Basic Principles

We heed the specifications of the German Federal Data Protection Act (Bundesdatenschutzgesetz, BDSG) and the Telemedia Act (Telemediengesetz, TMG), and all other provisions under data protection legislation relevant for us. All our employees are bound moreover to maintain secrecy and to respect professional rules and regulations on confidentiality and privacy.

Data storage and processing on accessing our website

When our website is accessed, the data that your browser sends to the server on which the content is hosted is automatically stored in log files and may be processed. Specifically, this is:

  • date and time of request,
  • the preferred access method/function for the computer making the request,
  • the input values transferred by the computer making the request (e.g. file name),
  • the operating system used by the user,
  • the browser type used by the user, including version number,
  • the URL from which the file was requested/the desired function was triggered.

This data is gathered exclusively in an anonymised format, and the data gathered does not permit any association to actual persons. In particular, the IP addresses of the computers making the requests are not stored. This data is not brought together with other data sources which might potentially allow for association to persons. The data is only evaluated for statistical purposes.

In addition, the following applies:

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses something known as “cookies”, which are text files stored on your computer and permitting analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website (including your IP address) is transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. Google will use this information to analyse your use of the website, in order to assemble reports about website activities for the website operator and to provide additional services associated with use of the website and Internet usage. Google may also transfer this information to third parties, if applicable, insofar as this is specified in law or insofar as third parties process this data under instruction from Google. In no instance will Google associate your IP address with other Google data. You can prevent cookies from being installed on your computer by using a corresponding setting in your browser software; however, we point out that in this case you may possibly not be able to fully use all this website’s functions. In addition, you can prevent the data generated by the cookie and relating to your use of the website (including your IP address) from being recorded and processed by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available from the following link: (http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de). In the interests of far-reaching data protection, however, Google Analytics has already been supplemented on this website with the function “gat._anonymizeIp();”. This ensures that IP addresses are only recorded in an anonymised format.

Data storage and processing on making contact and commissioning work

We store and use data which you have voluntarily communicated on making contact with us (e.g. name and e-mail address), insofar as this is necessary for further correspondence with you. Information which you send to us in order for us to prepare and submit a specific offer of services is used solely for preparing and submitting the offer.

If you commission us with a specific service, we store your contact data and other order-related data for the purposes of executing and billing the respective order.

Forwarding to third parties, processing in third countries

Data is forwarded to third parties insofar as this is absolutely necessary for provision of the agreed services, or in order to enforce claims, or if there is a legal obligation to do so.

In the case of trademark registrations, we will submit all the data required for the registration to the respective competent body. Please note that it is possible that the name of an applicant or trademark owner and in some cases their full contact details may be stored in registers at the trademark registries that are open for viewing and inspection by the public, together with information about the respective mark, and that third parties may be able to retrieve this information.

Processing of personalised user data in countries which do not fall under the scope of application of the EU Data Protection Directive (Directive 95/46/EC) occurs only if this is necessary for the provision of an agreed service (e.g. for a trademark registration in the USA, or when coordinating trademark registrations with local representatives in other countries). No data transfer to third countries takes place other than in relation to the order.

Information, correction, deletion, revocation

On request, sent in writing or in text form, we will at any time provide you free of charge with information regarding your personal data that is stored with us. No reasons for such request have to be stated. Any consent that you may have given for the collection and use of your personal data may be revoked at any time with future effect.

In addition, you can arrange for inaccurate data to be corrected and for any data stored that relates to your person to be blocked and deleted. However, data is not deleted if it is still absolutely necessary and if we are authorised by law to process or use this data even without your consent.
