Privacy Policy

1) Infor­ma­ti­on about the collec­tion of per­so­nal data and con­tact details of the respon­si­ble enti­ty

1.1 We are plea­sed that you have deci­ded to visit our web­site and thank you for your inte­rest. Plea­se find below infor­ma­ti­on about how we hand­le your data when you use our web­site. Per­so­nal infor­ma­ti­on is any data with which you could be per­so­nal­ly iden­ti­fied.

1.2 The enti­ty respon­si­ble for the data pro­ces­sing on this web­site regar­ding the Gene­ral Data Pro­tec­tion Regu­la­ti­on (GDPR) is Bur­da World­wi­de Tech­no­lo­gies GmbH, Rudolf-Die­sel-Stra­ße 18, 65760 Esch­born, Ger­ma­ny, Tel.: +49 6173 32424 0, Fax: +49 6173 32424 24, email: info@burdawtg.de. ‘Respon­si­ble enti­ty’ shall mean the natu­ral or legal per­son, who alo­ne or joint­ly with others deter­mi­nes the pur­po­ses and means of the pro­ces­sing of per­so­nal data.

1.3 For secu­ri­ty rea­sons and to pro­tect the trans­mis­si­on of per­so­nal data as well as other con­fi­den­ti­al con­tent (e.g., orders or requests to the con­trol­ler), this web­site uses SSL or TLS encryp­ti­on. You can reco­gnise an encryp­ted con­nec­tion in the HTML string “https://” and the lock icon in your brow­ser.

2) Data collec­tion when you visit our web­site

When you use our web­site for infor­ma­ti­on pur­po­ses only, i.e. if you do not regis­ter or other­wi­se pro­vi­de us with infor­ma­ti­on, we only collect data that your brow­ser trans­mits to our ser­ver (so-cal­led ‘ser­ver log files’). When you visit our web­site, we obtain the fol­lo­wing infor­ma­ti­on that is tech­ni­cal­ly necessa­ry for us to dis­play the web­site con­tent:

  • Our visi­ted web­site
  • Date and time of the access
  • Amount of data sent in bytes
  • Source/Reference from which site you were redi­rec­ted
  • Brow­ser used
  • Ope­ra­ting sys­tem used
  • IP address used (if app­li­ca­ble: anony­mi­sed)

Data pro­ces­sing is car­ri­ed out fol­lo­wing Sec­tion 6(1) let­ter f GDPR from our legi­ti­ma­te inte­rest in impro­ving the sta­bi­li­ty and func­tio­n­a­li­ty of our web­site. The data will not be pas­sed on or used in any other way. Howe­ver, we reser­ve the right to check the ser­ver log files sub­se­quent­ly, if the­re are any con­cre­te indi­ca­ti­ons of ille­gal use.

 

3) Coo­kies

We use the so-cal­led coo­kies on some of our pages to make your visit to our web­site as attrac­tive as pos­si­ble and to enab­le the use of spe­ci­fic func­tions. The­se are text files which are stored on your device. Some of the coo­kies we use are dele­ted after the end of the brow­ser ses­si­on, i.e. after clo­sing your brow­ser (so-cal­led ses­si­on coo­kies). Other coo­kies remain on your ter­mi­nal and enab­le us or our part­ner com­pa­nies (third-par­ty coo­kies) to reco­gnise your brow­ser on your next visit (per­sis­tent coo­kies). If coo­kies are set, they collect and pro­cess spe­ci­fic user infor­ma­ti­on such as brow­ser and loca­ti­on data as well as IP address values accord­ing to indi­vi­du­al requi­re­ments. Per­sis­tent coo­kies are auto­ma­ti­cal­ly dele­ted after a spe­ci­fied peri­od, which may vary depen­ding on the coo­kie.

In some cases, coo­kies are used to sim­pli­fy the orde­ring pro­cess by saving set­tings (e.g. remem­be­ring the con­tent of a vir­tu­al shop­ping bas­ket for a later visit to the web­site). Pro­vi­ded that indi­vi­du­al coo­kies imple­men­ted by us also pro­cess per­so­nal data, this is done accord­ing to Sec­tion 6(1) let­ter b GDPR eit­her for the exe­cu­ti­on of the agree­ment or fol­lo­wing Sec­tion 6(1) let­ter f GDPR to safe­guard our legi­ti­ma­te inte­rests and main­tain the best pos­si­ble func­tio­n­a­li­ty of the web­site as well as a custo­mer-fri­end­ly and prac­ti­cal design for page visi­tors.

We work tog­e­ther with adver­ti­sing part­ners who help us to make our web­site more inte­res­ting for you. For this pur­po­se, coo­kies from part­ner com­pa­nies are also stored on your device when you visit our web­site (third-par­ty coo­kies). You will be infor­med indi­vi­dual­ly and sepa­r­ate­ly about the use of such coo­kies and the scope of the infor­ma­ti­on collec­ted in each case wit­hin the fol­lo­wing sec­tions.

Plea­se note that you can set your brow­ser in such a way that you are infor­med about the set­ting of coo­kies and you can deci­de indi­vi­dual­ly about their accep­tan­ce or exclu­de the accep­tan­ce of coo­kies for some instan­ces only or gene­ral­ly. Each brow­ser dif­fers in the way it mana­ges the coo­kie set­tings; this is descri­bed in the Help menu of each brow­ser, which exp­lains how you can chan­ge your coo­kie set­tings. You will find the­se for the respec­tive brow­sers under the fol­lo­wing links:

Plea­se note that the func­tio­n­a­li­ty of our web­site may be limi­ted if coo­kies are not accep­ted.

4) Con­tact

In the con­text of con­tac­ting us (e.g. via con­tact form or email), per­so­nal data is collec­ted. Which infor­ma­ti­on is obtai­ned in the case of a con­tact form can be seen from the respec­tive con­tact form. The­se data are stored and used exclu­si­ve­ly to respond to your request, estab­li­shing con­tact, and for the asso­cia­ted tech­ni­cal admi­nis­tra­ti­on. The legal basis for pro­ces­sing data is our legi­ti­ma­te inte­rest in respon­ding to your request fol­lo­wing Sec­tion 6(1) let­ter f GDPR. If your con­tact is aimed to con­clu­de a con­tract, the addi­tio­nal legal basis for the pro­ces­sing will be Sec­tion 6(1) let­ter b GDPR. Your data will be dele­ted after final pro­ces­sing of your enqui­ry; this is the case if it can be infer­red from the cir­cum­s­tan­ces that the fac­ts in ques­ti­on have been final­ly cla­ri­fied, pro­vi­ded, that the­re are no legal sto­rage obli­ga­ti­ons to the con­tra­ry.

5) Data pro­ces­sing when ope­ning a custo­mer account and for con­tract pro­ces­sing

Under Sec­tion 6(1) let­ter b GDPR, per­so­nal data will con­ti­nue to be collec­ted and pro­ces­sed if you pro­vi­de them to us for the exe­cu­ti­on of a con­tract or when ope­ning a custo­mer account. Which data is obtai­ned can be seen from the respec­tive input forms. It is pos­si­ble to dele­te your custo­mer account at any time; this can be done by sen­ding a mes­sa­ge to the address men­tio­ned above of the respon­si­ble enti­ty. We only save and uti­li­se your data to pro­cess your con­tract. Once the agree­ment has been con­clu­ded, or your custo­mer account has been clo­sed, your data will be dele­ted accord­ing to the reten­ti­on peri­ods impo­sed by the laws gover­ning taxes and com­mer­ci­al tran­sac­tions. Once the reten­ti­on peri­od has been reached, your data will be dele­ted unless you have expli­citly agreed to the fur­ther use of your data or we have reser­ved the right, through legal chan­nels, to the con­ti­nued usa­ge of the data, in which case you will be infor­med accord­in­gly. Your data will be collec­ted (e.g. via the con­tact form or by email) while you are in con­tact with us. It is evi­dent from the respec­tive con­tact form, which data is collec­ted; this data is used and stored for the sole pur­po­se of reply­ing to your request, to con­tact you, and for the tech­ni­cal admi­nis­tra­ti­on con­nec­ted to it. Your data will be dele­ted as soon as your app­li­ca­ti­on has been pro­ces­sed, inso­far, you have requested this, and no legal data reten­ti­on requi­re­ments that pre­vent us from so doing exist.

6) Com­ment func­tion

As part of the com­ment func­tion on this web­site and in addi­ti­on to your com­ment, infor­ma­ti­on con­cer­ning the moment you ent­e­red the com­ment as well as the ali­as of the com­ment cho­sen by you will be saved and posted on this web­site. Fur­ther­mo­re, your IP address will be stored and published on this web­site in the con­text of the com­ment func­tion, this is done for secu­ri­ty rea­sons, in case the per­son con­cer­ned vio­la­tes the rights of third par­ties or posts ille­gal con­tent by sub­mit­ting a com­ment. We need your email address to con­tact you if a third par­ty should object to your published mate­ri­al as unlaw­ful.

7.1 Signing up for our elec­tro­nic news­let­ter

If you sub­scri­be to our email news­let­ter, we will send you regu­lar infor­ma­ti­on about our offers. The only man­dato­ry infor­ma­ti­on for trans­mit­ting the news­let­ter is your email address. The indi­ca­ti­on of addi­tio­nal pos­si­ble data is vol­un­ta­ry and is used to be able to address you per­so­nal­ly. We use the so-cal­led dou­ble opt-in pro­ce­du­re for sen­ding the news­let­ter; this means that we will not send you an email news­let­ter unless you have express­ly con­fir­med to us that you agree to the sen­ding of the news­let­ter. We will then send you a con­fir­ma­ti­on email asking you to pro­ve that you wish to recei­ve future news­let­ters by cli­cking on an appro­pria­te link.

By activat­ing the con­fir­ma­ti­on link, you give us your con­sent to the use of your data fol­lo­wing Sec­tion 6(1) let­ter a GDPR. When you regis­ter for the news­let­ter, we store your IP address ent­e­red by the Inter­net Ser­vice Pro­vi­der (ISP) as well as the date and time of regis­tra­ti­on so that we can trace any pos­si­ble misu­se of your email address at a later time. The data collec­ted by us when regis­te­ring for the news­let­ter will be used for adver­ti­sing through the news­let­ter. You can unsub­scri­be from the news­let­ter at any time via the link pro­vi­ded in the news­let­ter or by sen­ding a mes­sa­ge to the respon­si­ble enti­ty named above. After your can­cel­la­ti­on, your email address will imme­dia­te­ly be dele­ted from our news­let­ter dis­tri­bu­ti­on list, unless you have express­ly con­sen­ted to fur­ther use of your data or we reser­ve the right to use data in excess the­re­of, which is per­mit­ted by law and about which we inform you in this decla­ra­ti­on.

7.2 Sen­ding an elec­tro­nic news­let­ter to the exis­ting custo­mers

If you have pro­vi­ded us with your email address when purcha­sing pro­duc­ts, we reser­ve the right to regu­lar­ly send you offers for pro­duc­ts simi­lar to tho­se alrea­dy purcha­sed from our ran­ge by email. Accord­ing to Sec­tion 7(3) Ger­man law against unfair com­pe­ti­ti­on, we do not need to obtain sepa­ra­te con­sent from you for this. In this respect, data pro­ces­sing is car­ri­ed out sole­ly by our legi­ti­ma­te inte­rest in per­so­na­li­sed direct adver­ti­sing under Sec­tion 6(1) let­ter f GDPR. If you have initi­al­ly objec­ted to the use of your email address for this pur­po­se, we will not send you an email. You are ent­it­led to object to the use of your email address for the adver­ti­sing men­tio­ned above at any time with effect for the future by noti­fy­ing the respon­si­ble enti­ty named at the begin­ning. In so doing, you only have to pay deli­very costs accord­ing to the necessa­ry rates. Upon rece­ipt of your objec­tion, the use of your email address for adver­ti­sing pur­po­ses will cea­se imme­dia­te­ly.

7.3 News­let­ter dispatch via Cle­ver­Re­ach

Our email news­let­ter is sent by the tech­ni­cal ser­vice pro­vi­der Cle­ver­Re­ach GmbH & Co. KG, Müh­len­str. 43, 26180 Ras­tede ‘Cle­ver­Re­ach’, to which we pass on your data pro­vi­ded during the news­let­ter regis­tra­ti­on. This dis­clo­sure is made fol­lo­wing Sec­tion 6(1) let­ter f GDPR and ser­ves our legi­ti­ma­te inte­rest in the use of an effec­tive, secu­re and user-fri­end­ly news­let­ter sys­tem. The data you enter for news­let­ter sub­scrip­ti­on (e.g. email address) will be stored on CleverReach’s ser­vers in Ger­ma­ny and The Repu­blic of Ire­land.

Cle­ver­Re­ach uses this infor­ma­ti­on to send and sta­tis­ti­cal­ly eva­lua­te news­let­ters on our behalf. For eva­lua­ti­on pur­po­ses, the emails sent con­tain so-cal­led web beacons or tracking pixels, which rep­re­sent sin­gle-pixel image files stored on our web­site; this allows us to deter­mi­ne whe­ther a news­let­ter mes­sa­ge has been ope­ned and which links have been cli­cked on. With the help of the so-cal­led con­ver­si­on tracking, it can also be ana­ly­sed whe­ther a pre-defi­ned action (e.g., purcha­se of a pro­duct on our web­site) has taken place after cli­cking on the link in the news­let­ter. Also, tech­ni­cal infor­ma­ti­on is recor­ded (e.g. time of retrie­val, IP address, brow­ser type, and ope­ra­ting sys­tem). The data is exclu­si­ve­ly rai­sed in a pseud­ony­mi­sed for­mat and is not lin­ked with your other per­so­nal data to pre­vent you from being iden­ti­fied; this data is used sole­ly for sta­tis­ti­cal ana­ly­sis of
news­let­ter cam­pai­gns. The results of the­se ana­ly­ses can be used to adapt future news­let­ters to the inte­rests of the reci­pi­ents bet­ter.

If you wish to object to the data ana­ly­sis for sta­tis­ti­cal eva­lua­ti­on pur­po­ses, you must unsub­scri­be from the news­let­ter.

We have con­clu­ded an order pro­ces­sing agree­ment with Cle­ver­Re­ach obli­ging Cle­ver­Re­ach to pro­tect our custo­mers’ data and not to pass it on to third par­ties.

10) Use of soci­al media: vide­os

Use of You­Tube Vide­os

This web­site uses the You­Tube embed­ding func­tion for dis­play and play­back of vide­os offe­red by the pro­vi­der You­Tube, which belongs to Goog­le LLC, 1600 Amphi­thea­t­re Park­way, Moun­tain View, CA 94043, USA (Goog­le).

Here, the exten­ded data pro­tec­tion mode app­lies, which, accord­ing to the provider’s data, only begins saving user infor­ma­ti­on once a video has been star­ted. If an embed­ded You­Tube video is star­ted, the pro­vi­der, ‘You­Tube’ uses coo­kies, to collect infor­ma­ti­on about the user beha­viour. Accord­ing to infor­ma­ti­on from You­Tube, this infor­ma­ti­on ser­ves the pur­po­se, among others, of collec­ting video sta­tis­tics to impro­ve user-fri­end­li­ness and pre­vent abu­se. If you are log­ged in to Goog­le, your infor­ma­ti­on will be direc­t­ly asso­cia­ted with your account when you click on a video. If you do not wish to be asso­cia­ted with your pro­fi­le on You­Tube, you must log out befo­re activat­ing the but­ton. Goog­le stores your data (even for non-log­ged-in users) as user pro­files and eva­lua­tes them. Such an eva­lua­ti­on takes place in par­ti­cu­lar accord­ing to Sec­tion 6(1) let­ter f GDPR by the legi­ti­ma­te inte­rests of Goog­le in the inser­ti­on of per­so­na­li­sed adver­ti­sing, mar­ket rese­arch and demand-ori­en­ted design of its web­site. You have the right to object to the crea­ti­on of the­se user pro­files, wher­e­by you must con­tact You­Tube to exer­ci­se this right.

Inde­pendent­ly of a play­back of the embed­ded vide­os, a con­nec­tion to the Goog­le net­work ‘Dou­ble­Click’ is initia­ted every time you access this web­site. This can result in fur­ther data pro­ces­sing, upon which we have no influ­ence.

Use of Goog­le AdWords Con­ver­si­on Tracking

This web­site uses the online adver­ti­sing pro­gram ‘Goog­le AdWords’ and the con­ver­si­on tracking wit­hin the frame­work of Goog­le AdWords, Goog­le LLC, 1600 Amphi­thea­t­re Park­way, Moun­tain View, CA 94043, USA (Goog­le). We use the Goog­le Adwords pro­gram to draw atten­ti­on to our attrac­tive offers with the help of adver­ti­sing mate­ri­als on exter­nal web­sites. We can deter­mi­ne, con­cer­ning the adver­ti­sing cam­pai­gns data, how suc­cess­ful the indi­vi­du­al adver­ti­sing mea­su­res are. We are inte­rested in sho­wing you adver­ti­se­ments that are of inte­rest to you. We want to make our web­site more inte­res­ting for you and to achie­ve a fair cal­cu­la­ti­on of adver­ti­sing costs.

The con­ver­si­on tracking coo­kie is set on a user’s brow­ser, if he/she clicks on an AdWords ad deli­ve­r­ed by Goog­le. Coo­kies are small text files that are stored on your com­pu­ter sys­tem. The­se coo­kies expi­re in 30 days and are not used for per­so­nal iden­ti­fi­ca­ti­on. If you visit cer­tain pages of this web­site befo­re the coo­kie has beco­me inva­lid, both we and Goog­le can see that you have cli­cked on the ad and been for­war­ded to the web page in ques­ti­on. Every Goog­le AdWords custo­mer is assi­gned a dif­fe­rent coo­kie. The­re­fo­re, coo­kies can­not be tra­cked via the web­sites of AdWords custo­mers. The infor­ma­ti­on that is collec­ted via con­ver­si­on coo­kies ser­ves to pro­vi­de con­ver­si­on sta­tis­tics for AdWords custo­mers who have elec­ted to use the con­ver­si­on tracking func­tion. The custo­mers are pro­vi­ded with the total num­ber of users who have cli­cked on their ads, whe­r­eu­pon they are for­war­ded to a page that has a con­ver­si­on tracking tag. Howe­ver, they do not recei­ve any infor­ma­ti­on, with which they can iden­ti­fy the user per­so­nal­ly. If you do not want to par­ti­ci­pa­te in the tracking pro­gram, you can refu­se the use of this pro­gram by deac­tivat­ing the Goog­le Con­ver­si­on Tracking coo­kie via your Inter­net brow­ser through the user set­tings. In this case, you will not be inclu­ded in the con­ver­si­on tracking sta­tis­tics. We use Goog­le Adwords by our legi­ti­ma­te inte­rest in tar­ge­ted adver­ti­sing fol­lo­wing Sec­tion 6(1) let­ter f GDPR.

When you visit any of the sub­pages whe­re the Goog­le Maps map is incor­po­ra­ted, infor­ma­ti­on about your use of our web­site (such as your IP address) is trans­mit­ted to Google’s ser­vers in the United Sta­tes and stored the­re; this is done regard­less of whe­ther Goog­le pro­vi­des a user account that you are log­ged in to, or if the­re is no user account. If you are log­ged in to Goog­le, your infor­ma­ti­on will be direc­t­ly asso­cia­ted with your account. If you do not wish to be asso­cia­ted with your pro­fi­le on Goog­le, you must log out befo­re activat­ing the but­ton. Goog­le stores your data (even for non-log­ged-in users) as user pro­files and eva­lua­tes them. Such an eva­lua­ti­on takes place in par­ti­cu­lar accord­ing to Sec­tion 6(1) let­ter f GDPR by the legi­ti­ma­te inte­rests of Goog­le in the inser­ti­on of per­so­na­li­sed adver­ti­sing, mar­ket rese­arch and demand-ori­en­ted design of its web­site. You are ent­it­led to object to the crea­ti­on of the­se user pro­files. If you want to do so, you must con­tact Goog­le to exer­ci­se this right.
