Analysis tools and third-party tools
Please note that data transmission over the internet (e.g. communication via email) may have security gaps. Complete protection of the data from access by third parties is not possible.
The responsible entity for data processing on this website is:
Falcon Illumination MV GmbH & Co. KG
In den Scheibigswiesen 8
Phone: +49 7132 99169-0
E-Mail: info [at] falconillumination [dot] de
The responsible entity is the natural or legal person who, alone or together with others, decides on the purposes and means of processing personal data (e.g., names, email addresses, etc.).
Many data processing operations are only possible with your explicit consent. You can revoke an already granted consent at any time. This can be done with a informal message via email to us. The legality of the data processing carried out until the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
In the event of data protection violations, the affected person has a right of complaint 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 has its headquarters. A list of data protection officers and their contact details can be found at the following link: https://www.bfdi.bund.de/DE/Infothek/Anschriften_Links/anschriften_links-node.html.
You have the right to receive data that we process on the basis of your consent or in fulfillment of a contract, in a commonly used, machine-readable format. If you request the direct transfer of data to another responsible party, this will only be possible if technically feasible.
For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as requests you send to us as site operators, this page uses SSL or TLS encryption. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the change from "http://" to "https://" in the browsers address bar and by the lock symbol in your browser line.
If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
You have the right, under the applicable legal provisions, at any time to request information about your stored personal data, its origin and recipients, and the purpose of the data processing and, if necessary, the right to correct, block or delete this data. You can contact us at any time at the address given in the Imprint for this and for further questions on the subject of personal data.
Data will not be merged with other data sources.
The basis for data processing is Art. 6 (1) lit. b of the GDPR, which allows for the processing of data for the purpose of fulfilling a contract or pre-contractual measures.
The retention of user and event data in Google Analytics has been set to the currently (as of May 2018) shortest period of 14 months.
If you submit inquiries to us via the contact form, your information from the inquiry form, including the contact information you provided there, will be stored with us for the purpose of processing the inquiry and for any follow-up questions. We will not disclose this information without your consent.
Processing of the data entered into the contact form is therefore based solely on your consent (Art. 6 (1) lit. a of the GDPR). You may revoke this consent at any time by sending a simple message by email to us. The legality of the data processing operations performed up until revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
The data you enter into the contact form will remain with us until you request us to delete it, revoke your consent to storage, or the purpose for storing the data no longer exists (e.g. after processing your inquiry). Mandatory legal provisions, in particular retention periods, remain unaffected.
You cannot currently register with us on our website - but if it becomes possible in the future, the procedure will be as follows: We will only use the data entered for the purpose of using the respective offer or service for which you have registered. The mandatory information required during registration must be completely provided. Otherwise, we will reject the registration.
For important changes, such as changes in the scope of the offer or technically necessary changes, we will use the email address provided during registration to inform you in this way.
The processing of the data entered during registration is based on your consent (Art. 6 (1) lit. a of the GDPR). You may revoke a consent given at any time by sending a simple message by email to us. The legality of the data processing already performed remains unaffected by the revocation.
The data collected during registration will be stored by us as long as you are registered on our website and will then be deleted. Legal retention periods remain unaffected.
As of 05.2018, registration through Facebook Connect is not possible on our website, but if it becomes possible, the following will apply:
These data are used for setting up, providing and personalizing your account.
The commenting function is not currently possible with us, but if it is, it applies as follows:
In addition to your comment, information such as the time of creation of the comment, your email address and, if you do not post anonymously, the username you choose will be stored for the commenting function on this page.
Storage of IP address
Our commenting function stores the IP addresses of users who write comments. Since we do not review comments on our page before activation, we need this information to take action in case of violations such as insults or propaganda against the author.
Duration of storage of comments
The comments and the related data (e.g. IP address) will be stored and remain on our website until the commented content is completely deleted or the comments have to be deleted for legal reasons (e.g. insulting comments).
The storage of comments is based on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR). You can revoke a consent given by you at any time. This is done by a simple message by email to us. The legality of the data processing already carried out remains unaffected by the revocation.
This website uses functions of the web analysis service Google Analytics. The provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
Google Analytics uses so-called "cookies". These are text files that are stored on your computer and allow an analysis of your website usage. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there.
The storage of Google Analytics cookies is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analyzing user behavior in order to optimize both its web offering and its advertising.
We have activated the IP anonymization function on this website. This will cause your IP address to be shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or other states party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area before being transmitted to the USA. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide other services related to website and internet usage to the website operator. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other data from Google.
You can prevent the storage of cookies by setting your browser software accordingly; however, we would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all the functions of this website to their full extent. You can also prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to your website usage (including your IP address) by Google and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.
Order data processing
We have entered into a contract with Google for order data processing and fully implement the strict requirements of German data protection authorities in the use of Google Analytics.
Demographic characteristics in Google Analytics
This website uses the "demographic characteristics" feature of Google Analytics. This allows reports to be created that contain statements about the age, gender, and interests of the page visitors. This data is derived from Googles interest-based advertising and from visitor data from third parties. This data cannot be assigned to a specific person. You can disable this feature at any time through the display settings in your Google account or generally prohibit the collection of your data by Google Analytics as shown in the "Objection to data collection" section.
Google AdWords and Google Conversion Tracking
This website uses Google AdWords. AdWords is an online advertising program of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States ("Google").
As part of Google AdWords, we use so-called Conversion Tracking. If you click on an ad placed by Google, a cookie for conversion tracking is set. Cookies are small text files that the internet browser stores on the users computer. These cookies become invalid after 30 days and do not personally identify the user. If the user visits certain pages of this website and the cookie has not expired, Google and we can detect that the user clicked on the ad and was redirected to this page.
Each Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. The cookies cannot be tracked across websites of AdWords customers. The information obtained through the conversion cookie is used to create conversion statistics for AdWords customers who have chosen conversion tracking. The customers learn the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a page with a conversion tracking tag. However, they do not receive information that allows users to be personally identified. If you do not wish to participate in tracking, you can object to this use by easily deactivating the Google Conversion Tracking cookie through your internet browser under user settings. You will then not be included in the conversion tracking statistics.
The storage of "conversion cookies" is based on Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analyzing user behavior to optimize both its web offerings and advertising.
You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and only allow cookies in individual cases or generally exclude their acceptance, and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when the browser is closed. Disabling cookies may restrict the functionality of this website.
We are currently not using Google reCAPTCHA, but if this changes, the following applies: We use "Google reCAPTCHA" (hereinafter "reCAPTCHA") on our websites. The provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA ("Google").
reCAPTCHA is used to verify whether the data entered on our websites (e.g. in a contact form) is done by a human or by an automated program. To do this, reCAPTCHA analyzes the behavior of the website visitor based on various features. This analysis starts automatically as soon as the website visitor enters the website. reCAPTCHA evaluates various information for the analysis (e.g. IP address, length of time the website visitor spends on the website or mouse movements made by the user). The data collected during the analysis is forwarded to Google.
The reCAPTCHA analysis runs completely in the background. Website visitors are not informed that an analysis is taking place.
The data processing is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in protecting its web offerings from abusive automated exploitation and from SPAM.
If you wish to receive the newsletter offered on the website, we require your email address and information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the specified email address and agree to receive the newsletter. No further data is collected, or only on a voluntary basis. This data is used exclusively for the purpose of sending the requested information and will not be disclosed to third parties.
The processing of the data entered into the newsletter registration form is based solely on your consent (Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR). You may revoke your consent for the storage of the data, email address and its use for the purpose of sending the newsletter at any time, for example, by using the "unsubscribe" link in the newsletter. The legality of the data processing carried out so far remains unaffected by the revocation.
The data you have provided for the purpose of subscribing to the newsletter will be stored by us until you unsubscribe from the newsletter and deleted after you cancel the newsletter. Data stored for other purposes (e.g. email addresses for the members area) will remain unaffected by this.
Currently, we do not use YouTube, but if that changes, the following applies: Our website uses plugins from YouTube, which is operated by Google. The operator of the pages is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA.
When you visit one of our pages equipped with a YouTube plugin, a connection to the YouTube servers is established. The YouTube server is then informed which of our pages you have visited.
If you are logged in to your YouTube account, you allow YouTube to directly associate your browsing behavior with your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account.
The use of YouTube is in the interest of a visually appealing representation of our online offers. This constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.
Our website uses so-called web fonts provided by Google to achieve a uniform presentation of fonts. When a page is called up, your browser loads the required web fonts into your browser cache in order to display texts and fonts correctly.
To do this, your browser must establish a connection to the servers of Google. This gives Google knowledge that our website has been accessed via your IP address. The use of Google Web Fonts takes place in the interest of a uniform and appealing representation of our online offerings, which constitutes a legitimate interest under Article 6, Para. 1 lit. f GDPR.
If your browser does not support web fonts, a standard font from your computer will be used.
This site uses the Google Maps mapping service via an API. The provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
To use the functions of Google Maps, it is necessary to store your IP address. This information is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. The provider of this site has no influence on this data transfer.
The use of Google Maps is in the interest of an attractive representation of our online offerings and an easy findability of the places indicated on our website. This constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.
