The Otherland Group GmbH (hereinafter called 'The Otherland Group’) is pleased that you have visited our website and are interested in our company, products and services. It is important to us to protect your personal data during handling throughout the entire business process. We want you to feel secure when you visit our Internet pages.
In the following, we explain what information The Otherland Group collects when you visit our website and how this information is used.
Personal data is specific information about personal or factual characteristics relating to a certain natural person or a natural person who can be specified. This includes information such as your real name, address, telephone number and date of birth. Information which cannot be directly linked to your real identity - such as favourite websites or number of users of a site - is not considered personal data.
Collection and processing of personal data
When you visit our web pages, our web servers always temporarily save for security purposes the connection data of the computer connecting to our site, a list of the web pages that you visit within our site, the date and duration of your visit, the identification data of the type of browser and operation system used as well as the website through which you linked to our site. Additional personal information such as your name, address, telephone number or e-mail address is not collected unless you provide this data voluntarily, e.g. as part of a registration, survey, competition, fulfilment of contract or an information request.
Utilisation and passing on of personal data
We use the personal data which you have made available to us exclusively for technical administration of the web pages and to fulfil your wishes and requests - thus primarily for fulfilment of a contract concluded with you or to answer your request.
Only when you have previously granted your approval or - if so stipulated by legal regulations - have not raised an objection do we also use this data for product-related surveys and marketing purposes.
The Otherland Group does not share, sell, transfer or otherwise disseminate your personal data to third parties, unless this is required for the purpose of the contract or unless you have given express consent to do so. For instance, it may be necessary to pass on your address and order data to our contractors when you order products.
In some cases we would like to contact you in order to provide you with information about our offers, news, products and services. When registering on our web pages, we therefore kindly request that you indicate whether or not you would like to receive direct advertising material from us. You always will have the option of denying such requests for a permission to contact you.
We will not contact you without such an indication of your intent to be contacted by us.
Our web pages might use short-lived cookies, to store data needed for technical guidance of the session. This data is not personal in nature and is deleted when you close your browser.
If we should need to save personal data on a cookie in exceptional cases, we will request your express permission to do so in advance.
We would furthermore like to point out that browsers usually offer functions for administration of cookies.
The Otherland Group takes all of the necessary technical and organisational security measures to protect your personal data from being lost or misused. For instance, your data is saved in a secure operating environment which is not accessible to the public. In certain cases, your personal data is encrypted by Secure Socket Layer technology (SSL) during transmission. This means that an approved encryption procedure is used for communication between your computer our servers if your browser supports SSL.
Should you wish to contact The Otherland Group by e-mail, we would like to point out that the confidentiality of the information sent cannot be guaranteed. The contents of e-mail messages can be read by third parties. We therefore recommend you send us confidential information only by post.
Right to information
Upon written request, we will inform you what personal data about you (e.g. name, address) we have collected and currently stored.
