Privacy statement

Data protection

The operators of this site take the protection of your personal information very seriously. We treat your personal information confidentially and in accordance with the legal data protection regulations and this data protection declaration.

As a rule, you are able to use our website without giving any personal information. Where personal information (for example name, address or email addresses) is collected on our site, it always takes place on a voluntary basis wherever possible. Your information is not forwarded to third parties without your express permission.

We wish to point out that online data transmission (for example when communicating by email) may present security loopholes. Complete protection of your data from third-party access is not possible.

This information cannot be assigned to specific people. This information will not be collated with other data sources. We reserve the right to verify the information retrospectively if we become aware of specific evidence of illegal use.

Cookies

Internet sites partially use so-called cookies. Cookies do not cause any damage to your computer, nor do they contain any viruses. Cookies serve to make our service provision more user-friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser.

Most of the cookies we use are "session cookies". They are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your end device until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognise your browser at your next visit.

You can also set your browser so that you are informed when cookies are placed on your computer and only allow them in individual cases, block cookies for specific cases or in general and activate automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. The functionality of this website can be restricted by deactivating cookies.

Handling of personal data

The operators of this site collect, use and pass on your personal data only if it is permitted within the legal limits or if you agree with the data collection. Personal data are all information which serve to identify your person and which can be traced back to you, for example your name, your e-mail address and telephone number.

If you provide us with your enquiries via a contact form, we will store your information from the enquiry form, including the contact details provided by you, for the purposes of processing the enquiry and in the event of follow-up questions.

Google Analytics

This website uses functions of the Google Analytics web analysis service. The provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, US.

Google Analytics uses "cookies". These are text files that are stored on your computer and enable your use of the website to be analysed. The information of your use of this website that is generated by the cookie is generally transmitted to a Google server in the US and stored there.

IP anonymisation

We have activated the IP anonymisation function on this website. As a result, Google will first shorten your IP address within European Union Member States and in other countries that are signatories of the Agreement on the European Economic Area before transmission to the US. Only in exceptional cases the full IP address will be transmitted to a Google server in the US and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, compile reports on the website activities and provide other services connected with the website use and internet use to the website operator. The IP address sent by your browser within Google Analytics is not collated with other data by Google.

In addition, you can prevent Google from collecting the data generated by the cookie pertaining to your website usage (including your IP address) and from carrying out processing of this data by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de

Order Data Processing

We have concluded an agreement with Google for order data processing and will fully implement the strict regulations of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) when using Google Analytics.

SSL encryption

For security reasons and to protect the transfer of confidential content, such as enquiries you send us as the site operator, this site uses SSL encryption. You can detect an encrypted connection when the browser address bar changes from "http://" to "https://" and by the lock symbol in your browser bar. If SSL encryption is activated, the information that you send us cannot be read by third parties.

Objection to advertising emails

We expressly object to the use of the contact data published within the framework of the obligation to provide publication details to send advertising and information material that has not been explicitly requested. The operators of the site expressly reserve the right to take legal action in the event of unsolicited mailing of advertising information, for example in the form of spam emails.

Right to information, deletion and blocking

At any time you have the right to get free information about your personal data that is stored, its origin and recipients and the purpose of data processing, as well as the right to the correction, blocking or deletion of this data. If you have any further questions about personal data, you can contact us at any time at the address given under the publishing information.
