2. General notes and mandatory information
The operators of this website take the protection of your personal data very seriously.
We would like to point out that data transmission on the Internet (e.g. communication by email) can be subject to security gaps. It is not possible to fully protect the data against access by third parties.
Information on the data controller
The data controller responsible for data processing on this website is:
Merano Speck GmbH SRL
Peter Mitterhofer Str. 11
Phone: (+39) 04 73 – 66 83 99
The data controller is the natural or legal entity who alone or jointly with others determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data (e.g. names, email addresses or similar).
Revoking your consent to data processing
Many data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. You can revoke consent that you have already given at any time. In order to do so, you simply need to send us an informal message by email. The legality of data processing carried out up to the point of revocation remains unaffected by this revocation.
Right of objection to the competent supervisory authority
In the event of violations of data protection law, the data subject has a right of appeal to the competent supervisory authority. The competent supervisory authority in matters of data protection law is the state data protection officer of the federal state in which our company is based. A list of data protection officers and their contact details can be found at the following link: https://www.bfdi.bund.de/EN/Service/Anschriften/Laender/Laender-node.html.
Right to data portability
You have the right to have data that we process automatically on the basis of your consent or in fulfilment of a contract transmitted to you or to a third party in a common, machine-readable format. If you request the direct transmission of the data to another data controller, this will only take place insofar as it is technically feasible.
SSL or TLS encryption
This site uses SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or inquiries that you send to us as site operator. You can recognise an encrypted connection by the address line of the browser changing from “http://” to “https://” and by the padlock symbol in your browser line.
If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
Information, blocking, deletion
Within the framework of the applicable legal provisions, you have the right at any time to free information about your stored personal data, its origin and recipients, the purpose of the data processing and, if applicable, a right to correction, blocking or deletion of this data. You can contact us at any time, via the address given in the legal notice, to request these actions and to pose other questions on the subject of personal data.
Objection to advertising emails
We hereby object to the use of contact details published within the scope of the obligatory legal notice for sending unsolicited advertising and information materials. The operators of the website expressly reserve the right to take legal action in the event of the unsolicited sending of advertising information, for example by spam emails.

4. Data collection on our website
This website used so-called cookies on some web pages. Cookies do not cause any damage to your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies are used to make our website more user-friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser.
Most of the cookies we use are so-called “session cookies”. They are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your terminal device until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognise your browser the next time you visit.
You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and only allow cookies in individual cases, exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or in general and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. If cookies are deactivated, the functionality of this website may be limited.
Server log files
The provider of the web pages automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:
- Browser type and browser version
- Operating system used
- Referrer URL
- Host name of the accessing computer
- Time of server request
- IP address
This data is not merged with other data sources.
The basis for data processing is Art. 6 section 1 lit. f GDPR, which permits the processing of data for the fulfilment of a contract or pre-contractual measures.
5. Plugins and tools
Google Web Fonts
This website uses so-called web fonts provided by Google for the uniform display of fonts. When you call up a web page, your browser loads the required web fonts into your browser cache in order to display texts and fonts correctly.
For this purpose, the browser you use must connect to Google’s servers. This enables Google to know that our website has been accessed via your IP address. Google Web Fonts are used in the interest of a uniform and appealing presentation of our online web content. This constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 section 1 lit. f GDPR.
If your browser does not support web fonts, a standard font is used by your computer.
This site uses the map service Google Maps via an API. The provider is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
To use the functions of Google Maps, it is necessary to save your IP address. This information is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there.
The provider of this site has no influence over this data transmission.
Google Maps is used in the interest of an appealing presentation of our online presence and to make it easy to find the locations we indicate on the website. This constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 section 1 lit. f GDPR.
6. Our social media presences
We maintain publicly accessible profiles on social networks. The specific social networks we use can be found below. Social networks such as Facebook, Google+, etc. can generally comprehensively analyse your user behaviour when you visit their website or a website with integrated social media content (e.g. “Like” buttons or advertising banners).
Visiting our social media sites triggers numerous processing operations relevant to data protection.
If you are logged into your social media account and visit our social media presence, the operator of the social media portal can assign this visit to your user account. However, your personal data may also be collected if you are not logged in or do not have an account with the respective social media portal. In this case, data collection takes place, for example, via cookies that are stored on your terminal device or by recording your IP address.
With the help of the data collected in this way, the operators of the social media portals can create user profiles in which your preferences and interests are stored.
This allows the display of interest-based advertising to you inside and outside the respective social media presence. If you have an account with the respective social network, interest-based advertising may be displayed on all devices that you are or have been logged into.
Our social media presences are intended to ensure the broadest possible presence on the internet. This is a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 section 1 lit. f GDPR. The analysis processes initiated by the social networks may be founded on different legal bases, which are to be stated by the operators of the social networks (e.g. consent within the meaning of Art. 6 section 1 lit. a GDPR).
Data controller and assertion of rights
If you visit one of our social media sites (e.g. Facebook), we are jointly responsible with the operator of the social media platform for the data processing operations triggered during this visit. In principle, you can assert your rights (information, correction, deletion, restriction of processing, data portability and complaint) both against us and against the operator of the respective social media portal (e.g. against Facebook).
Please note that, despite being jointly responsible with the social media portal operators, we do not have full influence over the data processing operations of the social media portals. The scope of our influence is largely determined by the corporate policy of the respective provider.
The data collected directly by us via the social media presence will be deleted from our systems either as soon as the purpose for storing it no longer applies, you request us to delete it, you revoke your consent to its storage, or the purpose for storing the data no longer applies. Stored cookies remain on your terminal device until you delete them. Mandatory statutory provisions – in particular retention periods – remain unaffected.
We have a Facebook profile. The provider is Facebook Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, California 94025, USA. Facebook has certification under the EU-US Privacy Shield.
We have entered into a joint processing agreement (Controller Addendum) with Facebook. This agreement sets out which data processing operations we or Facebook are responsible for when you visit our Facebook page. You can view this agreement via the following link: https://www.facebook.com/legal/terms/page_controller_addendum.
You can adjust your advertising settings independently in your user account. To do so, click on the following link and log in:: https://www.facebook.com/settings?tab=ads.
