VR Equitypartner GmbH Data Protection

Data Policy

Basic Principles

Thank you for visiting our website and for your interest in our company. We take the protection of your personal data very seriously and want you to feel secure during your visit to this website. Any personal information you provide will be treated with due care, pursuant to the relevant data protection legislation.

E-mail Communication

Please note that although we do use e-mail encryption, secure sending of e-mails is only possible if both parties support encryption. In other words, it is not enough for us to simply offer encryption — the provider of your e-mail environment also has to support encryption. If you do not know whether that is the case, you will need to contact your e-mail provider.

E-mail communication has inherent technical disadvantages, including the fact that unencrypted e-mail messages sent via the open internet may be viewed (confidentiality cannot be guaranteed) or even altered (integrity cannot be guaranteed) by unauthorised persons. The sender of an e-mail can also be altered (authenticity cannot be guaranteed). Please bear in mind when sending e-mails to VR Equitypartner GmbH that this form of communication is not as confidential or secure as sending via physical mail. You should therefore think carefully about what information you send to us by e-mail, and use physical mail for your security when sending us confidential messages. 

Since it is possible to falsify the sender of an e-mail message and/or change the content, for your and our security we reserve the right to request further confirmation before we bindingly accept the contents of an e-mail. Please do not send any unrequested advertising or orders by e-mail.

Recording and Processing of Personal Data

As a general rule, it is possible to visit the web pages of VR Equitypartner GmbH without our needing to obtain any personal data from you. We do not ascertain the name of your internet service provider, the website which you visited before ours, or the pages which you visited on our website. Individual visitors remain anonymous to us.

Visits to our website are completely anonymous. Solely for the purposes of evaluating or improving our website, we store data about page visits and browser types used. Anonymised IP addresses are stored, but the domain names of site visitors are not stored. 

Personal data will only be collected and processed only if you enter it (e.g. if you register to receive press releases or order informational material) and will only be used for that purpose.

Use of Cookies

On some parts of the website, VR Equitypartner GmbH uses cookies, so that we can customise our services for you. Cookies are identifiers which a web server sends to your computer in order to identify you for the duration of your visit. There are settings in your browser via which you can request a notification concerning the placing of cookies, or via which you can disable cookies. As a general rule, VR Equitypartner GmbH uses cookies solely for the purpose of managing your session on the parts of our website which are also associated with a personal login. Each cookie stores the identity (ID) of the user session only, so that it can be assigned to the user. These cookies are not stored permanently; they are only stored for the duration of the session or period during which the browser is open. Exception: cookies which are used for integrated analytics. In such cases, in order to ensure data protection a cookie for disabling the gathering of analytics data is permanently stored on your computer.

Google Maps

The VR Equitypartner GmbH website uses the Google Maps API to visually display geographic information. When you use Google Maps, Google (Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, California, 94043, USA) will also gather, process and utilise data regarding use of the Maps functions by website visitors. For further information on how Google processes the data, see the Google data protection info.

Storing of Data from Contact Forms

The data you enter in the address fields in the contact forms on our website (e-mail address and subject matter, along with (optionally) name and company) are encrypted before being sent to VR Equitypartner GmbH. Third parties are unable to access this data. 

VR Equitypartner GmbH uses this data solely to answer your inquiry or respond to your request for information and send it to you. Your data is then deleted, and is not forwarded to third parties, provided there is no statutory obligation to keep the data.
