The security of your data is important to us: so all the areas of our website where you can actively input data use encryption systems such as SSL (Secure Socket Layer) to protect your data against being accessed by unauthorized third parties.

1. Data protection

The operators of this website take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the statutory data protection regulations and this privacy policy.

It is generally possible to use our website without it being necessary to provide any personal details. If personal details are collected on our website (such as names, addresses or e-mail addresses), this is always done on a voluntary basis wherever possible. This information is not passed on to third parties without your express permission.

We draw attention to the fact that data sent over the Internet (when communicating by e-mail for example) may be subject to security loopholes. It is not possible to completely protect data from being accessed by third parties.

2. Cookies

The website uses so-called cookies in part. Cookies do not damage your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies are used to make our service more user-friendly, more effective and safer. Cookies are small text files stored on your computer and saved by your browser.

Most of the cookies used by us are so-called “session cookies”. They are automatically deleted after your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your device until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognise your browser on your next visit.

You can configure your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and only allow cookies in individual cases, exclude the acceptance of cookies in certain cases or in general and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. The deactivation of cookies may restrict the functionality of this website.

3. Server log files

The provider of this website automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files that your browser automatically sends to us. These are:

  • Browser type and browser version
  • Operating system used
  • Referrer URL
  • Host name of the accessing computer
  • Time of the server request

This data cannot be matched to particular individuals. This data is not merged with any other data sources. We reserve the right to subsequently check this data if we become aware of concrete evidence of illegal activities.

4. Contact form

If you send us enquiries using the contact form, we store your details from the enquiry form including the contact data supplied by you for the processing of your enquiry and in case of follow-up questions. We do not pass on this data without your consent.

5. Google Analytics

This website uses functions of the Google Analytics web analytics service. This is provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”. These are text files stored on your computer that facilitate an analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is generally transmitted to and stored on a Google server in the USA.

IP anonymisation

We have activated the IP anonymisation function on this website. This means that your IP address is truncated by Google within member states of the European Union or in other states that are party to the agreement in the European Economic Area prior to the transfer to the USA. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. Google will use this information on behalf of the provider of this website to evaluate your use of the website, compile reports about website activity and provide the website operator with other services related to website usage and Internet activity. Google does not link the IP address transferred by your browser as part of Google Analytics with any other data held by Google.
