Privacy Policy

VIB GmbH takes the protection of personal data very seriously. We want you to know when we store certain data and how we use it. As a company incorporated under private law, we are subject to the terms of the German Federal Data Protection Act (Bundesdatenschutzgesetz, BDSG). In both technical and organisational terms, we have taken action to ensure that the regulations on data protection are observed by us and also by our external service providers.

Data storage

Personal data is information which can be used to learn your identity and includes information like your real name, address, postal address and telephone number. It does not include information which cannot be directly connected with your real identity (such as favorite websites or number of users of a site).
You can use our online programs without revealing your identity.
We store your data on specially protected servers in Germany. Access is only granted to a few authorised people who handle the technical, commercial or editorial management of these servers.
In association with your access to our website, data is stored for back-up purposes and could possibly lead to identification (such as IP address, date, time and pages viewed). This data is not put to any person-related use. The right to make statistical evaluations based on depersonalised data records is reserved.

Statistical analyses of user behaviour

This website AWStats technology (http://awstats.sourceforge.net/) to collect data on visitor behavior. The data is collected anonymously for use in marketing and optimization. All visitor data is saved using an anonymous user ID and can be used to aggregate a usage profile. Cookies may be used for this purpose. Cookies are small text files that are stored in the visitor’s local browser cache. It is possible to use these cookies to recognize a visitor’s browser. The data collected by the AWStats technology will not be used to determine the personal identity of a website visitor, and will not be compiled with personal data relating to the person referred to by the pseudonym, unless agreed to separately by the person concerned.

These cookies help to establish the frequency of use and the number of users of our website. We do not use cookies to acquire any personal data.
In some sections of our online programmes, we use cookies to implement user functions. You are informed accordingly when this is the case. On certain pages, advertisements by companies or agencies are supplied directly and here cookies may possibly be used without us being able to alert you beforehand.
Our website can also be used without cookies. Most browsers are set to automatically accept cookies. However, you can deactivate cookie storage or set your browser to inform you as soon as cookies are sent.

Passing on personal information to third parties

When you place feedback or product orders, we only use your personal information within VIB GmbH and affiliated authorities.
If data is passed on to service providers as part of order data processing, the latter are subject to the BDSG and other legal regulations and are contractually bound by the privacy policy of VIB GmbH. What is more, we will not give your personal data to third parties without your express consent.
We will pass your data on to entities entitled to collect information if we have an obligation to do so by law or under a court order.

You have the right to revoke at any time any personal data with which you have supplied us. Data for accounting purposes is not affected by termination or, respectively, revocation.
We will respond to reasonable requests to review your personal data and to correct, amend or delete any inaccuracies.

To the extent that there is a compelling necessity, the collection, processing and use of your communications or utilization data will occur and will be performed in accordance with the applicable data privacy protection legal framework.
