Data Protection Declaration for the www.buschfeld.de website
Status: 25. May, 2018
The protection of your data, and the confidential handling and processing of the same, are of prime importance to us. As of 25. May, 2018, the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into effect and all countries in Europe are required to observe the same regulations with regard to data protection. The Data Protection Declaration outlined in this document is in line with the guidelines laid down by the GDPR and the German Federal Data Protection Act, the goal being to provide information on what kind of data is collected, for what purpose, and how personal data is used by website owner Buschfeld Design GmbH.
This information refers to the Buschfeld Design GmbH website only and does not affect any other websites that can be visited by users via external links.
Although we have taken precautions to ensure the safety of our website it is not possible to guarantee complete protection of your data since security gaps on the Internet cannot be excluded.
Should you have any concerns regarding the collection of your data, you will find contact data of our respective partners under “Rights of the data subjects”.
Proprietor of data processing
The proprietor of data processing is Buschfeld Design GmbH, a limited liability company registered in 51105 Cologne, Germany.
Anonymous data collection
You may visit our website without providing any information about yourself. We do not save any personal data in this context. In order to serve market demands more effectively, we do analyse statistical data, but this process does not allow us to draw any conclusions with regard to you as an individual.
Location and duration of the data processing
The processing of data in conjunction with web-based services available on our website is handled exclusively at the Buschfeld Design GmbH main office by the staff responsible for technical and marketing issues. If required, personal data can be processed in conjunction with the services linked with the above-mentioned topic or area of business, but also in accordance with the data protection regulation.
If you use the contact form provided to send us enquiries or comments, we store the data linked to your enquiry, including the contact data provided by you personally, in order to be able to respond to your enquiry and follow up effectively. This data is not forwarded to third parties without your explicit consent. Any data entered by you in the contact form remains with us until you indicate that it can be deleted, you revoke your consent allowing us to save it, or the reason for storing the data is no longer relevant. Mandatory legal provisions – and data retention periods, in particular – remain unaffected.

In accordance with the paragraph above, the data subjects have the right to demand that data that has been processed illegally be deleted, only processed to a certain degree, anonymised or made inaccessible, and should the case arise, they are entitled to withdraw their consent that their data be processed for legitimate reasons. The refusal to make one’s data available for processing means that the individual has no right to draw upon any services offered on the website.

For technical reasons the following data (examples listed below) which your Internet browser transfers to us or our webspace provider, is collected (so-called server log files):

This anonymous data is stored separately from any personal data you may have provided and therefore does not allow any conclusions as to any specific person. The data is evaluated for statistical purposes in order to be able to optimise our Internet presence and serve our customers better.
Data retention periods
Personal data is only processed using automated tools for as long as is necessary in order to reach the goals for which the data was collected. Special safety measures are undertaken to prevent data loss, illegal or inappropriate use, and unauthorised access.
Buschfeld Design GmbH processes the data in accordance with the above, unless the data subject requests the data be deleted.
Forwarding of personal data
Your data is not forwarded to third parties without your express consent. With the exception of our service partners who support us with the handling of contractual relationships. In such cases, we adhere strictly to the regulations laid down in the German Federal Data Protection Law. Data transfer is therefore restricted to a minimum.

Buschfeld Design GmbH assumes no liability for the quality or completeness of the information provided.
