The following data protection declaration applies to the use of our online offer, the website: www.schiffssicherheit.de (hereinafter "Website").
We attach great importance to data protection. The collection and processing of your personal data is carried out in compliance with the applicable data protection regulations, in particular the General Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO).

If you wish to object to the collection, processing or use of your data by us in accordance with these data protection provisions, either in whole or for individual measures, you can address your objection to the person responsible.
2 General purposes of the processing
We use personal data for the purpose of operating the website, for responding to enquiries via our contact form and for the implementation and fulfilment of legal relationships.
3 What data we use and why
The hosting services used by us serve to provide the following services: Infrastructure and platform services, computing capacity, storage space and database services, security services and technical maintenance services that we use for the purpose of operating the website.
In doing so, we, or our hosting provider, process inventory data, contact data, content data, contract data, usage data, meta data and communication data of customers, interested parties and visitors to this website on the basis of our legitimate interests in an efficient and secure provision of our website pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 p. 1 f) DSGVO in conjunction with Art. Art. 28 GDPR.
3.2 Access data
We collect information about you when you use this website. We automatically collect information about your usage behaviour and your interaction with us and register data about your computer or mobile device. We collect, store and use data about every access to our website (so-called server log files). The access data includes:
- Name and URL of the retrieved file
- Date and time of the retrieval
- data volume transferred
- Message about successful retrieval (HTTP response code)
- Browser type and version
- Operating system
- Referer URL (i.e. the previously visited page)
- Websites that are accessed by the user's system via our website
- Internet service provider of the user
- IP address and the requesting provider
We use this log data without assigning it to you personally or otherwise profiling it for statistical evaluations for the purpose of operating, securing and optimising our website, but also to anonymously record the number of visitors to our website (traffic) and the extent and type of use of our website and services, as well as for billing purposes to measure the number of clicks received from cooperation partners. This information allows us to provide personalised and location-based content and to analyse traffic, troubleshoot and improve our services.
This is also our legitimate interest according to Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 f) DSGVO.
We reserve the right to check the log data retrospectively if there is a justified suspicion of unlawful use based on concrete indications. We store IP addresses in the log files for a limited period of time if this is necessary for security purposes or for the provision of services or the billing of a service, e.g. if you use one of our offers. After the order process has been cancelled or after payment has been received, we delete the IP address if it is no longer required for security purposes. We also store IP addresses if we have a concrete suspicion of a criminal offence in connection with the use of our website. We also store the date of your last visit as part of your account (e.g. when registering, logging in, clicking links etc.).
We use so-called session cookies to optimise our website. A session cookie is a small text file that is sent by the respective servers when you visit a website and is temporarily stored on your hard drive. This file as such contains a so-called session ID, with which various requests from your browser can be assigned to the common session. This enables your computer to be recognised when you return to our website. These cookies are deleted after you close your browser. They are used, for example, to enable you to use the shopping cart function across several pages.
To a lesser extent, we also use persistent cookies (also small text files that are stored on your terminal device), which remain on your terminal device and enable us to recognise your browser on your next visit. These cookies are stored on your hard drive and delete themselves after the specified time. They last between 1 month and 10 years. This enables us to present our offer to you in a more user-friendly, effective and secure manner and, for example, to display information on the page that is specifically tailored to your interests.
The following data and information are stored in the cookies:
- Log-in information
- Language settings
- entered search terms
- Information about the number of visits to our website and the use of individual functions of our website.
When the cookie is activated, it is assigned an identification number and an assignment of your personal data to this identification number is not made. Your name, IP address or similar data that would enable the cookie to be assigned to you are not inserted into the cookie. On the basis of the cookie technology, we only receive pseudonymised information, for example, about which pages of our shop were visited, which products were viewed, etc.
You can set your browser so that you are informed in advance about the setting of cookies and can decide in individual cases whether you want to exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or generally, or that cookies are completely prevented. This may restrict the functionality of the website.
3.4 Data for the fulfilment of our contractual obligations
We process personal data that we need to fulfil our contractual obligations, such as name, address, e-mail address, gender, billing and payment data. The collection of this data is necessary for the conclusion of the contract.
The deletion of the data takes place after the expiry of legal retention periods.
The legal basis for the processing of this data is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 b) DSGVO, because this data is required so that we can fulfil our contractual obligations towards you.
3.5 E-mail contact
If you contact us (e.g. via contact form or e-mail), we process your data to process the enquiry and in the event that follow-up questions arise.
If the data processing is carried out for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, which are carried out upon your request, or, if you are already our business partner, for the implementation of the contract, the legal basis for this data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 b) DSGVO.
We only process other personal data if you consent to this (Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 a) DSGVO) or we have a legitimate interest in processing your data (Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 f) DSGVO). A legitimate interest is, for example, to respond to your email.

We make every effort to ensure the security of your data within the framework of the applicable data protection laws and technical possibilities.
Your personal data is transmitted encrypted with us. We use the SSL (Secure Socket Layer) coding system, but we would like to point out that data transmission on the Internet (e.g. when communicating by e-mail) can have security gaps. Complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.
To secure your data, we maintain technical and organisational security measures in accordance with Art. 32 DSGVO, which we continually adapt to the state of the art.
We also do not guarantee that our offer will be available at certain times; disruptions, interruptions or failures cannot be ruled out. The servers we use are carefully backed up on a regular basis.
7 Disclosure of data to third parties, no data transfer to non-EU countries
In principle, we only use your personal data within our association.
If and to the extent that we involve third parties in the performance of contracts (such as logistics service providers), they will only receive personal data to the extent that the transfer is necessary for the corresponding service.
In the event that we outsource certain parts of data processing ("commissioned processing"), we contractually oblige commissioned processors to use personal data only in accordance with the requirements of data protection laws and to ensure the protection of the rights of the data subject.
A data transfer to bodies or persons outside the EU outside the case mentioned in this declaration in point 4 does not take place and is not planned.
