General remarks and mandatory information
The operators of these sites take the protection of your personal data very seriously. Your personal data is handled confidentially and in accordance with statutory data protection regulations and this privacy notice.
When you use this website, a range of different personal information is collected. Personal data is information with which you can be personally identified. This privacy notice clarifies what data we collect and what we use it for. It also explains how and why this is done.
Please note that there may be security risks when transmitting data via the internet (e.g. when communicating by email). It is not possible to guarantee completely that data is protected from third-party access.
Information about the responsible authority
The authority responsible for the processing of data on this website is:
Gröschel Branding GmbH
The responsible authority is the natural or legal person who individually or with others decides on the purposes and means of processing personal information (e.g. names, email addresses etc.).
Retraction of your consent for processing of your data
Many data processing activities can only be performed with your express consent. You can revoke consent you have already given at any time with future effect. Informal notification of this by email is sufficient in this case. The lawfulness of the data processing that has taken place until the retraction remains unaffected by the retraction.
Right of appeal to the responsible supervisory body
If data protection legislation is infringed, the person concerned has a right to appeal to the responsible supervisory body. The responsible supervisory body on matters of data protection legislation is the state Data Protection Commission of the federal state in which our company has its registered office. https://www.datenschutz-berlin.de/beschwerde.html
Right to data portability
You have the right to have data that we are automatically processing on the basis of your consent or in fulfilment of a contract handed over to you or to a third party in an established, machine-readable format. If you request the direct transfer of data to another responsible person, this will only be done if it is technically possible.
This site uses SSL encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or queries, that you send to us as the website operator. An encrypted link can be recognised by the address line in the browser changing from “http://” to “https://” and by the lock symbol in your browser line.
When SSL encryption is activated, the data you transfer to us cannot be read by third parties.
Disclosure, blocking, deletion
Under current legislation, you have the right at all times to obtain information free of charge about your stored personal data, its origin and recipient, the purpose of the data processing and, if applicable, a right to have this data corrected, blocked or deleted. You may contact us at any time about this and any other questions on the subject of personal data at the address given in the legal information.
The website contains what are called “external links” to other websites. The website provider has no influence on their content and therefore cannot accept liability for their content.
The relevant provider of the linked website is responsible for the content and accuracy of the information provided. At the time the link was made, no legal violations were identified. When made aware of such an infringement, the link is immediately removed.
Data collection on our website
The provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in what are known as server log files automatically sent to us by your browser. This information includes:
▪ browser type and browser version
▪ operating system used
▪ referrer URL
▪ host name of the accessing computer
▪ time of the server request
▪ IP address (made anonymous after 7 days).
This data is not combined with other data sources.
The basis on which data is processed is Art. 6 (1b) of the GDPR, which allows the processing of data for the performance of a contract or in order to take steps prior to entering into a contract.
Websites sometimes use what are known as cookies. Cookies do not damage your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies make our offer more user friendly, effective and secure. They are small text files that are placed on your computer and stored in your browser.
Most of the cookies we use are what are called “session cookies” and are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Other cookies continue to be stored on your terminal until you delete them. These cookies allow us to recognise your browser the next time you visit.
You can set your browser so that you are informed about cookies being placed and only allow cookies in individual cases, exclude the acceptance of cookies in certain cases or generally, and activate the automatic deletion of cookies whenever you close your browser. Deactivating cookies may restrict the functionality of this website.
Cookies required for the execution of electronic communication processes or the preparation of certain functions you wish to use (e.g. shopping basket function) are stored in accordance with Art. 6 (1f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in storing cookies for the optimised delivery of its services without technical errors.
“Event notification” contact form
When you give us information about events using a contact form, we store your information on the form including the contact information you give on it for the purposes of processing your enquiry and in the event of subsequent questions. We do not pass on this data without your consent.
Data provided on the contact form is therefore only processed on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 (1a) GDPR). You may revoke this consent in future at any time. Informal notification of this by email is sufficient in this case. The lawfulness of the data processing that has taken place until the retraction remains unaffected by the retraction.
The data submitted on the contact form remains with us until you request its deletion, revoke your consent to its storage or the purpose of storing the data no longer applies (e.g. after your query has been processed). Mandatory statutory provisions – in particular retention periods – remain unaffected by this.
