Data protection

General privacy policy

The protection and security of personal data is a high priority for us. Therefore, we strictly adhere to the rules of the General Data Protection Regulation (DSGVO). In the following, you will be informed about what kind of data is collected and for what purpose.

Data transmission / data logging

When visiting this site, the web server automatically records log files that cannot be assigned to a specific person. This data includes, for example, the browser type and version, operating system used, referrer URL (the previously visited page), IP address of the requesting computer, access date and time of the server request and the client's file request (file name and URL). This data is only collected for the purpose of statistical evaluation. It is not passed on to third parties for commercial or non-commercial purposes.

Use of personal data

Personal data is only collected or processed if you provide this information voluntarily, e.g. in the context of an enquiry. Unless there are necessary reasons in connection with a business transaction, you may at any time revoke the previously granted consent to your personal data storage with immediate effect in writing (e.g. by e-mail or fax). Your data will not be disclosed to third parties unless disclosure is required by law.

Information, amendment and deletion of your data

In accordance with applicable law, you can ask us in writing at any time whether and which personal data we have stored about you. You will receive a corresponding notification immediately.

Security of your data

Your personal data provided to us will be secured by taking all technical as well as organisational security measures so that they are inaccessible to unauthorised third parties. When sending very sensitive data or information, it is advisable to use the postal service, as complete data security cannot be guaranteed by e-mail.

Your data subject rights

You can exercise the following rights at any time using the contact details provided by our data protection officer:
- information about your data stored by us and how it is processed,
- correction of incorrect personal data,
- deletion of your data stored by us,
- restriction of data processing if we are not yet allowed to delete your data due to legal obligations,
- objection to the processing of your data by us and
- data portability if you have consented to data processing or have concluded a contract with us.
If you have given us consent, you can revoke this at any time with effect for the future. You can lodge a complaint with the supervisory authority responsible for you at any time. Your competent supervisory authority depends on the federal state of your residence, your work or the alleged violation. A list of the supervisory authorities (for the non-public sector) with address can be found at: https://www.bfdi.bund.de/DE/Infothek/Anschriften_Links/anschriften_links-node.html.

Note on Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc ("Google"). Google Analytics uses "cookies", which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyse how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

IP anonymisation

We use the function "Activation of IP anonymisation" on this website. However, this means that your IP address is shortened beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. 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.

Order data processing

We have concluded an order data processing contract with Google and fully implement the strict requirements of the German data protection authorities when using Google Analytics.

SSL encryption

For reasons of security and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as enquiries that you send to us as the site operator, this site uses SSL encryption.

If SSL encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.
