Data protection

Data protection declaration

GENERAL

We lay great store on the protection of your personal data and collect, process and use such data exclusively in agreement with the following principles and in compliance with current data protection law.

Your personal data

Personal data means all the information relating to a specific or identifiable individual. Such information may include, for example, your name, your telephone number and your postal or email addresses.

Scope of data collection, processing and use

If you are simply visiting the Stolzenberg GmbH website, you will not be asked to share any of your personal data with us. It is not possible to use the access data collected during your visit (e.g. the name of your Internet provider, requested files and the date of their retrieval) to establish any reference to you as an individual without additional data that is not made available to us (e.g. information from your Internet provider).  Any data we capture is used solely for the purposes of improving our product range. Personal data, which could be used to refer to you as an individual, is only collected and stored after you have voluntarily communicated it as, for example, when completing the email contact form on our website. In this case, we comply with the data protection regulations of the Telemedia Act (TMG), the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and other legal data protection specifications.

Moreover, we only collect, process and use your personal data, after you have given us express permission to do so.

Use of contact, registration and application forms

The contact, registration and application forms made available on the Stolzenberg GmbH website allow you to make direct contact with us. When using these forms, we collect, process and use the information communicated by you exclusively for the processing of your particular request. Once your email has reached our server, it will be only be read by our employees. However, please be aware, that the non-encrypted transmission of data via the Internet always represents a security risk. It is simply not possible to fully protect data from access by a third party, particularly where such data is sent unencrypted by email.

Newsletter

Once you have registered for the Stolzenberg GmbH Newsletter, we use the information you have given us exclusively for the sending out of our newsletters.   If at any time you decide to terminate your newsletter subscription, your data will immediately be deleted. You can terminate your subscription at any time using the link contained in the Newsletter.

Cookies

When you visit the Stolzenberg GmbH website, we install “cookies”. Cookies are small text files, which are deposited in the buffer of your browser. The information contained in these cookies might, for example, allow your chosen language of communication to be captured and stored. Cookies also allow your surfing behaviour to be analysed anonymously and (for example) the data and time of access, the URL (address) of the referring website, the webpages you have visited, and also the type and version of the browser and operating system you are using to be recorded. Nevertheless, it is not possible to associate any of this data to a given individual. The data contains no information, which can be traced back to any particular user. Personal data is only stored in the cookies, where you have expressly consented thereto.

By means of your browser settings, you can completely exclude the use of cookies, or delete any which were previously installed. We would like to point out, however, that some areas of the website may then not function as they should or become completely inaccessible.

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies” (see above). Information about your use of the website (including your IP address) is generated by the cookies, sent to a Google server in the USA and retained.

The information Google captures is used to evaluate your website behaviour, in order to produce reports on website activity for the site provider and offer additional services linked to the use of the website and the Internet. Where appropriate, Google may choose to share this information with third parties, either in accordance with legal requirements or where these third parties are commissioned by Google to process the captured data. Under no circumstances will Google use your IP address in connection with other data it has captured.

You are able to prevent the installation of cookies, by means of the relevant settings in your browser software (see above).  You can also prevent any information generated by the cookies and relating to your use of the website (including your IP address) being captured and processed by Google, by downloading and installing a browser plug-in.
