Data protection policy
Data protection is a matter of trust and to earn and keep your trust is important to us. We respect your private and personal spheres. The protection and the lawful collection, processing and use of your personal data are therefore important concerns for us. So that you feel safe when visiting our websites, we strictly observe the legal provisions when processing your personal data and wish to take this opportunity to inform you about our data collection and data use.
Collection, use and processing of personal data
When you visit our website, certain data is automatically stored on our servers for system administration, statistical or security purposes. This data includes the name of your internet service provider, possibly your IP address, the version of your browser software, the operating system of the computer used to access it, the website from which you visit us, the webpages you visit on our site and any search terms you used to find our website. This data may allow conclusions to be drawn about a specific visitor to the website. However, personal data will not be commercially exploited in this context. Such data is only used anonymously.
If you provide us with personal data of your own accord, we will not use, process or pass on this data beyond the scope permitted by law or beyond the scope specified by you in a declaration of consent. Insofar as we use the services of third parties to carry out and handle processing, the provisions of the German Federal Data Protection Act (“BDSG”) are observed.
In addition, we only pass on your data if we are obliged to do so by law, or by official or court orders.
In the event of a credit risk (name, address, e-mail address, information about the company and, if applicable, contract and claim data), we will transmit your data to the IHD Gesellschaft für Kredit und Forderungsmanagement mbH, Augustinusstr. 11 B, 50226 Frechen, and possibly to other cooperating credit agencies. The legal basis for this transmission is Art 6 I b GDPR and Art 6 I f GDPR. Data transmissions on the basis of Art 6 I f GDPR may only take place if this is necessary to protect the legitimate interests of our company and does not outweigh the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the person concerned, which require the protection of personal data.
It goes without saying that you are also entitled at any time to revoke your consent to the use and processing of personal data with effect for the future. In this case, please contact the following address:

Data protection policy for the use of Google +1
Collection and disclosure of information:
You can use the Google +1 button to publish information worldwide. You and other users receive personalised content from Google and our partners via the Google +1 button. Google stores both that you have +1’d some content and also the page you were viewing when you clicked +1. Your +1’s can be displayed along with your profile name and photo in Google services, such as in search results or in your Google profile, or in other places on websites and advertisements on the internet.
Google records information about your +1 activities in order to improve Google services for you and others. In order to use the Google +1 button, you need a globally visible, public Google profile that must contain at least the name chosen for the profile. This name is used for all Google services. In some cases, this name can also replace another name that you used when sharing content via your Google account. The identity of your Google profile can be displayed to users who know your email address or have other identifying information about you.
