Thank you for visiting our website. In the following we would like to inform you about the handling of your data according to Art. 13 of the German Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO).
Responsible for the data collection and processing described below is the body named in https://www.melchers.de/impressum.
STORAGE OF THE IP ADDRESS
We store the IP address transmitted by your web browser strictly for the intended purpose for a maximum period of seven days, in the interest of being able to detect, limit and eliminate attacks on our websites. After this period, we delete or anonymise the IP address. The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f DSGVO.
When you visit our websites, so-called usage data is temporarily stored on our web server as a log for statistical purposes in order to improve the quality of our websites. This data record consists of- the page from which the file was requested,
- the name of the file,
- the date and time of the request,
- the amount of data transferred,
- the access status (file transferred, file not found),
- the description of the type of web browser used,
- the IP address of the requesting computer, which is shortened so that a personal reference can no longer be established.
The aforementioned log data is only stored anonymously.
We transfer your data within the scope of order processing pursuant to Art. 28 DSGVO to service providers who support us in the operation of our websites and the associated processes. Our service providers are strictly bound by instructions to us and are contractually obligated accordingly. We use the following service providers:
Hosting: PTS Group AG
Cuxhavener Straße 10 a
Analytics: Google Analytics, USA
In the case of Google Analytics (USA), an appropriate level of data protection follows from the corresponding participation in the Privacy Shield Agreement (Art. 45 para. 1 DSGVO).
We use permanent cookies on our websites. The processing is based on Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f DSGVO and in the interest of optimising or enabling user guidance and adapting the presentation of our website.
The information generated by the cookie about your use of these web pages is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, as we have activated IP anonymisation on our websites, your IP address will be shortened by Google beforehand within member states of the European Union. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA (an adequate level of data protection exists according to Art. 45 (1) DSGVO through Google's participation in the Privacy Shield) and only shortened there. We have also concluded an order processing agreement with Google Inc (USA) in accordance with Art. 28 DSGVO. Accordingly, Google will use all information strictly for the purpose of evaluating the use of our websites for us and compiling reports on website activity.
You can object to the processing at any time. Please use one of the following options to do so:
In addition, you can prevent the collection of the data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the websites (incl. your IP address) to Google as well as the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available under the following link (http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de).

An opt-out cookie will be set that permanently prevents future collection of your data when visiting these websites.
In order to protect your data from unwanted access as comprehensively as possible, we take technical and organisational measures. We use an encryption procedure on our pages. Your data is transferred from your computer to our server and vice versa via the Internet using TLS encryption. You can recognise this by the fact that the lock symbol is closed in the status bar of your browser and the address line begins with https://.
EMBEDDED YOUTUBE VIDEOS
We embed YouTube videos on some sub-pages of our website. Calling up these sub-pages results in YouTube content being reloaded. In this context, YouTube also receives your IP address, which is technically required to retrieve the content. We have no influence on the further processing by YouTube. However, when embedding the videos, we have made sure to activate the extended data protection mode offered by YouTube.
We use Google Maps to display maps and to create directions. Google Maps is operated by Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
If you use the Google Maps map, e.g. by clicking on our locations listed there, we do not collect any data from you. However, as a result of using Google Maps, information about your use (in particular the IP address of your computer) may, to our knowledge, be transmitted to a Google LLC server in the USA and stored there. The processing of personal data using technically necessary cookies and your IP address is based on the legal basis of Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. f DSGVO in the interest of designing our website as optimally as possible for you. We have no influence on the further processing of data by Google LLC.
If you do not agree to the data processing by Google LLC, please refrain from using the map or deactivate the Java Script function in your browser to obtain only a restricted view.
YOUR RIGHTS AS A USER
When processing your personal data, the GDPR grants you certain rights as a website user:
1. right of access (Art. 15 DSGVO):
You have the right to request confirmation as to whether personal data concerning you is being processed; if this is the case, you have the right to be informed about this personal data and to receive the information listed in detail in Art. 15 DSGVO.
2. right to rectification and erasure (Art. 16 and 17 GDPR):
You have the right to request without undue delay the rectification of any inaccurate personal data concerning you and, where applicable, the completion of any incomplete personal data.
You also have the right to request that personal data concerning you be deleted without undue delay, provided that one of the reasons listed in detail in Article 17 of the GDPR applies, e.g. if the data is no longer needed for the purposes pursued.
3. right to restriction of processing (Art. 18 DSGVO):
You have the right to request the restriction of processing if one of the conditions listed in Art. 18 DSGVO applies, e.g. if you have objected to the processing pursuant to Art. 21 DSGVO or for the duration of any review as to whether our legitimate interests override your interests as a data subject.
4. right to data portability (Art. 20 DSGVO):
In certain cases, which are detailed in Art. 20 DSGVO, you have the right to receive the personal data concerning you in a structured, common and machine-readable format or to request the transfer of this data to a third party.

If data is collected on the basis of Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. f DSGVO (data processing for the protection of legitimate interests), you have the right to object to the processing at any time for reasons arising from your particular situation. We will then no longer process the personal data unless there are demonstrably compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
6. right of complaint to a supervisory authority
Pursuant to Art. 77 DSGVO, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority if you are of the opinion that the processing of data concerning you violates data protection provisions.
