.
1. Processing partners, recipients
We process your data in cooperation with processing partners who support us in providing our services (e.g., web-hosting, e-mail newsletter distribution). These processing partners are committed to handling your data in a strictly confidential way and may not use your personal data for any other purpose than providing our services. Your personal data will only be passed on to service providers such as banks (if you receive money transfers), tax advisors (if you are part of our accounting), distributors (if you receive mail from us), etc.
2. SSL- or TLS-ecnryption
This site uses SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and for the protection of the transmission of confidential content, such as the inquiries you send to us as the site operator. You can recognize an encrypted connection in your browser's address line when it changes from "http://" to "https://" and the lock icon is displayed in your browser's address bar. If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transfer to us cannot be read by third parties.
Once you have filled in and sent a contact form, your personal data provided will be processed by the person responsible in order to answer your inquiry based on the consent you have given by submitting the contact form. There is no legal or contractual obligation to provide personal data. Choosing not to provide personal data simply means that your inquiry will not be sent to us, and we will not be able to process it.
You have the right to withdraw your consent in writing at any time form. This withdrawal of consent shall have no impact on the legality of data processing activity up to a point in time when consent was withdrawn.
4. E-Mail Newsletter
By clicking on the checkbox you agree to the abovementioned personal data being used by the person responsible for data protection to send you an e-mail newsletter based on your consent (subject to objection and/or withdrawal of consent). There is no legal or contractual obligation to provide personal data. Not providing personal data will only result in you not receiving the e-mail newsletter. You have the right to withdraw your consent at any time in written form or by clicking on the relevant link. This withdrawal of consent shall have no impact on the legality of data processing activity up to the point in time when consent was withdrawn. In the same way you can also revoke consent for your personal data to be used for the purposes of direct advertising. In this case your personal data will no longer be used for direct advertising in the form of an e-mail newsletter.
5. Push notifications from PushPanda.io
We use browser push notifications from PushPanda.io. Browser push notifications are notifications that can be displayed on your terminal device without opening the website or the relevant app. No distinctive user data, such as IP addresses or similar, that could allow the user in question to be identified, are saved. If somebody registers for the notification distributor (opt-in process), only an identification code and the geographical IP information (country and state) of the user are sent to PushPanda.io and stored in its database. This code is issued by the respective browser provider (Google, Mozilla, Apple, etc.) and enables the notifications to be sent to the relevant browser later. Notifications are sent by the browser provider itself. If the opt-in for push notifications is withdrawn (opt-out), all data saved with PushPanda.io is deleted and the identification code will be invalid
