Data Privacy Policy

1 INTRODUCTION AND GENERAL PROVISIONS

Thank you very much for your interest in our company. Data privacy is of utmost importance for the management of Gestüt Sprehe GmbH. It is essentially possible to use the web pages of Gestüt Sprehe GmbH without giving any personal data. Should website visitors wish to make use of particular services of our company via our website, it could, however, be necessary to process personal data. Should the processing of personal data be necessary, and should no legal basis exist for such processing, we will generally obtain the consent of the data subject.

The processing of personal data, for example the name, address, e-mail address or telephone number of a data subject, is always carried out in line with the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and in conformity with the applicable country-specific data protection regulations. By means of this data privacy statement, our company would like to inform the public on the nature, scope and purpose of the personal data gathered, used and processed by us. Furthermore, with the aid of this data privacy statement website users are given an explanation concerning the rights which they are entitled to assert.

Gestüt Sprehe GmbH has, as controller for the processing, implemented various technical and organisational measures in order to ensure that any personal data processed via this website is protected as comprehensively as possible.

2      NOTES ON GATHERING DATA

2.1    Cookies

Numerous websites and servers use cookies. Many cookies contain a so-called “cookie ID”. A cookie ID is a unique identifier of the cookie. It consists of a character string, through which web pages and servers can be allocated to the specific web browser where the cookie has been saved. This makes it possible for the web pages and servers visited to distinguish the individual browser of the website visitor from other web browsers containing other cookies. A particular web browser can be recognised again and identified via the unique cookie ID.

Through the use of cookies, Gestüt Sprehe GmbH can provide the users of this website with user-friendly services, which would not be possible without placing the cookie.

Website users can at any time prevent cookies from being placed by our website by means of a corresponding setting of the web browser used, and thus permanently revoke the placing of cookies. Furthermore, any cookies already placed can be deleted via a web browser or other software at any time. This is possible in any common web browser. Should the website visitor deactivate the placing of cookies in the web browser used, under certain circumstances not all functions of our website can be used in full.
