astora online data protection principles

astora is delighted that you have visited our website. Thank you for your interest in our company.

At astora, data protection is of the utmost importance. This document is designed to provide you with information on how we implement data protection in our company, what information we record while you are browsing our website, and how this information is used. Your personal data is only used in the following cases below and will not be used in any other cases without your explicit approval.

Data collection

When you visit the astora website, general information is collected automatically which is not stored as personal related data. The web servers record the following data by default:

  • The name of your internet service provider
  • The website from which you visited us
  • The websites which you visit when you are with us
  • Your IP address

This anonymous information is analysed, and used solely for the purpose of improving the attractiveness, content and functionality of our website. 

Collection and processing of personal data

Additionally, personal data is only collected and stored when you provide us with this data of your own accord, such as part of a registration, job application, filling out a form, sending e-mails, ordering products or services, making inquiries or requesting material.

The database and its contents remain at our company and our provider. Your personal data will not be made available in any form to third parties by us or persons commissioned by us.

Data Retention

We store personal data for as long as it is necessary to perform a service that you have requested or for which you have granted your permission, providing that no legal requirements exist to the contrary such as in the case of retention periods required by trade or tax regulations.

Security

astora deploys technical and organizational security measures to protect the information you have made available from being manipulated unintentionally or intentionally, lost, destroyed or accessed by unauthorized persons. Where personal data is being collected and processed, the information will be transferred in encrypted form in order to prevent misuse of the data by a third party. Our security measures are continuously reviewed and revised in line with the latest technology.

You have the right to obtain information on all of your stored personal data, and if necessary to amend it. To do this, just send an email to the email address indicated in the imprint or to the person in charge of data protection (see below for the relevant contact details).
