2. General and Mandatory Information

Data protection

The operators of these pages are committed to the security of your personal data. We treat your personal data confidentially and in compliance with legal data protection regulations and this data protection policy.

Different types of personal data are collected when you use this website. Personal data includes data with which you can be personally identified. This data protection policy explains what kind of data is captured and what it is used for. It also explains how and for what purpose this is done.

Please note that data transmission via the internet (e.g. communication by email) may be subject to security loopholes. The complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.

Information on the controlling body

The controlling body for data processing on this website is:

transmit-Deutschland GmbH&Co. KG

Professor-Kück-Straße 2

D-21279 – Hollenstedt

Telephone: +49 (0)4165 – 216 23 – 0

Email: info@transmit-deutschland.de

The controlling body is the natural person or legal entity who/which individually or jointly decides on the purposes and means of processing personal data (such as names, email addresses, etc.).

Withdrawal of Your Consent to Data Processing

Many data processing procedures are only possible with your explicit consent. You are entitled to withdraw your consent at any time. To do this, an informal notice sent via e-mail to us is sufficient. The withdrawal does not affect the lawfulness of the data processing carried out up to the withdrawal.

Right to object to data collection in special cases and direct marketing (Art. 21 GDPR)

If data processing is based on Art. 6 (1) (e or f) GDPR, you have the right at any time to object to the processing of your personal data for reasons pertaining to your particular situation; this also applies to profiling based on these provisions. You can find the relevant legal basis for any processing in this data protection policy. If you object, we will no longer process your relevant personal data unless we can provide compelling reasons for the processing which outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves to establish, exercise or defend legal claims (objection pursuant to Art. 21 (1) GDPR).

If your personal data are processed for the purpose of direct marketing, you have the right to object at any time to the processing of the personal data concerning you for such purposes; this also applies to profiling where it is connected to such direct marketing. If you object, your personal data will no longer be used for the purpose of direct marketing (objection pursuant to Art. 21 (2) GDPR).

Right to lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority

In the event of violations of the GDPR, the data subject has the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the member state of their habitual residence, their place of work or the place of the alleged violation. The right to lodge a complaint is without prejudice to any administrative or judicial remedies.

Right to Data Portability

You have the right to request data which we have processed by automated means on the basis of your consent or in order to implement a contract, to be handed over to you or to a third party, in a commonly used and machine-readable format. If you request the direct transfer of the data to another controller, this will only be done where technically feasible.

SSL or TLS Encryption

For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content such as orders or requests that you send to us as the site operator, this site uses SSL or TLS encryption. You can detect an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from “http://” to “https://”, and by the lock icon in your browser bar.

If SSL or TSL encryption is activated, the data that you send to us cannot be read by third parties.

Access, Blocking, Erasure and Rectification

Within the scope of statutory provisions, you have the right at any time to obtain free information about your stored personal data, its origin and recipients and the purpose of data processing, and if appropriate, the right to rectification, blocking or erasure of such data provided their further storage is not required on the basis of legal obligations (e.g. in accordance with regulations in the German Commercial Code governing duties of retention) which we have to observe. If you have further questions on this or your personal data, you can contact us at any time at the address given in the legal notice.

Right to restriction of processing

You have the right to request that the processing of your personal data be restricted. You can contact us at the address given in the legal notice at any time. The right to restrict processing applies in the following cases:

  • If you contest the accuracy of your personal data stored with us, we usually need some time to check it. For the duration of the verification process, you have the right to request that the processing of your personal data be restricted.
  • If your personal data was/is processed illegally, you can request the restriction of the data processing instead of deletion of the data.
  • If we no longer need your personal data, but you need it to exercise, defend or assert legal claims, you have the right to request that the processing of your personal data be restricted instead of deleted.
  • If you have filed an objection in accordance with Art. 21 (1) GDPR, your interests and our interests must be weighed up. As long as it is not clear whose interests predominate, you will have the right to request that the processing of your personal data be restricted.

If you have restricted the processing of your personal data, this data – apart from its storage – may only be processed with your consent or to assert, exercise or defend legal claims or to protect the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of an important public interest of the European Union or a Member State.

3. Data Capture on our Website

Cookies

The website makes partial use of what are referred to as cookies. Cookies do not cause any damage to your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies make our site more user-friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser.

The majority of the cookies we use are “session cookies”. They are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Other cookies remain saved on your device until you delete them. These cookies enable us to identify your browser on your next visit.

You can adjust your browser settings to be alerted when cookies are placed on your system and to only allow cookies in individual cases. You can also choose to disable cookies either in specific circumstances or in general, and you can enable the automatic deletion of cookies when you close your browser. The functionality of this website may be restricted if cookies are disabled.

Cookies that are required to carry out the electronic communication process or to provide certain functions you desire (e.g. the shopping basket function), are stored based on Art. 6 (1) f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in storing cookies in order to be able to provide technically error-free and optimised services. To the extent that other cookies (e.g. cookies for the analysis of your surfing behaviour) are stored, they will be addressed separately in this data protection policy.

The provider of the web pages collects and saves information automatically in so-called server log files which are automatically sent to us by your browser. This information comprises:

  • type and version of browsers
  • operating system in use
  • referrer URL
  • host name of the accessing computer
  • time of server enquiry
  • IP address

This data will not be collated with other data sources.

The collection of the data is based on Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the technically error-free presentation and optimisation of its website – the server log files must be recorded for this purpose.

4. Analysis tools and marketing

Google Analytics

This website uses functions of the web analysis service Google Analytics. It is supplied by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”. These are text files, stored on your computer that enable an analysis of how you use our website. The information generated by the cookie about your usage of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

The storage of Google Analytics cookies and use of this analytical tool are based on Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analysing user behaviour for the optimisation of its website as well as for marketing purposes.

IP anonymisation

We have enabled the IP anonymisation function on this website. As a result, your IP address will be truncated by Google within Member States of the European Union or other signatories to the Agreement on the European Economic Area prior to its transfer to the United States. Only in exceptional circumstances will your full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. Google will use this information on behalf of this website operator to analyse your use of this website, to compile reports about the website activities and to provide additional services to the website operator in regard to use of the website and internet. The IP address transmitted from your browser by Google Analytics will not be combined with other Google data.

Browser Plug-in

You can prevent the storage of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings in your browser; however, we would like to point out that in such cases you might not be able to use the full functionality of this website. In addition, you may prevent the transfer of the data created by the cookie concerning your use of this website (including your IP address) to Google and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.

Objection to data collection

You can prevent the collection of your data by Google Analytics by clicking on the following link. This will install an opt-out cookie that will prevent the collection of your data when you visit this website in the future: [gaoptoutstart]Disabling Google Analytics[gaoptoutend].

Further information on the handling of user data by Google Analytics can be found in Google’s data protection policy at: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=de.

Contract processing

We have concluded an agreement with Google for contract processing and fully implement the strict regulations of German data protection authorities for the use of Google Analytics.

Demographic features in Google Analytics

This website uses the Google Analytics “demographics feature” function. As a result, reports can be prepared that contain statements on the age, gender and interests of web page visitors. This data originates from interest-based advertising by Google, as well as visitor data from third-party providers. This data cannot be identified with a specific person. You can disable this function at any time in the Ad Settings of your Google account, or generally disable the collection of your data by Google Analytics as outlined in the “Objection to Data Collection” section.

5. Plugins and Tools
