Cancellation / Deletion of Personal Data

If you have given us personal data, you can delete it at any time. Data for billing and accounting purposes are not affected by a cancellation / revocation or deletion.

Personal data which have been communicated to us through our website will only be stored until the purpose is fulfilled, for which they were entrusted to us. As far as trade and tax retention periods are observed, the storage time may be given to data up to 10 years.

You can receive free information about all personal information that we hold about you. 

 

Communication or Utilization Related Information

When you access our website via a telecommunication service provider, technical means are used to automatically generate communication related data (e.g. Internet protocol addresses), respectively, utilization information (e.g. data as to when you initiated and how long a sitting lasted, as well as information about the telecommunication service provider you employed). This could possibly lead to conclusions being drawn about with respect to your private data. To the extent that your communication, respectively, utilization related data absolutely needs to be acquired, processed or used, such procedures are subject to the statutory provisions in place for the protection of data privacy.

 

Non-individual Automatically Acquired Data

We make use of this information to determine how attractive our website is and to improve its performance and content.

Links to other Websites

As a service provider in keeping with § 3 no. 1, § 8 (1) of the TDG (Teledienstegesetzes =teleservice law), dacore Datenbanksysteme AG is responsible, in accordance with the general laws, for the information which it makes available for use.

Differentiation must be made between our own content and the content made available by other providers to which our content is linked. The content conveyed or stored via links to other providers is third party information and not the content property of dacore Datenbanksysteme AG.

Nonetheless, the links are always dynamic references. Dacore always checks third party content for any possible civil liable or criminally liable infringements when first establishing such links. In accordance with the TDG, however, dacore as a service provider is not responsible for monitoring the information it forwards or stores or for looking into circumstances that might be indicative of possible illegal activities (§ 8 (2) TDG). Reference to a given offer is only then suspended when it has been established or a third party has pointed out that a concrete offer to which a link has been set up could provoke civil or criminal liability.
