Privacy Policy

We are pleased that you are visiting our website and that you are interested in our company. Protecting your data is extremely important to us. By providing you with the following data protection details, we would like to inform you about the purposes and the scope of the collection and processing of your personal data that we carry out when you use our website and how we protect your privacy when you provide us with your data.

Responsibility

Sternico GmbH, Dreimännerstraße 5, 38176 Wendeburg is the operator of this website and, as the controller within the meaning of Article 4 (7) General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), is responsible for compliance with the valid data protection provisions.

The personal data of our users is stored and processed by us in compliance with the relevant provisions, in particular the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and the Teleservices Act (TMG) in their respective current versions. All personal data is only collected for defined, clear and lawful purposes and is not stored for longer than is necessary.

Personal data

Personal data is defined as individual details regarding personal or factual circumstances of an identified or identifiable natural person (e.g. name, date of birth and contact data).

Website

In principle, you can use our website without providing your personal data. However, it may be necessary for you to transmit your data to us in order to use certain applications on our website. Therefore, your use of our website may be restricted if you do not provide your data.

When you visit our website, our web servers temporarily store each access instance in a log file. The following data may be recorded in connection with this and stored until automated erasure: for example, IP address, date and time of access, data quantities transmitted, reports about the success of the website access, identification data for the browser and operating system being used, the website from which access takes place and the IP address of your internet service provider. The processing of this data takes place for the purpose of facilitating use of the website, technical administration of the network infrastructure, ensuring system security and optimising the website. This is deemed a legitimate interest according to Article 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. f GDPR and the required data processing to achieve the described purposes is therefore legitimised from a data protection law perspective.

Other data collection

We collect, store and process your personal data (e.g. first name, surname, address, email address, telephone number) insofar as a business relationship exists or is to be established, both for the design of the content of the business relationship and for any changes to it. We also use your personal data insofar as you have provided us with it for registration on our website and have provided consent to the processing of your personal data. Further, we collect, store and process your personal data if you contact us by sending us an email insofar as this is necessary for processing your enquiries and correspondence. The personal data collected by us is erased promptly once it is no longer required for this purpose unless statutory retention periods apply.

Passing on the data

We use your personal data within Sternico GmbH. Our external service providers which carry out data processing on our behalf are contractually obliged within the meaning of Article 28 GDPR to handle the personal data in accordance with the valid provisions. Insofar as these companies come into contact with your personal data, we have ensured that they comply with the provisions of data protection laws by means of legal, technical and organisational measures, as well as regular monitoring.

If you find links belonging to other controllers on our website (e.g. Google Maps) and click on the link, you are using the website directly via the respective controllers, meaning that our Privacy Policy does not apply for this website.

In principle, we do not transmit your personal data to a third country or an international organisation outside the European Economic Area (EEA). Should such transmission take place in individual cases, this only takes place to third countries for which suitability arrangements of the European Commission are provided or the appropriate level of data protection has been ensured by means of suitable or appropriate guarantees (e.g. binding corporate rules or EU standard contractual clauses).

We reserve the right to transmit your personal data to organisations entitled to receive the information in the event we are legally obliged to do so or required to do so by a court order.

No transmission of your personal data to other third parties takes place in principle.

Cookies

Various information is stored in cookies on our websites, which serve to make the application user-friendly and the design of the website more effective overall. Furthermore, the data stored in a cookie makes repeatedly filling out forms unnecessary. The cookies we use have a time limit and are deleted regularly.

You can manage the acceptance of cookies from our websites independently in your browser and block them where appropriate. You can also delete cookies which have already been set at any time. Further, you can find out about the option of deactivating cookies in your selected browser’s settings. If you do not accept any cookies, this may lead to restrictions when it comes to using our websites. We refer to the fact that, after erasing your cookies, you may need to activate opt-out cookies which have been set again.

We recommend that you regularly delete cookies and your browser history manually.

We distinguish between cookies which are necessary for technical purposes and statistical and marketing cookies. Cookies which enable page usage are necessary for technical purposes. Cookies which are not necessary for technical purposes are all cookies which are used for marketing and statistical purposes. Sternico GmbH does not use any cookies for marketing or statistical purposes but only uses cookies which are necessary for the error-free operation of the website.

Google Web Fonts

Web Fonts provided by Google are used on our website for the uniform display of fonts. When you access the web page, the required Web Fonts are loaded in your browser cache. This is necessary in order to be able to display texts and fonts correctly.

The browser being used establishes a connection with Google servers for this purpose. As a result, Google is informed that our website was accessed using your IP address. The use of Google Web Fonts takes place in the interest of the uniform and visually appealing display of our website. This constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of Article 6 (1) lit. f GDPR.

If your browser does not support Web Fonts, your computer uses a standard font.

You can find more information about Google Web Fonts at https://developers.google.com/fonts/faq and in the Google Privacy Policy: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/.

Data security

In order to protect the data you transmit against unauthorised access and misuse by third parties, we have taken extensive technical and organisational operational security measures. These measures meet the high legal requirements of the national provisions and are continuously adapted to the state of the art of technology.

Rights of the data subject

As the data subject you have the following rights with regard to us pursuant to Articles 15 to 22 GDPR:

  • Right to information,
  • Right to rectification or erasure,
  • Right to restriction of processing,
  • Right to object to data processing,
  • Right to data portability.

Insofar as you have provided us with your consent to use personal data, you may withdraw this consent at any time. For this purpose, please send an email to datenschutz@sternico.com. Alternatively, please send us your request by post to the address provided above.

Furthermore, you have the option of lodging a complaint with a data protection supervisory authority regarding our data processing of the personal data. The data protection supervisory authority responsible for us is “The State Data Protection Officer in Lower Saxony, Prinzenstraße 5, 30159 Hannover”.

Inclusion, up-to-dateness and changes to the Privacy Policy

By using our websites, you confirm that you agree to the data usage described above. The Privacy Policy is dated 15.09.2020 and is currently valid. Due to the ongoing further development of our websites or the implementation of new technologies, it may be necessary to adapt this Privacy Policy to reflect the current version. Sternico GmbH therefore reserves the right to change the Privacy Policy at any time with future effect. Therefore, you should regularly access this website to inform yourself about the current version of our Privacy Policy.
