Provider and responsible body within the meaning of the Data Protection Act
Theo Sommer GmbH
With this data protection declaration, users receive information about the type, scope and purpose of the collection and use of their data by the responsible provider. The legal framework for data protection is the Basic Data Protection Ordinance (DSGVO).
Integration of third-party services and content
Our offer may include content, services and performances of other providers. These include maps provided by Google Maps, videos from YouTube and graphics and images from other websites. In order for this data to be called up and displayed in the user's browser, the transmission of the IP address is absolutely necessary. The providers (hereinafter referred to as "third-party providers") thus perceive the IP address of the respective user.
Although we make every effort to use only third-party providers who only need the IP address to deliver content, we have no influence on whether the IP address may be stored. In this case, this process is used for statistical purposes, among other things. If we have knowledge that the IP address is stored, we point this out to our users.
This website uses so-called cookies. These are text files that are stored on your computer from the server. They contain information about the browser, the IP address, the operating system and the Internet connection. This data will not be passed on to third parties or linked to personal data without your consent.
Cookies have two main functions. They help us to make it easier for you to navigate through our website and to display it correctly. They are not used to infiltrate viruses or start programs.
Users have the possibility to access our website without cookies. To do this, the corresponding settings must be changed in the browser. Please inform yourself about the help function of your browser, how cookies are deactivated. However, we would like to point out that some functions of this website may be impaired and the user comfort may be restricted.
This website uses the online advertising program "Google AdWords" and as part of that the conversion tracking. Google Adwords sets a cookie on your computer if you have reached our website via a Google ad. These cookies lose their validity after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. If the user visits certain pages of our website and the cookie has not expired yet, we and Google may recognize that the user clicked on the ad and was redirected to this page. Each Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. Cookies can not be tracked through the websites of advertisers.
The information collected using the conversion cookie is used to generate conversion statistics for AdWords customers who have opted for conversion tracking. Customers see 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 any information that personally identifies users.
Facebook/Instagram/YouTube Social Plug-in
We integrate plug-ins of the social networks Facebook, Instagram and YouTube on our websites. You will recognize the plug-ins - an overview can be found here, for example: developers.facebook.com/docs/Plug-ins/ - on the Like button (like) or on the Facebook, Instagram or YouTube logo.
If you call one of our websites with Facebook/Instagram/YouTube Plug-in, a direct connection with Facebook/Instagram/YouTube is established. We have no influence on the type and scope of data collected, stored and processed by Facebook/Instagram/YouTube. We can only inform you according to our level of knowledge.
Facebook / Instagram / YouTube will be informed via the plug-in that you have accessed the corresponding website of our offer. This also applies to users who are not registered on Facebook / Instagram / YouTube. In this case, there is the possibility that Facebook / Instagram / YouTube stores the IP address.
If you are a member of Facebook / Instagram / YouTube and logged in, the call of a website with Facebook / Instagram / YouTube plug-in can be clearly assigned to your user account on Facebook / Instagram / YouTube. In addition, the plug-ins transmit all interactions, for example, if you use the Like button or leave a comment.
To prevent Facebook/Instagram/YouTube from storing information about you, please log out of Facebook/Instagram/YouTube before visiting our websites. You can also block the plug-ins with browser add-ons (e.g. "Facebook Blocker").
We store personal data in accordance with the principles of data avoidance and data economy only as long as it is required or prescribed by law (legal storage period). If the purpose of the information collected no longer applies or if the storage period ends, we block or delete the data.
Your rights to information, correction, blocking, deletion and objection according to § 15 ff. (BDSG)
You have the right, upon request and free of charge, to request information about the personal data stored by us and/or to request correction, blocking or deletion. Exceptions: This is the prescribed data storage for business transactions or the data is subject to the legal obligation to store. For these purposes please contact us

To be able to consider a data lock at any time, it is necessary to keep the data in a lock file for control purposes. If there is no legal archiving obligation, you can also request the deletion of the data. Otherwise we block the data if you wish.
