– hereinafter named as “Provider“ –


In order to use the Website or to provide services or perform deliveries, we collect various types of data, some of which are provided by you as a user and some of which are necessary for the use of the Website or arise from the use of the Website. Personal data are individual details about the personal or factual circumstances of a certain or definable natural person, such as your name, address, telephone number, date of birth, bank details and your IP address. A transfer outside of the Heliograph Holding GmbH Group, a sale or any other transfer of your personal data to third parties will only take place if the passing on is necessary for the execution of the contract or if you have given your express consent. No other use of the information is made.


For the use of our Websites the following Privacy Policy shall apply:


1.         We protect your personal data by taking all reasonable and necessary technical and organizational measures in such a way, that they are not accessible to unauthorized third parties. When communicating by e-mail, confidentiality of the content cannot be guaranteed without additional security measures, so we recommend the use of encryption or similar security measures for confidential information.


2.         If you send us e-mail messages or other communications, in particular product inquiries, to us or enter them directly on the Website, we retain such communications in order to process the inquiry, answer questions and improve the Website, products and services. The data provided by you will be stored by us, but not processed or passed on in other ways than to fulfil the inquiry.


3.         You have the right to inquire at any time about the data collected on your person free of charge. Each user has the right to revoke his/her consent to the use of his/her personal data with effect for the future at any time, without prejudice to the legality of the processing carried out based on the consent until revocation. For the provision of information and revocation, please contact the data protection officer at the above-mentioned e-mail address, who will then provide the information immediately.


4.         The website may contain licensed content of third parties and/or hyperlinks to whole or individual websites of third parties. The provider is only responsible for its own contents on these pages according to the general laws, but does not assume any responsibility for the contents of third parties or contents of such linked websites, nor does the provider adopt these websites and their contents as its own. Linked pages were checked for possible legal violations at the time of linking, no legal infringements were recognizable at the time of linking. The provider is not obliged to monitor the transmitted or stored information of third parties or to check for illegal actions, hyperlinks or contents. However, a permanent control of the contents of the linked pages is unreasonable without concrete evidence of a violation of the law. The use of third party content is therefore at the user’s own risk. If we become aware of any legal infringements via messages or in any other way or if we are obliged to remove or block the use of information in accordance with general laws, we will remove these contents and/or links immediately.


5.         Data you provide to us as a user:


a)        Insofar as the website or an interaction via our website (e. g. registration for newsletters, product inquiries) requires the input of personal data, the basic data for the input are determined by the respective fields of the website and then transmitted to the provider and processed and stored by him. The necessary data is only collected, stored and used for using the website and its services. In the context of a product inquiry, we are also entitled to inform you about comparable products and services of our group of companies.


b)        Insofar as you register for the use of a newsletter, this registration can be carried out by giving the e-mail address without further information. The user is free to provide further information when registering for the newsletter. The registrant expressly agrees to the sending of the newsletter to the then indicated e-mail address. We use this data exclusively for sending newsletter e-mails to registered customers to keep them informed about the latest news. You can unsubscribe from the mailing list at any time by clicking on the “Unsubscribe Newsletter” button in the respective newsletter. This data will be deleted accordingly.


c)         The data created by the user in the context of the use of the website, through interaction via the website (e. g. inquiry) or a newsletter registration will be stored on servers that are operated in our name and located within the European Union. However, the server operators are subject to the same data protection standards as we are; there is no transmission to third countries outside the European Union.


d)        If data transmission in third countries should be necessary in exceptional cases, this is only carried out in accordance with the legal admissibility regulations (until 25 May 2018 in accordance with §§ 4b and 4c BDSG, from 25 May 2018 in accordance with Art. 44 ff. DSGVO).


e)        A communication of the personal data collected to public and non-public authorities will only take place to the extent that this is required by priority legal regulations, to internal bodies, insofar as this data is required there within the framework of the proper performance of tasks.


f)          The deletion of personal data collected by the provider takes place after expiry of the legal, statutory or contractual retention periods. If personal data are not covered by such a rule, they will be deleted, if the purposes for which the personal data were collected, have ceased to apply. The anonymization or the blocking of use of data is equivalent to the deletion of data.


6.         data collected directly when using the website:

However, set cookies are automatically deleted after leaving the website.


b)        When you visit the provider’s website, the server automatically saves the data transmitted by your browser. These server logs contain information such as your web request, your IP address, browser type, browser language, date and time of your request and one or more cookies that can be used to uniquely identify your browser.
