Data Protection Declaration

We (subsequently referred to as AFiN) regard the protection of your personal data as a matter of special priority and therefore the processing of such information takes place exclusively on the basis of the mandatory regulations. In this Data Protection Declaration, we therefore wish to inform you of the most important aspects of data processing within the framework of our website.

Personal data

Basically, you can be visit our website without providing personal data. Information linked to accessing the AFiN website is stored anonymously and conclusions regarding your person are impossible. Personal data is only logged when you provide it via our contact form, or by means of telephone or written disclosure. We handle your data in a responsible manner and in accordance with legal statutes.

Data logging and intended application

AFiN gathers, processes and uses the personal data that has been provided voluntarily by you, to the extent required for the handling of enquiries or orders.

Subject to the proviso of your revocation, which can be expressed at any time, we wish to employ the personal data that you provide us with (e.g. your name, address, e-mail address) solely for the purpose of occasionally informing you about our products and services, new developments and company reports.

Data transfers

Under certain circumstances, in order to facilitate order handling it may be necessary to transfer your data to a third party, which is involved in the completion process, e.g. during goods delivery, or the processing of your payment.

Otherwise your personal data will not be passed on to third parties, or transferred to third countries, unless owing to mandatory regulations AFiN is obliged to do so, or you yourself request portability.

Revocation of data use and the right to information

We are naturally pleased to provide you with information regarding the use of the personal data that you have disclosed to us. You have a right to information with respect to your stored data, as well as to the rectification of incorrect data, restriction and erasure.

You may revoke your consent to data use, processing and portability at any time in writing.

In such a case, please contact us by e-mail at

Data coding

Should your personal data be transferred to us, e.g. within the scope of a contact form, it will be coded using the secure socket layer (SSL) process. The employment of this procedure prior to the transfer of your data distorts it to such an extent that reconstruction by a third party is impossible. Furthermore, this coding process also ensures that your data can only be sent to the server by which it has been requested.

The IP address transferred from your browser in the course of Google Analytics activities will not be combined with other Google data. You may prohibit cookies from being stored by an appropriate adjustment to the settings of your browser software. However, we wish to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all of the functions provided on this website.
