Online website contents

Dangelmayer & Seemann provides no guarantee as to the timeliness, correctness, completeness, or quality of the information provided. Liability claims against Dangelmayer & Seemann GmbH with respect to material or intellectual damages caused by the use or non-use of the featured information, or by the use of incorrect or incomplete information, are fundamentally excluded, insofar as no deliberate or gross negligence on the part of Dangelmayer & Seemann GmbH can be proven. All offers are non-binding and subject to change. Dangelmayer & Seemann GmbH reserves the right to change, supplement, or delete parts of the pages or the entire website without separate announcement, or to discontinue publication temporarily or permanently.

Links

With direct or indirect references to other websites (hyperlinks) lying beyond the sphere of responsibility of Dangelmayer & Seemann GmbH, liability only arises if Dangelmayer & Seemann GmbH is aware of their contents and if it is technically possible to prevent their use in case of illicit contents and if Dangelmayer & Seemann GmbH could be reasonably expected to do so. Dangelmayer & Seemann GmbH expressly declares that there was no obvious illegal content on the linked pages at the time of their insertion. Dangelmayer & Seemann GmbH has no influence over the current and future formats, content, or authorship of the linked pages. It therefore expressly disassociates from all contents of any and all linked sites which have been changed since the creation of the link. This statement applies to all links and references inserted within the company’s own website and to third-party entries in guest books, discussion forums, mailing lists, and all other types of databases provided by Dangelmayer & Seemann GmbH that grant write authorization on the content level to third parties. Liability for illegal, flawed, or incomplete contents, particularly for any damages resulting from utilization or non-utilization of contents thus presented, rests solely with the provider of the website referred to, and not with whoever merely refers to the publication in question with a link.

Dangelmayer & Seemann GmbH endeavors to observe the copyright of all published images, audio recordings, video sequences, and texts, to use their own images, audio recordings, video sequences, and texts, and to make use of public domain images, audio recordings, video sequences, and texts. All trademarks and brands identified on the website and possibly protected by third parties are subject without restriction to the regulations of the appropriate trademark law and to the property rights of their registered owners. It should not be concluded that trademarks are not protected by the rights of third parties merely because they are mentioned!

Relevant personal data contain personal details (e.g. name, address and other contact data). In addition, this may also include order data, data from the fulfilment of our contractual obligations, advertising and sales data, documentation data (e.g. consultation protocol) and other data in similar categories.

The purposes of data processing are primarily based on the service specifically agreed or to be agreed upon.

b) In the context of balancing interests (Article 6 §1f GDPR)

If necessary, we process your data beyond the actual contractual agreement to protect the legitimate interests of us or third parties, for example in the following cases:

These are companies in the categories of IT services, logistics, printing services, telecommunications, consultancy and consulting.

Any further data transfer does not take place. We may only disclose information about you if required to do so by law of if you have given your consent.

Is data transferred to a third-party country or to an international organization?

Data is transmitted to third-party countries (countries outside the European Economic Area (EEA)) to the extent that this is required for the execution of your orders, required by law or you have given us your consent.

How long will your data be stored?

If necessary, we process and store your personal data for the duration of our business relationship, which also includes, for example, the initiation and processing of an order. It should be noted that our business relationship is designed with the intent to last for years.

In addition, we are subject to various storage and documentation obligations arising, among other things, from the German Commercial Code (German: Handelsgesetzbuch, HGB), the Fiscal Code (German: Abgabenordnung, AO) and tax regulations. The storage periods specified there are between seven and eleven years.

Finally, the storage period is also assessed according to the statutory limitation periods, which, for example, according to §195 of the German Civil Code (German: Bürgerliches Gesetzbuch, BGB) can generally amount up to three years, but in certain cases also up to thirty years.
