1. Privacy policy

1.1. Information regarding the collection of personal information and provider information

Below we provide information about the collection of your personal data when you use this website. Personal data is all data relating to your person, such as your name, address, email addresses or user behaviour.

OHROPAX GmbH is the service provider in accordance with section 13 of the German telemedia act (Telemediengesetz – TMG) and the responsible body in terms of data protection law. See also our legal information.

1.2. Data security

Technical and organisational measures are in place to ensure that we and our employees, as well as external service providers, comply with data protection regulations. The technical measures are adapted in accordance with the latest technology.

1.3 Data collection in the case of access to our website

1.3.1 Data collection in the case of informational use

If you only use the website for information purposes, i.e. if you do not provide any other information, we do not collect any personal data with the exception of the following, which is stored in a log file for a maximum of 14 days:

  • IP address of the person accessing our website;
  • Name of accessed file;
  • Date and time of access;
  • Data volume transmitted;
  • Report regarding whether the access was successful;
  • Referrer address (where the user came from);
  • Browser used by user

The data listed above is only evaluated for the purposes of optimising our website.

1.3.2 Data collection in the case of use of our online shop

If you would like to order something from our online shop, you only need to enter the data required for the order once for this order. We store your data for the purposes of execution of the contract and delete it for the future as soon as there is no longer a legal obligation to store it. Mandatory data required for the processing of contracts is marked separately, while further information is provided voluntarily.

We use the data you provide to process your order. For this purpose, we pass on your address details to an authorised shipping company and, if necessary, your payment details to our processing bank. We will delete this data for the future following processing of the contract and expiry of retention requirements under tax or commercial law.

To prevent unauthorised access to your personal data by third parties, in particular financial data, the order process is encrypted using SSL technology.

1.3.3 Data collection in the case of making contact

If you contact us using the ‘Contact’ option, order information material or products, or complete our product evaluation questionnaire, we will ask you for your name, email address and other personal information. It is up to you whether or not you provide this information. The data is stored on our server for evaluation purposes, for your information, and for sending and responding to your questions. The data can only be accessed by a small number of specially authorised employees and external service providers who are involved in the technical, commercial or editorial management of the server. We delete this data once it is no longer necessary to store it or we restrict processing in the case of legal retention requirements.

1.3.4 Protection of minors

Persons under the age of 18 should not provide any personal data to us without the approval of their parents or legal guardians. We do not request any personal data from children or teenagers. We do not knowingly collect this type of data and do not disclose it to third parties.

1.4 Disclosure of personal data to third parties

We use external service providers to process some of your data, for example in relation to payment processing or shipping of products. These have been carefully selected by us and commissioned in writing. They are bound by our instructions and we regularly monitor them. The service providers will not disclose this data to third parties.

Apart from this, data recorded when accessing our website or which you have voluntarily transmitted to us will only be transmitted to third parties if you have expressly consented to its transmission; if we are obliged to do so by law or by court decision; or if the transmission is necessary for our own legal or criminal investigations. Data is not shared for any other non-commercial or for commercial purposes. Also in the case of ordering products and requesting information material, we use the personal data you enter only within our company and the companies commissioned with payment processing or shipping.

4. Use of Google Maps

This website uses Google Maps to display interactive maps and to produce travel directions.

By using Google Maps, information concerning the use of this website, including your IP address and the (start) address entered in the route planner function, may be sent to Google in the United States. When you access one of our websites containing Google Maps, your browser will establish a direct connection with Google’s servers. The map content is transmitted directly to your browser from Google and is then integrated into the website. We therefore have no influence on the scope of the data collected by Google during this process. As far as we know, this data includes at least:

  • the date and time of your visit to the website,
  • the Internet address or URL of the website accessed,
  • the IP address, (start) address entered in the route planner.

We use Adobe Typekit for the visual design of our website. Typekit is a service of Adobe Systems Software Ireland Ltd., which gives us access to a font library. To display the fonts we use, your browser must connect to an Adobe server in the United States and download the font required for our website. Adobe consequently receives the information that our website was accessed by your IP address. For more information about Adobe Typekit, see Adobe’s privacy policy, which is available here:

6. Use of JavaScript libraries

Active components, such as JavaScript, Java applets and ActiveX controls, are used. These functions can be deactivated in your web browser settings.

7. Use of social media plug-ins

We currently use the following plug-ins: Facebook, Google Plus, Instagram, YouTube. We use a two-click solution for this. This means that when you visit our website, no personal data is shared with the providers of these plug-ins. You can identify the provider of the plug-in from the provider’s logo (Facebook = Facebook logo; Google Plus = Google Plus logo; Instagram = Instagram camera; YouTube = YouTube logo). Personal data is only transmitted if you click on one of these plug-ins. When the plug-in is activated, data is transmitted to the respective plug-in provider in anonymous form and stored there (with the American providers in the United States). We have no influence on the data collected or on the data-processing procedures, and we are not aware of the full scope of the data collection, the purposes thereof or the retention periods. As the plug-in provider collects data using cookies in particular, we recommend that you delete all cookies through your browser’s security settings before clicking on the respective logo.

If you activate a plug-in, the plug-in provider is notified that you have accessed the corresponding sub-page on our website. In addition, the data specified under 1.3.1 of this policy is transmitted, while in the case of Facebook, only an anonymous IP is collected in accordance with the information provided by the respective providers in Germany. This occurs regardless of whether you have an account with this plug-in provider and are logged in there. If you are logged in with the plug-in provider, this data is associated directly with your account. If you press the button and link to the page, for example, the plug-in provider also stores this information in your user account and shares this publicly with your contacts. If you do not wish to be associated with your profile by the plug-in provider, you should log out before pressing the button.

The plug-in provider stores this information in the form of usage profiles and uses it for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or the customised design of its website. This evaluation is carried out in particular (also for users who are not logged in) for the purposes of displaying demand-based advertising and to inform other social network users about your activities on our website. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles. To exercise this right, you will need to contact the respective plug-in provider.

Further information regarding the purpose and scope of the data collection and processing by the plug-in provider can be found in the privacy policies from these providers referenced below. There, you will also find further information about your rights in this regard and setting options to help you protect your privacy.
