Deletion or blocking of data
In order to adhere to the principles of data avoidance and data economy, we only store your personal data for as long as is necessary to achieve the purposes stated here, or as provided for in the various storage periods provided for by law.

Accessing our website
When you access our website, general information is collected (server log files) including the IP address, the type of web browser, the operating system used, the domain name of your Internet service provider and similar information. This is exclusively information which does not allow any conclusions to be drawn about your person.
This information is technically necessary in order to transmit the contents of our website that you have accessed to your computer. We also process this data to identify and track abuse. Our legitimate interest in data processing is to ensure the proper functioning of our website and the transactions conducted on it.
The processing of your personal data is based on our legitimate interest from the aforementioned purposes for data collection. We do not use your data to draw conclusions about you personally. The recipients of the data are only the responsible body and, if applicable, the contract processor.
Anonymous information of this kind may be statistically evaluated by us in order to optimize our Internet presence and the technology behind it.
Like many other websites, we also use so-called “cookies”, i.e. small text files that are transferred from a web server to your computer. This automatically provides us with certain data such as IP address, browser used, operating system and your connection to the Internet.
Cookies cannot be used to start programs or to transmit viruses to a computer. Based on the information contained in cookies, we can make navigation easier for you and enable the correct display of our web pages.
Under no circumstances will the data we collect be passed on to third parties or linked to personal data without your consent.
Registration on our website
When registering for the use of our personalized services (especially the domain cloud.moticon.de) some personal data are collected, such as name, address, contact and communication data such as telephone number and e-mail address. If you are registered with us, you can access content and services that we only offer to registered users. Registered users may, at any time, request the deletion of the provided data, and the correction of incorrect data, unless prohibited by legal obligations concerning storage. You may also request information about the stored personal data at any time. Any such requests can be addressed to the data safety officer (see contact details in this data protection statement).
We use state-of-the-art encryption methods (SSL) to protect the security of your data during transmission.
To send our newsletter to you, we need an email address from you. A verification of the provided email address is necessary, and the receipt of the newsletter is to be consented to by you. Additional data is not collected or is voluntary. The data will only be used for sending the newsletter.
The data provided when registering for the newsletter will be processed exclusively on the basis of your consent. You can revoke your consent at any time. An informal notification by email is sufficient for the revocation. The legality of already carried out data processing remains unaffected by the revocation.
The data provided when registering for the newsletter will be deleted in the event of revocation. In the event that the same data have been transmitted to us by other means and for other purposes, these data will remain with us.
If you contact us regarding any questions by email or contact form, this is considered as your voluntary consent for us contacting you. A valid email address is required for this purpose. This is used to assign the request and then reply to it. The specification of further data is optional. The information you provide will be stored for the purpose of processing your inquiry and for possible follow-up questions. After your request has been processed, personal data will be deleted.
We embed YouTube videos on some of our websites. YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA is the operator of the corresponding plug-ins. When you visit a page with the YouTube plugin, a connection to YouTube servers is established. YouTube is informed which pages you visit. If you are logged into your YouTube account, YouTube can associate your surfing behavior with you personally. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account beforehand.
If you have deactivated the storage of cookies for the Google ad program, you will not have to reckon with such cookies when watching YouTube videos either. YouTube also stores non-personal usage information in other cookies. If you want to prevent this, you must block the saving of cookies in your browser.
Further information on data protection at YouTube can be found in the provider’s data protection statement at: https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/
