1. General Principles
We take the protection of personal data and the observance of the applicable data protection laws very seriously. In principle, our data collecting, data processing and use of data is exclusively for the handling of your request or to perform the purpose of the contract. Without your express prior declaration of consent or only when the fulfillment of contractual relations between us and you makes the transfer of data absolutely necessary, personal data are neither disclosed, left, sold or otherwise marketed to other companies or institutions. Where applicable, this particularly applies for the payment handling and its checking and processing through BS PAYONE GmbH, branch office Kiel, Frauenhoferstrasse 2-4, 24118 Kiel. For more information on BS Payone, please refer to https://www.payone.com/.
As far as our website permits the entry of personal or business data (E-mail addresses, names, postal addresses), the surrender of the data by the user is made explicitly on a voluntary basis. Also, it may be necessary to provide your company's VAT ID, as we are legally obligated to verify whether our customers are subject to VAT: We shall not use the VAT ID for any other purpose apart from the validation of this taxability.
It is controversial, whether the IP address and other data (such as browser type as well as quantity and name of the accessed files) that you leave with us when you visit our website and when you submit the contact form, represent personal data. However, we do not use these data and delete them promptly, latest one month after they have arisen.
If you would like to receive our newsletter and have entered your E-mail address in the appropriate field, you will briefly thereafter receive a short E-mail, in which you are asked to confirm your registration for the newsletter (so-called "double opt-in" process). Of course, you can unsubscribe at any time from the newsletter mailing list by sending us an E-mail or clicking on the unsubscribe link included with every newsletter E-mail.
3. Right to Personal Data
As affected party under the EU basic Regulation on Data Protection (Regulation [EU] 2016/679), the Federal Data Protection Act („BDSG“) and the Telemedia Act („TMG“), you have a right to information on your personal data, and under certain conditions, a right to the correction, blocking and deletion of your data stored in one of our files.
