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 Internet protocol address of your Internet service provider, the website from which you visit us, the web pages you visit on our site and the date and duration of the visit as standard. This information is absolutely necessary for the technical transmission of the web pages and secure server operation. A personalized evaluation of this data does not take place.
If you send us data via contact form, this data will be stored on our servers in the course of data backup. Your data will only be used by us to process your request. Your data will be treated strictly confidential. It will not be passed on to third parties.
Personal data are data about your person. This includes, for example, your name, address and e-mail address. You do not have to disclose any personal data in order to visit our website. In some cases, we need your name and address as well as other information in order to be able to offer you the requested service.
The same applies in the event that we supply you with information material on request or when we respond to your inquiries. We only store the data that you have transmitted to us automatically or voluntarily.
When you use one of our services, we generally only collect the data that is necessary to provide you with our service. We may ask you for additional information, but this is voluntary. Whenever we process personal data, we do so to provide you with our service or to pursue our legitimate interests.
Automatically stored non-personal data
When you visit our websites, we store certain information for administrative and technical reasons. These are: Type and version of the browser used, date and time of access.
This data is anonymized and used only for statistical purposes or to improve our Internet and online services. This anonymized data is stored - separately from personal data - on secure systems and cannot be assigned to individual persons. This means that your personal data remains protected at all times.
When you visit our website, we may store information on your computer in the form of cookies. Cookies are small files that are transferred from an Internet server to your browser and stored on your computer. Only the IP address is stored as personal data. The information in the cookies allows us to recognize you the next time you visit our website, which makes it easier for you to use our services.
We use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. ("Google"). Google has submitted to the Privacy Shield agreement concluded between the European Union and the USA and has certified itself. Google thereby undertakes to comply with the standards and regulations of European data protection law. You can find more information in the entry linked below: https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active.
Google Analytics uses "cookies", which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about the use of this website by visitors to the site is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there.
In the event that IP anonymization is activated on this website, however, your IP address will be truncated beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. IP anonymization is active on this website. On our behalf, 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.
You can also prevent the transfer 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 plugin available at the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.
As an alternative to the browser plugin or within browsers on mobile devices, you can click on the following link to set an opt-out cookie that will prevent the collection by Google Analytics within this website in the future (this opt-out cookie only works in this browser and only for this domain. If you delete the cookies in your browser, you must click this link again): Google Analytics deactivate.
We have concluded an order data processing contract with Google and fully implement these strict requirements of the German data protection authorities when using Google Analytics.
This website uses the "demographic characteristics" function of Google Analytics. This allows reports to be generated that contain statements about the age, gender and interests of site visitors. This data comes from interest-based advertising from Google as well as visitor data from third-party providers. This data cannot be assigned to a specific person. You can deactivate this function at any time via the ad settings in your Google account or generally prohibit the collection of your data by Google Analytics as shown in the item "Objection to data collection".
We have taken technical and organizational measures and administrative security precautions to protect your personal data against loss, destruction, manipulation and unauthorized access. All our employees as well as service providers working for us are bound by the applicable data protection laws.
Whenever we collect and process personal data, it is encrypted before it is transmitted. This means that your data cannot be misused by third parties. Our security measures are subject to a continuous improvement process and our data protection statements are constantly being revised. Please make sure that you have the latest version.
