3. Use and disclosure of personal data
To the extent you have made personal data available to us, this data will be used exclusively to reply to your inquiries, to handle your concluded contracts and for technical administration.
A passing on or transmission of your personal data to third parties will take place on only if this is necessary for the purpose of the conclusion of the contract, in particular for the purpose of forwarding ordering information to suppliers or for accounting purposes and/or if you have previously consented. You can revoke a granted consent to pass on your personal data to third parties for future purposes at any time.
Your personal data will be deleted if you revoke your consent to storage, if knowledge of the data is no longer necessary to fulfil the purpose for which the data was stored or if the storage of the data is inadmissible for other statutory reasons.
4. Right to information
On written request we would be glad to provide you with information on your personal information that we have stored.
5. Safety information
We are constantly committed to exploiting all technical and organisational opportunities for protecting your personal data against unauthorised third-party access. Email communication however bears latent risks and we therefore recommend you submit confidential information by postal mail.
6. Social Networks
Moreover our website includes references (links) to the external social network Facebook. This website is operated solely by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (Facebook). The links are marked in the frame of our website with the Facebook logo or the suffix “Like” (no Facebook plugins are used). If this link is followed by a click, the Facebook plugins are activated and your browser establishes a direct connection to the Facebook servers. If you follow the links during your visit to our website and are logged into Facebook through your personal user account, the information that you have visited our website will be forwarded to Facebook. Facebook can allocate the visit to your Facebook account. This information will be transmitted to Facebook and saved there. To prevent this you have to log out of your Facebook account before you click on the link. The functions assigned to Facebook, in particular the transmission of information and user data, do not become activated just through the visit to our website but only through the click on the corresponding link. For information on the purpose and extent of data capture and the further processing and use of data by Facebook, as well your rights in this regard and turn-off options for the protection of your personal privacy, please refer to the Facebook data protection information: (http://de-de.facebook.com/privacy/explanation.php) http://www.facebook.com/policy.php.
