Data privacy statement

General

These data protection provisions are based on the statutory provisions of the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) which became definitively effective as of 25 May 2018.

The operators of this website take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the statutory data protection provisions as well as this data privacy statement.
The use of our website is in principle possible without disclosing any personal data. Where personal data (e.g. last name, first name, telephone number, address or e-mail addresses) are collected on our website, this always takes place as far as possible on a voluntary basis. These data are not passed on to third parties without your explicit consent

We wish to advise you that despite all measures taken by us, the transmission of data on the Internet (e.g. in the case of a communication by e-mail) may involve gaps in security and that seamless protection of the data against third-party access cannot therefore always be guaranteed.

Cookies

This website makes use of cookies. Cookies neither cause damage to your computer nor do they contain any viruses. The creation of cookies is a way of storing data temporarily and serves to make our offering more user-friendly, efficient and secure. Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer and stored by your browser.

The cookies most frequently used by us are so-called “session cookies” that have a limited lifetime. They are automatically deleted after the end of your visit. Other cookies remain on your device until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognise you when you next visit our website and thereby offer you a better visitor experience.

You can configure your browser in such a way as to be informed about the placing of cookies. You can also specifically permit cookies only in individual cases or generally exclude them. You can also configure your browser so that cookies are automatically deleted when you close the browser window. If you deactivate cookies, the functionality of this website may be restricted.

Server log files

The hosting provider of this website automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files that your browser automatically transmits. This in particular includes:

– Browser type and version

– Operating system used

– Referrer URL

– Host name of accessing computer

– Time of server request

These data are not assigned to any specific individuals. These data are not aggregated with other sources. We reserve the right to examine these data subsequently if we become aware of any concrete indications of illegal use.

The collection of these data primarily serves to assess and prevent attempted attacks on the website. Hosting providers are also legally obliged in certain situations to be able to provide information about the origins of access to the website in order to counter criminal activities.

Forms

If you complete a form on the website, all your details will be sent to us by e-mail and additionally stored in the database to protect them against loss and enhance traceability. We will not disclose such data to third parties without your consent.

SSL encryption
For the protection of confidential data transmitted via our forms and for security reasons, we make use of SSL encryption technology. You can recognise an encrypted link by “https://” in the address line and a padlock symbol displayed in the browser. Data encrypted with SSL cannot be read by third parties during transmission.

Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, which are text files placed on users’ computers to help the website analyse how users use the site. The information about their use of this website generated by the cookie is normally transmitted to and stored on a Google server in the USA.

However, if IP anonymisation is activated on this website, the IP address of the users is shortened by Google in advance within member states of the European Union or in other states party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. The full IP address is only transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there in exceptional cases. IP anonymisation is activated on this website. Google will make use of this information on behalf of the operator of this website to analyse users’ use of the website, to compile reports about website activities and to provide the website operator with further services associated with website and Internet usage.

The IP address transmitted from your browser by Google Analytics will not be aggregated with other data from Google. Users can prevent the storage of cookies via a corresponding configuration of their browser software; however, we wish to advise users that in this case they may not be able to make full use of all the functions of this website. Users can also prevent the collection of the data generated by the cookie with regard to their use of the website (including their IP address) for Google and the processing of these data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available via the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.

Third-party providers, including Google, place advertisements on websites on the Internet. Third-party providers, including Google, use stored cookies to place advertisements on the basis of previous visits of a user to this website.

Google will not under any circumstances consolidate your IP address with any other Google data. The collection and storage of data can be revoked at any time with effect for the future. You can deactivate the use of cookies by Google via a corresponding configuration in your browser software.

Further information about data usage by Google for advertising purposes, configuration and revocation options can be found on the websites of Google: https://www.google.com/intl/de/policies/privacy/partners (“Data usage by Google when you use the websites and apps of our partners”), http://www.google.com/policies/technologies/ads (“Data usage for advertising purposes”), http://www.google.de/settings/ads (“Managing information that Google uses to display advertising to you”) and http://www.google.com/ads/preferences (“Determine which advertising Google displays to you”).

As an alternative to the browser add-on or within browsers on mobile devices, please install the Ghostery app.

By using this website, you consent to the processing of the data recorded about you by Google in the manner described above and for the purpose described above.

Integration of third-party services and contents

It is possible that third-party contents such as videos from YouTube, maps from Google Maps, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites may be integrated within this website. This always presupposes that the providers of these contents (hereinafter referred to as “third-party providers”) recognise the IP address of the users, as without the IP address they would be unable to sent the contents to the browser of the user in question. The IP address is thus essential for displaying these contents.

We endeavour only to use such contents for which the providers only use the IP address for delivery of the contents. However, we have no influence if, for example, the third-party provider uses the IP address for statistical purposes. To the extent that we are aware of this, we undertake to notify the users.

If you do not wish to disclose any data, please log out of your Google account or use a plug-in such as Ghostery to block the exchange of data. Here you will find the Google Data Privacy Statement.

Right to information, blocking and deletion

You are entitled at all times to request information free of charge about your stored personal data, in particular about their origin and recipients and the purpose of data processing. You also have a right of correction, blocking or deletion of these data.

Prohibition of unsolicited e-mails
The use of the contact details published within the framework of the imprint obligation to transmit advertising and information materials that are not explicitly requested is herewith prohibited. In the event of unsolicited dispatch of advertising information, such as via scam e-mails or by post, the operators of this site explicitly reserve the right to take legal action.
