Data protection statement
Version dated: August 3, 2020
An overview of data protection
Personal data is any information that relates to an identified or identifiable natural person. What is essential here, therefore, is whether a personal reference can be made using the collected data. This includes information such as your name, your address, your telephone number or your email address. Information that is not directly linked to your real identity - such as actual web pages or the number of users of a page - is not included in personal data.
How do we collect and process your personal data?
When you visit our website, data are collected automatically and saved temporarily by our web servers. These data are primarily technical data such as the identification data of the browser used and the operating system type, date and time of the page view, the websites you visit on our site and the website from which you are visiting us. Personal data such as your name, your address, your telephone number or email addresses will not be collected, unless you provide this data voluntarily, e.g. in the context of a registration, a survey, the execution of a contract or an information request.
How we use your personal data and how we disclose it
If the online service includes the option to enter personal or commercial data (email addresses, names, addresses, etc.), the input of these data takes place voluntarily, your personal data is collected only to the extent necessary to reply.
We will not pass on, sell or otherwise transfer your personal data to third parties.
How long will your data be stored?
In principle, we store all information that you transmit to us until the respective purpose, e.g. the contractual purpose has been fulfilled. For inquiries until they are processed, for newsletters until you unsubscribe from the newsletter. If longer storage is provided by law, the storage takes place within this framework. If you no longer wish us to use your data, we will, of course, comply with this request immediately. The stored personal data will be deleted if you revoke your consent to its storage, if knowledge of the data is no longer required for the fulfilment of the purpose for which it was stored or if the storage is inadmissible for other legal reasons. Data for invoicing and accounting purposes are not affected by a request for deletion.
Within the scope of our website we partly use so-called cookies. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser. Cookies do not harm your computer and do not contain any viruses. Rather, they serve to communicate the usefulness and number of users of our websites, as well as to make our offers more convenient, effective and secure.
The cookies we use are firstly so-called “session cookies”. These are only stored temporarily for the duration of your use of one of our websites and are automatically deleted after your visit. Secondly, we also use “permanent cookies” that are stored on your device’s memory until you delete them. The purpose of the use of these cookies is to be able to record information about visitors who repeatedly access our website and to offer you optimal user guidance. Permanent cookies only contain an identification number. Name, IP address etc. are not stored. An individual profile regarding your usage behaviour is not formed. You can also use our offers without cookies. In this respect, it is possible to deactivate the storage of cookies in your browser or to limit them to certain websites. Alternatively, your browser can be configured to automatically accept cookies under certain conditions or to always reject them, or to automatically delete cookies when closing your browser. Disabling cookies may limit the functionality of this website.
Manage Cookie Preferences
To be able to use all functions and offers to the full extent, all cookies should be activated.
You can agree to the use of optional cookies by activating the button or reject them by deactivating it.
You can change your information on the use of optional cookies here at any time and subsequently revoke or grant authorization.
SSL or TLS encryption
This site uses SSL or TLS encryption for security reasons and for the protection of the transmission of confidential content, such as the inquiries you send to us as the site operator. You can recognize an encrypted connection in your browser’s address line when it changes from “http://” to “https://” and the lock icon is displayed in your browser’s address bar. If SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transfer to us cannot be read by third parties.
If you wish to contact our company by email, we would like to point out that the confidentiality of the information provided is not guaranteed. The content of emails may be viewed by third parties. We, therefore, recommend that you only allow us to receive confidential information by post.
Your data protection rights
Within the framework of the applicable legal provisions, you have the right to free information about your stored personal data, their origin and possible recipients and the purpose of data processing (Art. 15 GDPR) and, if applicable, a right to correction of incorrect data (Art. 16 GDPR), deletion of these data (Art. 17 GDPR), the right to restriction of processing according to Art. 18 GDPR, to objection (Art. 21 GDPR) and the right to data transferability of data provided by you according to Art. 20 GDPR). The restrictions according to §§ 34 and 35 BDSG apply to the right to information and the right of cancellation. In addition, you also have a right of appeal to the responsible supervisory authority in the event of data protection violations (Art. 77 GDPR in conjunction with §19 BDSG).
Revocation of your consent to data processing or complaints
Many data processing processes are only possible with your express consent. You can revoke your consent at any time. If you have any questions, complaints or assertion of your data protection rights, please feel free to contact us.
If you have explicitly agreed, we will use your email address and voluntary personal data to send you our newsletter on a regular basis. All you need to do is to enter an email address in order to receive the newsletter. Additional personal details you have provided on a voluntary basis are merely used to personalise the newsletter.
