The protection of your data is our concern

The protection of your personal privacy when processing personal data, and the security of all business information is extremely important to us, and we incorporate it in our business processes. We process the personal data that is collected when you visit our web pages in confidentiality and only in accordance with the provisions of the law.

Collecting and processing personal data

Personal data is only stored if you have given it to us voluntarily for a specific purpose for which you have released it, e.g., to be contacted by IDS, or in order to execute a contract. In addition, the following information is collected in the course of a visit to our web pages:

IP address, date and time, the web page from where the visit was initiated and the pages visited.

You have the opportunity to apply for advertised vacancies online on our web page. The personal data you communicate to us in this way is stored and processed exclusively for the application process.

Inventory data and usage data is forwarded to third parties (e.g., payment service providers or vicarious agents) within the limits of the provisions of the law and only to the extent that such is necessary in order for us to provide and charge for our services. This refers particularly to payment services (PayPal, Giropay, etc.), which are used to manage the payment of your purchases from us. The privacy policies of the respective payment service providers apply.

Data security

We have implemented technical and organizational measures to safeguard your personal data against loss, destruction, manipulation and unauthorized access. All of our employees and all third parties involved with data processing are bound to observe the German Federal Data Protection Act and to handle personal data confidentially. If personal data is collected and processed via our website, the information is transmitted in encrypted form to prevent it from being misused by third parties. Our backup measures are constantly being revised to keep pace with technological advances.

Videos from the provider YouTube are incorporated in our web page. YouTube is operated by YouTube LLC, 901 Cherry Avenue, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA.

YouTube uses cookies for data collection and statistical analysis. These statistics help YouTube to analyze how often a video has been viewed, whether the video was viewed on YouTube, or on which websites the video has been embedded.

In order to protect your personal privacy, we only use embedded YouTube videos in an extended data protection mode. This means that YouTube does not store any cookies for a user who views a website with an embedded YouTube video but does not click on the video to play it. If the video is played, YouTube may store cookies on the user's computer, but no personal information is stored when embedded videos are played.
