Data privacy statement of the VBS GmbH

Here are the principles of data processing that apply to this website. Further principles of our data processing apply to our web shop.

Which data of a visitor to our website is stored by our systems?

By using this website, you consent to the processing of data and the processing of data collected about you in the manner and for the purposes set out below.

If you only want to look at our pages, you do not need to enter any personal data as a visitor. Our systems store general information without reference to your personal data, such as information about the browser type and its version, the user's operating system, the user's IP address, date and time of access, websites from which the user's system accessed our website websites that are accessed by the user's system via our website. The creation of a reference to the person of the visitor would only be possible with individual (static) IP addresses with great effort for us, which we do not operate. For our statistics, the reference to your person is not permanently necessary and is anonymised.

The collection of this data for the provision of the website and the storage of the data in log files is absolutely necessary for the operation of the website and these are not permanently stored by us, otherwise they are anonymised by deleting part of the IP number.

Cookies are used on our websites if necessary. When a user calls up a website, a cookie (small text file) can be stored in the user's file system. This cookie contains a characteristic character string that enables the browser to be clearly identified when the website is called up again. However, the visitor can remove (delete) these cookies from his computer system himself by using the setting options in his browser system.


If the user clicks on links offered on the VBS GmbH website and thereby leaves the VBS GmbH website, VBS GmbH assumes no responsibility for compliance with legal provisions by the operator of the linked website.

Data security

VBS GmbH uses SSL encryption on the relevant pages for customer-related forms. For email, TLS, SSL and STARTTLS are used as encryption.

The user bears a significant part of the responsibility by ensuring that his system is set up for these encryption technologies and by taking the usual measures to protect against viruses and security gaps (updates, virus protection).

VBS GmbH assumes no responsibility for the disregard of rules and regulations by others.

E-mail contact

You have the option of contacting us using the contact form provided. Providing your personal data there is of course voluntary. The personal data you transmit in this context will only be used to process your request, unless you have given your separate consent to further use.

Contact forms

The following data is collected: country (if applicable state), company name, e-mail address, telephone number, salutation, name, subject, message text, IP Number, type of device used by the customer. These data are necessary for support services by VBS GmbH.

Your consent will be obtained for the processing of the data during the sending process and reference will be made to this data protection declaration.

In this context, the data will not be passed on to third parties. The data will only be used to process the conversation.

The other personal data processed during the sending process serve to prevent misuse of the contact form and to ensure the security of our information technology systems.

As soon as your request has been resolved, the personal data collected via the contact form will be deleted. No deletion will only take place if this is required by law.

The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer required to achieve the purpose for which they were collected. The e-mail address of the user is therefore stored as long as the subscription to the newsletter is active.

Applies only when using a newsletter addon that offers Google™ Analytics.

Google® Analytics is a web analytics service provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA.

Personal data of the user are recorded with the help of cookies and passed on to Google®. Cookies are small text files that are stored on the user's computer. However, the user can delete these files himself or prevent them from being saved. This limits the functionality of the websites.

Passing on data to social media providers

If social media plugins should be installed on the web shop or on other websites of the publisher:

Personal data of the user are recorded with the help of cookies and passed on to Facebook® or other web services of this kind.

VBS Verlag reserves the right to use external services to process the newsletter dispatch if necessary.

In this case, the personal data of interested parties and customers will be passed on to shipping services such as Mailchimp or Cleverreach.

When ordering the newsletter delivery, the interested party agrees to the processing by these external services, which receive their name and email address.

We would like to point out that data transmission on the Internet (e.g. when communicating by e-mail) can have security gaps. A complete protection of the data against access by third parties is not possible.
