Data Privacy Policy of MIK GmbH

Liability for content

Even though great care has been taken in the preparation of the content for this website, nevertheless we cannot guarantee that it is accurate, complete and up-to-date.
According to §7, paragraph 1 of the German Telemedia Act (TMG), as a service provider we are responsible under general law for our own content on these pages. In accordance with §8 to §10 of the TMG, as a service provider we are not however required to monitor transmitted or stored third-party information or to investigate any circumstances that indicate illegal activity. This does not affect our statutory obligations to remove or block the use of information. Any liability in this respect is only possible from the time we become aware that a breach has actually occurred. We will immediately remove any infringing content as soon as it is brought to our notice.

Liability for links

Our website contains links to the external websites of third parties. As we have no control over these, we cannot accept any liability for such external content. The provider or operator of the respective site is always responsible for the content of the linked pages. At the time of linking, these pages were checked for possible infringements and no illegal content was identified. However, it is unreasonable to expect ongoing monitoring of the content of linked pages without any specific indication of an infringement. We will immediately remove any infringing links as soon as they are brought to our notice.

Die MIK GmbH ist sich bewusst, dass es von äußerster Wichtigkeit ist, mit allen personenbezogenen Daten, die User übermitteln, umsichtig und sensibel umzugehen. Die MIK GmbH beachtet daher alle einschlägigen gesetzlichen Datenschutzvorgaben.
MIK GmbH is fully aware of the importance of treating all personally identifiable information entrusted to us by users with great care and sensitivity. MIK GmbH therefore complies with all relevant data protection regulations.
By using this website you give MIK GmbH your consent to the use of your data for the purposes set out in this data privacy statement. You may withdraw your consent again at any time informally in an email.

What is personally identifiable information?

Personally identifiable information is any data that could be used to identify a specific individual. This includes the following information: your real name, address, postal address, email address and telephone number. It does not include information that cannot be linked to your real identity, such as pages you mark as favourites or the number of users on a site for example.

Data security

MIK GmbH uses technical and organisational security measures to safeguard any personal information you provide from access and misuse by unauthorised third parties. All personal data transmitted is encrypted, for example using the TLS/SSL protocol (Transport Layer Security/Secure Sockets Layer). We constantly review such security measures in line with advances in technology and to take any changes in the relevant regulations into account.

What do we do with your data?

As a matter of course, we will safeguard the confidentiality of all information you provide. We use personal information to track your product orders, downloads or registrations for events, seminars, training courses or competitions, and also for sending you specific information, offers, MIK info bulletins and invitations to the email address you specified.
Whenever you use services on our website that require registration (downloads or registrations), we will ask for your name and other personal information. The date, time or other pages viewed may also be recorded for analysis purposes.

IP addresses

IP addresses are used to analyse malfunctions, to manage the website and for collecting demographic information. We may also use IP addresses and any other information you provide us with on this website or on another occasion in order to find out what pages are visited and what interests our visitors. We use the findings to optimise the information we provide about our products and services. MIK collects such data in anonymised form only and it will not link it to the profile of a registered user without their consent. Only the domain name is recorded as standard when you visit our website.

Disclosure to third parties

We do not disclose your data to third parties who are not employees or affiliated partners of MIK GmbH (partner companies that realise projects using MIK technology or directly market our software) – unless you have given your consent or unless we have a legal obligation to disclose it, following a court order for example.

Website tracking

For marketing and optimisation purposes this website uses products and services from WiredMinds (www.wiredminds.de). Data is collected, processed and stored to create user profiles under a pseudonym. Where possible and practicable, the user profiles are fully anonymised. Cookies may be used for this purpose. Cookies are small text files saved by the user’s web browser which allow the browser to be recognised again. The collected data, which may also include personally identifiable information, is transmitted to WiredMinds or directly collected by WiredMinds. WiredMinds may use information left by website visits to create anonymised user profiles. Without the explicit consent of the respective user, the data obtained in this way will not be used to personally identify visitors to this website and it will not be combined with personal data via the pseudonym. Any IP addresses recorded are anonymised immediately after collection by deleting the last number block. Permission to collect, process and store data in the future may be revoked at any time.
