Thank you for visiting our website. We are delighted that you are interested in our company and our products / services. We take protecting your personal data very seriously, and we want you to feel secure with regard to the information you give us when you visit our website. For us, complying with German data security law is a matter of course.
We want you to know what data we collect at Promipool while you are visiting our website, when we collect it and how we use this information. We have taken technical and organisational measures that ensure that data protection regulations are observed by us and by any service providers we work together with.
Personal data is information about your identity. This includes e.g. your name, your address and telephone number, and your email address. You donâ€™t have to divulge personal information in order to be able to use our internet site. But in some cases we need your name and address, and further information so that we can provide you with the services you require.
The same applies when we want to give you information material or supply you with goods you have ordered, or when we need to answer your questions. We will always tell you when this is necessary. Also, we only store or process data that you have provided us with either voluntarily or automatically.
If you use one of our services, we usually only take the data that is necessary to provide you with the service you require. We may ask you for further information, but this is voluntary. Whenever we process personal data, we do it to provide you with the service you required or to fulfil our legitimate commercial interests.
As a rule, we only use the personal data you have provided us with to answer your queries, process your orders, or to provide you with access to specific information or offers. We, or one of the service providers we work with, may also want to use this information to provide you with information about our services, or about products that may interest you. We may also use it for online surveys to help us improve customer service.
Naturally, we respect your wishes if you prefer not to provide us with additional information for customer services (especially if this is for direct marketing or market research purposes). We never give personal information to third parties or use it for other purposes.
The personal information you provided us with will only be used for the specific purpose requested by you. We will not give your details to third parties without your permission.
Personal data is only shared with public authorities and government institutions when this is stipulated by law, or when we are forced to do so by a court of law. Our staff and any service providers we work with are bound to confidentiality and to observing the regulations of the Federal German Data Protection laws.
When you visit our website, we store certain information for administration and technical reasons. These are: the name of the site visited, the browser and operation system used, the date and time of access, the search engine used, the name and IP address of downloaded files.
This data remains anonymous and it is used solely for statistical purposes and to improve our website and online services. This anonymous data is stored separately from personal data on secure systems and allows no inference on individual persons. This means that your personal details are protected at all times.
If you visit our website, we might store information on your computer in the form of cookies. Cookies are small files that are sent from an internet server to your browser and stored on your computerâ€™s hard drive. Only the internet protocol address is stored in this process, and no personal data is involved. The information stored on cookies means you will be automatically recognised next time you use our website, so you will find our site easier to navigate. For example, cookies enable us to adapt our website to your interests or to store your password, so you donâ€™t have to enter it again.
You can, of course, visit our website without using cookies. If you donâ€™t want us to recognise your computer next time you visit us, you can prevent cookies from being stored simply by setting your browser to â€œdo not accept cookies.â€ Find out how to do this in your browserâ€™s operating instructions.

Our website uses social plugins (â€œpluginsâ€) provided by the social network facebook.com, operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Avenue, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (â€œFacebookâ€). The plugins are identifiable by a Facebook logo (white letter f on blue background or a thumb up icon) or the notice â€œFacebook Social Pluginâ€. For a full list of all social Plugins please seehttp://developers.facebook.com/plugins.
When you visit a page of our website that contains a social plugin, your browser establishes a direct connection to Facebook servers. Facebook directly transfers the plugin content to your browser which embeds the latter into the website, enabling Facebook to receive information about your having accessed the respective page of our website. Thus we have no influence on the data gathered by the plugin and inform you according to our state of knowledge:
The embedded plugins provide Facebook with the information that you have accessed the corresponding page of our website. If you are logged into Facebook, your visit can be assigned to your Facebook account. If you interact with the plugins, for example by clicking â€œLikeâ€, or entering a comment, the corresponding information is transmitted from your browser directly to Facebook and stored by it. Even if you are not logged into Facebook, there is possibility that the plugins transmits your IP-address to Facebook.
If you are a Facebook member and do not want Facebook to connect the data concerning your visit to our website with your member data already stored by Facebook, please log off Facebook before entering our website. Further you can block Facebook social Plugins by using add-ons for your browser, like the â€œFacebook Blockerâ€œ.
Children under the age of 18 should not pass any information on to us without the permission of their parents or guardians. We never request personal data from children or under-aged persons. We do not collect this and do not pass it on to third parties.
We have put technical and administrative safety measures in place in order to protect your personal data against loss, destruction, manipulation and unauthorised access. All our employees and service providers are bound by the Federal Data Protection regulations.
