Users of the website will from time to time provide me with personal data, such as their name, address, telephone number and credit card details, such as during this website's registration process. You may revoke this agreement. In this case please send me a letter to my address or email (see Impressum – Legal Disclosure).

Only in exceptional cases the whole IP address will be first transfered to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. The IP-anonymisation is active on this website. Google will use this information on behalf of the operator of this website for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators and providing them other services relating to website activity and internet usage. The IP-address, that your Browser conveys within the scope of Google Analytics, will not be associated with any other data held by Google.

  • a telephone number.
I need your personal data to process your order and to get into contact with you. I store also all further necessary data to process your orders such as your payment option, your actual orders or your past purchases. You can be assured that your personal data is never shared with any third party. I track and collect IP addresses from visitors who are logged in. This information is not shared or given to any third party. Tracking IP addresses also help me to improve my website and designs and protect me from misuse or fraud.



Usage of my website according § 15, article 3 German Act for Telemedia Services
You can browse through my website without registration. For website improvements I keep track of how vistors and customers use my website e.g. how long you browsed through my website, which sites you have visted or name of your internet service provider. These informations are not tied to personally identifiable information.
Small files (often known as cookies) may, depending on your browser settings, be automatically stored on your computer's hard drive when your web browser accesses a specific web page. The website uses a session ID to recognise your username and password, and to keep you logged-in to your account (until you log out of it).
Other websites you visit, including those of other third parties linked to on the website, have their own privacy policies. I advise you to review the privacy policies of websites before providing them with any of your personal information.

Disclosure of personal data
You can be assured that your personal data is never shared with any third party. But your personal data may be disclosed if I or an entity processing your data on our behalf are compelled to do so by law, or receive a valid, legally compliant request by a law enforcement or governmental authority.
Information, rectification of personal data, cancellation and termination of your account If you wish to get informed what personal data I have collected about you, a written enquiry should be addressed by letter or email to me. You will get a written or electronic information, which comply with § 13, article 7 German Act for Telemedia Services.
To inspect, change or correct your identity and contact information, please log-in to your account. To cancel and terminate your account, please send me a letter or an email. Please note your account cannot be canceled or terminated if an order is still open. It is also true that your account cannot be canceled or terminated if I have to enforce my rights. For future use of the website you have to register again.

Cookies
Cookies are small files and may, depending on your browser settings, be automatically stored on your computer's hard drive when your web browser accesses a specific web page. I use temporary cookies which are removed from your computer when you sign out of my website. Temporary cookies are not tied to personally identifiable information. If you do not want to accept cookies ask the help function of your web browser or ask the manual. You may still browse through my website and purchase designs.

Security
I take appropriate technical and organisational measures to guard against unauthorised or unlawful processing of your personal data and against accidental loss or destruction of, or damage to, your personal data. I use SSL encryption to transmit sensitive information. The security certificate is provided by Thawte. Take a look at the seal to get more information about the security certificate. While no computer system is completely secure, I believe the measures implemented by my website reduce the likelihood of security problems to a level appropriate to the type of data involved. I have security measures in place to protect my customer database and access to this database is restricted internally. However, it remains each customer's responsibility:

  • to ensure no-one else uses the Anja Rieger Design website while the customer's computer is "logged on" to his/her account;
  • to log off or exit from the account when not using it; and
  • to keep his/her password or other access information secret.


Updates and changes
I may need to change this privacy policy from time to time. In such an event, I will post the new version on the website, and notify customers of the fact that there is a changed privacy policy on the homepage of the website. The new version of the privacy policy will take effect:

  • when the customer next places a order on the website; or if later
  • seven days after the date of posting of the changed privacy policy (or such later date as may be indicated in the posting).
I will also give notice of any significant future changes of privacy policy on the website itself or/and in an email at least 30 days in advance of the changes. At that time, if you wish to remove or amend any information that is stored in your account at Anja Rieger Design, please remove or amend it.



Miscellaneous
I oppose the use of any available contact information by a third party for sending unsolicited advertisements. As the website provider, I reserve the express right to take legal action against unsolicited mailing or emailing of spam and other similar advertising materials.
