In the following, we inform you about the type, scope and purpose of the collection and use of personal data. You can access this information at any time on our website via the link "Data protection".

Collection and storage of data for system-internal and statistical purposes

Whenever you access our website, your Internet browser automatically transmits the following data to our web server for technical purposes:
•    The current IP address of the Internet connection you are using
•    If you access our website via a link, the website from which you are visiting us
•    The web pages you visit within our website
•    The date and time of your visit
•    The operating system you are using, the name of the browser (e.g. Internet Explorer, Firefox, etc.) and the browser version

This data is stored anonymously and is used exclusively for statistical purposes (such as how often the individual pages of our website are visited) or for technical network and system monitoring in order to detect malfunctions in server operation (log files).

If you would like to receive e-mails from us with information about current offers and our company ("newsletters"), we need your e-mail address and confirmation that you are the owner of the e-mail address provided and that you agree to receive the newsletter. This data is only collected for the purpose of sending the newsletter and to document our authorization in this respect. You may revoke your subscription to the newsletter and your separate consent to the storage of your e-mail address for this purpose at any time with effect for the future. You can use the contact options below for this purpose.

Other data processing
Further data will only be collected and processed if a contractual relationship is to be established between you and SCHLÜSSEL, or if the content of such is to be formed or changed. We use the data collected for this purpose exclusively to the extent necessary for the execution of the contractual relationship.
If you send us a message using the contact form provided on our website, we store and use the data provided in this (name, postal or e-mail address, telephone number, etc.) to carry out the service you requested and for further correspondence with you.
When corresponding via e-mail or the contact form, please note that this form of communication is not secure and that the contents are not protected from unauthorised access by third parties. We recommend sending confidential messages by post.

Declaration of consent
If we wish to collect, process or transfer personal data for purposes other than those mentioned above, we will first obtain your express and voluntary consent. The use of our website will not be dependent on you granting your consent, insofar as this is possible from a legal and technical perspective.
Once you have given your consent to the further use of your personal data, you can revoke it at any time with effect for the future. Please address the revocation to us at:

Forwarding personal data to third parties
We use your personal data exclusively for our own purposes as described above. Your data will not be passed on to third parties.
When we engage third parties to process data to support our business operations, they must agree to comply with our privacy standards and give us the right to monitor compliance with those standards and legal requirements. In this case, SCHLÜSSEL remains legally responsible for compliance with the statutory data protection regulations ("order data processing").

Security measures
SCHLÜSSEL has taken specific security measures from an organizational and technical perspective to protect your personal data. The security measures are state-of-the-art and are continuously adapted to new technological developments.

Storage and deletion of personal data
All of your personal data stored by us will be deleted immediately and irretrievably as soon as they are no longer required for the purposes for which they were collected – unless we are legally required to store them. If we are obliged to store the data, it will be irretrievably deleted upon expiry of the legally specified storage periods.

In some cases, so-called "cookies" may be used on our websites. These are small text files that are transferred from our web server to your workstation computer. Cookies are used to recognize the workstation computer used during the next visit and to inform the server when you last visited which pages of our homepage. These cookies do not contain any personal data and are not linked with other personal data stored by us. Cookies can only identify the workstation computer used, not the person using it.
Nevertheless, if you do not wish to accept cookies, please consult your browser's help function to find out how to deactivate the cookie function. This does not restrict your ability to use our website.

Contact person, right to information and correction
Please feel free to contact us at any time if you have any further questions or comments about our data protection principles.
You are also entitled to information at any time as to whether and which personal data we have stored about you. At your request, the information can also be provided electronically.
