Data protection policy

Thank you for your interest in our website. Protecting your privacy is very important to us. The following contains detailed information about how we handle your data.

Saving of access data in server log files
You can visit our websites without giving information about yourself. We only save access data in so-called server log files, such as the names of the files requested, date and time of access, quantity of data transferred and the requesting provider. These data are analysed exclusively to guarantee undisturbed operation of the site and to improve our offer, and do not permit us any inferences about you.

Data collection and use to implement the contract
We collect personal data if you freely disclose it to us by making contact with us by email. We use the data you have given us to execute the contract and process your queries.
After the contract has been fully executed, your data are locked against further use and deleted after the retention period under tax and commercial law has expired, provided that you have not expressly given your consent to further use of your data, or we have reserved the right to further use of these data which is permitted by law, and of which we inform you below.

Use of cookies
We use so-called cookies on different pages in order to make the visit to our website more attractive and to enable the use of certain functions. These are small text files that are stored on your end device. Some of the cookies we use are deleted at the end of your browser session, i.e. after you close your browser (so-called session cookies). Other cookies remain on your device and allow us to recognise your computer upon your next visit (persistent cookies). You can set-up your browser software in such a way that you are informed about the placement of cookies and can decide separately whether to accept cookies, accept cookies for particular cases, or generally exclude them. Our website′s functionality can be restricted if you do not accept cookies.

Use of Google (Universal) Analytics for web analysis
This website uses Google (Universal) Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. (www.google.de). Google (Universal) Analytics uses methods which allow an analysis of your use of the website, such as, for example, so-called "cookies", text files which are stored on your computer. The information generated on your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA, where it is stored. By activating IP anonymisation on this website, the IP address will first be shortened before transfer within the member states of the European Union or other contracting member states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. The full IP address will only be transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there in exceptional cases. The anonymised IP address communicated by your browser as part of Google Analytics is not joined with any other data held by Google.

You can prevent the collection of data generated by the cookies and on your use of the website (including your IP address) by Google as well as the processing of this data by Google, by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de
As an alternative to the browser plug-in, you can click this link to prevent collection by Google Analytics on this website in the future. An opt-out cookies is thereby stored on your end device. If you delete your cookies, you need to click on the link again.

Right to information and contact options
You have a right to free information about the personal data we have saved about you and, if applicable, a right to correct, block, or delete these data. For questions about the collection, processing, or use of your personal data, for information, correction, locking, or deletion of data, and revocation of previously-issued consents, or to prohibit one particular use of data, please contact us directly via the contact data under "Contact".
