Privacy Policy

The controller within the meaning of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is:
Nova GmbH
Bernd Baucks
Alte Straße 5
96482 Ahorn, Germany
+49 (0)9561 816-0

The controller, alone or jointly with others, determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data.

Collection of general information

When you access our website, information of a general nature is collected automatically. This information (server log files) includes the type of web browser, the operating system used, the domain name of your Internet service provider and similar data. None of this information allows the controller to draw any conclusions regarding your person. This information is technically required to correctly deliver the content you request from our web pages and is mandatory when using the Internet. Anonymous information of this kind is statistically analysed to optimise our Internet presence and the underlying technology.
This data is not combined with data from other sources. The basis for data processing is Art. 6 (1) lit. b) GDPR.

SSL encryption

We use state-of-the-art encryption (e.g. SSL) via HTTPS to protect your data during transmission.

Contact form

If you contact us via email or using our contact form, the information you provide is stored for the purpose of processing your request and for any follow-up questions. This data will not be shared with third parties without your consent. Processing of the data entered in the contact form is therefore carried out exclusively on the basis of your consent as per Art. 6 (1) lit. a) GDPR.


Our website uses cookies. These are small text files that your web browser saves to your end device. Cookies help make our website more user-friendly, effective and secure. Some of the cookies we use are ‘session cookies’, which are automatically deleted after your browser session ends. Other cookies remain on your device until you delete them. These cookies help us identify you when you return to our website.
Modern web browsers enable you to monitor, restrict or reject the use of cookies. Many web browsers can be configured to automatically delete cookies when the program is closed. Disabling cookies may restrict some of the functions of our website.
Cookies used to facilitate electronic communication processes or that are necessary to provide the specific functionality you request are installed on the basis of Art. 6 (1) lit. f) GDPR. As the operator of this website, we have a legitimate interest in saving cookies to ensure the fault-free and seamless provisioning of our services. If any other cookies are set, these will be covered separately in this privacy policy.

Deleting or blocking data

We adhere to principles of data avoidance and data economy. Therefore, we only store your personal data until the purposes stated here have been achieved or to comply with the many storage periods prescribed by law. The data concerned is blocked or deleted routinely as per statutory regulations once the purpose concerned no longer exists or relevant terms have elapsed.

Your rights as the data subject

You have the following basic rights:

  1. Whenever your personal data is processed, you have the right to receive information about the stored data (Art. 15 GDPR).
    2. If incorrect personal data is processed, you have the right to have this data corrected (Art. 16 GDPR).
    3. If the legal conditions have been met, then you can request deletion or restriction of how your personal data is processed and object to the processing of your personal data (Art. 17, 18 and 21 GDPR).
    4. You also have the right to the portability of your personal data to another controller (person or organisation) (Art. 20 GDPR).
    5. If you wish to exercise any of the rights outlined above, our company will check to determine whether the legal conditions have been met.
    6. Moreover, you have the right to appeal to the Bavarian Data Protection Commissioner (Art. 77 GDPR).
    Furthermore, you have the right to information on the purposes of the data processing as well as the legal basis for this (Art. 6 GDPR).
    There are no plans to transfer your personal data to a third country.
    We never use automated decision-making when processing personal data.
    Proof of identity is required for information on personal data. Therefore, we do not provide this information by phone or email.

Amendment to our data privacy policy

We reserve the right to amend this privacy policy so that it complies with legal requirements at all times, or to implement changes to our services in the privacy policy, for example when launching new services. The new privacy policy will then apply the next time you visit the website.
