Personal data is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. An identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, on-line identification or one or more special characteristics. Or an expression of the physical, physiological, genetic, psychological, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.
The processing of personal data may be carried out with or by means of computer systems and shall include the following operations: collection, recording, organisation, organisation, filing, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.
We process the personal information you provide to us through this website only for the purpose of corresponding with you and only for the purpose for which you have provided the data to us.
Every time you access our website, we automatically and temporarily collect and store information that your browser leaves behind during your use of our website and every time you call up a file on our website in a so-called log file. Prior to storage, each data record is made anonymous by changing the IP address. In detail, the following data is stored for each access/retrieval:

  • Anonymised IP address
  • Date and time of the retrieval
  • Page called up/ name of the file called up
  • Web browser and requesting domain
  • Amount of data transmitted
  • Message whether the access was successful

Processing is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 letter f GDPR on the basis of our justified interest in improving the stability and functionality of our website. The data will not be passed on or used in any other way. However, we reserve the right to check the server log files subsequently if there are concrete indications of illegal use.

Use and disclosure of personal information

Your personal data (e.g. surname, first name, telephone, address, e-mail address), which you provide us with via this website, e.g. via our contact form, will only be processed for the purpose of corresponding with you, processing your enquiry or for the purpose for which you have provided us with the data.
The data will not be evaluated in any other way, except for statistical purposes and then basically in anonymised form.
If we use service providers to carry out or fulfil tasks for us, the contractual relationships are regulated in writing in accordance with the provisions of the European Data Protection Basic Regulation (GDPR) and other country-specific data protection regulations applicable to us. This applies to the following categories of recipient: IT service providers to ensure security and confidentiality, transport service providers.
In addition, we may share anonymous data with partners in order to carry out statistical analyses. All these parties are prohibited from using your personal information unless it is used for our offer.

Storage duration of your data

Your personal data, which has been communicated to us via our website, will only be stored until the purpose for which it was entrusted to us has been fulfilled and the storage is necessary. Insofar as storage periods under commercial, tax or administrative law must be observed, the storage period for certain data can be up to 6 or 10 years.

Your rights

As a data subject whose data we process, you are entitled to extensive rights in accordance with the EU basic data protection regulation. You have the right to be informed about your personal data processed by us, in particular about the purposes of the processing, the categories of personal data processed, the recipients or categories of recipients to whom your data have been or will be disclosed, the envisaged storage period or the criteria for determining the storage period. If you no longer consent to the processing or storage of your personal data or if your data are inaccurate, you have the right to have them corrected, deleted or limited. Upon your request or revocation, we will make the necessary corrections or arrange for the deletion or limitation of the processing of your data or make the necessary corrections to the extent that this is possible under the applicable law. Furthermore, if you have given your consent, you have the right to object at any time to the processing for the future, the right to data transfer and the right to complain to a supervisory authority.

Right to object to data collection in specific cases and to direct mail

You have the right to object at any time, for reasons arising from your particular situation, to the processing of your personal data, which is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 Par. 1 f GDPR (balancing of interests), e.g. against direct advertising. Unless we can prove that there are no compelling reasons for processing which are worthy of protection, which could affect your interests,
rights and freedoms prevail or if the processing serves the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims, we will not process your data further.

Use of cookies

In order to make the visit to our website user-friendly and also to enable the use of certain functions, we use so-called cookies on various pages. Cookies are small text files. They are downloaded from the websites you visit to your computer or mobile device.
When using cookies, we collect and process certain user information from you in the respective individual scope of the text files, such as browser and location data and IP address. Cookies are automatically deleted after a specified period of time, which may vary depending on the cookie. If you neither deactivate cookies nor use the opt-out function, we assume that you accept the use of cookies.

Most of the cookies we use are so-called "session cookies" and are technically necessary, e.g. to enable basic functions of the website and its proper functioning. These cookies are stored on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR, unless another legal basis has been specified.
You can influence the setting of cookies via your browser settings. These enable you to be informed about the setting of cookies, to allow cookies only in individual cases, to exclude acceptance in individual cases or in general, and to delete cookies automatically when the browser is closed. Deactivating cookies may, under certain circumstances, restrict the functionality of our website.

Technically required cookies

These cookies are essential for the operation of our website and enable basic functions such as navigation or access to protected areas.
These are primarily session cookies or connection cookies, which are not permanently stored on your computer or mobile device.

These cookies enable our website to remember settings and choices you have made during use, such as your language preference or the region in which you are located.
Functional cookies are not automatically deleted when you close the browser and are therefore stored permanently on your computer or mobile device until you delete them.

Statistic Cookies

These cookies enable us to understand how visitors to our website interact with it by collecting information at an abstract level. The analyses and measurements obtained from this enable us to determine which of our sub-pages are most visited or which are least clicked on. They help us to improve our website and increase its user-friendliness.
Statistics Cookies are not automatically deleted when you close your browser and are therefore stored permanently on your computer or mobile device until you delete them

Marketing Cookies

These cookies, also known as tracking cookies, are mostly set by third parties through our site and allow us to collect information about your surfing habits and, if necessary, to adjust advertising and marketing measures to display personalised advertising to you.

Use of script libraries (Google Webfonts)

In order to display the contents of our website correctly and graphically appealing across all browsers, we use script and font libraries such as Google Web Fonts (https://www.google.com/webfonts/). Google Web Fonts are transferred to the cache of your browser to avoid multiple loading. If your browser does not support Google Web Fonts or prevents access, content will be displayed in a standard font.
When you access the script or font libraries, a connection to the library operator is automatically established. It is theoretically possible, but currently unclear whether and for what purposes the operator of the respective library also collects data.
The privacy policy of the library operator Google can be found here: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/
