We are delighted by your interest in our website and the products and services offered by PARAVAN GmbH. Protection of your personal data when visiting our website is of considerable importance to us. We take this protection very seriously, especially in relation to the collection, transmission, processing and use of your personal data when you visit our website.
Office responsible for data protection
(also referred to in this Privacy Statement as “PARAVAN GmbH” or “us” or “we” or “our” or similar)
If you have any questions concerning the protection of your personal data or this Privacy Statement, please simply contact this office.
Consent to use of data
Merely using our website or reading this Privacy Statement does not replace the agreement on your part required by law to our collecting, transmitting, processing and using your personal data in the form specified below and for the purposes specified below. We also highlight the fact that, having given your consent, you are entitled at any time to revoke any consent you may previously have given us to record data or use data with effect for the future.
Data collection and logging when accessing our website
You will find information as to which personal data are collected when you visit our website and how they are used by us below:
Each access to our website and its sub-sites is automatically recorded and logged. In particular, the IP address of the computer visiting the site can be recorded and logged. Accordingly, each download, each click or any other retrieval of a retrievable file on our website is also recorded and logged, if applicable. The following are logged in the process: Time of the retrieval (date and time); file name; quantity of data retrieved or transmitted; notification of whether the retrieval or transmission was successful. Delivery and read receipts for emails are also recorded and logged, if applicable.
Recording of additional personal data only on a voluntary basis
Unlike the personal data specified in the previous section, this information is only collected and stored by PARAVAN GmbH, if it has been provided voluntarily, such as in the context of an enquiry by email. We draw attention to the fact that you are entitled at any time to revoke any consent you may previously have given us to record data with effect for the future.
Use and transmission of personal data
If you have transmitted or disclosed personal data to us, PARAVAN GmbH will only use these to execute contracts concluded with us, to process orders placed with us, to answer your questions and for any technical administration, additional file management and settlement. Your personal data will only be passed on to third parties by us or otherwise transmitted if this is necessary for the purposes of executing the contract or for settlement purposes, or you have previously given your consent or we are entitled or obliged to do so on the basis of legal provisions. We draw your attention to the fact that you are entitled at any time to revoke any consent you may previously have given us with effect for the future.
Deletion of personal data
Immediately after revoking your consent, we shall delete your personal data unless we are obliged to store them by law; in this case we shall block the data for other uses. Data shall also be deleted if knowledge of the data is no longer necessary to fulfil the purpose pursued by storage or if their storage is or has become no longer permissible for other legal reasons.
Protection against data being spied on by third parties
We shall protect your personal data stored by us against being spied upon illegally by third parties if this is reasonably possible with the help of modern technical and organisational means. Complete data security and confidentiality cannot be guaranteed for email traffic. We therefore recommend that confidential information is transmitted in writing by post or in a face-to-face conversation.
A brief reference regarding cookies
PARAVAN GmbH only uses session-related cookies, as they are known, on this website and its sub-sites. Session cookies are managed on the server and are not stored on your computer’s hard disk. Session cookies make navigation easier when you visit the PARAVAN GmbH website but lose their validity immediately you leave this website. If you visit our website again in future, a new cookie will be created on the server, which will lose its validity again when you leave. Accordingly, the visitor to our website or the visitor’s personal data cannot be identified with the help of a session cookie. If you do not wish to accept cookies of any kind, the help function on most browsers (usually shown in the form of a question mark) will explain how to set your browser to make sure that new cookies are no longer permitted when using the Internet. Many browsers can be set in such a way that your browser will automatically tell you when you have received a new cookie. Your browser’s help function will also explain how you can delete all the cookies you have received from your computer again.
Use of Google Analytics
You can prevent cookies being installed on your browser by setting your browser software to this effect or please click on the following link within browsers on mobile devices to set an opt-out cookie, which will prevent recording by Google Analytics within this website in future (this opt-out cookie will only work in this browser and only for this domain; if you wish to delete cookies in this browser, you must click on this link again): Deactivate Google Analytics; we draw your attention to the fact that it may not be possible to use all this website’s functions in this case. By using this website, you declare your agreement to data collected about you being processed by Google in the type and manner described above and for the purpose specified above.
Data collection and storage by Google may be vetoed at any time with effect for the future. You can find out more about this from tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.
In the light of the discussion about the use of analytical tools using complete IP addresses, we should like to draw attention to the fact that this website only uses Google Analytics with the extension "_anonymizeIp()" and therefore IP addresses are only processed in an abbreviated form to rule out any direct reference to persons.
