Responsibility for Links
All links and other references on the HERMANN’S internet pages have been carefully checked and have no illegal content to the best of our knowledge. In view of the large number of domains whose content can change daily and can thus not be checked by us, we declare explicitly that we have no influence whatever on the design and content of the linked websites.

Although we endeavour at all times to provide good, comprehensive and constantly updated information on the HERMANN’S website, we cannot give a guarantee for the accessibility, the quality of access or the manner of representation. Liability is excluded for every type of damage, including consequential damages, that could result from the use of the information published on these internet pages. Individual internet pages also refer to other internet sites for which we are not responsible for the technical quality and the quality of content. This exclusion of liability also applies to any kind of damage, including consequential damages, that could result from the use of information published on the internet pages of third parties. This exclusion of liability is part of the offering by HERMANN’S. Insofar as parts or individual phrases of this text fail to comply with applicable law, or no longer apply or do not apply in full, the validity of the remaining parts and their content remains unaffected.
If a clause in these conditions of use is or becomes invalid or incapable of implementation, the validity of the other clauses remains unaffected by this. German law applies. The place of jurisdiction is Hanover.
Collecting and Saving Personal Information
Stupidly Simple GmbH & Co. KG takes protecting your personal data very seriously and observes all applicable data protection regulations. Our Privacy Statement provides you with information about how we collect, save and use your personal information. Our fundamental focus in this respect is on treating your personal information with great care and we do not disclose it to third parties for advertising purposes. The information which you enter on the contact form on our website (first name, surname, email address and other optional details) is solely processed by HERMANN’S for the purpose of replying to your requests.
When you visit our website, your web browser automatically sends certain access data to our web server which we then save in a server log file. This data is only analysed anonymously for statistical purposes and is deleted straight after this process is completed. We cannot use this data to assign it to a particular person, nor can we compile it together with other sources of data or transmit it to third parties. Please refer to the following to see the types of data which are saved with regard to each page view: date and time of access, name of file which is requested, a report about whether the access was successful, the amount of data transmitted, the web browser and operating system which is used, the referrer URL (the previous page used to access the visited page), the search terms used when access is gained via a search engine and the hostname (IP address) of the requesting provider (visitor).
In order to design websites in such a way that it is attractive to visitors, easy to use and which enables us to make use of certain functions website representatives often use “cookies”. Cookies are small text files which are stored on the device that you are using to view this site such as, your computer, tablet or mobile phone.
The default settings of most internet browsers allow cookies to be accepted automatically. You can prevent the installation of cookies by adjusting the corresponding setting in your internet browser. In doing so, you may not be able to use all of the functions which the respective website offers to the full extent.
Usage Analysis by Google Analytics
We use Google Analytics to analyse page view data. For this purpose we transmit your personal information to Google. Google processes the data which is transmitted (your IP address, time spent visiting our website, repeated use of our website, loading times for the website, details of the web browser and operating system and the search words used when the website is clicked on following a Google search). Your IP address will be anonymised prior to transmission with the deletion of the final few numbers. Google processes this data on behalf of HERMANN’S in accordance with the standard data protection agreement stated in Section 11 BDSG [German Federal Data Protection Act]. Google has made the agreement available at the following link.
If you do not agree with the data from your visit to our website being saved then you can refuse your consent to data being collected and transmitted at any time by clicking on the following link: Google Analytics Opt-Out
In this case, a so-called opt-out cookie shall be stored in your browser, meaning that Google Analytics shall not collect any session data. Please be aware that if you delete your cookies then this also deletes the opt-out cookie meaning that you will need to reactivate it.
Most modern browsers also provide additional support in this respect and offer detailed privacy settings. If, for example, you do not want any of your personal information to be analysed at all, you can amend the settings of your web browser so that all websites are given a “do not track” request from your browser. If this setting is activated then our website will not be able to collect or transmit any of your data.
