We collect your data as a result of you sharing your data with us. For example, this may be information you enter into our contact form.
Other data is collected by our IT systems automatically or after consent to record during your website visit. This data mainly includes technical information (e.g. web browser, operating system or time when the site was accessed). This information is automatically recorded when you access this website.
Some of the information is generated to ensure the website is delivered without error. Other data may be used to analyse your user patterns.
You have the right to obtain information about the source, recipients and purposes of your archived personal data at any time without having to pay a fee. You also have the right to request that your data be corrected or deleted. If you have consented to data processing, you have the possibility to withdraw this consent at any time, which will affect all future data processing. Furthermore, you have the right to request that the processing of your data is restricted in certain circumstances. Furthermore, you have the right to lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority. Please do not hesitate to contact us at any time if you have any questions about this or other data protection-related issues.
This website is hosted by an external service provider (host). Personal data collected on this website is stored on the host’s servers. This may include, but is not limited to, IP addresses, contact requests, metadata and messages, contract information, contact information, names, website access and other data generated through a website.
The host is used for the purpose of contract performance with our potential and existing customers (Art. 6(1)(B) GDPR) and in the interest of a secure, fast and efficient provision of our online services by a professional provider (Art. 6(1)(B) GDPR). Art. 6 para. 1 lit. F DSGVO. Our host will only process your data to the extent necessary to fulfil its performance obligations and to comply with our instructions in relation to that data.

World4You Internet Services GmbH
In order to ensure processing in compliance with data protection regulations, we have concluded a contract processing agreement with our host.
We hereby draw your attention to the fact that the transmission of data via the Internet (i.e. through e-mail communication) may involve security vulnerabilities. It is not possible to completely protect data from access by third parties.
Information about the responsible party (referred to as the “Controller” in the GDPR). The data processing controller on this website is:
The controller is the natural or legal person who, alone or jointly with others, makes decisions regarding the purposes and resources of the processing of personal data (e.g. names, e-mail addresses, etc.).
Among other things, tools from companies based in the USA or from non-EU countries that are not secure under data protection law are integrated into our website. When these tools are active, your personal data may be transferred to and processed in these non-EU countries. We must point out that in these countries a level of data protection comparable to that in the EU cannot be guaranteed. For example, US companies have a mandate to disclose personal data to security authorities and you, as a data subject, do not have legal recourse to defend yourself in court. Therefore, it cannot be excluded that US authorities (e.g. the Secret Service) may process, analyse and permanently archive your personal data for surveillance purposes. We have no control over these processing activities.
A variety of data processing transactions are only possible with your explicit consent. You can also revoke the consent you have already given at any time. This is without prejudice to the lawfulness of the data collection that took place before your revocation.
Right to object to the collection of data in special cases; right to object to direct marketing (Art. 21 DSGVO)
In the event of violations of the GDPR, data subjects are entitled to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in the authority in which they normally have their place of residence, work or their special place where the alleged violation occurred. The right to record a complaint applies regardless of any other administrative or judicial process available as a remedy.
You have the right to request that we share any data we process automatically based on your consent or to transfer it to you or a third party in a commonly used, machine-readable format for the performance of a contract. If you should request that the data be transferred directly to another controller, this will only be done if it is technically feasible.
For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content such as orders or enquiries that you as the website operator send to us, this website uses either an SSL or a TLS encryption programme. You can recognise an encrypted connection by checking whether the browser address bar changes from “http: //” to “https: //” and by displaying the lock symbol in the browser bar.
When SSL or TLS encryption is enabled, data you send to us cannot be read by third parties.
Within the framework of the applicable legal provisions, you have the right to request information about your archived personal data, its source and recipient, and the purpose of the processing of your data at any time. You may also have a right to have your data corrected or deleted. If you have any questions about this issue or any other questions about personal data, please do not hesitate to contact us at any time.
You have the right to request the imposition of restrictions on the processing of your personal data. You can contact us at any time for this purpose. The right to request a restriction on processing applies in the following cases:

The data you send to us via contact requests will remain with us until you request us to delete or revoke your consent to store it or the purpose of the data storage expires (e.g. after completion of your request). Mandatory statutory provisions – in particular statutory retention periods – remain unaffected.
This website uses functions of the web analytics service Google Analytics. The provider of this service is Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.
Google Analytics enables the website operator to analyse the behaviour patterns of website visitors. For this purpose, the website operator receives a variety of user data, such as the pages viewed, the time spent on the page, the operating system used and the origin of the user. Google may consolidate this data into a profile that is associated with the respective user or the user’s device.
Google Analytics uses technologies that recognise the user to analyse user behaviour patterns (e.g. cookies or device fingerprints). The website usage information recorded by Google is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA, where it is stored.
This analysis tool is used on the basis of Art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO. The operator of this website has a legitimate interest in analysing user patterns in order to optimise both the services offered online and the operator’s advertising activities. If a corresponding agreement has been requested (e.g. an agreement to store cookies), the processing is carried out exclusively on the basis of Art. 6 (1) (a) DSGVO; the agreement can be revoked at any time.
Data transfer to the USA is based on the Standard Contractual Clauses (SCC) of the European Commission. Details can be found here: https://privacy.google.com/businesses/controllerterms/mccs/.
We have activated the IP anonymisation function on this website. As a result, your IP address will be abbreviated by Google in the member states of the European Union or in other states that have ratified the Agreement on the European Economic Area before it is transmitted to the USA. The full IP address will be transmitted to one of Google’s servers in the USA and will only be abbreviated there in exceptional cases. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information for the purpose of analysing your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the operator of this website. The IP address transmitted by your browser in connection with Google Analytics may not be merged with any other data held by Google.
You can prevent the recording and processing of your data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.
We have concluded a contractual data processing agreement with Google and fully implement the strict provisions of the German data protection authorities when using Google Analytics.
