If you have any questions regarding the protection of your personal details or this data protection statement, please contact us using the details above. We will then be happy to provide you with information about the data we store about you.

Consent to the use of information
Simply using our website or reading this data protection statement does not replace the legal requirement for you to provide your consent to allow us to collect, transfer, process and use your personal details in the form described below and for the purposes described below. We would also like to emphasise that, once you have given your consent, you retain the right at any time to revoke the consent given to us to collect and use data in the future.

Protection under the German Data Protection Act (Bundesdatenschutzgesetz (BDSG)) and the German Telecommunications Act (Telemediengesetz (TMG))
Your details are fully protected by us in accordance with the statutory provisions. Such statutory protection comprises, in particular, the German Data Protection Act (BDSG) and the German Telecommunications Act (TMG).

Future changes to this data protection statement
In our experience, the legal position relating to data protection is subject to regular reforms, to which our data protection statement may have to adapt. Similarly, the content of our website is subject to ongoing alterations and developments. We therefore reserve the right to adapt this data protection statement accordingly and, as appropriate, to send you notification of the changes to our data protection statement. However, you should also visit our website regularly to find out about any changes to our data protection statement and our other conditions of use. We would like to assure you that we will not make significant changes to our data protection statement that may lead to a more extensive use of your details without your consent.

Collection and recording of data on accessing our website
Below you will find information about the type of personal details that are collected during your visit to our website and how we use them. Every visit to our website (and to its subsites) is automatically registered and recorded. In particular, the IP address of the computer making the request for access may be collected and recorded. Similarly, each click on, download of or other instance of access to files that are available on our website will be noted and recorded, as appropriate. The associated information that is stored will only be used for our internal statistical evaluation. The following information will be recorded: file name; time of access (date and time); amount of data accessed or transferred; the browser used; confirmation of whether the access or transfer was successful; name of the domain or e-mail making the request. Confirmations of receipt and reading of e-mails, and log-ins and passwords will also be collected and recorded.

Collection of other personal details on a voluntary basis only
Personal details other than those specified in the preceding paragraph are only collected and saved by us if this information has been provided by you voluntarily, e.g. as part of an e-mail enquiry, through a contact form provided by us or in the course of registration on our website as an author or customer. At any time you have the right to revoke the consent that you have given to us to collect your details in the future.

Use and communication of personal details
Insofar as you have sent your personal details to us or notified us of them, we shall only use them to answer your queries, to handle contracts concluded with you, to process the orders you place with us and for technical administration, further filing and invoicing. Subject to your consent, we shall also send you our latest information at regular intervals in the form of a free newsletter, insofar as we offer such a service. Your personal details will only be passed on or otherwise communicated to third parties if this is required for the purpose of implementing a contract or for invoicing, or if you have previously given your consent for us to do so, including by accepting a provision in our General Terms and Conditions (in particular in this context, consent to notification of the contact details of the author to the customer to preserve the legitimate interests of the customer concerned, in the event of breaches of copyright or breaches of other industrial property rights by the author), or if we are entitled or obliged to do so by law (e.g. provision of information to the authorities in criminal proceedings). At any time you have the right to revoke the consent that you have given us with future effect.

No transfer of personal details abroad or to supranational or cross-national bodies
As a matter of principle, we shall not transfer any data abroad or to supranational or cross-national bodies. Should it become necessary to send data abroad or to supranational or cross-national bodies, this shall only take place in accordance with the provisions of the statutory regulations pursuant to §§ 4b and 4c BDSG.

Deletion of personal details
Immediately on revocation of your consent, we will delete all of your personal details. The data will also be deleted if knowledge of the data is no longer required for the purpose for which it was originally stored or if storing such data is or has become impermissible for legal reasons.

Right to disclosure
On request, we shall be happy to provide you with information about the data stored by us about you, including its origin, the parties to whom it has been sent and the purpose for which it has been stored (see § 13 para. 7 TMG and § 34 BDSG).

Protection against unauthorised access to personal information by third parties
We would like to assure you that we shall protect your personal details stored by us against unauthorised access by third parties, insofar as it is possible and reasonable for us to do so using modern technical and organisational methods. If we make contact with you by e-mail, or you do so with us, we cannot guarantee complete data security despite the various protective measures that we have put in place; as a result, we recommend that you contact us by post with any confidential information.

Brief information about cookies
We use so-called cookies on our website. They help us to make our website more user-friendly, more effective and more secure. Cookies are small text files that are saved by your browser and stored on your computer. Cookies do not damage your computer in any way and do not contain viruses.

Session cookies are handled by the server and are not stored on the hard drive of your computer. Session cookies are required for navigation when visiting our website. If you do not want to accept cookies, including session cookies, the help menu of most browsers (usually presented in the form of a question mark) will explain to you how to set your browser so that new cookies are not accepted when using the internet. Many browsers can also be set to provide an automatic notification when you receive a new cookie. The help menu of your browser will also usually explain how to delete from your computer all of the cookies that you have previously received. Some browsers can also be set in such a way that cookies are only created by the requesting address concerned or accepted by your computer in accordance with your specifications.
