Data protection declaration
Duty to provide information according to §5 TMG & Art. 13/14 GDPR
For us, LS telcom Ltd., the protection of personal data is much more than compliance with legal regulations. We are therefore very pleased about your interest in how we handle personal data.
The processing of personal data, such as a person's name, address, e-mail address or telephone number, is always carried out in accordance with applicable data protection law.
By means of this data protection declaration we would like to inform the public about the type, scope and purpose of the personal data collected, used and processed by us. Furthermore, we want to inform affected persons about their rights.
LS telcom Ltd. has implemented numerous technical and organizational measures to ensure the most comprehensive possible protection of personal data processed via this website.
Despite our care, security gaps can occur during internet-based data transmission, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed. For this reason, you are of course free to transmit personal data to us by alternative means, for example by telephone or post.
Purposes and legal basis of data processing - in general when visiting the website
If you use our website for purely informational purposes, do not register or otherwise provide us with information (e.g. by e-mail), we only collect data that your browser transmits to our server (so-called "server log files"). These data are processed in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR on the basis of our legitimate interest in improving the stability and functionality of our homepage. This data will not be used for any other purpose or even passed on to third parties. However, we reserve the right to subsequently analyze the log files if there are indications of illegal use.
Purposes and legal basis of data processing - Contact form or inquiries
When you contact us (e.g. directly, via contact form or e-mail), personal data is collected. This data is stored and used exclusively for the purpose of responding to your request and the associated technical and organizational administration. The legal basis for processing the data is our legitimate interest in responding to your request in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR. If your establishment of contact has the conclusion of a contract for the purpose, then additional legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 exp. 1 lit. b GDPR. Your data will be deleted after final processing of your inquiry; this is the case if it can be inferred that the affected facts have been finally clarified and if no legal storage obligations prohibit us from deleting them.
Purposes and legal basis of data processing - Newsletter function
After registering for our e-mail newsletter, we will regularly send you information about our company and our offers. The only mandatory information for sending the newsletter is your e-mail address. Providing further data is voluntary and will be used to contact you personally. We use the so-called double opt-in procedure for sending the newsletter. This means that we will not send you an e-mail newsletter until you have expressly confirmed to us that you agree to the sending of newsletters. We will then send you a confirmation e-mail asking you to confirm that you wish to receive future newsletters by clicking on an appropriate link.
By clicking on the confirmation link, you give us your consent to the use of your personal data in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR. When you register for the newsletter, we store your IP address entered by the Internet Service Provider (ISP) as well as the date and time of registration so that we can trace any possible misuse of your e-mail address at a later point in time. The data collected by us when registering for the newsletter will be used exclusively for the purpose of addressing you in advertising by means of the newsletter. You can unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time via the link provided in the newsletter. After your cancellation, your e-mail address will be deleted from our newsletter distribution list immediately, unless you have expressly consented to further use of your data or we reserve the right to use data beyond this, which is permitted by law and about which we inform you in this declaration.

By using cookies, LS telcom Ltd. can provide users of this website with more user-friendly services that would not be possible without cookies.
The person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time by means of an appropriate setting of the web browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Furthermore, cookies that have already been set can be deleted at any time via an web browser or other software programs. This is possible in all common web browsers.

The data controller has integrated the Google Analytics component (with anonymization function) on this website. Google Analytics is a web analytics service. Web analysis is the elicitation, collection and evaluation of data on the behaviour of visitors to websites. A web analysis service collects, among other things, data on the website from which a person concerned has accessed a website (so-called referrer), which subpages of the website have been accessed or how often and for how long a subpage has been viewed. A web analysis is mainly used to optimize a website and for cost-benefit analysis of Internet advertising.
The Google Analytics component is operated by Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.
The data controller uses the suffix "_gat.anonymizeIp" for the web analysis via Google Analytics. By means of this addition, Google shortens and anonymizes the IP address of the Internet connection of the person concerned when accessing our website from a member state of the European Union or from another state party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.
The purpose of the Google Analytics component is to analyse the flow of visitors to our website. Google uses the data and information collected to evaluate the use of our website, among other things, to compile online reports for us that show the activities on our website and to provide other services in connection with the use of our website.
Google Analytics places a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. What cookies are has already been explained above. By setting the cookie, Google is enabled to analyse the use of our website. Each time one of the individual pages of this website is called up, which is operated by the data controller and on which a Google Analytics component has been integrated, the web browser on the information technology system of the person concerned is automatically prompted by the respective Google Analytics component to transmit data to Google for the purpose of online analysis. As part of this technical process, Google obtains knowledge of personal data, such as the IP address of the person concerned, which serves Google, among other things, to trace the origin of visitors and clicks and subsequently enable commission statements.
Cookies are used to store personal information, such as access time, the location from which access came and the frequency of visits to our website by the person concerned. Whenever you visit our website, this personal data, including the IP address of the Internet connection used by the person concerned, is transmitted to Google in the United States of America. This personal data is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may disclose personal data collected through the technical process to third parties.
The person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time, as already described above, by means of an appropriate setting of the web browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the web browser used would also prevent Google from placing a cookie on the information technology system of the person concerned. In addition, a cookie already set by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time via the web browser or other software programs.
The data controller has integrated Google reCAPTCHA on this website.
Google reCAPTCHA is a funcion of Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland ("Google"). This function is primarily used to distinguish whether an input is made by a natural person or is abused by machine and automated processing. The service includes the sending of the IP address and possibly other data required by Google for the reCAPTCHA service to Google and is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO on the basis of our legitimate interest in determining individual ownership on the Internet and the prevention of abuse and spam. The use of Google reCAPTCHA may also involve the transmission of personal data to the servers of Google LLC. in the USA.
The controller has integrated Google fonts into this website. Google provides free fonts that can be used when designing websites.
This site uses web fonts provided by Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA ("Google") to uniformly display fonts. When a page is called, a person's browser loads the required Web fonts into the browser cache to display texts and fonts correctly.
For this purpose, the browser used by the person concerned must connect to Google's servers. This gives Google knowledge that the relevant website has been accessed via the IP address of the person concerned. The use of Google Web Fonts takes place in the interest of a uniform and appealing representation of the on-line offers. This represents a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. If the person's browser does not support web fonts, a default font is used by the person's computer.
Google LLC., based in the USA, is certified for the US-European data protection agreement "Privacy Shield", which guarantees compliance with the data protection level applicable in the EU.
This site uses Font Awesome for the uniform display of fonts and symbols. The provider is Fonticons, Inc., 6 Porter Road Apartment 3R, Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA.
When you call up a page, your browser loads the required fonts into your browser cache in order to display texts, fonts and symbols correctly. For this purpose, the browser you are using must connect to Font Awesome's servers. This enables Font Awesome to know that your IP address has been used to access this website. The use of Font Awesome is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. We have a legitimate interest in the uniform presentation of the typeface on our website.
If a corresponding consent was requested (e.g., a consent to store cookies), the processing is carried out exclusively on the basis of Art. 6Abs. 1 lit. a DSGVO; the consent can be revoked at any time.
If your browser does not support Font Awesome, a default font from your computer will be used.
The use of the Twitter plugin is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the greatest possible visibility in the social media. If a corresponding consent has been requested, the processing is carried out exclusively on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO; the consent can be revoked at any time.
The data transfer to the USA is based on the standard contractual clauses of the EU Commission.Details can be found here: https://gdpr.twitter.com/en/controller-to-controller-transfers.html.

As part of this technical process, Facebook is informed about which specific subpage of our website is visited by the person concerned.
If the person concerned is logged on to Facebook at the same time, Facebook recognizes which specific subpage of our website the person concerned visits with every visit to our website by the person concerned and for the entire duration of the respective stay on our website. This information is collected by the Facebook component and assigned by Facebook to the respective Facebook account of the person concerned. If the person concerned clicks one of the Facebook buttons integrated on our website, for example the "Like" button, or the person concerned makes a comment, Facebook assigns this information to the personal Facebook user account of the person concerned and stores this personal data.
