Every citizen has the right to determine the use of his or her personal data. For this reason, it is our duty to protect the data you entrust to us when you visit our website. In the following, we would like to show you what data we have from you, what happens with this data and what security precautions we have taken to protect this data from misuse.
Scope of validity
This data protection declaration applies to the entire Internet presence, but not to pages of other providers for which you may find links on our pages.
All employees of our company are trained in accordance with § 5 of the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and are obligated to maintain data secrecy. Our computer center, as well as our in-house EDP department, continuously adapt the technical security precautions to the current circumstances and requirements. Both are subject to constant monitoring by our internal audit department and the data protection officer.
Personal data of children is not knowingly collected without explicitly stating that such data should only be transferred with the consent of the parents if applicable legal regulations provide for this. As a matter of principle, we will only use or disclose children's personal data to the extent permitted by law, to obtain parental consent required by law, or to protect children. For the term "child/children", the nationally applicable legal provisions and cultural customs must be taken into account here.
Each time a user accesses a page from our website and each time a file is retrieved, access data about this process is stored in a log file on our server.
Statistics are generated from this data, which help us to further adapt our Internet portal to your needs. A personal reference cannot be derived from this, a passing on of the data to third parties, even in extracts, does not take place.
This website uses the open source web analytics service, Matomo.
With the help of Matomo, we are able to collect and analyse data about the use of our website by website visitors. This allows us to find out, among other things, when which page views were made and from which region they came. We also collect various log files (e.g. IP address, referrer, browsers and operating systems used) and can measure whether our website visitors perform certain actions (e.g. clicks, purchases, etc.).
The use of this analysis tool is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analysing user behaviour in order to optimise both its website and its advertising. Insofar as a corresponding consent has been requested, the processing is carried out exclusively on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO and § 25 para. 1 TTDSG, insofar as the consent includes the storage of cookies or access to information in the user's terminal device (e.g. device fingerprinting) as defined by the TTDSG. The consent can be revoked at any time.
We use IP anonymization for the analysis with Matomo. In this case, your IP address is shortened before analysis so that it can no longer be clearly assigned to you.
We host Matomo exclusively on our own servers, so that all analysis data remains with us and is not passed on.

The personal data you provide online will be collected, processed and used only for the purposes disclosed to you, unless the collection, processing or use is for another purpose directly related to the original purpose for which the personal data was collected,
Rights to information and correction of stored personal data In accordance with §34 and §6b of the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG), users have the right to request information free of charge about the personal data stored about them. In addition, users also have the right to correct, block and delete this personal data in accordance with the legal provisions. In all these cases, please contact our data protection officer directly.
Our website uses so-called cookies in several places. "Cookies" are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser. They serve to make our offer more user-friendly, effective and secure. Furthermore, cookies enable our systems to recognise your browser and offer you services. Cookies do not contain any personal data. You have the option of preventing cookies from being stored on your computer by making the appropriate settings in your browser. However, this could limit the functionality of our offer.
Use of Facebook plugins
These Internet pages use plugins of the social network facebook.com, which is operated by Facebook Inc, 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA ("Facebook").
If you call up Internet pages of our Internet presence that are provided with such a plugin, a connection to the Facebook servers is established and the plugin is displayed on the Internet page by notifying your browser. This transmits to the Facebook server which of our Internet pages you have visited. If you are logged in as a Facebook member, Facebook assigns this information to your personal Facebook user account. When using the plugin functions (e.g. clicking the "Like" button, submitting a comment), this information is also assigned to your Facebook account, which you can only prevent by logging out before using the plugin.
Data protection - Google +1 With the help of the Google +1 button, you can publish information worldwide. Via the Google +1 button, you and other users receive personalised content from Google and its partners. Google stores both the information that you have given +1 for a content and information about the page you were viewing when you clicked +1. Your +1s may be displayed as notices along with your profile name and photo in Google services, such as search results or your Google profile, or elsewhere on websites and ads on the Internet.
Google records information about your +1 activities in order to improve Google services for you and others.
To use the Google +1 button, you need a globally visible, public Google profile, which must contain at least the name chosen for the profile. This name is used in all Google services. In some cases, this name may also replace another name you used when sharing content through your Google Account. The identity of your Google profile may be displayed to users who know your email address or have other identifying information about you.
Google may publish aggregate statistics about users' +1 activities or share these statistics with its users and partners, such as publishers, advertisers or affiliated websites. For example, Google may tell a publisher: "10 percent of users who +1'd this page are in New York."

Processing of personal data
At some points on our website, we offer you the opportunity to contact us or to use certain services (e.g. newsletter subscription, B2B store registration). We use the personal data transmitted in this context only for the one purpose for which it was provided to us. We do not pass on your personal data, including your home address and e-mail address, to third parties without your express consent, which can be revoked at any time. Excluded from this are our service partners who require the transmission of data for order processing (e.g. the shipping company commissioned with the delivery and the credit institution commissioned with the payment processing). In these cases, however, the scope of the transmitted data is limited to the minimum required. The dealer search service is operated with the consent of the disclosure of address data by the respective GEWA partner.
We only collect, process and use your personal data if you have expressly consented to this beforehand. You can revoke this consent at any time by sending a message to our data protection officer.
Security of personal data
In order to ensure the confidentiality of communication with you, we use the so-called SSL encryption. According to the current state of knowledge, the 128-bit encryption possible with this is to be regarded as secure. This security level is achieved by all browsers of the younger generation. Under certain circumstances, you should update the browser on your PC.
