We take data protection seriously!

The protection of your privacy when processing personal data is an important concern for us. When you visit our website, our web servers store the IP address of your Internet service provider, the website from which you visit us, the websites you visit on our website and the date and duration of your visit. This information is absolutely necessary for the technical transmission of the web pages and secure server operation. A personalized evaluation of this data does not take place.

If you send us data by contact form, these data are stored on our servers in the course of data backup. Your data will only be used by us to process your request. Your data will be treated strictly confidential. The data will not be passed on to third parties.

Personal Information

Personal data are data about your person. These include your name, address and email address. You also do not have to reveal any personal data to visit our website. In some cases we need your name and address as well as further information to be able to offer you the desired service.

The same applies in the event that we supply you with information material on request or if we answer your enquiries. In these cases we will always point this out to you. Furthermore, we only store the data that you have transmitted to us automatically or voluntarily.

If you use one of our services, we usually only collect the data that is necessary to be able to offer you our service. We may ask you for further information, but it is voluntary. Whenever we process personal data, we do so to provide you with our services or to pursue our commercial goals.

Automatically stored data

Server-Log-Files

The provider of the pages automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us.
These are:

  • Date and time of the request
  • Name of the requested file
  • Page from which the file was requested
  • Access status (file transferred, file not found, etc.)
  • Web browser and operating system used
  • complete IP address of the requesting computer
  • transferred data volume

These data are not combined with other data sources. Processing is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 letter f DSGVO on the basis of our legitimate interest in improving the stability and functionality of our website.

For reasons of technical security, in particular to prevent attempts to attack our web server, these data are temporarily stored by us. It is not possible for us to draw conclusions about individual persons on the basis of this data. After seven days at the latest, the data is made anonymous by shortening the IP address at domain level, so that it is no longer possible to establish a reference to the individual user. The data is also processed in anonymous form for statistical purposes; it is not compared with other data stocks or passed on to third parties, even in excerpts. Only in the context of our server statistics, which we publish every two years in our activity report, a representation of the number of page views takes place.

Cookies

When you visit our website, we may store information on your computer in the form of cookies. Cookies are small files that are transferred from an Internet server to your browser and stored on its hard drive. Only the Internet protocol address is stored – no personal data. This information stored in the cookies allows us to automatically recognize you the next time you visit our website, which makes your use easier. The legal basis for the use of cookies is the legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.

Of course, you can also visit our website without accepting cookies. If you do not want your computer to be recognized on your next visit, you can also refuse the use of cookies by changing the settings in your browser to “refuse cookies”. You will find the respective procedure in the operating instructions of your respective browser. If you refuse the use of cookies, however, there may be restrictions in the use of certain areas of our website.
