An overview of data protection
We are happy about your visit to our website. Data protection has a high priority for us.
This page informs you of our policies regarding the collection, use, and disclosure of personal information when you use our service and the choices you have regarding that information.
Your data is safe with us. We use your data only to process your request and do not share it with third parties. When you use individual functions, services or offers on our website, personal data may be processed. Below we inform you in detail about the type, scope, and purpose of the personal data we collect, use and process. In addition, we will inform you about the rights to which you are entitled as a data subject. The following information provides a simple overview of what happens to your personal data when you visit this website.
The responsible party in terms of data protection laws, in particular the EU General Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO), are: Laura Fietz and Marius Fietz
How do we record your data?
Your data will only be stored in a protected Excel list. We do not use CRM.
After two years, the data is deleted. If you want a deletion before that, contact us.
What purpose do we use your data for?
We use your data solely when we receive a request from you in order to answer it. We do not want to send you spam mails.
What rights do you have as far as your information is concerned?
You have the right to receive information about the source, recipients, and purposes of your archived personal data at any time without having to pay a fee for such disclosures. You also have the right to demand for your data to be rectified or deleted. If you have consented to data processing, you have the option to revoke this consent at any time, which shall affect all future data processing. Moreover, you have the right to demand that the processing of your data be restricted under certain circumstances. Furthermore, you have the right to log a complaint with the responsible supervising agency. Please do not hesitate to contact us at any time if you have questions about this or any other data protection-related issues.
(Analysis) tools and tools provided by third parties
We work with third-party tools to which personal data is transferred. This forwarding only takes place with your declaration of consent.
Information on data transfer to the USA and other non-EU countries
Among other things, we use tools of companies domiciled in the United States or other non-EU countries, which may be considered non-secure from a data protection perspective. If these tools are active, your personal data may potentially be transferred to these non-EU countries and may be processed there. We must point out that in these countries, a data protection level that is comparable to that in the EU cannot be guaranteed. For instance, U.S. enterprises are under a mandate to release personal data to the security agencies and you, as the data subject, do not have any litigation options to defend yourself in court. Hence, it cannot be ruled out that U.S. governmental agencies may process, analyze, and permanently archive your personal data for surveillance purposes. We have no control over these processing activities.
SSL 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 program. You can recognize 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.
