Privacy Policy

Data Protection Statement

The protection and security of personal data is one of our top priorities. This is why we strictly adhere to the regulations specified in the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG). The following provides information on which types of data are recorded and the purpose for which data is collected:

1. Transferring Data / Data Logging

When visiting this site, the web server automatically records log files, which cannot be traced to a specific person. For example, this data includes the type of browser and version, operating system used, referrer URL (the previously visited site), IP address of the requesting computer, access date and time of the server request, and the client file request (file name and URL). This data is only collected for statistical analysis. Data is not transferred to third parties for commercial or non-commercial purposes.

2. Using Personal Data

Personal data is only collected or processed if you volunteer this information, e.g. within a request. Unless it is necessary for reasons relating to a business transaction, you can revoke previously granted approval for storing your personal data in writing (e.g. by e-mail or by fax) at any time with immediate effect. Your data is not transferred to third parties, unless this is required due to legal regulations.

3. Disclosing, Changing and Deleting Your Data

In accordance with law, you can write to us at any time to find out whether and which data is stored by us. You will then receive a message regarding this immediately.

4. Data Security

By adhering to technical and organisational security measures, we ensure that unauthorised third parties cannot access personal data you have made available to us. When sending very sensitive data or information, it is recommended to do so by post, as it is not possible to ensure full data security by e-mail.

5. Information on Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service from Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses cookies, i.e. text files which are saved on your computer and enable you to perform an analysis of the website. The information created by the cookies from your use of this website (including your IP address) is transferred to a Google server in the U.S.A. and saved there. Google will use this information to analyse your use of the website, compile reports on your website activities for website operators and provide further services relating to website and Internet use. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where prescribed by law or if third parties process this data on behalf of Google. Google will never associate your IP address with other data from Google. You can prevent cookies from being installed by using the relevant setting in your browser’s software; however, please note that you will not be able to use all of this website’s functions to their full capacity in this instance. By using this website, you agree to data about you gathered by Google being processed in the way and for the purpose described above.

6. Cookies

On some of our pages, we use “session cookies” to make it easier for you to use our websites. These are small text files which are saved on your hard drive for the duration of your visit on our website and, depending on the setting in your browser program, are deleted once the browser is closed. These cookies do not access any information saved about you on your hand drive and do not affect your PC or files. Most browsers are set up so that cookies are automatically accepted. However, you can deactivate the saving of cookies or set up your browser so that it informs you of the sending of cookies.

7. Changes to These Data Protection Regulations

From time to time, we will update these regulations for protecting your personal data. You should read these regulations every so often to keep up-to-date on how we protect your data and continue to improve the content on our website. If we make any considerable changes to how we collect, use and/or transfer personal data you have made available to us, we will make you aware of these changes with a clearly visible notice on the website. By using the website, you agree to the regulations in this data protection statement.
