Data collection via our web site

Who is responsible for gathering data from our web site?

Data processing is carried out by the web site operator. Contact information can be found on the imprint page.

How is data collected?

One way we collect data is by processing any data the user has provided – from our online contact sheet, for example.
Other data is collected automatically by our IT system when visiting the web site. This would be technical data (such as Internet browsing software, operating system or time of page request). This data is collected automatically as soon as you click on our web site.

How do we use the data?

Technical data is collected to ensure flawless provision of the web site on the one hand, and user behavior analysis on the other.

What are your rights regarding the data you provide?

You have the explicit right to obtain information about the origin, recipient and purpose of your stored personal data at any time.

For this purpose and for further questions about data protection, you can contact us at any time at the address given on the imprint page. Furthermore, you have a right of appeal to the supervisory authority.

Analysis and third-party tools

When you visit our web site, your surfing behavior is statistically evaluated. This happens mainly via “cookies” and using so-called analysis programs. The analysis of your surfing behavior is usually anonymous; surfing behavior cannot be traced back to you. You can challenge this analysis or prevent it by not using certain tools. Detailed information about how you may register your objection to this analysis can be found in the privacy policy below.

2. General information

Data protection

The operators of these pages take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data confidentially in accordance with statutory data protection regulations and this privacy policy.

If you use this web site, a variety of personal data points will be collected. Personal information is information that personally identifies you. This Privacy Policy explains what information we collect and what we use it for. It also explains how and for what purpose this happens.

Please note that data transmission over the Internet (for example, when communicating via email) may have security vulnerabilities. Complete data protection from access by third parties is not possible.

Responsible party

The responsible party for processing data gathered by and for content on this web site, in accordance with § 5 TMG (telecommunications law):

Ralph Seibold
Franzenhauserweg 21
89081 Ulm/Jungingen
Tel: 0731 / 96746-0
E: info@schapfenmuehle.de

The natural or legal entity named herein is individually or collectively responsible for making decisions regarding purpose and method used to process personal information (e.g. name, email adresses, etc.).

Revoking your consent to having your data processed

Many data processing operations are only activated with your express consent. You can revoke an existing consent at any time. An informal message by email to us is sufficient. The legality of any data processing carried out prior to the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

Right to data portability

You have the right to have data that we process on the basis of your consent or in fulfillment of a contract sent to yourself or to a third party in a standard, machine-readable format. If you require the direct transfer of data to a third party, this will only be done to the extent it is technically feasible.

SSL or TLS encryption

This site uses 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 a site operator. An encrypted connection can be spotted by observing the address line of the browser, which changes from “http: //” to “https: //” and places a lock symbol in your browser line.

If SSL or TLS encryption is enabled, the data you submit to us cannot be read by third parties.

Cookies

Internet pages may use so-called “cookies”. Cookies do not harm your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies serve to create a more user-friendly, effective and secure experience. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer by your browser.

Most of the cookies we use are so-called “session cookies”. They are automatically deleted after your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your device unless you delete them. These cookies allow us to recognize your browser the next time you visit.

You can set your browser so that you are informed about cookie settings, acceptance of cookies for certain cases or generally exclude and enable the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. Disabling cookies may limit the functionality of this web site.

Cookies required to carry out the electronic communication process or to provide certain functions you may wish to use (e.g. shopping cart function) are processed and saved in accordance with art. 6, para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the storage of cookies to limit technical errors and optimize provision of its services. Insofar as other cookies (such as cookies for analyzing your surfing behavior) are stored, they will be treated separately in this privacy policy.

Server log files

The provider of the pages automatically collects and stores the following information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us:

  • Browser type and version
  • User´s operating system
  • Referrer URL
  • Host name of the computer accessing our site
  • Time stamp
  • IP adress

This data is at no time merged with other data sources.

The basis for data processing is art. 6, para. 1 lit. f DSGVO, which regulates the processing of data to fulfill a contract or establish pre-contractual measures.

Contact sheet

If you send an inquiry via the contact form, any details you provide will be stored in order to process the request and in the event of follow-up questions. We will not share this information without your explicit consent.

The processing of data entered into the contact form is therefore exclusively based on your consent (art. 6 (1) lit. DSGVO). You can revoke this consent at any time – an informal message by e-mail to us is sufficient. The legality of the data processing operations carried prior to the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

The information you provide in the contact form will remain stored on our servers until you ask us to delete it, revoke your consent to storage or if the purpose for data storage (e.g. after your request has been processed) is no longer a factor. Mandatory statutory provisions – especially retention periods – remain unaffected.

4. Analytical tools and advertising

Google Analytics

This website uses functions of the web analytics service Google Analytics. The provider of this service is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”. These are text files, stored on your computer, which allow analysis of your use of the web site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this web site is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

The retention period of data stored on Google Analytics is 50 months.

IP anonymisation

We have activated the function IP anonymization on this web site.

Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the US and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this web site, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the web site, to compile reports on web site activity and to provide other services related to web site activity and internet usage to the web site operator. The IP address provided by your browser to Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.

This web site uses the demographics feature of Google Analytics. As a result, reports can be produced that contain statements on the age, gender and interests of site visitors. This data comes from interest-based advertising from Google and third-party visitor data. This data can not be assigned to a specific person. You can disable this feature at any time through the ad settings in your Google Account, or generally prohibit the collection of your data by Google Analytics as outlined in the section “Challenging the collection of data”.
