Data protection information:
We comply with the statutory requirements for all data processing activities (collection, processing and transmission). Your data required for the business transaction is stored and transferred to service providers instructed by us as necessary to process the order. Furthermore, address and order information will be collected and processed for our own marketing purposes. For external marketing purposes, only such data is transferred that is permitted to by law (general public data and aggregate data compiled in lists in accordance with section 28 (3) P. 2 and P. 4 Federal Data Protection Act).
Secure data transmission:
All personal data that you transmit to us during general browsing or particularly during the order process, will be transmitted in encrypted form and is therefore protected from misuse. In particular, we create an SSL connection for each transaction. SSL (secure sockets layer) is a method for encrypting your data so that it cannot be read by unauthorised persons during the transfer across the Internet.
You can identify the SSL connection by the change of Internet address from http:// to . Additionally, the secure connection will generally be displayed in the status bar of your web browser in the form of a lock symbol.
Integration of social plug-ins:
Social plugins for the social networks Facebook, Twitter and WhatsApp have been integrated into our websites. These are offers from the US company Facebook Inc. (1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA), Twitter Inc. (1355 Market Street, Suite 900, San Francisco CA 94103) and WhatsApp Inc. (650 Castro Street, Suite 120-219, Mountain View, California 94041). You can identify the plugins by the relevant logos of the companies.
Before clicking on the Facebook, Twitter and WhatsApp buttons, a data protection friendly alternative (Shariff button) will only transit the visitor's server address instead of the IP address to Facebook, Twitter and WhatsApp. As long as the user does not click the link to share content, he shall remain invisible, at least for Facebook & Co. If you click the share button, you consent to the transfer of your data to the relevant network.
We use the data protection friendly alternative (Shariff button) to prevent social networks from following and storing the Internet habits without the active contribution of the user. For further information on the solution used, please see http://www.heise.de/ct/ausgabe/2014-26-Social-Media-Buttons-datenschutzkonform-nutzen-2463330.html.
