PRIVACY POLICY

The protection and security of personal data is a high priority for us. We therefore strictly adhere to the rules of the German Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG). In the following, you will be informed about the type of data collected and the purpose for which it is used:

1. data transmission/data logging
When you visit this page, the web server automatically records log files that cannot be assigned to a specific person. These data include, for example, 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 file request of the client (file name and URL). These data are collected for the purpose of statistical analysis only. It is not passed on to third parties for commercial or non-commercial purposes.

2. 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. Provided that there are no necessary reasons in connection with a business transaction, you can revoke the previously granted approval of your personal data storage with immediate effect in writing (e.g. by e-mail or fax) at any time. Your data will not be passed on to third parties, unless disclosure is required by law.

3. information, modification 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 message immediately.

4. security of your data
Your personal data provided to us will be secured by taking all technical and organisational security measures to ensure 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.

5. note on Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc, (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; Google). The use includes the operating mode Universal Analytics. This makes it possible to assign data, sessions and interactions across multiple devices to a pseudonymous user ID and thus analyse the activities of a user across devices.

Google Analytics uses so-called cookies, text files which are stored on your computer and which enable an analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, in the event that IP anonymisation is activated on this website, your IP address will be shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other states which are party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. The IP address transmitted by your browser within the framework of Google Analytics is not merged with other data from Google. 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 for the website operator. Our legitimate interest in data processing also lies in these purposes. The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is § 15 para. 3 TMG or Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The data sent by us and linked to cookies, user IDs (e.g. user ID) or advertising IDs are automatically deleted after 14 months. Data whose retention period has been reached is automatically deleted once a month. Further information on terms of use and data protection can be found at https://www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html or https://policies.google.com/?hl=de.

You can prevent the storage of cookies by adjusting your browser software settings accordingly; however, we would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all functions of this website to their full extent. You can also prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) to Google and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser add-on. Opt-out cookies prevent the future collection of your data when visiting this website. To prevent Universal Analytics from collecting data across different devices, you must opt-out on all systems used.

6. cookies
On some of our pages, we use so-called "cookies" to make it easier for you to use our websites. These are small text files that are only stored on your hard drive for the duration of your visit to our website and are deleted again when you close your browser, depending on the settings of your browser programme. These cookies do not retrieve any information about you stored on your hard drive and do not affect your PC or your files. Most browsers are set to accept cookies automatically. However, you can deactivate the storage of cookies or set your browser to notify you when cookies are sent.
