Data Protection Information
We take data protection seriously
The protection of your privacy when we process your personal data is an important concern for us. When you visit our website, our web servers automatically store the IP of your Internet service provider, the website from which you visit us, the pages which you visit when you are on our website, as well as the date and duration of the visit. This information is essential for the technical transmission of the web pages and for secure server operation. No personalised evaluation of this data is carried out.
If you send us data via the contact form, this data is stored on our servers as part of the data back-up process. Your data will be used by us only to process your request. Your data will also be dealt with in the strictest of confidence. There is no disclosure to third parties.
Christian Karl Siebenwurst GmbH & Co. KG
Personal data is data about your person. This includes your name, address and email address. You do not have to disclose any personal data in order to be able to visit our website. In some cases, we need your name and address as well as further information in order to be able to offer you the requested service.
The same applies if we supply you with information material on request or if we answer your enquiries. In these cases, we will always point this out to you. Furthermore, we store only the data that you have sent to us either automatically or voluntarily.
If you use one of our services, we generally only collect the data that is necessary for us to be able to provide you with our service. We may ask you for further information, although this is only on a voluntary basis. Whenever we process personal data, we do so in order to be able to provide you with our service or to pursue our commercial objectives.
Automatically stored non-personal data
Server log files
The website provider automatically collects and stores information in so-called "server log files", which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:
- Date and time of the request
- Name of the requested file
- Page from which the file was requested
- Access status (file transferred, file not found, etc.)
- Web browser and operating system used
- Complete IP address of the requesting computer
- Transferred data volume
This data is not combined with other data sources. Processing is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 (f) GDPR on the basis of our legitimate interest in improving the stability and functionality of our website.
This data is temporarily stored by us for reasons of technical security, in particular in order to prevent attempts to attack our web server. It is not possible for us to draw conclusions about specific individuals on the basis of this data. After seven days at the latest, the data is made anonymous by shortening the IP address at the domain level, so that it is no longer possible to establish a reference to the individual user. The data is also processed in anonymous form for statistical purposes; it is not compared with other data stocks or passed on to third parties, even in the form of extracts. Only within the context of our server statistics, which we publish every two years in our activity report, is the number of page views made known.
In order to be able to evaluate our site statistically, we use the program AWStats. The program is a free web analysis software. It is used for evaluating log files created by web servers on the basis of visitor requests. The program does not use cookie files for the evaluation. The statistical analysis is carried out via the log files, which also contain IP addresses. As a rule, this data cannot be used to identify specific people. This information is not merged with other data sources and the data is deleted after it has been statistically analysed.
In contrast to other statistics programs, AWStats does not transfer any data to a third-party server. The program is installed on your own hosting package. For example, the transfer of data abroad is avoided because our server is located in Germany.
This website uses Google Maps to display maps and create route maps.
Google Maps is operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. By using Google Maps on this website, you agree to the collection, processing and use of the data which is collected automatically – as well as the data entered by you – by Google, any of its representatives or third-party providers.
We have taken technical and administrative security precautions to protect your personal data against loss, destruction, manipulation and unauthorised access. All of our employees and the service providers working for us are obliged to comply with the valid data protection laws.
Whenever we collect and process personal data, it is encrypted before being transmitted. This means that your data cannot be misused by third parties. Our security precautions are subject to a constant improvement process and our privacy policies are constantly being revised. Please make sure that you have the latest version.
You have a right to information, rectification, erasure or restriction of the processing of your stored data, a right of objection to the processing as well as a right to data portability and a right to complain in accordance with the requirements of data protection law.
Right to information:
You can request information from us concerning whether and to what extent we process your data.
Right to rectification:
If we process your data that is incomplete or incorrect, you can request that we rectify or complete such data at any time.
Right to erasure:
You can request that we erase your data if we process it unlawfully or if the processing interferes disproportionately with your legitimate protection interests. Please note that there may be reasons that prevent immediate erasure, e.g. in the case of legally regulated retention obligations.
Irrespective of the exercising of your right to erasure, we will erase your data immediately and completely, unless there is a contractual or legal obligation to retain it.
Right to restriction of the processing:
You may request that we restrict the processing of your data if
- you dispute the accuracy of the data, namely for a period of time that enables us to verify the accuracy of the data.
- the processing of the data is unlawful, but you refuse to have it erased and instead request a restriction on the use of the data,
- we no longer need the data for the intended purpose, but you still need this data to assert or defend legal claims, or
- you have lodged an objection to the processing of the data.
Right to data portability:
You may request us to provide you with the data you have made available to us in a structured, current and machine-readable format and to allow you to forward this data to another responsible party without our interference, provided that
- we process this data on the basis of an agreement which you have submitted and which is revocable or in order to fulfil a contract between us, and
- this processing is carried out using automated methods.
If it is technically feasible, you can ask us to transfer your data directly to another responsible party.
Right of objection:
If we process your data on the basis of a legitimate interest, you can object to this data processing at any time; this would also apply to any profiling which is based on these provisions. We will then no longer process your data unless we can prove compelling reasons worthy of protection for the processing that outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims. You can object to the processing of your data for the purposes of direct advertising at any time without stating any reasons.
Right of appeal:
If you are of the opinion that we are infringing German or European data protection law when processing your data, please contact us so that we can clarify any questions. Of course you also have the right to contact the supervisory authority which is responsible for you, i.e. the respective State Office for Data Protection Supervision.
If you wish to assert any of the above rights against us, please contact our Data Protection Officer. In cases of doubt we may request additional information to confirm your identity.
All interested parties and visitors to our website can reach us concerning questions of data protection at the following address:
Thank you for visiting our website and for your interest in us and our services. We take the protection of personal data very seriously and would like you to feel safe when you visit our website. We process personal data collected during visits to our websites in accordance with the statutory provisions, in particular the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and the German Telemedia Act (TMG).
How do we process personal data?
At some points on our website, we give you the opportunity to contact us or to make use of certain services (e.g. newsletter subscription). We use the personal data transmitted here only for the purpose for which such data was provided to us. Your data is not passed on to third parties.
What is personal data?
Personal data is the information that makes it possible to identify a person. This specifically includes your actual name, address and telephone number. Information that is not directly associated with your real identity (e.g. favourite websites or number of users of a site) is not personal data. (In this regard, see also: "Is data logged during my visit?")
Which data is queried?
If the opportunity for the input of personal or business data (email addresses, name, addresses) is given, the input of such data is done voluntarily. The use of all the services on offer is permitted - if and insofar as it is technically possible and reasonable - without specification of any personal data or under specification of anonymised data or an alias. However, by correctly entering the optional data, you enable us to provide you with personal and individual support.
Is the confidentiality of the email traffic/contact form guaranteed?
Should you wish to contact us by email or contact form, we would like to point out that the confidentiality of the information transmitted cannot be guaranteed. The content of emails can be viewed by third parties. We therefore recommend that you send us confidential information solely by post.
Is data logged during my visit?
Each time a user accesses a page from our website and each time a file is retrieved, access data about this process is stored in a log file on our server.
- IP address
- Page from which the file was requested.
- Date and time
- Browser type and browser settings
- Operating system
- The pages you visited
- Volume of data transmitted
- Access status (file transferred, file not found, etc.)
Statistics are generated from this data. Such statistics help us to further adapt our Internet presence to your needs. A personal reference can only be derived from this if you register directly on our website or access our website from a personalised page. However, the data in question, including excerpts thereof, is not transferred to third parties under any circumstances.
We use session cookies on our site. The data is not stored permanently. The use of temporary cookies gives you the benefit of not having to enter your personal data again and again when filling out various forms on our website: The cookies are automatically deleted when the browser is closed.
Most browsers are set to accept cookies automatically. However, you can deactivate the storage of cookies or set your browser so that it notifies you as soon as cookies are sent.
If you have deactivated cookies, a session ID serves to identify a person during continuous access to our website. No data is stored on your computer. The session ID is deleted after your visit has ended.
Do I have any control over the use of my data?
You do of course have the sole right to decide whether and for which purposes we may use your data. For example, you can subscribe to a newsletter. You can also unsubscribe from this at any time. In general, a link provided for this purpose is attached at the end of the newsletter. This makes it possible to unsubscribe from the newsletter with great ease. Furthermore, you alone determine whether we may use your data for purposes of consulting, advertising and market research. Again, you can of course revoke your consent at any time.
Do you forward my data to third parties?
Personal data is used by us solely for internal purposes in the course of the customer relationship. Forwarding to third parties does not take place without your consent. Surveys of personal data as well as their transmission to state institutions and authorities entitled to receive information are only carried out within the framework of the relevant laws or if we are obliged to do so by a court order. We have obligated all employees and service companies to secrecy and compliance with data protection regulations.
How can I check, correct or delete my data?
In accordance with § 34 and § 6b BDSG, users have the right to request information about the personal data stored about them. There are no fees associated with such a request. In addition, users also have the right to correct, block and delete this personal data in accordance with the statutory provisions.
With regard to all of these cases, please contact us directly.
Use of Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. "("Google"). Google Analytics uses "cookies", which are text files stored on your computer, to help the website analyse how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is generally transmitted to, and stored by Google on servers in the United States.
However, if IP anonymisation is enabled on this website, Google will truncate your IP address beforehand within member states of the European Union or other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transmitted to a Google server in the USA and truncated 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 activity, and to provide other services relating to website activity and Internet usage to the website operator.
This website uses Google Analytics with the extension "_anonymizeIp()". IP addresses are therefore only processed in truncated form in order to exclude direct personal references.
