TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF USE
Dauphin HumanDesign Group GmbH & Co. KG ("Dauphin") provides you with internet services free of charge and exclusively on the basis of the following terms and conditions:
The content and information ("Information") provided on Dauphin’s websites have been compiled with the very greatest of care. However, Dauphin accepts no responsibility for the Information provided being up to date, correct or complete or for the quality of this Information and its suitability for specific purposes (see 2.1).
The Information provided on the websites may contain technical inaccuracies, typographic errors and colours and designs which deviate from the original. Dauphin will periodically make changes to this Information. Dauphin expressly reserves this right without the changes made being recognisable in individual cases.
1. Data protection:
The security of personal data such as names, addresses, telephone numbers or e-mail addresses is a matter of great importance to Dauphin. For this reason, our websites are operated in accordance with the laws regarding data protection and data security.
1.1 Personal data:
No personal data are collected via our websites unless we have obtained permission from the user. The user decides whether or not they would like to make available personal data for registration purposes, surveys or the like. By providing their personal data, users agree to this personal data being processed, used and stored within the Dauphin HumanDesign® Group for the purposes of processing enquiries or orders and for maintaining the necessary level of business contact (collection of data only for specific purposes) in accordance with the German data-protection regulations, in particular those set out in the German Federal Data Protection Act and the German Telemedia Act. A user’s personal data are passed on to third parties, e.g. Deutsche Post AG, only insofar as they are necessary for processing purposes. Our members of staff have a duty not to disclose confidential information and to comply with the data secrecy regulations set out in Section 5 of the German Federal Data Protection Act.
1.2 Information which is collected automatically but is not personal data:
If you access the Dauphin websites, information which cannot be assigned to a specific person (e.g. the internet browser and operating system used, the domain name of the website from which you accessed the Dauphin websites, the number of visits, the average amount of time spent on the websites, the pages viewed) may occasionally be collected automatically (i.e. not as a result of having registered). The Dauphin Group uses this information in order to determine the attractiveness of its websites and to improve their content.
1.3 User profiles / consent
User profiles are not created. If we intend to create user profiles in the future, we will inform you about our plans promptly after you visit our website so that you have the opportunity to object to this. Then we will of course take account of your wish and not create any such profile for you. We will then only collect, process or utilise data for advisory, promotional or market research purposes if you have given us your consent to do this beforehand. It goes without saying that you can withdraw consent once you have given it at any time.
1.4 Right to information
On request, we can also notify you in writing about whether any personal data about you is stored and if so which data.
Through implementing appropriate technical and organisational security measures which comply with the regulations set out in the German Federal Data Protection Act, we ensure that your data are protected against manipulation, unauthorised access by unauthorised persons and unauthorised disclosure. Our security measures are constantly improved in line with the very latest technological developments.
2.1 Non-binding nature of the information
Dauphin makes no assurances as to the suitability for specific purposes of any information including details of products provided on the websites. The information is non-binding and is provided to the user without any liability for material defects. The information provided on the websites does not constitute a legally binding offer. The information is not intended to replace detailed, individual advice as a basis for deciding whether or not to make a purchase. Any products and technical features which are shown and described are merely examples which can vary. Dauphin reserves the right to make changes, in particular constructional changes and changes to models, without giving prior notice. Any specifications and information relating to the dimensions and colours of the products shown are subject to change. Dauphin reserves the right to add supplementary information to its websites, to make changes to the information on its websites or to delete information from its websites at any time.
Dauphin does not assume any liability that information, software or any other materials that are provided on the websites for download and are procured via Dauphin's websites do not contain any viruses or other harmful components.
2.2 Limitation of liability
Any claims for compensation against Dauphin, irrespective of their legal basis, arising from the use of the websites provided by Dauphin shall be excluded. This shall not apply in cases where there is mandatory liability, e.g. in accordance with the German Product Liability Law and in cases where there is wilful intent, gross negligence or breach of essential contractual obligations. However, any compensation for breach of essential contractual obligations shall be limited to damages which are foreseeable and typical under the terms of the contract, unless these damages result from wilful intent or gross negligence. No change in the burden of proof to the detriment of the user of the websites shall be associated with the above regulations.
2.3 Liability for links:
The Dauphin websites contain direct or indirect references to external internet pages ("Links") which lie outside Dauphin’s area of responsibility. These external websites contain information provided by natural and/or legal persons who are legally independent of Dauphin. Dauphin is neither responsible for the content of these websites nor does it approve, support or confirm such information contained on external internet pages or the addresses which are listed and linked on these pages. Please bear in mind that different regulations, particularly with regard to data protection, may apply to any information provided by third parties.
3. Copyright / trademark protection:
Unless identified otherwise, any texts, images, graphics, objects, files and any other information published on the internet pages ("Information") is copyright of Dauphin. Users of the Dauphin websites are entitled to use and copy the Information made available on these websites and to process this Information further without making changes to it provided that

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies”, text files which are stored on your computer and enable the website to analyse how you use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on a server in the United States. 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. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. You may prevent the installation of cookies by selecting the appropriate setting on your browser software; however we point out to you that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. By using this website, you consent to the processing of data about you by Google in the manner and for the purpose set out above.
Permission to collect and store data may be withdrawn at any time with effect for the future. In view of the discussion about the use of analytical tools with complete IP addresses, we would like to point out that this website uses Google Analytics with the advanced "_anonymizeIp()" option and thus IP addresses are only further processed in an abbreviated manner so as to exclude direct reference to people.
If your web browser (e.g. when calling up our website on your smartphone) should not support the above link to Google's browser add-on, you can also prevent the collection of data by Google Analytics by clicking on the following link. An opt-out cookie preventing your data from being collected when you visit this website in the future will then be set: deactivate Google Analytics
Further information concerning the terms and conditions of use and data privacy can be found at http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/gb.html or at https://www.google.de/intl/en_uk/policies/.
Please note that on this website, Google Analytics code is supplemented by “gat._anonymizeIp();” to ensure an anonymized collection of IP addresses (so called IP-masking).
