Privacy policy

Thank you for your interest in our website. The protection of your personal data is important to us. In the following you will find information on the handling of your data that is collected through your use of our website. Your data will be processed in accordance with the legal data protection regulations. Insofar as links are provided to other websites, we have neither influence nor control over the linked contents and the data protection regulations there. We recommend checking the data protection declarations on the linked websites to determine whether and to what extent personal data is collected, processed, used or made available to third parties.

Definitions

Our data protection declaration should be simple and understandable for everyone. The data protection declaration generally uses the official terms of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The official definitions are explained in Art. 4 GDPR .

Data processing by visiting our website

When you visit our website, it is technically necessary that data is transmitted to our web server via your Internet browser. The following data is recorded during a running connection for communication between your Internet browser and our web server:

• Visited domain
• Date and time of the request
• Page from which the file was requested
• Access status (file transferred, file not found, etc.)
• Web browser and operating system used
• IP address of the requesting computer
• Amount of data transferred

We collect the listed data to ensure a smooth connection establishment of the website and to enable a comfortable use of our website by the users. In addition, the log file serves the evaluation of system security and stability as well as administrative purposes. The legal basis for the temporary storage of data or log files is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.

Personal Information

We collect personal data within the scope of data avoidance and data economy only to the extent and as long as it is necessary for the use of our website or is prescribed by law. We take the protection of your personal data seriously and strictly adhere to the relevant legal regulations and this data protection declaration when collecting and processing personal data. If the purpose of data collection ceases to apply or if the end of the legal storage period has been reached, the data collected will be blocked or deleted. Our website can be used regularly without passing on personal data. If we collect personal data – such as your name, address or e-mail address – this data collection is voluntary. This data will not be disclosed to third parties without your express consent.

Please note that data on the Internet is generally not always transmitted securely. Especially in e-mail traffic, data exchange protection cannot be guaranteed.

Information, deletion, blocking

You will receive information at any time and free of charge about the personal data we have stored about you as well as about the origin, the recipient and the purpose of data collection and data processing. You also have the right to request the correction, blocking or deletion of your data. This does not apply to data which is kept due to legal regulations or which is required for proper business transactions. Data is stored in a lock file for control purposes so that data can be locked at any time. If data are not collected by a legal archiving obligation, we delete your data at your request. If the archiving obligation applies, we block your data. For all questions and concerns regarding the correction, blocking or deletion of personal data, please contact our data protection officer under the contact data in this data protection declaration or at the address stated in the imprint.

When registering for the newsletter, in addition to the e-mail address required for sending the newsletter, we store the IP address via which you have registered for the newsletter as well as the date and time of registration and confirmation so that we can trace any possible misuse at a later point in time. You can cancel the newsletter at any time via the link inserted in each newsletter or by sending an E-mail to the above-mentioned responsible person. After your cancellation, your E-mail address will be deleted from our newsletter distribution list immediately, unless you have expressly consented to continued use of the data collected or continued processing is otherwise legally permissible.

Google Web Fonts

This site uses web fonts provided by Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”) to uniformly display fonts. Google Web Fonts allows us to use external fonts, so-called Google Fonts. When you visit our website, the required Google Font is loaded from your web browser into your browser cache to display texts and fonts correctly. This is necessary so that your browser can also show an optically improved representation of our texts. If your browser does not support this feature, your computer will use a standard font for display. These web fonts are integrated by a server call, usually a Google server in the USA. This transfers to the server which page of our website you have visited. Google also stores the IP address of the browser of the visitor’s terminal device.

We use Google Web Fonts for optimization purposes, in particular to improve the use of our Internet presence for you and to make its design more user-friendly. This is also our legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. Google has signed and certified itself under the Privacy Shield Agreement between the European Union and the USA. By doing so, Google undertakes to comply with the standards and regulations of European data protection law. Further information can be found in the following linked entry: https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt00000000001L5AAI&status=Active

Further information on data protection can be found in Google’s data protection declaration:

SSL encryption

Our website uses SSL encryption for the transmission of confidential or personal content from our users. This encryption is activated, for example, during the processing of payment transactions and for enquiries you make to us via our website.

Please make sure that the SSL encryption is activated by your side during corresponding activities. The use of encryption is easy to recognize: The display in your browser line changes from “http://” to “https://”. Data encrypted via SSL cannot be read by third parties. Only transmit your confidential information if SSL encryption is activated and if in doubt, please contact us.

Contradiction advertising E-mails

In the context of the legal imprint obligation we must publish our contact data. These are partially used by third parties to send unwanted advertising and information. We hereby object to any sending of advertising material of any kind not expressly authorized by us. We also expressly reserve the right to take legal action against the unwanted and unsolicited sending of advertising material. This applies in particular to so-called spam E-mails, spam letters and spam faxes. We point out that the unauthorized transmission of advertising material may affect competition law, civil law and criminal law. Spam E-mails and spam faxes in particular can lead to high claims for damages if they disrupt business operations due to overcrowding of mailboxes or fax machines.

Duration of storage of personal data

The duration of the storage of personal data is determined by the relevant legal retention periods (e.g. from commercial law and tax law). After expiry of the respective period, the corresponding data is routinely deleted. If data is necessary for contract fulfilment or contract initiation or if we have a legitimate interest in further storage, the data will be deleted if it is no longer necessary for these purposes or if you make use of your right of revocation or objection.

Changes to our privacy policy

We reserve the right to adapt or update this data protection declaration if necessary in compliance with the applicable data protection regulations. In this way, we can adapt them to current legal requirements and take account of changes in our services, e.g. when introducing new services. The most current version applies to your visit.
