We take the protection of personal data very seriously and would like to share information in this privacy statement about when we store which data that is relatable to you (so-called “personal” data), and explain how we make use of it.

 

Which legal regulations apply?

In their capacity as the provider of this website muellerPrange is subject to the provisions of the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and the German Telemedia Act (TMG). We have taken technical and organizational measures to ensure that data privacy provisions are complied with by us and by external contractors assigned by us.

 

What is personal data?

Personal data is information, which can be used to detect your identity. Personal data includes your name, address, postal address, telephone number, and email address. Personal data is also information that can be associated with you, together with other information, e.g. your IP address, which you used at a particular point of time. Only information, which cannot be associated with you anymore, as for instance, the pages of muellerPrange’s website most frequently visited by the entirety of users, or the number of users of muellerPrange.com, is not considered personal data.

 

Which personal data is needed for the use of muellerPrange.com?

In general, you can use our website without disclosing your identity. If you inquire about one of our personalized services like, for instance, documents for our products, or subscribe to the mailing list for one of our newsletters, we require your name, your email address and other personal information depending on the service and the desired method of contact. It is your decision whether or not you enter this information.

 

How is data stored?

We store your information on specifically protected servers located in Germany. Access to such servers is limited to a small number of authorized staff at muellerPrange who is in charge of the technical, administrative and editorial maintenance of the servers. In accordance with your access, data (for instance, the IP address, date, time and website visited) is stored on our servers for reasons of protection; and such data may allow the identification of the user. Except for the type of processing described below (for instance, in the context of etracker, or for social plugins), data is not used in any other way. The statistical analyses of anonymous data remain reserved.

 

Will personal information be passed on to a third party?

Your personal information will only be used by muellerPrange. We will not pass on your personal information to any third party without your explicit approval. Additionally, access of third parties or transfer to third parties shall be excluded except for legally permitted cases, for instance, in the case of commissioned data processing, or if we are legally or by adjudication obliged to do so.

If data is disclosed to contractors during commissioned data processing they shall be subject to the BDSG, and, if applicable, to other additional or relevant alternative data privacy provisions and contractual conditions. The website www.muellerPrange.com is hosted on our behalf by the company netcup GmbH.

 

Right to information, rectification and deletion, revocation of consent

If you have provided us with personal data, you may request to have them deleted at any time. If statutory retention periods require further provision, we will lock these records.

You may revoke your declaration of consent to the processing of your personal data (for instance, to receive our newsletter) at any time for future effect.

Twitter
Our website contains social plugins from Twitter. These plugins are provided by Twitter Inc., 795 Folsom St., Suite 600, San Francisco, CA 94107, USA.

XING does not store any personal data, specifically not the IP address you use to access this website.

LinkedIn
Our website also integrates social plugins for the social network LinkedIn provided by LinkedIn Corporation, 2029 Stierlin Court, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (hereinafter referred to as “LinkedIn”). You can identify LinkedIn plugins by the LinkedIn logo or the “recommend button” on our website. When you visit our website, the plugin establishes a direct connection between your browser and the LinkedIn server. LinkedIn is consequently informed that you have visited our website and provided your IP address. If you click on the LinkedIn “recommend button“ while you are logged into your LinkedIn account, you will be able to link the content of our website to your LinkedIn profile. As a result, LinkedIn will be able to allocate your visit to our website to your user account. As the provider of this website we would like to indicate that we have no knowledge of the content of the transmitted data and its use by LinkedIn.

Vimeo
Our website further uses Vimeo plugins for services provided by Vimeo LCC, 555 West 18th Street, New York, New York 10011, USA. If you access pages on www.muellerPrange.de containing such a plugin, a connection is established to Vimeo servers and the plugin is displayed on the website by notifying your browser. Vimeo’s server is then informed about the pages on our website you have visited. If you are logged on as a member of Vimeo, Vimeo allocates this information to your personal user account for these platforms. When using these plugins like, for instance, clicking/activating the start button of a video or by sending a comment, the information is assigned to your Vimeo user account. If you do not want Vimeo to assign your visit to our website to your user account, please log out of it. More information about the collection and use of data by Vimeo is available from Vimeo’s privacy policy at http://vimeo.com/privacy
