1. Collection of data

1.1 Informative use of the website
Each time you access one page of our website and each time a file is accessed, access data about that process is stored in a log file on the server.

This access data includes the following information:

The IP address of your computer is stored only for the time of your use of the website and is deleted or anonymized immediately after your browser is closed.

We collect the aforementioned data because this is technically necessary for you to be able to view our website and to ensure the stability and security of the website. The legal basis for this is Article 6(1)(f) GDPR (legitimate interest, specifically the needs-oriented design of the website).

1.2 Contact by e-mail
If you contact us by e-mail, the information you provide will be stored and processed in order to process the request, as well as in case of follow-up questions. We will delete the relevant data after the storage is no longer required or restrict the processing if statutory retention periods exist.

2. Disclosure of data
We do not share your personal information with third parties for marketing purposes. Your data may be shared if we are entitled or obliged to data transfer due to statutory provisions and / or official or judicial orders.

3. Cookies
In addition to the aforementioned usage data, cookies are stored on your computer when you use our website. These are small text files that are stored on your device and through which we receive certain information. However, cookies cannot run programs or transmit viruses to your computer. We use cookies to make the visit to our website attractive and to enable the use of certain functions, like a local version of the website in a local language.

We only collect “session” cookies, which are not usually stored after your browsing session has ended. These are used to establish your approximate location and to serve up the website in the appropriate country and local language. (IP address collection happens during this process.)

You may delete and block all cookies, or just certain types of cookies, via your browser settings. However, if you choose to block or delete cookies, this may affect the functionality of the website.

You can configure your browser settings according to your wishes and reject all cookies. Non-acceptance of cookies may limit the functionality of our website.

4. Google Analytics
We use Google Analytics, a web analytics service by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses small text files (“cookies”) on your device to allow us to analyze visitor behavior with a pseudonym. Information about your visitor behavior stored in cookies is transferred to web servers of Google in the USA and will be stored there. For this website, the function anonymize IP has been activated – therefore Google will anonymize your IP address on Google servers within the EU or the EEC prior to the transfer of data to the USA. In rare cases full IP addresses may be transferred to the USA and will then be anonymized there.

Google will use the information transferred as a Processor (GDPR Article 28) to analyze your visitor behavior, to provide web activity reports, and to provide services in relation to website use.

You may prevent the storage of cookies (including your IP address) by using appropriate settings in your browser and object to further processing by installing a browser plugin. Alternatively, you may store an opt-out cookie on your device to prevent future analysis of your visitor behaviour. However, if you choose to block or delete cookies, this may affect the functionality of the website.

We take all appropriate technical and organizational security measures to protect your data from manipulation, loss, destruction or unauthorized access by third parties. Our systems are secured against unauthorized access. In particular, your personal data is encrypted with us. We use the coding system SSL (Secure Socket Layer).

We expressly point out that despite all the technical precautions, the Internet does not permit absolute data security. We are not liable for acts of third parties.

6. Change of privacy policy
We reserve the right to change this privacy policy at any time in the future. The current version is always available on the website.

7. Rights
You have the right of access, rectification or erasure, limitation of processing, opposition to processing and data portability with respect to personal data concerning you.
