SSL encryption

This site uses SSL encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as requests you send to us as a site operator. You can identify an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from “http://” to “https://” and by the lock symbol in your browser line. With the activated SSL encryption, the data that you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.

Collection and processing of personal data

When using our website, we only collect personal data if it is technically necessary or necessary for the use of the online services offered here.

When you access our website, i.e. if you do not register or otherwise provide us with information, we only collect data that your browser automatically transfers to our server (so-called “server log files”). We have no influence on this. The following information is collected therefore without your intervention and stored until it is automatically deleted:

  • visited website
  • date and time of access
  • amount of transmitted data in bytes
  • source/reference from which you accessed the site
  • browser used
  • operating system used
  • IP address used in anonymised form

The processing is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR on the basis of our legitimate interest in improving the stability and functionality of our website. The data will not be passed on or used in any other way. At this point, we would like to point out that the data collected does not allow us to draw any direct conclusions about your identity and that we do not draw any such conclusions.

However, we reserve the right to subsequently check the server log files if there are concrete indications of illegal use.

With our online service “Contact” you decide yourself which data you provide. We use this data to process your order or to provide you with access to special information/offers.

Your consent to the processing and use of voluntary information can be revoked at any time with effect for the future.

Collection and processing of personal data

We attach great importance to the protection of your personal data and adhere to the prevailing legal provisions on data protection and data security. For this reason, we do not collect any personal data via our websites without your consent. When registering for the newsletter, to contact, as a visitor or for sponsoring enquiries, you yourself decide whether or not you wish to use this service and provide us with the necessary personal data. We use them to respond to your inquiry, process your order or provide you with access to special information/offers. When you visit our website, we store accessing data. In this case, we only collect information that is used for statistical purposes, whereby you as a visitor remain anonymous. Such information includes, for example, the time and duration of your visit to our website as well as the pages on which you have clicked. When you visit www.epne.de, so-called “cookies” are used (see below).

Consent

We only process your personal data with your consent, which you can revoke at any time. Your personal data will be treated confidentially and will only be passed on to external service companies if this is necessary for the fulfilment of the contract and processing of enquiries.

Furthermore, your personal data will only be passed on if you have given your express prior consent or if this is necessary to prosecute criminal offences. A disclosure to authorities or state institutions with the right to information only takes place if there is a legal obligation to provide information or if a judicial decision is made. Your privacy concerns are taken into account in accordance with the legal data protection regulations. We may be required by law to disclose your information to third parties. We only comply with such requests to the extent that this is necessary within the scope of the statutory obligation. Any consent given by you to the disclosure of the data can be revoked at any time and without giving us any reasons.

Security

We take technical and organisational measures which are necessary to protect your personal data so that the data is not lost, falsified or manipulated or unauthorised persons do not become aware of it. Taking into account the available technical possibilities, the measures are aimed at maintaining a suitable high level of safety.

If such personal data are stored and processed at EP New Enegies, the data subjects will receive information on request about the type of personal data, where they come from, for which purposes the data are processed and to which external service providers or websites the data are disclosed. The request for information regarding the processing of personal data must be submitted in writing to EP New Energies GmbH, Dominique Guillou, Köpenicker Straße 54, 10179 Berlin and signed by the person who wishes to be informed with regard to his/her own data.
