Privacy Policy

We take data protection seriously

The protection of your privacy when processing personal data is an important concern for us.
When you visit our website, our web servers store the IP address of your Internet service provider, the website from which you visit us, the web pages you visit on our website and the date and duration of your visit. This information is absolutely necessary for the technical transmission of the web pages and secure server operation. A personalised evaluation of this data does not take place.

If you send us data using the contact form, this data is stored on our servers in the course of data backup. Your data will only be used by us for processing your request. Your data will be treated in strictest confidence. It will not be forwarded to third parties.

Personal data

Personal data is data about your person. This includes your name, your address and your email address. You actually do not have to reveal any personal data to visit our website. In certain cases, we require your name and address, as well as other information to be able to offer you the desired service.

The same applies if we supply you with informative material on request, or if we answer your enquiries. In these cases we always point this out to you. In addition, we only save data that you have automatically or voluntarily sent to us.

When you use one of our services, we usually only collect the data which is necessary in order to be able to offer you our service. We may ask you for further information, but it is voluntary.
Whenever we process personal data, we do so to provide you with our services or to pursue our commercial goals.

Automatically saved data

Server log files


The provider of the site automatically collects and saves information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically sends to us. These are:

  • Date and time of the request
  • Name of the requested file
  • Page from which the file was requested
  • Access status (file transmitted, file not found, etc.)
  • Web browser and operating system used
  • Complete IP address of the requesting computer
  • Transmitted data quantity

This data is not combined with other data sources. Processing is carried out in accordance with Article 6 (1) (f) of the GDPR on the basis of our legitimate interest in improving the stability and functionality of our website.  

For reasons of technical security, in particular to prevent attempts to attack our web server, this data is temporarily stored by us. It is not possible for us to draw conclusions about individual persons on the basis of this data. After seven days at the latest, the data is anonymised by shortening the IP address at domain level, so that it is no longer possible to establish a reference to the individual user. The data is also processed in anonymous form for statistical purposes; it is not compared with other databases or forwarded to third parties, even in excerpts. Only in the context of our server statistics, which we publish every two years in our activity report, does a presentation of the number of page views take place.

Cookies

When you visit our internet site we will may save information on your computer in the form of cookies. Cookies are small files which are transferred from an internet server to your browser and stored on its hard disk. Only the Internet Protocol address is stored here - no personal data.
This information, which is saved in the cookies allows us automatically to recognise you when you next visit our website, which makes usage easier for you. The legal basis for the use of cookies is the legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR.

Naturally, you can also visit our web pages without accepting cookies. If you do not want your computer to be recognized on your next visit, you can also reject the use of cookies by changing the settings in your browser to "Reject cookies". You will find the respective procedure in the operating instructions of your corresponding browser. However, if you refuse cookies, this may lead to a limitation in the use of some areas of our web pages.

Google Tag Manager

This website uses Google Tag Manager. The Tag Manager does not record any personal data.
The tool triggers other tags, which, in turn, may collect data. Google Tag Manager does not access this data. If a deactivation was undertaken at domain or cookie level, this remains for all tracking tags which are implemented with Google Tag Manager. Google's privacy policy for this tool can be found here: https://www.google.de/tagmanager/use-policy.html.

 Google Analytics with Anonymization function

We use Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereinafter "Google". Google Analytics uses so-called cookies, text files which are stored on your computer and thereby enable an analysis of your use of the website.

The information generated by these cookies, such as the time, location and frequency of your website visits, including your IP address are sent to Google in the USA and stored there.

On our website we use Google Analytics with the suffix "_gat._anonymizeIp". In this case, Google will already reduce your IP address within member states of the European Union, or in other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area and thereby anonymise it.

Google will use this information to evaluate your use of our site, to compile reports on website activity for us and to provide other services related to website and internet use. Google may also forward this information to third parties if this is required by law or if third parties process this data on behalf of Google.

Google will, according to its own statements, under no circumstances, associate your IP address with other Google data. You can prevent the installation of cookies by a corresponding setting of your browser software; however, we would like to point out that, in this case, you may not be able to use all the functions of our website to their full extent.

Furthermore, Google offers a Deactivation add-on for the most popular browsers, which gives you more control over what information Google collects about the websites you visit. The add-on informs the JavaScript (ga.js) of Google Analytics that no information should be forwarded to Google Analytics about website visits. However, the deactivation add-on for browsers from Google Analytics does not prevent information from being forwarded to us, or to other web analysis services that we may use. You can get more information on installation of the browser add-on via the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.

If you visit our site using a mobile end device (smartphone or tablet) instead, you must click on this link in order to prevent tracking by Google Analytics within this website in future. This is also possible as an alternative to the browser add-on mentioned above. By clicking the link an opt-out cookie is set in your browser, which is only valid for this browser and this domain. If you delete the cookies in this browser, the opt-out cookie is also deleted so that you have to click on the link again.

If you agree that Google can link your web and App browsing history to your Google Account and can use information from your Google Account to personalise ads, Google will use your information with Google Analytics data to create cross-device remarketing target group lists. To do this, Google Analytics first collects your Google-authenticated ID on our website, which is associated with your Google account (personally identifiable information). Google Analytics will then temporarily link your ID to your Google Analytics data in order to optimise our target groups.

If you don't agree to this, you can turn it off using the corresponding settings in the "My Account" section of your Google account.

Google CSE (Google Custom Search)

Within our web pages, the Google Custom Search Engine "Google CSE" is used as a central search service based on Art 6 (I) (f) GDPR. The integrated search service enables a comfortable full text search for the contents of the website's internet offer. Access to this search function is possible using a search box integrated into the header of the individual web pages. The text Google™ user-defined search is displayed in the search box to inform users of the internet offer. The search field on these web pages ("search field") is provided by Google LLC ("Google") and is installed by us as a software module unmodified on our web pages. By entering a search term in the search box and pressing the enter key, the user activates the search function and the search results page is called up, which loads the corresponding search results from Google using a plug-in provided by Google. The plug-in enables an automated communication between the search results page called up and the Google service when the search results page is called up. The use of the search function provided by Google includes a dynamic transfer of data by the service provider, Google, to the search results page;
data is only transferred to Google after the user has activated the search box, started a full text search and called up the search results page. By using the search function within the search results page, user data is also transferred to Google at the same time. By using the full-text search and the associated access to the search results page, you agree to the use of the Google search service and thus also the transfer of data to the Google service. This includes, for example, the search terms you have entered and the IP address of the computer you are using. If you are logged in to Google at the same time, the Google service is able to assign the information directly to your user profile.

You should logout to prevent a collection of profile information about you. Google is certified under the EU-US Privacy Shield. A current certificate can be viewed at https://www.privacyshield.gov/list. Under this agreement between the US and the European Commission, the latter has established an adequate level of data protection for companies certified under the Privacy Shield. You can view more information from Google about handling user data (privacy statement) at https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=de.

Google AdSense

We use Google AdSense on our website. Google AdSense is a service from Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, for integrating advertisements.
Google AdSense uses so-called cookies, text files which are stored on your computer and thereby enable an analysis of your use of the website. Google AdSense also uses so-called Web Beacons. Using these Web Beacons, Google is able to evaluate information, such as the flow of visitors to our site. In addition to your IP address and the collection of the advertising formats displayed, this information is transmitted to Google in the USA, stored there and can be passed on by Google to contractual partners. However, Google does not merge your IP address with other data stored by you. You can prevent the installation of cookies by a corresponding setting on your browser; however, we would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all the functions of our website to their full extent. With the use of our website you declare that you agree with the processing of the data collected about you by Google in the manner described above and for the purpose named previously.

Google SiteSearch (Google AJAX Search API)

JavaScript code of the company Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA is downloaded onto our site. If you have activated JavaScript in your browser and have not installed a JavaScript blocker your browser may transfer personal data to Google. We do not know what data Google links to the data received and what purposes Google uses this data for. In order to prevent the execution of JavaScript Code by Google altogether you can install a JavaScript Blocker (e.g. www.noscript.net). You can find out more about this in the provider's data privacy statement:

https://www.google.com/intl/de_de/policies/privacy/.

Google Web Fonts

For the uniform display of fonts this site uses so-called Web Fonts, which are provided by Google. When you call up a page, your browser loads the required Web Fonts in your browser cache to correctly display texts and fonts. If your browser does not support Web Fonts a standard font is used by your computer.

You can find more information on Google Web Fonts at https://developers.google.com/fonts/faq and in Google’s privacy statement: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/.

Security

We have taken technical and administrative security precautions to protect your personal data against loss, destruction, manipulation and unauthorized access. All our employees and service providers working for us are bound by the applicable data protection laws.

Irrespective of the exercise of your right to deletion, we will delete your data immediately and completely, unless there is a legal transaction or legal obligation to retain it.

Right to restrict processing:

You may request us to restrict the processing of your data if

- you dispute the accuracy of the data for a period of time that allows us to verify the accuracy of the data.

- the processing of the data is unlawful, but you refuse deletion and instead request a restriction on the use of the data,

Right to data portability:

You may require us to provide you with the data you have provided to us in a structured, current and machine-readable format and to allow you to pass this data to another responsible person without our interference, provided that

Right of objection:

If we process your data for legitimate reasons, you can object to this data processing at any time;
