Data protection

The technologies of the Internet and electronic data processing sometimes give the individual the feeling that he or she cannot gain an overview of the situation – where and for what purpose is his or her data stored?

Confidence in the careful and secure handling of customer data is particularly important to us. Therefore, we would like to explain to you as a visitor to our website how bbw ensures the confidentiality of your personal data and respects your personal rights.

Scope of application of the data protection declaration
This data protection declaration applies to all websites for which bbw is responsible. However, our Internet pages may contain links to external companies, to which our data protection declaration does not refer. bbw e. V. guarantees the confidentiality of your personal data: In accordance with the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG), all employees are bound to secrecy and the security precautions are promptly adapted to the current state of the art. In addition, the company data protection officer ensures that this data protection declaration is observed and adhered to.

Data transmitted by browser/Internet technology
In accordance with the principle of data avoidance and data economy, we only collect personal data on our website if this is necessary for the purpose you have requested and/or if you provide us with this data voluntarily. Therefore, in the course ofinformation gathering on bbw's own websites, we do not obtain:

  • no personal data, but the IP address of your computer, date and time, the browser type and operating system of your PC as well as the pages you view.
  • sending any e-mail to us:
    we obtain at least your name, your sender's e-mail address and your message as well as other contact addresses (address, telephone number) to which we should send our reply or under which we can reach you. No personal browsing profiles or similar are created or processed. Please keep in mind that this means of communication is not suitable for sending confidential messages – due to the current lack of data encryption options!

Cookies
Cookies are small text files that are stored on the Internet user's PC. The purpose is, for example, to control the connection during your visit to Internet pages. We use cookies only for the duration of your visit to the website. They contain purely technical information and no personal data. You can be sure that they will be automatically removed when you leave the pages.

Please do not accept cookies on PCs that are used by several people (e.g. in an Internet café) without user administration (personal login with secret password), as otherwise there is a risk of data abuse by other users!

Use of your personal data
The personal data that you provide to us via the Internet (e.g. your name, address or e-mail address) will only be processed for correspondence with you or for the purpose for which you have provided us with the data. In addition, we will use this data to inform you occasionally about interesting offers on products and services, provided that you have given us your express consent beforehand. You can object to this use of personal data at any time. We assure you that we will not pass on your personal data to third parties unless we are legally obliged to do so or you have given us your prior consent. Insofar as we use service providers for carrying out and handling of processing procedures, the contractual relationships are regulated in accordance with the provisions of the Federal Data Protection Act.

Your rights
You have a right to access all personal data that bbw e. V. has stored about you. In addition, you are entitled to have any incorrect data corrected and data that is no longer required deleted, provided that other legal regulations do not stipulate a storage obligation. In these cases you have the right to block the data.

Updating the data protection declaration
If bbw e. V. changes its Internet procedures or if the Internet and IT security technology develops further, this data protection declaration will be updated.
