Obligatory information required for processing contracts is identified as such, all other information is voluntary. We process the data you provide in order to process your order. For this purpose, we may transmit payment data to our firm's bank. The legal foundation for this is Art. 6 section 1 (b) GDPR.

  4. Based on the payment option "Payment on account" offered by us and on the foundation of Art. 6 section 1 (f) GDPR, we reserve the right to safeguard our legitimate interest, in particular to protect ourselves from payment default and misuse of our online shop, by requesting an identity and credit check from service providers specialised on this purpose (credit agencies).

6. Newsletter

  1. With your consent you can subscribe to our newsletter, which we use to inform you about current interesting offers.
  2. We use a "double-opt-in" process for subscription to our newsletter. That means we send an e-mail to the indicated e-mail address after you have subscribed, asking for your confirmation that you wish to receive the newsletter. If you do not confirm your registration within 24 hours, your information will be blocked and automatically deleted after one month. Moreover, we save your IP addresses and the times of registration and confirmation. The purpose of this process is to prove your registration and clear up a misuse of your personal data, if necessary.
  3. The only obligatory information for receiving our newsletter is your e-mail address. Additional, separately identified data can be provided on a voluntary basis and is used to address you personally. After your confirmation, we store your e-mail address to be able to send you our newsletter. The legal foundation for this is Art. 6 section 1 (a) GDPR.
  4. You can withdraw your consent to receiving the newsletter at any time and unsubscribe from the newsletter. To withdraw your consent, click on the link provided in each newsletter e-mail, send an e-mail to disagree@dmgmori.com or send a message to the previously indicated contact data.
  5. We would like to notify you that we evaluate your user behaviour when sending our newsletter. For this evaluation, the sent e-mails contain so-called web beacons or tracking pixels, i.e. one-pixel image files saved on our websites. For evaluation, we associate the data indicated in section 3 and the web beacons with your e-mail address and an individual ID. Links contained in the newsletter also contain this ID. The data acquired in this fashion is used to create a user profile, so that we can customise our newsletter for you, based on your individual interests. We detect when you read our newsletter and which links you click and use this information to determine your personal interests. We then connect this data to the actions taken by you on our website.

    You can object to this tracking at any time by clicking the separate link provided in each e-mail. The information is saved as long as you are subscribed to our newsletter. After unsubscribing, we save the data on a purely statistical and anonymous basis. Moreover, this tracking method is impossible, if you have deactivated images by default in your e-mail program. However, if you do so, our newsletter is not displayed in full and you may not be able to use all functions. If you display images manually, the above-described tracking method is activated.

7. Use of Google Analytics

  1. This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service of Google Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics uses "cookies", i.e. text files saved on your computer permitting analysis of your use of our website. The information on your use of this website generated by the cookie is generally transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. If IP anonymisation is activated on this website, your IP address will, however, first be abbreviated by Google within the European Union member states and other states party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. The full IP address is only transmitted to a Google server in the USA and abbreviated there in exceptional cases. On behalf of the provider of this website, Google uses this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activities and to provide the website provider with further services connected to website use and internet use.
  2. The IP addresses transmitted in connection with Google Analytics will not be associated with other data stored by Google.
  3. You can prevent storage of cookies by making the appropriate settings in your browser software; we would, however, like to point out that, if you do so, you may not be able to use all functions of this website to their full extent.

  4. This website uses Google Analytics with the extension "_anonymizeIp()“. This means IP addresses are abbreviated before being processed further, preventing association with a person. If the data collected could be associated with your person, this is therefore immediately prevented and the data related to your person is immediately deleted.
  5. We use Google Analytics in order to be able to analyse and regularly improve use of our website. We can use the statistics gathered to improve our offer and make it more interesting for you as a user. For those exceptional cases, in which personal data is transmitted to the USA, Google has subjected itself to the EU-US Privacy Shield  https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework.

10. Use of Google Adwords Conversion

  1. We use the Google Adwords service in order to use advertising material ("Google Adwords") to call attention to our appealing offers on external websites. Based on the ad campaigns' data, we can determine the level of success of individual promotional measures. We do this to pursue the interest of showing you advertisements of interest for you, of making our website more interesting for you and of achieving a fair calculation of advertising costs.
  2. This advertising material is provided by Google through so-called "Ad Servers". For this purpose, we use Ad Server cookies, which measure specific parameters to determine success, such as how often ads are displayed or how often users click on them. If you reach our website through a Google ad, Google Adwords saves a cookie on your PC. These cookies generally become invalid after 30 days and are not intended for identifying you personally. In general, the unique cookie ID, number of ad impressions per placement (frequency), last impression (relevant for post view conversions) and opt-out information (identifying that the user no longer wishes to be addressed) are saved together with this cookie as analysis values.
  3. These cookies allow Google to recognise your web browser. If a user visits certain pages of an Adwords customer's website and the cookie saved on the user's computer has not expired yet, Google and the customer can detect that the user has clicked an ad and was forwarded to the site. Each Adwords customer is assigned a different cookie. Cookies can therefore not be tracked through websites of Adwords customers. We do not collect and process personal data through the above-mentioned promotional measures. We merely receive statistical evaluations provided by Google. Based on these evaluations, we can detect which of the promotional measures used are particularly effective. We do not receive further data through use of these promotional measures. In particular, we cannot identify the users based on this information.
  4. Due to the marketing tools in use, your browser automatically establishes a direct connection with the Google server. We have no influence on the extend and further use of the data collected by Google through use of this tool, and therefore wish to inform you based on our own knowledge: Through integration of AdWords Conversion, Google receives the information that you have accessed the respective part of our web presence or clicked on one of our ads. If you are registered with a Google service, Google can associate the visit with your account. Even if you are not registered with Google or have not logged in, the provider may find out and save your IP address.
  5. You have different options for preventing participation in this tracking procedure a) by making the corresponding settings in your browser software, in particular rejecting third-party cookies will ensure that you do not receive third-party ads; b) by deactivating the cookies for conversion tracking by changing the settings of your browser so that cookies from the domain "www.googleadservices.com" are blocked, https://www.google.com/settings/ads, although these settings are deleted, when you delete your cookies c) by deactivating the interest-based ads of the provider, which are part of the self-regulation campaign "About Ads", using the link https://www.aboutads.info/choices, although this setting is deleted, when you delete your cookies; d) through permanent deactivation in your browsers Firefox, Internet Explorer or Google Chrome using the link https://www.google.com/settings/ads/plugin. We would, however, like to notify you that you may not be able to use all functions of this service, if you do so.
  6. The legal foundation for this processing of your data is Art. 6 section 1 sentence 1 (f) GDPR. Further information on data privacy at Google can be found at these links: http://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy and https://services.google.com/sitestats/en.html. Alternatively, you can visit the website of the Network Advertising Initiative (NAI) at http://www.networkadvertising.org Google has subjected itself to the EU-US Privacy Shield,​​​​​​​ https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework.

11. Remarketing

In addition to Adwords Conversion, we use the Google Remarketing service. This is a process through which we wish to address you again. This application allows us to show our ads to you during your subsequent internet use after you have visited our website. For this purpose, cookies are saved in your browser, through which your user behaviour when visiting various websites is recorded and evaluated by Google. This allows Google to determine that you have previously visited our website. Based on statements by Google, the data collected for Remarketing is not associated with any personal data which may be stored by Google. In particular, Google states that pseudonymisation is used for Remarketing.

12. Use of Google Fonts

We use Google Fonts on our website. This allows us to integrate certain fonts into our website. These fonts are provided by Google through servers in the USA. When accessing our website, your web browser establishes a direct connection to these servers. During this process, the visitor's IP address, among other things, is transmitted to Google and stored there. Google participates in the EU-US Privacy Shield: https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework

Further information about Google: Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountainview, California 94043, USA. Further information on data privacy at Google: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/

13. Links to third-party websites

We link to the websites of other providers not associated with us (third parties), e.g. to our profiles on social networks such as LinkedIn, Xing, Twitter, YouTube, Instagram and Facebook. We would like to inform you that we have no influence on the data processed by these providers, when you click these links. As data processing by third parties is not under our control, we cannot assume any liability for it. For further information on data processing by these third parties, please refer to the data privacy information published by the respective provider.

14. Safety measures

  1. As required by Art. 32 GDPR, we take suitable technical and organisational measures to ensure a level of protection appropriate to the risk, taking into account the state of the art, the cost of implementation and the nature, scope, context and purposes of processing as well as the risks of varying likelihood and severity for rights and freedoms of natural persons.  
  2. These measures include, in particular, the safeguarding of reliability, integrity and availability of data by controlling physical access to the data as well as access associated with the data, input, disclosure, safeguarding of availability and separation. Moreover, we have established methods for ensuring that affected parties can exercise their rights, for ensuring data deletion and appropriate reactions to risks to the data. Moreover, we take the protection of personal data into account even when developing or selecting hardware, software and methods, based on the principle of data protection by design and by default settings conducive to data protection (Art. 25 GDPR). 
  3. To ensure security and safeguard the transfer of confidential data, e.g. enquiries, transmitted by you to us in our role as the provider of the websites, these websites use SSL encryption. An encrypted connection is indicated by the address bar of your browser changing from "http://“ to "https://" and a padlock symbol in your browser bar. When this SSL encryption is active, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
  4. We would, however, like to point out that online data transmission (e.g. when communicating by e-mail) is subject to security vulnerabilities. Perfect protection of data from access by third parties is not possible.

15. Cooperation with processors and third parties

  1. If we disclose, transmit or otherwise grant access to data to other persons and companies (order processors or third parties) in the context of our processing of this data, this is only done on the basis of legal permissibility (e.g. when transmission of data to third parties, such as financial service providers, is required according to Art. 6 section 1 (b) GDPR for contract performance), on the basis of your consent, based on a legal obligation or our legitimate interest, e.g. when commissioning service providers, web hosts, etc. 
  2. If we commission third parties to process our data based on a so-called processing contract, this will be based on Art. 28 GDPR.

16. Transfer to third countries

If we process data in a third country, i.e. outside of the European Union (EU) or the European Economic Area (EEA) or if this is done in the context of using third-party services or disclosure or transfer of data to third parties, this shall only be done, if it is required for performing our (pre-)contractual obligations, if you have given your consent, or if it is based on a legal obligation or on our legitimate interest. Subject to legal or contractual permissions, we only process data or have data processed in third countries, if the special prerequisites of Art. 44 ff. GDPR exist. I.e. processing is, e.g. based on special safeguards, such as the official establishment of a data protection level equivalent to that of the EU (e.g. the "Privacy Shield" for the USA) or adherence to officially recognised special contractual obligations ("standard contractual clauses").

17. Your rights

  1. You have the following rights with regard to personal data related to your person:

    - Right of access (Art. 15 GDPR),
    - Right to rectification or erasure (Art. 16 and Art. 17 GDPR),
    - Right to restriction of processing (Art. 18 GDPR),
    - Right to notification (Art. 19 GDPR),
    - Right to data portability (Art. 20 GDPR),

  2. Moreover, you have the right to object to processing of personal data related to your person at any time for reasons based on your specific situation, if this processing is based on Art. 6 section 1 (e) GDPR (data processing for public interest) or Art. 6 section 1 (f) GDPR (data processing based on weighing of interests); this also applies to profiling based on these provisions (Art. 21 GDPR). If you object, your personal data will only be processed further, if we can prove that there are compelling, legitimate reasons overriding your interests, rights and freedoms or if processing is for the purpose of asserting, exercising or defending legal claims.
  3. If you have given us permission to process your personal data, you can revoke it at any time. The legitimacy of processing of your personal data up to the point at which you revoked your consent remains unaffected. Further processing of this data based on a different legal foundation, for instance to meet legal obligations, also remains unaffected. 
  4. You have the right to file a complaint with a data privacy supervisory authority about our processing of your personal data.
