Data Protection Policy

1. Data Protection at a glance

General notes

The following notes provide a simple overview of what happens to your personal data when you visit our website. Personal data are all data with which you can be personally identified. For detailed information on the subject of data protection, please refer to our data protection declaration listed below this text.

Data collection on our website

Who is responsible for data collection on this website?

The data processing on this website is carried out by the website operator. Their contact details can be found in the imprint of this website.

How do we collect your data?

On the one hand, your data is collected when you provide it to us. This can be data that you enter into a contact form, for example. Other data is automatically collected by our IT systems when you visit the website. These are mainly technical data (e.g. Internet browser, operating system or time of the page call). This data is collected automatically as soon as you enter our website.

What do we use your data for?

Part of the data is collected to ensure that the website is provided without errors. Other data can be used to analyse your user behaviour.

What rights do you have regarding your data?

You have the right to receive information free of charge about the origin, recipient and purpose of your stored personal data at any time. You also have the right to demand the correction, blocking or deletion of this data. You can contact us at any time at the address given in the imprint for this and other questions on the subject of data protection. Furthermore, you have the right of appeal to the competent supervisory authority.

Analysis tools and third-party tools

When you visit our website, your surfing behaviour can be statistically evaluated. This happens mainly with cookies and with so-called analysis programs. The analysis of your surfing behavior is usually anonymous; the surfing behavior can therefore not be traced back to you. This analysis, insofar as it is not necessary for the operation of the website, is carried out on the basis of your consent, which you can revoke at any time. You will find detailed information on this in the following privacy policy.


2. general notes and mandatory information

Data protection

As operators of these pages we take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the legal data protection regulations and this data protection declaration. When you use this website, various personal data is collected.

Personal data is data with which you can be personally identified. This privacy policy explains what data we collect and what we use it for. It also explains how this is done and for what purpose. We would like to point out that data transmission on the Internet (e.g. communication by e-mail) can have security gaps. A complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.

Please note that if you contact us via one of the e-mail addresses listed here, your personal data transmitted to us will be stored. Your data will be used exclusively for communication with you and will not be passed on to third parties or to third countries. The legal basis for the processing of data transmitted in the course of sending an e-mail is Art. 6 Par. 1 letters a and f DSGVO. If the e-mail contact is aimed at the conclusion of a contract, the additional legal basis for processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO.

Note on the responsible body

The person responsible for data processing on this website is:

Andreas Weimann, Yasuo Kasama, Koji Kusayama
solvadis deutschland GmbH
Königsberger Strasse 1
60487 Frankfurt am Main
Phone: +49 69 57007 100
E-Mail: info@remove-this.solvadis.com

Responsible body is the natural or legal person who alone or jointly with others decides on the purposes and means of processing personal data (e.g. names, e-mail addresses, etc.).

Revocation of your consent to data processing

Many data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. You can revoke a previously given consent at any time. For this purpose, an informal communication by e-mail to us is sufficient. If you wish to withdraw your consent for the further use of cookies that are not required for the operation of the website, you can do so via the cookie settings. The legality of the data processing carried out up to the point of revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.

Right of appeal to the competent supervisory authority

In the event of violations of data protection law, the person concerned has a right of appeal to the competent supervisory authority. The competent supervisory authority in data protection matters is the data protection officer of the federal state in which our company is based. In Hessen this is

Postfach 3163
65021 Wiesbaden
Phone: +49 611 1408 0
Fax: +49 611 1408 900 / 901

Right to data portability

You have the right to have data that we process automatically on the basis of your consent or in fulfilment of a contract handed over to you or to a third party in a common, machine-readable format. If you request the direct transfer of the data to another responsible person, this will only take place as far as it is technically feasible.

SSL or TLS encryption

For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or inquiries that you send to us as the site operator, this site uses SSL or TLS encryption. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from "http://" to "https://" and by the lock symbol in your browser line. If the SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data that you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.

Information, blocking, deletion

Within the framework of the applicable legal provisions, you have the right to obtain information free of charge at any time about your stored personal data, its origin and recipients and the purpose of the data processing and, if applicable, a right to correct, block or delete this data. For this purpose, as well as for further questions on the subject of personal data, you can contact us at any time at the address given in the imprint.

Objection to advertising mails The use of contact data published within the scope of the imprint obligation for the transmission of not expressly requested advertising and information material is hereby contradicted. The operators of the pages expressly reserve the right to take legal action in the event of unsolicited sending of advertising information, such as through spam e-mails.

4. data collection on our website Cookies

The Internet pages partly use so-called cookies. Cookies do not damage your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies serve to make our offer more user-friendly, more effective and safer.

Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser. Most of the cookies we use are so-called "session cookies". They are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your terminal device until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognize your browser on your next visit. The use of cookies is based on your consent, unless they are absolutely necessary for the operation of the website. If you do not give your consent or if you revoke it subsequently, the functionality of this website may be restricted. Cookies, which are required for the electronic communication process or for the provision of certain functions you have requested (e.g. shopping basket function), are stored on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the storage of cookies for the technically error-free and optimised provision of his services. Insofar as other cookies (e.g. cookies for analysing your surfing behaviour) are stored, these are treated separately in this data protection declaration.

Server log files

The provider of the website automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:

  • Browser type and browser version
  • Operating system used
  • Referrer URL
  • Host name of the accessing computer
  • Time of the server request
  • IP address

This data is not merged with other data sources.

The basis for the data processing is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f DSGVO, i.e. our legitimate interest in the smoothest possible operation of our website.


5. analysis tools and advertising

Google Ads and Google Conversion Tracking

This website uses Google Ads. Google AdWs is an online advertising program of Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States ("Google"). In the context of Google Ads we use the so-called conversion tracking. When you click on an ad placed by Google, a cookie is set for conversion tracking. Cookies are small text files that the Internet browser stores on the user's computer. These cookies lose their validity after 30 days and are not used to personally identify users. If the user visits certain pages of this website and the cookie has not expired, Google and we may recognize that the user clicked on the ad and was redirected to that page.

Each Google Ads customer receives a different cookie. The cookies cannot be tracked on the websites of Google Ads customers. The information collected using the conversion cookie is used to generate conversion statistics for ad customers who have opted for conversion tracking. Customers are told the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a page with a conversion tracking tag. However, you will not receive information that can be used to identify users personally. If you do not wish to participate in tracking, you can opt out of this use by slightly disabling the Google Conversion Tracking cookie on your web browser under User Preferences. They are then not included in the conversion tracking statistics. The storage of "conversion cookies" is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO and therefore requires your consent, which may be revoked at any time. More information about Google AdWords and Google conversion tracking can be found in the Google Privacy Policy: www.google.de/policies/privacy/.


6. plugins and tools Google Fonts

Google Maps

We use a plugin of the internet service Google Maps on our website. Google Maps is operated by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland ("Google").

We rely on your consent to the collection of data in the context of the use of plugins. If you do not agree to the use of your data when you visit our website for the first time, the Google Maps plug-in will not be activated, so that no data transmission will take place even if you accidentally interact with a Google Maps plug-in.

If you agree to the processing of your data by the Google Maps plug-in as part of the opt-in procedure, the lawfulness of the processing of your data is based on consent in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a DSGVO, so that we use your data for the purposes of linking to Google Maps to the extent of the consent you have given. In this case, information about the use of this website and your IP address will be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and also stored on this server. Google LLC is a Privacy Shield certified company, so in addition to your consent, the transfer of data to Google is also based on the Commission's adequacy finding regarding data exchange between the EU and the US. In the context of the use of Google Maps, a contract was concluded between us and Google LLC on joint responsibility within the meaning of Art. 26 DSGVO (see: https://privacy.google.com/intl/de/businesses/mapscontrollerterms/.

)By using Google Maps on our website, information about the use of this website and your IP address is transmitted to a Google server in the USA and also stored on this server. We have no knowledge of the exact content of the transmitted data, nor of its use by Google. In this context, the Company does not authorize the linking of the data with information from other Google services or the collection of personal information unless you have configured your web and app activity settings in your Google Account settings to allow Google to merge. Under certain circumstances, Google may also pass on your data to third parties after the instruction has been given.

By giving your consent on your first visit, you agree to the collection and processing of information by Google Inc. You can find more information on the data protection regulations and terms of use for Google Maps here: https://www.google.com/intl/de_de/help/terms_maps/.
