INTRODUCTION AND TERMS
In operating our website www.sollors.com (hereinafter referred to as "website") we process personal data. We treat this data confidentially and process it in accordance with the applicable laws - in particular the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG). With our data protection policies we want to inform you which personal data we collect from you, for which purposes and on which legal basis we use this data and if necessary to whom we disclose it. Furthermore, we will explain to you which rights you are entitled to in order to protect and enforce your data privacy.
Our data protection regulations contain technical terms from the GDPR and the BDSG. For your better understanding we would like to explain these in simple terms in advance:
"Personal data" means all information relating to an identified or identifiable person (Art. 4 No. 1 GDPR). Information of an identified person can be e.g. the name or the e-mail address. However, personal data also includes data where the identity is not immediately apparent but can be determined by combining one's own information or that of others and thus determining the data subject’s identity. A person can be identified, for example, by entering his or her address or bank details, date of birth or username, IP address and/or location data. Relevant in this context is all information that allows an inference to a person in any way.
Art. 4 No. 2 GDPR defines "processing" as any operation involving personal data. This applies in particular to the collection, recording, organization, arrangement, storage, adaptation or modification, reading, querying, use, disclosure, transmission, dissemination or any other form of provision, comparison or linking, restriction, deletion or destruction of personal data.
