Data Protection and Privacy
Although we carefully check the content of sites we link to, we accept no liability for the content provided on websites linked to from our website. Responsibility for the content on websites we link to is solely that of the proprietors of those websites.
The operator of this website, cma audio GmbH, hereafter referred to as “the operator”, undertakes to keep your data secure in compliance with data protection law and to adhere to the provisions of said law. Personal data is only gathered to the extent technically required for the operation of this website. We will never sell your data to third parties, nor will we transmit them to any third parties unless judicially compelled to.
User data/Personal data
Below is a summary that shows you what data we gather and what we use it for.
For technical reasons, the software on our homepage stores all data you provide voluntarily (e.g. when you register, when you leave comments etc.). This especially applies to links, comments, user names, email addresses, passwords (encoded and not readable by us or third parties not using criminal means to decipher them) and any other data entered voluntarily as well as content that you deliberately transmit to us. You have the option to enter data that does not identify you. If our service is misused, attacked or used to publish illegal content, we will provide the data transmitted to us if judicially directed to do so.
In addition, information/emails provided via the Contact form are stored on the web server (to document communication and to enable us to respond to questions more quickly), together with your IP. If asked to do so in writing, we will delete these emails immediately.

Data protection policy for Facebook plug-ins
Our website uses plug-ins provided by Facebook, a social network, of 1601 South California Avenue, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA. The Facebook plug-ins are recognisable through their use of the Facebook logo or the “Like” button. The following link provides an overview of Facebook plug-ins: http://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/.
When you visit our website, the plug-in sets up a direct connection between your browser and Facebook’s servers. This allows Facebook to see the IP address from which you have accessed our site. If you click on a Facebook “Like” button while signed in to your Facebook account, you can
link from your Facebook profile to our website. This allows Facebook to correlate your visit to our site with your user account. We wish to draw your attention to the fact that we, as the website operator, have knowledge neither about the content of the data being transmitted nor about how they are used by Facebook. For more information, please see Facebook’s data protection policy at http://de-de.facebook.com/policy.php.
If you don’t want Facebook to be able to connect your visit to our site with your Facebook account, please sign out of your Facebook account before visiting out site.
Data Protection Policy for Google +1
Gathering and transmission of data: You can use the Google +1 button to publish information worldwide. The Google +1 button provides you and other users with personalised content from Google and our partners. Google stores the information for which you have given +1 as well as information about the page that you were visiting when you clicked +1. Your +1s may be displayed together with your profile name and your photo in Google services such as search results or in your Google profile, or at other locations on websites and adverts on the internet. Google stores information about your +1 activities to improve Google services for you and others. To use the Google +1 button, you require a globally visible, public Google profile that must at least contain the name chosen for that profile. This name is used for all Google services. In some cases, this name may be replaced by another name used by you to share content via your Google account. The identity of your Google profile is accessible to users who know your email address or have other information that can identify you.
Use of gathered information: Aside from the purposes detailed above, the information you provide will be used according to the currently applicable Google data protection guidelines. Google may publish collated statistics about users’ +1 activities and/or provide them to users and partners such as publishers, advertisers or associated websites.
