Information we share
We only pass on personal data to other companies within our group of companies, business partners, authorities and law enforcement authorities, legal successors of our company and suppliers whom we instruct to process data on our behalf. Under these circumstances, we will disclose your personal information for purposes such as our legitimate business purposes and to comply with legal obligations.

Links to other websites
This privacy policy applies only to information collected by a COMPANY website. Please contact us for further information and all data protection provisions of the COMPANY.
COMPANY sites contain links to other sites that are not owned or managed by COMPANY. Please note that COMPANY is not responsible for the privacy practices of these other sites. We encourage you to read the privacy statements of each website you visit.

Security
We maintain security measures to protect against unauthorized disclosure, use, alteration or destruction of the personal information you provide to us through the COMPANY Web Sites. Please note, however, that there is no perfect security on the Internet. Therefore, we strive to protect your personal data, but when data is transmitted over the Internet, it may be viewed and used by unauthorized persons.

SSL and/or TLS encryption
For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as purchase orders or inquiries you submit to us as the website operator, this website uses either an SSL or a TLS encryption programme. You can recognise an encrypted connection by checking whether the address line of the browser switches from “http://” to “https://” and also by the appearance of the lock icon in the browser line.

If the SSL or TLS encryption is activated, data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.

Access and correction and deletion
We want to ensure that all information we hold about you is current and accurate. If you have any questions about your personal information that COMPANY has about you in order to obtain a copy, or if you have any questions about these practices, please contact us via the details at the top of this document.

Google reCAPTCHA
We use “Google reCAPTCHA” (hereafter “reCAPTCHA”) on our websites. Provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”).
With reCAPTCHA we want to check if the data entry on our websites (for example in a contact form) is done by a human or by an automated program. For this, reCAPTCHA analyzes the behavior of the website visitor based on various characteristics. This analysis begins automatically as soon as the website visitor enters the website. For analysis, reCAPTCHA evaluates various information (for example, the IP address, the time a visitor spent on the website or mouse movements made by the user). The data collected during the analysis will be forwarded to Google.
The reCAPTCHA analyzes are completely in the background. Site visitors are not advised that an analysis is taking place.
Data processing takes place on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f EU-GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in protecting its websites from abusive automated spying and SPAM.
For more information about Google reCAPTCHA and Google’s privacy policy, please visit the following links: https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/ and https://www.google.com/recaptcha/intro/android. html.

Google Web Fonts
This site uses so-called web fonts, provided by Google, for the uniform representation of fonts. When you view a page, your browser loads the required web fonts into your browser cache to display texts and fonts correctly.

To do this, the browser you use must connect to Google’s servers. As a result, Google learns that our website has been accessed via your IP address. The use of Google Web Fonts is in the interest of a consistent and attractive presentation of our online services. This constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f EU-GDPR.

If your browser does not support web fonts, a default font will be used by your computer.

More information about Google Web Fonts can be found at https://developers.google.com/fonts/faq and in Google’s Privacy Policy: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/.

Google Maps
This site uses the mapping service Google Maps via an API. Provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. To use the features of Google Maps it is necessary to store your IP address. This information is usually transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. The provider of this site has no influence on this data transfer.

The use of Google Maps is in the interest of an attractive presentation of our online offers and an easy traceability of the places we have indicated on the website. This constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f EU-GDPR.
