Storage of access data
Every time you access our website, the access data referring to this procedure is stored in a log file on the server of our provider. This data record comprises your IP address, date and time of the request, the name of the requested file, the file name from which the file was requested, the volume of data transmitted and the access status, a description of the web browser and operating system used and the name of your internet service provider. This data is collected for technical reasons. Evaluations involve the use of non-personal data and are carried out solely for statistical reasons.
Further personal data is only recorded, used and forwarded where permitted by law or when you have consented to the collection of the data.
Establishment of contact
Should you contact us, e.g. via contact form or email, the information you provide is stored for the purpose of processing your query and in the event of follow-up questions arising.
In the absence of explicit consent, the personal data of a competition participant is collected, processed and used solely for the design, implementation and/or processing of the competition and is deleted once the competition is over. It is not passed on to third parties. More information can be found in the terms of participation of the respective competition.
If you subscribe to our newsletter, we will use your email address to send the newsletter to you. You can unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time. Your email address is not used for any other purpose.
When you open the newsletter or click on a link inside, a corresponding log entry will be made on our web server (date, time, mail address). This is used for internal statistical purposes. This data is not used to compile personal use profiles.
When you leave comments in blogs or posts, your IP addresses are stored. This is done to our own protection in case someone should make comments or posts with unlawful content (e.g. offensive statements, racist remarks etc.). In such cases, we could be held responsible for the comment or contribution and are therefore interested in the identity of the author.
Inclusion of third-party services and content
This website may sometimes contain third-party content, e.g. YouTube videos, mapping from Google Maps, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites. This always requires the providers of such content (hereinafter 'providers') to obtain knowledge of your IP address. Without your IP address, they would not be able to send the content to your browser. The IP address is therefore essential for presenting this content. We endeavour to only use the content of providers who utilise the IP address solely for the purpose of supplying the content. However, we have no influence over whether providers store the IP address e.g. for statistical purposes.
You can configure your browser to prevent the storage of cookies on your hard disk or to ask each time whether you agree to the placement of cookies. You can delete cookies that have already been saved at any time. Details on how to do this can be found in the instructions for your web browser.
Without cookies, use of our website is possible but may be impaired.
This website also uses Google Analytics reports for performance according to demographic characteristics (e.g. age and gender) and interests. The data on demographic characteristics and interests are collected for web access by the third-party cookie of Google subsidiary DoubleClick. We evaluate demographic characteristics anonymously and do not link them to personal data. You can deactivate the demographic-based evaluation at any time in your Google Ads Settings.
You can also prevent the data generated by the cookie about your interaction with the website (incl. your IP address) from being conveyed to Google and being processed by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available via the link http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.
You can also prevent data collection by Google Analytics on this website by clicking on the following link. Doing so will set an opt-out cookie that prevents the future acquisition of your data when you visit this website: Disable Google Analytics for this website.
By using this website, you consent to Google's processing of the data collected on you in the aforementioned manner and for the aforementioned purpose.
We draw attention to the fact that Google Analytics has been supplemented by the code 'gat._anonymizeIp();' on this website in order to ensure the anonymous recording of IP addresses (so-called IP masking).
Social plug-ins from Facebook, Google+ and Twitter using the 2-click solution
So-called social plug-ins (hereinafter 'plug-ins') from the social networks Facebook and Google+ and micro-blogging service Twitter are used on our website. These services are provided by the companies Facebook Inc., Google Inc. and Twitter Inc. (hereinafter 'providers').
Facebook is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (hereinafter 'Facebook'). An overview of Facebook plug-ins and their appearance can be found here: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/.
Google+ is operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (hereinafter 'Google'). An overview of Google plug-ins and their appearance can be found here: https://developers.google.com/+/web/.
Twitter is operated by Twitter Inc., 1355 Market St, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103 (hereinafter 'Twitter'). An overview of Twitter buttons and their appearance can be found here: https://twitter.com/about/resources/buttons.
In order to increase protection for your personal data when you visit our website, the plug-ins are embedded in the site using the so-called '2-click solution'. This embedding guarantees that no connection is made with Facebook, Google or Twitter servers when you visit a page of our website that contains such plug-ins. Your browser only makes a direct connection with the Facebook, Google or Twitter servers when you activate the plug-ins and, thus, consent to the data transfer. The content of the respective plug-in is then transmitted by the respective provider directly to your browser and embedded in the page. The embedding of the plug-ins informs the provider that you have accessed the corresponding page of our website, even if you have no profile with the provider concerned or are not logged in at the time. This information (including your IP address) is sent by your browser directly to a server of the provider concerned in the USA and is saved there.
If you are logged in on one of the social networks, providers can immediately assign your visit to our website to your Facebook or Google+ profile. If you interact with the plug-ins, for example, if you click on a ‘Like’, '+1' or 'Twitter' button, the corresponding information is transmitted directly to a provider server and saved there. The information is also published on the social network or on your Twitter account and is visible to your contacts.
For information on the scope and purpose of the data collection and the further processing and usage of the data by the providers as well your rights in this regard and setting options for the protection of your personal privacy, please refer to the data protection information of the respective provider:
If you do not want Google, Facebook or Twitter to assign data retrieved from your visit to our website to your profile, you must log out of the social network concerned before activating the plug-ins.
Should you have any queries concerning the collection, processing and use of your personal data or if you would like to inquire about, correct, block, or delete data, please contact: STAEDTLER Mars GmbH & Co. KG, Data Protection Officer, Moosaeckerstrasse 3, 90427 Nuremberg, Germany, email@example.com, telephone: +49 (0) 911 93650.
