We take the topic of data protection very seriously.
Here you will find important information regarding your personal data protection.
What is automatically stored by our hoster
The provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. The access data includes:
- Name of the website accessed
- date and time of access
- Amount of data transferred
- Message about successful retrieval
- Browser type and version, the user's operating system
- Referrer URL (the URL referring to our website, e.g. Google search)
- IP address and the requesting provider.
The provider uses the log data only for statistical evaluations for the purpose of the operation, security and optimisation of the offer. However, the provider reserves the right to subsequently check the log data if there is a justified suspicion of unlawful use based on concrete indications.
How we handle personal data
Personal data is information that can be used to identify a person, i.e. information that can be traced back to a person. This includes the name, email address or telephone number. But also data about preferences, hobbies, memberships or which websites were viewed by someone count as personal data. Personal data is only collected, used and passed on by the provider if this is permitted by law or if the user consents to the collection of the data.
How we protect your personal data
We have taken technical and organisational security measures to protect your personal data from loss, destruction, manipulation and unauthorised access. Our security measures are continuously revised and optimised in line with technological developments.
When you use a service on our website, your personal data is transmitted to us. To prevent this data from falling into the wrong hands, we encrypt it using the SSL (Secure Socket Layer) procedure. The SSL procedure is currently the most common and safest data transmission procedure on the Internet.
How the SSL procedure works
The SSL (Secure Socket Layer) process protects data that a customer sends over the Internet to a company's server. SSL provides a threefold protection:
Your input to be transmitted is encrypted.
It is ensured that the form is only sent back to the server from which it was opened.
It is checked whether the data reaches its respective recipient completely and unchanged.
SSL is always used when you see a small (usually green) lock at the bottom left of your browser's status bar.
What we store when you make a contact request
When contacting us via our contact form, the user's details are stored for the purpose of processing the enquiry and in the event that follow-up questions arise. We do not pass on this data without your consent.
What the newsletter data is used for
If you would like to receive the newsletter offered on the website, we require an e-mail address from you as well as information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the e-mail address provided and that you agree to receive the newsletter. No further data will be collected. We use this data exclusively for sending the requested information and do not pass it on to third parties.
You can revoke your consent to the storage of the data, the e-mail address and their use for sending the newsletter at any time.
Integration of third-party services and content
It may happen that third-party content, such as videos from YouTube, maps from Google Maps, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites are integrated within this online offer. This always requires that the providers of this content (hereinafter referred to as "third-party providers") are aware of the IP address of the user. Without the IP address, they could not send the content to the browser of the respective user. The IP address is therefore necessary for the presentation of this content. We endeavour to only use content whose respective providers only use the IP address to deliver the content. However, we have no influence if the third-party providers store the IP address, e.g. for statistical purposes. Insofar as this is known to us, we inform the users about this.
Why cookies may be stored on your computer
In order to make your visit to the website more attractive and to enable the use of certain functions, the website uses so-called cookies on various pages. These are small text files that are stored on your end device (e.g. mobile phone, tablet, PC). Some of the cookies used are deleted again at the end of the browser session, i.e. after you close your browser (so-called session cookies such as are you logged in?). Other cookies remain on your terminal device and make it possible to recognise your browser the next time you visit (so-called persistent cookies such as storing your login data on request). You can set your browser in such a way that you are informed about the setting of cookies and can decide for yourself whether to accept them or generally exclude their acceptance. We hereby inform you that the functionality and user comfort may be limited without cookies. You can find more information here:
Use of Google Analytics
On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website operator. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.
Earmarked use of data
We observe the principle of purpose-related data use and collect, process and store your personal data only for the purposes for which you have provided it to us. Your personal data will not be passed on to third parties without your express consent, unless this is necessary for the provision of the service or the execution of the contract. Your personal data will also only be passed on to state institutions and authorities entitled to receive information within the scope of the statutory duty to provide information or if we are obliged to provide information by a court decision.
We also take internal data protection very seriously. Our employees and the service companies commissioned by us have been obliged by us to maintain confidentiality and to comply with the provisions of data protection law.
