Data protection

Data protection: something you rightfully expect – something we undertake to provide

You may safely rely on us to provide the appropriate security and protection for your personal data: at FG Geothermie GmbH, due regard for your privacy enjoys top priority when processing personal data, an aspect that is given its rightful consideration in all of our business processes.

So we would like at this point to explain to you the basic principles we apply when handling personal data. You will also always find the information given here, and where applicable any further details, on how personal data are collected, processed and used, at the places where we ask you to supply information of this nature. 

The information we gather

You can use well-nigh all of the internet pages of this website without the need to disclose any of your personal data to us. There are only a few options and services contained in our website that necessitate the entry of personal data so as to be able to use them.

When you are using the internet pages of the website, the internet servers (webservers) will automatically record technical access data, and evaluate them. Please note, however, that these data cannot be traced back to any particular person; the individual user remains anonymous in the process. The data in question will not be merged with other data.

Protecting the privacy of children on the internet

FG Geothermie GmbH will never knowingly collect the personal data of children, or use them in any way. As a rule, the age of the persons visiting our website remains unknown to us. On the other hand, we have not taken any specific action to give data of this kind any particular protection, either.

Since FG Geothermie GmbH has a particularly strong commitment to protecting children who are using internet sites, FG Geothermie GmbH would recommend all parents and guardians, etc. to make sure that children are properly familiarised with the safe and responsible use of personal data in the internet.

Children should never communicate any personal data to FG Geothermie GmbH without the express permission of their parents or guardians.

How we use your information

FG Geothermie GmbH collects, processes and uses all personal data gathered through your visits on our website only in due compliance with the currently valid regulations on the protection of personal data.

We use the personal data communicated to us only for the purposes outlined in this privacy statement (e.g. in order to process any inquiries, or to utilise internet services). When forms are employed to collect personal data, these will contain a reference stating for what purpose the data concerned are being collected. These data will never be used for purposes other than the one stated.

FG Geothermie GmbH will never, without your explicit consent, pass on to third parties the personal data you have provided us with.

Inquiring about, changing, and deleting your data

You can send us a written inquiry at any time in accordance with applicable law, asking us whether, and if so, what personal data about you are on file at our company. You may at any time have the personal data, which have been collected by us, blocked, corrected or deleted. You may also at any time and without stating any reason revoke for the future the consent you have given us to collect and use the data. To do this, please get in touch with the contact address listed in the masthead. You can also use this address to contact our Data Protection Officer. We will always be pleased to answer any further questions you may have in connection with data protection information and with the processing of your personal data.

Security of your data

The data you have communicated to FG Geothermie GmbH are protected by means of suitable technical and organisational instruments, all of them designed to safeguard your data against accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction, access by unauthorised persons, or against unauthorised disclosure to third parties. In this context, please note that our security measures are continually reviewed and improved in line with the technological developments and organisational options available.
