General Information

The following notes give a simple overview of what happens to your personal information when you visit our website. Personal data is all data that personally identifies you. Detailed information on the subject of data protection can be found in our privacy policy listed under this text.

Data Collection on Our Website

Who is responsible for the data collection on this website?

The data processing on this website is carried out by the website operator. Its contact details can be found in the Imprint section of this website.

How do we collect your data?

On the one hand, your data will be collected by you communicating it to us. This can be, for instance, data that you enter in a contact form.

Other data is collected automatically when visiting the website via our IT systems. These are, above all, technical data (e.g., Internet browser, operating system or pageview times). Once you enter our website the collection of this data becomes automatic.

What do we use your data for?

Part of the data is collected to ensure a flawless delivery of the website. Other data can be used to analyze your user behavior.

What rights do you have regarding your data?

You have the right to obtain free information about the origin, recipient and purpose of your stored personal data at any time. You also have a right to request the correction, blocking or deletion of this data. For this purpose and for further questions about data protection, you can contact us at any time at the address given in the imprint. Furthermore, you have a right of appeal to the relevant supervisory authorities.

Analysis and Third-Party Tools

When you visit our website, your surfing behavior can be statistically evaluated. This happens mainly with cookies and with so-called analysis programs. The analysis of surfing behavior is usually anonymous and cannot be traced back to you. You can object to this analysis or prevent it by not using certain tools. Detailed information can be found in the following Data Privacy Statement.

You can object to this analysis. We will inform you about the possibilities of objection in this Data Privacy Statement.

2. General and Mandatory Information

Data Protection

The operators of these pages take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the statutory data protection regulations and this privacy policy.

If you use this website, various personal data will be collected. Personal information is information that personally identifies you. This Data Privacy Statement explains which information is collected and what we use it for, as well as explaining how and why this happens.

Please note that data transmission over the Internet (for example, when communicating via e-mail) may have security flaws. A complete protection of the data accessed via third parties is not possible.

Note on the Responsible Entity

The data processing unit responsible for this website is:

Walther Management GmbH
represented by Mark Walther
Luitpoldstraße 5
82131 Gauting
Telephone: +49 (0) 89 412 000 35
E-Mail: walther@walther-management.com

The responsible entity is the natural or legal person who, alone or in concert with others, decides on the purposes and means of processing personal data (such as names, e-mail addresses, etc.).

Revocation of Your Consent to Data Processing

Many data processing operations are only possible with your expressed consent. You can revoke an existing consent at any time. An informal message to us via email suffices. The legality of the data processing carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

Right of Appeal to the Relevant Supervisory Authority

In the case of violations of data protection law, the person concerned has the right of appeal to the relevant supervisory authority. The competent supervisory authority for data protection issues is the appointed data protection officer of the federal state where our company is based.

SSL or TLS Encryption

For security reasons, and to protect the transmission of confidential content like orders or requests you send us as a site operator, this site uses an SSL or TLS encryption. You can recognize an encrypted connection by changing the address line of the browser from "http: //" to "https: //" and the lock symbol in your browser line.

If SSL or TLS encryption is enabled, the data you submit to us cannot be read by third parties.

Information, Blocking, Deletion

Within the framework of the applicable legal provision, you have the right to free information on your stored personal data, their origin and recipient and the purpose of the data processing and, if necessary, a right to rectification, blocking or deletion of this data at any time.

The use of published contact information pursuant to legal requirements for sending unsolicited advertising and information materials is hereby prohibited. The operators of the pages expressly reserve the right to take legal action in the event of the unsolicited sending of advertising information, such as via spam e-mails.

3. Data Collection on our Website

Cookies

The internet pages partly use so-called cookies. Cookies do not harm your computer nor contain viruses. Cookies serve to make our offer more user-friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small text files stored on your computer by your browser.

Most of the cookies we use are so-called "session cookies". They are automatically deleted after your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your device until you delete them. These cookies allow us to recognize your browser the next time you visit.

You can set your browser to obtain information about the setting of cookies and only allow them in individual cases, exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or generally, and enable the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. Disabling cookies may limit the functionality of this website.

ookies needed to carry out the electronic communication process or that provide certain functions you wish to use (e.g., shopping cart function) are stored on the basis of Article 6, Paragraph 1-f of the German General Data Protection Act (DSGVO). The website operator has a legitimate interest in the storage of cookies for the technically error-free and optimized provision of its services. Insofar as other cookies (such as cookies for analyzing your surfing behavior) are stored, they will be treated separately in this Data Privacy Statement.

Server Log Files

The provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:

  • Browser type and browser version
  • Used operating system
  • Referrer URL
  • Host name of the accessing computer
  • Time of the server request
  • IP address

Merging this information with other data sources will not be done.

The basis for data processing is DSGVO Article 6, Paragraph 1-f, which allows the processing of data for the performance of a contract or pre-contractual measures.

Contact Form

If you send us inquiries via the contact form, your details from the inquiry form – including the contact details you provided therein – will be stored in order to process the request and in case of follow-up questions. We will not share this information without your consent.

The processing of the data entered into the contact form is therefore exclusively based on your consent (DSGVO Art. 6 (1)). You can revoke this consent at any time. An informal message to us via e-mail suffices. The legality of the data processing operations carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

The information you provide in the contact form will remain with us until you ask us to delete it, revoke your storage consent, or the purpose for data storage no longer applies (e.g., after your request has been processed). Mandatory statutory provisions – retention periods in particular – remain unaffected.

4. Newsletter

Newsletter Data

If you would like to receive the newsletter offered on the website, we require your e-mail address as well as information that allows us to verify you as the owner of the furnished e-mail account and that you agree to receive the newsletter. Further data are not collected or only done on a voluntary basis. We use this data exclusively for the delivery of the requested information and do not pass it on to third parties.

The processing of the data entered into the newsletter registration form takes place exclusively on the basis of your consent (DSGVO Art. 6 (1)). The consent granted for the storage of the data, e-mail address and their use for sending the newsletter can be revoked at any time, for instance, via the "unsubscribe" link in the newsletter. The legality of the already completed data processing operations remains unaffected by the revocation.

The data deposited for the purpose of obtaining the newsletter will be saved by us from the newsletter until your cancellation and deleted after cancellation of the newsletter. Data that has been stored for other purposes (such as e-mail addresses for members) remain unaffected.

CleverReach

This website uses CleverReach for sending newsletters. The provider is CleverReach GmbH & Co. KG, Mühlenstr. 43, 26180, Rastede (Germany). CleverReach is a service with which newsletter delivery can be organized and analyzed. The data you enter for the purpose of receiving the newsletter (e.g., e-mail address) will be stored on CleverReach's servers in Germany or Ireland.

Our newsletters sent with CleverReach enable us to analyze the behavior of newsletter recipients. This can, among other things, analyze how many recipients have opened the newsletter message and how often which link in the newsletter was clicked on. With the help of so-called conversion tracking, whether a predefined action (for example, purchase of a product on our website) has taken place after clicking on the link in the newsletter can also be analyzed. For more information on data analysis through CleverReach newsletters, please visit https://www.cleverreach.com/en/functions/reporting-and-tracking/.

Data processing is based on your consent (DSGVO, Art. 6 (1) (a)). You can revoke this consent at any time by unsubscribing from the newsletter. The legality of the already completed data processing operations remains unaffected by the revocation.

If you do not want to be analyzed by CleverReach, unsubscribe from the newsletter. For this purpose, we provide a link in every newsletter message. Furthermore, you can unsubscribe from the newsletter directly on the website.

The data deposited for the purpose of subscribing to the newsletter is stored by us from the newsletter until it is taken out and deleted after removal of the newsletter both from our servers and those of CleverReach. Data that has been stored for other purposes with us (such as e-mail addresses for the members area) remain unaffected.

For more information, see the CleverReach Privacy Policy at: https://www.cleverreach.com/en/privacy/.

Conclusion of an Order Data Processing Contract

We have concluded a data processing contract with CleverReach and fully implement the strict requirements of the German data protection authorities when using CleverReach.

5. Plugins and Tools

Google Web Fonts

This site uses so-called web fonts provided by Google for the uniform representation of fonts. When you call up a page, your browser loads the required web fonts into your browser cache to display texts and fonts correctly.

To do this, the browser you use must connect to Google's servers. As a result, Google learns that our website has been accessed via your IP address. The use of Google Web Fonts is in the interest of a consistent and attractive presentation of our online services. This constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of DSGVO Article 6, Paragraph 1 (f).

If your browser does not support web fonts, a default font will be used by your computer.

Vimeo

Our website uses plugins from the video portal Vimeo. The provider is Vimeo Inc., 555 West 18th Street, NY, New York 10011, USA.

If you visit any of our sites equipped with a Vimeo plugin, you will be connected to Vimeo's servers. This tells the Vimeo server which of our pages you have visited. In addition, Vimeo obtains your IP address. This also applies if you are not logged into nor have an account with Vimeo. The information collected by Vimeo is transmitted to the Vimeo server in the United States.

If you are logged into your Vimeo account, you allow Vimeo to associate your surfing behavior directly with your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your Vimeo account.
