We at WAGENER & CO. GmbH are delighted that you are interested in our company and services. We take the issue of protecting your personal data that is collected, processed, and used during your visit to our website very seriously.
Although we carefully check the content presented on and linked to this website, we assume no liability for external links to third-party Internet sites and other external information because we exert no influence on the design and content of the information presented there. Your data is collected, processed, and used within the scope of current legal stipulations (see, for example, the website of the state representative for data protection of the state of Schleswig-Holstein at www.datenschutz.de (in German)).
The following text gives you an overview of the information collected during your visit to our homepage and how this data is used.
Data Protection Statement
The responsible party as per the data protection acts is:
Recording General Information
When you access our website, information of a general nature is automatically recorded. This information (server logfiles) indicates, for example, the type of web browser and operating system used, as well as the domain name of your Internet service provider and similar information. This is only information that does not allow any conclusions to be made about your person. This information is necessary from a technical point of view so the content you request from the website can be properly displayed, and it is absolutely necessary when you use the Internet. We statistically evaluate anonymous information to improve our website and the technology behind it. This serves to protect the company's overriding legitimate interest (in the scope of weighing of interests) in correctly presenting this website.
Hosting Services from Third Parties
In the scope of the processing activity that we have contracted, a third party provides the services required for hosting and presenting this website. All data collected as described below during usage of this website is processed on this party's servers. Processing on other servers takes place only in the scope elaborated here.
This service provider is located in a country in the European Union or the European Economic Area.
Like many other websites, our website uses what are known as cookies. Cookies are small text files that a website server transfers to your hard drive. As a result of this process, we automatically receive certain data, such as the IP address, browser used, and operating system through your computer and your connection to the Internet.
Cookies cannot be used to start programs or transfer viruses to computers. The information cookies contain can be used to facilitate navigation and make it possible to correctly display this website.
The data we collect is in no way forwarded to third parties or linked to personal data without your consent.
Data Security and SSL Encryption
As mentioned above, when you access our website, automatically generated information is collected. It cannot be assigned to a specific person. Our company uses this data to continually improve and update its website, thereby making it user-friendlier.
If you visit our homepage, information we request may be stored in the form of small text files that are stored on your computer and saved in your browser. These files are known as “Cookies”.
Most of the cookies we use are referred to as “session cookies”. They are automatically deleted after the end of your visit to our website.
If you do not consent to this procedure, you can configure the settings in your Internet browser so that it deletes cookies from the hard drive of your computer, blocks all cookies, or asks you at the appropriate time whether a cookie should be saved or not.
If you contact us by e-mail or by using the contact form, the information you enter will be saved so your inquiry can be processed and any subsequent questions can be handled.
Deletion or Blocking of Data
Our company adheres to the principles of data reduction and data economy. That means we store your personal data only for the duration necessary to achieve the purposes mentioned here or for the various periods stipulated by legislators. After the cessation of the purpose in question or after these periods have lapsed, the relevant data is routinely blocked or deleted as per the legal regulations.
Use of script libraries (Google web fonts)
In order to present our content correctly and graphically appealing across browsers, we use script and font libraries, such as Google web fonts(https://www.google.com/webfonts/) on this website. Google web fonts are transferred to the cache of your browser to prevent multiple loading. If the browser does not support Google web fonts or prohibits access to them, the content will be displayed in a standard font.
The retrieval of script or font libraries automatically triggers a connection to the operator of the library. It is theoretically possible – but currently also unclear whether, and if so, for what purposes – for operators of such libraries to collect data.
Usage of Google Maps
You can find detailed instructions for managing your own data as concerns Google’s products here.
Embedded YouTube Videos
We embed YouTube videos on some of our websites. YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. operates the relevant plugins. If you visit a site containing the YouTube plugin, a connection to YouTube’s servers is created. During this process, YouTube will be informed of the sites you visit. If you are logged into your YouTube account, YouTube can ascribe your surfing behaviour to you. You can prevent YouTube from doing this by logging out of your YouTube account before visiting these sites.
If you have deactivated the saving of cookies for the Google Ad programme, you will not have to reckon with these kinds of cookies when you watch YouTube videos. However, YouTube stores non-personal usage information in other cookies. If you would like to prevent this from happening, you must block the storage of cookies in your browser.
You can find additional information on data protection concerning “YouTube” in the provider’s data protection statement at: https://policies.google.com/privacy
Your Rights to Information, Correction, Blocking, Deletion, and Objection
You have the right to receive information at all times about your personal data our company has saved. You also have the right to have your personal data corrected, blocked, and deleted (aside from the mandatory data storage for business purposes). Please contact the party responsible for data privacy for this purpose. You will find their contact information at the very bottom of this text.
So that a data block can be taken into consideration at all times, this data must be kept in a blocking file for monitoring purposes. You can also demand that your data be deleted as long as no legal storage obligation exists. If such an obligation exists, we shall block your data upon request.
You can make changes or withdraw your consent by informing us as appropriate with effect for the future.
Changes to our Data Protection Regulations
We reserve the right to occasionally make changes to this data protection statement so that it fulfils current legal requirements at all times and to make changes to our services in the data protection statement, for example, should we introduce new services. In this case, the new data protection statement would apply for your next visit.
Objection to Junk Mail
We hereby object to the usage of the contact data published within the scope of the obligation to provide a site notice for sending advertisements and informational material which we have not expressly requested. The site operators expressly reserve the right to take legal measures should undesired advertising material be sent, such as through spam e-mails.
