Data Protection Declaration
We at DSA are delighted about your visit to our website and your interest in our company. Protection of your personal data is an important issue to us and we want you to feel safe when visiting our Internet pages.
In the following, we will explain which information we at DSA collect during your visit to our websites and how it is used.
Personal data is individual details on personal or factual relations of a certain or determinable individual person. This includes information such as your correct name, your address, your telephone number and your date of birth. Information that cannot be directly connected with your true identity such as favorite websites or the number of users of a page is not personal data.
Registering and Processing Personal Data
While you are visiting our websites our web servers temporarily save the following as standard for the purpose of system security; the connection data of the requesting computer, the websites you visit with us, the recognition data for the browser and operating system type and the website you visit us from. Any further personal details such as your name, your address, telephone number or e-mail address are not collected unless you voluntarily provide these details, e.g. within the scope of information enquiry.
Use and Circulation of Personal Data
We only use the personal data you provide for the purpose of technical administration of the websites and to meet your requests and requirements, therefore generally to respond to your enquiry. Transfer, sale or any other transmission of your personal data to third parties does not take place unless it is necessary for the purposes of contract processing.
“Cookies” are small files that allow us to save specific information on your PC about you, the user, while you are visiting our websites. Cookies help us to establish the frequency of use and the number of user visits to our internet sites and to design our offers for you as conveniently and efficiently as possible. On the one hand, we use so-called “Session Cookies”, which are only stored temporarily for the period of use of our internet pages. We also use “permanent Cookies” to record information on visitors who repeatedly access our internet pages. The reason for using Cookies is in the ability to offer you optimal user guidance and “recognize” you so we can present a varied internet page and new contents if you repeatedly use the site. The content of a permanent Cookie is restricted to an identification number. The name and IP address etc. are not saved. An individual profile of your patterns of use is not created. Use of our offers is also possible without Cookies. You can deactivate the storage of Cookies, restrict it to certain websites or set your browser so that it informs you as soon as a Cookie is sent. You can also delete Cookies from your PC hard drive at anytime (folder: “Cookies”). However, please note that you must expect restricted depiction of the site and restricted user guidance in this case.
DSA takes all necessary technical and organization security measures to safeguard your personal data against loss and misuse. Your data is therefore stored in a secure operating environment that is not accessible to the public. In certain cases your personal data is encrypted during transmission with so-called Secure Socket Layer-Technology (SSL). This means that communication between your computer and the DSA servers takes place with an approved encryption method if your browser supports SSL. Should you wish to contact DSA by e-mail, we point out that the confidentiality of transmitted information is not guaranteed. The contents of e-mails can be viewed by third parties.
We will inform you about the details of your data we have saved (e.g. name and address) upon written request.
