FRIMO Group GmbH aims to promote users’ faith in the Internet. For this reason, it clearly sets out how it deals with personal data. Below you will learn what information is collected and what is done with it.
Explanatory notes on data protection
If you opt to pass on personal information to FRIMO Group GmbH via the Internet, for example to allow correspondence to take place or for an order to be executed, then these details will be carefully handled in accordance with the strict rules of the German Federal Data Protection Act (Bundesdatenschutzgesetz – BDSG).
When web pages are called up, FRIMO Group GmbH obtains usage data, which is saved for backup purposes and which may possibly allow for identification (for example IP address, date, time and pages viewed). This data is analysed by FRIMO Group GmbH to allow it to learn about user behaviour and for the production of statistics. In the process, the high security standards of the German Telecommunications Data Protection Act (Teledienstedatenschutzgesetz – TDDSG) and the Data Protection Ordinance for Telecommunications Companies (Datenschutzverordnung für Telekommunikationsunternehmen – TDSV) are observed in all of the measures undertaken. No data is evaluated on a purely person-specific basis. We reserve the right to undertake statistical analysis of datasets on an anonymised basis.

Passing on personal details to third parties
FRIMO Group GmbH stores its data on specially protected servers in Germany. Access to the data is possible only for a limited number of persons authorised by FRIMO Group GmbH and entrusted with the technical, commercial or editorial servicing of these servers.
Right of cancellation
If you ask FRIMO Group GmbH not to use your personal data for making any further contact and/or to delete it, the company will take the corresponding steps. Data essential for the execution of an order or for commercial purposes remains unaffected by any notice of cancellation or any deletion. You will appreciate that, in the event of cancellation, it will no longer be possible to provide a personalised service, as the service is based on the use of the customer’s data.
During an online session, textual information is collected in cookies and stored in a special file in ASCII format (cookie.txt) on the user’s hard drive. The user’s web browser determines where the cookies are stored on the user’s system. Cookies are details which are returned to the server at the time of the next visit online. In all cases, they can only be read by the server which set them up in the first place.
