Data privacy statement

The protection of your privacy when using our websites and in connection with the processing by us of personal data associated therewith as well as the protection of all business data is a matter to which we attach great importance and which we take into account in our business processes. We process personal data acquired when you visit our websites in confidence and exclusively in compliance with the statutory provisions.

Our staff and the service providers commissioned by FLUX are committed to secrecy and to complying with the provisions of the German Federal Data Protection Act [Bundesdatenschutzgesetz]. Moreover, all technical and organisational measures are taken which are necessary to ensure the privacy of data.

Therefore, we wish you to know when we store data, which data we store and how we use it. To this end, we provide this data privacy statement to inform you of our data protection measures.

Data acquisition

Data acquisition
You may use our online presentation as a rule without disclosing personal data. When you access our website, data is stored for backup purposes, such as the name of your internet provider, the website from which you visit us, the pages you are visiting on our websites and your IP address. This data might enable us to identify who you are but we do not use this data in any way related to your person. The data may be evaluated for statistical purposes, while, however, the individual user remains anonymous. Where data is forwarded to external service providers, we have ensured by technical and organisational measures that the data privacy law provisions will be complied with.

Acquisition and processing of personal data

Acquisition and processing of personal data
Personal data is acquired only where you provide such data to us voluntarily, e.g. in the context of any registration, by completing a form, by sending an e-mail, in the context of a request for products or services or when requesting materials or other information.

The database and its contents will remain at FLUX and at our provider. Neither we nor any person commissioned by us will provide your personal data to a third party in any form, unless you have given your consent to this or we are obligated to do so by any official order.

Purposes of use
We will use the personal data gathered about you only to provide you with the information you desire to receive about products or services or in connection with any other request, or for other purposes for which you have given us your consent, provided there is no statutory obligation to the contrary.

Right of access and correction

Right of access and correction
You have the right to check any data about you which we have stored and to correct it if you believe it is outdated or incorrect. To do this, just send an e-mail to the e-mail address given in the legal notice.

Right of revocation
You have the right to revoke at any time with effect for the future your consent to the use of your personal data. To do this, just send an e-mail to the e-mail address given in the legal notice.

Data retention
We will store personal data for as long as necessary to provide a service which you have requested or to which you have consented, unless any statutory obligation to the contrary exists, e.g. in a pending lawsuit.

Acquisition and use of usage data
The following information will be collected when you visit our website: IP address, website from which you visit us (referrer), pages visited, files downloaded, videos/audio content opened, clicks on individual links, search words and search phrases entered (site search), duration of your visit and browser used. Should you visit our website via online advertising such as banners, video ads or search engine advertising, we will in addition record which banner or adword has motivated your visit to the FLUX websites.

This knowledge enables us to optimise our websites and even better tailor them to the needs of our visitors.

Use of cookies

Use of cookies
Cookies are small text files stored locally in the temporary storage of the website visitor's internet browser. Cookies enable recognition of the internet browser to optimise the website and facilitate its use. This data will not be used to identify the website visitor.

Most browsers are set to automatically accept cookies. However, you may deactivate the storage of cookies or set your browser to inform you when a cookie is placed.

If you wish, you may at any time delete a cookie. However, this may result in individual functions no longer being available to you. Please check your browser's help function to see how you can delete a cookie.

Third-party cookies
FLUX websites use the YouTube video platform operated by YouTube LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, in the U.S. YouTube is a platform which enables playback of audio and video files.

When you visit a page of our website, its integrated YouTube player establishes a connection to YouTube to ensure the technical transmission of the video or audio file. When the connection to YouTube is established, data is transmitted to YouTube. Again, cookies and active components are used for this. FLUX has no influence on the processing of personal data by YouTube.

For information about the purpose and extent of data acquisition and the processing and use of the data by YouTube and your rights and options to make settings to protect your privacy please see YouTube's data privacy statement.

 

Web analysis tool

Use of the Piwik web analysis tool
In respect of its websites, FLUX takes access measurements using the Piwik web analysis tool. The access data is acquired in an anonymised fashion, so that it cannot be traced back to the user. In particular, this is effected by anonymising the IP address.

In the measurements, cookies are used to enable an analysis of the use of the website. In particular, this enables FLUX to improve data quality. The information generated about the use of the websites is stored on our server in Germany which is operated by FLUX.

Only authorised persons can access this anonymised data.

External links

Use of external links
FLUX websites may contain links to websites of third parties (website providers not associated with us). Once the link is clicked on, we no longer have any influence on the collection, storage and processing of personal data possibly transmitted by clicking on the link (such as the IP address or the URL of the website where the link is located) because, naturally, the actions of third parties are beyond our control. FLUX does not assume any responsibility in respect of the processing of such personal data by a third party.

Security and children

Security
FLUX uses technical and organisational protection measures to protect the data you provide against accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction or access by unauthorised persons. Our protection measures are continuously revised based on technological advance.

Children
Protection of the privacy of children is an important issue. Therefore, we do not gather, process or use on our website any information about persons of which we know they are below the age of 13, without previously having obtained the verifiable consent of a legal guardian. On request, legal guardians may view the information provided by their children and request that such information be deleted.

Contact
In case of any problem, question or suggestion, please contact one of the persons named above or send an e-mail to the address provided.

The constant development of the internet requires adjustments to be made from time to time to our data privacy statement. We reserve the right to make appropriate adjustments at any time.
