In our capacity as private company, the M. Asam® GmbH, we are subject to the Federal Data Protection Law (BDSG) and the German law on telemedia (TMG).

This way you can feel secure about the internal handling.

General

Basically it is possible to visit our online-presence without disclosing your identity. But if you wish to use any of our services, for example the shop, it is necessary to collect process and use your personal data. This is to avoid misapplication but also to simply be able to handle your order or answer your questions. It is your free decision, whether you enter personal data or not.

Personal data

Personal data is information, used to find out your identity. It includes information such as your real name, address, postal address, telephone number. It does not include information which is not directly related to your real identity (for example, favorite webpages or number of visitors to a site).

When you access our site, our servers will store data for backup purposes which may enable identification (e.g. IP address, date, time and pages visited). There is no individual-related utilization. We reserve the right to evaluate anonymous data for statistical purposes.

The postings in our discussion and comment forum are accessible for everyone. You should examine your contributions before publication carefully whether they do not contain data, which are not intended for the public.

You must be aware the fact that your contributions could become available worldwide through the technology of searching tools, without the use of our website. In the case of foreign providers, it can often be impossible to ensure the deletion or correction of such entries. There is no commitment to the company M. Asam® GmbH to ensure a cancellation.

Right of withdrawal
