1. Website content
The author accepts no responsibility for ensuring that information on the website is up to date, correct or complete or for the quality of the information provided. Liability claims against the author relating to material or nonmaterial damage due to the use or non-use of displayed information, or the use of erroneous or incomplete information, are excluded on principle, unless the author shall be proved to have acted intentionally or with gross negligence.
The website is nonbinding and subject to change without notice. The author expressly reserves the right to change, supplement or delete the whole or parts of the website or to cease publication temporarily or permanently without special notification.
2. External sites and links
In the case of direct or indirect links to websites outside the sphere of responsibility of the author, liability would be effective only if the author were aware of the content of such a website and it would have been technically possible and reasonable for him to have prevented linkage to illegal content.
The author declares expressly herewith that at the time of linkage no illegal content was discernible on any of the linked websites. The author has no influence whatsoever on the current or future design, the content or copyright of the linked websites. He therefore expressly distances himself from all content of all linked websites that have been changed since the linkage occurred.
This statement shall apply to all links and cross-references within our own website as well as to external entries in guest books, discussion forums and mailing lists set up by the author. The provider of the website to which reference has been made, and not the person who merely provides links to the relevant publication, is solely responsible for illegal, erroneous or incomplete content and in particular for any damage that may ensue from the use or non-use of such content and information.
3. Copyright and trade mark law
In all publications the author has endeavoured to respect the copyrights of all graphics, sound documents, video sequences and texts, to use graphics, sound documents, video sequences and texts drafted by himself or to access graphics, sound documents, video sequences and texts in the public domain. Any trademarks or brand names mentioned on the websites which may be protected by third parties are subject without restriction to the provisions of the trademark laws applicable in each case and to the rights of ownership of the registered owners. No conclusion may be drawn based merely on the mention of a trademark that it is not protected by third-party rights!
The author of the website shall have sole copyright to published objects produced by the author himself. Reproduction or use of such graphics, sound documents, video sequences and texts in other electronic or printed publications is not permitted without the express consent of the author.
4. Data protection
FRÖBEL takes the protection of personal data very seriously. In our comments on data protection we explain what information we record at FRÖBEL's during your visit to our website and how we use it.
5. Validity of this disclaimer
This disclaimer should be regarded as part of the website to which it is linked. Insofar as parts or isolated formulations of this text do not conform or no longer or incompletely conform to prevailing legal norms, the remaining parts of the document shall remain unaffected with regard to content and validity.
Comments on data protection
FRÖBEL takes the protection of personal data very seriously, which is why we would like to inform you about our data privacy statement. Here you will find information about how we collect and use personal data when our website is used. In doing so we follow data privacy laws applicable to Germany. You can read this statement on our website at any time.
We expressly point out that the transfer of data via the Internet (e.g. when communicating by email) may involve security gaps and cannot be fully protected from access by third parties (see also under "E-mails").
Use of the contact details in the "Legal" section of our website for commercial advertising purposes is expressly not desired, unless our written consent has been issued previously or a business relationship has already been established. The provider and all persons named on this website hereby object to any commercial use and disclosure of their data.
Personal data are particulars about personal or material relationships of an identified or identifiable natural person. This includes information such as the person’s real name, address, telephone number and date of birth. Information which cannot be directly connected with the person’s true identity – such as bookmarked websites or the number of users of a site – are not personal data.
You can access our website without providing any personal data. If personal data (such as a person’s name, address or e-mail address) is collected on our site, this will take place wherever possible on a voluntary basis. This data will not be passed on to third parties without your express consent. In the event that a contractual relationship between you and us is to be established, amended or developed in terms of content, or you make a request to us, we will collect and use your personal data to the extent that this is required to fulfil these purposes (inventory data). We will collect, process and use your personal data to the extent that this is required to enable you to make use of the website (usage data). Any personal data will be stored only for as long as is necessary for the aforementioned purpose (processing your request or performing a contract). In so doing, we will take into account record retention periods under fiscal and commercial law. By order of the competent authorities, we will be permitted in an individual case to provide information on this data (inventory data) if this is necessary to carry out prosecution proceedings, to protect against threats to public safety, to fulfil the statutory tasks of the constitution protection authorities or the Military Counter-Intelligence Service, or to enforce intellectual property rights.
The following data will be collected:
the page from which the file was requested,
the name of the file accessed,
the date and time of the request,
the quantity of data transferred,
the access status (file transferred, file not found, etc.),
a description of the type of browser or operating system used,
the anonymised IP address of the requesting computer,
the referrer URL (the page last visited).
Personal data such as your name, address, telephone number or e-mail address will not be collected unless you provide this data voluntarily, e.g. while registering, taking a survey, entering a competition, submitting an application, performing a contract or making a request for information.
This website uses Google Analytics, a website analysis service from Google Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics uses so-called "cookies": text files which are saved onto your computer and which make it possible to analyse your use of the website. The information generated by cookies about your use of our website is ordinarily transferred to a Google server in the USA and saved there.
We have activated IP address anonymisation, which means that within the member states of the European Union, or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area, your IP address on this website will have been abbreviated. A full IP address will only be transferred to a Google server in the USA and abbreviated there in exceptional circumstances. Google will use this information on behalf of our website’s provider to evaluate your use of the website, to create reports about the website’s activities and to issue our website’s provider with further services associated with the use of the website and use of the Internet.
The IP address transmitted from your browser within the framework of Google Analytics will not be merged with other data from Google. You can prevent cookies from being saved by activating the corresponding browser software settings; however, please note that in this case you might not be able to use all of the website’s functions to their full extent. You can also prevent the collection by Google of data generated by cookies and from your use of the website (including your IP address), as well as the processing of this data by Google, by downloading and installing the browser plug-in from the following link:
In view of he discussion on the use of analytical tools with complete IP addresses, we would like to point out that our website uses Google Analytics with the extension "_anonymizeIp()", and therefore IP addresses are only processed further in abbreviated form to prevent them being directly linked to a particular individual (so called IP-masking). Please click this link to prevent Google Analytics from collecting anonymised data in future on our website with the aid of so-called "opt-out cookies" for your browser: Google Analytics deaktivieren.
We also use Google Analytics to evaluate data from AdWords and DoubleClick cookies for statistical purposes. If you would prefer us not to, you can deactivate this option using the Ad Preferences Manager (https://www.google.com/settings/u/0/ads/authenticated?hl=en).
Please note that any content you send to us by e-mail (e.g. over our Internet mailbox) will be transmitted in unencrypted form. Therefore the security of sensitive data and content against unauthorized disclosure and corruption cannot be guaranteed via this means of transmission.
If you send us an unsolicited electronic application, we will only save the data contained in it for the purpose of reviewing your application. If your application cannot be taken into consideration, we will delete this data by default.
We require a valid e-mail address from you in order for you to receive our newsletter. After registering you will be asked via e-mail to confirm your registration and with it the saving and use of your data in order to distribute the newsletter (double opt-in process). Clicking on the link in the e-mail will add your e-mail address to our newsletter mailing list and will record the time this is confirmed by the e-mail address holder. Any other data will not be collected. You can withdraw your consent at any time with an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Use and disclosure of personal data
We use the personal data you provide exclusively for the technical administration of our website and to fulfil your requests and demands, normally to perform a contract agreed with you or to respond to your request.
We will also only use this data for product-related surveys and marketing purposes if you have given us prior consent or if you – as far as statutory regulations allow – have not filed an objection.
If transferring personal data to an external service provider is necessary to provide a service or process a request, we will ensure compliance with legal provisions on data protection as defined by § 11 BDSG by taking technical and organisational measures. In addition, FRÖBEL obligates external service providers to comply with the relevant legal provisions on data protection, to treat personal data confidentially and, as soon as it is no longer required, to delete personal data immediately.
Children’s personal data
Due to the importance of protecting children’s privacy, we do not wish to collect, process or use personal data from persons under the age of 18 years old. If as a parent or legal guardian you discover that your children have provided their personal data to us, you can get in touch with us using the contact details in the "Legal" section of our website if you want the data to be deleted.
If as an exception we have to save personal data in a cookie, we will ask for your express permission first. We would also like to point out that browsers usually have functions for managing cookies.
Right to information
We are happy to inform you of any data saved about you (e.g. name, address) upon written request. You have the right at any time to withhold your consent to use any personal data you have provided with effect for the future. For more information please contact the provider stated in the contact details in the “Legal” section of our website.
FRÖBEL takes all the necessary technical and organisational security measures to protect your personal data against loss and misuse. Your data is saved in a secure operating environment, which is not accessible to the general public. If you would like to get in touch with FRÖBEL by e-mail, please note that we cannot guarantee the complete security of your data. We therefore recommend sending confidential information by post.
If you have any questions regarding the processing of your personal data, please contact FRÖBEL's data protection officer who is on hand to answer requests for information, suggestions or complaints.
FRÖBEL's data protection officer can be reached by e-mail at email@example.com
