By using our site offer, you accept the following Data Protection Statement with the described approach to the services and functions referred to here as well as our additional information on the limitation of unwanted transmission of information as read, understood and provided.

By continuing to use our website offer, you grant your permission and consent to the collection of data according to the descriptions and instructions below, to the extent your browser settings allow or prevent this. We refer below to possible data collection by third-party providers whose services we use via so-called plug-ins, and also link to their data protection notices, but we have no further influence on possible data collection by their services.

1. General Data Protection and Security Information

We take the matter of data protection seriously and hereby affirm that we only receive accessible data from the website anonymously without personally identifying the user of the site. Based on the transmitted IP address, personalised identification by us is not possible, and this is NEVER our intent.
It is not the intent and purpose of this website to collect and analyse data. NO personalised user profiles are created by us. Targeted data storage and analysis does not take place on our servers.

The data viewed by us is purely for informative purposes. The data protection for this website is based on and subject to German and European law (BDSG/TMG/EU-DSGVO)

We handle your personal data responsibly and therefore inform you at this point that your personal data is collected, processed, used and forwarded in compliance with the applicable national and European data protection regulations. We and the contractual partners who are commissioned to implement/execute orders maintain the confidentiality of the data and will not sell, rent them or make them available to third parties in any other way.

Personal data will only be collected, stored in customer databases or transmitted to third parties, to the extent necessary for the fulfilment of contracts or memberships concluded with the user
or for the handling of a request by the user – and subject to the following paragraphs, if you give your express consent thereto. For this purpose, you have the opportunity to provide your explicit declaration of consent where personal data is retrieved.

For the processing and administration as well as the use of our offer, it is necessary that some of your (user) data, such as name, e-mail address, address, etc., are collected and stored by the website via corresponding forms. This data is kept strictly confidential by us, cannot be viewed by third parties and is only used internally.

1.1 Data Transfer to Third Parties

Personal data will be treated confidentially by us and will not be disclosed to third parties without your consent, unless this i

  • necessary for carrying out service offered,
  • also legally expressly allowed without your consent, or
  • required on the basis of a legal or official request.

As part of the execution of an order, we may pass on data within the company structure to subcontractors necessary to fulfil the order. However, the data will be deleted immediately after successful order execution and in accordance with the contract concluded with the companies for order data processing.

Contact

Under the heading „Contact“ you may request information about our products and services electronically, by telephone or by postal mail. For this purpose, the personal data (your first and last name and your e-mail address) provided for the forwarding of these materials requested by you will be collected, processed and used to complete the request. Other information such as street, city, state, county, postal code or telephone number are voluntary and helps us make better contact with you. Additional storage and processing of your personal data takes place only if you have expressly consented to this. If you have not given your consent and if there is no further cooperation that requires further contact, this data shall be deleted completely – in accordance with statutory obligations and regulations.

1.2 Right to Information/Blocking/Deletion

As a user, you may end the usage of the Internet site at any time.

You may request at any time that your personal data be deleted or blocked, or that any existing account be deleted and/or deactivated.
You also have the right at any time to free information about your stored personal data, their origin and recipients, and the purpose of the data processing.

We are quite willing to uphold this right, to the extent we are able to understand and reconstruct any request without a great deal of expense. You may contact us at any time if you have further questions on the topic of personal data.

NOTE: we are available at datenschutz@hwg-media.de if you have any further data protection questions.

1.3 Information For User Data Protection Measures

This is what you can do beforehand: If you want to prevent general data tracking, you can use browser tools/plug-ins, such as AnonymoX or what is available through the Tor network, whose use we expressly recommend. Furthermore, we recommend that you adjust the security settings of your browser, for example by excluding the setting of cookies in general, and additionally arranging for the deletion of cookies in the browser settings when you quit the browser program or, if your browser allows, by browsing to visit our website in „private or incognito or VPN“ mode (this is browser dependent). For further information, please refer to the online help in the browser or the websites of the browser manufacturer.

2. SSL Encryption

This site uses SSL encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of sensitive contents, such as the requests you send to us as the website operator. If SSL encryption is enabled, the data you submit to us cannot be read by third parties.

3. Server Logfiles

For security reasons, in particular, the server service provider stores information in so-called server logfiles, which your browser automatically transmits. A user-based suppression of the transmission of this referrer information is not possible in the current browsers. What is transmitted is:

  • browser type and browser version
  • operating system used
  • referrer URL (URL, which led to the server)
  • hostname of the accessing computer (if transmitted)
  • time of the server request

This is not personal data. It is therefore not possible for us to assign the collected data to a specific natural person.

4. Cookies

To improve the functionality of our website and to make our website easier for you to use, we use so-called „cookies“. When you visit our site, data is stored on YOUR computer with their help.

You can prevent the storage of cookies by setting your browser software accordingly (see 1.3); however, please be aware that if you do this you may not be able to have complete use of all of the functions of this website.

Cookies are small text files that facilitate the use of our online services by recognising a user as such. The cookies we use do not collect and process any specific personal information, so your privacy is protected. They do not collect your e-mail address or any other features (including information about your IP address or addresses that could identify you. In the event that we collect, process or use your personal information about you in any other way, either on the basis of your explicit consent or a statutory permission, this personal data will not be aggregated with the non-personal data collected via cookies.

You have the option to prevent the storage of cookies on your computer entirely by means of corresponding settings in your browser or, for example to delete the „cookies“ only after closing the browser each time on your computer. How you block individual cookies depends on the browser you are using. Go to the Help function or the corresponding menu of your browser for more information.

However, a general prevention of „cookies“ could restrict the range of functions of our offers and those of other providers.

5. Google Services and Programmes

5.1 Website Analysis with Google Analytics

This site uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. („Google“). Google Analytics uses so-called „cookies“, text files that are stored on your computer and that allow analysis of your use of the website.

By using this website, you agree to the processing of data about you by Google in the manner described and for the stated purpose. You can prevent the collection by Google Analytics for this website by clicking on the link below. An opt-out cookie will be set that will prevent future collection of your data when visiting ONLY THIS website: Disable Google Analytics on this website

In addition, you can prevent the collection of the data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) to Google and the processing of this data by Google by using the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de to download and install the available browser plug-in.

You can find more detailed information about Terms of Use and Data Protection at: http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/en.html or at: https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/. Please also consider Google’s data protection policy at: https://www.google.com/intl/en/privacypolicy.html#information.

The information generated by a cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

By activating the IP anonymisation „anonymizeIP“ on this website, your IP address will be truncated by Google within the member states of the European Union or in other states party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.

In this way, we want to guarantee the anonymised collection of IP addresses (so-called IP masking), and eliminate any direct reference to persons. Anyway, this is not the business model of this website. With „anonymizeIP“ Google servers are instructed to delete the last three digits of the transmitted IP. 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 website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activities and to provide other services related to website usage and Internet usage to the website operator. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be aggregated with other Google data.

We use Google Analytics to analyse data from AdWords and the Double-Click cookie for statistical purposes. If you do not want this, you can disable it through the Ads Preferences Manager (http://www.google.com/settings/ads/onweb/?hl=en).

5.2 Google Maps

This site uses Google Maps to display a site layout. Google Maps is operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. By using this website, you agree to the collection, processing and use by Google, one of its agents, or third party providers of the data collected and entered by you. The terms of service for Google Maps can be found in the Google Maps Terms of Service. For additional details, see the Data Protection Center at google.com: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en#information.

5.3 Google Web Fonts

This website uses so-called Web Fonts, provided by Google, for the uniform representation of fonts. When a website is visited, your browser loads the required web fonts into your browser cache to display texts and fonts correctly. If your browser does not support web fonts, a default font will be used by your computer.

More information about Google Web Fonts can be found at: https://developers.google.com/fonts/faq and in Google’s Data Protection Statement: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/.

6. General data protection explanation about social media plug-ins such as Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Instagram, Picasa, YouTube, Google+ (using Facebook here as an example)

If you do not want Facebook or any other social media platform to assign your visit to our websites to your user account, please log out of your social media account before visiting our websites. You may simply log in to the website using your social media account to use additional benefits of the website. However, we particularly recommend the option of a separate registration with individual username and password for this website.

Our sites may have so-called social media plug-ins (such as Facebook’s social network, 1601 South California Ave., Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA) visibly integrated, or you may register with your social media account to use additional benefits of the website. We recommend registering with an individual username and password for this website.

The plug-ins can be recognized by the logos, or especially on Facebook, the Like button („Like“) on our website. If you click on the Facebook „Like“ button while you are logged in to your Facebook account, you can link the contents of our websites to your Facebook profile.

As a result, Facebook can assign the visit to our websites to your user account. If you stay logged in with your account on Facebook and visit our website and/or other websites, a direct connection may be established between your browser and the Facebook server via the plug-in. Facebook receives the information that you have visited our website with your IP address.

We point out that, as the provider of the websites, we are not aware of the content of the data transmitted and their use by Facebook. Further information about this topic may be found in the Facebook Data Protection Statement (https://www.facebook.com/policy.php).
