As a company committed to your privacy, we are particularly committed to protecting it and we therefore not only adhere to legal requirements strictly, but have set ourselves even higher internal policies.
One of the principles we strictly adhere to is that of data minimization. Therefore, we only collect data that is used directly for business development and do not keep it “on stock” for big data analysis. Find out more about the individual data we collect and how we deal with it below in full detail.
We will be happy to answer your questions concerning data privacy and are looking forward to your email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We ourselves collect and process only two types of personal data on our website:
Furthermore, we refer to our presences on the social media services Facebook and Twitter and for the user forum the site UseResponse.com. However, these record information about you only after clicking on corresponding icons / play buttons. For more information on the data collected by these sites, please refer to the privacy statements of the corresponding sites (see corresponding section in the Privacy Statement below).
Unlike on most websites that you visit, we ask for your explicit permission to confidentially collect anonymous web analytics data on your visit history. We use this data solely to identify problems on our website and to constantly improve our web offer.
For data acquisition and processing of web analytics data, we use the web analytics system of the German provider “etracker GmbH” (www.etracker.com).
We count on etracker, as it is firstly a Germany based web analytics company whose technology has been tested by the responsible data protection authority and is continuously developed for better data protection. Secondly, because etracker has no rights to the data collected on our website and does not use it for further purposes.
What does that mean for you?
Only pseudonymous data is collected. This means that we will never connect the data collected to personal data or attempt to put the data into a personal reference.
The personal information we collect belongs only to us and will not be further processed by etracker for other purposes or supplemented with further data. In particular, the data of etracker will not be used for advertising purposes and no cross-site user profiles shall be created.
All data is stored in Germany and is therefore subject to the strict German and European data protection laws and standards.
We appreciate your interest in our website and our products and services.
Of course, protecting your personal data during collection, processing and use while you visit our websites is very important to us. With the following statement, we are fulfilling our legal obligation to provide information and to inform you about the data that we store, the type of data, its purpose, as well as our identity. We also inform you about the initial transmission and the type of data transmitted.
The object of the data protection is personal data. This is specific information about personal or factual circumstances of an identified or identifiable natural person. For example, your name, postal address, email address as well as usage data like the IP address of a computer.

Basically, the use of our website does not require the collection or transmission of personal data.
The processing or use of personal data occurs only when providing one’s personal data voluntarily. This may be necessary in the following cases:
(1) Requests and contractual fulfillment
We collect and process your personal data only to the extent necessary, as long as these requests have to do with contract-related inquiries and other individual transactions.
We use the data you provide to fulfill our contractual obligations to you and for the fulfillment of contracts concluded between us and you. It may be necessary to disclose your personal information to companies that we use to provide a service or for contract execution. These are, for example, email marketing service-providers, logisticians or other service providers.
(2) Newsletter / email address
If you subscribe to a newsletter or if you have provided your email address to subscribe to the latest information from us, we store your email address as well as your voluntarily provided additional personal information (name, first name, title) for sending emails. This information is processed and stored in Germany on our behalf by www.cleverreach.com. Any other use or distribution to third parties will take place only if you expressly agree to this, in accordance with legal provisions.
Morover, on this site, data for marketing and optimization purposes is collected and stored using technologies of etracker GmbH (www.etracker.com). From this data, user profiles can be created under a pseudonym. Cookies may also be used for this. The data collected with etracker technologies will not be used without the explicit consent of the person concerned and not used to personally identify visitors to this website and will not be merged with personal data about the bearer of the pseudonym. You may opt-out of data collection with future effect.
(4) Disclosure to state institutions and authorities
We provide data to authorized state institutions and authorities only within the framework of statutory obligations or pursuant to a court decision thereof.
(5) Social Networks and User Forum
You can request information about the data stored by us about yourself, including any relating to the origin of the data, recipients or categories of recipients the data is disclosed to and the purpose of storage.
We commit to delete the personal data that is processed for our own purposes, as soon as knowledge for the fulfillment of the purpose of the storage is no longer required. Instead of a deletion, data will be blocked, as far as a deletion conflicts with legal, statutory or contractual legal purposes, if there are grounds for assuming that the legitimate interests of the person concerned would be affected by a cancellation or deletion due to the specific type of storage or only possible with disproportionate high expenditure.
Additionally, you can at any time terminate, rectify or delete your data collected by us. A deletion also occurs if you withdraw your consent to collect, process and use your personal data. If the revocation takes place during an ongoing business transaction, the data will be deleted immediately after its completion. Further statutory deletion or blocking obligations remain unaffected.
We are committed to meeting the technical and organizational measures that are necessary to ensure the implementation of the provisions on data privacy, as long as the effort is proportionate to the desired level of protection. When communicating by email complete data security cannot be guaranteed, so we recommend that you send confidential information via post.
