§ 1 General
Thank you for your interest in our website. Data protection is very important to our company. Therefore, use of our website generally is possible without giving any personal data.

If you do not provide your email address, however, we cannot answer your email.
Processing of your personal data (e.g. form of address, name, address, email address, phone number) always takes place in harmony with the provisions of German data protection law and the data protection law of the European Union (EU GDPR). The following provisions will inform you about the purpose of the processing, legal basis, recipients and storage periods, as well as about your rights and the controller for processing activities concerning your data.

RIGHT TO OBJECT: You have the right to object to processing activities that take place based on point (f) of Article 6(1) GDPR and that do not serve direct marketing at any time based on reasons that result from your particular situation.
In case of direct marketing, you may object to processing at any time without giving any reasons, however.
(3) Legitimate interest
Our legitimate interest in processing is in communicating with you quickly and to answer your requests in a cost-efficient manner. If you inform us of your address, we reserve the right to use it for direct marketing by mail. Your interest in data protection can be preserved by sparingly passing on of data (e.g. using a pseudonym).
(4) Categories of recipients
Trading partners, payment service providers, shipping service providers, hosting providers, any goods management system, any suppliers (drop shipping), possibly the service department of manufacturers.
(5) Storage duration
Your data will be deleted when the circumstances show that your request or the corresponding matter has been finally completed.
However, if a contract is concluded, the data required under commercial and tax law will be kept by us for the periods required by law, i.e. usually for ten years (cf. Section 257 German Commercial Code, Section 148 Tax Code).
(6) Revocation right
You have the right to withdraw your consent at any time in case of processing based on your consent.
§ 5 Information about cookies
(1) Purpose of the processing
This website uses technically necessary cookies. These are small text files that are stored temporarily in or by your internet browser on your computer system. Such cookies permit. e.g., the placement of several products in a shopping cart.
Other cookies will remain permanently stored and recognise your browser again the next time you visit. Such cookies make it possible, e.g., to permanently store your passwords for a customer account.
(2) Legal basis
The legal basis for this processing shall be point (f) of Article 6(1) GDPR.
(3) Legitimate interest
Our legitimate interest is in the functionality of our website. The user data collected by the technically necessary cookies and the long-term cookies described here are not used to compile user profiles. This preserves your interest in data protection.
(4) Storage duration
The technically necessary cookies are usually deleted when your browser is closed. Permanently stored cookies have differently long lifetimes that can range from a few minutes to several years.
(5) RIGHT TO OBJECT
If you do not want your cookies to be stored, please deactivate acceptance of such cookies in your internet browser. This may, however, cause limitation of the function of our website. Permanently stored cookies can also be deleted at any time through your browser.
§ 6 Rights of the data subject
If any personal data concerning you are processed, you are a data subject within the meaning of GDPR and you have the following rights towards us:

You have the right to be informed on whether the personal data concerning you are transmitted to a third country or an international organisation. In this context, you may demand provision of information about suitable safeguards pursuant to Article 46 GDPR in connection with transmission.
2. Right to rectification
You have a right to rectification and/or completion towards us, provided that the personal data processed concerning you are inaccurate or incomplete. We must perform the rectification without undue delay.
3. Right to restriction of processing
You may demand restriction of processing of the personal data concerning you under the following condition:
(1) if you dispute the accuracy of the personal data concerning you for a duration that enables us to verify the accuracy of the personal data;
(2) if the processing is unlawful and you oppose the erasure of the personal data and requests the restriction of their use instead;
(3) if we no longer need the personal data for the purposes of the processing, but they are required by you for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims; or
(4) if you have objected to processing in accordance with Article 21(1) GDPR and it is not yet certain if our legitimate reasons override your reasons.
Where processing of the personal data concerning you has been restricted, such personal data must – with the exception of storage – only be processed with your consent or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of important public interest of the Union or of a Member State.
If the restriction of processing was limited according to the above conditions, you will be informed by us before the restriction is revoked.
4. Right to erasure
a) Erasure obligation
You may demand that we erase the personal data concerning you without undue delay and we are obligated to erase such data without undue delay if one of the following grounds applies:
(1) The personal data concerning you are no longer necessary in relation to the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed.
(2) You withdraw consent on which the processing was based according to point (a) of Article 6(1) or point (a) of Article 9(2) GDPR and there is no other legal basis for the processing.
(3) You object to processing in accordance with Article 21(1) GDPR and there are no overruling legitimate grounds for processing, or you object to processing in accordance with Article 21(2) GDPR.
(4) The personal data concerning you have been unlawfully processed.
(5) Erasure of the personal data concerning you is required for compliance with a legal obligation under Union or Member State law to which we are subject.
(6) The personal data concerning you have been collected in relation to the offer of information society services referred to in Article 8(1) GDPR.
b) Information to third parties
If we have made the personal data concerning you public and if we are obliged pursuant to Article 17(1) GDPR to erase the personal data, we shall take reasonable steps, including technical measures, taking account of available technology and the cost of implementation, to inform other controllers who are processing the personal data that you as the data subject have requested the erasure of by such controllers of any links to, or copy or replication of, those personal data.
The right to erasure shall not exist if processing is necessary
(1) for exercising the right of freedom of expression and information;
(2) for compliance with a legal obligation which requires processing by Union or Member State law to which we are subject, or for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller;
(3) for reasons of public interest within the area of public health in accordance with points (h) and (i) of Article 9(2) as well as Article 9(3) GDPR;
(4) for archiving purposes in the public interest, scientific or historical research purposes or statistical purposes in accordance with Article 89(1) GDPR in so far as the right referred to in point (a) is likely to render impossible or seriously impair the achievement of the objectives of that processing; or
(5) for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.
5. Right to provision of information
If you have asserted a right to rectification, erasure or restriction of processing towards us, we are obligated to inform all recipients to whom the personal data concerning you were disclosed of this rectification or erasure of data or reconstruction of processing, except if this turns out to be impossible or subject to unreasonable effort.
You have the right to provision of information about such recipients by us.
6. Right to data portability
You have the right to receive the personal data concerning you that you have provided to us in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format. You further have the right to have these data transmitted to another controller without impairment, provided that
(1) the processing is based on consent in accordance with point (a) of Article 6(1) GDPR or point (a) of Article 9(2) GDPR or a contract in accordance with point (b) of Article 6(1) GDPR, and
(2) the processing is carried out by automated means.
In exercising this right, you further have the right to demand that the personal data concerning you be transmitted directly from us to another controller, where technically feasible. Freedoms and rights of other persons must not be impaired by this.
That right to data portability shall not apply to processing of personal data necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the controller.
7. Right to object
You have the right to object, on grounds relating to your particular situation, at any time, to processing of personal data concerning you which is based on points (e) or (f) of Article 6(1) GDPR, including profiling based on those provisions.
We shall no longer process the personal data concerning you unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.
Where personal data concerning you are processed for direct marketing purposes, you shall have the right to object at any time to processing of personal data concerning you for such marketing, which includes profiling to the extent that it is related to such direct marketing.
If you object to processing for direct marketing purposes, the personal data concerning you shall no longer be processed for such purposes.
You have the option to exercise the right to object in connection with use of information society services, irrespective of directive 2002/58/EC, where technical specifications are used.
8. Right to revocation of the declaration of consent under data protection law
You have the right to revoke your declaration of consent under data protection law at any time. The withdrawal of consent shall not affect the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal.
9. Automated decision-making in an individual case, including profiling
You have the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing – including profiling – which produces legal effects concerning you or similarly significantly affects you. This shall not apply if the decision
(1) is necessary for entering into, or performance of, a contract between you and us,
(2) is authorised by provisions of Union or Member State law to which we are subject and which also lays down suitable measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests or
(3) is made with your express consent.
However, such decisions shall not be based on special categories of personal data referred to in Article 9(1) GDPR, unless point (a) or (g) of Article 9(2) GDPR applies and suitable measures to safeguard the rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests are in place.
Regarding the cases named in (1) and (3), we will take appropriate measures in order to preserve the rights and freedoms as well as your legitimate interests.
10. Right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority
Without prejudice to any other administrative or judicial remedy, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the Member State of your habitual residence, place of work or place of the alleged infringement, if you consider that the processing of personal data relating to you infringes the GDPR.
The supervisory authority with which the complaint has been lodged shall inform the complainant on the progress and the outcome of the complaint including the possibility of a judicial remedy pursuant to Article 78.
The supervisory authority relevant for us is:
The state officer for data protection and freedom of information in Baden-Württemberg,
Königstrasse 10 a
We would like to point out that the data transmission on the internet (e.g. in the case of email communication) may involve gaps in security. Complete protection of the data against third-party access is not possible.
We hereby expressly object to the use by third parties of the contact data published within the scope of the imprint obligation for the transmission of not expressly requested advertisements and information materials. The providers of the pages expressly reserve the right to take legal action in the case of transmission of non-solicited advertising material, for example, by way of spam mails.
Data privacy in case of applications and the application procedure
The data controller collects and processes the personal data of applicants for the purpose of processing the application procedure. Processing may also take place by electronic means. This is specifically the case if an applicant transmits the corresponding application documents to the data controller electronically, e.g. by email or via a web form on the website.
If the data controller concludes an employment contract with an applicant, the transmitted data will be stored for the purpose of the employment relationship, under observation of the legal rules.
If no employment contract is concluded between the data controller and the applicant, the application documents will usually be deleted three months after disclosure of the negative decision, provided that erasure is not opposed by any other legitimate interests of the data controller or if the applicant and the data controller have an interest in longer storage of the application documents or the longer storage is explicitly desired by the applicant.
Other legitimate interests in this meaning shall include evidence obligations in proceedings under the general law on equal treatment (Allgemeines Gleichbehandlungsgesetz; AGG).
Content of the online offer
The author assumes no warranty that the information provided is up to date, accurate, complete or of a specific quality. Liability claims against the author concerning damage from use or non-use of the provided information or the use of defective and incomplete information shall be generally excluded if the author is not at fault for verifiably wilful or grossly negligent fault. All offers are subject to confirmation and non-binding. The author expressly reserves changing, supplementing, deleting parts of pages or the entire offer without separate announcement or to temporarily or finally cease publication.
References and links
Upon direct or indirect references to third-party websites (“hyperlinks”) that are outside of the author’s area of responsibility, a liability obligation would only apply if the author has knowledge of the contents and if it would be technically possible and reasonable for him to prevent use in case of illegal contents. The author hereby explicitly declares that no illegal contents were evident on the linked-to pages at the time the links were placed. The author cannot influence the current and future design, contents or copyright of the linked-to/connected pages. Therefore, he hereby explicitly disassociates himself from all contents of all linked-to/connected pages that were changed after the links were placed. This statement applies to all links and references placed within the own website, as well as to any third-party entries in guestbooks, discussion forums, link directories, mailing lists and any other forms of databases set up by the author and the contents of which are subject to external writing access. The provider of the website that is referred to shall be solely liable for any illegal, defective or incomplete contents and in particular for damage resulting from use or non-use of any information provided in this manner, but not the person who merely refers to the respective publication via links.
Copyright and trademark law
The author strives to observe the copyrights in the images, figures, sound documents, video sequences and texts used in any publications, to use images, figures, sound documents, video sequences and texts compiled by him directly or to use license-free figures, sound documents, video sequences and texts. All brands and trademarks named within the website that may be protected by any third parties shall be subject to the provisions of the respective applicable trademark law and property rights of the respective registered owners without limitation. The mere naming shall not give rise to the conclusion that the trademarks are not protected by third-party rights! The copyright for published objects created by the author directly shall remain with the author of the pages alone. Reproduction or use of such figures, sound documents, video sequences and texts in any other electronic or printed publications shall not be permitted without the explicit consent of the author.
This disclaimer is to be viewed as part of the website from which this page was referred to. If parts or individual phrasings of this text do not, no longer or not completely correspond to the applicable legal situation, the remaining parts of the document shall remain unaffected by this in content and validity.

Integration of plugins of social networks
Why Social Plugins?
We would like to reach the greatest possible group of potential customers and use Social Plugins for this on our websites in order to reach the social networks such as Facebook and Twitter. To avoid doing this by accident, you need to activate the buttons first. Usually, we will also inform you about data being passed on by showing a note with the buttons.
Our website uses plugins of the page YouTube operated by Google. The provider of the pages is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. When you visit one of our pages equipped with a YouTube plugin, a connection to servers of YouTube will be established. This informs the YouTube server on which of our pages you have visited.
If you are logged in to your YouTube account, you enable YouTube to associate your surfing behaviour with you personally. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account first.
For more information on handling user data, see the data protection statement of YouTube under: https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy.
Use of web analysis tools and display of usage-based advertisements
Why web-analysis tools?
We would like to continually improve our services, keep them at the state of the art and offer you a safe, smooth, efficient and personal user experience. For this purpose, we evaluate general information, such as the number and duration of calls of our websites, and the internet browser used for this, according to the proviso of the following items.
If you have declared your consent, this website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google LLC (“Google”). Use comprises the operating mode “Universal Analytics”. This makes it possible to assign data, sessions and interactions to one user-ID pseudonym across several devices and to thus analyse a user’s activities across devices. This data protection information is provided by www.intersoft-consulting.de.
Google Analytics uses “cookies”, i.e. text files that are stored on your computer and that permit analysis of your use of the website. The information produced by the cookie regarding your use of this website is usually transmitted to a server of Google in the USA and stored there. If Internet Protocol address anonymisation was activated on this website, your Internet Protocol address will be shortened by Google, however, within the member states of the European Union or in other states that are party to the Treaty on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional circumstances will your full Internet Protocol address be transmitted to a server of Google in the USA and abbreviated there. Note that Google Analytics has been expanded by the IP anonymisation on this website, in order to ensure anonymised recording of internet protocol address (IP masking). The Internet Protocol address transmitted by your browser within the context of Google Analytics will not be combined with any other Data from Google. For more detailed information on usage conditions and data protection, see https://www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html or under https://policies.google.com/?hl=de.
Purposes of processing
On behalf of the provider of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, in order to compile reports on the website activities and to provide further services connected to website use and internet use towards the website operator.
The legal basis for use of Google Analytics is point (a), sentence 1 of Article 6(1) GDPR.
Recipients / categories of recipients
The recipient of the collected data is Google.
Transfer to third countries
The personal data are transmitted to the USA under the EU-US Privacy Shield based on the adequacy decision of the European Commission. You can call up the certificate here.
Duration of data storage
The data sent by us and linked to cookies, user IDs (e.g. User-ID) or advertising IDs are automatically deleted after 14 months. Erasure of data the archiving period of which has expired shall take place automatically once per month.
Rights of data subjects
You may revoke you may revoke your consent at any time, effective for the future if you prevent storage of the cookies by making the corresponding settings in your browser software; however, note that you may be unable to fully use all functions of the website in that case.
You may furthermore prevent recording of the data generated by the cookie and referring to your use of the website (incl. your Internet Protocol address) by Google and processing of these personal data by Google by downloading and installing a browser add-on. Opt-out cookies prevent the future recording of your personal data when visiting this website. In order to prevent the recording by Universal Analytics across various devices, you need to perform the opt-out on all systems used. If you click here, the opt-out cookie is set: Deactivate Google Analytics
Google Adwords Conversion Tracking
We also use Google Conversion tracking as an AdWords customer. If you have reached our website through an ad on Google, Google Adwords will place a cookie on your computer. The cookie for conversion tracking is used when a user clicks an ad placed by Google. These cookies will be rendered invalid after 30 days and are not used to identify you in person. If the user visits specific pages of our website and the cookie has not expired yet, we and Google will be able to tell that the user has clicked the display and was forwarded to this site. Every Google AdWords client will receive a different cookie. Cookies cannot thus be tracked via the websites of AdWords clients. The information collected by the conversion cookie is used to compile conversion statistics for AdWords clients who have decided to use conversion tracking. The clients learn the total number of users who have clicked their ad and have been forwarded to a site supplied with a conversion tracking tag. However, they will not receive any information with which the users can be identified in person.
If you want to opt out from tracking, you can refuse setting of the cookie required for this – e.g. by setting your browser to generally deactivate automatic setting of cookies, or by setting your browser so that Cookies from the domain “googleleadservices.com” are blocked. Please note that you must not delete the opt-out cookie while you do not want any measurements to be recorded. If you have deleted all cookies in your browser, you must set the respective opt-out cookie again.
