Data protection

The operators of this web­site and its pages take the protec­tion of your perso­nal data very seri­ously. Hence, we handle your personal data as confi­den­tial infor­mation and in compli­ance with the statu­tory data protec­tion regu­la­tions and this Data Protec­tion Decla­ration.

Whenever you use this web­site, a variety of personal infor­mation will be collec­ted. Perso­nal data com­prises data that can be used to perso­nally iden­tify you. This Data Protec­tion Decla­ration explains which data we collect as well as the pur­poses we use this data for. It also explains how, and for which pur­pose the infor­mation is collected.

We here­with advise you that the trans­mission of data via the Inter­net (i.e. through email commu­ni­cations) may be prone to secu­rity gaps. It is not possible to comple­tely pro­tect data against third party access.

Information about the respon­sible party (referred to as the “con­troller” in the GDPR)
The data pro­cess­ing con­troller on this web­site is:

Herr Sven Halt auf der Heide

D-42327 Wuppertal-Vohwinkel

Tel.: +49 202 - 73 00 26

The con­troller is the natural person or legal entity that single-handedly or jointly with others makes deci­sions as to the pur­poses of and resour­ces for the pro­cess­ing of perso­nal data (e.g. names, email ad­dresses, etc.).

Revocation of your con­sent to the pro­cess­ing of data
A wide range of data processing trans­actions are possible only sub­ject to your express consent. You can also revoke at any time any consent you have already given us. To do so, all you are required to do is sent us an informal notification via email. This shall be without pre­ju­dice to the law­ful­ness of any data collec­tion that occurred prior to your revo­cation.

Right to object to the collec­tion of data in special cases; right to ob­ject to direct adver­ti­sing (Art. 21 GDPR)
In the event that data are pro­cessed on the basis of Art. 6 Sect. 1 lit. e or f GDPR, you have the right to at any time object to the pro­cess­ing of your per­so­nal data based on grounds ari­sing from your unique situ­ation. This also applies to any pro­fi­ling based on these pro­vi­sions. To deter­mine the legal basis, on which any pro­cess­ing of data is based, please con­sult this Data Pro­tec­tion Decla­ration. If you log an ob­jec­tion, we will no longer pro­cess your affec­ted per­so­nal data, unless we are in a posi­tion to pre­sent com­pelling pro­tec­tion worthy grounds for the pro­cess­ing of your data, that out­weigh your inter­ests, rights and free­doms or if the pur­pose of the pro­cess­ing is the clai­ming, exer­ci­sing or de­fence of legal entit­le­ments (ob­jec­tion pur­su­ant to Art. 21 Sect. 1 GDPR).

If your per­so­nal data is being pro­cessed in order to en­gage in direct adver­ti­sing, you have the right to at any time object to the pro­cess­ing of your affec­ted per­so­nal data for the pur­poses of such adver­ti­sing. This also applies to pro­fi­ling to the ex­tent that it is affi­li­ated with such direct ad­ver­ti­sing. If you ob­ject, your per­so­nal data will sub­se­quent­ly no longer be used for di­rect ad­ver­ti­sing pur­poses (ob­jec­tion pur­su­ant to Art. 21 Sect. 2 GDPR).

Right to log a complaint with the compe­tent super­visory agency
In the event of viola­tions of the GDPR, data subjects are entitled to log a com­plaint with a super­visory agency, in parti­cular in the member state where they usu­ally main­tain their domi­cile, place of work or at the place where the alleged vio­lation oc­curred. The right to log a com­plaint is in effect regard­less of any other ad­min­is­tra­tive or court pro­ceed­ings avail­able as legal recourses.

Right to data portability
You have the right to demand that we hand over any data we automatically process on the basis of your consent or in order to fulfil a contract be handed over to you or a third party in a commonly used, machine readable format. If you should demand the direct transfer of the data to another controller, this will be done only if it is technically feasible.

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.

Information about, blockage, recti­fi­cation and eradi­ca­tion of data
Within the scope of the appli­cable statu­tory provi­sions, you have the right to at any time demand infor­mation about your archived perso­nal data, their source and reci­pients as well as the pur­pose of the pro­cess­ing of your data. You may also have a right to have your data recti­fied, blocked or eradi­cated. If you have ques­tions about this sub­ject matter or any other ques­tions about perso­nal data, please do not hesi­tate to con­tact us at any time at the address provi­ded in sec­tion “Infor­mation Required by Law.”

Rejection of unso­licited emails
We here­with object to the use of con­tact infor­ma­tion pub­lished in con­junc­tion with the man­da­tory infor­ma­tion to be pro­vided in sec­tion “Infor­mation Required by Law” to send us promo­tional and infor­ma­tion mate­rial that we have not expressly reques­ted. The opera­tors of this web­site and its pages reserve the express right to take legal action in the event of the unso­licited send­ing of promo­tional infor­ma­tion, for in­stance via SPAM messages.
