Data protection

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

You are normally able to call up all of the web pages of FRIMO Group GmbH without revealing any of your own personal data. If, in individual cases, your name, your address or any other personal data are required, you will be notified accordingly in advance. The data associated with your own personal use will be used to make the service provided to you by FRIMO Group GmbH as convenient as possible, and to improve it.
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

If data should be passed on to service providers within the context of processing order data, these providers are bound to comply with the BDSG and other statutory provisions and are bound by contract to the privacy policy of FRIMO Group GmbH. Where FRIMO Group GmbH is so obliged by law or court ruling, the company will pass on your data to the necessary extent to those offices entitled to request it. FRIMO Group GmbH will not pass on your details to third parties for other purposes without your express consent.

Security

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.

Use of cookies

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. 
FRIMO Group GmbH only uses cookies where they are absolutely essential for user functions or where they simplify navigation through the website. The information is not made available to any third party as cookies are used exclusively for the above-mentioned purposes. Most browsers are set up so that they accept cookies automatically. However, this function can be deactivated in the browser at any time. You can set up your browser to notify you as soon as cookies are transmitted.
