2. General notes and mandatory information
We would like to point out that the online transmission of data (such as via email) may be exposed to security gaps. It is impossible to protect data completely against unauthorised access by third parties.
Address of the data controller
The data controller who is responsible for processing data on this website is:
Managing Directors: Taylan Pek
Telephone: +49 (0)40/63 60 78 45
The data controller is the natural or legal person who alone or, together with others, decides on the purposes and means of processing personal data (e.g. names, email addresses, etc.).
Revoking your consent to data processing
Many data processing processes are only possible with your express consent. You can revoke your previously given consent at any time. To do so all you need to do is send us an email. Data that has been processed up to the point that the revocation is requested has been processed on legitimate grounds and remains unaffected by the revocation.
Right to object to data collection in special cases and to direct advertising (Article 21 of the GDPR)
If your personal data are processed to operate direct advertising, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning you for the purpose of such advertising; this also applies to profiling insofar as it is associated with such direct advertising. If you object, your personal data will then no longer be used for the purpose of direct advertising (objection pursuant to Article 21 para. 2 of the GDPR).
Right to appeal to the competent supervisory authority
In the case of violations of the GDPR, the persons concerned have a right of appeal to a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of their habitual residence, their place of work or the place of the alleged infringement. The right of complaint is without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedies.
Right to data portability
In the case of data which we process automatically on the basis of your consent or in fulfilment of a contract, you have the right to have these data handed over to you or to a third party in a common, machine readable format. If you request the data to be transferred directly to another data controller, this will only take place if it is technically feasible.
SSL and TLS encryption
This site uses SSL and TLS encryption respectively for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or requests that you send to us as the site operator. You can check you have an encrypted connection when you see that the browser address field has changed from “http://” to “https://” and when you see the lock symbol in the browser address bar.
If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transfer to us cannot be read by third parties.
Information, blocking, deletion and correction
Within the scope of the applicable legal provisions, you have the right at any time to obtain information free of charge concerning the personal data we have stored about you. You also have the right to know the origin of the data, who is receiving them and for what purpose the data are being processed. If necessary, you also have the right to have these data corrected, blocked or deleted. Should you have further questions on the subject of personal data, you can contact us at any time at the address provided in the imprint.
Right to restriction of processing
You have the right to request the restriction of processing of your personal data. You can contact us about this at any time at the address provided in the imprint. You have the right to restrict the processing of your data in the following circumstances:
- If you dispute the accuracy of the personal data we have stored about you, we usually need time to verify this. For the duration of the verification process, you have the right to request the restriction of processing of your personal data.
- If your personal data have been or are being unlawfully processed, you may request the restriction of data processing instead of their deletion.
- If we no longer require your personal data, however you need them to exercise, defend or enforce legal claims, you have the right to demand that your personal data be restricted instead of being deleted.
- If you have filed an objection pursuant to Article 21 para. 1 of the GDPR, a balance must be made between your interests and ours. As long as it is not clear whose interests prevail, you have the right to request the restriction of processing of your personal data.
If the processing of your personal data has been restricted, such data shall, with the exception of storage, only be processed with your consent or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of important public interest of the European Union or of a Member State.
Objection to advertising emails
We hereby object to the use of information published in our imprint as required by law to send us unsolicited advertising and informational material. The operators of the websites expressly reserve the right to take legal action against such unsolicited advertising information and spam emails.
3. Data collection on our website
Most of the cookies we use are known as “session cookies”. They are automatically deleted after your visit. Other cookies remain in the memory of your device until you delete them. These cookies make it possible to recognise your browser when you next visit the site.
Server log files
The provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in what are known as server log files, which your browser automatically sends to us. This data includes:
- Browser type and browser version
- Operating system used
- Referrer URL
- Host name of the computer establishing access
- Date and time of the server request
- IP address
We do not make any attempt to match this data with data received from other sources.
The legal basis for collecting these data is Article 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the technically error-free presentation and optimisation of the website – to ensure this, server log files must be recorded.
If you contact us via the contact form, the requested information on the form, including contact data specified by you, shall be stored by us solely for the purpose of processing the request and for follow-up questions. We shall not share these data without your consent.
The processing of the data entered in the contact form is thus carried out exclusively on the basis of your consent (Article 6 para. 1 lit. a of the GDPR). You can revoke your consent at any time. To do so all you need to do is send us an email. This does not affect the legality of any data processing done before we receive your request.
We shall keep the data you enter in the contact form until you request to delete them, you revoke your consent for them to be stored or until the purpose for data storage no longer applies (e.g. after your request has been processed). Mandatory statutory provisions, especially retention periods, remain unaffected.
Inquiries by email, telephone or fax
If you contact us by email, telephone or fax, we will store and process your inquiry including all resultant personal data (name, inquiry) in order to handle your issue. We shall not share these data without your consent.
The legal basis for collecting these data is Article 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR, where your enquiry is in connection with fulfilment of a contract, or is required for execution of pre-contractual activities. In all other cases, processing is based on your consent (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR) and/or our entitled interests (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR) as we have an entitled interest in the effective processing of the enquiries received by us.
We shall keep the data you enter in the contact form until you ask us to delete them, you revoke your consent for them to be stored or until the purpose for data storage no longer applies (e.g. after your issue has been processed). Mandatory statutory provisions, especially statutory retention periods, remain unaffected.
4. Plugins and tools
We use Google reCAPTCHA (hereinafter referred to as reCAPTCHA) on our websites. The service provider is Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.
The purpose of reCAPTCHA is to verify whether data that is entered onto our website (e.g. on a contact form) has been entered by a real person or by an automated programme. In order to achieve this, reCAPTCHA analyses the behaviour of the website visitor by means of different observations. This analysis begins automatically as soon as the website visitor accesses the website. reCAPTCHA evaluates various types of information to conduct the analysis (e.g. IP address, duration of the user’s visit to the website and other factors such as mouse movements). The data that are captured during the analysis are transferred to Google.
reCAPTCHA analysis is carried out entirely as a background operation. Visitors to the website are not alerted to the fact that an analysis is taking place.
The legal basis of this form of data processing is Article 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in ensuring that his website is protected from automated illicit access and SPAM.
