Data protection

Your trust in us is something we take very seriously.

Preface

The JOHS. THOMS GmbH & Co. KG as data controller informs you with this policy about the use of your personal data on the website jthoms.de as well as about your rights as a user. We take the protection of your data seriously and adhere to all data protection laws and regulations in the Federal Republic of Germany. In particular, we collect, process and use your personal data only if you have given your consent to this or it is legally permitted.

 

Personal Data

Personal data are all information which refer to an identified or identifiable natural person. With personal data a data subject can be identified or contacted. This includes, for example, the name, the address, the e-mail, the telephone number or an IP address assigned to you by your internet provider. No personal data are such information that do not help to identify you (anonymous data).

 

Automatically transmitted user data

Your Internet browser automatically transmits certain user data and so-called server log-files respectively to us for technical reasons when accessing our website. Amongst others, these include:

  • date and time of the access,
  • URL (address) of the referring website,
  • accessed file,
  • volume of transmitted data,
  • host name of the accessing device (IP address),
  • type and version of the browser
  • operating system.

These information are stored exclusively by us for the technical administration of our website, for the control of illegal acts in conjunction with our website and, partly, for the statistical analysis (see the information concerning Webalizer). We reserve the right to check these log files retroactively if there is reasonable suspicion of an illegal act due to concrete indications. As far as personal data are processed, we do so solely to protect our legitimate interest to control illegal acts in connection with our website. The legal basis for this is Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR. Personal data will be stored for a maximum period of seven days if there are no indications of any illegal use.

In general, the use of the website is possible without indicating personal data. In addition, we collect, process and use your data only to provide you with the information, services or offers desired or requested by you, e.g. by using the contact form or when you send us an e-mail. The indications are apparent from the input fields. Only fields marked as mandatory are required indications. Further indications are optional. By submitting these data you give your consent that we collect and process them for the purposes mentioned above. The legal basis for the processing is Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR. You have the right to withdraw this consent at any time. We store your personal data only as long as we need them to provide the information, services or offers you require.
