Data protection declaration
These statements apply to all AMF-operated websites and domains
Liability for content
The contents of our web pages were created with great care. However, we can not assume any liability for the accuracy, completeness and timeliness of the content. According to Section 7 (1) TMG (German Teleservices Act), we, as a service provider, are responsible according to the general laws for our own content on these web pages. However, according to Section 8 to 10 TMG we, as a service provider, are not obliged to monitor transferred or stored external information or to investigate circumstances that would indicate illegal activity. Obligations to remove or block the use of information under general law remain unaffected. However, a liability with respect to such infringements only exists from the date of knowledge of a specific infringement. We will remove such content immediately upon notification of such violations.
Liability for links
Our offer contains links to external websites operated by third parties whose content we have no influence over. Therefore, we can not assume any liability for such external contents. The respective provider or operator of web pages is always responsible for the content of linked web pages. The linked web pages were checked for possible legal violations at the time of linking. There was no illegal content recognizable at the time of linking. However, ongoing content control of linked web pages is not reasonable without specific evidence of an infringement. We will remove such links immediately upon notification of violations.
The content and works on web pages created by site operators are subject to German copyright law. The reproduction, processing, distribution and any kind of exploitation outside of copyright law limits require the written consent of the respective author or creator. Downloads and copies of such web pages are permissible only for private, but not for non-commercial use. The copyrights of third parties are considered to the extent the content on this web page was not created by its operator. In particular, contents of third parties are marked as such. Please notify us if you become aware of a copyright infringement. We will remove such content immediately upon notification of violations.
Personal data provided by you will be used exclusively for the correct processing and improvement of current and/or future business relationships (preparation of offers, shipping of catalogues, consultations, etc.). The data will be treated confidentially according to the applicable data protection regulations.
AMF cooperates with other business partners (distribution partners, transport companies, etc.) if this is necessary for the provision of a service or the execution of a contract. Data necessary for effective cooperation will be shared in such a case. Data will also be passed on to public authorities if a legal obligation to do so exists.
Our website uses social plugins (“plugins”) of the social network facebook.com, which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”). These plugins are recognizable by the Facebook logos (white “f” on a blue tile or a “thumbs up” sign) or are labelled with the addition “Facebook Social Plugin”. The list and look of Facebook Social Plugins can be viewed here: http://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins
Your browser will establish a direct connection to the Facebook servers when you visit a web page of our website that contains such a plugin. The plugin content is transmitted by Facebook directly to your browser and incorporated by it into the website. We thus have no influence on the amount of data collected by Facebook with the help of this plugin. We therefore inform you according to what we know:
The integration of the plugins delivers data on what web page you have accessed on our website to Facebook. If you are logged in to Facebook, Facebook can link the visit to your Facebook account. Information from interactions with the plugins, for example by pressing the Like button or leaving a comment, is transmitted from your browser directly to Facebook and stored there. It is still possible for Facebook to find out and save your IP address even if you are not a member of Facebook.
You must log out of Facebook before visiting our website if you are a Facebook member and do not want Facebook to collect data about you visiting our website and linking such to your member data stored by Facebook.
You can also use browser add-ons to block Facebook social plugins, for example the "Facebook Blocker".
Our website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, i.e. text files stored on your computer that allow an analysis of your use of the website. Any information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, if IP anonymization is activated on this website, your IP address will be truncated by Google before transmitting it within member states of the European Union or other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.
Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the US and truncated there. Google will use this information on behalf of the operator of this website to evaluate your use of this website, to compile reports on website activities and to provide other services to the website operator that are related to website activities and internet usage. The IP address provided by Google Analytics as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.
You can prevent the storage of cookies by making specific settings in your browser software; however, please note that doing so may prevent you from using the features of this website to the fullest extent possible. You can prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to your use of this website (including your IP address) as well as the processing of such data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de
Our website uses Google AdSense, a service for integrating Google Inc. (“Google”) advertisements. Google AdSense uses so-called “cookies”, i.e. text files stored on your computer that allow an analysis of the use of this website. Google AdSense also uses so-called web beacons (invisible graphics). These web beacons can be used to evaluate information such as visitor traffic on such web pages.
The information generated by cookies and web beacons on the use of this website (including your IP address) and the delivery of advertising formats are transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the USA. This information may be shared by Google with contractual partners of Google. However, Google will not merge your IP address with other data it has stored on you.
You can prevent the installation of cookies by making specific settings in your browser software; however, please note that doing so may prevent you from using the features of this website to the fullest extent possible. By using this website, you consent to the processing of data collected about you by Google in the manner and for the purposes set out above.
Our website uses the “+1” button of the Google Plus social network operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States (“Google”). The button is recognizable by the “+1” sign on a white or coloured background.
Your browser will establish a direct connection to the Google servers when you visit a web page of our website that contains such a button. The content of the “+1” button is transmitted by Google directly to your browser and incorporated by it into the website. We therefore have no control over the amount of data collected by Google with this button, but we do assume that your IP address will be included.
You must log out of Google Plus before visiting our website if you are a Google Plus member and do not want Google to collect data about you visiting our website and linking such to your member data stored by Google.
Our web pages integrate functions of the Twitter service. These functions are provided by Twitter Inc., Twitter, Inc. 1355 Market St, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103, USA. The websites you visit are linked to your Twitter account and shared with other users whenever you use Twitter and the “Re-Tweet” function. Data is also transmitted to Twitter.
You can change your privacy settings on Twitter in the Account Settings at http://twitter.com/account/settings
Our website uses so-called cookies at several locations. They serve to make our offer more user-friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small text files that are file on your computer and stored by your browser. Most of the cookies used by our web pages are so-called “session cookies”. They are automatically deleted after your visit. Cookies do not harm your computer and do not contain viruses.
The user agrees that all data entered by the user will be stored and processed during the execution of the contract. You can revoke this consent with effect for the future at any time by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
