Responsible body in accordance with German data protection law:
Collection of general information
When you log on to our website, information of a general nature is automatically collected. This data (server log files) includes, for example, the type of web browser, the operating system, the domain name of your internet service provider and similar. None of this information is capable of directly identifying you. This information is technically necessary in order to be able to deliver the website content you wish to access, and is required when using the internet. We perform a statistical evaluation of anonymous information of this type in order to optimise our website and the technology which supports it.
Our internet service provider all-inkl identifies and saves the following data automatically to the so-called “server-log-files”. Your internet browser sends us automatically:
- type of browser / version
- operating system
- referring URL
- time of server request
This personal information is not attributable to a certain person. Combination with other information sources does not occur.
Like many other websites, we use so-called “cookies”. Cookies are small pieces of data which are transferred from a website server on to your hard drive. These automatically provide us with certain data via your computer and your internet connection, such as your IP address, browser and operating system.
Cookies can not be used to run programmes or to transfer viruses to your computer. By using the information contained in cookies we can make facilitate navigation and ensure that our web pages display correctly.
Under no circumstances will data collected by us be shared with third parties or linked to personal data without your consent.
When you register to receive our Newsletter the data you provide will be used exclusively for this purpose. Subscribers may also be informed by email of matters relating to the service provided or their registration (e.g. changes to the newsletter or technical factors).
For registration to take effect we require a valid email address. In order to check that a subscriber is the genuine owner of an email address, we use the “double opt-in” process. For this purpose we record the newsletter registration, dispatch of a confirmation email and receipt of the reply requested in this email. No other data is collected. This data is used exclusively for purposes of sending out the newsletter and is not shared with third parties.
You can withdraw consent to the storage of your personal data and the use thereof for mailing the newsletter at any time. Every newsletter contains a link to enable you to do this. You can also unsubscribe directly on this website at any time, or request that we do this for you by getting in touch using the contact details provided at the end of this data protection section.
If you contact us by email or using the contact form, the information you provide will be stored for purposes of dealing with your query and with any additional questions.
Use of Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google In. (hereinafter referred to as Google). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, ie text files which are stored on your computer and which make it possible to analyse the way in which you use the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. As IP-anonymisation has been activated on these web pages, in Member States of the European Union and in other states which are party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area, Google will first shorten your IP address. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to analyse your use of the website, in order to compile reports on website activity and to provide the website operator with other services related to website activity and internet use. The IP address sent from your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.
You can adjust the settings on your browser software to prevent the storage of cookies. We would, however, point out that by doing so you might not be able to use all the functions of the website fully. You may also prevent Google from collecting and processing data relating to your use of the website generated by the cookie (including your IP address) by downloading and installing the browser plug-in using the following link: Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on
Use of script libraries (Google web fonts)
In order to present our content properly and in a graphically attractive form across all browsers, we use script libraries and font libraries such as, for example, Google web fonts (https://www.google.com/webfonts/). Google web fonts are transferred to the cache of your browser so that they do not have to be loaded repeatedly. If the browser does not support Google web fonts or prohibits access, content will be displayed in a standard font.
Calling up script libraries or font libraries automatically creates a connection with the operator of the library. It is therefore theoretically possible that operators of such libraries could collect data – although it is not clear at present whether this happens, and if so for what purpose.
Data protection policy of Google in its capacity as library operator can be seen here: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy
Use of Google Maps
This website uses Google Maps API for the visual display of geographical information. When Google Maps are used, Google collects, processes and uses data about visitors’ use of map functions. For more information about Google’s data processing, please refer to Google’s privacy notice. There in the Data Protection Centre you can also change your personal privacy settings.
