Privacy Policy

Collection and Processing of Personal Data

In general, you can visit the Martin Greve GmbH webpages without us requiring any personal data from you. We only receive information about which IP address retrieved which page at which time. This information is analyzed for statistical purposes. The individual visitor remains anonymous.

On some pages, you can enter personal data such as your name and address in input fields. These data are only processed for correspondence with you and for the purpose for which you provided the data to us. If you contact us via a form, the information you provide will be transmitted in encrypted form. In this way, misuse of the data by third parties is prevented.

Access Data/Server Log Files

Martin Greve GmbH collects data on each access to the offering (so-called server log files). Access data include the following:

Name of the retrieved webpage, file, date and time of retrieval, transmitted data volume, notification of successful retrieval, browser type and version, operating system of the user, referrer URL (last page visited), IP address, and requesting provide.

Martin Greve GmbH only uses log data for statistical analysis for the purpose of operation, security, and optimization of the offering. However, Martin Greve GmbH reserves the right to examine log data retroactively if there is a justified suspicion of unlawful use based on concrete grounds.

“Personal data” means information that can be used to identify a person, i.e., information that can be traced back to a specific person. Names, e-mail addresses, and telephone numbers are all personal data. Data on preferences, hobbies, memberships, or webpages viewed by a person are also considered to be personal data.

Integration of Third-Party Services and Content

Third-party content, which may include, for example, YouTube videos, Google Maps materials, Google fonts, or graphics from other websites may be integrated into this online offering. This always requires that the providers of this content (hereinafter referred to as “third-party providers”) have knowledge of the IP address of the user because they could not send the content to the respective user’s browser without the IP address. The IP address is hence necessary for display of this content. We strive to use only content whose respective providers use the IP address solely for the delivery of the content. However, we have no influence over whether or not the third-party providers, e.g., save the IP address for statistical purposes. We will notify the users accordingly if we become aware of this.
 
YouTube: We use YouTube’s “extended data protection mode” to embed videos. A cookie that, according to YouTube, contains no personal information will only be saved on your computer when you play the video. More information on the collection and use of data can be found in the YouTube Privacy Policy at www.google.com/intl/de/policies/privacy/.
 
This website uses the Google Maps API for visually representing geographical information. When Google Maps is used, Google also collects, processes, and uses data on the use of the map features by users. More information on data processing by Google can be found in Google’s Privacy Policy. You can also change your personal data privacy settings there in the privacy center.
 
Google Fonts: To render our content correctly and graphically appealingly across browsers, we use script libraries and font libraries such as Google fonts (www.google.com/webfonts/) on this website. Google fonts are transferred to your browser’s cache so that they don’t have to be loaded multiple times. If the browser does not support Google fonts or denies access, the content is displayed in a standard font.
 
Calling of script libraries or font libraries automatically triggers connection to the operator of the library. It is theoretically possible for operators of the corresponding libraries to collect data – although it is not clear as to whether or not and, if so, for which purposes they would do so.

The Privacy Policy of the library operator Google can be found at www.google.com/policies/privacy.

Cookies

Like many other websites, we use so-called cookies. Cookies are small text files that are transferred from a website server to your hard drive. Through them, we automatically receive certain data such as your IP address, browser, and operating system from your computer and your internet connection.

Cookies cannot be used to launch programs or spread viruses to a computer. By means of the information contained in cookies, we can make navigation easier for you and enable our webpages to be displayed correctly.

Under no circumstances will the data collected by us be passed on to third parties or a link to personal data be established without your consent.

Of course, you can also view our website without enabling cookies. Internet browsers are regularly set to accept cookies. You can deactivate the use of cookies at any time via your browser settings. Please use your browser’s help functions to find out how to change these settings. Please note that some features of our website may not work if you deactivate the use of cookies.

Use of Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a Web analysis service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called cookies, which are text files saved on your computer to enable analysis of your use of the website. The information on your use of this website generated by the cookie is usually transferred to and saved on a Google server in the US. However, within the Member States of the European Union or other contracting parties to the European Economic Area, your IP address is first truncated by Google due to the activation of IP anonymization on this website. The complete IP address is only transmitted to and truncated on a Google server in the US in exceptional cases. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google uses this information to analyze your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity, and to provide additional services associated with the website use and internet use to the website operator. The IP address transmitted from your browser using Google Analytics is not merged with other data from Google.

You can prevent cookies from being saved by making the appropriate setting on your browser; however, if you disable cookies, you may not be able to use all of the features of this website. In addition, you can prevent the collection of cookie data related to your use of the website (including your IP address) for Google and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available under the following link: browser add-on for deactivation of Google Analytics.

Additionally or as an alternative to the browser add-on, you can prevent tracking by Google Analytics on our pages by clicking on the link. This causes an opt-out cookie to be installed on your device. This prevents future data collection by Google Analytics for this website and this browser as long as the cookie remains installed in your browser.
