PRIVACY POLICY / DATENSCHUTZERKLÄRUNG

Per­son­al data (usu­al­ly referred to just as “data” below) will only be processed by us to the extent nec­es­sary and for the pur­pose of pro­vid­ing a func­tion­al and user-friend­ly web­site, includ­ing its con­tents, and the ser­vices offered there.

Per Art. 4 No. 1 of Reg­u­la­tion (EU) 2016/679, i.e. the Gen­er­al Data Pro­tec­tion Reg­u­la­tion (here­inafter referred to as the “GDPR”), “pro­cess­ing” refers to any oper­a­tion or set of oper­a­tions such as col­lec­tion, record­ing, orga­ni­za­tion, struc­tur­ing, stor­age, adap­ta­tion, alter­ation, retrieval, con­sul­ta­tion, use, dis­clo­sure by trans­mis­sion, dis­sem­i­na­tion, or oth­er­wise mak­ing avail­able, align­ment, or com­bi­na­tion, restric­tion, era­sure, or destruc­tion per­formed on per­son­al data, whether by auto­mat­ed means or not.

The fol­low­ing pri­va­cy pol­i­cy is intend­ed to inform you in par­tic­u­lar about the type, scope, pur­pose, dura­tion, and legal basis for the pro­cess­ing of such data either under our own con­trol or in con­junc­tion with oth­ers. We also inform you below about the third-par­ty com­po­nents we use to opti­mize our web­site and improve the user expe­ri­ence which may result in said third par­ties also pro­cess­ing data they col­lect and control.

Our pri­va­cy pol­i­cy is struc­tured as follows:

I. Infor­ma­tion about us as con­trollers of your data
II. The rights of users and data sub­jects
III. Infor­ma­tion about the data processing

I. Information about us as controllers of your data

The par­ty respon­si­ble for this web­site (the “con­troller”) for pur­pos­es of data pro­tec­tion law is:

Karsten Flämig
Vor dem Stein­tor 103

Email: contact@flaemyng.com
Phone: 0157 850 74 701

The controller’s data pro­tec­tion offi­cer is:
Karsten Flämig

II. The rights of users and data subjects

With regard to the data pro­cess­ing to be described in more detail below, users and data sub­jects have the right

  • to con­fir­ma­tion of whether data con­cern­ing them is being processed, infor­ma­tion about the data being processed, fur­ther infor­ma­tion about the nature of the data pro­cess­ing, and copies of the data (cf. also Art. 15 GDPR);
  • to cor­rect or com­plete incor­rect or incom­plete data (cf. also Art. 16 GDPR);
  • to the imme­di­ate dele­tion of data con­cern­ing them (cf. also Art. 17 DSGVO), or, alter­na­tive­ly, if fur­ther pro­cess­ing is nec­es­sary as stip­u­lat­ed in Art. 17 Para. 3 GDPR, to restrict said pro­cess­ing per Art. 18 GDPR;
  • to receive copies of the data con­cern­ing them and/or pro­vid­ed by them and to have the same trans­mit­ted to oth­er providers/controllers (cf. also Art. 20 GDPR);
  • to file com­plaints with the super­vi­so­ry author­i­ty if they believe that data con­cern­ing them is being processed by the con­troller in breach of data pro­tec­tion pro­vi­sions (see also Art. 77 GDPR).

In addi­tion, the con­troller is oblig­ed to inform all recip­i­ents to whom it dis­clos­es data of any such cor­rec­tions, dele­tions, or restric­tions placed on pro­cess­ing the same per Art. 16, 17 Para. 1, 18 GDPR. How­ev­er, this oblig­a­tion does not apply if such noti­fi­ca­tion is impos­si­ble or involves a dis­pro­por­tion­ate effort. Nev­er­the­less, users have a right to infor­ma­tion about these recipients.

Like­wise, under Art. 21 GDPR, users and data sub­jects have the right to object to the controller’s future pro­cess­ing of their data pur­suant to Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f) GDPR. In par­tic­u­lar, an objec­tion to data pro­cess­ing for the pur­pose of direct adver­tis­ing is permissible.

III. Information about the data processing

Your data processed when using our web­site will be delet­ed or blocked as soon as the pur­pose for its stor­age ceas­es to apply, pro­vid­ed the dele­tion of the same is not in breach of any statu­to­ry stor­age oblig­a­tions or unless oth­er­wise stip­u­lat­ed below.

Cookies

a) Session cookies

We use cook­ies on our web­site. Cook­ies are small text files or oth­er stor­age tech­nolo­gies stored on your com­put­er by your brows­er. These cook­ies process cer­tain spe­cif­ic infor­ma­tion about you, such as your brows­er, loca­tion data, or IP address. 

This pro­cess­ing makes our web­site more user-friend­ly, effi­cient, and secure, allow­ing us, for exam­ple, to dis­play our web­site in dif­fer­ent lan­guages or to offer a shop­ping cart function.

The legal basis for such pro­cess­ing is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b) GDPR, inso­far as these cook­ies are used to col­lect data to ini­ti­ate or process con­trac­tu­al relationships.

If the pro­cess­ing does not serve to ini­ti­ate or process a con­tract, our legit­i­mate inter­est lies in improv­ing the func­tion­al­i­ty of our web­site. The legal basis is then Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f) GDPR.

When you close your brows­er, these ses­sion cook­ies are deleted.

b) Third-party cookies

If nec­es­sary, our web­site may also use cook­ies from com­pa­nies with whom we coop­er­ate for the pur­pose of adver­tis­ing, ana­lyz­ing, or improv­ing the fea­tures of our website.

Please refer to the fol­low­ing infor­ma­tion for details, in par­tic­u­lar for the legal basis and pur­pose of such third-par­ty col­lec­tion and pro­cess­ing of data col­lect­ed through cookies.

c) Disabling cookies

You can refuse the use of cook­ies by chang­ing the set­tings on your brows­er. Like­wise, you can use the brows­er to delete cook­ies that have already been stored. How­ev­er, the steps and mea­sures required vary, depend­ing on the brows­er you use. If you have any ques­tions, please use the help func­tion or con­sult the doc­u­men­ta­tion for your brows­er or con­tact its mak­er for sup­port. Brows­er set­tings can­not pre­vent so-called flash cook­ies from being set. Instead, you will need to change the set­ting of your Flash play­er. The steps and mea­sures required for this also depend on the Flash play­er you are using. If you have any ques­tions, please use the help func­tion or con­sult the doc­u­men­ta­tion for your Flash play­er or con­tact its mak­er for support.

If you pre­vent or restrict the instal­la­tion of cook­ies, not all of the func­tions on our site may be ful­ly usable.

Contact

If you con­tact us via email or the con­tact form, the data you pro­vide will be used for the pur­pose of pro­cess­ing your request. We must have this data in order to process and answer your inquiry; oth­er­wise we will not be able to answer it in full or at all.

The legal basis for this data pro­cess­ing is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b) GDPR.

Your data will be delet­ed once we have ful­ly answered your inquiry and there is no fur­ther legal oblig­a­tion to store your data, such as if an order or con­tract result­ed therefrom.

YouTube

We main­tain an online pres­ence on YouTube to present our com­pa­ny and our ser­vices and to com­mu­ni­cate with customers/prospects. YouTube is a ser­vice of Google Ire­land Lim­it­ed, Gor­don House, Bar­row Street, Dublin 4, Ire­land, a sub­sidiary of Google LLC, 1600 Amphithe­ater Park­way, Moun­tain View, CA 94043 USA.

We would like to point out that this might cause user data to be processed out­side the Euro­pean Union, par­tic­u­lar­ly in the Unit­ed States. This may increase risks for users that, for exam­ple, may make sub­se­quent access to the user data more dif­fi­cult. We also do not have access to this user data. Access is only avail­able to YouTube.

Facebook

To adver­tise our prod­ucts and ser­vices as well as to com­mu­ni­cate with inter­est­ed par­ties or cus­tomers, we have a pres­ence on the Face­book platform.

On this social media plat­form, we are joint­ly respon­si­ble with Face­book Ire­land Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Har­bor, Dublin 2, Ireland.

The data pro­tec­tion offi­cer of Face­book can be reached via this con­tact form:

We have defined the joint respon­si­bil­i­ty in an agree­ment regard­ing the respec­tive oblig­a­tions with­in the mean­ing of the GDPR. This agree­ment, which sets out the rec­i­p­ro­cal oblig­a­tions, is avail­able at the fol­low­ing link:

https://www.facebook.com/legal/terms/page_controller_addendum

The legal basis for the pro­cess­ing of the result­ing and sub­se­quent­ly dis­closed per­son­al data is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. Our legit­i­mate inter­est lies in the analy­sis, com­mu­ni­ca­tion, sales, and pro­mo­tion of our prod­ucts and services.

The legal basis may also be your con­sent per Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR grant­ed to the plat­form oper­a­tor. Per Art. 7 para. 3 GDPR, you may revoke this con­sent with the plat­form oper­a­tor at any time with future effect.

When access­ing our online pres­ence on the Face­book plat­form, Face­book Ire­land Ltd. as the oper­a­tor of the plat­form in the EU will process your data (e.g. per­son­al infor­ma­tion, IP address, etc.).

This data of the user is used for sta­tis­ti­cal infor­ma­tion on the use of our com­pa­ny pres­ence on Face­book. Face­book Ire­land Ltd. uses this data for mar­ket research and adver­tis­ing pur­pos­es as well as for the cre­ation of user pro­files.

Face­book Ire­land Ltd. might also set cook­ies when pro­cess­ing your data.

If you do not agree to this pro­cess­ing, you have the option of pre­vent­ing the instal­la­tion of cook­ies by mak­ing the appro­pri­ate set­tings in your brows­er. Cook­ies that have already been saved can be delet­ed at any time. The instruc­tions to do this depend on the brows­er and sys­tem being used. For Flash cook­ies, the pro­cess­ing can­not be pre­vent­ed by the set­tings in your brows­er, but instead by mak­ing the appro­pri­ate set­tings in your Flash play­er. If you pre­vent or restrict the instal­la­tion of cook­ies, not all of the func­tions of Face­book may be ful­ly usable.

Social media links via graphics

We also inte­grate the fol­low­ing social media sites into our web­site. The inte­gra­tion takes place via a linked graph­ic of the respec­tive site. The use of these graph­ics stored on our own servers pre­vents the auto­mat­ic con­nec­tion to the servers of these net­works for their dis­play. Only by click­ing on the cor­re­spond­ing graph­ic will you be for­ward­ed to the ser­vice of the respec­tive social network.

Once you click, that net­work may record infor­ma­tion about you and your vis­it to our site. It can­not be ruled out that such data will be processed in the Unit­ed States.

Ini­tial­ly, this data includes such things as your IP address, the date and time of your vis­it, and the page vis­it­ed. If you are logged into your user account on that net­work, how­ev­er, the net­work oper­a­tor might assign the infor­ma­tion col­lect­ed about your vis­it to our site to your per­son­al account. If you inter­act by click­ing Like, Share, etc., this infor­ma­tion can be stored your per­son­al user account and pos­si­bly post­ed on the respec­tive net­work. To pre­vent this, you need to log out of your social media account before click­ing on the graph­ic. The var­i­ous social media net­works also offer set­tings that you can con­fig­ure accordingly.

The fol­low­ing social net­works are inte­grat­ed into our site by linked graphics:

Facebook plug-in

Our web­site uses the plug-in of the Face­book social net­work. Facebook.com is a ser­vice pro­vid­ed by Face­book Inc., 1601 S. Cal­i­for­nia Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA. In the EU, this ser­vice is also oper­at­ed by Face­book Ire­land Lim­it­ed, 4 Grand Canal Square, Dublin 2, Ire­land, here­inafter both referred to as “Face­book.”

The legal basis is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f) GDPR. Our legit­i­mate inter­est lies in improv­ing the qual­i­ty of our website.

Fur­ther infor­ma­tion about the pos­si­ble plug-ins and their respec­tive func­tions is avail­able from Face­book at

https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/

If the plug-in is stored on one of the pages you vis­it on our web­site, your brows­er will down­load an icon for the plug-in from Facebook’s servers in the USA. For tech­ni­cal rea­sons, it is nec­es­sary for Face­book to process your IP address. In addi­tion, the date and time of your vis­it to our web­site will also be recorded.

If you are logged in to Face­book while vis­it­ing one of our plugged-in web­sites, the infor­ma­tion col­lect­ed by the plug-in from your spe­cif­ic vis­it will be rec­og­nized by Face­book. The infor­ma­tion col­lect­ed may then be assigned to your per­son­al account at Face­book. If, for exam­ple, you use the Face­book Like but­ton, this infor­ma­tion will be stored in your Face­book account and pub­lished on the Face­book plat­form. If you want to pre­vent this, you must either log out of Face­book before vis­it­ing our web­site or use an add-on for your brows­er to pre­vent the Face­book plug-in from loading.
