Data protection notice
Neudorff takes the protection of personal data very seriously and complies with appropriate data protection provisions, particularly the regulations of the German Telemedia Act (TMG) and the German Data Protection Act (BDSG). Below are the specific details of when we collect data, what data we collect and how we use it.
Anonymous data collection
You can use our website without revealing your identity. We only store impersonal access data, such as the name of your Internet service provider, the page you visited us from, the name of the files requested and the access date. This information is evaluated solely for statistical purposes and cannot be used to identify individuals. We only record personal details if you have communicated these to us voluntarily in the course of visiting our website.
We use so-called cookies on some pages to make our website appealing to visitors and to facilitate use of certain features. These are small text files that are stored on your computer. Most of the cookies we use are deleted from your hard drive once you end your browser session (“session cookies”). In contrast, the so-called “permanent cookies” remain on your computer and enable us, e.g. to highlight your read/unread articles in the Forum. It is also possible to use our website without cookies, but some features will be unavailable as a result.
The majority of browsers are set up so that you accept cookies automatically. However, you can deactivate the storage of cookies or set up your browser so that it informs you as soon as cookies are sent.
Collection, processing and usage of personal data
The personal details you provide are collected, processed and used exclusively to enable us to conduct competitions, to handle newsletter requests, to respond to your queries, or to facilitate use of our Forum.
Your personal details may be passed on to service providers and partner companies who are helping us to fulfil the purposes listed above. These companies are only permitted to use your personal details as so-called contract data processors to fulfil their tasks on our behalf and are obligated to comply with the appropriate data protection regulations.
Occasionally, we may be forced to disclose your data because of statutory regulations or legal processes. If this is required in order to process your queries, then we may also forward your individual queries to our applicable sales partner abroad, who will then contact you directly. Aside from these circumstances, however, your personal details will not be passed to third parties.
Your stored personal details will only be processed in countries of the European Economic Area.
Email newsletters are only sent to you if you have explicitly subscribed to the corresponding newsletters on our website. If you no longer wish to receive any email newsletters you can unsubscribe on the newsletter you have received, or you can contact us using the details below.
Your right to information, correction and deletion of your personal data
You have the right to request information at any time concerning what data we have stored about you and for what purpose this data was stored. Furthermore, you may report inaccurate data or have data deleted if it has been wrongfully stored or is no longer required. To exercise these rights please contact us by telephone on +49 (0)5155 62 44 888 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Links to other websites
Our online presence may contain links that lead to third-party websites. We have no influence over the content and layout of sites provided by external suppliers. These data protection regulations do not apply in this respect.
Use of social plugins
Our website uses programs (so-called “plugins”) of the social networks Facebook (Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA), Google+ (Google Inc., Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA) and Twitter (Twitter Inc., 1355 Market St, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103).
No data is sent to these companies when you simply visit our website. The actual plugin of the applicable social network is only loaded when you click on the “Like” (Facebook), “g+1” (Google) and “Tweet” (Twitter) graphics. Your browser then makes a direct connection with the servers of the applicable social network, after which the content of the plugin is forwarded to your browser and is then integrated from this into our website that you are viewing. Simultaneously, the information that you have accessed on our website, together with your IP address and other information where applicable, is sent to the relevant social network. If you are logged in at this point to your personal user account with the applicable social network, then the applicable social network can link access to this site with your user account. You can avoid such a link by logging out of your account with the applicable social network before clicking on the graphics described above.
Please read the applicable data protection notices for information on the scope and purpose of the data collection, and on how your data is processed and used by the social network in question after you click on the graphics described above:
