Designation of the responsible authority
The responsible body for the data processing on this website is:
USOVO, Peter Urban (owner)
An der Beile 2
Phone: +49 (0) 2373 17911 65
The responsible body decides alone or together with others upon the purpose and means of the processing of personal data (e.g. name, contact details, or the like).
Revocation of your consent to the data processing
Some procedures of the data processing are only possible with your expressed consent. You have the possibility to revoke your already given consent at any time. An informal communication by e-mail is sufficient to revoke your consent. The lawfulness of the data processing until your revocation remains unaffected from the revocation.
Right of appeal to be submitted to the competent supervisory authority
As a concerned party you have a right of appeal to the responsible supervisory authority in case of a breach of provisions under the Data Protection Act. The responsible supervisory authority regarding data protection issues is the privacy and data protection representative of the federal state, in which the registered office of the enterprise is situated. The following link provides a list of the data protection representatives as well as their contact details: https://www.bfdi.bund.de/DE/Infothek/Anschriften_Links/anschriften_links-node.html.
Right of data portability
You will have the right to have handed out to yourself or to a third party the data which we automatically process on the basis of your consent or to fulfil a contract. The data will be made available in a machine-readable format. If you demand the direct transfer of the data to another person responsible, this will only be performed as far as it is technically possible.
Right of information, adjustment, barrier, deletion
In the frame of the applicable statutory provisions, you have at any time the right to request free of charge information about your saved personal data, their recipients and the purpose of the data processing, and, if applicable, a right to demand an adjustment, blocking or deletion of such data. Please do not hesitate to contact us concerning this matter and also in case of any further questions about the subject of personal data under the contact data indicated in the imprint.
SSL or TLS encryption
For security reasons and in order to protect the transfer of private contents, which you have sent to us being the site operator, our website will use an SSL or TLS encryption. In this way, any data which you transfer to us via this website cannot be read by third parties. You may identify an encrypted connection by the “https://” address row of your browser and by the key symbol in the browser row.
Server log files
In the server log files, the provider of the website automatically collects and saves the information which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:
Browser type and browser version
Used operating system
Host name of the accessing PC
Time of the server request
There will be no merger of these data with other data sources. The art. 6 para. 1 item b GDPR forms the basis of the data processing, which allows the processing of data to execute a contract or to take precontractual measures.
Data transmission when the contract was concluded and the goods were sent
Personal data will only be transmitted to third parties, if there is a need in the frame of the contract processing. Third parties may be for instance payment service providers, logistic companies
or specialised service providers such as tax consultants. We also have to meet our legal obligation towards the tax office or any other governmental authorities and the related transmission of personal data. No further transfer of the data takes place unless you have expressly approved such a transfer.
The art. 6 para. 1 item b GDPR forms the basis of the data processing, which allows the processing of data to execute a contract or to take precontractual measures.
Any data transmitted on a contact form will be saved including your contact data, in order to be able to process your inquiry or to be available for any follow-up questions. Such data will not be forwarded without your approval.
The processing of the data entered in the contact form is carried out exclusively on the basis of your consent (art. 6 para. 1 item. a GDPR). You have the possibility to revoke your already given consent at any time. An informal communication by e-mail is sufficient to revoke your consent. The lawfulness of the data processing until your revocation remains unaffected from the revocation.
Any data transmitted on the contact form remain with us, until you request us to delete them, revoke your consent to such saving or there is no more need to save such data. Mandatory legal provisions - in particular retention periods - remain unaffected.
Retention period of contributions and comments
Contributions and comments as well as the related data such as IP addresses will be saved. The content remains on our website until it is being completely deleted or has to be deleted for legal reasons.
The retention of contributions and comments is carried out on the basis of your consent (art. 6 para. 1 item a GDPR). You have the possibility to revoke your already given consent at any time. An informal information by email is sufficient for the revocation. The lawfulness of the already performed data processing procedures remains unaffected from the revocation.
