Area of applicability
This data protection declaration explains to users the type, scope and purpose of the collection and use of personal data by the responsible provider TOLERANT Software GmbH & Co. KG on this website (hereinafter referred to as the “Website”).
Access data/server log files
The provider (or their webspace provider) collects data each time users access the Website (so-called server log files). Access data includes:
The name of the website that is called, the file, date and time of the call, data volume transferred, message stating the call was successful, browser type and version, user’s operating system, referrer URL (the site visited previously), IP address and the requesting provider.
The provider shall use the log files only for statistical evaluations for the purpose of operation, safety and optimizing the Website. However, the provider reserves the right to check the log data at a later point if, due to concrete evidence, there is justified suspicion that the data is being used illegally.
Handling personal data
Personal data is information that is used to identify a person, i.e. that can be traced back to one person. This includes their name, e-mail address or telephone number. But data about their preferences, hobbies, memberships or which websites they have viewed also counts as personal data.
Personal data is then only collected, used and passed on by the provider if this is permitted by law or the user has consented to such a collection of data.
When getting into contact with the provider (for example, using the contact form or by e-mail), the provider saves the information provided by the user for the purpose of processing the request and for the case where follow-up questions arise.
We use the newsletter to provide you with information about us and what we have to offer.
If you would like to receive the newsletter, we require a valid e-mail address for you, as well as information that allows us to check that you are the owner of the specified e-mail address or that the owner of the e-mail address has consented to receiving the newsletter. We do not collect any other data. This data is used only for sending out the newsletter and is not passed on to any third parties.
When you register to receive the newsletter, we save your IP address and the date of registration. We save this for the sole purpose of having proof in the event that a third-party misuses an e-mail address and registers to receive the newsletter without the knowledge of the authorized owner of the address.
At any time, you can revoke consent to the saving of the data and the e-mail address, and the use of this information to send the newsletter. You can revoke your consent yourself using the link in the newsletters, in your profile area or by sending a message using the methods of contact mentioned above.
Integrating services and content from third parties
It may be the case that this Website contains content from third parties, such as videos from YouTube, map material from Google-Maps, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites. In order to access these sites, the provider of this content (hereinafter referred to as the “Third-Party Provider”) must use the user’s IP address. This is because, without the IP address, they cannot send the content to the relevant user’s browser. The IP address is therefore required to display this content. We endeavor to only use content whose provider uses the IP address only to deliver the content. However, we have no influence on whether or not the Third-Party Providers save the IP addresses, e.g. for statistical purposes. If we are aware of this, we will inform the user.
