Data Privacy statement for www.mha-zentgraf.com


This privacy statement explains to users the nature, extent and purpose, the collection and use of personal data by the responsible provider on this website (referred to as “the offer” below).

The legal basis of data protection can be found in the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and the Telemedia Act (TMG) of the Federal Republic of Germany.

Access data / Server logs

The provider (or their internet provider) collects access data on each access to the offer (so-called server log files).

The collected access data includes the retrieved Web page name or file, the date and time of access, the transferred data volume, report of successful retrieval, browser type/version, operating system of the user, referrer URL (previously visited page), IP address and the requesting provider.

The provider uses the data for statistical analysis, for the purpose of the operation, safety and optimization of the offer.

However, the provider reserves the right to check the log data later if there is reasonable suspicion of unlawful use due to concrete indications.

Handling of personal data

Personal information is information that will help to make a person identifiable, i.e., data that can be traced back to a person. This includes the name, email address or telephone number. However, other data such as preferences, memberships or which web pages were viewed by someone can count among personal data.

We will collect personal data, in the sense of the previous paragraph, only where it is legal or where it is explicitly allowed by the users.

Getting in touch

While contacting the provider (for example, using a contact form or e-mail) the details of the user are stored for editing the request and for the case that follow-up questions arise. The contact data will not be disclosed to third parties without your explicit consent.

Comments and posts

When users leave comments or other contributions, their IP addresses are stored. This is done for the safety of the provider, in case someone writes illegal content in comments and contributions (insults, banned political propaganda, etc.). In this case, the provider may be held responsible even for the comment or post and is therefore interested in the identity of the author.

Integration of services and content of third parties

It is possible that within this online offer, content from third parties such as YouTube videos, Googlemaps, fonts or graphics from other websites are integrated. This always requires that the provider of such content (hereinafter referred to as “third-party”) obtains the IP address of the user. Without this IP address they could not provide the content back to the browser of the user. We work to ensure that third-party content providers do not use the user's IP address for any other purpose than to provide that content. However, we have no control over the use of the IP address by the third-party, e.g., for statistical purposes. If the third-party provider concedes to using the IP addresses for statistical purposes or otherwise, we will notify our users of this use.


Cookies are small files that allow to store device specific information on the user device (PC, smartphone, etc.) They help to improve the usability of websites and thus improve the user experience (e.g., by storing session information). They also often serve to capture statistical data about the website usage that can be analyzed. Users can influence the use of cookies. Most browsers have an option that limits the storage of cookies or prevents it completely. Note, however, that the use of a website and especially the ease of use without cookies is often limited.

Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; “Google”). We use this service in the operating mode “Universal Analytics”. This allows data, user sessions and user interactions to be related to a device-independent, pseudonymous user ID and, thereby, analyze user activity over multiple devices.

Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. 
Since the „IP anonymization“ option was activated for our website, Google will truncate/anonymize the last octet of the IP address for Member States of the European Union as well as for other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. 
Only in exceptional cases, the full IP address is sent to and shortened by Google servers in the USA. 
On behalf of the website provider Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website provider. This data processing and these evaluations are in our legitimate interest. The legal foundation for the use of Google Analytics is § 15 para. 3 TMG or Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. Sessions and campaigns are terminated after a certain amount of time. By default, sessions will end after 30 minutes of inactivity and campaigns after six months. Campaigns will never be set to be longer than two years. For more information about Terms of Use and Privacy, please visit https://www.google.com/analytics/terms/en.html or https://policies.google.com/?hl=en.

You can configure your browser software to refuse the storage of cookies; however, please note that if you do so, you may not be able to use all the features of this website to the fullest extent possible. You may also prevent the collection of information, generated by cookies and relating to your usage of this website, including your IP address, to Google, and the processing of such data by Google, by downloading and installing the browser add-on. Opt-out cookies prevent future collection of your data during visits of this website. To prevent Universal Analytics tracking across devices, you must opt-out on all systems you use. If you click here, the opt-out cookie will be set: Disable Google Analytics
