IV) Collection and Storage of Personal Data and the Form and Purpose of its Usage
1. When visiting the website
a. When you open our website on a device, the browser you are using will automatically send information to the website’s servers. This information is stored temporarily in something known as a log file. The following information is stored without you doing anything and is then deleted automatically, normally after one week:
- IP address
- Date and time of access
- Difference in time zone to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT)
- Content of query (specific page)
- Access status/HTTP-status code
- Amount of data transferred
- Directing website
- Operating system and its interface
- Language and version of the browser software
b. We process the specified data for the following purposes:
- To ensure that no problems occur when establishing a connection to the website
- To make sure our website is clear and simple for users
- To analyse the security and stability of our systems
- To investigate any misuse of access to our website (DoS/DDoS attacks etc.)
- To complete any other administrative tasks
c. The legal basis for these data processing activities is Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 point f of the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Our legitimate interest is based on the aforementioned reasons for collecting your data. In general, we do not use the data collected to draw conclusions about you as a person. However, we reserve the right to do so should we need to clarify any misuse of access to our website.
2. When contacting us
a. If you have questions of any kind, we offer you the option of contacting us over the phone or by e-mail. If you have questions of any kind, we also offer you the option of contacting us using a contact form provided on our website. When using this form, you are required to enter a valid e-mail address so that we can find out who sent the enquiry and send a response to the right person.
b. Any other information in the message itself goes beyond what is actually required. When you enter this data and send it off, an encrypted e-mail is automatically generated and sent to us directly at email@example.com, without being stored temporarily. Nevertheless, confidential data should not be sent using this channel.
c. Data processing activities for the purpose of contacting us are based on Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 point a GDPR on the basis of your voluntary consent. For (pre-)contractual queries (e.g. related to future membership), these activities are based on Art. 6 (1) point b GDPR. The data that we collect and process when you contact us is deleted once your query has been dealt with or upon expiry of any statutory retention periods.
a. After submitting your consent, you are able to subscribe to our newsletter, which provides you with information about our latest interesting offers. The products and services advertised are listed in the declaration of consent.
b. The subscription process for our newsletter uses something known as the double opt-in process. This involves the following steps: When you register, we send an e-mail to the e-mail address you gave us. In this e-mail, we ask you to confirm that you wish to receive the newsletter. If you fail to confirm your registration within 72 hours, your information will be blocked and automatically deleted after one month. We will also store the IP address you used and the times at which you first registered and then confirmed your registration. The purpose of this process is to verify your registration and to enable us to clarify any possible misuse of your personal data.
c. The only information required to send the newsletter is your e-mail address. [Any other information provided in the specially marked fields is voluntary and is used so that we can address you in person.]
d. Following your confirmation, we save your e-mail address for the purpose of sending you our newsletter. The legal basis for this is Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 point a GDPR.
e. You are able to withdraw your consent to receiving the newsletter at any time and thus unsubscribe from the newsletter. To withdraw your consent, simply click on the link provided in every e-mail newsletter, use this form on our website, send an email to Newsletter@geholit-wiemer.deor send a message to the contact details provided on the “Impressum” page on our website (legal notice page, only available in German).
Cookies are mainly used in the field of online marketing, for example to promote personalized advertising. The keyword "targeting" is the group of activities that are intended to enable the target group-oriented promotion of advertisements on websites. A continuation of this advertising strategy is the so-called retargeting, in which a provider/advertiser marks the customer during his visit at the company's own homepage by using a tracking cookie and tracks him during his foray through the Internet. On third-party sites, it can then regularly be promoted its own advertising as a banner to remind to the own products and services.
We reserve the right to use the so-called targeting on our site. There are two ways to prevent this:
You prevent the storage of cookies in your browser. The procedure varies depending on the browser. In this case, your settings apply to each page you visit.
You inform us about your wish that explicitly our websites may not store cookies from you. We are happy to comply with this request. To do this, use the opposition banner for the cookies.
THE FOLLOWING COOKIES ARE USED:

V) SSL Encryption
This website uses SSL encryption to ensure security and to protect the transmission of confidential information, e.g. any queries you send to us, as the website operator.
