5. DATA PROTECTION
Where the sunfire GmbH website gives users the option to enter data of a personal or business-related nature (email addresses, names, postal addresses), that information is disclosed to us by the user on an explicitly voluntary basis. We only gather, process and use personal user data where required within the framework of the delivery of the respective service. Please refer to our data protection page for more information.
6. EXCLUSION OF LIABILITY (INFORMATION)
sunfire GmbH accepts no liability for the topicality, accuracy, completeness or quality of the information published on its website. Such information should therefore not be used as a basis for legally relevant or cost-related decisions without confirmation of its validity. In individual cases you may contact us directly in order to verify the validity of the information in question.
7. EXCLUSION OF LIABILITY (REFERENCES AND LINKS)
sunfire GmbH accepts no responsibility for the content of hyperlinks included on its website. We have no influence on the content of linked pages, and despite the careful monitoring thereof are therefore unable to assume liability for the accuracy, legality, completeness and availability of third-party content. The content of linked pages is the sole responsibility of the provider thereof. The provider of the linked page has sole liability for illegal, incorrect or incomplete content and damage caused as a result of the use of third-party information. Please inform us if you encounter dubious information on a page accessed via a hyperlink included on the sunfire GmbH website.
8. USAGE OF CONTACT DATA
It is prohibited for third parties to use and/or pass on contact data such as postal addresses, telephone/fax/mobile telephone numbers or email addresses published on the sunfire GmbH website for the sending of information which has not been explicitly requested. sunfire GmbH explicitly reserves the right to take legal action against any “address gatherers” or senders of unsolicited advertising who violate this ban.
9. VIOLATION OF INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS
If you suspect that an intellectual property right held by you or your organization is being violated by the sunfire GmbH website, please inform us without delay in order that prompt remedial action can be taken. Please note that the time-consuming use of a solicitor to issue a warning at the expense of the service provider is not commensurate to the actual or suspected intention.
10. SEVERABILITY CLAUSE
All other clauses will remain unaffected if these conditions are found to include a loophole or an individual clause within them loses its validity. The invalid clause will be replaced by a valid clause which best corresponds with the actual intention of the original clause. The same applies in the case of a loophole.
sunfire GmbH takes the protection of your personal data seriously. Special emphasis is therefore placed on observing your privacy during the processing of personal data. Personal data is handled in accordance with the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG); the operators of the sunfire GmbH website undertake to handle personal data with discretion. This data protection statement does not cover linked pages operated by third-party providers.
1. PERSONAL DATA
Personal data is seen as information which could be used to identify the individual it relates to. It includes details such as the user’s real name, postal address, email address and telephone number. It does not include information which is not directly linked to the user’s real identity, for example favourite websites or the number of people who use a site.
It is possible as a basic principle for users to use the sunfire GmbH website without disclosing their identity.
We endeavour to make the use of available website functions dependent on as little personal data as possible. Users who wish to enter into contact with us need only provide their name and email address. Users wishing to receive information by post need to provide at least their name and postal address.
2. SERVER-BASED DATA
Each visit to the sunfire GmbH website sees related user data (e.g. IP address, date, time, pages viewed) stored on our server. No personal data analysis is carried out. The right to carry out statistical analyses of anonymized data sets is reserved.
The usage of personal data for the purposes of technical website management and client administration is restricted to the extent actually required. Personal data is only stored if provided voluntarily.
3. PASSING ON OF PERSONAL DATA
Persons under the age of 18 should not communicate any personal data to us without the consent of their parents or guardians. We neither request personal data from minors, collect such data nor pass such data on to third parties.
6. LINKS TO OTHER WEBSITES
The sunfire GmbH website includes links to other websites. We have no influence on the adherence of the operators of those websites to data protection regulations.
7. QUESTIONS AND COMMENTS
Please send us an email if you have any questions, suggestions or comments on the subject of data protection.
