Privacy policy

Data protection

The operators of these pages take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the legal data protection regulations and this data protection declaration.

The use of our website is generally possible without providing personal data. If personal data is collected (for example name, address or e-mail addresses), the input of such data takes place voluntarily, as far as possible. This data will not be passed on to third parties without your express consent.

We would like to point out that data transmission over the Internet (e.g. communication by email) can have security gaps. A complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.

Cookies

Some of these Internet pages use so-called cookies. Cookies do not cause any damage to your computer and do not contain any viruses. Cookies serve to make our website more user-friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser.

Most of the cookies we use are so-called “session cookies”. They are automatically deleted at the end of your visit on our page. Other cookies remain stored on your device until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognize your browser the next time you visit our website.

You can set your browser so that you are informed about cookies being placed and only allow cookies in individual cases. You can refuse to accept cookies in certain cases or generally and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. When cookies are deactivated, the functionality of this website may be limited.

Server LogFiles

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:

  • browser type and browser version
  • operating system
  • referrer URL
  • host name of the accessing computer
  • time of the server request

This data cannot be assigned to specific persons. None of this data will be merged with other data sources. We reserve the right to check data subsequently if we become aware of concrete indications of an illegal use.

Contact form

If you send us an inquiry using our contact form, your details from the contact form, including your provided contact data, will be stored for the purpose of processing the inquiry and to answer follow-up questions. We will not pass on this data without your consent.

Google Analytics

This website uses functions of the web analysis service Google Analytics. The provider is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

Google Analytics uses so-called cookies. These are text files that are stored on your computer and enable an analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by cookies concerning the use of the online offer by users is generally transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

IP Anonymization

We have activated the IP anonymization function on this website. This means that Google will shorten the IP address of users within member states of the European Union or in other states party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area before transmission to the USA. 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 to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide the website operator with other services relating to website and Internet use. The IP address transmitted by the user’s browser is not merged with other Google data.

You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser. However please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. You can also prevent Google from collecting and processing data generated by the cookie and relating to your use of the website (including your IP address) by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de

Contract data processing

We have signed an agreement on contract data processing with Google and fully implement the strict requirements of the German data protection authorities for the use of Google Analytics.

Demographic features on Google Analytics

This website uses the “demographic features” function of Google Analytics. This allows the creation of reports that contain information on age, gender and interests of site visitors. This data comes from interest-related advertising by Google and from visitor data from third-party providers. This data cannot be assigned to a specific person. You can disable this feature at any time via the ad settings in your Google Account or generally prohibit Google Analytics from collecting your data as described in “Objection to data collection”.

SSL encryption

For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as requests you send to us as a site operator, this site uses SSLencryption. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of your browser changes from “http://” to “https://” and by the lock symbol in your browser line.

If SSL encryption is activated, your transmitted data cannot be read by third parties.

Right to information, deletion, blocking

You have the right to free of charge information relating to your stored personal data, its origin and recipients and the purpose of data processing as well as a right to correction, blocking or deletion of your data. If you have any further questions on the subject of personal data you can contact us at any time at the address given in the imprint.
